    • Well rac just responded    Ironically they're saying they bear no liability as the - and this is their words   "the catastrophic engine damage had already occurred before the first patrol arrived"    I've emailed back to say simply that we are unable to accept this explanation as the patrol did not raise any concerns in regards to engine damage and that if the engine had been "catastrophically damaged" that they still bear liability for advising to continue towing on it which caused the actual failure    Gave them 14 days to reconsider before opening small claims...

    • Thanks. I understand now. Sorry for being thick. Last question….. what do you mean by lucky or unlucky about having a UK asset?  Do you mean lucky that there is someone who can forward me any mail? What’s the unlucky part?  Thanks 
    • correct a DCA has zero legal powers. you don't need any 'legal powers' to issue a court claim..you or i can do that if we think someone owes us money, thats what the courts a are therefor, so a DCA thus has no more or less legal powers that you or i.   people end up getting backdoor CCJ's because they do not update their debt owners of their correct and current address. you are abroad, you are also lucky (or unlucky in terms of a uk asset) someone lives in the only? UK address they could use.... you say you'd get the mail or notification anyway...so...

    • 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!

Hi There

 

I have recently recieved a letter from PRA group regarding an old payday loan i took out with lending stream back in March 2010,

 

which it says is the date of loan agreement on the letter.

 

Am i right in saying this debt is now statute barred?

 

Do i contact PRA group at all or do i just ignore the letter?

 

Thanks in advance

Possibly - It all depends if no payment has been made etc on this debt within the last 6 years (5 if Scotland)

What do you know of this. We need more info to go with this one.

 

We could do with some help from you.

No payment has ever been made on the account.

 

I have looked over old emails and last correspondance with lending stream was in january 2012 asking for repayment and myself saying i couldnt afford to re pay the balance.

 

The letter from PRA group says there is balance of roughly over 1000 pounds and there is another letter attached saying they would accept 300 pound as full payment which is strange.

 

Thanks

  • 5 months later...

Been looking at my credit file and trying to clean it up as buried my head for years over old debts.

 

I had a loan from lending stream early 2010 and they are claiming i owe over £1000 just noticed its still on my credit file coming up as PRA group.

 

Also had a letter from PRA group few months back offering massive discount on the above which i have ignored.

 

i have had no correspondance with either lending stream or PRA ever over this loan as buried my head

 

I was wondering with it being well over 6 years should this still be on my credit file?

 

I thought that it was 6 years from the default notice which is no more than 3-6 months after the loan agreement which i have a copy of.

 

If i am thinking right how do i go about getting this removed from my credit file?

 

I have my dates wrong it wasnt early 2010 in was late 2010 but still over the 6 years.

 

On my clearscore account it says PRA account opened 5th sept 2010 and also says last updated 5th jan 2016

Looking through my emails i have received no notice of default from lending stream or through the post.

 

I have read somewhere that the notice of default can only be 3-6 months from the loan agreement is this correct?

 

If so it should be off my credit file..and how do i go about removing this from my credit file?

that used to be the case

but the ICO changed their guideline in 2013/4

why do you need it off your file?

Should i ask lending stream to send me the date of the notice of default as surely its the oringinal creditor who issues this? And would they not just point me in the direction of PRA and say the debt is sold?

 

One thing i am confused and worried about is if i contact a creditor and acknowledge a debt does this reset the SB date? Or is it as you have mentioned only if i make a payment?

cant reset anything.

OC placed the default

OC should rectify their error

 

give them 14 days to correct the default date which should have been registered 3-6mts of last or failed payment

those were the rules issued by the information commissioner office that were inforce at the time.

 

should they fail to correct the defaulted date

you will without further notice start a complaint to the ICO

and will be seeking financial compensation
