    • And in Wales Second home owners and Tourists can drive 50 miles through locked down counties while locals are confined to barracks.  Gething in Wales is as useless as hancock in England.  Of couse they  can't ban travel through Anglesey and up the A55 to England or the Port of Holyhead a vital ferry link with Ireland would have to close as trucks couldn't move.    They are not sure if someone in Conwy with a hospital appointment in Wrexham would be allowed to travel to it as if its non urgent might fall foul of the reasonable excuse clause.   https://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/can-visitors-travel-through-lockdown-19020391

    • 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 .

Hi guys/gals

its been awhile since I posted and needed any help so bare with me.

 

Lowell have bought an old Vanquis debt, I have had loads of letters and ignored them,

I haven't had any contact with them on the phone either so I've not acknowledged any thing.

 

On Saturday received court papers,

 

I have registered with money claim AOS as I want to defend.

I was told about a 3 letter process to send to Lowells solicitor but don't know what the letters are.

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hi sorry for very very late reply.

 

I have filed my defence, had the directions questionnaire.

I had the court changed and now have a date for my local court.

 

I've found this very hard and tried to do this on my own as I know your all very busy helping everyone. 

 

Lowells have until 4pm on the 20th May to pay the court.

The hearing is at 10am on the 17th June.

 

Attached to the small claims track is a letter about witness statements and own evidence,

I'm now totally confused and I would like some help if possible.

 

Thank you.

The letter you refer to is a Notice of Allocation which contains the court directions on how to prepare for the hearing date. So you must now prepare a witness statement in support of your defence along with any exhibits (your disclosures) and file and serve with the court and claimant by the date stated.

 

There are plenty of examples of witness statements in the Legal Success Forum..attached  to this forum.....find one similar to your claim/debt type and have a go at drafting it in your own words.

 

Post here for opinions and suggestions before filing with the court.

Andyorch, thanks for the reply. I will have a look when I'm home from hospital.

 

Is it to late in the day to offer a payment ?

 

 I'm really struggling at home at the minute, health issues, very poorly dog and family problems I honestly don't know if I have the strength to continue.

 

Then I think of all the hard work already done with this claim. 😢😢😢

Difficult to advise as you have not provided any information on the court claim or the debt as requested in post #2 11th Dec 2018 ?

 

Age of the debt the value of the debt the nature of the dispute all come into play when trying to negotiate a settlement.

Hi

Sorry to hear about your illness, there are plenty of people here who will help, just fill out he questionnaire as best you can.

In particular it would be good to know when the debt was assigned to Lowells and what contact or payments have you have made since that time.

 

Please ignore any mention of a thee letter system, it was a crazy idea that never worked.

Andyorch I suffer with dyslexia so I get muddled up with writing and numbers.

it takes me a long time to understand stuff.

That's why I didn't fill in the questionnaire it was hard for me....it's embarrassing 😔

 

A friend helped me do all this paperwork for this claim but she died 4 weeks ago unexpected and I'm struggling.

So you must file and serve by the 3rd of May...would you be able to get someone to assist you in preparing a statement ?

 

If you are and are going to struggle perhaps a settlement may be the best option for you...you can contact Lowell and suggest settlement by way of  Tomlin Order if they are in agreement to this with a monthly payment plan.

This is making me feel sick, this is disgusting. The OP needs a GP note, and to write to Lowell with it telling them they are in breach of their own code of practice.  If need be I will put the text of a letter together that the OP can use. He just needs to go to his doctor.

 

Lowell are a member of the CSA, it's plastered all over their web site.  CSA code of practice on mental health sections below in bold

 

J.when requesting evidence of mental health problems, seek appropriate information including, where necessary, requests for the completion of the Debt and Mental Health Evidence Form, or similar, from an appropriate/authorised person

 

k. in instances where the debtor is experiencing mental health problems, only initiate court action to pursue the debt if it is reasonable and proportionate to do so

 

l. ensure information in relation to the debtor’s mental health problems is passed on to the instructing client or any third party agent subsequently instructed
