Lowells claimform - old littlewoods CAT debt

Recommended Posts

Hi,

It’s currently 4:30am and haven’t been able to sleep tonight worrying about this situation I find myself in so apologies in advance for bad spelling/not making sense.

 

I opened a littlewoods account around 2/3 years ago now when I’d lost everything and was immature and stupid I ended up maxing out the account to a total of £600...100s of letters/ phone calls of being ignored I’ve finally been hit with a county court claim.

Came on the 4th but had the date of 1/06/18 on it.

I briefly read through it and started to panic on how real this could be getting.

 

I haven’t filled anything in I was just going to ignore it and just let things plan out as I did do with quickquid years ago which just gave up but reading more into the forums here and the words county court are starting to seem more serious. I have no job and has been like that for 6 months now,

No money at all and living with my mum.

 

We’re set to move in a few months so If I just ignored what will happen?

I’ve not once been in contact with them like most have on here it’s just been a straight case of me ignoring it whilst giving myself a slap everytime a letter came through the door asking myself why was I so stupid back then.

 

if someone could help with advice I would really appreciate it,

Also my credit rating is so bad and I really don’t expect to be looking for any credit related items in the next 5-8 years so would an CCJ really affect me?

 

Lowell’s now ask for a sum of £860 odd in total

 

Thanks and sorry for any ignorance in this message

dont ignore, it wont go away.

What paperwork do you have associated with this claim as they dont come out of the blue so do you still ave old statements, the default notie, notice of assignment of the debt to Lowells, their letter before action?

 

The chances are that you owe much less than this and defending the claim will not only mean that you dont pay Lowells a unicorn food tax on top of the debt but get an order instructing you how much to pay and when from the court and that will stop Lowells hounding you should you follow that plan.

 

The court may order you to pay as little as £5 per year until your circumstances change.

 

tell us all about the whens and what paperwork you have

How do I fill that form out

I don’t have Microsoft word to put my own writing ( Anserws ) in.

 

And you say it’s stuck with me for six years, stuck to my credit rating?

If so I really couldn’t care less about my credit rating it’s that bad from mistakes at a younger age.

Or do you mean they will keep the pressure up and there will other more serious consequences?

Thanks

 

Never mind I’ve actually used my eyes to work out now sorry, filling it out now

    • 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.
