    • 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!

No citizen we did not smallest we could find was for size tiny baby and even that was too big he really is so dainty but we did manage to find some nappies small enough.

 

He need to grow to 4lb before the first size will fit him.

 

We are told though by the nursing team he is doing well and at the rate he is taking milk though the tube it will not be lomg before he reaches 4lb

 

It is times like this you realize the good work the NHS does and if he was born in an underdeveloped country he would not survive.

 

I was truly bold over today at the lengths the NHS go to and the technology they have at there disposal.

Did you ever get the apology from Optima as mentioned by the judge?
That is a BIG NO

 

Furthermore I was told by the pupil barrister that the account was not closed as i asked how do i go about making payment.

 

I tried to log in to MBNA last week to make the first payment and i could not login as the account was indeed closed.

 

On a statement i have it says charged off also says that on the comms log so if this is the case just where is that money going.

Seriously. I would take some advice on commencing proceedings for contempt of court against both MBNA and Optima.

 

I could not agree more, if not for the benefit of myself certainly for the benefit of the folk on here going though similar issues.

Also i offered MBNA £50 a mth before legal proceeding commenced i have never denied the debt but it was what i consider a non-priority debt so yes i did ok as my primary concern was avoiding a CCJ at all costs due to my elderly disabled mum in law living here this i did and they ended up with less each mth.

 

Bit now im thinking ive got them over my head for the next 26 yrs which is not a good prospect and now want them out of my life for good.

 

I believe with the help you have given already this can now be achived if i play my cards right.

 

Have you seen the two default notices the one they produced in court i now believe this was altered by optima.

You are dead right regarding the DPA being breached.

 

It beggars belief that theyd actually treat their own peoples personal data in such a way. No wonder they deliver such poor service. Wonder how many more £14k per annum slaves they have.

 

Wonder whether Giles knows what they did and whether they did this to anybody else. They will have a mutiny on their hands before long lol.

 

Re the Capita thing. To be fair that info is in the public domain although it is well hidden. It does help though if you happen to have a few contacts who used to work at Optima and one very good friend who actually still works in the very department who dealt with your defence who is royally ****ed off with things there and the way they treat people. I am sure that when she finds out about what they did to poor old Giles she will have a good old laugh.

 

The thing is though that Capita are one of the biggest UK PLCs and have invested millions in Optima. This sort of thing will not go down well in the corridors of power especially if the media were to get hold of the story.

One other point which i think is relevant, when we where at court on the 15th june i was in the waiying room with many other people all waiting to be called in to various court rooms.

 

The pupil barrister approached me to do a deal would you say this was mediation and if so am i right in thinking this should of been done in a private room so it was for her and my ears only.

 

Because this was not the case it was done in the waiting room for all to hear this caused me embarrassment surely this is not on.

I take my hat off to you. You have a mine of information here to show how Optima and MBNA appear to have broken the rules of the CPR constantly and broken numerous terms of the solicitors code of conduct and the Data Protection Act.

 

On the DPA breach. This opens up yet another regulatory can of pythons. I think you need to be reporting them to the Information Commissioner - you are going to be busy. Optima are a Data Controller and sent personal data relating to their own staff members salary review to you. Their clients trust them to have procedures in place to protect their sensitive information but if they cant even guarantee the protection of their own employees very personal data how can anybody be sure that their systems are watertight? How can you be sure that Joe Bloggs living in the Outer Hebridees has not received personal correspondence intended for you? If you received Giles Whislecrafts salary review in the post there is plainly something not quite right in the provisions and procedures they have to guarantee the security of everybodies personal data.

They have no excuses. Hopefully Mr Whistlecraft will be finding out about Optimas breach of his Data Protection in the next couple of days.

Sorry about this m8. Just re-read some of this thread and noticed that Dianne Powell sent another statement to you in February here http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/legal-issues/151709-help-23.html#post2003095

 

This just gets better and proves beyond doubt that they have not got a clue about proper procedure etc. Dianne Powell seems to have had another serious attack of amnesia in spelling her name as this statement is again in the name of Diane Powell.

 

As the statements bear two different names it is reasonable to assume that Dianne and Diane are two different people and therefore Dianne Powell has absolutely no right or reason or capacity to sign a statement of truth on behalf of Diane Powell. she seems to have done this consistently on three statements in your case.

 

If my name is Paul and somebody adds a letter to it to make it Paula for example and I then make a statement introducing myself as being "Paula Meldrum" and sign it as Paul people have every right to raise questions as to the identity and veracity of the witness and if necessary to get me into court and put me in the witness box and give evidence under oath as to firstly whether or not it is my signature on the document (Paul) and secondly why I appear to have taken it upon myself to sign a document bearing a statement of truth in the name of somebody else entirely (Paula). I would also expect to have my evidence trashed and be prosecuted for contempt of court and very possibly perjury if I had blindly stated on oath that I was the author of the statement.

 

As solicitors acting for the party giving the statement Optima should also be subjected to the same penalties as MBNAs witness as they should have spotted the discrepancy and allowed the situation to arise in the first place. As solicitors they should in fact have the book thrown at them. I dont think that your case PF is an isolated incident either.

 

It would be funny if it wasnt so blatant and so serious.

 

Can I also point out that the statements should be numbered in sequence. Powells first statement should have been labelled in the top right corner as being her first statement. The statements of 31st March should have been clearly numbered and designated as statements 2 and 3.

 

It really does look like they have not got a clue at what they are supposed to be doing. This is supposed to be a top class law firm with obligations to their clients and the public and bound by this

 

Solicitors Regulation Authority - Code of Conduct: contents

 

Have a look at Rule 1 and the guidance notes to it and ask yourself as to whether they have behaved anywhere near to the standards expected.

 

Top class law firm indeed!

Wow you certainly know your stuff, This i believe is such a case that does not warrant using email to make complaints so i will spend this evening and tomorrow getting my paperwork in order and composing letters ready to post SD on monday.

 

I will also search the web for a solicitor in my area.

 

Can you tell me what area of law does the solicitor need to specialize in ?
