    • Fig. 5: Account Status Codes for Current Accounts Explained 0 Your account is in credit; your account is not overdrawn; you are managing your account within the terms of your agreement. 1 Agreed repayments are one to two months behind; your overdraft balance has been greater than your overdraft limit for one to two months; cheques, direct debits and standing orders may have been bounced to keep the account in order. 2 Agreed repayments are two to three months behind; your overdraft balance has been greater than your overdraft limit for two to three months; cheques, direct debits and standing orders may have been bounced for a second month to keep the account in order. 3 Agreed repayments are three or more months behind; your overdraft balance has been greater than your overdraft limit for two to three months; cheques, direct debits and standing orders may have been bounced for a third month to keep the account in order. 4-6 Agreed repayments are more than three months behind but you have agreed new repayments with the lender to bring the account in order. 8 Your overdraft balance has been greater than your overdraft limit for more than three months and you have not agreed new repayments to bring the account in order. The lender has decided that you have broken the terms of your agreement and has told you that your account is now in‘default’; the lender has closed your account. U Your account has just been opened; your account is more than three months old, has a zero balance and has not been used in the last month.
    • Para 4, ICO technical  guidance on the filing  of defaults at CRAs   4 It is an accepted industry standard to record only serious ‘defaults’ with credit reference agencies. The term ‘default’ on credit reference files is used to refer to the situation when the relationship between the lender and borrower has broken down. A record showing a series of payments as six months in arrears when this does not reflect the real payment history should not be used as an equivalent of a default. Where a code is used to describe a default or variation in payment, it should always be accompanied by an explanation in plain and intelligible terms which informs the reader of its meaning. 
    • I read this morning that ‘a cabinet minister’ has complained that over 70s are being contacted before all over 80s have been vaccinated.  It’s beyond all sense to me that a vaccination programme should be slowed or halted for any reason except safety.  I accept there’s a pecking order and we’d like to adhere to some notion of fairness where possible but this is a pure numbers game surely.
    • Even if a county court case is issued against you and you loose if you pay within 28 days it dont go on your credit file and also its cheaper to go to court becasue the £60 is never allowed so it would be £200 if you loose £230 if you dont go to court.

    • 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!

Recommended Posts

Still not heard anything, the woman I spoke to with the interview was lovely.

She just said it’s more than likely il just have to pay the amount back.

Fingers crossed that’s all it is.

I've replied now but please bear in mind that we're all volunteers here so people get here when they can. Also, weekends are quieter here but we do what we can.   HB

Sorry, thank you!!  

A solicitor would be the last person you want for this. It's not an interview under caution, the worst that will happen is that they will take around 8% of your future award, going forward. That's it!

This is the letter 

 

“Provisional tax credits statement for 06/04/2019 to 06/04/2019

it says for that period child tax - £24.29

then it says 

thank you for telling us about your recent change of circumstances. This change means that tax credits were not due after 06/04/2019 and we have to review the amount of tax credits paid to you for the period 06/04/2019 to 06/04/2019.

please complete and sign and return the tax credits declaration form we sent you by 32/07/2020.
 

 
Amount to be paid 
£24.29
payments already made to you  £8001.48
Amount of overpayment from earlier years £888.66

Amount due from you 
£8865.85 

Upto April 2019

from this award period £8865.85
of this £888.66 already been collected 
£3330.54 already been collected back from later awards

£8865.85 still to be confirmed as overpaid.


it doesn’t make sense to me.
What are the dates about and why are they both the same?
I’m guessing I will receive more letters about the other dates?

well you two are simply the blind leading the blind and each stressing each other out unnecessarily ..:bounce:

you can use photos in a PDF use the sites listed pdf merge and pdf shrink 

if you cant do i'll do it for you later.

 

they are not interested in other years else they'd have asked already

10'000 get exactly the same letters everyday

all you'll be asked to do is pay a reasonable small sum from benefits going forward thats all.

 

there are numeous threads here already of people that stressed for nothing with proof of outcome

 

one even said they'd spent more time unnecessarily stressing about everything that they knew from day one it was wrong but stressed about doing nothing rather than doing something then...:crazy:

 

why not just get on with life and not stress ...stress is no excuse i said.. they laughed and said yea that's me..i spend all day on facebook looking for things to stress out about even if i don't have any of my own issues to do it over......:noidea:
