    • Emmzzi - you are correct! I'd never actually done the maths like that, I think in the past (I've been there for 5 years, company going for about 9), there was only ever 8 drivers, and even now most of them don't take all their holiday entitlement each year historically anyway because of this culture of "presenteeism" and the natural replaceability of old hairy-ass drivers like ourselves. Unfortunately people like me/us are a dime a dozen to management....   Complain too much, off you pop and there are a thousand more like you to replace you, so be grateful and keep schtum.   However, I'm now starting to feel a bit aggrieved about this deliberate "taking the p**s" stance from manager.    Now there's 12 rather than 8 drivers you are quite correct Emmzzi - genuinely I hadn't seen that. Thanks. More ammunition for me. Ta 
    • you have 25 days remaining. 12 drivers x 5 weeks = 60 weeks, which is more than exist in a year.   This rule will never work.    
    • Shouldnt be able to? Are they open? We usually advise not to contact them over the phone but.... You might have too?  
    • Appreciate the opinion Ericsbrother thanks.    It's one of those situations where I can be right yet still lose out. I'll certainly get him to put his refusal in writing though.    It's also difficult because his policy is "only one driver can be off at any one time for holiday". Fair enough, I understand why. However, if that means there aren't physically enough days left in the year for all 12ish drivers to take their entitlement before year end, then it becomes problematic.   My request for last week in August has been refused because there's already a driver booked off. So, I understand insomuch. Every other darn week has now got someone off on holiday now till mid Nov!!!    I may need to force the issue with this last week in Aug. It's just a shame that things always end up this way. It's not my first rodeo with small-minded petty middle-mingers types. Shouldn't have to be this way.    
    • I suddenly got a text message from CRS just a few minutes ago saying their solicitors had issued a letter of claim.   Yet a couple of weeks ago their page said they were no longer dealing with this account. Yet suddenly it's open again and they are sending a letter of claim?   Help?   This is what it said.   I assumed that CRS were no longer dealing with this . I didn't expect to suddenly get a notification that they are sending a letter of claim.   Can they actually do this still after saying they aren't dealing with the account any more?

    • 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

I've just been looking through all the paperwork I have from homebuy regarding the tv and video dvd combo we got from them in 2006.

The credit agreement for the tv was for a company called blackfriar ltd.

Who the hell are blackfriar??? Can homebuy chase me for any possible outstanding money if the agreement wasn't made with them?

 

All do homebuy have an obligation to provide regular account statements as we don't recieve them and when i request a statement they simply say they do not do statements.

 

Please help as they are ripping us off big time and i want to know where we stand with them!!

urm, these people sound like they no longer exist and are solely DCA owned debts and they are ripping people off.

 

there are sev threads also whereby CCA have been fired off and nothing further has been heard.

 

i'd do that i think.

I've done a little research and found out that they do exist although not as they used to.

Since the other threads were started on here the company has changed twice.

The last time was a management buy out.

 

We still have the collector come once a month to empty the coin meter.

Everytime i ask for a statement and everytime he just says i need to contact the office. The office are the one's who say they do not provide account statements. Want i want to know is... are they in legally obliged to provide regular staements and what can i do if they are.

The company that own it now are called Cobco 834 Trading as Everyone can buy with homebuy!

So do this company have a legal right to persue us as the credit agreement wasnt made with them

Can you give us a few more details ben.

 

How much per week are you paying and what was the actual date you took out the finance?

Do you have the optional insurance?

we are paying £28 per month. the agreement was taken out in nov 06 at a cost of £1800 roughly. over £300 of this was for maintenance vouchers which we have never used.

hope this helps.

I've contacted homebuy this morning and requested statements. They said its not a problem but they may take a couple of weeks. So all i can do at the moment is see wether they actually send them.

This warranty, does it say what it covers?

 

Was it explained to you when you took out the agreement what it was and what it covered, or didn't they mention it?

 

We might be able to claim all the premiums back on this.

hte warranty was not really explained at all. All we were told was that we would get maintenance vouchers which we would have to use should the tv or vhs/dvd combo become faulty.

Sorry I need some info. I haven't heard of this system for donkey years and didn't know it still existed.

 

The collector comes and empties the box, does he take his £28 and give you the remainder or if there isn't enough, you make it up to £28?

 

You would only need these so called maintenance vouchers for accidental damage. Any other faults would be covered by the manufacturers warranty and soga regulation.

 

If you have household contents insurance you don't need them either as all accidental damage should be covered by that policy.

 

I think you should do as suggested by dx and request a cca (£1) or better still a sar (£10).

If they fail to send it to you within 12 days, the agreement is in dispute and you can stop paying.

 

When you get the information, you should be in a position to claim back for all these maint vouchers.

I will be sending a cca request this week.

Whats happens next then?

Just so you know, I have requested full statements for the account (on monday) which i am still waiting for!!!

It means that any damage is aready covered by your own policy so you have been mis-sold this insurance they call 'maintenance vouchers'.

 

If they fail to send it to you within 12 days, the agreement is in dispute and you can stop paying.

Whats happens next then?

 

They cannot legally chase you for any outstanding amount until they do send you the agreement.

This will give you time, if possible, to work out how much you have paid in rental purchase and how much in insurance. Do you think you can do that?

 

Just so you know, I have requested full statements for the account (on monday) which i am still waiting for!!!

 

If you don't get what you want, the next time the man calls, tell him that this is all one-sided and that you are sorry but you cannot allow him entry until you get your statements.

 

Does he not mark a book or collection card each time he visits?

I have had a look at the credit agreement and the maintenance vouchers are on their as being £315. This is plus the intrest at 60 odd %.

 

The collector gives us a printout of how much is owed that month and how much he has taken.

 

Other than that he (allegedly) has no idea how much is owed on the account.

 

I've heard of 'extortionate credit bargain' would this be a route worth considering??

Hi guys,

Recieved statements from homebuy this morning. Haven't seen them for myself yet but my partners had a look at them. She says they are a complete mess.

Would it be ok to post them on here for you guys to have a look at and see if you can make sense of them? (i'll remove any identifying info).

Can ANYONE help with this as the collector has visited today (2 weeks after the last visit). Stating that there wasn't enough in the meter last time and that she needed tocollect the contents today.

I wasnt home but my oh was.

The collector stated that she will call again in 2 weeks to collect a months payment (there won't be a months payment in the meter as she emptied it today!!!!!)

We're getting desperate now and p*ssed off that they think they can bully my OH into letting them in the house.:mad:

The agreement is still a bit hard to read, but as far as I can make out, you took out the agreement in July 2005. So now it's July 2009, that makes it 4 year which is 208 weeks.

 

Your agreement says payment over 165 weeks which is just over 3 years.

 

If you have stuck to the agreement and not gone in arrears, then you have overpaid.

 

Do as I told you earlier, make no more payments until you receive a full statement of accounts.

You are entitled to this, so demand it.

 

Make you oh aware that he 'must not' let the collector into the house again unless you are there.

 

Do you have an address for the company receiving the payments?

If not, then get it from the collector, he must be passing the money he collects to someone.
