    • I know.   I think I remember that the morning after the referendum Boris or Nigel admitted that the £350 million for the NHS wasn't true.
    • He'll just write something on the side of a bus and that will make everything OK.  The very fact that Boris is so far ahead in the running is proof that they can get away with just about anything so will continue to lie. Seriously, it's pretty obvious they regard the electorate with contempt.
    • Good point, hightail.   And assuming Boris wins, how is he going to explain to party members that the EU won't renegotiate? Or doesn't he care because the decision will be back with Parliament?
    • Update, new tactic from Cabot?? After a quiet period I suddenly get a call to my mobile asking for me by my first name to which i answered yes, (my name) speaking. Caller then says this is Cabot Financial, my reply, never heard of you sorry. I ended the call and blocked the number ( a mobile). Ten minutes later I get a text message stating: Hi, its Cabot click this secure message link if you want to hear something beneficial to you ( or words to that effect). I deleted the message and blocked the sender but I am curious as to what this ploy is. I am guessing by clicking the secure message link I will be acknowledging the debt and thereby resetting the statute barred clock. Have any other Forum members experienced the secure message approach? Thanks in advance.
    • I doubt they really do believe it.  They believe the party membership will believe it - and they already know they'll believe just about anything.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

I am another one to add to the list of finding my car not being on the hpi basic check.


Got the car in February and today got visited by two people and a car transporter from Burlington Group acting on behalf of Car Cash Point.


The bill of sale was never produced from the Burlington operative when i asked for it, instead proceeded to get the police involved.


I should have stood my ground but instead agreed to pay off the remaining debt to keep the car. Wouldn't be able to work without it.


All i can do now is find the registered keeper and put my claim to get the money back.


My problem is with Car Cash Point & The Burlington Group who refused to give me the name of the registered keeper of the vehicle who got the loan against the car.


My initial foray into the Data Protection Act only gives me request for information on myself.


Where do i go for a request for information on a person from the files of a private company ie, (Car Cash Point).


It has been found that the past keeper of the vehicle had another registration logbook from the DVLA to sell the vehicle onto a dealership the same day they took out the loan.


I am in the process of back tracking to the two dealerships the car belonged to before me in order to get the original keepers details.


However i feel they will also abide by the data protection act.

How do i legally get this persons details.

Thank you.

Thank you for replying dx100uk.


Unfortunately, from the point of the logbook being used for a Cashpoint car loan

the vehicle went through two other change of hands before it got to me.

I am the third person in the chain to buy the car.


I know the person from whom i purchased the car from very well.

Having spoken to him he is able to provide me with the dealership name and address from where he purchased the car.

He is also going to contact this same dealership to see if they will provide details of the person who sold it to them.


This, i believe is where the dealership may or may not use the data protection act to not provide the information i require.

Is there a request for data information from a third party that i can use.

Unfortunately you have to take your friend to court. You cannot jump steps.

You take your friend to court

Your friend takes the dealership to court

The dealership takes the original owner to court.


Your contract is with you and your friend, not you and the dealrship

Thank you sgtbush.

You are right. But empathy gives me the argument that to get what i want i stand to lose a an old and very good friend. I believe he is just as much a victim in this as i am.

However, re-looking at the HPI companies including reputable ones such AA and RAC they all seem to offer extended services at extra cost (A Jaw Dropping EXTRA COST)

These extra services include the details of every owner the vehicle has had from manufacture to present date.


The point i am trying to make is pertaining to my original question.

The data protection act specifically states i can only retrieve information about myself by way of an information request and a small fee.


Yet these HPI companies seem to have gained legal standing to offer all information on any person to anyone who requests it 'For a large fee'.


Now i read a news item a few years ago the the DVLA were questioned over selling data to third party companies.

It does seem that the Data Protection Act becomes null and void when personal information is traded on to private third party companies.

News Papers have this same legal standing to acquire information on other people, companies or just about anything they want to report about.


It is this mechanism of gaining information that i want to know about. How it works. How it seems to be completely impervious to the Freedom of Information Act.

Yes, i could quite easily pay for the service offered by RAC and AA but i want to understand how it works first.
