Claiming Cahoot credit card charges from 2003/2003 contractual interest

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a similar thread on Barclays.

 

I have some old credit card charges on my Cahoot card from 2002/2003. I have the statements!!! :whoo:

 

I have plugged the charges into the compound interest calculator and the total comes to:

 

Charges: £275

Compound interest (24.99%): £7842

 

Total: £8117

 

Do Santander/Cahoot settle eventually or are they courtroom bruisers?

Update. I've written my preliminary letter asking for the charges and 24.9% interest in restitution. I also included a schedule of the charges and interest.

 

Will no doubt get a standard "Thank-you for your complaint we will get back to you in 8 weeks" letter from them.

 

Letter as follows:

 

__________________

 

 

PRELIMINARY LETTER: REQUEST FOR REFUND OF CHARGES AND RESTITUTION

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

CARD/ACCOUNT NUMBER: XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX

 

I now understand that the regime of fees which you have been applying to my account in relation to late fees and over limit charges are unlawful at Common Law, Statute and recent Consumer regulations.

 

I would draw your attention the implied term of the contract that you would conduct yourselves lawfully and in a manner which complies with UK law.

 

I calculate that between 2002 and 2003 you have taken £275 in charges. I also claim £7,764.34 in interest in restitution as per Sempra Metals vs HMRC, calculated at an APR of 24.9%, making a total of £8,039.34

 

I enclose a Schedule of Charges listing the amounts that I require to be repaid.

 

In addition to full payment of the sum mentioned above, I require that you remove the default entry from the register. Please note that mere correction or amendment to the entry will not be acceptable.

 

In recent years Courts have been happy to accept claims for bank charges that exceed 6 years, whilst having regards to the precedent set between KLEINWORT BENSON -v- LINCOLN CITY COUNCIL under section 32 © of the Limitations act 1980.

 

Should county court action be needed I will be seeking to rely on this.

 

Therefore this letter requests a refund of all charges indicated including interest in restitution from the date of this letter.

 

I request that payment is made directly to me by cheque and that any refund in whole or part should not be allocated to any set off or third parties.

 

Should the latter occur my claim will be deemed as unsettled and I will proceed to the Courts for recovery.

 

You now have 14 days to respond positively. I trust this clarifies my position.

 

 

 

Yours faithfully,

tnook

Well it's been 3 weeks and no reply from Cahoot/Santander. Time to draft the LBA and give them a final 14 days.

Called Cahoot, they claim there is no record of getting my letter. They say their address moved from Coventry to Belfast, however their mail does get forwarded.

 

It's a little non-sense because I also wrote to them with a GDPR request at that address and got a reply. Anyhow. I have now sent my LBA to their Belfast address and given them a final 14 days before I start court action.

Just had a call from Santander, left a voicemail saying they want to discuss my recent correspondence with them. Fast they are not.

 

Anyway I’ve already sent the LBA. Will see what they have to say.

Spoke the the gentleman at Customer Services. He’s claiming they only got my letter a couple weeks ago. Was questioning why I put down 24.9% since they never applied that rate to me. I told him its the likely rate they would have made money on my funds based on other loans and cards they offer, He said he would call back in a couple days with Santanders position. I won’t hold my breath.

 

I need to start preparing for court now. Can anyone assist? I’ll start to draft the POC.

Ok got the final response from Santander/Cahoot. They are not playing ball as wexpcected. Say it is time barred and there is no company error so they will not do anything.

 

Ready to proceed to court. Any help much appreciated.

    • 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.
