  2. Hi all, I'd appreciate some help/advice regarding the above please. On 29th September, I parked in a Euro Car Parks location. I paid by phone, and have the receipt/proof of purchase from 14:31 to 17:31 on that date (£3.20; £3 for parking plus the 20p service charge for using the phone service). According to their CCTV, I entered the car park at 14:13. I remember spending quite some time driving round waiting for a space, found one but re-parked (I couldn't get out; it was clearly left as everybody else had that issue!) so it took some time for somebody to leave. I now understand t
  3. Hi All, I had car insurance with Quick Fit back in 2016 and after writing my car off I cancelled my direct debit as I didnt have a car to be insured. I have just noticed an email in my junk mail from Helix Collections chasing me for the "debt" which is now £200 when i think i only owed about £50 to Quick Fit. they have emailed twice in the past two weeks threatening further action and offering a 20% discount. Shall i just keep on ignoring them?? HERE'S THE LATES EMAIL.... Our Ref: XXXXXXXX Debt Type: Kwik-Fit Car In
  4. Hello Consumer Action Group! Having a bit of trouble with what I have found out to be a gym contract. The timeline of events is as follows March 2018: Was given an introductory Jiu Jitsu lesson at Gracie Barra Barnsley. After this I then paid £60 up front and signed a direct debit mandate so they could start one with my bank. They specifically told me this is not a contract and only like one in that fees can go up if I want to go to more advanced classes. August 2018: After attending for 3 months I was unable to continue due to other commitments and the fact that the schedule th
  5. Hello. today i received a letter from zenith collections saying they want me to pay £160.00 for an unauthrorised parking charge. the address this was sent to is my old address not where i am living now as me and my wife separated in June 2017. i think the other letters from smart parking have also gone there, which ive never seen or been aware of. they are asking me to pay the £160.00 by 17/12/2018 or theyll start court proceedings and ill have to pay solicitors fees court fees etc. i parked by a local health centre not knowing it was smart parking for the health centre
  6. Hoping for some help here. I was getting chased for a debt to Lending Stream that I didnt remember getting, however Asset Collections was chasing me so I was speaking to them a few times and the debt was from Several years ago. I agreed to pay it back to get it off my chest, however, on one call, I was told by the advisor that my DOB didnt match the debt therefore the debt was not mine. So I asked to receive original copies of the credit agreements. Next thing I knew, I received a CCJ notice from Laganside Courts and since then I have been in dispute with TM Legal services reg
  7. Hi, I have received a claim form from northampton bulk centre with asset collections as the claimant. The original loan was from lending stream who sold it to asset, I dont mind paying it but the amount has grown somewhat from the last dca who chased it and i cant afford to pay that much back. I have responded to the claim at moneyclaim. help needed please
  8. Hi all, I need some advise on how to deal with HRMC and stop them from coming to my house, applying crazy charges, taking my goods and making me bankrupt (which will cause me to lose my new job) all down to a problem with self assessment tax , charges and interest from claiming child benefit. Really don't know what to do but I know that they can reclaim tax by adjusting the tax code which I assumed had already happened as my online tax code seemed to change ever few months . A collection office turned up at my door last week, demanded £75 for his visit and i
  9. Long story - old outstanding debt with Lending Stream got sold to Asset who wanted to take me to court. I defended and was referred to mediation which I thought was successful. I have been religiously paying the amounts agreed since last August and now I am emailed by their 'accounts' department stating that they have not received my payment. The reference number also does not correspond to that of the original agreement. I have sent them PDF proof that I have made the payment and they advised me to contact their litigation team with the evidence. The email address th
  10. Hi. i have read through quite a few similar threads (Including one very similar and very recent), but will submit my own anyway. Name of the Claimant ?

  11. Hey guys, Ive recently started receiving emails and letters the latest one says contact them within 10 days of the letter at my address. i took out a loan with Advant Credit a few years back and since then been in and out of work and now am slowly getting back on my feet as i declared myself bankrupt but have a restriction put in place untill 2021 something like that about 6 years ago & have these coming through the door. i was making payments didnt miss one repayment etc and then the direct debits stopped coming out so i just assumed i had paid it off about 8-10 months b
  12. Loan in partners name who is currently in very bad mental health. Have a claim form for old Lending stream loans from Asset collections. He wont be able to go to court, can I try and defend this or is it pointless? Also they have lumped at least 3 maybe 4 loans into one for this claim, can they do that? I know you will ask for the info from the letter but I probably wont be able to post it up until tomorrow sorry.
