    • A couple days ago i started to receive emails from JD Williams all with orders i did not make totalling £450 , two orders with my address listed and another two with a womans name and address in lodnon ( im from wales ) , ,when i received the cofirmation order emails i logged into my account and everything was as it should be (no pending orders)  so thought it was a typical junk/scam email, when i received another order through my email it was bugging me so i used the same email as the username and a very old password and it logged me into a old account i never knew existed , this is the account the orders were made through.the items were already dispatched so it was to late to cancel , i contacted jdwilliams and they put a fraud marker on my account and told me to email jd willimams fraud team ( waiting for a response 4 days later)  i tracked the hermes delivery today and the items were left on the fraudsters doorstep with a picture taken from hermes for proof of delivery , im very worried  and dont know what to do , should i contact the police or wait for a response from the investigations team?     Any advice would be greatly appreciated   Thanks
    • I would deal with this the same as I deal with the Parking People.    1. Get stroppy - fight for your money back. 2. Tell the debt collectors - this is harassment - and charge them £196 every time they write to you. 3. Court action for the return of your funds.   Or write off what you've paid and accept the lesson on the chin - but maintain the issue with the debt collectors if they pursue.    These people are utter [Insert Your Own Words Here]   Richard (Nobby)    PS Oh and edit the post to put some space in the post if you can.     
    • Hello and thank you for the detailed answer.   I have checked that website. The MPRN matches with my bill and the gas supplier appears as EON. Then, out of curiosity I checked my neighbour supplier. I know that they have the electricity with EON based on their smart meter, but their gas supplier is British Gas. I do not know how frequent it is to have different suppliers. Either way, It seems like EON is supplying my flat (based on those numbers), but I still have doubts with regards to which one is my meter and whether I am right when thinking that I am using the wrong meter.   Any suggestions  from this point?       Hi! Thanks for the answer. I am afraid I will have to do it. I just want to be certain before going down that road. Additionally, how will they evaluate my consumption if there is no initial reading to estimate from?   Many thanks!!
    • Hi thanks for the reply and good point. Well after I run the HPI check, I read a lot and also came to know TAX is not transferable, so I went to the gov.uk web and paid the tax in full for the whole year. Since then, I tried to exhaust the web for any information related to this car and made a list of past owners (because I am not sure who holds the title with Moneybarn since Moneybarn will only declare a good faith title if I purchased the car from their customer). So in total there are 5 registered keepers/owners of the car  (incl. myself). From the service records I traced the first ever driver/owner, he said he returned the car to Mercedes, so it means he leased it and the car was registered with a lease/finance company. I could not get details from Keeper 2, but it seems he sold the car after 3 months. Keeper/owner-3 also no details but he sold the car after 12/13 months. Keeper/owner-4 is the seller I purchased the car from. Keeper/Owner-5 is myself.   I tried to trace more and more and used google tools as much as I could, and found out that the car was advertised on July 2020 and Aug-2020 by a car dealer in Sussex on Gumtree! And the car was sold by them on the 29 Aug 2020...so most likely it was sold to Keeper/Owner-4, from whom I purchased the car.   So I made a list of past owners and tried to identify who could hold the title with Moneybarn...after weighing in my assumptions and findings, I came to the conclusion that Keeper/Owner-4 may hold the title. And since the car was advertised by a car-dealer, then I assume they should have run an HPI check. Maybe, just maybe, Keeper/Owner-3 may have traded in his car at this dealer and the car dealer took the Mercedes in as p/x exchange.   So today, i will drive down to the car dealer in Sussex, and try to find out more. If Keeper/Owner holds the title, then I have a better chance to get a Good Faith title from Moneybarn. I never thought I would run into this nightmare but I am weighing down my options, if I have to loose the car, I will try to loose it royally and drive around EU before returning it in the most deplorable state I can.   But then again, if Keeper/Owner holds the title, and he does not default his payments to Moneybarn, can they still repossess the car?

    • 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 everybody,

 

I saw this site and some of the users mentioned on another website while I was looking for advice and I'm hoping someone might be able to help me.

 

I received a letter on Friday to say that Eversheds solicitors were applying to the court for an eviction date. Very upsetting. I live with my 1yr old son and losing our home is a very frightening feeling.

