    • This is an area that I suppose we don't have a lot of experience in. So we will have to feel our way as best as we can – but there may be better sources of information elsewhere. You use the word "manifest" a couple of times – as if it is some kind of technical term. Does it have a special meaning?
    • Thanks and tried that route.  Seems they can for Jeeps up to about 2010, but not the newer versions.  I even tried an ex-Jeep franchise and same answer although they can service and reapir Jeeps, if a repair is done where the software needs to be updated,  I need to go to a franchsie dealer and cost is about £120.  I am wondering if a Subject Access Request can be made showing all documentation including a read out from the ECU on the Jeep?
    • Apologies Blemain finance is named on the paperwork how and what info do I put on sar  thanks 
    • You can get the warning messages interrogated at an independent, this also shows what’s been reset in the past on most cars. You could consider getting this done to see if it confirms your suspicions. But please double check that they can get resets on a Jeep
    • Indeed, I will have a chat with the solicitor first. I took a drive to the car trader yesterday (24 Oct) who sold the car in Au-2020 and they confirmed they had it, and sold it in Aug-2020 (and I have all the proof e.g. Gumtree website, and their Facebook posts). They also said they run an HPI check, and that the seller took his own finance company instead what the car trader was offering. He also said no finance company can finance a car if it is already under finance, he said just let your solicitor deal with it.   Well, it's corona period, I am unemployed now, and I don't want to 'fork out money for a solicitor with the chance loosing the car, and the money I paid for it, and the cost to a solicitor (therefore I am doing as much as possible my own research to keep the cost low). Since public transport in the UK is quite expensive, and very very time consuming, I purchased the car in case I have interviews anywhere in England, and also drive back and forth to visit my fam in Holland (which will save me more money then using the public transport./air/etc.).   Well, that the seller says he feels threatened by me is beyond me, but then again he may get advise from cronies; what I do know, he is afraid as hell if I show up at his workplace. The car rental company sells cars too, so nothing stops me to contact the company and inquire if their employee sold a car on behalf of the company as he used company properties. This is more or less a tactic from my side to pressure him so that he tells what honestly is going on and get a paper of good faith signed. Well, for now, I will ask the solicitor to do all this. It's amazing how some people, with a good job, and maybe family, can pull stunts like this without shame or fear.

    • 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!

My loan with HSBC had £3,500 added to it upfront for PPI insurance. I complained about this albeit one year later that I believed I was mis-sold this insurance as I was never given the option to take it up or not and that I was not asked about any medical conditions. I was approached by the bank that they would cancel the PPI but I would have to take a new loan out at the rate of 11% (whereas the original loan was 4%). I complained about this and lo and behold I have just received a letter returning my premiums with interest and I can take out a new loan at the original rate. Success!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We took out a loan with northern rock in January and Im quite sure I didnt sign for ppi - but a coupleof months ago I noticed a payment going out for £17.88p for ppi. I wrote and asked to see a signed application for it as im sure I didnt request it, I received a letter full of apologies fromthe insurance company - cardiff pinacle - itself and they credited my account with over £70! - now how long would I have gone on paying without knowing I actually had not asked for it inthe first place?:o I have also been paying my house insurance - buildings and contents in with my mortgage for 17 years until I realised I was paying interest on top of it - no -one ever told me so i looked around and guess what? I now pay £19 a month instead of the £55 I was paying. - scandalous!!! imagin if I could claim all of that back!

Hello, For all of you lovely people who wish to take on these financial institutes for the refund of mis-sold PPI.

 

Take heart I have been successful with 2 claims. I did not have the privilage of going to court, they settled after I threatened them.:lol:

 

1. M&S for a loan in 2001. Bit of a fight, but with determination and not taking no for an answer. Tripping them up at every opportunity with their own stupidity. I received £7,600 from them and they still denied it. I fought hard because I knew that I would never have agreed to Paying £4,600 for a ppi, if I had been given that option.

 

This is the thread if you are interested

2. Nastywest.for a loan in 2001. Still had a bit of a fight, but again they can up with over £7,111.84

 

This is this thread is you are interested.

My advise is do your homework, when you get your S.A.R - (Subject Access Request), still question and question until you get the information you need and then go and get them:lol: It worked for me.

I am getting clued up on this.

 

Endeavour Personal Finance (HSBC). Just got statements on a settled account which I repaid early. Besides showing penalty interest for early repayment it shows £3640 PPI added straight on top of the loan of £14,000. Interest was variable on the total.

