    • If you want to save us all a lot of time, you can tell us the whole story in a chronology without too much narrative including who you are dealing with. We really can't say if you have missed a trick until you lay it all out.   In terms of not wanting to bother us, - very noble, but it is less of a bother if you come to us first so that we can help you to get it right first go  
    • I'm gutted - I always wanted to meet him - he most certainly was the ONLY Bond.  By all accounts he was a lovely man.
    • Boris 'the Liar' speech translated   'Some months ago we told you you had to stay at home to protect the NHS, and you understood that our decimation of NHS funding meant that all other NHS work had to stop, and its resourses were severely limited. Now I'm sure some foolish people thought that was to allow time for the underfunding and the under staffing of the NHS to be reversed. But clearly, as the majority of you did as requested, and suffered and died quietly at home and in homes to a level we could barely believe, clearly it meant that the money we might have been forced to spend on the NHS could be retargetted to our mates like serco - so of course we did.   Now 6 months on, with the NHS staff exhausted and at breaking point,  our pals simply cant be expected to actually deliver on the ridiculous claims, we are simply trying the same scam again on you idiots to free up even more debt generated money to route to our pals tax haven bank accounts which your children, childrens children unto the 7th generation can pay back.   So, with PPE money allocated to companies we chose who clearly needed the money, and debt at record levels I'm sure you will all realise that again everyone else must not mingle, and must stay at home wherever possible, so the children can go and mingle in schools in full sized classes and allow the virus to spread there and get back to you smart arse plebs locked in at home who have managed to avoid it so far. and I'm sure you will all understand its absolutely crucial that neither you or your family -  especially children - should waste essential resources and apply for tests until you are showing clear covid symptoms and we know you have it.   Thank you suckers.

    • Don't worry about it.  It's just that it makes it easier for people to understand and to try to give you advice if you keep everything related to one topic in a single thread, so everything is in one place and not scattered around.  But if you have a new or unrelated topic, it needs it's own new thread, otherwise people get confused and can't separate one topic from another.   Does your question about the courier need a separate thread, or is it part of the unpaid loan to your relative issue?   Whoops!!!  Sorry - I see there is a new thread.  Teach me to read before I post!

    • 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!

Hi,

Can someone help me?

I parked in a church car park which was signed to say 'no parking without a permit'. I was popping to post something in the church on a bank holiday monday and there were no other cars in this car park. My parnter was driving my car not me, but i was in the passanger seat. I was gone about 3 mins and returned to a fine on my car. I looked everywhere for the parkng attendant, but they must have vanished within seconds!

The fine is for £118 which im not paying. Can they legally do this? Especially on a bank holiday when i thought all parking restrictions are not applied? Im not paying this firstly cause it was a bank holiday, secondly because of the sneaky way they were watching me, thirdly because £118 is obsene! And forthly because i was actually visiting the church?

Can you please help to advise me?

thanks alot

OK facts first

 

Yes they can legally attach a worthless piece of paper (hereafter called invoice because it is NOT a fine) to your car.

 

Parking restrictions matter not about Bank Holidays if it's private land.

 

Whilst you may have been visiting the church the sign did say that you need a valid permit to park there, if you didn't have a valid permit on display then you didn't comply with the land owners conditions regarding parking on land they own.

 

Just because the attendant was sneaky does not give you grounds to refuse paying

 

NOW THE GOOD NEWS

 

£118 is punitive and would not be held up in any court of law, they can only sue you for any fiscal loss, so if there was no charge to park there they have lost nothing and can sue you for nothing (unless you damaged something).

 

This is NOT a fine, they cannot fine you, it's an invoice which you don't have to pay (but you will help the environment if you recycle the paper together will all the ever more threatening (but totally useless) letters they will no doubt send you.

 

Read the stickies and decide how you want to proceed, either ignore everything or just fire off the standard reply once they have got your details from the DVLA (wait for that because it costs them £2.50 to get them).

 

FINALLY

 

Next time you are saying your prayers slip in the name of the Company who issued this ticket in the hope that the Big Man will be annoyed that they dared ticket you whilst you were doing something on his behalf.

most assuredly do not contact them. most assuredly wait for them to have spent 2.50 with the DVLA and have sent you a letter. we can then find out if the church knows anything about this at all.

"let us forgive our tresspasses as we forgive those who tresspass against us"

 

Yes, ignoring is the most efficient way, but it be fun to incorporate the above response "on behalf of the driver at the time" in a "go forth and multiply" response to the PPC

We're getting our torts in a twist here BB. This is for an invoice breach of parking contract not damages for trespass. :D

Consider writing to the church and expressing your disgust and pointing out the lack of legalty about such fines.

 

It always amazes me how so called ethical organisations can employ people to 'fine' who uses their land. Churches and the Co-op are terrible for this.

My housemates and I have had dealings with AS Securi-T. They patrol our residential premises in Southampton and we have knowingly parked against the parking conditions regularly (we disagree with the policy). In total we have some 55 tickets between us (= ~ £6000).

 

They send a letter saying we owe them money pay in 14 days, after that they send one from their debt collector (which is infact them), then repeat several times over 9-12 months. They then give up - job done.

 

Don't reply to them at all. I think it's a small company with only a few people in it (2-3).
