    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble
    • Late to this, sorry - my wife claims contributory ESA and got her P60 about two weeks ago. Now I know she's overpaid on her tax and I'm just waiting for HMRC (the department I currently work for) to figure it out. They owe her about £150.

Help I am about to get a default

Recommended Posts

Dear Sirs

 

I have been rather unwell over the latter part of the year as such I had missed a couple of letters written to me by H & M stating that they would transfer my debt to a company called Avato. In actual fact I am yet to see such a letter. I did not realise when I purchased some goods I had five do using credit. 
 

I have proof of being unwell if required. 
 

The company called Avato had written to me only by text and it would not give me info on what’s it was about unless I gave my DOB or address. I was a bit worried to this but did so recently and found out it was an old H & M debt. 
 

I am happy to pay my £37 debut which I am told is around £57 now subject to me not receiving a default on my credit report. Currently there is no default. Nor does it show that I have a debt with Avato or H & M. 
 

please help as I am very worried. 
 

kind regards 

Shez

Thank you for your kind response dx100uk.

 

I am about to get a mortgage in a couple of months and do not want to get a default registered on my account.

Does this mean if I pay Avato they have no right to register a default and if so, will H & M register a default? 

 

thankS again for your help

a DCA has no power whatsoever to register anything .

 

only the original creditor can do that

they must issue a default notice first to you giving you 14 days to rectify the issue.

 

they also cannot charge you any additional penalty fees for late/missed payment.

 

I don't believe H&M accounts show on credit files anyway.?

 

looking at their website, there is no indication of such, though I notice they do charge letter fees so don't be paying those either as they are an unlawful penalty

Thank you I am most grateful to you for your assistance. I have been charged an additional fee. I am happy to pay it all as long as they stop hassling me as it’s quite stressful and I just wanted to settle it.They contact me only texts which I found quite strange. 

H & M said they would register a default but have not done so. 

Thanks again for putting my mind at rest. 
 

around 2015 I had a similar issue and both the company and the creditor who bought the debt registered a default. It’s a shame as I had Begum off work for a few months due to ill health and missed the two letters they write. 
 

Thanks again

paying additional fees to anyone doesn't stop their harassment and they are unlawful.

mark the texts as spam Forward their silly text messages to 7726 (spam on your phones keypad).

 

please scan up the  mentioning their threat to report a default to PDF

read upload. 

 

as for the other debt, it can be registered twice, but it doesn't have double the effect. 

a creditor does not buy a debt, a debt buyer (A DCA) does. they are not a creditor.
