    • Hi Slick,   Amazingly fast reply, thank you!   According to the reference on the payment it says "ON 24 SEP BCC" and the payment cleared 25th September at 11:26   I was simply told to sign up on the website by a staff member in the gym, no further information was given to me by them. The website stated that it's a rolling monthly membership that could be cancelled at any time "No contract membership JUST £14.99 a month, until 2021*" As far as I am aware there was absolutely no minimum membership length, unless there's some small print I've missed somewhere. But Harlands haven't mentioned anything about me being obliged to pay for a certain length of time so... I've attached a picture to this post of what I signed up for.   Also, I'm not sure if this has any relevance at all but the building is plastered with £9.99/month signs EVERYWHERE yet it costs £14.99 when you go on the website. False advertising 🙄 Could perhaps use that as leverage in a letter if it comes to it, I dunno? 😂
    • I look forward to hearing from a member of the team 
    • Hi Selrahc and welcome to CAG   Please be in no hurry to contact X4Less, Harlands or CRS - they can do nothing for now.   Before you do anything, we need more info. Please confirm :-   1. Approx date you joined.   2. Were you told it was a rolling monthly m/ship by a staff member, or a longer minimum contract.   You have no need to reply to any demand from Harlands/CRS so ignore them for now.
    • why don't you have the green slip of the v5c and what do they want it for?

    • 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 all, hoping someone can help me.

 

Had an account with this company which was settled end of 2007.

 

First Super Payment Protection made 12th August 2003 (from my statements) last after telephone/written complaint 11th April 2007.

 

Requested return of PPI December 2007, they offered 50% of premiums paid in full and final which amounted to £258. (Quote Peace of Mind Plan) I refused this and they also refused to comply with SAR as I would not comply with their witness signature form.

 

Last wrote to them in January this year threatening with court action but unable to use their letter offering refund as it is marked without prejudice. From my statements I have made the total of PPI £227.62 but have no idea of the interest applied around 2003 altho they have sent me a copy of "the agreement" of the type which I would have signed (ha ha) when opening the account in 1997 which shows their rate of interest as 39.6%. Also Total charge for credit interest £21.44 Interest calculated daily at rate of 33.8% pa. Can someone tell me how I should be calculating what they owe me?:???:

Oh well, no takers, have had a look at the compound interest calculator and will go with their figure of 39.6% and get OH onto calculating this weekend, guess we will have to work it out on each monthly figure, also think I'll try and talk to the FOS on Monday as obviously they might have been applying PPI since 1997, in which case little wonder they wouldn't comply with my SAR!

Hi this is normal claptrap from J.D. Williams have a look at my thread from July 2007 they are still giving the same rubbish out. They will have no signed agreement therefore no agreement to apply interest or PPI claim both back using the same interest they charged you. It takes time but you can claim this back.

Well the saga continues. LBA re SAR sent off about 10 days ago to Classic Confidence, no reply so another LBA sent to JD Williams yesterday.

 

To-day received large envelope with big sticker on back legal department JD Williams, another lengthy SAR Request form with demand for £10 (already paid in 2008). Form contains such daft questions as "Have you applied for employment with any of our companies, if so which one?" and last page (no wonder catalogue is called Classic Confidence) For completion by witness (who should not be a relative of the applicant).

 

OK JD Williams my patience is exhausted, will start legal action next week for an order under Section 7 and Section 15(2) of the Data Protection Act 1998.

  • 11 months later...

Well, here we are still rumbling on a year later and heading for hearing shortly, they certainly did owe me more than they offered about 5 times as much and thats only at 8%. Because I owe them nothing (Isen't that a Bros song?)I am going for them for the full 39.6% they charged me. I have sent in my court bundle and they have submitted a witness statement, same old drivel along with exhibits of black screenshots with blue typing which I had to get out the magnifying glass to see and exhibits such as terms and conditions of Pomp and a beautiful black almost illegible print out of Good News for Pomp Customers as from 2005 Hospitalisation Cover - news to me, never saw anything about it - in my opinion, even I could have manufactured that yesterday on a computer.

 

Anyhow, my question is - as part of my court bundle I sent in civil procedure rules 33.4,33.5 &33.6 plus the Civil Evidence Act - I really cannot understand the legalise of the advice given and wonder whether I have to give notice to the court and the other side of my intention to cross examine the statements made in the witness statement.

 

Hope someone can help as time is getting short.

Ok, panic over,found the info I wanted on the web, looks like I will be able to cross-examine and question the dark side without CPR, really looking forward to that part one of the statements dear Pippa has made is that typically she would travel to the telemarketing Companies making the calls on behalf of JDW on a 3 monthly basis to listen to live calls being made to customers - so how many customers did they have at that time and how many calls did she listen in to and why haven't they got a transcript or tape of the call made to moi!

Ok, stayed up late and nearly finished my witness statement, of course when I reread the Judge's order that was the right way to go, just having a bit of a wobble but well back on track now.
