    • I'm very sorry but this is very scant information and it certainly doesn't lay out the story in the way that I asked. Also there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't identify the courier. as long as you are straight dealing and honest then it is better to bring things out in the open. we don't play secret squirrel here or get into any skulduggery. we are very pleased to help you and support you but you will have to lay things out in the open so can we can fully understand and provide us with the information that we have asked for  
    • Thank you BankFodder for the feedback and learning; here is the chronology which encapsulates the 'story'.  All parcels listed below were never delivered (for no apparent reason - the reason stated on the messages I received was that 'customer has no knowledge of purchases' ) by the courier who I'm cautious not to name in case there are legal implications for me personally. This matter is now in the Court system. I would be grateful if you could please confirm that you have seen the defence.

    • 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!

clare,

surprised you haven't heard of colin - it's colin langdale:

Colin Langdale, Senior Service Quality Officer

Arlington Business Centre

Millshaw Park Lane

Leeds LS11 0PP

 

it seems like an offer made by hsbc comes through him, thus we all know his name. and after you file your cliam, when you start dealing with dg solicitors, the most common name is:

Debbie D'Aubney

or debs as we call her - we are running a contest on babs thread to see who can come up with what debs stands for if in fact it is really a computer (like hal in 2001), not much in the way of prizes but it passes the time. come join in the fun!

Bit of re-assurance please?!!Been reading loads of threads, can't seem to find anyone at the same claim level as myself......submitted my MCOL, a few days later got a letter from 'Col' , he refers to my prem and offering partial settlement, sent a return letter declining their offer and seeking full amount. In the meantime, I've sent Debs another copy of my charges including further charges since the MCOL submission. If I don't receive a reply from either before judgement day, do i just go ahead and press the judgement button? Or am I on the homeward bound with 'Col's' partial offer?

 

Any advice welcome?;) Thanks again.

No, Id say stick at it and yes press the judgement button when their 28 days is over! But apparently they usually enter at the very last minute!

 

I think we are at simialr stages? MCOL on the 20th, acknowledged on the 23rd, charges faxed over on the 24th... no offer yet but I didnt send the LBA, just the first letter then went straight to MCOL!

westy and claire, i think you will find that if it goes to judgment day - you go the press the button and you will find you can't as dg will have filed an eleventh hour defense. then, you just wait and in a day or two after that you will receive from the court an a.q. (with a deadline of when it needs to be filed and with a little luck, you won't get near that date and so won't have to file it), also a copy of dg's defense (it is exactly the same wording on all of them - so file it under tripe), and a change of court to probably your local court (don't panic, this is all part of the process - the number of people who have gotten that far(court) is miniscule, really, really tiny and on-going and not little fish like you guys). you then have until the next deadline to file the a.q. - we'll talk you through that later if it gets that far. if you've sent your breakdown to dg - just sit tight, or if you want to claire - call them "just to make sure they received your breakdown", you've asked about calling them before - or was that the other claire - you won't hurt anything if you do, let us know what they say if you do. it's still just waiting time.

Thanks Lateralus for your prompt response, it's good to have words of encouragement. I'm just curious how mine will go now having a partial offer from 'Col'? What's intriguing with this process that everyone's claim is not consistent eh?!:roll:

the thing about the offers - it's colin (i think he is chief offer man) that is a bit inconsistant. i was the same, prelim letter, nothing, lba, you think nothing - but you file 14 days after the lba and a couple of days AFTER you file you hear from colin - it's just their slow way - and it's a puny offer (generally around 80%), i honestly don't think the bank and dg are coordinated at all (even though dg works for hsbc and is in fact part of hsbc), you are hearing from and declining an offer from the bank - when, in fact, as soon as you file - dg becomes their representative and the offers from that point come from their office. many have commented on the overlap - and some think the colin offer is in response to the mcol - it isn't - it's a slow response to your lba (where you clearly stated you were giving them 14 days - but they clearly move at their own pace), in my mind - the only reason to even respond to that slow lba offer is so they and you have a record of what's gone on if it ever were to get as far as the court. i've never heard of them actually giving that offer as a partial - when you don't take it as a full offer - it just vapourises. that offer is meant to get to you just before you file (if you are wavering and haven't done it just exactly on 14 days - it may be pretty well timed), it is meant to weed out those who are shying away from filing - and it probably works to some extent.

all this is just what i've picked up by reading loads of hsbc threads.

back to you guys - i also would like to know what they say if you call ...

"just to be sure you have received my schedule"......

good luck.

amanda, bet you won't even need that aq info - but, good girl for keeping one step ahead of the game - wish more would!

Hi all

 

Still waiting............Xmas cards are landing on my mat but I want THAT letter!! Left a message with Debs to ring me back to confirm that she's had a copy of my revised charges (charges incurred since the original list sent), still no reply.:| Will attempt to bell her tomorrow. My MCOL days are up next week, a tad stressed at the mo with organising a family Xmas party, work being MANIC, and monitoring my claim......whew!

Hello all!

I'm back on-line, had problems with my laptop and it drove me nuts!! Been trying to update myself on all the threads, so pleased that Babs got her offer, I'm just behind her on my claim. My 28 days,(22.11.06 they had their ack of service with their intention of defending) is looming, still no response even though I've responded to their partial offer. If my calculations are right, they've got until tomorrow? Yikes!! :eek: Clare1981, how are you getting on?

Well, if the deadline passes, quietly click the judgement button, don't make a fuss. Wait a day or two, then send in the baliffs. Great fun. If you make a fuss they will put in for and get a stay, this way you get all that lovely baliff fun! :-D

ok, westy, no problem. i know you've read it all, you're a good 'un.

i'm having a brainwave here - i'm pressing people to send a copy of your breakdown (yes, again!) at this point, when they defend - just to bump you up and keep you at the top of the list. send it now: try here debbiedaubney@hsbc.com or anyothername@hsbc.com (from dg). with a little: I enclose my breakdown of charges relating to claim XXXX for your information. short and sweet.

Just another quick question.....I'm due to be charged for further charges over the next couple of days.....can I include them on my revised list of charges?

 

You can only include them upto when you file the claim, After that you will need to submit a N244 to amend the claim this will cost £35 which you can not recover. The best thing to do is start another claim. Hope this helps.

Hi Livelylad......just thinking! I sent a copy of my charges to the court on the 17.11.06 and another copy to Debs on the 28.11.06. I rang her and got through to her colleague on the 12.12.06 to ask her to check if they got my copies and she would check and come back to me....still waiting! I've tried to ring again the Debs is away until the 3rd Jan! I've left another message for her colleague to ring me. Do you think I should send yet another copy of the charges?

Ok you have to go with the copy you sent when you filed MCOL. that is the amount you are claiming. As long as you sent a copy to the court and their solicitors then you will be fine.

  • 2 weeks later...

First time to log on for nearly a fortnight, managed to find an internet caff! Been having huge problems with my internet provider beginning with the word A!!! Had massive row with them this morning, need to find another one! Anyway, let off steam now..............my current position is - had offer from DG just before Xmas which I've accepted last week, sent my response to DG recorded delivery. Nothing in the post this morning, my AQ is due on the 7th Jan, will hang on till Thurs to submit. Left message with DG to contact me this morning with a view of finding out how long will it be before I get my well earned dosh!! Still awaiting a response. :| The end of the tunnel is nearly there?!!!

i think you should contact the court - tell them that an offer has been made and accepted and you are waiting for your money - ask them to delay the filing date for the aq.
