    • I'm on happy pills (anti depressants) but they aren't cutting the mustard anymore and I do need to see my GP soon to see if he can help in anyway. With regards to gambling it's so complicated; through my life I have made money (as well as having had some jobs)  being a "professional gambler" (gambling where the odds are in your favour - think card counting for example, fruit machines years ago for a long time.... Other things.) But I've also been totally compulsive at the same time. It;'s so entrenched in my psyche that it's hard to imagine just giving it up totally. I also have drug issues that have plagued me and it's a shame because I am fairly intelligent and could have been successful in life in theory but mainly due to those two things (and not really having any drive, ambition, whatever... I could go on and on but this isn't a therapy forum :P) I've not managed to. I'm 36 by the way. Cheers
    • Oh I just remembered I have a long defaulted account with Halifax balance approx £3700 I believe (from around 2015) but they aren't chasing me for it or anything. It was actually over £5000 but they refunded me a load of unfair charges (their words)  This does however push me over the £20,000 limit for a DRO I think?  
    • Hi.   I think you've made a good start by setting out in writing what you need to deal with. People should be along later to advise on how to deal with your creditors.   For the mental side of things, have you talked to your GP about getting some help with what's getting you down? Or support with the gambling issues?   HB
    • Hi people.   So I've managed to get myself into a sorry state financially. I'm insanely depressed which I guess is common for many. I don't think all of it comes down to the financial stuff but it is really crushing me now.   Facts: A lot of debt has been due to living on credit and gambling. I don't have a job. I know I should get one but I just totally despondant at the moment (due to many reasons). I don't expect any sympathy but I thought I would share this.   It's tempting to bury my head in the sand and wait for the inevitable calls from various collections departments but I want to be as proactive as possible. I think I've cancelled all direct debits so I don't get bouncing charges from the banks...   So onto the debts:   Loans livelend; £2400 was 4k 13% interest Bamboo £3000 (only just made the first payment this month) supid interest Likelyloans approx £3500 stupid interest  One payday loan for £200 I just got to cover some bills (knowing that I'd unlikely be able to pay it) - this is the only thing I haven't cancelled with the bank as they just take it from your card   Credit cards: Aqua approx. 3900 Capital one approx. 1200 Amazon approx £500 Paypal Credit Approx £1100 Overdrafts Santander £1500 Barclays £1k limit (I don't actually pay anything for this)   So all in all approximately £18,000     I also have a negative Paypal balance of £5000 but I don't believe this classes as a debt and I don't think they can do anything about this having read up on it quite a lot.   I guess my question is what is my best course of action. Should I look to do a DRO? Should I go bankrupt? (eurgh. Full disclosure I did this 15 years ago when I was 21. You think I would have learnt!) Should I write to each creditor and offer them £1 a month? Should I talk to one of the debt charities?   It is all my fault that I'm in this state but I also know that it's not the end of the world because they are all non priority debts. I probably am slightly behind on the council tax but not significantly.   I started claiming universal credit a couple of weeks ago and had my first appointment last week but managed to miss the next one due to not being able to sleep and then oversleeping and so I guess they've probably kicked me off that already and I might have to claim again.    So yeah. I take responsibility for what's happened but I don't see any way out. I've been very depressed lately due to this and other things. There is no one to "bail me out" and I probably don't need or want that anyway. Any advice appreciated          
    • Hi All,   I left the UAE 2 years ago. Have my bank clearance letter from HSBC.  I have been receiving emails from a company based in Hemel Hampstead IDRWW about money owed to the bank of RAK in the UAE which I’ve ignored as thought it was spam. I have now received a letter through the post saying the same thing (no idea how they have got my new address) that they are acting on behalf of RAK bank. I’ve never had an account with them but know how dodgy things are over there so would be nervous going back!.... Do I just ignore it or reply? It must be identity theft?  I am also nervous about travelling as I travel a lot & wouldn’t want to be arrested!!  I obviously have no intent on paying a debt that is not mine plus have no assets here anyway... Can they actually take me to court for something that isn’t mine??  Any info gratefully received.  Have spoken to citizens advice & they couldn’t help. Thankyou

Hi Guys,

 

Just checking something out and was looking for clarification.

 

On my Equifax report, it states that an overdraft I had with HBOS.

 

First late date payment was July 2011, then subsequent months late and then shows as defaulted in January 2012. I'm assuming as it shows, this means no payment since June 2011.

 

The debt appears to have then been sold to Arrow Global as they have listed the default on Equifax in January 2012.

