    • if your loan is an unsecured loan, but you own a home were they to make you bankrupt, could you lose the home....... .............   i will assume you are talking about your wife's debts? as you've said YOU don't own a home ?  
    • Shops at the retail park beside me were mobbed today, last week the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh was as busy as it ever has been.
    • I have a loan with Commsave dx, the deductions come straight from my wages. When you join you tell them how much you want to save either weekly or monthly and you authorise them take deductions from your wages towards your savings account with them, same thing apply's when you have a loan with them.
    • I went from Virgin Media to Sky Q earlier this year as I wasn't a great fan of Tivo and was keen to try Sky Q.   When it was installed, I was offered the chance to replace my aging (ten year old) dish which I accepted.   In the last few days, I've come to the conclusion that Sky Q isn't for me and that I'd ideally like to downgrade it at the end of my contract to go back to using my old Sky+ HD box, which I still have.   Much to my surprise, I subsequently found out that the LNB on my dish would not be compatible as Q uses a special "wide band" LNB and the older boxes do not.   I contacted Sky to confirm this, which they did.   They also told me that there would be nothing they could do and that if I wanted to continue using my dish with my older box then I would have to pay to get it re-fitted myself which, after some investigation, would cost me at least £150 pounds.   The issue of future compatibility wasn't mentioned anywhere in the literature or the official Sky Q contract, but the Sky employee I was talking to agreed that it could present a problem and said that he would pass it "up the ladder" to see if the wording could be changed to better explain it to prevent any future problems - all the while telling me there was nothing they could do for me specifically.   I understand that I'm getting the service I paid for, which I have no issue with.   I understand that I'm only loaning the equipment and that it has to be returned at the end of the contract.   That I also have no problem with.   The contract also states that the dish becomes mine at the point of installation as well, which is also fine.   Basically, Sky have provided the service stated in the contract.   My problem with this is that Sky must clearly know that many people use, and still use, older boxes.   They still sell viewing cards for these older boxes, so that in itself should be enough to prove that they are aware of the compatibility issues between the two pieces of hardware.   Should there not have been even a small advisory akin to "Customers please note: Sky Q dishes are not compatible with older hardware" ?   By choosing to omit this information,  it not only prevented me from making an informed decision at installation, as I could have apparently asked for what's called a "Hybrid LNB" which would be compatible with older hardware, but it will also leave me significantly out of pocket at the end of the contract.   Is there anything in this ?.  Can I challenge this in any capacity ?.   Ideally, I'd like them to let me out of the Sky Q contract so I can downgrade to the Sky+ HD box I own, but I accept this will likely not be possible.   I'd be interested in your thoughts.   Thankyou.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Good Afternoon,

 

I sent a SAR to Lantern (Formally Motormile) on the 28/09/2018 and I have today received the SAR pack back.

I'm looking for some advice on what to do next as I feel all these accounts could be statute barred.

I would like to give an overview of each account and what the SAR contains to see if anyone can offer some advice on what my next step should be.

 

Account 1

Value £1170

Account Start Date- 15.06.2012

Default Date- 29.06.2012

Payments made/acknowledged - NO

Contains

CCA - YES

Notice of Assignment- NO

 

Account 2

 

Value £200

Account Start Date- 30.11.2011

Default Date- Unknown

Payments made/acknowledged - NO

Contains;

CCA - YES

Notice of Assignment- NO

Chase Letters - 2

 

 

Account 3

 

Value £270.10

Account Start Date- 21.06.2012

Default Date- Unknown

Payments made/acknowledged - NO

Contains;

CCA – YES (Not signed by original creditor)

Notice of Assignment- NO

Chase Letters - 5

 

Account 4

 

Value £250.00

Account Start Date- 02.09.2011

Default Date- 07.12.2011

Payments made/acknowledged - NO

Contains;

CCA – NO

Notice of Assignment- NO

Chase Letters – NO

Statement of Account - YES

 

Other than 2011/2012 I’ve had no other issues and everything has now dropped off my credit files, I’d just like to put this to bed.

