    • Hi Thankyou for your response    yes it is ! I sent of a SAR and within the comms Log Lloyds advised PRA  no CCA or paperwork available  .  hence account unenforceable.   The default is listed as PRA so does that mean it’s active ?  I can’t see a default for LLoyds on there.  I will follow your advice Thankyou 
    • i will guess this is:   a debt buyer dca cannot register a default notice    if the original creditor registered a default notice then get a copy of that  staple it to a letter to PRA and demand the account is removed from your credit file forthwith or a serious complaint will be registered with the ICO and financial compensation will be sought.   give them 14 days 
    • Good Evening,    Please may I ask for some information re default markers on Credit Report ?    I had a CC with a Bank default around Jan 2014. Nothing was registered on my Credit Report The debt was later sold on a few times. Eventually to PRA in 2017 where it is unenforceable.   On my Clearscore report that I have recently downloaded it says “ In default PRA GRoup 5th April 2017”. when I click onto this it shows no markings on any month from 2014. so my question is can PRA register the default from 2017. I’m unsure if it drops off from The bank in 2014 or after PRA registered in 2017.    thanks for any advice you can give   
    • there you go all done i thought i could see you'ed left your reg number and their PCN number in your pictures.   there are quite a few threads here on this only allowed 30mins on certain esso forecourts total rubbish ofcourse  and none haver gone anywhere so far FWIW.   dx      
    • Highly likely providing you were the first private buyer to purchase the car with HP or conditional sale outstanding the solicitors will conclude that you have good title and act accordingly  As dx says let consumer law deal with this, keep the vehicle well hidden just in case but if you turn up at the sellers work and cause problems and the Police become involved  its highly likely you will be the one with big problems

    • 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. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • 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 CAG members

 

I wonder whether anyone could help?

 

I recently received a parking charge notice from G24 that refers to a date roughly three weeks into May for the car park outside B&M Stores in Falkirk (Scotland), with an issue date a week after.

 

The car park is free but timed seemingly to 2 hours and in this case a 20 minute overstay has been flagged.

I haven't as yet responded.

 

Although I own the car, the driver, a gentle and vulnerable person who pays their taxes and wouldn't bother a fly, could easily have picked this letter up before I did, which really bothers me. And as I'm dealing at the moment with same person being bullied in bereavement by the BBC licensing people, I'm really not a happy bunny right now.

 

Unfortunately the forum won't let me post the notice as an attachment or link.

It's exactly the same one in format and text

https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?478877-CPCN-Meadow-Street-retail-park-falkirk-Scotland

 

Here's the text as near as I can get it:

 

On the rear they refer to an appeals procedure using the Independent Appeals Service and an Alternative Dispute Resolution scheme, and say, "If you appeal this charge then you will lose the ability to pay at the reduced rate."

 

Then further down it says:

 

GDPR

Please note that we have obtained the name and address of the registered keeper of the vehicle from the DVLA for the purposes of enforcing this unpaid charge...in accordance with the Road Vehicles (Registration and Licensing) Regulations 2002.

 

I'm not very familiar with law stuff so obviously I'll be having a search around the forum but my initial questions for now are:

 

- Is this really enforceable?

- As of 2018, do they really have the right to get my details from the DVLA?

 

Thanks a lot for your help.

 

BD.

Surely if this is Scotland, there is no Keeper Liabiliy,

 

 

 

Scotland opted out of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, which introduced keeper liability in England and Wales. ... Since the 2012 Act does not apply in Scotland, the registered keeper of a vehicle cannot be held liable for unpaid parking charges.8 Dec 2017

 

 

What do you reckon folks, if correct nice claim for unlawful data processin especially now GDPR is in.

We could do with some help from you.

Hi and welcome to CAG

I have just looked on Street View and I cannot zoom into the signs to be able to read them so this means another visit to B&M and get close up pictures of the signs and include the one at the entrance.

 

 

As this car park is purely for the use of B&M customers, I would be complaining to B&M.

 

 

 

As PoFA doesn't apply in Scotland, G24 can only go after the driver so it's not in your interest to name the driver. What they may try is going after the keeper on the assumption that you were the driver and you don't have to enlighten them to that fact.

 

 

As for appealing. G24 are members of the IPC who don't give a stuff about you. They are a 'boys club' where there only function is to look after their members, not you. The IAS is also biased in favour of G24, soit will do you no good appealing one iota.

 

 

The ONLY time to react is if you receive a Letter Before Action/Claim. That is the time to take action.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

This will need to be tested. This is the first case I have seen where GDPR has been mentioned when getting keeper details. A letter to the DVLA may be in order to ascertain their opinion. I bet when G24 went online to get the data, they wouldn't have mentioned Scotland

The ICO are the peopel to complain to as the DVLA is already in an awkward spot over the unfettered access they give to private parking co's.

Yes, you can sue the parking co and will win if you use the right case law as precedent but that wont stop the parking co's from trying it on wit th next person.

 

 

Again, my advice is to let them waste their money until the last and then sue them if you are mionded to but get the complaint into the ICO first. Remember that they have no reasonable cause to ask for your details in Scotland, a belief that the driver is the keeper isnt good enough so dont be puit off. The DVLA would respond in that manner so no point going there.

wont matter, the law is already decided on that point.

 

 

Just a point GPDR came into play on 25 May, your letter straddles the date, so they may have got your info before 25th from DVLA

other way round, you complain to the ICO that the DVLA is giving away yoru details withot good reason as they havent bothered to ask the company any questions about the event and whether it fits in with reasobable cause. The DVLA will pass the buck because they know that they dotn check on the parking co's and rely on them telling the truth all of the time and we know that tell ies almost 99% of the time if you take planning law and their illegal sigane into that equation.

 

 

Interesting replies, thanks all.

Will digest this, won't do anything with G24 just now but will have a read around the ICO and might consider an exploratory letter to DVLA
