SB Bryan Carter

 

My partner has a debt with Littlewoods with which she is paying with IQOR , she has recently received a letter from Bryan Carter of Weybridge claiming that they not have the debt , this was checked with IQOR who also claim that they have the debt , despite repeated contact with Bryan Carter giving details of who we are already paying we are getting nowhere , she has stopped paying IQOR until it has been resolved which IQOR is happy with , she doesnt mind paying , just who too ?
She
has now recently received a CCJ from Bryan Carter for non payment , which we will be disputing.

I have since found out that Bryan Carter has ceased trading in Feb 07 , and that yourselves need to know if they are still claiming that they are , all there letterheads are stating Bryan Carter , should they still be trading under this name ??

Regards

Phill ,

keep your head when talking to them they will wind you up until you crack have gone to my bank and requested the original copy of the direct debit form and all the statements as its my intention to claim back under the direct debit scheme and also I am going to go to the FOS and see what they can do as wehrn on the phone to this person when mentioned that they ceased trading back in feb they tiold me I was misinformed ?????? A bare faced lie me thinks good luck huns and let me know what happens

 

in fact other numbers for the company in question include 08701125132

so may i suggest that they have a switchboard basically 0870 0112 extension where the extension is for example 5136 above and 5132 here

etc .

Lord Mustill Commonwealth,

 

Lord Mustill discussed the need to construe a contract contra preferentem: "the basis of the contra proferentem principle is that the person who puts forward the wording of a proposed agreement may be assumed to have looked after his own interests, so that if words leave room for doubt about whether he is intended to have a particular benefit there is reason to suppose that he is not."

Wanted to just catch up with something. I had a CCJ from Cap1 via Bryan Carter just over two years ago. It had to be paid by a certain date - my evidence never got shown to the court so they "assumed" I was working and not a carer on benefits. My OH paid it to stop the CCJ - it was to be paid by 17th of whatever month it was - my OH paid via electronic bank payment from his account on 15th of whatever month and Bryan Carter said they didn't recieve it til 23rd of whatever month. We have proof it left my OH's account on 15th. I never got a certificate of saticfaction and the CCJ sits on my credit rating as unresolved.

 

I desperately want to send in the evidence to get them to confirm they recieved this, confirm the date the money was paid was on 15th of the month and get the CCJ removed. If they won't I know I can take this before a court. However, I know Cap1 were chasing for nearly £600 including loads of interest added on. If I kick up a fuss over this, will they chase me for the rest or slap on another CCJ?

 

Thanks

Interesting news for anyone dealing with Bryan Carter & Co....

 

Due to Bryan Carter being so ****** , I wrote a letter of complaint to the Supervisor of Solicitors (SoS) about them. There is currently an ongoing investigation ;-) ...Anyhoo, I'd like to share with you part of the letter I received back from the SoS today. The paragraph below is an extract of the letter the SoS has sent Bryan Carter and it reads....

 

'I would also ask you to explain why letters sent out on Bryan Carter & Co headed paper after the date the firm ceased to exist. I understand that you are still using Bryan Carter & Co headed paper. Our records show that Bryan Carter and Co ceased on 28th February 2007. This could have very serious implications for the partners of the firm as it is misleading.'

 

Hmmm..Interesting. I can't imagine for a second that the SoS have gotten things wrong. If this is the case then will the real Bryan Carter's please stand up, who are they now ???

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have just spent a large part of the night at work reading this thread and because of it have just gone and cancelled my DD with this person and will post of CCA's to them tomorrow or the next day.....it has been an inspiring read to say the least......highly recommended for anyone dealing with this person...

Thanks calvi36....need a bit of advice now though cos after checking some correspondance from DCA i am a wee bit confused!!

 

ok, debt was originally from MBNA, sold to Arrow Global ltd 2/8/06 who said they were now my Data Controller but said all further dealings were to be with Fredrickson Internationl ltd who would be managing the account. That was fine and went through CAB and eventually ended up on a repayment plan (just paid by switch over the phone to Fred). Due to separation i then fell behind with repayments and they passed it onto their solicitors, Bryan Carter & co. Gt back into repayments via DD this time and bank statement say Bryan Carter client or something to that effect. Then got a letter 23/11/07 from FERD saying thank you for your good payment record and we'd like to help you reduce your debt quicker so have up my repayment by £2 (means i'll be 89 instead of 89 and 2 months before its paid lol). This is also fine but on the FRED letter they specifically say 'Our Client Arrow Global Ltd'. So my question is who do I owe this debt to really and who should I make the CCA out to....as you may understand I am a wee tad confused!!!!!:confused: :confused:

Hi,

 

It sounds to me that Arrow Global actually own the account. Fred Int will be managing the account on their behalf.

 

For now I would send a CCA request to whoever you are, or were paying. If they do not have a copy of your agreement, then in theory they should pass the account back.

 

So send a request and see what, if anything, happens! It only costs a quid!

 

 

Regards, Jeff.

Oh my god - I cannot believe this thread!!

 

I only came across this website this morning when doing some research but you guys have been so helpful.

 

I have been dealing with Bryan Carter for the past year. They now have control of my Egg Card debt.

 

Unfortunately I have not received any letters from them since Nov 2006(which was when they received the debt) - and I pay them £50.00 a month on a card that they sent me for use with Paypoint machines.

 

The only correspondence I have had from them is if I am a day late paying the £50.00 they send me a SMS text saying this is Bryan Carter please call us immediately etc etc. This prompts me to remember to pay - so I have not received a letter from them in ages.

 

I am now concerned having read this thread - and the whole forum, as to the fact I have been scared into paying money etc to various creditors and have not really taken notice of my rights. I have a CCj from this account as the first month I was late and Bryan Carter sent me to court - which I did not know about until I received the letter saying I had a CCJ for £158.00!! The actual amount I owe is about £1300. So I paid off the £158 and have been paying off the £1300 at £50.00 per month. But now I do not know whether the CCJ is legal if they are not Bryan Carter anymore and whether they should be sending me texts from Bryan Carter. Should I even be paying this £50.00 per month to a company that doesn't exist anymore???

2 things to ask for from them....

 

1. Deed of assignment (This proves that they have actually been instructed to retrieve this debt by Egg)

 

and

 

2. Your CCA (They have proof that an actual debt exists). You may be able to contact Trading Standards if they do not produce one, saying they are taking money off of you under false pretences if they have no proof that there is a debt) This CCA must be a true copy of the CCA you signed when entering into the contract with Egg and you should send a £1.00 cheque for it. Make sure you send the request by one of the recorded or registered post services where they have to sign for it, so you know they got your request and you have proof. Continue paying as normal until instructed by Trading Standards. The reason being is you have been instructed by the court to pay. I am not sure of how you get a CCJ order removed if it is found to be falsly obtained. Do a search for the CCA Template letter in this forum. Never use your signature when in correspondence with them. They have a time limit to produce your CCA by and if it exceeds that period and they do not supply contact Trading Standards to let them know. If they do have a CCA for you. You could ask for the SAR (which is a break down of the money you owe). again this must be accurate to what you actually owe and not how they inflated the debt.

Hi girlygreen, there are many people on here who are fighting the same fight. Some are very knowledgeable and others are not. Since we are all in the same boat with this company I would ask you to read back to my earlier posts. this company does not come anywhere near me now. I took the good advice I was given and dealt with it accordingly.

I thought the harpies in the background were the Carterettes, or even if one might be the Wife of Bryan, but examination of the site reveals that they are on every one of the 'people' pages.

 

I wonder if Seahorse has added Bryan to his Hall of Shame yet?
