    • Absolutely. And not just on this subject  but if I remember correctly, it was a partial court transcript 
    • i would not be believing anything you read on the net without actually knowing the judgement CCJ number and looking up the actual judgement exists and that is what really happened and if thats true,.
    • the issue with trustonline is you have to know the address used on the actual claimform else you will never find it, you cant just search by name. thats where a credit file becomes useful, as if a ccj was registered somewhere in your name , then the address would automatically be added to your credit file under linked addresses. although the CCJ itself vanishes from showing under credit file public judgements section after 6yrs, paid or not, the linked address would remain. i really wouldn't fuss about this, unless you've comms where lowell directly state a ccj was awarded against you on (date). now if they've given a CCJ number as well anywhere thats even more useful, as you can get details from northants bulk directly on the phone. it could all just be someone else with the same name as you, but its unusual for them the write as well? was this before you sent the SB letter? cause if it was, then they got your current address from your credit file, so some evidence of the judgement must be there. go look on the 3 credit file providers sites. experian, equifax and i think credit kalma  dx  
    • thanks dx  much appreciated as always  sorry to keep asking stupid questions but would the register that i checked show the same information as credit files, as for  when we were sofa surfing was not registered anywhere for anything we were very ill and to be honest lost the will to live literally     
    • I did read a something about comma data. I believe it might have been pra group/ hsbc where comms data was challenged by the defence. A hsbc employee was bought in to give evidence …. And the judge accepted his version on the balance of probability….. which is why I was asking

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I don’t know if this will be of interest, hopefully for people in the same circumstances it will be.

The history of this is a little personal but I feel it needs to be said.

 

In 2005 I had a breakdown, I had a MBNA credit card with £7000 credit limit when I went on a spending spree and in the interim I applied and got another MBNA card with £6500 limit.

 

During the time of my illness I ran both cards up to the max and I was struggling to make the min payments as I also had several other cards at the time.

got these cards by simply applying for balance transfers they were throwing them at me.

Needless to say I defaulted on the two MBNA cards.

 

I wrote to them explaining my situation that I was now on medication and to offer a smaller amount of monthly repayments.

I made the lesser payments each month and each month they marked it as a late payment default and the balance continued to rise.

 

Eventually I stopped paying, a couple of letters and emails from them stating I was in default.

It then went to MBNA debt office, these people were quite aggressive in their emails demanding payment in full and threatening debt collectors.

 

I then wrote to them asking for the charges they kept adding to the account for late payments, I wasn’t late I just didn’t pay the minimum, I also blamed them for putting me in this position, they kept increasing the credit limit so I kept spending and in my condition I had no idea what I was doing.

 

Now on medication, I wrote a strong letter complaining they were the reason I was in debt and they should give me the discount on the advance charges as well as the extra interest cost, I had no reply.

 

Two months later I received a letter from MBNA saying they had written off my debt of over 13k and closed the account.

On checking my credit report it shows as closed balance 0

 

this came as a shock as I had a Tesco card with a large debt on who wouldn’t talk to me regarding my illness and instantly passed it to Frederickson’s.

 

I hope this might help others who suffer mental illness and not to let the credit card co bully them.

Thank you for writing -it cannot have been easy.

You must be pleased that MBNA have written off your outstanding amount which would have reduced the pressure on you no end.

And it is quite a surprise to me as MBNA are not usually so understanding-so well done them.

 

I don't expect Frederickson's will do the right thing and you are best to ignore them and block their calls though reducing the debt by 50% may not necessarily mean the original contract was unlawful in your case.

 

It may be Tesco's suggesting a large reduction because of your health problems.

It might be worth writing to Tesco again, pointing out your financial situation, what MBNA have done to help alleviate your stress and how Frederickson are really harassing you to make payments that sadly you can no longer make.

Then ask if they would kindly consider what MBNA did which would help enormously in helping your rehabilitation.

 

It might work or at least rein in Frederickson a bit.

 

Good luck with your recovery.

You don't give dates for when you started the card with Tesco, nor the last time you made a payment. Are they sending you annual statements of payments paid and the amount owed each year? I was looking back to see if any of your previous posts were about sending a CCA to Tesco but can find few of your earlier posts so I am wondering if you did try at some time.

I am sorry i have just seen an error on the original post it should say 2015 not 2005 that’s my mistake.

 

in 2013 i took out the cards and kept everything in order up to my breakdown, and until 2016 august payment was less than they required. This was mostly due to the balance transfer offer coming to an end.

 

I started corresponding with them around March 2017 this was after some time being on my medication. I had correspondence of them but i never had to my knowledge a statement of payments.

I can’t remember when it was passed to Fredrickson but I continued to write to Tesco up until Feb this year and still haven’t received a reply. i still have had no statements from them regarding my account

Under the Consumer Credit act of 2006 s86c and 86d was introduced.

 

From then on anyone in arrears had to be sent an annual statement outlining how much the current arrears stood at.

 

Failure to do means that until the creditor sends it they cannot charge interest on the amount nor can they enforce the debt [ie take you to Court.].

 

So do not write to them asking for a statement- just remember the situation.

 

As I am not sure when you went into arrears with Tesco perhaps a year has not yet elapsed.

 

PS Don't beat yourself up about the date [2005 2015]. If people were not supposed to make mistakes they wouldn't have put rubbers on the end of pencils.

LOL as my wife says I am hopeless.

I stopped the min payment on Aug 2016 I was paying an amount less than the min, this continued showing on the credit report as up to 5 months late before it went into default in feb 2016.

 

Since then as I said what happened in the previous post, I have not received any statement from Tesco, when on my Noddle credit report the account shows as open and a default every month, balance fig stays the same, and on clear score it says its closed.

 

But I have looked through the file the last correspondence from Tesco was in Jan 2017

Good. Not sure how long Frederickson's have owned your debt but if more than a year, they cannot take you to Court until they start including the annual statements.

Just in case you don't know they are part of the Lowell Group you've seen them off so this bunch should be easier.

I have been through all the letters sent to me from Tesco, and I can’t find an annual statement but, my monthly statements were on line so I assume the statements might be.

 

I cannot get access on line and haven’t been able too since they sent me the default letter, late 2016 then every month I had another default letter and an you are in arrears letter as well.

 

I then sent a letter disputing the amount of the debt in March 2017 because late fees were added. I explained in a letter my problems, but heard nothing from them for 4 months, when a letter from the complaints department upheld their position and the fees stood.

 

The rest of the time I heard nothing till the first call from Fredric, end of Jan this year. I wrote to Tesco to ask who they were, they said they were handing over to Fredric and I should contact them for anything to do with the account.

 

I have had many ,many calls and text from Frederickson’s some different numbers to catch you out and always a recorded message tell me to contact them.

 

The one letter I have from them offers a discount if I pay up and in the box they state Tesco as the client.

 

I block and ignore all calls and text now, I have too or I start going down the depression hole, the entrance is to close for comfort at the moment.

 

Can I just keep ignoring them?

What do you think the next step should be?

I know if I do fall down it will take some time before I will be in a position to handle it.

can you go get your credit file and see whos shown as the owner of this debt.

I have my suspicions its not been sold and freds are merely chasing for Tesco's.

 

and the fact theres a discount smacks Tesco know theres something wrong with the balance. [penalty fees? PPI?]
