    • Heres a thought. None of us can see how Johnson can deliver anything of what he promises - not that that would ever be a problem for him   Neither can we see how he can remain in power with his stated stance     But he perhaps could stay in power by jumping ship to Remain as it does seem that Remain is now  a majority both in Parliament (once led) and among the wider voters.     It sin't jumping ship for him - its just the latest incarnation of Johnsons one man lifeboat. .. and he will be aware that no one want Corbyn if they can avoid it. (Corbyn is clearly relying on Johnson to get power)   Can anyone else see a route for him?   Heck - he could even end up in history as the man who saved us 😕 .. and just upset a minority of hard core leavers who will always be upset whatever happens anyway ...
    • Good morning,   On the 21/12/2018, I brought back my rental car to the agency and I stop on the way to the rental car park to drop off a friend (less than 10 sec). Unfortunatly, it was a prohibided area with a double red line and I received the 23/05/2019 (6months later!!) a reminder saying that I didn't pay the fine in the first place, and now the parking charge is £160.   On the 05/07/2019, an other letter before court action, at this point I called them to ask more explanations. They sent me the pictures where we can see my registration and my friend getting out from my car.   On the 19/07/2019, I received the final statement before court action. On this letter that you can see attached, they mentioned a letter dated the 10/07/2019 that I never received. We can also see a discount? why?   I read this thread, https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/408248-vcs-pcn-liverpool-airport-no-stopping/#comments before posting   I'm not british and the car was renting by my company during my time in england (who push me now to pay because they don't want problems)   I don't really know what to do to be honest, should I continue to ignore them? Or in my case I should pay because they know that I was the driver at the exact moment   Thank you in advance for your help   Baal Liv airport fine.pdf
    • Future comms gone bust, so now what? O2 have the job of passing on affected customers to Chess ICT who seem to have some connection to FC (with not much better reviews online!). O2 seem to have confidence that they will solve the issues. I don't.  All I want is to cancel the contract but is there any hope? At all? Currently my court case against them is still ongoing and due to be heard in a local court very soon. I have to wait to be told the appointed time, then call to tell them the situation. Presumably it will just get cancelled. As my contract was with FC but service provided by O2, I shall be beholden to O2 to do as I am told? I am loathe to continue paying O2 this dd which includes the cashback I should have got/be getting. Yet I can't stop because I don't want my service cut.
    • Now your confusing me.....what as a Default Notice go to do with when you entered an agreement ?The Default Notice is when you breached the agreement.   Can you post a copy of your defence here for future reference and advice.   Andy
    • On that basis, there is no restriction at all between 10am and 10pm, which on a taxi/loading bay is highly unlikely.

I'm tryin to help the mother in law with her debts.

.today she received a letter from 'Mortimer Clarke Solicitors' advising they are working on behalf of 'Cabot' allthough i believe mortimer clarke are part of cabot?


They are saying if she doesn't contact them within 30days they have been instructed to apply to the court for a ccj,


The account was assigned to cabot in 12/2016 and started in 08/2013 its a catalogue debt.


They enclose a questionaire type form with do i owe the debt


,i agree i owe the debt,

i don't agree etc the form goes like that etc

and a expenditure form they want her to tick the relevant box and sign it which i said no...


.would it be right to contact them and ask for the signed contract if one exists.

.statements...notice of assigment etc....

would this then seeing as contact has been made the ccj threat put on hold for now?


She is on the basic benefit so got nothing

...the address is her friends house not her own address

...shes divorced but stays at her friends house and used that address but don't know how cabot have it..

..obviously she doen't want a ccj going there so what's the best way to procede.

right no one gets a CCJ until a load of other hoops have been gone through so start to learn about the processes or you will be of little help to MiL.


What they have sent is a letter threatening to take leagl action at some unspecified point in the future.

This letter is not a Letter Before Action because it doesnt use the correct wording and doesnt contain the right inforamtion about what is being claimed is owed and why.


That means even if they want to act after 30 days the most they can do is send out a proper LBA and that will have to give a minimum of 14 notice before they can file a claim


The claims process then takes at least a month and then if the claim is denied another 6 months on average to get to court and if she then loses the claim she will have another period to pay the monies due. If she then fails to pay within that time she will get a CCJ so the actual CCJ is miles away.


What to do?

Ignore their form as it has not place in the legal process.

Find out what the debt actually is and who owns it so that means sending Cabot a CCA request along with £1 statutory fee.


If they dont respond with the information within 12 days they cannot enforce the debt so cannot threaten court action.

The info also required would be a copy of the Notice of Assignment and also statements of account, which should be sent out once a year anyway but they have to provide them when requested in this manner.


these will be a bit vague because they wont have details like how much of the amount due is late payment fees, interest, random charges that these companies like to apply even though they are unlawful etc so she might have to ask the original creditor for the full info via a SAR, which costs £10

Update on the letter received..

now i have gone through it properly it says a 'letter of claim details' then runs through debt details etc what do i advise her to agree to or not and sign etc?


It does say 'date of assignment 19/12/16' but she has no notice not to say it wasn't sent she isn't the best with getting issues sorted out..

..what would be the best way to go from here offer £5 a month or dispute it?


They state if she doesn't contact them they may issue court proceedings so even disputing would or could stop it? any help apreciated.


The link above is the form she has been issued.