I would be grateful of any help you may be able to give.

 

Thanks

Can you just confirm the dates again please. I see that account number one started by 15 June and yet by 29 June – only two weeks later you had defaulted. Is this correct?

 

Also in the others, you are unable to say if or when you made any payments. I think we need more help

Apologies, those dates are taken from the SAR pack from Lantern.

 

With regards to the payments, I put down 'Payments made/acknowledged - NO' I haven't made any payments or acknowledged any of them, they don't have anything in the SAR that confirms otherwise either.

 

I've attached a snapshot of the SAR form.

 

Thanks

… As above – but out of curiosity, are you saying that you you borrowed this money and didn't make a single payment on any of the accounts?

Well without going into why I got into difficulty in 2011/12, I ended up with various debts for which I did pay back in full including 2 to Motormile, these were included within the SAR. I wasn't actually aware of the ones listed above until recently, I wasn't being chased, the letters they sent for 2 of the accounts above we're sent to a very old address the other 2 they haven't chased..

 

On the 27th September this year Lantern sent me a chase via email with 1 reference number which covers those 4 accounts, I then sent the SAR and we're now here.

not thought about starting an irresponsible lending complaint again each lender

so you say you've cleared some dent with the fleecers at MMF?

 

as long as the debts you've stated above have had no payment in 6yrs ...then send the SB letter for each one.

 

they probably though they could try it on with those as well as they'd mugged you on the others when in all truth they probably didn't need paying at all.

I have thought about however I've not explored it at all.

 

MMF caught me at a time when I had a mortgage offer, exchanged contracts on a new build and I awaiting completion date, I didn't want to run the risk so I paid them, in hindsight I should of looked deeper into it.

well stop blindly replying to emails too!

its NOT a recognised form of communications for debts and is a very cheap way to threaten you.

 

any emails from people that try and fleece you out of money like a dca should be BLOCKED AND BOUNCED BACK.

 

make the write then you have a papertrail.

 

pers i'd be getting an IRL complaint running to back PDL lender you have used

could be worth £1000's if not in refunds but in write-offs too.

Update.

 

I posted out the SB letters last week (recorded) and I also emailed them copies as well. They have responded today saying that the debts are not statute barred as a payment was made on the account in October 2016.

 

In total I had 6 accounts with MMF all under different account numbers,

2 of them are settled,

the SAR shows this however it seems as though they have tried to 'wrap up' the 6 accounts under 1 reference number and they are saying that this 1 combined account isn't statute barred.

 

Surely they cannot combine multiple accounts into 1?!

 

I have written a letter stating that the accounts should be listed individually and they should notice that I sent them individual letters for each account number.

who were the original creditor?

did the loans refinance each other? i'e the next settled the previous?

 

you shouldn't be using email at all.

block and bounce theirs back writing ONLY.

 

you also shouldnt be writing back without checking here 1st its the correct thing to do.

its simply invites letter tennis when there is no need to re-state your case.

I haven't sent the letter as yet.

 

The accounts were for different creditors. It seems they have only recently packaged them into 1 new reference number.

When I paid the 2 settled accounts they were under their own account numbers, the SAR shows 6 different account numbers.

I didn't include the 2 settled accounts within the SB letters.

 

MMF response was saying the 1 overall reference number couldn't be SB as I had paid some of it in 2016.

When I paid the settled accounts in 2016 this new overall account number didn't even exist!

shouldnt have paid them in the first place!!

you should have launched IRL complaints against the original creditors

go do that now.

 

No MMF cant lump everything into one account number with them

and then when you pay off 2 of the loans [you did SPECIFICALLY state which 2 account numbers and the original creditors name these payments were against?] claim it holds off SB on the others just because those accounts are part of your overall dealing with them.
