    • I managed  to get through to northants bulk today, spoke to a lady who told me after taking my details,the case no, my address etc, that it's not one of their cases? She then asked me if I knew the total amount ,I said no.   She asked regarding the claimants name, after which she enquired as to what letter & form I had been sent, and what court had sent it.   She then informed me that because it was my local county court ( manchester) who are dealing with it they're the ones I will have to go through as she'll be " limited as to what she'll be able to say".    I have her my reasons why I've called ie obtain a copy of the judgement and the claim form, she said " the claim form when it was initially issued is not something we can send out again,but the court will be able to send you case details & I'll be able to get them through my local court,they're will be a £10 fee for copies of documents but I'll need to go through Manchester county court who have the case file"    I asked if Manchester Will have the claim form? She said no as the claim form can't be reproduced,but I'll be able to get case details which will have the information which would have been in the claim form. They will have the particulars of claim, which will tell you what the claim was about.   I asked if their is any way I can get the claim form, she responded with " the claim form can't be reproduced" but you can get case details which will the information that would have been on the claim form through Manchester county court, and a copy of the judgement will come from there too,as they are dealing with it now.   She told me the case was initially at a different county court (name indistinguishable due to bad connection) and is not a case they've dealt with, and they (northants bulk) only deal with online claims?  And mine was a manual claim, so I'm to contact Manchester,as I need to go to them direct.    So I'm kind of lost now in terms of what steps to take next.     In regards to what date was on the bailiffs letter he left it blank, and only filled in the area underneath which asked for " ref " which he filled in with one letter and one number.     Hi there   Yes I'm thinking of crossing out what I've filled in on the form and ask for a suspension on this matter as I've been the victim of identity fraud. It must have been someone from one of my temporary abodes as I did have mail sent to a couple of the addresses.   Yes I'll definitely be calling northants bulk on Monday as a matter of urgency, and will post off the form the same day too.   I'm not sure what date is on the form but I will definitely check once I'm home and update you on here.   Thank you for clarifying the abbreviation.    Hi ,just to ask, would I still be subject to the 8 day reply thing,as he's not put a date on the letter,and would you have any idea why he did that.    Many thanks

I sent a letter to a and l recently offering a a partial payment for a quick settlement. I showed the total amount that we would claim inc interest should it go to court and also that we would take them to court if we did not receive a satisfactory response.

 

I received a letter today saying "thank you for your communication and we are looking into the matter and will update you asap".

 

Has anyone else had this and do they usually answer?

 

I am wondering whether to just file the claim on the 24th May as stated in our last letter.

 

What do you think??

Hi

 

I just received a fob off letter today, in reply to my first letter requesting my refund. It arrived one day too late and I had already posted my 2nd letter. In reading others' experiences I would go ahead with court proceedings, I intend to do so on 29 May, when my 14 days are up. Good luck.

Thanks for the advice. I am really nervous about starting court proceedings. I feel a bit out of depth but dont wanna go down without a fight!!

 

I'll keep you posted on how I get on - good luck with yours.

Hi, sozzer1982, you say you offered A&L a chance to settle for 'less', does this mean you haven't sent the prelim letter and LBA as recommended by the CAG?

If you've done it the 'CAG' way then go ahead as per the timetable, but if you haven't I'd suggest you start and follow the tried and tested route taken by hundreds (thousands?) of CAG members - because problems can easily arise if you're not properly prepared. :cool:

HI Younganfree,

 

I did send the prelim letter requesting the charges back with schedule of charges. I had all my statements and things which made it a bit quicker. I received a fob off as a result of that. I then sent another - think its referred to as LBA and then to avoid having to go to court I sent one final letter hoping for a speedy settlement for 25% less than the charges but as below that didnt get anywhere.

 

I will go ahead with the court proceedings - she says nervously!!

Hi dont worry if u followed other sites think they are all roughly the same, i kind of followed this one and the gmtv one as that how i first heard of all this. I too offered a&l the option of paying me a reduced amount and got the reply that they were looking into it and it would take up to 56 days!! i didnt wait for them i sent them a letter saying that it was not good enough and had 5 days to make me a suitable offer, i even rang them when this was up, which was a waste of time!! to be told the normal stuff i.e these charges are in the terms & conditions blah blah blah. So now just about to do my mcol and have recieved a letter offering me ................

£53.00!!!!! without interest my claim is £5531.00 so they can stuff their offer would rather lose at court!! So keep going we can not let them win!!!
