CapQuest CAT debt - made DD to Restons - DD changed to Dryden without my consent?

Recommended Posts

For a while now I've been paying small amounts "owed" to Capquest, directly to Restons who were dealing with it. I was paying via direct debit. 

Last week my bank informed me via e-mail that a new direct debit had been set up to a company called "AllPay ltd RE DFS Ltd". As I didn't recognised it I phoned my bank and cancelled it. 

 

Yesterday I received a letter from Drydens Fairfax saying that they had bought the debt from Capquest and that any correspondence now had to be made to them, and also that I didn't have to do anything as the direct debits would now go to their bank account via Allpay Ltd! So that explained the direct debit that appeared on my bank account without my consent. 

I also received a letter from Capquest yesterday infoming me of the same, and that they had "Passed my account details and payment history" to Drydens Fairfax. 

 

I am outraged that a company would pass on my BANK DETAILS to a third party without my consent. 

 

Not only did I not agree to this but surely this is against data protection laws?

 

I intend to fight this as I did not ask for this company to buy my debt, and I bet they don't have a CCA

 

My question is, what template letter should I start with?

I fully agree and thats why this infested industry needs renewed regulation ..they have carte blance ...not complying with the LoP Act or the CCA1974  nor the DPA.

 

Click the underlined CCA in your post.

Thank you. With regards to the original creditor passing my bank details and personal details onto a third party, what can I do?

It also has my old name on and on the bank details that they said they held for me, my old name, which of course is not the name on my bank account. 

Anyway I've cancelled that DD now so they're not getting anything from me. But I do want to take action against Capquest for passing on my bank details.

Capquest, or restons, passed my bank details onto another company without my consent. 

Min my opinion, that should not happen. 

This means they must have stored my bank account details, which is illegal.

no you've already given your consent on the agreement you made with the original creditor.

but anyway..as andy eludes too

why are you blindly paying a DCA or their dogs anyway?

DX - Under DPA they are allowed to sell the account as part of the T&Cs but financial data is covered under PCI DSS Compliance and they cannot "Just" send financial payment details to another company and set up a DD willie nillie. They need consent from the SC / ACC holder and a signed DD Mandate. 

This is a very very shady thing to be doing. If paying by Standing Order however - Its different as the Debtor is in control of payments and while the company can see SC / ACC on payments, they cant just set up a DD :) 

 

I believe that the ICO needs to get involved here. :)

Because, Restons got a CCJ against me for ANOTHER debt I didn’t pay, not only that but all correspondence was sent to my old address and CCJ was without my knowing until the new owner of my old house moved in and forwarded the mail to me (house was empty for a year).

 

When I received letter regarding this debt, I was scared and Restons bullied me. I’d been very ill, and wasn’t able to fight, so I just agreed to pay it.

 

Stupid thing is, in the past I’ve foufhg loads of debts and had them either written off or just left, and are now statute barred. So I know what to do I’m just rusty at it and need a bit of help and support.

Not sure why Martin Lewis never covers this on his programme.  He should be shouting from the rooftops. Don't pay DCA's without a CCA.  

MSE never has, nor no mainstream media...even radio 4 shows

yes std CAG advise is to use SO not a DD

 

but this was done over the phone and unrecordedi suspect... before the OP was wise from CAG advise.

 

I would suspect that the reston dd has been cancelled and a new one,  following the clients instructions set up via drydens, with previous permission gained over the phone, under their  client instructions to be able to do so. 

 

agreed not right.

agreed short practice

but a payment via dd was agreed to a solicitor operating under their clients instructions to do so...

those instructions were carried out...

 

an sar to CQ, restons & drydens might prove useful, 

but if there is really any there there to go after is debatable...

Thanks for the info so far. 

I've sent a CCA request with postal order. 

I want to write to Capquest aswell to complain about them passing on my data (direct debit details) to another company, as from what I understand after a little bit of research, they have breached GDPR laws. 

Is there a template for this?

Not sure about GDPR laws.....possibly Banking and the Direct Debit guidelines.

    • 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.
