    • 50K signatures on Petition against the ban https://petitions.senedd.wales/petitions/244282   There are two camps here, the save the NHS and the local control is best like Ceredigion with rates so low due to them implementing their own local Test trace isolate away from the English Dido/Serco mashup that Drakeford bought into for Wales as well, with such anomalies as aschool dinner lady in Bangor being offered a test in Inverness, a 900 mile round trip.  Second group blindly support Drakeford's ban even suggesting Online shopping for the non essential items should be banned, and mask wearing compulsory even in our own homes.
    • In the T&Cs there is no definition for MOT Check & Repair 12 month cover £750.  Actually it is not even mentioned at all in the T&Cs.  I have track of the emails disputing the service regime and that is not being disputed any more.    The issue being disputed is that under the service contract as per the "12 month cover £750" the MOT, minor fault and advisories should have been repaired.  In addition, their own health check indicated that the rear discs were 60% corroded and I am of the opinion they should have been repaired at the time of the service.  They quoted me nearly £500 to replace the rear brake discs.  I had the same job done on a 2005 Jeep GC and the cost was under £200.   By the end of the 3 year contract we will have paid in £1487.16.  We took out the service plan believing it to insure us against any expensive repairs at the time of the MOT or service. What was the point in paying for the "insurance" part of the plan if it does not work.  I am now also wondering if the credit payments would be covered by FOS although this is not mentioned in the T&Cs?   As said we now have the warning light on again so it does appear that they may have frigged the software to make the message disappear for the MOT.  I have no way of proving this.    I need to mae sure that I have the correct information to argue my case as more then likely they are going to baulk when the "Serv 4WD" issue is brought up when Isee them on Tuesday.

    • hi all just a quick question. brief summary. i had an account at a forex broker, where i traded a currency vs another. i held it the trade (position) for about a week and then sold the trade (closed the position). i had a profit of around 10k. then the broker confiscated(stole) all the profit citing they made an error with the interest they should have charged me for holding this large trade/position. they claimed it was a manifest error, and furthermore claimed that they had been charged this interest by the banks where they copy my trade in the markets. i looked into what they were saying and found that the correct amount of interest according to the markets should have been around 5k. in their terms and conditions it states that any amount of interest or fees would be clearly stated. but now they are claiming manifest error. i would like to take them to court for the 5k overcharging as they have not provided me their calculations for 10k as in any event the calculations would be wrong as the correct amount was 5k my question is in the section of the particular of claim where i put the breaches that the defendant has breached what would i put there. after googling and reading the forums and looking for someone who had some sort of similar case. i came across the following. but i am not sure if they would apply to me. so please if you have any insight please do help me thank you what i have found online, i don't know if this is relevant or not The interest charges are a disproportionate penalty and therefore unenforceable as they are contrary to common law. Further, as a disproportionate penalty they are invalid under the Unfair (Contract) Terms Act 1977 s.4 and under the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999. Para. 8 and sch. 2(1)(e). In the event that the charges are not a penalty then they are unreasonable within the meaning of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 s.15 breach of statutory duty breach of contract tort of negligence

    • 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,

 

Need some help please.

 

 

Been sent a Default Notice by email (nothing in post) from MYJAR dated 19/12/14.

 

 

Served under section 87(1) and giving me until 02/01/14 to "pay the total of the arrears of £247.00".

 

The problems are:

1) I don't have this money to pay before then.

 

2) This is from a txtloan back in 2011.

I had one loan with them in May 2011 which i repaid back on 03/06/11.

I then took out another on 10/06/11 which i could not afford to pay back as was in a spiral of debt with other payday loans.

 

 

The original amount was £100 and i needed to pay back £117 by 25/06/11.

 

 

The loan then went off to Lucas Credit Services who started chasing this in 2013.

Now MyJAR have sent me a default.

 

3) Can they send a default notice more than 3 and 1/2 years after the loan was due? There is nothing account of this loan on my credit files.

 

4) I only have a few days before the default date..

.if i send a CCA request in, can they still put the default on my credit file during the time they have to respond to the CCA?

