    • there's no rule of thumb but rarely do you see lowells drop a claim until after the disclosures stage it just really depends upon what 'cards' they hold like enforceable agreement, DN, NOA etc etc however due to andyorch's excellent help - we see most discontinued...   one thing that also plays a part is when the card was taken out too. yours was taken out?   these will give you a good benchmark and also help with defence and after process   https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=partner-pub-8889411648654839:3134625398&q=lowell claimform vanquis won discontinued&oq=lowell claimform vanquis won discontinued&gs_l=partner-generic.12...166572.185174.0.188553.
    • On Monday the 27th of July 2020, i signed up with Anglian windows to work as a canvasser over in East London, the interview went well. I started working and had to use a app on the phone to make appointments. The deal was if i got a lead on the door and the salesman went round to the customer and and priced it i would get paid for it.  I started working the following week, i made leads, but i had problems with the app not working as well as it should, the app would give me results on my leads.  Long story but they where working some leads and forgetting to work other leads and not up dating the app, so i did not know my results. My wages where wrong and i decided i could not work for the company. I gave them over 20 leads and was only paid for 3.  I told them i was leaving, that was fine, they said they would work my leads and pay me, they even sent me a text message to say one of my leads has been priced and i would get paid for it.  No money was paid, i have sent messages to the regional manager and no answer, in the end i started emailing head office and they said they would look into it but i am getting nowhere.    What can i do.
    • Do try and keep up It was quite clear I was referencing any lingering hopes you may hold of rejoining the wretched institution
    • thanks, will do   after reading a lot of the other posts like you said to, is it a good defence statement that makes them think about dropping it?

    • 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!

oh well feel like crying or screaming at moment, did as bavy, advised and phoned the citizens advice bureau, she told me in not to good english, that i would have to phone the company i have had the money of, ( felt like she judging and my own fault for being stupid, alright maybe!) she told me to read the paper work propably myself and then i would no what options if any i had!

asked nicely, if could have an appointment to talk to someone face to face rather than over the phone, and she said no! they couldnt do anything as they didnt know how the bank, or whoever give me the loan worked so i would have to phone the people i have had the money of and talk to them!!

is it me being selfish or stupid and thinking that they were there to help!!????

she made me feel like tough you got yourself in it, you had the money, now sort it yourself!!!

Hmm, not very helpful at all :(. I know it's difficult, but try to hang on there until Postggi (or someone else) has had a look. I dearly wish I could help but I'm still learning myself :)


The CAB aren't very knowledgeable on CCA's, from what I can gather, so that's probably why you got the response you did!

There is also the option of requesting your CCA from them, as it is a loan agreement, not HP. This costs £1, send by recorded delivery, use a postal order. If they do not send a true copy of the original documents, then the account will be in dispute and you can stop paying.


However from what I've read it will have an impact on your credit history. If you would like to go down this route I will find a copy of the letter for you to send.


You may still be able to claim back the PPI if mis-sold, someone else will tell you if you can.

hi maggie,

thanks for your reply, just to know someone else cares:-))):)

i have a brilliant credit history, never miss payments etc, i have another loan and credit cards, and have paid other loans and always paid my bills, and this is one reason why i want to see what options i have rather than just stop paying and let them take me to court.. But i am really finding it a struggle at the moment, and when i keep going over the fact that we went in for a 7000 car on 0% interest at 120 odd pound a month, and come out owing over 10 grand and paying 1600 just for insurance and 175 a month i just cant believe we were so stupid!! and that women at the cab has just made me feel 100 times worse, but it was nice to get a reply from you, you in the wrong job should be in the cab!!:-)))):(:Cry:

wouldn't mind but straight up was thinking of volunteering for the one near by, but that's who i phoned so think better not!!! was nearly gonna phone back and have a word with manager, but to wound up at the moment, so might not be able to hold tongue!! :mad:

anyway thanks xx:)

hi bavy,

thanks for them few ideas, will have a good look later, i did actually asked for a settlement amount in feb 09 (just to see what i owed) and it was 6847.71.

not to good at maths! but may i ask you quick question? i noticed on the document it says after 1/4 term you would have a settlement of 6528.54 would i have done that term. Got the car Feb 07?

mind you even then i would be 2500 owing if i sold the car for 4000! there would be no way i could find that so would be stuck anyway!!

don't look as if got many options without losing lot of money! or owing!


Yeah unfortunately your options don't look too great :(


I can't believe the attitude of the CAB woman, I would still give National Debtline (National Debtline – Free, Confidential Debt Advice – Call 0808 808 4000) they might throw up an idea we haven't thought of.


Regarding how far through your payments? I make it that you have made 19 of 60 payments so far so around 1/3rd of the way through.

hi maggie

had quick oook in the forum, but most of them seemed to be for credit cards? and i am not actually sure what ppi is, i dont think i have that insurance mine is asset protection insurance, what ever that is! think it means that if my car is written of of stolen, and it is not seen as worth as much as the rest of the loan i owe then they will pay the difference, but i could be wrong on that one?!!

what actually is a -ppi? if you dont mind me asking! may sound a bit thick but brain not working at all today! stressful day and then stressful night in work:-))) jsut chilling now

and once again thanks for everything

Hi Angeleyes :)


You might want to send Postggj a Private Message to ask him to have a look at your documents. To do this look near the top of the page to Usercp and click, you will be able to send him one there. Hope this helps. Give me a shout if you get stuck.


Btw it's in West Yorks, not Scotland :)

hi Postggj and Maggie moo and everyone,

sorry not been on for few days, but been working nights and not to good.

i think i have now give the insurance plenty of time to change address and send any details of our insurance out to us, so i will need to send them a letter with a subject access request, i am not to good at writing letters, so can anyone give me some advice if not to busy:-)) Will i need to write any letters to fiat, to see what options if any i have over the car? Need to get something sorted soon, so any advice as what to put in letters would be gratefully appreciated, many thanks for all you've done so far all of u xxx

Hi Angeleyes :)


Have a look here




It's a template of the letter you need to send, send by postal order £10 and remember they have 40 days to comply with your request. Hope this helps.