 

I was yes, in financial cash flow difficulty at the time. But, I was in full time employment and my employment contract meant I would be paid for 6 months on full pay if I was sick and 6 on half pay. I think I was mis sold as I don't believe (now admittedly) that I would have taken it out if I was not told it was a condition of the loan.

 

I am phoning Endeavour today. I will ask for a copy of the insurance policy and consumer credit agreement and see what happens. Will follow it up with full SAR.

 

Fell like I have been ripped off.

 

Will let you know how I get on. Advice more than welcome please.;-)

Any advice given by me is based solely on my experience in claiming, my experience in CAG or my opinion. I have no legal background. I want to encourage others to reclaim what is theirs.

 

Got a DCA breaking OFT guidance. Complain to the OFT about the DCA. Help put an end to these practices-

24th Feb 07 Request for refund sent for miss sold PPI taken out in June 2001.

 

Amount requested £1,100 + 8% = £1473.20 ( don't know how I got that figure!!!!

 

 

12th March Letter before action

 

 

2nd April Issued Claim Form to local court for £3090 :o .

 

This figure was gained using the spreadsheets on here and after a couple of messages and advice from Hellhasnofury realising I could also claim the interest paid on the PPI (12.9%= £849.92) AND then add 8%= £942.65. Thanks Hell, owe you a beer:-D

 

 

Then heard nothing until a phonecall on 20th June to which I replied :-

 

 

Dear ,

Further to our telephone conversation this morning ( 20/06/07 ) regarding our claim for miss-sold PPI we write to clarify the following points.

As you are now aware we filled this claim on 24th February 2007 and wrote in the first instance to the Complaints Department in Andover, a copy of which is attached.

All subsequent correspondence has been filed through Tredegar Park, a copy of this is also attached for your perusal.

As we only received the standard letters asking for more time to look into this claim we carried on with the claim according to the deadlines set out in our letters.

 

We are not surprised that over 4 months later we have now received a telephone call from you stating you know nothing of this claim, despite a claim form being lodged at ******* County Court on 2nd April 2007, this claim is deemed to have been served 6th April 2007.

As I explained to you on the phone I had 3 other claims running against Lloyds at this time ( one has now been settled in full ) and it is not unusual to receive nothing or hear anything from your company until literally days before these cases are due in court, this pattern is also true for hundreds of other cases that are known to me.

As this claim has now been running for over 4 months and judgement has been passed in my favour we respectfully ask for the amount to be paid within 7 days. After talking with ****** at ******* County Court today I am now well within my rights to issue a warrant of execution to recover the money due to us, this course of action will of course incur further costs to yourselves and we feel we have no other option except to follow this route if this money is not received within the stated 7 days.

The money now due to us stands at £3090.90 plus interest at 0.65p per day from date of issue, this date as set down by the court was 6th April 2007. We calculate at today’s date this was 76 days ago and therefore request an additional £49.40.

 

I am writing to ask that you pay the amount of £3140.30 as ordered in the judgement within the next 7 days. I expect payment by cheque made payable to ********. If you fail to do this I will have no alternative but to apply for a warrant of execution to reclaim my money.

 

 

I would like to take this opportunity to say how disappointed I am that you have failed to make any effort to resolve this matter effectively. All communication from you has been limited to template letters that seem to be aimed at delaying the process rather than resolving the issues. I further believe your lack of response to my claim shares this negative aim.

 

It seems to me that the way in which Lloyds TSB are using the public court system to delay and discourage customers from reclaiming unlawful bank charges and miss sold PPI claims is immoral, and a complete waste of taxpayers’ money. Furthermore, I believe it to be a completely unnecessary abuse of an overstretched public resource.

 

I expect your response before 27th June 2007.

 

Yours Sincerely,

 

 

 

28th June SETTLED IN FULL :-D :-D ( Has anyone noticed I forgot to add in the court costs, oh well, they paid amount of the Judgement, a loss to me of about £50)

 

One thing I must say though, the girl I spoke to at Lloyds was very good and even phoned today to see if the cheque had arrived, so full credit to her. I hope one day soon that she finds employment in a decent company that deserves to have her.

 

 

So once again, thank you Hellhasnofury and everyone on this site.

 

Thats 5 claims settled in full, I love this site :-D :-D . And of course a donation is on its way once the cheque clears.

I was told by cental capital, that i could not have the 8% loan i was offered, unless i took out insurance. I needed the money, so accepted, as the new rate would have been about 12%.

 

Last week i wrote to them, saying i was miss-sold the insurance.

 

Phone call next day, offering me the full amount back, and the interest i had paid - Total repayed £500.
