    • Hi Sorry but why am I getting email after email about this post sent to me ?   
    • if your loan is an unsecured loan, but you own a home were they to make you bankrupt, could you lose the home....... .............   i will assume you are talking about your wife's debts? as you've said YOU don't own a home ?  
    • Shops at the retail park beside me were mobbed today, last week the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh was as busy as it ever has been.
    • I have a loan with Commsave dx, the deductions come straight from my wages. When you join you tell them how much you want to save either weekly or monthly and you authorise them take deductions from your wages towards your savings account with them, same thing apply's when you have a loan with them.
    • I went from Virgin Media to Sky Q earlier this year as I wasn't a great fan of Tivo and was keen to try Sky Q.   When it was installed, I was offered the chance to replace my aging (ten year old) dish which I accepted.   In the last few days, I've come to the conclusion that Sky Q isn't for me and that I'd ideally like to downgrade it at the end of my contract to go back to using my old Sky+ HD box, which I still have.   Much to my surprise, I subsequently found out that the LNB on my dish would not be compatible as Q uses a special "wide band" LNB and the older boxes do not.   I contacted Sky to confirm this, which they did.   They also told me that there would be nothing they could do and that if I wanted to continue using my dish with my older box then I would have to pay to get it re-fitted myself which, after some investigation, would cost me at least £150 pounds.   The issue of future compatibility wasn't mentioned anywhere in the literature or the official Sky Q contract, but the Sky employee I was talking to agreed that it could present a problem and said that he would pass it "up the ladder" to see if the wording could be changed to better explain it to prevent any future problems - all the while telling me there was nothing they could do for me specifically.   I understand that I'm getting the service I paid for, which I have no issue with.   I understand that I'm only loaning the equipment and that it has to be returned at the end of the contract.   That I also have no problem with.   The contract also states that the dish becomes mine at the point of installation as well, which is also fine.   Basically, Sky have provided the service stated in the contract.   My problem with this is that Sky must clearly know that many people use, and still use, older boxes.   They still sell viewing cards for these older boxes, so that in itself should be enough to prove that they are aware of the compatibility issues between the two pieces of hardware.   Should there not have been even a small advisory akin to "Customers please note: Sky Q dishes are not compatible with older hardware" ?   By choosing to omit this information,  it not only prevented me from making an informed decision at installation, as I could have apparently asked for what's called a "Hybrid LNB" which would be compatible with older hardware, but it will also leave me significantly out of pocket at the end of the contract.   Is there anything in this ?.  Can I challenge this in any capacity ?.   Ideally, I'd like them to let me out of the Sky Q contract so I can downgrade to the Sky+ HD box I own, but I accept this will likely not be possible.   I'd be interested in your thoughts.   Thankyou.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi

 

I'm looking for a bit of advice regarding a debt collection agency that is hounding me at the moment...

 

I have a few very old debts,credit cards and Catalogue debt that will be statute barred come December but this debt collector is now planning to issue CCJ's on them...

 

There's a couple of these debts where i have grounds to dispute them as they are actually not my fault as the originally company just didn't attempt to take any payments off me for over 12 months and when they realised they demanded all the back payments all at once...

 

My question is are there guidelines on how long it should take a dca to go for CCJ's ??or can they effectively stretch the effects of them out on your credit file over 12 years by waiting the 6 years before issuing CCJ's which will then last for another 6 ???

 

Thanks

moved to DCA forum

not sure why you posted in the bailiffs forum

 

a DCA is NOT A BAILIFF

and have ZERO legal powers.

 

when did you last pay anything to these debts?

list them please

 

original Creditor

when taken out

what type of credit

last payment date

whom owns it now

credit file defaulted date


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s would collapse overnight.

Again sorry but i thought the question was pretty simple not vague....perhaps its the way i phrased it.

 

The last few debts that haven't got CCJ's against them are coming up to statute barred as i stopped paying my debts in December 2012..

 

All i was wondering is if they were to gain CCJ'S this close to the 6 years would they be able to chase me for another 6 years and would it still affect my credit file, not that it would bother me much?

 

There's nothing i can do about it i was only looking for the answer.

..i can't afford to pay them anything as my financial situation is about to get even worse because my wife is being made redundant in two months and we're barely managing now...

 

I know that there's a timescale for a default to be registered and thought they may be such guidelines about how long it should take for them to go for a CCJ ?

whos tells them its SB'd?

doesn't stop them getting a Backdoor CCJ if they don't know where you live

i'e you never told them or the original creditor in writing you have moved

 

everything will be filed to an old address , 1st thing you'll know about would be bailiffs at your door.

 

use the red toolbar search CAG box

 

backdoor CCJ

what I also meant to say is tell us about all these issues/debts you have

I bet there are some we can help with rather than being resolved to your fate, which you appear to be portraying...that theres nothing you can do about them

let us help you.

I'll tell them it's statute barred when it's time to do so....

 

i've been at the same address for 15 years i haven't moved,

they know exactly where i am as they were sending court bailiffs to my address most of last year,

they had to change them as after i spoke to one they never came back because there's no money to pay them...

.plus the burnt out cars on my street i think scared them off...

 

i got into way too much debt towards xmas 2012 and sent all my creditors letters asking for reduced payments and giving them my income and expenditure breakdown and to date i've still not received a response off a single one in fact one even raised my interest rate afterwards.

 

.. luckily i can go back on my online banking and the last payment made to any of them was December 2012...

so i know the last one will be statute barred at the end of this year..

 

They have got three CCJ's according to my credit file which is why they sent the court bailiffs last year..

 

I'm resigned to my fate as apart from two of my debts they are my fault i just couldn't service them all and those two if push comes to shove i will defend in court or at least point out why i don't owe them, thats if they'll actually transfer the cases to a local court this time unlike the last CCJ which i requested by moved but somehow was still rubber stamped in Northampton...

 

As i said i only really wanted to know if there were timescales about when they need to apply for the CCJ's or can they make them last almost 12 years by leaving it till last minute before doing so ??

Thanks

ok good that explain a few things.

at least you will get notification...probably a letter of claim...ideally if you do you shouldn't ignore that one:madgrin:

 

once the defaulted date on a debt reaches 6yrs, the whole account will vanish from your file

obv that doesn't equate to the owner not being able to still do court..

and as with the two CCJ you have, they'll show in the public record or judgement section for a further 6yrs, but the debt itself, again as you've probably noticed, does re appear on your file, just 'a CCJ relating to the debt.

 

once you hit the state barred date [6yrs from payment or last time you wrote and signed a letter]

you can send our statute barred letter

following that they should back off under the new conc FCA rules

No limit as such...they will try to refrain for as long as possible before it goes statute barred...so 6 years....then they can run up section 69 interest (8%) within any possible claim.

 

But some still issue claims that are statue barred.....because you would be surprised how many people dont even know what statute barred means.

 

Default Markers and CCJ Markers are not connected ...they can only show for 6 years.
