    • STUPID TYPO IN MY ANGER CORRECTED.   Breaking: MPs have rejected a plan to extend free school meals into the school holidays by 322 votes to 261. The Labour motion, which was defeated by a majority of 61, would have extended provision of hot food for children until Easter 2021.   Boris Johnson had whipped Tory MPs to vote against the plan - BUT ANY WITH A SHRED OF DECENCY SHOULD HAVE VOTED FOR IT ANYWAY.   Johnson happy to give £500 million to serco to fail to gather 250 spits samples a day but will see children go hungry Utterly unfit to be considered a human being.     https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/free-school-meals-vote-marcus-rashford-boris-johnson-holidays-b1209118.html
    • Hello,   My mother took an unregulated secured loan in 2001 for a total amount of £31,075 including PPI which we have tried claiming back but was sold through broker who now don’t exist.    When we requested SAR in Oct 2019 having added up payments made up to that point and including all payments sent up to sept 2020 she has paid £81,895.40 and still owes approx £40,000 (not an updated settlement figure)    unfortunately she did default a few times in the first 3 years of the loan agreement however has not defaulted since November 2004.     We frankly can not make head nor tail of the charges and subsequent interest added on the charges.    I am so desperate to make some headway and get some clarity on what to do for her.    PLEASE PLEASE CAN SOME HELP!!!!

    • 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!

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

 

i was skimming over this,.. earlier too! you know the old saying...great minds, think alike;)

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!
