    • I came back home on Monday and found this Claim form in my letter box. In the light of what I have explained earlier in regards to this debt claim, can anyone tell if I have any chance fighting it in th Court. SW in the last conversation request the proof of me living somewhere else, which I can't provide. They have info from the landlord of property being rented to me, I was there on electoral register, had bank account opened on this address, Driving licence had this address etc., but I wasn't living there.      Name of the Claimant -  Southern Water services   Date of issue – 12/06/2019     Particulars of Claim   The Claimant is statutory...etc The Claimant claims the sum £969 for unpaid water and or sewerage charges payable under s. 142-144 of the act and the Claimant Charges Scheme. The unpaid sum of £969 is for period 01/04/2014 - 08/07/2015. The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year  from 08/07/2015 to 11/06/2019 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of the judgment or earlier payment at daily rate of £0.21   What is the total value of the claim? £1423   Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) ? yes Letter before Action   Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred?  Yes, COA address.   Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? No Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account?    No, water charges   When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007 ? Allegedly after - April 2012   Do you recall how you entered into the agreement...On line /In branch/By post ? No   Is the debt showing on your credit reference files (Experian/ Equifax /Etc...) ? No, no anymore   Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Southern Water - original creditor   Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment?   Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? No.   Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? No   Why did you cease payments? Never. I wasn't aware of bills.   What was the date of your last payment? Never   Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? Yes, creditor did not take my notice of bills being wrongly issued in my name.   Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? No  
    • If the case was brought before a UK civil court would UK rules apply or foreign rules?   I wonder if the original contract would strate what jurisdiction it's terms would be decided by?   I note that UK contracts frequently have a clause that says in so many words that any disputes  will be interpreted under UK law.
    • http://www.hadefpartners.com/News/333/Limitation-periods-in-the-United-Arab-Emirates   One of the key limitation periods to be aware of is the limitation period for a claim for breach of contract. We have been approached by many clients (including in-house counsel at large multinational and local companies, and even international law firms) who believe that the limitation period for a breach of contract (including a commercial contract) in the UAE is 15 years. What they are often not aware of is that the limitation period for commercial contracts (as set out in Federal Law 18 of 1993 (the “Commercial Code”)) is usually 10 years. Therefore, multi-million dollar claims dating back over more than 10 years may now be time-barred.   https://www.jstor.org/stable/3381662?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

    • 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....

PRA Group BOS Credit Card debt - Letter Tennis

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

I have been in an ongoing tennis game with letters going back and fourth with regards to an old debt i had with the bank of scotland (Credit Card)

 

I have sent the usual CCA request to the PRA Group and have received the following

 

A signed credit agreement

A notification of assignment - (showing PRA Group as holders of the debt from July 2014)

A statement of account up to March 2011

 

However the statement of account is where I have the issue, they only provided me with a credit card statement up to March 2011, the total they are chasing is lower than the one issued on the statement.

 

I know this should the case as I was using a debt management company (Compass) to handle the account, and they issued payment of £6.49 a month, Compass ironically went under in April 2014, taking my debt savings and no more payments were made to PRA Group.

 

My point is PRA group have only produced a official statement up to 2011, and only provided a spreadsheet on business paper showing payment of £6.49 made a month. There is no official statement showing these payments were made by Compass and especially nothing to indicate compass was acting on my behalf.

 

I am assuming that if PRA group cannot prove the £6.49 payments are made on my behalf, the debt can be classed as Statute Barred as officially my last payment to Bank of scotland would of been in 2011

 

I have attached the last letter from PRA which includes a sample of the statement they provided (which anyone could knock up on excel). Am I ok to challenge this statement and ask for proof of who paid the £6.49 and confirm documents stating on who's behalf the payments were made?

 

Any help on this is appreciated

 

Thanks

Never enter into letter tennis with a DCA.

 

Also in response to your CCA request, is that PDF all that you recieved from them? If so, then its not compliant.

 

When was your card taken out?


