    • By the way, have we checked that you did declare that it was a laptop and that you declared the correct value? Did you apply for the judgement yet?
    • You won't get any compensation for the the screeching.    you will have to find out what the reasonable cost of fitting a turbo would be and then that will probably be the value of your claim. Does that take care of all your losses?
    • Credit card was used maybe in 2014 last. then i was only repaying min. payments till 2016 but this was killing me and I had to stop. On credit reports shows both credit card and overdraft as HSBC accounts.    So if account is defaulted in 2016 would it disappear from credit file after 6 years or will stay there until is paid off?    I really thank you for your time.  E. 
    • They did supply a new turbo yes. Im happy to just get the fitting money back. Although I had to deal with high pitched screaming for weeks I'm sure that could do with some recompense!!
    • Can you remind me. Did the garage supply you with a new turbo for your £2,000? If it did, then you will need to consider what the normal value would be of a new turbo and that at least would have to be deducted from the amount you are claiming. It seems to me that if it was fitted incorrectly then you would be able to claim back all of the money which was paid in respect the fitting but not in respect of a new turbo if they supplied that

    • 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

Just a quick bit of advice, sent DCA a CCA and SAR, they have replied to CCA and also told me they have sent SAR to solicitors, also if i need any further information i should contact the bank.

 

My questions are this.

 

1) If DCA claim to have deed of assignment, why tell me to contact bank for further info, surely they should hold all info about account since they purchased it.

2) Is it normal to send SAR to solicitors, or are they hiding something and what to find out exactly what they should send. SAR requsted deed of assignment.

3) Can i put account into dispute, as credit agreement is barely readable and no t&c's sent.

 

Any help on these 3 ponts would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi Angry

 

1) They should have all the details on the account, just deal with them, remember if they don't provide data as per SAR Request you can report them to the ICO.

2) Your SAR request is a legal request, there is no reason that it has to be sent to the solicitors, unless they are filtering the data. You could send the bank a SAR

Request that way you know you are going to get the complete data. Remember they've only got 40 days, after that report them.

3) Scan, Post the agreement after removing all personal details. The guys here can have a look.

Hi Rebel11

 

Sorry for delay, internet connection went down for most of day. The agreement is OK, except i have copy signed at time loan taken out, now capquest have sent me agreement identical in everyway, except the agreement they have sent me has a totally different signature than the one i have, everything on the agreement they sent is hard to read except the signature and date signed.

 

Could that be fraud???

 

I know that they can reform an agreement, but its has to be original copy, a new signature is not part of original agreement, is that right?

 

Thanks

hi

 

they can't 'reconstruct' a signature!! if they've sent you a 'generic' application form with what they purport to be your signature on it and it is not your sig, then they may be onto a loser!? if they have got the original, then why don't they just send an exact copy of it!? (btw, don't let them know that you have a true signed copy of the original! :-))

Hi Angry

 

So what your saying is that they are trying to pass off the agreement they sent to you as the original agreement. They sent a covering letter, do they specify what the

agreement is? Have they used the word 'Reconstituted'?

Hi

One thing i have forgot to mention, looking closely at dn, its says "The outstanding payments are currently"

then

"due on 10/05/07" £500.

 

Dn was dated 05/10/08

 

Agreement was signed on 19/04/07, so what they are saying is i owed £500 22 days(is) after signing contract, monthly payments not even that much.

 

Wish i could upload, but quality is bad.

try and post up the docs, including the dn. what is the 'remedy' date for the dn? is there any missold PPI involved?

assume it has been sold on as you mention 'deed of assignment'? did you get notice of such assignment? have they threatened legal action? who's the dca? etc. a few more details would be more helpful? i think maybe you'll need to post up the docs for further opinion? as you say, maybe regard it as in dispute as it seems that they haven't sent you a legible copy with any tc's?

Hi Ford

 

Default was 2 years ago and then terminated about 28 days later, seen off many DCA since then, but this one brought details and seem more stubborn.

 

Still have my ace up the sleave, once i have finished messing then about, taking them through FOS at the moment, FOS not very fast so hopefully drag this out for another couple of month, when FOS back DCA as i have no trust in FOS backing the consumer, i'll then appeal and that should take another couple of month.

 

After that should have some new ammo to slow then down.
