Consumer refund service Claim form - PPI refund Fees - but I cancelled their involvement and did it myself ***Claim Discontinued***


Recommended Posts

Hello, looking for some advice regarding fighting a court claim please.

 

A few years ago I made a ppi claim using this company, this was before I learned how easy it was to do it yourself.

 

Long and short of it is they took so long I wrote to them and told them not to bother as it was taking so long, and I started a claim myself, which was successful.

 

I have now received court papers from consumer refund service saying I owe them their cut of the claim.

 

Unfortunately I don't have proof of the letter I wrote them cancelling the original claim as it was on an older pc which died.

 

Is it worth me trying to defend this or am I likely to end up with even more costs?

 

THe amout they are claiming is £400 plus court costs

 

Thanks in advance.

Courts papers come from a Court. Is that what you meant ?

 

If you have received a Court claim, please post up the particulars of their claim.

 

Are they just testing their luck, you do not defend ?

 

Your defence is that they did not provide the service and you cancelled, deciding to pursue it yourself.

 

Doubt they would go to Court, if you entered a defence.  They would have to prove they are due the £400.

We could do with some help from you.

Did you receive anything from the PPI company regarding the claimant and did the claimant actually get you the PPI back

I know that but the claimant is stating different hence why l asked if they got anything from the claimant saying we got your money back.

 

Is the claim number different to the claim number from the PPI people.

same as all these PPI fee claims.

 

the claimant is a CMC, they will claim the defendant signed a letter of authority, for them to act. they are then also bound by their T&C's.

 

those T&C's will state that if the defendant gets the money directly from the original creditors, their fees and their cut are still due, even if you write to cancel.

Thank you for your help, I'll get onto that this evening.

One quick question before I do, what would be the likely worst case scenario financially if I defended it and lost?

So am I right in thinking the court can't add any more costs on, £470 is the most I could be liable for, and if they did find against me and I paid the £470 within one month the ccj would be erased?

Question about the CPR31.14 request form. There is no solicitor mentioned anywhere on the claim, so do I just send it to the claimant?

Also there are no documents mentioned in the particulars of claim, what should I be asking for, just the original agreement?

THanks again in advance

4. The claimant recovered total compensation over the aforementioned case paid directly to the defendant in the sum of £1654

 

I would add a line to CPR 31.14 to challenge the above and ask that they disclose the relevant document that supports that statement IE the invoice/calculations that they sent to Black Horse Finance. :classic_huh:

I know what the OP has put Dx its just that the claimant has said they got it for him. 

 

Putting the claimant the money was only paid out due to them getting it for the OP or even the initial contact from the claimant would be necessary IMO.
