    • Hi Sweet and welcome to CAG   Are you willing to disclose the employer in this case ?
    • I was the manager of an off license. We reopened on mon 30th, I received a very large delivery which we weren’t expecting (and I wasn’t told about until 2hrs before by my line manager) all managers received a text from regional manager which stated when deliveries are coming in shops are to be closed. He didn’t ring this info in, I just read the text.   When I saw how big del was (completely covered the floor, could barely move around it) I kept my shutters closed and proceeded to pack delivery away. The store remained closed and we lost 5hrs trading time. I didn’t seek permission from manager to do this, with the current safety precautions enacted (only allowed 1 customer in at a time as manadated by HQ) I didn’t feel this could be safely achieved with 3 members of staff in and all the stock everywhere.  regional manger calls into shop at 4:50, hits roof that it’s closed and storms out of shop after exclaiming I didn’t have the authority to keep shop closed.   Fast forward 1 1/2 weeks later today regional manager comes in at 4pm with prepared questions, I answer truthfully stated I didn’t think it was safe I had the best interests of business at heart that I had turned up for work every day since this incident and nothing had been said. He said that they will examine this information and can come back for more evidence if needed.    He goes away again and at 5:59 (my shift finished at 6) he came back in saying they’d examined all the evidence and that their decision was dismissal, I was to gather my things and there’d be a letter in the post with information should I wish to appeal.  quite a shock.   I will see what this letter states as their reasons I committed gross misconduct, I am a bit at a loss as to what I specifically did to be deemed gross misconduct.   I’ve worked for them for 10years, taken 2 days off sick in that entire time and had a faultless record   I’m just flabbergasted they’d immediately sack me for something which happened in unprecedented times when all I was trying to do was keep myself and my staff safe and safely make their store presentable and adequately accessible for all.   Any thoughts on the above? Obviously this is all too fresh as it happened only hours ago 
    • Hi KL1 and welcome to CAG.   You say the buyer contacted you saying, "...... he had seen it cheaper somewhere else and wanted to cancel the sale."   Do you have this in writing and, if so, in what format ?   It would be useful if you could tell us more about the item you sold.    
    • I wanted to report a success against UKPS that started in Dec 2018 and was concluded today.  I did do a bit of reading through this site for guidance though so thanks for that!    in Dec 2018 a family member reversed onto a private road in Coventry and waited about 1 minute or so to collect their partner.  Meanwhile the owner was loitering and waiting to catch anyone on his land with photos.  2 photos were taken about 40 seconds apart.   With my help I disputed the charge stating that the driver had not "parked" but had only stopped momentarily to pick up a passenger.  I did not state at any point who the driver was.   UKPS from Leamington Spa were trying to enforce this and insisted on the charge of £60 + £100 being paid.  I sent a 2nd letter confirming the position of the 1st letter and that no further letters would be sent.   4 threatening letters were sent from Debt Recovery Plus and Zenith Collections and duly ignored.  The last kindly offered to settle for £136!    Then a letter from Gladstones Sols threatening the same was also sent, and mentioned Beavis vs Parking Eye.  This was also duly ignored.   Finally a Letter Before Action was sent by email.  Aha!  Game on.  They cited Vehicle Control Services Ltd v Nick Idle and Vehicle Control Services Limited v Damen Ward and that stopping for any time is a breach, and it was only the length of time stopped that may affect the value of the breach.   I said that signage said no PARKING, not no STOPPING and that appropriate case law was JOPSON v HOMEGUARD where the judge specifically said "Merely to stop a vehicle cannot be to park it"   They then came back at me with an evidence bundle they were allegedly going to use at court against me, stated the signage was clear,  a nd repeated their "no stopping" case   I came back at them with the same as before and added that, in their world, someone coming onto the land and wanting to read the signage would have precisely NO TIME AT ALL to so as, according to them, even stopping for mere seconds was a breach.  I also threatened that I would claim costs for my wasted time in dealing the case.   Today they emailed me as follows: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Good Morning,   Thank you for your correspondence. We apologise for the delay in our response, however as no further action has taken place we trust you agree no prejudice has been suffered.   Please note that our Client has cancelled our instruction on this matter and the matter is considered closed.   No further action is warranted. Kind Regards ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   16 months on and UKPS gave in

What do u think Welcome would do if MH return to them.

 

Do you think they would issue or try another DCA?

 

Ive read on here that theyre desparate to collect so im worried they may just issue straight away

 

Thanks

They can issue a claim but they won't. They know they cannot enforce the debt without the terms and conditions. Nor can they enforce while the account is in dispute.

 

They may try and send it out to another DCA - but there are template letters on this site to deal with that if they do.

 

Welcome rarely issue claims especialy if they know they can't win.

