Your right to think they can't do it Yoga, but they can as they are above the law;)

 

I would start a thread in the DCA forum for better advice.

 

There may be something in the templates hun,

 

Good luck.

 

EL, you say you've won a case? well done! I can't find a thread tho!

Hopefully it will be in your account by the end of tomorrrrow

Hi Caz!

 

Have you seen yours banked yet??!!

 

Have you managed to get to any of your crisp little spondoolies??!!!:D

Hee Hee!!

 

By the way, Woolwich/Barclays have until midnight tonight to file their defence for my £5000 (£6800 with interest!). Ive checked on-line tonight & theres nothing - however Im suuuuure that they will file their defence in the next 48 hours.

 

The courts seem to allow the banks to be rather lapse on this. You can rest assured that if one of us 'little people' tried to file our defence even a second later than normal, we would get hammered!!!! Hmpf!!:(

 

Thanks also Tipsy for your kind thoughts! Are you claiming with Barclays??

Hi Leccy Lemon,

 

Dont forget, updated SOC's in front of you before you call...

 

If youre stuck on what to say, how about this as an example:

 

contact the Litigation Team, Go through Krysta, asking to speak to the person who is handling your claim,

 

Start with referring to your claim number..........................

 

 

and the court date ............................

 

 

at ......................................court

 

 

 

being heard by District Judge ……….......................

 

Go on to say……

I realise from your defence that you do not agree with my legal analysis that the charges levied to my account amount to penalty clauses and are deemed unfair. I do however recognise the fact that the sum at issue between us is relatively modest and as such, it is not cost effect for either party to take the matter to trial. Therefore in order to avoid the inevitable time and cost associated with pursuing the claim to trial I am willing to settle the claim upon repayment of the charges applied to my account, together with statutory interest and costs totalling £xxx.xx.

Only once in receipt of cleared funds will I then discontinue all action against Barclays in connection with this claim

[[this is taken from THEIR agreement letter]]

 

 

 

They are a very helpful and polite team.

 

 

 

Everyone that has followed this advice is very pleased they did.

 

One thing to remember b4 contacting them is to have your updated figures in front of you and settle only with what you are happy with,

If they do arguing the toss which isnt very often simply say thank you for your time I think I'll let the judge decide goodbye, hang up and they will contact you back.

Hey Dar£n!!

 

Many thanks for your help - have just made the call!

 

A chap again checked the court date & said yes, of course we'd like to settle!!

 

They have said that as long as the figures tally up (!?) then the money will be in our account by next Tuesday!! We can have it by being put directly into our account that day or they will send a cheque.

 

Err, into the account please! That includes court fees, everything.

HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!

 

Dont like to say...WE WON really as I still feel a little nervous in case the figures dont tally for some reason!!

 

Wow thats £3000 that we reeally need right now - PHEW!!

 

I guess it a is a situation of:

 

WE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...Because they have said we will pay you back before going to court, & we will pay you back everything!!

 

Fantastic lot you all are - what a special, special bunch of supportive & just gorgeous friends. I LUVS YOU ALL!!!!:D

 

Love,

A rather Euphoric Leccy Lemoney today!!:D

Hi EL

Although I have never posted on your thread I have followed it with real interest and taken real inspiration from your journey.

I have just filed with mcol myself and am now at the cramming stage reading everything for court bundles and double checking everything to make sure I haven't missed anything.

I'm having a real problem with the judgement button on mcol at the moment, I keep making sure I have read the instructions correctly, I know, I know it's crazy but then if I wasn't a little crazy I don't think I would have taken this on!!!:D

Well done you

Beamie:)

Hi EL,

 

Congratulations on your win. What was the name of the guy dealing with your claim? Dino is dealing with mine, I've got court date 31st July so I'm going to phone him again this week. Hopefully he will be in the office this time.

 

Well done
