    • 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!

Hi all,


hope you can help me.


just over a month ago, i went to visit my grandfather. parked my car in a parking bay outside his flat block. as its a permit only area i wrote out a note saying i was collecting the permit and will be back soon.


so i went upstairs to his flat, to collect the permit from him, i returned in possibly 10-12 minutes to find a parking ticket and a clamp. so i called the number on the ticket 0906 number! (£1.50 per minute) to expain, i was greeted by a very rude abrubt man who told me i was lieing, they had clamped several cars since i had been there (lie, there was one other car that was already clamped when i arrived).


so i was forced to go to the cash point, and pay the £200 to get the clamp released. I was left waiting for almost 3 hours for the person to come and remove the clamp! he told me he was contracted by the company and i should definately appeal.



so i wrote to the company (not sure if i can mention their name??) explaining i left the car for circa 10 mins, left a note on the dash, went to the 4th floor to get the permit from my 83 year old grandfather etc.


They insist you appeal to them within 14 days (which i did), they insist on a self addressed stamped envelope (otherwise they simply wont reply), which i did and they say they will reply within 14 days.


14 days went by, no reply, so i called up, complined it was almost 3 weeks. to be told that it states they will reply AFTER 14 days. so i read the printed photo copy to her, to be told 'sorry, that must be a misprint'!!


2 days later i get a letter back saying;


Re: clamping of vehicle on private property


in relation to the above matter we acknowedge receipt of your appeal letter and the contents have been noted.


There are warning signs situated on that site that state 'Warning, Private property, 24 hour wheel clamping and ticketing area. (company name) authorised permits must be displayed in the windscreen of the vehicle, failure to comply will result in the vehicle being clamped, ticketed and towed without any notice given.


As there was no valid permit or disabled badge being clearly displayed in the windscreen of the vehicle, (having checked photographs of when the vehicle was clamped) as clearly stated on the warning signs, the vehicle was clamped and fined.


The responsibily to observe and obey parking restrictions is yours and we operated correctly in this instance due to the vehicle being incorrctly parked, we shall not be refunding the release fee on this occasion.


We will not be entering into any more communication regarding this matter, should you be unhappy with this decision please seek legal advice.

Is there anything i can do??

did you see the signs? are they clearly displayed?


Don't bother appealing to them again, you wouldn't win in a million years! They have your cash and think you will just go away!

You will have to sue them for the money back, and make sure you include the landowner as a co-defendant. If you win (which hopefully you should but civil county court claims can be unpredicable) then the chances of getting monet off the PPC are still just above nil, but the landowner is a much easier target.