Thanks

Just send them a short note saying you have already stated you position and that they have still failed to comply with you CCA request. State that you now consider their activities to be one of harrasment, and tht you will no longer respond tho any of their letters untill thay fully comply with your CCA request. And enclose a copy of the original account in dispute letter.

Hi Guys

 

Further development today - I had a statement through today from MH, not for the welcome loan however, for a debt i had with them a while ago for quickquid saying i still owe £23. That debt was with a JB Debt Recovery though. However. I do believe that these the same people???

 

Surely no coincendence that this has randomly shown up

I don't know of any connection between MH and JB apart

from the fact they are both in Scotland.

Have you recentley made a search on your credit file?

Searching your own credit file has no impact

and is not seen by anyone else contrary to

popular belief, it is more likely in fact the

only reason is that JBDR have just sent the

anual statement as required.

Also we are into the usual Xmas fest of

last chase the lemon debt.

Hi Brig

 

I got that from JBDR themselves.

 

QQ told me they were sending it to Mckenzie Hall and I queried that when i got a letter from JBDR.

Cant remember exactly now as it was a long time ago but it was something like

"we work closely with them as were part of same group and they pass us a lot of the debts to work on"

Hi guys, hoping somebody can help me out.

 

i had an unsecured loan of £2500 with welcome finance back in 2006.

I was obviously in difficulty at the time hence using welcome, and eventually defaulted.

I then entered into an Iva which did not go the distance, and I entered into a payment plan with all my creditors.

 

I’ll be totally honest I don’t know how much I paid back given the time that has passed, but I’m confident it surpassed the £2.5k.

I’ve ran a credit report today, only to find an entry from coast finance solutions for £3.6k showing as late payment.  

 

I couldn’t find much about them on companies house, so was dubious about writing in blind and giving them my details (I’ve moved house in the last 13 years).

I spoke to them on the phone, and they advised it is the welcome debt that was £2.5k in 2006.

 

I’ve requested a notice of assignment, DSAR and CCA by e mail, but the the question is, can they suddenly start reporting my account as “late payment” after 13 years of nothing??  

 

ive worked hard to repair my credit file, which I finally did last year, so this is a body blow.

The guy on the phone also confirmed I’d paid £10k back already, and they still want another £3.6k.

 

TIA

old and new threads merged.

 

so what was your last payment

lots of threads on coast and old welcome debts here in the welcome finance forum where your thread is now too

 

sorry but you've been here 9yrs

gone thru the mill on several debts

but you still persist in in 

ringing DCA's??

and using email....amazing.

 

 

 


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, the whole DCA industry would collapse overnight.

Hi DX - I know its far from the ideal, but I didn't want to give them my new adresss if I'm honest, to prevent being hounded.

 

Last payment was a couple of years back, I was paying via standing order

I’m very sorry if I offended you, I only came on to ask a question about credit reporting, rather than get a character assassination. 

 

i can assure you I’m not running debts from all debts,

I have made efforts to pay debts I feel are just and fare.

I am trying to fight to cowboys and have debts written off/dismissed. Absolutely! 

 

Unfortunately I am still paying from mistakes when I was nothing more than a kid when these cowboy firms took advantage.

I take full responsibility for my actions, but they also had a big part to play in the mess I got myself into. 

 

as a single dad of 2 disabled kids I don’t have much disposable income but do what I can to repay past mistakes, whilst also trying to repair years of damage on my credit file.

 

After 17 years of being in a mess, these last 18 months or so have finally seen myself repair a lot of damage, and Stuff like this out of the blue is a crushing blow to that, as I’m back to square one. 

 

I am responsible for the situation I am in, but have certainly not ran away from all of my debts

don't be too sure on that morality card toshy , throw it out the window, they do.

 

no harm in hitting them where is hurts

like a CCA request to coast.

 

and don't forget, it was defaulted more than 6yrs ago, so it cant comeback on your credit file.

so it cant ruin everything.

 

coast are a forign debt buyer that bought 10'000 of old welcome debts

simply trying to frighten people that don't know any better into wetting themselves and coughing up.

Hi dx

 

it has popped up on my credit file from nowhere,  as coast.

 

Reporting a statement as “late payment” in July 19, but states acc start date was 2006.

Only on credit karma though, equifax and Experian have no record of it

you have an SAR from welcome

find the default notice for whichever of the two welcome debts you have this is about.

then attach a copy of it to a letter to coast.

 

state they are to remove their entry on your credit file within 14days as the debt has already been defaulted by the original creditor and under ICO rules it cannot ever be re registered.

 

should you fail to comply with the above demand I will immediately open a serious complaint with the ICO and seek financial compensationfor the damage done to my credit worthiness.

 

in a sep letter

send them a CCA request.

 

you state you were paying until a couple of years back...who too?
