This company masquerades as though a pseudo-governmental organisation, but aren't. They lie to extort a fee to provide a worse service to those seeking to obtain a CSCS card, by lying and telling them that this is the cheapest that it can be done. They then say that the books and CDs cost 3 times as much as they do. On top they provide wrong info., even including booking tests in venues which are very much further away than actually necessary. They threaten to penalize those who complain, with fines.

Dear Liban,

Thank you for accepting receipt of this email from an email which you "don't check" (more lies), and consenting to with prejudice standards of discourse. Either you make the payment by the end of the day tomorrow, or CC proceedings are going to be happening on Thursday, in the morning.

You clearly don't know what you're doing, as you have already had the opportunity to state your terms of business, prior to taking the money. What you have written, is deceptive (the tort of deceit), in that you make untrue, and illegal representations; but none the less, you would still have no option to dictate a fee schedule, for the stated reason. It is you who have created the problem, based on a wrong which you have wilfully orchestrated, which lead to the harm, with consequential unjust enrichment, which is why you can't expect me or anyone else, to suffer further as a result. Clearly to charge someone for you to explain yourself is preposterous, even if the other reasons weren’t sufficient to negate such an idea, so you make a fool of yourself.

I didn't get the whole of first part, but it clearly demonstrates that you don't know what you're doing, so maybe to show your cards was unwise, and you shouldn’t have said anything. You see, hypothetically speaking, we are either in contract, and you are in breach, or, we aren’t in contract, as a contract entered into following fraud is void in ab initio, but I doubt you were aware of your statements supporting that (if that were so, it would appear that you are trying to charge based on a boast of criminality).

Now that it has been established that you do actually receive these emails, I hereby make a Subject Access Request (SAR), in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, for the two of only tow phone calls (one inbound, and one outbound), with their illegal (including Fraud by Misrepresentation, Fraud Act 2006).

I demand the phone call records of all of the calls, including any notes on these, and any internal or external communicaitons relating to the money or the apparent service, or its subject matter. You have 28 days to comply, but the court action needs to dally no longer, as you have made your steadfast unreasonableness clear, and ignorance only knows the stick. This in no way effects the peripheral activities, which are morally unavoidable, or, the costs which you I am afraid shall bear. Failure to agree to this demand shall spark a complaint to the Data Commissioner, which shall also be chargeable. This has taken an hour to write, if we take into account, checking, emailing, and the trip to the Post Office, so the Fee Schedule stands at £100.

Do yourself a favour, and pay that money back immediately. This does not affect the demand for the phone calls as per the SAR.

Dear Sirs,
WITH PREJUDICE
CONFIRM RECEIPT BY RETURN

I herby notify you of my instruction to cancel the card payment which was made yesterday, on behalf of Alex Bota, from my card. Please confirm your having done this as soon as possible. Should you not respond accordingly in conformation, by this time tomorrow, with verification of transfer of funds, I shall be forced to contact my:
1. bank, to cancel the payment, and report a fraudulent transaction;
2. Trading Standards as you are masquerading as the government, and are making illegal representations, regarding there being no recourse to cancel transactions, despite this being at odds with the Distance Selling Regulations;
3. the Police (re. Obtaining a Money Transfer by Deception); and,
4. yourselves, to obtain a Subject Access Request in line with the Data Protection Act, to obtain the calls, which detail the catalogue of abuses. Should you decide that you “may” have not recorded any of these, then the means by which this selection is determined shall be sought, and shown as a further instrument of fraud.
All of which will take time, which shall be chargeable, at my rate, which I hereby state as £100 per hour. This misappropriated transfer, as well as miscellaneous associated costs, shall be pursued through the small claims court, on the same basis, and all of that which is found shall be published widely. I anticipate the costs associated with this, are likely to run into a substantial sum; probably upwards of £1,000, especially should a court appearance be necessary, with the necessary research, etc..
Thank you in advance of your cooperation,

Tom Cahill
