    • I sent in the bailiffs to the BBC. They collected £350. It made me smile.

    • 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!

PRA PAP Letter received - old Barclaycard Debt


Recommended Posts

Hello

I received a PAP letter from PRA Grp today in relation to a Barclaycard debt that was defaulted in 2015. There was no reply form enclosed.

I have previously requested 77-79 information from them.

 

The last letter I have had from them, apart from account summaries, was in 2017 and stated 'we are awaiting further documents in order to complete your request. We have currently deemed this debt as unenforceable which means we are not able to take court action against you.'

 

Any advice on what I should do/reply would be appreciated.

Thanks

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Yes, submit another CCA request. Unless they have now dug up the CCA, the debt is still unenforceable.

 

Also, you don't need to bother with the reply form, just the CCA request. Be careful not to admit to ever having owed the debt, depending on how the form is worded, you may inadvertently do so. It makes no difference to enforceability if the CCA can't be produced, but can reset the statute barring period providing more time for PRA to obtain the CCA agreement.

Thanks, I've looked back through my files and it looks like they actually did supply with a copy of the agreement a few years ago. I also have a letter of assignment and a default notice from the bank. I'm not sure which documents they are referring to have not supplied to make the debt unenforceable. Also unsure why they've sat on it for two years. 

 

Edit - Actually, looked again and it just seems to be the T&Cs of the agreement.

I'm a bit worried I may have missed some letters. I know they were still sending letters to my former address despite me notifying them of a change of address. Today's letter says' if we do not hear from you within the next 30 days, your account may be submitted to the CC to obtain a CCJ'

I will follow post 2 and also send a new cca.

Thanks for the input.

PRA have now sent me pages of statements, default notice, letter of assignment, an agreement which doesn't contain my signature) and informed me that this debt is now enforceable. They have also sent me a financial questionnaire and asked me to complete it and send it back. Do I need to do this?
