    • Their Order is somewhat confusing...yes you get your set a side and they will not object.   No defence has ever been submitted so it can't stand.(unless you submitted a defence with your application ?) They then state Directions Questionnaires be issued (goes to allocation) and then the next paragraph states the claim is stayed.   Anyway the " Schedule  " is irrelevant it's the " ordered by consent " part that matters.....claim is stayed.     Typical Robbers Way     Andy    
    • Yes thanks both  Have been on the phone to a UC call centre today  to help someone in my Council ward, they said that there is NO paper based system, but if someone is blind or has a vulnerability that makes it difficult to access  then what TomTom has linked to is a way to do it.  That mythbuster link is very useful indeed. DWP are known for pushing easy options  (for them) but will help at a Jobcentre if no other way.
    • UKDomains that's a great shout, I'll open a support ticket on LBC & hopefully they can provide that information.   I've just spent 2 hours in branch, it turns out the fraud dept. never received the proof of entitlement that the branch scanned & emailed to 2 separate email addresses given. That has led to the 3 chargeback amounts, & once again the girl on the other end of the phone had "no idea" about the £685.16, & said "it must be a calculation" well that's good & vague. I have the name of the person in branch I've been dealing with (who has been great btw, & has suffered through this this with me).   Also, by sheer coincidence, she was dealing with the very same rude woman in the fraud dept. who refused to give me her name the other day, but did provide it to the lady in Branch. So now I have that in full, & her employee ID.    I did query with the woman in branch, why TSB aren't backing a customer who has proven beyond any doubt that the transaction was legitimate. Her response? "I got the strong impression when I called the Fraud  dept. on Monday, that we've already reversed the funds to Monzo Bank, this is why they want you to pay the money back into your account."   Well how stupid is that, based on what can only have been a verbal claim by Monzo's customer, this has led to TSB saying "here you go".  & then asking me to kindly underwrite their own stupidity.   I have also just received this by email:   Hi Gavin   Thank you for your note and for contacting me about the difficulties you’ve encountered with TSB.     I have passed your note on to my Head of Customer Service and asked her to ensure that either she, or one of her team, contact you as soon as possible.     Thank you once again for contacting me.     Kind regards     Debbie    Debbie Crosbie CEO, TSB         
    • Many thanks for this alternative advice tomtom   Andy
    • You can do it now. I have saved evidence that it was their mistake, so even if the letters arrive it won't come to nothing

    • 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.

Hey folks, sending the following IRL Complaint unless advised otherwise.

 

Cheers.

 

Formal Complaint Regarding Irresponsible Lending

Loan Ref: 

I wish to log a formal complaint in relation to irresponsible lending. To begin with, you should formally be aware, the FCA took over regulation of the credit market from April 2014 and then imposed caps on all high-cost short-term credit (HCSTC) in 2015.

These rules were set up to stop irresponsible lending and they included;

1.    Affordability checks for every credit agreement to ensure that only customers that can afford a loan can get a loan
2.    Rollovers:
a.    Limiting Rollovers to two;
b.    Limiting the number of attempts a payday lender to use CPAs to pay off a loan, to two;
c.    Information on where to get free debt advice will be given to every borrower that rolls over a loan
3.    Treat customers in arrears more fairly
4.    Do not relend to customers who appear to have taken numerous loans in a short period
5.    Report information correctly to the CRAs & limit daily interest to below 0.8% per £100.00 borrowed
6.    Default charges limited to £15.00 or less / Can only be applied once per loan

But also, the FCA stated that lenders should implement their own policy and change how they lend to customers. Well I believe you failed because:

1.    Before you were lending to me as shown in the statements provided by your company
a.    You did not do appropriate checks , should you have used the appropriate due diligence, you would have seen that I was under a tremendous amount of financial pressure with other loans that would have made this loan unaffordable
b.    Should you have done the appropriate affordability checks at the time of the loan, you would have seen I would have had more than one loan on the go and therefore a large proportion of my outgoings servicing already existing accounts
c.    On my credit file, I cannot find any searches that had been completed by at said time of loan being offered. While the searches may have disappeared, I would have expected to see some evidence that your firm did a ‘hard’ search to check my financial commitments
d.    I was using these other loans to pay off other loans to ‘companies’ and this ended up creating a spiral of debt

I am bringing this to your attention because I believe that you as a lender did not treat me with Due Respect or use Due Diligence and have allowed me to get into this position. I would also expect a company to check bank statements as part of their underwriting criteria, again you as a lender failed to request or examine any of my statements at the time the loan was offered.

I am also aware that lenders may not have used Credit Reference Agencies before regulations came in. However, although CallCredit was the main agency that firms did use if they did, I would still expect to see some form of credit check completed.

I await your response on how this complaint can be resolved by your company.

You also need to see notices of assignment under section 139 of theLOPa 1925, lso default notices under the CCA section 87 for all accounts sold to Lowell's.

 

136Legal assignments of things in action.

(1)Any absolute assignment by writing under the hand of the assignor (not purporting to be by way of charge only) of any debt or other legal thing in action, of which the assignor would have been entitled to claim such debt or thing in action, is effectual in law (subject to equities having priority over the right of the assignee) to pass and transfer from the date of such notice—

 

Please supply a copy of the default notice issued under section 87 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. You will be aware that under the Act, a default notice is required before an action can be brought or account terminated.

In addition, a notice under the LOPA is required before an account can be assigned.


DO NOT PAY UPFRONT FEES TO COLD CALLERS PROMISING TO WRITE OFF YOUR DEBTS

DO NOT PAY UPFRONT FEES FOR COSTLY TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS WITH SO CALLED "EXPERTS" THEY INVARIABLY ARE NOTHING OF THE SORT

BEWARE OF QUICK FIX DEBT SOLUTIONS, IF IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT INVARIABLY IS

Question guys -

 

If the alleged loan was applied for online and a "digital signature" was used to complete the application, what then constitutes an original CCA as it won't be like a paper based one that has a 'wet' signature. 

 

As Lowell appear to have a copy of the online application what would they be expected to bring to court and would the document they have be enough for them to win? Or am I missing something in my knowledge on this?

 

Thanks.
