  1. No, It isn't worth the hassle. I'll collect the phone, and pay them the balance of the discounted price he quoted. So, there is no regulator for such shops run by some lovely people from certain glorious middle eastern countries? Rather than take them to court, I would spend that money on replacing the screen with the company!
  2. I gave my Honor 7x mmobile phone for repair at a local mobile phone shop, because the screen had a few cracks on it. They agreed to replace the screen for a price of £65. When I went to collect the phone, the new screen had a brownish tinge at the top half. This was not there when I had been using the phone. The chap at the shop was not helpful or understanding in any manner. He said that the supplier provides these screens, and no other phone has had this issue. I asked him to source it from another supplier, and he said it will take many weeks before the screen arrives, and even then he cannot guarantee that the light brown tinting wont be there. I asked him why he had not warned me about this possibility, and he basically said that he cannot guarantee anything. I asked him if he would, at the very least, give me a discount, and he said he can price it down to £55. I had already paid £20 advance for this, by the way. He finally said "It's a replacement screen made in china, so you have to expect small issues. It wont be perfect like a brand new screen from Honor". I have not collected the phone,; told him that I'll be in touch. I'm actually disgusted that he thinks he can push less than ideal repairs on to people. I'm already thinking OFT, etc. but not sure where to begin with this. I really want to do something to make sure he doesn't do this to other unsuspecting customers. ANy guidance in this wuld be immensely helpful! Thanks in advance.
  3. They seem to have a good current account plus savings on the first direct branch
  4. Are you saying it's best to avoid HSBC?
  5. (Didn't want to start a new thread for this since it's related to HSBC) I would like to start an account with HSBC in order to avail of their savings offers. Is this a bad idea in light of the fact that I have a history of debt with them? The debts have been sold on to other companies, but can HSBC refuse to open an account for me because of my history with them?
  6. Is this true? What would I be claiming for? I am extremely annoyed that corporations are allowed to do this to the public.... and would be very interested in doing anything to get them to play by the rules.
  7. Received another Annual Statement from LINK this morning. Question: If LINK go to court with this, can they get a claim on my current car to satisfy the debt??
  8. Best to assume the worst case scenario, and keep money aside for this, since they can go to court anytime before July 2020?
  9. Yes, it has. However, they send me annual statements. Am i correct in thinking that this debt stays on my file till 9/7/2020 ? Strangely, the debt (default) does not show up on any credit report.
  10. Thank you. I tried to reduce it to a small size! :-/ What would LINK's next probable move be?
  11. I've attached the scans. I hope someone can make sense of this, and spot anything of value. Thanks! link sar.pdf
  12. Almost done redacting all 67 pages scanned! Just thought I'd ask how much of this stuff is relevant. Or shall I upload everything (as a handful of PDF files, of course)?
