    Hi Shepss,

    Here's the link to you photo

    They are trying to say it's a contractual term rather than a breach of contract, but don't worry it's still easily challenged.
    Just means the usual POPLA grounds on no genuine pre estimate of loss will need some extra points to deal with this and the forum will help you include what's needed.

    Thank you ColliesCarer . I have until 22/4/14 to appeal ( their letter was issued 25/3/14 and was a day out from the issue of the code anyway. ) But Ii will deal with it way before that. I will try to set something out tomorrow , my family will be here for a few days after that , so if not about Friday next. If I set out something and post it I'd be grateful if you'd shoot me down if anything's wrong especially as you say it needs some extra points re the pre estimate of costs point per your post.

    Of course - no problem, I and others will help you perfect it and you've plenty of time to get this in before the deadline.

    Much of the appeal da_rule pointed you to in post 2 will apply to you (linked again below for you)

    but also take a look at others too by doing the search Coupon-Mad suggested for Athena or Lidl.
    To do a search click the "search the forum" tab (on the right in the green band at the top of main page of this forum) put in the search term and select "posts".

    In addition check the notice to keeper that Athena originally sent to you against section 9 of POFA 2012 schedule 4 for any compliance issues as these are relevant to whether they have failed to establish keeper liability.
    Things to look for particularly are:
    a) Did you receive it within 15 days of the alleged event ( if no post mark, the date they issued it + 2 working days (excluding Sat and Sun) is when it will be presumed to have been delivered to you).
    b) Have they identified themselves as the creditor?
    If your unsure - post up a picture of both front and back pages making sure you blank out any personal detail and I'll take a look at it for you.
