  1. That does not explain why there are no signs whatsoever of depression to the box, there would be some kind of creasing ripple or depression on the box. Furthermore the box has not been dropped, the item is very light and the depression on the outer box could not have been caused by dropping unless this was from a significant height. A scratch from scissors is not going to be a clean cut it is likely to be jagged and ripped effect in my view.
  2. This is the box the item was shipped in https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8mNRX7WfRosSVFJSUZHanVWMUU This is the box that was shipped, see the inconsistency https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8mNRX7WfRosSTR4WGphTVZUTFk
  3. Hi all, I sold a very expensive figurine on eBay and sent the item to the seller very well packed first class next day. Two days later the seller requested a full refund stating the item had been damaged in transit. I requested photos of the damage which showed the packing box (shipper) squashed on one corner, the box inside with the figurine inside appeared to have a cut along the corner running up the side of the box. When I received the item back the damage to the box of the figurine appeared inconsistent with the damage shown to the box that housed the figurine. What I mean bear with me on this, The shipping box was squashed on one corner, however the figurines box had no sign of being squashed and looked like it had been cut. The figurine box was wrapped in bubble wrap at least 5 or 6 times and I am guessing when the buyer tried to remove the bubble wrap say with scissors he has cut the box. Do I have any right to claim the buyer has damaged the item and will eBay see the obvious inconsistency? I have the photos he originally sent as do eBay!
  4. Hi all, Some years ago around 2005 I had two separate debts with CSA one for my son and one for my daughter both owed to the state not the mothers. After a long period of illness I have managed to get myself back on track and my finances are now pretty much resolved. Back in 2005 my daughter and her mother moved abroad to a non e.u country, I then received a letter showing my daughters account as 0.00 on the statement and they then stopped taking money from my benefit for this account. After 6 weeks I realised that my daughter was not on holiday and that they had in fact moved abroad, at this point I thought that because she had moved to another country they were no longer chasing for this debt. In their letter they are saying they did this because they were unable to contact me, but they were sending me letters and taking money from my benefit and still taking money for my sons account. My sons debt continued as normal and I paid this off just a few months ago, however the CSA have sent a letter saying I must now pay £1509, stating I received a letter telling me this debt was simply suspended and that I had to pay it because I was under the CSA rules after 2001(not sure what this meant), I'm pretty sure I was under rules prior to 2001 because both my children were born before 2001 (99. 95). Everything around that time is pretty foggy as I was unwell but I know for sure I never received a letter explaining why the statement showed £0 and it was at the same time as my daughter leaving for another country. What can I do, I'm sure they are trying it on.
  5. Hi All, I recently completed a degree and prior to completion managed to get a job with a large organisation that will remain un-named. I was due to start a taster day 3 months later prior to a enhanced disclosure being completed when I was struck down with a chest infection. A few days later I received a phone call from the said organisations manager stating they would no longer be pursuing my application. The reason given was they felt that there were stronger candidates citing references as a reason for this despite them having these references for as much as 1 month prior to this. In addition I had since turned down another job for which I had a contract ready to sign to take this job in the organisation I longed to work for. So I shook it off and continued to search for another job. I managed to get an interview after much grovelling with the company that originally offered me a contract and was offered a job and as it happens applied for another job with the said organisation in another department. I was offered a job once again by the organisation that turned me down and decided that this time I would wait till I got a contract to sign before making a decision which job I would take. I can do this because by the time my enhanced disclosure and clearance to work arrives it will be January so I still have the option to choose either job. The problem is since being successful in the interview and being offered the job on November 10th I have heard nothing, I have sent an email to human resources on the 19th asking about the outcome and I have called twice before being redirected to the manager of the department who I emailed on Monday but I have still heard nothing. I know my enhanced disclosure is clean as I have one from the other company who have offered me a contract, and I know my references are good because I contacted them first to ask permission and they all stated that they would be giving my a glowing reference. I am certain this relates to them getting a reference from someone that I did not give permmission for them to obtain, this person would not have been fair I believe and although it would not be a bad reference they may cite weaknesses that might stop me from getting the position, either this or it is someone I have worked with before who took as dislike to me or another student who may also not have liked me. These are just theories to be honest because except for one person who I would never have given permission o gain a reference I cannot think who would cause the organisation to completly blank me out. Nor do I expect this from such a profession let alone the organisation. Is there anything I can do about this? Can they just be ignorant after offering me a job twice? Can I ask for a subject access request in order to rule out references as a cause?
