Re: Lowell threatening me Again !!

Post by barnwebb on Sat Jul 21, 2018 7:50 pm

Thanks waylander62 & daveiron.

Yes I did mean the actual agreement. I will have to look up the best way to word the SAR as I am going to have to send one I feel.

I did weave in a sizeable chunk of the new version of the three letters in my initial response to their threat of legal action which included the questions about has the agreement ever been sold or traded etc, plus the bit about having someone their end sign the letters and take responsibility for them. As they haven't signed anything nor sent me anything recorded delivery I've been basically acting as if I've not heard from them and sending them questioning letters about their lack of contact. Risky probably but fun.

They have responded to my latest letter which included the cease & desist with another unsigned letter ( along with another bunch of photocopies the same as previous ) in which they say the account was legally aquired by assignment under the provisions of the law of Property Act 1925. They are satisfied that I've been informed of the processing of my data by their client and themselves in accordance with their clients instructions and that they are justified in continuing to process the data in accordance with the provisions of the original contract (there's me thinking it was just an agreement ) which has been assigned to their client. They consider their client are entitled to rely on Schedule 2, paragraph 2(a) of the Data Protection Act 1998 that deals with exceptions to any request under Section 10 and that they will continue to process data in relation to the account for the purpose of collecting payment. They do not regard their attempts at contacting me as harrassment. They've been instructed by their client and are under an obligation as per the court rules to keep me informed of the progress of the account etc, etc and now require me to respond by return to discuss repayments blah, blah !

Any thoughts guys ?

When debt collectors constantly keep asking people to pay alleged amounts of money without providing adequate proof of claim, this must go a long towards constituting harassment as its defined in the relevant law.

I'm assuming there is a law on this in the UK.

I am also assuming there is also regulator of the financial services industry in the UK.

That being the case, if a DC does not within a reasonable time, put up or shut up or, they will likely be guilty of harassment.

Consumers (debtors) should not waste any time lodging a complaint the regulator.

Even through DCs wont be rattled too much about this, its worth doing because the more people that complain, the more they get pushed back.

Sooner or later the regulator will launch an action against one of them to send a message to the industry.

Rather than keep telling DCs to go away, inform "that because they have not put up of shut then they do not have case, in which they are harassing you and that you will lodge formal complaint with the regulator if they do not cease and desist as of xyz date.

No one should have to ask for proof of claim more than 3 times before they are justified in lodging a complaint with the regulator.

Thanks Ausk,

Unfortunately the "regulators" are pretty much a waste of space and frequently find in favour of the DC's, even if the evidence is against the DC and in favour of the "victim", just to lighten the workload as they are understaffed. There is a youtube video about it which, when I find it again, I will post the link on here.

My last letter writing episode to the regulatory bodies out there a few years ago concerning a previous and separate case resulted in them telling me that the DC was entitled to demand I pay them. I ignored this and fought on with the DC eventually giving up as they had no paperwork at all but in their last letter to me said in their opinion I still owed them, ha, dream on !

I will be writing to the regulatory bodies anyway but won't be holding my breath for any positive action to be taken from their side.

Just came across this SAR info .... https://debtcamel.co.uk/free-access-data-gdpr/

'You have the right to get a copy of the information that an organisation holds about you. But before May 25 2018, you were usually charged £10.'

And concerning the CCA what should I do about the question of where the original CCA is if I can't send a SAR to the original lender according to the article ?

'DON’T use a SAR to ask for your CCA agreement

If you want to ask a creditor for a copy of the Consumer Credit Act agreement for your loan, credit card, catalogue or hire purchase agreement, then there is a special procedure to do this, see National Debtline’s factsheet Credit agreements – getting information. This involves you paying £1. This is not a SAR and, so far as I know, the GDPR changes will not affect the £1 charge.

If you follow the special procedure then the debt collector has to try to obtain a copy of the CCA agreement and if they can’t do this within 12 days, the debt is unenforceable in court until they can do this. If you send a SAR instead, you do not have this protection. NB your request for the CCA agreement should be sent to the debt collector, not the original creditor.'

An official CCA request can be made at any time to whoever 'owns' the debt, they ahve a statutory obligation to provide it.

a SAR is usually made to the original creditor and asks for everything they have in relation to your account, which would include the agreement, but in a SAR you can ask for specific things, they have an obligation to provide what you request.

I have NEVER sent a SAR to a DCA only to the original creditor.

Thanks waylander62,

That helps to clarify things, may I ask what questions you have put in your SAR ?

I've never written/sent one and haven't as yet found any examples that may be useful for me to use as ideas to extract information. Found a few templates online covering different subjects though, even one in the link in my prior post.

I was thinking along the lines of, " concerning the whereabouts of the original CCA agreement can you confirm to me that it has never been burnt or destroyed whilst in storage ? If it has not been burnt or destroyed please explain in full where it now is ! "

I was considering adding a question about the Deed of Assignment, " please supply a copy of the Deed of Assignment as under the ruling **** (can't remember offhand) I am entitled to have a copy of this document even if partly redacted ! "

Not sure how well that would go down but what are your thoughts on that approach ?

