    • Can't remember the original creditor now but it will have been a CC. Last payment to OC would have been a long time ago, as I recall, I think it was almost SB when they took it to CC - around 12 mths left ish. Thx, I'll wait to hear from the court then.
    • for lowells then.  i could instruct my dog to sit, if it does is a totally different matter.. whats the debt and when did you take it out? and when did you last pay it? you know the game from the info we asked you in your current claimform thread. bottom line  ignore them. nothing they can do. thats just a std threat-o-gram sent automatically by email which is a freeway to try and scare you. the debt is >£600 so in all truth they could even use HCEO's but eitherway and even for a charging order, they STILL have to return to court to ASK the court to allow bailiff use or apply for a charging order, and if any of those were to be attempted, the court would write telling you giving you the opportunity to object.  might be the best option as when its back in court you could then demand they show you the signed credit agreement   ps you wont its nothing to do with them now. the claim was adjudged. dx
    • The payment plan was made officially through the court who accepted it. It has always been maintained apart from as explained.
    • Sorry was typing on the hop.  The contact number that Shiply provided me for AirSpeeder when they also took my items ( I have my own thread about it on here ) is showing on Whatsapp as being a company called Agench Ltd.  I have found other contact numbers for that person under the Agench Ltd company name so have sent them messages also x
    • so Lowell is the current debt owner? Was the payment plan made through the courts or informally with them?

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi

 

Have received a pre-legal assessment letter from Lowell Financial Ltd apparently for Argos Card Services.

 

It does not use the usual 'may' or 'could' comments and reads as follows:

 

Having assessed our options we intend to take legal action to recover this debt if you do not contact us to agree a repayment plan.

 

This debt does not appear on the credit file - not sure what to do in this situation. Any advice would be gratefully received.

 

Thanks

Suggest that you send them a CCA request letter with the required £1 fee by postal order. Send by recorded delivery or at least get proif of posting from post office. The letter is in the link above. This should stop them issuing any court claim when the request is outstanding.

 

In the meantime, you should find out from Argos card services when the last payment was missed.

We could do with some help from you.

Thank you for your reply.

 

There are no specific details of the Argos account so I am unclear how to contact them.

 

The Argos card was held many years ago but cannot remember when and have no details of it any more. Am worried about contacting them and maybe stirring things up because of this.

 

Does the fact that this does not appear on the credit file mean its statute barred?

the debt is nothing to do with argos now

they've sold the dent to a debt buyer

safe to ring them.

 

 

there is no direct link between statute barred and if/if not a file shows on credit files.

 

 

they are not linked

No, you can ask for information.

 

Acknowledgement is admitting the debt in writing or making payment.

So a CCA letter to Lowell on its own is not sufficient?

 

Is the relevant date I need from Argos the date of last paymeant or the default date (if there is one) as have no real idea about this account to be honest.

People do tend to live in fear with debts, so they would rather not contact anyone they owed money to. Human nature !

 

But if you don't find out, then you are in the dark. If you just sent Argos a subject access request you could be wating over a month to get the information back.

 

The info you need from Argos is when you last paid them and when you missed a payment. Whoever handles admin for Argos is more likely to have accurate info than Lowell.

 

If your anxiety is too much, just send the CCA request to Lowell.

Hi Uncle Bulgaria

 

I appreciate I sound like a scared twit, sorry.

 

Generally I'm a strong advocate for facing your fears but clearly I am also a hypocrite.

 

It's just that I thought we had got past all the debt problems and this has just appeared out of the blue.

if you've not heard or done anything with this debt in years I wouldn't bother with a CCa request yet if at all

if its statute barred

then in matters not what paperwork the powerless dca hold...:lol::lol:

 

it still SB'd..

 

go ring argos card services and ask date of late payment/use

 

don't forget the botoom line here

 

a DCA is NOT A BAILIFF

they have no more powers that you or I

 

all we can do is raise a claim if someone owes us money

that's all they can do too..

Hi

 

I have now sent a CCA request to Lowell but since my last post I have read that Argos have been known to arrange for debts with Lowells to be transferred back to Card Services so they can recoup the debt themselves.

 

Because of this I am concerned about sending an SAR letter to Argos and raising their attention. I did mention this in one of my previous posts but I am even more concerned now having read that they have a practice of buying the debts back from Lowell if it suits them.

 

Do I need to contact Argos or should I wait for Lowell to respond to the CCA request?

 

Thanks

that's why I said p'haps its not a good idea to CCA Lowells.

but ring argoes and ask last payment date.

 

 

if its SB'd its SB'd, nothing can unbar it

and if its not, a phone call is not admittance

 

 

theres always logic in why I say do certain things...

Hi

 

Thanks for your response. It is not my intention to disregard your comments, for which I am grateful. However the letter from Lowell was phrased differently from others I have seen from them over the years. Comments such as ''may' and 'could' were not being made and Lowell were stating they 'intend' to take legal action.

 

My concern was that in not responding to them by the deadline on the letter (22 Feb) then they would start legal proceedings and that would be a more complicated position to be in and defend - hence my CCA to them as Uncle Bulgaria suggested initially.

 

It is the matter of contacting Argos themselves that is worrying me as they have not made any contact for many years and I am reluctant to raise their interest now. If Lowell respond with any documentation that gives support to their claim couldn't I then SAR Argos at that point, when I am more aware if Lowell even have the rights to pursue this debt?

 

Thanks again

so..i intend to take my dog for a walk tomorrow

if I do is a totally different matter

 

 

sorry but you appear to be a bit green about understand certain things by the looks of it.

 

 

stuff their deadline,

they are not bailiffs and can do nothing more than you or i could do

that's raise a court claim.

 

 

they have no special powers nowt zilch ...

 

 

argos have sold the debt

go ring 'em

 

 

an sar takes 40 days

a court claim is 33

Yes, you are quite correct. I am indeed "a bit green about understanding certain things", That is why I am politely asking questions and seeking advice on this forum.
