    • 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.   Signed: …………………………………………… Print Name: ************* Dated: 4th August 2020

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

LLoyds 10 year old CCj now being chased by Cabot

Recommended Posts

I have an old CCJ against me for £10k original creditor LLoyds

I never heard anything off them after the forthwith CCj was issued in 2009,

 

Late last year I got a letter to my home address from Cabot I knew what it was about, but thought they might not know about the CCJ so I sent statute barred letters and eventually got a reply with all of the CCJ info on it

 

I know it will be difficult for them to take it back to court,

The CCJ was raised  at my old home address and I still rent the property out and so have always received mail from it and it is also linked to my new address both of which have been on the CRA sites and electoral roll as lniked adresses so I have always been available.

 

Should I simply ignore the reply to the statute barred letter (there are no threats about going back to court on it) if not ignore I am unsure of how to reply 

Any assistance very much appreciated

I have a feeling that the statute barred rule doesn't apply to CCJs that have already been issued but if the creditor has taken no steps to enforce the CCJ for a long time they need the permission of the court to take enforcement action.

 

So it is more than 10 years since the creditor last made contact with you about the CCJ/debt?

 

Hopefully one of the experts who knows more about it than me will be along soon.

You are quite right that statute barred does not apply And it will be difficult for them to go back to court I jsut dont know whether to ignore or if not how to reply

Statute Barred does not apply with a CCJ. You will always owe it. However, after 6 years the debtor has to go back to court in order to chase it. Which almost never happens. Therefore ignore!

CrabPot would have to justify why they hadn't enforced against it and that becomes more difficult after 6 years, after 10 the iourt would have a very jaundiced view of the attempt.

It came off my credit file nearly 4 years ago so I've no worries there,I will ignore and take it as it comes these things dont stress me out any more. 

Just a thought doesnt the original creditor on the CCJ  have t be the one to try to enforce and Crapbots are not the original creditor

 

Thanks again peeps

I bet it works in a lot of cases. They probably send a 1000 letters per week. £200 on stamps and envelopes! if only 5 people pay up it makes it all worthwhile. Fortunately you found CAG and are now informed.

Just a thought, I am now 65 and diagnosed with prostrate cancer -(no need to worry  very early very treatable).

thinking of my mortality and dying I wonder if it might crop up after my death (hopefully in many years to come)

Can they make a claim on my estate (mainly substantial insurenace poilicies), my wife and 10 YO daughter wouldnt be able to sort it out like me

Should I offer them £10 as full and final and to stop writing letters to me or tell them I am not going to pay fullstop.

 

At this time I am ignoring as there is no threat that  they are trying to come after me and with it now being 11years since ccj issued very unlikley they can come at me in any meaningful way

not sure why you are thinking any consumer debt is payable from an estate... CCJ or not upon debt...99% die with you.

I hope the situation isn't going to arise any time soon!

 

When someone dies, their debts become a liability on their estate. The executor of the estate, or the administrator if no Will has been left, is responsible for paying any outstanding debts from the estate. If you owe a debt when you die your death does not extinguish the debt. It is still a debt of your estate. (The reverse is also true, if someone owes you money when you die they are still required to pay it to your Estate).

 

But Cabot/Lloyds have no more right to enforce the CCJ against your Estate after your death than they did before you died. They would still have to go to court and get permission to enforce it and all the advice given so far on this thread is that they would find that very hard to do. So they could not easily get the money from your Estate.

 

What I don't know though is where this would leave the Executors. In principle Executors are required to pay all debts of the estate before distributing what remains to beneficiaries. If they don't a creditor could proceed against the Executors personally. But are they required to pay a debt that they believe is unenforceable? I don't know, I've never seen any legal discussion of that situation.

 

As £10k is quite a large sum of money it might be worth you spending a bit of it to get a legal opinion from a specialist Probate solicitor on what your Executors should do if this situation arose (from the solicitor who drew up your Will?).

@dx100uk

It is the 1% that I am thinking about and my wife's ability to sort things out.

I realise it is likely to be difficult to enforce but I don't want to leave any problems behind and so i was thinking of trying to get them to back off even though my current tactic is to ignore as I can handle the issues as they come along whilst I am alive!

 

@Andyorchno It is not secured in any way and all I am getting is please pay us letters  no threats CCJ is now 11 years old

  Good Idea but most solicitors will tell me the same that you have highlighted that the execuotrs have a duty to reapy all debts before Beneficiaries This could have potential problems for many on this site Would this same situation apply to old non ccj unenforcable debts that we have ll "Won or believe to be SB" Our legal experts on here will have a better insight to  the situation and what our goals and pitfalls are possibly even experience of a similar situation where a member of this site has died

The property is owned by me and my ex wife and would have to be a restriction and no there isn't anything registered at the LR 

I think they would be a bit more forceful if they had any hold on me
