I have just spent several long minutes speaking to a british gas adviser and Barclays,

about a deal between yourselves and Barclays finance, regarding a boiler I had fitted two years ago...

The biggest rip off ever.

 

Not a pleasant conversation as I was being mocked and laughed at until I lost it and asked for a little respect!!

 

Big companies should know better, both big high street names and they come up with deals that are nothing short of daylight robbery.

 

I would have been better off with a Wonga loan and im being serious

 

NEVER again will i have any dealings with British gas or Barclays and I will not hesitate to relate the horror story to warn anyone else against the pitfalls of this issue

 

After 2 and half years I find I have paid £87 off a 2,660 agreement for a new boiler

£1273 was interest...

 

For every £49 I paid a month £40 of it was interest..

.I would have been paying that for the next 10 years.

 

I settled the account today and found the settlement fiqure was £2563.

 

I feel slightly ripped off .

 

Neither company gave a damn and were totally disinterested in my grievance.

Please people be aware read the small print and do not trust British Gas

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

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

ok well lets have a look

 

nothing ventured nothing gained

 

**you can post up images/letters by this method immediately..you don't need 10 posts**

.

set your default scan page size to A4 less than 300DPI [150 will do]

scan the required letters/agreements/sheets - as a picture[jpg] file

don't forget you can use a mobile phone or a digital camera too!!

'

BUT......

ENSURE: remove all pers info inc. barcodes etc

but leave all monetary figures and dates.

DO IT IN MSPAINT.EXE or any photo editing program

goto one of the many free online pdf converter websites ...

http://freejpgtopdf.com/

..

if you have multiple scans/pics

put them in a word doc FIRST and convert that to PDF

or http://www.freepdfconvert.com/

or

use www.pdfmerge.com

 

convert existing PC files to PDF [office has an installable print to PDF option]

..

it would be better to upload a multipage pdf if

you have many images too rather than many single pdfs

.

or if you have PDF as an installed printer drive use that

or use word and save as pdf

try and logically name your file so people know what it is.

though dont use full bank names or CAG in the title

What sort of loan was it the interest rate works out at about 49% based on the figures you gave above, even a bank loan wouldn't have that sort of interest rate!

 

 

And Wonga would be considerably more as I think their rate is about 20,000%
