    • Thank you very much for your reply!    I definitely put the value when I purchased the insurance. I unfortunately can't remember if I stated what the item was but it would make sense that it would also request this information. (I used the oh-so-convenient ..tsk.. little machine in the shop that you just enter all the details into and it prints it out for you). I will research as to whether that was something I indeed needed to enter; if I did I certainly would have put guitar.    I have photos of the guitar before posting but no pictures of it wrapped up unfortunately, as it didn't occur to me I'd need to do that (with being new to selling online and it being the first time I'd posted anything of value... Sigh!!)    I do have the buyer's message stating there were signs of rough handling to the package however.    The damage is to one of the dials (completely smashed) and a crack down the neck.    I'm new to this site and I've been trying to use the search function to find other hermes related posts but it only brings up results for lost claims not damaged (when I try to move forward through the results it doesn't seem to let me but I'll keep trying!) 
    • just add sorry it not on my statement not on anything like that but it been used block my new application by student loans even though it been sold.  I had no idea to be honest at all it even existed as i still had slc finance and that showed as okay.  Now i am more worried about the university try charge me 2250 pounds for being two days over the deadline, as soon as I was reject i withdrew from the course as I did quick research and noticed it be long process to even try and overturn decision.  My tutor will sign me off on the deadline hopefully just the lady in credit control was saying does not matter two days over has me worried.

    • 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.

    • 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!

Hello everybody :)

 

Barclaycard have sent me back my CCA request within it's timelimit containing a previous address to the one I was living at the time of application which was in summer 2006.

 

(I did make a declined application from the previous address they've used in late 2004 / early 2005).

 

I've just sent them a letter of dispute - I'm thinking though ought I have got them to confirm in writing that that is correct as far as they're concerned or is it too late now?

 

I'd scan the CCA they sent but scanner is out of action :rolleyes:

 

Also if this went to court am I correct in thinking that it's unenforceable or could they simply re-produce it with the correct address? Bit worried.

 

Really appreciate any input please...

Hmm you would need to show that the application is clearly not the application/agreement (if it contains prescribed terms) for the current card, if there is a pre-printed card number on it like some applications that'll do :-D

 

You could try taking a digital pic of the agreement and posting that up?

Hi

 

I've looked over it again and there is no pre-printed card number on it anywhere or anything tying it to the current card...

 

Will get images uploaded asap to let you judge.

Ok well the address and the date of application should suffice to show not the correct CCA... might be worth checking your credit file and getting a screen shot of when the account shows as opened.. Barclays have direct edit access to their credit data

Can I ask what is 'direct edit access'?

 

They can directly edit the information they have previously provided the credit reference agencies about accounts without asking the credit ref agencies to do it. At the very least..... they have that agreement with Experian in place.

OK - is this anything potentially underhand that I need to be concerned about?

 

No the whole point of me stating that was just to get a screenshot of when the account was opened to back up your argument that this is not the correct agreement they have sent you.. I was just saying they have edit access and potentially could if they so want change a year on a record to read earlier or later than actually is correct, I'm sure they never would do such a thing tho.

With regards to having sent off the dispute letter already what do you think?

 

If they havent supplied the correct CCA then yep a account in dispute letter was called for... only difference in your case is you could have put failure to provide "correct" cca if you had wanted.

So what should my next move be apart from checking the credit files? (apologies for all the questions )

 

S

 

Nothing until they respond to the account in dispute letter.

Just to update:

 

Screenshot from credit ref agency confirms that they used wrong address and I've printed this.

 

They since wrote adamant that they have complied under Section 60 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 stating that any further correspondance sent by me

"Questioning compliance with these areas of law, we are not obliged to respond beyond the statutory response we have already given you. We would require you to provide comprehensive legal and documentary evidence to support your claim to ascertain whether response is necessary."

 

So where do I go from here?

 

Calder Financial have since surfaced who are on the small print at the bottom of their letter Mercers Debt Collectors Ltd trading as Calder Financial... (nicer graphics though :rolleyes:)

 

I've done up the breach of Dispute status to Calders - should I send it to them or get into further correspondance with Barclaycard if anybody has any ideas on how best to proceed please.

 

Any input is really appreciated :)

You should always write to whoever is chasing...

 

The "bemused why this account has been passed as in dispute with xxxx" should be sent to Calders imo.

 

Yes its clear they are all the same company but why not play along with their little games for a while longer :-)

Hi this has unfortunately re-surfaced - since being with Calder it's been passed to another DCA to whom a letter of CCA breach was sent, then onto a firm of Solicitors who didn't produce a CCA on request (returned the CCA fee within days via the DCA). That DCA has since continued in it's collection efforts as recently as last month despite having been warned that they were in breach last year. It's now been passed to Apex Credit Management who've now declared there intent to commence formal proceedings on the client's behalf.

 

Just to clarify how should I proceed - do I CCA these too or go straight to the 'bemused as to why you are contacting me...' account in dispute letter or do I simply spell it out for them that not only is the CCA Barclaycard produced not only completely incorrect but alludes to a declined application for the address they attribute it to?

 

I took the precaution of getting & printing a copy of my credit file which bears out that the CCA thus far supplied is incorrect. Could they use their 'Edit' priviliges with the Credit Ref Agencies to 'correct' their error if I were to point out to them exactly why I continue to dispute this?

 

Altogether confusing but I really do need some help please.

Hi Cerberusalert thanks for the speedy response - just the generic 'Bemused' letter do you mean & not interlace it with any further reason for the continuing dispute?

Yes just the basic, keep your powder dry and don't offer any information as to why you are disputing it.

Hi well they seem to have completely ignored receiving the bemused letter and have instead churned out a letter a week later advising me of 'Home visit agent instructed'

 

Ought I simply resend them a copy of the bemused letter by special delivery or what should my next move be?

 

How likely are they to turn up on the doorstep?

 

Any advice very much appreciated :eek:
