    • Sorry, but we need to see the entire claim form in PDF. Scanned. I'm particularly interested to see the description of the parties. Also, I notice that you said that you would provide further details of your claim. This was unnecessary – and probably you shouldn't have done it. Have you sent them something now?

    • Here is my claim:   Particulars of Claim I posted the Item at a collection point which I was provided the following tracking number: REDACTED The tracking did not update past the point it was collected from this shop, and I had flagged this up from the 6th. PackLink have offered compensation amounting to £25 which I have refused. They do agree that the parcel is indeed lost, but are not willing to payout the value of which the item sold for. PackLink have refunded me the cost of the label which amounted to £7.08 There is a packlink reference number for this case, which is: REDACTED In essence, PackLink admit they are at fault, but are not willing to compensate me for the full value of the item at its sold price.

    • Thanks for your reply, yes they got the items back undamaged.    The police got of to sign the recorded warning but the man in tesco didn't have me sign anything, he just took my name and address,  didn't ask any other questions or say anything about a "fine"   Was just a one off.  I had just lost and buried my 21 year old nephew.  So really wasn't in right frame of mind. Deffo wont be doing that again.  Nearly 30, with a clean record up till now so was a big shock for some stupid items that I had the money to actually pay for.     I'm currently in the processes of being refereed to a therapist. To try and help.    I'll make sure that I update this if I recieve any more letters from them and I'll make sure to keep them.

    • 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!

Dear Dell Customer care ,

On 27th May,2013 I bought a "DELL INSPIRON 5521 Base (Service Tag : xxxxxxxxxx , Express Service Code : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)" at Peterborough,United Kingdom .

Unfortunately, your product has not performed well since the very beginning . I am disappointed because I had to replace my faulty hard disk within 4 month of purchasing the laptop . Now before completion of 1 year , the LCD screen has turned into white and I am not being able to see anything on the screen.

I have already communicated the same to the customer support centre of Dell care . Please note, my Laptop is still under warranty period . The damage caused by the electronic failure and not caused by any external pressure , still the Dell customer support centre still wants a fine of amount £130 for the repairing of the LCD screen .

To resolve the problem, I would appreciate if you kindly repair the LCD screen without any fine considering that the laptop is still under warranty period OR refund the entire money to my HSBC bank account as I do not want to face any other problem with the laptop. Enclosed are copies of my records : Order confirmation .

I look forward to your reply and a resolution to my problem and will wait until 17th April before seeking help from a consumer protection agency or the Better Business Bureau. Please contact me at the below address or by phone :

Ph no :

Sincerely,

xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Kundu

 

Why did you replace the hard disk, when the product was under warranty?

Hi porkyp1g ,

 

The top most part of the laptop is white and also some black spots are also coming on the screen . And how can I invalidate the terms by replacing the hard disk ? It was within warranty period.

Hi rebel11 ,

 

I bought the product on 27 th May 2013 and now it is 24th April ,2014 . So it is still under the 1 year warranty coverage .

I replaced the Hard disk , as it was damaged . The media part of the hard disk became corrupted . So I have made a call to the DELL and they have replaced the Hard disk . I replaced it on around December , 2013

I am not able to see anything on my screen now. It is totally unusable now . Please suggest me what to do now .

I've highlighted two sentenced below, they have two different meanings, both can't be correct, so which one is correct?

connect a ex monitor then have a look at your hardware drivers!

 

 

Oh no, not the driver devil. No matter what the problem, no matter where it's posted, someone always comes up and says you need to update your drivers.

 

 

I've got a crack in my screen, will that be due to the drivers :)

Agree that for physical damage it is unlikely the drivers. (Unless it got damaged in a car crash!, but then it is a different sort of driver)

 

However, sometimes it IS the drivers for a non-damage fault : so it isn't wrong to exclude them. Connecting up an external screen will also help identify where in the "video path " the problem is : if the problem is also present the same on an external screen think of the video card, if absent on the external screen the video card is OK, and the issue (driver or physical) lies with the laptop screen.

Hi sourav

 

You could transfer the Warranty, from the country where you purchased the laptop to your resident country. It will make it a lot easier for you to deal with this matter.

 

As long as replacing the hard disk hasn't caused your present problem you should still be covered, as long as their Terms and Conditions don't say other wise.

Thanks rebel11 for your suggestion .

 

Actually , the laptop is with my wife and she is in UK now. So I can only transfer the warranty once she is back . However, me and my wife have discussed with the DELL technical support staff several time . Each time time they are reluctant to help us and demanding some more money . Last they have demanded £150 for the LCD screen . I am getting really irritated . The laptop is totally unusable now and she has to sit idle .

 

I think I will have to wait till the warranty period is over and have to pay the penalty price. At least we can use it . :(

might sound silly but black spots on lcd, white above them

 

sounds like me to possible internal damage to lcd, i know it isnt what you wanted to hear but having seen several hundred cracked screens a year it is what i would ussually describe it as

 

is it possible to get a picture of the laptop it would help us be able to say a little more definatly

 

if its pure white, it might be a loose cable - it happens

if its pure white but after a few seconds black spots come and go then i would suggest graphics on the mbd is dead

 

i really really really doubt drivers, if it was drivers you would still see the bios splash screen and loading screens with no issue
