    • If you want to save us all a lot of time, you can tell us the whole story in a chronology without too much narrative including who you are dealing with. We really can't say if you have missed a trick until you lay it all out.   In terms of not wanting to bother us, - very noble, but it is less of a bother if you come to us first so that we can help you to get it right first go  
    • I'm gutted - I always wanted to meet him - he most certainly was the ONLY Bond.  By all accounts he was a lovely man.
    • Boris 'the Liar' speech translated   'Some months ago we told you you had to stay at home to protect the NHS, and you understood that our decimation of NHS funding meant that all other NHS work had to stop, and its resourses were severely limited. Now I'm sure some foolish people thought that was to allow time for the underfunding and the under staffing of the NHS to be reversed. But clearly, as the majority of you did as requested, and suffered and died quietly at home and in homes to a level we could barely believe, clearly it meant that the money we might have been forced to spend on the NHS could be retargetted to our mates like serco - so of course we did.   Now 6 months on, with the NHS staff exhausted and at breaking point,  our pals simply cant be expected to actually deliver on the ridiculous claims, we are simply trying the same scam again on you idiots to free up even more debt generated money to route to our pals tax haven bank accounts which your children, childrens children unto the 7th generation can pay back.   So, with PPE money allocated to companies we chose who clearly needed the money, and debt at record levels I'm sure you will all realise that again everyone else must not mingle, and must stay at home wherever possible, so the children can go and mingle in schools in full sized classes and allow the virus to spread there and get back to you smart arse plebs locked in at home who have managed to avoid it so far. and I'm sure you will all understand its absolutely crucial that neither you or your family -  especially children - should waste essential resources and apply for tests until you are showing clear covid symptoms and we know you have it.   Thank you suckers.

    • Don't worry about it.  It's just that it makes it easier for people to understand and to try to give you advice if you keep everything related to one topic in a single thread, so everything is in one place and not scattered around.  But if you have a new or unrelated topic, it needs it's own new thread, otherwise people get confused and can't separate one topic from another.   Does your question about the courier need a separate thread, or is it part of the unpaid loan to your relative issue?   Whoops!!!  Sorry - I see there is a new thread.  Teach me to read before I post!

    • 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!

Hope someone can help me with this one.

 

Business bank account with RBS however shortage of work over last few months meant no money paid in, o/d maxed out.

 

Kept getting computer generated letters asking for proposals for payment but when I respond with specifics I get no response other than more computer generated letters asking for proposals.

 

Local Business Manager washed her hands of account as soon as I could see I might need their help, passed me on to their Business Collections dept, a faceless bunch who can do nothing more than read of a screen script! Despite many written requests they wouldn't even stop charges or interest on o/d and thats what has taken the o/d beyond original limit and now I'm incurring even higher charges for 'unauthorised borrowing' !

 

Recently managed to secure some contract work and wrote to them to advise anticipated value, payment pattern etc and asked that they temporarily increase o/d to cover initial start up costs and that the o/d be reduced over a period of months back to original limit. They couldn't be bothered to respond.

 

First payment went into the account recently and they kept the lot, didn't even leave me anything to pay wages, expenses, suppliers, VAT, paye/ni........not a penny. Called their business collections dept, "sorry, we haven't received any letters or faxes, nothing we can do without these, anyway its down to you as you owe the bank the money".

 

This has really got me p****d off, isnt their some kind of regs or banking code that prevents them from behaving like this? This organisation, and many others no doubt, seem to think they are above the law.

 

Im having to rely on goodwill and support of family, etc to get me through at the moment, I feel I'm working for absolutely nothing at the minute.

 

Sorry if I've ranted on but my blood is still boiling, I'm probably not the first that this has happened to and I'd appreciate any helpful advice / support / comments from others.

 

How easy would it be to open another business bank account with another bank?.

 

Cheers

time to open another bank a/c!!

 

have a read of sequencies excellent blog in my sig.

 

you might also find it useful to fire off the notice of appropriation letter or alike too.

 

dx

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

 

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

 

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

dx100uk,

 

Wow, thanks for such a quick response!

 

I'm concerned that the letter of appropriation will fall into the same big black hole (bin?) as all my other letters, how long should I give them to respond, I wouldn't want another payment into the account to be consumed by them.

 

If my experience with RBS is anything to go by, it could take weeks to get another business account up & running.

 

Cheers,

You will obv need to be looking outside the RBS group so Natwest is out of the question.

Lloyds do a foundation business account for new business but its not really advertised.

Maybe worth checking that one out.

Theres also lots of Web business accounts now which have good flexibility.

Well, not unsurprisingly, no reply from RBS to letter of appropriation. I called local RBS Business Relationship Manager who confirmed she had received her copy and tried to get someone in their Business Collections Team for me to speak with.

 

After a number of unsuccessful calls on my behalf (allegedly), her only advice was that I should phone their 'team' to discuss my proosals to settle account and whether they might allow me to withdraw some of the funds that they had mis-appropriated.

 

She also suggested that I should arrange alternative banking facilities and when pushed on the matter, reluctantly confirmed that RBS were no longer going to provide me with a business banking facility.

 

I've stopped any further payments from being made while I sort out another bank account. The RBS have certainly not been 'fair' or 'sympathetic' in their dealings with me and have caused so much stress, anxiety and hardship for me and my family, they've worsened our financial situation without us spending a penny!

 

Any advice on what my next steps sould be would be really appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Sare Heid
