    • Hi,   I've been summoned into court next month for getting caught using my younger sisters oyster card. But they also analysed her card and saw that ive used it 149 times other than that. I'm only being chargerd with the one offence and am having to pay fines and i can chose to plead guilty or not guilty.    HOWEVER the letter states "The schedule gives paticulars of 149 offences, which we suspect you of commiting but have not been charged with. If you pead guilty in person an are found guilty of any offences with which you have been charged you can, before any sentence is passed, admit all or any of the matters in the attatched schedule and ask the court to take them into considerations. This in turn will result in not being subsequenly charged with any of these matters"   I have heard that you can write a letter to try to settle out of court but who do i send the letter to as there is no contact on the summons letter?

    • I purchased a Macbook pro from very.co.uk but after 2 weeks is stopped working completely, I talked to very.co.uk electrical support and they agreed it couldn't be fixed and asked me to return the item. I returned the item and very.co.uk refunded my cc.   However I then received a letter stating that I needed to remove the MacBook from my apple account so that the machine could be accessed by very.   I ignored this at first as I thought it was a mistake as they had refunded me. However then I received a bill from them, they had added the cost of the Macbook to my account credit account on very!   I removed the Macbook from my apple account as requested and messaged them via my account to tell them.   They have now asked for a screenshot of me removing the Macbook from my Apple account, how can I provide a screenshot of an action, one that I've already performed too?   I sent a screenshot of my current devices that are registered to my account, however I can see this running as I purchased a replacement Macbook from another store and it has the same name as the returned one, I am concerned as I have an outstanding balance on my account and am being asked for payment.   There appears to be no method of talking to anyone useful at very.co.uk or of getting anything resolved very easily, they do not appear to have a complaints phone number and only provide a couple of options for complaint subjects online 'Warranty complaint', 'PPI complaint', pr Insurance', I would have thought they were obliged to provide better access than that for customers?   Has anyone had experience of dealing with very.co.uk? what's the best way I can get this resolved?    Can they recharge me for a product that I have returned, and that is faulty?   What can I do if they refuse to accept the screenshot I supplied as proof that I have removed the machine from my Apple account?

    • 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.
