    If you subscribed to CCI ever but no longer do I'd urge you to check your direct debits:

    SWMBO has just pointed out to me that I've been paying CCI £25-30 for some years without receiving anything and she's going back further through the bank statements.

    I very vaguely remember deciding not to renew, maybe a phone call too. I can't remember the last time I saw a CCI magazine. Do they still do them?

    My fault I know but the SWMBO deals with finances. I never look at the statements.

    So what should I have been getting for my membership money all these years?

    Just emailed them:

    Hello,

    It would appear I've been paying CCI a monthly sum by direct debit for a number of years now without receiving any benefit. Namely £24.95 in June each year.


    The last magazine I appear to have received was the October 2012 issue. I'm fairly confident I've kept all copies I've received. Certainly I've received nothing in the last 5 years plus. I vaguely recall receiving a letter from CCI ref renewal but decided not to, not realising there was a direct debit already in place.

    I appreciate this is as much my fault for not checking as it is down to possibly some glitch in your system.

    Please come back to me on this. Aside from cancelling the direct debit as soon as I can I will be seeking recompense for not having received the magazine for at least the last 8 years as far as I can tell.


    I look forward to your reply.


    Yours sincerely

    Oooh! Seems you've found an issue. In 2012, were they still blaming such things on "the computer"?

    I was called for Jury service in Peterborough a few years ago. Waited with all the other Jurors and the Jury manager came in and introduced himself. Little pep talk and then a tour of the Court room. Back into the waiting room and names were called to collect your free dinner voucher. Took mine and gave it straight back to the catering staff. Asked the Jury manager for a word and told him I was leaving, do what you have to do but I am going and walked out. Just could not hack it. They sent me an expenses cheque so I ripped it up, sent another one to where I was working and they put it into my wages. Finn.

    Did Jury service twice, once as a juror and once as the foreman, I had experience, felt it was my civic duty. I let my subscription to CCI lapse but continued to receive the magazine free for the next year. I let my subscription to Classic Ford lapse, resubscribed a year later and got two copies separate bags for that next year.

    My first appearance at 1:11 into the video ---
    Defendant! (I got compliments from staff for looking as guilty as a child molester.)

    Never again. :)

    (At the time, I was a civil trial bailiff, assigned to control the jurors. Especially making sure they could find the courtroom again the second day. :))

    I received a response from Sally at CCI today saying they're looking into the matter but to bear with them due to office restrictions. Presumably due to Covid-19.

    the one thing good, probably the only good thing with CCi .. Sally
    she has been a diamond back through all the years..
    I am totally confused as to how she continues to work there, and yet has to deal with the twat (JH) ..
    I really miss Nigel Powell, he was a proper gentleman, easy to deal with.. then suddenly disappeared ..
    am sure theres dark history in there ..
    JH I wouldn't trust to tie a reef knot!

    I've been with CCI since 1991, never had a problem at all with them.
    Yes you can get things cheaper, but it saves you taking things back when some motor factors give you the wrong parts. So usually I stick with CCI or Martin.

    Still nothing from CCI after 4 months when I questioned how they've been taking my money by direct debit for approx the last 8 years with no magazines sent etc. OK, it's up me to keep track of these things but it doesn't make it right that their system didn't flag the issue.

    I used the new email both times.

    I had an email back from Sally within the last 20 minutes saying my enquiry etc got lost in the whole home working thing back in June. At least things are happening.

    Latest response from CCI:

    "Sorry for the delay in coming back to you, I am having problems finding the payments our end. To assist can you send me copies of the bank statements they appear on, all other transactions can be blanked out".

    Can't help but wonder if it's a delay tactic. How many people keep their statements for 5-8 years? Luckily I think we do. Surely they can tell who is paying them money from THEIR statements? Ditto from their mailing records, who had the magazine sent and when?

    Job for SWMBO to go digging.

    My records show you haven't sent me any money during that time, so you must have paid it to CCI. It's all right here on my statements. You want those?

    Let's start the new year with a moan!

    No small undertaking for me / SWMBO to dig out all our bank statements for the last 8 years (so 8 X 12) then print and redact them all with a marker pen, then copy them (even if I scan and edit on the pc).

    I suspect they know this and it's just a delaying tactic!

    Pretty sure they will know what's been sent and what hasn't their end quite easily.

    Sorry to hear about your issues with them. Bit of a strange but related issue. I logged into CCI for the first time in a while and they have a new site. When i look at my account though i have my primary address as someone else's name and address. Whats more it wont let me remove it. I have emailed them but pretty concerning that someone elses name and address can appear on my account. Makes me wonder if mine is appearing on someone elses.

    I've finally printed all the bank records requested and blanked out anything not relevant to CCI showing the payments made for all these years with no magazines sent.

    Yes it's taken a while for me to do this. They cited "working from home" (on the back of Covid I assume) for not coming back to me sooner and me having to chase. Well right back at them, my Mum DIED from it.

    I'll submit everything later and see what they have to say.

    I'll likely only spend it on strong drink, peanuts and carpet shampoo. The rest I'll probably waste.
