Consumer protection from Unfair Trading regulations 2008

3.4 A commercial practice is unfair if:

• it is not professionally diligent, and

• it materially distorts, or is likely to materially distort,

the economic behaviour of the average consumer.

Essentially, for the general prohibition to apply, the trader’s

practice must be unacceptable when measured against an

objective standard and must also have (or be likely to have) an

effect on the economic behaviour of the average consumer.

The second condition is likely to be met if, for example,

because of the practice, the average consumer would buy a

product they would not otherwise have bought, or would not

exercise cancellation rights when otherwise they would have

done so.

 

Without the enticement of a job ,and the information that was left out Re MCSE 18month experience needed, and the statement of the limited places available to encourage me to sign a document then I think it amounts to Unfair Trading Practices.of which BPF are jointly and severally liable, as it was a link loan and Advent breached the contract therefore leaving BPF holding the monster they created.

Hey guys has anyone seen this? I found it on the Facebook site Advent training scammed us - photo no. 5 if the link doesn't work. Seems pretty clearcut to me assuming the company writing it is genuine (Boy am I getting suspicious these days!)

Recieved this e-mail last night.

 

8th April 2010

Dear ,

 

Thank you for taking the time to verify your contact details. These have now been transferred to our student records system in readiness for the start of your training with us.

 

During the contact detail verification process you may have requested contact from us regarding your contract start and end date. We are in the process of contacting all students who raised questions about their contract dates. Please do bear with us. We will be in touch with you by email on this subject in the next day or so.

 

In the meantime, the next step of the process is to verify the course and current module details that we have for you.

 

Please follow this link to verify your course details: Student Verification

 

Alternativily, you can visit http://verify.computeach.co.uk and login using the following details:

 

Your User ID:

Your Password:

 

You will then be presented with a screen that contains the last details recorded on the Advent system. These will be your course number and name, a description of the content of the course and then the module that you are currently studying.

 

This information was taken from the Advent computer systems at the time that the company went into administration. If you believe that any of it is incorrect then you can tell us by removing the ticks next to the relevant piece of information.

 

You still need to click on the verification button even if you have indicated that some or all of the information is incorrect.

 

If any of your details are incorrect then we will contact you over the next week or so to discuss what you believe you should be studying or where you believe you currently are. If you have continued to study during the last 2 months and you have completed any exams during this time then please be prepared to provide score reports or transcript access codes for us to verify your exam pass and move you on to the next module.

 

If your details are correct then within 2 working days we will send you a welcome email with login instructions for our student web site and within a further 2 working days, you will be able to access your new online eLearning to support the module you’re currently studying.

 

We are still awaiting archive paper files and access to all of the archived email communications that you may have had previously with Advent. If you have indicated that there are issues with either your contract dates or the details of your course then we will be in touch as soon as we can to discuss this with you. We would ask for your continued patience during the remainder of the integration project. I’m sure you can appreciate that you may be one of a large number of people who want to talk to us about your training contract and we will do our best to get to you as quickly as we can.

 

We are very keen to get you up and running as soon as possible so we would encourage you to verify your course details (correct or incorrect) as soon as you can so that we can get you started.

 

Yours sincerely,

Computeach International Limited

lets bring them down.i will go to jail for not paying rather than pay them.thats how i am thinking,lets hope it wont come to that.

 

You wont get the chance to go to jail..

Sorry but what they normally do is send in the bailiffs and they clean your house out.. and your car until they have the money you owe.. and they wont care if you are sitting on the floor without a carpet even.

 

Last year my city council changed not only the way I pay my council tax but the date of payment and they did not send me a bill so had no information about it...

I was 7 days from the bailiffs coming to my house to get the whole years worth of council tax plus their cut.

I fought em off for 5 months... in the end it was sorted, but my blood pressure had gone through the roof.. not good when I had also just been made redundant :mad:

I wish this helped with my case... I have been following you guys and glad you're getting somewhere close to closure. I suspect I will have to get independant legal advice as I am in a different boat to you guys. All the best though :-)

so even PKF say we can cancel :)

http://www.pkf.co.uk/web/pkf.nsf/54A4A9BF581FA01A802576F8003AB42A/$file/Student+FAQs+-+Sale+of+Advent+to+Computeach.PDF

 

7. What if I don’t want to continue my training - how do I get my money back?

Clearly, any student is entitled to cancel their training at any time. However, how you paid for you course

fees will ultimately determine your right to recover monies previously paid.

Given the number of students that were in active training with Advent prior to its demise, we are not able

to provide specific advice on individual circumstances.

 

 CCPP and CCUF Students who are seeking to recover monies previously paid should contact their credit card provider.

 

 BPF Students seeking to recover monies previously paid and/or to discuss any outstanding finance balances should contact Barclays Partner Finance.

I'm due to start making payments on the 16th April 2010.

 

Can anyone advise how to approach barclays in means of a letter to keep the payments delayed?

 

Should i just keep the direct debit cancelled and let them put charges on the account?

 

I will not be paying them, I'm looking for the best way to go about it.

 

Thanks

I'm not a fan of Facebook (had an account once and deleted it) but I did join again just to post there...but one of our members here has beaten me to it! Thanks Gareth and Nathan for the support there, the more we get this about the better it will be as the more weight we carry and the publicity this will arouse in the press.
