    • I understand that you may have suffered an injury and that you have memory problems. Obviously is not a good situation. However, you have to engage with this thread closely if you want to make headway. It is difficult for us to take an interest and then find that there is no contact for two months and then we have to start again refreshing our memories and being enthusiastic about supporting you. If your lack of contact is because of a memory problem then I think that you probably should make a note on a Post-it or something and put it in a prominent place so that you can remember to get back to us. It is very important for you – because you can be certain that the one people won't forget are Vodafone and eventually their debt collectors who will start to put pressure on you and start to make your life very uncomfortable indeed. I see that back in January I advise you to send Vodafone an SAR. Have you done this? It is an essential step. Also, as a matter of interest are you still with Vodafone? I'm afraid Vodafone are a very troublesome company. They are very inefficient – the only thing they seem to be really good about is about debt collection. There are extremely poor at dealing with problems when things go wrong. The one company we haven't had any complaints about so far is GifFGaff and they offer month by month no contract Sim cards. In effect they sent Sim cards out like confetti and no contract is ever started until the Sim card is actually activated in a telephone. This means that there can be no mistake and no commitment until you have actually made the choice to open your phone, put the card in and then to switch on the service. Even then, you are only bound for a month and then another month and then another month and another month – but you choose. As I say, we've had no complaints here. Have you sent Vodafone the SAR?

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

hi all

 

took out a loan with Blemain on 25/09/07 ,is due to finish 25/09/2017

 

£11k loan ,interest charge £11,316.77 plus brokers fee £1375 and acceptance fee £310

 

all together £24,001,77

agreement states 120 monthly payments of £200.02 interest rate 14.40% variable

 

totals £24,002,40

 

have never missed a monthly payment ,

only receive a yearly statement ,

 

going on their calculations there will be a shortfall of at least £5,000

,have received the occasional letter that they will charge the account for not issueing them with a copy of buildings insurance straight away,

admin fee is always £30.00

and insurance charge is a contingency one ,

which they never say the cost and does NOT appear on the yearly statement,

 

all that appears on the yearly statement is interest charge 14.40% ,

 

They do however state they charge interest on what they consider to be late charges ,insurance charge being one of them ,mmmmmmmmmm £5,000 of extra charges over the loan period, me thinks they make rules up as they go along

 

so in short guys

 

last payment this month ,

there will be at least a £5,000 shortfall ,

so what do i do,

 

the debits should stop anyway

,but they will contact me about the ridiculous shortfall ,

who do i contact about this ,am getting in a right state about this

 

kindest regards

 

Robert

update by myself the monthly payments of £200.02 were calculated at 19.9% over 10 years ,it would appear the 14.40% interest charge is in addition to the original ie: making it a whopping 34.3 % in total,surely illegal ,how on earth do they get away with it

Have had similar problem with another company in the same group. There a nasty company and you will need a firm of solicitors willing to take them on. Be aware they play dirty and I have had to change my solicitors twice. If you want any assistance or compare notes then I will try and assist but my hands are quite tied at the moment as my case is subject to appeal.

Get reclaiming!!

Did you already have buildings ins with another lender

 

All the fees can be reclaimed and all the fake insurances

 

Sar them

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...

you need a clear and understandable breakdown of your account that includes all penalties, charges and add-ons, If they are saying you owe money they need to prove it

Blemain / Together is a nasty rip off company that are so embarrassed they have had to change their name to enable them to continue ripping people off.
