    • What happened BRS, contacted me after the accident and wanted to repair the damage i agreed i told them don't you want to go through the insurance they said no !. I said ok you can repair the damage, they asked me for more details about the damage so they could post the job on mybuilder.com. Anyway i emailed them giving them details of the damage and they never replied and ignored me.   It was only when i done a askmid and got the insurance details of 2 policies running on the vehicle and contacted Allianz the first on the list, BRS contacted me saying sorry for the lack of communication i went on holiday and left it with another staff member who failed to contact you.   BRS offered to say they want to repair the damage i said "NO" you messed me about the first time and now i want the security of going through the insurance.     I did give them one last opportunity under my terms i told them to pay ***** (fair amount)into my account and that would settle the matter and i would sign a agreement that the damages are paid in full. There reply was "that is not how we do things here and to contact their insurance" and conveniently never gave me the insurer responsible.
    • Check this and read about a Notice Of Correction     
    • There can be many reasons for dual insurance, depending on the use of the vehicle, certain hires, contracts etc, - nothing our of the ordinary there, just get the firm to confirm which one, as above don't let them dictate, they are in the wrong.    I would use you own insurers , and always advise this in cases where there is an impact claim for a  wall or similar.    Reason being is the third parties liability is for indemnity only which realistically is to pay for the damaged part of the wall and that only, they don't even have to pay for a builder, just the cost to repair, leaving you to deal and fend for yourself.    Your home  insurance cover will be on a new for old basis, giving further allowance if there any grey areas in regards to block matching, matching items (say for the welding) potential wear and tear contributing etc,    - more chance of getting more of the wall done than just the section that is damaged - plus it gives you a much better right of recourse if anything goes wrong, especially if you get a cash settlement or they use dodgy bob the builder.    Your insurer will want the third party details and will chase the responsible underwriter for their recovery, you may be able to piggy back on that. The reason for their hesitance in confirming about claiming back the XS will be due to the fact they are a home claims team and don't do an awful lot of recovery of losses compared to a motor claims department, and generally don't have as much experience on a day to day basis (or certainly not the front line staff). 
    • Give them time-amoebas are a little short on brain power to work sarcasm out. I wrote a letter similar to yours to Parking Eye and they wrote back to confirm they had received my appeal! 
    • considering it expires in Jan 2021 it looks like it has 2 insurances policies running on it at the same time, What a farce! each insurance company could blame one another this shouldn't be legal, but it looks like it is.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi All,

it's been a while since i've posted,

 

2017

- my life changed and i got married in may ,

during this time we had a house through her name as i had bad credit,

my wife and me was struggling to pay mortgage so we took a 5k max loan with repayments of £200 per month and i was paying this,

 

october 2017 i was made redundant i didn't get any pay out as i was there under a year,  

 

we spoke to amigo loans who were rude to me and my wife and we was arguing with them,

we was struggling to pay amigo and all other bills they wanted to do a wage check to see how much we can afford

- we offered £100 per month but they got angry with us and rude and threaten to take us to court.

it took a toll on our marriage, 

 

december we spoke to them again and offered £150 i was doing minimal work as it was christmas period and this took even more stress on our relationship with debts coming up. again they were rude and threatening to take us to court and we are in the boarder line to the court team.

 

Jan - 2018

we split up as everything was causing us non stop stress

- i was admitted to a mental home for 6 months

during this time i didnt have my phone until i came out

 

i was greeted with about 100 text messages and voice notes and emails to say to contact amigo,

plus suffering from depression i sent amigo an email to let them know,

 

several weeks later i got sorry to hear that you are suffering "if there anything i could do as we dont want this to happen to you we have a support line" and please contact us to discuss your payments, i emailed them to say im out of work and willing to offer £20 per month until i return back to work and got better, 

 

November 2018 - amigo emails me to say they are in process of taken me and my ex wife to court

- to avoid anything please make a payment and discuss wage affordability.

i sent a stinking email to say im still suffering from depression not working still unable to pay.

 

January 2019

- I got a email from court team to say they are going to proceed with ccj

i made a huge complaint about them, and more bad news for me i was admitted to hospital with inflamed stomach and gall stones 

 

i was admitted to hospital for two months until i was better no op date to have gall stones removed. i checked my emails every day heard nothing back,

 

I lost my my mum this year also july/august and i thought i check my noodle (credit karma ) upon result even asking them to stop interest and help me out the loan is now well over 11k, 

 

it's stressing me out and effecting my credit report i have not any credit.

Amigo has customer services who are rude they send users emails regarding payments and affordability.

Amigo then "refers to a team called court team who will process the court proceedings if there is no solution of payments" i got an email from a guy back in may to say 

 

"dear xxxxx

     As you are probably aware the default letter expired 22nd January 2018, As we are yet to have an resolution in place to clear arrears the account has been assessed for court action going forward.

 

it is extremely important that you call us today so we can try clear the arrears or put a plan in place to do so, the arrears stands as £3,873.38 <---- which i cant due to my mental health and losing my mum and depression. i did state to the guy he responds to that, 

 

Yet they still add interest and add so many defaults each month. £11,876,000 now.

Right so not actually from the courts but from their legal team that sit at the posh desk near the toilets who are allowed to use pens rather than crayons.

 

Do not respond...retain all texts and emails and sit and wait until they send you a Letter of Claim which they must as per the Pre Action Protocols before they can issue a court claim.....if and when you receive this come back here for further advice.

 

Don't worry about the interest and defaults..its irrelevant to you in your situation.

 

Andy

Ignore them, until / if you get a PAP, everything else is just noise, and not worth the paper it's written on
