    • Suspect that the claim may need to be heard in HK instead of the UK as you are no longer resident over here.    Let the guys come along and advise.
    • I sent one to Together Money- who are Blemain I believe?  Unless there's another address ? I sent one by post to the address on the Together site...
    • Hi I have received not one but three of the same PAP letters (just different amounts and details) from Moriarty Law, allegedly for three different ADCB credit cards taken out in UAE in 2009 for a total debt they claim is now almost 200,000 pounds across the three accounts.    I think I may have had one credit card from them, but there was nowhere near that amount outstanding, if anything, when I left the UAE for good on September 30, 2010.   There is a difference with my case, however and I need some advice.    I have lived in Hong Kong since 2012 (I am a permanent resident there) and the letters have been sent to my elderly mother's address, which is where my UK bank account is registered, and have been forwarded to me. Though they are dated August 20 and 21 I only received them yesterday.   There are also two follow-up "Final demand before proceedings letter" both dated September 8. In previous years there have only been various DCA letters sent which have all been ignored My queries are this:   1. What would happens if the letters were returned with a note that this person is "no longer lives at this address" - moved abroad”   2. Or should I return the PAP reply form anyway as set out on this forum but with no address on it (it might confuse them with a Hong Kong stamp on the envelope I guess)   3. If I do that, should I send the three forms separately or together?   4. Should I return it saying I have left the country adn not to send any more correspondece to my old address? 5 Or is there any other advice you can give.    I am not sure if I reveal that I am in Hong Kong that could stop UK proceedings, could I have a CCJ in absentia and could it be enforced, or whether could chase me for it in Hong Kong which has a similar statue of limitation law to UK?   Thanks for any speedy advice. Time is short because it takes four or five days for post to get between UK and HK.

    • Hi   Repair and Support Plan states: If your product goes wrong after the 3rd Repair, you can request a replacement.(The faults must be mechanical they say e.g Hard Drive as opposed to physical/accidental to qualify for replacement/vouchers).   My Laptop has had 4 Hard Drive replacements. They are attempting to claim that a corner being missing when the laptop went in for repair over rides Hard Drive Failure and are therefore claiming my laptop has had only 3 repairs.   Also Well fix in 7 days or replacement-1 of the repairs took almost a month. Ive refused delivery of my `fixed` laptop now for 3 months while arguing to and fro with them that they have breached the support plan and I want replacement vouchers.They are now charging me £50 to store my laptop and are going to dispose of it in 6 days if I dont contact them. Been through usual channels..Consumer advice... just found out they wont participate in ADR. I loathe this company they are a disgrace. Ive paid A support Plan £11 per month for over 8 years. Im aware how bad they are and how many people they have shafted. Anyone any idea where I stand ..what I do?I dont want them to get away with broaching the policy as well as binning my laptop.Im left with nothing.

Hello all

 

Just thought I would see if anyone knows about, or know anyone who deals in overseas travel insurance for people with pre-existining medical conditions.

 

Basically traveling to Saint Vincent in the Caribbean at the start of February for 2-4 weeks.

 

Medical condition is multiply myeloma. And the person has been in remission for 6 months, also having a successful stem cell transplant in July/August.

 

There is maybe another part to this story which maybe required, but it’s very new information in that the person has also had to be admitted to hospital for a couple nights following a chest infection and has to take antibiotics.

 

Anyway hope someone knows a firm who deals in insuring cancer patients who have finished their treatment, and had a successful stem cell transplant. x

Hi.

 

People here may know of companies, but you also have the option of talking to a local insurance broker who deals with travel policies. A good one will know which companies are likely to view this favourably.

This may be a good starting point https://community.macmillan.org.uk/cancer_experiences/travel_insurance/?_ga=2.247816007.1930939390.1547735185-890866969.1547735185

 

Getting travel insurance for serious illnesses can be a daunting task. I was once quoted £1500 for a week in Spain - cardio problems. There is no easy fix and unfortunately you appear to be going to one of the most expensive regions there is for insurance purposes.

There are various specialist companies, but they can be more expensive. If you have travel insurance via Bank account or existing annual policy, most companies will underwrite additional health risks for an extra premium.


We could do with some help from you.

Thanks for all the replies. Coincidentally, was listening to a programme on 5 live a few weeks ago, about youngsters who'd been in remission who were quoted thousands for a weeks holiday in the med, so yep big issue. Think they are trying to ghet a change in the law so thatif youve been i remission for xxx, then it does not need to be declared, but whatever, I need to sort myself ouit as I will be going away imminently.

 

I'd found something online fpr £400 which i'f be happy with. Now I am back on my feet, i'm on the ball and will be doing some proper research.. Tried a local one, and they put a couple quotes through, declined at both, so will go online for this.

 

And UB, yes i;d thouhgt of the bank insurance so will investigate that avenue as well. Cheers guys
