Hi Sparky,

 

DX is so right !!

 

Reading the experiences of others here will put your issue into context - you'll see you are just of 1,000's of folk being harassed by a gym admin Co.

 

Lots of threats but they are simply NOT followed up by action !

Hi!!

 

At what point do I write to them again or seek further advise?

 

They have resent me the same email from November, advising that the document I provided for relocation is not significant enough and my account is placed on hold for 14 days while I pay the discounted amount or get a different document for proof of relocation.

How unprofessional emailing the exact same email 2 months later!!

 

Thank you

Hi Sparky,

Looks like you've still not taken the time to read up on Harlands/CRS and how to deal with them !

 

But at least you've described them perfectly - unprofessional :lol:

 

You don't need to write to them again but you DO need to read other threads for advice and reassurance.

 

:-)

And I do hope you're embarrassing them on social media too?

 

Ignoring them is your only real option now, and lodge a formal complaint to the CMA about the gym's ineptitude, and harassment.

Hi all,

 

Today I have came home and received a letter from Major Law Solicitors on behalf of ARC on behalf of Bannatynes.

 

“Instructing me they have been sent to recover debt which is still outstanding.

Unless we hear from you within 14 days we will seek clients instructions regarding issuing a county court claim against you in Northampton County Court for the recovery.

 

The following costs will be added upon issue:

Debt balance £255.23

Court fee £25

Solicitors costs £50

Annual interest: £20.42

Now gone up to £350

 

What do I do now and who do I go back to?

 

Thank you

you go back to no-one...

 

read the letter properly

it doesn't say will anything...

 

seek clients instructions

 

its a third party , who's clients are a DCA - the 2nd party

 

a dca CANNOT TAKE YOU TO COURT

 

they don't OWN the debt..

 

only the owner - the 1st party can take you to court

and they'll not even know this letter has been sent

Incredible, they're still exploiting debtors lack of knowledge by using numerous outfits to give the impression this is being escalated.

 

I hope you've complained to the CMA regarding this?

Hi Sparky,

 

This is interesting as we've not seen Major Law Sol'rs used for many months.

 

I thought they'd given up on these gym cases because no one here on CAG ever took their threats seriously.

 

In any event, you can safely ignore them for now.

 

Or, if you want to tell them where to get off, let us know and I'll find a suitable draft that should see them scuttling off quickly.

 

:-)

I don’t understand how they can send it to a “solicitors”

when:

1: they never advised when I had to technically pay by before they took it this far

 

2: I told them back in November to look at the phone records when I spoke to the member of staff on the 10th may who said the fees would be waived

- they told me to pay £10 to access these calls as it’s by law apparently,

I have a recording of bannatynes saying they don’t have phone recordings in the branches.

 

I’m dreading this as like everyone out there can’t financially afford to pay this or go to court as I’m just lookin to get my first house and don’t want this on my back for the next 2 years with more added stress.

 

Their nothing but bullies and I can see why people give in and pay it.

Having read a lot of stuff online they have said they have ignored it

but you know when there’s that part inside you that’s thinking do you ignore it or not lol.

 

I’m taking it to CMA next week.

 

They always contact on weekends which puts you in the most rubbish mood!!! Grrrrrr!!! LOL

Thank you for your help

 

Do you think it’s worth going back to Bannatynes and asking them for evidence of the contract which I signed - pretty sure my signature didn’t actually go on the contract though!!

No, but I'd go back to the gym and complain about their treatment of customers, and then escalate it to the CMA too.

Have just sent an email complaining to the CMA about this. Thinking of the best way to approach this letter to Bannatynes without using foul language haha

I suggest you go back and read post 35.

 

and i'm not sure where you are reading

but read on CAG not elsewhere!

 

No gym has done court since they lost badly in 2012.

just because someone puts a fake/tame solicitors letterhead in the same printer the rest of the rubbish came from means nothing....

Hi Sparky,

 

You really are taking this far too seriously. The chances of this ever going to court a miniscule because the gym admin bullies know they have a poor legal basis to make any claim.

 

Of the 100's of cases i've dealt with here in the past 2 years, I can think of just 1 or 2 when a CAGger has actually paid a penny more to ARC or to Harlands/CRS.

 

We tell them to ignore and that's what they do, because nothing is done further.

 

Don't bother asking Bannatynes for the "evidence" you refer to but DO use social media (Facebook and Twitter) to tell folk how Bannatynes are happy to use bullies to pester and harass their members.

 

Court action may be the easiest way to stop the harassment - you take ARC to court. Cheap and easy !

 

But, regardless, stop worrying about the threats - it's all hot Air !

 

:-)
