    • https://completelyretail.co.uk/scheme/2418                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I do think he is right about the car park.   This is the Purley Way Retail Park and the photos of the vehicle were taken in the other park.                           
    • That WS is appalling.   I got lost with all the "I", "he", there is only one person being sued.   You, personally, have been great at supporting your dad's mate, but as the mate is presumably retired I don't understand why he/she hasn't used the time to look up WSs that were successful on the forum.    
    • worthy to note on google earth that is the purley way carpark in their NTK pictures and if thats his car , the defence and that WS is not going to work.   he is looking at the WRONG carpark, in his statement, the caravan one with the bailff notice is not purley way !!
    • Having received a claim for a parking infringement in February 2020 my friend went to discover where the Purley Way Retail Park was.   He told me what the 6 shops within this complex were and I then knew that I had never been inside these shops or the car park that is situated in front of these stores.  Apparently, he had also spoken to a member of staff within one of the shops who confirmed that there was no time limit for parking in this car park.   I then replied to this with a defence claim stating the following.    "I have just received notification of a parking infringement which occurred 25/5/19." "Obviously, I can't remember where I was on that day but I have now visited the Purley Way Retail Park where the offence is alleged to have occurred and I can confirm that I have never shopped in any of these six shops in that retail park. also there doesn't appear to be any parking restrictions apart from caravans"     Perhaps I should have said that I had not parked there on that day in question 25/5/19 but that is what I meant.   I received a reply to this defence claim dated 5/3/20 rejecting my defence.   Mr then said he would help me in this matter and he returned to Purley Way Retail Park and took photographs of the entrance and the signs available at the entrance. He then emailed them to BW on the 20/4/20 as shown above after a phone conversation with them.   As requested, the 3 photos (numbered 1,2 and 3) of Purley Way Retail Park. The drive-in entrance is the only way into the units and although the 2 car parks either side of this unit only allow parking up to 3 hours, this car park has no parking restrictions which was confirmed to me by a member of staff about 2 months ago.   I suppose it's possible that a year ago parking restrictions were different and if so, can you please let me know when they changed. He received confirmation that they had been passed on to their client and would get back with a reply.   As he had not had a reply, he phoned on two more occasions but no reply had been received from TPS. Eventually he phoned on the 3/8/20 to be told that they now had a reply, after over 100 days and they would forward it on. On receiving that email, he immediately knew they were not photos of the Purley Way Retail Park (photo 4) as it was a much larger car park and he told that to BW.    On the following day further photographs were sent of my vehicle in the same car park as the previous days offering which is not the Purley Way Retail Park.   He was not completely sure what the car park was but on his return to this county he discovered they were photographs taken in the Lombard Retail Park (photo 5) which is situated over 3/4 mile (1.2km) from the Purley Way Retail Park. I have also enclosed photos of the same car park (numbered 6 and 7) in which you can clearly see the Matalan store and also the Range which replaced Homebase when it shut down.   Bearing in mind that you have shown a photo of my vehicle in this car park it could not be in the Purley Way Retail Park at the same time and I confirm it was not ever left in the Purley Way Retail Park.   I believe that the facts stated in this statement are true.

    • 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!

Hi, I’ve been contacted today by IDRWW chasing up a debt in Abu Dhabi owed to HSBC. I’ve owed this debt since 2016 however it seems HSBC are now putting down the pedal on collecting. Can anybody help?

  • dx100uk changed the title to IRDWW Chasing old HSBC 2016 Abu Dhabi debt

They emailed today asking me how I’d like to be contacted, if I don’t reply in 7 days they’ll use my email.

I’ve been dealing with a company called Taksheel but now it seems HSBC are using a UK based collector 

 

I’ve seen the threads on here from a couple of years ago.

I’m unsure as to what jurisdiction they have here.

Unsure if the laws have changed.

 

I’ve no assets here and living with my mother.....the work I have doesn’t allow me to pay anything to them.

 

I’m quite lost to be honest and my mam is worried they’ll come knocking and pestering her.

Taksheel were offering a settlement  reduction of 80% of the outstanding loan. I thought I had to try and accept this as it seemed a good deal. I had to send letters of hardship, bank statements, anything to  prove I couldn’t meet the full amount.

 

they reneged in the offer and made a final settlement figure of 65%, I couldn’t raise this so I refused. I gave them my phone number, I answered on one occasion and listened to them begging me to pay.

ive had nothing more from Taksheel since 3 weeks ago. Now IDR have stepped in.

 

I thought by not refusing to pay or not ignoring them they’d see I want to pay something but cannot pay all. I’ve offer £10k but they want £15k I just haven’t got it.

 

I tried to settle due to a possible job in Dubai, I didn’t want any restrictions or to be lifted upon arrival however the job never materialised.

