    • as you have appealed you have lost certain protections in law but that doesnt change the law of contract. if you live close to the site or visit there can you please take some pictures of the car park entrance, any signs there and any signs inside the car park plus more importantly pictures of the offending payment machine. You can pretend to enter something to show what you can and cant see to highlight the problem and use this stick of their to beat them with. They dont ahve a hope in hell in enforcing this  but being  a buch of litigious and greedy cowboys they will, unjfortunately not see reason. what did their rejecton letter say? No IPC member ever accepts an appeal and nor do the IAS, they are not honest brokers so dotn be put off by this. Please redact any personal information and that will include car reg and any reference numbers, bar codes QR codes etc   If you still have the ticket even better as it show that you paid and then any other demand they make as a condition of parking is of no real consequence
    • Have had phone contact from the court. Judge has sent a court date of mid August, as he wants to see how to proceed in light of the "mystery" discontinuation form. As far as I'm aware, he requires all to attend on the date. I do need to double check the attendance requirements though, as I'm not at home to see the actual letter notification.
    • One from the newspapers, a motorist who took time to change his baby's nappy before feeding the meter at Sutton Harbour, Plymouth was sued by Britannia parking but the judge threw out the claim becuse "neither the sign or the small print made it sufficiently clear that the time started when entering the car park". Now as usual the paper refers to a "fine" and  it has been commented on before by judges tht the clock doesnt start when you enter the car park but should only take into account the actual parking period and hence the MINIMUM 10 minute grace period. So peeps, look at the wording fo the signage and if there isnt a clear definition of the grace period no binding contract! Will they change their ANPR systems to reflect this? Of course not, the majority of people will pay up even though the charge is unlawful.
    • yous is the reason already there
    • Purely out of curiosity, if I don't pay and go to court will the fine be more if i'm found guilty?

    • 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.

Arrows/drydens - 1998 MBNA card debt

Recommended Posts

I've an outstanding debt now with Capquest which I have been religiously paying £20.00 each month without fail. 

This has gone on now for about 4 years. 

 

When they ask for a copy of my Income & Expenditure I write back to them,

I have requested in writing this is the only means in which i will converse with them,

although they still telephone me and leave messages which i have ignored

 

I write and say

"I have reviewed my payments and at this time I am unable to pay you any more than I am currently paying".  

 

I last wrote to them on the 2nd April saying this and I have received a letter from them today dated 10th April stating as

"regrettably they haven't heard from me my account will be sent to their solicitors". 

 

Advice please,

I will add currently I cannot pay any more than what I am currently paying.

Hi Dx, No I haven't requested anything from them.  I simply didn't know what to do, by paying the £20.00 each month I kept them at bay.  So your advice would be to request a CCA request from them and see what they send me?  It was a credit card debt

Who is the debt with and what was the original amount at default?  Crapquest might well have inflated it with spurious naughty fees.


We could do with some help from you.

You cant change the past but you can control the future. 

I would keep any written correspondence you have sent so that if a claim does come through, you have proof that you DID make contact and the claimant failed to respond. 

 

CCA request time...

Hi. Does that make a difference in a court claim then?  Ignored efforts to mediate a settlement or payment plan?

Sorry I've taken so long to reply I've had IT problems which are now sorted! 

 

To try and answer some of the questions asked above. 

I've just sent off a CCA request but not to Capquest as I've had a letter from Drydens Fairfax saying that Arrow Global are their client and they believe that my current financial circumstances allow me to repay my account over a reduced period. 

They understand that I am currently making payments but do not have a financial arrangement in place.

 

The letter came with a 6 page Income and Expenditure form with a Direct Debit at the end. 

 

I also received a letter the same day from Arrow Global saying the management of my account has been passed to Drydens Fairfax.  I''ve sent the CCA to them. 

 

I am making repayments of £20.00 per month which I have never defaulted on. 

It is a credit card debt from MBNA which has been passed to quite a few DCA's over the years. 

 

The card was taken out round about 1988 all ok, they kept increasing my credit limit until it was approx £16k, I unfortunately kept spending always paying at least the minimum each month. 

 

I paid about £3k off it round about 2015 so they immediately reduced my credit limit to just the amount I owed so I immediately went into charges!

The current balance is just over £13k.  

 

I couldn't sustain the minimum amount so completed an original income and expenditure form and stated I could afford £20.00 per month this was accepted and I've paid this ever since.

 

There are no charges being placed on the account. 

I have never completed any further income and expenditure forms always batting them back saying £20.00 was the maximum I could pay. 

 

Sorry for long post but is there anything else I should be doing right now? 

 

Many thanks

the playing with the credit limit will be a reason for complaint and that will at least get the subsequent charges removed. If the bak has sold the debt on then they will wish tey hadnt as they will have to pay you in cash rather then knocking it off the debt.

have a look through all of the statements and see how much has been added in fees  and then use an interest calculator to see how much they owe you now.

This wont affect any noise the current dca is making but it will make the debt smaller as you will be able to show that the amount was incorrectly calculated and that will shut them up for a while

they have to respond to a CCA inside 14 days so if they ahvent replied with teh correct info you can stop paying them the £20/m until they do

Many thanks for prompt reply. 

I haven't received a PAP letter from Drydensfairfax as far as I am aware. 

Its just a letter stating they are instructed by their client Arrow Global and understand they have written to me recently as they believe that my current financial circumstances allow me to repay my account over a reduced period. 

I don't know how they know this but if I could have paid more I would have been doing this! 

 

There is enclosed an income and expenditure form, 6 pages for me to fill in ending with a DD instruction. 

I have sent off a CCA request yesterday with the £1.00 Postal Order.

I'm not sure which post and attachment I should be following if any at this stage. 

 

Could you please clarify.  Many thanks

If that's the case, and it's just the DCA it's really none of their business whatsoever to ask for an income and expenditure.  If they haven't replied to your CCA request within 14 days then ignore them, until such a time when or if they send a PAP letter.

Morning chaps,

Well things have moved on slightly

 

I sent off the CCA request last week so no reply yet with regards to that

 

i did receive this morning a PAP Letter saying the original credit card was taken out in May 1997 and assigned to Arrow Global on 31st October 2012. 

 

A copy of the agreement can be requested using a reply form. 

They said they attached a statement of account which was a one page letter saying how much I had paid over the last 12 months only. 

 

It also states "legal proceedings may be issued against you in the County Court". 

It gives an info sheet setting out the basis for sending me this letter and a reply form which I must return within the relevant time frame if I wish to respond.

 

The first question on the reply form asks

 

"D you owe this debt"? 

It again attaches a 6 page Income and Expenditure form for me to complete so their client can consider my financial situation and consider my offer. 

 

What should I do next? 

 

Many thanks

Many thanks for this, I've printed out the reply form and completed apart from one section, you state " I dispute this debt because..recommended reason as advised from your thread and add the debt purchaser has yet to provide any or all of the required documentation".  I'm not sure what the recommended reason should be, ok they haven't replied to the CCA request yet and I've put that in but is there anything else I should put in that section?
