    • why do you keep changing/missing bits out from the example we posted above ?   lets get you sorted....   i do not want to see it..but..is there a 16digit number in their particulars of claim (from where you got the red bit from)
    • Thanks, no of course I understand this, the call was to check whether they filed set aside but my understanding is they cannot as clearly no grounds.   If they had then the enforcement process is delayed isn't it.   By attendance I just meant expediting the procedure to seal the CC order for N293A, given the operational speeds at my local CC...  
    • Defence   1. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had a contractual relationship with Vodafone however I do not recall the exact details or recall any outstanding balance and have requested that the claimant verify the exact details of this claim by way of a CPR 31.14 request. The claimant has yet to comply.   2. Paragraph 2 is also noted  but denied. The amount claimed could not possibly consist of simple monthly usage.   3. Paragraph 3 is noted .It is questionable why the claimant has waited 5 years to litigate on an assigned debt and then tries to claim section 69 interest from the date of assignment but then limits itself to just one year.   Therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to: (a) show how the Defendant has entered into an Agreement/Contract (b) show and disclose evidence of the nature of breach and quantify any debt outstanding (c) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for (d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim   4. On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act.   5.  As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   6. Notwithstanding the above should the alleged amount claimed include an early termination charge(s) amounting to the entire balance of the remaining contract, OFCOM guidance states that any Early Termination Charge that is made up of the entire balance of the remaining contract is unlikely to be fair as it fails to take into account the fact that the provider no longer has to provide and pay for their service. An Unfair Term and Condition governed by the Unfair terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations (UTCCR).   7. By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.  
    • Hello, what do think of this? i have taken most of it on the above mentioned posts, i need to submit today really because I don't think I will gain access to a computer tomorrow    1) An agreement between HSBC and Defendant/s (D) subject to standard terms and conditions 2) Claimant (C) purchased the debt 13/10/2016 3) it was a term of the agreement that is any instalment was not paid on due date, C would be entitled to repayment of outstanding balance of total amount payable less (on Payment) any rebate that D maybe entitled 4) D Failed to pay instalments due. C issued a Default Notice requesting payment D failed to pay sums due, which consequently became immediately due and payable, Formal demand issued dated 10/08/2020 5) D has failed to pay outstanding balance of £4277.61   ************************* FINAL Defence *********************************************       1. The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature.      2. I have in the past had financial dealings with HSBC . I am unaware of what alleged debt(s) the claimant refers to having failed to adequately particularise its claim, and have therefore sought clarity from the claimant by way of a Section 78 request and a CPR 31.14 request.   In response the claimant has disclosed they do not have an agreement between HSBC and Myself   And in response to my section 78 request for the HSBC agreement - was not supplied   3. Paragraph 2 is noted but it is denied that I was ever served Notice of Assignment at the time of the Assignment.   4. Paragraph 4 is denied. I am unaware of any service of a Default Notice (s) pursuant to section 87 of the consumer credit   6.Paragraph 5 is noted but I refer you to my point 2 that i am unaware of the alleged debt they are referring to   7.It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:   (a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement with the Claimant; and (b) show and evidence the nature of any breach and Default Notice; © show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and (d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   8. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   10. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.     11. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.      
    • pers i think you are going to have a very hard time proving you were not aware of the 14days limit so it's extended by another 12mts.   has the dealer stated he will refund you the money on the car if you return it?

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

your circumstances are vastly different as the law in Scotland is very different.

So far all you have got is hot air delivered by RM but tell us all about the event and we can tailor a suitable response should one be needed

you are in Scotland...IGNORE!!

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

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

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

HI,

 

I have just received a letter from Pollock Fairbridge Schiavone Solicitors with a heading - "DO NOT IGNORE - DEMAND BEFORE COURT ACTION". Reply within 7 days of letter dated 3rd October, I received it on the 8th.

 

This apparently relates to a parking charge on 9th May 2015 in Edinburgh, and associated reminder letters. PCN was £100, and with a debt recovery fee of £60 , totalling £160 due.

 

Although the car was mine at the time, I did not leave it there for the alleged time and I cannot remember which of the 4 people on my car insurance at that time, who was driving it.

 

Letter from the Solicitors has a very threatening tone, and to be honest I am not sure whether I am being scammed or whether these monies are actually due to them.

 

The original ticket - and any letters that were received relating to it - I do not have.

 

Help please. Before I head to a solicitors and incur even more costs.

 

Thank you.

Ok short response.

 

" I was not the driver at the time, tell your client, Simple Simon, to go and bother the person who was."

 

 

as for you playing grandmothers footsteps by saying it could have been w,x,y or z as they are insured, I am insured to drive your car and people without insurance such as police officers and soldiers under orders can do so as well. You dont need to say anything, there is no keeper liability so it is for them to show who was driving at the time, not for you to give them clues.

 

 

 

And for their imaginary costs, they arent going to win a court claim so no costs apply

Thank you for your help here.

I am really worried about this.

I did receive a PCN and a further request for payment but was advised that this was not actionable in Scotland

- ie I didn't have to pay, and I did not leave my car there.

It was definitely there apparently but not by me.

 

I have no idea where the original paperwork is as I probably binned it after a year.

I suppose, being an avid TV watcher, that I am concerned I will get a bad credit score (after 5 decades of having a good one) and that the case will be taken to court and judged without my knowledge. M

unless they get a decree, which they cant, nothing can show on your credit file.

and you will never need a solicitor no matter what happens

 

IMHO you've ignored to date.

you are in Scotland POFA etc does NOT apply so they cant just take you to court assuming you were the driver even if they could.

 

and

as there is no such thing as trespass in Scotland so again that's the only other reason they could do court...so it aint going nowhere.

if you could possibly scan up this letter you got to PDF please so we can see it [read upload] we can better advise.

 

as long as they have your correct address, i'e you've not moved since the event and you car is registered to your present address and not an old one then their is nothing they can do without you knowing about it.

 

so...absolutely nothing to be worried about....you continue to ignore

so what? there is no POFA in Scotland so they cant win that argument.

Send what I have written and stop fretting about stuff you see on the telly that has no bearing on your case.

 

The more strident you are the less likey they are to want to start a fight they cnat win. They use the threat fo court to coerce you into paying money you dont and cant owe but that abuse of process wont stop because it works 85% of the time. Be part of the righteous minority.

BTW Simon Renshaw-Smith is the owner of VCS, Excel, Mr Clampit and other companies. He has in the past told judges they dont knwo their job and then wonders why he loses his speciosu claims. Using a soliciotr to write a threatogram is designed to make you think there must be some gravitas to this. Nope, soliciotrs just rub their hands and count the money without giving a s*** about the morality ior rights of the claim.
