Lowell/Overdales PAPLOC Now Claimform - old Vanquis Card Debt.

Recommended Posts

Hi - after some advice please.

 

Had a credit card with Vanquis handed over to Lowell on 24/04/2016.

 

When they originally contacted me I dispute the outstanding amount as there were PPI charges on the account which I trying to get back from Vanquis.  Stopped receiving letters from Lowell so that was that. 

 

back in 2019/2020 started getting letters again from Lowell which I disputed. 

I did ask for a copy of the notice of assignment but got sent an email copy which was not on a letterhead also contact numbers missing so queried this as not being a true copy and something they had just printed off.  The amount on the NOA is £1516 but on my credit record its £1443 so not sure why the amounts are different. 

 

About a weekk before receiving the claim form I got a letter from Lowell saying that they had wrongly put charges on my account and would be refunding these, although did not give amounts.

 

Got a claim form from them on 26/11/2021 issued by Oversales but the amount in the form does not reflect any refund either.  I have not idea why my credit record saying £1443 but they are stating £1516.

 

I will be replying to the claim form via moneyclaims and send SAR to Oversales but would appreciate advice etc regarding my defence.

 

I am attaching copies of letters I have from them.

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...

Reason for the above was to avoid the issue of a letter of claim.  If the NOA was incorrect they would have no reason to issue a Letter of Claim.  Not having a legal background thought this was the best way.

Hi - request copy of my file held by Lowell via their solicitors Overdales.

 

Got an email yesterday saying my file is ready for viewing online and I am just waiting for the passcode to arrive via the post.

 

What do I need to look for in the pack. 

have already sent me a copy of my original agreement signed online. 

 

What do I need to put my defence as being the PPI they charged which I disputed. 

Also the different amounts in their requests for payments.

They also contacted me saying they were going to refund part of their charges which had been done in error but this has not been done. 

I cannot find the letter but I am hoping it will be in the pack.

Just received a letter from them saying I need to respond by 9th January if not they will ask for a CCJ to be issued.  I hve still not received the pin number to access my online documents which they emailed to me on 29/12/2021.

 

Any advice on the next step.

They have said to the county court judgement.  I responded to the AOS via email as could not log onto MCOL.

Sent off for SAR which I got via email on 29/12 but still waiting for the pin number via post to I can access.

They ask to phone if not received but no number of email so have emailed twice advising no pin received.

Hi - only just seen the post as I have been vaccinating all afternoon.  No MCOL is still not working for me.

I wanted to see the paperwork as I have been trying to get PPI back from them so wanted the amount.  It has been awhile so don't have the relevant paperwork.

What is the defence I need to submit.

you were told long ago forget the ppi thats nothing to do with this claimant nor their court claim, that would be between you and the original creditor and a separate issue.

I am not 1000% sure, Jan 2016 is the date they have on my credit report for a default but according to the statement of my payments they have on file my last payment date was May 2015.  See attached extract from the statement they have on file.

 

vanquis statement last pay.pdf

 

That was from me yes but after that I queried charges with them as well as doing a PPI claim with them but never heard back. 

As you can see in the posts payment was stopped due to hubby not working in May 2015.

under the login details of the claim you have to mcol did it ever work for this claim from day 1?

 

i'm wondering if you had an earlier login as you have other claim threads so must have already registered and cant have 2 logins 

 

here is the defence you need to file

 


 1 The Claimant's claim was issued on (insert date).

 2 The Defendant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions of section 5 of the limitation act 1980. 
.
If, which is denied, the claimant contends that the Defendant is in breach of the alleged contract, in excess of 6 years have elapsed since the date on which any cause of action for breach accrued for the benefit of the Claimant.
.
 3 The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £[insert figure from their POC]  or any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.

 

.....................

 

MCOL is only one way of responding to a claim. 
(AOS, DEFENCE, N180 ETC)
.
If you are having problems logging in, or would prefer not to use MCOL
you can fax, email or post your response to the Court instead. 

If you send your response by e mail 
please send it to [email protected] 

ensure you quote “Claim number xxx xxx (type of response i'e AOS , Defence, N180)” in the subject field.

Never got onto MCOL

 

I did email saying I was struggling and got a reply saying site was having problems and to email.  Have proof I did try.

d

Overdales also contacted me on 30/04 and 07/09 (same letter) saying I had 30 days to contact them or CCJ would be issued.  Which I ignored

 

then got a letter on 02/12 which was a Notice of Claim. 

Don't understand why they did a CCJ after 2nd letter and not 1st????

 

How do I get it taken off my credit file?
