    • The letter states this. Whilst it will be a claim for what my insurers have paid out, legally the claim has to be in my name? as i was the owner of the vehicle. why cant Axa just take the other insurance company/other party to court. A van hit my van on a single track, the other party was going too fast and couldnt stop in time, my insurance company said right away 50/50, lose your NCB and insurance goes up.
    • Here’s the agreement I got sent by Halifax’s with the SARs would link have what they need if Halifax send them this ? 2020-08-15 15.10.24 (Merged) copy-1 copy.pdf
    • Hi,   I've been summoned into court next month for getting caught using my younger sisters oyster card. But they also analysed her card and saw that ive used it 149 times other than that. I'm only being chargerd with the one offence and am having to pay fines and i can chose to plead guilty or not guilty.    HOWEVER the letter states "The schedule gives paticulars of 149 offences, which we suspect you of commiting but have not been charged with. If you pead guilty in person an are found guilty of any offences with which you have been charged you can, before any sentence is passed, admit all or any of the matters in the attatched schedule and ask the court to take them into considerations. This in turn will result in not being subsequenly charged with any of these matters"   I have heard that you can write a letter to try to settle out of court but who do i send the letter to as there is no contact on the summons letter?

    • I purchased a Macbook pro from very.co.uk but after 2 weeks is stopped working completely, I talked to very.co.uk electrical support and they agreed it couldn't be fixed and asked me to return the item. I returned the item and very.co.uk refunded my cc.   However I then received a letter stating that I needed to remove the MacBook from my apple account so that the machine could be accessed by very.   I ignored this at first as I thought it was a mistake as they had refunded me. However then I received a bill from them, they had added the cost of the Macbook to my account credit account on very!   I removed the Macbook from my apple account as requested and messaged them via my account to tell them.   They have now asked for a screenshot of me removing the Macbook from my Apple account, how can I provide a screenshot of an action, one that I've already performed too?   I sent a screenshot of my current devices that are registered to my account, however I can see this running as I purchased a replacement Macbook from another store and it has the same name as the returned one, I am concerned as I have an outstanding balance on my account and am being asked for payment.   There appears to be no method of talking to anyone useful at very.co.uk or of getting anything resolved very easily, they do not appear to have a complaints phone number and only provide a couple of options for complaint subjects online 'Warranty complaint', 'PPI complaint', pr Insurance', I would have thought they were obliged to provide better access than that for customers?   Has anyone had experience of dealing with very.co.uk? what's the best way I can get this resolved?    Can they recharge me for a product that I have returned, and that is faulty?   What can I do if they refuse to accept the screenshot I supplied as proof that I have removed the machine from my Apple account?

    • 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

firstplus to Elderbridge Loan

Recommended Posts

Took loan out in March 2007 for 31k

to this date balance says roughly 6k.


Rang them today to get a finalised  balance.

I have been told 18k 


as they haven't been charging us any interest.

Worked out we have  already paid 37500 over the past 14 years.


Never received any statement of account in all the years we have had this horrendous loan.


 We have  found out as of the 16th January 2016 Elderbridge put a charge on the house without our knowledge.

Today we have been informed they are not going to reduce the interest rate.

original charge was in first plus and this was sighed and witnessed on the 22/02/2007

Then today we found out from Halifax our mortgage provider that the only charge on our account is with Elderbridge who made the charge on the 16/01/2016 without our permission or consent .

that would be proper if they had followed the correct procedure.

all they needed to do was both of the parties involved inform you that they were switching the loan from one to the other.


Now as they havent done this theoretically there is no agreement of the interest rate so you cant owe them the money they now say you do.


Also the lack of annual statements make the charges unenforceable so again something to look into.


Getting a refund of the interest from Elderbridge that you paid to Firstplus would be a painful lesson for them

so a simple secured loan..

and elderbridge quite correctly got the security changed to their name en-masse, there is no need to inform you.


read those threads in that link I sent you

and get an sar off to elders and get all the statements

I would guess 99% of what they are after are unlawful penalty fees like arrears letters calls dd fail and any other fixed sum charge.


and get reclaiming
