  1. Good afternoon, In a nut shell. Opened a BC CC in Mar 2003. Missed a few payments which meant that i incurred Over Credit limit charges. Over the course of the next 14 years, it escalated. Despite missing payments and over credit limit charges, BC doubled my credit limit on 3 occasions, June 2009, March 2011 and March 2014. Leading to more financial trouble for myself which was impossible to get away from at the time. Finally got back on track in 2018 and managed to clear the balance, but still incurring interest and some charges. Prior to each limit increase, my
  2. British Gas is raising dual fuel bills by 5.5% hitting an estimated 4.1 million customers with a £60 a year hike. The energy giant blamed the move on rising wholesale prices and policy costs. The price of the British Gas standard variable tariff will climb by £60 to £1,161, an average 5.5% rise for a typical dual fuel customer. Mark Hodges, chief executive, Centrica Consumer, said: “We fully understand that any price increase adds extra pressure on customers’ household bills. “This increase we are announcing today is reflective of the costs we are seeing which are beyond ou

  5. I have mentioned before on the forum of the dangers that debtors face when they visit popular 'social media' sites and apply to join 'closed groups' that claim to offer advice to anyone who has received a letter or a visit from a bailiff. These sites profess to help debtors. Don't be fooled. In the case of this particular thread, the social media site page in question has one aim only and that is to ensure that payment is never made to a bailiff. That is their overriding aim. Debtors joining these 'closed groups' wrongly believe that what they post remains a secret. It does not. A
  6. UK population up by 500k in the last year. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-33266792 By 2025 UK population is likely to hit 70 million. What happened to the Tories tens of thousands target ?
  7. Hi, first of, just to let you know what I have: Assured Shorthold Tenancy (6 month fixed) which started 16 Nov 2011, it's now a monthly periodic. The letting agents, only having just ventured into private letting (monthly) for the first time ever, issued me with an AST which is a bit of a frankenstein AST. By this I mean: When dates and "months" are mentioned, they used the lunar (not 28 day calendar) as reference. Tenancy, as quoted "The tenancy begging -3 Oct 2011 and is for a fixed term of 6 months and ends on Mid-day on 03 April 2012 subject to terms in this a

  9. Tens of thousands of elderly customers face a rise in their energy bills, after one of the UK's biggest suppliers withdrew a tariff for the over 60s. E.on has announced that it will scrap its StayWarm scheme, which offered fixed-price bills. The firm blamed new rules which limit the number of tariffs that energy companies can offer. The changes are part of the government's plans to cut bills, and have been backed by the Prime Minister. They are being implemented by the regulator, Ofgem, and will limit the total number of tariffs to fou
  10. When I signed up with O2, about 18 months ago now, I was told in no uncertain terms by the sales assistants, that the cost will remain the same throughout the term of the contract. This was the strong point in their sales patter - the reliability of this charge being the same constantly to help you budget for the duration of your contract. I was (foolishly) persuaded. May I ask whether this constitutes a breach of contract if they now decide to increasse the charges in spite of having made verbal promises via the sales staff to keep to the same price every month for the duration? If
  11. Although Eon have lowered p/kwh ,unit rates,they have scrapped the Annual Threshold of 2680 kwh in which customers saw unit rates once this was achieved fall from 8.436p/kwh to 3.67p/kwh inc vat. Under the revised E.on EnergyPlan with prepayment the old 8.436p/kwh is replaced with a sole unit rate of 4.256p/kwh inc vat. However,there is now a daily standing charge of 27.395p per day !

  14. Hi, I received an email from Three last night telling me that they are increasing my monthly price by 3.6% in accordance with inflation. I wasn't happy with Three at the best of times however, they said in the email that as this price increase goes hand in hand with inflation then no one can cancel their contract as it says in their terms and conditions. When I took the contract out, I was of the understanding that it was £30 a month however, it turns out that that's excluding VAT so I actually pay £35 but that was not ever mentioned to me nor does it make that clear when purchasing the p
