    • thats not a credit agreement, it's a signed application form, it doesn't contain all the prescribed terms it should, and it also refs other T&C terms that are not included.   as for ever sending an SAR to a DCA, thats the same as sending a stupid AID letter, simply invites pointless letter tennis.   sit on your hands until/unless they send a letter of claim and a reply pack.   dx

    • Ok defence submitted. Mortimer have sent a letter back ackn my CPR request.   Weirdly Cabot got back to me ackn my CCA but have referenced the other claim for the current account instead. Didn't think you could CCA a current account claim? Fleecers must be getting their wires crossed 😂    I'll sit back and wait and keep on reading up!   As ever thank you kindly to Andy and Dx.

    • 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!

 

Sending this on behalf of my partner - She took out a payday loan with QQ she thinks back in a time of crippling debt. She owed a few things out at the time and basically ran away from them when it all became overwhelming.

 

She borrowed £200 in July 2009 and never paid a penny towards it, fast forward 5 years and a letter from BPO Collections has landed on our doorstep this morning, acting on behalf of Motormile Finance and threatening visitors to our door.

 

So first question is - can she request a CCA? Because this was online is it different to a normal loan where you sign something etc.

 

If someone does come to our door, they have no rights to enter our property without our permission do they? I'm fairly certain of that. Only problem is what if some bully turns up while im at work and barges past her.

 

Thanks in advance

Ignore for now. MMF are pushing their luck and just sending out automated letters which break various regulations.

 

You can of course request a CCA from MMF which they will NOT have. They will either ignore your request, credit the fee to your account, or say they need 40 days to get the info.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Tell them to sod off, or the police will be called. The milkman has more rights than a doorstep collector. MMF will threaten it, but it rarely ever happens. If it does, just laugh at them.

Hi,

Yes a CCA request is a very good idea, even if it was a "tick box" agreement.

How much is BPO asking for?

 

 

The "doorstep" collectors have no authority apart from a company "script" they cannot enter your property or remove goods.

If one such person attempts to " barge" past your partner it will amount to assault and the police must be called.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.
