    • I came back home on Monday and found this Claim form in my letter box. In the light of what I have explained earlier in regards to this debt claim, can anyone tell if I have any chance fighting it in th Court. SW in the last conversation request the proof of me living somewhere else, which I can't provide. They have info from the landlord of property being rented to me, I was there on electoral register, had bank account opened on this address, Driving licence had this address etc., but I wasn't living there.      Name of the Claimant -  Southern Water services   Date of issue – 12/06/2019     Particulars of Claim   The Claimant is statutory...etc The Claimant claims the sum £969 for unpaid water and or sewerage charges payable under s. 142-144 of the act and the Claimant Charges Scheme. The unpaid sum of £969 is for period 01/04/2014 - 08/07/2015. The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year  from 08/07/2015 to 11/06/2019 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of the judgment or earlier payment at daily rate of £0.21   What is the total value of the claim? £1423   Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) ? yes Letter before Action   Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred?  Yes, COA address.   Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? No Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account?    No, water charges   When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007 ? Allegedly after - April 2012   Do you recall how you entered into the agreement...On line /In branch/By post ? No   Is the debt showing on your credit reference files (Experian/ Equifax /Etc...) ? No, no anymore   Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Southern Water - original creditor   Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment?   Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? No.   Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? No   Why did you cease payments? Never. I wasn't aware of bills.   What was the date of your last payment? Never   Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? Yes, creditor did not take my notice of bills being wrongly issued in my name.   Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? No  
    • If the case was brought before a UK civil court would UK rules apply or foreign rules?   I wonder if the original contract would strate what jurisdiction it's terms would be decided by?   I note that UK contracts frequently have a clause that says in so many words that any disputes  will be interpreted under UK law.
    • http://www.hadefpartners.com/News/333/Limitation-periods-in-the-United-Arab-Emirates   One of the key limitation periods to be aware of is the limitation period for a claim for breach of contract. We have been approached by many clients (including in-house counsel at large multinational and local companies, and even international law firms) who believe that the limitation period for a breach of contract (including a commercial contract) in the UAE is 15 years. What they are often not aware of is that the limitation period for commercial contracts (as set out in Federal Law 18 of 1993 (the “Commercial Code”)) is usually 10 years. Therefore, multi-million dollar claims dating back over more than 10 years may now be time-barred.   https://www.jstor.org/stable/3381662?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

    • 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....

Payza Small Claims Court

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Bit of back story to my questions:

 

I'm a director of a webhosting company, and one of our payment processors we use is called Payza, which is similar to Paypal and very useful for people who live in countries not serviced by Paypal.

 

Around about the 21st of March, the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) has filed a lawsuit against digital payment processor Payza for allegedly operating an unlicensed money service business that processed more than $250 million in transactions.

 

Now looking at Payza's structure, they operate under several shady layers it seems. The company uses terms such as "servicing" companies, but all are ultimately falling under a UK Ltd company called MH Pillars Ltd.

 

MH Pillars Ltd has had a few address changes recently, but now the latest registered address for them is an accountant's office.

 

I tried to withdraw funds from our "ewallet" on the 21st of March, and a few small transactions went through, now I have nearly £5000 still stuck in my "ewallet" and the site is not allowing withdrawals. Each day the withdrawal requests remain "Pending" with a due date that just keeps on extending.

 

Their support team no longer respond to emails, and they are not active on their Social Media accounts on Twitter and Facebook anymore.

 

Anyone have suggestions please? What are the merits of sending a LBA to their accountants, and then a county court claim to their accountants as well? Would I just be wasting my money as accountants could just turn around and say nothing to do with us!

Looks like they're going under, so not much hope to get anything out of them.

However, move fast and you might get lucky if they have any asset.

Providing the MH Pillars are indeed responsible for your money (possibly not as they know how to use loopholes), you should use the address recorded on companies house to serve pre action letters and ultimately a court summon.

You need a lot of luck imo.

My thought is that they would deny having anything to do with your money.

Payza, upon a quick google search show its an untrustworthy company at best and [problem] artists at worst.

If you are going to bring an action, I wouldn't send an LBA. I would simply issue the claim and then put in for the default judgement immediately it is allowed. Then begin enforcement proceedings. Of course you realise that you may not get any of your fees back I think it may be the best chance to move up the list of creditors.

Just an update on this [problem] of a company.

 

I issued claim form against MH PILLARS LTD to their registered address.

Received claim form back from court with a letter from accountants at registered address saying MH PILLARS used their address for companies house without their permission.

 

The subsidiary company, DAMARAS LTD, also fraudulently registered at same address, has no directors, the last one Firoz Patel resigned just after the Americans put out an arrest warrant for him.

 

Suppose I have no options now but to swallow the fact I've probably lost £5000. I was thinking of emailing the email address given out by american DoJ inviting people who are victims of Payza to contact them. don't have any other address, as he is on the run in Canada anyway it looks like it.

Thanks dx.

 

a little update on this.

 

Court awarded me a CCJ against this company, and I've been chasing them for a year now. Registered address changed to a lawyers office in London.

 

I contacted this law office numerous times, and eventually one of the directors emailed me back and confirmed Payza was indeed their client and that they were not aware of any CCJ.

 

I sent him all the court papers as well as a copy from Trust Online about a month ago.

So far the lawyers have ignored me further.

 

Now I'm looking at a way to perhaps do a third party debt order against their bank account. I

I know they had money in the bank account.

The director had since been arrested in America after my CCJ against the company.

 

Am I correct in thinking I have to pay the fee and it gets added on to the CCJ amount?

 

I'm about 75% sure I know what banks they were using, but don't want to waste the money on fees to be told they don't use that bank.

 

Is there a way to get their lawyer to say which bank they use?

Hi

 

 Just had a wee look at this and I think if you have not already done so you need to inform the following and keep a good paper trail as you are doing:

 

1. Police/Action Fraud (get a Crime Ref Number).

2. Trading Standards.

3. FCA (as Damaras Ltd, Trading as Payza.com had there EMD Revoked by FCA on 12/07/2018)

3. Companies House (as they are looking at a Proprosal to Strike off MH PILLARS LTD

 

Companies House link - MH PILLARS LTD: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/06243643

 

Damaras Limited has simply changed its name to Peridea Limited but it is still the exact same company number 8029472 and Address

 

FCA - Damaras Limited: https://register.fca.org.uk/ShPo_firmdetailsPage?id=001b000000m4IXPAA2

 

Companies House link - PERIDEA LIMITED: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/08029472

(go to bottom of webpage and look at the previous company names)

 

PERIDEA LIMITED above I can find nothing in searching the FCA (so let the FCA know this is Damaras Limited as the FCA revoked there EMD) and if this new company is actually registered with them)
