    • The letter has far too much in it – some of it is not relevant – and apart from anything else, if he didn't comply with the various things that you are saying, you wouldn't know what to do about it. The best thing to do is to keep it simple.

    • Hi Everyone, hope you are all keeping well in this strange new era.   On the 17th Sept, my friend booked a delivery to send a parcel to the USA, a vintage sewing machine. The collection and delivery was booked through MyParcelDeliver.Com, and UPS was the chosen courier. They collected it about four days later.   He paid for additional insurance along with the transportation of the item, to the tune of £128.75.   He packaged the parcel very well, packed with bubble wrap and paper and also styrofoam so that the sewing machine was safe in the box. He placed some plastic wrap over this, and he then sealed the box with tape. He videoed this for the buyer, so she could see how well he had packed the item because they were both concerned about the package being well protected.   The item arrived in the USA a few days later. The buyer instantly notified my friend that the parcel packaging was damaged, showing stress from water and general mishandling, and the item was also damaged in various parts, mainly the casing and the base.   He complained to MyParcelDelivery.Com on the1st October, they responded with 'You need to contact UPS...', which he did and also the buyer contacted them and got a response on the 2nd October.   UPS informed the buyer they would like to come and take a look at the packaging and the item, and this is the last she heard from them, she has called them several times, and always they say someone will call tomorrow and no one calls. She called my friend to ask if he could call them too and chase them up, he is Italian, and though he speaks English generally well, he asked me to talk with them on his behalf because he felt they were not listening to him or that he was missing something.   I spoke with them on the 26th October, they said they had sent my friend an email about this, we checked all of his emails, junk/spam too. There is nothing in there, I asked them to resend it, but nothing has appeared despite them saying they have sent it, we know they have the correct email address because they sent a message on the 2nd confirming they are looking into the claim of a damaged package, they also said they were planning on calling the seller 'again' on the 27th, which of course never happened, which she confirmed with me on the evening of the 27th.   Now it would seem to me that MyParcelDelivery is trying to say it has nothing to do with them, despite the booking being made through them, UPS US are pretending they are doing something but have so far done nothing, and we have heard Zilch from UPS UK.   I would like, if possible, some guidance on how to go about getting this resolved because this is just not right, the agent/courier have had their money, but the seller and buyer have been the victims of poor service and damaged goods.   If anyone could point us in the right direction on how to tackle this and get some redress for this, then I would be most grateful.   Thanks and kind regards   Mr B                 pox.pdf

    • 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 everyone.

I'm new here so please be patient with me. I have been looking at various threads on this forum and found a template letter regarding "statute barred".

 

I received a letter from Transcom Worldwide saying I had an outstanding debt for £265.16 and couldn't understand what the debt was for.

 

However as the letter was to my address but in my previous name by marriage,

I responded with the template letter where I stated I did not acknowledge any debt with that company etc. etc.

 

Today I have received a letter saying the contents of my letter have been noted.

They say they confirm that this particular account does not fall under the Limitation Act 1980 and therefore is not statute barred!!

 

They then go on to ask me to forward my payment proposals!

 

Heeeelp! Does anyone know what my next course of action should be please?

 

Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.

Of course it falls under the Limitations Act. If there is any clear period of six years (five in Scotland) where you didn't acknowledge the debt or make a payment.

 

They are in breach of OFT guidelines and you should make a complaint to your local Trading Standards & the OFT.

Email your local trading standards and explain what has happened.

 

I'm sorry there isn't a template as every complaint is different.

Dear Ms. Woodward,

 

I am in receipt of your letter date xx xx xxxx regarding the debt for £xxx.xxx which you allege is owed by me in respect of a SimplyBe account, please note I do not acknowledge any debt to Transcom OR any company you may claim to represent.

 

In the letter received on xx xx xxxx your company refutes my statement that the alleged debt is statute barred under the Limitation Act 1980, you fail to give any explanation for that statement, therefor I state again the alleged debt is staute barred and I will not make payment.

 

I have had the oppurtunity to research this matter and have been alerted to many more incidents similar to this regarding the accounts of the JD Williams group of companies one has to query how Transcom World Wide knows that all of these accounts are not statute barred your explanation should be most interesting.

 

Your reply within 7 days would be appreciated.

 

RD this.

I sent an email to my local Trading Standards office and they have told me to contact the Citizens Advice Bureau? Surely if I contact CAB they will only tell me to report to Trading Standards. I'm definately confused.com!

I received a response to this letter this morning and their reply was that they have queried the account with their client and are awaiting their response in regards to my dispute/enquiry. they will contact me as soon as they receive a reply!

 

Yet their previous letter said they can confirm that the account is not statute barred.

 

Me thinks this means they're trying to pass the buck.

 

What do you say?

Developments here with Transcom and Motor Mile over the weekend, I have already had sight of responses from Transcom anf MMF received over the weekend.

 

Scenario Letter received from Transcom WWltd On Friday AM Quote:

 

''ATTENTION''

 

''We write in response to your recent letter ''of which the contents have been noted''??.

 

''We have received a letter from (Brig).In order to to deal with your represntative regarding your finanacial affairs, a letter of authority must be forwarded immediately'' '( letter of authority was attache to the letter sent, e-mail recd. from Transcom last Thursday acknoledging receipt of authority??)

''WE can confirm that this account does not fall under the Limitations Act 1980 and is therefore is not statute barred''. (How the hell do they know???)

''We have contacted our client and requested proof of this debt and as soon as they come back to us we shall contact you''

 

etc:

 

Now forward to Saturday am.

 

Letter received from MMF.

 

''Thank you for your letter regarding your account with us'' (what account no NOA received?).

I understand your concern to be that the outstanding debt ( what debt, no proof received?)

'' Having now had the opportunity to review our records I can explain that the debt was originally with JD Williams and we purchased the deb in July 2012'' I can also advise that the debt is ALSO STATUTE BARRED and therefore we have closed our file'':-D

(details recalled from transcom etc.)

There is more that here that I have been asked to keep confidential!!

Any Cagger who has received similar correspondence, please contact me by PM or post on your thread, there are implications here for a major complaint to the regulatory authorities regarding the conduct of both companies.

Brig.

surely this is acknowledging the debt?

 

do i sign can i print the letter or hand write it

 

I will of course send it signed for to the head of collections they are threatening me with a bailiff:mad2:

NO NO the SB letter does not acknowldege the debt in any way!!!

I have reported some of these ''not SB letters to the debt collection team at the OFT today.

 

Send this RD to Sarah Woodward.

 

Ref:xxxxxxxxxxx

 

Dear Ms Woodward,

 

I refer to your companys' letter dated xx xx xxxx inwhich you threaten bailiff action as no judgement is in place I find this threat rather ridiculous, as I DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE any debt to TWW (UK) Ltd or any company you may claim to represent.

 

I have researched my credit history and can confirm that any such alleged debt is STATUTE BARRED and I will not therefore make any payment or offer of payment now or in the future in regard to the alleged debt.

 

I am fully aware of the OFT Guidance updated November 2012 and the sections regardding the pursuit of statute barred debt.

 

I must remind you that if you refute this claim the onus of proof lies entirely with TWW(UK) Ltd to show unequivical proof that the allged debt is not statute barred.

 

This letter IS NOT AN ADMISSION OF ANY LIABILITY.

 

Send it there is no harm nothing to restart bthe 6 year clock or admit liability,other wise it will drag on for ever.
