    • Apologies if this rambles slightly I feel a little brain dead after yesterday    I just want to know if I'm being unreasonable in one of my points (holding them responsible for costs to possibly damaged engine if I can get an engineer report)    Basically broke down in a layby on the a43, steam from bonnet high engine temps   RAC arrives declares it a minor leak and tops up then says OK to continue (4 miles to services) then recheck and says fine to drive home   30 miles later large amount of steam from engine and lose power, get it to hard shoulder   Next rac chap arrives and says it blowing like that may have damaged engine as it now doesn't start, says it will need a crane truck as 4wd and auto says priority job as 3 children on hardshoulder in the rain (1 in wheelchair)    3 hours later, I've chased rac twice and been rung by highways agency twice (who have also complained to rac)    Tow truck arrives (flat bed) advise them we were told it needs crane and drive says its OK it will run, after cranking engine for over 5 mins drives it onto truck pouring fluid out the bottom   I can't help but feel that him cranking engine that much when pouring fluid is likely to have done alot of damage as well as being told to continue on a leaking engine    
    • Thank you. I’ll sit on my hands, for now!

    • It's not worth appealing because ECP won't listen, unfortunately, plus you can give the impression that if they lean on you, you'll pay them money when you don't need to. The only time we normally advise writing to them is if you get a Letter Before Claim/Action.   Best to say nothing for now and if you do get a LBC, we'll help you to draft something. Have a read around some other parking threads and you'll get an idea of how these people operate.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hello all.

 

I've just found this forum and have been reading through some of the very helpful guides regarding PPI.

 

I am currently in the process of helping my sister with a PPI claim against Capital One.

We've never done this sort of thing before so do have a few questions we were hoping you could help with.

 

Initially we contacted Capital One to ask if she had PPI.

They emailed back and said yes.

 

I then sent off a SAR to see what information they hold on her as we're not sure if she was mis-sold, so are trying to establish a few facts.

They responded with a pack that contained loads of statements, memos etc.

I don't think it included everything I asked for,

they said to ask again for specifics (like which telephone call exactly) and they will provide them.

 

In the statements it shows PPI,

there is also a signed copy of the CCA which indicates my sister asked for PPI.

 

She is a bit suspicious of this but that is neither here nor there,

the fact is it's signed and she has signed up to it according to this document.

 

We want to know whether it is possible she was still mis-sold though.

Ideally, we need a copy of the literature explaining what exactly PPI is and its policies that you would expect to have been sent out at the time.

This will allow us to check if she was eligible or not and perhaps claim on those grounds if she wasn't.

If she was eligible then we can at least draw a line under this and not bother complaining.

 

Is there any way of obtaining this document or information?

I understand a CCA request will just be the loan agreement which they already provided a copy of in the SAR.

I imagine they must have sent out a PPI leaflet as opposed to discussing it over the phone with her,

as the memos do not indicate any phone calls prior to the start of the PPI agreement (although they are hard to comprehend).

 

She was in part time employment at the time,

had not been in full time employment for six months prior to the agreement

which elsewhere I have read may be deemed as reasons for ineligibility and thus a mis-sale.

 

So we're not really sure how to proceed from here, if at all.

 

Thanks for reading, I appreciate any help regarding this.

I’m not sure if this helps but I didn’t do any of that.

 

I simply completed their online form stating I believe I’d been missold as I had enough cover elsewhere and 6 weeks later I received a letter stating I was due a refund of over £3,000. The cheque took a couple of weeks after that to arrive.

so within the period whereby online sign ups started

and within the period whereby it was known several online sign up cards had faults with their sites that had the PPI box already ticked

but I don't think that happened with the CAP1 site.

 

there are known issues with cap1 in that era too over the little white card activation sticker that was on the card

the card was already active

the sticker was to activate the PPI, but all it said was activate me and a number.

 

id p'haps go against the grain of normal cag advise and follow what maki did

just blindly put it a claim

 

there no get out being part time

nor unemployed as such

I think you are mixing that up with self employment.

now that would be a reason

Right, I see. Thanks.

 

Yeah, I think she must have signed up online then got sent a paper document to sign after.

 

What I find strange is on her account page on the print outs they have sent, it says 'N' next to PPI.

 

I have read several sites claiming some policies had exclusions relating to working hours and employment status in general, that is why I was thinking of trying to get the original policy document off them. I wouldn't really know what grounds to complain on otherwise.

id mention that only for now

with a covering comment that she was well aware of the PPI issue as it had already been widely publicised that it is a bad thing at that time when the whole PPI debacle was just starting.

I'm not sure I understand.

 

Just to clarify,

she has physically signed a CCA with a tick next to PPI opt in and signed it.

 

I'm not sure she can really claim she didn't sign up to it,

though it does seem to be something she mindlessly went along with rather than actively sought out

(not that constitutes a mis-sale).

she ticked the box

or it was pre ticked

or she didn't and someone ticked it later?

typed tick or written.

It is ticked with her signature underneath.

 

She must have ticked it as she has signed for it as well underneath where it says it requires a signature for PPI opt in.

 

It is a photocopy of a CCA so it's impossible to tell if it was pre-ticked but it makes no difference really as she has signed for it anyway so for all intents has consented to it.

Thanks for that link, I'll do that now.

 

I assumed you just take the total and add 8% or whatever on top but obviously it is calculated differently.

 

Do you know where it says 'claim from - claim to',

 

do I put the date the card closed in the 'claim to' section?

Link to post

claim to is the date they stopped their int

then take that sum and pop it in the statint sheet as a whole figure the day after they stopped int for the 8% calc

what are we looking at here...

I've filled in all the charges in to the CISHEET,

 

I put the date the card closed as the claim to date as I wasn't sure if it was meant to be that or something else.

 

I also put 29.94 as the interest rate, as that is what it says on the CCA.

 

This gave me a sum of £392.64.

 

I've not done the second STATINT calculation as I'm not really sure what to do there.

I put the day after the account closed in the 'from' section and it automatically filled in today's date for the 'to' section, underneath I put in the whole sum and it gives a total of £550.72.

 

This is assuming I've done it all correctly.

yep so that auto updates each day.

so

and that's only a guide.

reclaim could be worth about +£500

 

and don't for get

if the PPI reclaim fails

 

you can always get them on secret commission under a plevin claim.

well you have the sar with the info

and I assume a copy of the comms/account log and the agreement

on those it will tell you what her employment/status was from the info she told them.

 

what did she put down..thats the only info they will have

what does it say?

 

not what she knows as her situation then...

The agreement only shows the last page with her signature.

 

Her account page states she is in employment as a sales assistant, with an annual wage of £5000.

That's all it says.

 

I thought you said there were no exclusions regarding employment status though?

 

This is why I'm confused,

there doesn't appear to be a valid reason for a complaint if I can't mention her part time/temporary employment status.

 

This is why I asked about ways of obtaining the original PPI agreement to see what exactly the exclusions are.
