Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is it you want to achieve? Did Wonga confirm they would remove it in writing?Alex
Ok - could you please?
I see. That may be illegal !
Sure. Section 13 of the Data Protection Act 1998 states:
(1)An individual who suffers damage by reason of any contravention by a data controller of any of the requirements of this Act is entitled to compensation from the data controller for that damage.
(2)An individual who suffers distress by reason of any contravention by a data controller of any of the requirements of this Act is entitled to compensation from the data controller for that distress if—
(a)the individual also suffers damage by reason of the contravention, or
(b)the contravention relates to the processing of personal data for the special purposes.
You need to write and set out your losses and request compensation within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not compensate you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Its hard to say, it really depends on what you can justify. But I dont think more than £5,000 in reality.
Does that clarify? Alex
I dont think you could go for £71,000.........
Even if you had not rented, you would have required to be paying mortgage interest.
You can claim more than £10k if you want, but then if you lose an element of your case you would be liable for costs of the other side.
