    • Hi BankFodder   Many thanks for your assistance in this matter.   I have decided to commence County Court action against DPD/Parcel2go regarding the lost parcel.   I would just like you to clarify whether which company you recommend me to commence legal proceedings against:   Parcel2go. My contract was made via this company.   Or DPD - This company undertook the contract and are the ones who lost the parcel.   I look forward to hearing from you soon.   Kind Regards Humza
    • I lost my job this jan because work decided not to extend my probabation, so i've been out of work since then. During this time I have made 3 payments of £270 from my own savings and now I am really struggling.   I rang motonova last month before COVID19 started and explained I lost my job and wanted a reduction in the payment but they asked me what my out goings were and told me 'it looks you can make this months payment so we can't do anything etc'   Since COVID19 has started motonova now have this form available to ask for reduction of payments - see https://customer.motonovofinance.com/file/cms/raw/888dda418afb548c00a1afc1cde50704.pdf   Given my weak financial situation can anyone help me with what I put down for these sections of the form so my request to lower or freeze payments stands a good chance of being accepted   1. Is your situation realated to the Coronavirus outbreak? Yes   2. Do you consider yourself to be in a high risk group, if so why?Do you explicitly consent to us recording this information in your account notes? I am no longer employed and have no income coming in. Work have made cuts due to Corona and no longer employed by them I am sorry I wont be able to make payments of £270   3. How much can you pay? I can pay £25 a month   4. What are you proposing, and what help would you like from us? I've lost my job and have no income. I've had to self isolate under the goverment guidelines with my family because my daughter had a cough at school. I've been applying for numerous jobs and have no luck and the COVID19 situation in the country has made the whole situation even worse for me. I request given the financial difficulty I am in that  you please accept my offer   What do you think of my reasons and how can you add or improve them? I really stressed out because my next payment is coming up in 3 weeks and I'm down to my last £400 of my savings and I've no idea how long it will take me to find a job  
    • Hi All   As im new to this site and here for as much advise as possible to help me and a few fellow work colleges regarding a situation with our employer given the current circumstances with the COVID-19 (coronavirus).   Basically since i started working for said company i have never been given my contract or employer handbook to view as when i need to, its always stored inside our boss's office and past staff have been refused to view it when they have wanted to, what i want to know is, is it a legal requirement for a employer to give there employees a copy of there contract/ handbook or is there a clause that can allow him not to?   Also i have currently been in self isolation due to cornavirus and have spoken to our company via email with no reply from them but have heard from colleagues that the work has slowed down, and in the recent email i have sent i spoke about potentially being put on 'furlough pay' if work stops completely. Can he refuse to put certain staff on it and still keep the business open even though there is no work? As well as not providing sufficient hygiene sources given the current climate, would that put him in breach of contract (if could view mine to start off with) ?   At the minute we are stuck in limbo given we are still off in self isolation for another week and he doesn't really care about his staff, what would be the best course to take regarding the matters above??   HELP!    
    • I have been trying to get onto the MCOL site for several days now, it keeps saying that the password is wrong and i haven't been able to get to talk to someone on the phone, i have prepared a defense and its ready to email, just realised today is day 33.   Here it is for your considderation, thank you.   The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim vague and are generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made. 1.Paragraph 1 is noted; I have in the past had financial dealings with MBNA. I am unaware of the alleged agreement the Claimant refers to having failed to adequately particularise its claim and have therefore sought clarity from the Claimant by way of a Section 78 request and a CPR 31.14 request.   2. Paragraph 2 is denied. I am unaware of any service of a Default Notice (s) pursuant to section 87 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 by the original creditor MBNA. I have sought verification from the claimant regarding this matter and they have been unable to comply.   3. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to: (a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and (b) show and evidence any cause of action and service of a Default Notice or termination notice; and (c) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   4. After receiving this claim I requested by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a section 78 request, copies of any documents referred to within the Claimants' particulars to establish what the claim is for. To date they have failed to comply to my CPR 31.14 request and my section 78 request and remain in default with regards to this request.   5. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   6. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.   7. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief. I confirm that the above facts and statements are true to the best of my knowledge and recollection.

