    • Yes it is the Arndale. Until 2018 it had always been free to park there then they introduced charges. I'm guessing the carer might have thought it was still free for 3 hours. 
    • I sold an item on ebay through their bidding system, ebay recommended I use PackLink as a delivery service so I did. I dropped the item at a local shop and video tapped the item being taped in the parcel with the label stuck on. The parcel was scanned and approved awaiting to be collected by somebody from Hermes, the person collected this parcel later that same day (both events are recorded on hermes tracking website) and the tracking did not update past that point. I contacted Ebay, PackLink and made attempts to contact Hermes the following day to trace the parcel, and it took PackLink 6 working days to establish that the parcel was 'lost'. Hermes contact was appalling as it is automated (live chat and phone) and when I could get through, their automated system stated that due to the label being from PackLink, all issues are with them.   Once the parcel was lost, I was told to write up a claim form, which I did so. They initially offered me £25 + label cost, which I told them I reject through email. They then refunded me both amounts despite me rejecting this.   It took 6 working days for them to admit a problem and to send me that amount despite my rejection.   I found this companies house number for PackLink: 09026541   That claim form you have linked me is for people who have a claim against them, is this the right link (it asks me questions such as if I received notice from the creditor, why I ceased payments etc)   Thank you for the assistance.   I have just checked today and it says:   HERMES PARCELNET LIMITED filed an acknowledgment of service on 19/10/2020   The claim was submitted by me on the 12th.   Am I able to PM you privately with my claim form?  
    • Is this the Arndale?  On Google Maps it seems the only multi-storey in the area, and it's "managed" by ES Parking.  I see that there were recently three hours' free parking.  As dx says, that will be on the planning permission which immediately knocks the fleecers' claim out of the water.   Plus, love to see them pursue someone for driving who can't physically drive!
    • sorry here is the invoice back up, there were several 3.45Mb single page uploads that had exceeded the 4.8MB limit for upload     Dongara marine pty invoice.pdf
    • A great truth in that article HB, the test & trace is a shambles, and Wales bought into that system, when they culd have set up their own like the county of ceredigion did, that has kept it under control.  There is rising unrest and derision and much verbal tolchocking of Drakeford on social media. he also banned halloween, so expect a children's rebellion on October 31st, some are already saying they will dress up and go out regardless, don't think police would look good trying to fine some 10 11 and 12 year olds £1,000  for breaching lockdown, press would be all over it.

    • 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.

    • 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!

The six years will start from the date you defaulted, not when they put the default on your file.

Hi,

 

6 years from 08/02/08 :(

 

Perhaps you can send this:

 

 

- HARASSMENT WARNING -

 

WARNING: PROTECTION FROM HARASSMENT ACT 1997

 

 

 

Telephone Number:

 

Re: Harassment by Telephone

 

 

 

** *** 2009

 

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

 

I am writing in relation to telephone calls that I have received from your organisation, which I deem to be personally harassing. I have requested that these calls stop, but I am still receiving calls. I now require the telephone number listed above to be completely removed from your systems.

 

I am in the view that your continued calling puts you in breach of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

 

This is a private telephone line, operated on a contract with the intention of receiving and making personal phone calls, I have not authorised any other member of my family to receive calls from your organisation using this PRIVATE TELEPHONE LINE.

 

By using this telephone number without my permission you are interfering with my ability to use my own private property for the duration of any call.

 

It is my right to require that this telephone line, which is licensed solely to myself, is kept clear for my own personal calls.

 

It is consequently my view that you are committing the tort of interference with contract insofar as for the duration of each call you make to me without my permission, you are interfering with my contractual right to receive and make personal calls on my private telephone line.

 

Continued interference with my contractual rights in this manner will result in legal action.

 

If you continue to harass me by telephone, you will also be in breach of the Communications Act (2003) s.127 and I will report you to the Office of Communications, Trading Standards and the Office of Fair Trading, meaning that you will be liable for a substantial fine.

 

Be advised that all telephone calls from your company will be recorded.

 

Regards.

 

Scott.

Yes 6 years from the date of default, whether or not you have settled the account.

 

I made the mistake of trying to keep accounts out of default when I lost my job, it just delays the agony.

A default naturally drops off a credit file after six years no matter whether it's paid or not.

This is getting complicated :)

 

If it's not been paid, it's not been settled, it just drops off after 6 years.

A defaulted account, 'the default' can still be paid even when defaulted. In your case looking at your info in your oringinal post you have not paid the default amount (£1735) it is not settled.

 

The default date was 08/02/08 and so will drop off your credit file 08/02/14

If it's marked as settled then as far as you are concerned it has been paid. Make sure you have a 'hard copy' of your credit report or take a 'screen shot' of it & then make Robbingscum away prove that you owe this alleged debt by sending them this;

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Account no:

 

You have contacted me/us regarding the account with the above reference number, which you claim is owed by myself/ourselves.

 

I/we would point out that I/we have no knowledge of any such debt being owed to (insert company name).

 

I am/we are familiar with the Office of Fair Trading Debt Collection Guidance which states that it unfair to send demands for payment to an individual when it is uncertain that they are the debtor in question.

 

I/we would also point out that the OFT say under the Guidance that it is unfair to pursue third parties for payment when they are not liable. In not ceasing collection activity whilst investigating a reasonably queried or disputed debt you are using deceptive/and or unfair methods.

 

Furthermore ignoring and/or disregarding claims that debts have been settled or are disputed and continuing to make unjustified demands for payment amounts to physical/psychological harassment.

 

I/we would ask that no further contact be made concerning the above account unless you can provide evidence as to my/our liability for the debt in question.

 

I/we await your written confirmation that this matter is now closed. Otherwise I will have no option but to make a complaint to the trading standards department and consider informing the OFT of your actions.

 

I/we look forward to your reply.

 

**Edit to suit**

 

Remember, don’t sign the letter.

It applies to anyone asking you for money, third party fourth fifth, etc etc Whoever it is asking you for payment now, is the letter you need to send them, that Cerbs posted.

If the debt has not been settled, paid or whatever by the time it drops off the credit file, can it be defaulted again and the clock starts ticking for another six years, I'm thinking that whoever has put the default on the file sells the debt and it's then defaulted again?

No they can't default twice on the same debt, send the letter to Robbingscum.

No, put simply once the debt has passed it's 6 year limitation point, you cannot be defaulted for it again, you cannot be taken to court, they cannot obtain a CCJ, they cannot enforce any legal collection activity against the debtor. If the debt is sold on once the DCA is informed it is SB, then they should be reported to the OFT.

However DCA's often will and do sell on SB debts. something which Lowlifes seem to buy up amongst others, they can ask you for payment against the debt, as factually the debt does still exist, they just can't legally enforce any collection activity and once you inform them that the debt is SB, that should be the last you hear from them!:smile:

Am I right in thinking then that if all my accounts were defaulted in 2005, these accounts will disappear altogether from my credit record in 2011? If this is the case then in 2011 there will only be good information on my file. Well if I can succesfully defend the claim by Phoenix

eg mobile phone, car insurance, mortgage, bank account etc.

Take Care

what do you mean SB? how do i know if they sold my debt?

 

 

also how long do i wait after sending that letter for a reply

SB means Statute Barred, ie if you or they have heard nothing, nor you have paid anything toward the debt, nor have you admitted to them 'in writing' that you do indeed owe them the debt, then after 6 years, 5 in Scotland, it is then deemed to be Statute Barred and a DCA is unable to take any legal collection activity toward the debt, so they are unable to threaten you with any legal action such as taking you to court and obtaining a CCJ (county court judgment)

This is only the case in 'simple' debts, so unsecured bank loans credit cards etc will come under the limitation act (SB)

 

As for asking for a CCA, you need to send it via recorded delivery to whoever is asking you for payment, as I understand it from your thread, Robbers way?

 

Once you have sent them the CCA request, they then have 12+2 working days to comply with the request.

If they fail to issue you with the CCA then you should withold all future payments to them, until such time that they issue you with a 'legally enforceable' CCA.

 

Whatever they send you post it back up on here so that the experts can take a look to make sure it is legally enforceable, but do remember to remove all identifying names adresses, account numbers, bar codes etc.

 

Send robbers way the CCA request letter, only if you know you do owe the debt. If you know nothing of the debt then the letter that cerbs posted earlier is the one to send.
