Hi all

I need some help with my claim against Citi Cards. Started a claim against Citi some months ago with the standard prelim and LBA. Received the usual reply telling me to get lost. However just before I filed my N1 at my local court I received a cheque for the difference of the amount of charges that I had asked to be refunded .Citi were claiming to be refunding the difference from the £25.00 charges levied originally to their revised figure of £12.00. All standard stuff.

Replied to Brian Smith advising that the offer was accepted as part settlement only and that I would still be pursuing Citi for the remainder including contractual interest. Heard nothing more so filed my N1 claim at the local court. Received defence from Citi dated 18th Dec. To my horror when reading through the papers it was stated in p8. that they had made an ex gratia payment for £208 and not for £200 as pleaded. After checking my poc on the N1 I realised that they were right.

After checking my N1 I discovered another error in that I had claimed that the account was opened on or around 2nd March 2003 and closed on or around 2nd Jan 2004. However after going through my stats again and my schedule of charges ,I am claiming for charges made in Feb 2003 with the account being opened in Dec 2002.

The question is this do I now need to file to alter my N1 poc or is it to late. If it is to late do I cancel the claim and start again or do I wait until I receive the AQ and carry on. I have checked and double checked that everything was spot on until the payment received screwed things up. One last point in p10. Citi claim that I am not entitled to claim for the refund of the £10,00 SAR fee as this is a fee prescribed by statute and is not recoverable. New one on me. Would appreciate any help.

Know she's probably busy, but gizmo111 can probably answer that question.

 

I went the MCOL route so not completely sure. If memory serves me right you can ammend the details of your claim though think there is a fee involved.

Hi Mutt,

 

I think probably the best thing to do because it is Citi is to submit an N244 with amended POC. Unfortunately this will cost you £35 and is not recoverable.

 

You can find one here and fill in online http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/HMCSCourtFinder/GetForms.do;jsessionid=FC0C4364A9FD7CFF9C663439CEB1B60E

 

If you need any further help just shout.

 

Good Luck

Hi Gizmo,

 

Thanks for the reply. Can I fill in N244 online even though I handed my NI into the court. Also is there any time limit to make the amendment ie before AQ and what about the comments in their defence that I am unable to reclaim the £10.00 SAR fee because it is prescribed by statute.

Again I would appreciate your help on this.

You fill the N244 in on line and print 3 copies of it and post (not like MCOL where you submit online).

Some people have reclaimed the £10, but Citi are correct in that they can charge £10 as a stat fee. As this is Citi I personally wouldn't pursue it as they look for every little thing to pick holes in.

 

Good Luck

Seems to have gone fairly quite for Brian & Co. considering the massive interest against this lot not long ago. Does anyone know of any court dates yet and is there any appeal date set for LTWFB. Also Citi are claiming to have won two cases in N Ireland is that true.

 

Any info anyone.

Hi Mutt,

 

Citi haven't actually won anything - The judge in LTWFB agreed to the £12 as the evidence was bought into hearing at last moment. AFAIK he hasn't a date yet for appeal. Are they quoting a name on the 2nd case and when did they inform you of this.

Morning gizmo 111,

 

In a letter received from David Travis 18th December 2006 he states that there have been two recent actions in Northern Ireland where the cases were brought seperately by a husband and wife and were those of Kissick v CitiFinancial Europe plc.

 

He goes on to say the same old stuff about the OFT report being used in court before advising that the applications by the Claimants were dismissed.

 

He goes on to say that in my claim he would rely on the Courts decision in the Kissick cases and defend his client on that basis.

 

Load of tosh. I knew about LTWFB but not about his wife.

What about all of the other City cases, I thought that a definite date has been given to hear a number of cases in the Mercantile Court.

 

Another thing that seems strange is the fact that City have used the OFT formula to arrive at an actual cost to them for each breach of £12.88. However because they are such a generous bunch they will only charge £12.00 which in my calculations means incurring a loss of 88p on each charge.

As I say if their actual costs (and these have been sworn under oath in front of a judge) are slightly over the £12.00 mark then why would they be worried if the OFT were to look at anything over £12.00. Surely if these costs were arrived at using the OFT formula they could have used the evidence to defend the claims against them long before now instead of resorting to the outrageous delaying tactics that they have been allowed to get away with.

Any comments

 

FROM A SHAREHOLDERS POINT OF VIEW I WONDER if there is any "angle about not acting in the interests of there shareholders" ie deliberately "trading at a loss" is some kind of offence ????

 

as usual it is for others to decide not me ! sorry just realised their shares will be listed in the US and not GB but for for others the question may remain

Hi All,

 

Starting to prepare my court bundle and I could do with a list of all the successes against Citi. Could do with case numbers, amounts and which court.

 

I am claiming CCI and it would help if there is anyone who has already won this and has received payment.

 

My bundle has to be in by next week so early replies would be appreciated.

 

Feel free to PM me if nessessary.

 

Thanks

I have a list of a few Citi successes, strange that these are also normally claims on which Citi have defaulted on orders for a breakdown of costs.

 

Your probably better placed to raise Citi's non-compliance with orders for a breakdown of costs - rather than succesful cases, as each case will likely be judged on it's own individual merits in the eyes of a court.

 

CCI, your probably best to read up on other successful claimants for CCI against other institutions. You'll have to establish a good case for claiming this - might well be that the defendants continually non-compliance to reveal their actual costs when orderred, and different pre-estimate exhibits (which both can't be right) will be a start. Anything that's concise and magnifies the suspicion on their figures will help.

 

Don't think many people have done CCI claims so far against them as it complicates an already hard process..... albeit hopefully my notes helped you out.
