I would keep paying especially if you have a payment agreement. Any money you get back should come to you. Its up to you if you use it to pay off cabot financial or not.


If you stop paying cabot financial may start chasing you for the money in full and it could get messy.

As I haven't seen you post on the Cabot forum yet, I thought I'd just mention something here.


If it's Cabot who are chasing you, then whoever has taken over who is irrelevant. Cabot don't collect for anybody other than themselves, as they buy the debt.


If I were you, I wouldn't be so hasty in paying this amount to clear it off. You don't say what the original amount was, but £67/month for 8 years is nearly £6500.


Please start a thread about this so we can see where you're at and we can get stuck in to help.

If you want to CCA them use leter N from the templates library and send £1.


The tenner is for a SAR request, which if you word it properly would include all contracts anyway so might be worth considering.

  • Barclays: WON!!! It took four months but was totally worth it!
  • Cabot: I'm still waiting for an enforcable agreement, more than a year after requesting it. Go on, Uncle Ken, take me to court if you dare. You know you want to!
  • Elephant.co.uk: VICTORY - they admitted there was no debt!
  • Ashbourne Management (gym membership): Finally got my default removed and out-of-court settlement; I'm not finished with them yet!

<--- If I've been helpful please remember the scales ;)

Hi All,

I am a newbie here and wondering if anybody can assist me, I had an associates visa card and CITI then rebranded it, I sent a letter to CITI at the end of May regarding the PPI and that I felt I had been missold it.

I recieved a reply dated the 2nd July saying they were looking into it, then I recieved another letter dated the 4th July saying that I had ticked the box on the application form therefore they had not missold it, I remember quite clearly ringing up the old ass office in Chester and asking them what it covered, I was told that it covered me for all illness and injury and would recover the repayments.

I have asked for a copy of the application form, what wories me is that when I telephoned on the 4th July I was told that the card was still active as I had reported it stolen! which was a shock to me as I hadnt and the account hadnt been used for at least four years also the PPI was still active on the account.

Is this a usualk tactic of CITI just to say no and does anybody have any advice regarding the tick in the box issue

many thank
