    • I have not used a comparison site for some time now... Do they really pass your info on? When it says "we sometimes use your information for third parties to make your life better..."  Basically we just sell your data to anyone who wants it?! 
    • Well who hasn't had a few debts passed on eh?!  And who really wants to give the light of day to any of these scumbags. I accumulated 35+ yellow tickets NTK when parking at my shop premises and they have definitely ben passed on now, not that I care, because in my opinion they should never have been granted access to patrol that car park. 
    • I've asked you a number of questions in my post and you haven't addressed them. Please would you do this. It's a bit difficult having to chase people for answers all the time   Just to add to my original doom and gloom scenario, even if the vehicle is returned to you and you accept it – if it happens to you have received any parking fines or anything else during the period which it has been out of your possession, then you could also be challenged for that. If the purchaser does contact you again and you eventually decide to accept the return of the vehicle, I certainly wouldn't do it without having first ascertained the name and address of the purchaser – and verified this by some evidence – and also get a signed statement that they were indeed in possession of the vehicle from XXX date until XXX date. All very complicated and distasteful – but I'm afraid that this is the consequence of what your daughter has done
    • Not really. The signs have to go where they are practical. Every single yellow should have a time plate, and the motorist has to look for it - you can just say you couldn't see it. If it's there, and I assume the CEO took a photo of it, then the driver has neglected his obligation to find out what the restriction is before parking.   The only way you might be able to argue this is if the sign is next to a separate stretch of yellow line - eg, separated from the one he parked on by, say, a road junction or a parking bay. Every individual stretch of line needs its own sign.
    • You haven't told us anything about the vehicle in terms of the make model mileage – price paid et cetera. Also where was it advertised and what the advertisement say? On the basis of what you have told us, you should have no problem asserting rights whether or not you are dealing with a trader or a private seller. However it would be helpful if it was a trader – and you say that it is and that you have evidence. The problem is, whether they trade. Do they have any seizable assets? You obviously dealing with somebody who is going to be very slippery even if you get a court judgement against them. Do you know where they live? Do they and their own property? And I suppose it won't be much of a comfort to you but it may be instructive to others when I say that you have managed to acquire all this evidence – but what a shame you didn't go about this before you parted with your money rather than afterwards.

Online lender Wonga told MPs yesterday (16 January) that it has agreed a trial with a debt collection agency (DCA) that could see the business start to sell debt. Henry Raine, head of regulatory and public affairs at Wonga, confirmed to the committee of public accounts that the firm was considering selling debts to a DCA and that it has negotiated a trial with a company.

 

He was in front of the committee to discuss the effectiveness of consumer credit regulation. When asked whether Wonga sells its debts to another party, he said “we haven’t traditionally done that but we are looking to”. Raine confirmed that Wonga will notify its customers that the debt has been sold. One committee member voiced his concerns that some DCAs have “aggressive” collection practices. Raine said: “Those are still our customers and any action they take has to come through us, for the simple reason that if they mistreat our customers, it will soon become apparent.” He agreed that there should be “tight” regulation around debt collection.

 

Raine was joined by witnesses David Rees, director of legal affairs at home collections firm Provident Financial, and Mark Hannam, chairman of loan provider Fair Finance. The lenders were grilled by MPs over their business models and practices. Ian Swales, Liberal Democrat MP for Redcar, said: Some of the worst stories we hear are not necessarily companies like yours. It’s the companies that might feed off companies like yours.”

asking the question, is it more helpful to the victim...sorry customer that it goes to a DCA, with dealing with a DCA rather than Wonga, knowing a DCA has very little power? Is it Wonga getting something for the debts and washing their hands of them, so it looks better for them being able to say "we dont persue the debts, its not us guv" and shift the blame onto DCA's thus making themselves look cleaner, hoping to avoid sanction from government on maximum interest rates.....


I know my rights Mr DCA I'm with the CAG......hello hello where you gone Mr DCA8)
