    • have you fund a comparator by looking at previous cases and awards? Are they all for the same event or have you suffered 3 different episodes of discrimination. If it a continuous  wrongdoing then you will look at a higher tier for say DD than you would for a single event
    • Oops. I had forgot I had already written to you guys about this. So a recap up to present date:  continued paying £20 each month, heard nothing from them. Back in 2013 they asked me to pay them rather than direct to HFC. I said I wouldn't until I got this request direct from HFC. I did get this from hsbc so I changed my payments. I got a letter from them last week asking me to contact them. I replied saying I couldn't afford more than £20 per month. I then get a phone call this afternoon which I didn't answer and a voice messsge asking me to ring them which I haven't. This debt is no longer on my Experian file. So what should I do next. Btw I only get statements when I ask for them. Certainly not every 6 months or even yearly. 
    • It won't let me post it  Ok it worked 
    • compensation is designed to put you back in a place where you started out so insurers will pay yu for a stolen watch if they cant actually replace the item with an exact same one. Now compensation is also given where recognition of a wrong is being offered so a company whose service has fallen below an acceptable level will usually send someone a gift in recognition of this. they cant be forced to offer money because you have made no loss they are responsible for so your expected eligibility doesnt have any grounding. If you had made a suggestion of what was a suitable gesture I'm sure they wouldnt have sent what they did but as the complaint was about an allergen then choccies or flowers would have been a no-no. i am sorry that things got complicated but their decision to let you decide how to distribute their largesse is commendable as well and i must say that a line has to be drawn under this somewhere.   You could ask for a discount code for your next purchase as you say you buy online as this is less in your face than asking for a voucher that may possibly be passed on in the same way that you can pass on their current offer.
    • Just to update everyone.   Witness statement, ROP letter and alleged credit agreement filed at court this morning.  I have also sent them the same which they will receive tomorrow morning.   There is nothing on my credit files, nor any searches.  The default dropped off my file a few months ago after 6 long years.  My file is completely clean now, and I'm hoping it stays that way.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Blimey!

I'm away for a few days so I'm only using a phone but this is very unexpected.

without asking them, are you able to rationalize the sum that you have received and where it leaves you in respect of them owing you money?

I think at some point soon you will have to ask them formally to justify the payment and also have a full statement of account

Absolutely no idea! I know they received the LBA, so I’m wondering if they are going through the account and realised the mistake. 

 

Either way, gonna leave it for a few days and see what comes of it all.

absolutely. Now you have received this payment I don't think you can bring your action because clearly they have paid you far more than you are claiming.

you will have to try and estimate what the situation is and then following up with a request for a statement of account.

So, thought I would log in again today to see if they have taken it away, or adjusted anything.

 

I'm now currently in credit £3037.....

 

Going to have to give them a call.

They are clearly in disarray.

Frankly I don't think you should talk to them at all until you have calculated where this leaves you in terms of who owes what to whom.

You obviously need your subject access disclosure to help you with this.

The only recommendation I can make is not to touch the money in case you need to hand some of it back.

I'm afraid that I wouldn't telephone them simply to ask about the money until I have some information to hand. You already know from your experience that you talk to different people, get different stories, nobody has particularly read the papers or know what's going on.

I think you should go carefully. Presumably they have stopped making threats.

Oh I haven't touched anything. The money still sits with npower as a credit on my account. 

 

Yeah appears the threats have stopped. Only thing I've had was a phone call acknowledging the letter of claim and that they are looking into it. Which I believe has prompted the current review of account. 

 

Guess I will just leave it for now. Not going to go ahead with the court action at moment, given they actually do seem to be doing something. Will wait until mid next week.

Sorry, I thought that the money was in your bank account.

In that case I suggest that the next step is to ask for the credit to be refunded to you to your bank account. I can't see any downside to this. There will be a procedure for this to happen and I think it then puts them in a position where they either have to stand by the fact they credited you or they then start to argue that it was an error.

I suspect if you consult the Npower website – and also the regulator rules, you will find procedures for requiring overpayments to be paid back into your account.

Ahhh okay. It'll have to call tomorrow now though. Going back into work and they'll be closed by the time I get out. 

 

I'll have a scan around the website also and see if I can find anything.

Check the rules first. You may even find that there is some website form for requiring this. Keep copies of everything that you complete. If you have to complete online forms then it may not be certain that you get a copy so take a screenshot before you click it off.

If you make phone calls then make sure that you have read our customer services guide and don't speak to anyone without recording the call.
