    • I would think I would have a strong enough claim with regards to him selling the vehicle on a trade sales invoice, at the moment I believe everything else is perhaps irrelevant...    I will keep updated on any progress with TS if they bother to respond and advice given by CAB as and when I hear back,   Thank you again.
    • Latest (available) government testing figures for 10-september-to-16-september (10 days ago)   "587,173 people were newly tested, consistent with the previous week but an increase of 30% compared to the end of August."   *** Which works out to UNDER 84,000 people a day being tested that appears to be collapsing Handcock, Dido and Sercos Trace-a-test - 30% up from only around 65,000 People tested a day at the end of August   .. for a claimed 240,000-300,000 'capacity which has and is collapsing when even a 3x increase in people being tested should be within the long and still claimed 'capacity   Given the lack of newer figures - they cant be anything to shout about eh?   So my prior estimates of around 60,000 climbing more recently to 75,000 were over estimates; but right in the ball park; and only exceeded in the last few weeks or so.   Info buried under multiple links https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/nhs-test-and-trace-england-and-coronavirus-testing-uk-statistics-10-september-to-16-september-2020/weekly-statistics-for-nhs-test-and-trace-england-and-coronavirus-testing-uk-10-september-to-16-september
    • cross posted see my post above..   oh so it's now paid off.... what does the debt summary line say...settled (forget the calendar marker section no-one bar you and the owner can see that.)
    • Yes that’s my point but they keep dismissing it saying the opposite so I don’t know how to argue back. My argument is they did and still are giving me false advice which I took and in turn put me in a worse financial situation.   I have the CCA for this and all DSAR info. This debt is now paid in full

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Thanks, Guys, great advice and thanks for the links !

 

Only problem is, they've never sent me anything in writing, despite them telling me they have (on numerous occasions apparently! ) so to that end, I couldn't send them anything even if I wanted to, as I have no address for them.

My worry is that they will keep phoning while I'm at work, and be rude to my Wife and upset her even more. Apparently, the man on the other end of the phone kept demanding that she give them my mobile number, to which she kept on refusing. Even though she told them repeatedly that;

 

A) She was not me, and they shouldn't be talking to her regarding this matter.

 

B)She would pass the message on (which she says she must have repeated about 20 times !! )

 

I will send a letter regarding telephone harrassment, but as I said, I have no address to send it to, and as regards the "alleged debt", I have no record of it, or no account or reference number to respond to !!!

1) Contact your telephone provider and inform them of the harassment. Ask them to block the number from call you; or

 

2) Record one of their threatening rants and take it to the police; or

 

3) Purchase a loud whistle and blow it down the phone at them :p

Brilliant, thanks very much!

 

Got a letter from them this morning;

 

REF NO:XXXXXX

 

"Dear Sir or Madam,

 

Your details may now be passed to our Field Agent Co-ordinator.

 

The purpose of a visit will be to establish your residency and reason for continued non payment.

 

Details of your assets, such as vehicles and other property may be recorded during this visit to determine your ability to repay this debt.

 

If you wish to resolve this matter prior you can contact our Field Agent Co-ordinator directly on 07825 735867

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Owen Gregory "

 

WTF???? I'm very surprised that there is nothing else about these muppets on here !!

I'm now in the process of sending them a telephone harassment letter, should I now CCA them as well, or just wait?

They can't just come to my door unannounced, can they?

This worries me because my mother in law often comes to look after the children while we are at work, and would probably flap if some obnoxious bloke came knocking asking for money !!!

Help, please ???:(

Hi Cmad,

They can not visit you unless they make an appointment with you.If they do call the police.

Send them the following.

 

YOUR REF 123456

 

 

Dear Cretins

 

I refer to your recent correspondence.

 

I note it is your intention to arrange a “doorstep call”, please be advised that under OFT rules, you can only visit me at my home if you make an appointment and I have no wish to make an appointment with you.

