    • Is this the same car you bought for £4500 in December 2020 and then spent a further £7k on including a new gearbox?   And now you've spent another £5k on it (including a second replacement gearbox?) with somebody who has had the car for the last 11 months and you've had no use of it in all that time?   (I wondered if perhaps UK169 had carried out the original work and repairs after you had first bought the car last year, but you said on your other thread that you'd spent £7k on repairs, not £5k.  It's a bit confusing... )
    • Jack Wilkinson  His address is one of those virtual offices, ie the actual business doesn’t operate from there and nobody seems to know where his garage is. However it’s 3 The Drive, Jubilee House, Brentwood, Essex, CM13 3FR I have paid him £5000 to date He’s place is about 2.5 hours away from me, but I currently live most of the year in France. I’ll attach the only piece of written evidence that I have from him. This was supposed to have been a report on the condition of the vehicle for my court case against Yew Tree Cars, but is pretty useless to be honest. He telephoned me last week to say that he was ill with Covid, but would be back at work the following Monday and the car would be returned tomorrow (4th December 2021). I sent him a text with information that I required from him before I would accept delivery of the vehicle (£175 each way). Text is added as an image below. This morning I had a phone call from his wife, with no caller id, who said that he was very ill in hospital with Covid, but he should be out on Monday. she said that they were going to take  the car to be MOT’d (it did have a 12 month MOT on it when it was collected last January) but apparently one of the 2 turbos has gone. She said Jack was going to source a replacement (obviously from a breakers yard) and fit it for free. Then it was discovered that the entire engine has to come out to fit it, which is going to cost in the region of £2000! Obviously I have no intention of paying anymore money to this person. The call ended with her telling me that Jack would telephone me next week to discuss it. Under normal circumstances one would imagine that him getting Covid is credible, but with his track record, I just see it as another delaying tactic. The forum that I found this information on is https://www.vwt4forum.co.uk/threads/ecu-solutions-brentwood-essex-any-reviews.1776159/page-4   I’m in the situation of not knowing what work he has actually done. I have no idea whether he is telling me the truth or anything. A thought that crossed my mind, after reading people’s posts on the VW site, is that he uses his customers vehicles to take parts from for other cars and then waits until a similar car comes in to replace them. I just can’t figure out the scam here, but there definitely is one! TEXT SENT ON 26/12/2021 Dear Jack, Further to our telephone conversation yesterday, I request the following from you please: 1. A full breakdown, including receipts, for the payment made to you by bank transfer to your account named 169UK for the amount of £3000 paid on the 14/01/2021. 2. A full breakdown, including receipts, for the payment made to you by bank transfer to your account named 169UK for the amount of £2000 paid on 05/02/2021. 3. Your VAT number and address of your business premises. The car wash centre where customers are requested to deliver/collect their vehicles from is not acceptable. Neither is the ‘dummy’ office that you use at Jubilee House, Brentwood, Essex. This is not your business premises. Under UK law, it is a legal requirement for you to provide this. You advised me yesterday that my vehicle will be returned to me by the end of next week, being 03/12/21. Before accepting receipt of the vehicle, the following is required: The documents requested in points 1-3, to be sent by email to **************@gmail.com  A photograph of the current mileage. A video of the exterior and interior of the vehicle. Evidence that the vehicle is running as it should be. 12 months MOT certificate. Warranty documentation for the replacement gearbox dated from 03/12/2021, again to be sent by email, before receipt of the vehicle will be accepted. Yours sincerely,   Trying to upload the photo of the document  that he sent to me by text (jpeg) but it won’t let me.  
    • And a draft claim form to the courts in my name attached to it    What would you advise i do from here?
    • Johnson just needs to figure out how his pals can make taxpayer money from it for doing next to nowt, .. and some way he wont be clearly shown yet again as a worse than useless incompetent corrupt prat   The second - almost impossible
    • I got a letter today saying the below    Our client liverpool fc and athletic grounds Ltd    We write further to our previous correspondence including but not limited to our letter dated 29th Sept 2021 and the definitions therein    Its already been made very clear that our client requires you to provide a response to our letter.despite this the deadline to provide a signed agreement and comply with the terms therein has once again passed and we have not received a response from you.   Our client is understandably becoming very frustrated with the lack of response from you particularly as it has-been made abundantly clear you are infringing its intellectual property rights by the war of trademark infringement and passing off. If we do not hear from you by 3 Dec 2021 with your written agreement on the forms enclosed (which has been amended further to reflect our clients growing legal costs)and compliance to the terms there withing we will have no option but to advise our client to escalate matters further against you in the form of legal proceedings. Please see the attached draft claim form in this regard.

Guys,

 

Why all the subterfuge?

 

If anyone knows who TIE is, lets name him and get him out of the closet?

 

If he is connected with Swift and exposure might get him in trouble - so what?

 

At least give him/her a chance to confrim or deny?

 

Why all the fannying about?

Morning Sparkie,

 

Re: Eastern Counselling

 

I was charged a fee for this by Swift, but never received any documents, phone calls, e-mails or visits in connection with this and the first I knew was when I sent my SAR to Swift. I was charged for something which never took place!

 

Kind regards - hope you are well,

 

Dougal

 

PS : Just reported Swift and Rajiv Puri to the police for Fraud under the 2006 Act!...watch this space!

Update: 2013 Following our recent (9/7/13) hearing about Bank Charges at the Court of Appeal, and refusal to grant permission to Appeal; an Application has just (23/10/2013) been made for a fresh hearing and the Court Location is yet to be confirmed!

To reiterate what I've said before, I stumbled on this site looking for something else. That issue was resolved a long time ago. I was intrigued by Sparkie's "dedication" to your collective cause. I also was surprised by the amount of misinformation coming from him and how most members of this board believed everything he said. It's now 5-6 months (?) since I first posted and as I said then, not a single "big news", "any day now", "top secret" claim he has made has come to fruition. Despite that, so many people continue to think he is going to be the saviour and bring Swift down. I've never once said Swift are innocent or ethical. What I've said is the majority of Sparkie's rants are simply rants and nothing else. None of you ever call him to the carpet when he says all these things and they never happen and I find that amazing. When one of his posts dont materialize, he humbly says he let everyone down, then inevitably, everyone tells him to hang in there and what an inspiration he is. I'm sorry, I just think that is wrong. Check his posts on this board and about 3 others he posts on and you'll see nothing he claims has ever happened. I do not work for Swift, dont give a rats a** about them and genuinely hope if they have screwed people they get what's coming to them. I'm sure this board has helped many of you and that's a great thing. Take the time and re-read Sparkie's posts and start asking questions why not a single one of his claims have developed.

Haven’t posted for a while, I’m over in N. Ireland on “holiday” but I have a question for everyone.

 

Can everyone check their direct debit mandates and see if this sort code is on the direct debit ………40-21-66.

 

If you recognise that sort code, has anyone got an account number to go with it, it will be a big help if you can let me know …just post “yea or nay”…

 

Had a couple of nice chats with the authorities over here, they wanted to know what I know.

 

Thanks

Nice to see that TIE is back on the thread, have you all noticed that it is only me that he responds to ....he must like me really ....I just would like to remind TIE that it took 3 years to bring Gmac to heel and that was purely about fees and charges...cost them £10 million or so.

 

I would like to ask TIE some questions that may make me change my mind a little.

 

As he has 10 years experience in the Finance industry, would he like to give his professional opinion of the 3 Kestrel Loan Companies operated by "Swift Directors".

1...Why and how do they claim to lend money to the public/consumer....when they do not lend a penny.

2...Why and how can they have loans on their books when they do not lend a penny?

3...How can have these loans ( which they have bought) on their books when they have no OFT licence ...no FSA licence and no ICO licence ....can TIE explain how this can be done .....remember they bought FSA regulated mortgages and CCA regulated and CC unregulated loan agreements.

Bearing in mind none of them securitise loans.

 

4...TIE knows full well that all the Kestrel Companies are there for is to borrow money for Swift Advances plc and Swift 1st Ltd because Swift cannot borrow it on their own if they did they would be bankrupt, their liabilities would be greater than their assets ....by getting the Kestrel companies to borrow the money and " buy loans" they turn liabilities into assets....clever.....but not clever enough......the authorities DO KNOW what is happening ....especially over here ....why do you think I have come to N.Ireland TIE?................or are you one of the misguided who believe the Irish are "thick"? I can tell you they are far from it.

 

5..Why do they get their risk manager to swear on oath in courts of law that Swift Advances plc do not pay commission? ..they pay millions and millions of pounds every year?

Hi Ozzie

 

Good to hear from yet another satisfied Swift customer!!!

Your situation is all too familiar unfortunatlely. Like you I was introduced to Swift by Ocean Finance, and I have written to them thanking them for helping me make the biggest financial mistake of my life, but they dont want to know - its good to know firms like Ocean Finance are in the business of helping people though?

