    • If you are flying away tomorrow (or rather this) morning I'd just forget about complaining to the police now.  As BF said earlier it's probably just a waste of your time anyway so I wouldn't worry about it.  Forget it for now.  Have a safe flight and concentrate on your other thread against Aviva.
    • I'm afraid you won't get a complaint drafted before tomorrow morning - and I think most others here think it would be a waste of time anyway and that the police decision won't change.  I would ask for a review and make a complaint on principle, but I suspect you are better off concentrating your effort on your other thread and direct complaint against Aviva.   Unless you are out of the country for an extended period I'd wait until your return before considering futrther whwther to complain about the police.   [ By the way, just so that you don't mislead yourself as it's a mistake many people make, ALL agreements are "verbal" in that they are composed of words.  Some agreements are in writing and others are oral, spoken or vocal.  The law recognises oral or spoken agreements just as much as ones that are written down.  The only practical difference is that oral agreements can be difficult to prove in a dispute]
    • Just to add there is a scheme called the Victim's Right to Review.  It basically applies to decisions made by the CPS not to go ahead with a prosecution.  It doesn't apply to decisions made by local police forces, but it does say:   19.  Decisions that are not eligible for VRR include: ... iii where the police or other investigator exercises their independent discretion not to investigate or not to investigate a case further (whether in consultation with the CPS or not) and the CPS have not been requested / have been unable to make a final decision to charge. Requests for review of such decisions should instead be addressed to the relevant police force/other investigator; [My bold] Victims' Right to Review Scheme | The Crown Prosecution Service WWW.CPS.GOV.UK   I'm not familiar with the scheme so can't advise - but other posters here may know about it or have experience of it.  You need to read the above link but note that it talks about things that seem to fit your situation.   eg a victim is defined as ‘a person who has made an allegation that they have suffered harm, including physical, mental or emotional harm or economic loss which was directly caused by criminal conduct’.   If you have not already requested that the police review their decision not to pass the case onto the CPS, then I would do so.  If you are not happy with the outcome of that, complain.   I can't advise you definitely to go ahead and ask for a review or complain, but if I were in your situation that is what I would do.  But I tend to agree with BankFodder that you'll get nowhere and, if you are sick and tired of all this and just want it to go away, then just drop the police.  However, if you don't try...   [Apologies for the italic typeface/font - it's the above link causing it.  The italics should have stopped at the end of the third para above ending ' ... criminal conduct'.  I can't change it.  Very annoying]
    • @Manxman in exile I eloped to get with my husband si my husband and siblings never sat together in the same room .   Hes claiming a verbal agreement was made but a verbal agreement doesn't hold any water in the eyes of the law..no agreement was made I was in Leeds with my toddler.    He has made use of the policy , had the luxury of the insurance and reversed the money back and now Aviva are coming after me.   You've summed it up well is there anyone in the group that can help me draft the complaint to the police as I'm flying out first thing tomorrow and my head is all over the place.   My husband me Mr z , my late father and eldest brother were at this meeting supposedly when the verbal agreement was made but yet the officer took a statement off the eldest brother and didn't take it off the husband and based the final decision on the eldest brothers statement and Mr Z and all other evidence which is in written form has been completely dismissed    I'm fighting it all alone coming from an Asian background I am getting taunts and salt is bring rubbed on my wounds its not been a pleasant experience yo say the least trying to prove my innocence and having to listen to the b******* being spouted out by everyone whilst Mr Z is walking away not guilty 
    • I would complain to the police - even if I thought it would go nowhere.  I can't see that you have anything to lose.   I can't tell you the grounds of your complaint because I don't know the details of everything that has happened (you know better than I do)  and because I've found much of the story too difficult to follow.     But - based on everything you have told us - it seems to me that your brother has clearly committed fraud by obtaining the benefit of an insurance policy by falsely misrepresenting that he was opening the policy on your behalf and also by falsely misrepresenting himself - or a third party - as being your husband.  If your brother could not have taken out that policy without making those misrepresentations, then he has committed fraud.  It doesn't matter whether the victim was Aviva or you  and it doesn't matter if the victim realises they've been defrauded or not - the police should investigate it properly.  In this case you are the ultimate victim of the fraud because Aviva are saying that you owe them for the premiums on the policy your brother fraudulently took out, so whether Aviva consider they were the victims of fraud or not is irrelevant - they don't care because you end up as the fall guy.  Point out that this may have ended in a civil dispute over a debt between you and Aviva, but that that debt directly arises as a result of your brother's fraud in claiming to be acting on your behalf and by impersonating your brother.   One of the reasons the police seem to have dropped this case (and this needs to be one of your main grounds of complaint I think) is that they have accepted without question your brother's statement that your husband was somehow involved or in some way agreed to your brother taking this policy out in your name, and the police have simply and uncritically accepted your brother's word on that without ever speaking to your husband, who would vigourously deny it.    (I can't make any better suggestion than that because, to be honest, I don't follow what has happened.  If you never authorised your brother to open this insurance policy at all then I don't understand why the police would place any importance at all on your husband being present at a meeting with your brother.  What did your husband's presence have to do with the insurance policy?  Even if he had been at such meeting (which you say he denies) then how could he authorise anything on your behalf?  None of it makes any sense to me and I can't see why the police would think it did.)   Challenge the police to explain to you why they believe there is insufficient evidence to pass this on to the CPS   I would follow the published complaints procedure of the police force in question and I would also send a copy to your local Police and Crime Commissioner.   I think the main problem here is that (despite what the nice woman PC may have suggested to you) the police have never considered you to be the victim.  You need to demonstrate to them via your complaint that you are the victim here.   One other question: is your husband and are your family supporting you through this, or are you going it alone?

