    • This article in the Indy has some interesting views on how Brexit has affected the Uk's response to Covid.   https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/coronavirus-lockdown-government-death-toll-boris-johnson-a9551516.html
    • 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.

Erudio/Drydens Claimform - old SLC Student loans - ignored everything to date

Recommended Posts

I am really stressing. 

 

I had 4 loans (94.95,96,97) I was deferring fine until about 2014 when Erudio took over then It all messed up with deferring

 

then started ignoring everything they sent  (I know this was stupid)

 

Now I have received a letter in the post from Drydens claiming nearly 10k

(so interest has nearly doubled what I owe)

 

 I still don't earn anywhere near the threshold. 

It isn't 6 years since I last acknowledged so I can't statute bar. 

 

I'm sorry if this isn't very clear.

So when did you actually last defer ?

 

if you don't know, then send SLC a subject access request for all of the information they hold on you.

 

There are many other threads in this legal section of CAG involving Drydens/Erudio. Have a read of them.

 

There does appear to have been a problem in 2014 with the deferral process. Did you contact SLC or Erudio or both in 2014 ?


We could do with some help from you.

No it's a claim from Northampton County court. 

 

I left my address for student loans as my mums that's where this claim form went

however I am also getting stuff from Erudio to my home address. 

Regarding the same loans.

I don't think I have a leg to stand on as I ignored all their correspondence though?

 

Last deferred that I definitely know was successful was 2013. 

 

No I have never contacted them

a combination of fear and confusion. 

 

I'll take a look through other threads see if I can find anything about anyone in same boat as me

- I'm feeling rather alone at the moment.

I found this post from May 2014 that I put on another forum 

I'm in a total panic regarding this now,

 

I sent my app for deferment back weeks ago - got a reply this week saying i hadn't signed the form but they haven't enclosed what I sent just sent a new form.

 

I would have sent the stuff referenced above early/mid April 2014

 

Of course, I don't remember if I sorted that out. 

I know the last time I successfully deferred would have been early 2013

Oh I thought because I tried to defer in 2014, that was the date for statute barring so assumed 2020

"I have tried to answer as best I can.  Does this  CCA thing still apply with student loans?"

 

yes it does, for these older pre 1998 loans. So get a CCA request sent off to Erudio.

 
And send a CPR 31.14 letter to Drydens
 
Drydens are issuing loads of these claims at the moment, so you have a chance to defend, if you follow the process required.

We could do with some help from you.

you dont use the paper claimform.......

 

pop up on the MCOL website detailed on the claimform.
.
 register as an individual
 note the long gateway number given
 then log in
.
 select respond to a claim and select the start AOS box.
.
 then using the details required from the claimform
.
 defend all
 leave jurisdiction unticked.
 click thru to the end
 confirm and exit MCOL.
.
 get a CCA Request running to the claimant
https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/332502-cca-request-consumer-credit-act-1974-updated-january-2015/
 leave the £1PO blank and uncrossed
.
 get a CPR 31:14 request running to the solicitors [if one is not listed send to the claimant]
https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/332546-legal-cpr-3114-request-request-for-information-when-a-claim-has-been-issued/
.
type your name ONLY

no need to sign anything
.
you DO NOT await the return of paperwork.
you MUST file a defence regardless by day 33 from the date on the claimform [1 in the count]
 

as the debt is statute barred

 

there is no harm filing our sb defence as well.

 

The following defence is all you need if it is SB

 1 The Claimant's claim was issued on (insert date).

 2 The Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of section 5 of the limitation act 1980. 
.
If, which is denied, the claimant contends that the Defendant is in breach of the alleged contract, in excess of 6 years have elapsed since the date on which any cause of action for breach accrued for the benefit of the Claimant.
.
 3 The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £[insert figure from their POC]  or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.
..
..ends..

I have done the MCOL bit and will get on to the rest right away. 

There is a slight spanner in the works. 

 

I have definitely made no contact with Erudio since I tried to defer in 2014

but I just found some stuff I have (statements, payment demands) and that came to my current address (which I only moved to in Dec 2015) so how did they get this,

 

I am 99.999% sure dates I have quoted above are correct and plus I never changed my address with student loans because I move so much so think be unlikely I would have informed Erudio. 

 

Should I do a SAR and if so who to?

Sorry a couple of questions.

 

1.  I was in such a panic to do the AOS I missed the post about filing an SB defence

I can obviously still do that I know but can you only file 1 defence or can you add to it up to the deadline?

 

2 What am I looking for in the papers I have requested from Erudio & Drydens?

No need 

sb defence is absolute.

Sorry to come back with stupid questions, I found this post about filing a SB defence.  Is this suitable for me to use ?

 

 1 The Claimant's claim was issued on (insert date).

 2 The Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of section 5 of the limitation act 1980. 

If, which is denied, the claimant contends that the Defendant is in breach of the alleged contract, in excess of 6 years have elapsed since the date on which any cause of action for breach accrued for the benefit of the Claimant.

 3 The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £[insert figure from their POC]  or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.
