    • Hello,    Just looking for some advice on where I stand with a debt from a court fine which was passed to a bailiffs.    So basically I had a court fine which I was paying in instalments. Admittedly I missed the last couple so it went back to court who got a warrant and passed it to the bailiffs. I got a text from the bailiffs on the 12thOctober confirming this was the case. This prompted me to pay the debt straight to the court in full. I thought this was resolved (not had any experience of bailiffs previously fortunately).    I then got another text from them on Thursday stating I owed £75 to them directly. I understand this is because they took the case on and it a Notice of Enforcement fee. I contacted them Friday because I did some research and understand they can only charge the £75 if they have sent out the Notice of Enforcement by letter and I hadn’t received anything. The bailiffs said they had sent the letter out but were having some trouble attaching it to an email so would repost it (as of today still not received it).    My concern was that they had failed to send out the Notice and were editing a letter there and then. From research it was confirmed I was entitled to ask for the original proof (i.e from the post office showing date/time and address) so I asked them to send me this (I did so over the phone and sent an email). As of yet they haven’t provided this.    A bailiff has turned up today and has added £235 in fees. Can I do anything about this? I confirmed in the email that I would pay the £75 on receipt of the proof of sending.    In hindsight I should have just paid £75 I know but just wondered whether they can just add this £235 bearing in mind I have confirmed I will pay the £75 if they provide proof they did indeed send me the Notice of Enforcement?   Thanks on advance of any help

    • They've actually been behaving themselves for me, recently.  I'm re-signed with them on a variable tariff, meaning not tied in and can leave any time if they get up to their old tricks.  However something I noticed was that when accepting the tariff they actually showed in advance how they expected that annual total to be split into the 12 months.

    • 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!

Thanks Brigadier but I've done that already. Back in June. Two weeks later and they had no trace of it despite a signed for delivery.

 

I'd like to get this printed in something like the Daily Mail or BBC's Consumer Watchdog, if anyone knows the contact details I'd be very grateful.

 

 

OK send the complaint again, this is far from uncommon with Satans.

 

 

Tony Hetherington at the Mail has dealt with complaints against Satan in the past.

I do know he likes as much detail as possible, certainly worth a try.

Thankyou, I will send the story on to Tony Hetherington, I think the story on here says it all.

 

I've also just contacted BBC Watchdog and sent them the details on their website.

 

Be in touch.

 

 

Great but please send the complaint again.

Which's money expert took this to Santander's press office / CEO and yesterday I received a call and email confirming this money will NOT be taken from my account, not on the 22nd and not ever.

I will be receiving further information on Monday but I am very relieved that this is being sorted once and for all.

Unbelievable.

Thankyou Brigadier, what a long and stressful journey it's been.

 

Frightening to be persecuted by a bank that knowingly pursues innocent customers. I'm intrigued as to what was really going on here, I hope I'm told the full story.......

Further to my last post..

 

 

..Santander finally closed the 123 credit card account and touch wood..

..I've not received any more statements.

 

Hopefully that means it's finally gone.

 

 

I was paid another £150.00 compensation for the further stress and inconvenience and Which are going to feature the story shortly.

 

I was told over the telephone by Santander's chief exec's media man that the fault lay with the Visa dept

but this wasn't explained to me properly or in the final resolution letter.

 

The explanation was weak.

 

No more credit cards for me and thankyou once again Brigadier for encouraging me to fight it!
