    • Hello all,    I have received a letter from Advantis in regards to an overpayment of carers allowance I received when I got a job whilst I was caring for my mother. I did not know I had to inform them etc.    Long story short, I had a compliance phonecall with carers and nothing more was said.    I stopped caring for my mum shortly after and cancelled my carers allowance too.    I was employed for 4 months at the beginning of 2018.    Apparently the DWP and carers have sent letters but I haven't responded so they've gone through Advantis to recover the amount owed. I moved house shortly after cancelling everything and had no contact from them at all.    They sent letters to my previous address so they told me that's why it's been passed onto Advantis.    Today DWP told me that the only thing they can do is take payment in full, or deal with Advantis to come up with a payment plan.    I spoke to Advantis who asked me to pay in full or in two installments, I refused and they then said they've put my account on hold for 30 days whilst I go away and work out my monthly income etc so they can go through an affordability assessment to work out how much I can pay back and how often.      What shall I do? DWP tell me there's nothing they can do as it's been passed onto Advantis.    Advantis tell me they are working on behalf of the DWP... Nobody will tell me who owns the debt.     What shall I do?    Thank you all in advance for your amazing help.     
    • Hi, I have just received a pcn from Euro Car Parks saying that my car was in one of their car parks for 13 mins without making a payment. The reason being is that my husband was waiting for me, but where he thought I would only be 5 mins I was longer because of health issues and I had to take a rest. As if this wasn't enough, unbelievably I have just received ANOTHER notice saying I had not paid for a ticket on the 9th of September. I would like to mention the car park charges are so cheap, at £1:20 all day, it would be insane not to pay. We have used this car park only around 4 times and have always paid, excepting th time the car was waiting for 13mins. What a shock I have got receiving these notices. I wonder if I accidentally keyed in my registration incorrectly? Please can someone advise.
    • I also have a similar problem with Advantis for DWP overpayment of carers allowance. I've only just moved into my own house and they've sent a letter asking for my whereabouts and a business matter that needs my urgent attention. I have found out from the DWP and carers that I owe £1,131 and Advantis want me to go through an affordability assessment.    I am not sure who owns the debt, DWP or Advantis and where I stand with this 
    • I've just had this emailed from CarMoney. I'm so confused, I really don't know what I'm supposed to be doing and with whom. "Apologies for the delay in response. I have spoken to Oodle regarding the complaint and unfortunatly, they would require an independent report to be carried out on the vehicle. The burden of proof would lie with yourself.   I can certainly help by giving you the details of Scotia, who is the company that we use."   Everything I've read says that I did the right thing by exercising my rights under the CRA 2015 with the dealer. That was done within the six-months, so the burden of proof should be on the dealer still? Or am I completely wrong??
    • Heard nothing for 6 & half years until last week. A big fat letter from Barclays upholding my PPI claim which had gone to the Ombudsman (news to me) and enclosing all the waffle and finally at the end a cheque for £3659.20 and advising that £454.85 was taxed - this I can reclaim as I don't pay tax currently.

Santander overdraft debt sold to Cabot

Recommended Posts

Just received a letter from Santander stating my overdraft has been sold to Cabot

 

The letter states that Notice of Assignment will be forthcoming from Cabot

 

In the same envelope was a welcome letter from Cabot stating the usual things about 'how my experience Cabot will be different' blah, blah, blah.

 

The account was setup in 2005 and the overdraft is approx £5400

 

The last payments to the account I am aware off would have been Jan/Feb 2013

 

Not sure what the process is regarding overdrafts and what documentation is required etc to prove in court, so if it's a different ball game compared to a typical credit card or catalog debt then I would really appreciate the heads up regarding what to expect now.

Balance is just over £5400

 

The account was opened April 2006 and the overdraft was made available when I opened the account, I think the OD limit was £5000 to match the bank account I was leaving (can't really remember it was defo greater than £2000)

 

The last money credited to the account I know off was early 2013 (around Jan/Feb)

 

In terms of fees etc, the balance that I remember the overdraft was around when I stopped using it and the final balance that has been sold on it's probably around the £500 - £750 mark.

Hi

 

Will do the SAR, not had any letters directly yet form Cabot but they have phoned me on my mobile and sent a text.

 

God know's how they got my number, as nobody has it and I don't give it out.

 

Can somebody though give me some advice on the likelihood that the OD debt is enforceable?

 

the balance would have been settled but I can't risk Cabot then defaulting against me or getting a CCJ.

 

In some respects I always though I would have to pay this one eventually as I was under the impression OD's are different to typical credit card/catalogue debts,

might try to go down a settlement route if I can get a discount.

 

Most of our bad debt is SB next July/August and those who have tried to issue a claim have so far failed as all agreements are pre 2007 and we know they never have the paper work to back them up.

 

By spring 2019 all bad credit references will be off my profile so I can then look to start buying a house (which gives us time to start saving a small deposit).

Any text messages they send you simply forward them to 7726 (spam on your phones keypad)

 

As for applying for a mortgage, you'll need more than a clean CRF, it'll need to have been clean for at least 12 months prior, if not more.

Hi.

 

I have an alleged debt for an overdraft that was sold off to Cabot a few years back, the debt according to my account statements (I did a SAR) was SB in at the beginning of this year and the default drops off at the end of this year.

 

Did all the usual things like ignoring the fishing letters and the odd call.

However today I got a unexpected call from a landline and answered it thinking it was somebody else, it was Cabot want to speak blah, blah, blah.

 

I asked what it was in connection with (knowing what it was actually about) and ended up telling them even if they could prove the ALLEGED debt was mine it would be SB anyway. I was told they had a payment in 2014 showing so it was not SB.

 

I know this was false, as I have a full statement showing the last credit was on the account and the account was closed 2013.

So stated it was SB again and if they thought that they had a legitimate claim against me then ultimately then need to prove it and take me to court.

 

I've double checked the SAR again (every page and its a big pile going back over a decade) and all looked fine until I came across a few screen dumps/shots from a computer system (so not the typical statements you would see) but print off's from a dumb terminal system showing a single payment of nearly £400's that I have no knowledge of mid 2014.

 

It just shows a credit of £XXX.

I've also found a two internal email/system print offs showing a recall request from a bank was received and a refund cheque was issued just a few months later (which was cashed).

 

The balance they are chasing, is for the sum after the refund back to the bank was issued (so the original sum)

 

Where do I stand as in summary?

 

  • Overdraft was taken out back in 2006
  • SB was early 2013 - So well over 6 years ago
  • Account Closed later 2013 (when default was issued) - Just a few months and it drops off
  • Some unknown random payment was paid in mid 2014, outstanding balance was reduced and then that payment was refunded a few months later. The outstanding balance was increased back to the original sum, which is the sum Cabot are chasing.
  • All my proper account type statements only show data until late 2013 when the account was closed, the only record of this payment and refund comes from screen dumps and print outs from internal systems mid 2014.

so I would assume that your last payment or use was many months before this

so there is argument there that the OC took xxx mts to default you?

Last payment on the account was mid March 2013, so yes about 9 months till they defaulted and closed the account. 

 

For a good 4 months before that, the account was in serious arrears with just little sums of money going in sporadically but they kept on racking up the OD charges each month which far out weighed any credits anyway.
