    • I’ve been getting debit collection letters from a number of diffrent companies but I don’t recognise any of them. So I signed up to one of the credit rating agencies to find out who I owed money to. But that didn’t help. It just lists the debit collection company and the amounts they say I owe them. The amounts are staggering. now I was caught out once before by a debit collection agency saying I owed money but not who to and I just paid it. It wasn’t till after this that I found out that some agencies just send letters demanding payment for a nonexistent debit. On my credit report it says I owe money to the debit collection agent but there are no records of any original debit. no unpaid loans or credit cards.  so what do I do? I had a serious brain injury so I have memory problems and some untreatable mental illness. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
    • Hi, I’m sorry I haven’t replied sooner and that I wasn’t clearer. The situation is this.  I had a pay as you go sim and wanted to change to a VOXI pay monthly account. the guy on the phone said I’d need a new sim that would be a standard pay monthly sim. He told me that once I got the sim then I could call and have it put on a VOXI account. So. I agreed but at some point in the,long conversation after he ordered the new sim he said that infact I didn’t need a new sim and could just change my pay as you go sim into a VOXI sim. so he did that. I assumed that that was the end of the matter. I had done what I set out to do. And didn’t think about the ‘new’ sim because it was not needed. I assumed he had canceled it because it was not needed. then in January I get a letter saying I was behind on my phone bill. so I called them and that’s when I found out the ‘new’ sim had been ordered but never arrived .

    • Hi    Thank you for answering my questions.   As you have not contacted Goskippy about AX stating they were acting on there behalf you need to contact Goskippy urgently and ask them to verify that AX are acting on there behalf. (you need to know if what AX stated is correct)

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

in E&W a statute barred debt still exists

just that any judgement anyone might get in court cant be enforced

so they don't bother.

Hi

I have recived £400 out of 2.6k,

when i called Monument they told me that according to terms and conditions they are setting off the balance to the DCA.

 

I have read the thread by nutter192 and written a letter to them and yet to receive a response from them,

also asked for the written confirmation about the setting off the debt to Arrow Global.

 

Even though FOS says they cannot offset to a different company but Monument insists they can,

i am thinking of putting in a claim to get the balance, i shall be sending in LBA's soon.

 

Any advice on this matter is much appreciated.

Thanks

no harm in ringing the FOS now and asking their opinion.

 

 

they might help before you need to pop their FOS CQ into them

HI guys

I have recieved an email from the fos adjudicator and they have told me that Monument has not done anything wrong by offsetting my debt even though they it is not owned by them?

 

this is new for me as i have read in the forums they cannot do it but the fos agrees they can,

 

can anyone help as i have to prepare and fight for this one, the letter that i have received from fos the text is below

 

""your complaint about R. Raphael & Sons Plc (trading as Monument)

 

Thank you for waiting while I’ve been looking into your complaint.

 

I’ve now looked at all the information that you and Monument have given me.

 

Based on what I’ve seen, I don’t think that Monument has done anything wrong – so I’m not asking it to do anything else.

I’ve explained why below.

 

your complaint Monument paid you a refund for the Payment Break Plan (PBP) attached to your account.

 

The refund was applied against your debt, which is now owned by Arrow Global.

The surplus was paid to you by cheque.

 

You believe this falls out of this service’s guidelines, and that the whole refund should be paid directly to you to pay off “as required or as I see fit”.

 

You’re also unhappy that Monument has not followed this up in writing after discussing the matter over the phone with you, and that it has not provided confirmation of tax paid on the refund.

 

I can only consider the complaint about Monument.

my findings

The guidance that you are suggesting Monument is in breach of is an issue of Ombudsman News dated September/October 2004.

It does not concern refunds.

 

Your assertion that Monument’s final response letter dated 9 November 2016 “admitted the Payment Break Plan was mis sold” is incorrect.

 

Monument very clearly stated at the top of that letter that “Without admission of liability, and as a gesture of goodwill, we are prepared to adjust your account”.

 

So Monument’s offer was made as a gesture of goodwill.

That’s important.

 

It’s quite possible that this PBP was not mis-sold and that you should really not be due any refund.

 

Indeed, I’ve not seen any information suggesting that you were mis-sold the PBP.

 

So it is to your benefit that Monument has refunded you these amounts as a gesture of goodwill.

 

Do I think that Monument acted unreasonably in offsetting the debt? Not at all.

 

It’s worth noting that in accepting this offer you agreed to the terms of it – most specifically, that “Any adjustment is offered without admission of liability and as a gesture of goodwill.

No conditions can be placed on the offer by any other party.

Any monies still owed from the original debt will be offset by the adjustment”.

 

But even without this cause, I can’t agree that Monument has acted unfairly.

 

Firstly, it’s paid you a refund that as far as I can see there was no reason for it to pay.

 

Secondly, this has benefited you.

It has not only cleared your debt but resulted in a further payment direct to you.

 

Monument has not acted at all unreasonably in paying the refund this way and I will not be asking it to do anything else.

 

Monument’s position is set out very clearly in its final response letter and was further explained to you by telephone.

 

In that sense, I’m satisfied it has addressed your queries.

 

Concerning the tax paid on the refund, this is very clearly explained on Monument’s final response letter.

 

I’ve included the relevant sections below:

what happens next If you don’t want to take your complaint further, you don’t need to reply.

 

But if you don’t agree with what I’ve said, please let me know why by 25 August 2017.

 

I’ll look at any new information you give me and let you know what I think.

 

If we don’t hear from you by 25 August 2017, we might not be able to look at your complaint again.

 

So if you want to reply but you think you’ll need longer, please tell me as soon as possible.

 

In every case, both the business and their customer can ask an ombudsman to make a final decision.

 

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Yours sincerely""

then you now need to prove it was mis-sold, in otherwords they were wrong to levy it upon you.

 

 

look at the T&Cs of PBP and find where you are not entitled to it. you did not meet the requirements.

 

 

that way it will over turn the GOGW and then they must refund you directly.
