    • No it says the search was carried out on the 9th July.  Says it was a hard search that can impact your credit score and can be seen by other lenders.    
    • Package holiday firms should promptly issue refunds to customers whose holidays have been cancelled, even in spite of the “extraordinary pressures” they are facing during the coronavirus pandemic, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) warned on Friday.   The regulator noted that consumers have a statutory right to a full cash refund within 14 days of the termination of their package holiday, even if the reasons for the cancellation are “unavoidable and extraordinary.”   “We expect businesses to comply with these requirements where package holiday contracts are terminated due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Cecilia Parker Aranha of the CMA in an open letter to package travel sector.   “We are aware that many consumers have been promised full cash refunds, but these have yet to be paid,” she said.   https://uk.yahoo.com/finance/news/coronavirus-competition-and-markets-authority-package-holiday-refunds-100214568.html
    • that is not acknowledgement.   so what if moorcroft did a search. no-one bar you and they can see it anyway i bet the search was from before the time you updated the address too.   simply a trace to find your correct address to try and mug you blind   send the sb letter as advised.   dx    
    • All I put in letter was   Account Number   please be advised of my new address    my name or husband’s    no signature    I must admit apart from 2 of them writing back to acknowledge.  One of then NatWest I’ve heard from no one else.   Natwest did email to a old email address that we have access to but never use asking for us to reply confirming our address but we never replied.   Im just unsure why Moorcroft have done a credit search yesterday. 
    • you never ever ring a DCA nor email anyway no matter what you might think is a good reason   if the debt is SB'd then send cabot our SB letter from the debt collection section of our library.   dx       so you didnt follow the advice on your other thread from earlier this tear?

    • 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

Hi everyone,

 

I've tried, and failed so many times to put together meaningful documents to send to many banks over my lending past

- so I approached The Claims Guys bacause of their offer:

 

They will contact everyone on my behalf to see if I had PPI, and then I can go ahead and claim myself.

 

I haven't yet sent back the paperwork and of course the emails, texts and phonecalls are starting to ramp up.

 

Has anyone used this facility?

 

Is there any persuasive technique someone can apply for me to just go ahead and do all of this myself?

I did start, but got stuck on my first bank and just didn't carry on.

 

Cheers

Done it myself. Let them do the donkeywork obtain account no's etc then tell them when they phone you're doing it yourself. They stop mithering then.

The claims guys do it for you. Then you ditch them with all the account numbers in hand. Worked for me.

Well, that's a lot of SARs to send and I could do with as little faffing about as possible.

 

Remember, I am unlikely to continue with them managing the claim, just getting the information for me.

Hope you have not divulged your bank account details...as they will take their fees whether they or you are successful

I can scarcely imagine that it's that easy and that the claims company will allow you to get away with it.

 

In any event, although I would not recommend anybody going with this company – The Claims Guys – or any other claims management company for that matter, I don't see any point in essentially ripping them off.

 

PPI claims are not hugely complicated although sometimes they need a bit more persistence than usual. It's a hassle, but much better to keep the extra money for yourself then give 25% or more to claims management companies.

 

I've looked at The Claims Guy's TNCs in respect of the checks and I must say that it seems a bit woolly as to what your rights are once you have had the free check.

 

I wonder what information they actually release to you if they decide that you have had PPI. It may be that they simply say that you have had it that they don't give you any details and that effectively means that you are pretty well back to zero and still have to do all the spadework.

you need to be aware there are loads o threads here whereby the claims guys latterly chase fees as soon as someone coughs up.

you need to specially in writing tell any bank that you try and reclaim from that the claims guys have not been appointed as your agent and should not be told of any successful outcomes

 

 

as when they send the sar's or make enquiries for you

they put an interest marker on the relevant PPI accounts

Thanks all for your replies. Sounds like the best option is to just not use them as there's too many opportunities where they can either go ahead and start the claims process, or attempt to claim a fee. At least in contacting them it did give me the opportunity to go through my account and address information so I do essentially have the list of banks I'll need to get in touch with.
