    • Thanks for your reply dx    no I haven’t moved, in all honestly I don’t think they have sent the NOA, hence why I have asked for proof. It was suspicious on the phone as they couldn’t find the letter and then couldn’t attach it to an email    I have no problem paying the £75 if they prove they sent it.    im disputing the £235 as I don’t think they’ve follow the COVID guidelines either. I’m at work and my sister answered the door who is deemed vulnerable and is shielding. I would have told them that if they done a risk assessment (I believe the ministry of justice require it)    im a little confused with what you mean by the NOA running out? They have told me they sent it on the 14th? 
    • Well, I'm being pedantic but I think they're using the wrong term.   Link to the Money Advice Service on salary sacrifice below. It doesn't sound like what you're doing.   https://www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en/articles/salary-sacrifice-schemes   HB
    • can you please refrain from using any hosting sites now please   read our upload guide carefully (esp about using pdfreducer websites) and pop the PDF up here.   can you also rotate the images!!   thank you
    • can't see how you can owe the £235 fee, just because of an error their way that ran the 7 days out because you didn't pay the £75 NOA fee in time. you need to confirm the address the NOA was sent too , thats all. have you moved since the fine was issued?   please be very careful about following advice on some bailiff sites, they can be very misleading at the best of times. if you've not moved, then there can't be any real dispute about not receiving the NOA, letters are deemed received 2 days after posting regardless.   i think you need to get WRITING to the company, offer the £75 . 
    • So after requesting a new SAR this is what we received. Can anyone shed some light on what I could do with these figures?  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PLDAGPrHWMrmqhiu6CDA3Vxg1w8NYQqI/view?usp=sharing   (There is no sensitive info on this link)  Can anyone Help?

    • 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 sunfllower

Although my dispute with crap 1 is looking encouraging i'm certainly not thinking its over yet, as you say more than likely it will get passed on to another dca but thats ok i'm up for a long fight if need be.

 

If it wasn't for this site i don't how i would be coping now as its given me so much information and confidence on how to go about taking on the bankers, especially cerberus who's given me invaluable advice from the beginning.

 

Cheers

Hi All

 

Capital one has sent me CCA with my signature on and it seems genuine so I am not disputing it any further, They also sent me subject access report which I have been working on this morning,

I will summarise all this here.

A .I have actually borrowed £3400 from them (the total usage of card in 6 years ) I have added every penny of every transaction made by me.

 

B, Then I have added all the direct debits payments to them and that totals up to £5700 .

 

This is just simple calculation, Money borrowed = Money paid

 

That does not include interest charged,late payments,cash withdraw. Balance transfers and PPI premium and any pentality fees and charges added to the account.

 

So on moral note I have paid them £2300 extra already. But i still owe them £10500 .

 

Now they have contacted a DCA who calls and threatns me 5 times a day.

 

Please people tell me what should I do?

Do I have a case ?

would justice be done to me in courts?

please help.

Can you scan the CCA, remove identifying details & post it up so we can check whether it's enforceable or not.

An agreement has to contain certain prescribed terms to be enforceable see; http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/debt-collection-industry/105315-my-agreement-enforceable-useful.html

Hi cerberusalert

Thanks i have found the post and it seems similar what i have got.

Crap 1 has passed my account to FPC a DCA who kept threatning me and now has written me to help if i ring them and set a payment plan etc?

I also have received subject access report from crap 1 and added the actual amount i borrowed (spending on the card ) and it comes up about £3800 then i added up direct debits (payments made ) and that comes up £5900 . on a moral note i have paid them already.

the intrest late fees and charges have not added up by me yet and i still owe them £10k....

so this £10k is all interest charges late fees balance transfer fees etc .

what should i do?

please help

You should reclaim all your charges from the original creditor + any PPI that may have been included.

 

If the CCA doesn't contain all the prescribed terms, see http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/debt-collection-industry/105315-my-agreement-enforceable-useful.html then send the 'In Dispute' letter to whoever is demanding payment now http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/582-possible-letter-when-a-questionable-agreementapplication-is-sent

Hi All

 

Crapone has got a DCA known as Fredrickeson International and they call themsalves FPC . They have been threatning me action and one of their firm of solicitors have written me a letter stating they will take action against me blah blah

I have actually borrwed 3800 from cap 1 over the years and have paid them 5700 by direct debit.

Paid 2000 worth of PPI (which I have claimed and they offered 700 refund and i have taken them to Financial Ombudsman service . I also have paid them 1000 in charges and late fees.

I still owe them 11000 ????????

anyway

now this FPC which is debit agency threating action against the address i live (the house is aint mine anymore it is my wife s name). I rang FPC up today becasue they gave me 48 hour notice to pay up othetwise they gonna start litigation?

I rang them up and eventually they offered me Interest freeze ( AT THE MOMENT)17 pound a month direct debit and review now and then to see if i could pay up extra,,,blah blah

I asked how long i have to pay she said at this rate it will take 53 years or so.

she refused to give me any guaranttee that the interst freeze will stay forever or they would be any additional charges in future,

shall i enter into such agreement with them?

Are they just harassing me or they have a case against me?

I have paid cap 1 more than i borrowed .

(I admit the cca sent by cap1 to me is accurate .the form is filled and signed by me and it is genuine ).

