hi every one, i have sent many of cca letters to dca, some own the debts while others are collecting them for there clients.

i have one imperticular debt collctor giving me a load of grief, they never produced a signed copy of my credit agreement with in the 12 + 30 days, all they sent me was a copy of my application form.

the debt collectors (lowell) own the debt which was originaly a capital one credit card of the amount of £363.

i was this morning on the phone to a man from trading standars, he told me, i should of sent the cca request letter to capital one and not lowell financial.

i thought that becouse lowell owned the debt, it was them who should recieve the cca letter

any comments on this would be very greatfuly appriacted.

many thanks michelle xx

You were ok to CCA lowells because if theya re saying they own the debt then they should have your cca. In reality they haven't bothered to get it at time debt was purchased so they will have to ask Cap1 for it who hopefully will have shredded it on sale of debt.

 

If lowells don't produce cca within 12 +2 working days then they are in default and can't enforce debt while in default.

You may receive different advice to your query as people have different experiences and opinions. Please use your own judgement in deciding whose advice to take.

 

If in doubt seek advice from a qualified insured professional. Any advice I have offered you is done so on an informal basis, without prejudice or liability.

hi, and thanks for replying, its been over 2 months since i have requested it, i have no idea what to do now, trading standards say they wont help me unless it was capital one who was messing around, he told me the debt collectors are not the ones to send the cca letter to in the first place even though they no longer own the debt. xx

the DCA brought he debt, the problem of collection is their's.

they did not comply with the CCA, [12+2 & 1 cal month]

so it is now unenforceable.

if they continue they are committing a summary criminal offence.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Mercers, who act for Barclaycard, were on my case so I sent them (Mercers) a CCA request and they have failed to respond for two months and continue to hassle me.

 

Mercers said the CCA request was nothing to do with them yet they are managing my account.:???:

thank you all for replying, lowell, had bought the debt of capital one, infact i have just this moment found the letter from lowells which reads....

we hereby give notice of the assignment of the debtdue to us from you in resect of the balance of £363.33 out standing to capital one.

on 12/12/2006 your account was sold to lowell portfolio i ltd

(yea sold it to them for about £50 i bet !!)

michsienna, I bet it was a lot less than £50.

 

You are completely correct in CCA'ing Lowells, and the man from TS in this case is ill-informed.

This does happen as they are not as well versed in Consumer Credit Law as members of this forum are.

 

Let Lowells continue to ask for repayment as they cannot enforce it.

A few STONGLY worded letters should make them back off.

Even if they do take you to court they don't have a leg to stand on.

Have a read through this thread: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/debt-collectors-debt-collection/90012-just-been-court-cl.html

 

Just out of interest Cap1 DON'T have executed agreements they rely on the appliction form only.

Be VERY careful whose advice you listen too

have you this in writing?

if so time to contact OFT and TS

 

write them a letter saying that they have failed to comply with your CCA request of XXXXXX and have now defaulted.

 

the debt is now unenforcable without a court order and they will look pretty silly suddenly being able to produce one in court when you have already legally requested them to do so.

the judge will laugh them out of the door.

 

you might wish to do some reading in the threads regarding CCA requests so you further understand why/what you should be doing.

Perhaps show this section of the Consumer Credit Act to Trading Standards

 

175 Duty of persons deemed to be agents

Where under this Act a person is deemed to receive a notice or payment as agent of the creditor or owner under a regulated agreement, he shall be deemed to be under a contractual duty to the creditor or owner to transmit the notice, or remit the payment, to him forthwith.

Irrespective of who trading standards believe the creditor to be, the above section confirms your request was correctly served.

Unfortunately no. I've been ignoring their phone calls but I couldn't resist answering to them on Wednesday for a bit of amusement.

 

Mercers asked for my security details and I refused but they went on to discuss my account in any case.

 

They said a CCA to them was useless and nothing to do with them and that a bailiff would be calling to my home soon.

 

I received a letter today from them giving me 48 hours notice of a visit from a 'local' collection agency.

 

Mercers have defaulted the request and offended but are still sending letters, texts, phone calls...:???:
