  1. Desperate for some advice pleaseeee... I'm at my wits ends. I am in my second dmp since 2013 and was previously in one for 9 years. I requested a SAR to freeman jones, however cannot see whether they have bought the debt from creditors. And cannot see how much of the few hundred I pay a month actually pays for debt to the creditor... I finally have gained the courage to stand up for my rights. And My desperate questions are I know of someone who wrote to all her creditors and asked for the cca, most not being able to provide and they couldn't pursue the debt. 1: shouldn't the IVA company have copies of all credit agreements signed by me before they sacred on their behalf 2: shouldn't the IVA company provide me with the copies? 3: shouldn't they state in the SAR how much is being paid to the creditor? 4: can I leave the Iva and write to the creditors asking for the original agreements? 5: if they cannot provide a copy of the ca signed by me, am I able to claim monies back I have paid to the dumps over the last 15 years? Anyone who can help, I would be so so grateful. Leelee84
  2. The following important news item appears on the Action Fraud website today: http://actionfraud.police.uk/news/[problem]mer-derek-jones-calling-victims-claiming-they-have-to-pay-a-debt-nov14 Action Fraud has received reports of a fraudster cold calling members of the public claiming they must pay a debt or face having a bailiff sent round. The caller is purporting to be from a legitimate company called Jacobs, which is a traditional enforcement and debt recovery company based in Birkenhead. The fraudster calling himself “Derek Jones” claims that victims owe a debt and as a result are expected to appear in court in the next two days. The [problem]mer with a Scottish accent is also threatening to send the bailiffs round if the debt is not paid. Interestingly Jacobs do have an employee called Derek Jones – but the company has confirmed that he is an office worker and not Scottish like the fraudster calling victims.

Hello This is just a little warning for anyone searching for information on the following three companies.harrington jones limited, cobley johnson partners ( cjp) and consumer claims ( consumer-claims dot com) They are all sening letters to people fishing for work, they are not including their fees and cleaverly miss out vital pieces of paper work where these fees are contained Do not sign any letters of authority from any of these companies hopefully people searching will see this and be warned.
  4. Hello, I was wondering whether you could give me some advice. My husband bought an engagement ring for me at Ernest Jones 3.5 years ago. Two weeks ago the branches of the ring that were holding the diamond disconnected and the diamond fell out. I only noticed it after it happened and so I lost the stone. Ernest Jones sent the ring off to get it looked at and have now told me over the phone that it is due to damage and that there was no fault with the ring. I am quite surprised, although I wore the ring everyday, I took good care of it and didn't do anything harsh to it. It wasn't knocked or anything like that. The ring originally cost £499 and they are now asking for £530 to repair it. Is there anything I can do? I think there must have been a fault with the ring, whether the design was flawed or the material faulty I don't know, but you expect to be able to wear an engagement ring everyday without the goldbranches detaching themselves and the stone falling out, don't you? If you could give me some advice that would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi all, my wife's engagement has broken, it's the 2nd time the exact same problem has occurred one of the claws holding the stone has broken and the stone has fallen out. the 1st time this happened it was covered by the extended warranty & the ring was replaced as it couldn't be fixed. unfortunately it is now out of warranty. Im wondering what is the best way to try and get the ring repaired / replaced, would i be covered by the sale of good act? as its the exact same problem that happened to the last one? Just trying to get prepared before i go into the jewelers. Many Thanks in advance
  6. Hi Guys I have recieved this letter from TBI now. Any advice on how I should proceed please? Does David D Jones even exist as I could not even find a website? Cheers
  7. Hi, I am new here but I am stuck as to what I can do about my engagement ring. My fiancee purchased the ring from a local Ernest Jones branch in November 2012, he gave the ring to me a few days within the 30 Day refunds/exchange policy. I loved the ring and there was nothing apparent wrong with it so I kept it. However, a month later I noticed that the solitaire diamond was moving inside the setting - almost rattling. This was a very expensive ring and I was terrified that the diamond would fall out, so we took it straight back for a repair. One of the prongs (it is a 4-prong setting) had apparently weakened, so it was fixed and returned to us. I thought nothing more of it until a few days later when I noticed the diamond was still moving. We took it back again, where the shop assistant tried to tell me that it was "supposed to move" because it wasn't glued in! I looked it up on the web and found out that any movement of a stone indicates a weak, unreliable setting, which can lead to the diamond falling out. I also discovered the terrible reputation that EJ has with other couples who have purchased faulty (very expensive) jewellery from them. However I took the ring back to be fixed a second time with the warning that if it happened again, I would be taking further action. We have just taken the ring back for the 3rd time for the exact same problem, insisting on a refund rather than another repair. The sales assistant admitted that she thought the ring itself was faulty, but said she could only offer us an exchange for another ring. Due to reading about a great many other customers having the same problem, along with my own experience, I felt that I did not want to be tied in financially to the company for the next 2 years (the ring was purchased on finance). The sales assistants told us that they would get back to us about the refund situation within the next few days. Today we received a call from Ernest Jones telling us that they were going to have to assess the ring for customer damage, since the palladium band is badly warped/deformed which to them indicates that "excessive force has been used on the ring". Not only is this ridiculous as I am extremely careful with my ring and would be hard pressed to manage to warp it, but I have only owned it for 5 months, in which time i have had to have it repaired twice. These engagement rings are supposed to last a lifetime; if it is possible for me to badly damage the ring from gentle everyday use, then the ring does not fit its purpose and is not worth the inordinate amount of money it cost. Besides, the warping of the band was most likely caused by the 2 previous repairs that had to be done on it. I don't know what to do now; if they send the ring off for assessment, I have the feeling that they could do anything to the ring to try and prove that it was my own fault. I do not want to be stuck with a faulty unreliable ring which my fiancee will have to pay off for 2 years and I do not want an exchange of a different EJ ring which could have the exact same problem. Has anyone else had any success with dealing with a problem like this? Should I contact Trading Standards or Citizens Advice before the ring is sent away or should I allow them to assess the ring and go from there?
  8. Financial Conduct Authority chairman John Griffith-Jones is facing calls to resign after he failed to flag up huge losses at HBOS in his role as chairman of accountancy firm KPMG. KPMG audited HBOS before its collapse and gave the bank a clean bill of health. Last week, the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards published a damning report about HBOS’s management. It revealed the bank was shouldering £47bn of losses when it was audited by KPMG. According to the Daily Mail, Labour MP and Treasury select committee member John Mann has called for Griffith-Jones to quit. He says: “He should absolutely resign. These grossly failed businessmen should not be in any senior positions in any organisation. Griffith-Jones played along with this Alice in Wonderland economics and the taxpayers are now footing the bill.” Tory MP and TSC member Brooks Newmark has written to committee chairman Andrew Tyrie calling for Griffith-Jones to resign. The FCA, which will publish a report on the bank’s collapse, says Griffith-Jones will not be involved. A spokesman says: “John Griffith-Jones was subject to a rigorous appointment process by HM Treasury, and had an appointment hearing with the Treasury select committee.” KPMG may be investigated by the Financial Reporting Council over its audit of HBOS. The FRC says it will review the commission’s report and the FCA’s conclusions “to see whether there is a case for an investigation under our powers”.
