Recommended Posts

Hi all new to the site,

 

I have started being hounded by robson way for a debt thats over 12 years old, the constant calling me and now had a home visit to which the rep was told it was statute barred and told to leave to which he asked me to call his office and tell them this... obviously i didnt nor will i admit to this old debt. What can i do about them ?

 

I am located in scotland if that makes a difference to certain laws.

 

Thanks.

send them our Scottish sb letter from the debt collection section of our library.

 

as long as you took the debt out whilst resided in Scotland

else use the other SB letter if this was taken out whilst resident in E&W

also tell them that their doorstepper promised they would pay you £100 for the inconvenience for the harassment and you have this recorded on your phone. Ask them when you may expect the payment and if you dont get it you will be sending someone round to collect it

I cant seem to find that letter, i have blocked all there numbers they call me on yet they are still able to leave me voicemails which i find rather odd.

my comment has as much legitimacy as theirs and probably will get more credence if put to a judge.

Do use it if you want to wind them up as you can keep recycling it by asking for a copy of all of the data they hold on you at some point if they dont stop their stupidity as it should be included. Tell a lie twice and it starts to become true, ask any politician

Just to say you have a legal right to tell them that you ONLY want to be contacted by mail (old fashioned post). If you tell them this they must stop phoning you. If they do ring you again tell them you will report them to ICO for harassment.

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
       
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
