    • Thank you. Can you tell us who replaced the rear brakes in June 2019? Who paid for it? One slight problem here is that the amount of money you are dealing with is in excess of £10,000. £10,000 is the County Court small claims limit. When you bring a small claim – less than £10,000 – then even if you lose, you won't have to pay the costs of the other party. Over £10,000 and you will have to pay if you lose. On the basis of what you say here, you have absolutely no chance of losing but on the other hand the fact that you would have to bring the claim on the fast track brings comfort to the other side and they are more likely to employ tactics to intimidate you with the spectre of costs hanging over you in the event that you lose. This is something to take into consideration. You have two choices. One would be to consider claiming for the refund of the entire price plus any ancillary losses. The second would be to claim for repairs. On the basis that repairs will be considerably less than £10,000 I think that I would suggest you go for that. This means that you need to get the car thoroughly examined and get a quote for repairs and generally speaking putting into a proper roadworthy condition. In fact you would need two independent quotations. You would then, with our help, enter the pre-action protocol which would essentially threaten the dealer and also the finance company with 14 days to sort it out or else you will bring a court action and without any further notice. You would only make this threat if you decided to go ahead with it. It's not worth bluffing. Both the dealer and the finance company will probably use all sorts of tactics to delay and to prevaricate. You must not allow yourself to get dragged into any kind of protracted discussion. You make the threat. 14 days. Day 15 – you send them the good news. Once they have the court papers they will then start to realise that you are serious. The finance company will put pressure on the dealer and someone or other will put their hands up. It's up to you if you want to get involved in this kind of action. If not then I think you're going to have a hard slog
    • Ok trying to move this forward. just got a statement with £260 agents fees added even though they have no collected the car! Am I right in thinking this is illegal?   Moving forward is it best for me to submit an N244 with the court to try and stop them taking the car and for these unlawful fees? Could somebody advise what it is I’m asking the court to do as I don’t want extra time to pay as the account is up to date but I don’t want them taking the vehicle because I’m refusing to pay these agents fees!   could really do with some help  
    • The dealer is MK autos ltd in Milton Keynes.   We know the car was serviced by bmw once, as we called to ask but about 2 years ago.  The car was brought for £10,995 but with finance cost total will be £22,000.. Eye watering amount but again we was pushed into a corner. I needed a car my mum has terminal lung cancer and I do all the hospital appointments. We thought that we would be safe for a while at least.   Again I forgot to mention that although the car had a "service" the rear brakes went and were replaced on the 15th June 2019..   We have paid so far in total £2260 in 6 months.   I am prepared to fight this!!

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?

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?
