A pensioner was forced to wage a court battle for his £193,000 inheritance after it was transferred to another bank customer by mistake.
I agree with dx100uk that if you are unsure this amount is correct to call them to them to clarify the Gesture of Goodwill offer. (do not mention to them the amount your claim was for as the are already aware of this so don't remind them)
dx100k has already pointed this out in there post that you would need to file a Notice of Discontinuance with the court is you agree to this settlement offer.
Dx100uk suggested calling them and confirm this.
Is that what you would suggest too?
I was originally planning to write back to them to provide my bank details and to tell them I will settle.
and what do I do about the court hearing fee?
Do I just ring and pay by debit card now?
Deadline is 13/12, I am just a bit worried that the if I settle the settlement wouldn’t have been completed by 13th.
are they offering to set this aside by a mutual consent by a tomlin order free of charged to you?
or have they just sent you an N244 to fill in which will cost you £255 to file at court with no guarantee of success??
they have admitted that they wrongly took court action against you
IMHO I would not be agreeing to just £150 but threaten to take this back to court, issuing the N244 yourself and sue them for the £255 fee AND for the return of every payment you have ever made against the CCJ AND interest at 8% PA. and damage to you credit reputation, typically this is £1000 per entry and any compensation for refused credit , higher int rates on credit attained since...
pers I think it might be worthy for you to spend sometime
