    • Thanks for your reply, yes they got the items back undamaged.    The police got of to sign the recorded warning but the man in tesco didn't have me sign anything, he just took my name and address,  didn't ask any other questions or say anything about a "fine"   Was just a one off.  I had just lost and buried my 21 year old nephew.  So really wasn't in right frame of mind. Deffo wont be doing that again.  Nearly 30, with a clean record up till now so was a big shock for some stupid items that I had the money to actually pay for.     I'm currently in the processes of being refereed to a therapist. To try and help.    I'll make sure that I update this if I recieve any more letters from them and I'll make sure to keep them. 
    • As you are not out of pocket, I think I would do nothing about the breach of data protection regulations – but simply store it up so that if they come back at you, then you can raise the issue and challenge them. Did you get any information about inspections et cetera? You received a response to one SAR. What did that produce?
    • I'm assuming that the supermarket receive their goods back undamaged. Probably a mistake to shred the letter because you should keep a paper trail of everything – but yes you should ignore it but if anything else arrives then let us know and don't destroy it. Particularly because the police have already been involved, I don't think you have anything else to fear. Presumably they got you to sign something? Obviously you have made a bad judgement call by shoplifting from this supermarket or anywhere else. I don't know if it was a one-off but hopefully you have now had a bit of a shock and maybe it will make you think more carefully about this kind of thing. I think that you want to share this information with somebody – and maybe you should go and see your GP and tell them about it. Also, if you have any trustworthy members of your family then maybe you should let them know what you have done and unburdening yourself is going to be therapeutic – and also may be they will be able to talk to you in a way which will be helpful. Please keep us informed if you hear anything more from DWF
    • so... I am back again     quick recap: I rented a van using Hertz; the clutch burned out after only 6 miles; Hertz tried to get £850 from my c/c (thankfully I used a virtual one); a debt agency sent me a letter asking to pay £1000+ that ignored.   30 days ago I requested an SAR to Hertz and, so far, I have not received anything (no via post nor via email). As far as I know they are obliged to fulfill my request and I don't want to send them a reminder. Can i open a complaint to the ICO? do you advice me to to that or should I wait more time?   Thanks,   L.
    • Here is the list of letters with dates & amounts. Hope it all makes sense;   1) Email Invoice 26/03/2019 - $14,725.00   2) Pre Protocol Letter 19/06/20 - £9426.41. the GBP rate in the letter is £1 = $1.667AUD so this amount is $15,713.83   3) Deed of Assignment 21/07/20 - $14,725.00   4) Claim Form 11/09/20 - Particulars Claim £8,046.45 <--- this says by deed of assignment. If I use the rate stated in the letter pre protocol £1= £1.667AUD this = $13,413.43 This bit states daily Interest rate up to the date of judgement or earlier payment at a daily rate of £1.76.   At the bottom of the page there is a box with the following: Amount Claimed - £8988.21(if I change that to the AUS Dollar using the rate stated £1 = $1.667AUD the amount would be $14,983.34).   Court Fee - £410 Total Amount - £9398.21   Hope

    • 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!

Have you looked on Acers own website for driver downloads?

Any typos spelling mistakes are due to leprechauns in my keyboard they move the letters around sometimes (amended just for Bookie)

Okay I've found two updated drivers, but I need to know which one you have already, if you can find a logo in your taskbar (bottom right of windows bar) that maybe changes colour (looks like a touchpad actually), put your mouse cursor over it and some text should be displayed on it, it will either read "Synaptics Pointing Device" or "ALPS Pointing Device".

 

Once you know this, I can get a link for the updated drivers for you and give you info on how to install.

Okay, click Start and in the search box type "dxdiag" and hit enter.

A window will come up with a Yes or No option, click Yes and a large window will then open with a lot of information on it, in the center of this box it will have "Current Date/Time: 06th October 2009...."

"Computer Name"

and "Operating System: Windows Vista..."

 

Inform me of what it says in the Opertaing System part and I can send you the link to download.

Well, as long as your TV has a HDMI port on it, just plug it in and it should carry the sound over too, no need for a second audio input, but you may have to configure your laptop and TV to enable the sound via HDMI.

 

Okay, I have the download link and instructions, I'll PM them to you very shortly.

oo okay...is the enabling ofsound a long process..because i could gt the hdmi and then maybe ask for help or you could tell me now if it not too long to say?I have a flat screen tv so i assume it has a hdmi cable...but it is not hd? is that completely irrelevant?...lol

It must be a HDMI enabled TV, if it is it will have "HD Ready" written somewhere on the front of the TV itself, if you see a sticker with it on or anything like that, then it should work just fine.

 

SOME TV's don't need any more setup than just plugging in the cable, Samsung & Sony TV's are pretty good for "self setup", they detect what is plugged into them, and adjust settings automatically. So you may get lucky! ;)
