    • doesn't say will anything. read it properly and carefully.   only the owner of a debt can get one of the many fake/tame paperwork only solicitors to issue any proceedings and they would have to abide by the courts pre action protocol of 30  days letter first!   as it's owner...i can try and instruct my dog to sit, if it does is a totally different matter. if my neighbour, who doesn't own my dog, tries it, it would ignore them.   the bottom line is there is nothing anyone can do to you. gyms don't do court gym debts don't appear on credit files.   any DCA they might get to write to you ARE NOT BAILIFFS any a DCA has ZERO legal powers on any debt, no matter what it's type.   dx

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi Both,

I have time today & tomorrow until the court closes to hand in my witness statement to them.

I will email Lowell just as they have done me & hand documents into the court tomorrow.

I have started the WS as can be seen.

I have also at home printed off Headed Exhibit pages ready to go.

I would appreciate where & what you would advise for me to pad out my WS & with what exhibits. 

I really dont expect you to do it for me but just a nudge in the right direction & with what & just a little more help as to what i need to convince the judge.

 

Also what will the judge ask me i was nervous when in Mediation when the lady basically said you owe the money!!!!

 

I have done the below so far today:

 

4. On *********, I received a claim form from the County Court Business Centre, Northampton, for the amount of £*******. The claimant contends that the claim is for the sum of £******* in respect of monies owing under an alleged agreement with the account no *********************** pursuant to The Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA). Contained within the claimants particulars the claimant states that the account was subject to assignment from Vanquis to Lowell on ********** with notice given. I WILL COPY CLAIM FORM........ CALL IT  EXH 1 

 

5. I made a formal written request to the Claimant for them to provide me with a copy of my Consumer Credit Agreement as entitled to do so under sections 78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.I WILL COPY MY CPR31.14 REQUEST............. CALL IT  EXH 2 

 

6. The Claimant sent a response which enclosed a statement, default notice, notice of assignment from Vanquis to Lowell & a reconstituted copy of an agreement

I WILL COPY THE ABOVE DOCUMENTS........CALL IT EXH 3

I'll be honest and say then i don't know what else to add.

They have sent the court & myself a 50 page WS.

How should i fluff out my witness statement with what Exhibits? 

How do i get the Judge in any other way apart from the above to see they have been non compliant & in default to my section 78 request?

 

I only have till court closes tomorrow to hand in my WS

Thankyou very much i will be around all day it would be appreciated

Below is another attempt :

 

 

IN THE COUNTY COURT AT ***************                 CLAIM NO:**********

 

 

BETWEEN:

 

LOWELL PORTFOLIO I LTD CLAIMANT

 

and

 

MRS *********************** DEFENDANT

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

WITNESS STATEMENT OF ******************

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I, ******************************************* WILL SAY as follows:

 

I make this Witness Statement in support of my defence in the claim.

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

1. It is my understanding that the claimant is an Assignee, a buyer of defunct disputed or bad debts, which are bought on mass portfolios at a much reduced cost to the amount claimed 10p to 15p in the £1 and to which the original creditors have already written off as a capital loss and claimed against taxable income. Lowell Portfolio I Ltd issue claims to circumvent and claim the full amount of debt to maximise profit.

 

2. As an assignee or creditor as defined in section 189 of the CCA this applies to this new requirement on assignment of rights. This means that when an assignee purchases debts (or otherwise acquires rights under a credit agreement) it also acquires certain obligations to the borrower including the duty to comply with CCA requirements (such as the rules on statements and notices and other post-contractual information). The assignee becomes the creditor under the agreement. This ensures that essential consumer protections under the CCA cannot be circumvented by assigning the debt to a third party.

 

BACKGROUND

3. The Claim relates to an alleged Credit Card Agreement between the defendant and Vanquis Bank

 

4. Whilst it is accepted that the defendant has in the past had financial dealings with Vanquis, the defendant is unaware of what alleged debt the claimant refers, and the defendant has not entered into any contract with the Claimant.

