    • It seems to me that you could probably apply for judgement on 30 October. However it's a good idea to keep on checking regularly to see if it is permitted before then. As soon as it allows you, do it.
    • Deemed service on a company is two days after issue. Deemed service on a litigant in person is five days after issue – unless something has changed. I've already said that proposing to send further particulars is generally speaking unnecessary and only complicates matters as you are finding out. However as you have indicated that you are sending further particulars, send them further particulars and simply state in the body of the particulars that you have nothing to add to the particulars of claim contained in the original claim form at this moment. Send that straightaway so that when you apply for judgement you can click the box and say that yes you have done that. It might not have been fatal not to have informed them that it was a laptop – but it is better that you did and the important thing is that they had been told of the item and of the value at the time that you entered into the delivery contract. I think that you will find that laptops are one of their prohibited items – along with almost everything else in the world
    • *Update* turns out Capquest bought the debt from Phoenix Recoveries. We now have a reference number for our solicitor to use. 
    • Ah I thought you meant in the actual MCOL claim, in the ebay listing yes, in the PackLink compensation claim yes as well, in the MCOL claim I made no mention aside from the value of the item.   and just an update:   I am able to request a judgement from the two separately.   The claim was issued on the 13th, plus 5 days and another 14 days = 1st Nov my guess (not accounting for business days)   This was also added:    
    • Okay, so what you have to do is you have to take the money you paid to the garage which I understand is £2000. You've gotta consider that the value of the labour they put in was completely wasted because you had to have the turbo taken out and then refitted – is this correct? However, the turbo itself was useful to you and so you should be required to pay for the cost of the turbo. If this is correct and you have independent evidence that the turbo had been incorrectly fitted then you should sue them for the balance. This means that you have to find out the cost of a turbo – was it an original or was it a pattern part? Anyway, you have to find out the cost of the turbo and deduct that from the £2000 and that should be the value of your claim unless you can tell us of any other losses which you have reasonably incurred as a result of their poor workmanship. Let us know

    • 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 this is my first time on here and wondered if anyone can help me.

 

I received a parking charge notice from G24 Ltd this morning saying I had overstayed the permitted allowance, along with a photo of the car entering and leaving, they want £95 or £75 if paid in 14 days from the date of event.

 

I have read a few threads but still not to sure what to do. If I ignore this letter will I have the baliffs knocking at my door. Has the baliffs called on anyone regarding the above

 

please advise I am worried sick about it :mad:

Hi advice from members is ignore, ignore and ignore again.

You will get two letters from PPC two letter from DCA(next desk) and then two letters from solicitor(next but one desk) each letter getting more desperate/threatening

 

As for bailiffs they could only come to your house if

 

1, the PPC actually had the cheek to take you to court

2, you did not defend and they won by default.

(I have only seen two cases where they did take someone to court) though I have seen many many threats to take someone to court.

3, you then did not pay.

4, they would then have to apply for enforcement.

well today I came home to a notice of intended legal action letter with a lovely yellow stripe on it.

I now have till aug 25th by 10am to pay the £95 owed.

 

Court action may be taken against me without further warning

court fees and legal costs may increase the sum I owe if judgement is obtained and the following steps may be taken .

 

1. Deductions from my salary

2. Seizure and sale of property

3. My means examined by the court

 

Seems to me there is an awful lot of mays

Hi 0623 - I've had the same thing with CEL in December 2007 - all the threats and stuff....

 

Simply ignore - do NOT correspond at all, otherwise you simply extend the period of harassment.

 

Eventually things will go quiet - I've heard no more for well over a year now - still waiting for the court summons they promised me - lol :)

I received a "parking ticket" and photo's from G24 about four months ago. I ignored it and subsequent letters, then I received the anticipated letter(s) from CCSCOLLECT, which I also ignored. Their last letter to me was telling me they were coming to visit me at home. that was three weeks ago. This morning I have received a letter from DWF, who seem to be a legitimate firm of solicitors in Leeds. They are now trying to collect on behalf of CCSCollect. The only possible dodgy thing I can see about their letter is it is signed DWF LLP, and not in someone's actual name. Does any one know anything about DWF LLP? any info or advice most welcome.

If my experience of CCSCollect with four Parking Eye scams is anything to go by the yellow stripe letter [final final warning] could be the last one before they give up, though they did once send me a final final final warning [in red I think] threatening a home visit, which they didn't do of course. [wish they would visit me, my dogs would love to meet them!]

Think about it, if they believed they had a case they would have issued court proceedings by now instead of sending these pathetic bits of paper.

Keep ignoring, keep smiling.

Is it not illegal to threaten comeone with baliffs and home visits regarding a civil matter?

 

I cannot threaten anyone with baliffs that owes me money privately, i must take them to court.
