  1. Hi and thanks for that, how do I seek a review? And how would I get a copy of all notices from the council - would it just be a case of calling them? I do not get notices to get my tax through the post
  2. Hi and thanks for your replies so far. I spoke with the parking ticket office in Manchester - as I had to put details of the offence on the TE7 but I had no idea what date it was or where the offence took place - I had to get the details off them. No I have always been at the same address, and my car is paid for I filed the OTT on the basis I knew nothing about this and had received no paperwork.
  3. Thanks again Jamberson. No, I was not rude or confrontational with him (apart from refusing to let him take my car or pay him money) as I was in a state of surprised shock, and really did not have time as I needed to be at work. I am now however more than a little miffed that he treatened me with being arrested when he apparently had no right to - he literally was on his mobile phone as I left shouting (for all my neighbours to hear) that he was calling the Police there and then to get me arrested. I have spent the day worried sick that the Police were going to turn up and march me
  4. Thank you for your prompt reply Jamberson, good to know what you said, but it is very intimidating. here is an email I got back from the TEC once I had sent them the TE7 &TE9 Dear Sir, Ive just checked your case again and they have now been processed. The TEC will now notify the Local Authority concerned that an application has been received and processed. Upon receipt of this notification the Local Authority is required to suspend any enforcement action. A copy of your application will be sent to the Local Authority. · The Local Authority is given 19
  5. Hi All, Well its been quite a day, one to forget really but I need any help and advice I can get please. Just about to leave for work this morning, and this guy walks up, saying he has a warrant to collect money for a court fine I apparently got for a parking offence. He said he was a court officer from Marstens representing Northampton County Court. I was completely taken aback, as I did not know what this was about. I asked him to show me what documents he had but he would not. All he said was that I had to pay or he would seize my car. I kept it polite, and told him that unti
  6. WOW Small Fry, what a brilliant piece of news and I am surprised not more people have acknowledged your achievement? I am very pleased for you and I hope this will help and encourage more people to go on to victory!! Its such a refreshing change to hear about a concrete success rather than the usual predictions which never come true and promises which are never kept which unfortunately are rife on this site. Well done !!!! m
  7. Some of you never learn do you? TIE get ready!! Lets revisit this post with yet another prediction in January, and see which way the custard goes. m
  8. Hi All, Perhaps we could and should have an explanation from the site team as to why he has been removed? pkelly dont fall into the same trap as Sparkie and delude yourself and other Swift victims - you should have learned by now that statements such as 'from the horses mouuth' 'watch this space' and 'swift will be out of business very shortly' just invite renewed posts from TIE. If it happens, I will be the first one down to Romford to give the departing Swift employees an F1 style champagne shower as they are escorted from the building - but somehow I doubt that will happen.
  9. Thanks BQ for the most sensible post on this forum of late - be interesting if anyone can come back with some constructive advice as a result instead of the mostly useless babble coming out of this forum recently. I think some on here, and its pretty obvious who who are, should hold back on posting unless they have something useful to contribute. Some have lost sight of why we are here - to battle and beat these robbing bandits who are making life so hard for so many. Those of you who want to get into personal battles - go find a chatroom - preferably an adult one so you can ge
  10. Hi Ozzie Good to hear from yet another satisfied Swift customer!!! Your situation is all too familiar unfortunatlely. Like you I was introduced to Swift by Ocean Finance, and I have written to them thanking them for helping me make the biggest financial mistake of my life, but they dont want to know - its good to know firms like Ocean Finance are in the business of helping people though? All I can offer you is to get the OFT involved - despite the good work some are doing on here, in my opinion it is only these guys who have the teeth to do some damage to Swift - they must have a w
  11. Guys, Why all the subterfuge? If anyone knows who TIE is, lets name him and get him out of the closet? If he is connected with Swift and exposure might get him in trouble - so what? At least give him/her a chance to confrim or deny? Why all the fannying about? m
  12. Nice one Apollo, Cas - also ping one off th Edward Allie at the OFT [email protected] The more complaints = more likely they will act m
  13. Hi Cas, I take nothing away from your eforts, but be aware the FOS are, in many peoples' experience, about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike - they always seem to favour the lenders. By all means write to them, but please get the OFT involved too - they are much more likely to make a difference. Just hit the link on FOS to see what I mean m
  14. Hi Cas, In a word, ouch!!! - yet another Swift success story - do they actually have any satisfied customers at all I wonder? Check they were not using the Rule of 78 to calculate the settlement figure - if they were, you might be stuffed as although it has now been abolished, it was leagal even though it was grossly unfair as the lender could lump all the interest on in an early settlement situation. Swift have now been forced not to use this from May 2010. If they did not use this method, challenge them on the OFT guidelines (and VERY importantly fire off a letter to the OFT t
  15. Hi SJ I honestly dont know what to do - part of me is saying remortgage and get these robbing b*stards out of my hair for good, but another part of me is saying that I have taken the hit now - I have 8 years left to pay and as we all know you pay more off the capital in the later years so I should really start to see the balance come down. Another part of me is saying hold fire - the OFT are going to make these bandits crash and burn soon. I just dont know is the honest answer.
  16. Hi All, Firstly good to see Sparky back and I hope he is on the mend. GOOD NEWS!!! Remember my previous posts regarding settlement figures and the Rule of 78? Well Swift were forced to stop using this in May and I have just got a revised figure and its dropped by nearly £4K. I still have hardly made an impact on repaying what I owe - after 7 years I now owe about £700 less than I originally borrowed but at least its step and should be good news for anyone in a similar situation. Just the silly interest rates to go now - OFT come on!! m
  17. The Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government today pledged to look at ways of breaking up the banks, imposing a punitive levy on their businesses and clamping down on "unacceptable bonuses". Anxiety about how such plans would be implemented loomed over the UK banking sector today after Vince Cable was named business secretary. Cable, the former Liberal Democrat Treasury spokesman, is also believed to have been handed responsibility for banks. This means that the MP who launched some of the most outspoken attacks on the greed and excesses in the City is now being unleashed on t
  18. I have seen previous threads in a similar vein - I think the answer for anyone attending court/solicitors offices is to talk like Forrest Gump and start licking the windows......... m
  19. Hi Well even by Swifts standards, that seems incredible!! Get a full breakdown of costs, and fire them off to David Blocksidge at the OFT. With what happened with GMAC recently and the penalties and fines they incurred, you have a strong case. Dont want to add insult to injury, but your home visit I suspect according to Swifts charges will cost you £250 m
  20. Hi Are you sure of your figures? How long was the loan term? Has any court action taken place? I dont understand how the balance is £1400 but with £13500 charges? Are you sure these are charges and not interest due over the term? Check & re post G Thanks m
  21. Hi Landy /SJ Anything of substance in your replies to your complaints you can share with the group? m
  22. Hi SJ, They probably have that many letters to sign from their compliance team and complaints departments that the sheer bulk of them means they dont have sufficient time to sign them properly?
  23. Hi Apollo, Yes you are right - my original loan was for £18K, and I borrowed a further £9K in October 2003. The new loan agreement came through as modified agreement still regulated by the CCA 74. m
  24. Hi Doc They do not charge for a settlement request as it is a regulated agreement. Hey I have found something they dont charge for!! - is that a first?? m
