    • I’ve been getting debit collection letters from a number of diffrent companies but I don’t recognise any of them. So I signed up to one of the credit rating agencies to find out who I owed money to. But that didn’t help. It just lists the debit collection company and the amounts they say I owe them. The amounts are staggering. now I was caught out once before by a debit collection agency saying I owed money but not who to and I just paid it. It wasn’t till after this that I found out that some agencies just send letters demanding payment for a nonexistent debit. On my credit report it says I owe money to the debit collection agent but there are no records of any original debit. no unpaid loans or credit cards.  so what do I do? I had a serious brain injury so I have memory problems and some untreatable mental illness. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
    • Hi, I’m sorry I haven’t replied sooner and that I wasn’t clearer. The situation is this.  I had a pay as you go sim and wanted to change to a VOXI pay monthly account. the guy on the phone said I’d need a new sim that would be a standard pay monthly sim. He told me that once I got the sim then I could call and have it put on a VOXI account. So. I agreed but at some point in the,long conversation after he ordered the new sim he said that infact I didn’t need a new sim and could just change my pay as you go sim into a VOXI sim. so he did that. I assumed that that was the end of the matter. I had done what I set out to do. And didn’t think about the ‘new’ sim because it was not needed. I assumed he had canceled it because it was not needed. then in January I get a letter saying I was behind on my phone bill. so I called them and that’s when I found out the ‘new’ sim had been ordered but never arrived .

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hello all.

 

I have finally started my Littlewoods thread! I will try and summarise what has happened so far, since my first CCA request letter, sent in my early CAG days - oh have I learned a lot since then!

 

June 2007

I held two accounts with Littlewoods - 1 catalogue and 1 Flexible Account

On 12 June I wrote to Littlewoods requesting a copy of my CCA under sections 77-79 OF the CCA 1974. They had until 26 June to comply with my request. Needless to say they did not.

 

July 2007

On 23 July I received letters for each of my former accounts, dated 19 July, from Littlewoods. In one letter it stated that they would not be pursuing the outstanding balance but would note it on their internal file for future reference. The letter for the second account interestingly did not say that they would not pursue the account. It just stated that again the outstanding balance would be noted on their internal file for future reference.

 

At this point Littlewoods were a few days from committing a summary offence under the CCA 1974. I thought that this was the end of the matter - it was not to be

 

August 2007

Having arrived home yesterday 28 August, after a two week holiday, I find letters awaiting me from Littlewoods and Capquest. The letters from Littlewoods (one for each account) were dated 12 August and state that the outstanding balances were legally assigned to Capquest Investments on 12 January 2007 (really?!) and that all communications blah blah blah, should be directed to them.

 

Also attached to Littlewoods letters, were letters from Capquest themselves stating that they had purchased the debts from Littlewoods. I needed to make contact by 17 Aug or account would be sent to their solicitors. Funnily enough, their letters were also dated 12 August :-?

 

Well as I was away, I was unable to comply with this (not that I would have mind), so another letter from Capquest dated 24 August which is entitled LETTER BEFORE ACTION. I have until tomorrow, 30 August, to come to some arrangement with them. Well yah boo sucks to them!!!:evil:

 

If any of you have followed some of my other threads, you will know that I detest Capquest with a passion and that I am currently fighting them on another case. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/debt-collectors-debt-collection/100456-capquest-ccj.html?nojs=1#goto_threadtools

 

I have composed a stinky CCA request letter to them details of which I will post later. It is an amalgamation of several letters that I have sent for various other matters and credit goes to the original authors, from whom I have borrowed excerpts.

 

So there you have it :shock:

 

Oh - forgot to add that whilst we were away, Capquest were calling at least three times a day, to the point that my brother-in-law recognised their number off by heart (he did not know who they were). I only know it was them because my phone logs the last few calls received. I called the number today and was greeted by one of their representatives. On their letters they put their 0870 number. Their proper geographical number is 01252 576 300.

 

 

Here ends my first post!

Bad luck Deedee.

BTW the 01252, number is Fleet Hampshire, but it connects to their Scottish office.

 

Just thought I'd mention that for starters.

 

So Littlewood "sold" these accounts while in default of your CCA and they have since passed the extra month. Oh dear silly people.

 

Well I'm sure you know what needs to be done.

Would you like a Bog Off letter, as I recently have had dealings with CQ, well still do actually.

Be VERY careful whose advice you listen too

Littlewoods have been very silly as they have not complied with your CCA request. I would write to them pointing this out. Also point out that as the debt is in dispute it should not have been passed to Crapquest. If they have committed the summary offence then report them to TS.

 

As for Crapquest. Write to them pointing out the fact that the alleged debt is in dispute with Littlewoods and as such should not have been passed to them. Inform Crapquest that you will not be dealing with them until Littlewoods comply with your CCA request.

Hey CurlyBen.

 

I did wonder at the plethora of Scottish accents (I called a couple of times to make sure today).

 

I'm ok, just didn't fancy having to take on Capquest again :o . They are sneaky and underhand but as I know how they behave, I will do everything within my power to make sure that they don't get as far as the CCJ stage.

 

Littlewoods are in criminal default of my CCA request. I don't believe for one moment that they assigned by debt on 12 Jan. I think they have put this in to cover themselves. What do you think my next move should be? Should I report Littlewoods to Trading Standards (Consumer Direct)? My guns are still smoking from my last duel with them :p

 

I have sent CCA request to Capquest today, in the first off, to start tying them up.

 

Your opinions as always, would be greatly appreciated

LOL ODC! Our posts have just crossed. At least you've confirmed to me what I had been thinking about, on how to proceed. Writing it all down has made me feel better as I felt discouraged yesterday. :D

I should add that I have not yet posted letters to Capquest, so will amend them to include what ODC has just said about not dealing with them, due to Littlewood's non-compliance.

 

Thanks guys. :-)

If Littlewoods assigned the debt to Crapquest in January why were they still discussing it with you in July. Littlewoods are in breach of the law by failing to comply with your CCA. As for Crapquest getting a CCJ. They have no hope without a CCA which Littlewoods plainly dont have. You have plenty of written evidence of the underhanded dealings of Littlewoods and Crapquest with regards to dates of supposed deeds of Assignment. I for one would not be shocked to discover that the Deed of Assignment from Littlewoods actually was typed on the same printer as the letters from Crapquest:eek: if you get my drift. A £10 SAR to Littlewoods will show when in fact this was assigned to Crapquest if at all

Get them to sign a photoshop CCA before you give them any info. Better still sign it yourself and tell them its real and you are a baliff and will make them bankrupt and sell all their children to pay you

Hi manf.

 

I'm exhausted! have come back from holiday (which had a nightmare end) and then gone right back into the swing of work. Coupled with getting the children ready for school, you've got one tired woman here :o

 

I have Curlyben's letter more or less ready to go with a few amendments to make. To be honest I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment. The fight is still in me, my body is refusing to keep up.

 

Crapquest and Littlewoods can kiss my backside at the moment :p

 

How are things with you?