This has been a long road to go down, with constant harassment by phone at home and work when they are not getting their own way.

 

Only go down this road if you are strong and believe in what you are doing. There have been times when the tension it was causing my wife almost made me give up.

 

It all started in 2003, whne because of illness our income dropped, the vultures started circling, The Bank of Scotland being one of them. Despite the CCCS being involved the soon passed the account onto Blair et al and defaulted me. Not that they told me about the latter, but thats another story.

 

When we got back on our feet, after selling our house, to pay some of the vultures off, I got into a repaymnet scheme, eventually paying £270 per month, it was crippling, not that they cared.

 

In June of this year I stumbled on this site, and thought in for a penny, in for a pound. I read the instructions and sent off this letter.

 

Blair Oliver and Scott

PO Box 66

(Via recorded delivery)

Dear Sir,

Re: Agreement reference

I am presently striving to organise my personal information and can find no reference to the above agreement that I am presently paying money into.

Could I ask that you supply me with a true copy of the agreement? I understand that this is my right under the legislation contained within section 77 (1) and section 78 (1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. I also understand that it is your obligation to provide me with a statement of account. I enclose a £1 postal order in payment of the statutory fee.

 

Since you are a Debt Collection Agency could I ask that you supply a signed true copy of the deed of assignment of the above referenced agreement? This is, I understand, an obligation, whether you are the original creditor or not, under section 189 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

I hope to hear from you within the statutory time limit.

Yours faithfully,

Mike 220359

Well I waited the statutory time, never heard a dicky bird, most unusual because they are like a dog with a bone.

 

So I grabbed the bull by the horns and stopped payment.

Then I started to get phone calls and quite alot of them, I must admit to have the red mist falling when I wrote this letter

 

Blair Oliver and Scott

PO Box 66

Rosyth

KY11 2WG

(Via recorded delivery)

 

Dear Sir,

 

Re: Agreement reference

 

This letter has also been sent to the Company Secretary, Blair Oliver & Scott Ltd, 8 North Bank Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2LP

Before I continue I wish to establish that I am not seeking to avoid responsibility for any debt that I may have or had, I am seeking to redress a wrong. I also offer my apologies for not following up my initial contact until now.

 

 

I wrote to you on the 26th June 2006 requesting a copy of the executed agreement under the Consumer Credit Act (1974). I also asked for a statement of account. A ‘*****’ at your address received the letter on the 27th June 2006. I also requested an executed deed of assignment documenting Blair Oliver & Scott’s involvement; this too has not been supplied.

In three months you have been unable to supply an agreement because no such agreement exists, indeed a ‘phone conversation with your call centre manager, *****, on the 22nd September 2006 confirmed that the Bank of Scotland cannot provide any documentation.