 

I have never once communicated with Arrow Global on this. I obviously haven't made any payments to HBOS regarding this.

 

Today I received a letter from shoosmiths asking for payment or even a partial payment to clear the entire amount in full and final settlement. It looks like to me they are clutching at straws and this will become statute barred as of June 2017.

 

Can you confirm if I am correct?

 

Thanks

retitled and moved to hbos forum

not sure why you mentioned or used the DMP forum

 

arrows are a DCA and shoo's are their in house sols.

but the truth is

its all an automatic threat-o-gram generating pc system on the same printer.

 

if they are offering discounts

and if you are still living at the address that you took the account out at

then i'd ignore them

 

but never ignore a claimform.

Hi Guys,

 

Help needed with this one.

 

I have posted two items below,

one is a letter before action from shoosmiths for an old Halifax debt.

 

I think this is statute barred or due to be statute barred later this month or July 2017.

 

The reason I think this is because I have checked my credit file (pic posted below) for this debt and it defaulted July 2012, last payment was June 2012.

 

I have never had any contact with either shoosmiths, arrow global or Halifax regarding this since then.

Certainly not with arrow global or shoosmiths.

 

I contacted Halifax and they have no record of me on their files whatsoever that they could access to tell me any information.

 

I am unsure whether to send statute barred or CCA,

could someone kindly advise which would be best according to info below?

 

Thanks so much.

Hey dx,

 

Hope you're well and thanks for confirming.

 

I have moved since I took this out yes.

 

Do I not need to respond to Shoosmiths in any way?

or should I just ignore and send the SAR to HBOS?

 

Thanks.

I just realised, the last payment was June 201, not 2012. They have shown it as defaulted on January 2012.

 

June 2011* not 2012

then I would suggest that the balance is all unlawful penalty fees and the interest they have caused till account closure

 

its a threat yes but it does say will twice

now its now quite close to being statute barred

and is made of mainly penalties which is why HBOS wrote it off and sold it on I expect.

 

we could use the SB letter

and tag on the end about the charges.

Thanks dx.

Is that just a thought or a definite recommendation?

 

It's definitely way above what my overdraft limit would have been.

 

I'll send off the SAR to HBOS asap.

But how to deal with shoosmiths for sure?..

head the letter

I do not acknowledge any debt to you or any client you make represent.

 

 

if any outstanding balance is legally owed after the time expired so far and legally outstanding...

I will vigorously contest any issuance of a court claim stating:

 

 

The amount claimed is comprised of amongst others default penalties/charges levied on the account for alleged late, missed or over limit payments and the associated interest attributed to such.

 

 

A court will be aware that these charge types and the recoverability thereof have been judicially declared to be susceptible to assessments of fairness under the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 The Office of Fair Trading v Abbey National PLC and others (2009).

I will contend at trial that such charges are unfair in their entirety.

you've been here more than 6yrs and you've never discovered CAG is a SELF HELP FORUM too?

have you even bothered since then or indeed april bothered to LOOK at other threads to help yourself?

there are 1000+ threads here AND a sticky that TELLS you what to do when you receive a claimform

 

 

I also find it very disrespectful that you bump a thread in less than 1hour wanting help

we do have our own lives too.

 

 

claimform open scan removed

we don't need to see that..

 

 

please fill this out:

Hi dx.

 

 

I certainly have looked at other threads and posts and done research, but I'm not an expert which is why I'm also asking for advice on CAG. I know what o do with regards to a claim form, I was asking for help in terms of defence.

 

 

With regards to the "disrespectful" part of your post, I couldn't find this thread anywhere in the DCA forum which is where it was. So when I posted the claim form, I was confused as to why the thread did not bump to the top of the DCA forum, as that is where it appeared last. I then posted that 2nd post "bump" as you call it, to see if it would show up again, and it did not.

 

 

Honeybee has just informed me that you moved it to the Financial Legal Forum. I was not trying to urge someone to attend to my needs quicker or be disrespectful, but I can see how it may come across.

 

 

If you don't want to help me, it's not a problem. To be perfectly honest, you've always been quite rude and make lots of assumptions. I appreciate each has their own lives, and nobody is more important than anyone else, so why you choose to take such views is beyond me. It costs nothing to be polite.

 

 

If you want to help me, thank you, I really do appreciate it. If not, I guess I will have to figure it out for myself.

 

 

Thanks for your help so far, it REALLY is appreciated.
