    • I requested to Lloyds to check if increase of my ovedraft was done  correctly as I had already bad credit score and if they checked my affordibility then. There's a investigation going on.  I've requested that over the phone when I informed them that I'm no longer able to pay overdraft fees. Do you think that should be done in writing? I. got ref number for the investigation but that's all. Please advise
    • Looks good to me!   Just a couple of things.  I note you've moved, crooks like Smart are quite capable of sending court papers to your old address to try to win by default.  Therefore after "noted its contents." I would add "Your clients originally wrote to me at XXXXX but my new address is XXXXX".   At the bottom add "COPIED TO SMART PARKING" and invest in a second second class stamp.  This is because unscrupulous solicitors love it if court cases start, even if their clients' case is pants - after all its quids in for them.  Let Smart know they are risking a hit in the wallet.  In the case of the link you provided Smart wet themselves and gave in.  Get free Certificates of Posting from the post office. 
    • well you could go down the covid route and ask for a payment break etc etc but thats really only delaying the inevitable. but if you did that would only p'haps be worthy to lloyds when ws this A/C opened and has the allowed OD amount slowly crept up when they've given more and more to you?   as for everything else..you seem to have my ideas correct.   i've moved your thread to the debt self help forum. there are numerous like threads here to read.   dx

    • 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!

Ah ok-understand.

 

My understanding was that the Vodafone webteam would actively seek to try to sort out issues,as per their statement in the stickies.

I will contact them myself to alert them to recent posts in this forum,in which there appears to be concerns over any response being given.

I Have managed to obtain their customer care email address for complaints.

customer.care@vodafone.co.uk

 

From my experience Vodafone is the worst Network, the amount of problems i have had, and the number of times i have logged it with them, even though they have lied to me many times that it will be resolved, and my handset will be replaced as it is within 28days, is beyond a joke, I will be writing to voda, and will want some form of action to be taken.

 

As Voda customer service is the worst; Its service from Hell.

 

Thank You for your help Martin

Thank You Martin

 

My issue has been on going for two weeks, i have been constantly contacting vodafone due to my handset being faulty; and wanting an exchange; all i have been getting is idiots cutting the phone, keeping me on hold for lengthy periods then eventually never returning and cutting me of again, I have stayed home, booked holidays from work on numerous ocassions as i was told i would get the handset delivered and the old one would be picked up. Which has been a lie, i have literally been calling Voda everyday wasting my money as my Voda HTC doesn't work. I have even been on the phone 5 hours in one go being transferred from department to department, put on hold, cut off, calling back again, advisers refusing to do anything for me, arguing with me. and refused to allow me to speak to a manager.

I have lost count of the amount of times i have called and been told the handset would be delivered to me.

I am at loss here not Voda, I will be taking this complaint further as Vodafone has pushed it too far with me.

 

Thank You Once again Martin, Your help much appreciated.

Hi

 

Whats the next step of complaints procedure; because I Contacted Voda via their website on the 5th Sept and Its the 12th Today i Still haven't heard anything, This is how Bad Voda's Service Is, Over The Phone Is the Worst But contact via Website is ignored.

 

Utterly Rubbish.

 

Im Going to be taking this further as they are taking advantage of me remaining silent about the matter.

 

Please advise what my next steps should be.

 

Thank You

This should be useful.

This section of our Code of Practice sets out how to make a complaint and your rights to refer a dispute to an independent ombudsman.

If you’re not happy with our service and would like to make a complaint, please contact us first by calling 191 from your mobile, and one of our advisors will try to sort out the problem. Calls are free from a pay-monthly phone, or 25 pence per minute from a Pay as you go phone (this price is correct at the time of going to print). Or, you can call us from a landline on 08700 700 191 for contract customers, 08700 776 655 for Pay as you go customers – the call charge will be at the operator’s standard rate. You can write to us at:

Vodafone Ltd

Correspondence Management

Post Room, Balliol House

Banbury

Oxon OX17 3NS

You can also e-mail us from the website at www.vodafone.co.uk/contact.

If you’d like to talk to us face to face, you can visit any of our stores.

If you are still not satisfied, we’ll refer you to our team manager or customer services manager. Remember, if you use a service provider, you should contact them first.

If after eight weeks we still can’t sort the problem out for you, or if we have written to you explaining that we have reached deadlock, you can then refer the issue to Otelo (the ombudsman service) for independent resolution. They will provide a free, independent service to investigate your complaint, provided it falls within their terms of reference, though you must have gone through our own complaints procedure first before they can help you.

You can find out more on their website at www.otelo.org.uk or e-mail them at

enquiries@otelo.org.uk

or, you can write to them at:

Otelo

P O Box 730

Warrington WA4 6HL

Phone: 01925 430049 or 0845 050 1614

Fax: 01925 430059

Alternatively, your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or trading standards office may be able to help – please contact them direct.

 

My advise is to write to them, tell them exactly what you want for your complaint to be resolved to your satisfaction, and ask for a DEADLOCK letter if they cannot provide this so you can escalate the complaint to Otelo (an independent arbitrator, who's decision is binding to Vodafone)

If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)

 

Or send a cheque or postal order payable to Reclaim the Right Ltd.

Hi Ms-Unknown,

 

I'm afraid I've not received an email alerting me to the thread but not to worry I'm here now and am keen to help you out.

 

If you could use the 'Contact us' form on our website as mentioned in the pinned thread Martin has previously linked you to and state the code WRT135 both in the body of your email and the subject line this will ensure that it gets to the Web Relations Team.

 

As you've encountered problems with the form previously it may be worth drafting your email including a link to this thread and then pasting it into the text field.

 

Let me know as soon as you've sent it so that I can keep a look out for it.

 

Thanks,

 

Lee

Hi

 

Back on the 6th September 09, When i contacted you again via your website, you emailed me a confirmation stating you had received my complaint, i was emailed a reference number, so I'm afraid Vodafone doesn't really have an argument to stand on especially, when making promises to be contacted way earlier, considering its the 17/09/09, this is the first response I have had from Vodafone,

My complaint reference, emailed to me on the 06/09/09: Complaint [#1091066]

 

Thank You

Hi Ms-Unknown,

 

I think I located your details and left you a voicemail message on Friday.

 

As your latest post of from Saturday I'm wondering whether I have or not. As such, would you be able to send me PM confirming the email address from which you emailed us before so that I can double check this?

 

Thanks,

 

Lee
