    • Ok thanks. I'll stop worrying about DCAs if thats the procedure. Thanks again for all your advice.
    • Loads of fake Capquest Email and Text scams going around at the moment. 
    • Breakdown cover Hi, I presume like many that when it was decided to go with then 'A shadegreener' that I would receive a 24hr call out, just like British Gas! No more worries, they would deal with any issues. This is far, far from the truth.My boiler locked out, I reset it, it locked out again & again. So I phoned ASG Ltd on Saturday, then twice on Sunday, then twice again today. My boiler has been out of service since Saturday, with the F4, flame fail fault, which Weissman don't recommend resetting to many times. Despite calling and leaving messages on their answer service no one called me back. When challenged, guess what they, stated they have no record of my calls, this is despite me having a call log on my phone showing times of the calls and duration of said calls. So their lying, not the first time either. When I call back this morning, they said they would speak to Weissman and get me an engineer out,urgently ,bearing in mind I'm a Cancer patient and I've had no heating or hot water since Saturday! You might know, no call was received telling me when I would be getting a repair, so I rang ASG Ltd back and I was told that should ring Weissman... Just what am I paying a service contract for? So I called Weissman, they promised me a call back, never happened. I did however receive an Email saying I won't now get a call until tomorrow. I believe that the service being paid for isn't fit for purpose and has been missold. I had a British Gas service policy and it couldn't be faulted. 24hr, 365 day same day service and if no fault found, no charges were made, unlike ASG Ltd. Who expect the homeowner to be a heating engineer, diagnosing what wrong when a fault appears and if you get it wrong, your fined £150 for the mistake. Absolutely unreasonable and unjustified. I would love to know your experience with the breakdowns and call-outs you've experienced. I'm considering taken legal action, because the service being paid for isn't fit for purpose and missold as I have previously stated. The more ammunition I have, will make the legal action more formidable. I look forward to hearing from you.
    • It could also a recycled number issue, how long have you had that number?  If recently the number could have belonged to someone else who owed money sometime in the past and it was their contact number.  Was given a new work phone once, and the first call I had  on itwas from Rossendales bailiffs after someone for  Council tax debt.
    • I think they are trying to persuade the judge there have been a number of supreme court decisions which override a lot of the regulations we rely on here, they even say I rely on "out-dated legislation".   Their next main approach is to say the claim is statute barred and that I need to prove that I didn't know about this 6 years ago. My argument is that I couldn't have known since they concealed the statements from me until November 2020. After a GDPR request in 2018 they claimed for 2 years that they didn't have the statements over and over again. They finally produced them when I went to the courts. It was only at this stage that I saw I had the charges on the accounts. Since they repeatedly didn't give me the statements I would propose Kleinworth Benson is reinforced, as they may have tried to conceal the charges.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I went to a car dealer on Saturday and looked at a car. I then spoke to the finance manager who said he would check to see if I could get it on finance which he said I could. I then done the forms and that was that. He informed me i could cancel within 14 days if i so wished but never gave me a copy of the credit agreement. I then decided not to go with the car so on the Tuesday and sent them an email saying I did not want it. Today Thursday I got a call from the dealer asking me when I was coming to collect the car I informed them of my email they said they didn't get it. I then told them over the phone that I didn't want it and put me trough to the finance manager who then said I could not cancel when I then reminded him of what he had told me on Saturday. He said he would ring me back as he needed to do something. He didn't call me back I spoke to a solicitor who said I should be able to cancel within 5 working days as it was not signed at the finance companies office.

 

Can anyone offer any advice?

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

i didn't pay any deposit and the guy did tell me that i had 14 days to cancel. no credit agreement was given to me showing the terms and conditions so they are already in breach of the consumer credit act 1974

In order for a credit agreement to be legally executed, Both yourself and the Underwriters of the finance company need to both sign the agreement, So if you signed it on the Saturday and the underwriters didn't sign it until the Monday then on Saturday and Sunday would be the days that the credit agreement would not be legally enforceable. Keep a copy of your emai which you sent to them as this provides the date that you requested to cancel the agreement.

Hi, I am a Finance Manager for a large car dealership. As an above post stated, you have fourteen days to cancel the agreement if it was not signed on trade property. As you signed in the dealership I am afraid you cannot. However, again as someone has stated if you treid to cancel before the deal was executed then you have a right. Did the finance manager give you a copy of the Pre contract and all subsequent documents at the time of sign up? Did you purchase any insurance products, ie gap, ppp ect as these products do have a 14 day cancellation period. Which finance company have you signed with?

Well if we are being pedantic, PPI is cancellable throughout the term of the loan if monthly premium payable.

 

The point i was trying to make is that maybe the poster got wires crossed in respect of the cancellation period. The finance manager may have said you have 14 days to cancel insurance products ect and customer then thought this included the finance agreement.

 

Anyway, if the original poster can let me have the above info i will double check for them.

not being picky

 

most of the insurance crap is front loaded

 

ive yet to come upon a car finance agreement with monthly payments for the insurance crap

On a HP agreement it has to be shown seperately, so the customer knows exactly what they are paying for. Ie if the total monthly payment is £200 per month and included in that is gap insurance of £15.00 per month it has to be shown

 

Car insurance/warranty

 

On a personal loan document they dont need to split them up (This is car finance only) just incase someone comes along and tries to shoot me down.

they do if ppi etc is added

 

On a HP agreement it must be broke down for the customer so they can see how much the car is costing per month, how much the insurance is per month and then a total montly premium. To be honest though some dealers may not follow the rules as they should

 

 

that should also be provided in the statement of price