They all try to shift the blame. FOS will say the Broker is the company you need to reclaim PPI from as they sold it to you. Welcome are probably right to tell you to 'go away' and not provide any details.

 

From what I can see, Dial4ALoan was operated as a separate company to Welcome, but within the Cattles group, hence the Batley address. A&T Finance are still running, with a rather poor website at http://www.atfinance.co.uk/ I cannot see any link to them from Welcome/Cattles so fail to understand why they had a copy of your application, unless it was referred to Welcome and they passed you over to Dial4ALoan who then acted as broker.

 

As long as you've given all the details to the FOS they should be able to sort something out - eventually. They will already know that both companies were owned by Cattles.

 

As for underwriting - I have no idea, sorry.

Thank-you again hilliards your comments are appreciated.

 

Lets hope FOS have more luck than I did !

 

Can anyone comment further regarding the Underwriter link with Welcome ?

Just an up-date,

I have today received a further response from Welcome stating that the rejected A & T Finance application

and was passed to Dial 4 and quote the following extract from letter :-

 

" We no longer have an underwriting department due to the restructure of our business

and therefore any information regarding the application is difficult to obtain.

 

I have had to rely on colleagues who worked in the business in 2003.

We can assume that that the rejected A & T Finance application was passed to Dial 4 A Loan, who worked closely with us.

Dial 4 A Loan submitted your details to us, using information provided by A & T Finance.

 

We have no details or records that any commission was paid to a broker on this occasion (in which I do have as part of SAR ?)

and please be aware that this represents my final response to your complaint. "

 

I will obviously forward letter to FOS but

 

in the meantime do I need to be trying to establish or locate details of any other relationships

i.e. between Underwriter Aviva who was regulated at the time of sale and Welcome / Dial 4 A Loan ?

 

Should I approach Underwriters asking for confirmation that a fee was paid for new business ?

 

As mentioned above, I do have copies of Dial 4 A Loan commission and brokerage sheets with Welcome Finance.

 

Any further help would be very much appreciated.

I sent a SAR to Welcome Finance and they responded within the 40 days but there was various information missing.

So I contacted Welcome requesting details or an explanation as to why they cannot be provided.

 

I received a Final Response reply yesterday in which they apologise and due to an internal error some of the information was not originally submitted but now has.

 

 

Also they quote that any documents that are no longer stored have been securely disposed of

- should they have provided some sort of recording confirming this ?

 

Welcome finally state in the letter that they are sorry that I only received part of my DSAR

and that details were unclear and for that reason they have upheld my complaint

but if not satisfied with their response I have six months to refer complaint to FOS.

 

Sorry for what maybe some stupid questions but what next ?

If complaint has been upheld am I entitled to any compensation for time and effort etc involved ?

If so do I reply requesting this or do I report Welcome to ICO

and submit a complaint to FOS in respect of failure to comply with DPA ?

 

Any comments would be appreciated.

Any complaint regarding incomplete data from an SAR will need to go to the Information Commissioner.

 

I do not think that the FOS would deal with this.

You could I guess, send a further letter to their Data Controller or a formal complaint to their Head office and advise that you think their response is disingenuous. That you have expended time and energy in dealing with this matter and at the very least would expect them to compensate you for extra time and postage you have had to invest in by their lack of due diligence.

Thanks again citizen and think I might probably do that and in the meantime contact the ICO for failure to comply fully to SAR.

I have various ongoing complaints with Welcome / FOS in which some have been resolved

but others have not, in respect of a Secured loan taken out in November 2003.

 

One of the complaints was in respect of a discrepancy in loan amounts mentioned on statements

in which apparently was due to migration of IT system error

and the matter has now been clarified and FOS were advised.

 

I still had an outstanding issue regarding refund of added amounts and interest,

in respect of some irregular payments that appeared on my statements I

n which Welcome were unable to clarify and redress of costs / time and effort.

 

This morning I have received the attached letter from FOS and wondered if anyone else has received the same.

 

if any experts on this site could kindly have a look and advise if this will now affect my ongoing complaint including my other Payment Protection Insurance mis-selling issue.

 

Apologies for state of letter but this is how I received it :shock:

 

Thanks

I would like to know what this means exactly for ongoing claims, sounds like welcome are trying to wriggle out of paying something.

