    • i can't find a lost scottish court claim for a speculative invoice... likewise i haven't seen any gauge of an increase in PPC's issuing court claims in scotland since the much trumpeted POFA changes in Scotland - if they even happened or changed anything   it pers concerns mea bit  more as you say you've read up....focussing on POFA.. that you still appear not to have understood the very 1st basic principle of PPC things ..they are not FINES.   if they did get sheriff officers to issue a claim, and again there is no data to indicate any increase at all in them doing so, bar a handful of cases you can count on one hand in the years before, there would be plenty of chances to fold .
    • Hi This is the email i sent in December.     Hi  I do apologise but I must say going by your list of varying case studies upon your website i think you are wrong. There are various examples there of let us say loans that have have recently completed, whereby resolutions have been found, they were not deemed out of time just because the policy was entered into at the start of the loan, some +10yrs earlier. What concerned me more was the DMP and thus the CMP & CML membership were only recently concluded.. The comment you have made that PayPlan sold me the two plans I've complained about in October 2007 is somewhat mute as policies were still live within the last 6yrs with regard to payments toward them , even within the last 3yrs , if fact. I would also like to mention. "letters in 2015 from Payplan should have alerted me there was an issue," is again pretty mute as I was not aware then I could complain of mis-selling, there is no evidence I can find before 2017 anywhere that CMP & CML were even reclaimable.! I would also like to point out there is a diff between CMP & CML, they state they are both membership schemes, they are NOT. I also believe the above further answers his exceptional circumstance question...there are none as I believe I don't need any as I am NOT out of time! For the reasons above I don't agree with your decision and would like to have this looked at by an ombudsman as stated in your previous email. Kind Regards.     I will post the attachment shortly.   
    • Ah I see, I did kind of give them a notice to pay up in 7 days before taking things further but they refused and instead asked for the next instalments through a solicitor letter. I was thinking whether it would be better and more cost saving if I instead take this to a small claims court as oppose to the big courts, I know that is what you suggested at the begining. I was just not sure if I had a case since I unfortunately signed the new variation agreement.   
    • Yes, I expect that the mutual agreement was based on "we'll give you this amount of money but part of the deal is that you agree not to talk about what happened during this mediation". I suppose that either party can insert any demands they want in the mediation process and it's up to the other party to accept it or to walk away and then to go on to court
    • Never heard of that....a mediator cant impose that ...nor the defendant unless it was mutually agreed between both parties.

    • 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!

Cabot/Ruthbridge/Capital One


Recommended Posts

Just a quick question regarding Cabot.  

 

I believe it’s for a Capital One Credit Card taken out December 2010.

 No payments made since April 2014.  

 

There is a default registered on my credit file dated October 14, 2014.  

 

I’ve ignored all the standard letters from them regarding the debt but is it likely they can still take me to court regarding the debt.  

It’s for £568.  

Thank you.

Statute baring of 6 years runs from date you failed to make a payment due.   So I guess you failed to make a payment in May 2014, therefore statute barred from May 2020.

 

Doubt they will issue a Court claim at this late stage for that amount, if they were mistaken that the statute barred status was from October 2020.

We could do with some help from you.

Thank you.  I was trying to find out if the statute bar was from the missed payment or from the default date but all I could find is from the date a creditor had cause of action but I’m unsure of what that actually means.

  • dx100uk changed the title to Cabot and old Cap1 Card debt

run with defaulted date unless you can prove cap1 took months to register it.

 

pers i'd not respond until or unless you get a letter of claim

as long as you've informed cap1 or cabot in writing if you've moved since taking it out.

Hi.  
 

yes I informed Cabot that we’d moved and the correct address shows on the credit file.

 

Can I just ask.  I was trying to find where I’d read after the default expiring 14 days after the date it’s recorded.  Is this correct.  So the recorded date is the 14th October but they would have until the 28th October to make a claim.

That’s correct, always assume the default date if the last payment was made before them. That said at this stage it’s supremely unlikely that they will do anything.

We could do with some help from you.

I’ve received a letter today from Cabot Financial saying that as they’ve been unable to reach an agreement with me they’ve passed my account to a company called Ruthbridge.

 

It’s regarding an old Capital One credit card which doesn’t show on Credit Karma, Clearscore or Equifax and Experian has my credit score at 998.

 

I believe the last payment was in April 2014 and I wrote to them in Jan 2020 to advise of our correct address apart from that I’ve never called or acknowledged any letters.

 

Has anyone heard of Ruthbridge as it’s a company I’ve never heard of before.

 

Many Thanks

Thank you.

 

I was using my iPad and it wouldn’t let me change anything but I’ve asked my husband and he’s done it on his laptop.  Sorry for being an idiot.  I’ve spent the morning having chemicals pumped into a helmet I’m having to use to fumigate student bedrooms and it’s obviously gone to my head.

I’ve sent off the SB letter first class recorded delivery.  
 

I have just printed my name digitally but was wondering do they have to accept it without my actual signature.  Can they be awkward about it?

I received a letter from Ruthbridge today in regards the SB letter I sent.

 

it just says that after liaising with their client (Cabot) the account has been returned to them in order for them to deal with the matters raised.  It also says the account with them has been closed and I’ll receive no further communication from Ruthbridge.

 

Then it finishes by saying that our client will be in touch with you shortly regarding the issues raised.

 

So now I have to wait for Cabot to get in contact with me.

Don't lose any sleep over Cabot. They can say anything they want in future but can't change the fact that it's now Statute Barred.
