I cca'ed Thames Credit they wrote to say they had not got the agreement and would remove me from there list. So all is not lost Kezza and certainly not worth making yourself ill over.

Hope all works out ok.

kezza, amend these letters to suit your personal details and send with a £1 p/order by first class signed for, first thing in the morning. Also type on the 1st line, "I do not acknowledge any debt to your company", and don't sign it.

Also, put the statute barred letter in the same envelope;

Along with the telephone harassment letter;

We'll get this sorted!

Hi

 

I also received a letter today from Thames Credit stating that my "alleged" debt was not statute barred and the Limitations act was not relevant. Dont worry - I know that is all a complete pile of cr*p.

 

However, upon closer inspection of the letter and the envelope it came in I discovered the letter was dated 28/06/07 (today is 05/07/07) and the envelope is franked second class by their postroom 03/07/07. The letter tells me I can pay a 50% reduced sum as long as they get it by 08/07/07, a Sunday. Given that they should expect 2 working days for the letter to reach me they expect the debt to be paid by the end tomorrow...idiots.

 

I have sent a CCA request to them today. Lets see what that turns up :p .

 

I am in a very fortunate position of working for the largest finance company in the Middle East and our in house lawyers give free legal counsel and assistance in any matter to the employees. I can guarantee our laywers are better than Thames Credits so bring it on!

The clock for limitations STARTs form the last time you acknowleded the debt, basically when you last made a payment to it, NOT when they entered a default or other information to the CRA's.

 

If you have any other concerns you really should ask, rather than getting all confused and stressed.

WE have a lot of information and experience with dealing with issues like this.

 

Now I hope you have taken onboard ALL the advice and guidance that has been offered ?!

Be VERY careful whose advice you listen too

Kezza, please please please don't allow yourself to be pressured by a DCA, especially if it's making you ill.

 

They'll try all manner of dirty tricks to make you cough up, including being all fluffy and nice on the phone. The "we're only trying to help you" tactic is one of the most dangerous.

 

Don't pay them anything, no matter how tempting it may seem. If you even give them a quid, the six year clock could get reset and you've lost your advantage.

 

Right now you've got them by the short and curlies. Send them a CCA request (and ensure you include "I do not acknowledge any debt") and soon you'll have them by the balls as well.

  • 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 ;)

sorry i havnt got back to you lately i have had some severe anxiety attacks and been put on diazapam because of the threats of sending people to my door to collect money that i havnt got im still waiting for replies from mr lunn has i have complained about the way i was threatend but i havnt heard anything else about the second debt exept what i was told over the phone that the last payment was 20/08/00 but he could not see a defult date he would have to ask the company involved for that so he couldnt confirm that the debt is statuet barred or not which is worse because i dont know where i stand and i cant send any letters yet because they have not sent me one yet asking for the money and if i do i will be admiting the debt what should i do i have paid the first debt off but the second is a lot more money that i havnt got £1200 and im worried that they will keep leaving it so they can keep adding to the amount and eventualy ill end up with a £20000 bill

Hi Kezza,

 

Please please don't let these lowlife affect your health, it's simply not worth it. They're in the wrong and chances are they know it.

 

I'll knock up a letter and post it here in a tick. :)

Try sending something like this:

 

 

By recorded delivery, reference AB 1234 5678 9GB

Dear Sir / Madam,

I write regarding the debt which you allege exists between us. For the avoidance of doubt I do not acknowledge any debt to your company or its clients.

I would remind you that I wrote on XXXXXXX requesting a true copy of the executed agreement which leads you to believe this alleged debt exists. This is my right under section 78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974, and section 189 of the Act explains your role as the creditor.

You will be aware that you have 12 working days from receipt of this request in which to send the documentation, after which you are in default.

I also require your written confirmation of the last date a payment was made towards this alleged debt. I believe that this may be Statute Barred under the Limitation Act, and would remind you that should this be the case then you are prevented by statute from attempting to collect.

Turning to your threats to send a collection agent to visit me, I remind you that there is only an implied license under English Common Law for certain people to visit me on my property without express permission; the postman and people asking for directions etc (Armstrong v. Sheppard and Short Ltd [1959] 2 Q.B. per Lord Evershed M.R.).

Take note, I revoke license under English Common Law for you, or your representatives to visit me at my property and if you do so without my permission, you will then be liable to damages for a tort of trespass. You would also be conspiring in a trespass if you sent someone to visit me nevertheless.

In future all correspondence must be made in writing only. Any attempts, whether successful or not, to contact me by any other means will be treated as harassment under the Administration of Justice Act and reported to the authorities accordingly.

I trust you will give this matter the attention it deserves, and I look forward to your prompt reply.

Hmm you have a few options.

1/ short and sweet - Take me to court you bar stewards

2/ CCA them to get the original excuted credit agreement

3/ Full SAR and see exactly when the last payment was.

 

Now if you are 110% sure the debt is stat barred then I'd choose 1/ otherwise if you have any doubt go for 2 and 3.

 

If you have the balls 1 could be a good option as part of the defence would be full disclosure of all documents CCA and statements so 2 and 3 in one hit.

Be VERY careful whose advice you listen too

Kezza, I wouldn't push them I'd wait for their next move in WRITING.

NO more phone calls at all.

Letters ONLY form now on.

 

You have laready sent them the stat barred letter, so if they continue to demand payment then Trading Standards needs to get involved.
