I have six outstanding debts that defaulted over six years ago.

 

Five have been passed on to DCAs, one remains with the original company.

 

I pay a nominal amount each month.

 

From reading various threads on the site it seems that once passed to a DCA payment should still be made to the OC.

 

I am confused because in the case of an outstanding amount to the AA they have only recently sent a letter advising they have assigned the debt to Intrum.

 

In the case of four of the other debts I am confused as to who I should be paying, especially when you receive a letter from a DCA saying they have bought the debt. If they haven't then how do they get the debt and if I pay them why does the OC not contact me when the monthly payment is missed?

If the debt have been assigned to the DCA then payment should be to the new legal owner...assuming they are legally allowed to collect on the debt and there is no dispute with the original creditor for withholding payment.


We could do with some help from you.

Can you provide more details on each debt please

 

One is a loan, four are cc and one is an overdraft.

 

All defaulted from 2011 to end of January this year.

 

The loan has been with Blair Oliver & Scott, Drysden Fairfax, Westcot and now Ingrum.

 

CCs - HSBC

Lloyds - passed to PRA

Sainsburys - now with Cabott

Tesco - just passed to DCA

M&S - still with M&S.

 

I pay a nominal sum each month for the above.

 

My Lloyds overdraft has been with Cabott for some months. Lloyds defaulted me and so did Cabott so I have these two remaining. I emailed Cabott to get them to remove it, they said they would. Wrote to Lloyds to get them to remove the default. They wrote back apologising for it not being removed sooner.

 

I have not requested a CCA for any of them. I am going to though.

 

Thanks!

Overdrafts don't fall under the normal CCA request, but I guarantee that it's littered with reclaimable fees and charges?

 

When did you take the loan out?

 

Was this a Halifax loan?

 

Was there any PPI on it?


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

HOW DO I START A NEW THREAD?

Loan was with the AA.

 

It was taken out in 2005 I think. Without checking I'm not 100% sure.

 

Unsure about PPI but I have sent them a SAR to check.

If that is the case how come Cabot contacted me saying they bought the debt from Lloyds and Sains?

 

They have also on a number of occasions offered me a "settlement" figure on both amounts which I have declined on both occasions!

 

PRA - so are they chasing for this debt when in fact they probably don't own it? I have only had one conversation with them as they told me they can't contact me as I had specified no contact by phone or letter in a letter I sent them over two years go. This is all very strange.

 

I had a letter from the AA last week telling me they have assigned my debt to Intrum .

 

I will certainly CCA the DCA ones for sure.

 

Thank you!

Just because they bought a debt, doesnt mean its enforceable. CCA them. The offer of a settlement/discount also shows that its unenforceable. They just want to get SOMETHING from you befor eyou find out how its unenforceable.

What do you mean by "unenforceable"? Hold fire I just checked and it is what I thought it was!

 

In that case would the OC sell the debt to for example Cabot for x amount and then Cabot basically try their luck to get me to pay any amount?

 

My AA loan is not with Intrum - I am getting confused as I posted about another debt that they had bought.

 

I will check the AA loan and update :)

True I have been here on and off since 2011 :wink:

however in my defence I have found it a bit of a grey area with regard to DCA especially when you have had a letter from the OC advising of them passing the debt on.

 

Do you pay the DCA or not?

As I said above I have been paying some a minimal amount but will stop now and CCA them.

just type no need to hit reply with quote

makes a thread twice as long.

several unnecessary of previous posters responses removed

 

there is passing on, whereby the dca states their client is still the OC

those you ignore the dca and onlt ever deal direct with the OC.

 

then there is selling the debt on whereby you get a notice of assignment that tells you its been sold and now owned by xyz DCA.

typically you get a letter from the dca introducing themselves in the same envelope

 

brig explained all this years ago in your other threads here.

 

anyway, with and enforceable and signed consumer credit agreement they aint going nowhere.

which is why a CCA request is so important once a debt ha been sold on.

 

ideally you should have stopped paying years ago.

force their hand, then you findout the truth

Ok - noted what you say about hitting reply with quote......

 

I have posted 115 times - you over 124,000. Replies on here may be straightforward and obvious to some but others may find them not so easy to get their heads round.

 

If Brig explained this years ago - I didn't understand it all then as otherwise I would not have fretted as I have done over some of my still outstanding debts. I was more concerned with the defaults, finding employment again after redundancy started this mess, so by paying only a minimal monthly amount I at least stopped the harassment I experienced initially from both the OC and DCAs.

defaults shouldnt harm employment changes at all AS. not sure where you've got that from...