  13. Hi Been a while since I posted after being very active here once upon a time.. .about 6 years ago I got a few pay day loans (marriage split at the time, living away) At the time none of these places were doing the correct checks to see if you could afford the repayments. Wonga have previously written off £900 with me for the same reason... One or two others haven't bothered. Lending Stream sold this particular one to Asset and they've been chasing ever for a while... They have now taken me to court, despite my repeated requests for proof that the correct credit c
  14. I had several loans from LS and repaid them, in the end I had 3 for about 300 each and became ill, self employed stopped paying and ignored them. Asset collections and investigations Ltd sent me a letter eventually saying they'd bought the loan for amount of 1475-00. They made me several offers to pay a reduced amount but I didn't have that either so ignored them. They said they'd take me to court which they did to CC Business Center who found in their favour and wants 1544-00 paid to Asset collections ect. I dont remember ever receiving a 'claim form' but the cour
  15. Anyone heard of these? Are they another in house collections unit of minicredit/opus limited? I've had an outstanding balance of 1,336.20 in which they claim they are owed from a loan that started at 220.00 in which 19.50 of that 220.00 I never even saw... I rang them and they said they will not even knock a single penny of this balance off at all... Saying it's in the T+C's etc... They only offered a chance to pay back in installments and with that sum of money they are asking for they can have a pound a month from me! Anyone know what to do in beating the crap out o
  16. Hi, I am hoping for some advice and i have heard i am in the right place. 10/2015 - I received notification from Northampton County Courts Re an unpaid parking ticket issued by Blackpool Council. The car was one which I was the registered keeper of, however I was going through a separation at the time and was unable to agree ownership of the car with my ex partner. The car was in her possession during the period the ticket was issued. I wrote to the county courts and to Blackpool council, detailing the above. The courts agreed to cancel the case however Blackpool council never b
  17. Hi All.

  18. About 7 years ago my wife had a gastric band fitted and subsequently had 'topups' She went for a topup about a year ago and when the bill came in it was £280. The previous band fills had been about £100. I have refused to pay as I feel that, while I understand prices go up over time, this is an unacceptable amount to increase. They now have passed the matter over to ICON collections who call frequently and while they don't intimidate us it is very annoying especially when they tell my daughter who they are and why they are calling! I am not disputing that we ne
  19. Have been ignoring my 6 Payday loans and 4 other debts for several months now, the other companies don't appear to have put disproportionate amount of interest on to the debt but my Toothfairy loan has gone from the original amount of £300 up to £1438 since I took the loan out in late July and I get this email from them every 5 days: We are writing to give you formal notice that ToothFairy Finance Ltd - ToothFairy Pay Day Loan has legally assigned the rights of the above debt to Marshall Hoares Bailiffs. This means that Marshall Hoares Bailiffs Limited now legally own this debt.
  20. Hi, and thank you in advance for any help and guidance on this matter. I requested a cca from Lowell regarding a debt of £9000 (which consists of mainly interest charges) from very catalogue. They eventually returned an in signed agreement that has discrepancies on. There appears to be 2 different dates they state the account was opened, one is 07/12/2008 and an alleged credit agreement with an electronic tick for my signature dated 29/06/2011 The total debt is for £9,000.38 Of which £6,434.63 is made up of interest. I am wondering what my next step is,
  21. have been getting letters from lowells for an alleged debt to 3 mobile. ..for about 400 quid. ..which is strange as paid by direct debit never late never ever missed a payment. ...have ignored lowells and they have now passed to bpo!! i do love a tryer.. ...now there is obviously no cca to ask for.. ..am wondering why lowelifes have passed this on???
  22. Good Morning! Does anyone know how I can stop a door collection agent from Provident attending my home? I missed a payment collection date and was unable to notify the agent as my phone died. The agent then attended my property 4 times that evening knocking loudly from 9pm. Has anyone dealt with Provident before? The whole doorstep collection process for the sake of £100 loan is getting ridiculous. If I can come to an arrangement and deal directly with them that would be ideal. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks very much. Kind regards P
  23. Hi, I was hoping to possibly get some advice. My kids where at a private school (fees paid till the end of the school year). Then this happens.. . http://www.shernoldschool.co.uk/118972__1.pdf and http://www.kentonline.co.uk/maidstone/news/shernold-school-inadequate-staff-checks-97172/ at which point we withdrew the kids from the school and moved them elsewhere. We have told the school that we where not happy (so have others) and we would not be paying the notice period (although the bill they have sent us appears to only be for half of the term Fas
  24. Given the seriousness of this thread, it really does need to get wide coverage. Accordingly, I would hope that the moderators allow it to remain on this section of the forum. Sadly, this is not the first time that I have taken issue with documentation from DCBL. There is a long thread on here regarding this firm and their letters regarding private parking debts (more later). This firm are also behind the TV series....Can't Pay...We Will Take it Away. Yesterday, I was contacted by a gentleman who had received a letter from DCBL the previous day. The letter was received by post and w
