    • I have an interesting thought and one that I wondered if people had any advice.   I work within a Support Environment assisting customers with issues on their Telecoms based products. B2B.  Broadband, Phone Lines,  Mobile Apps. Help companies stay connected.    Yesterday I had a phone call with a customer, They had sent in a request to action next day by 4PM.  They called yesterday to reach me to query as they hadnt recieved an email confirming it would be done. We send emails saying "Thank you for getting in contact your case ref is xxxx" But nothing Human.    I answer the phone, check the case - Tell him its been allocated and will be dealt with by an engineer accordingly.  He asks for a timeframe and i explain that they will be completed accordingly by the time he has requested - 4PM.  Essentially the call isnt anything special - Just try to explain it will be dealt with.    Customer hangs up. Calls back instantly 10 mins later and asks the same question again in which we get a notification accordingly.  I pick it up and email to confirm if will be done.    The response - "I recieved a cold response and didnt feel very welcome over the phone.  "I am disappointed in the attitude from the call"   Yes we all get customers like that....    ----------------------------------------   Ill be honest - I am quite direct in my approach in life but its just a personality thing...  But the reason for the thread is this...    Is this a warning sign that I have run my course with the Telco Industry? Im consistently having these issues and it feels like my brain cant take much more of these people. Part of the reason these days that im miserable isnt because of COVID but because of people crushing my spirit and sense of humour... Should it be time i look for a new career path? Im early 30s. Is it too late?   FKO
    • Is the seller of the wheels a private seller or a commercial seller? It seems to me that the responsibility lies with the seller. How much are we talking about here in terms of wasted delivery fees?
    • I think that dealing with Amazon by written messages is going to be a frustrating business and almost impossible. They aren't used to this kind of thing at all and I think you will have a lot of difficulty managing to get your letters read by somebody in the right department with the right authority. I think it will be a very long winded business. I think you are going to have to concentrate on trying to talk with a reasonable customer services person and make sure that you get chat records or record your calls on everything. You will probably be promised that they will get back to you – but you will have to ask for a time for responding and then you will have to ensure that that happens. There is no reason for them not to come back to you within a couple of days. I think it's going to be a hard slog. You have a reasonable chance of suing Amazon successfully. You have a better chance of seeing Hermes successfully – but for less money. I would normally suggest writing in order to get a proper paper trail – but I think that dealing with Amazon is going to be a very different kind of matter. Concentrate on quick access to the customer services but making sure you keep records of any exchanges you have. I'm not sure that we have ever had anybody sue Amazon so far and from where I am, sitting in a spectator seat – nice and comfortably – it might be a very interesting experience. Of course you are at the coalface!
    • Proportional representation would be a start, but I can't see the Conservatives voting for that now they've redrawn the constituency boundaries to suit themselves. Turkeys, Christmas and all that.
    • Sorry to hear about your problem, it's horrible when people take advantage like that.   I don't want to add to your woes, but road tax is not transferrable to a new owner so when he said 'road tax is paid so I have not to worry', he was wrong. See here:   https://www.gov.uk/sold-bought-vehicle   The last thing you need right now is another problem, so I'd either take the car off the road and make a SORN declaration or tax it as soon as possible. If you are planning on making life difficult for the seller then don't be surprised if he reports you for no tax!   I hope it all works out for you.

    • 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!

This Claim is for xxxxx the amount due under an agreement between original creditor and the defendant to provide finance and/or services and/or goods.

The debt was assigned to/purchased by Lowell Portfolia Limited on xxxxxx and noticed served pursuant to the law of property act 1925

Particulars

Re xxxxxxxA/C No *******

And the claimant claims xxxxxxx The claimant also claims interest pursuant to s69 county courticon act 1984 from xxxxxx to date at 8% per annum amounting to xxxxxx

 

You have 33 days in total (5 deemed served)so 28...14 days to acknowledge service and if defending a further 14 days to submit your defence.

 

Send your CPR 31.14 for :-

 

Agreement

Notice of Assignment

Follow your time line its important to acknowledge by the date stated.

 

Regards

 

Andy

So you haven't received a CCJ, you have received a claim form.

 

You have a strict time line to adhere to as follows.

 

Date of issue = 4/10...add 5 for service = 9th. Then add 14 to acknowledge = 23rd and then another 14 to file a defence ( if that is what you want to do) which takes you to 6th November.

