    • Hi I hope all are ok in these trying times. I assume most of us will be in the same situation with employment etc.   I am obviously still intending to follow through my complaint against MB. However I do have to make decisions as I have found myself as will most people at this time left with a reduced minimal income, with all I can forsee is an impending up hill struggle for the forceable future.   So not sure what, if any options I still have, I am presuming VT was only an option earlier on and a court CO excludes that option,    I cant continue to honour the finance payments and cant even begin to estimate any timescales I would be again financially stable.   im trapped but want, no I need to get rid of MB all together, they can have the car and I learned the expensive way!   MB recently emailed a letter (which is copied below) in it they refer to a recent termination, this is the part that is very confusing as its my understanding they terminated the agreement in March 17.   They also inform they have placed the collections on hold, but then heres the cheeky bit, they do however want me to store the vehicle, tax and insure it, as per the agreement (the agreement that they already state was terminated) until they continue with their collection process;   Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic currently affecting the UK and wider world, we’re emailing to update you on what will now happen regarding the collection of your vehicle, following the termination of your Moneybarn vehicle finance agreement.   We won’t be collecting the vehicle at this time Normally, following termination of your agreement, we would arrange for an inspection and collection of the vehicle. However because of the current Government imposed lockdown, we are not currently able to collect vehicles until further notice.   What will happen next? Nothing for the moment. We’ll contact you as soon as there are any developments in the Government’s stance and we know that we’re able to resume our normal vehicle collection activity.   What do you need to do? We would appreciate if you can please keep the vehicle taxed and insured for the time being, as per the terms and conditions of your finance agreement. We hope this information is helpful and clear. Please stay safe and well, and if you need to contact us with any questions, please check out the latest information on the best way to reach us at   So they state termination, then expect to lay down instructions for me to comply with as per my finance agreement T&Cs. To look after the vehicle that they do intend to continue collection of.   If everythings terminated and in other words I have no right to the vehicle, Im not prepared to comply with instructions in line with a non existent agreement (I dont have to) and have a good mind to charge them storage.   However l would much rather just leave the car, send off V5 to change ownership and be done with it and concentrate on getting justice for their mistreatment.   
    • No it isn't funny, but there have been murmurs on Social media, dfesn't take much for twitterati and FaceBork to go off on one. Some in our area have been on about shooting the Goats in case they spread the virus, people in a panic are unpredictable.
    • If she has had a note from the NHS saying she is vulnerable and should shield, then she should stay at home, and there are special regulations for this   If not, she has choices a) go to work; asking for a copy of the risk assessment, and how she will be able to be at less risk than usual b) see a GP about her stress and get signed off c) resign   Lots of people are anxious about the current situation. Lots of people also work alone in offices or far away from people or at home.     What people don't get to do, is expect their employer to keep paying them in full, for no work, because they are anxious. So, she needs to choose. I think b) seems right for her, but tat's just based on what you have said, and no idea what her job is.

Today I received a white county courtlink3.gifclaim formlink3.gif from northampton for the MBNA Credit card 2008 – now with PRA GROUP - £2723 – defaulted 2012.

 

On 12th Nov PRA Group wrote to me in response to my returned PAP form where I stated I dispute the debt because I need more documents or information

 

Specifically I wrote:

 

I need a copy of

(1) the Default Notice,

 

(2) the Notice of Assignment,

 

(3) a complete set of statements detailing exactly how the debt has accrued detailing:

(a) All Transactions,

(b) Any additional charges, be them by the original creditor or you PRA Group (UK) Limited, the debt purchaser or any predecessor,

© Details of all contractual interest added by whom and on what date, (d) List of ALL Payments made toward the Agreement.

 

The PRA group letter on the 12th said, that in response to my query (PAP form)

please find enclosed copy of statement of account from MBNA and a copy of the credit agreement (was an online application 2008) plus statements from the MBNA credit card (virgin).

 

The letter goes on to say that they will put the account on hold for 30 days until 12th December to allow sufficient time to receive the letter and contact them.

 

Today I received the county court claim form.

 

I don't know what to do now?

 

Please advise.

Should I try to a negotiate an offer with PRA or will I have to pay in full somehow! I don't want a CCJ registered.

Thanks Andy,

 

What is the advantage of sending a CPR 31.14. Haven't PRA Group have already sent me these documents in the PAP response?

 

My questions are:

 

Do I have any defence - or is it too late?

