Lowell Claimform - old Vanquis Card Debt


Recommended Posts

Hey all.

 

I've been on here a while ago to get advice for various friends

- now I find that it is I that needs you advice! 

 

When Covid hit I quickly ended up with no money coming in, I ended up in arrears in various places. 

 

Amongst the various creditors I had a couple of credit cards, one of which I managed to keep minimum payments to, the other (Vanquis) got cancelled (by them - I actually tried to go into their app to start making payments and found that it had been cut off).

 

I've managed to (mostly) get straight again, but now I have received the attached missive in the post.

 

What do I do?

its a court claimform...so you've ignored the letter of claim they sent a few weeks ago as well as loads of others?

 

had to remove it as you'd not bothered to redact your pers details from it.

we don't need it so don't bother putting it back up

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

  • dx100uk changed the title to Lowell Claimform - old Vanquis Card Debt

you are safe to ignore most pointless letter tennis from powerless DCA's whom are not bailiffs and can 99% of the time be ignored totally.

however you should never ignore a letter of claim with a reply pack cause that 9/10 results in a claimform from northants bulk as you've just discovered.

 

never mind 

link please!!

1The claim is for the sum of £1800.00 due by the Defendant under an agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 for a Vanquis account with an account reference of xxxxxxxxx

 

2.The defendant failed to maintain contractual payments required by the agreement and a Default Notice was served under s.87(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 which has not been complied with.

 

3.The debt was legally assigned to the claimant on 30-09-20, notice of which has been given to the defendant.

 

4.The claim includes statutory interest under S.69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at a rate of 8% per annum from the date of assignment to the date of issue of these proceedings in the sum of £103.82

The Claimant claims the sum of £1925.62

 

 

 

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 the CPRr16.5(3) in relation to any allegation to which a specific response has not been made.

 

The Claimant has not complied with paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) Failed to serve a letter of claim pre claim pursuant to PAPDC changes of the 1st October 2017.It is respectfully requested that the court take this into consideration pursuant to 7.1 PAPDC.

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, or notice of arrears, pursuant to section 87(1) CCA 1974.

 

3. Paragraph 3 is noted, again, I do not recall ever receiving this notice pursuant to section 136 of the law of property Act 1925.

 

4. On receipt of the claim form the defendant sent for on 29/06/2021 via royal mail a request pursuant to sec78 of the Credit Consumer Act 1974  a copy of this agreement. The claimant has failed to respond and therefore in default of the request is unable to enforce the alleged agreement until its compliance.

 

5. On receipt of the claim form, the defendant sent a CPR13.14 request on 29/06/2021 via royal mail. An acknowledgment was received, the claimant as yet to comply. 

 

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 the defendant has entered an agreement, and

b) Show how the defendant has reached the amount claimed for, and

c) Show or evidence service of a default notice pursuant to sec 87(1) CCA1974

d) Show how the claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue claim

 

By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the claimant is entitled to the relief claimed of any relief.

Seems that they put everything in the same order in the claim (unsurprising, I guess).
