    • Jack Wilkinson  His address is one of those virtual offices, ie the actual business doesn’t operate from there and nobody seems to know where his garage is. However it’s 3 The Drive, Jubilee House, Brentwood, Essex, CM13 3FR I have paid him £5000 to date He’s place is about 2.5 hours away from me, but I currently live most of the year in France. I’ll attach the only piece of written evidence that I have from him. This was supposed to have been a report on the condition of the vehicle for my court case against Yew Tree Cars, but is pretty useless to be honest. He telephoned me last week to say that he was ill with Covid, but would be back at work the following Monday and the car would be returned tomorrow (4th December 2021). I sent him a text with information that I required from him before I would accept delivery of the vehicle (£175 each way). Text is added as an image below. This morning I had a phone call from his wife, with no caller id, who said that he was very ill in hospital with Covid, but he should be out on Monday. she said that they were going to take  the car to be MOT’d (it did have a 12 month MOT on it when it was collected last January) but apparently one of the 2 turbos has gone. She said Jack was going to source a replacement (obviously from a breakers yard) and fit it for free. Then it was discovered that the entire engine has to come out to fit it, which is going to cost in the region of £2000! Obviously I have no intention of paying anymore money to this person. The call ended with her telling me that Jack would telephone me next week to discuss it. Under normal circumstances one would imagine that him getting Covid is credible, but with his track record, I just see it as another delaying tactic. The forum that I found this information on is https://www.vwt4forum.co.uk/threads/ecu-solutions-brentwood-essex-any-reviews.1776159/page-4   I’m in the situation of not knowing what work he has actually done. I have no idea whether he is telling me the truth or anything. A thought that crossed my mind, after reading people’s posts on the VW site, is that he uses his customers vehicles to take parts from for other cars and then waits until a similar car comes in to replace them. I just can’t figure out the scam here, but there definitely is one! TEXT SENT ON 26/12/2021 Dear Jack, Further to our telephone conversation yesterday, I request the following from you please: 1. A full breakdown, including receipts, for the payment made to you by bank transfer to your account named 169UK for the amount of £3000 paid on the 14/01/2021. 2. A full breakdown, including receipts, for the payment made to you by bank transfer to your account named 169UK for the amount of £2000 paid on 05/02/2021. 3. Your VAT number and address of your business premises. The car wash centre where customers are requested to deliver/collect their vehicles from is not acceptable. Neither is the ‘dummy’ office that you use at Jubilee House, Brentwood, Essex. This is not your business premises. Under UK law, it is a legal requirement for you to provide this. You advised me yesterday that my vehicle will be returned to me by the end of next week, being 03/12/21. Before accepting receipt of the vehicle, the following is required: The documents requested in points 1-3, to be sent by email to **************@gmail.com  A photograph of the current mileage. A video of the exterior and interior of the vehicle. Evidence that the vehicle is running as it should be. 12 months MOT certificate. Warranty documentation for the replacement gearbox dated from 03/12/2021, again to be sent by email, before receipt of the vehicle will be accepted. Yours sincerely,   Trying to upload the photo of the document  that he sent to me by text (jpeg) but it won’t let me.

Hi

 

Any advice welcomed please.

 

I took out a finance agreement to purchase car some 42 months ago there is still18 months to run.

 

The car is not well and ideally I would like to be rid of it.

 

The interest rate is also phenomenally high.

 

I was desperate for a car at time I purchased and was grateful of any finance at the time.

 

I was advised by a friend that if I had paid over 50% of agreement off I could cancel under the CCA 1974 s99.

 

I have read the agreement and it states the car is the security and that the agreement is not cancellable under the CCA 1974.

 

I have looked at a few posts and most seem to indicate car finance is cancellable. Now not sure at all.

 

I would be grateful of any advice please.

The paperwork states

" Credit Agreement Regulated by CCA 1974"

 

The interest rate is 44% and is reason I really want to get out of it together with car not being too well.

 

Under key information it states not cancellable under CCA 1974.

