    • you need to realise that for every person that does come to CAG and register and tell their story...there are poss 10'000 that don't but search the interweb whereby threads that are here pop up relating to like issues they are searching upon.   Most CAG siteteam and many other registered Caggers give advice that bears this in mind and post information which not only informs the starter of a thread upon what to do, but also takes into consideration the readers from the interweb that also read the relevant advice given that might not be brave enough to register and fess up.   to that end, there is very little alternative than to appear to give 'grief' [you deserve it - tough] to a cagger should certain previous advice not have been followed.....yours is a very classic case of such. hey I've found a backdoor CCJ.   to put it bluntly, had you have followed such previous advice, you most certainly would not be in the situation you are in here now.. .so by example, not giving you grief, for future readers...………..   ...never ever move without informing a debt owner of a move of address on any consumer debt that you last used or paid within the last say 7yrs. your credit file is a major key to ascertaining that information.... .but don't just read this advice come to the consumeractiongroup.co.uk website and let us help.   lecture over... what can you do..or more importantly....what can a claimant do now they have a default forthwith judgement against you. well we can't guess.... they might simply ignore it as 1000's of people with CCJ's find out..but it becomes an issue should you wish to say get a mortgage, remortgage or further credit.   i'm not going to enter into any of that here...that's for the reader to start a thread here and seek advice on their individual situation specific to them as you have done....   so...  bearing the all of the above in mind...over to you with regard to this backdoor CCJ.   as for the other debts that you didn't action before...go read your old thread and action what appropriate advice is given there for each type of debt that has been given should you wish to avoid any further backdoor CCJ's.   dx                    
    • hello my very good helpful friend. I am afraid to say that i did not. As i did not realise the relevance of it.   Should i be doing this right now of anyone on my credit file ?   Plz don't give me grief if u have already advised me...   do i do the ccs request now to everybody in that thread ?    
    • aha busted and stupid ...no wonder you've got mixed information here. never trust anything they say ..they have a very bad reputation for stating the truth.   now can you go get your credit file please..   there are cases whereby a council on historic CTAX debts do go for a county court CCJ, but a liability order from a magistrates court has far more clout legally than a county court CCJ and i've never heard of a court sending a bailiff out for 'multiple' CCJ collection.   me thinks he is pulling the wool here a bit and has looked at your credit file and seen CCJ's too so thought he'd chance his arm and use those as further leverage.   don't worry about the sat visit simply ignore do not answer the door if he appears. your task is too gather data at present.   credit file please..        
    • Hi there, the company name on the bit of paper is:   Bristow & Sutor   Says the total amount £990.49 and this includes £235 enforement stage fees,  The CTAX was owed to North Tyneside Council. The guy also said that it wasn't just for CTAX. Other debts were combined.   I did leave other debts behind too when I moved. Perhaps a utility bill, credit card debts and a Provi doorstep loan.   I think the guy said that he would be back Saturday too. This is what I'm trying to avoid multiple visits. Don't want my mam to get upset.   Thanks for the help.   Bear

Hi everyone

 

My current EDF tariff is due to expire in March and so I've been checking out various providers and tariffs to see what's out there and what's good.

 

A company called Iresa Energy have consistently been showing up at or near the top of every search on every website I've checked.

 

However... I've never heard of them before, and info and customer reviews/ratings seem a little thin on the ground.

 

So I was hoping to glean some advice/info from this wonderful place... Knowing that if you've had a lot of people talking about them on here... that's not always a good thing. :)

 

My other question is that I cannot find any info about their participation in the Warm Home Discount scheme.

 

Which brings me to my 3rd question... I applied for the WHD with EDF at the end of Sept 2016 and have received a reply that my application has been received... but not if I've been granted it yet. I've had it for the previous 2yrs and it's come in very handy with winter heating bills. The savings from Iresa over the next 12 months aren't enough to make up what the WHD gives me.

 

None of the comparison sites seem to take the HD as a factor... and companies participation via those sites is scare or non existent.

 

I've got a couple of months before my tariff ends... so not urgent, plenty of time to gather info together before the switch.

 

Thanks

Well I don't know where you are looking, but I am finding quite critical reviews of them pretty easily.

 

The trouble is, that when you see companies with great reviews – you don't know if there is great reviews have been procured in some way. When you see companies with bad reviews, you can't be certain whether it is in some competitor is decided to try and stitch them up.

As I said, info and reviews seem thin on the ground... and because there's so little info.. it's hard to judge how accurate it actually is, as you've pointed out. I figured where better to get a more accurate picture than the consumer forums that deal with all these kinds of problems... A glut of post/threads regarding them would indicate serious shortcomings... but again, info on here seems sparse.

 

A lack of info is as bad as a lot of bad info in my book... Unless I see evidence to support otherwise, I'll assume that they're just another newly established company without a proven track record and a much higher chance of going under.

Under no circumstances should you switch to this company. The customer support is non-existent. I have tried ringing their "help" desk on six occasions and never been less than 21st in the queue. After waiting five minutes the position never reduces. I filed a support ticket and after 10 days it hasn't even been reviewed. I have even tried emailing their CEO - needless to say, no response.

 

A completely hopeless outfit that needs to be shut down.

Iresa can have poor service at times I now but they are "much"cheaper than British Gas.My bill over 8 months to heat a 3 bedroom house was £420,(October to June.2017 inclusive).Last year it was £720 with BG.I did get a bill for £3600 for 1 month but after emailing them got an apology and was sorted within 24 hours.My British Gas bill last year was £1100,I estimate this year with the summer season on its way the bill will be £700 for the 12 months.
