    • Couple of things to point out. Council won't be interested in dog's poo in the caravan as it is private property.  At best the h&s department would take a statement and pictures and if it happened again they would act.   As the devil's advocate I would ask: 1. If you were so distressed to ask £4k compensation as suggested,  why did you stay for the full length of the holiday? Is it because your complaint was addressed and caravan cleaned? 2. Bed bugs? Where are the evidence? Couldn't it be another insect's bite? Most of the world population occasionally wakes up to a sore bite from unknown insects.  This can happen anywhere,  even in your house. Hands up if you have never experienced a mosquito bite in your house. 3. Manager took ownership of the problem immediately and fixed the faults. What else could he do? Move you from a caravan site to a 5 star presidential suite? Did you ask for this in writing there and then or you accepted the fix? 4. They offered £500 compensation. That's more than a quarter of the cost of the holiday. I don't think a judge would find that unreasonable.  5. Unfortunately the law doesn't act on ifs, so if something doesn't happen you won't get much interest. IF your boy had eaten the poo, the claim could have escalated by a large margin, but you, as a responsible parent, prevented this and nothing happened to your boy who went on to have a jolly good time. So unfortunately you can't claim for something that didn't happen.  To better understand this, think about a window cleaner leaving his ladder resting on a wall. IF the wind blows it on my car i could claim damage, but not before it happens.   So, my approach would be more pragmatic, by all means ask for more and see what happens, but £500 it's already a good offer in my opinion.    For future reference, whenever i go to holiday parks, caravan sites etc., first thing I do is to clean the lot. It takes an hour or so, but then i'm sure that i won't get any problems from hidden bacteria or other nasty surprises.  I know it shouldn't be this way, but it is. Us, the consumer,  have pushed for cheaper and cheaper prices and this is the result. We need to adapt unfortunately or we would be in court every day. Then there would be no time for holidays.
    • Hi, Last payments were around 2009. The last time any sort of letter showed up was about 3 years ago to my knowledge but only received by me a year after it was written as hung onto by my sister.    I haven't managed to open a bank account yet but made progress in what they required so will try this week.    Thanks for responding. At the time maybe I should have gone bankrupt in hindsight but before I left it pretty much all stopped after asking for the SAR' s. I had settled what I could prior to that.  Then after a big gap I started to get random debt agencies picking up on a few, irrespective of saying there were outstanding SAR requests they came and went and I did inform them where I was living overseas which is why Amex went for the RMA and then suddenly stopped.    You are of course right about running away. Seriously the whole thing gave me real depression which is something I only thought happened to other people. It has taken me all this time to get back to a place where I think I can take a deep breath and deal with it both for my sake and my mum.    I will keep a log. What happens might prove relevant to others and I can't see anyone else has kept one although a lot of people seem to have similar stories.    Thanks again

robbersway letter re old santander OD debt - shall i Start repayments after 4+ years of no contact?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

In 2015 I got myself into a pickle, I had an overdraft that just kept building up until it reached £1500.

I couldn't afford to pay it, I was  a student at the time and spent the next few years in and out of work.

So here I am in 2019 wanting to clear some of this stuff up.

 

I'm not sure exactly when I defaulted but I hadn't responded to notices from the DCA's.

However I've received a letter last week from Robison Way saying that they're deciding whether to send someone to the house and I wanted to save them the hassle by paying a monthly repayment. 

 

I'm just confused as how to start and if it's going to open a can of worms? I

don't believe I have a CCJ as my Experian/Callcredit (noddle) shows no debts but I'm going to check experian this week.

 

By me making payments will this avoid any CCJ action in the future?

 

Thanks for reading.

Hi there,

 

I meant I wouldn't want it to escalate to possibly getting a CCJ and I'm wondering if it's even worth responding or paying repayments just to avoid any hassle.

 

As mentioned all my credit reports are clear just waiting on Equifax. 

 

Thanks.

Hey,

 

Received a letter from Robison Way on the 14/08 for collection of Santander bank which is now £1500.

No record on any report but guessing it's on Equifax being the one I've not checked.

 

The letter says they need to contact me to discuss how to work out to find an affordable payment plan and that the account is now with the reconnection team who will begin to review my case to determine if a visit may help reconnect with them (I liked their use of a mild threat with 'reconnecting us')

-

Nothing would have been paid/written by me for at least 4 years and if it is a default it may even be older than 2015.

 

Thanks again

I've now moved 4 times since the original debt, never updated Santander but always updated the Electoral Register.

If you don't update you're address in writing, each time you move you are playing Backdoor CCJ Roulette. I wouldn't worry about some idiot from a DCA knocking at your door, but I would write with my current address, immediately , today.

Thank you.

I updated the electoral roll as soon as I moved to my current address.

And the DCA have been sending the letters here, so by writing my current address who would I be sending this too?

Whoever is sending you letters, Robinson way. There should be an address on there. Use free proof of posting available from the Post Office, make sure you keep the receipt.

