    • dx100uk   do you think it might help if the OP went back to the dealer and argued the point about the dealer having to pay the vehicle recovery costs (in the event of a cancellation and no pre-contract info) by quoting to them the Motor Trade Ombudsman's view on the question from post #25?   I mean, the motor trade ombudsman is not generally well-known for being on the consumer's side, and yet there they are spelling out the OP's argument for her!   This could be backed up by (1) reiterating that the advertised mileage does not agree with the MOT history - at least I think that's the case; I haven't quite got my head round it yet, and (2) pointing out that the "sold for spares" bit is simply untrue.  She could wind up by suggesting that she thinks any ADR or court would find in her favour on all three of these points and ask if he wants to reconsider his position.   See if that shifts the dealer any further.   Assuming he won't move, then either go for ADR (is this binding and who does it?) as a first step or continue with legal claim.   Only contra-indications I see:  (1) I think the distance selling/extended cancellation argument is very unusual with a used car purchase and have no idea if it's likely to be successful.  BUT Advice Direct Scotland and Aberdeen TS seem to think it's possible(?) and so does the Motor Trade Ombudsman - so who knows.   (2) BankFodder did suggest several pages back that if the OP got the purchase price back that might be a result, but that would mean either writing off two sets of transportation fees or arguing separately about them.    
    • Hi. I posted on the facebook group about Hermes queries re: a parcel that Hermes said delivered but i didnt receive. It was a private sale of a mobile phone from a seller in Wales to me in Edinburgh.   The seller has stopped contact with me now so I cant get any help from them. Hermes are saying it was delivered but it wasn't.   I have got all copies of emails to and from the seller and to and from Hermes. A photo of the actual parcel that the seller sent me prior to posting.   There also seems to be a some confusion on the Hermes tracking info about which day it was actually delivered but either way I was in my house both prior and after the delivery.   There was no photo but it stated the driver got a signature. Not true cos it was a covid thing not to get signatures. No calling card to say it was left somewhere else or in a safe place. It just simply wasn't delivered.   I've been told to ask for GPS info in order to trace the delivery or driver. I cant even talk to a human or get a valid address to write to.   I sent an email to the CEO guy and still no reply. I've not reported anything to the police but I'm getting all sorts of contrasting advice to do this and not do that etc that im totally lost now.   If you read this David, please get back to me please. Much appreciated.   This happened in June/july so hope im not too late to still do something about it. It's just took this long to only get to this stage.

    • Noted! Hopefully there won't have to be another time though!     I did respond to the email, I just said that he cannot deduct any costs incurred for collecting / picking up the vehicle and if it heads down the route of ADR which is a total new concept of me having any involvement with, that he would have to pay a refund/the cost of the car and the cost associated with the collection of the vehicle.    Upon further checking the legislation because he gave me no cancellation rights prior to the contract starting he is indeed guilty of an offence, which is the likelihood of what trading standards are dealing with in regards to his local TS contacting him.     
    • hi,     Just asking for some experience or knowledge.     I purchased a puppy on the 30th of august. On numerous occasions I was in contact with breeder and asked if the puppy showed signs of entropion.    I was told no.   On the 26th of August puppy had first jabs. And apparently their vets said none of the litter showed sign of entropion.    On collection of puppy I noticed he was covered in green mucus. The pen had dog muck spread in there so assumed it was just from pups playing and maybe getting it in each others eyes (poor hygeine on breeders part)   Anyways,   Asked breeder to wipe pup and we left       With in 3 hours we realised that the puppy wasn't well. He physically couldn't open his eyes and when we attempted to clean them his eyeballs weren't visible.    We phoned an out of hour vets and contacted the breeders immediately.     The pup was taken to the vets and we were informed he had a severe eye infection which was a result to entropion.    The vet bill came to around 900 after tacking and meds etc. I asked the breeder to cover the costs. They said no because their vets said their was no issues.     The state on this puppy my vets think he's suffered from birth.     And most certainly not 5 minutes before I turned up.      I've filed a small claims for the cost of the vets and the cost of the puppy.      Where do you think ill stand?    What type of evidence will the judge want to see. Thanks

    • 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

Simply say you do not recognise the debt.... nothing more

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?

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.
