    • Wayne Ting, chief executive of e-scooter firm Lime, says there's room for improvement. View the full article
    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

Double whammy then really. As Steven says, they are naughty with the Insurance side of it and the Acceptance Fee they LIST in the charge for credit....but we all know and have proof they then TREAT it like credit and charge interest:

 

 

Part II

 

 

 

Credit Agreements, Hire Agreements and Linked Transactions

 

 

 

8 Consumer credit agreements

 

(1) A personal credit agreement is an agreement between an individual (“the debtor”) and any other person (“the creditor”) by which the creditor provides the debtor with credit of any amount.

 

(2) A consumer credit agreement is a personal credit agreement by which the creditor provides the debtor with credit not exceeding £25,000.

 

(3) A consumer credit agreement is a regulated agreement within the meaning of this Act if it is not an agreement (an “exempt agreement”) specified in or under section 16.

 

 

9 Meaning of credit

 

(1) In this Act “credit” includes a cash loan, and any other form of financial accommodation.

 

(2) Where credit is provided otherwise than in sterling, it shall be treated for the purposes of this Act as provided in sterling of an equivalent amount.

 

(3) Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (1), the person by whom goods are bailed or (in Scotland) hired to an individual under a hire-purchase agreement shall be taken to provide him with fixed-sum credit to finance the transaction of an amount equal to the total price of the goods less the aggregate of the deposit (if any) and the total charge for credit.

 

(4) For the purposes of this Act, an item entering into the total charge for credit shall not be treated as credit even though time is allowed for its payment.

 

This issue has been kicking about for ages and has nagged away at all of us (POst, Andie, Millymo, me! etc) The implications are huge!

 

hehe

Fantastic minds think alike :lol:

 

Can't wait to see how this plays out lol. Did you read the stuff about securities? Did you browse the sections round it about what happens if their paperwork is not right or they don't comply with your request? ;)

The more I look into it the more I think they are stuffed on this one :lol:

 

CCA clearly states :

 

For the purposes of this Act, an item entering into the total charge for credit shall not be treated as credit even though time is allowed for its payment.

 

So would that be just about every agreement they've ever written then pmsl? :lol:

 

Hi Dipply - this is exactly what I was thinking. The more I look into this the more I think welcome have got this wrong. The debate over whether they do add interest to the acceptance fee is no longer the issue because we all know they do. They even state it in their agreements, which they will point out to you when you complain.

 

However, as you say it breaches section 9(4) of the consumer credit act to treat this as credit. Also the way they put the figures on the agreement to look as if no interest is added to me is confusing and misleading.

 

I am just getting all this info together for ajudicator at FOS now. Hopefully they will come to some sort of decision soon.

 

In response to PT - If the FOS can't deem an agreement unenforceable then what do they have the power to do and in this case would I have been better taking it straight to the court?

PWC comes under scrutiny for Cattles audit

 

 

 

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC), the UK’s largest accountancy firm, is being investigated by the financial reporting regulator into its oversight of Cattles, the beleaguered sub-prime and doorstep lender.

 

The inquiry by the Accountancy and Actuarial Discipline Board (AADB), part of the Financial Reportingmag-glass_10x10.gif Council, comes after Cattles this month said that it had undertaken a clearout of senior management over a “breakdown” in its internal controls. Six senior directors were fired.

 

Cattles has been in crisis since February, when PWC raised questions over the level of impairment charges that it was taking to cover a surge in problem loans. In April, having issued two profit warnings, Cattles suspended trading in its shares and said that it would no longer be able to publish its report and accounts, due by the end of that month.

 

The AADB said today that it would investigate the preparation, approval and audit by PWC of the financial statements of Cattles and its Welcome Finance business for the year ended December 31, 2007 and interim financial statements for the first half of 2008

I have already done this about cost of credit, letter got to WF compliance Monday last week. Want to see how they wriggle out of that before clouting them with the fact that our contracts (2002 and 2003)which had no cost of credit also should be a multiple loan agreement ie PPI and cash loan, 2 catagories mixed into one. both should have seperate cost of credit brought out and signed for seperately. Double whammy I think!

Will be pleased for you to read what I wrote (it was for my daughter) as well as the charging interest on fees [problem] (acceptance fee and mortgage redemtion fee) there was other stuff about how they had added sums of money like £200 appearing on the statement at the start of the loan and other things. but going on hols this pm until next Saturday and got a lot to do. Will get into this when I come back cos these 2 contracts she has are real micky mouse and by then I hope WF would have given us a detailed reply. I gave them 7 days to acknowledge that the contract was in dispute and that it should be frozen until resolved. Probably no chance on that one!
