CSA Maladministration since 2003

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi and thank you for reading.

 

I wasn't to sure which forum this should have been posted, my apologies if this isn't correct and please be so kind and point me in the right direction.

 

I'll try and keep it brief as possible but the case has been on-going now for 3 years.

 

Back in November 2003 the CSA miscalculated an assessment although all the information was correct. February 2005 my ex partner (PWC) submitted a complaint to the CSA and requested an appeal which they allowed. My ex-partner returned the completed paperwork December 2005, some 9 months later. I then received notification in the March 2006 from the Tribunal Services informing me that the CSA have re-calculated the assessment and found in favour of my ex-partner and therefore the Tribunal is not required.

 

Now i was under Act 1 as my ex partner and i went separate ways 1996. Due to be on Act 1 my new & current partners income was taken into my assessment as total household income. The November 2003 assessment failed to take into account my partners family benefit of £16.20 per week. This is money she would receive with or without being with me. The assessment increased my liability and was backdated to November 2003 now putting me in arrears.

 

Now with some great help from our local Citizen Advice Service, i placed a complaint under Maladministration as all the information they asked for was provided and therefore there mistake.

 

Now i remember at the time, the gentleman who helped me used some Law or Act that stated that as it was there error and being government, they could not claim the back arrears from me.

 

Did i dream this?

 

In my letter of complaint back in 2006 I did state that the arrears were not collectable.

 

I received both an apology, applanation and told that they will not be collecting the arrears along with £50 for the trouble.

 

I am not sure if this means anything but i was awarded Joint Custody and Care but the family courts in 2000. I mention this as i have been told my payments should have been at a reduced rate as my girls stopped over from Friday night through to Sunday evening tea.

 

i have been fighting the CSA/DWP who decided that i owed money and they want it. The thing is, my case closed in 2014 with a £0.00 balance.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi.

 

I'm sorry you haven't had any replies yet. The CSA forum isn't a very busy one and possibly few people have experience of this.

 

I've flagged your thread for the site team to see if someone can help.

Hi stu007

 

Thank you for posting. I have already obtained my records although, there was missing documents compared to my file. Whilst i was dealing with the CSA before my case closed in 2014 i kept meticulous records of all correspondence sent and received from the outset.

 

I received a another response Saturday from the complaints team with the normal canned response and completely ignored my questions and comments along with supporting evidence on their own paperwork. I have been requesting for the last 14 months their final response along with my reference.

 

Without this, i cannot take this ICE.

Hi

 

Could you just clarify when you sent the SAR and got there response to that SAR? (reason I ask is you refer to 2014)

 

Note - The Data Protection Act (DPA) has been updated due to the new General Data Protection Regulation ( GDPR)

 

It is now the Data Protection Act 2018, couple of links:

Hi Stu007,

 

The CSA was served the SAR in 2016 following the first correspondence received in respect to their claim.

 

The CSA did respond within a lawful time frame although a large portion of of documents were missing when comparing what was received against the records i kept over the years.

 

I am a little unsure where the GDPR is relevant unless i am ,missing something? :???:

 

My apologies the delay in responding.

 

Thanks

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