 

There is only an implied license under Common Law for people to be able to visit me on my property without express permission; the postman and people asking for directions etc (Armstrong v. Sheppard and Short Ltd [1959] 2 Q.B. per Lord Evershed M.R.). Therefore take note that I revoke license under Common Law for you, or your representatives to visit me at my property and if you do so, then you will be liable to damages for a tort of trespass and civil action will be taken.

 

If you do not understand the foregoing I suggest you seek professional advice.

 

yours etc

I have just had a call from MIL threatening me with "The Boys" coming round, I have dispatched the letter as above from the library here, I was even told my name will appear in paper with the conviction if they go to court....I tried to be serious but I just laughed out loud at that one, ohh thats the best one ever. Luckily I was with local police inspector last night at a meeting just mentioned it in passing to him, he was very interested in tatics, had a call from him this morning he sent local police round to visit and advise them what is legal and what was threatening behaviour. I look forward to my next round of dealings with these charmers.

Anyone getting this threat abourt names in paper please ring your local police the more complaints recieved by the police the more likely they will be appearing themselves in court and their offences published in press

I know my rights Mr DCA I'm with the CAG......hello hello where you gone Mr DCA8)

I like the way you can request a more detailed brochure and then they have a line at the bottom that says your ip address, pity when I checked mine against this it was different, must be a way of stopping people making bogus request, by trying to frighten them away - idiots

The joy's I am having right now, with these jokers from MIL.

 

They have been passed an account from Wescot's in Hull (My FME friend previousaly worked for Wescot's, so was very helpful when I needed advice), and it appears to relate to an aledged debt from Provident Credit, whom I used some 8 years a go, and I believe I had paid up the account, however this was at an old address, but I did take care, to ensure that I informed any creditors at the time, that I was moving home.

 

Q today (Saturday), and so far, I have had 2 letters, god knows how many phone calls, and today, a text message, saying they are going to pay me a visit in person.

 

Their first letter, I basicaly said.... guys, no idea if you have a legit claim for this debt or not, so I need you to show me evidence of this debt, such like a signed credit aggrement, and you need to sort this soon, as there are time constraints in which you must peform actions within, or the case will basicaly be statue barred.

 

Got flodded with calls on my mobile, after I put the phone down on one guy, whom decided to talk to me like a lump of crap.

 

Anyway, I have sent on Friday, an e-mail to them, followed by a fax and a RM Signed for letter, reminding them to supply evidence as previousaly required, by the 31st of this month, or the time limit will kick in, and they will forgo any claim that they may have had, and at no time have I admitted any liability, in whole or part, for this debt.

 

Just want to see if I have covered all the bases so far, and anything I need to do or watch out for later?

If there has been no written acknowledgement or payment of this debt for more than six years then it is statute barred under the Limitation Act. Send them the statute barred template letter from the templates section on this site. This is safer than asserting that the debt is SB in another letter. The CAG template is robust and this lot need to be dealt with robustly.

 

Given that they seem to be a bunch of knuckle draggers, they will probably ignore the law. If they do report them to your local Trading Standards via the Consumer Direct website and to the OFT. Don't engage in any further correspondence with them or speak to them over the phone.

Yes, the 6 year rule (5 for Scotland) I am pretty sure will apply in my case (The local CAB also mentioned this to me), but to be sure that is so and as not to show my hand too early, I feel I would need them to first show proof of debt, like producing a credit agriement.

and we have started again but not as threatening i.e no names in paper etc.........however they seem to have misplaced the telephone harrasment letter so another one went today, however I have missed our chats, so the chat was nice at first until I said I have no knowledge of that debt if you feel its me and if you feel I owe it then if I was you I would have me in court so fast to get the cash.

so Mr padja you want us to go to court?

yes please

Right, looks like this account has been bounced back to Wescot's in Hull again, despite my request of proof some 2 months a go (Sent via RM's Signed For service), which was sent to their registered company addresses, according to Companys House, and the CSA.

 

Wescot's are now asking for address / DOB verification, but am I right in basically telling them to "go forth and multiply", as it's been well over 28 days a go, that I asked BOTH Wescot's and MIL for proof of entitlement of debt, like a credit agreement?
