    • Look at some respected Viral epidemiologists working on this new virus on Twitter versus the crazy unverified reports of people 'dropping like flies'. Plenty of conspiracy theories from people trying to sell books too.   It's widely thought that some of the increase in cases is due to not having tests available at the beginning, and that there are large numbers of people who had mild symptoms, that never got detected.  Therefore it's likely that the mortality is much lower than thought. Also think about how many people are lining up in hospitals who might only have a cold but are terrified from all the panic.   However all are urging caution, that much more will be revealed over the coming weeks as the infections accelerate.   It is terrifying to see a city on lockdown, but also worth understanding even a 0.5% fatality rate in China is 10's of millions of people. That's why they are acting like it's a Hollywood disaster movie.    
    • Hello, can anyone help please?   As part of new City regulators affordability rules I'm about to have my barclaycard (£6000 balance) taken away from me as I'm only meeting the monthly payments and never clearing down the balance. Barclaycard wrote to me and asked for £750 a month which is way out of reach on my income.    Having been around this site for many years I'm very reluctant to speak to them, does anyone have any advice on how I should proceed here? This card is around 5yrs old and I'm committed to paying off the debt. Stopping the interest and agreeing a payment plan would suit me but will they go for it? Should I let it default and just deal with the debt agency?    Any advice would be most welcome.   many thanks
    • Thanks for the revision.   The other odd thing is that the recorded delivery letter I sent to the alleged recipient has never been signed for -  the tracking simply states 'we've got your item' although it was sent 1st class on Wed 22nd - it's now the 28th.  So I can only conclude that it was refused 
    • Thank you for all your help and advice, I do appreciate it.   I think really I just need to understand why, after going to all the effort of obtaining a warrant, Spark or Marston's wouldn't do a quick check on the electoral register to see who lives here.  If not there seems the potential for them to be breaking into homes without the correct information all the time.  If there were a debt from another previous tenant that I am unaware of then using that logic they could obtain another warrant and enter again could they not?   This has left me very upset and shaken and unfortunately echoes the same feelings as being burgled a few years ago.  I really hate the thought of someone I don't know having been in my home when I'm not here.   I'll just follow the complaint procedures with the energy companies and see where I get to and try not to shout at Spark when I open the accounts to clear the balance.  The balance I am talking about clearing is mine as Spark tell me they've been supplying the property since November, not either of my preferred suppliers so I have no choice but to give them money.  I really don't feel like giving them anything under the circumstances but I'm certainly not going to do anything to make the situation worse!

Thank you DX100 for your reply and for tidying up my initial post.

 

I thought it was the same procedure but just wanted to check.

 

I did in fact write complaint letters to the PDL's  I was stupid enough to get involved with but never had anything back from them at all!!!

 

The only response I did get from one of them recently was MYJAR who sent me a letter saying that they were selling my debt on (shock, never seem to get them) and then I got another letter saying that because I had raised a complaint they had changed their minds and were not assigning it.  No doubt over the course of time all these other companies will start chasing and of course I will start a new thread for each.

 

Thank you for your help though, I will set the CCA and CPR sorted and sent off Monday.  I will AOS in a bit.

 

Many thanks

your IRL complaint and the court claim are 2 sep things.

one is against the original creditors.

the other is against lantern.

 

the former is not a defence for the latter

ok dx100uk I see what your saying.

 

Seeing as they have sent the CCA, doesnt really leave me anything as a defence :(

 

I have read though that irresponsible lending can be classed as unfair relationship and unfair relationship can be used as a defence.

 

Andy, sorry I get your comment now.  Took a while for the penny to drop!

GGGrr…….. ring tomorrow and find out what is going on....

IF they have upheld your complaint then there is no loan for MMF [lantern] to litigate against.
