    • I have captured the best images of the sign at the entrance to the car park that I could, from Google Street View. It strikes me that no mention/agreement of having to pay £100 could have been seen from the car.  The writing is too small.
    • My aged uncle had been paying for his TV licence by auto renewing monthly direct debits despite (despite turning 75 years old 7 years ago). My request for a refund was ignored for over a month, so I made a Direct Debit Indemnity claim and received a full refund for 7 years overpayment within the day from my bank.  It was very simple.   I then asked TV licensing for a compensation payment for the interest and they have refused on the grounds they did nothing wrong. It seems they do not take customer dates of birth. This is why  they have no idea whether their customers should be charged or whether they have reached the age for a free license.   It seems to me (especially for the benefit of old people), it would be simple to include a date of birth in the application process and therefore automatically cancel direct debits or even reject applications once they become eligible for a free license.   My question is, can I insist on interest? I understand statutory 8% interest is only an award if a judge  (at a county court etc) allows it. As I received the refund without going to court, I guess I cannot insist on that interest. However, I hope to proceed to make this scandal more public and seek the interest on his behalf.   Any ideas gratefully received.
    • Hi all,   Car: 5 years old, 30k mileage purchased from the main dealer of the brand the car is.     Handover was pretty rushed and after 2 hours we just wanted to get out of there with the car which got further delayed because various accessories were removed from the car - something quite common if another customer is buying a similar car and has requested for instance mats to be included.  Luckily I had already taken photographs at the point of reserving the car a few weeks ago so stated we expected these to be in the car.   Main Issue:   It states on the multipoint check "Four Wheel Drive: All four wheels must always be fitted with tyres of the same type, make and tread pattern" We have 1 front tyre of a budget brand, the other 3 the same however tread levels are very different in all 4 with the rears always differing by half a tyre (4 vs 7)   Annoyingly the entire book pack was missing (raised for replacement) however I found the manual online and it too states: "All four wheels must be equipped with tires that are the same brand and have the same construction and tread pattern so that the drive system is not damaged by different wheel speeds"   Finally one tyre has cracking around the shoulder though unsure how much this matters on the location - this is the lower tread level tyre too.  (raised during first visit) and passed the MOT only a few days ago with flying colours.   I had my phone on the desk recording the entire 2 hours due to the way the pre-sales was handled and to transcribe the Multipoint checklist:   41:40 Sales Guy says: Multipoint check included is part of the service Multipoint Check and oil service carried out last month (says date) been checked over for any last minute things this is for you, all ticked off, lets tear these off as we go You need to sign now to say you have received the report   Obviously our signature is on the basis of what he said verbally that all was ticked off and ok.   The day ended essentially with all documents in a folder, keys and folder handed over and we said our goodbyes.  We then dragged him back and spent a further 40 minutes faffing around for the bits that were missing in the car by essentially taking them out of anothrer car, trying the fit, finding another etc   So any leg to stand on re tyres and more importantly, the policy the brand sits on with the checksheet and manual?   thanks Apologies for those who do prefer a bullet point list, I have tried to keep just the facts in here!  
    • After a repossession start 2019 the lender marketed the property and received offers within weeks - which were relayed to the mortgagor.  All were low offers compared to lender's original valuation.  2 of the offers were unable to proceed due to other legal issues. One was able to proceed - but lender failed to accept.   One year later lender organized sealed bids situation with agents to try gather interest.  The same buyer as one year earlier placed the highest bid - the same level as before.  However I now understand the lender is renovating the property with a view to rent it.  And now pursuing mortgagor for bankruptcy. What can mortgagor do? Lender has wasted 18months adding interest and extra costs.  And created a huge shortfall. Meanwhile, lender has refused to disclose costs or interest accrued since repossession

    • 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!

Fred09,

if this is true, why does the phone messages keep changing.when you phone during the day it says all our operators are busy,then later on it gives you the opening hours.someone must be changing the message on the phones.

Has anyone been able to speak to someone there recently?

 

I haven't been able to. The mesages may change due to the number of calls going through to them

The messages are generated using a PBX system regardless if there is anyone there. I am now resigned to the fact that we've all been ripped off, if I lived closer I would visit Natasha Tate at home to request my money back!

I suspect that there will be little purpose on tracking Ms Tate down; the firm is registered as a Limited Liability Partnership. Consequently, the partners are not personally liable - except in certain circumstances, which may apply in this case.

 

The first step is to establish what has happened. I'd suggest phoning Swansea Trading Standards, or even sending an envelope Special Delivery to see if it's signed for or returned.

 

I must confess that he signs don't look good for anyone getting money back unless partners are found personally liable and they have assets.

The final letter went off to the lenders last week. They no longer call me. Just waiting for final paperwork. I have not received any notification of changes to my credit file.

The system is good and it works.

Creditors are becoming very bad in their handling with debtors and if they call you need to say that under the CCA the debt is disputed and if you pursue for payment during this time you are operating outside of the law.

Most bankers are not well educated and few do their exams. I know because i used to be one and was in the minority for studying them!!!

