    • nothing you can do can product against the very rare judge lottery syndrome.
    • not sure why you added the blue line I've highlighted? that's no in the we gave you.   as for your question... PRAC's roboclaim computer knows when the account was taken out, after all it raised the claim and checked everything carefully first before issuing the request via northants bulk courts equally inept roboclaim computer... 
    • I've been researching in preparation of compiling my particularised defence/WS.    I'm none too happy that some judges still seem to be siding with DCAs and seemingly brushing aside anything that we have assumed to be "necessary" for DCAs to have a winning case.    Reading a recent "summary" from another poster (another thread with case similar to mine - very old, illegible application form, no default notice, reliance on their own software to prove it was ever sent) and the judgment made in favour of the DCA and even suggesting that there was no "agreement with the DCA, they simply owned the debt, not the agreement"  Makes me very nervous.    Especially if cases like this will be judged on "probability" - the probability that if I signed the original application form, then I must have taken out the credit card and racked up the alleged debt as shown in statements enclosed in their WS (and dated some ten years later).   Is it ok to post some "evidence" I've found from elsewhere?    This is in line with my fears that regardless of how hard one tries to rebut the "lack of evidence" produced by DCAs for chasing these very old "alleged" debts, it does appear to come down to the luck of what judge you get on the day and how much they can be swayed by the DCA solicitor.    A quick Google search produced the following - from one case - this related to a credit agreement - which resulted in someone being made bankrupt - that person appealed the bankruptcy order on the grounds of defective credit agreement and default notice and this was the appeal judge's decision:   The necessary formalities for the entry into the regulated consumer credit agreement (which related to the debt in issue) were not complied with; The default notice served in respect of that credit agreement was defective.   The First Ground The Appellant argued that she did not receive the terms and conditions when she entered into the credit agreement and, accordingly, section 61 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (“CCA”) had not been complied with and the agreement could not be enforced. The agreement had been entered in 1995 and, whilst it had provided a microfiche copy of the front page of the application, the Respondent had been unable to provide a copy of the terms.   Despite the terms not being produced, the District Judge had found that, in the circumstances, it was very likely that such terms existed and would have been provided to the Appellant when she entered into the Agreement. Mr Justice Mann held that this was a finding that the District Judge was entitled to make.   Further, Mr Justice Mann found that it was implicit from the District Judge’s findings that she considered that the terms and conditions not only existed but had been subscribed to by the Appellant’s signature and, consequently, the requirements of section 61 CCA were fulfilled. Mr Justice Mann held that this was also a justifiable finding which should not be interfered with on appeal.   The Second Ground The Appellant also argued that the default notice upon which the Respondent relied did not comply with the Consumer Credit (Enforcement, Default and Termination Notice) Regulations 1989 because it stated the full balance of the account rather than the total of the missed payments. The Respondent argued that, as a result of the missed payments, it was contractually entitled to the entire balance subject to the service of the appropriate notice, a requirement which was fulfilled by the default notice itself and, consequently, the sum required to remedy the breach was the entire amount.   Mr Justice Mann agreed with the Respondent and the District Judge, holding that: “If by the time the default notice is served circumstances have arisen which entitle the lender to recover not merely sums which might be regarded as arrears, by which I assume is meant accumulated minimum payments, but also the whole of the sum, then they are entitled to claim that sum, and the sum to require to remedy the breach for non-payment of that sum is the payment of the whole sum due. The bank is not confined, at that stage, to claiming merely the amount of arrears if it has an accrued contractual right to have the whole of the sum.”   Do judgments like these not mean that a lot of what you guys do on here (and for which I and many others are VERY grateful) somewhat redundant. What is happening to judges just accepting "well, the terms must have been there if you signed it" -    Feeling quite nervous now.
    • we know it wasn't done to avoid enforcement we understand completely. but that doesn't take from away the fact that it happened   you can't appeal the pcn's on the basis that 'it was not his vehicle to levy upon'. the law clearly states otherwise.          
    • here is a question for you, is yu house divided up into a retail/business area  and domestic area for business rates purposes? If not why on earth are you paying business water rates? ceertainly not for tax purposes as you can claim any legit expense without having to reclassify your home as a business premises. i would be stopping this nonsense and goping back to whatever water supplier is the domestic one for your area. there is stuff all they can do to get the £40 from you whan you do that.

