    • he was talking about banning online shopping for banned items, but that is impossible, he banned DVD & Video games, but fails to understand Streaming, as in he doesn't realise if you buy a game, you download a copy as a data stream and save the installer to a hard drive, then install, its like streaming a film from netflix, except you save the file rather than the data is flushed when you have finished watching.  He doesn't know what he is on about. here is part of the what is essential list think its Aldi
    • Banning online sales doesn't seem to make much sense, BN. Things that might seem non-essential when you already have whatever it is can become essential when you've run out or it's broken.   How does the downloads thing work? I don't get that.

    • 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 there

 

As you can guess I've received a Charge Notice from the above and, having scoured this forum, am just concerned that legislation may have changed the 'ignore' instruction?

 

If Highview did pursue this to court I think I would have little defence - whilst I quickly checked signage on entering the car park, I didn't actually use the store so maybe clear warnings inside?

 

I have already written to Tesco as another poster found this successful.

 

I only have a couple of days to pay the 'reduced' amount if that is now the advice so any guidance much appreciated.

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Wow that was quick. Thank you. Shall ignore. Though (like others) am slightly concerned - I have just moved house and only just notified DVLA so when my Royal Mail redirection stops I wont get these letters at all - which is some ways is a blessing but in others, makes me worry about what I dont know about....

as you've read

there is at present quite a bit of 'talk' regarding 'oh you'll get a ccj by default because they'll sent it to the old ad'

 

scary but in reality, none have been seen.

 

i'll let you decide what you think about it, but its mostly from one direction......

don't know about Tesco's but it looks like aldi are upping the anti sending out court orders that's not a good sign.

 

I would post a link but i'm a newbie and i'm not going to just post crap until I get to 10 posts (what a dumb rule, I have to spam before I can help ???)

The thread is in this section and it's title is

It's not ALDI who are sending out court papers, but Parking Eye who's new legal eagle wants to make a name for herself.

The PPC has no rights in law over the land so they rely on bluff/threats and ignorance to make their claims. it is just rather annoying that this whole new court thing will get played out so often before it gets either stopped or set as case law in a higher court.

You might find this interesting reading. Highview are mentioned a lot.

Since POFA 2012 the standard advice has evolved as follows. At no point admit to being the driver. This is important

 

1. Ignore until the Notice to Keeper arrives; this should be around 30 days.

 

2. Make a "soft" appeal - and state that if the appeal is unsuccessful you wish to appeal to POPLA.

 

3. Make a "hard" appeal to POPLA.

 

Advice on these can be found around the web.

Thanks for your responses, ignored first charge have now received second for increased amount. I can't believe how quickly they are moving with this it is less than four weeks since the incident. I am assuming these charge notices are different from the notice to keeper
