  1. Last year on 24th August we switched providers and signed a 12 month contract with BT for supply of land line plus broadband. However this morning in my inbox was an email notifying me that there was a price increase of £2.50 and that this would be implemented from 1st April. Can they do this and is it a get out of contract if they impose the extra charge? As below Hello, We wanted to let you know that the price you pay for your broadband and ca

  3. Hi Guys, Please can somone offer any advice to a County Court Claim form received from Northampton County Court. P.O.C stating :- The claimant is the assignee of a debt from HBOS Card ref number XXXX Notice of assignment having been given to the defendant in writing. Despite demands for payment XXXX remains due. The claimant claims XXXX and interest under s.69 County Courts Act 1984 and costs. Not sure if Carbooters still monitor the forums so I don't want to reveal too much info, but originally I batted them away some time ago when they first contacted me in 2008
  4. Hi hope you can help About a year ago I discovered that SWALEC had increased the price of electric and gas on my bill without notifying me of this change. When I discovered this I contacted them and the representative said he was going to refund me the amount i had overpaid and put me back on a lower tariff. This didn't happen. In the meantime i've been dealing with a personal tragedy and have only just found the guts to face them again as I have gone from paying £30.00 per month to £105.00 in the last two years. :mad2: I live alone in a small house that has a very efficient heating sys
  5. I was Googling today and found 2 stories which can be found here http://recombu.com/digital/news/tv-license-fine-rises-to-4000_M13268.html Forget it says about TV licensing in the title read the thread further down the link , the Government is proposing to increase motoring fines in 2015 to a horrible amount "Other financial penalties being increased in the same proposals include those for motoring offenses. Speeding on a motorway will soon attract a maximum fine of £10,000, whilst breaking the speed limit on dual carriageways will attract a fine of £4,000" Any though
  6. Hi all, unsure whether this belongs here or another forum area so please move if needed I noticed something this morning on an item I've had in my Amazon basket for a while. It was priced at £250 for a couple of weeks and the same item was the same price in Argos, John Lewis and even Halfords was similar (Couple of pounds more) What seemed like seconds before todays lightning deal kicked in for that item, the price went up to £268 and the lightning deal kicked in @ 30% off RRP. To me RRP was £250 and from what I can see, the item was increased in price for the deal. If I re
  7. My son got an overdraft on both his Lloyd's TSB accounts. He was getting the overdrafts increased on a weekly or more often basis with no problem. He then went to see about getting a loan to clear off the overdraft to let him start again. At the same time they gave him a credit card. He wasn't paying the loan, or credit card or overdraft. At the same time he had a few payday loans Wonga, Quick Quid etc. we have managed to get almost all sorted out now, only a little on the card and the loan is being kept up to date. I am angry with him but also with the bank. They saw the payday stuff o
  8. Is there a thread on the increase that O2 have imposed from23/1/13. I would like to cancel my contract, as I find this disgraceful that they can just hike the cost of the tariff, what next? I am on a 2 year contract which ends Feb 15.
  9. I received a letter today from Bank of Ireland informing me that although the base rate hasn't changed in almost 4 years, they've decided to increase the interest rate on my mortgage anyway. My mortgage is one that tracks at a fixed percentage above the base rate (they call it the 'differential'). It's this differential they're increasing. They say they're entitled to do this. Are they? I've had this mortgage for about 11 years. If they are allowed, would there be any point trying to argue/barter/threaten to leave?
  10. Plusnet are increasing their charges in the middle of my year long contract which seems very unfair as I signed up for a year at an agreed term so should they not honour the agreed charge for that year?
