    • I did call student loans and they don't have any record of anything and no details were coming up with the old Student Loans reference number. They were the ones who told me that the loan would have been taken over by Erudia and asked me to call them instead.
    • yes when you get your N180 from the court. on the sols copy omit phone/sig/email.
    • you dont need a copy of the letter. just proof. it might pay you to sar SLC as if they had your correct address on record before loan sales to erudio , that will add another very strong string to your bow toward setting aside this backdoor CCJ and the arrows you'll fire at Arrows (Erudio are arrows DCA in sheeps clothing)   you also might like many others find that you still have access to the online SLC portal. that could be useful with info. like deferral dates etc and address and what they knew and when.   at present you are in the info gathering stage, the more of that you can get the better.
    • IMHO i would never have a DD setup for any consumer credit debt. they are not a priority, like mortgage/rent/CTAX/Gas/Electric.   this gives you a bit more work to do, but it ensures there is always money for the priority things that can threaten the roof over your head or it's the necessary home utils needed with one.   it's also worthy to note that somethings that are unconscious priorities (though NOT!) like mobiles/phone/digital tv and broadband etc DD's often contribute to the real priorities not being paid. careful management of those needs to be exercised, like moving their payment dates to after the priorities are deal with in your calendar, or vice versa move the priorities to before those come out.   it is stunningly amazing how many families fall into priority bill debts by blindly pay these 'mentally essential luxury gadget' bills and are in total ignorance of the effect they have upon their available funds as 'they can't live without them'.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Heya,

 

Hoping I can get a bit of advice on the following.

I've emailed Ashbourne mgmt to cancel my gym membership. I signed up in December 2017 with 3 months free and then started my 12 months in March 2018. My final payment is due to come on 1st of Feb 2019 at which point I would then cancel my DD. They have replied saying I have to pay a 3 months notice fee so will pay up until May. This sounds ludicrous but would I be in my right to just cancel my DD after Feb?

 

Unfortunately, I've looked everywhere and can't find my contract and they have ignored my request to send another one:evil:

Suddenly remembering why I never wanted to join gym in the first place.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

thanks

you've told them yo are leaving all that requires is ONE month payment following that.

 

zero they can do

gyms don't do court

gym debt don't appear on credit file

any dca they use are NOT BAILIFFS

and have

ZERO legal powers.

 

dx

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...

Hi Nutri and welcome to CAG

 

Please confirm, is this Ashbourne Mgt Services Ltd. If not, tell the exact full name.

 

If it is AMSL, they are out on a limb requiring 3 month's notice and you should cancel the DD mandate when the 12th fee has been collected.

 

Let us know what they do or say when they're told the DD has been cancelled and do NOT get involved with any further exchanges with them. Stay OFF the phone as you need to keep everything in writing only.

 

:-)

We could do with some help from you

Hi Everyone, thanks for the responses. It is Ashbourne Mgmt limited services. Sorry the confusion. I think I'm going to cancel after the first of February and let them know when I have done so. Although I have already informed them this will be happening and they replied with the 3 months payment request.

 

I have looked at other threads and the other people seem to have more a valid reason, as in moving away, where as I just don't want to renew it as i can't really afford it anymore. It just frustrates me how they are still trying to make things difficult.

 

Thank you for the responses it's very much appreciated :)

Hi Nutri,

 

You need no "valid reason" once the minimum m/ship term is over.

 

Just make sure you've paid 12 monthly fees, then cancel the DD mandate direct with your bank.

 

No need to tell the gym or AMSL anything more - you did this already by email.

 

Let them come back to you when they see the DD is cancelled. Do not discuss this at all by phone and let us know what they say when they contact you.

 

:-)

I cancelled my DD after paying my final instalment on the 1st of Feb. I've just received an email from them telling me it' been cancelled and asking me to call them. Should I just ignore this, or reply to them to reiterate that I've cancelled in on purpose?

Thank you Renegadeimp. I've cancelled it via my online banking so that should be ok. I'm just nervous about the backlash. It's very helpful to have this forum for support!

Hey Nutri,

 

As we've said already, never call them for any reason.

 

Also, as I said before, if you've paid them 12 months fees, you've paid all you owe.

 

Don't respond to any demands from AMSL but keep us informed so we can advise and support you.

 

:-)

  • 1 month later...

Just a quick update. I have received 2 letters since I cancelled in February requesting me to reinstate my DD and saying I owe them £43 (no idea where this amount has come from!) They've also stated that they never received my 1st of February payment, which would've been my last one at 12 months, it's definitely come out of my bank so I'm assuming they're lying. I'm keeping all their letters for reference bit so far have ignored their requests :)

Thanks for the update.

In addition to the missing m/ship fees they want, they add £25 penalty fees, and they'll continue to pile these on. However, this will only increase the amount they ALLEGE you owe and is merely wishful thinking on their part.

Continue to ignore😎
