    Hi JamesLFC

    Please give us a brief history of your issue with them and tell us where things currently stand.

    I like your pin shot
    I keep it with your letter
    Done up in blueprint blue
    It sure looks good on you
    And when you smile for the camera
    I know I'll love you better

    Then the shutter falls
    You see it all in 3-D
    It's your favorite foreign movie

    Hi,

    Two years ago I engaged a small company the go ahead to claim back PPI for me. The company called EDC were as good as their word and I paid them the 12% as required. I then started receiving post from Bank Smart telling me they were handling further claims. Three weeks ago I received another letter from MIL Collections saying I was in breach of contract. I have nether asked Bank Smart to carry out any PPI search on my behalf.

    Later today I will be posting further correspondence from Bank Smart.

      Hi James

      Thanks, I'll look forwards to seeing the correspondence and helping you with this.

      Have you had any response from them to your email of 28 May?

        Your Client ID ref: BC01/@@@@/@@@@
        Dear Sirs
        I am writing in response to your letter dated 7th May 2021 in which you allege that I have ''breached'' a contract with yourselves and for which I, you assert, am liable for ''damages''. I have never entered into any agreement with BankSmart or Symmetric Systems and dispute that any breach of contract has occurred. As far as I am aware I have never instructed anyone to make any claim on my behalf for 'packaged bank account charges'. In your letter you state that the 'Claim assigned from Francis Hughes' at a cost to me of £168.44. I have absolutely no idea who 'Francis Hughes' is. I am therefore somewhat at a loss as to why you feel I am indebted to you at all.
        In consideration of this demand I would be grateful if you could provide me with the following:
        1) A signed copy of any contractual agreement with you.
        2) All copies of Letters of Authority signed by myself.
        3) A copy of any documentation/agreement/contract you have been assigned by 'Francis Hughes'.
        Can you also confirm how, if you were assigned the agreement by 'Francis Hughes' in 2019, you state that in 2019 that you "have issued [me] with a reminder for documents/information which is causing a delay to [my] claim. [My] claim may be lost and [I] may be in breach of [my]agreement with us if [I] fail to respond". Please tell me when the first request to provide you with documents was sent and the deadline by which I was required to respond by.
        On receipt of the above documents I anticipate that I will be making a formal complaint to you.
        Yours

        James

              Hi Nick,

              I heard back from Bank Smart today by email. They also sent me copies of three pages with a signature that bears no resemblance to mine.

                If you believe someone has fraudulently signed the documents please provide us with the crime reference number so we can forward any original documents to the police for finger printing.

                      Ok but in your previous post you quoted them saying this:

                      If you believe someone has fraudulently signed the documents please provide us with the crime reference number so we can forward any original documents to the police for finger printing.
                      But that's not in the email you sent me?

                      Also you said they sent you 3 pages but you only sent me one?

                      I like your pin shot

                        I have also sent my actual signature as it is in my 2019 passport. The signatures on the Bank Smart documents are not mine.

                              A few questions as I know nothing about the background of your dealings with them:


                              1) When was the first time you heard from Bank Smart and what was it about?

                              2) Did you ever have any dealings with Francis Hughes? They're also known as Ascend Finance.

                              3) Can you send me their letter to you of 7 May (to which you responded on 28 May) and any attachments that came with it?

                              4) As I asked you before, please send me the email where they said ''If you believe someone has fraudulently signed the documents please provide us with the crime reference number so we can forward any original documents to the police for finger printing''.

                              5) Have you ever accessed you BS online account before?


                              Thanks.

                              I like your pin shot
                              I keep it with your letter

                              It sure looks good on you
                              And when you smile for the camera
                              I know I'll love you better
