    • Most contracts are subject to the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 which provide that you have a cooling off period of 14 days when you make a contract online or off premises. Unfortunately there are various exemptions and insurance contracts is one of them. It's hugely unfair in my view. Obviously if the insurance cover has already started then it may well be fair – but for a contract to start and insurance cover in the future, it seems to me that there should be a right to cancel at least until the beginning of the cover. So the answer is – yes they are entitled to levy a charge although that charge has to be reasonable and to reflect their administrative losses caused by your breach of contract. £29 sounds a little bit on the steep side and you can make an issue of it if you wanted. That means that you could require them to give you a detailed breakdown as to how this reflects their administrative losses and if you felt that you disbelieve them, you could decide to issue a claim and take it to the Small Claims Court. I would say that in the event there is a very high chance that they would back down simply because it wouldn't be worth their while to defend – but you can't bank on this and it would be a risk to you.  
    • Yes please - as requested above please will you post the claim form and the judgment in pdf format
    • Hi,   I searched online for an insurance company using compare the market. Sheila's wheels came out with the best quote so I telephoned them to arrange the purchase. After I had paid out the initial amount of £70 and agreed a direct debit I then cancelled my soon to expire Insurance policy. I immediately received an email from that insurance company informing me I no longer had my no claims bonus due to an accident last June. I telephoned Shelia's Wheels to explain that I had made an error, instead of 3 (which I had put on my original agreement), I had now been informed I had none. They put the policy up by another £300, so I asked to cancel. They now want to charge me 29 pound something for cancelling. I made the mistake with the no claims bonus because compare the market keeps a record of my information & this was what was in that information about me, including the date of my accident.    Do they  have a right to charge me? My insurance would have taken effect on the 15th November 2019.   Thank you.
    • I'm on happy pills (anti depressants) but they aren't cutting the mustard anymore and I do need to see my GP soon to see if he can help in anyway. With regards to gambling it's so complicated; through my life I have made money (as well as having had some jobs)  being a "professional gambler" (gambling where the odds are in your favour - think card counting for example, fruit machines years ago for a long time.... Other things.) But I've also been totally compulsive at the same time. It;'s so entrenched in my psyche that it's hard to imagine just giving it up totally. I also have drug issues that have plagued me and it's a shame because I am fairly intelligent and could have been successful in life in theory but mainly due to those two things (and not really having any drive, ambition, whatever... I could go on and on but this isn't a therapy forum :P) I've not managed to. I'm 36 by the way. Cheers
    • Oh I just remembered I have a long defaulted account with Halifax balance approx £3700 I believe (from around 2015) but they aren't chasing me for it or anything. It was actually over £5000 but they refunded me a load of unfair charges (their words)  This does however push me over the £20,000 limit for a DRO I think?

Just a thought . I am actually covered by a company licence by my full time job .

 

Just to respond to this (a little late in the day).

 

 

Solidworks licences will usually be sold as a "per seat" arrangement. The company you work for will have paid for a set number of licences based on the number of computers running the software. It would be highly unlikely that that licence would cover you at home unless the package was on a works laptop.

I agree.

 

There are a few 'home use programme' set-ups, usually associated with the big software companies and their major purchasers, e.g.

http://www.microsofthup.com/hupuk/faq.aspx?country_id=GB&culture=en-US

Those benefiting from the home use licensing will usually have to sign up to it, and will know they are benefiting from it (and of its T's and C's!).

Has anyone found any other people online that have been targeted and have said that they did nt take it to court ? It seems strange that i can't find anyone if a great number of people have been targeted .

no its just like acs law did and that other fleecing toerag that did the same and got done in court for it too...

 

 

they send out a few to see if its worth the expense

if they get mugs blindly paying

then off they go as they probably make a tidy kickback from the owners

typically [£50] a letter]

 

 

and a cut from anything else.

 

 

trick of this one is its all free to them a they use mail addresses

costs nothing!!

so nothing new then..for CJCH

but I see they've employed anther 30-40 employees on the back of this piracy chasing contract they are running.

 

 

so they must be raking in the money from somewhere but scant news about anyone getting their emails or phonecalls anywhere

Yes i found that thread , and another one from a guy in Sweden about 5 years ago . But they never said what happened to them .

 

And i had also seen that the solicitor was taking on staff and that they had been given £400k from the Welsh Goverment .

Prob used recorded delivery to see if theres anyone at the address, or someone with that name. So they can continue harassment.

 

Thats if it is from these idiots.

good let them waste money thinking a recorded delivery makes any difference to their [un] legal claims

 

 

I can see them getting desperate to spoof as many people they can to offset this waste of £!0'000s thaeywere give to them on a whim that has no chance at all of magically securing a return once people catch wind that their piracy claims are totally powerless stop coughing up to them.

 

 

businesses which will be the major coughers are a different matter.