So far just a standard printed letter from Cap One.They wanted an up to date financial statement and are now 'considering further action' and may issue a default etc etc etc. They can get knotted and i'll wait for TS to reply to my complaint about them sending me an application form instead of a CCA.

 

Also, and this one isn't so good, Cahoot have come up with a CCA after months of ignoring the request. Interestingly this is a week after informing TS. Not a coincidence i think. Anyway, it looks ok and in line with being properly executed (as was Barclays) so i think i am stuffed on this one and not sure what to do about it but always interested and greatful in what others here think...

Just had the post in. Capital One again. Usual printed rubbish.."We have not yet received the income expenditure form that we sent to you. If we don't receive this in the next 14 days we will assume that you no longer need our specialist help in managing your credit card"

What specialist help have i ever had from them anyway!

 

And from HFC: "Thank you for your recent (8th May!) contact informing me of your complaint. Your comments are extremely valuable to me and I am very concerned that you are unhappy with HFC Bank.

 

I am personally addressing the issues that you have raised and will carry out an investigation of the situation on your behalf. I will examine the background carefully and reply to you shortly.

Today. From MBNA.. they have sold the other debt to Link Financial. Still waiting for their response to my complaint due by tomorrow!

 

and from Trading Standings - West Yorkshire re Halifax.

 

"Thank you for your recent communication regarding the above company.

 

The matter has been referred to our Fair Trading section.

 

You are correct in stating that, whilst your request remains unaddressed, the debt cannot be enforced. However, once the creditor complies with the requirement, the transfer of the account to a debt collector is a distanct possibility.

 

Yours sincerely, Christopher Frank"

They sure do don't they Pliny! Obviously this letter i sent on the 24th of May to B,O & S was totally ignored:

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

In reference to your recent communication dated 22nd may 2007 and regarding the above account I must inform you that currently Halifax are in breach of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 in exceeding the statutory time limit in regard to a CCA request.

 

The request, in accordance with the Consumer Credit Act 1974 [sections 77−79] contained the statutory fee of £1, was sent by recorded delivery 20th March 2007. The cheque for £1 (No. 000565) having been cashed 4th April 2007.

 

Halifax have, since the 6th April 2007 been in default, (non-compliance of the above request) and since the 6th May have committed a criminal offence in not supplying a properly executed agreement making the alleged debt unenforceable with or without a court order.

 

My last communication to Halifax dated 8th May clearly stipulated that unless i heard from them in regard to the above request within 10 days of the date of that letter i would be reporting their breach of the Consumer Credit Act to the relevant authorities.

 

I am currently in the process of compiling such a report to the Information Commissioner's Office, Trading Standards and Office of Fair Trading.

 

I therefore do not acknowledge any debt to your company and suggest that if you require further information on this matter that you contact Halifax directly for clarification.

 

I am going to write a strong letter to Halifax today regarding the passing of the debt to B,O & S. Nothing heard yet from TS re my complaint with Halifax yet. Or for that matter a reply from MBNA which they said would be with me by the 12th June.

Thinking fo sending this to Cahoot and Barclays who both came uo with the CCA. Although Barclays did it in 3 weeks and Cahoot took almost 3 months. Notice that i acknowledge the documents they sent, but i don't admit they are compliant:

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for the recent documents which i received relating to the CCA request sent by recorded delivery dated 19th March 2007.

 

Unfortunately my circumstances have, as you are fully aware, not changed as a full time carer for my 71 yr old mother. In recent months you have received from myself several times over a great deal of information relating to my personal circumstances, including level of total debt, financial statements and copies of benefit entitlement letters (Carers Allowance, Income Support, Housing Benefit).

 

The communication between us seems not to have moved forward at all since first communicating my difficult situation to you in November 2006 and I am no longer prepared or able to continue along these lines with no progress or accommodation being reached due to the long term and stressful nature of my situation.

