  2. The company is a Limited Partnership. His previous company was a Limited Company and has loads of unpaid CCJ's registered against it so I know that I have probably lost the money. I went to court in the naive belief that he wouldn't defend it and then it at least gets legally registered as a debt. My only hope is that as this company is only a year old he might want to settle debts to keep it running (it is a phoenix company. He has tried to dissolve the previous company but it has been stopped by a claimant). He is an absolute rogue trader who has upset quite a lot of people and is well kn
  3. In a nutshell, last July I signed a contract and paid a deposit for £2000 to have solar panels installed. Estimated installation was 29th July. This was stated in the contract and also confirmed in an email that arrived on 30th July. Then silence. Calls were not answered or messages returned. Despite repeated requests for assurance there was nothing forthcoming. When I did manage to speak to the MD he was hostile and behaved like I was a nuisance. So on Sept 3rd I sent a breach of contract (due to the unreasonable length of time) letter requesting refund of deposit in 14 days. Again, nothing.
  4. I was clamped in Bluewater a couple of weeks ago and charged £75 release fee. My anger came from having no knowledge that I had parked illegally - I was apparently on a pedestrain walk way but there was only a small white man painted on the floor of the OPPOSITE bay (not where I was parked) which was obscured from view by another car. The walk way itself actually has large, concrete pillars in the middle and is outlined in white just like the other bays. There are no horizontal stripes, although on closer inspection the tarmac is a faded red which I hadn't noticed. However, I have had

  6. I sued Abbey at the beginning of the year for £1500 through the small claims court - they defended, offered me half and then paid it ALL last week!! So go ahead and sue.....none of these banks want to lose in court (notably - if it has got to court they have conveniently not shown or made a deliberate error so as to claim that they lost by default - that way they keep the floodgates shut) because you WILL get your money back!!
  7. I'm probably being really thick but I can't seem to get the Excel sheet to calculate the right interest. I have downloaded into onto an apple mac - is there any reason why this should make a difference? I'm entering the charge but it's only calculating the interest on the previous days set (i.e. since 2004 when I am entering charges from 2001). Help - need to get the interest right before I can proceed with my claim!
  8. Which user - I'd love to hear the story???
  9. I've had the standard 'bog off' letter - basically blaming me for not being rich enough!! They claim to have refunded charges in the past - WILL THAT AFFECT MY CLAIM AT ALL??? I shall be going ahead with the claim via small claims court this afternoon - quite excited actually!! Is there anything else I should be aware of??
  10. How strange - I had near exact same letter - are they using a template do you think?????
  11. I have received a letter from Abbey this morning saying the standard 'very sorry you are unhappy' blah blah. They have said that they will investigate the matter but to ensure a thorough investigation it will take up to four weeks. Is this ok - I demanded they pay it back in 14 days, should I do anything or just let them have their four weeks???
  12. Does a CCJ last for the rest of your life and does it belong to one specific name or a house i.e. will it be against my maiden name or the property I live in (used to be called black listed??). Beginning to get a bit of cold feet about it now that my anger has subsided. I can see me losing AND ending up with 0 credit rating!!
  13. I sent my letter demanding that they repay my charges to the Abbey address on my statement - should I have sent it somewhere else then?
  14. Do you mean if they do that I should pay the £65 charges? They would have to give me warning of closing an OD wouldn't they?? :? :?
  15. Obviously the subject title is sarcasm!! I have had enough of Abbey National and I posted my letter (taken from the Library) yesterday to great relief!! I have requested the full refund of £1400.00 and now wait with bated breath!! I realise that the loyal workers at Abbey are only doing there job but they must need a good large mug of Horlicks to be able to sleep at night!! I was charged £50 (£30 to allow a DD through and £20 because of going overdrawn) because a Direct Debit for £30 took me £3 overdrawn. When I asked for a refund they maintained their dignified outlook astride th
