    • 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!

Having received,

out of the blue,

a fine from Highview parking in November 2013,


I emailed them back the following...

I am furious to receive this letter..

I am a law abiding, senior citizen and always park and pay correctly...


There were 3 adults and a small child in the car.

.We all are astounded that you have the cheek to send us this bill...


The time clocked on us entering the site, does not take into account the 5 or 6 minutes after that,

trying to find an 'all day' parking space in the underground part of the car park.


.We could not find anywhere.


We waited a few minutes for a Lady to pack her car with her shopping,

hoping to take her spot,

but she then said she was not going so we had wasted all that time..


.and then, emerging up to the ground level parking,

there was still no where empty..


We finally saw a spot near some rubbish but again had to wait for a young couple with a pushchair

to get out of their car and shut their doors before we could park next to them...


When we were all ready to go, with my little great granddaughter in her pram,

I went and bought a 3 hour parking ticket.

..You should have taken the time from that ticket, not when we entered the site.


.There must have been at least 12 or 13 minutes of wasted time.


In fact, we nearly went to another car park as we were fed up with waiting to find a spare spot.


Please bear in mind, there were 3 adults in this car and we all know the truth.

.We did pay for all our parking time and in fact, were back at the car about 4 minutes early...


Please take all this into account and do the correct thing in cancelling this charge.


I have no intention of paying something that is so unjust.

We have used this car park many times before with no trouble at all.



I await your reply..


I am still getting more letters with the price going up.


I do not know who owns the land where the car park is....


..What should I do.


This is such a worry as I am not used to being treated like this...

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

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..


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

dx100uk; If OP has the above that will be a first !!!


That's a "Typo" I will never forget. No offence intended and none taken I trust. Think about it.

I'm still laughing.

Hi and welcome to CAG


Highview are a private parking company and their 'invoice' has no affect on you. It is not a fine that can only be issued by authorised bodies (such as the council)


You have received an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) invoice and although you appealed by email, they will (in all likelihood ) reject your appeal as it is not in their interest to do so as they would lose profit (their main purpose for them) Once the appeal is rejected, they should give you the POPLA code to take it further.


Ensure that you do appeal as this will cost Highway and not you. I see POPLA dismissing this.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

This only goes to prove that the ANPR is not fit for purpose so you should write back to th parking company that you had paid the prescribed fee for your parking and that the parking element of your visit to the premises was not in breaqch of contract but the method of accounting for your visit is a breach of the terms you agreed to in paying the fee. You thereforedemand that they cancel their erroneous demand for the alleged breach as it didnt occur.

they are then obliged to respond to you and tell you if your appeal against their (corrupt) charge has been allowed or rejected. If they reject your appeal then they must provide you with code so you may appeal to POPLA. When you do thsi come back here and get advice on futher points to add to the formal appeal that have proved successful in every case as Highview are on a hiding to nothing unless they can prove the impossible (and obviously they cant)
