    • I have read through some of the Hermes threads
    • Should I send it to any Lloyds address or there's specific one?  Thanks again.  It means a lot knowing there's someone who is willing to help.  I appreciate it
    • I agree, guys.   Here's an article about NHS test and trace rolling out saliva tests to local public health departments. It doesn't seem to have been thought through and I didn't notice anything in the article about some of the £12bn being passed on to local authorities to help them run this.   https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/oct/28/10-of-englands-population-could-be-tested-for-covid-19-every-week   'Some local public health directors have dismissed the idea already. One said he would refuse to take part because the tests were “short on scientific backing” and his stretched staff lacked the capacity to deliver at such scale. Another said the lack of any proposed support to track people’s close contacts if they tested positive rendered it pointless.'
    • The legal letter was sent online and it is above  I will repost below Hermes Capitol House 1 Capitol Close Moriey LEEDS LS270WH Particulars 0f Claim xxxxxxx 27/10/2020 I sent a £200 extremely well packaged laptop with Hermes and took up the option of the extra cost to get the £200 compensation and insurance.   For the past 10 weeks i was told that my parcel had been lost but then 2 weeks ago I was told by a manager by the name of Junaid that my laptop had been disposed off without my prior knowledge, the parcel was disposed of as it was "damaged beyond repair" after 1 hours travel.   I was told by many customer service agents and a manager that I would receive a refund. I have an audio recording of the manager assuring me I would get my money back and then he (Junaid) Informed me that the head of the claims department had changed his mind as the laptop was damaged through no fault of my own.   I am claiming for £220 plus £25 legal costs. I also sent a letter of deadlock over 2 weeks ago and I did not receive a response despite the letter being signed for.   Details of claim  amount - £220.00 court fee £25.00 total £245.00
    • Can we see a copy of the so-called deadlock letter please. I understand that you at least kept a copy of that. also I suggest that you take a bit of time and start reading on this forum about the steps needed to take a small claim in the county court.   have you read through some of the hermès threads on this forum so that you understand the issues and the basis of your case and that you have started to formulate your arguments?

    • 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 ask you why would 'evidence' which might at best be misconceived & at worst false ie caution et'all go missing ............ let me think brain hurts

 

We're scratching our heads on this too JonCris.

We can think of several scenarios.

Scenario 1, The Police officer who arrested Fred and administered the caution subsequently changed his mind and omitted to tell Fred, his solicitor or the other side.

2, The officer forgot to enter the caution into the system and all the other evidence just got "lost". Not being familiar with police methods, I don't know feasible this option is.

3, In January 2008 when Lyons Davidson wrote to Devon and Cornwall police seeking evidence of the caution to use in the court claim they were planning, whoever found it saw it was completely flawed and removed it at that point, together with the physical evidence. (Again this one sounds far-fetched too)

 

4, Can't think of any more , my brain is struggling too......

Patma - don't go public too early. The judicial system (& the police) may not prove too co-operative if you blast it all over the press at this stage. Plus if you wait for the whole story, Fred might be able to make a bob or two for his version ;)

 

I may be able to source contacts, will check & PM you.

Thanks foolishgirl

Initially you may get a better chance of the media taking an interest if you contact a local paper.If it proves a big enough story, the Nationals would then take an interest.

 

True, thanks electron99. The problem with our local paper though is that it's fiercely loyal to the establishment and Plymouth College of Art is very much a part of the local establishment.

Yes that must be a strong possibility JonCris. The question then arises as to when the complete CD came into their possession and as far as we can guess that would have been when Fred and I took it along to the Police Station where he was cautioned along with a dossier of evidence. This was in July this year after we'd been given the CD.

At that visit we were treated rather dismissively and the Sergeant who received the stuff from us refused to give a receipt for it or to properly enter it into the logbook, saying receipts weren't given any more.He grudgingly agreed to look into it though. When we attempted to contact him a week later to provide further evidence, we were told he was on leave for over a month. We then asked to whom our dossier of evidence had been passed then and were informed it could not be found.

We contacted Professional Standards who probably did a bit of prodding behind the scenes and eventually after several weeks after we'd written to a Chief Superintendent, we were granted a meeting with the Senior Legal Adviser at Headquarters. He produced an identical copy of the CD we'd handed in and so far that has been all they've been able to produce.

There's a flaw in what I said in the last post, sorry. I was forgetting the important fact that the Police informed Lyons Davidson in 2008 that no evidence of any caution existed.

Lyons Davidson began writing to D&C Police in January 2008 asking for evidence of the caution for their planned court action. There were a number of letters went to and fro and culminated in this statement of the Police on 1st December 2008........

 

“We have liaised with a number of colleagues within the Constabulary and unfortunately have been unable to locate any paperwork, or crimefile in relation to this matter. Similarly we have been unable to locate the incident on our computerised logging system.”

 

Perhaps Lyons Davidson sent a copy of the same cd to the police back in 2008, but when we asked LD for a copy of the cctv footage in March 09 they claimed it wasn't yet available.

I have very little court experience but if you don't get a better offer (and I would hope that you do) I'd be more than willing to give it a read/translation.

 

Is TLD off the case now?

Thankyou bedlington, your help is very welcome.

Not sure what's happening with TLD, but I'm hoping he's ok.He hasn't been available for a while now.

Just to clarify the stage we're at regarding the court . As things stand at the moment, there's an Applications Hearing set to take place immediately before the full hearing on 17th November.

The judge ordered that Fred's application to submit his amended defence would be decided in this applications hearing,after ordering the other side to comment, likewise Fred's application to submit his fully particularised counterclaim and we thought this was rather late in the day to decide two such important issues. Furthermore Lyons Davidson's application to file their amended POC including the caution was accepted unconditionally by the judge. A few days ago we filed applications to have both matters allowed without a hearing and so there should be responses coming through any day.

 

Lyons Davidson have gone very quiet and haven't responded to our last two letters, reminding them amongst other things that they still haven't properly complied with the judge's disclosure order of 3rd July.:eek:

Thanks FG, you're doing a great job. What a team!:D

 

Discontinuance would be a wise choice on their part ;):cool::D

This weekend Fred and I will be cooking up a plan which was first suggested by TLD when I last heard from him and make no mistake it's a corker!:D

 

I promise you'll hear about it once it's safely been fired off.:cool:

Nothing at the moment Mr Shed. We're still waiting to hear the results of the last applications and in fact are going to drop into the court tomorrow to see if we can find out why the delay.

The police too are being slow and at the end of last week we sent them quite a stiff letter to let them know we won't wait indefinitely and reminding them we can always lodge a complaint with the IPCC.

Lyons Davidson are maintaining their silence too.

The corking letters I hinted about though have been completed and will be posted tomorrow. As soon as I know they've been safely delivered I'll spill the beans.:)

I've re-visited Plymouth College of Art website the last few days to read through some more of the minutes and other corporate info, but none of the links work any more. Naughty, naughty,:rolleyes::eek: I think someone isn't happy at all the useful information and evidence those pages have turned up.

Fred has enquired at the court today as to what the progress is with his two applications filed with the court a fortnight ago and he was told "They are proceeding through the system.

Unfortunately a number of matters in this case have diappeared into the system and never emerged, so a letter was delivered today reminding the court that a response is outstanding for these particular applications.

The turnaround time of late for applications has been about a week, so we're intrigued as to why these ones seem to be held up.

As Yorky states - Google has a cache of many of the pages.

 

So does the Wayback machine.
