    • claim letter sent as an email with signed PDF attached. Now waiting for a response....
    • 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!

ADCB/Moriarty PAP Letter Of Claim - Credit Card Debt

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have seen a number of similar threads on this forum regarding debt in Dubai, but wanted some advise on this particular 'twist'!

 

I lived in Dubai for many years and left in 2009.

I closed all my bank accounts etc before I left,

 

around 2 years after I left (2011),

I received an email from a UK debt company (IDR) saying that I owed Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB) around £600 on an unpaid Credit Card, dating back to 2008

 - the email explained that the amount included interest and other late payment charges.

 

Having read on these threads and others, that the best thing to do was ignore it, that is what i did.

 

Around once per year, I received similar emails regarding the debt, but from different Debt collection companies. Again, I refused to acknowledge any of them.

 

Then about 5 days ago I received a letter to my home, from a company called Moriarty Law which included a Pre-action Protocol (PAP) form.

The letter stated that I owed around £7,000 relating to a Credit Card dating back to 2008, but did not specify how this number was arrived at.

It stated only the exchange rate they had used to convert the outstanding amount from UAE Dirhams to UK pounds sterling.

 

I have a few questions around this.

 

Firstly, I do not recognise this debt, nor have had any communications from ADCB themselves regarding it.

Is it likely that Moriarty Law have 'bought' this debt from ADCB and are now trying to get payback for it?

 

Second, if the debt is genuine and has been built up with interest and charges over the preceding 10 years or so, is it not statute barred if being taken to Court in the UK?(in UAE the limitation is generally 15 years for consumer debt)

 

Thirdly, how should I respond to this letter? I think I have 30 days from receipt of a PAP to respond, but wanted your opinion on this.

 

Finally, has anyone on this forum had a similar experience with Moriarty Law and if so, what has been the outcome?

 

Many thanks.

 

Haggis.

I attach a copy of the PAP Letter received from Moriarty Law.

 

The amount I am being told I owe is £7,611 - but absolutely no detail as to how this has accrued or been calculated.

 

I do need to reply within 30 days and included in the letter is a Standard PAP Reply Form. I was thinking of sending them the Reply Form stating that I do not owe this debt and asking them to provide full evidence so that I may consider it. 

 

What is you opinion?

 

Also, this debt if it is to be believed, is now nearly 10  years old and considering they are preparing a Court case, would it not be Statute Barred under UK law even though the limitation period for consumer debt in UAE is 15 years?

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

I don't have any of the old emails - last one I received was prob more than 1 year ago.

 

I have lived at the same address since returning to UK in 2009. However, I have seen a TRACE on my Credit Reference file about 1 month ago, so assume it was them.

 

 

 I will complete the Reply form answering that I do not recognise this debt - unless you think otherwise?

 

Thanks for your help.

In any case, even if there were funds owed, I doubt whether the value of £7,600+ is legitimate.

Do they not have to show me how this debt has accrued?

 

Also, given that any debt which may exist goes back to 2009, would it not be considered Statute Barred, due to the length of time involved?

 

Your advice is much appreciated DX.

As with any alleged debt, you would ask the Solicitors chasing the debt to provide documentary evidence. Ask for a copy of any original signed finance agreement together with the terms & conditions, which must be in English.  Ask for copies of any notices of change in account terms & conditions that were issued, which must be in English. Also ask for a copy for any notice of default that was issued in English. Also ask for copies of all statements of account in English. And ask for copies of all important documents that their client issued in English, such as registration of any debt with UAE Courts or other authorities.

 

Send a letter by recorded delivery just saying that in order to consider their letter and to obtain legal advice, it will be necessary for them to supply the following documents.  Then list all of the above.

No, Ive never written to Creditor about address in UK because I never knew I had any debt!

 

To my knowledge, I don't believe I have ever received any mail from ADCB.....

this is a very interesting twist as you say in the 'collection' of UAE debts.

smacks of CWD etc are failing badly now its getting publicised what to do rather than running to a certain website and getting sc@mmed by them into a deal.

 

I will suspect this is a new cheap ploy to get rubberstamped backdoor CCJ's on UAE debts where nothing is checked by a human.

moriarty never appear in court anyway ever.

so i will guess that once you reply, this will die.

Unfortunately, they were sent to my old work email address - which I no longer have access to.

 

However, I am quite sure that at least one of these was sent by IDRWW  debt collection company.

 

As I said earlier, I got a letter periodically, probably no more than once per year or maybe per 18 months.

 

Hope this helps.

It’s statue barred after 10 year (not 15year as first thought)  I know this as I have just been through this with CWD, for a 6 year old debt

 

also, they need to provide Evidence so don’t admit to anything - looks like they are looking for you to admit it if they contact you without any evidence

Thanks SP.

 

I will reply to the PAP stating I don't believe I owe this debt and ask them to provide all the evidence.

 

However, reading the note again, it specifies that I defaulted on 24/7/10 - which means that the debt, if there is one, is currently only 9 years old, so SB letter may not work yet.

 

That said, if ADCB are looking to take the case through UK Court, surely the Limitation Period is as per Limitation Act 1980, which is 6 Years and not the 10 years applicable under UAE Law.

 

Finally, the date is very spurious

- I left UAE in December 2009, so if I did default in any way on any Credit Card payment, it would have been long before 24/7/10!

No there is UK legislation regarding foreign limitations periods applying.

Not sure.

 

Perhaps Moriarty Law have 'bought' the debt from them...? However, as far as I am concerned, I did not have any debt with ADCB, so I don't know what it is they think they have bought!!

Debt will be owned by the UAE Bank. Don't think they sell debt on. But there might be a commercial arrangement, where there is a share of the proceeds of any debt collection.

 

That is a question you could ask moriarty law, if they issued a Court claim form. Ask them to disclose, what financial arrangement they have with the UAE creditors. I.e. Do they have any financial agreement to share from the proceeds of debt collection following any Court judgement. 

 

There was a Solicitors taking copyright claims to Court and they failed to disclose to the Court that they were going to share the proceeds, if they won judgement. This led to the Solicitors being struck off and they later went bankrupt.  Solicitors issuing Court claims where they will share from any debt collected following Court judgement have to disclose this when they issue the claims. Failing to do so, is apparently a breach of the rules.
