Default after 5yrs of AR markers - 2 shop direct accounts

Recommended Posts

Hi

Firstly thanks for reading and all replies are gratefully received.

 

I have been on two special arrangements with my catalogue Very and littlewoods for 5 years.

Today they tell me that I pay everything off in full or they will issue a statuary default notice.

 

The special arrangement has already had an impact on my credit file so surely they then can’t do it again for another 6 years.

I asked them 5 years ago to do the default notice!

They have also told me today that I shouldn’t of had the arrangement for that long anyway.

 

Is there anything I can do to avoid the default being placed today.

I want to downsize my house but if they give me two defaults it will a further 6 years when realistically it should only be 1.

 

Thanks

oh god they never go away can harm you for upto 12yrs.

 

the quickest way to get it defaulted and thus removed in 6yrs is to stop paying now.

the defaults should have been issue after the third missed / short payment

i have an update on this. I went to the financial ombudsman and they agreed shop direct should of applied a default 5 1/2 years ago. This was in October. The issue I have know is getting shop direct to update my file. FO are in contact but just wondered if anyone has any advice. I have the actions in writing from both FO and shop direct.

 

thanks in advance

You tell them to change your file, or you tell the FSA/FO to tell them, or you sue to make them.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

give them 14 days else you'll start a serious complaint with the ICO and seek financial compo...esp if you've been turned down for credit or had to take out more expensive credit or been refused a mortgage, if their NON default was causing you harm by itself only on your credit file.

 

its for the creditor to update your file, nowt to do with CRF providers

If you report the incorrect entries to the credit reference agencies, they will contact the creditors to confirm your information and then correct it when verified.

 

Very VERY rarely happens as the creditor will simply say " the entry is correct".

How do you know that it very rarely happens, do you have access to statistics on the number of failed requests, and if so, how many of those requests have confirmation from the FOS that its incorrect?

 

You can't just assume it rarely happens because that's what you think.

I've been in contact with FOS and he has been telling them since early November to change it.

I have rung them also.

 

The woman told me do what you want we have already been fined so go ahead back to FOS.

The guy at the FOS wasn't impressed.

I just want it sorting

I'm looking to move and they just put my account from query to arrears.

Had I have know they would of taken so long I wouldn't of accepted their token gesture of £50 and I have expressed this to the FOS who said I should accept!

 

I think the 14 days letter by recorded delivery and a conversation with the ICO may be the way to go.

 

Thanks for everyones input.

I will also contact Experian with my letters from both shop direct and FOS stating what should happen.

I guess if I take it from every direction one might work!

 

Thanks again.

let the ICO sort it.

they will

the credit ref people will only refer you to them and the FOS and back to the OC's anyway.

 

ICO is always the way to go with Credit file issues.

Because its shop direct and they ALWAYS do this. I suggest you stop posting as you are giving out bad advice relating to creditors like this.

    • 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....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
