    • Thanks BankFodder.   I wasn't intending on making bones about it with them but I was irked at being dismissed with the phrase 'it's store policy'.  I returned it because I was returning an air hockey game which wasn't functioning properly.  I would have assumed that if it were designed as a toy for an audience that may be prone to dropping it, it would be made to be suitably durable.  I was expecting that a year would have been reasonable and by it not lasting it was, as you mentioned, not of satisfactory quality. Alas, it's not something I wish to pursue to find out for sure.   I do appreciate your feedback, as always on here, I like to know where I stand with these things.  Thanks also for the heads-up on the Youtube video, I had not thought of that.
    • I've also being doing some reading over the weekend. It appears the law of properties act 1925 does not apply in Scotland (only England and Wales).   "In Scotland an assignation need not be in writing, and intimation is all that is needed to give the assignee a right effective against all parties. Apart from the terminology, the principal differences in England are as follows. Under the Law of Property Act 1925 the assignment must be in writing, the entire benefit must be assigned, and notice must be given to the other contracting party. If any of these elements are missing there may still be an equitable assignment – under which an assignee would typically need to join the assignor as a party to any action under the contract."   So I think the NOA defence is not going to hold up, as Nolans are probably right in what they are saying that their letter (intimation) is sufficient.   So my sole defence is going to be lack of default notice under section 87/88.   Any advice at this stage? I assume costs are still capped at £150 if lose?
    • Hi bankfodder. I do have the invoice in my email, so would it be the cost of the turbo and labour for fitting
    • as i said unsure of what this 15% is about.   the FOS/FCA clearly describe how refund calcs show have been made the their relevant sites.   p'haps at this juncture it might be better to scan up to ONE multipage PDF their refund letters  another set of eyes is always belter.   please read our upload guide carefully      
    • I wouldn't bother with emailing Virgin's CEO.   In April I started a complaint about my BB connection which they repaired quickly but charged me to repair.   I was mostly ignored or promised resolution that never happened. So I complained by email to the CEO, twice, demanding written responses. On each occasion, a lowly call centre worker called and it was obvious they knew or cared little about my actual case.   Finally I got a written reply confirming the charge was dropped but not a penny offered in compo despite the issue taking months to resolve.   Virgin don't take CEO complaints seriously.

    • 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,

 

Not sure if i'm in the right place.

I have revisted an old property recently and found a ccj for an old orange debt passed to lowel.

With Brian Carter acting on behalf of them.

 

The ccj was issued in December 2014 for the debt of £733 and i was ordered to pay £50 a month.

This is nearly 12 months old and Carter is in a right flap, obviously.

 

The address correspondence has been sent to, i own, and is rented out.

The tenants say no bailiffs have been around.

I can't understand why?, if it's nearly 12 months ago.

 

this is my second ccj the first one for £1000, i was ordered to pay it immediately.

I didn't have the money so i ignored and heard nothing more about it.

 

I owe around 40k to various, whom i have agreed repayment plans with.

Anyone have an idea what Carter will do next if i don't pay?

Can he get a charging order on my house?

And why has he not taken more steps after nearly 12 months?

 

Many thanks if anyone can give me guidance.

Carter likes to get ccjs just to get his fee off the creditor. The creditor likes to get one just out of spite. If they actually thought they could collect, they would have done so by now.

 

Can you give more info on the debt

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..

Bryan Carters and debt companies lowell deal with huge numbers of debts, with CCJ's obtained by bulk. They get quite a lot by default, as they are not defended, quite often where claim forms have gone to an old address. If your credit record had your latest contact address at the time the claim was issued, you would question why an old address was used.

 

Suggest that you try to enter into a repayment arrangement, unless there are any issues with the debt, that you can use in a set aside application.

 

Be careful with the amount of debts. Some creditors have been known to collect debts owed by people, so the total debts they have are more than the bankruptcy threshold (£5k) with a view to making money from bankruptcy. If you own property, you would be wise to maintain payment arrangements and never allow any debt company the opportunity of trying to make you bankrupt.

We could do with some help from you.

Persoally i wouldnt even touch the debt or contact them unless you want them to start harassing you and threatening you. If they got a CCJ, youd need a valid reason for a set aside . More often than not, these companies get the CCJ out of pure spite, knowing they can never collect, and the person will have it on their credit record for 6 years.

Hey guys

Thanks for taking the time to help out in this.

 

The Debt was from just over 3 years ago with orange, when i was going through a particularly tricky patch financially.

It was originally just shy of £500, and up to £733 now with costs.

I have let this slip somehow.

As i say, i have around 40k of debt with 8 creditors, all of which i have kept on top of with agreed repayment plans.

 

Also, the other ccj i never heard from anyone again after the judgement, and as you guys say, sometimes they just throw it at you for spite.

But Carter seems to be particularly nasty, and i'm worried he could take this further. I have managed to hold on to my property through all these financial nightmares over the years.

And the £50 per month i can't afford right now, plus the costs of not paying the judgement for 12 months.

 

Any thoughts you guys have would be appreciated.

Many thanks

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...
