    • With regard to your question on post 207 if you bring in the points that I made on the validity of the contract they are supposed to have with Peel holdings then mention that there are already doubts about the validity of the contracts that are being used by the PPCs and the OPS is a classic example. Once you are on there you should then try and get your other point in after that.   if it is in connection with the extra charge of £60 remind the Judge that the charge has been defined by many Court across England that the charge is an abuse of process which was covered in PE v Beavis at point 198    " The charge has to be and is set at a level which enables managers to recover the costs of operating the scheme"  IE the £100 charge covers all their expenses so nothing should be added.   as their WS claims an extra £60 that could be judged as perjurious since it is an additional sum that should be known by VCS and the author of the WS as a double recovery. Especially as they have already lost in Court for the same reason.   Another cause to prove that they do not comply with their Code of Conduct. file:///C:/Users/User/Downloads/CamScanner%2008-05-2020%2016.34.59.pdf  Byelaws are statutory not arbitrary as their WS said on no .42 .   Best of Luck.   The above URL does not work but this one does http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showtopic=133001    [20.1 is where  VCS  lost then 20.2 where they appealed and lost again . But read the whole thread as it may help you in other ways too.

    • 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!

You might want to copy those two letters to the OFT, Duffers Mum.

 

The first one breached OFT guidelines in that they must not imply that they have obtained CCJ when they havent and the 2nd confirms they were fibbing. Error my btm !!

Hi DM..I have a similar Sainsbury's Bank credit card, dated 2002...and am dealing with an Unenforeceable Agreement (missing prescribed terms). Also a defective DN.. Was just wondering, where did you get your original application from ...and did you post a copy up of it ?

Sorry, I meant the original blank form, was it 2002...and was it from a magazine, the Bank...a mailshot...applied for by post ...picked up in Sainsbury's supermarket ?

It's just I saw a case a while back...Traynor v Phoenix recoveries, where Traynor said he was given an application form in Sainsbury's supermarket...and I'm sure there was another where the guy recalled the application form 'fell out of a magazine' he had bought. both early 2000's. My application form was in the Sunday Express, as I recall...It helps if you can remember where and what you had when you signed it I guess.

Oh Duffers Mum, is this little odyssey still continuing ?????

 

Now take a good big chunk of delight out of this. 1. Wright Hazzle were caught with there pant's down telling you a porky pie, if they think they can do it,, what do you think Crapbot do.. BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I SEE ON MAY 21ST 2013 IS THEY STILL HAVE NOT TAKEN YOU TO COURT !!!!!!!!!! SPEAKS VOLUMES TO ME. IF THEY THINK THEY HAD A CASE FOR YOUR HARD EARNED THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE FASTER THAN MR BOLT.

 

I hope there is a little smile on duffers mum's face,

I was asking DM if she could recall where she obtained the blank application form from because from what I've seen of the application form they have sent her back, there is no mention of any prescribed terms on it. Not sure it even says overleaf or attached. This suggests it was a seperate leaflet perhaps to the application form ..or maybe no leaflet at all...in which case it is unenforceable (127(3))..DM would need to recall though, which she says she cannot at the moment.

 

The issue regarding Cabot charges...there should be no charges after the default is issued. in fact it is arguable if charges should be applied after the creditor has been first advised of difficulties with the account. A letter to Cabot should be sent, listing all fees/interest and compounded interest demanding a refund and advising the issue will be taken to the FOS if they fail to comply. The FOS will insist they refund...If there was any interest or fees charged by Sainsburys after you agreed a reduced payment plan, these should also be refunded too, so send them a letter too and tell them if they fail to refund, you go to the FOS with them too., The FOS will make them refund you..

I can't remember, but what they have sent is the application form and a load of t&cs printed off on a computer, I will check charges from sainsburys, I don't want to contact Cabot at the moment as they are quiet, I will wait until they start again!

oh, and head your letters OFFICIAL COMPLAINT...then they have to respond through the complaints procedures...

Formal Complaint is the correct term then they have 56 days to reply, and if they make a Final Response you can take the case to FOS.

They were making the same 'error' more than six months previously to your's Duffers Mum! Same letter sent to my OH in Oct last year for a Citi card. :!:

 

I've been looking for my Sainsbury's thread but can't find it! Will have to get my file out and update myself with it as I've received a call on my mobile, a text and now a letter today from ARC Europe. I can't remember the last time I had any correspondence regarding Sainsbury's CC.

 

I'll have a full read through your thread when I have a little more time

Where have you been hiding that CB? :wink:

 

Thank you, looks like I've got a lot of updating on it but I haven't had anything for ages that I can remember and the months go by so quickly, it may be 2009 since I heard anything!

Cabot have sent me a letter saying they have been trying to contact me as I owe £xxxx to them.

 

 

.the last I heard was in March 2013 when Wright Hassell said they were closing their file and returning it to Cabot.

 

 

Presume I shoild just ignore?

 

 

If they take to court now surely the court will wonder why they have taken 5 years and not contacted me for almost 2 years?

Courts are used to claims from anxious creditors bearing cases on brink of S B. Nothing especially unusual in a 2 year absence of contact and I'm afraid it doesn't much help you. If I were you, I wouldn't be responding to Cabot just yet.

Another little note from Cabot saying they understand how difficult it is to clear my account over a short period of time and because they are nice caring people they are prepared to reduce the balance and all I need to do is give them a call...for starters the balance wouldn't be as high if they hadn't added almost £3k of unauthorised charges, then farmed it out to a group of muppet solocators who implied cabot had a CCJ against me before closing their file and returning after they couldn't find appropriate paperwork...if they think I'm calling them they are sadly mistaken...they can jog on.....however I guess by offering me a reduction means they know they don't have the correct paperwork...I await their next letter!

Sadly not until summer 2016 as I carried on paying...I've since received a statement of account and associated garbage from them, obviously their new way of doing things...says no charges are added, not sure what.the £2.5K which has been added by them is if not charges...they really do take the Micky.
