    • 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 stupidly took out a 'debit card advance' with the money shop at the begining of january. I had to write out cheques to the value just incase i didnt pay by card.


I rolled this over 3times at £40 a time as i was in no financial state to pay in full. I explained that i was struggling, they said i need to pay or they would cash the cheques and i would incur a £25 charger per cheque (3 cheques).


They cashed the cheques! So now i have been issued by one of their default notices as they didnt clear. My balance is now £325.00 balance!


They ring me allllll the time so i wrote saying i would only respond by letter or email. they ring my work and one day my collegue answerd the phone and they had a go at her thinking it was me!!! i was mortified! The bloke that rings me all the time says that untill i talk to him, he will continue to ring and that no letter has been recieved. Hes a nasty piece of work!!!


they also send cards through the post, making it clear that i am in difficulty which is embarassing!


they have not responded to my letter, i have proof it has been recieved as i sent it recorded and i have a copy of the letter!


Any advice much appreciated as i will not be bullied by these people!!

I would send them the harrassment letter from the template library and also report them to the OFT as they are way out of order. I would make sure you 'lose' your debit card and get a new one just in case they try and help themselves. Offer them a payment plan you can afford and keep copies of all correspondence- insist they freeze all interest.


You are right not to let them bully you- once they realise you can't be intimidated they will have to negotiate albeit you may have to accept the odd embarrassing call or letter

emma can I just ask the rude person who spoke to u at the money shop was his named called Dean as he might of been the same person I spoke to. I had numerous amount of calls from them at work which was very embarassing, they then cashed 4 cheques for £400.00 last month. I spoke to them and the woman said I cant have the money back as it was simply "what I owed them" not a nice set of people!

I cant quite remember his name, i think he has told me it once but thats it. Must be a tactic so i cant make a direct complaint. In the process of producing and sending another letter as they still havnt responded. I will also record the phone calls if i do decide to speak to them at all. They are evil, all of them. I would love to see what they would be like if the shoe was on the other foot!!!!!

Why don't you try being a bit kinded hey? This website is here to help and advise people, not to judge and tell them off!


Ladytg might have fallen into financial problems which caused her not to be able to pay her debt off. This does happen and unfortunately these types of companies pray on people if they are low on cash!


1st post mmmmm.... joined today...... do you work for the money shop hun?
