  1. They did resurface once. We just sent the new DCA the same letter. It'e been months now. I'm an old hand at this - we wil ljust keep on sending the same letter to whoever contacts us until they give up or get statute barrred, whichever comes first. I have a lot more patience than they do!
  2. I had an issue with Virgin Media about early termination fees when I was helping out a friend. The way he was treated was grossly unfair - details don't matter now. However, I wrote to Ofcom about it and they said that they consider early termination fees to be fair PROVIDED they only cover lost profit - actual cost of providing the service has to be deducted for the charge to be fair. This is because, if you cancel, they are saving this amount. I wrote to Virgin Media and told them what Ofcom had said. I asked them to tell me how much it cost them to supply th
  3. Amanda's persistence in this is inspirational. I hope she realises just what she has achieved. Every bank, credit company, HP company (Brighthouse, take note!!), phone company, DCA, etc, etc will have to take notice. We have always known that phoning people 3 times a day for months is harassment. It is now the law. Well done Amanda.
  4. I have absolutely no doubt that, not only is this not an isolated case, but that this is a government policy and has been for a long time. There is no other explanation for the number of cases I come across where the claimant has been treated completely unjustly. 2 examples: 1. A couple we know were evicted and found temporary accommodation. They informed the Job Centre using the correct forms that they had moved (and the Job Centre acknowledge this is the case). They were sanctioned because they failed to turn up for an interview as the appointment was sent to their old address. The
  5. I believe they will if you have a good and valid reason.
  6. I got this e-mail from Stella Creasy suggesting we write to th Acting Chief Operating Officer Lesley Titcombe at the Financial Services Authority to ask her to act urgently. I have e-mailed Lesley Titcombe, perhaps we all can. OFT says Payday Loan industry out of control but Government still opposes caps: Help fight Britain's legal loan sharks by writing to the FCA today! Today the Office of Fair Trading reveals legal loan sharks are out of control in Britain- despite this the Government has again spoken out against

  10. I have made a donation and it is fine to use my real name. Sorry, it's a bit late as I have been away. Martin was a real star who will be surely missed - I am grateful for the opportunity to have met him a couple of times - the last time in ASDA car park!
  11. I've moved this post to its own thread as you had posted on a very old thread. Hopefully, you will get more help this way
  12. Phil I don't think so. The order is for a hearing about her application not about the application itself. The order for a hearing is made without a hearing, though.
  13. Hi Clare What this all means is this: you made an application to the court for an order forcing INCASSO to provide you with cerrtain information. The court has decided that they will only do this once they have had a hearing and that is what the order says. Either INCASSO or you(but why would you?) can object to this hearing. You don't need to do anything at the moment except prepare for the hearing. You should prepare a draft order for the court to make (saves them the bother of working out how to word it and makes sure they don't forget anything) and a list of costs (in case you ge
