    • In June Boris Johnson told the country it was our patriotic duty to go to the pub (and spread the coronavirus): that having been an effective message, the government is now mandating the early closure of pubs and restaurants in what is being called a “curfew”, as though it were the public and not the government who were a bunch of unruly children. - Steven Poole     and Some real-world Facts from around the world - to counter cjcregg alt-facts/no-facts soundbites from the whitewashing house   Covid mutations including more infectious strains and a strain which appears far more infectious in a major US metropolitan area - but it is still likely the case that only one vaccine will be needed - so far.   https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/world/2020/08/coronavirus-five-out-of-six-covid-19-subtypes-are-getting-more-infectious-study.html   https://www.marketwatch.com/story/new-research-indicates-growing-prevalence-of-possibly-more-infectious-coronavirus-strain-in-houston-area-2020-09-24   https://www.news-medical.net/news/20200924/Molecular-analysis-of-COVID-19s-second-wave-shows-mutant-viruses-linked-to-rapid-spread.aspx   https://bgr.com/2020/09/03/coronavirus-immunity-study-iceland-antibodies-duration/   https://www.health24.com/Medical/Infectious-diseases/Coronavirus/covid-19-study-suggests-one-vaccine-would-be-enough-for-all-coronavirus-strains-20200903
    • Morning  I am sorry for this unacceptable delay on my behalf, however I never thought a simple complaint letter would cause me so much stress along with anger towards this company 🙄 however I only have this weekend to get things rolling. I should be back at hospital Monday (as long as they don't cancel on me again) and won't be upto much for a while from then on 🤔 So please bare with me, I need to condense my letter as it's totally long winded and off in points, I'm taking the advice given for prin 6 and 7, but was also considering prin 9,  Trust is also a major part for me here:  yes I did trust they had my interests and I totally relied on their advice and judgement, which I now know was all given with their own interest in mind not mine and for their own benefit and gains, no to assist me in any way.

    • Get rid of the car? I'm not entirely sure what you mean.    The long and short of it is, he has exponentially screwed up, not only illegally, but by lying on more than one occasion, he doesn't have a defence as if a judge looked at the evidence I'd 99. 99% win. I did everything I was supposed to, he has thus far avoided any responsibility for his actions. If it means going to court in brum of he wants to put in a defence, then so be it.    If I do as you say, and I'm presuming here that you mean send the car back to him,  if he accepts it back he then has the car, my money for the car and I wouldn't just be filing for delivery then, would I?  I'd be filing for the cost of the car plus delivery.  Or do you mean sell the car to someone else?    I think I'll take advice elsewhere as so far the advice I have had elsewhere agrees with the outcome I want, for him to collect the vehicle and refund me the money, as he is by law required to do.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi All,


long time no log in!!


I've been battling with Vanquis since their email to me around July time of this year when they advised me that they were uping the minimum payment so that my balance 'can be paid off quicker'.


Yeah, right!!


Since this increase in the minimum payment, i've been sending them around £190.00 a month since August (my balance was over £3,500) and although i've seen the balance reduce, if you're clearing your balance quicker, surely the more it's reduced the less your minimum payments should be getting every month.


Not with these theiving SOB's.


I took a ROP payment holiday in September this year and they caused that up to the extent that they actually refunded me £160.00 which i thought was quite amusing, as their Customer Service people had to admit they cocked up!!


With regard to the ROP payments i had been making as well

- i thought this was only a one-off payment of £40 as that was the way it was explained to me at the time i signed up to it, but it transpires that this £40.00 was being charged EVERY month - quite a high price for a yearly 'payment holiday'. No wonder my balance never seemed to be going down before i had this removed from my account!


Another email was received around mid-November time saying 'sorry' about the mis-selling of the ROP facility and they they could have explained it better etc, etc.

Bottom line is that they have refunded me the interest AND the premiums over the amount of time i've had this and they credited my account with just over £1,270.00!


My balance is now down to £1,700 and after my remortgage is finalised very soon, that remaining balance will be paid off and these people are getting kicked into touch..... after i've told them in no uncertain words what i think of this bunch of thieves.


As others have said here - if you have a Vanquis Card, get shot of it as soon as you can.


The best thing that can happen to this bunch of blatant Rip-Off merchants is for them to go the same way as Monument did.

well done

make sure they've not added £12 penalty fees too nor trashed your credit file!!

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


DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs


NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..


If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