Is your current UK address showing on your credit record ?

 

If it is, then I would have thought they would write to the address on record and not via email. Just block their emails.

 

Appears to me that they are not in any hurry to collect this debt.

 

Given this is a foreign debt, if they were to  issue a UK Court claim ( which they probably can do), then they would have to provide a UK postal address for the Court claim, where you had a chance to respond. 

 

If you did want to return to Dubai or any other country where this debt is more of a problem, then you would contact HSBC to deal with them directly and not any Debt Collection Agency or firm of Solicitors acting as Debt Collectors. These are just in it to collect a portion of the debt to put in their pockets. 

We could do with some help from you.

I’m not sure if it is showing on my credit history but I used this address to open the bank account in Abu Dhabi but I’ve never received any letters by post from them..

I’ve been I and out of work and living abroad since 2016 and I know I’m not on the electoral register here.

I was in the pub game previously and I’m still paying debt from this hence I can’t pay the HSBC

Forgive Me the pub debt was from the UK in 2010.....after I was stitched up by the brewery.

 

The Abu Dhabi debt is a result of an old business partner not paying the loan back...they stopped after a year however the loan was a personal one in my name.

 

As for arrested I meant if I returned to the Middle East at any point.

 

will IDR come calling to my mothers house?

Shall I ignore all correspondence from them?

The reason I’m paying it is because my mother took a re-mortgage. I was a multi operator and the debt was accumulated after all overdraft facilities were withdrawn and replaced with loans. A culmination of poor RV’s, tenancy deals and light fingered staff left me cutting my losses and bailing out. Here I repaid £25k  from £57k.

Thanks for the info regarding IDR but what happens when they begin, will they try bully boy tactics, threats etc ?

Will this end in court here?

How is the Pub debt recorded/registered ?

 

Your Mum took a re-mortgage but this pub debt is not registered against her property ?

 

Agree with dx, that you may want to review this pub debt. Still repaying 10 years later and not really having means to move on, is something that does not feel right.

 

Moving onto Dubai debt, yes in most cases UK Court claim is possible as the finance agreement will be noted as non exclusive jurisdiction, saying subject to rules of foreign jurisdiction where debtor is resident, the creditor can look to enforce debt using foreign Court. But there is a process to be gone through and it would be up to HSBC as they are likely to still own the debt. 

 

What appears to happen where debtor does not have means to make meaningful repayment, is that the creditor or debt collection does not bother pursuing further. But the debt is not cancelled and can be subject to further chasing years later.

 

If you don't want the hassle of this debt with continued communications over years, you could enquire with HSBC in Dubai. Just tell them of your circumstances including other debts and ask what help they can offer. Ask them whether they are willing to consider full and final settlement for a reduced amount, if you were able to borrow.

The pub debt was paid by remortgage and wasn’t recorded, it was taken as a loan and paid back at a reduced settlement. The point I’m trying to get over to the HSBC and previously Taksheel is that I have other commitments.

 

I’ve tried reaching out to HSBC but to no avail, they simply let Taksheel speak on their behalf. The settlement offered by myself was £10,000 but they’re holding out for £15,000. My point is that out of this they’ll be paying Taksheel a large % so why not deal with me direct ?

 

my intention is to ignore IDR but whilst I’m at work I worry that they’ll come knocking and pressure my mother. I think I’d better brace myself for a court case.

there are NO examples of them doing this

and anyway they cannot.

 

a dca in the UK is NOT a bailiff.

and has zero legal powers.

 

it smacks me that if this HSBC debt is SO enforceable, why have they offered such a huge 80% discount.

something smells.

 

i will gather with the other debt you are repaying you mother and sadly, even if the original debt was probably somewhat bogus, it's been paid so too later...

Rude and abusive

DX.....are they likely to seek a court case?

 

I would want to avoid that. I’ve still got £10,000 set aside for a settlement with HSBC but have no way of contacting the right people again.....it seems they’ve rejected my offer and won’t discuss with me. That’s what I’ve been led to believe from Taksheel. It now seems they’re trying to escalate things with IDR.

even if you had £15k i would not be settling this as i VERY much doubt unless you got it in WRITING from HSBC themselves that the whole debt is gone, it wont be, you are just lining fleecers pockets.

 

there are no instances of any of these UAE etc debts being sold on.

so the ONLY ones that can do court are banks themselves

 

in your case this is HSBC.

i can nor ever have found any examples of HSBC doing court on one of these.

 

pers i'd be ignoring everyone now until or unless you get a letter of claim from a solicitor that states their client is HSBC, 

 

have you had all the social media abuse sent to friends and relatives etc yet and the abusive phone calls to them at 4am ?