 

Can you type up the Particulars of Claim verbatim please but leaving out any personal identifiers and round the figures to something different to the actual ones.

 

This will help the legal guys when they get here.

Take a read here mark I assume you have registered to use MCOL? Yes you defend all.

 

Do I have to use MCOL to file my response or are there any other ways I can do this?

 

MCOL is only one way of responding to a claim. If you are having problems logging in, or would prefer not to use MCOL, you can fax, email or post your response to the Court instead. If you send your response by e mail please send it to MCOL@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk and ensure you quote “Claim response” in the subject field. If you are fully admitting to the claim then the admission form should be sent to the claimant directly and not to the court.

thanks andy

have done this today as above.

i have received a letter today with the following content.

 

Dear Mrs XXXX

LOWELL PORTFOLIO 1 LTD v XXXXXX

CLAIM NO: XXXXX

UTSTANDING BALANC~ £XXXX

We write further to your letter dated 14 October 2013 requesting disclosure under Part 31 of the

Civil Procedure Rules and request for an extension.

We confirm the claim form was issued by the Northampton County Court Bulk Centre and the

Court's protocol was followed when issuing the Claimant's Particulars of Claim. Practice

Direction 7C point 1.4 (3A) eliminates the requirement to attach the documents to the Particulars

of Claim when they are issued by this Court.

We confirm that the Claim will most properly be allocated to the Small Claims Track as this is a

simple contractual matter and Part 31 of the Civil Procedure Rules will therefore not apply. We

confirm that we have nevertheless requested documentation from our client and hope to revert to

you shortly, although this will not be within seven days.

It is the original creditor's policy to issue any agreements on or around the date of the contract

and statements throughout the duration of the agreement and, in this regard, we ask you to refer to

your own records.

We confirm we are agreeable to an extension of 14 days to allow you more time to prepare and

file your defence.

Please note that we have not yet been informed that you have filed the acknowledgement of

service. As you will be aware a Claim was issued in this matter on 3 October 2013. Please

respond to the Claim using the Response Pack provided by the Court. You should comply with

the deadlines outlined by the Court in order to avoid a Default Judgment being entered against

you.

We recommend you seek independent legal advice

Yours sincerely

BRYAN CARTER

 

can you now advise the next step please

thanks andy have done this today as above. Excellent

 

 

i have received a letter today with the following content. Ah Uncle Brian standard templated response to a CPR 31.14 request

 

Dear Mrs XXXX

LOWELL PORTFOLIO 1 LTD v XXXXXX

CLAIM NO: XXXXX

UTSTANDING BALANC~ £XXXX

 

We write further to your letter dated 14 October 2013 requesting disclosure under Part 31 of the

Civil Procedure Rules and request for an extension.

We confirm the claim form was issued by the Northampton County Court Bulk Centre and the

Court's protocol was followed when issuing the Claimant's Particulars of Claim. Practice

Direction 7C point 1.4 (3A) eliminates the requirement to attach the documents to the Particulars

of Claim when they are issued by this Court. No one has questioned that

 

We confirm that the Claim will most properly be allocated to the Small Claims Track as this is a

simple contractual matter and Part 31 of the Civil Procedure Rules will therefore not apply. But not allocated yet so CPR 31.14 does apply

 

We confirm that we have nevertheless requested documentation from our client and hope to revert to you shortly, although this will not be within seven days. So why bother stating the above?

 

It is the original creditor's policy to issue any agreements on or around the date of the contract and statements throughout the duration of the agreement and, in this regard, we ask you to refer to

your own records. But we are asking again for them because the cat ate them and your claim relies upon them so you will need them also

 

We confirm we are agreeable to an extension of 14 days to allow you more time to prepare and file your defence. CPR 15.5 is 28 days not an extra 14 so ring him back and tell him you want conformation of 28

 

Please note that we have not yet been informed that you have filed the acknowledgement of service.Check your MCOL screen As you will be aware a Claim was issued in this matter on 3 October 2013. Please

respond to the Claim using the Response Pack provided by the Court.No thanks would rather use MCOL You should comply with the deadlines outlined by the Court in order to avoid a Default Judgment being entered against

you.We will we assure you

 

We recommend you seek independent legal advice. Not as much as you need to:madgrin:

Yours sincerely

BRYAN CARTER
