    • Any time limits AZ might spout are simply arbitrary, the ONLY thing you need to be doing is informing them ''in writing'' of your new address.   Also ensure your CRF is updated and showing your correct address also.   When you send AZ the letter which needs only to be one line......   Sir/madam.   My current address is No.1 Mickey mouse street blah blah blah, please update your records accordingly.   Regards   And obtain ''proof of posting'' which is free from the po counter, send it 2nd class post.

    • During that time my credit rating was shot yeah.    I got caught in a cycle of small payday loans with Sunny. I had an arrangement to pay with the company sunny sold the loans to.    I put in a irresponsible lending complaint and about 2 years later I won this and sunny paid me back a large chunk of what they loaned me. (had the choice to deny and push for more, but looking at it now I did the right thing)   I remember  going for the 118 loan at the time and was amazed I got it.  Then when I paid for a good 6-8months on the 118 loan I got offered the "loan top up" for another £1500. Which I of course I took 🙄.  I eventually got the total owing down to 2k (which is now 3.2k with AZ) but then ran into payment problems.    To answer your other question I have not paid any other DCA any monies.  Right now this 118 debt is the only debt I have.    Surely if I dont act quickly the likelyhood of the pushing  a CCJ is greater? Or do you believe because the debt is "toxic" that it wouldn't get that far?    Thanks again for your help. You wouldn't believe how much you have calmed my anxiety and stress.

    • 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!

X4L crs/spratt endicott harrasment over membership cancelation

Hello Everyone

 

I've noticed there is plenty of threads in regards to memberships with X4L but every single one of them seems to have some unique twist on it

 

after a long time of receiving letters from CRS and now spratt edicott

I decided to share my problem.

 

On the March 13th 2015 I started 12 month contract with X4L which I wanted to cancel before the contract ended as the membership started to hit my budget after a while.

 

Unfortunately the process to achieve this was rather difficult

with my only option to give proof of redundancy according to the first email I sent to the gym.

 

That was not possible in my case as at that time I had no job.

JI was a university student with very little cash.

 

I decided to just bite the bullet and cancel direct debit around February-March 2016 time as the contract ended.

 

From that point I started to receive letters from X4L and CRS.

 

I have sent them another email with a request to cancel my gym membership

and the response you can see in the second screenshot

 

. I have no idea where they got 1 remaining payment from as the contract finished

and my cancellation of direct debit meant I don't wish to continue with their membership.

HI would not cancel direct debit if they had an easier option to end the membership.

 

Currently I'm being harassed with calls(which are ignored) from them

and I'm constantly receiving letters from CRS

 

lately I have received a letter from spratt endicott demanding £131.49

 

I've attempted to just ignore them but they don't seem to give up

In and the advice I received from Citizen Advice was to just pay which left me bit disappointed.

 

My question is what should I do?

 

Continue to ignore them or accept my fate and pay?

Person I'd carry on the ignore route

 

But ifif if you ever get a claim form

Pop back here

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

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...

Hi Xox and welcome to CAG

 

It's not your "fate to pay" as you say above. It's their fate NOT TO GET PAID because you've found CAG who are here to help and support you !!

 

I see you said on 2/11/15 that you wanted to cancel and they refused because the m/ship only started 13/3/15.

 

1. On what date was your last payment to Harlands.

 

Stay off the phone and keep all comm's in writing only. Ignore Spratts demands completely for now.

 

:-)

We could do with some help from you

Thank you for the response. My last payment to them was in January 2016 which I thought would be February 2016 which explains the last remaining payment they want from me. This certainly was not a smart move on my side considering the situation this led me to.

Hi Xox,

 

If you paid your m/ship on 13th March 2015 and monthly thereafter, your last pay't should have been made in Feb this year.

 

If you've done some reading in this forum, you should have found a letter to send to Harlands telling them you now realise you owe them one final month's fee but no admin fees added by Harlands/CRS. And you'll pay them this once they confirm, in writing within 14 days, that they'll accept this amount in full settlement of all that's due.

 

They're usually too slow or greedy to do this so, after the 14 days is up, you refuse to deal with them any more.

 

Send this ltr to Harlands and get a free Cert of Posting from the PO counter.

 

Ignore the letter from Spratts for now. They'll do nothing.

  • 1 month later...

I have received this letter on the 9th of August as a response to the previous letter you have suggested.

Unfortunately I was unable to post this any time sooner.

 

What should be my next steps? £55 is more reasonable but I hope more can be done.

Ignore Spratts for now.

Hi Xox,

 

You offered Harlands a month's fee to settle and said, if they demanded more or failed to reply in 14 days, your offer would be withdrawn.

 

Spratts have come back on Harlands behalf demanding far more than you offered ................

 

............ so now you simply ignore Spratts and Harlands and keep us posted.