 

Just need to put, your account number and name, and ' I have now changed address to xxy etc'

 

Do not under any circumstances call or email them.

can we check who robbersway state is their client please??

if its hoist then you need to write as the debt has been sold to a DCA backdoor CCJ dangers here

as you should with any other debts outstanding that you paid or last used within the last 7 yrs say.

 

just because you are on the electoral roll doesn't prevent legal action to an old address if the debts been sold on

its how DCA's get 99% of CCJ, 1st you'll know is the court bailiff at your door or refusal for credit

Thank you for the help.

 

I admit this is where I get a little confused, so even though they have my new address I still send them it as 'proof'

is there anything I need incase it comes back in future or is proof of postage usually enough?

 

Does this usually give them more reason to hassle you?

 

And I'm guessing because I've not acknowledged anything aside from my new address nothing has changed?

 

 It says 'HFUKH2HL' which I'm reading is Hoist. I'll get letters sent out.

 

Thank thanks once again.

Crazy as it sounds, a judge would see your lack of communication as evidence of you trying to avoid your debts therefore you would have no grounds to set aside any backdoor CCJ.  

 

That's why you need to keep them informed

nothing to be confused about

they don't have your new address

they've sent a phishing letter to see if you'll respond

if you don't they'll issue a letter of claim to the last address you let the original creditor know about

them 30 days later will raise a court claim and win by default.

I'd agree, this is why I wanted to start to pay at least something to keep them from going there.

 

So it's then worth me updating my new address regardless?

But wouldn't they then send a court claim so wouldn't it be best to offer something to pay, or isn't that how they work?

 

So what would be my best move here?

 

Thank you once again

your best move here is to get reading up on CAG 

no don't start payments no .. you'll reset the sb date when p'haps nothing is owed at all or nothing they'd successfully litigate over.

 

bank OD debts are notoriously difficult to secure a CCJ on if defended properly as they in most cases generally consist of penalty charges for breaking some limit or other rule and the associated interest these attract, and the authorities are down on record as stating such charges are unlawful etc etc.

 

the debt buyer [hoistuk] paid about 10p=£1 for the debt bit will ofcourse chase the whole sum hoping to find a mug that pays!!

or as in your case send 1 letter to the current cra file address then be smiling when they don't get a response as they know they'll get a default backdoor CCJ for that full amount [tidy profit here -even bigger smile] because no human ever checks anything its all automictic.

 

some 750'000 CCJ's are issued every year.. 85% are successful because they are backdoor.

 

paying a dca does not stop them doing court, 

 

as this debt is not showing i'm wondering if your dates could be slightly wrong and in fact the OD was defaulted more than 6yrs ago so would now not show on your file anyway?

Thank you.

I'm still awaiting access to Equifax, the other 2 CRA are clear then I'll be able to see some dates hopefully.

I

've been frantically reading the forum this morning and finding it all very interesting, and the amount of profit these guys make must be crazy. £1 for my debts? Dear Lord.

 

I'm sure it wouldn't have been over 6 years years yet.

 

I'll continue my reading and wait for my Equifax report.

 

But in the mean time you're saying I shouldn't make a move yet or send anything?

Ok, thanks. So send that letter mentioned above about my new address. And just having proof of postage is enough to 'hopefully' defend somewhat against any backdoor CCJ, as you put it?

 

From your experience do you usually find updating the DCA's makes them rub their hands together or do they by now know that this is done to stop them from the backdoor tactics?

 

*Equifax need to verify me before I access my files.

you cant defend against a backdoor ccj..you don't know about it happening 

think about it......

 

which would you prefer...one you cant defend against

or one that MIGHT happen on a debt they will probably fail to win on....IF IF IF they ever did issue a claim....

 

don't get your logic….

My logic was that if they decided to go for a 'backdoor CCJ' I'd have had proof I sent them a change of address. Which is what I was asking, is that receipt of postage enough if I later found out 2 months down the line by looking on Experian I had a CCJ but I did in fact inform them of an address change.

 

I'm getting the letter sorted now.

 

I'm guessing they're sending letters to the new address because it's the only way they'll make some money if I decided to pay (hopefully for them) but sneakily sending letters to the old address as a failsafe for a CCJ..

 

Cheers

they cant go for a backdoor ccj once they have your new address details...

pop is good enough, you don't have to prove you sent it but yes that's what we recommend...

Thank you once again! I'll get this done ASAP.

 

One last thing, you said it's better to be in this position when you can defend yourself. After they receive this from me shall I expect to get an onslaught of communication as I'm guessing they'll feel this is me acknowledging them somewhat?

no you are simply informing them [and the others id you need too]

of an address change.

 

they and any other debt/dca would now have to abide by the PAP rules

and send you a letter of claim giving 30 days.

that they might be thinking about a court claim.

you ignore everything else until/unless you get a PAP LOC

 

where as before you'd get nothing

Brilliant, thanks. Is it ever worth saving time in the event they did want to send a claim through by asking the original creditor for the SAR? Rather than doing it within the 30 days or am I jumping the gun?
