  1. Ok heres the deal. I signed up for a 3 month virgin active membership back around july, after one months use I wanted to cancel, they wouldnt agree and the idiot manager would not even agree to simply talk with me. I didn't use the gym in the last two months but they don't care and the contract doesn't of course. Arc debt collection has been dealing with me, I owed around £170 or something in total ive already paid £90 worth, maybe that was the wrong decision but I do not want to pay them the remainder. I've set loads of dates to pay and many I have not pai
  2. Hi all, just looking for a bit of confirmation if you dont mind. Got a letter this morning from Wright Hassle representing Cabot saying that their client has given them full instructions to enforce a CCJ made against me on xx/08/2007. They intend to do this by way of an AOE Order. They point out that they are aware the Judgement is over six years old but they expect to be successful given the number of attempts that they, and their client have made to resolve this matter with me. They do say though that they would like to avoid this Application. Apart from the odd lette
  3. I was with EE for a relatively short period before I went to another company - GB energy who have subsequently gone bust. The thing that struck with EE was that their bills never made any sense to me. From a period covering 28/01/2015 to 25/01/2016, I received 4 bills: Bill a) covering period between 28/01/2015 -10/04/2015 shown I was in debit by -£30.32 ( received on 11/05/2015) Bill b) covering period between 28/01/2015 -05/10/2015 shown I was in credit by £171.189 ( received on 07/01/2016) Bill c) covering period between 28/01/2015- 05/10/2015 shown I was in
  4. Hi All I've been a silent reader of this excellent forum for some time now, but as of now I need a little help/friendly advice. I had an old stlye SLC loan (pre-97) which I'd deferred for many, many years, moving address along the way. Hadn't heard anything for years, then some Erudio letters arrived via an old address, which I ignored (not always the best course of action), and recently I've also received letters from Capquest who I gather are one and the same. Alongside this, I've had calls/texts and have been harassed extensively. Occasionally, I've tried to engage in co
  5. I have been with vodafone for years so would like to think I'm a valued customer. I've never had problems up until now. I switched in september from a 2 year contract to a sim only contract. In my bundle i was meant to have 20GB of data. In my old 2 year contract i had 12GB of data. Anyway whats happened is that when they have changed my tariff, one half of vodafone system says i am entitled to 20GB of data, yet the other half of there system has been changed to reflect. So whats been happening is that every bit of data that i go over 12GB is being charged for. So last month i questioned
  6. Six months ago I transferred my electricity account to a relatively new supplier in the UK Extra Energy. I understand this company has German parents. I have been trying to get a bill from them for the past two months to no avail. When contacted by telephone nothing is resolved not even a change of e-mail address. They are charging me by way of Direct Debit over double that charged by my previous supplier Npower, who are not renowned for their competiveness. I told them by e-mail that if I did not have a bill within 3 working days I would cancal my Direct Debit.
  7. Hi Everyone, I have a few questions and I'm hoping to get some advice. I joined xcercise4less where I stay for university in Nov '13 on a year long contract and then cancelled the membership in Oct '14, which I believe means I paid for all 12 months of the contract. After I cancelled, letters were sent to my parent's address from CRS saying that I owed money. Now the "debt" has been passed on to Zinc and is somewhere in the region of £200. I spoke to them on the phone, which was probably ill-advised a few weeks ago, and, if I remember correctly, the majority of the charge was fr
  8. Afternoon! Really really hoping you guys can offer some advice. I have received a claim form from Northampton County Court Business Centre, SUM is for 664 inclusinve of costs. I have parked in a private "wasteland" car park, tucked away on the side of a building, subsequent to this i did receive PCN's however took local advice and one even from a police office to simply ignore. Having ignored these (first dated 03/10/2014) I have today received the claim letter along with a letter from the solicitors detailing the particlulars of claim. I wouild like to defend this cas
  9. Evening All, Does anyone know how the energy companies are supposed to inform you your tariff/deal is coming to an end?? Mine (Scottish Power) came to an end October 31st 2014 but i didn't receive any letter/email 42-49 day prior to this date informing me it was ending. I received (via SP online portal) an annual statement on 4th November and included in this was one line stating 'you may want to think about changing' Then on the 2nd December i received an email (again via the Scottish Power portal) that my tariff had changed!! I know its March now but i didn't read the
  10. Hi I am a first time poster and I am looking for some advice Last November I received a letter from Northampton County court relating to a claim from Wright Hassle acting on behalf of Cabot claiming £9k from an original credit card I had with Marbles. I defended the claim and made a CPR request to Wright Hassle, Cabot and Marbles. I received notification from the court that my case has been allocated to the small claims court. Marbles responded to my CPR with a package of statements dating from 2003 to date. They have not supplied my original agreement as requested a
