    • You will be subject to the same laws notice periods and protections as with any length of contract.    From my own and other’s personal experience I would treat it as an amber warning light to start putting out feelers into what’s out there on the market   A 6 month contract is great for people who might be waiting for a new build , or having renovations done on their own property. For someone like yourself who wants security it might well be time for you to consider moving on.
    • Thank you. You still haven't given as much information. We need more. Please will you tell us who the retailer is – are they in UK or elsewhere? What was the item and what is its value? Did you declare the correct value? Or did the retailer declare the correct value? You say you paid by credit card – not a debit card against your bank account? Please read around all the Hermes threads on this forum. There is lots of good information there. In particular understand your rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
    • I am sorry, but without seeing the contract, and knowing what is on it or what effect it has, it is impossible to say.     
    • A16 BYN is the plates that the car was advertised with, and obviously the plate which I checked the mot history with, I also thought the same that the website maybe hadn't been updated with the most recent mot that the dealer had got done, I asked for the original plate number whilst doing the logging in to my bank account, to pay both the dealer and the shiply transporter. Bearing in mind I had told the dealer around 6pm that I would get the deposit sorted out when I put my son to bed, that gave him every opportunity to send me any pre contract details etc. Just over an hour later (son still wasn't in bed) asked for the address of where the vehicle was to be picked up from as I couldn't accept the quote for the transporter without that information. Less than an hour after that he whatsapped me asking if I still want to buy the car because he's getting enquiries from other interested parties and is telling them that he's sold the car to me (no deposit  paid as yet). I then replied a few min later having finally got my son to sleep.    Anyway between me sorting out the details and where to pick the car up from, log into my banking to pay deposits etc he'd  messaged me the original plate no... which I didn't see until after I'd done all the aformentioned.    I decided to check the history on that plate as like yourself I had been confused about the mileage, low and behold there was the most recent mot containing 5 advisories which were never mentioned to me. Another thing I can't really understand is the expiry date of the mot before that either and I did query all of this with the dealer, only to be told that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues...and that if I had checked the mot history I would have seen them, I explained I had checked the history on the plate in the advert as I had no knowledge of what the original plate numbers were and he told me that the most recent mot was under the plate in the advert. Most certainly the mot certificate he then sent me on whatsapp had the advertised plate on the certificate,  however, it wasn't showing up on the dvla page.    By this stage I was irate with him for several reasons, for not notifying me of the advisories and telling me that he had checked the dvla and the most recent mot was showing up on the advertised plates, I then screenshot the page with the expiry and this car is not mot'd information, and 2 for telling me that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues!    Had he simply said, the car is 18 years old you're going to expect to have some corrosion at some point, I'd have been a bit more tolerant at that stage. Apon checking the history on the original plates, it transpired it passed the last MOT previous to the most recent one on the same day the advertised plates ran out, I still haven't quite fathomed out what is going on regards to this. However the previous mot showed no corrosion issues and as it hadn't failed on that basis, I would get the panel beater sprayer mentioned in an earlier post to have a look at it, and sort the issues out re that, also the main reason I had the car delivered to my dad's address as that's also the area where the panel beaters business is.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

CLI PAP letter of claim - norwegian Credit Card debt


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

reading forum threads previously I received several letters from CLI, but I assumed they were just template letters and could safely ignoring them, including the one where they said they would send someone to visit me (never happened). 

 

I have now received a letter again from them saying that they have been instructed by Lindorff (who again has been assigned from the orginal creditor a bank in Norway) to obtain the payment from me for a credit card that I had.

They further say "this letter is being sent to you in accordance with the Pre-Action Protocol for Debt Claims contained in the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR)."

 

They do have a silly mistake right after that which says Details of Debt (insert detail) 😅

 

they have attached a bunch of documents, copies of a signed debt letter from 2008 and interest calculations, and alot of documents in Norwegian.

I moved to the UK in 2013, and had no control over my debt that I owed over in Norway.

 

I now have 30 days to respond to this, what would be the best course for me, to see if they would even try this in court?

 

A few questions: 

 

As most documents are in Norwegian, would that be good enough for a court as proof?

Can I request a translated document for each part, I mean I understand them  but a UK court would not?

As I understand CLI are just collectors, so would they assign lawyers to get this to court?

The Debt is just around £2600. 

 

I assume statue barred would be the same for a Norwegian debt which is 10 years and they have renewed it over there last time in 2015 by trying to get money at "namsmannen" which is sorta like a small claims court, but basically just at the police.

 

Thanks for any replies!

Ok thanks I will do, as this is not UAE I assume I will just not mention the following then:

 

"Proof that UAE Court Judgement has already been gained upon said debt. - Change to Norwegian Court Judgement?
Proof the UK Pre Action Protocol allows a UK Solicitor to issue a Letter Of Claim and

/or issue court proceedings concerning a UAE debt. The UAE is not a 'member state' . - remove this last sentence?

