    • I'm very sorry but this is very scant information and it certainly doesn't lay out the story in the way that I asked. Also there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't identify the courier. as long as you are straight dealing and honest then it is better to bring things out in the open. we don't play secret squirrel here or get into any skulduggery. we are very pleased to help you and support you but you will have to lay things out in the open so can we can fully understand and provide us with the information that we have asked for  
    • Thank you BankFodder for the feedback and learning; here is the chronology which encapsulates the 'story'.  All parcels listed below were never delivered (for no apparent reason - the reason stated on the messages I received was that 'customer has no knowledge of purchases' ) by the courier who I'm cautious not to name in case there are legal implications for me personally. This matter is now in the Court system. I would be grateful if you could please confirm that you have seen the defence.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

i don't want to make any more mistakes , as i am not really familiar with legal stuff. and cannot really afford to lose any more money, so i just decided to cough up and take this as a learning experi

Thanks for letting us know, we all make mistakes, so don't be hard on yourself. 

ignore now

until/unless one of their favourite paperwork only fake/tame solicitors send a 'letter before/of claim'

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

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

and they

Ignore everything until you get a letter before claim/action (whatever wording they use). Expect some scary letters from debt collectors with lots of red ink, but just laugh and file - they have zero powers to do anything. In the meantime it's wasting VCS's money for being so silly.

 

Under no circumstances do you appeal to IAS. They are not independent and will reject, simply handing VCS a piece of paper to wave in court as proof that the "independent" IAS agreed with them that the charge was due.

 

When (if) you get a LBA you throw everything at them.

hi,

i keep taking out their letter and pondering over it, i have read other posts , some of them win and some lose at court.

 

i dont know if  i will have enough evidence to back me up at court, as my only defence is

late receipt of original letter ( as there was no date stamp on envelope). dont know how i will be able to prove this.

and not driver at time of  incident.

i am not very good at talking and panic, i already have high bp and heart related illness.

should i just ask driver at time of incident to pay,  (if they agree to do so ).?

Put the letter away and get on with your life.  

 

Follow the advice of ericsbrother and Mrs O'Frog. You have a complete answer to any potention court claim if they pursue you as you were not the driver and they have not complied with POFA2012 to create Registered Keeper liability.

 

These lowlife PPC's rely on 'worrier' victims such as yourself who read their letters without seeing the errors that they make. dx100 can be a bit brusque in his replies but is nonetheless correct. 😡

 

 

My time as a Police Officer and subsequently time working within the Motor Trade gives me certain insights into the problems that consumers may encounter.

To add to what Gick just said. Well, we would say not to pay. Ericsbrother told you that they can't take you to court if you weren't the driver on the day and you don't have to tell them who was.

 

It's up to you to decide if you want to fight this if it ever gets to court or fold as the PPC would like you to.

understand that these bandits can only make money by making mosleading statements and bullying. You know they are in the wrong but you also knwo that they wont make any money of they do the honest thing so unfortunatley they may very well take you to court in the hope that you wet yourself and pay up. You also know that the amount they are demanding isnt a lawful sum because the POFA limits that and as you werent the driver they cant lawfully pursue you but again that wont stop them.

 

This does mean that they may take you to court and then what? well they wil have to pay for that pleaseure, follow certyain procedures and then turn up at your local court on the day and present a case to a judge that is wholly compelling. We already knwo that they dont ahve a compelling case so doing all of this will just cost them more money for no return on their investment. It would also strengthen your case should you decide to sue them for breach of the GDPR (telling lies to get your keeper details) but that is some distance away as far as this goes.

What you must do is understand it is all for them to prove their claim, you have your answers and it wont cost you anything.

 

You dotn need to be good at talking, you will submit your evidence and statements beforehand and all you have to do is be able to read from it. You can also take along a friend or lay representative if you wish, there are people that do that for next to nothing and they get their travel costs back from the claimant anyway along with yours. We will support and advise you shoudl they decide to try and look tough and start a fight they cnat win. You just need some self belief.

 

the only time we have recommended anyone to name the driver is when the driver has wanted to take on the fight or when the driver has died and thus all liability with them (only 1 case!) Other than that,  we advise peopel to stick to their guns as the more peopel do the right thing then the less likely the parking cowboys are going to continue to do the wrong thing and lose money by doing so. They only act the way they do is beacuse peopel do pay them whether they actually have a claim or not.

 

If I sent you a demand for £2000 for no reason you would certainly fight it but because the amount is say £100, most people can afford to pay that and do so and whine about it afterwards. we want the parking co's to behave properly, if they do that then we dont need to exist as helpers and commentators or their activities.

The crew is right do not pay, if you had been a copper in a police car parked up on a call in the precinct and it overstayed, VCS would send the police an invoice and they would likely tell VCS to Foxtrot Oscar.  they will do their best to make you pay, if an LBA arrives one of ericsbrother's acidic responses should discourage them from trying to sue you.

We could do with some help from you.

thanks for all the support to everyone who has replied, you have boosted my confidence and i will take your advice.

 

brassneck, - your Foxtrot Oscar made me chuckle and brought a smile to my face. - thank you, first time i've come across this.

 

i did not mind dx100's reply at all, in fact i was rather amused by his/her brusqueness. (think thats right word).

 

think i've been watching too much of ---'can't pay , we'll take it away'--- and didn't want bailiffs landing on doorstep.

CEL have tried it on by having Ashley trying to charge £250 for writing the witless statement.  that got chucked out of court but like all of this, it requires peopel to actually see though the lies and take them on.

so you have read the entire transcript of the Beavis decision then?

 

nor have they. Beat them at their own game and read it and you will see that there is little that is relevant as far as current advice goes. Basically it says that parking co's dont have to show a schedule of loss to claim their money for breach of contract as long as the (what was a penalty) charge is not unconscionable and that was originally said to be £80.

 

Nowhwere does it say they can break the law by adding  another £60 unicorn food tax just because you didnt pay up when they first said you should.

i have been reading some posts relating to this matter, however, none of the situations seem similar to mine.

 

i have not received request for a letter, but there are some income/expenditure forms and a 'reply form'

 

what does 'cag'  and EB mean?

CAG is Consumer Action Group, this Forum, EB is ericsbrother who has posted many letters that rebut the PPC's ground for claim.

how about this as a response.

Dear Simple Simon,

you know damned well that you have no cause for action but your recorded and ridiculed belief that you know better than judges do will no doubt cloud your judgement on this matter and you will be likely to start a civil claim against me anyway. Tht is fine by me, I look forward to a day out at your expense and am minded to counterclaim for breach of the GDPR just to ensure you dont drop the claim when it becomes obvious that I am not going to wet myself and pay up. I will remind you that VCS v Phillip is the persuasive case for quantum of damages  and Vidal Hall and others v Google for the case law to allow me to bite you back in the first place.

I look forward to common sense overriding your avarice and that this is now the last that will ever needed to be said on the matter

 

 

 

stop hiding in fear and come out into the sunshine

next step?

do i leave the LBC to one side and not reply to it, or reply using above script and fill in the income/expenditure form,

 

or as i have read on another thread

go to moneyclaim website and do the AOC

 

i have not received any court documentation as yet

 

received LBC,   standard financial statement,    and a reply form, which asks,

do you owe debt

 

owe some debt

 

dont know wether i   owe  debt

 

i dispute debt.
