    • When it comes to animals my heart is just shallow. Sorry to hear that.
    • go back and read what andyorch said in my above links about a DEED of assignment NOT being a Notice Of Assignment. its a general document for a portfolio of MANY debts they bought on a spreadsheet, NOT specifically relating to YOUR Agreement. but your was like all others, a single line in a spreadsheet.    the sheriff has specifically asked for the NOA and the Default Notice ...neither of which the fleecers have provided, merly a load of ole twaddle like trump does to divert attention away from those NOT being provided.   forget the stuff about LOP 1925 etc that a NOE is NOT applicable in scotland , the sheriff has asked for it..end of!!   bedtime reading particularly regarding default notice sec 87 https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?484300-Cabot-nolans-SPC-Claim-Old-Next-CAT-Debt(2-Viewing)-nbsp&p=5119630#post5119630   read from about post 70.   as for the written submission. i'll find an example later.   dx      
    • Plevin is not a calculation. its a refund of commission they got as they had a backhander of greater than 50% of the PPI sum paid for selling it on behalf of the insurance company that underwrote the PPI policy.   you are after reclaiming the PPI itself. and that is what all our PPI stuff is geared too.   have you still a copy of what you originally sent though as you don't even KNOW what plevin was , how could you have ever have asked for it.!!   pers i'd write back. (you seriously need to stop talking on the phone!!) stating quite clearly that you REJECT totally their refund under the Plevin Rules. my Claim was to reclaim the PPI a paid, not for a refund of your hidden commission!!   i give your 14 days to refund inline with the enclosed spreadsheet , else i will raise a complaint without further notice to the FOS.   please reply in Writing Only.

    • 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 agree.

This thread has been a focus for many.

Personally I think those who have been contributing from the start and remained supportive,deserve to be considered better than this.

I am not party to the situation or what has developed,but those who are in a position to give an update,should have been mindful of the very ethos and reasons for CAGS existence-just an update even without giving anything away would not have gone amiss.

This has been a show of extreme disappointment for many and shows some replication of the same concerns raised elsewhere on the site.

Too much secret squirrel stuff goes on at CAG these days :( :( :( :( :(

 

Its certainly not something we are happy to agree with nor would encourage.

I invite those who are a party to recent developements or in a position to give an update to contact me or the site team.

Just a reflection of society, Im afraid. People take what they want and dont necessarily feel obliged to put something back

 

CAG long ago ceased to be a penalty charges advice site. The site can never be a complete legal aid service. When we were doing batlle with the Banks on a daily basis, we shared and pooled intelligence for the benefit of others.

 

Thare was a clear common aim that united all of us.

Suppose its one way of looking at it.

 

But to be serious,granted the issues now are very different,but in this instance here-its been interesting for many who have also forgot the penalty charges to engage in support and advice.

accurate reports of what happened in any given situation and the reasons given help us to refine the advice given. often most of the cases we advise on won't have real precedent and won't be reported and so first accounts really help.

 

Anyone know what court this was in and the date?

It was stupid thing to do to start with, so doubly stupid to make a cause celebre of it, as if there were some sort of right to be stupid.

 

I am not so surprised if a judge would rather have none of it.

Criminal damage.

 

:boink:

 

P.S.

 

Do you intend to send a message to the effect that it's a sensible thing to do, to break out of a car park if you're stuck, or is it correct to defer to the authority of the management?

 

That is the sort of question that a judge has to sleep with, so to speak.

Of course you are free to express your opinion,but its not really helpful to anyone to be making comments like this.

If you have followed the thread from the beginning,you will know that there has been injustices.

The way that things have been handled,also raises some extremely searching questions.

I have read the entirety of this thread, which is precisely why I am not at all so surprised by the outcome.

 

If you are, then it's your own advice you need to question.

Im really shocked by the turn this thread has taken with the last lot of postings.

 

This is a matter that has gone on for a long time, it has been complex at the best of times and there have been numerous delays along the way when no news has been released by those who have been involved.

 

This matter was, as far as we know, last in court only 4 weeks ago and there have been a couple of comments from those involved to say that the matter was concluded and that judgement was expected to be revealed the following week. However, knowing how this case has been shaped over the time it has been running it would not surprise me if there hasn't been a delay.

 

While it would be nice to be kept up to date with the current situation is it really fair to post some of the things that have been recently because the thread hasn't been updated? I just hope those who have kept things updated aren't scared off from porting the eventual outcome - if they can based on whatever the outcome of the case is.

But the barrier was already damaged.

the barrier was a hydraulic barrier not an electric one and so the damages claimed from Fred could not possibly have been done by Fred.

 

How hard were these two points for anyone to understand be they yourself or a Judge? Most of us picked up pretty quickly that something was rotten with the whole case, the way the claimant behaved simply vindicated our initial concerns.

 

One has to hope that the learned Judge was able to take on board a few simple facts such as:

The barrier was already damaged.

The damages claimed can not be done to the type of barrier in place not by Fred not by anyone because that make of barrier simply does not utilise the parts claimed damaged.

The claimant repeatedly provided false information under a statement of truth.

The police did not feel any criminal act had been committed.

etc. etc. etc.

 

Suggest you re-read the thread in its entirety.

As of 03/03/12 please do not under any circumstances wait for my further input or guidance on any current thread or defence of a court claim I might have been involved in on or through Cag.

this is perplexity your talking about

 

he doesnt read threads

 

likes to post useless and pointless advice

 

tends to pick fights with other members

 

likes to copy and paste large amounts of text

 

and tends to not read things before venturing an optinion

Were I to go to court to lodge a claim my preference would be to win.

 

Were "methinks" to undertake to cover the cost of a lost case the opinion of "methinks" would count for that much more but that is not going to happen, is it?

 

I thought not.

 

Words are cheap.

 

:roll:

 

P.S.

 

How hard were these two points for anyone to understand be they yourself or a Judge?

 

The judge has the benefit of hearing the other side of story. That is how the system of justice works in the UK, as an adversarial contest.

 

When exactly was such an opportunity afforded, during the course of this thread?

 

I must have missed that.

 

:roll:

 

P.P.S.

 

The police did not feel any criminal act had been committed.

etc. etc. etc.

 

No kidding?

 

A few weeks later he was arrested and charged with criminal damage, for which he accepted a caution.

Perplexity, if you had bothered to read the thread you would have seen that the police involvement was not as it initially seemed.

 

Then again, since your only motivation appears to be to disrupt, rather than make a meaningful contribution, an understanding of the issues involved is hardly likely to be a priority for you. Any further behaviour like this is likely to result in moderation.
