    • They will have to provide proof that it was delivered – either a photograph or a signature.
    • Okay, if you are prepared to go ahead then you should send them a letter of claim. Give them 14 days to refund your money after which you will start a claim in the County Court. Only send this letter if you are prepared to go ahead with your threat on day 15. Otherwise you will simply lose credibility. I'm afraid you won't get your money back any other way. You will probably have to issue the claim papers which will cost you £25. If they are really stupid for this kind of money then they will push you to pay the hearing fee which is about another £40 or £50 – I'm not sure – and on the basis that you win, you will get all that money back. Read around the Hermes threads to see how it works. They will probably opt to go to mediation and that will be their opportunity to try and knock you down and you will find that the mediator will probably try to put pressure on you as well to compromise on your rights. We would suggest that you don't do this and that you stand your ground. The carrot for Hermes is that if they pay you out completely then you won't go to court and there won't be a judgement against them. The stick for Hermes is that if they do push you to court and you win then you will get a judgement against them which will be very damaging for them generally. For this kind of money they would be really stupid to risk it – but they may test you by forcing you to pay various fees. The extraordinary thing about Hermes – like many other big companies, is that they will pay more money to try and crush you that it would cost them simply to pay you out. These people are really stupid. Draft a letter of claim and keep it simple and post it here before you click it off. Draft particulars of claim and post it here before you click that off. After you have sent your letter of claim, use the 14 days to make sure you understand the steps in bringing your action and also to register on the MoneyClaim site so that you can get everything ready and on day 15 click off the claim.

    • 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 to all.

 

Ok, I am currently fighting Howard Cohens re a Debenhams store card and I am in the process of trying to claim back default charges applied to the account.

 

I have had this card since 2001 and need to know what the default charges were back then.

 

The years I hope someone can help me with are:

 

2001, 2002, 2003, 2004

 

I apologise if I have posted in the wrong area and I have tried to find this information out without sucess, I have done a SAR to the original creditor but they refuse to tell me what the charges were for the missing years.

 

Any help is extremely appreciated

 

Kindest wishes sent

Hello, I used to work for GE Capital when hey ran the Debs accounts, I left some tome ago so dont know exactly when they sold the Debs portfolio, But if I remember correctly, I think I was there until 2002. The default notice charge was 25.00 which then went up to 30.00 and the late payment charges were 15.00 and went to 20.00.

 

Hope mthis helps somewhat. xx

Thank you very much for that, I recall default charges being around £30 back when I first got the account, do you know if I can get proof anywhere of what the charges were as I need to prove to the court what I am stating.

 

Kindest wishes sent and thanks again

 

Wish me well :)

Hello there Watson

 

What happened with your SAR request?

 

Why do you need to prove what you have said in your defence?

 

Are they not allowing access to computer or similar equipment records?

 

Have you considered a complaint to the Information Commissioners Office?

 

Come back old boy, Roger.

 

Kind Regards

Well if you have any old statements they should show the charges, however, I think the bank are obliged to tell you what the charges were at the time they were applied. You can also request old statments but these do carry a charge. The cheapest way is to ask for a complete log of any actions on your account (sorry to much wine) I cannot remember the phrase,however, they should show any charges added to your account which will also indicate whether late charges, interest or default notice.

Well hello there old boy

 

and thank you again bulletpoint.

 

Right I finally got the SAR info but they only list the amount of the default charges from 2005!! I need to prove for myself mainly that the amount of default charges nearly wipes out what they are now taking me to court for hence the questions ;)

 

I can prove they added defaults and the dates of these but am unsure how much each one was for.

 

Kindest wishes

OK Watson

 

How much are they claiming you owe?

 

What do the charges add up to from 2005 to present day?

 

Why did they not provide a six year back date?

 

Anything else you can add, what about that Houston at Baker Street, are you going to inform of the details to the question old boy?

 

Kind Regards

Baker Street, the front door thereof, you have in your possession the key so enter at any time my good fellow.

 

No problem, by the way, do you like the new show?

 

The claimant will need to prove that you are legally responsible for the amount he claims and to do that he must produce the documents to show how the figure has been calculated.

 

Kind Regards

I was speaking to a rather deceitful robot the other day regarding him disclosing a copy of a Deed to me, I said to this robot that I have made an application to the Court for disclosure of this particular document, the robot clearly did not believe me and he wrote to me to say that he looks forward to receiving a copy of the application with the Court's seal on it, he went on to say that he has discussed the matter with his client (the claimant) and that his client is not prepared to disclose the document and that he will oppose the application, that very same day Watson the robot received the Court order for disclosure.

 

I told the robot to inform the Court that his client is not prepared to comply with the order of the court, this robot Watson did so make a disclosure statement quite some time ago to the Court regarding the standing of his client before the Court, without that particular document Watson, this robot will be in a lot of trouble for that statement of his, there was another robot on this case who happened to self destruct regarding this matter and now this mature and incredibly experienced robot is having a serious malfunction.

The judge made an order for them to send documents and proof of service for the notice of assignment by the 30th July 2010, they have not sent what has been ordered.

 

I am currently in the process of writing to the court to ask them to strike out and I have gone into detail as to why.

 

I will be loading the said letter and following docs upon Baker Street for inspection.

 

I am sure I am permitted to file further docs if needed but I am hoping I dont need to

 

I'm back Roger

 

KWS, WMW

 

The witness statements stage, not there yet and the court expects the case to be heard in October.

Well that is very good, 30th July 2010 and still no compliance with the order/request for disclosure.

 

Scan it all in, your strike out application to the Court and Houston it over.

Sorry about that Watson old boy

 

I was at Baker street having a read of a new book, the one that you just delivered.

 

I notice that you have not filled out a Application notice (N244) to go with your new book that you are asking the Court to publish Watson.

 

Do you know how to fill the Application out?

 

Come back, Roger

 

Kind Regards

Ah yes an application notice, no I havent filled one in before, is that what I should be doing?

 

I was sort of hoping to save on cost just put it in a letter, is that not going to work Houston.

 

So the answer to the question is, no I dont know how to fill one out. Any tips for little old me dear boy

 

KWS, WMW roger
