    • The Independent are saying that Boris is dropping the promise of not allowing US chlorinated chicken, hormone-fed beef and so on.   https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/chlorinated-chicken-us-trade-talks-boris-johnson-trump-a9549656.html#gsc.tab=0
    • The problem with these small debt amounts is that they can hang around like a bad smell. Every now and again you will start to receive letters followed by phone calls. Then it will go quiet and you will have another debt company chasing you. This could go on for many years.   Ignore DCBL as advised.   Send a complaint letter to ELE/Engie, asking why they have asked DCBL to chase a debt, when ELE have never sent any such bill to you. Then explain that you received a final bill relating to address xxxx and you paid it. If somehow there had been a billing error, ELE were advised of your new address, so they should have written to you at the new address.        
    • Of course it could be the same company trading under variations of the same name in order to dilute their bad reputation. In terms of the money you paid, section 15 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act says that where a price for services has not been agreed then a reasonable price will be implied. I gather from what you have told us that they give you the price in advance and you agreed. I'm afraid that on this point, you would be bound to pay the price because contract law does not help people to make good bargains. It simply requires the people stick by the bargains they have made. On the other hand, if they undertook to do a certain job of work and to achieve a certain result – and that result wasn't achieved then you certainly have an action against them. The problem is that a company like this may be difficult to get hold of unless they have got a very clear office or workplace and some assets. The second problem is that you would probably be required to have given plumbforce the opportunity to come back and try again – and unfortunately you didn't do that. This means you tried to make a claim against them, they would probably argue that these plumbing problems they always take one or two goes to fix and that a reasonable person would give them an opportunity to sort it out before going elsewhere. I'm sure you're absolutely right and these people are completely overpriced – and it seems that they have done a bad job – and of course the reviews don't do them any favours. However, I think you're going have difficulty getting your money back on this – although if you want to try, will be very happy to help you – but I'm sure that it will go to a small claim in the County Court. Of course this would be an interesting exercise for you if you have the energy. It's quite simple – but of course you do risk your claim fee and your hearing fee if you lose. I can imagine that if you produced evidence of their reputation and what has happened in court that the judge will be disposed to find in your favour regardless of the arguments which I have suggested that they might put forward. The final risk could be that they would say that you are only entitled to recover the cost of the second plumber required to finish the job that you had paid Plumbforce for. In other words about a hundred quid. It's not a bad argument – I don't know if it is a winning argument – and as I probably wouldn't bother to be represented, they might not think of it for themselves. However, I'm just letting you know of all the possibilities in this problem. Of course I think one of the lessons view is to make sure that you get at least two quotes for everything – even if it seems to be an emergency. When your new home, it's worth making sure that you gather a list of reliable support services – either from your experience or from the experience of neighbours who will already have been through it. That way you can be reasonably certain that if you have any other problems with heating or lighting or water – et cetera, you will have one or two numbers to hand that you can call on with a certain amount of confidence.

HI EVERYONE.

 

Has anyone actually been took to court by M & S Money? More specifically I am asking has anyone that used to have the M&S storecard - then automatically been sent the Mastercard (about 2002/03) without signing new terms and conditions and with much higher credit limit - has anyone in this situation ever been actually took to court by M & S ???

 

I personally doubt if they have a leg to stand on if new T&C were not signed for. I have researched internet for any possible court cases and i havent found any.

 

I do know of one person (on this site) that was took to court and m&s dropped the case on the actual day of court hearing - but i dont know of anyone in this position that m&s have actually gone all the way with.

 

anyone know??

 

thanking you all in advance. x

Only one has been Seriously Fed Up, which is the one I think you mention.

They have threatened me with everything apart from getting my manhood cut off, still I await for their next move.

Many threads on here regarding the change from storecard to mastercard, read and enjoy.

Hi pretty

 

Have you sent them a CCA Request and SAR Request? It would be interesting to see what they have got.

Hi there - AJS 444 and Rebel11

 

Yes AJS SFU was the only one i have seen that M&S got close with. and i feel bit more confident now that m&s know they are on very shaky ground.

 

and Rebel - yes i have CCA'd them and SAR reqeusted them. All they have is a application form for a charge card with a £500 limit back in 1993 and i know that i definately never signed for a mastercard. they are trying to say that because i used the mastercard - thats enough. however, i have read loads on here to know that under CCA act i think section 51 - it needs a signature. plus they are trying to say that they changed all these charge cards with the full approval of the OFT which i also know is a lie - how do they get away with all these lies?!!

 

they have sent me loads of stuff on the SAR request, however, it is extremely hard to understand most of it as they have put a lot of stuff in codes and even tho they send a code de code index - its rubbish as most of the codes are not on it!!

 

they keep sending me to a DCA then i reply to said DCA stating that no sig on a mcard agreement etc, then i dont hear from them for six months and then i get another letter just when i start to relax from yet another DCA!! I am just about to form my reply to newest DCA with is someone called DLC (direct legal collections). may need some help later with legal bit.

 

thanks for all yr help.

Hello there PPC. I see you're on the 6 month shuffle now (by which I mean M&S pass it to a new DCA every 6 months). All you have to do is learn how to ignore them and wait until 6 years have passed since you last made any payment. I think there are a fair number of CAGgers doing the same dance. After protracted correspondende with M&S I personally have told them that I will not deal with any third party agency they may wish to appoint, and so just file but do not respond to the letters from the DCAs (not even the ones offering me 80% or 30% discounted settlement figures!).

just as a point of clarification BPC they didnt drop the case on the day of the hearing - we never got to within one month of a hearing. They dropped it in within a week or so of my defence going in. The only hearing was to grant an agreed motion of absolvitor. If they think you know your way around they will drop it - or keep harassing you with DCAs etc - but they darent take it to court if the debtor is going to defend because they know they will lose. What they want are the people who will give in and not defend.

AJS - good to see you are still fighting the good fight with this lot, though unfortunate you are still having to (had a look at your thread).

Hi SFU,

 

Still getting pursued by the low life, though nice return from Barclaycard/Goldfish this week, got to keep fighting the B**t**ds.

 

Look after yourself.
