    • With regard to your question on post 207 if you bring in the points that I made on the validity of the contract they are supposed to have with Peel holdings then mention that there are already doubts about the validity of the contracts that are being used by the PPCs and the OPS is a classic example. Once you are on there you should then try and get your other point in after that.   if it is in connection with the extra charge of £60 remind the Judge that the charge has been defined by many Court across England that the charge is an abuse of process which was covered in PE v Beavis at point 198    " The charge has to be and is set at a level which enables managers to recover the costs of operating the scheme"  IE the £100 charge covers all their expenses so nothing should be added.   as their WS claims an extra £60 that could be judged as perjurious since it is an additional sum that should be known by VCS and the author of the WS as a double recovery. Especially as they have already lost in Court for the same reason.   Another cause to prove that they do not comply with their Code of Conduct. file:///C:/Users/User/Downloads/CamScanner%2008-05-2020%2016.34.59.pdf  Byelaws are statutory not arbitrary as their WS said on no .42 .   Best of Luck.   The above URL does not work but this one does http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showtopic=133001    [20.1 is where  VCS  lost then 20.2 where they appealed and lost again .

    • 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!

Good morning,

 

I' m new so I really appreciate your patience in understanding my problem. I have looked through and discovered these companies have been covered, however I did not understand how to proceed in dealing or in fact where to post my query, so again thanks for your patience in reading through.

 

Firstly left England over 8 years ago, I had a remaining balance on a mbna card. In the first year I recall trying to deal with them but nothing resolved and I left it through personal problems. In July 2018 a letter addressed to me was received at a family member's (with no financial connections) address, from Restons solicitors saying they are attempting to contact above person etc etc.it is an unusual surname so guess they must have used that as also same surname.

 

She called and asked why they used her address and for information, they simply said they could not speak to her about the matter as she was not the person named. So she simply told them not to use her address.

 

She since moved and has just received further correspondence, forwarded to her which she has forwarded to me, one is Notice of Application for attachment of earning order, giving Arrow Global Guernsey as debtor ( I have never had any correspondence from them, not dated and a second one dated 2 October 2018 which says Notice of Transfer of Proceedings in County Court Money Claims Centre.

 

She petrified bailiffs going to knock on door of her ex address.... I dont know how to proceed.. either claim it statute barred but to whom? Or request info of original debt.

The Notice of Transfer is to deal with the application of the AoE in your own county court....because you never responded to the court claim and now have a CCJ.

This is called executing the judgment.

 

I assume the paperwork was delivered to a previous address...we call this a back door judgment because you failed to update your address with the Creditor/DCA.

 

If you think it may be statute barred you can make application yourself to set a side the judgment for that reason...there is a fee of £255 using the N244 form

Thanks again, ok so they can enforce a judgement without me receiving any correspondence?

I gave my new address when I spoke to them in 2010, and it has not changed since.

 

I am unable to check credit file as no uk address,

is there anyway round that ie put in old address, or is that not wise?

 

Also can I request set aside N244 from outside UK?

Also how could I have responded to court claim if not received?

If you have proof they were aware of your current address..IE letter from them to your new address you can set a side and the fact that it was statute barred anyway at the time of claim is grounds enough.

 

You will have a CCJ no doubt as they couldn't execute without one. You can use previous address to check credit files also for the CCJ you can check....

 

https://www.trustonline.org.uk/..there is a small fee

 

N244 is here...

I assume you now reside in Europe...are they likely to have any success with an attachment with your employers ?

Unfortunately dont have proof they had my address.

 

I live in Italy,just winding up failed own business,so no they would not be able to claim from an employer.

 

Thanks for N244 info, on reading looks like I would have to appear which means returning to UK which would be cost prohibitive on top of the fee, is it likely they would waive this requirement...I dont want to start the process and not be able to complete?

how about proof you were residing in Italy at the date of the CCJ?

typically that's a good reason too, but if you've proof it was statute barred anyway, that's all you need.

