    • Thanks for that. I'll keep you informed
    • agree with all that HB, but biden certainly didn't excel, and difficult as that is with a garbage spouter like the bean stain coloured Trump, it is what he needs to be able to not just handle - but show up as the spoiling garbage it is. Grown ups don't win by allowing spoiled children free reign in their tantrums.   Admittedly the host failed miserably, but Bidens preparedness was clearly sadly lacking.  
    • Good morning I've attached the reply I've received from Marquis in response to my letter of claim.I would like to add a few things that I consider important. I first reported the heater fault on August 3rd. That was the 42 day since purchase, but Marquis had had the van for 12 days so the clock stops as I understand it so it was the 30th day which means that the fault was present when it was sold. They had had one chance to repair and failed to investigate any further. I think the cost that they are refusing to pay are more than reasonable. An offer of a tank of diesel world have settled part of it.   And they are definitely not getting a copy of my bank statement   Although I am sure that I'm not obliged to use the Warranty provided I've been reading my Warranty document and it says it's administered by "A1 guarantee ltd "and they are who I should ring to make a claim.The email address to make a complaint is a "global ins" email. i find it very confusing as in the front of the schedule it says "This guarantee is a non-insured product, any obligation to repair your motorhome will be our sole responsibility. Should we cease to trade, then this product will no longer be valid"

    • 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

I recently contacted a firm of barristers to consolidate and help me get rid of my debts.

 

However I'm not sure I've done right thing

I'm paying 85Pound a month for 2 years

at the end of which I will continue to pay a bit less.

 

I'm not sure where all my money goes as I didn't fully understand.

Would I have rights to cancel with them

 

 As I'm still getting letters from creditors and have to explain that I have TLC acting for me.

You'll have to tell us a lot more about your debts and who TLC is and what the deal is.

My debt was in total £5000

I saw advert saying write off debts government backed.

 

I entered into contract and pay £85 a month for 2 years then after that was told it would be less.

 

I think three lions chambers takes fee but not sure.

 

I still keep getting letters from my creditors asking for payments.

 

I dont know if I can cancel with them they are barristers based in Birmingham.

Hi guys, nice to be here again.

Just after some advice because I smell a rat!

 

A family member is looking to enter a DMP.

He’s found the above firm online and approached them.

 

They purport to be a firm of lawyers/barristers and are relatively new so there’s not a lot of information on the internet about them. However, I’m extremely dubious regarding their methods, this is what they’ve told him so far-

 

In the first instance he stops paying his debts now and they give him a reference number to quote when the phone calls start.

 

He will pay nothing to his creditors for the next 12 months but he will pay a £120 per month fee to them while they approach his creditors.

 

They also talk a lot about challenging contracts, interest rates, irresponsible lending etc, but nothing initially about debt management.

 

After the 12 months has elapsed, they then consider his/their position regarding any successes of freezing interest, debt write-off, lowered payments etc and decide a way forward that “could” result in a debt management plan.

 

oh yes, he was also told on the phone that they could “almost” guarantee that 80% of his debts would be written off.

 

Now I know you are all going to say that this is one big s*@m, and I totally agree with that. But I would like to hear any thoughts on this as to be honest, I’ve never heard of anything like this before so any experiences would be gratefully received.

Thanks all

I am using these atm and dont know if I've made right choice. Dont know if I can come out of contract with them do you have any advice please

Hi Francis,

sorry Ive only just seen this but Ill tell you what has happened to date.

 

As Ive already said,

my son began paying £120 a month to them with very little understanding of what they were supposed to be doing other than some vague promise of having some of his debts written off in the near future.

 

At that time there were also vague promises of some sort of DMP being set up after 12 months of him paying this money but nothing was ever put into writing - it was always promises by phone calls.

 

He had 9 separate creditors amounting to around £9000.

After 5 months only 4 of the creditors were willing to deal with 3 Lions,

the others wouldn't recognise them as a debt management firm and were constantly calling him and sending the usual threatening letters.

 

Once we got to the bottom of it,

it turned out that the £120 a month for the first 12 months was just a fee they charged to look into his contracts and see if they could be voided in some way.

 

But after that 12 months had passed,

they were not very forthcoming on whether a DMP or other form of debt management plan would be put into place. It didn't fill me with much confidence.

All they ever told him when he rang was not to worry, they were sorting it!

 

Luckily, in their original contract (then), the option to cancel at any time was available which I also thought a little strange coming from a team of barristers.

 

We cancelled the contract but by this time some of his creditors were threatening court action so we got in touch with Stepchange.

They were pretty good and acted swiftly.

All his creditors had to accept them, the letters and threats finally stopped.

 

Although he was only around £9000 in debt, he was paying just over £1100 each month out.

Stepchange reduced it to £247 a month.

 

Lesson learned!

I think they've now gone bump.  Ray Austin Williams (Barrister) resigned earlier this year (see Companies House).  WebSite gone too.

 

If you paid via direct debit (I paid via GoCardLess) then ring GoCardLess and do a chargeback under the direct debit guarantee scheme
