    • 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!

They got me too. is there anything I need to do other than ignore them. This is what happened to me.

 

I too went to the Speke retail Park before to get some stuff in B&Q. I get back to the car and there's a ticket from these and the reason given......Obstructive Parking.

 

I accept i had parked over 2 bays, but in mitigation to me it was 10am and the car partk was empty. i do think it's inconsiderate to park this way, but at 10am....

 

Anyway this is where my case to yours and other may differ. i drove around to the security hut at the rear of the premises and asked the security guard what idiot had stuck this on my car at such a silly time. the security guard, nice enough fella looked at me shook his head in a 'I fully understand mate' way and got on the radio and called for the 'officer' sorry arsewipe. i was asked by the security guard to park up and the 'officer would turn up' He did. I asked him if he thought issuing me a ticket was unreasonable as it was so early. He replied that i had parked obstructively. i could see I wasn't going to get anywhere. I asked him if in view of the car park being empty he would be prepared to oversee this 'obstruction' He refused.

 

I regret (because I'm not like this) that I called him many names and admit I was very abusive to him. he walked away. i got in my car and went.

 

So really I'm wondering now if I'm on stoney ground as i have sort of accepted 'the charge' Reading the many posts on the forum it seems the best policy is to ignore everything which is what i intend to do. But as said i was just concerned that because of the altercation i haven't done myself any favours.

 

That said it felt good telling the little **** what i thought of him. I'm all for people making a living don't get me wrong. but this clown was simply unreasonable.

 

i will of course post my findings and keep you all informed and i will of course make a small donation to the forum that will hopefully save me £85.

You've done nothing wrong, it is a [problem] based on people not knowing their rights and thinking these clowns are official.

They gave up on my previous tickets a long while ago, Mr Sobell eventually stopped writing and all was quiet. My permit fell off my window a few days ago and i got a fresh ticket from my best friend, Mr OP0000252 (in reality a scruffy-looking chap in a s****y blue uniform), so I look forward to ignoring another lot of junk.

Received a ticket from the 'oiks' at Cheshire oaks. I appealed and admitted i was the driver and guess what the appeal failed!! I regret appealing but this was before i read this forum. I have also recived the letters from Roxburgh and now Graham White. It states 'notification of intended court action' - is the this the normal letter they send out as opposed to 'possible' court action or is this the standard speel and so if it is i will ignore

Just had letter number 2 from Graham White.It states that 'rest assured that this will not go away only by me paying up or providing defence of the ticket'

 

I am still a bit concerned - is this still part of the standard speel or have i got a more serious version of the letter????

Of course, that's part of the usual letter chain. Be assured that "Graham White" ( aka Michael David Sobell) is under investigation by the Solicitors Regulation Authority because of all the complaints made about him.

You can only provide a 'defence' to the ticket if they issue proceedings against you for county court. So take THEIR advice and ignore till they do so, might have a very long wait though.

Hi i recently parked in a private carpark, my friends baby was poorly had we had to rush him into the medical centre on a Sun 10th oct. When i came out i had a ticket for £65.00 or £100 if i dont pay within 14 days, i didnt know i was parked in a private car as it didnt look like a car park it was just a bit of land next door to the pub. When i got the ticket i did then notice there was a sign on the side of the pub which was quite high up but to be honest with you i was in a rush to get my friends baby in to see a doctor i didnt think about looking for a sign. Do you think i can appeal i cant really afford to pay this amount please help what should i do???????

 

Thank you

Well you can appeal, but I'll save you the bother and tell you what their reply will be now:

 

Appeal denied. Pay up!!

 

What you need to do instead is find a nice deep dark drawer and place the scamvoice in teh bottom. On receiving further items of their junk mail (which you unfortunatley will), these also go in the same drawer never to be worried about again.

Who was the ticket from? what does it say ? "Parking CHARGE notice"?

 

Dont reply to anything or anyone until youve answered that.

 

When this forum knows who its from ie it gets identified as a PPC then the advice can b specific to you.

 

Let us know asap.

Hi Guys,

 

Got a parking ticket yesterday from Central Ticketing. The reason for the ticket is that I walked off site, (yeah to get some money from a cash machine in the town centre to spend "on site"). Did a few errands whilst in town aand then returned to the site to go into the shop i'd originally planned to go in (COMET) and saw the ticket. Then I thought Sod It and drove off.

Are they a private company? Do I have to pay this Penalty Charge?

It is a free car-park by the way and judging from the threads i've read on here they can only claim back any costs incurred by my breach of "their" rules, so free=nothing, am I correct in my assumption?

 

Any help Appreciated

Hi matey. They are a private parking company and I have had four tickets from them over the years. I paid the first one then found this website and followed advice on here for the following three tickets...the advice goes like this.....IGNORE ALL LETTERS FROM THEM, no matter how scary they become. they will add money to the bill first, then send a solicitors letter, then a bailiffs letter, threaten to take you to court and then finally they will leave you alone. DO NOT GET INTO ANY KIND OF CONVERSTION WITH THEM. this is very important !! just ignore them. there are some template letters that you can use to fight it and one of my tickets I did go down this route and they dissapeared also but I believe the best way to deal with them is to Ignore them. They are illegal tickets and it is a [problem]!! they will never take you to court. if you can, just send the letters back "return to sender" without opening them. the address is printed on the back of the envelope . good luck.

Just to reassure others in the same position - I've just had my second Graham White letter. It stated exactly the same as Sledgehammer's post above.

 

It said that they WILL refer the matter to court within 7 days (of the letter? Of the receipt? When they feel like it?). That was two weeks ago.

 

Where's my court summons, dammit? They practically promised!

I got one last week from moorgate in bury. I was gonna pay it but when I googled central ticketing this fab site poped up:-D

 

I think I will take the ignore route after reading all 19 pages :!: and nobody ever being taken to court.

 

I could try appealing coz I got a note from commet to say I was in there, but I know what the answer will be, and by appealing I would be kinda admiting that I was the driver rather than just the registered keeper.:roll:

 

Interesting to know its the manager from halfords tippin off CT I might go in there and have myself a wewe in the camping section:lol:

 

Sorry mate the toilets are over the road and I cant go off site coz il get a ticket:madgrin:

Hi mate. dont even think of trying to appeal. there is a non exisitant appeals procedure with these companies. they just use your appeal against you as you then admit their charge !! I have gone down both routes. ive ignored them....which has worked fine so far. and i have sent the template letters (thet you will find on this site) which worked fine too. I followed the template letter rules exactly and sent each one in order. After the "cease and dissist" letter, they left me alone !!! Up to you what u decide to do but Dont Bother appealing !!! good luck man :O)

hi the flash,

glad to see you are going down the ignore route the chase they give is part of the fun:lol::lol::lol:

next time you go past moorgate just have a look at the cars parked on there with tickets on them, ct must be making a mint of the people who don't know it's a [problem] so please spread the word that you don't have to pay.

and why not point them here so they can read it for themselves.
