    • Hi there. So I am currently being scammed by a hire company that I have used previously in the past. I had rented a car from them some time ago but it seems they are using my details fraudulently now. It is not really much of a hire company, more like a small family outfit with just a guy and his son with a small office who rent a few cars out. I have received a letter from police regarding a hit and run on a car I have never rented. Spoke to the hire company and it seems they are doing dodgy stuff on the side.   I had no involvement in the incident, nor did I hire the vehicle involved in this incident. The hire company passed my details on to the police when they were requested for information despite the fact that I did not hire that vehicle from them. I believe that they had kept my details from a previous time I had hired a vehicle from them in 2020. I believe they used this to information from a previous hire agreement to fraudulently pass liability on to me.   They have since sent me a pdf of the hire agreement they had with another person on the dates of the incident and have told me that this was the person who actually hired the vehicle. Additionally the pdf they sent me was not signed by either the hirer or the hire company so I am a bit suspicious they plan to pass this along to someone else in the same way they've done to me. I have just filled out a response to the police letter filling in the info section that I was not the driver and putting the information that the hire company gave me of the "correct" details of the person who hired the vehicle. I have also included a hand written letter explaining the situation that this was probably fraud by the company and that I was not involved in the incident nor was I the person renting the vehicle. I just sent the response to the police a few days ago regarding this.   Additionally, and probably even more surprising given the fraudulent activities these guys are undertaking, they have sent me a MCOL claim for +£10k for this accident they are trying to pin on me. They have included cost of premium, insurance, repairs and time off the road. Absurd seeing as I did not hire the vehicle from them. Hopefully the police issue is sorted out with the info I sent them, although I do worry that they won't accept the hire agreement the company sent me as it was not signed by the hirer or the company, but that is a question for later when they respond. Regarding the MCOL claim, I do not know what I should do. The son at the hire company (who is the guy who sent me the copy of the hire other hire agreement) is ignoring me and the dad at the front desk is claiming he does not have information on what his son may or may not be involved in. This is all becoming stressful. I am not sure whether I should counter claim, defend or can just inform MCOL that this is a fraudulent claim that I should never have been dragged into. Any advice is welcomed. Thanks.

    • Hi   I agree with the above post.   Could you clarify is your building a mix of council & leaseholders or leaseholders only?   The Major Works Charges you mention they have added you are entitled to ask them for clarification on exactly what these works are, when they are going to be carried out, by which company and for a breakdown of their costs for these Major Works.   As you mention as an example your windows you need to have a good read of your Leasehold Agreement to see who is responsible for what maintenance. As an example only your leasehold may have a clause that the leaseholder is responsible for the maintenance of the windows again eample only so have a good read of your lease.   If their are other Leaseholders as mentioned in a previous post it may be worth talking to other leaseholders about setting up a Residents Association as this would be another way to challenge the Management Company as long as they recognise your Residents Association.   Couple of links for you:   https://www.lease-advice.org/faq/how-do-i-form-a-residents-association/   https://www.fpra.org.uk/

    • 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!

Please review figures shown.... I think they are correct based on the level of charges v the amount that their settlement letter states you owed to avoid the default notice.

 

Your PM stated the default value as only £91, so I'm not sure how these fugues differ so much.

 

Maybe it's just late! :-)

Thanks for that J2B, I have added some bits at the bottom and changed the figures. Have I done so correctly?

Re: County Court Claim number ********

 

Dear Ms Wilson

 

I write in response to you ‘settlement offer’ letter dated 16th January 2007 and acknowledge receipt of this.

 

I reiterate that my claim is in 2 parts and they are intrinsically linked.

I thank you for your attempted settlement even if it was short of the daily rate of interest amount, but since you are unwilling to see the correlation between the unlawful charges imposed on my account and the subsequent default notice, I must inform you that I do not agree to the settlement offered and my claim will continue through the courts.

 

I am confident of my position and believe that I will be able to show a Judge that I was never lawfully indebted to you by the amount that is shown on the default register, or at all.

 

At the time of the default notice, you had imposed £820.00 in unlawful penalties. By offsetting this amount against the actual balance of the account, my financial position would have been a positive balance of £98.00 (this figure is £918 default amount - £820 charges total, is this right J2B? – thus the information passed to Credit Reference Agencies was inaccurate.

 

In your settlement offer letter, you refer to the position of the account and state “Your account defaulted with a balance that did include fees…”

With this in mind, it is clear that you understand the basis of my argument. Whilst you are attempting to persuade me that those charges were not unlawful, I would remind you that I am fully convinced that they are. It is a County Court Judge that you will need to convince otherwise.

 

Clearly I have no power to stop you from crediting my account, but I wish to make it perfectly clear to you that your actions should not be interpreted as an agreement on my part. If I receive any monies directly from your organisation in relation to this settlement offer then they will be returned immediately.

 

Should you wish to review your position with regard to removing the default from my credit files then I would be more than happy to enter into further discussion with you in the hope that you might avoid wasting the court’s valuable time.

 

In addition to this you will be aware that, on the 3rd January I made a request for a copy of my original signed credit card agreement. I allowed for the 14 working days required which bought us up to Friday 19th Jan 2007. I am still without this information and you have received a postal order for £1.00, so I suggest that you send this information by return. I must also make you aware that again on the 3rd Jan 2007, I sent you a subject access request together with the statutory £10 fee, and as of today’s date you now have 23 days in which to comply. If you fail to comply with this request then I shall seek a Court order obliging you to do so together with damages at the discretion of the Court and without any further notice.

