    • Hi Sorry but why am I getting email after email about this post sent to me ?   
    • if your loan is an unsecured loan, but you own a home were they to make you bankrupt, could you lose the home....... .............   i will assume you are talking about your wife's debts? as you've said YOU don't own a home ?  
    • Shops at the retail park beside me were mobbed today, last week the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh was as busy as it ever has been.
    • I have a loan with Commsave dx, the deductions come straight from my wages. When you join you tell them how much you want to save either weekly or monthly and you authorise them take deductions from your wages towards your savings account with them, same thing apply's when you have a loan with them.
    • I went from Virgin Media to Sky Q earlier this year as I wasn't a great fan of Tivo and was keen to try Sky Q.   When it was installed, I was offered the chance to replace my aging (ten year old) dish which I accepted.   In the last few days, I've come to the conclusion that Sky Q isn't for me and that I'd ideally like to downgrade it at the end of my contract to go back to using my old Sky+ HD box, which I still have.   Much to my surprise, I subsequently found out that the LNB on my dish would not be compatible as Q uses a special "wide band" LNB and the older boxes do not.   I contacted Sky to confirm this, which they did.   They also told me that there would be nothing they could do and that if I wanted to continue using my dish with my older box then I would have to pay to get it re-fitted myself which, after some investigation, would cost me at least £150 pounds.   The issue of future compatibility wasn't mentioned anywhere in the literature or the official Sky Q contract, but the Sky employee I was talking to agreed that it could present a problem and said that he would pass it "up the ladder" to see if the wording could be changed to better explain it to prevent any future problems - all the while telling me there was nothing they could do for me specifically.   I understand that I'm getting the service I paid for, which I have no issue with.   I understand that I'm only loaning the equipment and that it has to be returned at the end of the contract.   That I also have no problem with.   The contract also states that the dish becomes mine at the point of installation as well, which is also fine.   Basically, Sky have provided the service stated in the contract.   My problem with this is that Sky must clearly know that many people use, and still use, older boxes.   They still sell viewing cards for these older boxes, so that in itself should be enough to prove that they are aware of the compatibility issues between the two pieces of hardware.   Should there not have been even a small advisory akin to "Customers please note: Sky Q dishes are not compatible with older hardware" ?   By choosing to omit this information,  it not only prevented me from making an informed decision at installation, as I could have apparently asked for what's called a "Hybrid LNB" which would be compatible with older hardware, but it will also leave me significantly out of pocket at the end of the contract.   Is there anything in this ?.  Can I challenge this in any capacity ?.   Ideally, I'd like them to let me out of the Sky Q contract so I can downgrade to the Sky+ HD box I own, but I accept this will likely not be possible.   I'd be interested in your thoughts.   Thankyou.

    • 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

Morning CAG members,

 

Wonder if you could give some advice please. I split from my wife last year and took all the debt in my name with me (which was roughly half) - unfortunately I wasn't able to keep up on any repayments as I'm not on a massive salary and now have to rent privately and pay all bills from one wage now.

 

I explained everything to my creditors and so far so good. However, I received a letter from Nationwide in regards my loan which stated;

 

"We recently identified an issue with some of our arrears statement" goes on to apologise for their error and says "in light of this error we will not pursue court proceedings to recover this debt"

 

Further on it then asks if I want a "Notice of Correction" added which states that "Please note that this default relates to an agreement which the creditor considers to be unenforceable."

 

Should I get this added to my credit file and due to my financial situation can I stop paying this?

 

They've passed this onto ARC who have been sending me letter and called my place of work and recently sent me an income/outcome form to see what I can afford to pay. I informed them that i had a letter saying this loan was unenforceable and no legal proceedings will be pursued.

 

They informed me that no legal action will be taken but they've been asked to collect payments by Nationwide.

 

End of the day, do i have to do as ARC require, or can I just ignore this debt? If I can it would help me greatly as this is my biggest debt and am currently off my work with mental health issues.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice.

YES add that to your credit file AND STOP paying them.

 

You can completely ignore ARC, however, lodge a formal complaint with the FCA regarding their use of intimidation calling your place of work.

 

IF they are so dumb as to continue with this intimidation then you will seek financial recourse off them.

 

Keep a diary of events regarding everything, if you send them any correspondence then obtain ''proof of posting'' which is free from the PO counter.

What other debts do you have and do you want any help with them?