 

Therefore when you speak with them re legal matters theu are lost!

 

 

Hi Caroline

 

Claim Management UK Ltd just phoned me and told me that I can write off my Credit card debt. I want to know if I can trust this company, they want me to pay £375 upfront and apparently it takes about 28 days for my debt to be written off. Should I proceed?

Hi and welcome SznMarx.

 

If you read through the whole thread I think that would answer your question.

 

By the way, Caroline and another 'positive poster' were strongly suspected of being connected to the above company.

It sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?

Problem is, when something sounds too good to be true, it generally is!

Don't touch it with a barge-pole.

They do not GUARANTEE success. That is because there ARE no guarantees.

And if (when) they fail, they get to keep the £375.00 that you paid up front.

Do some reading on this site. Start your own thread. Ask a few questions, then start the reclaim process, yourself. The chances of you being successful are higher than if you pay someone else to do it for you.

The added bonus is that you get to keep all the proceeds, yourself.

Thank you for your replies Cashins and Rooster.

 

I have read through the whole thread and it all seems a bit dodgy to me, especially Caroline! I am so glad I didn't pay them anything today. I asked the guy to phone me back in three hours as I have to speak to my husband and see if he wants to do it as well, but I was actually doing some research on this. When he phoned back I told him that I know how their scheme works and that I am not interested, he disconected the call ! :lol:

Hiya All

 

I am in the same boat, it has taken loads of calls to get to stage i am at now (which is 1 final affidavit and a few letters to go). I thought this was nearly complete.

 

Ive been unable to speak with someone for the last week, then came across this thread which is very worrying.

 

Within the last 30mins the 0845 026 4774 which i have been calling does not go to message anymore, its just cuts off. I think that is final confirmation that this is a [problem]. I have tried calling Claims Management UK too and this just rings out.

 

It looks like i will have to contact my bank(s) and try and say sorry to them as i have had defaults etc registered under me now becuase Tate-Lloyd told me to stop paying my monthly fees.

 

This is one big con and i will be contacting my credit card company to get this payment claimed back for the fee i paid Claims Management UK. I have also emailed Trading Standards but i dont think any of us will ever get to bottom of it

I agree with you ajf73 - i dont usually cercum to those type of telephone calls but i am far in debt and thought it sounded ok, i even checked out their website etc and all looked good. I though the £250 (or whatever it was) seemed a fair amount to wipe off over £10k worth of debt so i went ahead......I wish i didnt now.

 

Like you say you are in more debt now becuase its failed and have had default notices etc from companies

Hi all.. Firstly I would like to state that it is CLAIM management UK and not CLAIMS... they are two different companies - one above board and the other working with Tate Lloyd - Previously City Legal Solutions.

 

I joind CMC in December last year to clear my debt and they handed me over to City Legal where i started off with great service and regular phone calls... I did my Affidavits and sent them back but some of the debtors who have phoned me say they haven't seen any Affidavits or received any letters... hmmmm

I was initially under Debt Management as i was made redundant and couldn't carry my debt any longer.. and CMC told me to cancel all further payments to the Debt Management company and to all other outstanding debtors as my case was now with them, which I did... To date.. almost 6 MONTHS down the line.. I cannot get through to either company, I have been told that they (Tate Lloyd) have taken on too much work and now are swamped and cant handle the load... and that I must now be patient! I have sent emails which are now returning with fatal error on them.. and I have sent text messages to the "lawyer" who was dealing with my case with no luck! I called CMC last week and they told me they were meeting with Tate Lloyd yesterday morning (Monday 18th May) to discuss the backlog situation. I now cant get through to CMC. Oh Joy!! :sad:

 

I am ever the hopeful one and stay positive that things might turn around and that they are genuinely struggling with their work load.. but with debtors constantly harassing me and the threat of baliffs coming to my door.. I think i'm a little in the poop with no way out!

 

Sorry guys.. dont know what else to say!! Hope there is light at the end of this tunnel, but we can only hope!!

 

Good luck to all!!

Lolly, i think that about sums it all up.

 

I have got to exactly the same position and up until today finding this site and their phone line going dead i was hoping it was just a case of timing but now i think i will go home tonight and contact my debtors and say sorry etc and get back on track and not listen to another claim company again that says they can get my money wiped off!!!

Companies like CMC, Foneline, Tate-Lloyd etc should all be held accountable, they are telling people to stop paying their debts but not following through themselves so it just leaves people in the myer

I had a phone call out of the blue from CMUK this afternoon regarding my claim..

 

They told me that Tate-lloyd would be getting no further work from them and gave me the option of having my claim given to another company called Legal Redress. This would be done at no cost to me and they would send the paper work out to me 1st class today... they were very appologectic about the whole situation and basicly told me that tate-lloyd had handled everything extreamly badly and that they just couldnt handle the amount of clients that CMUK introduced to them.. and once again told me that they would be sending no more clients to them..

 

I have contacted my creditors and set up re-payment plans with them all so I am just going to continue with those and see what happens with Legal Redress..
