    • and more positive change From next year, mobile phone, paid television and broadband companies must inform customers of any price rises at the point of sale. The changes, ordered by Ofcom, will come into force on 17 January and mean that any mid-contract price rises must be given “in pounds and pence” and in a “clear and comprehensible” way.   Taken a change of government to do it after years of bluster about it eh?   Mobile phone companies banned from hiking prices mid-contract based on inflation WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK The new year plan ensures providers are transparent on prices at the point of sale  
    • Could he/ his partner set up a new internet bank account?  In his name ? It depends which country, I imagine. Most UK banks want proof of address and ID, probably more. If your friend/partner can use the house address and provide bills that could help. You would need to look at various online banks and see what their requirements are. Or there are expat accounts but I haven't looked closely at how they work. Could I then get his pension diverted to that new account?  That would at least cover some costs  ( ie epc/ storage) I'd have thought the DWP would pay to a new account, as long as the person they're authorised to deal with asks them and provides details. The international pensions people in Newcastle are pretty helpful.
    • HB - he has certainly given me a challenge ! I set a plan in motion. A refinance plan that would have enabled me to take time to sell one asset and sort out another for him.   The bank account blockage has hindered the plan.  His partner seems to think I can do everything w/o paying anyone for anything.  I don't mind helping - but it's not normal to clear out 2 properties, organize storage or sale of possessions, get properties ready for sale/ rent - w/o being paid.  He has the money to pay for things and services - and for my help - but the blockage prevents that. If the refinance plan could still be actioned then at least I would have some time to sell one asset.  Could he/ his partner set up a new internet bank account?  In his name ? Could I then get his pension diverted to that new account?  That would at least cover some costs  ( ie epc/ storage)
    • It's a shame that your friend didn't take care of this while he had capacity and before he left the country, isn't it? He seems to have made your mission impossible. HB

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Emily send the Subject Access Request (SAR) to the bank and the Consumer Credit Act request to Cabot. You will need to send £10 for the SAR and £1 for the CCA. The CCA is perhaps the most important as it is such a long time since Cabot "bought" this debt. Also when they buy a debt they cannot add charges so that is an unlawful activity.

Ypou need to find out how much of the debt was penalty charges and claim it back plus interest. However you also need to see a full, true, legible copy of the original credit agreement (and not a copy of the application form) signed by yourself and the bank/credit card company.

You should also have been asked for your agreement by the DCA (CaboT) to process your data and they should provide you witha deed of assignment (saying they have bought your debt) and copies of statements. Without any of these they cannot claim this debt and you can sue them for return of all your payments as well as the interest and the penalty charges.

You will find copies of these letters in the Templates section. Hope this helps.

i have just post a thread and noticed yours.

cabot finance are the people phoning me. at first they said they were working for halifax but after some enquiries i found they had bought the debt from halifax. i don,t know how much for. the original debt was for £1900 and they offered me a settlement figure of £1200 so i expect they bought the debt for a lot less then original sum.

Search the Cabot threads on here. It is very interesting. There is a growing dedicated group of us challenging them. Follow advice given to Emily as well. It's difficult to find out how much these companies pay for these debts but it has been said as little as 10 pence in the £. In otherwords they may have bought your debt for £120 or so. Let them prove they have a claim on it.

One question that i need to ask did you miss any payments.

 

The reason I ask this is these companies can apply interest all the time no regular payments are being made. All the time payments are being made Companies are allowed to accrew the interest in the background on a daily basis but not apply it. The reason for this is it is an "incentive" to keep you paying. interest should not be charged over the amount of 12% by a third party creditor (recommendation by the OFT (Office of Fair Trading)) .

 

 

However I understand that you was paying the debt since 1999. However if you missed one month they are within their rights to apply this interest.

This arguement can be resolved quite simply as I did when it happened to me I called them up and put my case forward and they reduced the interest for me.