 

I therefore suggest you take me to court at your earliest convenience to resolve this matter once and for all.

 

For your interest my argument will be:

 

* To show my honest and faithful written communication to Cahoot over the last 7 months with little compromise or sympathy from Cahoot regarding my status as a Full Time Carer.

 

* To ask that the interest and charges that have been applied to the debt are justified in detail to the Judge

 

* To point out that the documents relating to the original CCA request were 10 weeks from the date of receipt to the date of delivery and thereby Cahoot committed a criminal offence under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

I look forward to receiving your prompt reply,

From HFC Bank:

 

I am writing further to your recent complaint, I am sorry to learn that you remain dissatisfied with your previous communication with Sarah Smith. The details of your complaint have now been escalated to me in accordance with HFC Bank's complaint handling procedure. Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to you.

 

Following a thorough investigation regarding the details of your complaint, this final response letter is now being issued.

 

The above account is a credit card account which was opened in June 2004. The current credit limit is £4650 and your balance as at today's date is £5023.

 

On 16th March 2007 (actually 12th Feb) you wrote to this office and advised that due to financial difficulties you were unable to repay the balance outstanding and requested that we wrote off the debt (First correspondense Nov 2006)

You also made a request under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 to have a copy of the agreement and a breakdown of the interest and charges which may have been applied to your account.

 

My colleague, Mr J Siggers responded 20th April and for ease of reference I have enclosed a copy of his letter.

 

On 27 April 2007 you replied to this letter and advised that you did not consider the copy of the agreement which we had enclosed with our letter to be acceptable. You advised that it was a copy of the application form therefore pre-contractual and requested a true copy of the agreement.

 

My colleague, Sarah Smith responded on 2 May 2007 and again for ease of reference I have enclosed a copy of her reply.

 

Your letter dated 8 May 2007 was received into this office on 17th May. You requested a properly executed agreement and not a pre-contractual copy of the application form and therefore, as this has not been supplied, you advised that we are in breach of our legal duties under the Consumer Credit act 1974.

 

The above account is a credit card agreement therefore, as detailed in the agreement, a copy of which I have enclosed with this letter, upon signing the appication form you were made aware that, and I quote from the application form "This is a credit agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974. Sign it only if you want to be legally bound by it's terms" You have signed the form and dated it 3rd June 2004, thereby agreeing to the terms and conditions of the card.

 

In summary, we do not feel that we have acted incorrectly with reagrd to this matter and you will remain liable for the debt.

 

We recognisethat this is not the response that you were hoping for. Should you wish to take this matter further, please contact the Financial Ombudsman Service.

You now have six months from the date of this letter to contact the Financial Ombudsman service and we have enclosed a leaflet for your information.

Dear Mr x,

Finally a reply from MBNA:

 

Thank you for your letter dated 12 May 2007.

 

I write in reference to the default and sale of your account to Link Financial. We responded to an earlier complaint you made in jan 2007, advising that as a courtesy we had suppressed your fees and interest, and that we would need a larger payment to be able to set up your account on a reduced payment plan to avoid a default being registered against you.

 

As set out clearly in your terms and conditions we were within our rights to do this; therefore, we will not be recalling your account from Link Financial, nor will we be removing the default from your credit file.

 

Thank you once again for taking the time to contact us..... if we do don't hear from you within eight weeks of the date of this letter we will assume that the matter is closed.

 

Joanne Johnson

Customer Advocate Office Manager

 

The point is the account was in dispute and they had not complied with the CCA (s) but they sold it anyway. It was the kind of answer i was expecting!

my answer to MBNA:

 

Thank you for your letter dated 11 June 2007.

 

In reference to the selling of the alleged debts to Link Financial and other matters included in your recent letter you seem to have ignored the detail of my previous correspondence regarding several clearly specified points. For ease of reference:

 

19 April 2007 I sent a request for the Credit Card Agreements under the terms of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (S77/79).

 

8 May 2007 I received a letter stating that one of the alleged debts (whose account number i did not recognise on the letter) had been sold to Link Financial. Up to this point I had not received any documentation relating to the CCA request of 19 April therefore putting the account in dispute and rendering the alleged debt unenforceable.