Exactly where I'm coming from and I have put the question to FOS and now awaiting a further reply.

 

 

told FOS that they must have been aware of the situation and find it unfair that Welcome can deny all knowledge of mis-selling without a valid explanation (stalling tac-tic I know)

then passed to FOS who in turn take forever in a day to even investigate it, let alone make a decision !

 

My first impression is that everything's been put on hold but I will post up once response received.

 

I just wanted to give everyone the heads up who may have any pending complaints with Welcome

and if they have anyone has already received anything similar.

I have today received FOS adjudicator's letter rejecting my PPI complaint in which I have attached copies of details received.

 

Please could any experts on here kindly have a look and advise if it is still worthwhile referring to the Ombudsman

on the basis of the comments made ?

 

My main concern is that FOS mention that they have listened to a call recording between Dial4ALoan and my OH

in which when I had originally requested details via various SAR's

there was no evidence or any record details of any conversation ?

Can I ask FOS for details or do I need to go back to Dial4ALoan requesting information ?

 

There is also another concern with the copy of details provided regarding Secured Loan amounts sheet,

in which was also not previously provided, in which is not even on any headed paper ????

 

This has been a very frustrating complaint with all concerned, including FOS but am I fighting a dead duck ?

I would appreciate any assistance in providing a response or any advice on what to do next.

 

Also I am somewhat confused, as the actual credit agreement with PPI is actually from Welcome / Progressive

and not Dial4ALoan and therefore would have thought that they would have been responsible for miss-selling ?

 

FOS also mention about no evidence of relationship between broker / lender (Welcome)

or any agency relationship between all parties involved including Underwriters

- How can this be established ?

 

Sorry but has anyone else experienced the same comments from foslink3.gif re agency relationship between broker, lender and Underwriters

or possibly assist me in if there is anything else I could possibly do as a last resort.

FOS adjudicator has granted extension for their final decision and referral to ombudsman till 15 Sept.

 

I have been trying to search forums but have had no luck tracing a similar complaint situation.

 

Any comments would be appreciated.

Many thanks dx and much appreciated.

 

Just an after thought

 

how can Underwriter AVIVA not be responsible if they were regulated at the time of sale ?

Surely they should not have been dealing / or accepting business from any parties that were not regulated

and is a breach of their code of conduct at the time ?

 

I had already sent a separate complaint to Underwriters in which was originally rejected by them.

I am just trying to seek another option to pursue but believe that their final response was submitted on the 15th February 2014

(did pass details onto FOS around then as part of Welcome complaint),

so time is at a premium at moment.

 

Even though FOS have dismissed the above, I wondered if I could still address further with some assistance from any Forum experts in order to fight my case.

 

As mentioned that time is running out should I e-mail the FOS person that I have been dealing with asap mentioning my change of tact ?

I've just had a look and doesn't seem promising and my faith in FOS at the moment has diminished !

 

Anyway I have had to submit another complaint yesterday with FOS in respect of Underwriters Aviva,

so here's to another 2+ years of toing and throing :x

 

I will also have to keep searching other sites for any up-dates regarding a similar case.

Any further assistance would be very helpful but

in the meantime I have submitted new complaint to FOS in respect of Aviva as 6 months from my original complaint

with them has nearly lapsed.

 

My other claim with Dial4ALoan / Welcome is still open with the adjudicator at FOS until the 15 Sept before their final response and ombudsman involvement.

that's exactly like HFC and Hamilton life

 

it was latterly proved Hamilton life was set up or something

by ex directors/managers of HFC.

 

they then had to rather quickly hire 100's of shedder wagons

and go around the UK destroying everything they could.

Absolutely disgraceful !

 

Funny you should mention them,

I have just found an old HFC Trust & Savings loan details from the late 1980's

and with it a Hamilton Insurance / Life policy.

 

 

I notice they added single life and disability premium (ticked themselves)

and even all those years ago I remember the salesperson telling me that for it to be agreed,

I had to take it !

 

Probably no chance finding anything on this one lol !

 

As for Dial4ALoan / Welcome it seems a struggle trying to prove any relationship

and FOS are not bothered on their underhand dealings, in which we all know about.
