    • Hey, thank you very much again for your replies!   - We go to the branches and ask for business accounts, but as I give them my personal name they register them as sole trader accounts in their systems, regardless of my company name being on the agreement.  Suspended our services for high volume messaging -- that is not explicitly covered in terms and conditions Send us letters referencing wrong terms and conditions that we did not sign Terminate the contract and come with a random balance number. We argue unsuccessfully, but they don't follow up with the requested deadlock letter. Pass our account to Lowell in 2017 I pick the account back up when I notice it is affecting my credit file in 2020 I work on the case for about three weeks and file a complaint with CISAS I give Lowell my contract and they see it is my company's name on it so they pass it back to Vodafone Vodafone wants to settle my account quoting they should not charge me anything on the first place and they offer £250 as a compensation for distress. I mistakenly accept the offer because of confusing wording and thinking that the third party adjudicator was already involved in the case, although they would basically get involved on the later stage.  I make a complaint as per CISAS and try to reverse the settlement in the system and have third party adjudicator having a proper look into my case and hopefully reward me a much fairer compensation for all the damages.    I have made a SAR request with both Vodafone and Lowell so far, but still waiting for the Vodafone to send it.    I am now waiting for CISAS to respond, but because I am still upset how much damage this has caused me I am considering taking them to small claims court.  For that I am researching what are the acts I would have to reference in that case.   Obviously Consumer Rights Act 2015 and then Data Protection Act 2018 and perhaps some acts regarding entering into contractual agreements -- can you help with that maybe?        My main concern at the moment is to how to express claims well in a legal language, because £250 they offered feels just patronizing given that there has been everything clearly written in black and white, yet I have had to go though this damaging and humiliating experience. 
    • Cooling off periods do not apply to faulty items. The cooling off period relates to a distance purchase of an item which is of satisfactory quality. Where an item is faulty then it become subject to the rules under the Consumer Rights Act
    • I understand the cooling off period for online purchases, but this is a little different due to the item being collected/paid in person.    A used item was recently sold by auction on eBay. The seller inspected, paid with cash and collected the item in person.    The buyer is now claiming the item to be faulty.    If this transaction was completely remote and the item posted, I would absolutely expect the buyer to be entitled to a refund.    But as the transaction happened in person would the point of the money changing hands be when the contract is made? Therefore not giving the buyer any cooling off period?   I think this is the key information; Used item Paid in person Working when collected Private sale   Thanks!

    • Insurers can't call it a claim if you didn't make a claim under the policy (so they can't, for example, use your call to reduce your NCB).   But many policies require you to report any damage to the insurer even if you don't make claim, and this is usually one of the questions asked when people are getting quotes through online sites. There is nothing to prevent an insurer increasing your premium if your car has been damaged even though you didn't make a claim. It feels unfair, but that's what's allowed. (Insurers' logic is that if you have had a small accident that you haven't claimed for you are statistically more likely to have another accident and next time it might be larger. I know that doesn't sound very logical when it's a tile falling off a roof, but "the computer says".)

HMRC Overpayment??

Recommended Posts

Looking for some advice regarding dealing with the Debt Collection Department at Trafford dealing with an 'over payment' from 2005/2006/2009/2010 totaling over £8000.00. 

 

Was in discussion with HMRC back in Early 2017.  Their last letter being April when they listed the years they were claiming for and stating the reason it was an over payment was because we hadn't signed and returned some declaration in 2005 + 2006 + 2009 + 2010. 

 

My last letter to them stating it really wasn't an over payment they were just claiming back every penny we have ever been issued because of 4 unsigned forms went unanswered by them.  Nothing else from them until last month came the letter from the debt collection department.

 

I immediately issued a letter stating I didn't agree with the amount being claimed.

I didn't think it was an over payment. 

 

We were entitled to the money that they had 'awarded' us and to contact the previous person I had been dealing with three years ago. 

I requested they obtain copies of all correspondence from 2017 and send me a copy.

 

On 02/04/2020 I received a telephone call from Trafford to say thank you for the letter, they couldn't obtain the documentation I had asked for, I had to do that myself and then could send to them and due to the virus they were suspending collection of this amount. 

 

The person on the phone couldn't advise me how long it would be suspended for.  I asked him to put it in writing advising me they couldn't get the docs I have requested and that it was temporarily suspended.

 

On 03/04/2020 I received a letter to advise they were applying to my employer to instruct them to adhere to the attachment of earnings order and deduct a percentage of my wage and send to them.  It had a copy of the letter inside addressed to my employers.

 

 

On 06/04/2020 I received a letter thanking me for my letter of the 17th March. 

They attached a sheet detailing the over payments that they were claiming. 

Confirmed they could not request the previous correspondence and I should request this direct from HMRC.  In the event of a dispute I had to contact HMRC.  They wouldn't suspend collection until advised by HMRC but under the circumstances they arr temporarily suspending recovery action.  They will write to me soon about paying it back.

 

2005 £821.53     2006 £1635.14     2009 £390.76     2010 £1298.62

 

My husband has received an identical letter with the same figures on.

 

I am unsure what to do now.  I don't  want to sit on it until they start up the recovery again.

 

Do I now contact HMRC and continue to argue this out with them?

Can they legally take money from my wages even though I am disputing this?

Does me not signing a form constitute them being able to recover everything I have been paid?

 

My youngest child left school in 2016 and I never claimed for 2007 + 2008  + 2011 + 2012 + 2013 + 2014 + 2015.

 

Can anyone advise me of where I go from here?

Thanks in advance of any help anyone can give me

Hi.

I'd just leave it , for now. They are dealing with a whole world of other issues and I'd be surprised if this reactivates in the next 12 months, if ever.


We could do with some help from you.

I sent them an SAR back in 2016 when this started.  I had 6 parcels delivered which had roughly a thousand or more sheets inside each parcel which are just screenshots of computer screens.  Copy after copy is just the same thing. They mean absolutely nothing to me at all.

 

I have now found the award notices for most of the years we have claimed.  Some of them say that they are amended awards but there are figures on there which say amounts have been reclaimed.  I am going to go through them year by year and try and see if I can get the figures to match what they are claiming.

 

The only thing I am unable to locate is the last letter from them saying the reclaim was due to us not sending in a completed form.  If I ask them for specific correspondence from a certain date, would they send it without sending me the whole lot again?

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes you can ask them for a copy of the original decision letter stating the over-payment amount and also ask them to provide a breakdown calculation of the over-payment amount, with an explanation of why they believe it is owed.

I have sent the letter off today.  Lets wait and see what it brings.  I have also asked for an address of an independent body to complain to.  Is there such a thing?  Thanks for you help.

HMRC complaints process.  There is an adjudicator as you will see.
