    • Thanks dx.    Would I not SAR Asset Link Capital as it was assigned to them in 2016 (according to the POC)?   To provide some context, I'm familiar with attending hearings etc and have fought and won a couple of battles.  I don't mind risking a couple of K in extra costs to give it a shot but I need to feel that there is at least a chance of success.   The card was originally an Egg card taken back in 2000 and then sold to BC who then sold to Asset Link Captial (no5) Limited.   When I did a CCA request to BC back in 2015, they provided reconstituted T&C's that post dated when I took the card out with Egg and a Credit Agreement for BC (which was clearly made up as the account was with EGG!).   Appreciate you are being careful to provide advice and not push someone to do something that could end up costing more money, I'm up for the fight though!

    • you wont get eric and that doesn't solve your problem as thats mainly to do with private parking set asides really as most judges now view PPC Backdoor CCJ with dissent and grant it regardless.    i absolutely hate link and paul burrell he built up a £1B+ empire of wealth solely by conning debtors into paying debts they mostly didn't even owe, but in this instance you are on very shaky ground.   me pers i'd not even debated it and i'd just gone for it win or bust. once you get the set aside it should be plain sailing.   but you came for advice and i can't not be truthful here.   the only otherway to better gauge you chances is to SAR Barclaycard , get everything they hold. that will show you the cards that Link will have to play with , they might well be pants.      
    • I have read everything about these cowboys but need a little advice. I was issued my fine on 9/12/19 but only received a dated letter on 11/01/20.   Ive had all the threatening letters from DRP and now Zenith and ignored them all. My wife was driving our car but yet its my dad who's getting all the letters as he's the registered owner. They managed to get my number and rang me today, I busted them for being the same company but the guy on the phone was super aggressive. I said to him Ive spoken to Trading Standards and they told me by law a ticket has to be issued within 14 days of the offence. But as you can see it was over a month, I said this to the aggressive dude on the phone who actually knew way to much about parking fines. So I think they are actually under the same umbrella as VCS also.   He was firing back that the law doesn't state that and I should look at 2012 laws or something and the DVLA, and it takes time to get my details from the DVLA to issue my charge????   Does this mean anything to anyone pls Regards   Stuart
    • Thanks to both of you, I've PM'd Ericsbrother.   dx - I wonder if you would be able to suggest a couple of hypothetical basic defences that you think would be valid  (just to see if it sparks any thoughts of a different approach I could take)?

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

I highly recommend purchasing "TrueCall" and the additional memory card that will allow you to record.

 

Helped me a few times now AND it'll help stop unwanted calls coming in as well :)

 

The whole package for the device and recording card comes in at around £80-90 from Amazon.

I havnt had any of those annoying calls for some time since buying truecall, not even from the persistant gent from india. I also think that the dca companies know when they hear press such and such for family or if call expected, that, the call is likely to involve true call and be recorded xxx

 

Got mine from Johnlewis for 70.00 in their sale and then bought the largest memory card and ordered it and received it the following day. I hummed and harred a while about it due to cost, but boy I now am pleased I have. Less stress :)

The other good thing is that it records EVERY conversation, but if you just hang up it'll delete them.

 

What that means is that if, mid call, something happens and you need the call recorded, you hit the record button and it saves the call from the beginning, not from when you press the button.

 

Can be VERY useful if a company starts making a load of promises down the phone :wink:

The TrueCall unit is remarakably good and I recommend it too. It has very many good points although it is not without its niggles (such as poor indexing of saved phone calls, not 100% firm contacts on memory card, cryptic LED display, £15 annual charge for its rather nice Internet Control Centre after 1st year, audio recording quality could be improved, it's set to dial up TrueCall when first installed "for the time and date", the comprehensive manuals are - well - too comprehensive to be easy to use, no display or keypad on main unit, etc).

 

In my view TrueCall is a better product that Comvurgent's "Secure Digital Call Recorder" which is available from places like Maplins for about twice the price of TrueCall. The Comvurgent recorder is also a quality product and has some nice features but it has some worrying flaws (such as limited duration of call recording resulting in no recording at all if exceeded, limited functions on the PC software provided, etc).

 

Note that the Comvurgent recorder is not designed to intercept calls in the way TrueCall is.

TrueCall can be set to record every call or just the ones you select.

 

If you set it to record just selected calls then be aware of what happens if you use the TrueCall unit on an extension (in other words your phone is NOT plugged into the back of the TrueCall unit). In such a setup, the other party will hear a loud chime tone when you press the button to record the call. Of course, you can say something like "That was my phone's battery warning". However I'm not persuaded that explanation is very convincing if the same caller keeps hearing you say that in each conversation!