 

I'm currently in arrears of £1779.61 (interest is being added to this) with my Santander Mortgage and have been advised that Eversheds are now dealing with it. I didn't realise but in January of 2013 a suspended order for possession was granted, and I found out today that lasts for 6 years. Over the last six months or so I have missed 3 payments. One was after an arrangement was put in place, but because it took 2 months for them to agree to it, I only had enough in my account for the regular monthly payment so the arrangement was broken and therefore cancelled.

 

I have spoken to Eversheds twice today and been frustrated and upset after each call. Over the weekend I managed to get £450 together and was hoping to pay that towards the arrears, set up an arrangement which would cancel or postpone the eviction. I would be able to clear the rest of the arrears by the end of February. It would mean a lot of sacrifices but it is doable.

 

Eversheds advised that unless I pay the full arrears off the eviction cannot be stopped, and I have to wait to receive the date from the court. They can't tell me how long that will be, nor how long the court will give me before I have to leave.

 

Does anybody know the usual time frames for either of these? I don't know anybody that has been in this position and there isn't really anybody I can talk to about it.

 

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated while I try and think of ways to get the rest of the money.

 

Thanks in advance :)

Was just wondering....is it worth trying to speak to someone at Santander to arrange something? When I called them earlier they put me through to Eversheds but maybe there is a department I could ask for specifically or someone in a branch? I may be clutching at straws here but figured anything is worth a try!

Hi and welcome to cag. If you are in a position to pay normal payments and something off the arrears, no judge will evict you.

 

Have a read of ell-enn's repossession guide in the stickies at the top of the forum, complete the budget sheet you'll find there, then come back with any further questions.

 

Don't worry about evershed's saying you have to pay it all to stop the eviction. It's up to a judge not them!! ;)

That's reassuring, thanks for your reply Caro. I will take a look at the guide and fill it in, sorry didn't check it before.

 

Eversheds told me to fill out their budget form but then later didn't seem to think it was worth it. I actually asked if they are more interested in repossessing than me clearing the arrears.

 

I called Santander and they won't speak to me about it, but did advise that Eversheds should make an arrangement with me :(

No need to apologise. When you do the budget sheet make sure that you are realistic about what is affordable. It is important that your payment, and anything you can offer above it is paid regularly and on time or Santander can go back to court and try again.

 

I see that you haven't had anything from court yet, so I'd say that at the moment you need to deal with evershed's. I don't think a judge will be happy with them if you make a reasonable offer and they still proceed to court.. Don't let them bully you into offering more than you can afford.

Hi Caro,

 

I've filled out the budget form, and as long as it's agreed I can't see any problem with me being able to keep up with the payments. I've made sure I have enough left over to cover any unforeseen emergencies, which is how I got into this situation. Do I need to send this to Evershed now? Do I need to write a letter to go with it? Sorry for all the questions, but I must say speaking to you has made me feel a bit better. The situation doesn't feel so hopeless anymore.

 

Despite Eversheds letter saying "it's still not too late to avoid repossession...we may (and the lady on the phone emphasised the may) be able to seek agreement to pay the arrears over a period of time" they are unwilling to put an agreement in place due to the fact that I didn't have one set up with them before! Does that sound right to you?

Hi, you could send it to Eversheds with a covering letter (if you need help with the letter just say so and I can draft one for you). If you send it by special delivery they might get it before you receive and eviction notice from the court, but we can help you apply for a hearing to get the eviction stopped if that happens.

 

Would you be able to post up the budget sheet so we can check you have all the elements in it that should be there ?

Of course they can set up an agreement. What's happened in the past has gone and it's what happens going forward that counts.

 

If you follow ell-enn's advice you won't go far wrong.

 

A bit of a puzzle how they got the suspended possession order without your knowledge.

Hi Ell-een, thanks for replying to my problem and sorry for the delay in replying.

 

I've attached my budget form, as you can see I don't live a lavish lifestyle, all I do is study and look after my son but unfortunately I had a bad couple of months. I think not being in contact with Santander was my biggest problem...I really regret it now.

 

If you could help me with a letter that would be much appreciated. I think it's quite unreasonable that they aren't willing to let me at least try and rectify the situation in a reasonable time-frame. Do you know how much notice I'm likely to get once the notice for eviction comes?

