  1. I wrote to the CEO at Maidenhead on 9th Sept and have had no reply, but I have had no more threatening letters etc. Not sure if it has now been put to bed to will come back to haunt me at some point in the future?
  2. We were told that to service our twin axle caravan the cost was £250. We also required additional work and we would pay to have done. We were phoned by the dealer and told cost was £279 which was fair enough for the extra work as labour charge is £60 an hour. On collection they added on extras like oil, grease and brake cleaner at £8, CO2 gas check at £3 and 32mm Alko flange at £18. On the two previous occasions the charge of £250 included oil, grease, brake cleaner and Alko flange which is a one shot nut. the caravan has done 1050 miles since it's last ser
  3. The issue has been resolved amicably and to the satisfaction of both parties. Stood my ground and they agreed I was correct as I had all the paperwork to hand.
  4. Thanks and tried that route. Seems they can for Jeeps up to about 2010, but not the newer versions. I even tried an ex-Jeep franchise and same answer although they can service and reapir Jeeps, if a repair is done where the software needs to be updated, I need to go to a franchsie dealer and cost is about £120. I am wondering if a Subject Access Request can be made showing all documentation including a read out from the ECU on the Jeep?
  5. In the T&Cs there is no definition for MOT Check & Repair 12 month cover £750. Actually it is not even mentioned at all in the T&Cs. I have track of the emails disputing the service regime and that is not being disputed any more. The issue being disputed is that under the service contract as per the "12 month cover £750" the MOT, minor fault and advisories should have been repaired. In addition, their own health check indicated that the rear discs were 60% corroded and I am of the opinion they should have been repaired at the time of the service. They quoted me nea
  6. Earlier in Sept I was concerned about a warning message on the dashboard of my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee bought second hand in 2018 with full Jeep dealer service history and 60k on the clock. The Jeep was due for its MOT and service on 21st Sept. I did not buy from the dealer in question and it is not on finance. The warning was regarding a message "Serv 4WD" plus the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Activation light glowing. I had a 3 year service plan with the Jeep dealership and this covered up to £750 of repairs that may be required as a result of the MOT or service. It was
  7. Eventually I sent a recorded letter to them about a month ago regarding cancelled contract. No reply. I think I will need to pay to check my credit file to make sure they have not trashed it. Unfortunately I do not know which organisation Three use to conduct credit checks.
  8. Thanks. Still do not want any debt collectors banging on my door while we are away. Our big concern is them trashing my credit file.
  9. I have been a Three customer for over 10 years and the current contract was coming to an end in May 5th and that is where it all went downhill. We are getting totally exasperated by Three and no matter how times you call or write to them they simply ignore your message. Back in April on 23rd I bought a Three sim card from Three on contract for £16 a month to replace my current sim card. However I had second thoughts later in the day and contacted them via their “Chat” on the Three website on the same day to cancel. I told them that I wanted to cancel, but the per
  10. There is a charge to phone the Embassy and it can work out to be quite expensive. There are zero entitlement to help in SA and you are on your own. Neither the mother or father if he was still alive would have been affected by the change in age for pension. As far as I am aware no occupational pensions in place. As said it is a very complex situation and in order to keep head above water daughter would need a minimum income of R45000 (£2500) a month just to survive.
  11. Thanks. Husband and wife born and worked in UK until about 1976 and the returned in 1996 and worked in UK until about 2016 when husband passed away age 66 years. He was working at the time. Would the wife be entitled to anything extra as husband had obviously paid NI and never claimed state pension? They are obviously scratching for any sort of money at present as she is broke and husband is now refusing to give her any money although she supported him for neatly 4 years. It is not cheap doing anything in South Africa as just to travel to Embassy would cost her in excess of R1000 even tho
  12. Mother and father worked here and then went to SA in about 1978 returning to UK in about 1996 and worked here until 2016 when her husband died at age 66. He was still working at the time. She then went to live with daughter in SA. Mother only claims for her pension.
  13. This is not our issue, but an issue with a friend. Our friend is living in South Africa and now suffers from dementia and is in a home. The daughter has been paying for the home however the daughter was made redundant and has a child to support. Daughter's husband keeps kicking her out of the house with the 3 year old boy and daughter had nowhere to go. The mother and daughter both have British passports. Mother and father(now deceased) are British born, but daughter was born in South Africa. The 3 year old was born in in South Africa. Daughter is now broke and cannot keep the moth
  14. Ho Ho Ho. another good belly laugh and do you you think gives them these awards for lying? I am against hunting Foxes as I believe it is immoral and cruel.
  15. HB and yourself are hilarious and my sides are aching even more. Next you will be telling us that the earth is flat! Can any journalist present the true facts instead of letting a good story get in the way? Unfortunately I along with many others have been on the receiving end twice due to the distorted facts presented by the media.
