    • *Update* turns out Capquest bought the debt from Phoenix Recoveries. We now have a reference number for our solicitor to use. 
    • Ah I thought you meant in the actual MCOL claim, in the ebay listing yes, in the PackLink compensation claim yes as well, in the MCOL claim I made no mention aside from the value of the item.   and just an update:   I am able to request a judgement from the two separately.   The claim was issued on the 13th, plus 5 days and another 14 days = 1st Nov my guess (not accounting for business days)   This was also added:    
    • Okay, so what you have to do is you have to take the money you paid to the garage which I understand is £2000. You've gotta consider that the value of the labour they put in was completely wasted because you had to have the turbo taken out and then refitted – is this correct? However, the turbo itself was useful to you and so you should be required to pay for the cost of the turbo. If this is correct and you have independent evidence that the turbo had been incorrectly fitted then you should sue them for the balance. This means that you have to find out the cost of a turbo – was it an original or was it a pattern part? Anyway, you have to find out the cost of the turbo and deduct that from the £2000 and that should be the value of your claim unless you can tell us of any other losses which you have reasonably incurred as a result of their poor workmanship. Let us know
    • Hello again! @Andyorchweve heard back about this and our buyers solicitor is asking my solicitor for either an RX3 or RX4 to be completed. Our solicitor is saying this could get complicated. Any advice? My solicitor has asked me to look into anything I find 🤷🏻‍♂️

    • 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

 

Im hoping you can give me some valuable information as you guys did before.

 

 

My Grandad took out a loan and sneakily got my nan to counter sign the application.

 

 

Unfortunately my Grandad has passed away now

 

 

due to him getting my nan to counter sign, They are now chasing her for the debt.

To which she was extremely surprised about as he never discussed the loan with any one.

 

 

West croft did take up the chasing of the loan but i managed to sent them packing.

 

 

As they were not aware my Grandad had passed away, once id informed them of that

they wrote to me apologising and said the would take no further action.

Thus passing it back to the bank of Scotland.

 

I know she should have asked what she was signing at the time

but now there hounding a frail 84 year old for £5179.44.

It is now making her ill with worry and stress.

 

 

Ive got a letter of authority from my nan so i can step in and deal with this on her behalf

to try to relive some of the stress there causing here.

 

Any advice would be appreciated

 

Miky J

From the information i have managed to gather. The loan as through her catalogue in my Grandad name but due to it being her catalogue she had to counter sign it. I will look in to the credit file to see if it is listed on there.

The Bank of Scotland has sent a letter stating they require £ 80 per month or further action will be taken.

 

Back in Sept 2009 my late Grandfather took out a loan but sneakily got my nan to sign it as well . Unfortunately he passed away in June 2013 we informed all his creditors of his passing and forwarded his death certificate to them but this one came back due her signature being on it.

 

while trying to sort the finances out for my nan this got passed to westcot debt collectors. with out us knowing she was paying westcot £80 a month. but they kept sending her letters asking for a higher payment. i happened to find one of these letters and questioned my nan about this payment. An she said she was scared as they said if she didn't pay they would take here to court so she agreed to the £80 a month with waistcoat. So upon finding these letters i contacted westcot and opened a can of whoopass on them to which they quickly backed down. i forwarded them a copy of the death certificate o which they wrote back to me saying they wanted no further involvement in this debt and was passing it back to the creditor. So now Bank of Scotland are now pressuring her to pay the £80 a month again

you could try a CCA request preyin they don't have it

but as its post apr 2007

they'd be able to enforce it with a recon.

 

 

are you aware of how the balance occurred?

 

 

might an sar to K&CO be in order

looking for PENALTY FEES and PPI

 

 

very probable on cat debts

i will send a cca request in the post in the morning.

 

My Grandad had a loan with his MBNA credit card to buy a car but the interest rates were sky high.

 

 

He was looking at loans with lower interest rates to pay the MBNA one off so it would work out cheaper in the long run.

 

 

He Borrowed £7000 in the beginning.

If it turns out she is 100% liable for this debt can they refuse an offer of £20 a month repayment.

 

 

I know it sounds crude but my nan not got many years left in her.

 

 

So i don't really want her worrying and stressing trying to scrimp by to pay these the money they're demanding.

 

Thanks

Miky-j

 

I have just picked this letter today.

 

 

They claiming they haven't received a letter for me to act on my behalf even though they have corresponded with me over the last few weeks.

 

 

Its a little confusing as in this letter it states the agreement as signed in 1990

 

Regards
