    • Please would you give us the name of the appeals company which you went with. I'm curious but alos there may be others who have been let down by them and I think that it would be helpful to know. Thanks   I see also that you have been asked to post up certain information/documents and you haven't done so yet
    • The boiler had started losing pressure. I was getting concerned about it. ASG sent me  a letter saying that to keep the warranty valid I needed to power flush.  On the morning of the power flush the boiler failed completely and I turned it off.  The flush technician decided not to flush through the boiler as he was unable to get it to work and reported it as leaking.  I then got ASG to come out the next day. ASG refused to mend the boiler stating that the power flush had damaged it.  I have spoken to the flush technician who has explained he did not flush hot. He has done power flushes for many years and has never seen the damage alleged caused by a power flush.  An independent gas safe engineer has also stated that the damage could not be caused by a power flush.  The boiler was maintained annually by ASG according to the contract. It includes a fifteen year maintenance contract.  I was g I NG to sar them and try going either via the FSA or possibly court.

    • Thanks very much that makes absolute sense. That’s exactly my aim at the minute to secure my vehicle. That has to be priority before I worry bout unfair payments etc. I sent the letter of complaint in the hope they may enter into a payment plan still. If I thought I had the time until the 31st January then it allows me time to prepare next steps etc.  only problem is If there is a ban on repossessions why were they attempting to do it the other day and saying they still are. 
    • Yes ban ends  31Jan Time order would be good  but Just suggesting a free urgent alternative to buy a 30 day stay BOS are still the Wild West of lending  Law Commissions proposals were dropped by the Government  However once you have secured your car you have grounds for complaints IRL, unfair treatment ,etc Problem is once you sign a bos you have effectively transferred ownership of your vehicle

    • 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!

Robbersway chasing 10yrs old ex Barclaycard debt - prove it letter or statute barred letter?


Recommended Posts

thank you for reading and any advice you can provide me.

 

i have an old cc debt that I have not paid since around 2012.

I have recently received numerous letters and also phone call about this.

Refused to talk to them and never responded to letter.

 

I am 99.9% certain that this is statute barred although have no paperwork so cannot be sure that the dc letters are in regards to this matter.

 It is not showing on any of my crfs. checked all of them...

 

want the badgering to stop now

do i send them prove it or statute barred letter, or a combination of both?

 

The 0.01% uncertainty of it being SB is making me think I should sent prove it letter first but do not want to admit any liability and set things off further.

 

Is there a letter that combines both prove it and SB that I should use?

 

Genuinely cannot thank you enough for this forum and for any advice you can give.

a prove it letter is a total waste of time

and you cant reset any SB clock by merely sending a letter whatever it is unless you specifically state i owe you this debt and sign it.

 

whats the debt all about and who is chasing you?

what was your last payment date  or use date of the card and to whom?

have you moved since taking this card out and failed to update the debt owner of the move regardless of any time limits?

RH you mean robbersway sorry robinson way?

 

if you've not paid anything to anyone since 2010

send our sb letter from the debt collection section of our library.

 

you should never be moving without updating your debt owners on any debt that you might have paid toward or used the said credit within say 7yrs

you risk a backdoor CCJ you'll know nothing about.

RObbersway 😂

Ive checked and i dont have any ccjs on my crf.

In theory, could the DG bring a claim against someone after the 6 year period if that person had not updated them with their new address? Just asking that bit out of interest

Will send the SB letter.

Thanks again for your help, much appreciated

 

Don't seem to be able to access the SB letter as it is saying I need to register, but I am logged into my account? Any help much appreciated along with advice on my last question about someone not updating their address. Thank you

yea ok have patience we are volunteers you know.

 

we call backdoor CCJ's roboclaims. northants bulk issues 750'000 a year - that exactly why it was setup by the court system

as no-one checks anything and no humans is ever involved

so yes you can get get a CCJ on an SB'd debt if you've not told the debt owner where you now live

there are 100's of backdoor CCJ threads here already.

sorry didn't mean to come across as demanding...apologies

I know that I don't have a CCJ but i was wondering if a DC could bring a CCJ against someone after they had not been in contact for over 6 years, on the basis that the debtor had not told them that they had moved, ie could the DC use that as a reasonable reason to extend the 6 year period? Even if the debtor had not acknowledged the debt or made any payments, for over 6 years. sorry I know what i am trying to say but probably not expressing it very well.

Yes they can......its irrelevant if its statute barred or not...because they will get a default judgment but only if you have moved and not informed them of your new address...as your previous known address is deemed good service.

 

If you have informed them of COA and you have not made payment or acknowledged the debt within a period of 6 years (5 Scotland).....you simply defend on the basis of the claim being statute barred...but you can only do that if you get the claim form and defend in full....hence the need to keep your address up to date on all financial matters.

 

The statute of limitations can not be extended in any scenario.....but who would know unless you defend the claim.

Thanks for the insight

They have my current address now (10 years later) and  havent already brought a CCJ against me (none of the letters they have sent make any mention or threat of court action), and they are writing to me at my current address as listed on my crf file. So, if I send them the SB letter, they have nowhere to go with chasing me any further then?
