for whatever reason..you has a dispute and were forced to leave the college.

it's not for you to tell us nor them what the dispute that led to this was about - a dispute exists with their client - that is none of their business , they STA/Hads are mere goffers for the college their client.

 

I will also assume , and I 100% bet, the college has no idea this current round of threat-o-grams is going on.

you will simply be a single line in a debt portfolio spreadsheet the college has forwarded to them under a deal to try and gain back old outstanding fees.

 

don't lose sight of the college will be the people that take you to court, and their actions and those of the relevant staff etc will be bought into play if they do, be them right or wrong.

 

I seriously doubt a college be them right or wrong will ever want that accountability to happen.

 

court in this instance will be no big deal, the dentist is scarier!!

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Thank you for your prompt reply! I'm not overly stressed about it, as you say and I know I have a strong case. 

 

When you put it like you have with regards to the college having to come out and other people - it seems more of a headache for the college to do that! 

 

I shall be back with the next round of updates should it come DX! You've been great.

DX - just had a thought - is it worth emailing the college about the policy they are quoting in their letter?

Or would you advice to leave it?

If they do not send something, then that is in my favour (should it come to it) and if they do send something - I feel I'll be OK to distinguish it from myself. 

 

Also - having read the letter from hadfield carefully, their client is indeed STA, who cant do anything anyway.

no don't get confused by words..

their client is the college

that fact they that are acting on behalf of STA is meaningless

as is STA's letters in the 1st place. powerless DCA's as are all DCA's on ANY debt.

 

await to see if you do get a letter of claim from had's for their client the college

then we'll deal.

 

I would suspect, as with all these here you'll read, the client never knows what is acyually going on until they findout they have raised a court claim they knew nothing about!.

 

most uni/college admin depts. are pretty inept and clueless and at any sniff of a valid documented dispute usually drop any court claims once confronted with the true facts.

Hi just thought I'd update this. In these hard times one would think that the so called debt collectors would take a break! But nope, still trying to extort money from people. I've had the usual barrage of calls, number is blocked so just getting voice messages.

 

I received a letter last month, it is a standard letter from the others I received, interesting that they have reverted backwards from sending one from their solicitors and saying they will proceed with legal action if I don't get back to them - I guess not! 

 

Not really worried or fussed about this anymore tbh. Just keeping this updated for anyone else in a similar situation. Hopefully when they go bust or get bored of calling me, I will have a closing post on this!

 

Stay safe everyone!

Hi,

 

This is a follow on from - STA International -chasing uni course fees debt - Page 2 - Students - Consumer Action Group - I am not sure how to post in the thread or who to contact. 

 

I'm a little stressed right now, but have received a letter from STA which is "the Pre-Action Protocol under the Civil Procedure Rules and the Practice Direction on Pre-Action Conduct). Its basically saying that I can either pay the debt, challenge it or if I don't do anything, they may refer it for court action. 

 

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the reply.

 

the reply form is exactly the same as in the thread.

 

I tick BOX D and just write out what has been the gist of this thread?

Is it better to include more information, including "refund policies" found on the college site which they are using for this?

 

As I am not claiming a refund, my argument is that I paid up until the day I was withdrawn from the course as it is a quassi-contract.

 

Is it worth taking pictures of all letters received from the college and attack them point by point?

 

I have an email from a tutor saying that the tutor withdrew me from the course - do I attach that as well?

 

The indemnity is unfair contract terms based on having to make a disadvantageous declaration. 

 

Can I put this in a document and send it to you? 

 

And do I then send this to STA? 

 

Thanks.

Thanks. I'll do this and post it off asap. 

 

The letter was sent by STA - so am I sending them the form? 

Also - it seems they have changed solicitors and now use Branchers LLP. 

 

Thanks.

No, at the bottom of the letter it says "should you not respond to this letter of claim within 60 days, we will instruct Brachers LLP to issue a claim" 

 

I've been thinking of maybe sending STA a letter against their conduct referencing the FCA Consumer Credit point 7.5.3 etc. But looking at the letters, its all from STA - not from Brachers LLP.

 

If you look at the PDF I uploaded a few posts up, maybe you could shed some light on it?

 

Thanks.

re FCA Consumer Credit point 7.5.3

well to date STA are not aware of any dispute...

 

PAPLOAC is 30 days 

and they can instruct their dog all they like...means nothing..

 

mine doesn't do as it's told either so ....

doesnt mean WILL..

Ok - so I ignore and don't do anything right now? 

 

Just thinking if I inform STA of a dispute and ask them to stop? 

 

Of course - I will follow your advice to the tee. 

 

Thanks again! Much appreciated.

well to be correct sorry you've informed them of the dispute since last year if i remember correctly and again now in your PAP reply...

 

however, dispute...or not 

 

A firm must not ignore or disregard a customer's claim that a debt has been settled or is disputed and must not continue to make demands for payment without providing clear justification and/or evidence as to why the customer's claim is not valid.

 

doesn't mean they shouldn't be chasing nor stop. 

but whatever ...without providing clear justification and/or evidence as to why the customer's claim is not valid.

means is debatable though it would be nice for them to have acknowledged there was one..

p'haps they hope you forgot...

 

just sent the PAP reply.
