    • ok I will do that..   all we have is the message he sent on his iCloud mail on his iPhone to say he received payment in full with the registration number   the only description we have is the advert itself which is still on numerous sites   funny tho in the email he sent me he said that he has received a deposit..! well no he had all the full amount in cash which he insisted on as that was the way he traded..   I pointed this out to him in my reply so awaiting a response as he had already acknowledged full payment in texts and in our phone recordings..   Dont know what he is playing at..    
    • if you click the red link does it say its had expired?  
    • I purchase an OPPO Find x2 Pro phone from John Lewis online.   The website stated that the phone came with a pair of B&O h4 headphones worth £200 at no extra cost via redemption. When i tried to claim the headphones from the OPPO site it was rejected and I should contact John Lewis. I did and my case has been passed between departments with a few deadlines for a response which were not met.   Until today i was assured that the offer would be honoured, however they are now saying it is my faulty as if i had read the terms and conditions I would have seen that the offer ended 31/3/21. The website is still offering the headphones.   They are now refusing to state whether I will or will not get the headphones and when they will be able to give an answer.    Could anyone tell me my legal position happy yo provide further details   
    • Hi all,   Apologies if this sounds drastic, but i'm a major stress head and it's setting off my anxiety in all honesty so I just want to double check with all that i'm in a secure position.   Upon gyms reopening, I signed up to David Lloyds on the 12th of April. I felt a bit pressured into but the sales representative I spoke to said that I can cancel my membership within the initial 2 weeks if I feel that the club isn't a good fit. So anyhow, as an idiot I agreed. Nevertheless, the next day I decided that perhaps it's not a good move for me financially and decided to cancel.   After ringing David Lloyds several times and being told they would get someone to call me back several times they never did. After calling in again and speaking to the actual woman who sold me the membership she said no worries they'll get it cancelled but only her senior member of staff could do so, and at that time she's not in so she would call back tomorrow. So at this point alarm bells start ringing and having seen a lot of the atrocities and bully tactics online, I decided to put it in writing both in an email and through their app referencing section 5f of their T&C's, and then forwarded on the email to their sales team aswell as their branch. I did get a generic receipt email for both the first email and forwarded email, but there is no tie to the email I sent myself implicating that it is in response to that (other than the fact the time stamps are at the same time).    The next day, it's 6pm and I hadn't received a call. So I called again and kicked up a fuss speaking to the same girl, to which she said look there isn't going to be an issue it'll be cancelled and she'll send it to me in writing. I got the email in writing from her (the email address was affiliated with David Lloyds and it did show her job title) saying that my membership is cancelled within the 14 day cancellation period which was a massive weight off my shoulders, but upon further inspection there was small print at the bottom saying that the opinions are solely of the individual and that David Lloyds accept no responsibility (not sure if thats generic or something that will bite me in the ass down the line). I hate to be a pessimist, but I am extremely cautious that upon the end of the month i'll be charged and they'll pretend to have never received nor cancelled my membership officially and the initial 14 days cancellation period will be over. Having had a look, my David Lloyds account is still active (to the point at which I can book classes) but i'm not sure if this is something that closes at the end of the month as it does say something to that effect in their terms and conditions.    A link for the terms and conditions is found here: https://www.davidlloyd.co.uk/-/media/david-lloyd/files/uk-terms-and-conditions-october-2019-v2.pdf   I was hoping you guys could give me your insight as to whether this is secure enough to provide myself protection as I cannot risk getting a damaged credit rating (I am a worrier as you can tell). I have provided all the necessary screenshots attached.   H

    • 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!

Lowell PAPLOC Now Claimform - Old Vanquis Credit Card


Recommended Posts

Afternoon all,

 

So had a PAP letter through from Lowell Solicitors the other day.

 

Read up on CAG what to do by reading a few posts and then following the instructions through the following link:

 

 

 

The debt is not showing on my credit file but i'm sure it's not SB'd.

 

Today i sent off the PAP reply form to Lowell sols and sent off CCA to Lowell.

 

Now barring any advice from anyone here i shall wait to see what responses i get back. I'll keep you all updated.

They know very well where i live as i'm on the electoral register here and this is where they sent the PAP letter but better to be safe than sorry.

 

Now i know all correspondence will come to my current address and no way for them to backdoor CCJ me!

Sooo.... This one has had a response now. Lowell have written to me and provided alleged copies of terms and conditions, default notice, credit agreement and a full statement. 

 

Damn seems like vanquis are on it for old documentation!

 

At least it's not a claim form. Yet anyway. What do you guys suggest? 

 

My disposable income isn't great at the moment especially with being furloughed for nearly half the year. 