 

I trust that this clarifies my position.

 

 

Yours faithfully

I should also clarify that you have failed to include the daily rate of interest accruing since the date of claim which is £0.16p per day.

I trust that this clarifies my position.

In addition to this you will be aware that, on the 3rd January I made a request for a copy of my original signed credit card agreement. As a member of the Consumer Action Group, I am aware that you are obliged to supply these documents within 12 days, under S189 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. I allowed for the 12 working days required which bought us up to Wednesday 17th Jan 2007; I even then gave you a few extra days as a gesture of good will. I am still without this information and you have received a postal order for £1.00, if you cannot supply this, then I expect you to write to me stating your reasons why it can not be produced, I will then expect the fee to be returned and will consider a separate action to deal with this matter. I suggest that this information is forwarded to me by return.

 

I must also make you aware that again on the 3rd Jan 2007, I sent you a subject access request together with the statutory £10 fee, and as of today’s date you now have 21 days in which to comply. If you fail to comply with this request then I shall seek a Court order obliging you to do so together with damages at the discretion of the Court and without any further notice.

 

I should also clarify that you have failed to include the daily rate of interest accruing since the date my claim was issued, which is at a rate of £0.16p per day.

 

I trust that this clarifies my position.

One other thing, do you think I should write to the court to inform them of these developments, if so should I just infom them that they have attempted to settle part of the claim but their offer has been refused due to their refusal to remove default and inaccurate fee with regards to daily rate.

 

Any thoughs J2B et al?

I don't think you need to let the court know just yet - there should be an opportunity to let the Judge know the score at a later point.

 

I have made a small amend in red above, I think this should be deleted. The remainder seems fine to me...

Hi Tanz

Sorry that I did not respond earlier to your thread, I have been out all day and have just returned, I had show my cousins son arround London and he is only here for a few days. I have read the letter and the changes that J2B has made make it a very good letter. So good luck with it and hope that they listen to you and remove it.

I recomended yesterday to another CAG member to look at your thread that also wants to get their default removed, as I feel you are more advanced.

Regards

DS

Hi Tanz,

 

I was recommended to your thread by DS ;) (as he says) and have read through with interest; it would seem that I am literally a day behind you in the same position - I received my letter from Ms Wilson saying "here's your cash but no default removal" on the 17th Jan :mad:

 

I hope you don't mind but I've pinched your above letter :p which I will alter with my details and post on my thread for opinions first; my thread is: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/capital-one/42034-smel-c1-refund-plus.html

You'll also notice my claim is less than yours which leads me to believe you have a better chance than me at winning this! Maybe if we can storm Ms Wilson's desks with letters she'll give in...

 

I don't suppose you've come across any successful winners against C1 who've had their default removed too or are we the first? :sad:

 

Anyway, I'll be watching your claim closely. Good Luck!

HSBC *WON* Total £3500

Capital One *WON* Total £385 plus removal of default

Next Disputing Default Notice - CRA's were very unhelpful, am going to make a complaint to OFT/FSA and considering court action following this.

For the Husband:

NatWest Current Account *WON* Total £3500 plus removal of default

Great thread. I'm about to set out on the same road as you Tanzarelli- claiming charges + default removal with Capital One, Sainsbury's and Barclaycard. Has anyone ever had their default removed by the banks, or are Capital One unusual in their stubborn resistance to removing the default?

Yes people have had defaults removed but I have yet to come across anyone from [email protected] Un. If you find them let me know.

 

However I have come this far so not going to be bullied into backing down, i will be working on my case and trying to get as well prepared as possible. However it will at the end of the day more than likely depend on the judge on the day. I will have to cross that bridge if and when it comes. I am confident that i am right though so thats what i am concentrating on.

 

Thanks

... are Capital One unusual in their stubborn resistance to removing the default?

 

No, all organisation will likely fight this kind of claim. If you are asking for a default removal as part of the claim for charges refund, you are quite likely to have a day in court - unlike 'simple' bank charge only claims.

 

There is far more at stake for banks if a ruling is made against them on this issue, not least the potential for damages. You have to be aware of the amount of work required in studying the issues surrounding these claims and putting together your evidence etc.

 

You might wish to see an unhappy ending to one of these claims, in the hope that you can learn from it... See the link to my Halifax claim in my signature.

I agree Jonni about the likelyhood of court. I will be putting my arguement together as well a trying to anticipate some of their arguements with a view to having a detailed response to them.

 

Its a big learing curve for anyone who starts out reclaiming and we are all still learning, and sharing which is what makes this site so good. My day in court will come and we will see how I fair, all that I can do is my best and pass on my results to others to learn from, as you did so well in your Halifax thread. Definately worth a read if anyone reading this has not already done so.

 

Wise word J2B

Willowb has won charges with Cap One, and then gone back for default removal I believe. Ongoing - may be of interest. She's got other defaults on the go, too (NW & Abbey), so she's getting quite an expert !!!

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/other-institutions-successes/41399-willowb-capital-one.html

:o Bill!!!! Shup up!!!!:-o

 

I'm not an expert but do have experience in this area. I'm currently after 2 default removals, have successfully had 2 removed and am now after Crap One for the removal of not a default but the marker '6' on my/our file which is the one just before a default.

 

Though thank you for the 'big up' big guy;)