I told the DCA that if you take legal action against me the court will only order me what can i afford to pay . which may be £2 a month etc..

But the girl said well you dont know nobody knows aht can happen blah blah

I am scared shall i be or shall i not be?

do they have case and get the home i live?

Or they just bluffing?

Please all help with your kind advice as i am very upset and feel like killing myself.

please tell me shall i say yes to £15.85 or NO

I dont want to get into more trouble than I am in now.

Please please help,

Hussy

I, probably like many others, have been looking in on your thread regularly. You posted a copy of an application form in Post 8 of this thread. Have Capital One since sent you a different agreement?

The reason I ask is because the piece of paper in Post 8 is definitely unenforceable and whether you filled it in and signed it or not, or any other agreement, it still has to include the prescribed terms.

You should not talk to any one on the phone as they will use every trick they can to make you feel obligated to pay something.

It is likely that Fredericksons are bluffing and I am sure others will come along to offer more advice.

I have replied because you seem desperate and some perspective is needed. You will only have any chance of losing your home after a long process which is unlikely, in my opinion to ever happen.

I hope you can calm down about your situation and understand that it is not worth getting so upset about.

I do know how you feel, which is what is great about CAG, because we have all had varying degrees of stress caused by circumstances often out of our control and all occassionally panic.

Hang in there!

You can count on support and advice from here.

Hi Hussy 786

 

I'm sorry to hear your feeling the way you do at the moment but please try and stop worrying so much as i agree with everything exchange said before me. I really do believe they are bluffing like they did me because unless they have sent you with another so called agreement since the application form they originally sent (which you said was like the one i received in post 8 of this thread), there really isn't much they can do to enforce the debt.

 

You must stop talking to them over the phone and send all correspondence by post and recorded delivery, otherwise they will threaten you and try to squeeze as much money out of you as possible, then come back for some more and make you feel the way you do now.

 

I also had fredrickson sending me threat-o-grams back in October but when i sent this letter http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/574-letter-when-account-has-been-passed-on-whilst-agreement-request-is-in-dispute they soon backed off and closed their file on me and sent it back cap 1 and i've heard nothing since.

 

Keep your chin up mate and don't these **** bags get on top of you:)

Please don`t let these swines get to you I know it`s easier said than done but it is usually a hollow threat and it only winds you up further if you allow them to get to you so please please do not speak to them hang up or whatever

 

They can`t enforce the debt from what i have read so they don`t have much ammunition to fire a judge if you ever got to court wouldn`t expect you to pay more than you can afford I know it`s hard but please try and calm down a bit we all get stressed that`s what these morons hope will happen don`t let them win keep your chin up:)

Hi Exchange Jet and Laura

 

Thank you so much for your encouraging support . Fredrickson wrote me another letter (by their lawer Brian clarke and co ) asking me to negotiate otherwise they will get discharge order from court etc against the home (the house is in my wife s name though since novermber 2009 ).

just for interest even if they have valid cca against me can they take home?

 

Tthank you so much for your support.

ACCOUNT IN DISPUTE

 

Date:

 

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

Account number: XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX

 

I am in receipt of your letter dated XXXXX

 

This account is in dispute with **original creditor/DCA** and has been since DATE .

Not only is this a breach of the Consumer Protection From Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 in line with the Office Of Fair Trading's debt collection guidelines, but also in breach of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and Data Protection Act 1998

 

My previous dispute from **DATE** has NOT been answered.

 

As **original creditor/name of debt collection agency** are now in default of my Consumer Credit Act agreementrequest and have also breached *s10 Data Protection Act request , I consider this account to be in SERIOUS DISPUTE.

 

As you are aware while my Consumer Credit Act request remains in default enforcement action is NOT permitted, under s127 this constitutes a complete defence at law.

 

Consequentially any legal action you pursue will be averred as both UNLAWFUL and VEXATIOUS.

 

Now I would respectfully suggest that this account is returned to the **original creditor/DCA** for resolution of these defaults and breaches, as **New DCA** cannot lawfully pursue any enforcement activities.

 

If **New DCA** chooses to ignore my dispute and attempt enforcement, I will initiate legal action and file reports with the appropriate authorities, including, but not limited to, Trading Standards, Office of Fair Trading, Information Commissioners Office, Financial Ombudsman Service and possible court action.

 

After taking advice, I am of the opinion that any continued pursuit is in violation of the Consumer Protection From Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 in line with the Office Of Fair Tradings Collection Guidelines

 

I hope that this will not be necessary and an acceptable solution can be accomplished.

 

I would appreciate your due diligence in this matter.

I look forward to hearing from you in writing.

 

Yours faithfully

Im happy to help with support and my own opinions but as i have no legal qualifications If I offer any thoughts to your problems please take it as from my life experience only and not of any legal standing. Always take further advice from the legal experts in your final action,

I reported Moorcroft to the FOS they have had numerous complaints about them and was told they looking into their licence to operate, I wouldn`t worry about these people unless they have purchased the debt they have no rights to collect on them

 

They cannot do anything to you if they do not own the debt you are not obliged to even talk to them tell them in writing to return the debt to the original creditor and that they a 3rd party to the debt and have no authority to discuss this with you
