    • Amazing thanks, I am not sure what to type as this is the first time I have got to this stage with the FOS, but my letter below is a start and would appreciate any comments/amends to suit:   Complaint about MYJAR Limited - Trading as MYJAR Reference Number XXXXX   Thank you for your email of the 29th June 2020, the contents of which are noted.   I have to say I am somewhat surprised and disappointed by the outcome of this and I would like to explain why.   Firstly, I attach a spreadsheet showing the state of my credit file.  This show the Default date to/from the amount of the Default, including CCJs.  In total I had 10 Defaults and 3 active CCJs at the time of the first loan taken out with MyJar.   Two of the CCJs were paid off in July 2017, however, and still remain on my credit file until September 2020/March 2021 respectively.   This should have been a sufficient warning to MyJar that they should not have lent any monies to me whatsoever.  However, they went ahead and, as you can see continued to lend to me each time, when all of the Defaults and CCJs were still active on my credit file.   Also, with regards to the table below, you can clearly see that another loan was taken out straight after the existing one.  I understand that you cannot have more than one MyJar loan at any one time, but what I would do is use my salary to clear the loan and then borrow again from MyJar to cover the amount that I had paid off….. in a sense “robbing Peter to pay Paul”.   Loan Date Taken Date Repaid Instalments Amount Highest Repayment 1 05/11/2017 22/11/2017 6 £1,000.00 £284.63 2 05/12/2017 06/02/2018 12 £1,475.00 £266.20 3 16/03/2018 18/07/2018 12 £800.00 £117.87 4 23/07/2018 outstanding 12 £725.00 £110.82   I would also like to state that Loan 4 is still outstanding as the account has been placed on hold whilst the investigation took place with yourself.  They have, however, offered me a settlement figure of £600 and to clear this balance at a rate that is acceptable to myself.   Looking back at previous correspondence, I still feel that all interest and charges that I have paid should be refunded.  This totals £725.90 across all loans.  This would therefore settle Loan 4 of £600 and the remaining monies of £125.90 owed to myself.   I would therefore ask that my case is reviewed with the additional information stated above.
    • Hello to all.  Any help or advice is greatly received.                      I traded in my car almost a year ago and purchased a second hand kia optima 2013 with around 75000 on the clock, and 127 a month in HP payments. After 5 and a half months of normal use the engine seized, the reverse camera and sensors no longer worked and the passenger seat belt alarm continuously sounds at various times when no one is seated in it. I had also needed to renew pads and a brake calliper almost 4 months after purchase. I had not raised concerns to the brake components as they would be considered wear and tear.                     Being in the industry I dropped the oil and found it to be extremely thick and probably not circulating to the top of the engine, i.e. the oil had not been renewed in a very long time (there is no oil light on the dash or any indication of fault or maintenance due) I retained the oil filter, and opened a resolver case, with tall the faults listed.                 Upon contacting the dealer and informing him of what happened he indicated he wanted no responsibility towards rectifying the problem as close brothers were technically the owner. I approached close brothers (18th February)who started the ball rolling and approached dealer again who formally by letter refused liability.                              Close brothers then sent an engineer to inspect my listed problems, this was visual as the vehicle will not move, after three weeks the report was with my case handler.  I requested this report twice but have yet to see it.  Close brothers informed me that the report was inconclusive and they would need to move to a more through inspection.             At this stage the pandemic hit, at no point did I stop work and had to continue on charity and the diminished public transport to commute to work (140 miles a week)  no courtesy car or rental was provided.  I maintained contact with close brothers throughout, and was given the same update, they were waiting for the engineering firm to do an assessment but they were only doing key workers . Despite me telling them I was a key worker, nothing was done until the easing of the lockdown. I was informed that ACE vehicle inspection would contact me to collect the oil filter.                             Eventually this happened on the 18th of June and I phoned each week to chase. I was informed on the 30th that the report was showing on the portal and my case handler (simon) would look at it and call me back. I received no call and called on the 1st with the same responses. Today (2nd July) I got Simon who tells me that the report is showing on the portal but when he went to open it, it was not there and he would chase the engineering firm and get back to me in a couple of hours.                     I believe I am being taken for a mug now and am unsure weather I should escalate my revolver case to the regulator or any other advice, I'm therefore at this forums mercy any advice will be greatly received. 
    • Yeah I think you're probably right. I cancelled it anyway because the balance was due on the 10th July and I thought if I held out for an alternative and rejected it I might loose my deposit. Virgin are not answering calls from anyone not flying within 14 days by which time  the balance due date will be well past. I didn't want to pay the balance just to keep my deposit and get it all back in 4 months. Better to cancel the whole thing and get my deposit back now.   The holiday is in October so I think it will be fine to travel by then. I still plan to take a holiday on the same dates but I doubt I will get 10 days in the Caribbean (or anywhere long haul) for the same price so will probably go somewhere in Europe. It's just frustrating when I see basically the same holiday advertised on the same dates but for 50% more than the one they just cancelled.   I'm not too worried about Covid 19 and plan to travel as soon as the quarantine rules are lifted.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Can anyone tell me what a DC means when they want to drop the case but ask if I'm willing to agree to a no costs settlement? I always denied the disputed debt and complained to them for putting entries on my credit file, the O/C never did it.

