Almost a year ago i purchased a Firebelly2 solid fuel stove and pipework online from Easyfireplace.co.uk. When I contacted a fitter to fit the stove (a director at the National Association of Chimney Engineers) I was informed that the data plate and supplied paperwork were INSUFFICIENT to allow a fitter to fit the fire without exposing themselves to a legal risk and me and my family to a safety risk.

Although not a HETAS approved stove, it is advertised as compliant and tested and carries a CE mark. All that i need is a valid Declaration of Performance to prove that the stove has in fact been tested and is safe.

Following a long number of email exchanges with the seller (easy fireplace) and manufacturer (firebelly) they flatly REFUSE to provide proof that the stove has been safety tested and therefore has the right to carry the CE mark.

I am now stuck between supplier, manufacturer and installer with a stove in my living room i cannot fit!

I know i can find someone to fit it and ‘ask no questions’ but as i asked of firebelly, am i expected to entrust the lives of my children to this??

Please help me.

Kind Regards
Alister

Can you please help me.
I purchased a car on the internet on 6th March 2012 for 8,400 pounds after checking with Companys house that this was a legitimate company.
I made a bank payment to the so called company and later that same day had a call off the company to ask me to stop the payment as I had been given the wrong account details. I explained that because it was a bank payment and I couldn’t stop the payment and was told by the advisor that that was ok.

The car did not arrive and I called the police to advise them after making various phone calls to companys house and the address for the privatecarsalesltd company only to find out that a company with a similar name was registered at the address under and accountancy firm with companys house.

To cut a long story short, since the incident two years ago. I have had no contact off the police!!!! I have called them numerous times in the last two weeks trying to find out what has happened and I keep on getting told the officer in charge will contact me and that they cant give out any details!!!!!

Please help as £8,400 is a lot of money for me to lose

The car did not arrive so I reported it to the police

HELLO Dominic,
re: barclays bank.
I had 13 WOOLWICH accounts.
unfortunately this good B/S was taken over by the thieves.
I fled britland 3 years ago.
I progressed a land purchase there.
I needed a little more money so I sold my light airfield in Kent for a rapid transaction.
I discussed with barclays my need to transfer my

Some of My money to my Thai SCB account to complete my land purchase as the deal was for rapid completion as the vendor needed the money for ICU hospital surgery.
barclays had changed my account status to Deposit Only status.
barclays sent me a mail saying they understood the urgency.
barclays then refused to let me have any of my money.
Yes I have complained.
barclays Senior Serious complaints manager said he would sort it out but he left for a couple of weeks.
I was told to send him paper copies of my passport &ID etc.
I mailed 4 seperate packages inc tracked & recorded & express.
3 days around the world & a week to get up a few barclays floor levels!
A deputy manager sent my mails Snail mail to Leicester.
Its a very long terible story but it has taken me over 4 months to get my money from barclays despite my sending mails almost every day to them.
barclays insisted that if I
I wanted any of my money back then I would have to travel around the world to get it.
I even got a uk solicitor to produce power of Atourney for my own mother who banks in the same branch & for 65 years but she was also refusef access to my acct.
The only way that I could get my money was to mail with unsavoury foresight and barclays paniced and closed my account.
so: I will get my money soon.
barclays have cost millions and made existance hell for many people.
barclays staff tell of their bosses not understanding simple banking.
I instructed for my money to be transfered 4 months ago and
I warned them that the exchange rate would fall severely against my favour.
I am of course correct and barclays have cost me over ten thousand pounds in exchange rate depretiation alone.
I was polight enough and aware enough to alert barclays that their lazyness, incompetence, criminal practices and assaults would cost them dearly.
I warned barclays that they were paying for my travel costs and outgoings as associated.
The only competence barclays shows is lying and gross misuse of customers monies and threatening, assaults and murder.
Yes, a befrender of my predicament was murdered the following day.

barclays think that not answering mails is the solution.
I wish to take them to the high court.
Thank you,
from Nigel.

My husband and I had annual travel insurance with Insure and Go and had booked 3holidays 2 of which were fully paid for when my husband was admitted to hospital for 5days with fluid on the lungs due to pnuemonia 3days after his release he was readmitted to hospital with complications of the pnuemonia.During this stay in hospital our insurance was due to expire so when renewing the policy i explained the current stituation as I knew it.When my husband was in hospital an operation was performed and then he was discharged About 10 days later he was readmitted by ambulance and it was a day or two later that we were told that my husband had a form of lung cancer.We submitted our claims for refunds of our monies paid but Insure and Go have done nothing but delay and provocate over the most petty detail and i am now coming to my wits end and I truly believe this is what they want So any help would be gratefully recieved

Dear Dominic

You will see from my email that I am an electrical contractor, but this has nothing to do with this message to you. This message concerns almost every person in this country, as I have information that will benefit every person, child and the elderly in this country if the information is brought to light.

I also have information on another very important subject, that affects many good people and children of our nation, but I would like to talk to you in person Dominic and not in front of camera’s due to it’s very high importance. The people of our country need you Dominic, and we are having problems being heard at this time.

I am just a normal citizen of our country Dominic and people are not taking notice, but the people and children of our country need someone like you to bring my information to light, for the benefit of families, children and the elderly. When you know my information Dominic, I know it will spark you into doing what you do best, fighting for the people and children of our country.

All I ask Dominic is one phone call from you and you only, if you do not wish to undertake an investigation into my information that is your choice, but I know it will make you want to do something about the information I give you.

May I congratulate you and your team on your passed actions Dominic, you are much needed and unlike some institutions you are unbiased and say it as it is, which is what is needed in this case. You can find my contact number which ends in 041 by checking my email address, and my company name, but I will only talk to you at this stage. I am sorry about that Dominic but due to the information I have to remain out of the limelight.

Happy new year to you and your team Dominic

Best wishes Tony

Hi Dom, my friend has had to live with a leaking illegal toilet above her bedroom for the past 3 and a half years. The toilet was leaking in September and December 2013. The toilet was finally taken out in February this year 2016. She is waiting for her room to be redecorated and ruined clothes to be replaced (she was told to through them away because of health and safety issues). She has been told that this is in hand but nothing has been done to date. She lives in an over 55’s block and is much older than that. She is wondering if this issue will be rectified before she dies. If you could please look into this it would be great