 

On the 12th May I wrote to Stewart Johnson raising my concerns that no CCA documentation had be forthcoming, stating that a debt cannot be sold to a third party if the account is in dispute and asking, again, that the CCA’s be complied with or written confirmation that MBNA were unable to do so.

 

On the 18 May 2007 i received documentation in reference to my original request under the Consumer Credit Act. My reply to this dated 19 May stated that i did not consider those documents to constitute a properly executed agreement and that the alleged debts should not be sold while an account is in dispute.

 

On the 7 June 2007 i received a letter stating that a debt had been sold to Link Financial and again, with an account number i did not recognise.

 

As you will clearly see MBNA have not acted properly in regard to this matter or given a satisfactory explanation for the delay in supplying any documentation relating to a properly executed agreement or supplied a satisfactory answer as to the legality of selling a debt to a third party while an account is in dispute.

 

Therefore, a report will be compiled and sent to Trading Standards and the Financial Ombudsman and as a consequence the accounts are still formally in dispute and I do not acknowledge any debt to MBNA or any third party and will await the outcome of any investigations by the above mentioned organisations.

To TS-Chester.

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

I wish to report a breach of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (Sections 77-79) in relation to a Consumer Credit Act request that has not been complied with by MBNA Europe Bank Ltd.

 

The request in relation to account numbers *********** and ********* were sent 19th April 2007.

 

8 May 2007 I received a letter stating that one of the alleged debts (whose account number i did not recognise on the letter) had been sold to Link Financial.

 

A follow up letter dated 12th May 2007 to Stewart Johnson (Assistant Vice President) reminded MBNA of their legal obligations in supplying a properly executed agreement and to state that while an account is in dispute a debt cannot be enforced or sold to a third party.

 

I eventually received documentation from MBNA on the 18th May 2007 in response to the original CCA request which was a jumble of paper work: application form, one statement and terms and conditions unrelated to the period of application of the above card accounts and in my view did not constitute properly executed agreements as is required under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

My reply dated 19th May 2007 was to inform MBNA Bank of their error in sending such inadequate non-compliant documentation; to state that MBNA were in possession of the CCA requests and had not complied with them when the alleged debt was sold to link Financial; and that a debt should not be sold while an account is in dispute.

 

On the 7 June 2007 i received a letter stating that a debt had been sold to Link Financial and again, with an account number i did not recognise.

 

MBNA’s reply dated 11 June contained their refusal to remove a default from my credit file or to revoke the selling of the alleged debts to Link financial and contained no response as to my previous and numerous communication to be supplied with a properly executed agreement for the above mentioned accounts.

 

It is my understanding that while the CCA request has not been complied with within the statutory time frame that an account is then in dispute and legally unenforceable and that the creditor is then in Default.

 

I also understand that while an account is in dispute that a creditor cannot pass or sell a debt to a third party or issue a Default on a consumers credit file and since I sent the CCA request I have had no satisfactory explanation from MBNA regarding the failure to supply a properly executed agreement/s.

 

I ask that you investigate these breaches by MBNA and enclose copies of letters sent to MBNA dating from the original CCA request of 19 April 2007.

 

Please write to the above address if your require further information.

 

Yours sincerely, Me

First reply from the Local TS re Mint asking for permission to share my details with them. Also i sent the CCA's from Barclays and Cahoot to see what she thinks of them. All done by email so should get a reply faster than usual. Hope it's favourable, at least in regard to Mint!

From TS - torbay:

 

Dear Mr x

 

I have examined the Barclays and Cahoot attachments to your email and can verify that they appear to be copies of 'executed agreements' creditors are obliged to provide in response to a consumer's request under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

From your previous email I see that you have also finally received the requested agreement from Mint. I have forwarded the details of your complaint to the Home Authority Trading Standards who will be able to deal with the time delay of them responding to your request and advise them accordingly.

 

Kind regards

 

Time delay? They were over the 12 days but under the 30. The issue here and rasied in my complaint was the content of the CCA!
