    • So here we are about 8 weeks and approaching 2 months from: (during which failing to even collect 250 spit samples a day  @£500M)   BBC Breakfast - Matt Hancock on coronavirus testing (03Sept20).mp4
    • Good morning,   Thanks for the reply.  This gym involves Legacy Leisure, the gym I use is Rutland Sports Park, though my account is linked to Friesland Sports Centre as that’s where I initially signed up (they have 5 different sites all working as one in this area).  It was a council owned and run gym before they brought in this third party to do it for them (and reduced the quality, but that’s a story for another day).   As suggested I have cancelled the direct debit.  I received another email last night telling me that they would freeze my account for a further 6 months for an ‘admin fee’ of £5 per month.  I will be telling them that’s not good enough.   Apparently I owe them £25 for an admin error on their behalf from about a year or so ago (they mentioned this at the time but said they would look in to it, and never mentioned it again).  I’m happy to pay what I owe outside of this £26 28-days notice fee.   So: what should I do next?   Thanks again,   Sam

    • 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!

I suffer terribly with hay fever ( arh poor thing ) i hear you say. All the usual symptoms, but i have a really strange noise going on in my left ear. Its most prominent when i lay down, and can only be described as the noise you get when your tummy rumbles with hunger. Its really weird.

 

Could it just be a case of needing my ear syringed.?

 

P.S. I only went and posted this in the bailff forum.:oops: Thicko or what. They can come and levy anytime.:-)

Hayfever take 2 teaspoon of LOCALLY produced honey each day, you can bung it in your tea, got to be local, ears may need syringe but if mine need doing I use clean olive oil and put a bit in just warmed but not hot. Keep head on side for a few mins and repeat till cleared then do the other ear, nurse said it was better than syringe when I last went, noise could be caused by ear blockage but if it persists then seek advice from a pro as I am not, Its just what I do. But the honey works!

Thanks for that. No im definitely not blonde:lol:

 

I thought tinnitus was just a ringing noise, which i have had on many occasions, but nothing to worry about, and nothing like this. This is so different from anything i have ever had before. I am getting a lot of dizzy spells as well, so i think i might get the vet to check me out.:oops:

 

Thanks for the tip Andy. We back onto local woods, so i might BEE lucky and find some there.

Well get to a doctor soon then if you are having dizzy spells, we all hate going but they are signs for a reason, low blood pressure I think can be as bad as high but they will tell you.

I am another hayfever bod and its setting my asthma off badly. Ive already described the scene of walking round with bath towell as a hanky out of desperation and going through and entire pack of loo rolls:!:

 

Point is I am going to give the honey a go as has been suggested. I just need to find some xx

 

I know there is a farm shop so will ask kids if they could go there and find some. Got to try something.

You can get olive oil from the chemist, I wouldn't use your ordinary cooking olive oil. My sis has had lots of problems her entire life with her ears, she's had countless surgery but still has problems. Warm olive oil has been a godsend to her over the years, but she was always advised to get it from a chemist. Going dizzy etc can be a sign of other things so best to get checked out just in case, could be blood pressure, blood sugar, even lack of iron. Orf to the vet with you, hope you get better soon x

I had a friend who had a similar problem. When she finally got it checked out, it turned out to be creepy crawlies alive in her ear.:|

Hi Dodgy,

 

Sounds in your ear/s could be where there is a build up of wax or shifting of wax with lots of nose blowing!

As above olive oil drops especially overnight should relieve the pressure and the sounds you can hear.

 

Dizzy spells could be something further in the ear throwing you off balance.

If it's not relieved with the olive oil drops after at least a few days go and get an MOT at the Dr's.

 

Good luck x