 

States the agreement is secured as against the car.

convert existing PC files to PDF [office has an installable print to PDF option]

..

goto one of the many free online pdf converter websites [http://docupub.com/pdfconvert/]

it would be better to upload a multipage pdf if

you have many images too rather than many single pdfs

.

or if you have PDF as an installed printer drive use that

or use word and save as pdf

try and logically name your file so people know what it is.

Thanks for offering to look at the papers. I have struggled most of the day to get these copied and uplifted to the forum.

 

Some will not upload and keep getting rejected by uploader.

 

Hopefully these will at least give some indication of the agreement.

 

I have noticed the garage and finance company appear to have same HQ address. ACF Manchester seem to have same address as the Funding Corporation. Puuzzled ??

I would like to be able to get out of this finance agreement if at all possible:-

 

1. car is wearing out and ideally would like to replace it

2. the interest rate is phenomenal

3. I have paid 42 months now out of 60 month term

 

Any help as to how I can get out would be appreciated.

so this is a secured loan, by a bill of sale by the funding corp.

 

are you aware if the bill of sale has been registered?

 

with the courts?

 

No Independant signature

No Independant Witness

Not Registered With The High Court In 7 Days

 

Credit Agreement Details Not On The Bill Of Sale

 

all these can be used to negate the deal.

I will try and work out how to load the last 2 pages., the 3 remaining pages are letter 9.6.06 basically giving agreement number and confirming my bank details. Also confirms finance is secure against car. p1 of credit agreement is a New and Used Vehicle Order form - states "I agree to purchase from you subject to T & Cs undermentioned vehicle...... vehicle price £5000. I saw vehicle and signed docs at there office where car was on same day on 5/6/09.

Car issues are just pure age related wear and tear. I need reliable car for my job which is now only accessible by car not public transport.

 

I am unaware if agreement was registered with Court. I would think not. This is the first mention I have heard of this, No independent signature at all just salesman and me there. I think garage / showroom ACF is owned by The Funding Corporation as both appear to have same registered office in Chester.

 

Will have another try to upload these outstanding docs.

 

Thanks for your help in putting my docs together.

I did give Funding Corporation a call for early settlement figure and was given £2859.80. I have made 42 payments of just a few pence over £181 pm so this amount seems higher than I would have anticipated.

 

Any advice welcommed please

Definitely a loan agreement and not HP. We got caught the same way but interest was a lot lower. We sold the car and paid the balance outstanding. Not sure if you can do this?

I was never made aware that this credit agreement ws of a type (BOS) that needed to be stamped by the High Court. I have only realised that today having read dx100uk's comments and threads on BOS on CAG threads. I just assummed that it was a simple car / hp finance agreement I had.

 

I called The Funding Corporation today and asked for the High Court Stamp refernce which they gave me. I have never seen any paperwork from them at all referring to this stamp or a seen a document bearing it.

 

Very surprised at all the information I am now getting and reading on CAG re BOS in fact horrified to some extent as I say I thought this a simple car finance agreement.

 

Look forward to any further help and advice. I really just want to end this finance and car. Financially I am now in much better position than I was in 2009 when i was absolutely desperate for a set of wheels to get to work with.

Can you get a loan at a lower rate to pay the settlement amount even if it means resorting to a credit card as at least the rates will be lower?

 

I really need to replace this car as large bills looming. I am in much better financial position now than I was back in 2008/09 and can get reasonable finance to get a uptodate low mileage working car. I shall however now check what sort of finance and do homework.

 

Just shocked re finance on this I was led at time to believe it was an HP car finance agreement and never realised otherwise until I started to research replacing it.

 

Thank goodness for sites / forums like this.

Thanks for the research, not entirely sure where this info takes me or indeed whether it has any effect on the transaction. The points I note are that the company's own employee witnessed agreement and that I never received a executed copy - "The bill of sale (as a document referred to in the consumer credit agreement) must always be sent at the same time as the consumer credit agreement. A signed copy of the agreement must be sent to the consumer following execution (see CCA ss.62 & 63).

If I had received same then clearly I would have been aware of type of transaction or certainly aware enough to ask questions as to why Court registration.

 

How to take this forward now I am unsure any advice anyone
