Cabot/Mortimer Claimform - old citi/Sav/opus credit card debt

Recommended Posts

 

Hello to all, this is my first post, though I have been reading the forums for a while.  Yesterday I received a claim form from Cabot Financial and now I'm really nervous about how to proceed. After reading through some of the topics/threads yesterday and today I've now filled in your questionnaire below. Thank you. Fi

The Defendant failed to make the minimum payments due & the Agreement was terminated. The Agreement was assigned to the Claimant. THE CLAIMANT THEREFORE CLAIMS 10864.21 2. Costs

 

What is the total value of the claim? £11453.10

 

Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) ? Yes, from Mortimer Clarke in September 2019. I then sent a CCA request to Cabot after reading the CAG forums.

 

Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred? No

 

Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? N/A


Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account?  Credit Card

Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? Never to Cabot (nor to anyone else to my knowledge)

 

Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? Yes sometime in 2010.

 

Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Sums in Arrears”  or " Notice of Arrears "– at least once a year ? No

 

Why did you cease payments?  Originally, as my small business suffered heavy losses during financial crash.

Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? Yes and offered token payments

Hi dx100uk,

 

Thank you for your speedy response.  Received PAPLOC on 18th September but at first I didn't realise it was a Letter of Claim. I sent the CCA request to Cabot on 8th October, using information provided on the CAG forum.

so you didn't reply to the PAPLOC using a reply pack, hence the claimform..

 

what was this credit card? SAV credit/opus bought all manner of cards out and inherited 10'000's of unenforceable debts that people blindly paid simply running the SB date into infinity. 

 

strikes me strange you never thought to question the debt all these years but chose to blindly pay a powerless DCA for almost 10yrs

Thanks for your reply.

I will follow the instructions provided.

 

As for the reply pack I didn't realise that I needed to fill in the boxes they supplied in the PAPLOC,

I did respond to them and requested a CCA from Cabot.

I understand now that I’ve read through the forum so could I have avoided a Court Claim if I’d filled in the information? 

 

The original credit card was with Citi and I made token payments of five pounds to them originally and then reduced the payments to one pound.

 

I never questioned the debt as I was just too frightened to do anything other than pay them something, it was hard to cope with so much financial stress at the time but I’m trying to read as much as I can now.

oh lovely

though it was a citi card

they'll never get a compliant CCA for that.

that why they were taken on by sav credit and latterly Opus

to try and obscure these facts from the system

 

citi signed agreements all hit the shredder years ago.

 

 

should be a walk in the park for you.
