    • Yes, sorry it’s £5000 not £7000 that I’ve spent on repairs. I know it sounds ridiculous, but originally I was quoted £1800 for the gearbox. As I’d bought the car and obviously wasn’t going to get anything back from the promised warranty from Yew Tree cars, it was a decision that seemed the most realistic under the circumstances. But then the scenario gets worse and it gets to a stage that you’ve invested such and such amount, constantly being assured that once this job is done the car will be in A1 condition…… To summarise: Car bought 29th December 2020  Went to Autoessentials aka 169UK beginning of January 2021. Amount paid to above £5000
    • Just ignore it.  Despite their bluster G24 haven't dared take any of the "six of you" on CAG to court.
    • Jack Wilkinson  His address is one of those virtual offices, ie the actual business doesn’t operate from there and nobody seems to know where his garage is. However it’s 3 The Drive, Jubilee House, Brentwood, Essex, CM13 3FR I have paid him £5000 to date He’s place is about 2.5 hours away from me, but I currently live most of the year in France. I’ll attach the only piece of written evidence that I have from him. This was supposed to have been a report on the condition of the vehicle for my court case against Yew Tree Cars, but is pretty useless to be honest. He telephoned me last week to say that he was ill with Covid, but would be back at work the following Monday and the car would be returned tomorrow (4th December 2021). I sent him a text with information that I required from him before I would accept delivery of the vehicle (£175 each way). Text is added as an image below. This morning I had a phone call from his wife, with no caller id, who said that he was very ill in hospital with Covid, but he should be out on Monday. she said that they were going to take  the car to be MOT’d (it did have a 12 month MOT on it when it was collected last January) but apparently one of the 2 turbos has gone. She said Jack was going to source a replacement (obviously from a breakers yard) and fit it for free. Then it was discovered that the entire engine has to come out to fit it, which is going to cost in the region of £2000! Obviously I have no intention of paying anymore money to this person. The call ended with her telling me that Jack would telephone me next week to discuss it. Under normal circumstances one would imagine that him getting Covid is credible, but with his track record, I just see it as another delaying tactic. The forum that I found this information on is https://www.vwt4forum.co.uk/threads/ecu-solutions-brentwood-essex-any-reviews.1776159/page-4   I’m in the situation of not knowing what work he has actually done. I have no idea whether he is telling me the truth or anything. A thought that crossed my mind, after reading people’s posts on the VW site, is that he uses his customers vehicles to take parts from for other cars and then waits until a similar car comes in to replace them. I just can’t figure out the scam here, but there definitely is one! TEXT SENT ON 26/12/2021 Dear Jack, Further to our telephone conversation yesterday, I request the following from you please: 1. A full breakdown, including receipts, for the payment made to you by bank transfer to your account named 169UK for the amount of £3000 paid on the 14/01/2021. 2. A full breakdown, including receipts, for the payment made to you by bank transfer to your account named 169UK for the amount of £2000 paid on 05/02/2021. 3. Your VAT number and address of your business premises. The car wash centre where customers are requested to deliver/collect their vehicles from is not acceptable. Neither is the ‘dummy’ office that you use at Jubilee House, Brentwood, Essex. This is not your business premises. Under UK law, it is a legal requirement for you to provide this. You advised me yesterday that my vehicle will be returned to me by the end of next week, being 03/12/21. Before accepting receipt of the vehicle, the following is required: The documents requested in points 1-3, to be sent by email to **************@gmail.com  A photograph of the current mileage. A video of the exterior and interior of the vehicle. Evidence that the vehicle is running as it should be. 12 months MOT certificate. Warranty documentation for the replacement gearbox dated from 03/12/2021, again to be sent by email, before receipt of the vehicle will be accepted. Yours sincerely,   Trying to upload the photo of the document  that he sent to me by text (jpeg) but it won’t let me.  
    • Overall, the cost of the energy market failures could cost households more than £3bn, according to research from wealth management group InvestecView the full article
    • Is this the same car you bought for £4500 in December 2020 and then spent a further £7k on including a new gearbox?   And now you've spent another £5k on it (including a second replacement gearbox?) with somebody who has had the car for the last 11 months and you've had no use of it in all that time?   (I wondered if perhaps UK169 had carried out the original work and repairs after you had first bought the car last year, but you said on your other thread that you'd spent £7k on repairs, not £5k.  It's a bit confusing... )   EDIT:  Reading again, UK169 did carry out the original repairs etc after you bought it from Yew Tree although you did say on the other thread £7k not £5k.  So in the 11 months since you bought the car, it's only been in your physical possession for a couple of weeks and the rest of the time it's been with UK169?  Did you get any money back from Yew Tree?

Moneybarn court order

Hi everyone

 

Im looking for some advice,

 

i failed on repayments due to hours being reduced and income reduction, i have asked money barn for a payment holiday at the beginning which was refused, i then asked for some help as i need the car but could no longer afford the monthly payments, so asked for a new agreement, they asked me to fill out a budgeting form which i am unable to edit and send or print off as its on an odd file,

 

i have emailed them numerous times since and i am not getting any response,  im also unable to get through via phone as they are always busy, i then received an termination letter, i have since again tried to contact them, filling out the complaints email to just receive an auto response to say it will take 10 days to be looked at.

 

I then received a letter from Engage a collection company asking me to contact them which i did, they informed me Moneybarn have no complaint from me so would go ahead to collect, 2 days later 2 guys turn up with cameras and asked to take the vehicle to which i said they could not, they took pictures of my car and left.

 

I have since spoke to Engage asking what will happen next, They advised they would inform Moneybarn that i would not return goods and moneybarn would apply for a lifting order.

How am i able to stop this if l'm unable to get hold of Moneybarn.

Advice greatly needed

thanks

i will guess you mean a return of goods order as you've paid more than 1/3rd

 

when did you get the car 

how long is left to go?

 

the bottom line here is probably to do a time order.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