 

It is up to what way you wish to go about this but you have already admitted you owe the monies to them by paying since 1999. I did it like this and it worked.

I would have to query this in relation to Cabot as they repeatedly state that they are not the creditor, be it third party or otherwise...

 

Please follow Rhia's advice, send them a SAR and a CCA request. You are legally entitled to this information.

Who's that trip, trapping on the bridge?

Cabot? Hmmm!

 

They talk to much and have nothing to say.

He didn't come looking for trouble, but trouble came looking for him.

When the smoke clears, it just means he's reloading.

Im sorry maybe you have missed the point,

 

SAR would only be relevant to you if disputing the whole debt, and from what i can tell that is your answer every tiny little query in this site. I joined this site to try and help all you ungrateful (and i quote) "feckers"

 

To be honest If this is the response i get so be it but you all know you spent the money and you all know you owe the money for crying out loud no one put a gun to your head and made you sign a contract.

 

In some cases yes people have been treated unfairly but come on have you all really been treated unfairly.

 

And for your information I do NOT work for Cabot but I do have many years of Financial Law experience. Your loss, I was gonna try and help you instead of SAR SAR SAR SAR SAR as every little answer.

 

Have fun

I wasn't going to respond, but I feel it is my duty as an ungrateful fecker with a great deal of personal knowledge and experience of Cabot, to respond.

This particular person has made requests to both the Original Creditor and to Cabot for information relating to her account. Both have refused. As a person with

I do have many years of Financial Law experience.

 

I am sure you will understand and appreciate that she has the legal right to this information. A SAR (a Subject Access Request) affords her that right to this information and to all other personal data held by the Data Controller.

 

On this basis, recommending that she made a SAR request is good advice that she should follow.

The above statement clearly demonstrates the contempt you hold for the people that you are reportedly willing to help. I am sure you will appreciate my confusion in relation to this contradiction. I would strongly urge you to take the time to read more of these threads. This will help you understand that in fact a great number of people have been unfairly treated by Cabot.

 

Please take a few moments to read my own thread, which documents my struggle with Cabot

a bit of advice please!!

 

am new to this site so hello to all!

 

can anyone advise if a collection agency can collect on a debt already having been handled by another?

heres my tale.

 

a lovely company called jbdr in sept 07 harrassed me to put it mildly , for an alleged credit card debt.

this went on till in dec 07 i asked for a signed copy of the original agreement plus statement of account.

no reply was received within the legal time limits.

then in april this year cabot contacted me for payment of this alleged debt originally with jbdr.

i wrote to them explaining jbdr had the original debt and did not respond within the time limit.also i offered to forward proof of all correspondence with jbdr including copies of proof of signatures at jbdr shoeing they had received everything.

 

now, at the beginning of july cabot write and tell me they are the legal owner of this alleged debt, are they? and did cabot have the legal right to sell this on to cabot?

any ideas?

It's not up to you CF to furnish proof that you have paid, it is up to them to do the obverse.

 

There is only one letter you need to write and that is to ask them to prove you owe. Don't spend £10 on an SAR or £1 on a CCA, they cannot just say you owe me pay, they have to give proof.

Cabot bought my credit card debt from Opus Cards, without my knowledge and without documentation. I requested that they continue the same arrangement that I had with Opus, i.e. to freeze the interest and pemalty payments, and accept an affordable monthly amount from me.

They accepted my monthly payment, but I have minimal information from them regarding account management and it seems that further interest is accruing.

Is it legal for them simply to take over this debt without my agreement and be able to change agreed conditions unilaterally?

You should have received the goodbye/hallo letters from both Cabot (who usually send them both out under some kind of arrangement with the card holder) and from the creditor. These are known as the Notice of Assignment. If you didn't they are in trouble.

 

Sadly can't spend much time on Cabot these days as I have bigger fish to fry and have already spent far too much of my life on these dregs. There are plenty on here who will guide you.

 

Good luck.