 

its better they are defaulted, as I think most of yours are ?

then the debts vanish from your credit file after 6yrs regardless to what you do with them ….paying or not, paid off or not

never to return.

 

you've highlighted the only thing a dca can do..harassment. that's about it really

they've no more legal powers than you or I.

No that's not what I meant at all. I was made redundant and the debts are a knock on effect from that - it took me a while to find further employment. Nothing to do with defaults I know!

 

Yes all mine have vanished with the exception of a Lloyds one that should have done some time ago. I wrote to them asking them to remove it and they replied apologising and saying they will get it removed. Cabot also filed a default which ended on 28.01.19 and which will go on the next update of my credit report. They should not have logged this default at all.

 

Thanks!

The AA loan I have that I have been defaulted on and which is no longer showing on my credit report as six years have elapsed has been passed to Cabot.

 

I have received SAR documentation which I requested from Lloyds and surprisingly the paperwork from the loan was included - have since noted HBOS are part of Lloyds.     On looking through the paperwork I came across the words "bad debt W/O".   I have written to Lloyds again to gain clarity on this as there was nothing relating to them passing this over to Cabot.      If the debt has been written off how have Cabot got their hands on it?     I still find it confusing how DCAs seemingly cherry pick debtors.   Is their a database they have access to or something?

w/o means the original creditors has written it off as bad debt on their books.

 

reclaimed against tax and got payouts from their business insurance scheme they might have

then they sell it on to a debt buyer for 15p=£1

then they come after you for the full value

it cant come back on your file.

 

see what cabot do.

So they do that and still sell on to debt buyer?   What low lifes eh?    Then the DCA will chase and harass for the original outstanding amount.    You couldn't make it up really could you.

 

Nothing from Cabot so far.     Thanks for the response.

Included in a SAR I requested from Sainsburys CC are lots of statements with the outstanding balance remaining exactly the same each month.      I have never been sent any of these statements.     Would that be because Cabot have been involved in chasing for money?

    • There are a number of points in respect of your proposed letter. Firstly, you are referring to the overpayment – "it has not been possible to resolve this matter…" As if this has been an ongoing issue. I'm not aware that it has. I'm not aware that you have had any dispute with them in which overpayment of £116.55 has been the subject. So in that respect, the reference you are making has no meaning. Secondly, you are proposing to provide them with documents which you going to rely upon. I don't think this is the place to do it. This is something that would come after you see what their defence is and you are preparing for a hearing. You are trying to get them too much information to early on. You should provide them with a minimum of information at this point. Your offering the mediation – they are not mature enough to be able to deal with this. If you want to get into mediation then you should say that for later. At the moment they will simply see it as another weak threat from somebody who doesn't really want to take legal action and who probably won't. All the rest sounds a bit like an attempt to be a lawyer – (which is generally speaking not a good thing). Also, you are offering them 28 days. This seems like a long time to me. A normal letter of claim would give only 14 days. As far as I'm concerned, 28 days is simply 14 more days in which to ignore you. I think firstly you need to decide whether you want to raise the issue of the overpayment by writing to them and telling them that you have calculated that you have overpaid them and that you like the money back. Of course this will draw no response whatsoever or it will draw threat. If you take that first step then I'm quite sure that you will be obliged to take the second step – which is to issue the letter of claim. Of course you can simply issue the letter of claim without any other warning. In which case:  
    • All gone quiet on this funnily enough.   Any ideas where to go from here?
    • Both of my CCAs were pretty much illegible.   My husband's form is quite clear though, but it was a simple 2 page form, which refers to lots of T&Cs. The actual T&Cs that accompanied the CCA was a photocopy of what would have been their standard T&Cs at the time apparently - not necessarily the exact ones he would have seen.   I have now had the same PAP letter for my 2 accounts saying that they're referring my accounts to their litigation department so all 3 accounts now passed to their litigation department.    So 3 PAPs to complete. I have the CCAs so there's no point in asking for that again is there? But in box D, what do I write as to why I'm disputing it? I will get these sent back to them over the next few days.   Re. post 232, if I had all the time in the World and a scanner I could have uploaded these docs. However, I will have to buy a scanner to scan the hundreds of pages, but I will. I will do this as soon as I possibly can.  Thanks for the help.
    • well £50+int doesnt = 42% and 42% is a weird figure to offer a discount on.   somethings up IMHO.   wait and see what they send next don't forget they've got to send a PAP letter before they try and litigate. do we know if things like the DN exist? has HSBC gotten an sar sent yet
  • Our picks

    • 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....

    • 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.