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Hi

 

thanks for replying

 

No this wasnt the only response, I received a reply to the CCA which included the signed agreement, notice of assignment and the account statement (but only up to 2011)

 

the credit card was taken out in 2004

 

this reply was received after i denied any liability and request a full statement to include transactions from 2011 to 2014, which is where they have only provided this excel spreadsheet showing a payment of £6.49 a month up to 2014

Hi thanks for moving to the correct forum

 

No i was never a resident in Scotland

 

I have attached the 1st reply to my CCA where i received, notice of assignment and statement, the signed agreement i received a week before (i originally asked for that over a year previous)

 

page 1 = 1st response letter i received

 

page 2 = 2nd letter i received after I queried the lack of information on the original statement.

 

I had already received a copy of the original signed agreement about a week before the 1st response letter

 

hope this makes sense

sorry - getting tired LOL

 

I have left out the copy of the statement as it is basically a excel spreadsheet saying a payment of 6.49, nothing official, my kids could make it up

 

the CCA request i sent is the standard template used (sorry dont have a copy available at the moment"on my work laptop", but it is the same as the form on this site)

 

1st and 2nd response letter from PRA attached

Hi

 

my original CCA request was to the PRA group back in 2017, they returned a letter to this request which only included the correct signed CCA with Terms and conditions just 3weeks ago.

 

As i have managed to squash a few agreements in the past I unnderstand they have provided me with the right CCA document however did not provide the correct documents for notice of assignment and statement.

 

unfortunately this original letter is at my work place and I cannot retreive it for a week as i am off with the kids for half term.

 

From what i can see they have provided the right documents and a statement, but only up to 2011, but nothing that points to me making payments since 2011.

 

The angle i wanted to follow was the fact they need to prove i have made payments after to 2011 to 2014, if they cant then i can go for statute barred??

 

hopefully this makes sense

 

thansk again for your support

Dagbloyblue. WHat he means is can you post that response you got, so we can check to see if it is fully compliant. Many DCA's comply 90% but omitting that final 10% is a fatal mistake for them. It's what trips many people up, as they see the vast majority is compliant and think the entire response is.

 

it's better to be 100% sure right?


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

yes sure 100%, I have noticed a few of the Dca' s my original debt management company "compass" had deals set up with did not require any payments legally.

 

I appreciate the help in reviewing this mine field

 

I will post the letter up as I get back to work possibly Thursday

 

thanks

Hi

 

I have managed to load up the earlier letters from PRA

 

merged PRA Letter Files 25102018.pdf

 

Letter 1 dated 10/09/2018 - was when i received the signed agreement , which i responded to using the CCA format requesting Notice of assignment and full statement

 

Letter 2 dated 12/09/2018 - was a letter before claim, received a day after letter 1 - I never responded to this as i had already responded to letter 1

 

Letter 3 dated 10/10/2018 - was a response to my CCA template letter and provided the notice of assignment and statement up to 2011

 

Letter 4 dated 16/10/2018 - was a response to a request on further statement information from 2011 to 2014 where they just provided an excel spreadsheet, stating monthly payments of £6.49 "nothing indicating where payment was from"

 

Hope this is making sense

 

thanks

compass were obv paying HBOS not PRA as it wasn't sold till 2014.

IMHO I agree with you, they if they were paying the OC then the statement should come from HBOS or atleast be on HBOS letterhead

a statement produced by the fleecers for payments not directly made to them, when they didn't own it at that time is certainly questionable

 

as for the CCA return, IMHO that is enforceable.

thanks for reviewing, so do you think it's worth asking for the original HBOS statement showing payments from 2011 to 2014 and clarification of who made the payments and on who's behalf?

I certainly wouldn't believe anything a DCA sends you when at the time of those payments, they did not OWN the debt.

as for if those payments were authorised, well obv they were as compass were paying upon your written instructions..cant get out of that

 

why not SAR HBOS? its free!!

Ok I will send a SAR request to HBOS, do I need to inform PRA of this action as it may take longer than the 30 days they have given me to respond?

 

I agree the CCA is enforceable, just thought if PRA cannot prove the payment's are made on my behalf it could be statute barred?
