The National Bank of Ras Al Khaimah/IDRWW Courtclaim - old UAE Loan/CC


Recommended Posts

Good morning All,

 

Hoping for some advise, I have received a claim form from IDR regarding an alleged debt to a bank in the UAE.

 

I have filed the AOS, defending all, I'm just looking for some guidance / advice / opinions on how I would defend such a case should the claim proceed.

 

Thanks in advance!

you've not fully answered the questions in our link....

 

I will guess this is IDRWW on behalf of the original creditor?

can we have the full POC verbatim as written minus any pers details.

 

you say you've not moved? but you must have escaped from UAE to the UK?

when please?

and how many times have you moved within the uk since arriving?

as there would have been a lot of previous warnings and paperwork sent somewhere ..like the pre action protocol Letter of claim.

 

please expand upon your story inc what payments plans you had in the past and when with the original creditor.

  • dx100uk changed the title to The National Bank of Ras Al Khaimah/IDRWW Courtclaim - old UAE Loan/CC

Thanks for the reply, Apologies  I didn't provide the right information 

 

The Claim is for repayment of a credit card and loan debt incurred by the Defendant whilst resident in the United Arab Emirates. 

 

Pursuant to Practice Direction 16, this claim against the Defendant is a claim for payment in a foreign currency; namely Arab Emirate Dirham's ("AED"). The claim is so pleaded because AED was the currency borrowed by the Defendant and advanced by the Claimant under the terms of the Credit Card and Loan. Adopting the foreign exchange rate of www.ft.com as at   the claimed sum of AED XX,XXX equates to £XX,XXX. 

 

To confirm re moving / addresses- Moved from the UAE back to the UK, haven't moved since coming back to the UK. This was in March 18.

 

I haven't received any documentation prior to the claim form, no PAPLOC.

 

No payment plan, but was in communication whilst in the UAE regarding financial problems. Left the UAE due to a variety of issues, mainly relating to my employment & the health of my wife.

 

Thanks

.

 

I will guess this is IDRWW on behalf of the original creditor?

 

Named Claimant on the form is the creditor- docs issued by IDRWWW

This is probably important to clarify.

 

I do not have copies of any credit agreement(s). I have what appear to be "reconstituted" copies of application forms, which were submitted with the claim form

 

The terms are illegible on the loan application form, so I cannot verify either way in terms of what the document actually says re jurisdiction.

The Credit card application does not encompass detailed terms, these are in a separate document (copy also submitted)

 

The statement submitted by the sols with the claim form does make reference to various "terms" including jurisdiction - words to the effect that they can choose the court.

 

I can provide copies of all if that would help.

so basically like all the other uae claimforms threads here

they are flying a kite to see if it will stay in the air.

 

it might way pay you here to do what you've suggested and scan everything they've sent in terms of paperwork to ONE multipage PDF.

read and follow our upload guide carefully please.

 

we've got till sunday to file the AOS and if/if not jurisdiction is worthy of contesting.

 

get the stuff up and p'haps andyorch will pop in an advise then.

 

just please be aware of what you read elsewhere and take it with a large pinch of salt!! if it's true or not.

they do and will use any trick in the book to exert pressure upon you.

now might be a very good time to insure things facebook and linkedin etc are blotted down tighter than a duck's...… in terms of privacy of relatives details etc.

 

one thing that strikes me it this is all rather very quick if you only escaped in march...ummmmm….

hehe yes I did read that wrong

so not quick then..

 

strange nothing prior to court claim from them mind 

as they should be abiding by the pre action protocol and issue a letter of claim

and they would have been numerous prior comms/letters going by their usual MO.

  • 2 weeks later...

There is a non exclusive jurisdiction clause in the terms  - so having read previous threads, I thought it was not wise to do so 

 

I have sent a 31.14 request for various documents to be provided.

 

neither the claim form

or POC contain any account numbers, no basis or calculation of how the claimed amounts have been arrived at, the POC doesn’t mention the claim number and is full of speculative comments and claims without basis or evidence.

 

Ill get all the docs redacted and uploaded so tomorrow so I can get the defence away, some input on that from @Andyorch would be appreciated