Hi barnweb,

Re the SAR. I have always done it this way,


                                      SUBJECT-ACCESS - REQUEST

This is a Subject Access Request under the Data protection Act 1998.

Please supply the following documentation;

Sorry can't the Lord Denning judgement from the top of my head ,If you cannot find it let me know.

hope this was helpful.

Found it.

See (Van Lynn Developments v Pelias Construction Co. Ltd 1998.[3] All ER 842)

Where Lord Denning M.R. said " the debtor is entitled to view the sale agreement to ensure that the assignee can give good discharge under the contract"

in addition regarding the destruction of the storage facility, you are over thinking that one.

just an inquiry into whether their storage facility, where they store all of the agreements has ever been subject to a fire, flood or any other act of god which has resulted in the destruction of said facility and therefore the destruction of the agreements contained within.

you dont need anything else, you dont even need to know where yours is or anything, that is not why you are asking the question.

Thanks daveiron & waylander62 for your prompt responses,

Been rushing about and only just now had a chance to log in.

In a previous court session concerning a different case the judge said that the Denning ruling has been superseded by case law and in no way was I allowed to see the Deed of Assignment as it was private. After that happened I managed to get in touch with a solicitor by 'phone who told me the judge was talking bull and I did have the right to see it which is why I was thinking of adding it to the SAR. Nice to see you've done it too.

I do probably overthink too much and make dumb mistakes in an attempt to not let any stone be left unturned so to speak.

You may have overlooked this question in previous posts but are solicitors actually allowed to just send letters unsigned by anyone "real" and just have their company name printed as the signature ?

Doesn't seem to be best practice in my opinion and makes them appear even more dodgy than they are already known to be.

Hi barnweb,

I have also heard that about the Denning judgement , we may have both got it from the same source.
However ,I have never seen or heard that case law stated anywhere with proof.
I suspect if it existed the claimant would have great delight in shoving it in front of us.

Regarding the unsigned letters ,clearly they do not want any liability attached to themselves ,
probably a good indication that they are uncomfortable with what they are claiming. I would be inclined
to ask them why it was unnamed & unsigned , and is it an attempt to deceive you.

Don't be concerned about over thinking ,I find the more angles that you look from ,the better you
will be at defending against them.

Thanks daveiron,

Yes, with the Denning judgement it was only after it was all over I realised I'd been stitched up by a biased judge who spent the majority of the time talking to and agreeing with the "enemy" barrister and they were spouting so much legalese I had to ask them to explain what were they talking about in real (layman) English.

First time ever in court so I'm not used to such things.

I've been ignoring the Lowell letters and talking to them as if I haven't been receiving them ( they haven't sent any to me recorded so stuff 'em ). I'll be sending them another letter even though my last one was a cease & desist and I'll point out that their initial letter threatening action against me was unsigned and ask exactly the questions you suggest.

I occasionally muddle myself with the over thinking and make dumb mistakes but I'm getting better dealing with how these procedures work.

Hi mattyb,

No claim made as yet, am trying to keep that at bay for as long as possible.

I'll have to look up the Arrow Global v Frost as I don't know the story.

Would be nice to be able to afford Paul Tilley but then if I had a bank account fat enough to afford him I wouldn't be in this tiresome situation in the first place.

DN ? I assume that means Default Notice.

Haven't yet sent the GDPR as have been discovering the best way to word it in order to extract the best possible result.

Cheers

Hi,

just quick question.

Did anyone had a look into new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2018/12/pdfs/ukpga_20180012_en.pdf

and also can you not request them to sign the letters.
Just tell them that you need to establish reverse liability just in a case and that they expect to take liability from you so it is logical that there needs to be a counterpart on the other side of the table, at the end of the day they try to establish bilaterall contract.
   Or put them on notice that, unless reverse liability is established, the dialog can't continue. If they ignore the notice, send second, after that 3rd and tell them that if there is nobody who wants to take responsibility, they will are ignored. Of course, don't ignore them but at least you got more paper for the court to show.

At the end of the day its game, and more green point you got then better.

Only my 2cc

No they are not. See what did I send above.
It looks like you can restrict much more with the new GDPR than they think.

you can do that, but any damage to your data is considered as DATA BREACH and the Controller has a DUTY to inform you as your Data has been compromised. Also the Controller is liable for any damages caused.

From what I'm seeing, there are still not people properly trained for this regulation and if you send them notice quoting it they are shttng themselves.

Thanks for that extra info jsicho,

I'll have to work out the best way to word all this so I don't shoot myself in the foot.

Things like .... " as you have failed to provide a genuine original or certified copy of the CCA then this is clearly a DATA BREACH on your part as you consider yourself data controller and you are therefore liable for all damages caused to me by you" .... or something along those lines maybe.
