    • The court will probably tell you to submit an application.....but that involves a fee of £100...its their error so you shouldn't be required to. Because your DQ has not been processed ...its simply been overlooked and placed at the claimants venue.....which is incorrect..speak to the court.

    • 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 was caught in M&S

they called the police and the checked my entire bag

he found the stuff which i was stolen from M&S

 

.And they are asking for the recepiet of other stuff which was not found.

 

I accepted my fault with guilty and shame.

stuff is from other different store.

 

they have told me to sign a Simple Caution because i donot have the photo id because of (Dependent visa).

Now i am feeling so rediculous i cannot be able to tell this whole story to my family.

 

I want to know how it will effect to my visa processing.

 

And also i have read on different website that i would get a RLP letter to pay the penality

however they have taken back all the stuff with them.

 

want to know getting RLP letter

 

what time it will take because my visa is near around of expiring.

 

I think i stole of about 70-80 pound so how much i would have to pay.

Please help me out I caanot be able to resist it.

In future i will try not to come in UK because its my Dependent visa for 1 year.i am so ashamed off.

i think when i will apply for extension i have to mention this Simple Caution given by police in Visa application which i cannt do bacause of dependency.

I have to live here for 3 more months want to know would the police will disturb me any more at my home.

 

The Simple Caution which police has given to me there is 1 clause included:

I understand that the simple caution may not preclude a subsequent prosecution and that it will not preclude a civil action by an aggrieved party.

If there are any victims as a result of these offence ,they might still take civil action me and the police might give my name and address.

 

This is the reason I am so scared i am new for here in UK.

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

You won't have to pay RLP, it's the police who deal with shoplifting. Are you expecting to hear more from them [the police] please?

 

If that's your real name, please hit the black triangle at the bottom left of your post and report it to the site team. Tell them you need a name change at what you would like to change it to.

 

My best, HB

Illegitimi non carborundum

Ignore RLP. Their involvement would be at most a civil legal matter, not criminal.

 

The problem you may face is that a Penalty Notice for Disorder (PND) isn't a conviction, but those for "retail theft" still get recorded on the Police National Computer (PNC)

 

https://www.gov.uk/penalty-notices-for-disorder-pnd

 

"No admission of guilt is required, and by paying the penalty, a recipient discharges liability for conviction for the offence. However, PNDs issued for offences such as retail theft, criminal damage, cannabis possession and being drunk and disorderly are recorded on the police national computer (PNC)"

 

So, you don't have a conviction, but if, during an immigration process you are asked: " Have you engaged in any other activities which might indicate that you may not be considered a person of good character?", or equivalent, you take a risk not declaring the PND

 

A PND might not be a bar to a visa, but not declaring it and them finding it on the PNC might well be an issue!

correct, security have no legal power to conduct these actions, and only the police are abled to do so..

 

I would be worried if security had the ability to do this, considering it clearly shows most security cant even perform their own duties lol
