AND THE CLAIMANT CLAIMS

1. The sum of £2940.00

 

What is the total value of the claim? £3135
 

Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC (Pre Action Protocol) ? I don't know
 

Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred? Yes
 

Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? I still have a bank account with the same bank, and I changed my address for that

Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account? Overdraft

 

When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007 ? after
 

Do you recall how you entered into the agreement...On line /In branch/By post ? online
 

Is the debt showing on your credit reference files (Experian/Equifax /Etc...) ? I don't know
 

Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Assigned to PRA group, claim issued by them
 

Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? Yes
 

Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? Yes
 

Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Sums in Arrears”  or " Notice of Arrears "– at least once a year ? Im not sure
 

Why did you cease payments? Became unemployed due to ill health
 

What was the date of your last payment? July 2017

 

Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? No
 

Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? Yes. An agreement was in place to pay £100 per month, which resulted in debt being reduced from £5300 to £3600. The bank then chose to end the agreement, and demanded payment in full. It was then transferred to collection team.

In October 2018, I received a letter stating that they had identified that I had not been treated correctly during the term of the overdraft, and they reduced the outstanding debt by approximately £600.

 

When I first requested the overdraft, I was not working, but in receipt of tax credits. I was able to subsequently increase my overdraft limit to about £5,000, with no affordability checks, and the fact that I was either not working, or in part time work. 

Im not sure if any if this helps?

 

I will send the CPR 31.14 Request tomorrow, by recorded delivery.

I have also acknowledged the claim on line using the MCOL service.

 

I am not sure what I need to do next?

Any advice will be gratefully received!

thank you

  • dx100uk changed the title to PRA Claimform - old Halifax overdraft

why don't you know if you got a letter of claim?

as the claim has come to the correct address and you say you updated halifax of the address, you should have received multiple notices from PRA group to date.

doesn't help them if they didn't issue a Letter of claim.

 

your best bet now is to use our enhanced google search box on this page and type in

 

PRA claimform Overdraft OD.

 

it's worthy to note there are no agreements with OD's so good luck producing that PRA.

i will guess your current running A/C is not the same A/C number quoted in the POC?

Hi. Thanks for your advice. I have had various letters from PRA, but I’m not sure if any of them were a letter of claim. My 31.14 request sent by recorded delivery has now been received by them.

The current account with the OD was closed by halifax, but I still have another current account with the same branch. 
What happens now, can I expect a response from PRA? 
thanks again

Hi,

thanks again. 
What is my defence? Is there a particular way I need to word it, is there examples on here? I have searched like you said, but can’t find what I’m looking for!

Looks that way! They have 28 days to respond, presumably they need to produce the requested documentation? 

Invariably never.....but if they wish to proceed the court will order them to.
