    • I repeat, the seller has the right under the CRA to repair. That is exactly what they have offered.   The OP doesn’t even know what the fault is, you cannot simply reject if a light has appeared. OP is being completely unreasonable.   The CRA is designed to be fair to both parties, it is not one sided.         
    • I only got the car 3 weeks ago, had the car serviced as it was coming up to the service date and was advised by the garage that the Tyres were illegal so I think it’s cut and dry really. The fact is I was allowed to drive a car off the forecourt with 2 bald tyres and I was told by dealer the car had been checked and surely Tyres should have been part of the check.
    • Less than 100 miles not enough miles or time to wear the Tyres enough according to the garage. I’m more angry I could have got up to a £5000 fine and 6 points, what would the dealership responsibilities be then? 
    • If the OP follows king’s advice and then the neighbour’s roof leaks, who do you think the neighbour will blame? a) the dodgy “roofers” (who will be long gone), b) the OP for “damaging a perfectly good repair” (even if they don’t damage it, and it wasn’t a good repair!), or c) someone else   King may be technically correct, but the OP following their advice isn’t likely to end well if the neighbour is already ‘difficult’. 
    • I sent a SAR. which also provided a copy of proof of ID, last month to Northumbrian Water, and received no reply whatsoever.   After the 30 day deadline passed i sent off a complaint form to the ICO and sent a letter of claim to NW for breach of statutory duty. (As up until today they had failed to respond in any way to the request that was made)   Today i received a reply saying the my ID wasn't in the standard format and they could not accept it,   (The exact same copy of ID has not been an issue before and the exact same image was accepted perfectly fine by a previous energy company i SAR'd), and that they required i give them 2 forms of I.D, 1 from list A and from List B Along with questioning the alternative address like i mentioned above.   I wanted the request to be sent to the alternate address, as i work full time and i'm not always at my home address, i'd most likely not be in at a time when it can be delivered and can't get to the delivery office easily enough before it would be returned back undelivered. (Which i wanted to avoid happening again as this happened to the last SAR i made.) The address is my partner's address, where i regularly go and who also works from home and wouldn't have issues receiving/collecting mail.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Thank you for posting this link.

 

I particularly dislike the Wonga one which seems so jolly and cosy and friendly. Nothing like the real thing as you can see from threads on this forum. :evil:

My son was in big trouble with Wonga - I got him to phone them, & give them permission to speak to me. I told them (debt management team) he owed me heaps (true!) they froze the interest & made amicable affordable plan to come out of bank each month. I am collecting so much dirt on them all!!

We need everyone to copy and paste the link onto every other link possible..it only has 500 signatures so far! yes, nasty attractive cartoon people-so deceptive. Next time I see him, he'll sign a letter saying he owes me, & they will keep it on their record so they wont give him any more loans. Likewise the Money Shop..

I've posted a link on another payday loan thread, so hopefully some of the Caggers there will come and sign here.

 

I am glad you got Wonga sorted out. They have been really awful to some people on the forum.

 

Last year I was burgled and lost some jewellery with great sentimental value so I started visiting all the loan/buy gold companies close to me. I was absolutely staggered when waiting in one to hear a clearly very bright and obviously working young lady ask for a loan, and she confirmed that she'd had them before. She was drinking a Starbucks coffee. Why would anyone in their right mind be buying take-out coffee when they needed a payday loan? Totally crazy.

Hi tawnyowl,

 

I'll check the petitions. Thank you for reminding me.

 

I think radio advertising should be banned too. The Wonga one is just too jolly and user-friendly. It all sounds such fun that you can't ever imagine such lovely people could turn so nasty.

I agree. Not only that there are 2 radio stations that I listen to who have also ran competitions in association with a PDL.

That is outrageous. The owners of the radio stations should be ashamed of themselves.

 

What was the prize? A loan where you pay only half their usual interest?

Something even worse. They have multiple adverts running at the cinema now. Although they only seem to advertise on 12a and above.

It's ages since I've seen something 12a or above at the cinema. My cinema viewing is dictated by my nine-year-old. She'd love a payday loan. (No chance.)

I can't remember the first one because it was on a station I only listen to in the morning. The station though is very popular.

The other one is you have to guess an amount of money. You phone in, guess the amount between 2 amounts already given and win if you get it right. Obviously in this day and age its was quite popular.

I saw a new Wonga one last night. It actually implies that you can fix your own terms. I think I will phone them up and say I want to borrow £1,000 and I'll pay back £1,001 at the end of the month. That would be fixing my own terms, wouldn't it? I'm going to watch it again, and maybe see if they can be reported to ASA.

Haven't seen that one - will look out for it. We so need to get them into real trouble. They want to float on the stock market, but are waiting to see what clampdowns the Gov are going to make. Joke! we know the answer, just ban advertising etc & make them all financially unviable.

I recently had to go into the Money Shop. after speaking to them about my sons loan with them on the phone - I'd paid them money with my d card - which they had no record of, meaning my son still owed them! I took in a verified bank statement proving it, and the ref number they gave me but it still took over two hours of me being in there before they classified it as a misc. payment. I got my refund, paid a reduced amount to clear sons account ( £210 instead of 330) plus I've put in a complaint & requested compensation for my wasted time, stress etc. t.b.c...Oh, (belated reason for post lol) while in there, witnessed many customers either requesting they pay the minimum off their loan, or requesting rollover, or I heard them say they needed one to pay their bills. These were men in working clothes straight in there from work..so sad.