 

Caro, I think I probably messed up my words before. What I meant was I knew I had a summons to go to court regarding late payment on my mortgage in Jan 2013 but the fact that I made an arrangement with Eversheds and cleared it off in the time I promised I thought it had all gone away. I didn't realise they had been given a possession order that had been suspended for such a long period. I would've probably let my toilet continue to flood the house and left the boiler broken all winter had I known I would be on the verge of losing my home! :!:

You may want to consider doing a reclaim on all penalty charges applied to the mortgage account as well. ESP of these led to further arrears etc

Hi there, looking at your budget sheet I think you should put some costs in for TV licence, household repairs, dentist etc etc. As you are showing you have over £120 left over each month the court might want you to pay more towards the arrears. do you have a car or any credit cards?

 

 

Affixed is the letter - you will need to fill in the address info at the top - also make sure you put your mortgage account number on the budget sheet and staple it securely to the letter. You will need to send by special delivery (costs around £5 but guarantees it gets there the next day and they have to sign for it).

Thanks again guys, haven't been able to get on here today until now.

 

Ell-een thanks so much for the letter. Should I send a copy to Santander also or should I just deal with Eversheds as the "lender". Also - probably should've mentioned this before sorry! - my dad agreed to help me clear the arrears which is where I had the £450 from. I had already told them that he was going to pay it off by the end of February as I wasn't aware that I would have the opportunity to spread the cost. Is it worth me adding that to the letter or should I just stick to the monthly overpayment option?

 

Re: the budget form I will add a few extra payments tonight, but to answer your question no, I don't have a car or any credit cards.

 

I will send the letter out tomorrow so they should have it by Thursday.

 

Thanks for taking the time to help me :)

Good morning Ell-een

 

Before I had a chance to post the letter this morning the eviction notice came. It is set for February 3rd.

 

From other posts on here I'm aware that I need to fill in a N44 form now is that correct? I'm hoping I can do something to stop this. Can you please advise. Do I still send the letter to Eversheds to try and come to some sort of payment agreement?

 

I appreciate that you're probably at work now, but hope to hear from you soon.

Hi, yes - still send the letter to eversheds - make sure you keep a copy of the letter and budget sheet as we will need to attach them to the N244.

 

I'm a bit tied up today at work, but should be able to give you some time in the morning to go through what you need to do to complete the N244, hopefully we can get it finished and ready to take to the court.

 

Are you able to be on line in the morning ?

Hi Ell-een,

 

I'm actually on the phone to Eversheds now.

 

I filled out the form with the help of your guide and followed some advice that you gave to someone else.

 

I called and asked them to put it in writing that on Monday they refused my offer of £450 upfront payment and then any outstanding arrears by the end of February. I mentioned that I was going to be applying to the court to cancel the eviction and he said he needed to put me on hold. When he came back and said they were wiling to go through a budget plan with me and put my offer forward to Santander. What a joke! Why could this not be done on Monday when I asked.

 

We've just finished the plan and I've given my offer so he's got me on hold (trying to get that letter for me I believe) and I should know from Santander if they accept by the end of the day.

 

Fingers crossed!!! Failing that I will be around in the morning for your help. I was going to follow everything in the guide. Would it be better for you if I wrote it all up and then sent it for you to check over? I already feel like I'm taking up enough of your time.

 

Thanks

Hi let's wait till tomorrow and see what the answer is from Santander. When you went through the budget plan, did you give them the figures from the budget sheet you already filled in ?

How much was the surplus? did you put some figures in other categories as I advised you in a previous post?

 

There's no immediate rush to get the N244 to court the week before the eviction date would still be fine - give it till Monday and see what happens.

 

There's no way you will be evicted when you have a small child, can afford the payments and some towards the arrears

I really hope so. I can't lose our home.

 

Yes I added some other categories so the surplus was £170, and I offered to pay £130 a month towards clearing the arrears.

 

No rush on the N244? Ok I can breathe a little then. I figured I would have to wait a while for the hearing date so I was panicking to get it done asap.

Do you have the £450 to make payment straight away? if so, that will help your case - they may ask for that payment before agreeing to cancel the eviction, so you need to be ready to pay.

Yes and I've wanted to give it them since Monday :). By Friday I may have £600 so as long as they agree I should be on the right track to sorting this horrible situation out

It's currently at £1780 with interest being added. I remember reading something about £40 extra a month but I'm not sure if that is the interest amount or late payment fee. Why do you ask? Is there something I can do about stopping that?
