  1. I signed up with The AA in 2015 for £99 a year (paid monthly). I just always assumed it was £99 as the website didn't state otherwise as far as I could see. I've checked it today and found I have been paying over £204 a year ever since the first year was up. I called them to complain, and the person said I would have had confirmation of the price in the post before it was due for renewal, and if I didn't call then I wouldn't get a better price (Why do I have to call!?). I don't recall getting these letters, and I keep everything, but I don't have that letter. I for sure check every letter I get, and I wouldn't have accepted a 100%+ price increase! I called back to their complaints to a guy who spends his life listening to people complain, and he just dismissed me saying I agreed when I took it out. I asked for a copy of the document several times but he just kept saying it would have been on the website at the time. I told him that the person I spoke to before said about it being in the renewal letters and then they relented and said they would send me copies. I want to dispute that I ever gave permission to a 100% price increase as I don't recall ever doing this, they seem to be unable to provide me with the terms and conditions I apparently agreed to. Realistically, what are my chances of getting my money back?
  2. I had an outstanding council tax debt of £79.20 for last years council tax 2017. Today out the blue I got a visit from 2 sheriff officers and now my council tax has doubled to £158.30. They have doubled my debt! I am on ESA. How the hell is this legal, The council tax year only started in April. This seems completely out of order and so hurried for such a small debt, They never even gave me a chance to pay, Now they are saying the fees can't be removed cause they sent officers out. This has enraged me, What can i do? Thanks
  3. Daughter has a 3rd party run in to her head on while 3rd party was on the wrong side of road. Claim going through but policy has just doubled been in comparison websites and got new quotes from Hastings half the current price even though we disclosed the accident on their. Car was only bought after doing 2 quotes one before test and other after when change was made policy rose more than on quote for having just past test but now she has received a letter saying insurance will be over 4000 for year. Latest quote we declared accident andcar as write off was valued at 920 by engineer and said it would cost more to repair. Veryconcernedby some of the comments on here as by the time they take access off that she was going to replace car and continue with cover but reading some of the comments on here about Hastings demanding full annual premium worried as that would mean she has lost car will get no money and still owe them over 3500 for the pleasure of some idiot driving round avens on the wrong side of road in to her. If that's the case she will motbe able to afford a replacement car never mind replacing it and the fees that they charge to change the car on policy. Can anyone from Hastings advise?

  6. Please can someone help, I've read so much on these forums but can't seem to understand my next steps, Am trying to get HSBC to remove a default notice off my credit file, as my mortgage has double. They chased me for over a year and ignored them, I had some letters from Moorcroft and maybe other DCA over a year ago stating stuff like HSBC had sold the debt or they would take me to court etc, but I just ignored them. but its been quite for the last 14 months, as I ignored everything. Debt was rung up by my husband and then he ran off while I was away and I told HSBC it was a fraud but they refused to accept this, even knowing I was out the country and not able to make the purchases. I even am willing to even start paying them like £50 a month so they can remove the default so my mortgage can lower by alot more then £50. Please kindly provide any help possible. ________________________________________________________________________________ I sent them the following letter: HSBC Bank Card Services, Credit Card Number: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Dear HSBC, After obtaining a copy of my credit file from Experian I was concerned to note that your company has placed a "Default" notice against an account in my name. You have responded to Experian stating that I should contact you directly at the above in regards to this matter. The “default” on my Experian report, the account started date is xx/xx/1999 and the default date is xx/xx/2011 with a default Balance of £12,110. Further to this I do not have a recollection of ever receiving such a notice, and I therefore require you to substantiate this data at your earliest convenience. 1. You must supply me with a true copy of the alleged agreement you refer to. This is my right under your obligation to supply a copy of the agreement under the legislation contained within s.78 (1) Consumer Credit Act 1974 (s.77 (1) for fixed sum credit). Your obligation also extends to providing a statement of account. I enclose a £1 postal order in payment of the statutory fee, Postal Order Serial Number_____________________________. 2. You must supply me with a signed true and certified copy of the original default notice, because I do not recollect receiving this. 3. Any deed of assignment if the debt was sold on. I would request that this data is provided to myself within the next 14 days, if you are unable to provide this data then I must insist that it is removed from my files as unsubstantiated. Yours Sincerely, _____________________________ After 16 days I send a reminder to them as they did not reply the reminder was as follows: HSBC Bank Card Services, Credit Card Number: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Dear HSBC, Further to my letter I wrote and sent to you on xx September 2012 via recorded delivery, I haven’t had any response, please find copy of the letter and recorded delivery slip attached. Noting the above could you please kindly respond to my original letter dated xx September 2012, a copy of which is attached and accordingly answer in full the 3 questions contained in the original letter, with which I also sent a postal order. I believe it is your duty and you are under obligation to supply me with the requested information within a given time. Again I request that you provide me with all the requested data in my original letter, within the next 14 days, once again I state if you are unable to provide this data then I must insist that it is removed from my files as unsubstantiated. Yours Sincerely, ___________________________________ Today on the 3rd of Ocrober they responded with this: Dear Madam, Please find enclosed copy documents as requested for your perusal. Section 78 (1) of the consumer credit act 1974 requires us to provide "...a copy of the executed agreement (if any)...". Regulation 3 (2) of the consumer credit (cancellation notices and copies of documents) Regulations 1983 allows that certain items may be omitted form such copies, including the signature box and signature. They copy of the executed agreement we must supply is a copy but need not be a photocopy of the signed agreement. Regulation 7 of those regulations also requires us to provide a copy of the executed agreement, as varied, where there is a power to vary the terms of agreement, which there is with your client's card agreement and that power has been exercised to vary the agreement, which again is the case with your client's card agreement. We therefore enclose an up to date copy of the terms and conditions applicable to your clients account, a copy of the latest variation notice issued in respect of your client's account and a reconstituted copy of the agreement form. The variation notice shows that the terms have been varied and therefore in accordance with this legislation the up to date terms and conditions are the appropriate information to produce. With regard to the Signed Application form that you made request for, we have conducted a reasonable search, and at the time of the request, the document could not be located. It was in our control but is no longer in our possession. Therefore we have enclosed a reconstituted copy along with two certified statements duly stamped and signed for your records validating any debt outstanding. Enclosures: Appendix 1 Current Terms and conditions Appendix 2 Notice of Variation to Terms Appendix 3 Historic Terms and Conditions Appendix 4 Copy of Agreement form Appendix 5 copy of Statements Connie Smith. ___________________________________________________________ This what they sent Appendix 1 Current Terms and conditions - these are just standard printed out t and c's Appendix 2 Notice of Variation to Terms -these are also just standard print outs Appendix 3 Historic Terms and Conditions -these are again print outs, please note they all are HSBC - when my account opened it was Midland Appendix 4 Copy of Agreement form -this looks like a newly printed sheet with just my name and old address hand written on it view it here: i1281.photobucket.com/albums/a502/fryman1/HSBC_zpsb16295fe.jpg Appendix 5 copy of Statements -freshly printed out credit card statements for August and September 2012 with a HSBC stamp on them with a sign over it Please advise what is next letter I should send, or how to get out this default.
