    • I did see that but I haven't seen any announcement.
    • Dodo is just a scapegoat - and well rewarded at that.   So here we are about 8 weeks and approaching 2 months from: (during which failing to even collect 250 spit samples a day  @£500M)   BBC Breakfast - Matt Hancock on coronavirus testing (03Sept20).mp4
    • Good morning,   Thanks for the reply.  This gym involves Legacy Leisure, the gym I use is Rutland Sports Park, though my account is linked to Friesland Sports Centre as that’s where I initially signed up (they have 5 different sites all working as one in this area).  It was a council owned and run gym before they brought in this third party to do it for them (and reduced the quality, but that’s a story for another day).   As suggested I have cancelled the direct debit.  I received another email last night telling me that they would freeze my account for a further 6 months for an ‘admin fee’ of £5 per month.  I will be telling them that’s not good enough.   Apparently I owe them £25 for an admin error on their behalf from about a year or so ago (they mentioned this at the time but said they would look in to it, and never mentioned it again).  I’m happy to pay what I owe outside of this £26 28-days notice fee.   So: what should I do next?   Thanks again,   Sam

    • 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

 

I wonder if anyone be able to help, I'm posting on behalf of my father who a number of years ago (May 2011)received a PCN from Excel parking, at the he ignored this (he actually was only parked for less than 5 minutes before he returned to find him being ticketed-he hadn't realised it was a payable carpark as when he realised he returned)

 

He today received a letter from Rossendales Collect stating that the debt has been sold onto them and they can offer a reduced payment of £100 and in accordance to 'something' act they can recover debt up to 6 years. (unfortunately I don't have the letter-my mum and dad are worried) Im hoping to reassure them.

 

Rossendales haven't included the date of the 'offence' in the letter nor does it ask who was the driver at the time. should my dad ignore, write to Rossendales asking for dates etc or pay up??

 

Many thanks in advance.

Sorry have just phoned my mum-dad was parked in disabled bay and displaying his blue badge-when he spotted that it was a payable carpark he returned thinking he may have to pay. Then he spotted the attendant who said that the badge wasn't clearly displayed enough

Was the original ticket from the Council or a private company. Rossendales Collect are just a common or garden Debt Collector with very little powers.

Hi he was parked at a retail park-the ticket was from a company called Excell. (I think they are a private company rather than instructed by the council?)

You can tell him to ignore them or respond by saying the debt is denied in its entirety.

In truth these pre nov 2012 lemon debts will never get very far and your father doesnt owe a penny as the law allowing people to chase the keeper didnt exist at the time.

Thank you I will pass this onto him. Odd though that Rossendales doesn't include the date of the 'ticket'. If he replies should we mention that we have no recollection of the event as they have failed to include date/time?

 

Many thanks
