    • I'm sorry but I don't have a lot of time at the moment. Please will you read around the other Hermes stories – if you haven't done so already. There are some suggested letters of claim in those. We don't have a template for this and I would suggest that you draft your own letter of claim and post it here before you send it. Also, make sure that you read around the forum about taking a small claim in the County Court and that you know all the steps. You can be certain that you will have to issue the papers. You can be certain that Hermes will ignore your letter of claim and they will only start taking you seriously once you have issue the court papers. This means that if you send the letter of claim giving them 14 days then on the fifteenth day you must issue the papers. Otherwise don't bother. Don't bluff. Be aware of your risk factors – which are that if you lose, then you won't get your money back and also you would have lost your claim fee – and if they push you to pay an allocation fee – which is quite likely – you will lose this as well. For the present claim fees and allocation fees, please have a look at the court services website. However you are probably looking at something in the region of about hundred pounds or so all told for a claim of this value. If you succeed then you will get your money back, plus interest plus your costs. We do our best to advise you here that you have to realise that the end of the day it is your risk. As I've already said, it is an extraordinary industry – because they will do it – which requires you to pay delivery fee and then if they don't carry out their side of the contract for some reason rather they don't have to offer any redress to you at all – often on the basis that you didn't ensure them against their own negligence. This is an extraordinary state of affairs. The whole industry does it this way and it seems to be a culture which has been accepted for a long time – maybe 30 or 40 years – so that now consumers think that that's the way it is. It's really quite surprising that this hasn't been directly addressed in legislation – but it hasn't. Instead you will have to fall back on the unfair terms provisions in the Consumer Rights Act. Post a draft of the letter of claim and we'll have a look at it later on
    • I agree. They are putting you back in the position you'd have been if they'd said what they should have ( "We can upgrade you to Sky Q. You'll need a new dish to use Q. If you want to revert to the non-Q system in future it'd need to be a 'hybrid' dish that supports both".)   I don't think you can realistically expect more.
    • but not related to this a/C  i bet the sar will reveal the real truth of what the balance really is made of.   even if this did result in a speculative DCA court claim. we don't lose many OD claims here.   dx  
    • yes they will and the contract if they request a further hearing.   .......................   n244 .......   i do not believe the claimant had a valid and paid for contract covering the year of the offence with the land owner or their agents.   i do believe the Claimant ANPR System had the relevant council planning permission to be used or erected on poles at the site.   i do not believe the Claimant signs at the site neither had the required council planning permission nor suitably conveyed the legal terms of any contract the driver at the time of parking could ever be able to agree to by reading them.   i claim the cost of my set aside fee from the claimant should i be successful.    
    • Hi   1. Have all seven residents complained officially to the Local Authority of the overgrown conifers and had a response in writing?   2. Were the Local Authority informed that the several residents were employing a contractor to cut back their conifer trees due to them being overgrown?   I would also suggest asking the contractor that carried out the work if they could do a letter for you explaining the work they carried out and the advice given about trimming as they remain the LA property.

    • 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

Recommended Posts

Today I received a Claim Form for an old Bank Of Scotland Credit Card debt that had been passed on to IDEM Securities Limited.

 

I had been sending regular monthly payments to Idem via Standing Order, last payment sent was January 2016.

 

I had sent a signed for CCA Request on 28 December 2015 to IDEM SERVICING.

 

The reply to my CCA request was:

IDEM acknowledged they were unable to supply a copy

and acknowledged until they could do so the agreement cannot be enforced.

 

in March 2016 they wrote again saying they have now received a copy from LLOYDS BANKING GROUP and enclosed a copy.

 

No signatures whatsoever are shown and just a print off of Repayment and Interest Charging, all looks like a generic print off.

 

I never made any communication whatsoever with IDEM from this point.

 

They tried phoning me daily and leaving messages on my answer machine which i never responded to.

 

They then wrote to me in April 2016 saying they were unable to speak with me.

 

Then they wrote in May 2016 saying they are keen to speak with me.

 

Then on 14th July they wrote saying account transferred to Litigation.

 

Today I received the County Court Claim Form with Issue Date 27 July 2016.

 

I have logged into MCOL and done acknowledgement of service, and defend all.

 

I have also a CPR 31.14 request to send signed for to Claimant in the morning.

 

I also at this moment have a Claim Form going on with PRA-Halifax(LLoyds) which i have a thread on the forum,

i have filed defence on that, and awaiting the 28 days to see if gets stayed,

so i already was aware with MCOL and defend all being way to go.

 

I thought it would still be worth while posting a new thread with this particular claim that has arrived today,

just incase any different cause of action is best,

both cases are very similar intruth as both have not provided a true copy of CCA.

 

Any help/advice as always truly appreciated!

 

Thank you

UPDATE:

CPR 31;14 showing as received and signed for 05 AUG 2016 ... As yet no response.