The credit agreement copy sent to me was very brief with no signature etc. online application box ticked.

 

I would only be able to make a very small month payment (eg. £1) per month if agreeing to pay via the CCJ.

 

Is it possible to try and negotiate a reduced payment to settle in full with PRA Group

- there may be a possibility to raise 50% etc. via a family member to prevent a CCJ.

if so should this be done on the phone or in writing at this stage?

If I complete the AOS box in the MCOL as defend all to get me the additional time to defend and later find my defence is weak,

would I still be able to settle out of court with the claimant (perhaps with a reduced negotiated full and final) and still prevent the CCJ,

or is there a reduced time frame for settlement without CCJ still?

Thanks dx.

 

I have attached the agreement copy sent to me by PRA Group.

They sent just this along with the complete Virgin (MBNA) credit card statement history and the copy of notice of assignment. Nothing else.

 

Please advise if I have any defence for my CCJ claim form?

 

Note this is a 2008 credit agreement, not a pre 2007 one.

defence...

 

as it goes, that is what has been returned in many MBNA threads for that time as meeting the requirements of the act.

 

however, as pointed, the lack of a default notice has been successful many times regarding a court claim.

Thanks dx,

 

So my (only?) defence currently would be to this part of the claim

 

On (----) the defendant defaulted on the agreement with an outstanding balance of £----

 

 

For this para:

 

On 06/2012 the debt of £7900 was assigned to Aktiv Kapital Portfolio ASA, Oslo, Zug Branch, who itself assigned the debt to PRA Group (UK) Ltd on 12/2014. Notices of assignment were sent to the defendant in accordance with S136 Law of Property Act 1925.

 

I only received a copy of the letter from 2015 saying that my account was assigned to PRA from Activ Kapital and that for my inforamtion on Nov 2014 Aktiv Kaptial changed its name to PRA Group

 

I do not recall having a letter of assignment from Activ Kaptial in 2012, can that also be used as a defence?

 

 

 

This part below of the claim worries me (DMP payments), would a court not see that as admitting the debt, regardless of missing default notice?

 

Payments of £5200 were received up to (7/2017) and the claimant claims 1.

Its irrelevant what you have been paying nor an admittance....it was not subject to enforcement at that time.On line applications are notoriously difficult to defend but given the age of this agreement it still must comply with the CCA1974 and The Consumer Credit (Agreements) Regulations 2010 the relevant legislation that governs on line distance applications.

Thanks all. AOS (defend all) done and CPR sent recorded delivery.

Working on my defence, will probably need your help on that at some point soon.

 

Can someone let me know what happens if the court do not accept my defence?

Will I get an automatic judgement or do I would I have time to make a settlement / reypayment offer etc.

Torch - your understanding of how best to handle this doesn't seem very strong.

That places you in a tricky predicament, particularly in view of the documentation that the claimant has produced.

 

You could press on and defend this in the hope that they cannot comply on the DN point, but even that requires some understanding and skill.

Nevertheless, rather than admit defeat (as a worst case scenario), I'd be thinking about entering a standard CAG defence (which will include a challenge on the DN), then set about working how best to negotiate the best possible deal for yourself.

 

It will cost the claimant to take this all the way to court, so it would make sense at the very least to come up with an estimate of what that would cost, and knock at least that amount off the total.

 

Next, I'd work out how many default charges the account has incurred, plus any interest.

Knock that off the total too.

 

You could consider hitting them with a that as a full and final settlement offer on an affordable monthly repayment plan as part of a Tomlin Order, which would avoid a CCJ, so long as you keep maintain the repayments.

 

It would save you no end of stress too.

They'd have to accept the offer though - but I know from experience that they are open to that sort of approach.

Thanks for your thoughts shamrocker.

Note that they did previously offer me a full an final discount of about 20% which was ignored.

 

I'm going to submit the defence.

If I do offer a full and final, when would be the best timing to do that?

your defence is not due/by till 4pm Friday 18th Jan.

 

there are lots of threads here to read in the meantime to have a go yourself in making one

post it up here for us to help you with it nearer the time.

you do NOT have to await anything from them in regards to the CPR return.

 

there is a very long way to go

and numerous stages whereby your offer could be introduced. IF it looks likely you might not have a strong case.

 

mediation stage

 

disclosure stage

 

the claim might not even get that far.

you need to remember that all these claims here are SPECULATIVE and automated..hoping people will wet themselves and cough up.
