    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble
    • Late to this, sorry - my wife claims contributory ESA and got her P60 about two weeks ago. Now I know she's overpaid on her tax and I'm just waiting for HMRC (the department I currently work for) to figure it out. They owe her about £150.

Sorry if this is long winded, will try to get all info here on 1st attempt

 

5 x creditors total outstanding approx. 46K

 

Barclays loan with Cabot – debt purchased by Cabot

 

Barclays overdraft with Barclays Recovery – debt still with Barclays

 

Store card with Cabot – this one is clear, see below

 

Mint card with Westcot – not sure if bought or just being collected

 

Barclaycard with Mercers – not sure if bought or just being collected

 

Store card with Lowell – not sure if bought or just being collected

 

All were in default but now expired (2016) on credit report, which is going in right direction.

 

Entered DMP with Financial Atlantic (FA) approx. 2008,

paying £150 pm across all creditors,

have been model client and paying regular.

 

During this year’s DMP review,

it was clear that FA would not entertain any CCA requests and would only negotiate F&F at rate of 40%, plus there 10% charge on savings made.

 

After checking forums, I decided to go for CCA requests myself,

letters sent 1 week ago,

Cabot already replied for the store card debt and will no longer pursue the debt as cannot obtain CCA, £3.3K gone.

 

I asked FA to hold all payments to creditors pending CCA replies,

they have now advised my DMP account will be cancelled and to continue discussions myself with creditors,

I guess they saw what I was doing and wanted no part of it.

FA will write to creditors advising plan is cancelled.

 

My option,

as I see it,

is await for CCA results,

 

if no CCA, debt unenforceable, ignore,

if CCA, then maybe go for F&F starting at very low figure,

 

I am guessing for bought debt,

I have paid more than the purchase price already,

others were only on token payment,

duration left for each as per my DMP between 8 and 15 years,

 

one (Barclays loan has 38 years at current payment)

I understand these debts cannot be put back onto credit file as once defaulted that’s it, am I correct here?

 

Has anyone done similar, what was result and how should I play this now.

Good thing Financial Atlantic cancelled as they were no doubt taking a percentage of everything you paid.

 

Continue as you are. CCA requests for any credit account. And Bank account get hold of statements to look into excess charges.

 

Any PPI reclaims ?

 

Once the defaults come off after 6 years they can't be added back on.

 

With the stopped payments, they should start writing to you. Best to start a new thread about each debt, once you start getting replies. Too confusing to deal with all debts on one thread.


We could do with some help from you.

Just received text from Cabot (they must have had number from very old contact), it reads

 

thank you for your payments to Cabot, your next payment is due in 2 days.call us on XXXX if you need anything.

 

very nice people, lol, but they will not be getting any communications until I get my CCA or written communications in response to my CCA request

 

am wondering if this is a panic message or just because my DMP is cancelled ??
