Hello everyone,

Its my second battle againts unlawful bank charges...Today i've received my statements from Judith Mucklow, Legal Department, Creation Financial Services Limited....and guess what some of them are missing (about 6 months) and the most important: when in 2004 i couldn't even pay minimum monthly payments they sold my account to bailiffs(do not remember the name) outstanding amount was: £305.....something...and these statements are missing..and what i only have for that period is the: Amount received-£305.27..:))))))

 

Otherwise there are some £10 charge and £22 charges...

So i am sending tomorrow NON Complience letter back to her .They still have 17 days to supply me missing statements...

 

You are more than welcome to add you advise, comments....I haven't seen any Creation Finance threads as yet..unless i'd missed tham:))

 

Every advise would be highly appreciated:)))

 

regards:)))

Hi,

 

I've just started my claim with Creation too although I haven't started a thread yet! I sent my SAR 29.12.06 & LBA on 9.2.07 as no statements received. Received a letter from Judith Mucklow on 21.2.07 to say no record of receiving my request (letter was sent rec delivery & £10 chq cashed on 5.1.07!) I decided to give her a call yesterday & she was really nice!!!!:o She located the £10 which had been credited to my o/s account in error....as it was their error she's waived the fee & advised info will be on the way to me on Monday. I don't usually speak to people on the phone but she was very helpful so if you want to speed things up why not give her a call before sending the non compliance letter....she might just send them straight away...just a thought. Her direct line is 0121 702 4858

 

Good luck!

Thank you Villafan,

 

Glad you are on a same boat as me:)))

 

I had 2 replies from her..very quick..very impressed:)) Unfortunatly, not as accurate(same in your case)...they are all nice( i am not a bad person as well) but we are on opposite sides with them:)))))

They have now 16 days to supply me with the full ammount of statements.

If you are unable to deal with this request, you should immediately forward it to the person within your organisation responsible for Data Protection. If you do not provide the information requested within the given time limits (final date 12th March 2007) under current Law, I shall have no choice but to forward all information to the information commissioners office.

 

I will be filing in the County Court on the morning of 15th March for Non Compliance and damages, if I do not receive the documentation requested by 5pm 12rd March 2007.

 

 

I just wanted to let them know i am not kidding or joking...They multiply my charges in 2004 3 times when i din't pay on time, sent debt collectors on me....etc..and fale to send me the statements for that period...

 

 

I am wishing you good luck as well:)))

 

Regards,

 

Maria

Hi, interested to read your thread.

 

But....

To be fair to Creation (Judith Muckow), I would recommend that you check your statements again carefully, before being too precipitous with your comments. Initially I too thought there were statements missing but on closer inspection, realised that some statements were merely provided in a different format.

 

Please keep us informed if they were actually missing!!!!!:)

My Creation account has been in a DMP since October 2005. They have responded to my SAR with statements. They then followed that by an unsigned default notice which asked me to pay £0.00!!

I shall post my response once I have composed it but any advice would be gratefully recieved.:mad:

Hi there, I'm just starting getting charges back from creation/aka adams store cards and I wanted to know two things. First, do they charge for back dated statements. I have kept about half of them. Secondly, one of the charges is CPP default merchant. £20 aprox. Any idea what this is? Any help would be grand. :confused:

hello Southendgame,

 

you can find the Data Protection Act SAR in the library 1. Data Protection Act, Subject Access Request letter - List of charges ..print this letter and attach the check of £10(this is all you need to pay for ALL your statements)... you can amend the letter and ask them what is

CPP default merchant
..I really don't know....never had anything like that in my statements....it notmally could take up to 40 days....

 

thank use a spreadsheet ( i have used a contactual intrest one from Vampiress chambers VAMPIRESS'S CHAMBER )....and work out how much your claim is for

Then send a Prelim(copy in same library) Letter - Preliminary approach for repayment

......and wait for the respond:)))

 

Read the Bank Templates Library ..this is what i did when started:)))

 

 

good luck and keep us updated:)))

Re: Account Number: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

 

 

 

Response to settlement offer.

 

Dear Ms Macklow

 

Thank you for your letter dated 23/03/2007

 

I respectfully decline your offer of settlement and request, one final time, that you return to me all charges imposed on this account, totalling £308.30

 

In order to avoid Litigation against you, I am prepared to temporarily accept the sum offered as partial settlement on the clear understanding that the remainder is paid within the next 10 days. Failure to comply with this request will result in legal action against you for full recovery, as detailed in my Letter Before Action.

 

If you do not accept my conditions for acceptance, or you do not respond within 10 days till 10th of April 2007, I shall return the payment to you. For the avoidance of doubt, I wish to stress that I do not accept your offer under the terms stated in your letter.

 

 

I trust this clarifies my position.

 

 

Yours faithfully

 

 

Itsmeandonlyme

 

Basicaly...that's it....If still no reply..will send thecheque back......I so wanted to cash it in..but i also want a full amount..it's hard to be strong.....

Terry,

 

write them a letter include:

 

am of the opinion the law is clear on liquidated damages and that, irrespective of your belief to the contrary and regardless of any agreement that I may have signed, the payment of excessive damages will be interpreted as a penalty and therefore the charges you imposed will be unenforceable and should I be forced to litigate, judgement granted in my favour.

 

The fact that your fees do not differ significantly from those charged by other companies operating within the Financial Services industry is entirely redundant however I am most interested in your comment regarding my responsibility for those fees. Given your clear and unambiguous statement that these fees represent the costs to your business and that you have incurred them as a result of my breaching our contract I am sure you will be happy to demonstrate this by letting me have a full breakdown of the costs to which you have been put as a result of my breaches in order to reassure me that your penalties really do reflect your costs.

 

Charges are not legally enforceable if they are penalties. Penalty clauses in contracts in English (and Scottish) law for breach of contract are not legal if the penalty exceeds the actual cost of the breach of either party. The law relating to penalties has been established through case law. The cases date back to the nineteenth century and the courts have been consistent in the way that they have ruled on penalty clauses

 

I am mildly amused by your penultimate paragraph and your apparent misunderstanding of contract law and seemingly deliberate attempt to complicate what is a straightforward issue.

and also ask to send you an original agreement..i want to have a look...Under CCA 1974...you have to include a cheque for £1...the template of the request you can find in library....

if you need more help let me know...

Regards,

Maria
