    • OK, so I've rather unfairly picked up a CCJ from a business overdraft debt that's been going on for years. I had court claim forms in 2014 which I managed to stave off. and again in sept 2016. This time I've acknowledged the service, filling in what I thought was the correct amount I thought I owed. I've since had the personal guarantee paper copies in my possession and I owe £21K. I sent them back along with a new address for all correspondence to be sent to, and then agreed to a Tomlin order to pay debt off monthly.  Now, these were sent back and forth and eventually signed, but apparently only partially. So DD was set up at same time, in Jan 2017. over next couple of months we paid, and also go letters to sign new Tomlin which we ignored as it was signed. In March we got another TO with 7 days to sign it and send back. We had one day to get this to them and phoned to say it wouldn't be there, that's ok they said, well extend it, just keep paying and send it back asap, we did send recorded (since lost receipt). We assumed they'd got it, and didn't hear a peep from them. Until July 18, when I found id got a CCJ from Feb that year. I've logged a complaint with solicitor, and had a response, they are denying any knowledge of anything. They had no TO so took it to court without my knowledge.  I didn't think there was anything I can do. However, as it turns out, the court sent papers to an old address even though solicitor had new address for 13 months, and address for correspondence was on the claim papers I sent back. Upon closer inspection the numbers are all wrong too, nor a lot but its about £200 adrift. We called their office too within the 30 day notice period, oddly they have no record of that.  And all this is on a "Business Charge Card Guarantee" …. anyone explain that?? In the mean time we've paid £5K+ of the debt off. At no point did anyone in the process let us know we'd had the CCJ logged against us. Is that right?? Or legal? I was intending to get it set side, but was told by them it was pointless. Just want to get back to point A. Paying it isn't the problem, it getting the CCJ reset. Please Help!!! 
    • same with jaguar s-types etc. all kind of weird issues if the battery is on the way out or the terminals/earth straps are not reconnected tightely/properly.   mine was the earthing strap to the gearbox, was rotted and got knocked during the gearbox oil change.
    • what have they got that they can respond too that counters your SB defence? zilch.   as with every erudio claimform or PAPLOC thread on CAG you solely got the claim because for whatever reason , to that date, everything was ignored.   once a response is made they go away.   default CCJ avoided. you must read up and understand how arrows [erudio!!] operate  
    • so won by a section 75 claim under the consumer credit act then   consequential losses are also covered by section 75 as the card provide is equally liable as you've already found out   as for the dealer and court there is no time limit, well 6yrs I believe   though it would be a tough battle but made slightly easier as BC coughed up. but again what would you in all reality 'win' probably go bust or change name        
    • It was settled by Barclaycard because I bought the car using my VISA credit card. Do you know if there is a time limit for taking the company to court to claim the consequential expenses incurred?

I have been contacted by TFL for using my sisters card.

How do I start a new thread to get help.

 

I had apologised to TFL for using my sisters travel pass with my photo card.

They have wrote me another letter saying it can’t be an error.

 

I rang them up to see if there were any chances to settle this out of court.

To which they replied they do not settle out of court.

I really don’t want a criminal record for my mistake.

I am looking forward to this forum to help me.

 

I said to TFL, that I picked it up while hurrying for work.

It was a staff discount card.

It is not age related.

 

I wrote a letter apologising and will to pay fines and administrative costs.

Thank you for the extra information. My reply to you seems to have gone walkabout but you've answered my questions.

 

TfL don't like this sort of thing, they don't understand [and I don't really] how you can pick up a card that doesn't look like your own, if you have one, and then use it with the wrong photo ID.

 

Have you had a court summons so far?

 

We have a couple of other similar threads here but I don't think they've been resolved yet. It's worth having a read around the forum.

I do not have a court summons yet.

They have written to me that they are still deciding.

 

My sisters monthly pass was left on the table ( it did not have her picture but just a small photo ID number).

I mistakenly took it thinking it’s mine only looking until when it was valid.

 

How do I explain this to TFL?

I regret not being more aware.

I don't know how to explain it, maybe someone else will. We see this story all the time and it's amazing the coincidences that happen when there's a full-priced card and a discount card. From what TfL have said to you, it seems they've heard the same thing a lot.

 

You can keep talking to them up to and including any court day to try to resolve this.

Thanks for your advice. Are there any chances of settling this out of court?

 

what other form of apology would they accept? Should I write to them again?

We have too little detail to be able to fully advise.

 

What really happened?

What colour wallets were the card (s) in?. If not their original wallets, why not?

 

Bear in mind CAG has heard all sorts of stories of how someone 'accidentally' used the wrong pass. Some seem more plausible than others.

TfL will have heard as many, and more. How do you intend to persuade them yours has the ring of truth (starting with the whole, unvarnished truth is a good starting point ....)

 

Do you think you might accidentally have used the wrong pass more than once?.

I did not use the pass before.

I did ask my sister why her pass was lying on the table and not in her photocard holder.

She said that she had spilled coffee on her photocard holder and removed the travel pass and kept it on the table.

 

Is it worth explaining this to TFL or just saying that I used my sisters card?

If you picked up your sister's staff pass, not in a wallet:

a) why wasn't your pass in a wallet?

b) what colour is your pass? and hers?.

 

Was hers like:

Was it really a mistake?. If it was, be prepared to explain it in detail, as TfL hear "it was a mistake" all the time.

I did not have a valid pass for that month. Both mine and my sisters monthly passes would be similar.

 

They are not blue, but orange with an expiry date in bold in the centre.

So you're saying that you only used your sister's pass once, but that you took it knowing that you didn't have your own pass that month? That doesn't look great.

 

Remember that TfL can check journeys on the card going back about 8 weeks.

This was my mistake. I did not realise I did not buy a pass for that month.

So, not only did you mistake your Sister’s staff pass for your pass, you forgot you hadn’t bought a pass that month.

 

I can’t see TfL being convinced this was an honest mistake.

Will it be better if I say I did it on purpose? But if I did, it would mean that I lied in my first letter

I don’t know, what is the truth??

The problem with lying is remembering who you have told what. The advantage of the truth : only one version to remember!

I received a letter from TFL stating that I was reported for failing to provide a valid ticket, pass or photo-card on a TFL journey. I write this letter to explain my version of events.

 

I took my sisters monthly pass in a haste while leaving my house. When asked to show my valid ticket for the journey, I showed the pass and the inspector pointed out it was not my pass. I realised my mistake and he withdrew both and took my interview under caution.

 

I would like to apologise to the TFL team and I am willing to pay any fines, or the charges due to extra administration work TFL had to go thorough because of my mistake. Hoping that TFL would to solve the matter out of court.

if that's all you sent IMHO its a bit bare and you seriously need to come clean, unless you honestly thought yours was still valid and picked hers up thinking it was your valid card?

 

but if you really knew yours was empty and took hers par chance you didn't get caught and did...

its sort of in a way going in your favour, as you knew you'd be caught and did...

 

pers I think you need to send another, more frank and honest begging letter like the ones we have here..

if yours was only what is above, it doesn't address their pondering that it wasn't a mistake.

 

might be better if you scan yup their reply to PDF please

read upload.

I agree with dx. To have any chance of TfL settling this, in addition to what dx says, you need to show genuine remorse and tell them what impact a conviction would have on your career or future career. And you need to promise you'll never, ever do this again.

Their reply basically said 'I should have had the photo ID if I was using the pass and they do not consider this a mistake'.

Thank you. But the best way for us to advise it to see a pdf of the actual letter minus any of your personal details.
