    • @dx100ukIt just moved less than decimals because we briefly used hot water, while the other one increased by 3m^3.   So, how should I proceed? Do I just call EON and make them aware? How will the charge or refund me if they do not know the initial number for the meter (the one 1 year ago in the meter I should have been reading)?   Thanks!
    • Alright great appreciate the quick response/advice will send it asap, when you say keep it very wide do you mean don't limit this part of the SAR?   "Please note that I require disclosure of any personal data which you hold on me for the entire period of my dealings with you."   Will update when I hear something back,   Thanks.

    • 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!

Just thought I'd post this so that everyone can have a giggle.


Back in April of this year, I received a Parking Charge Notice from Highview (as NTK). I ignored it.


Then I got another, and I ignored that too. Then another. Guess what :|



Then it all got serious lol. I got a letter (threat) from Debt Recovery Plus ltd, that if I didn't pay £149.99 they'd instruct their clients to take me to court. I ignored it.


Then another letter arrived, which I also ignored.


So.. This morning, I get yet another letter, but I decided to reply to this one via email.



Dear Sirs.


Thank you for your most gracious offer of a reduced payment of £120.00. I have however decided to decline.


I have not, up until now, responded to any of your (or your clients) letters and threats of court action, as your client has no case, and therefore, I have no case to answer.


Please instruct your clients to proceed with court action, where I will be delighted to humiliate them in front of the judge.



The basis of my defence is that while the vehicle was there on the day in question, as mentioned on the original Parking Charge Notice. It was not there for the time(s) as noted on the same.


I took my partner to work that day, she works in Tesco's (at Yate Shopping Centre), and then took the vehicle home with me as I and it, had an appointment that morning for its annual MOT inspection. After dropping her at the door of Tesco, I went into the garage (attached to the site) to fill up with fuel and then dropped the vehicle off at a garage in XXX, Bristol (some 7 miles away from Yate and the car park in question) for it's MOT. It passed by the way. See below and/or attachment.




The letter continued.


If your client can come up with a way that a vehicle can be in two places at the same time, I'd be interested in hearing their theories, as I am sure, would the entire worlds scientific community.


Your clients should take a careful look at their site plan, and study the lines of sight of the ANPR camera equipment that they have installed there, I have, I used to fit CCTV equipment for a living. If they need any advice I'd be delighted to assist, I charge a very reasonable hourly rate.


They will notice that the cameras DO NOT cover the entrance to the petrol station forecourt. And whilst they do cover the exit of the same, they would not be able to read the index of a vehicle if there happened to be another vehicle directly behind it!


When I dropped my partner off, I was on site no longer than 15 minutes. And then I returned at lunch time to pick her up, which is when your clients ANPR cameras detected my vehicle leaving the site.


I have been supplied no photographic evidence of any kind that proves that the vehicle was on site for the entire period. In fact, there can be no such evidence, as the vehicle wasn't there!


I look forward to seeing see them in court, where I too shall be making an application to recover my costs in defending this action.


I would humbly suggest that you instruct your client to wind their necks in.




I wonder what they'll send me next :smile:

In fact, they're probably just waffling and can be quite safely and completely ignored as you wish.

Dont forget, DR+ will file this in the bin and not say a thing to their clients as they are paid to send out threatening letters, not to make decisions.

However, if their clients are stupid enough to start a civil claim against you as ling as you have a copy of this and proof of it being sent then DR+ by not passing it on will lose the claim against you for their clients.

I would think that this will be the last you hear from DR+, they only get paid to send out 3 or 4 letters and if you hear from Highview, you can tell them to read your email to DR+ and then sod off.

Oh yes, I keep all my emails and the headers will show exactly when it was sent, plus I've already had the automatic response from DR+ to say that they've received it.



Let the games begin :wink:

Awww, it seems that DR+ / Highview Parking have bottled it.


Just had an email from DR+ to say...


Thank you for your email.


I can confirm this account has now been closed as requested by our client.


Kind Regards


Shame really, I was quite looking forward to showing them up in court.




Maybe next time :wink:
