  1. Had a letter earlier this week from: Absolute Locate Dear Mr x We require your assistance to verify information on behalf of a client. This is part of an investigation we are currently conducting Please contact ect ect No, I have not responded, and don't intend too. Letter states this registered office is for a Nat Bourner Huddersfeild HD2 1GN CCL 579084 DPLN ZA019311 Having done some homework and looking on this group, they are not who they say they are First off, the CCL 579084 is incorrect, Consumer credit number 579084 is for a Natalie Al
  2. I have been charged again for DATA usage on my vodafone account i used 16.5GB of data. and my allowance is 20GB of data. I have documented proof of this. So up till the point a data test drive was added to my account i was within my allowance. The problem is vodafones system haven't updated and in doing so they have been billing me for everything over 12GB. So i go out and get a new contract after being told it would sort this problem out, and notes even a new connection didn't sort this out. so i returned the phone to the store and ported my number out and went with 02. Th
  3. I've only been with BT since the 26th June and they have literally made a mess of absolutely everything! First their system failed to process my original online order. This only came to light when my equipment didn't arrive and phone to inquire. As a result my order was delayed by 2 days. They re-processed my order incorrectly, completely different package than I had ordered. Not sure why but I received the equipment three times!! They changed my phone number (which I've had for 23 years) despite me asking them not to, they promised to reinstate it. This promised on th
  4. Well folks, back in October 2014, I was seeking a good new computer and at PC World in Plymouth I came across am Asus All-in-One ET2020 PC for just over £300. I purchased the new computer after thinking about it for a few days, also decided to take the care plan at £4 per month believing that it would give me all round protection should anything happen. on the 17th February 2015, the worst did happen when the PC developed a fault with the TV tuner card. I duly took it back armed with my care plan agreement and all receipts to the PC World Plymouth store I was greet
  5. Would anyone be so kind as to tell me what wording I should use to apply on a County Court Order to make an striking out order absolute. The Claim was Struck out by the Judge and gave the Claimants the right to apply to get it set aside within 7 days. The Claimants who happen to be a firm of solicitors did not apply to get it set aside and are now a long time outside the 7 days. Yet they are still chasing me for the debt and saying they will get the order set aside if I do not pay. Would anyone be able to tell me how I can go back to the Courts and now get the order made abs
  6. Hi All, I received a letter from the above with the following wording: "Dear xxx We require your assistance to verify information on behalf of a client. This is part of an investigation we are currently conducting. In order to progress our enquiry we would greatly appreciate it if you could contact os on FREEPHONE 0800 xxx xxxx, or alternatively contact us via our website. Yours sincerely, Mr. Thomas Investigations Manager Absolute Locate" Obviously I will not be contacting them; I have no debts 'in play'; anything I had SB by now, but who are these peopl
  7. In a nutshell:- Sent package worth £400 with myHermes. Insured it to max (£250) and paid extra for 'signature required' Customer contacts me to say package hasn't turned up, I contact myHermes who say it was left in a shed, customer replies that they do not have a shed. I lodge a claim through their customer service who offer £263 compensation, despite me proving it was worth much more. I could understand that in the case of breakage etc but seeing as I paid extra for them to require a signature and they just ignored that is there any way I could get full value back? Thanks
  8. Hi I was wondering about Absolute Locate. I have just rec'd letter addressed to son (Okay I have got his permission to open his mail!!) from Absolute Locate. Same thing verify information, investigation currently conducting etc etc. My son had two a/c that were being pursed one by Lowell & Red and the other by MacKenzie Hall & Clarity. These were the only two debts he had. I know 100% that he has not racked up any more debt as he is in Asia! I contacted both sets of these companies way back in 2013 and told them in no distinct terms that he has never lived at t
  9. I am in the same boat as many others, i had a foxy account from around 2009 and in 2011 i opened a wink account, i had no idea they were the same company and after a while i closed the wink account and told the CM it was because i was trying to save money, she told me all of your other accounts with us will be closed. ..great i thought as this was the only one, my foxy account remained open and i have regularly deposited and even updated my details, i have never withdrawn though as i have never won anything substantial until this week when i won £300 i wit
  10. Hi everyone looking for some advice on this one. Will try to keep brief but is a bit of a story. Early to mid 2010 changed banks and left an overdraught and personal loan with old bank which could not repay. Got the usual letters from the bank then from triton credit services up until late 2010 then all stopped. fast forward to sep 2011 letters arrives in post one for me one for my partner from land registry. It turns out i have a ccj and eversheds are behind it acting for my old bank. Also a charging order is well through its process of being issued.
  11. Hi all This is the most difficult thing ive ever written,started claiming child tax credits and working tax credits about 10 yrs ago. about a year after claiming partner started a part time job working 5 hours per week Stupidly took advice from workmates that i didnt need to inform HMRC shortly after this partner got more hrs now working 15hrs week stupidly didnt tell HMRC. Why i listened to these people i dont know As the years rolled on i felt i was on runaway train i wanted to tell HMRC but was afraid of the outcome. I now know i should have informed them straight away but i d
  12. Please accept my apologies initially for how angry i am today!. Bought a car from Sheffield Carcraft last year despite very pushy and rude sales as my partner never had credit before she struggled elsewhere. The car was lovely, she enjoyed driving and we were happy. Within 6 months we took the car for its service as it didn't have any history. Thats when the 1st bit of doubt crept in. When my wife went to pick it up, your team had her stood there for 30 minutes plus as they couldn't find the keys, they looked everywhere and couldn't find them. They hen
  13. So after about 8 hours on the phone to various people and 3 visits to Vodafone shops I have now been told my number cannot be transferred. My old contract with 3 finished and I decided to move to Vodafone PAYG. I transferred my PAC code on 27/02/13 and expected a smooth transfer. How wrong could I be. I was initially informed it would be done within 2 working days. By 04/03/13 it still had'nt been transferred hence me calling Vodafone after 1 hour trying to get through I gave up and decided to go into store where I was told ot would be done within a few days by 08/03/2013 it still wa
  14. Hi all, this query is out of my comfort zone (I try to help in the bailiff forum) The person who has contacted me has a shop, like most businesses they felt the recession and that led to overdue electricity bills. They phoned Eon way back in February and all they got was someone 'speaking over them' who clearly had no intention of listening or being of any help.(call was recorded) At that time they asked for a repayment plan but got told to write in with their proposals, they did that but again never got a reply but from the date of that letter they have made substantial weekly pa