 

All I can offer you is to get the OFT involved - despite the good work some are doing on here, in my opinion it is only these guys who have the teeth to do some damage to Swift - they must have a whole room dedicated to their Swift files by now, so add your contribution to that effort and mail;

[email protected] and [email protected]

 

I am sure they will be interested in your case.

Back from N. Ireland now........... had some good long chats with certain authorities over there, we sorted out some very important things, I was treated like an “Emperor” and “King”….mean anything to anyone??

Folks can take my word…… or………. “Take It Easy’s” but things will happen/start from over there very they are taking every thing we have presented them with seriously ….they see where we are coming from.

“Strickley” speaking though I will have to “ Double” check with my “Colleagues” over there before I give you more updates.

Finally can anyone tell me if they can prove that their loan agreement was set up by a broker,…………. who they have later found that the broker did not have a CCA licence, issued by the OFT?................... Just go to the OFT public register and search for the name of their broker and get back to me, if their broker did not have a licence …..and there is a lot that didn’t.................will be very helpful

Thanks

PS We now know that the sort code 40-21-66 we thought was a sort code is not a sort code ....it is what is called a passport number..........we thought it was something to do with the HSBC Bank as their sort codes begin with 40.

Enquiries made,.. tell us that once money is paid into that passport account, it can go anywhere...........i.e. very very hard to trace where it goes to .....Bank we asked to trace it said they couldnt tell us?????

Hi Sparkie

 

Glad you had a good holiday!!! Something to do with penguins?!

 

I wonder if this "passport" number is why Swift are so keen, when we pay by credit or debit card over the phone, to encourage us to pay via their website or direct debit. I wouldn't trust them with a direct debit mandate anyway.

 

Talk soon I hope!

Had a copy of a letter to my MP from John Fingleton about Swift Advances, Chief Executive of OFT which includes the following: "In considering the fitness of an applicant or licensee the OFT considers any matters which appear to it to be relevant and in particular any evidence tending to show that the applicant has amongst other things engaged in business practices appearing to the OFT to be decietful, opressive or otherwise unfair or improper. The information "Sweetjane" has provided to the OFT will be considered in relation to Swift Advances plc's application. The Act (Consumer Credit Act 1974) also requires an applicant to have all names under which he intends to carry on licensable activities on the consumer credit licence. A licensee who carries on a licensable activity under a name not specified in his licence commits an offence under the Act; however this will not render relevant credit agreements unenforceable".

Does anyone know how Swift Advances plc or their people might be punished if they are deemed to have "commited an offence"?

Hi Guys,

 

Had a look into the issue of the 'sort code' 402166 quoted on Swift Advances DD mandates and it's actually their Direct Debit Originator's Identification Number. In this case it just happens to be six digits so it looks a bit like a sort code but it's a completely different reference number. If you search the term Originator's Identification Number or OIN you will find loads of explanations returned from wikipedia, aptbacs etc which give further information.

 

Swift Advances DD Mandate.pdf

 

Not sure if it's worked but I've tried to attach a Direct Debit Mandate from Swift's website to demonstrate the point. Sort codes and account numbers are generally only found on standing order mandates or given as the details required for internet banking payments.

 

Hope this clarifies things.

Morning all,

 

My thoughts were that 'Swift Advances plc', do not and never have actually existed in that format as a plc!

 

Am I missing something?.... Answers on a postcard....:-)

Did you get a chance to look at the PM I sent you?

 

LL:D

 

Yes I did thanks....not sure is you spelt "promice" right ....our broker was Promise Finance Ltd, who went bust in april 2008...so I have to challenge Swift Advances plc on the secret commission issue ...which I will be doing very soon under the Unfair Relationship ...section 140 of the New Consumer Credit Act............I would post a copy of my draft claim to date .....but I do not think members will have the patience to read it ........it is over 95 paragraphs long....and is pretty severe for Swift Advances plc....even if I lose on 50% of my claim...... I'm on a winner.

 

The section that is a killer for all creditors is section 140B (9)....I have it on a good authority from a barrister who has represented some of the big Banks ...who has said the Banks are not happy with this at all, in fact a little bit frightened of it.

 

You can bring all other statutes and regulations into a claim under this section not just the Consumer legislation.

 

I can send anyone a copy of it by e-mail if they would like to spend quite a time reading it ....there is something for everyone to use in it.

I am in the process of sending them a part 31.16. CPR to further support it
