    • Good news for me is that the Bounce Back Loan came through so I can pay the full car payment!  Thanks for reply.
    • Welcome. please follow the advice given above as to reading around the various stories and then monitor this thread for a full reply tomorrow  
    • Hi Everyone,  I am the seller in this case and want to thank the buyer for their support.  The bike was delivered to the local Hermes Parcel Shop really well packaged and sealed on the 3rd Feb with a receipt obtained.  Sadly the parcel was emptied on route to the buyer.   I had listed the bike for collection only however the buyer messaged and asked if we could arrange a courier to which I agreed and they organised that.  When the bike went missing I contacted the local police as the Hermes parcel shop said they would not release CCTV to me.  We got all this from the Police.  since then the buyer has tried his very best which I am grateful with Hermes and parcel2go but is struggling.  Any help is appreciated. 
    • Also, you should start a claim against Hermes. Post your story on the Hermes sub- forum. Give us a full breakdown – including dates and value et cetera. We will help you get your money back
    • We care, we are highly motivated – and we enjoy winning against Hermes – which we do on pretty well every occasion. Start reading the sub- forums so that you are familiar with all the Hermes stories and the way that the process normally goes. Make sure you understand the mediation process. Make sure also that you understand the steps involved in bringing a small claim in the County Court. It's very easy but you need to know the steps in advance so that you have confidence. Don't forget that this is a self-help forum   If you have CCTV footage then please post it here. I suggest that you put it up on youtube and then post a link to it on this thread.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Intrum/Moon Beever Letter Of Claim - old halifax overdraft


Recommended Posts

Hi i am pretty new to all this but am desperate for help .

 

I do have my self to blame but am so worried what the new charges will do to me in november .

 

I have had a halifax account for over 25 years now and say over the the last 8-10 years have used the overdraft facily .

At first it was only about 600 so wasnt too bad but then i could easily up it online no problem .

 

 

My finances spiralled out of control and upped the overdraft too 1700 so the fee was only a manageable 30 pound per month .

I then got involved with many payday loans and was also doing alot of online gambling .

 

 

this year i went from 1700 overdraft up to 4800 even though i only earn 1000 a month .

I have been refunded all payday loans interest and some written off through the FOS Wonga, Sunny etc .

 

 

At the moment i pay 99 per month in fees but this is too rise to well over 200 .

Under no circumstances can i afford this .

 

 

I think the halifax have irresponsible allowed my overdraft to go up knowing i only earn 1000 a month .

One night i increased my overdarft 4 times each 500 because it was so easy to do.

I am in financial hardship and it is worrying me sick .

 

I have not contacted the halifax yet and not sure what road to go down .

I am not very good with words and i worry alot .

 

I know i have brought this on myself with the gambling etc

but they should have a system that dosent allow you to increase if you dont have the money going in .

 

Just too add i have paid halifax over £3200 in planned and unplanned fees too date .

Not including their other system before 2010 were i paid alot of fees to them .

Any help would be appreciated

 

Thanks in advance

Ann

Probably but the only way y are going to take control of your money is to stop people helping themselves

it may well be that a large portion of the OD is unlawful fees and the interest they've caused.

After a lot of correspondece with the fos i have now received this .

I wondered if anyone could help .

They say at £1 a month but that will never clear the debt , could they sell the debt on and land me in more troulble . any help much appreciatted .

 

Dear Mrs xxxxxxxx

 

I’ve now had a response from Halifax with regards to your income and expenditure form and complaint.

 

They’ve reviewed your income and expenditure form and have identified that you have a deficit each month.

Because of this they wouldn’t agree to a repayment plan of £40 a month.

 

Instead, the maximum they would accept is £1 a month unless your circumstances change.

However, you will need to contact the Collections team to discuss your options on 0808 145 0439 once your complaint with us has been resolved.

 

Moving forward, Halifax has calculated the charges you incurred from January 2017 until 11 December 2017 (when your account was placed on hold and all charges suspended). It totals £1,020.34 which they’ve rounded up to £1,100. They’ve offered to use this amount to reduce your outstanding balance on the account.

 

Looking at my previous recommendation, I now feel the above offer is fair as I only asked them to refund your charges and interest from March 2017 not January 2017. A hold has been put on all collections activity on your account and for your account to be fee free whilst we are looking at your complaint.

 

Please let me know your thoughts on Halifax’s offer and if you’d like to accept it or not.

 

Kind regards

doubt it.

if Halifax are so confident you owe all the money

why don't they take you to court rather than sell it on?

they'd kill you in court

but they never do...urm.....

yes the letter of claim with response pack ,  it was about 2 years ago maybe i posted about the overdraft but i cant find it either . I had run it up to about £4k before the new daily charges came in and no way of affording it , .  

 

i have received a sale of assignment back in november 2019 and a notice of assignment was sent in december.

i know there is plenty of interest charges since the account opened in 1990 and overdraft charges .

 

I stupidly kept raising the limit online because off gambling and  lied about my earnings to get the increase .

i can afford to pay back about £100 a month but dont really want to pay them all the charges that i occurred

because the account is subject to and continues to have, serious on-going disputes including an FOS investigation, regarding fees and questions regaring irresponsible lending.

 

(not that they are active, but they don't know that)

 

I would expect them to drop this not brick.

 

DO NOT communicate with them in any other way without checking here 1st...ever from now on
