    • OK,  I have not claimed anyone told us to pay in this forum.   As grown up adults we made this decision. I am sharing our experience in case it benefits anyone.    Our approach to this is if Lidl didn't help at the end we would take our shopping elsewhere and the so called reduced charge of £45 paid would be the end of the story, even if is unfair.    As I mentioned Lidl cust. service already emailed us to confirm that they have contacted Athena to cancel the charge, I'll first follow up with Lidl. If not resolved will resort to chargeback.  
    • no one ever said PAY THEM, you never ever do that.   if you paid by debit card go get it back by a chargeback to your issuing bank.      
    • Hi All,   My partner received a response from Lidl after another 3 days in which they explain the reason for their car parking system etc. but to summarize they conclude to cancel the parking charge with the below paragraph;   "In light of your comments, on this occasion only, I have requested that the parking charge is cancelled. Athena will confirm the cancellation in writing in due course."   As the £45 was going up to £90 the day before the email above actually reached us,  we actually sent the payment of £45 to Athena to remove the risk of that, but with the above conclusion we will follow up to get a refund.    Meanwhile we did our first big shopping with the car from Aldi in the local area instead of Lidl for the first time in 2+ years. As Aldi shares the car park with Matalan store in our area their car park period is 3hrs free of charge, which removes the stress of timing your shopping.   I think the supermarkets are shooting themselves in the foot with these types of measures when they use 90mins or such short periods as a time limit.   I'll post an update how the refund chase goes and how long it takes.    Thanks.

    • It will be court / legal threats then, but that's out of my experience there. Good luck with the claim and let us know how it went.

    • 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 .

Hello all... 

 

Today I received a notice email from them that someone will visit the above address within 14 days (there is no address listed) 

This is for a company I got roped into joining online back in 2016 and never received the products for so I cancelled my monthly payments for this company called Enagic. 

Nothing happened  for 3 years until

 

around a month ago when I got an email from CLI telling me that I owed £998 and that they would be chasing me for the debt owed.

Same emails as you've had above and they've sent 3 since. 

 

I am very worried about this and do not wait debt collectors at my door despite you're reassurance that they can't enforce anything.

 

Is there any actual way they will either come to the door or try to collect this debt?

Please note that I do not live at the address I was at back in 2016 and have moved several times since.

 

I am now living with my partner in our first home which we own and moved in may 2019.

 

I got into this business and I do not want to pay for something that I never received and got coaxed into joining with false promises etc.

Enagic Europe aren't a UK company and it appears that after 3 years something has been done and CLI are trying to chase me for the debt. 

 

What happens from here on out?

Do I try and seek advice or just ignore?

I've ignored every email they've sent me and as far as I'm aware the only information that they have is my email address..

. Not sure if they've ever sent a letter as I'm not at the address I was at during the time I joined the business. 

 

Back in Feb 2016 I was roped into joining a terrible business called Enagic. I was promised thousands of pounds in commission and I'd be coached through the process etc etc etc. To cut a long story short, I made no money and I wasn't coached through anything. Nor did I receive the help I was promised and I spent over £1,000 on FB ads with no success as promised. 

 

I cancelled my monthly payments to this terrible business almost straight after and I've never paid since. Nothing was said or mentioned until around 4 weeks ago when I received an email from a company called "Credit Limits International" demanding payment for this debt and they will chase me for it etc. Very threatening and making me very worried. 

 

Joining this company put me in debt with another loan for the FB ads (which I am still paying to this day) it caused me to have to put my online business to one side and get another full time job which I am still doing now. 

 

I ignored their emails (the only way they have been able to get in touch with me) and today I received an email saying they will visit my house within 14 days to chase the debt on the above address... 

 

There was no address written in the email and they've never mentioned my address or phone number etc. 

 

What shall I do?

I've been reading a few threads from people saying that they had the same and that they can't enforce anything and that they are just a DCA company that sends empty threats in hope that people will pay for something that they don't owe or that they've taken on a debt that most people were unaware of. 

 

I've moved house 6 times since I joined the business and I have only lived at my current address for 3 months.

 

I am worried they will visit my home demanding payment for something that has pretty much ruined my life for the last 3 years and I have had no communications with Enagic of CLI since I cancelled these crippling payments to this horrible business. 

 

They are trying to chase me for almost £1000. Nothing has been mentioned until August 2019 after over 3 years. 

 

Please advise me on what I should do.

 

Thank you all in advance!!! 

Any advice and reassurance would be appreciated.

 

Also, did anyone actually get a visit from these people? 

 

Thank you all!

Wouldn't it be fun to tell them you've moved to Italy and give them an address in one of the gigantic blocks with 1000 flats sharing the same address (yes, you heard it right!).

They identify the recipient by family name, but most intercoms are blank, so letters are simply left on a bench on ground floor.

So am I right in saying that they won't know where I live ?

 

On the email theyve never written my address, phone number or anything.

 

The only information that they have is my email address I think. 

 

That would be funny!!! How weird that they live like that

Did they / do they have your address etc?

I'm worried about a visit but when they don't even write an address when saying "we will visit the above address" and there's nothing written above it makes me wonder if they actually have my address and how they got it considering I've actually moved 6 times since living at the only address they should have on file. 

 

Did they also tell you within 14 working days? Or 7?

Thank you for your advice! 

 

What happens to the debt though? Surely they don't just give up? Can they enforce anything at all? 

 

Thank you again Dx!

Nothing will happen to the debt. It may exist on paper and be valid for as long as statute of limitation allows.

It's a European debt though one way or another I'm sure. Have CLI (based in UK) purchased the debt in hope that they will scaremonger me into paying? It's been 3 years since it happened so how long before this gets wiped?

Won't their client be the company (Enagic) that I owe the debt to? 

 

So Enagic are trying to chase the debt and are using a DCA to do so, does that now become their debt or are Enagic still going to try and chase me for the debt? That's what I'm stressing about

they know the debt is unenforceable, if is was they wouldnt waste their time and just get on and sue you but they cant.

 

The client company has a bad reputation for telling lies and poor service so they wont want to actually take you to court, even if they could.

 

The people you were dealing with are unlikely to have the authority to do or say anything anywayas they are agents of agents.

CLI get paid a few quid to take on cases like this and make their money out of you rather than being paid by their client.

 

if they overstep the mark they will get done for champerty and Maintenance so they will say almost anything to get you to pay up but will stop short of actual court action.

 

change your email address and block theirs.

  • 2 weeks later...

Ive now received an email of final notice before proceedings 

 

This is part of what they sent me...

 

Following non-payment of your overdue account, we have been instructed by our above client to proceed with formal recovery of the outstanding balance.

?

To avoid further action, you must make payment in full or contact us within 48 hours.

?

Failure to pay will result in further steps being taken, including legal action via the appropriate Court in your jurisdiction, which may result in:

?

- A Judgment being entered against you

- Court Fees, Solicitors and Enforcement Costs being added to the debt

- Your Credit Rating being affected

?

In any case, it is in your interest to contact us.

?

Let us remind you of your right to seek free independent legal advice from debt organisations such as the National Debtline, the Stepchange or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.

?

Whatever you decide to do, you should know that it is our client?s policy to recover all outstanding debts in full. If there is any reason why you will not be making payment today, do not ignore this letter and contact us immediately.

 

 

what do I do??? I am worried and it looks like Enagic are going to try to get this money one way or another????

So Enagic won't have anything to do with their debt now and it will just get swept under the carpet? I'm worried about Enagic themselves just as much as CLI.