Thanks dx100uk

 

Yes proving that would be no problem, but I am worried about the possibility of having to actually attend a hearing, as this would be difficult to go to U.K for. Would they take into consideration that I do not live there ?

you wont need to attend any hearing if you've proof its SB'd.

 

in fact we have seen fleecers remove the CCJ FOC when such information is proved to them in the past. even restons.

so have you proof it was statute barred at the time of the claim issuance?

the claimant..they fleeced you..

 

yes a debt is automatically SB'd after 6yrs of non payment/use or no signed letter from you admitting the debt...however

what you have is a backdoor CCJ, its called a roboclaim, its all automictic, NOTHING is checked by any human anywhere even the court..and it simply gets rubberstamped.

 

you will need written proof of SB status like a card statement,

now you could SAR MBNA, they have 30 days to comply though you being in Italy might extend that somewhat. that will get you everything MBNA hold on you.

or

you could ring them and ask for the last payment date, and if that's outside of 6yrs before the fleecers issued the claim then ask for that to be sent to you in WRITING>

 

at this stage eitherway you need this info, proof of living abroad at the claims issuance might get it set aside but you'll still need a defence for the debt itself.

 

however … you do realise there is nothing they can do to you anyway as you have no earnings to attach too, and if you are never returning within CCJ date +6yrs and hold no assets in the UK..pers I know what i'd do...IGNORE THEM.

Thanks for the clarification dx10uk.

 

My only concern in ignoring, as does not affect me here, but continued contact to my relatives by Court, Restons, Arrow Global or whoever else may join the party!

 

I have been trying to get a copy of my credit file but using the address I last had, 8 1/2 years does not allow me to register.

So will try trustonline as suggested by Andyorch to find out when the CCJ was issued.

well lets see if we can get the info then revisit the situation.

none of those that you mention above have any legal powers and cannot do ANYTHING other than 'annoy' your relatives...in essence that's all DCA's can do anyway.!

court bailiffs have brains and will know you are not registered anywhere in the UK, and even so theres nowt that they can nor will do against anyone ohe than you directly or your UK assets...??? do you have any?

 

TOL will give you the CCJ number [unless you already know it then theres no point in using TOL at all really.]

 

if you have the CCJ number [alpha numeric] just ring northants bulk and ask for a copy of the CCJ and the claimform by email pdf

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

Ok,

I found the CCJ through TOL,

it is dated 06/03/2013

that is 3 years since I moved from Uk.

 

Is that date relevant as far as getting statute barred or anything else for that matter.

Last contact I had with them to best of my recollection was 2010.

 

Should I wait to get a copy of claim form from Northants before contacting MBNA, and should I make any contact with Restons or Arrow?

 

Thank you..

if last payment was within 6yrs of 6/3/13 then the debt is NOT SB'd.

 

so the CCJ was attained whilst you wee not resident in the uk

but that only satisfies you by giving a reason to set the CCJ aside..

it still doesn't give you a defence for owing the debt as it was not SB.

 

pers i'd do nothing now ..go radio silent.

 

they cant harm you where you are

you have no uk assets?

so all and bugger anyone can do to you.

 

and in

 

the date makes sense now as to what they are doing as they needed to 'enforce' the CCJ within 6yrs...hence the useless AEO they've tried.

 

in summing up I would assume they know you have no uk assets , are not resident in the uk, and there was stuff all else they could try but an AEO.

 

poor restons..lost again...

Really can't remember when last payment was dx.

 

I have no UK assets, and now I know the ccj was issued almost 6 years, I'll sit it out...

 

Thank you very much for your time and patience in explaining this all to me, I've learnt alot today.

suppose the bottom line is by the time you've tried to sort it out it'll be too late.

 

don't think there is any other way they could try to enforce this.

 

but certainly be aware you might get later letters where you are from god knows who in Italy thinking they can fleece you.

 

as far I know...not chance!! they just want free money to go away on holiday because bet your bottom dollar anyone that ries anything will pocket that money..you could apply that to those you've recently encountered too in the UK....:deadhorse::deadhorse::eyebrows::tinfoil3::heh::heh:
