    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

Anyone dealt with the lovely people from the funding corporation?

I have had a constant headache from them, anyway can anyone take a look at the attached c/a, I would like to know if this looks enforceable and also can't get the figures to tie up, I have been told that as this the PPI and loan amounts are not shown seperately this is a unenforceable loan:

 

PPI (which is useless) £1860.00

Amount of credit £10000.00

Intereset £5073.00 @14.9 apr

 

5 years @ £282.23 per month

 

Also after months of letters and phonecalls regarding the PPI they finally agreed to cancel this but my payments only dropped by 81p per month, (no refund either)

 

Be grateful for any suggestionfccreditagreement-1.jpg

I think the PPI cannot be just added to the rest cos you would pay interest on that over the term and then it would not be the sum shown - I am sure others will come back also on this question but does look similar layout to others found unenforceable so hold on for reply:)

Thanks for the reply!

 

Received a letter from The Funding Corporation yesterday, this is what they had to say:

 

"The Payment Protection Insurance you have purchased is classed as a linked transaction to you loan.

It cannot exist on the finance agreement without the principal loan. Consequently it is not a separate agreement and is not required to be detailed as such.

I can confirm the credit agreement you have signed is compliant with the CCA 1974".

 

 

Can someone help me, is this correct or are the F/C trying to fob me off AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!

Yes its a personal loan from May 2004 and that was all the paperwork that was sent, After weeks of sending letters regarding the enforceability of my agreement (the ppi and loan amount being lumped together and not shownseperately) The Funding Corporation have totally ignored all letters and emails and have failed to give me an answer, I have now stopped paying and now I get constant phonecalls to both mobile and home, (I have sent them 2 harrassment letters and 2 emails advising them to stop but they are relentless and still continue.

I have wrote numerous letters requesting answers to my query above but choose to ignore these.

I have now been sent a letter from Roman Recoveries (same address as The Funding Corporation), saying if I do not pay within 7 days they will:

 

Get a court order under the attachment of Earnings to deduct money from my salary

 

Send a baliff to take goods to the value.

 

HELP!! Can they actually do this, I have sent all letters recorded delivery and also taking times and dates of phonecalls.

Just Thinking About This To End It For You

 

Tell Them As Well As All The Other Things Mentioned You Consider The Account Unenforcable For This Reason

 

Ppi Was Added To The Loan, There By You Are Paying Interest On It,

The Ppi Is Not Part Of The Original Loan So The Agreement Is Crap Ref

 

Wilson V FCT

 

You Require Also On The Ppi Statement Of Means The Part In The T&c Telling You The Ppi Would Be Front Loaded And That You Would Be Paying Interest On It.

 

If They Maintain The Ppi Is A Linked Transaction With The Loan, Where Is You Sig As Consent For This And Are The Above A High Court Judge

 

 

Did You Ever Receive A Ppi Policy Doc And Who Are The Underwriters

Thanks for all your good help!!!!!

 

Yes it was lumped together with my loan, been paying as one payment every month, I will write back to them and include the details you advised.

So the letter they sent saying that this is classed as a linked transaction to my loan is that another load of rubbish they are telling me?

They eventually did send me a leaflet on the PPI I had been sold which seemingly was bronze cover which is a life cover policy, which I would not have taken as myself and husband both have adequate life cover, I think the underwriters were AXA.

 

Cheers for all your help, feel more confident taking these cowboys on now.

pinky

 

what i am after is the statement of means

 

its a document pre check list o see if the insurance is sutable for you

 

for instance

 

you could be a sky diver who smokes 100 cigs a day

 

its a legal requirment

 

i know these so called car finance cretins never did these

 

if the insurance is part of the agreement, it calls the whole agreement into question if there is no statement of means

 

dont get me on to the undisclosed commission payments also

 

thats to come

No nothing like that, the cheque was hand delivered by courier, and did not have time to read over paperwork before I signed, also I was self employed at the time, and they did not ask to see my accounts.

yes, changed my mind

 

also in your letter, ask them what commission payments were made ref the insurance

also a copy of the underwriting sheet

 

all that should give them some thing to think about

The agreement you have and the amount you pay is bang on the same as mine.

 

Totally unenforcable. I am on my way to court with the muppet corp, Barrister has gave me a 90% chance of winning, writing off £23,000 and claiming back up to £5900.

 

If you want to discuss it in detail, pm me as i dont want to put the details on a public forum until i win my case.

Still determind not to pay up until they give me what im looking for.

Got a letter back today from the OFT saying that the F/C do have a licence and that they have noted my concerns and that they will be looked at but will not inform me of any outcomes as they do not act on behalf of individuals, any advice where I should turn next, also gettin worried not had a phonecall from F/C all week, makes me think their up to something.

Hi Postggj, Just received a letter from the F/C today in response to the letter I sent them containing the advice you had advised previously, they quoted the following:

 

"The Credit Agreement is laid out correctly in line with Regulation 2(8)/(9) of the of the Consumer Credit (Agreements) Regulations 1983 (as amended). This requires to only show the principal heading and signature box.

 

I am unsure what you refer to in this point. Please provide clarification.

 

No commission payments were made. Our underwriting process is fully your automated and no underwriting sheets exists.

 

I trust this answers tyour questions and look forward to you bringing your account up to date".

 

 

ANY HELP WHAT SHOULD BE MY NEXT MOVE

 

 

CHEEERS XXXX

i think that what they are trying to say is that on the documents they provide in response to your request they only have to show that the signature box is there on the form but that they are allowed to delelte your signature from it