 

Just a quick update, they today sent the same letter again, but this time I had to sign for it.

sure

they cant really do anything 

only the original bank can

but it makes them feel important.

 

once they have your correct address they'll go quiet I bet.

they are trying for a backdoor CCJ hoping you never reply using an old? uk address

not the one they've gandered from your UK credit file via nefarious means

the fact they've now sent it recorded again too 

it typical of that scenario

 

I will guess like most stuff CLI chase

they are hoping for a knee jerk reaction and people blindly like mugs start paying them

as they think DCA's have magical powers when they don't.

 

a dca is not a bailiff

and have 

ZERO legal powers on ANY debt

let alone one from another country.

Comparison with the UAE doesnt hold, different financial law and legal systems.

You are a UK resident as far as this goes so it is SB. What Norweay does under its own bedclothes is up to it but CLI have no say in that and cant act on anything here.

Foreign statute of limitations can be applied in UK Courts as there is an act of Parliament.

 

If there is a CCJ equivalent from Norway issued in 2015, why are they not seeking to ask a UK Court to apply this? 

We could do with some help from you.

Ok, so I will reply to them shortly , I am going to say the following, any other input would be appreciated.

 

Box D tick "I dispute this debt because I do not have enough information to know if I own this debt."

 

Box I tick

 

I need a copy of :

 

 

I need a copy of..

 

Original signed finance agreement together with the terms and conditions IN ENGLISH
Any notice of change in account terms and conditions that were ever issued since credit approval
Any notice of default or Norwegian equivalent that was issued by the original creditor
All and every statement of the account including how any interest has been calculated.
Proof the UK Pre Action Protocol allows a UK Solicitor to issue a Letter Of Claim and

/or issue court proceedings concerning a Norwegian debt.

 

Any and All other statutes of law, be them UK or otherwise, that the claimant intends to rely upon should they wish to  proceed and issue a uk Court Claim .

 

----------

 

One other thing, they say that the principal debt was calculated in Norwegian Kroner and converted to GBP at the rate of £1 = NOK 10.16.

 

However, I think that's not a good exchange rate.. If I go back to the 28th of October,  I get the following results:

 

Average: 1 GBP = 11.8187 NOK

Lowest: 1 GBP = 11.7725 NOK

Highest: 1 GBP = 11.8648 NOK

 

Is there any way I can dispute the exchange rate?

Forget int rates its admittance

You cant say i dont owe it and say the above

 

As for d

As saying not enough info to know..then getting that info could result you boxing yourself in a corner

About 7 months on,

I have now received a letter from CLI again,

with "bank statements that I requested" apologizing for the delay in these times and that they look forward to be hearing from me.

 

What should my next step be, if any?

All they have included is statements of payments (in Norwegian) and none of the other things I asked for. S

 

hould I wait and see until they chase further and then tell them where the rest is, or should I respond now?

they have wasted a bit of time on something that is pointless for both parties.

 

A bank statement is not proof of debt, even if it shows the account is in the red because the terms of the account and any other associated accounts were not included.

 

Who knows, the Norwegian bank may have agreed a contract with you that says you don't have to pay them unless you feel like it and what proof do CLI have that isn't the case?

 

If you haven't paid a bean since 2013 they cant collect anyway as they will have to use UK law to make a claim

debt is SB and if you haven't serviced the debt in Norway since 2008 they are dead in the water there,

assuming they want to pay for a ferry trip for you in the first place

They have now chased me for an update or else they will consult their lawyers for legal action.🙄

 

I am tempted to respond to them that they still have failed to hand me:

 

"Original signed finance agreement together with the terms and conditions IN ENGLISH
Any notice of change in account terms and conditions that were ever issued since credit approval
Any notice of default or Norwegian equivalent that was issued by the original creditor
Proof the UK Pre Action Protocol allows a UK Solicitor to issue a Letter Of Claim and

/or issue court proceedings concerning a Norwegian debt."

 

Is that a reasonable response? 

 

As for it being Statue Barred in the UK, is this 100% certain when they have secured themselves in Norway against it become statue barred there?

CLI can't raise a court claim, only the owner of the debt can.

That PAP letter was ages ago , they would need to send it again anyway.

 

If you wouldn't have responded to the original PAP, you would have an uncontested CCJ by now.  The likes of CLI know that if they send out 500 PAP letters at least 50% will go to an old address, or not get responded to, giving their client a green light for an uncontested, easy CCJ. That is their business model! There was a whole batch of UAE debts exactly like this about a year ago. To my knowledge not one person who asked for advice on here, and replied to the PAP letter was subject to any further action. I stand to be corrected!

 

As DX says, they are short of funds for their (socially distanced) office party this year, and are sending a few letters out to drum up some cash.

We could do with some help from you.
