Looks fine, just a couple of touch ups in red! :)

 

Hi

I have compiled a pretty 'straight for the jugular' kind of letter and just wanted some advice on whether or not to send it or amend it or send something completely different etc..... I am also sending a letter to GE Capital telling them that they shouldn't have used BCW etc....

Honest responses please...

Thanks Boo

 

I have written to your Company on numerous occasions requesting that you supply me with a true copy of the alleged agreement referred to above. This is my right under your obligation to supply a copy of the agreement under the legislation contained within s.78 (1) Consumer Credit Act 1974 (s.77 (1) for fixed sum credit) - your obligation also extends to providing a statement of account. I enclosed a £1 Cheque in payment of the statutory fee and Data Protection Request. Cheque Number ***** which has been received and cashed.

 

I also requested a signed true copy of the deed of assignment of the above referenced agreement that you allege exists. At which point you were notified that you were obliged to supply these documents, whether you were the original creditor or not under S189 of the CCA 1974.

Non-compliance with my request as I informed you is a criminal offence under the above Act and will result in a report being submitted to the relevant statutory authorities.

 

As you are aware, a credit agreement that is not properly documented and signed by the customer is totally unenforceable under the CCA and therefore is a complete defence to any court claim that is issued.

I did, in addition to the above request copies of statements of the account.

The only information I have received to date is a copy of a Statement from Capital Bank - From July 2001 to October 2002.

After carrying out checks on your organisation I am now in possession of information that leads me to believe that as you are not registered with the Information Commissioners Office register of data processors you do not hold a license and are therefore committing criminal offences. Under sections 17; 18; 19 and 20 anyone who obtains, holds and stores data about individuals must hold a license to do so.

 

You do not hold a license and are committing criminal offences under the Data Protection Act this carries a penalty fine of £5,000.

As there has still been no proof of this debt being incurred by myself I now require you to do the following:

  1. Refund to myself all monies paid to your organisation including interest.
  2. Compensation for the unlawful processing of data and using illegally obtained information to unlawfully chase a debt.
  3. Confirmation from yourselves that I have no further obligations to your Organisation and that there is no debt outstanding.
  4. Arrange for the default and all other account information to be removed from my Credit File.

You have 14 days to comply with all of the above, failure to do so will result in a Criminal charge being brought against your organisation and a claim being submitted through the small claims court to include all of the above.

 

Yours faithfully

 

 

Boo

One more thing with the letter, you have used the word "lead" you need to change it to "leads".

 

You need to ask the DCA, expecially if they have provided the deed of assignment, although they are licensed under the DPA so I would be inclined to send it to both....maybe send it to GE Capital and "CC" it to the DCA? You could put in the letter that you haven't sent it to the DCA because they aren't registered with a DPA license and you therefore can't guarantee the security of your data that is processed by them?

 

Hope that makes sense!

Find out who put the default there if it was GE CAp then they are the ones who have to remove it ....if it was BCW then they are in more trouble they are using someone else DP licence and should not have put it there in the first place.

Boo - I hope I have caught you before you get to the postbox.

 

You are quite right to "go for the jugular" as far as the non-production of the Credit Agreement is concerned. The bottom line is that they shouldn't have to go back to the original creditor if they have bought the debt because they should already be abiding by it's terms and conditions.

 

Also, you have a very valid issue regarding charges which have been added on by BCW. According to the OFT guidelines, additional charges have to be cited on the signed agreement (which of course, you haven't got). Even if they are they should be reasonable and proportional which does not seem to be the case.

 

I have looked on the ICO website though, and both BCW Group PLC (in Stratford) and BCW (Public Sector) Ltd in Glasgow are registered for debt administration and factoring so, I would be very wary about using that part of your letter.

 

I hope that helps you

Hiya Bev I'll try and clear the misunderstanding up.

 

Each and every individual Ltd Company who has its own registered office address and processes data MUST have its own individual licence.

Therefore Buchanan Clark & Wells Ltd in Glasgow do not have a licence to process data......... fact.

 

To get the picture right, go to ICO web site go to the register search and punch in Black Horse Ltd ( its the easiest one I know) You will see that every different Black Horse Company has its own licence ....because IT has to.

I'm still confused honey - Buchanan, Clark & Wells part of the BCW Group at 11 Elm Court are the people that I am dealing with and they have a licence as overleaf!

Just to clarify here (and I know that Boo has already established that the office she is dealing with has a licence)

 

BCW (Public Sector) Ltd

24 George Street

Glasgow

 

Has a licence for debt administration and factoring under purpose 6.
