    • are all of these debt owners or were the original creditors aware of your current correct address??   bottom line ..have you moved since taking them out??  
    • AFIAK....there is no such thing as the 6+3yrs rule...………..   the 3yrs only runs from when you reasonably became aware...   now if the creditor wrote to you at the correct address..then so be it... if they didn't then the 3yrs has never started..?????    
    • Hello No need to apolgise, thanks for taking the time to help. So from the above do you think I should go back to them now with that information or just go direct to the FOS?
    • Hi Egawe and welcome to CAG   Firstly, can you please confirm the amount of the suggested admin fee as £12 is lower than previously and normally charged by Harlands/CRS.   Send the letter to Harlands offering to pay the missed fee but no more. As DX says, post the letter.   If they fail to accept the offer, cancel the DD mandate via your bank. And if they use the DD mandate to take any amount in excess of the monthly fees, you can reclaim this using the DD Guarantee Scheme.      
    • Hi All,   I hope I'm posting in the right place.     I have about £40k in unpaid debts (cards, loans etc).   They are pretty much all over £5k and nearing the 6 year since default time frame...   The first is into the final 12 months now... Capquest... £11k, they own the debt.   Ive been expecting collection efforts to step up as the SB line approaches with them all.     The situation is that I could pay these but call me morally bankrupt... Id rather eat you know what at this stage.   If any of the so called creditors look into me they'll see that I'm worth chasing.     Having nearly got to the 6 year since default period I won't allow a judgement to show for another 6 years.   How likely are they to try and get one?     With debts over £5k is small claims not an option for them and will it cost them more to take this to court?     My question is this....... They are offering obviously settlements for less.   Capquest 40% of £11K... Id hate to ignore all this and end up having to pay the full amount as they take it to court.... How likely are they to do this?     If they do will they still take a settlement when proceedings have commenced? (Hence nothing to lose by waiting).   Companies in question are: Intrum Uk Ltd Cabot Credit Management Group Ltd Aarrow Global Ltd    I just notice as I type that Capquest are not noted on my credit file and must be part of Arrow Global.... They have also made subtle threat on their latest letter with the wording "Our additional enquiries have indicated that you are a homeowner at the above address."   Most of the defaults were around 2014 for agreements taken out 2008 -20012.   Original creditors... Halifax, Tesco, Virgin Money.     In Northern Ireland so PAP doesn't apply I think.   Any advice appreciated. Regards Diedebtsdie

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

Add the interest at this stage only if you intend to claim Contractual, or Interest charged on overdrafts directly attributable to charges.

 

If the interest you are referring to is the Statutory 8% 'Judicial' interest then this should be omitted until court stages.

 

Don't know what address you used to start with, so can't comment.

Threads merged - please stick to one thread.

 

Your signature can be changed via your User CP (link at top of forum).

 

The other questions are very basic and you need to read the FAQs and step-by-step instructions thoroughly. In fact, you should have done this before even sending the first letter.

 

Finally, your title says Bank of Scotland, but you have posted in Royal Bank of Scotland forum - which is correct?

Pretty sure you just stick to your schedule and don't let their delaying tactics affect you. Dig your heels in mate, it's your money they've stolen from you...

CC, you have 14 days now before you need to file a claim in the courts (assuming you don't get offered a settlement in between). If you haven't got much patience, I'd advise you to wile the hours away reading through the court process NOW rather than asking lots of questions once you have filed.

 

Hopefully you will see the benefit from doing the time now and getting yourself prepared. You are, after all, taking on a quite a large company....

We are still processing your claim, within the FSA rules, which gives us 8

Ignore their timescales. This is just delaying tactics!!!

 

You told them they have 14 days so that's it! Once they're up, on to the next stage!

Fraid I can't really, never got as far as court so don't really know. There are plenty of other helpful peeps around who will surely be able to answer. It might be worth heading over to the FAQ / Template sections as there will be informatio on filing your claim in there.

Actually reading your question again, I'm not really sure what you are getting at? What do you mean how do you go on with court costs and solicitor?
