    • say i was going to write to all these about the debts and try get deal to reduce monthly payments and stop all interest do I write to them first or do I stop payments then write to them ?   Same if I was going for a DRO do I just sort out and apply for that first or stop all payments then apply for it .   Also I see for a DRO it says ive got to go through  an authorised debt adviser so who do i go to about this and at moment we still on lockdown here in wales and not many places open .   Last off ive asked regarding pro rata forms and still cant find any 
    • Yes but I think in a small claims court it will be far harder to prove. I have plenty of evidence to discredit the Director but again it could still not be enough.   She will be a month with no money and I think it’s far more risky than a tribunal where this action alone could result in the desired outcome.   I have said to her to request a face to face meeting to enable both parties to conclude, ideally resolve and at that point we can decide what action we wish to take.    
    • Hi Dimitry and welcome to CAG   I have added paragraph spacing to your 1st post above, to make it easier for all to read.   Please don't use big blocks of text as it makes it far harder to read and folk may not bother. 👍    
    • The insurers wont send a loss adjuster down , I've told them about the gate  and shown pics but cant get a estimate by a builder for gate or whole job as its like asking a builder to estimate damage for my car. The only way would be to get a metalworker down to price the gate up and hinges separately,. this is not going to be easy so i think I'm going to have accept the damaged gate and take the loss. The cash settlement would be better to get the gate sorted later after builder has done the wall. also a cash settlement would be quick, i could wait weeks for BRS to sort things out and then they could go cold on me again. at least with a insurance company you no you will get it fixed despite how long it might take. it has that added security. The home insurance carries a 450 XS plus higher premiums I'm not sure i will get it back.   if i could get a builder to price up the wall and a metal worker to price the gate and hinges up separately the home insurance might accept this, that is a possibility.

    • 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

Wescot / Natwest - "Agreement Unavailable"

Recommended Posts

Out of the blue, I've received a letter from Wescot regarding an alleged account in my name for Natwest. Given I haven't lived in the UK for years and have no financial relationship with any organisation there, it can't be legit. So I've requested further information.

 

Today, I received a letter from Wescot (via a UK post box that opens and scans my mail to me) stating that Natwest cannot provide an agreement, because this relates to a current account (seemingly an overdraft). Instead, Wescot state that they have asked Natwest for "statements" and will forward those upon receipt.

 

While the statements will be interesting, they surely can't form the basis to pursue me for a debt, can they? That would require a credit agreement, signed by me, with terms that mean I'm liable.

 

Any idea how to respond here?

Lets see what statements they send you....if they are on original NW letterheads and in your name and address...then we will go from there.

Are they writing to you outside the UK ?

I've now received the documents Wescot have sent me.

 

They consist of:

  • 39 pages of transaction statements
  • A request to apply a signature to a bank record
  • A 'New Account Sanctioner Checklist', which appears to be an internal form
  • A 'Completion checklist', which also appears to be an internal form
  • An 'Account Opening Form'
  • Two photocopies of identification documents
  • Nine blank pieces of paper

There is no copy of a signed agreement to any terms whatsoever, let alone a credit agreement.

 

Wescot consider my 'query' resolved on account of several pages of transactions and threaten that debt collection will now resume.

You think it's better not to do anything at all? Rather than point out they haven't provided any proof of liability?

Do they have evidence of you living outside the UK ?

 

It might be worth just sending Wescot a letter stating that you are resident in X country and have not resided in the UK since xx/xx/xxxx.  If you have a copy of any document stating you are living at a foreign address, you could enclose a copy.

 

They cannot really do much ( as too expensive to pursue), but if these debt companies get a sneaky CCJ in your absence because they did not have any proof you were resident outside of the UK, then they might use the CCJ to ramp up pressure on you.  For example Commonwealth countries are covered by legislation allowing foreign Court judgements to be enforced in each others courts.  

 

When did you last make a payment towards the overdraft debt ?

 

How did you sign up to the Natwest current account and in what year ?

Not unless you wish to enter into pointless letter tennis about something they can not do anything with anyway.

Hi

I agree, in this case, just ignore.

Generally there is no agreement for an overdraft in any case, so good look to them in finding one. 

 

I dont know how old the OD is, or if you have had a final demand before, but In the case of a bank OD, the Statute Bar runs from  the date the bank sent its first demand for full repayment.


DO NOT PAY UPFRONT FEES TO COLD CALLERS PROMISING TO WRITE OFF YOUR DEBTS

DO NOT PAY UPFRONT FEES FOR COSTLY TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS WITH SO CALLED "EXPERTS" THEY INVARIABLY ARE NOTHING OF THE SORT

BEWARE OF QUICK FIX DEBT SOLUTIONS, IF IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT INVARIABLY IS
