I need help again guys

 

I received a letter from a DCA advising they have bought an old credit card debt.

I received a Termination notice from the original creditor in December 09

and the account was disputed in 2010 after a CCA request.

 

On receipt of the agreement,

I was advised on here that it was unenforceable.

I stopped making payments over 5 years ago

but not quite 6 ( via a debt management company).

The dispute was never resolved and they eventually stopped harassing me.

 

Could you please advise what I should do now?

Nothing at the moment.

 

 

Keep letters and see how this develops.

 

 

If they start threatening any court claim,

you could send a CCA request,

as this new company might not have a copy and it might take time to get hold of.

Not vital but something worth spending £10 on.

 

You could do a full subject access request to the ORIGINAL creditor to see what you can dig up. EG PPI, unlawful credit card charges etc.

Apart from opening up possibilities for reclaims, you would also have paperwork that may give you options to add to your defence should the current owner issue court papers.

 

Knowledge is power, so make sure you have more than the current debt owner :D

Can the new owner also send an SAR request and acquire the same information and shouldn't all the relevant information be on the account they have bought?

When debt buyers purchase debts they normally do so in bulk and they normally only get details like name address account number and balance etc.

 

They can request copies of documentation regarding the account. BUT not to the same level as you can regarding a Subject Access Request. ( SAR)

 

A SAR is governed by legislation in the Data Protection Act that allows "You" as the "Data Subject" access to all personal information regarding yourself. Heres the thing, the debt buyer cannot request that level of detail. A Debt purchaser cannot do a subject access request.

 

Many claims fail as the DCs cannot get the correct paperwork.

 

One such example of this being helpful is should it go to court and they produce a "reconstructed Credit card agreement" using information they "think" is correct, you may have information provided by the Subject Access Request that proves some of the info provided in the recon is not accurate and therefore unenforceable.

they will only send you what info they hold on you and that is diddly squat. Dont communicate with them in any form as I doubt they have bought the debt otherwise you would have had a proper letter of assignment and you would be told exactly what the debt is and signed off by the company selling it to this dca rather than from the dca

I don't want to mention company names at this stage as I know DCA trolls search these threads for information relating to themselves.

 

I think they may have purchased it because their correspondence outlined the debt and value, they also enclosed a letter from the original creditor advising me that they had sold the debt to them, but not an official letter of assignment.

 

The letter from the OC was unreferenced with no account number.

But maybe you are right, they may be having another pop at it before it expires.

 

They have asked me to ring them and they will help me with repayments,

which I have no intention of doing.

 

I've gone through my bank statements and my last payment to the debt management company was April 2011, so sadly I may not have enough time to stall them.

 

Do you think the OC will have an accurate record of when my payments stopped.

 

The Default fell off my credit file a few months ago.

Another question please:- I also had another RBS credit card that is currently dormant, which expires in January 2017. When I submit an SAR for the resurrected account, will it flag that one up too?

Couple of questions for you:

 

When did you open this account?

Is it showing on any of the CRA files?

 

Noddle and clearscore are free web based sites for access to your CRA files and will show account start date if they are still within 6 yrs of last payment

Hi Martin

 

The account was opened in February 2002.

 

RBS terminated the account in September 2009 and I've disputed it ever since due to unenforceable agreement.

 

It no longer shows on CRA, it dropped off earlier this year.

 

However think I was still paying reduced payments whilst in dispute until April 2011.

 

Many Thanks

You definately need to sar rbs to get the full history on all the accounts you had

Arm yourself with as much info as you can now in case they try a claim before it becomes sb

Can anyone enlighten me please what I'm up against regarding Cabot, i.e. their reputation, competence and roughly how long before they usually issue a claim.

 

Many thanks

every debt buyer is about the same

its pot luck if they do anything

just remember

a DCA IS NOT A BAILIFF

and has

NO SUCH LEGAL POWERS

 

 

all they can do

is the same as you and I

issue a civil court claim.

 

 

and lose against CAG

Thanks dx, I'm doing my homework reading similar posts.

 

I have seen not admitting the debt or making payments for 6 years makes them SB.

 

This cc debt is within 9 months of being SB and I was trying to establish if I could realistically stall them until then.

 

I took this down the Unenforceable route with the original OC until they stopped chasing about 3/4 years ago,

 

could this be considered admitting the debt even though I was legally disputing it?

 

Sorry for being so naive

no lets it run

they are only chasing because SB is prob close or already gone.

 

 

you don't need to send/do anything

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
