    • 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!

It will probably end up not being reported about because no one wants to hear a story about a bailiff doing nothing wrong.

Only when there is a story that sounds like it sounds like it has the shock factor will it get put in the paper.

 

I have it on good authority that the lady/woman at the property defacated on the bailiff but of course that failed to be mentioned to the local paper!

None of the beliefs held by "Freemen on the land" have ever been supported by any judgments or verdicts in any criminal or civil court cases.

He let her pull her knickers down and squat over him? Sounds dodgy to me, or was it the chamber pot emptied out of the upstairs window?

 

Either way that is a no no, as it is assault.

We could do with some help from you.

Apparently she was deliberatly hiding her goods so when the EA was telling her not to interfere with controlled goods when she was bending down she actually s**t on his leg..

Even a bailiff doesn't deserve that.well nobody does, he was only doing his job, so he doesn't need a dirty mare to do that. Mind you if he was creative he could have said that cr*pping on him was obstructing an EA.

That is not the action of someone remotely sane.

 

Something doesn't sound right, if true, it would suggest the debtor has serious mental illness, and was vulnerable, and someone ill enough to behave like that would surely be fairly obviously vulnerable.

 

And why has the woman not been arrested? Spitting is taken as Assault and dealt with severely, due to the stress and potential effects it can have, if the spitter has certain diseases, faeces surely is even worse.

How much sh1t information is contained in this thread ?

 

I think the site team should close it and think about some of the post contents.

Got to say, the poo stuff feels very like an EA company is attempting damage control/information warfare by attempting to turn the EA into the victim - Especially with the popularity of Can't Pay etc, I can't imagine that were this event with the poo real, it would have been splashed all over the press.

I doubt quite a lot of information in this thread.

 

As i have commented before, if a forum becomes too much of an industry discussion, with non neutrals posting information for tactical purposes, then ordinary members of the public will look elsewhere for advice. Perhaps have a separate CAG folder for discussion/media articles and have this folder purely for those looking for help.

It surely would, bailiffs are notable for trying to assume victimhood if their bullying backfires, R V Tucker [COA 2012] for one example. Another one if say a debtor in a manual wheelchair accidently caught the bailiffs leg with one of the wheelchair footrests whilst trying to maneuver out of the way or deny the bailiff entry, the debtor would be out of the chair face down tasered and cuffed when the police turn up as the bailiff alleges assault, and the police pacify the "aggressive" debtor. Yes coppers are that stupid, well some of them are.
