    • Hi, In response to Andy's request earlier, the client for Restons on the last letter I had from them states Beneficial Finance.  If I recall i have not had anything from them ever!  I can't look back through any other correspondence I have had regarding this debt until the weekend so I might be able to see if anyone else has had their hands on this.  I will add I did a credit reference last week and none of my 'elderly' debts are showing at all, in fact I have a rating in the 900's!!! My concern is my HSBC overdraft, I can't have this reduced or removed.  It's on a joint account with my husband.
    • as you have read some of the threads perhaps you have come across the term "grace period". This allows you a minimum of 10 minutes to park up, read the signs put money in the meter etc plus if you are stuck queueing to ge put after parking then that time doesnt count as the contract is for parking, not waiting. Now dont be in a hurry in wanting to appeal, Star parking is run my a couple of people whose name doesnt appear on the list of directors at Companies House and are well known to us and judges ocross the land. Can you post up scans of the letters you ahve received and tell us the exact dates and times of the events and the exact dates you got the NTK's (charge notices)? If the place is local to yiu then pictures of the netrance to the land from the public highway and any signs at the entrance plus any different signs in the car park itself will be telling. these people do have a habit os suing motorists, adding extraordinary imaginary additional charges and then dropping the claim whn you dont wet yourself and pay up. again this is known by the courts system so you can end up having a chat with a judge in chambers about what they think of it all as you work out your expenses for their no show. However, we dont want it to go that far normally so the above info will help us help you knock this on the head.
    • Ok. Thanks for your help. You have been great!

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Hi am trying to help some elderly friends with their debt problems

 

they have a Amex account and they have been paying £1 a month for quite a few years

 

They want to try and offer a full and final settlement but it would be very low - do AMEX do full & final?

 

Have said that first they should get CCA which they have now done

- have attached (hopefully) the priority application form for the blue card and original conditions

- both are difficult to read

- quite faint

 

The application form refers to PPI terms and conditions shown in enclosed leaflet plus balance transfer details on reverse of leaflet

but no leaflet provided only one page of conditions which does not as far as I can see mention PPI or balance transfers

 

AMEX have also sent terms and conditions applicable at point of cancellation

but as I have never had much success at doing attachments just thought I would do 2 pages and see how it goes

 

Any help would be great Thanks

am (2 files merged).pdf

Hello sorry I think a bit of confusion on my part

 

A statement showing current balance was provided with CCA but otherwise they have not been getting statements - thought they are meant to be sent evey year/six months

Is this right and if so is it of any benefit to my friends that they have not been getting them?

 

Should Amex also have provided the 'enclosed leaflet' with the PPI t&c with the CCA

 

They have also been sent t&c at point of account cancellation which I will try and put on tomorrow

 

Any help thanks

If they've not been sending statements they can't levy charges and interest

When was this taken out?

Is it is still owned/paid to APEX

When did they start reduced payments?

Hi taken out in 2001

Still owned by amex - payments are being made to NCO who are acting for A Express

Reduced payments in 2006

Have had a rough calculation and it does not look as thought any interest/charges added since 2006

 

They are thinking of offering 25% f&f - any problems with enforceability might be helpful Thanks for any help

Stop paying NCO

They are a powerless DCA

P'haps get an sar and CCA running yes

 

Then review

Yes thanks

 

Can I ask a question which I realise I am not sure about

 

When is a debt statue barred

- does it date 6 years back to the last payment of the debt or the last written correspondence re the debt

I thought it was tied in to last payment

- but recently read somewhere that it can also date from last signed correspondence

 

Thanks for any help

Sorry I think I am confusing things

 

The Amex debt belongs to friends of mine and yes NCO are acting on AMex's behalf

 

 

They are quite elderly and I think have more or less decided now to just carry on paying the small monthly amounts to their various creditors - they were hoping to try and do f&f from a small inheritance but they have now realised that they would not be any better off and might still have some of the debts

 

Thanks for your advice esp re statute barred - I always just saw the last payment date as being the thing to be aware of Many Thanks!

if it was sold to a DCA then the fact that letters were sent to the OC typically don't come into play as the debt buyer wont ever know they existed as they get no paperwork at all

other than a line in a spreadsheet.

 

 

its not worthy really trying to F&F an original creditor

the only light is get all the statements on accounts owned by the OC

that they still pay

and look for PPI and penalty charges

they CAN dramatically reduce what an oc wants for settling.

 

 

one of my neighbours settled a £17k debt to LLoyds for less than £3k because of bank charges

even my wildest calculations could only make those £8k