Consequently I do not acknowledge any debt to your company

 

As you will know your non-compliance with my request means that your company has committed an offence under Section 77 (4) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974, summarily punishable by a Level 4 fine on the standard scale.

A credit agreement that is not properly documented and signed by the customer is totally unenforceable under the Consumer Credit Act and is therefore a complete defence to any court claim that is issued. Please take note that any legal action you may contemplate will be vigorously defended and contested.

I also contend that the money that you have obtained from me has been unlawful since you have not provided me with any documentation to prove the contrary, and under common law you may not profit from an unlawful act.

Furthermore your actions arguably do not comply with the Office of Fair Trading’s (OFT) Debt Collection Guidelines of July 2003, in that you have ‘communicated with [me] in an inaccurate or misleading manner (section 2.1) by ‘presenting information in that it creates a false or misleading impression’ and ‘failing to provide [me] with information on the status of debts’.

 

 

Notwithstanding the above your operatives have sought to contact me on a number of occasions (approximately ten times) over the last few days, I would imagine regarding your Company’s viewpoint on the above now disputed agreement. I know of these attempts because of the recording received when using British Telcom’s 1471 facility. This intrusion into my privacy has caused a great deal of distress to my wife and myself, since because of The Data Protection Act (Data Protection Act) your operatives say they are not allowed to discuss matters with her, (more of the DPA later).

We now consider that you ‘phone calls constitute harassment and so from this date any further calls to me will be reported to the Police. In addition you are in breech of the OFT’s July 2003 guidelines in that you are wrongly pursing me contrary to Section 2.8(i). Incidentally, when Ms ***** was asked whether your company had been striving to contact me she said ‘no’ but she was going to place a note on my file that no ‘phone contact would be made until the matter was concluded’. Clearly she told me an untruth or the computerised call logger that she was examining was inaccurate. Since within an hour my wife had received two further calls from you, and I received another at 8.40pm, from a lady who said she represented Blair Oliver & Scott.

 

 

Another worrying facet of this whole case is the unlawful dissemination of my data by your company to a third party. Under the DPA I have principled rights in that

 

 

(Schedule I)

 

1. Personal data shall be processed fairly and lawfully.

2. Personal data shall be obtained only for one or more specified and lawful purposes, and shall not be further processed in any manner incompatible with that purpose or those purposes.

 

(Schedule II)

 

1. The subject has given his consent.

2. The processing is necessary –

a. For the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party.

 

I have recently conducted an audit of my personal credit reports supplied by Experian and Equifax. Within both files, an entry referenced as “Bank of Scotland” is lodged indicating a loan. This is recorded as “In Default” on the 27th February 2004. However, I note that files have been updated continually since then. Since I have had no contact with The Bank of Scotland I can only deduce that it is Blair Oliver & Scott that is updating my credit file without my consent or that your company is disseminating my information to a third party without my consent

 

The fact that you cannot provide me with a copy of the agreement negates any Notice of Default being served on me, as required by the conditions of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. Incidentally, I cannot recollect receipt of the said documentation. If the documentation were to be produced as you are aware the default notice cancels any original terms and conditions and as such cancels any right to share my information without my consent.

 

What I require.

1. I require you with immediate effect to ensure that all data held by you regarding the alleged agreement is removed from any and all Credit Reference Agency database.

2. Ensure that all data held by you regarding me and my family is destroyed.

3. Refund all monies paid to you by me since August 2004.

4. Ensure that no further telephone calls are made to me or my place of work.

5. Ensure that all correspondence is made in writing.

6. I require written confirmation of the above together with a quarterly statement that no data has been processed regarding me by you.

 

Failure to comply

  • Failure to comply with my request under the Data Protection Act 1998 will result in the matter being referred to the Information Commissioner.
  • Failure to comply with the requirements of the Consumer Credit Act will cause me to refer the matter to the Office of Fair Trading, and Trading Standards.
  • Failure to comply with the requirements Office of Fair Trading guidelines will lead to a report being submitted.
  • Continued telephone contact will generate a complaint to the police.
  • Failure to repay the paid sums shall cause me to report you to the OFT, Trading Standards and the Financial Services Authority.
  • If you fail to comply with any or all of the above I reserve the right to offer the experience to Consumer Interest media, I have just enrolled with BBC TV’s consumer watchdog database.
  • If you fail to comply with any or all of the above I reserve the right to take action against you without further contact.