 

Should I write to them offer a £1 a month or??

the DN is compliant

 

the supposed online sign-up CCA return, is nothing more than some office junior getting a blank set of the relevant T&C for time of sign up from here on CAG or lowells filing cabinet . they should should have your name and address in the 1st few lines..

 

they don't bogroll!!

 

as usual there only appears to be a separate copy and paste to the last page of some sort of recortd of sign-up sticker?

 

with a sign up at 01:47AM on a wednesday...really lowells..

.i can i can see you losing yet another vanquis claim here if you raise one.

 

the rest is immaterial bogroll 

though there looks to be ROP (PPI) every month and probably lots of £12 penalty charges to reclaim but i cant see them making +£2700....

 

yours is not the next move...

 

other than get reading up NOW

CPR sent off. Have been reading up and come up with the defence below ready to send off the day before it's due on the 5th March.

 

Think i've married everything up right and met the points set out in the POC correctly but obviously still pretty novice as, a.... well, novice that i am!

 

Any pointers greatly received and obviously still plenty of time to refine in less anyone can see any glaring errors i need to go and read up more on?

 

Might be a bit too full on for an initial defence? Maybe be a bit more vague?

 

Many thanks in advance as always to you wonderful caggers out there! Especially Dx and Andyorch!

 

Particulars of Claim 

 

1.The defendant entered in to a consumer credit act 1974 regulated agreement with Vanquis under account reference xxxxxxxx ('the agreement')

 

2.The defendant failed to maintain the required payments and arrears began to accrue

 

3.The agreement was later assigned to the claimant on 27/09/19 and notice given to the defendant

 

4. Despite repeated requests for payment the sum of xxx remains due and outstanding.

 

And the claimant claims

a. The said sum of xxxx

b. Interest pursuant to s69 county courts act 1984 at the rate of 8% per annum from the date of assignment to the date of issue accruing at a daily rate of £0.610 but limited to one year being £222.65

c. Costs

 

Defence:

 

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

 

1. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had financial dealings with Vanquis. I do not recall the precise details of the agreement and have sought clarity from the claimant.

 

2.Paragraph 2 is noted although I do not recall ever receiving a Default Notice pursuant to sec 87(1) CCA1974.

 

3. Paragraph 3 is noted again I do not recall ever receiving this notice pursuant to sec136 of the Law of Property Act 1925.

 

4. On receipt of a notice of acting letter sent from Lowell Solicitors, the Defendant sent for on the 12/11/2020 via royal mail a section 78 request pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974. This for a copy of the agreement. The claimant has partially complied and disclosed various documents however they were unable to comply with disclosing a valid full copy of the executed agreement on which their claim relies upon.

 

5. Electronic Communications Act 2000 with regards to wet signatures and the requirement of a tick box to validate the application.The documents are devoid of any tick box or any authenticity of IP address conformation check.Therefore the claimant remains in default of my section 78 request and pursuant to section 78  6 a of the CCA1974  the claimant is not entitled, while the default continues, to enforce the agreement.

 

5. On receipt of this claim form I sent a CPR 31.14 request on the 11/2/21 via royal mail to. The claimant remains in default of said request at the time of submitting this defence.

 

6. It is therefore not accepted with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant and the Claimant is put to strict proof to:-

 

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

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

c) Show or evidence service of a Default Notice /Notice of Sums in Arrears,

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

 

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.

good work 

 

you missed the 1st line of:

4. The claimant disclosed various screenshots taken from  the originators software of the application and also confirms on their covering letter the relative legislation The Electronic Communications Act 2000 with regards to wet signatures and the requirement of a tick box to validate the application.The screenshots  are devoid of any tick box or any authenticity of IP address conformation check.Therefore the claimant remains in default of my section 78 request and pursuant to section 78  6 a of the CCA1974  the claimant is not entitled, while the default continues, to enforce the agreement.

 

as for your 2 

the poc does not mention a DN so other than your ref in 6c ......2 should go totally

Hi all,

 

Lowell sols have responded to my cpr with exactly the same documentation as Lowells sent through. So still no valid agreement!

 

Defence due Friday by 4pm.

 

I have updated my defence below based on your points Dx. Many thanks.

 

Would you and Andy mind having a scan over before i send off on Friday please?

 

Cheers in advance as always :yo:

2. Paragraph 3 is noted. I do not recall ever receiving this notice pursuant to sec136 of the Law of Property Act 1925.

 

3. On receipt of a notice of acting letter sent from Lowell Solicitors, the Defendant sent for on the 12/11/2020 via royal mail a section 78 request to Lowell Portfolio Ltd pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974. This for a copy of the agreement. The claimant has partially complied and disclosed various documents however they were unable to comply with disclosing a valid full copy of the executed agreement on which their claim relies upon.

