    • 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

    • 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

HI all

 

I have recieved a letter today from HFO who are saying that i am refusing to pay my debt?? i forgot i had a barclaycard as it was 5/6 years ago and from previous address when was with ex partner. i havent received any letters previously from this company or from barclaycard like since prob 2004/5.

 

It is stating in the letter that i am on a 72 hour notice of litigation?? and they say we should warn you that if we do not hear from you do not get in contact within this time you account will be passed onto our solicitors for legal action,and this will result in legal costs being added to your debt.

 

The card was only for £250 and these people are asking for £1252.60

 

Please advise me on what i should do

 

thankyou all

Hi

 

Welcome to the HFO Fan Club. This debt could be Statute Barred if you are certain that you have not made any payments or acknowledged it for more than 6 years (5 if you live in Scotland) however, if you are unsure, I think I would send a request for CCA letter, registered post with Postal Order for £1 and do not sign this letter. The link to the template is http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/581-cca-request-letter

 

If you do receive anything like a proper agreement within 12 working days (plus 2 days) you can then put the account in dispute and they would have problems doing anything 'legal' until an agreement is produced. Post any replies back on here.

 

It does not sound like they are phoning you which is good.

It does not sound like they are trying to enforce a CCJ as they are just threatening 'legal action' now but it is worth getting 'free trials' of your Experian and Equifax credit reports to see if there are any entries put there by HFO or Barclaycard (or if they have recorded any recent searches). Alternatively, you can get a printed one by sending them £2, I think.

Someone on CAG has advised that you should not enter your true phone numbers (make one up) when you register as they can be passed on to creditors. Remember to cancel before the CRAs charge you (you need a debit card to register for free trial). Alternatively, you could wait and see if HFO send you a copy of your credit report plus a photo of your house, which they did to me!

If this alleged debt is on your credit report, it could show how far it is away from being stat barred.

Yes, it is not worth the bother!

 

I would get your equifax report as well as defaults can be on one report and not the other.

Couple of points, if you do decide to write to them, do not sign just type your name, head your letter with " I DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE ANY DEBT TO YOUR COMPANY OR ANY COMPANY YOU CLAIM TO REPRESENT"

 

You say you have requested your credit report from one of the CRAs, well expect any number of creditors to come out of the woodwork now, as the Dcas are the paymasters of CRAs, hence i always advise anyone against broadcasting themselves to these vultures


Please note i have no legal training any advice i give comes from my own experience and from what i have learned on this site

Ignore them for the moment, but worth sending SAR to Barclaycard.


US President Barack Obama referred to Ugland House as the biggest building in the world or the biggest tax SCA* in the world.

I have posted on the other thread aswell, they could do with merging, could get messy, ignore HFO for the moment, but send SAR to Barclaycard, should include copy of CCA.

There seems to be a good plan here.

 

Ignore HFO for now - keep the CCA request in mind as may need it later if you get more hassel.

 

Check credit reports. I got mine it July and have found it useful as I know which worms are now in the woodwork, so far not caused any problems

but don't give them any data like phone number.

 

Send Subject Access Request to Barclaycard. This should tell you if there was a valid CCA agreement (doubtful), when any payments were last made,

who BC sold the debt to and when etc. BC will have sold the debt as HFO will not be acting on their behalf.

 

THE SAR costs £10 by postal order and they have up to 40 days to reply so could take a while.

 

Don't worry - the more information you can get, the better. Report back with anything received.

 

The link to the SAR letter is:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/resources/templates-library/86-debt-collectors/576-subject-access-request-debt-a-dca

 

I don't have an address for Barclaycard but I am sure that other Caggers do.
