    • i am not aware of any refunds being issued retrospectivity for years when you could have attained free road tax but simply didn't.   you will however gain a refund of any road tax already paid this year backdated to the start of the month you submit now. don't forget you will need the certificate of entitlement number when applying now and keep that certificate safe as you will need it each year.
    • thats quite interesting, as they are giving you a greater int rate before 1993, i am unaware of anything special about that date concerning statutory int , but it means more money for you, so i wouldn't worry yes the spreadsheet is correct.   it runs till the day they settle.   have they actually given a fixed figure for the 15% period, if so, add that the the 'current' spreadsheet result and that should equal what they should be refunding.... does it match?   dx  
    • I was recently given an upgrading of mobility to enhanced estrangement to pay.I was not aware of had indeed been informed that over the last 3 years I should have only paid 50 % of normal rft any chance of a refund of the overpaid duty  Cheers
    • great so everything sort of matches now a meter with no flat number and one not for your number.   now simply write to EON. i doubt your usage will be that dissimilar to a like flat so you might even get a credit balance   dx  
    • threads merged.   going by your original thread the debt was sold around mar/apr 2017 so a default would have been registered by LLoyds upon sale when a debt is sold the name if the OC is replaced by that of the debt buyer   so everything to me sounds ok the defaulted date is of that time  and the whole account will vanish on the defaults 6th birthday.   what anyone put post that can't harm you further because they are not allowed to change a defaulted date subsequent calendar markers are irrelevant and can't hurt you file  further.

    • 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!

I recently came in to possession of a digital file which I printed with a view of selling copies. I have received an email stating that there is a copyright on the file and that the "theft" of the file is being investigated with a view of court proceedings being issued and to discover the identity of the person being found out. What do I do???

I think we need to know what the digital file is and how you came to have it to be able to help.

Agree. Is this anything to do with the company suing Facebook users for sharing something for which they had copyright. ? There was a press article in the last few days about this, but I cannot remember what the copyright material was.

We could do with some help from you.

It is a copy of a script that came our way because we was asked to print it for someone else

 

Think you need to get shot of this, so you can reply that you do not have it in your possession.

 

Tell the person who gave it to you, that you will not have anything to do with it, as you will not print anything that is owned by a copyright holder without their permission.

 

Hopefully that should be the end of the matter.

We already printed 3 copies which they did not collect for whatever reason. So we decided to sell them on a crappy website we set up. The owner of the original copy has been in touch to state that they are investigating the theft of the file, which was obviously given out in the first place for someone to print.

Suggest that you take down the website urgently or remove anything that relates to the copyrighted material.

 

You could stitch up the person who passed you the copyrighted materials, by writing back offering to provide them with the details of the person who passed on the materials to you. Although I suspect that they know this already, hence the printed copies not being picked up. You could say that you were not made aware by this person that they were not acting on behalf of the copyright holder and have not seen any details of the copyright.

 

Think you need to cooperate with the copyright holder as much as you can and take any actions needed to mitigate against the actions you have taken so far in breach of the copyright.

Based upon the foregoing, I would advise and suggest that you are an innocent third party caught up in the wrongdoings of another, therefore, as has been advised by Uncle, you ought to remove the questioned material described as a “theft” from your website without any further delay and until you hear that the matter has been resolved between the parties who are in dispute over the same (my emphasis added).

Kind regards

You have no right to print and sell the copyrighted script without permission of the copyright holder.

 

I would apologise and return the digital file and the 3 printed copies to the copyright holder and remove them from your website.

  • 4 weeks later...

I worked for a printers that were given a file to print for a client. This client in turn received the file under the impression that they were the printers and were printing it themselves but they are just a middle man and gave the file out to the company I worked for.

 

I left the company but had copies of all files. I was not under any contract and no stipulation had been placed on artwork files. I came across the file in question and printed a couple off with a view of making some money on them.

 

There is no copyright detailed on the file itself. As soon as it came to light that it was copyrighted the copies were withdrawn from sale and destroyed. None were sold.

 

The original company that had ownership of the file are now suing the middleman that gave the file to the company I worked for. They are in turn looking into the company I worked for to see how the copies got out.

 

What can happen to me and what do I need to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I find it difficult to understand exactly what has gone on here. But it sounds like the item was some of script, which would legally be subject to copyright whether or not that was mentioned. Correct me if I'm wrong but it doesn't sound like you were not entitled to make copies and certainly weren't entitled to sell it yourself for financial gain. It sounds like you have put your old employer in breach of contract with its client, and may also have personally breached copyright after you left their employment.

 

 

If you have breached copyright, then you will most likely be liable to disgorge the profit you have made and/or compensate the copyright owner for loss it has suffered. However I think you should sit tight until you hear anything more concrete. Unless you have made a lot of money or cost them a lot of money its unlikely that there would be any meaningful action.
