    • as i said unsure of what this 15% is about.   the FOS/FCA clearly describe how refund calcs show have been made the their relevant sites.   p'haps at this juncture it might be better to scan up to ONE multipage PDF their refund letters  another set of eyes is always belter.   please read our upload guide carefully      
    • I wouldn't bother with emailing Virgin's CEO.   In April I started a complaint about my BB connection which they repaired quickly but charged me to repair.   I was mostly ignored or promised resolution that never happened. So I complained by email to the CEO, twice, demanding written responses. On each occasion, a lowly call centre worker called and it was obvious they knew or cared little about my actual case.   Finally I got a written reply confirming the charge was dropped but not a penny offered in compo despite the issue taking months to resolve.   Virgin don't take CEO complaints seriously.
    • Dear All,   BN, BF, HB, - Thank you for your comments.    Yes sorry, i wanted to save some time by doing that as I wanted to carry out the posting ASAP OK, I have redacted the statement and it is attached here in the PDF doc.   Its our 2nd draft and I will fine tune it tonight / tomorow.   Thank you for putting me right.    Warm regards BF   Counterclaim-1.pdf
    • So according to this calculator my refund should be £4562.96 at the 8%.   This is in line with some of the management firms calculator on-line.   I have checked their letter again and they have paid from 1 Jan 1989 - 1 Jan 1994 only. They have refunded all the insurance premiums totalling £469.50 and the interest paid on the premiums to date of £257.90.  Additional interest of £1,436.36 after tax on top of refund as compensation.  Statutory rate of 8% from 1 Apr 1993 and at 15% before that.  They have not provided a breakdown of payments from 15% - 8%.  Only below:   £  469.50 - Refund of PPI premiums paid £  257.90 - Refund of interest charge on the premiums paid £1,795.44 - Statutory compensation -£      0.00 - Less any previous successful claim -£      0.00 - Less any previous refunds made directly as result of this policy -£       0.00 - Less any statutory compensation already paid -£   359.08 - Deduction from any statutory compensation interest for income tax at 20% _________ £2,163.76 - Total refund due   This will be the second time I am returning their calculations.  They made a decision last year and used a wrong date as they could not read the date and made up a date then it went to the back of the queue to be recalculated.  I had already queried the refund amount with them and they have moved the date again from the 22 Jan to 1 Jan!   Are they using a different calculator/principal why the figures are so far apart?  How am I going to show them this calculation without it going to FOS and sitting there for years to be assessed?   Can I also ask how to do the 15% calculation?  Thanks so much.  
    • Hi Burma.   You've been here for a while and I have to say I'm a bit disappointed that you're PMing this to various people off the main thread.   Advice by PM isn't what we advise here and I hope that you can post up your anonymised documents very soon.   HB

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

I am new to this site.

My husband has received two pcn's one from a company called CP Plus ltd and one from uk parking control which have the same address for a start. One was asking for £50 and then if not paid within 28 days £80 plus £40 admin charge the other £75 and then if not paid £95 plus £40 admin charge.

 

:lol::lol::lol:

 

I was going to pay them, but by chance I decided to check things out on the internet and I found this site. I have written to both companies using template found on this site confirming that he is the registered keeper of the vehicle and that they need to take this matter up with the driver.

 

That's good you have made your position clear.

 

Both pcn have been issued via anpr system.

Over the weekend he has received two letters back one from uk parking control requesting details of the driver but it states that the pcn will remain open in his name and be processed accordingly.

 

You are of course under no obligation whatsoever to provide any information about who may have been driving, even if you knew.

 

The other from cp plus ltd states it is a final reminder to pay £80 within the next 7 days or this notice could result in this debt being registered in the county court or warrant being issued to baliffs.

 

:lol::lol::lol:

 

Firstly, I was going to write back to uk parking control stating that we have no record of who was driving the car and ask them to produce evidence

 

Don't be sucked into this [problem], you have set out your position, all you will accomplish is a lot more letters with them thinking you may waiver and pay. You are not dealing with a legal authority and don't have to answer any question.

 

but not sure how to reply to cp plus ?

 

Easy, just ignore them.

