  1. Nothing was signed. T&C's were not mentioned on the call. I received an invoice for the first two times I paid for the service, but none after I verbally said I did not want to proceed with the service. I received a phone call a year later (after refusing verbally to carry on with the service) saying that there was an outstanding invoice to be paid. I denied this and then they play a recording of me saying yes. This recording was probably from the first or second time I agreed, but I know it was not from the 3rd time when I refused to carry on with the service.
  2. Yes i did have a look at their T&C's and noticed this the other day. I think I can argue that it is an unfair contract and am investigating how I can go about this. In the mean time I have asked for the proof from the Debt Collectors, which will give me some breathing space before we go into the next round. Thanx Seamark
  3. In that case I may as well save £10 and just let the debt collector gather the recorded evidence from the main company. I presume they will have to prove when the recording was made through date stamps or some other means. Think I will just wait for them to send me the proof, and if it is just a recording with out any date then I will dispute it. If it does have a date stamp then I know I am in the clear. Thanks again for all your advice. Seamark
  4. Thanks for that. I will do that. Another question. I have asked the debt collector company to send me proof, but it seems the only proof that the main company have is this recording. Are they allowed to pass recordings on to third parties. I always though that they could not. Thanx Seamark
  5. When I first opened my Pub I had many different businesses contacting me with offers to promote my pub in their magazines, website or Pub Guides of some description or another. one that I did sign up to was "The Official Pubs Guide" After two years I told them I was not interested anymore. I never had any sort of direct debit with them and t was done on a yearly basis. They phoned me and I either agreed and paid them, or as the last time, I did not agree and did not pay them. A year later they phoned and said I had an outstanding bill with them for last years entry on
  6. Thanks for that. Well the fact that the Garage said they only had a few miles left in them, I suppose means they were still roadworthy and were over the 1.6mm or on the cusp and I can’t see that it is worth the trouble of chasing the £75 that the brake discs cost, so will leave it. With regards to the Extended Parts Warranty. I am a member of Which? I also sign up for their legal advice line (great value for money if anyone is interested) and they advised me that these type of warranties come under Insurance and you have a statutory right to cancel within a 14 day cooling off period.

  7. Hi I was wondering if I had any recourse to reclaim some costs from a 2nd hand car dealer. I bought a Mercedes C180 with a 57 reg last week 13th January. When I bought the car I noticed that it was flashing a message that it was 266 days overdue for a service. When I pointed this out to the dealer he said that the reason for this was that it had been sitting since it’s last service and this was just an automatic countdown from the cars computer, whereby in reality it did not really need a service. Stupidly I believed him. Had I checked the service history I would have seen that the
  8. Hi First time I have posted to this forum, although it has been a great forum to help me through my BR. Fantastic advice and up to date information, so thank you all for a really helpful resource. Now here is my current problem which has lead me to finally post. I was discharged from BR in November 2009. I have just got round t getting my credit reports from the 3 agencies and they were much as I expected so I started to compose and send my letters to the various companies (together with my discharge notice) to get my credit reports updated. I noticed one Default which I did not recogn