6. On receipt of this claim form I sent a CPR 31.14 request on the 11/2/21 via royal mail to Lowell Solicitors and again the claimant only disclosed exactly the same documentation. The claimant therefore after a second attempt by the defendant remains in default of said request.

 

7. It is therefore not accepted with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant and the Claimant is put to strict proof to:-

 

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

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

c) Show or evidence service of a Default Notice /Notice of Sums in Arrears,

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

 

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.

Dx, thank you sir! I appreciate you saying that even though it is all mainly for my own benefit. Just hope it helps others also if they read this thread.

 

And thank you Andy i will amend my above defence in due course as i have noticed some errors i have made when going ad lib off of some previous defences i have copied from.

 

As for POC 2. response Dx has seen the DN provided from the Lowells that i uploaded in post 7 and has said that it is compliant and not noted in POC.

 

Should i just respond that it is noted? Or because i cant remember receiving it go with the noted but don't recall receiving?

 

Maybe obvious i know but having nearly perjured myself once just want to make sure.

 

As always thanks a million.

They dont refer particularly to a Default Notice within their particulars....so whether you received it or not is irrelevant.

 

But in all defences you must respond to each particular claimed....no response is taken as an admittance by the court hence the inclusion in all my defences......

 

The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

 

 

(3) A defendant who –

(a) fails to deal with an allegation; but

(b) has set out in his defence the nature of his case in relation to the issue to which that allegation is relevant,

shall be taken to require that allegation to be proved.

 

So back to their particular.....

2.The defendant failed to maintain the required payments and arrears began to accrue.

They have to prove that arrears did accrue and if they did accrue did the OC serve a Notice of Default or Default Notice or Notice of Sums in Arrears.

I would respond with something along the following lines.

Paragraph 2 is noted but I do not recall the original creditor providing either Notice of Default or Default Notice or Notice of Sums in Arrears pursuant to the CCA1974.The claimant has since provided copies of a Notice of default and Default Notice by way of my CPR 31.14 request but until it can provide a copy of the executed credit agreement pursuant to sec 78 CCA1974 the provisions of section 87/88 of the CCA1974 are irrelevant until such compliance.

Defence:

 

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

 

1. Paragraph 1 is noted. I have in the past had financial dealings with Vanquis. I do not recall the precise details of the agreement and have sought to seek clarity from the claimant.

 

2. Paragraph 2 is noted but I do not recall the original creditor providing either Notice of Default or Default Notice or Notice of Sums in Arrears pursuant to the CCA1974.

 

The claimant has provided alleged copies of a Notice of default, Default Notice and notice of assignment by way of my CPR 31.14 request but until it can provide a copy of the executed credit agreement pursuant to sec 78 CCA1974 the provisions of section 87/88 of the CCA1974 are irrelevant until such compliance. 

 

3. Paragraph 3 is noted. I do not recall ever receiving this notice pursuant to sec136 of the Law of Property Act 1925.

 

4. On receipt of a notice of acting letter sent from Lowell Solicitors, the Defendant sent for on the 12/11/2020 via royal mail a section 78 request to Lowell Portfolio Ltd pursuant to the Consumer Credit Act 1974. This for a copy of the agreement. The claimant has partially complied and disclosed various documents however they were unable to comply with disclosing a valid full copy of the executed agreement on which their claim relies upon.

 

5. The claimant disclosed various screenshots taken from  the originators software of the application and also confirms on their covering letter the relative legislation The Electronic Communications Act 2000 with regards to wet signatures and the requirement of a tick box to validate the application. The screenshots  are devoid of any tick box or any authenticity of IP address conformation check. Therefore the claimant remains in default of my section 78 request and pursuant to section 78  6 a of the CCA1974  the claimant is not entitled, while the default continues, to enforce the agreement.

 

6. On receipt of this claim form I sent a CPR 31.14 request on the 11/2/21 via royal mail to Lowell Solicitors and again the claimants solicitors only disclosed exactly the same documentation. The claimant therefore after a second attempt by the defendant remains in default of said request.

 

7. It is therefore not accepted with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant and the Claimant is put to strict proof to:-

 

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

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

c) Show or evidence service of a Default Notice /Notice of Sums in Arrears,

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

 

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.

Doubt they will let it get auto stayed as they probably believe they have enough to convince a judge so DJ lottery i guess it will become.

N180/DQs back from lowell sols the other day. 

 

They'll probably give it a week or two before filing with court based on other posts I've read. 

 

Have been reading up in the downtime and have started drafting my witness statement. 

 

Planning a massive smack down on the lowlife fleecers as best I can with the help of the CAG forum..... 

 

Watch this space 🙌
