    • To me, it isn't just about social distancing and hygiene measures. I'm far from the first to say it but until there's a reliable track and trace system, I don't think this can be managed properly.   Children may not suffer as much as adults, although some do, they can be asymptomatic and pass on the virus to the rest of the family.   https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/lockdown-david-king-second-wave-18739973
    • When will most schools actually re-open in September ?   And when they open, will they be providing teaching over the number hours 9am to 3pm  ?   I am thinking of the school I attended, which was a large Victorian building, with many modern extensions.  The classrooms which could accommodate about 35 Children elbow to elbow, will only be able to accommodate 20 at the most with any reasonable distancing.   Or does the whole class  of say 35 stay in a bubble and the teachers move around to teach the different subjects ?    I can see many schools opening later in September, not for all pupils for all days and not doing the full hours.   This is going to be very difficult to manage for all those concerned, including parents looking to return to work.     
    • Hi.   If you do a search of our forums you will find other people who've had trouble with Marquis. Sadly people don't always update their threads with the final result.   Scroll up this page to the red strip at the top, and type Marquis into the white search box on the right.   HB
    • I think independent assessments and quotations will be essential. Once again please monitor this thread for a for the reply later on or tomorrow
    • We'd love to return it but from everything I've read it would a long drawn out business so keeping it would probably be simpler.   I think we are going to give them a chance to sort the heating/hot water.We've got very squeaky brakes now which my local garage is going to look at a week on Monday. I'm saving all receipts etc. I'd also like to charge them for fuel used and my time doing what they should have done.   The time they take to get anything done is what is bothering me. If I choose to go somewhere else for a repair for anything would I be able to charge Marquis or do I have to continue using their warranty   I hadn't thought of getting an independent assessment, not sure how you go about it but I'll look into it. Thanks for the reply

    • 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 - due to default on my QQ loan next week. I have been paying £100 interest every month for quite a while now and I just want to pay it off..

Been looking through a few threads which I have found to be very helpful - thanks!

I have cancelled my card and made sure they have no DD set up.. Im also prepared for the email ping pong aswell with them. Im just want to pay it off and I know that they are buggers for trying to set up a plan..

Also heard the DCA they pass to are awful! Any further help or tips would be verrrry welcome..

First time on here too hope ive posted this in the right place 8-)

Hi tink. Welcome to cag. You are doing it all right. All you need to do now is wait for dca contact. You are the one in control now. Some of their dcas are very easy to deal with, some like muckhall are a pain. Never seen a qq court case! Post again when you hear from them.

How much have you paid back compared to the original loan amount, and how much is still outstanding??

 

If you have paid back more than originally borrowed they may accept a full and final amount rather than see you go down the DCA route, you have nothing to lose by asking.

Well done for changing bank accounts - watch out for emails from other payday loan companies asking for your details - QQ have been known to glean info from these emails you don't want them to have.

 

I went through a barrage of phone calls from them both at home and at work, I refused to give security details, especially as they didn't identify themselves as Quick Quid, I had Double Q, Q lending, Q collections amongst others.

 

Once you stand your ground and they realise you know what your rights are they tend to sulk... watch out for the 'Phillips Specialist Bailiffs' or Marstons Bailiffs letters, in this case the bailiffs CANNOT use their bailiff powers to collect on a civil debt... if you get any letters or emails which are threatening send them to Trading Standards.

Mine was paid back late last year.

 

Cancelling your card isn't always enough, get another account for your main income source to go into to safeguard it from 'being arrested' as they love to state.

 

Halifax do a good online account with online banking and telephone support and they don't do a credit check.

If you have paid more than originally borrowed give them a call before thursday see if they will accept a sum to close the account.

 

if you default they will add hundreds more in charges and default fees you have nothing to lose at this stage, they can only say no (which will leave you in the same position you are in now)

Yeah ive opened a new one with halifax already, my wage will get paid into the one QQ have though so im going to have to keep a check and make sure they dont set up a DD before I get chance to transfer my funds to my halifax account.

26072004 - will they refuse to discuss my account though because I havent yet had a default on the account? Just read that a few times on here thats all.

 

Thanks!

Afternoon Everyone!

Been waiting for my QQ payday loan to be passed on to DCA and I have now received a letter from Mackenzie Hall stating that ive been issued a default and have 7 days to pay or it will go to court etc..

Is this normal? Should I now be contacting the DCA to arrange a payment plan?

Thanking You!

Hi again!

 

After a bit of research and please correct me if I'm wrong ...................

 

Did you actually receive a Default Notice from Mucky Hall or QQ? If not, then they cannot take any action, including court action unless a default notice has been issued.

 

I think it's Bully Boy tactics here hun. They can't take you to court after 7 days - typical scaremongering - total barstewards imo. If they did send you a Default Notice You need to speak with whoever sent you it and come to an arrangement with them. Stick to your guns and keep a copy of all correspondence. They will eventually come to an agreement but only agree to pay the loan plus one month's interest. Remember if this does go to court (which it very likely will not) then you have a right to defend yourself and no court in the land is gonna take mucky hall's side especially if you try to come to an agreement with them. I think most creditors would prefer to come to an arrangement without going to court.

 

Let me know how it goes x

Mucky hall are a joke a q'q debt I have went to them about a year ago I tried to come to an agreement but they were not having it so I advised them accept my proposal or sod of (50 per month for a £600 debt)

In the end they said it was not enough so I just thought sod em.

I Have received numerous letters from them i.e

-pay within 7 days or we will take you to court

-we will send doorstep collectors within 7 days

- (I like this one) we have been left with no choice but to start court proceedings.

-and various offers of an early settlement.

Now I have received a weird letter saying "we have obtained this address as a financial link from a credit reference agency if you are not the named person please contact us"

As far as I am concerned mucky hall are one big joke and they should be ignored. (Personal opinion)

Hi Paxon - that's hilarious - SOD OFF to the DCA's :heh:

 

So basically they have made idle threats with no intentions whatsoever of carrying them out? So don't these people want their money or what? Or do they just enjoy harrassing people. Have they added loads of charges?

Glo,

If you look through/Google Mackenzie hall there are copious amounts of threads on all forums about them and there collection tactics.

It does seem they are idle threats as the letter categorically stating we WILL be issuing a claim at Northamptonshire county court within 7 days was sent to me 6 months ago.

Don’t get me wrong I have seen posts where they have taken people to court, though I would not be surprised if someone working for them was the poster that’s the sort of company they are.

Yeah well I hope they're reading this - bunch of aerosoles - TAKE ME TO COURT

 

So what happens if they issue a claim at the court paxon? Do you get a letter from the court? Or is it left up to the DCA to send you the details?

Well you will have to refer that question to another more informed poster as I have been lucky as I have 14-15 creditors and am lucky as of yet no one has issued a claim.

 

I think but don’t quote me the dca/creaditor will issue the claim to the court then the court will send a summands and a poc (particulars of claim) for you to file a defence with a deadline for you to send it back. Then you go to court on the date they have gave you to fight your corner.

 

But I doubt you will be getting one of these from Mackenzie hall

I might buy one of those books from the CAG website about how to defend yourself in court. Just in case .............

 

Don't know where I'd be tbh without the help of CAG and everyone on here. Love it love it love it :-D
