    • Top paediatricians have written an open letter to government about children going hungry and supporting Marcus Rashford's campaign.   https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/oct/24/open-letter-from-uk-paediatricians-about-free-school-meals
    • It's not worth appealing because ECP won't listen, unfortunately, plus you can give the impression that if they lean on you, you'll pay them money when you don't need to. The only time we normally advise writing to them is if you get a Letter Before Claim/Action.   Best to say nothing for now and if you do get a LBC, we'll help you to draft something. Have a read around some other parking threads and you'll get an idea of how these people operate.
    • Thank you. Is it worth replying to say why I was there and that I feel it’s a bit disproportionate?   had I known I’d have paid the original £1 but I was so worried about getting into a space without crashing!
    • I had never done it and I was afraid. I have done it now. The meter is mine.
    • How younger is 'younger' and how many is 'many'?   I'm not sure of the numbers raw numbers themselves but look at cat 4 figure 5 which is deaths by age group relative to population. Obviously ignore influenza and pneumonia.   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsduetocoronaviruscovid19comparedwithdeathsfrominfluenzaandpneumoniaenglandandwales/deathsoccurringbetween1januaryand31august2020   The category for deaths for under 65s is almost invisible.

    • 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!

in December i borrowed some money for 247 money box, the loan with interest came to £288 and was due to be re-payed 26.1.16.

 

on the 26.1.16 i received a email from 247 money box saying my payment had been received, so i thought no more about it.

 

in February i took another loan for a much smaller amount, which i paid off in full at the end of the month - now as far as im concerned my account is settled.

 

today i received a email saying they haven’t received payment in January for £288 and i will need to settle this on my next payday (in 4 days time) i have now checked my bank and despite the email from them confirming payment, and the funds being available they didn’t take any money..

 

can they just demand payment in full with such short notice?

 

I have not budgeted for this and this will cause some problems for me, having done some reading tonight, I’ve come across some very worry stories about this companies collection practices.

 

any advice how to deal with them would be greatly appreciated

Hi Jlord...

 

Sorry you got missed.

Cancel your Card with your bank Immediately and get a new one issued. This should kill the CPA for the PDL.

Plus aswell, do you still have that email?

 

Can i see it?

 

We could do with some help from you.

tis is the email i got the other day....

 

I'm your account manager. Just reviewing your account and can see that payment made on 2016-01-26 at 10:20 for the amount of £288.00 has subsequently failed.

 

In order to bring your account upto date you will need to make this payment of £288.00 on your next pay date. We can collect using the debit card details we hold for you.

 

Trust this all makes sense?

 

Thanks for being a great customer. Look forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks

Ask them to explain themselves.... And make sure that you CANCEL THE CPA AND CARD... Like NOW!!!!

 

Thatll stop them dipping their hands into your bank account. Which bank is it?

 

Tell them that payment went through and you have email proof to that method.

 

We could do with some help from you.
