    • Pandemic will just accelerate the change that was already happening.   High Street Retailers will go bust, as they cannot compete with online warehouse operators. Government will have to reduce the business rates significantly and landlords who own the shop buildings will need to reduce the rents they charge.   Retailers will need to make changes to the layout of their shops to make them more attractive, as a leisure experience. If they are offering just racks or shelfs of goods, consumers may think they are not getting anything extra than if they bought online.   As more people work from home, they will be available for home deliveries, so online retailers will gain the sales. The high streets where these homeworkers  use to work close to will lose sales.   Travel sector including airlines will see many go bust, more so, if there is a second wave of the virus.  Holidays based in peoples home countries or in neighbouring countries will be more popular. Caravans, motorhome sales are going to see massive increases, as people want their own clean spaces. And caravan parks will see more demand as a consequence, but will have to update facilities.   Pretty much every sector of the economy is going to see the biggest changes they have ever gone through and in a very short space of time.

    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble

After seeing my credit report recently there's a debt on there with a debt collection agency which was settled in 2013.

 

It shows as settled with the company that the debt was with on my credit report but it shows as a default with the debt collection agency.

 

I have contacted them by phone and I gave them proof and 14 days in writing to remove the default and they have still failed to do so.

 

What should I do?

 

Thank you.

It was a debt with Halifax, only around £100.

 

The debt collection agency is 1st Credit Ltd.

 

Thanks

Hi

If a default is placed correctly, this stays on your file for 6 years from the date of insertion. Even if you pay it off in full, the default remains but is marked as 'settled'

 

They won't remove a legitimately placed default, even moreso as they have no incentive to do so as you have paid it off

its on my credit report as being settled with Halifax but not with 1st Credit Ltd so they are in the wrong and it shouldn't be stating that on there as its affecting my credit rating when it has been settled.

Oh yes,missed the obvious! If Worst Credit had bought the debt, their name would show as the creditor. I think a screenshot of the credit file (suitably redacted) is needed to ascertain what is what

If the account was paid up and settled after the default was issued by Haliax, then i can see no reason why it was assigned to 1st crud as no debt exists.

 

Saying that if the debt was settled after the default was issued by Halifax, that default will still remain for six years, even though marked as settled

I can't remember now but it was probably paid after being transferred to 1sr Credit, I just presumed that as it has been settled with Halifax it would show on my credit report as being settled with 1sr Credit Ltd as well rather than it showing as a default? Because why is the Halifax one settler but the other one showing as a default?

doesn't matter if its paid off

a default was issued by the original creditor.

 

 

it stays regardless to whom owns the debt now.

 

 

shame you got fleeced of that money

wasted sadly

paying of a debt that has a default does not improve your rating.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

Ok, but why does it show as settled with Halifax on my credit report but not with the Debt Collection Agency? Surely it should also say settled?

afaik, when a matter gets sold on, the orig creditor account there on file gets shown as settled. the new owner then puts their name on it instead (but they cant extend any default date).

once paid, yes, the new owner shld mark it as settled. but, as has been said, if its still within the default period, then the default will stay until its 6yr end.


IMO

OK thank you for all of the replies and help.

 

I'm just trying to improve my credit score, I have got 3 defaults on my report, they are from 2011-2013, since then no problems and my score is going up slowly.

 

I'm not on the Electoral Roll but will be from next month, will this improve my credit score?

 

Sorry to go off topic.

 

Thanks.

My understanding of the credit file rules are that if a debt is sold to a DCA, they replace the name of the original creditor with their own, not create a new listing. It seems that there are two listings. One showing the original creditor which shows as settled and the DCA one. If so, the original creditor one should go as otherwise this will show that you have two defaults and not what it should be. One.

The DCA listing should be the one showing as settled.

This happens all the time and is the basis of my recent case against BC, exactly the same reason, CRA shows 2 defaults for the same account because BC never removed the data when it was sold to HPH2, who then reg another default

thats what i said in my post '...the orig creditor account there on file gets shown as settled. the new owner then puts their name on it instead'. ie there shld be one default (if applicable) in the end. and, if the amount has been settled, then it shld show as so!

you quite usually get 2 entries for the same debt when its sold on

it doesn't hurt the file any more only 1 default counts anyway

I can say for a fact this credit score busines pushed by the credit agencies is all bogus in reality.

 

I have no CCJ or Defaults now, on the electoral register and yet still have a poor score with the credit agencies. I have a vanquis and Capital one credit card with a combined avaliable credit of 5k. Furthermore, an ARGOS store card with a £500 limit and Creation finance with curries retail a revolving credit of 2.5k.

 

Even with a poor score i have no problems obtaing credit.

 

The secret is to never miss a repayment, keep to your avaliable credit balance with small purchases and never over-extend with that avaliable credit.

All potential creditors want to know is your previous repayment history and if you are a sutable risk.

 

Even if you have adverse markers get youself things like a mobile phone account etc and start building those positive repayment markers. Well this is in my case anyway
