    • It is usual policy to commence with a short tem lease, then when this ends to go onto a mothly renewable arrangement. As far as your safety is concerned it will be the same as it has been since the end of your short term tenancy. There is procedure to reclaim the property, but that is through what is called, the section 21 procedure, unless there is arrears, This gives you plenty of notice, talking months. If you are worried , the best thing to do is to talk to the new owners or their letting agents. It would be good to see the new contract the agents have given you.
    • Thank you.  Threads that point to success - or to mistakes - are very useful for motorists that will come on here in the future.   What you have done is utter insanity.  Despite being given on a plate two threads where motorists beat Athena in the same week as your case you've gone and handed over money to the fleecers.  It doesn't take much to work out that (a) not handing over money you don't owe to conmen is a better strategy than (b) handing over money you don't owe to conmen then trying to get it back.   The amount was never "going up" from £45 to £90 because it was never £45 in the first place.  It was always £0.  You were being charged for overstaying by eight seconds which is legally "de minimis" ("the law does not deal with trivialities").  You couldn't read Athena's signs anyway as the car park was pitch black!  Etc.  Etc.   Athena's position will be that you admitted the debt (otherwise why did you pay it?)  I hope chargeback goes well but often it's a battle to get banks to carry out chargeback and they will understandably be bemused as to why you paid this money if you thought you didn't owe it.  Bluntly you've just made life a million times harder for no reason.  It's like a football team manager who instructs the players to score two own goals in the first minute and then try to win the game.     That said, go for chargeback and good luck.
    • Same reason Councils like to use Agency workers at sharp end.
    • Not a fan of outsourcing in general, as I think control is lost.  And the companies used, can have problems meeting the standards required, as HB states above.    But I can see why it is attractive, as then Government department or principal company does not have additional staff with pensions and all of the other costs.   If you needed say 200 staff to cover work that would last a year, it can make sense to outsource the work, depending on what is required.    
    • That's what gets me, BN, unless these three companies have a monopoly between them.   At least two of them have been fined or had financial penalties for messing up, haven't they? And yet they still get the next job, possibly with no tendering in the current climate.

    • 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 .

Good Afternoon everyone.

 

As the title says, My wife was struggling with a credit card with Lloyds which she contacted them and they started the process of stopping the card and put the account into default.

 

recently she got a letter from Wescot saying that the debt is now being managed by them.

 

She recently has just started a new job and got her first wage. spookly, acouple of days after, wescot have texted her saying please get in contact so we can review your account.

 

she is scared that they have seen money come in and she worry's about anything and I have told her to ignore the text but just wanted to make sure.

 

We are not even sure how Wescot have her mobile phone number

 

Thanks Guys

Morning Guys, I know this is off topic but I am wondering if you kind gentleman can assist me once again.

 

RBS have replied to my PPI claim saying that I cancelled in the cooling off period and got a refund,

I have no recollection of this and basically they are saying that if I want to contest it then I have to prove it.

 

I have attached a copy of the letter. again I have no recollection of cancelling it, let a lot taking out ppi in the first place.

 

what options do I have if any ?

 

Again guys, thanks for all your help with everything.

Hi Guys, Need your sound advice again,

 

The Mrs got into trouble paying her credit card and spoke to lloyds and arranged to pay Lloyds back £5 a month. This was a few years ago. Then Wescot starting sending her mail but we ignored it.

 

My Mrs still pays Lloyds back £5 a month however recently she got a letter from Cabot asking her to contact them about the debt and they have taken over from wescot. I tore up the letter thinking its just another DCA. Now they have been attempting to ring her.

 

She is worried how they got her mobile number. Did I do the right thing? is it just another DCA trying to get her to pay more. Like I said she still pays Lloyds £5 and hasn't missed a payment.

 

Any help would be greatly received, Thanks

We didn't say send wetcloths a CCa request

because wetcloths don't buy debts they only chase for their client..whom at the time were the original creditor.

 

cabot buy debts and you would have gotten a notice of assignment to tell you so

 

as this has changed hands now.. CCA request time.

 

this has already been explain if you read from post 1

just type no need to hit quotes...

 

you should never talk on the phone about your debts to ANYONE

least of all a ZERO powers DCA

they are NOT BAILIFFS.

 

a cca request is for paperwork..they must legally hold to fleece you.

not a payment offer.

Cabot have sent another letter today, it says that they are aware we have been paying lloyds and to contact them to redirect the payment.

 

Im hoping they get my CCA letter and put 2 and 2 together as the only reference is the name on the letter and the account number.

 

i didnt use their reference number.

I guess i do nothing and wait still.

Letter was sent in the 17th of this month.

Is it 12+2 days I wait ?

 

Thanks again for all you help.

Received this letter today. Theres 2 accounts numbers on the letter, one is with i think theirs account ref no and the other is original account number which is not what we have the original account number has. The CCA request has the proper original account number on. Do I still ignore and wait for something regarding the CCA request from them.

I sent the CCA on the 18th of March and the only correspondence I have had from Cabot is a letter offering to clear the debt by only paying a third of it.

 

I am concerned that they have not put two and two together and do not realise the CCA I sent is from us, if that makes sense.

The only reference number I put on the CCA is the original credit card lloyds account number.

I didn't use any of the ones the Cabot have for us.

 

Other than that is our first and surname on the bottom of the letter. 

Maybe I should write back asking for an update on the CCA but include their reference numbers ?

they are quite aware of their legal requirements.

don't be afraid of powerless DCA's

they are not BAILIFFs

and have ZERO legal powers.
