    • In a strange twist of fate he called me yesterday and agreed to refund me on the car. I am due to drop it off on Friday and hope he sticks to his word. I am still going to produce the rejection letter as a safety net in any case.   Thanks to those who have replied on this post. I will keep it updated.   Mark.
    • Hi there my husband has a Vanquis card i applied to get the ROP refunded which they shut me down on this was back in Aug 2018 on the letter they sent him telling him no they did state they would cancel the ROP with immediate effect, roll on to this week and i come across one of his statements and low an behold they are still taking it, so my question as they have still been taking it i have obviously phoned them to get it stopped and the past 2 years refunded do i use the CISheet spreadsheet to work out the interest he has been charged on these payments his statements show a 3.99% monthly which i believe is 59.93% APR can someone confirm my calculations please im a bit rusty, i also have asked them to recalculate his ROP interest refund as i heard some were wrong and i've asked them to re look at the complete refund claim as well whilst they are at it, if im reclaiming the whole lot is this again the CISheet at 59.93% as 1 £5.50 ROP charge from oct 2009 shows £876.77 interest ??   any help would be great not done this for a long time last one was bank charges lol.
    • Hi, if a terminated credit card claim has been struck out by the court, appealed and lost (ie still struck out) - is the balance therefore zero? Can a 2nd claim for the same card (terminated>6yrs ago) be presented against me for a different amount.
    • When did you pay the £20? was it before the default letter or after?  Exact date and to whom the £20 was paid is key to calculating the SB date.  It could be construed that paying £20 or any figure was an acknowledgement of the debt and could re-start the SB clock.   Important to understand the date but I concur with the other CAGers that it is probably not something to worry about.   As an aside I fought (and won) an argument with Lowells over the default date.  They were trying to assert that the Default date was later than it was but I was able to disabuse them of that idea thanks to having the original Default Letter plus also getting it confirmed by the original lender (Vanquis).  They sent me the exact same copy of the Default Notice as part of their SAR response so I say again a good idea to SAR Mint so you know where you are and you are then ready to rebuff any bullshit from the DCA.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

I notice that there was a thread back in April on these but who actualy smokes em?


I have been using e-cigs since jan and not had a "analogue" since then. My breathing and health has imrpved no end but I enjoy using my e-cig.


I currently "smoke" a titan 510 manual e-cig, I dont even have to roll the car window down now its getting cold. Im on the low nicotine content, usualy chocolate flavour!!!!!!!!!!!


As for not being tested well I can't see how normal cigs that have been tested can be safer - just look at the tar in a ciggy compared to a e-cig, to me its obvious. Yes I did worry about using them but recent clinical trials on nicotine hint that it can even be benefial in small doses???


The other main active ingredient in e-cigs has been used for years in are purifiers etc and has helped people with asthma etc alleviate their symptoms.


Well over to debate.

I picked up an Intellicig on Friday, really pleased with it and my 'normal' cigarette intake has been cut in half already.


You do feel like a bit of an idiot at first, but people are usually just curious about them.


Mine does tend to seep nicotine through the hole onto the lips or tongue which can be quite unpleasant, but overall, a really good purchase - the savings I have already made on cigarettes have paid for it in just 4 days.


The carts don't last as long as I would like though...and I am curious about these chocolate flavoured ones!

Don't throw those old carts out. Refill them with e-cig juice. The juice comes in a huge range of flavours including chocolate. Also comes in different nicotine strengths from 0mg up to 35mg. Depending on what your normal cigarette consumption was you can chose a strength that you feel comfortable with and then decrease it when you feel you're ready. Saves you a huge amount of money by using the juice instead of continually buying the carts.


Can't give a link but a general google search will bring up e-cig sellers that also have the juice. There is also a very good forum for e-cig users - well worth a read.