 

I need file defence by 4pm this Friday 26 August 2016.

 

Couple questions i need ask please.

(1) Particulars of Claim mentioned .. Formal Demand issued dated XX/07/2016

i received a standard letter titled Outstanding Balance does this constitute a Formal Demand?

I ask as want to reply in defence to this.

 

(2) What i received in relation to my CCA request is a joke what they are trying to pass off as a credit agreement.

 

I will upload and post these docs after editing so can be viewed .

. i post them docs in a multi pdf when get a chance.

ORIGINALLY they can't find anything and admit it, now all of a sudden this rubbish has surfaced:lol:

 

also i see a letter of assignment was dated to me following the actual date of assignment .. does this have any bearing?

 

Thanks

Has no bearing, it would have to follow the actual date of assignement, it would have been dodgy if the notice of assignment was before it was actually assigned

I have just found attached to the back of some statements another CCA they have sent .

. both CCA differ and both have no signatures,

no card reference whatsoever and just a load of generic charges

 

Both agreements have been manufactured as is obvious,

at top of both CCA's my name and address have been removed for upload purposes ..

both CCA's differ on appearance.

 

I will post 2 PDF to show the 2 CCA's, each PDF will relate to each CCA received.

 

PDF 1 will be 1st CCA and also include the letters i received that stated firstly could not find a CCA, then 2nd letter now have.

PDF 2 will be 2nd CCA.

 

Receiving 2 totally diff CCA's both set out differently .. both no signatures .. both no card reference .. surely very poor?

 

Any help/guidance on this very much appreciated

 

Thanks

Defence i plan to submit if looks ok, any help appreciated as always, many thanks.

 

Particulars of claim (for reference only)

 

1) An agreement between Bank of Scotland Credit Card and Defendant/s (D) subject to standard terms and conditions

2) Claimant © purchased the debt on XX/XX/2015

3) It was a term of the agreement that if any instalment was not paid on due date,

C would be entitled to repayment of outstanding balance of total amount payable, less (on payment)

any rebate to which D might be entitled

4) D failed to pay instalments due.

C issued a Default Notice requesting payment D failed to pay the sums due, which consequently became immediately due and payable,

Formal Demand issued dated XX/XX/2016

5) D has failed to pay the outstanding balance of £XXXX.XX

 

 

Defence

 

The defendant contends that the Particulars of Claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out his case below and relies upon CPR 16.5 (3) in relation to any allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

 

1. Paragraph 1 is accepted I have in the past had financial dealings with Bank Of Scotland however I requested clarity by way of a section 78 request, sent signed for XX/XX/2015 and shows as received XX/XX/2016. The claimant has yet to comply and therefore remains in default.

 

2. Paragraph 2 is vaguely remembered I do recall receiving something purporting to be a Notice of Assignment in accordance with S136 Law of Property Act 1925. Therefore I have sought clarity by way of a CPR 31.14 request sent signed for XX/XX/2016 and shows as received signed for XX/XX/2016. The claimant has yet to comply.

 

3. Paragraph 3 term of the agreement, I requested clarity by way of a section 78 request, sent signed for XX/XX/2015 and shows as received XX/XX/2016. The claimant has yet to comply and therefore remains in default, also clarity by way of a CPR 31.14 request sent signed for 16/06/2016 and shows as received signed for XX/XX/2016. The claimant has yet to comply.

 

4. Paragraph 4 A Formal letter was received with a quote of Outstanding Balance dated XX/XX/2016.

 

5. It is therefore at this time denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, and the Claimant is therefore put to strict proof to:

 

(a) show how the Defendant has entered into the agreement; and

(b) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and

© show evidence of any breach and service of a Default Notice and subsequent Notices of sums in arrears

(d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;

 

5. As per Civil Procedureicon Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

 

6.On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer crediticon Act 1974.

 

7.By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief

3. Paragraph 3 Notwithstanding the above, requests for information pursuant to the consumer credit Act (section 78) and CPR 31.14 were made.The (section 78) request was sent on XX/XX/ 2015, and shows as received XX/XX/2016 ..

Responding to your PM

 

I would stick with post#18 but there are serious errors contained with the claimants particulars which I would challenge.....

 

 

3) It was a term of the agreement that if any instalment was not paid on due date, C would be entitled to repayment of outstanding balance of total amount payable, less (on payment)

any rebate to which D might be entitled

 

Claimant is not entitled to anything as no agreement was ever entered into with them..the original creditor yes.

 

4) D failed to pay instalments due. C issued a Default Notice requesting payment D failed to pay the sums due, which consequently became immediately due and payable,

Formal Demand issued dated XX/XX/2016

 

Claimant didn't issue a default notice because they didn't own the debt or were legally able to ever issue a default notice

 

 

2) Claimant © purchased the debt on XX/XX/2015

 

Regards

 

Andy
