    • 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!

Hi All,

 

Slightly odd question, have looked though the forum but cant seem to find anything on it.

 

if the data provided to 3rd parties about you by your credit card company is factually incorrect, are they in breach of the DPA or CCA, If so do you know what section?

 

Also who is responsible for ensuring the accruacy of the data displayed on the CRA, the supplier or the CRA?

both

 

whats the issue please

 

dx

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

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...

Capital one have supplied factually incorrect information to the CRA

Default ammount is incorrect (£1 more than settlement figure I received )

The settlement date has been supplied wrong.

 

I have contacted them, informed them of there mistake and they won't change it.

 

Also contacted the CRA who looked in to it, and capital one replied saying that "all information supplied is correct".

 

When I have evidence it's not.(bank statmebts, corrosponace from capital one).

You must take this up with the Data Controller at Cap 1 as a formal complaint send all the "evidence " you have including the screen print of the CRA file.

 

 

It's hard to see that this would be affecting your credit profile unless the settlement date is vastly incorrect.

Have Goven them 3 chances to fix this issue, which is including the wrong APR, over charging of interest. Processing data which is false.

 

Would it be unfair to skip the FOS part and take direct court action

 

 

Thanks

I think you would be best reporting to FOS as if this has to go to litigation its decision will give you some idea as to success of court action.

Hi everybody,

 

I'm after some advice regarding this hideous company.

 

Back in 2011 i received a notice to default letter, believed i paid the balance in full straight away.

 

My credit file has a default date registered for the 14.09.2011 for £314 with a settled date of the same date.

 

I never received any further correspondence from them after this point, no 'you've been defaulted' letters, nothing.

 

Apparently, I never paid this balance on that date, according to them i paid it on the 31.01.2013 (Yet my credit file has the date of the 14.08.2011).

I've contacted the CRAs telling them that the data is wrong, The response from capital one was that ' all the data is correct ', meaning the settlement date would stand?

 

It was also pointed out that the default amount was wrong, because they had over charged interest between April 2011 and April 2012 (The account was refunded this, 96pence).

 

So id like some advice on what todo as i've complained about this and its on going, but i thought id get some advice in to the following:

 

1. Reporting incorrect data to the CRAs (Dates, Amounts).

2. Overcharging interest.

 

This matter is being delt with by somebody at the 'Executive Response Center'

 

I'm looking for some advice as to if any what rules/guidelines/legislation they have broken, As i have a feeling this will be going to court,

 

Ideally id like them to remove any trace of themselves from my credit file - as they clearly cant handle my data in an accurate manner.

 

Sorry i've i have rambled,

 

R

One more thing, can you add charges once the default has been registered? Default register date on CRAs is £290, Settlement was £313, would also be worth pointing out that the credit limit was £200.

one option is to involve the ICO

also, a notice of correction of wrong info which could involve the ico eg #4 http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?323570-Default-Info

a default date should not be 'renewed'.

was the default legit in the first place seeing as you say you paid the 'arrears' in time?

some ICO default info http://www.scoronline.co.uk/files/sc...ment_final.pdf

IMO

The default wasn't correct in its entirety, it was caused by a previous late payment fee which took the card over its limit, which induced another fee and so on.

 

I paid the full balance and closed the account as soon as i received the notice of default warning letter, I was also over charged interest, surely thats got to be a breach of the CCA or something?

possibly. i think it is the ico or oft guide that says that where there is arrears/default solely due to charges then it shouldn't be. maybe see what their 'exec' comes back with, if no joy take things further?

IMO

Many thanks,

 

I have requested a SAR so will be able to see what comes back,

 

I must admit, the exec did sound like he was on work experiance, had to go away and check a lot of stuff with a co workers

Nope, no paper work at all hence the sar request, even if they did send one it would be wrong as they over charged interest for 12months. Just a complete show of incompetence from them

looking good in yr favour? in any event a formal def notice, if applicable, is required prior to any registered default as it gives the opp for any default to be remedied.

note also poss compensation re damages re credit file re an 'unlawful' default.

IMO

Well, little update.

 

SAR request came, confirms that the default was incorrectly filed (wrong amount )

 

The sting in the tail is, and I really do need some advice on this... I receieved somebody elses SAR request... I will dispose of it sercurely and call the guy, but what do I do now ??

 

To confirm , o received two sar requests, mine and somebody elses

not entirely sure, could also informally check with the ICO see what they think should do?

any event, a complaint to the creditor by you both. both should be entitled to compensation from the creditor (the ICO doesnt award comp to individuals, but they can fine and/or reprimand co's).

this incident should put cred further on the back foot!

Are you saying you had your data in full plus a 3rd parties data?

 

 

Do not dispose of it, contact the Data Controller at Capone in writing and infirm them of the serious breach of the DPA and let then arrange to retrieve the data.