Either to discontinue the claim or withdraw it by consent...providing you agree to a no costs settlement. (you wont claim any costs...not that you could if its a small claims case)

It was fast track, we got to the stage of exchanging witness statements, but they were not ready, they said they are dropping the case.

Thanks Andy

If its fast track then you may be able to claim costs if they drop it.

 

You have two choices.

 

1. Agree and claim is dropped and no costs claimed by either side.

 

2. Say No, and they may either continue (although we assume you are confident of winning, and getting costs) or they may discontinue it without your consent and in this scenario you could claim costs.

 

So its a bit of a gamble between 1. It all ends or 2. Risk that you could possibly loose, plus some people may want it to end anyway just to save the hassle.

 

Possible third option, you agree to discontinue but for £XX amount, you could then haggle/ping pong letters back n forth till you agree on amount.

Thank you Andy,

I said I will consider it but I want the entry removed from my credit file in order to agree.

Can I let you know what happens if I come back to this thread again or do I start a new thread?

Oh yes you could agree to discontinue if they agree to other terms, people often forget that both sides are free to come to an agreement NOTE mark any correspondence Without prejudice save as to costs.

Ah! The solicitor asked if WE could speak without prejudice on the phone, so I must remember that too.

Thanks very much Andy.

Everything was in writing until now, when I rang them to see if they were ready to exchange witness statements because I wasn't going to let them see mine first if I could help it.

If you are a LiP its acceptable to put down a few hours of research, etc at LiP rate £18/£19 whatever it is, at my case (which would of been small track but I put in strike out claim which as allocation hadnt at that stage occurred was treated as fast track), I put in claim for about £600 costs, Judge said that 2/3rds rule applied (where a LiP can only claim max 2/3rds of what solicitor would of charged), she said that a solicitor would of charged 2 hours at £200 = £400, so I got about £300, I listed quite a few hours research etc

Andy, thank you,

I have done a great amount of research over the past 6 months since this started, this site has been really helpful in guiding me too.

Will take this on board. When it is done I hope I can give information which might help others.

So are you going to proceed to trial or accept the discontinuance and try for costs?

Not sure yet Andy, have to wait until they come across with their proposed terms in writing, have only discussed it with their solicitors so far.

They may have a problem in removing the CR entry, that would mean admission that the DC put it on there.

But does AndyOrchs link to CPR 38.6 actually relate to WASTED costs, I thought that the definition for Wasted costs was something a bit different ? See here > http://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/making-a-case-for-wasted-costs-claims-for-wasted-costs-present-the-courts-with-the-problem-of-balancing-the-public-interest-against-the-professions-reputation/19498.fullarticle

 

Its where the Solicitor acts unreasonably, simply decided to discontinue a case isnt Wasted costs, its snormal costs ?, I know that in the ACS Law case the defendants went for Wasted costs as the solicitor who was also in this case the joint claimant made a complete cock up of everything.

 

In any event when claiming for costs I use the proper form N620 (although im not sure if its really designed for LiPs) > http://www.familylaw.co.uk/system/uploads/attachments/0002/0943/N260_CPR_Form.pdf

But am I right in thinking that this is only if it carries on going to court and is not discontinued with the agreement of the defendant?

andydd you must be referring to fixed costs which is covered under cpr part 45 which would only apply if it went to trial and not discontinued.

Hoping to agree to discontinuance but will have to see what the written terms are for that first..

I dont think so, costs apply as soon as a claim is started and in fact I recall a case where one side that they could claim some costs even pre court claim where they sent letters before action, etc.

Yes in my case it went to strike out trail so it was pre-allocation and pre- the actual trail (which didnt go ahead).

Discontinuance Update: "By mutual consent, each party to pay own costs." That's fine by me.

Will give a further update once it has gone through, is done and dusted, don't want to tempt fate.:wink:

Thanks so much for all your input here.
