    • 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

I cancelled an agreement with a loan provider some time ago, within the cancellation period of 14 days.


The loan provider is claiming interest from the time the loan was due until 54 days after that time. I have some questions:


1. It was my impression that no interest was due in the 30 calendar days immediately following cancellation. Is this correct? If it isn't paid within that time, does this 30 day period become chargeable for interest?


2. In the agreement, under the section detailing cancellation, there is no word of any provision allowing interest to be charged. There's mention of interest and applied rates in other sections on the agreement, but none of them talk about cancellation, and all are void in the event it is cancelled. Can the loan provider continue to add interest even though the agreement doesn't tell them they can?


The only thing the cancellation part of the agreement says about interest it "If you pay all of it before the first instalment is due, or if you are not paying in instalments, within 14 days after cancellation you will not have to pay interest or other charges." That's it. In another part of the agreement (under 'key information') it says "interest shall accrue from the day after signing this agreement until the loan is paid off in full", but since the agreement is cancelled, surely that becomes void?

got no idea, but why would you take out a loan and then give it back? they could say it was adminitration charges which allows them to charge you something..

Yes they can charge you interest but only for as long as you kept the money.


If you returned it after 20 days they can only charge 20 days interest. It must be written on your agreement somewhere they will charge a daily rate.


unfortunately with payday loans it is almost pointless cancelling as the daily int rate will add up to almost the same (if not more, unless you return the funds before 30 days) as the original loan

Wait, how are they within their rights to charge interest, though? The agreement is cancelled. The part of the agreement concerning cancellation allows no provision for them to carry on charging interest.


I'm not sure I understand what makes their interest charges valid :???:

they are not giving anyone an interest free loan. Not sure who your agreement is with maybe they have made a mistake on thier credit agreements, but unlikely as they would have employed large and expensive solicitors to draw up their legal documents.


I have two agreement to refer to (wonga and month end money) and both state even if you cancel they can charge for services provided.


its all perfectly legal otherwise everybody could borrow xxx amount interest free for up to 44 days.

But you cannot be held bound by an agreement which is cancelled, surely? Read the first post in this thread for the text of what the agreement says about cancellation.

How much was the loan for and how much are they charging you for it?

How long was the original agreement for?

I can only comment on agreements I have seen, if yours states you can return the monies and there is no charge or interest payable then i cant see how they can charge you.


maybe you should ask them where in the agreement it states they can charge interest.


The cancelling issues is a catch 22, by agreeing in the 1st place to the credit agreement you are agreeing to their cancellation clause, which may or may not inc a paragraph about interest/fees.


The distance marketing regulations 2004 states they can make a charge for any service provided. By transferring the money into your account they have provised you with that service. its all legal and above board i'm afraid.
