    • as i said unsure of what this 15% is about.   the FOS/FCA clearly describe how refund calcs show have been made the their relevant sites.   p'haps at this juncture it might be better to scan up to ONE multipage PDF their refund letters  another set of eyes is always belter.   please read our upload guide carefully      
    • I wouldn't bother with emailing Virgin's CEO.   In April I started a complaint about my BB connection which they repaired quickly but charged me to repair.   I was mostly ignored or promised resolution that never happened. So I complained by email to the CEO, twice, demanding written responses. On each occasion, a lowly call centre worker called and it was obvious they knew or cared little about my actual case.   Finally I got a written reply confirming the charge was dropped but not a penny offered in compo despite the issue taking months to resolve.   Virgin don't take CEO complaints seriously.
    • Dear All,   BN, BF, HB, - Thank you for your comments.    Yes sorry, i wanted to save some time by doing that as I wanted to carry out the posting ASAP OK, I have redacted the statement and it is attached here in the PDF doc.   Its our 2nd draft and I will fine tune it tonight / tomorow.   Thank you for putting me right.    Warm regards BF   Counterclaim-1.pdf
    • So according to this calculator my refund should be £4562.96 at the 8%.   This is in line with some of the management firms calculator on-line.   I have checked their letter again and they have paid from 1 Jan 1989 - 1 Jan 1994 only. They have refunded all the insurance premiums totalling £469.50 and the interest paid on the premiums to date of £257.90.  Additional interest of £1,436.36 after tax on top of refund as compensation.  Statutory rate of 8% from 1 Apr 1993 and at 15% before that.  They have not provided a breakdown of payments from 15% - 8%.  Only below:   £  469.50 - Refund of PPI premiums paid £  257.90 - Refund of interest charge on the premiums paid £1,795.44 - Statutory compensation -£      0.00 - Less any previous successful claim -£      0.00 - Less any previous refunds made directly as result of this policy -£       0.00 - Less any statutory compensation already paid -£   359.08 - Deduction from any statutory compensation interest for income tax at 20% _________ £2,163.76 - Total refund due   This will be the second time I am returning their calculations.  They made a decision last year and used a wrong date as they could not read the date and made up a date then it went to the back of the queue to be recalculated.  I had already queried the refund amount with them and they have moved the date again from the 22 Jan to 1 Jan!   Are they using a different calculator/principal why the figures are so far apart?  How am I going to show them this calculation without it going to FOS and sitting there for years to be assessed?   Can I also ask how to do the 15% calculation?  Thanks so much.  
    • Hi Burma.   You've been here for a while and I have to say I'm a bit disappointed that you're PMing this to various people off the main thread.   Advice by PM isn't what we advise here and I hope that you can post up your anonymised documents very soon.   HB

    • 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!

Hello members of the consumer action group.

I have a prediciment and was wondering if any of you could shine some light on my situation as to what you would suggest i do. Here is my situation :

 

I am a door supervisor and around mid december 2011 i was working in manchester city centre. i found a carpark just behind the venue i was working at approx 23:30. the lights on the carpark were all off, the barrier was in the upright position and all bent. the machine attached to the barrier was also off. I then proceeded into the carpark. parked up and went to work. I finished at around 03:00am went to my car and drove home.

A few days before christmas i recieved a letter from parking eye detailing this parking charge notice of £60 which would in creas to £90 and then to £120 if i did not pay this. I thought it was rather odd as it did have pictures of my car ( you cannot see the driver) but no times on dates on the actual photos. the times and dates were typed above the pictures. ( lead me to think any time or date could have been typed there really?)

Anyway i looked for some advice online and was satisfied with the information i had read to just ignore them and get on with my life. I recieved two more letters with the increased charge notices and then no contact was made ever again. Until 6th feb 2012 when i recieved a phonecall from roxburgh UK about a 'personal matter' regarding parking eye. They said they had sent me letters (i have not recieved any from Roxburgh Uk) and that they needed me to give them my address for security reasons. i refused to give them any of my details.

Now they have rang me each day consecutivley since then. what should i do?

