    • They've actually been behaving themselves for me, recently.  I'm re-signed with them on a variable tariff, meaning not tied in and can leave any time if they get up to their old tricks.  However something I noticed was that when accepting the tariff they actually showed in advance how they expected that annual total to be split into the 12 months.

    • Hi All   really need some help and advice.   i have a PayPal credit facility with a balance of £400. I owe £270 due this month. I am going to phone them and pay this and clear it as it’s a credit contract and I know they can enforce it.   however alongside that I have a negative PayPal balance of £5000 this is not through the PayPal credit. It shouldn’t have happened and I don’t plan to pay that, at least not now.   if I phone PayPal and pay the credit facility with my debit card will that be ok? Or will they use those details to try and get the money back for the 5k negative balance?   thanks for any help. Whilst I appreciate PayPal credit and the negative balance are separate with them being on 1 page on 1 account I wasn’t sure.

    • 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!

Hi,

 

I was looking for some advice on what to do with my Egg card. The agreement can be found by clicking the link below.

 

Due to my lack of income my current status with this card is that Ive been on a payment plan for 6 months with them.

 

 

This ended 2 months ago and since then Ive paid token payments totalling £26.

 

They are hounding me now wanting payment, which I just havent got so what do I do?

 

I know there's a case going through regarding Egg and this 'approved limit' statement

but is there anything I can send them in the meantime?

 

 

All advice would be greatly received.

 

Regards

Thanks for the pointer 42man, Ive just started to read it.

 

I have had 12 calls of Egg today starting at 8.10am until just now.

 

2 weeks ago I had agreed to contact them at the end of July with an update of how my finances were.

 

 

when I just spoke with them they started acting dumb as if that information wasn't on the system.

 

 

the call was terminated when I told them what I thought of their tactics.

 

whilst im going through PTs thread,

 

 

any pointers to any letters I can send them regards the enforceability of my agreemnent would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

 

I defaulted on a Barclaycard (originally egg) account in 2010.

 

 

I am on a DMP and and they have been getting their cut since early 2011.

 

The Egg card was taken out in 2000 and transferred over to Barclaycard in 2010 around the time i got into financial difficulty.

 

I have sent a CCA request to Barclaycard and had the reply below. Question is, is it enforceable or not?

Thanks in advance.

Who is chasing you for this? It can't be Egg obviously.

 

 

I think it must be a bottom feeder DCA.

 

 

None of the established DCAs would dare phone 12 times in a day.

 

 

(Sorry but I couldn't get Photobucket to load the pics on my mobile so can't see from that).

 

You should include the requirement for all communincation to be in writing only in your next letter.

 

Hopefully good advice will follow on what else to put in that letter.

Hi Bandit127,

 

The first 3 posts are from my original thread started in 2010. This was shortly before I defaulted and went onto my DMP. I'm revisiting this as I cant see any light at the end of the tunnel with my debt amount. Thus seeing what are unenforceable.

OK rule #1

 

Stay off the phone. Send a letter recorded delivery (Keep the delivery recept and proof of postage) and demand that they cease all contact to you over the phone and to communicate to you in writing only. Use the telephone harassment letter from the CAG library

 

Start lookign at reclaiming overlimit fees and late payment fees PLUS interest in restitution. This may make a big hole in whats owed and may even wipe the debt out completly

OK, I got photobucket working. Not sure if they complied with the requirement for the original T&Cs on that but it looks compliant otherwise.

 

Who is chasing this now? I would send them a new request. You can actually send them a request a month (not that you would, but it is technically possible).

Hi, and thanks.

Ok. 2 things for you to do then.

 

1. Check your credit file for this account is accurate. To make sure the money you are paying off your account is accurate. (It might have dropped off by now though).

2. CCA Barclaycard. I know you have Egg's reply from 2010 but it has been transferred since and you need to know that your paperwork went with it. Include the requirement for a statement of account.
