    • This was why I was rejected the full amount:  
    • I haven't sent them anything, is there a way to retract this? (in relation to me adding more info)   I am also unable to upload the PDF as I do not have a way to redact any personal information, however the defendants are as follows:  
    • Its just come to my attention that a friend has been getting pressure from a company called ACT credit management. They are collecting a debt on behalf of a service provider.  My friend has been pressured to pay far more than they can afford and I've suggested that they request an income and expenditure form. This has been sent but insists on evidence for all about goings. Bank statements etc. Can they legally insist on this evidence.   I'd also like to know if it reasonable to request details of the debt. it wasn't  credit agreement it was for an essential service that should have been paid when the invoice was presented. I'm not convinced that the original cost was fair.    Thanks in advance
    • Sorry, but we need to see the entire claim form in PDF. Scanned. I'm particularly interested to see the description of the parties. Also, I notice that you said that you would provide further details of your claim. This was unnecessary – and probably you shouldn't have done it. Have you sent them something now?

    • 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!

I did notice your other thread about this and the advice is the same.

 

If no money has been paid nor any acknowledgement that any money is owing then the debt is Statute Barred.

 

Send em this

 

http://www.consumerforums.com/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/599-letter-sent-when-debt-is-statute-barred

 

and send it recorded delivery

Philips are so up themselves it isn't true. Note how they have the word Baillif in their title and in the letter they state 'commence recovery procedures' trying to make out that they will send the boys round to empty your house and auction your children. Without a court order they can do nowt.

 

dx100uk is quite right, we need to know the last time anything was paid towards this account or the last time you acknowledge the debt; i.e. sent a letter with a payment plan suggestion.

 

Next, NEVER EVER talk to these cretins on the phone, everything in writing and sent recorded sign for (minimum).

 

If there is a clear period of 6 years since the last payment or acknowledgement of the account, then it's statute barred meaning they can ask to be paid but cannot take this to court.

 

If you have paid or acknowlegded the account within the last 6 years and it is for a overdraft (I am guessing that from the current account bit in the letter) then you can send them a prove it letter that is on here somewhere.

 

If this did go to court, and assuming they have all the correct paperwork in place, and you only have ebenfits coming in then you would be unlikely to be paying more than a pound a month and as long as you paid that they could do nothing else. There is no debter prison and if you can't pay then there is nothing you can do so relax.

 

Just make sure there is 6 clear years before you send the statute barred letter!

Doesn't matter. I have an account with Barclays which is almost SB. They contacted me in 2004 and nothing since. It's likely Barclays "forgot" you and then did an audit, found you and flogged it to Cabot (or Fire as they are the same company).

 

The Statute Barred clock starts from when you last made a payment and if this was in 2001, they can politely bu**er off.

 

If you are not absolutely sure, we can give you a "prove it" letter instead.

 

I'm going to ask a mod to merge your two threads.

Got your PM

 

This is a link to some letters:

 

The Consumer Forums - Debt collectors

 

Letter 18 is the prove it letter although you don't need to send it as this debt is Statute Barred.

 

If you want more information on SB debts then look at this:

 

Limitation Act 1980 (c. 58)

 

It is hard work to read but it does mean what it says.
