    • Hi,     I'm in the process of voluntary termination of my moneybarn agreement, in accordance with secion 99(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. I have returned the vehicle, it was collected by a 3rd party on behalf of MB, in driveable condition with fear wear and tear condition.  Their report states that the condition was "Average" (The options were Good, Average and Poor). I have paid more than 50% and recently, before starting the VT process spent £700 to make sure car is roadworthy (gearbox repairs). I am £880 over the 50% mark. Today I've received final billing letter estimating body repairs at over £1,300 (the bodywork is fine - peeling lacquer and alloy wheels would need refurb though). I've purchased the car at 7 years old with over 80k miles, through National Car Credit (pretty sure I've seen another topic on here about them). The car is now more than 10 years old, and I did take pictures + videos of the car before it was collected.   Now. I've had a payment holiday through April and May (which I don't dispute and will willingly cover the amount that they're asking for this payment holiday term) But however I'm not okay with covering the bodywork repairs for a car that is over 10 years old and wasn't excellent condition the day I've purchased it. It came with no service history book and only one key (on my own expense I've purchased another one and had it programmed)   No arrears on the account, no missed payments (just 2 month agreed payment holiday - between myself and MB) which I'm okay to cover. Given the car back in drive-able condition (it was very noisy the week before it was collected, hence why I've spent money on repairs) half of tank of petrol, kept tax up to the day it was collected.   Advice would be appreciated, thank you.   dx: I can't pm you as I haven't got enough posts on here, but if you'd like more details and see what has been sent and see the responses please PM me.     Thanks.
    • I am not a lawyer but I definitely think you are correct.   You will need evidence that Fast Track was not available on your way out - "Unknown reasons" sounds ominous. Do you have pictures/videos/written records to prove it?   Ryanair website states they are not responsible for you missing your flight as a result of fast track, but it doesn't say anything about not being responsible for the product they sold you not being available. Have you tried asking for a refund already?   Either way they sold you something that they did not provide - I don't see how this can be legal - and hopefully you should be able to prove it. Get written evidence that they refused to refund you (if you don't have it already) and take it straight to your card provider. (by many accounts it seems pointless to try and negotiate with Ryanair)
    • Hello everyone, recently I ordered 4 birds, 2 canaries and 2 lovebirds from a pet shop in Nottingham. When I received the birds, one of the canaries looked scruffy and had a bald spot on its back. when I asked the owner if this was normal he stated that “it is a baby and will be normal in a week” so I waited a week and I discovered it was sneezing throughout the night. I then decided to check their weight and the scruffy one was only 15 grams while the other was 26 grams. While weighing them I discovered they were covered in blood mites (small bugs that feed on blood) so I contacted him and he said I could return them but I’m unable to drive an hour to his shop so I offered to pay another delivery fee fr him to pick it up but he was ignoring me so I decided to try to treat them and bought many medicines and I cured their mute problem but now all 4 birds are sneezing, I’ve had many birds before and I’ve never had these problems so I asked him if he couldn’t please come pick them up but he kept reading my messages and ignoring me then when I called him he blocked my number so I messaged him on my other number laws showing te sale of an ill animal is prohibited and sent him proof of his false advertising (saying they were “excellent healthy birds”) proof fm their illness and he blocks me again. I feel scammed and according to the law he I is obligated to refund me for the birds and any medical expenses but I don’t know know where to report him or what to do about it. Any suggestions would  be greatly appreciated. Thank you 
    • well anyway. as its the same email then and not directed at them to pay no its not correct they have done it under gdpr etc etc.   so regarding the debt. what readings prior to this have you been sending? to prove this billing is correct or not  have regularly sent them before  and is the estimated readings higher than your actual usage. when does the debt First date back too aswell

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hello! I've recently obtained my credit history from Experian Credit Expert, following a loan application being unexpectedly declined (previously excellent credit record) and am now trying to resolve this. It's quite painful! Unwittingly, and just trying to find out what my options might be other than a bank loan, if my credit rating isn't resolved, I pressed the key for "further information" and explanation of the results of this little investigation. Oh, I wish I hadn't! An outfit called Aspire are now hounding me to apply for a loan with them - they are shown as being Experian's "advisers" on loans. They've phoned me five times today (at work, I put them off) but I know they'll phone me again. I don't want to apply for a loan, I thought I'd get some advice online from them. I really should have known better - they've texted me twice as well as phoning. Is this really what Experian are supposed to be doing? I have become completely disillusioned with CRAs as I've tried to resolve my credit position in the last few weeks. No one will do anything quickly, either. They seem to hold differing information about me, too, which hasn't been very helpful.

Hi, new to this forum. Same thing here!!! Not sure how to proceed, as we do actually need a loan and aiming to get rate low as possible as own bank offering stupid APR %. Aspire seem reasonable and aimimg to hlp. I agree that Experian should NOT be doing this, as I di not ask to be directed towards that link and they then phoned. Have to wait and see if it backfires or not

DO NOT GO WITH A LOAN COMPANY WHO CONATCT YOU!

Don't forget the old addage, anything that seems too good to be true probably is!

Not had dealings with them, but have you Googled them? Do they ask for an upfront fee?

 

Getting strange calls myself after taking Equifax on for mishandling my data (Check your table 1 searches and get back to me if any of them are from a DCA).

 

HB

 

Read on hear recently that CRA's are selling details, and intend to look into it further.


:razz:ALWAYS REMEMBER, IF YOU GOT YOURSELF INTO YOUR SITUATION, YOU ARE MORE THAN CAPABLE OF GETTING YOURSELF OUT OF IT

WITHOUT THE HELP OF THE DCA's!!!!!!!!!!!

We cannot hide from even the credit scorers eh?? They seem to look for loans based on your Experian score? i couldn't see anything underhand with how they operate, and it seems that you are under no obligation to proceed with any loan. Also, as they 'appear' to be promoted by Experian I don't believe that a credit agency with this amount of clout would risk their reputation gambling with Aspire if they used underhand tactics......i may be very wrong however! I tried to post theaspire link but apparently being new to this site I have to post a certain amount of times before it will allow me to do so

 

 

 

 

Cheers!

I must admit, Experain do seem to be the most proffesionial of the 3 CRA's, but they also appear to be passing details on to a loan company! :|

Sadly our data isn't OURS, it is a sellable commodity, and data is used for all sorts of things.

 

Even before you are born there is data about you, from the time your birth person (apparently a new PC name which can encompass surrogate mothers (paid and unpaid) and all other eventualities) first attends a clinic when they are expecting you - and when you are actually born not only is the data file set up you also have other records set up. It is a very easy area to get paranoid about, and a very easy area to be complacent about.

 

Experian are unregulated, unlicenced and uncontrolled and therefore they should NOT have such a hold on society as a whole as they do.

 

Rant over for today!

 

If any company contacts you from a contact from Experian the route to go is to complain to Trading Standards and the Information Commissioner and the Ministry of Justice, that way a file will be built up on this unregulated, unlicenced activity and if enough people complain then they will have to do something.