  11. Hi My vehicle was broken into. I called up autoglass. They asked me the type of insurance i had which i told them it was third party fire & theft. They then asked me if i had glass cover to which i said i dont know or i think so as i didnt have my policy documents with me. They came the following day and fixed the glass on the basis that i had glass cover. A few months down the line they contacted me saying my insurance company said i do not have glass cover, which i consequently verified. Now they are chasing me a ridiculous amount of money. I made a complaint to them that when
  12. Sorry if this in the wrong section. Hubby has o/s debt which has been passed from cabot to hamptons. I am pretty sure it is over 6 yrs old but I will have to get the paperwork out at the weekend. They constantly text his mobile but he hasn't spoken to them. 3 weeks ago he took over a business (inc phone number). The telephone company is Titan telecom (i know there are **** but there is 2 yrs left on the contract!). The first odd thing was a couple of days after he took over - he had about 10 phone calls on his mobile from utility companies trying to get his business. He pays the la
  13. so, I have an ex partner, and it seems she used an ebay address of mine a few years ago to sey up an ebay account. the account has a balance owing and every week for the last 3 or so years I have recieved an email threatening me with further action. the account is not in my name, but my email address has been used. multiple times i have replied to the email and had an answer back saying that they would et back to me with a solution. they never have. what is the best course of action, it's not so much an issue as just damn annoying!
  14. We reported to the council that the tree growing on their land has branches that are affecting the telephone line. The branches were pressing up hard against the line straining it almost to breaking point. After much arguing with the council who denied all liability, BT Openreach was persuaded to cut the branches which they did but emphasise that it was not their responsibility and that they would probably bill the council. It has taken several weeks to get the branches cut and we still think that the tree is the council's responsibility and not BT Openreach as after all the tree is maint
  15. Morning all, my first post but I've been lurking for some time! I have recently sent off 3 CCA requests to my Credit Card companies with no satisfactory reply. I sent the account in dispute letter to all 3 on Tuesday, they all received them yesterday. My question is, Barclaycard have issued me a Default Notice last week, all done properly as I can make out, after not sending any payment for the last 3 months. Can I, by making one months payment, render this Default Notice void or do I have to pay the full arrears? Any opinions please guys? Thanks in advance
  16. Hi, I did post on here some time ago about this problem with Robinson way but I thought it had been resolved and now I can't find the thread. I'm just abut to write to Robinson way but I need some advice/reassurance before I do so I would be ever so grateful for some! Recap: Got hassled by Robinson way for years (from 2005) until I sought advise and started writing to them and told them I would only deal with them in writing etc etc in about 2010. Asked them to produce my signed credit agreement (2011) to which they replied saying they couldn't, but did
  17. Hi all, am having a bit of bother with Orange small business customer services, to cut a long story short, my HTC Desire S isn't working as it should, rang Orange, a week ago. They offered a replacement. Problem is, they don't ave any re-conditionned Desire S in stock, apparently they come in as and when available. No one seems to know, could be days, or weeks.. I run a small business, and cant use my phone properly, so after having waited a week, i rang them back. still no news, i then said that i couldn't wait any longer, so they offered the Wildfire S as a replacement, i refused
  18. Original Loan with Universal credit now paragon in 1990 CCJ was just under £5000 but with costs just bumped it over the £5000 and it states on the CCJ that contractual interest if over the £5000. Does the £5000 rule apply as the judgment states i should pay them £4900. I have been paying a small amount for 11 years as per the CCJ and never missed a payment, they have started hassling me again with letters showing a higher balance by about £5000 more than i owe and are requesting for me to ring them, i responded by sending a CCA and an SAR thanks to reading this fo
  19. My original ISP was closing their service so after a lot of questioning too and fro, I agreed to sign up to their broadband offer. However, within a day of placing the order, they already started to cause problems, changed the agreement, failed to return calls, left me with a complete mess to sort out and so I cancelled (or I tried to) within their time limit. They attempted to block my cancellation in time and later went on to say that I had not done so, even though I can clearly demonstrate that my email was sent and received in time. I contacted then Consumer Direct who pointed o

  21. Hi there I'm new to this, would really appreciate advice. I was in a minor accident yesterday, never been in one before. I rang my insurance company and reported it, they said due to circumstances it was likely the other party would accept liability and tried to refer me to a non fault accident specialist to arrange to pick up my car and supply me with an equivalent hire car. I wasn't sure what to do so said no at that point. An hour later I had a call from the other insurance company saying their party admitted liability and they then got really pushy asking me details about the accident an