 

5) On the DN, they refer to "Under clause 1.14 of the running agreement...."

but there are no numbered clauses at all on the agreement. Furthermore, the agreement is not signed (just says tick the box on the screen).

 

6) The agreement as i see it is generic. It does give the credit limit, the APR, late payment fees, etc....but the actual amount payable and repayment date are in the body of the emails which TxtLoan used to send out. Not part of the agreement. Is that valid?

 

7) Do i send the CCA to the PO BOX address or the registered address for TxtLoan?

if its not showing

I doubt it will appears now.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

 

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

 

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

DX this is similar to my case with MYJAR.

They intend to add this default to credit profiles...

 

Please read my thread for more info...

 

Also email ; paul.smith@myjar.com; Gareth.Gumbley@myjar.com

 

Paul is head of compliance... Gareth is the CEO

@fkofilee...i've read your thread but i don't understand where the compliance argument came from? Compliance with what exactly?

If they can prove the loan was taken by me, then what specifically stops them from putting a default on? I really cannot do with ANOTHER 6 year default. I already have about 8 of them and around 3 years left till the last one drops off.

 

Any ideas on my other questions too?

The difference between me and you is that you took your loan, I didnt.

However the common elements are the defaults etc...

 

The ICO frowns on these tactics being used. This is Similar to Welcome Finance defaulting 3 years after the last missed payment etc.

Its wrong because the technicalities are you will have a default until 2021.

 

Send your CCA request direct to their registered office. They can still add a default to your CRA even while requesting the CCA.

As for the clauses... Not quite sure. Youll need to speak to the ICO when they reopen next year about the legality of the delayed default.

I know you have had some success with MMF, I have had a significant sum written off by them (c1K) but it did take CSA and FOS to get it done. Maybe you have my txtloan account and they are chasing you because I can not pay!. I am almost at the point where I have more up to date entries on my credit file than I do defaults !

 

In summary I would just keep fighting them and get that formal complaint in followed up with comprehensive complaints to the ICO and FOS. In my complaint to the FOS I find it helps to list and include all relevant or even almost relevant correspondence to help speed up the process

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

Fletch, i got 3k sorted from MMF

 

One was apparently a Cash genie Loan for £1600 ... My jaw hit the floor when I found out.

 

Anyway this isnt my thread. This is Ravsta's thread.

 

Ive said my piece here...Rav, complain to the 2 people Ive mentioned, advise you are not happy. This will be loaded with penalty and admin fees, you can reclaim them.

OK thanks guys...i've sent my CCA request off this morning to the registered office.

 

 

So that should put the account into dispute before the default goes on.

 

 

I'll write to the ICO about the late default if it does go onto my credit file.

..but I'm yet to find any real evidence that a default registered onto someone's credit file

some 3 years later is actually not acceptable/unlawful/illegal etc.

 

 

We all KNOW it's technically wrong but how can it actually be removed?

Are there any precedents?

 

In all honesty, I'm not concerned about claiming any money..it's the default which i don't want.

 

 

I guess the other angle as @fkofilee says is that the default amount will be loaded with penalty and admin fees.

..hence making the default invalid?

Be aware that lack of a CCA only stops them enforcing through court. They could potentially add on the default still and continue chasing, but it would be pointless. Theyd just do it out of sheer spite.

 

Regarding the default, if it is inflated, and the inflated amount caused it to enter default, then the default cannot be placed. Only the true amount owed can be.

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..

So if they enter a default on my credit file for £247 when the loan amount was £100 plus £17 interest....that would give me grounds to have it removed? Does anyone know of any legal precedents which have allowed defaults to be removed?

 

What about if i ring them on

That is a bit of a moot point. In theory so long as they can prove it was delivered yes they can however just showing it went to a mail box isn't IMO enough.

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

Nope. It used to be within 6 months of the breach, but the regulations changed, so it can now be pretty much anytime a creditor wants as long as its reasonable. Sadly, theres no definition of the word reasonable in the regulations.

I think you may have your 'defaults' mixed up ;)