 

Any help would be much appreciated,

 

Kind Regards,

 

Martin Jarvis

Keep an eye on your credit file. Continue to ignore Roxbugh. Deal with PE if you want but read this forum carefully and also the parking charge case involving Parking Eye which is published on the CAGMag

They cannot affect your credit rating without a CCJ, and they can't get one of those without taking you to court and winning. I have more chance of winning the Euromillions. If they ring again you should inform them that the debt is denied and they should now refer the matter back to their client. Any further phone calls from them will be treated as harassment, and you are prepared to take appropriate action if necessary. DO NOT enter into a conversation with them about the parking ticket. If they try to prolong the conversation beyond you giving them the above statement then end the call. If you can record the call do so.

I wonder what is the legal position in respect of the passing of personal data from a private parking company to a DCA - or to anyone else, for that matter?

Hang on to it in case you run out of toilet paper.

 

They are chasing you for an un-enforceable debt. As previously mentioned, the only way they can legally recover this money is if they take you to court. They have a few barriers to cross before they can present a case. If they make the claim for 'breach of contract' then they first have to identify the person who entered into that contract which would be the person who parked the car. That may not be the RK (you I assume). They have no way of identifying that person unless you tell them which you have no legal obligation to do so. If they make the claim as 'trespass', then they can only claim 'losses or damages' which would equate to how much revenue they have lost by you parking there. So for example if the tariff was say £5 to park, that is what they can cliam. They cannot recover a penalty charge under current laws because they have no legal status to do so. So anything they claim above what tariff was due, will be regarded as a 'penalty' and the judge will throw out the claim.

 

Ignore any further correspendence and follow the advice given by Manxred in relation to the phone calls. I would assume given your line of work, you are not easily intimidated.

 

In the unlikely event of you receiving an officially stamped court claim doc through your door, come back an we will tell you how to proceed.

thanks bank fodder and sailorsam. You are right, im not easily intimidated at all and believe if it went to court i could win the said case or indeed as you have said, pay the initial losses ( the actual parking fee of about £7.50)

the only reason i wanted to clarify this is to make sure it wouldnt affect me getting credit in the future for example.

 

Thanks again for your help on this matter. I am very impressed with the wealth of knowledge on this forum and the speedy responses to any requests.

 

Cheers,

Martin Jarvis

As you have the time to copy that all out, read other threads headed Roxburgh and Graham White.

 

Note the use of "may" "would" "any" etc.

Nowhere are they saying what they WILL do. I can answer that - nothing, sweet FA!

Usual PPC bullcrap. These letters will have come from the exact same office as Roxburgh. Nobody called Michael Sobell works there, it's just a made up name they put on their printed letters. If they call you again, just say "I'll put you on hold", place the phone next to the TV or radio and leave it there until they hang up.

Sobell is a real person, but he doesn't work there, he simply allows Roxburghe to use his name (under the trading name of Graham White, who is also a real solicitor and who's website prominently displays a message that he has nothing to do with this awful company you are being sent letters by). Sobell is under investigation by the SRA for issuing lots and lots of letters threatening court action when in actual fact he (Roxburghe's) has no intention of ever initiating court action. Well, he did try it once, but screwed up the court papers and the claim was struck out.

I have also just had a letter from ROXBURGHE they having sent out the standard letter in relation to an unpaid parking notice and in this letter they have quoted Watteau v Fenwick (1983) a case which relates to owners and agents. (Nothing to do with Parking Enforcement} They say (Roxburghe) that in principle given the facts of that case that the Registered Keeper is responsible for the actions of the agent i.e. the driver and therefore again in principle and in the event of non disclosure the registered owner is liable for the charges. This is not withstanding that when you read other sites in relation to this case they in the main say it was a load of tosh and should have been thrown out but as yet it has not.

In the same post I had a letter stating they were passing my info to their solocitor Graham White if I did not pay.

They can quote principles and precedents all they like. None of it matters a jot in cases like this. The fact is that the contract, such as it is, is between the parking company and the driver. RK is not responsible.

 

Anything from Michael Sobell at Graham White Solicitors is sent from the same people. File under S for Shred.