 

thanks

regards

Hi

Like others I to am new to this site having been issued with a PCN by G24 Ltd for a parking offence in Homebase 354, High Road, Harrow. They have photographed a vehicle driving in and then leaving and state that it was parked there for to long, they claim and want £95 or £75 if paid within 14days. They have not provided a number of other images where the car entered and left the area.

I have read a vast number of threads today and I am just after the basic advice Do I ignore it or send your template letter to then.

They have made what appears to be the normal threats of if I do not pay it they will pass it to a recovery agency

Anyone know roughly how long after the PPCs stop sending you stuff you can consider yourself in the clear? My last of two (ignored) letters from Excel was the beginning of June and I've heard nothing since - if that's all the fight they've got then I'm almost disappointed

Made a bit of a boo boo with previous posting in answer to your question tranceaddict84 last I heard from Excel was end of May nothing since.... :) shame really looking forward to going to court, bought a new suit looked quite dapper in it although I say it myself, even practised in front of the mirror , when asked how do I plead I would say "not guilty my lord" or though I rather suspect I have got the wrong sort of court, but humour me anyway.:D

Hi,

 

I have fought a parking ticket claim using Bernie the Bolt's template letters. However, they do not seem to be getting the message that I am not going to pay.

 

I received a letter from a debt recovery service quoting I had 10 days to pay. I replied with the cease and desist letter quoting Protection from Harrassment Act. Today I have received another letter quoting 7 days to pay.

 

Any ideas what I should do next?

An update from my post of 24th August. I have heard nothing back from one company re the parking ticket.

 

The other from CP Plus states Legal Action Pending and is requiring me to pay £120.00 within the next 7 days ( which I have not paid) It states if not paid this matter will be referred to their solicitors and they reserve the right to take legal action to enforce this contract and register this debt against me in County Court and have a warrant issued by the Bailiffs.

I'm still playing the say nowt game, have had the two letters from some phoney Debt Collection Agency Newlyn and now they have refered the matter back to the parking company for them to consider further action. Its all pretty much panning out as Lamma says i expect to get some letteres now from there "solicitors" with the same empty threats. I find it quite funny that the threats they make just don't appear because as it says they have no legal teeth at all.

 

We will see I am quite content to play the waiting game with these cowboys.

Great information on this site. Keep up the good work

A couple of months back i got two parking tickets from a particular PPC both were different times/locations within the space of a month. I’ve been ignoring all letters from them but keeping them filed away in a drawer

I’m due to move house next week so won’t be living at the address they have on record any longer.

Obviously I won’t be contacting them to inform them of my change of address. How would I then know if they then decided to take me to court further down the line?

Should I set up a mail forward from my old address to my new one or not bother?

Thanks

HELP!!! i'm in a bit of a pickle.

i parked in a disabled bay at a well known supermarket. i dont normally do this, but i had my grandson with me, and all the mother and baby spaces were taken (by work vans who had NO children... and old people who didn't want to walk that little bit further, also with no children.)

when i returned from my shopping, i was infuriated to find a fixed penalty notice attatched to my car. i had an arguement with the security guard about why it was issued, when there are NO SIGNS up saying FINES WILL BE ISSUED.

yes i was in the wrong, but surely they cannot just fine you without warning signs stating its actually a fineable offence, especially with it not being issued by the council.

 

my husband was going to pay this fine, but upon opening it, my daughter has noticed it hasn't even been filled in.

all there is, is a ref code on the front of the ticket before you open it, and the reg and date.

when you open the ticket, and take out the slip inside which has spaces that say

 

 

vehicle reg. date. time.

vehicle make

location

 

reson for issue

 

operative id

 

IT IS ALL LEFT BLANK.

there is NO writing on it whatsoever.

 

as a mess up on their side, whoever issued the ticket, DID fill it in, but the ticket inside was the WRONG way round, so all markings have gone onto the back where it has payment details, and late payments, queries etc.

as it looks like pencil anyway on the back, you cannot even read the reasons they have put.

surely this is not a legal ticket any more as they have issued me with a blank one in effect.

 

please someone advise me on what to do. i am living in hope that i do not have to pay this company any more money considering they make billions as it is.