I hope to hear from you within 12 working days from the date of this letter, failure to do so will be taken that you failed to comply with my request.

 

Yours faithfully,

I got a call at work from my wife who was scared stiff, I was really scared too, so I rang Blair up from work during my lunch hour. The girld didn't really know why I was ringing but took the time to read all that was on the monitor in front of her. Apprantly they had asked for the copy of the agreement seven times, she then went to her manager who was the same girl that I had spoken to in September.

 

She said that the account would be closed and I could disregard the letter.

 

I was numb but took them at their word.

 

Then the following arrived

 

(15th December)

Dear Sir/Madam

Acc. No. x

Balance due £2592.16dr

We refer to the above account.

Please could you telephone within the next seven days to discuss this matter further. Failure to comply with this request may result in further action being taken against you.

Please note that this matter require your urgent attention.

Yours faithfully,

 

This arrived two days before Xmas, but I managed to keep it away from my wife, because it would have ruined it for her. And then on the 28th December we recived this

 

(21st December)

Dear Sir/Madam

Acc. No. x

Balance due £2592.16dr

We write to you in connection with the above account number and with regards to the problems you have been experiencing, please accept our sincere apologise.

We can confirm that we have passed the account for closure and the remaining balance, noted above for write off. Again please accept our apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Yours faithfully,

 

That was it just like that, it was gone, all that worry, in a letter that had the syntax and spelling qualities of a seven year old. And sorry for the inconvenience! your having a laugh.

 

I realise that some of you may think that I have been rather immoral in getting the loan written off, but really what was written off was half the interest, interest that shouldn't have been added in the first place because they didn't get their paperwork right in the first place.

 

This won't be the end of the matter because of the oFT, TS and Information Commissioner, but what I hope is is that if you know that you are in the right, and believe it, and you know the law is on your side, you will win.

 

No for the rest of the bastards.

Bank of Scotland - MCOL filed 9 Jan for £1500

 

Bank of Scotland (for parents) - £5000 settled in full October 06

I have six different accounts with GE :o and I am owed charges back on all of them,

 

I also have MBNA/1 ST CREDIT claim going on too. Both are now in default re SAR and CCA compliance.

MBNA/1 ST CREDIT have had a charging order made against me and are seeking to apply to have the order made final.

 

So this thread has really made me happy !

 

Instead of hijacking your thread I think I should go start my own !

Mike, just as a matter of interest, did the charges and interest they made on your account exceed the balance by any chance?

 

If you retrieved your statements and worked it all out you may have had even more to come back - I might have been tempted to take a look and claim if theres anything over.

Funnily enough, I'm having the same thoughts at the moment with regard to this but I won't be posting anything 'til its all sorted out. There are too many 'guest' now monitoring this site, so I'll be keeping it under my hat until the time is right.

 

But I honestly don't think that this is the end of the matter by a long chalk.

 

Kind regards

 

Mike

If I've helped tip my scales

Mike well done on this work. I do not consider you at all immoral in getting your debt written off. I started off really thinking we should settle our debts and still do...but with these morally bankrupt organisations I soon realised it was a huge game, played out on the backs of the misery of their fellow man and all that was happening was that our fear is funding a rock n roll lifestyle for the money grabbing directors and their families of these DCAs.

Most of the people I have encountered via CAG are just decent folk who got into a mess for various reasons and when they neede help the original lender just washed their hands of them. Real villains are the foreign gangs stealing identities, corporate shysters and the financial institutions who are just coining it not someone on PAYE struggling to pay the ever rising tide of bills.

Look at it this way, you have paid hard earned money to the original lender, they will have used that, made a profit and then taken a law of averages approach to selling it cheap, writing a good part of it off to capital gains taxes I doubt they have lost anything at all. Look forward to the rest of the saga and you are giving inspiration to others cowering by the phone in fear.

Hear hear!!! I second that and may I add also that the key issue to consider if any of you are feeling in the slightest bit guilty is that the burden to uphold the law is on the lender and if the lender cannot conduct themselves so as to earn the right to their licenses and huge profits then it's their look out!

 

All they need to do is act responsibly and carry out their duties under the CCA, if they don't then that is entirely their loss! IMO
