    • why not simply tell you supplier they have the wrong meter number you been paying for usage , and ofcourse you can view this online too so its not as if you'll owe anything you might get a nice surprise and find you are owed a refund.

    • I would add, many companies have done everything possible to manage and carry on in difficult Covid19 circumstances to supply customers with what they need.   Continually making excuses for delays is not what I'd want from an installer and maybe the £100 deposit is not so important.   Get this deposit back if you can but, more importantly, find a local installer recommended by family or friends to carry out the works.
    • Hello all,   I hope you can assist me, as I am quite lost and confused at the moment.   Two years ago I moved to my actual flat. Throughout this time I have been with EDF first and now EON. When I moved in, my landlord didn't quite know which one was my meter and I picked the one that I believed was mine (now reading you I know I should have done a burner test..). During this time, I have been paying my bills and submitting the numbers that I believed mine, which actually agreed with my consuming patterns.   Today, all the meters appeared with numbers, but the one next to the one that I was using, which appeared with a different flat number. As you might have guessed, none of them had my flat number. I have just made the test and it looks like that one may be mine.   Now, how should I proceed? I have been paying bills is not like I wanted to avoid paying, but clearly there has been an issue. Could you please advice me on how to proceed?   Lastly, in terms of meter serial number, the one that I was using matches my bill and I guess my neighbor bill. The additional doubt I have is, who is paying for my meter and why are they still providing me with gas if no one is paying the one that seems to be my real meter.   Many thanks!

    • 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!

Thanks uk but I have already sent my letter but you are right in that the above is short and to the point. I just want to make a point on the Limitations Act. Please stick around though as I am sure I will have some question on the allocation questionnaire, am reading up on it now and will definately send with the the Draft Order for Directions.Just a question though, at the end of their defence they state 'Capital One will now defend the claim on the basis that the correct amount has been paid in full. (which is the amount they offered me but about £1,000 short of my claim.Now on the front page No. 1 How much of the claim do you dispute? They have ticked that they dispute the full amount but it gives the option under that 'I admit the amount of xxx If you dispute only part of the claim you must either, pay the amount admitted to the person blah blah blah. Then send this defence to the court.

They are confusing me to say the least.

Hi doo

 

The thing we seem to be doing across quite a few posts is remind the banks about the Limitation Act. There is no Statute Of Limitations, only in America. If they are still concealing their charges even today, then we claim it all back beyond the 6 years. BF added a note above all bank charges threads a short time ago.

 

They are saying that because you have been paid out, they dispute the claim if it was to go further. Stick to your guns on this, you maybe get a reply very soon. How long did you give them?.

I think the letter they sent me was meant to panic me, quoting me Statute of Limitations and saying my calculations were wrong, well I certainly got my spready checked out by Redsonja and Bill-k. As to the six year thing they are implying I can only go back 6 years from the date of the actual claim being submitted to the court, well I started my claim with prelim in 1 Feb 07 and my first charge date was 6 Feb 01, so think I am right. I left off any earlier charges.

 

Did not actually give them a dead-line on the letter I sent - I thought it would be guided by court time-scale, well I am determined on this matter now. This afternoon I have gone through the guides for the Allocation Questionnaire and the Draft Order for Directions so I am prepared. Thanks.

Hi folks,

Just wanted to make reference to UKs letter a minute. Yep short and to the point but I would worry if you accept partial payments, as then you are taking them to court for just the interest and as we know this has been frowned upon previously. I personally would refuse any partial payments and then the whole amount can be taken to court. I know you have sent your letter doo but just wanted to point this out for other people who are watching your thread and are dealing with Capital One. I think its the wrong route to go with partial payments but that is just my honest opinion.

I have been busy, experian is not showing as a default, however it is showing in the last 36 months as number of status 1-2 is 13 and the number of status 3+ is 4 (which is not helpful) I want it all removed really so might write a letter tomorrow morning and send it of reg delivery.

 

Also hadn't had time to call call credit to see if there was any change to my file so will do that tomorrow.

Hi Redsonja

 

You are correct that we should'nt go to court on the contractual side alone, if they have offered the charges with 8% added and the court fees. As there is still some time left before the court hearing, the letter doo has sent to them is stating that the claim is already in the system with the court service. The banks are still trying to call the shots when claims have gone in. In my opinion if a claim has gone in for Contractual as well, as it is what they have charged doo on every charge, then full and final settlement is the amount on the claim form. We await the reply as they have paid out in full before.

Thanks for bringing it up. It's a long shot to see if they will adjust the figure knowing that the case is still on.

hi

 

No the part refund does not cover the charges as it was only a third of the ammount of the charges

 

I sent back a letter to say that i would only accept this ammount as part payment and would continue claim for the remaing ammount

you should be ok then, i asked because they'll try the pay the charges beck, then you'll have to claim for the C/I only, halifax have done this with me,[ and i fell for:o ] so now i've got the almost impossable task of claiming £31 in charges and £2500 in C/I:eek: , not good. so if you get another offer, do not accept it even as partial, keep the claim whole, very, very important.

i can't remember the wording i used sorry, but i'm sure doo will be able to help;)

Thanks c allen, you took the words right out of my mouth, just to add as well - beware if you have a balance on your card - you may find they pay your card off, it seems it is another way of them separating the charges from your contractual claim. As c allen says, if you allow them to repay the charges you could end up in court just fighting for the CI.

 

albbyswife I will pm you my POC this evening and will subscribe to your thread.
