  1. Hi guys, I've just sent Lee a PM re this. I must admit I was a wee bit dubious about giving personal details via the site, but Lee came up trumps. Any Vodafone customers who are having issues, I'd recommend that if you're asked for details over the net by Lee, go for it. My other two defaults are coming off in the next few weeks as they are due to expire, won't be long before I have a clean slate now. Once again Lee, thank you fella
  2. Hi Guys, A little update on what's been going on. I have just checked my credit report after having received some correspondence from Lee Vodafone. True to his word, the default has now been removed from my file. Lee, thank you very much for your help and assistance in getting this removed, your help was very gratefully appreciated. One default down, two to go
  3. Mr H, The engineer on site said that the original maker of the boiler, no longer produced the paet and that BG do not use patent parts under any circumstances. As for checking the seal, apparently it is part of the safety check. Also, when I checked the technical drawing, the part wasn't even showing. ( I can read technical drawings). This was explained away as, if it's not on the drawing, then it's no longer available. So when I asked how he knew which part number to order, he couldn't give a responsible answer. Hope this helps
  4. Quick version of a long story guys. I have my boiler serviced annually by British Gas under their Homecare 400 Contract. Last service June 2009. Boiler packed up a couple of weeks ago so I got them out to repair it. Engineer then informed me that a certain seal had perished and that as a result, the boiler was immediately condemned on safety grounds. He then proceeded to disconnect the boiler by cutting away the supply pipe. Now I don't have an issue with the engineer on the day, he was doing what he was supposed to be doing. I have a couple of issues with this: 1 Using 20 years of personal experience in engineering, I know it takes a lot longer than 16 weeks for a seal to perish. I should say that I dealt with seals on a daily basis in my previous job, and in my experience, it takes a lot longer than this to perish. The local area manager is adamant that they do. 2 British Gas have on their records the age of my boiler but have continued to increase my payments year on year, even though they sent out flyers informing me that they may not be able to repair the boiler, should it go wrong, because of the age. Now I have to spend in the region of 3 to 4 thousand for a new boiler. We have no heating or hot water because a seal costing around £3-00 is no longer available to British Gas. Where do I stand here guys? Someone at British Gas is telling lies. There is a working carbon monoxide detector about one and a half feet away from this boiler, and it has never gone off for a boiler problem. British Gas were happy enough to take all that money off me, but I feel I have had very little back. They obviously now want the work to replace the boiler, two chances methinks. Can I claim anything back from them? And how would I escalate the original issue with the perished seal? Any help would, as usual, be very gratefully appreciated.
  5. Little Johnny watched his daddy's car pass by the school playground and go into the woods.Curious, he followed the car and saw Daddy and Aunt Jane in a passionate embrace. Little Johnny found this so exciting that he could hardly contain himself as he ran home and started to tell his mother.'Mummy, I was at the playground and I saw Daddy's car go into the woods with Aunt Jane. I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, and then he helped her take off her shirt.Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane...' At this point Mummy cut him off and said, 'Johnny, this is such an interesting story, lets save the rest of it for supper time.I want to see the look on Daddy's face when you tell it tonight.' At the dinner table that evening, Mummy asked little Johnny to tell his story Johnny started his story, 'I was at the playground and I saw Daddy's car go into the woods with Aunt Jane.I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, then he helped her take off her shirt. Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane and Daddy started doing the same thing that Mummy and Uncle Bill used to do when Daddy was away on the oil rigs.'
  6. A young country boy phones his dad and says "dad i have hit a pig with the truck, and he's stuck in the bull bars hollering,what will I do?" Dad says "shoot the pig and put him outa his misery" Boy says "ok pa back in a minute" 2 shots ring out !! Boy comes back on phone "pa what will i do with his patrol bike????" :D :D
  7. Done it through Internet Banking Zazen, so a trail is there. Have mailed these leeches a few times now telling them not to phone me and that everything has to be put in writing. I paid SP the exact amount, have no intentions of paying the **** their money as well. If they do contact me, the letters will be filed in the big round cabinet.
  8. Hi Buzby, Vodafone have already indicated that they can find no record of my account details, in spite of having every detail they need. Ach we'll see what happens
  9. Quick update on this: Paid exact amount owed direct to Scottish Power, but there is a difference of about £35-00 between DCA's figure and SP's. As far as I'm concerned, I've paid what was due to the company I had my contract with. Can these leeches (the dca) come back and chase me for their supposed fees???
  10. Just got confirmation of e mail to Experian sent ages ago, that they'd received my mail on the 4th of August, don't they move faster than a speeding snail Experian say they can only ask Vodafone to have a look at the default, but they can't force them.
  11. Sorry for the delay in responding people... She cancelled it via the internet banking system, and it was around three weeks before the payment was due to come out. She definetely did not reinstate it. This has caused her to incur bank charges yet again, and also fall behind in her car payments.
  12. Can they do this??? She cancelled it as she is currently out of work, told them she was doing it, they were not exactly ok with it, but agreed apparently. Next thing she knows, they tried to take the money out, cue bank charges etc...
  13. Received this from Experian. Hopefully they will have more clout with Vodafone than poor old me. Got this on the 30th July, I sent my mail to Experian on the 19th. How long do Vodafone have to act on the enquiry from Experian??? "THE CONSUMER HAS DISPUTED THE ACCURACY OF THIS ENTRY AND WE HAVE THEREFORE ASKED THE PROVIDER TO INVESTIGATE IT. GIVEN THAT THIS DATA IS DISPUTED, PLEASE TAKE CARE IF MAKING AN ASSESSMENT OF ANY KIND THAT MAY INCLUDE THIS DATA." Archway
