Idem Claimform - HSBC Credit card from 2005 *** Claim Discontinued***


Recommended Posts

Hello, long time lurker first time post. 

 

I have been sent a County court claim from IDEM Capital that i need to respond to and i have no idea what i am doing. 

 

Short Story.

 

December 2008 defaulted on a number of credit accounts and entered a DMP with CCCS which is now Step change. 

 

Step change closed the DMP in April 2019. there was still balances on accounts. Idem are chasing a few and some with Cabot

 

Idem became a pain in the backside and sent lots of letters and even had a company called resolve call visit and give me a nice card to call them. 

 

I did call them and requested copies of any agreements they are chasing so i can check. 

 

Whilst doing this i sent all the original company's a  PPI claim. - all failed because they either never had PPI or the company could no longer find any record of me. 

 

The one i have here from IDEM appears to be an HSBC credit cards, i have had a letter in November  2019 saying the following:

 

Further to your request for a copy of your original credit agreement, for HSBC credit card account xxxxxx. we have approached the original vendor HSBC, who have advised us they are unable to provide us with the requested documentation. HSBC are able to forward us a reconstituted copy of this agreement should this be required. 

 

I spoke to them after this letter and said i wont pay them until they can prove the debt and they sent me a statement showing payments form Step change and advised me that this is enough proof of debt because payments have been made for many years. 

 

Also the sent me a credit agreement for someone else in a pack of transaction history and then a £50 cheque as an apology. I still have the cheque and never cashed it. 

 

I need help with what i do with the claim form and if i have a chance of winning or do i bite the bullet and pay it.

 

Thanks in advance

Morning, I have today received a letter from IDEM so signed for delivery.

 

Thank you for your request to sections 77-79 of the consumer act 1974.

unfortunately, we are unable to supply a copy of the credit agreement at present, we have contacted the original lender for a copy and if available it will be sent to you under separate cover in compliance with your request.

 

the balance of the account is still outstanding and we will continue to pursue this debt which will include registering and arrears or defaults with credit reference agencies. We can confirm the balance on your account of £4277.61 remains due and payable and we will contact you to discuss repayment proposals.

 

in the meantime we attach a statement of account detailing the transaction history which will also display any fees and charges that may of been added.

you are free to take whatever action you consider appropriate but we will not be releasing you from your obligation under the agreement.

 

i then have 2 pages going back to 2012 showing step change receipts until 18th April 2019 when the DMP was discontinued.

 

on the 18th of December is a £50 credit adjustment and then a refund which is a cheque they sent me but never cashed for when I requested copies of the documents previously and they sent me someone else’s.

 

i look forward to any feedback

usual crap from idem then.

looks like they are already on the back foot with no CCA since late last year.

it's also worthy to note the brits only ever bought lemon debts that were unenforceable anyway which is why the original creditors sold debts too them.

 

as for the balance ...the fact that it might well include a substantial amount of PPI and unlawful penalty charges and that HBOS could not find the details, again adds more nails into Idems coffin but not to +£4k mind.

Hello All, 

 

I am really struggling with this defence. I feel i have copied to much

 

1) An agreement between HSBC and Defendant/s (D) subject to standard terms and conditions

2) Claimant (C) purchased the debt 13/10/2016

3) it was a term of the agreement that is any instalment was not paid on due date, C would be entitled to repayment of outstanding balance of total amount payable less (on Payment) any rebate that D maybe entitled

4) D Failed to pay instalments due. C issued a Default Notice requesting payment D failed to pay sums due, which consequently became immediately due and payable, Formal demand issued dated 10/08/2020

5) D has failed to pay outstanding balance of £4277.61

 

DEFENCE

 

1. The Defendant contends that the particulars of the claim not valid

 

2.  I have in the past had financial dealings with HSBC. I do not recall the precise details of any agreement but do recall it was around 2006 from my records I have nothing that matches the agreement numbers you have supplied

 

3.  I have never entered into any agreement with the claimant therefore I can not be in any breach of any terms as no agreement exists with the claimant.

 

4. I received a default form HSBC on 2008 in relation to an agreement so you cant issue another default

 

5.I have asked for copies of the agreements and statements to prove the debt of £4277.61 and Had a reply on the 29th November 2019 that you are unable to provide any of the original agreements and this was followed up again on the 2nd September 2020 and you replied confirming you did not have any agreements.

 

Therefore the claimant is put to strict proof to:

 

(A) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement with the claimant; and

(B) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for: and

(C) show how the claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim.

 

5. As per Civil Procedureic on Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

 

6. On the alternative, if the Claimant is an assignee of a debt as alleged it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

7. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to pursue any claim

 

 

I'm really sorry, this all appears very complicated and I don't want to put things i cant understand or back up,

Hello, what do think of this? i have taken most of it on the above mentioned posts, i need to submit today really because I don't think I will gain access to a computer tomorrow 

 

1) An agreement between HSBC and Defendant/s (D) subject to standard terms and conditions

2) Claimant (C) purchased the debt 13/10/2016

3) it was a term of the agreement that is any instalment was not paid on due date, C would be entitled to repayment of outstanding balance of total amount payable less (on Payment) any rebate that D maybe entitled

4) D Failed to pay instalments due. C issued a Default Notice requesting payment D failed to pay sums due, which consequently became immediately due and payable, Formal demand issued dated 10/08/2020

5) D has failed to pay outstanding balance of £4277.61

 

************************* FINAL Defence *********************************************

 

 

 

1.  The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim vague and are generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

2. The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.

 

3. I have in the past had financial dealings with HSBC . I am unaware of what alleged debt(s) the claimant refers to having failed to adequately particularise its claim,  or even referring to an account number. I have therefore sought clarity from the claimant by way of a Section 78 request and a CPR 31.14 request.

 

In response the claimant has confirmed they do not have an agreement between HSBC and Myself

 

And in response to my section 78 request for the HSBC agreement - was not supplied and therefore remain in default and prevented from enforcing the alleged agreement.

 

4. Paragraph 2 is noted but it is denied that I was ever served Notice of Assignment at the time of the Assignment.

 

5. Paragraph 4 is denied. I am unaware of any service of a Default Notice (s) pursuant to section 87 of the consumer credit

 

6.It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:

 

(a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and

(b) show and evidence the nature of any breach and Default Notice;

(c) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and

(d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;

 

7. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.

 

8. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.

 

 

9. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.