 

5.The defendant made a formal written request to the Claimant for them to provide me with a copy of my Consumer Credit Agreement as entitled to do so under sections 78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 on the 27th August 2019 along with the standard fee of £1.00 postal order to which the defendant received a reply dated 6th September 2019 putting their account on hold whilst they tried to gather the information.

 

6.The defendant received a reply dated 24th October 2019 with no CCA attached other than the documents which enclosed a statement, default notice, notice of assignment from Vanquis to Lowell & a reconstituted copy of an agreement which the claimants have already provided in their witness statement dated 3rd August 2020.

 

7.On 15th January 2020, I received a claim form from the County Court Business Centre, Northampton, for the amount of £******. The claimant contends that the claim is for the sum of £********* in respect of monies owing under an alleged agreement with the account no ******************* pursuant to The Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA). Contained within the claimants particulars the claimant states that the account was subject to assignment from Vanquis to Lowell on 24 June 2015 with notice given.

 

CONCLUSION

8.To date no valid full true copy of the executed credit agreement or the terms and conditions have been disclosed .the claimant has no grounds on which to enforce this alleged debt.

 

9.The claimant disclosed various screenshots taken from the originators software of the application and also confirms on their covering letter the relative legislation The Electronic Communications Act 2000 with regards to wet signatures and the requirement of a tick box to validate the application. The screenshots are devoid of any tick box or any authenticity of IP address conformation check.

 

10.Therefore the claimant remains in default of my section 78 request and pursuant to section 78 6a of the CCA1974 the claimant is not entitled, while the default continues, to enforce the agreement.

 

11.For the above reasons the claim bought by the claimant is without merit and an abuse of the court process. It would be far more gracious and forthright for the claimant to admit that they do not have possession of the correct valid paperwork and this is an attempt to mislead and convince the court that the claimant can disclose the legal valid documents on which its claim relies on. It is therefore requested that the Claimants Claim is struck out pursuant to the above.

 

STATEMENT OF TRUTH

 

I, ************** the defendant, believe the facts stated in this witness statement are true. I understand that proceedings for contempt of Court may be brought against anyone who makes, or causes to be made, a false statement in a document verified by a statement of truth without an honest belief in its truth.

Thanks i have read the above.

I just don't want to say the wrong thing on the call !!!!!!

I guess only speak when spoken to.

I just wondered if i would be asked questions about the debt?

If i think i owe the money?

How did the debt accrue?

Because after all I am trying to get it quashed on a technicality of which iam not an expert!!!!!

Well it clearly states in your statement you cant recall the alleged debt and therefore put the claimant to strict roof to disclose a valid compliant copy of the agreement.....not some botched up screen shots created on any software to show they have a valid copy of the agreement.They know its not valid..they confirm it in their statement..so why would they expect a judge to agree and order it.

 

Your unsure whether you owe the money...so you cant recall how the alleged debt possibly accrued....as with everything in life you cant simply accept heresay evidence without proof.They can have all the printouts statements letters in the world ...but the CCA1974 is quite clear on what is required to be able to enforce an agreement...the true copy of the agreement and one thats compliant.

 

So with the above in mind its simply impossible to answer those questions.

 

CPR 16.5.4  is quite clear...any claimant wishing to make a money claim must provide proof by way of a valid agreement.

 

(4) Where the claim includes a money claim, a defendant shall be taken to require that any allegation relating to the amount of money claimed be proved unless he expressly admits the allegation.

We could do with some help from you.

let them sweat ......don't play your bonus cards till you need too.

 

they do all this to intimidate the defendant and make them fold. or to make you think they are superhumans and mates in court and the judge won't believe a word you say.

 

the number of claim lowells have lost or discontinued in the last 12mts is 100 fold on previous years.

 

the judges are fast becoming very aware of these speculative claims and 9/10 rule against them.
