    • Ok thanks guys for all the help & advice I think I will go the DRO option but will open a new bank account somewhere else first etc.  The only other things im little worried about is reading on the DRO it says about I wont be able to apply for credit but what about things like my car insurance as thats classed as credit paying it monthly Plus they say i must not have assets or car worth over £1,000 so what about things like my car worth around 2.5k and as said before when my father passed away he left me his camper that I cant part with its worth about 4k and what about things in house and jewellery etc ?? Can they come to house and check and so on
    • threads merged  please keep to one thread per issue.   dx  
    • read it proprly.. it doesn't say WILL anything and original creditors don't do court as they don't want the judge delving into their business model nor the bad publicity.   as for the FOS you just have to let it run. yours is a very short time since yo put it into them typically it always takes 6-9mts normally before they move on anything though they usually send you an ACK they have the complaint.        
    • Since the last post on this thread I have sent a complaint to the FOS but have not heard anything from them as yet either, I'm guessing they're rather snowed under and on reduced staff so no real surprise.   Still had nothing approaching help from lending stream but today they emailed me default notices for the loans, again demanding I phone them and pay up in full or they will begin court proceedings.   Any advice as to how I should proceed please?
    • Hi,   I received two PCNs in October 2019 from Havering Council. All the below applies to both PCNs, as the correspondences were at the same time:   Fast forward to February 2020, I file witness statements on grounds that I made representations within 28 days but did not receive a rejection notice.   The TEC cancelled charges.   Havering write to me asking for supporting evidence of representations that I made.   I email them screenshots with timestamps of the representations.   In early March Havering reply to me by email 'confirming receipt of email and both cases are now on hold pending an investigation. Please allow time for a full response to be sent.'   Fast forward to 18th June Havering write to me the attached:  Havering Charge Certificate.pdf   Now, it seems as though the sender of this letter is not up to date with both cases and is unaware of the TEC's decisions, as well as the email correspondence.   My questions are, 1) What should I do next? and 2) Is there a way to use their misstep to avoid paying for the PCN entirely?   Thank you.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hello,

 

Can anyone please give me some advice. I've written to Credit Solutions Limited as they have threatened to doorstep call me. I wrote to them to say that under the Armstrong -v- Sheppeard and Short Ltd [1959] 2 QB per Lord Evershed M.R. ruling they could not visit me at home as I revoked there license to do so.

 

Credit Solution response was:

 

In relation to field visits in subsection 2.12 of Office of Fair Tradings' guidelined doorstep visits must give adequate notice of the time and date of visit. The Armstrong v Sheppard (1959) case you quoted is dependant on each individual circumstance and only such order to refuse access can come from a court and not from the individual.

 

Does anyone have a copy of the Armstrong -v- Sheppard authority or know of of a webpage that I can get a copy from.

 

Advice urgaently needed. If Credit Solutions are lying about the individual not being allowed to revoke license I will have to report them to the OFT.

Whatever else you do, make it clear you will not discuss anything with them on your doorstep. You will not accept documents that could be posted. You will not pay them anything. Therefore they will gain absolutely nothing from visiting, they will just waste their time.

Complete twaddle!!

If, and I do mean If they turn up at your door, tell whoever it is that they have exactly 10 seconds to get off your property, and if they remain you are calling the Police. And if they just sit outside in their car watching your property, call the police and tell them that you feel threatened as someone is sat outside watching your house.

That reply is just them wanting to have the last word. They are 'incorrect' in stating that you can only refuse them access via a court.

Report them immediately to the OFT. The bloody cheek of it, I tell you:evil::evil:


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

P.S Credit Solutions are not right. An individual 'IS' allowed to revoke license.

Thanks for the advice. I'm trying to obtain a copy of the Armstrong -v- Sheppard law report to send with my letter of complaint to Credit Solutions. As I see it they are in breach of the OFT guidelines by incorrectly quoting the law for there own benifit.

 

Also they say there client adviced them of no dispute outstanding on the account. Even thou the agreement have no prescribed terms and just wants to ignore the fact.

Threats, threats and more threats, what a load of rubbish they spout.

It is your property and they will be tresspassing unless you invite them and if they want to collect your doorstep (Door Step Collection) tell them its theft. A post man has the right to come to you door because he brings you your mail.

You should also get the name of the person calling and keep a note also if you can take the reg. no. down as well.

If you don't want to speak to them give them a note through your letter box telling them to shove off.

Any letter you send to them should also include communication in writing only.

Besides the definition of the word 'Appointment' is a fixed 'Mutual' agreement for a meeting!:p

I do not like the whole Armstrong v. Sheppard template. Every letter I send to a DCA states that I will only deal with them in writing, so I can meet threats of callers with something like this:

 

I refer to your threat to send an agent to my home. I have previously told you that all communication in this matter must be in writing.

 

It appears to me that your threats are an attempt to apply psychological pressure, which is a breach of the OFT Guidance on Debt Collection. In addition, behaviour which creates an intimidating or hostile environment constitutes harassment.

 

Should you ignore the above, you should be aware that I will not speak to any caller, save to ask them to leave at once. If they fail to do so, the police will be called. Any call will also be reported to the appropriate enforcement authorities.

 

If you do not understand this letter, you should seek professional advice.

I have no legal experience and all advice given is based on the knowledge I've gained from this site.

Put a sign on your door saying your dog eats Debt Collectors.

 

I have a dog and she scares salesmen off by jumping up to the window. They take one look at her and decide to leave me alone. My dog is a 6 month old German Shepherd who is as tall as her mother right now. I think she will grow much bigger (oh good she can scare more salesmen off) and much scarier.

 

If a DCA ever came to my door i would give them 10 seconds to get off my property before i let the dog out.

I also like SP's letter above.

 

Warning about the dog is good as well.

 

Make it clear a visit would result in a call to the police if they didn't leave immediately, followed by a complaint to the OFT.

 

Or:

 

I am the proud owner of 2 machine guns and more live ammo than I know what to do with. Please send your entire staff at your earliest convenience. :lol:

Well you know that wouldn't suprise most of us.

If they are tall, good looking, rich, youngish etc., then bring them on could do with a bit of fun and pampering.

No need for weapons, just tell 'em they're welcome at any time to come and join the prayer vigil. They have to bring their own bible of course.

The dog is enough to scare anyone off. Say your dog loves to eat doorstep callers for breakfast and they are stepping onto your property at their own risk. I would go as far as to put a sign up saying that too!!

Anyone used a vidoe camera at all towards these mugs?

 

They call, you open up with a camcorder to your face recording their every movement and word, wonder how long they would stay on your doorstep?

 

Wonder how many would come up with the stupid line 'please stop filming me'

 

'YOU'RE ON MY DOORSTEP MUG, I CAN FILM YOU IF I WANT!'