  6. Writing letter now, Thanks
  7. I bought a couple of football shirts from Amazon, they were pretty cheap at £14.99 but I thought it must be right its Amazon right! I ordered and received a order confirmation stating the item was not in stock but would be dispatched as soon as they had more stock. I got an email a few days later stating that an error had been made with the pricing and that the items ordered would be cancelled, they went on to say as a gesture they would honour the price of one item and cancel the other. So I thought well at least I get one, since I bought these shirts for my boys I thought I'll go into town and pick one up from another reputable store so my boys are not fighting over who gets the shirt, this cost me £44. Yesterday I got an email saying and I quote "Our supplier has informed us that this item is no longer available. This item has now been cancelled from your order ". So now I am £44 down and I'm going to have to pay a further £44 to get the shirt for my other son. Is there anything I can do here, the item was a third away kit could I not request they supply a another shirt from the same team??
  8. Idon't knowhow much it should be but £600 cannot be right I never borrowed that much.
  9. This is the DWP second letter.
  10. Hi all, I received a letter out of the blue requesting repayment of a social fund loan I thought had been paid off. The debt must date back to before 2003 and it was being taken from my benefit at the time I was ill. I am currently at University and have no income other than a bursary which pays off my bus fares and gives me a small income to use for food whilst on placement. That said my partner is working and we have joint claim for tax credits which I am worried they will try take money from. My partner is refusing to pay towards the debt and I have very little money to offer even though I don't believe the debt is as large as they say it is. What can I do.
  11. What approach would you take, I originally wanted to supply a definition of fit for purpose then raise the point of the charging cradle stating it was not fit for purpose and providing the relevant legislation. Is the sales of goods act more relevant? P.S does that mean you the same problem
  12. Hi all, About 3 weeks ago I pre ordered purchased a brand new Samsung Gear Live watch from Google Play Store. Whilst waiting for the watch to arrive I noticed some of the people that had received the pre release watch at the Google I/0 conference had reported the charging cradle that snaps onto the back of the watch was damaging the plastic on the back of the watch meaning they were no longer able to charge the watch. With this in mind I have tried to be very careful with the watch removing the cradle from the rear of the watch with care. Unfortunately however the watch has succumb to this fault and the charging cradle has broken the plastic on the rear of the watch meaning I am unable to charge the watch. Below is an example of the problem which is well known. http://www.sammobile.com/2014/07/07/samsung-gear-live-charging-mechanism-reportedly-getting-damaged-easily/ I contacted Google play and they have offered me a new replacement watch, after some persuasion, however, I am far from confident that this will not happen again, I asked Google that I would happy to accept a new watch if they could offer a different way of charging that did not require snapping cradle on to the back of e device risking it breaking again. I have requested a full refund, my argument is the charging cradle is not fit for purpose as it breaks the device. Do I have a case in consumer law here?
  13. The car was sold to a garage and taken in part exchange for another car, I was then summons to court shortly after for SORN cause there was no tax on the car, I told them I no longer owned the car and heard nothing after that then this. The garage owner never gave me the part of the log book I needed to send off so it is partly my fault, however, DVLA are saying I was not the registered keeper at that time and they are saying they would not have told the baliffs I was, so I am confused as to how this happening. Unfortunatley I do not have any of the transactional info for the car we bought or part ex'ed
  14. We sold a car to a garage back 2010, a parking fine was issued for the car in 2012, I moved out of my partners address in 2013 and letters which my ex did not open were being sent there. Just last week Baliffs (Marstons) on behalf of Leeds city council came to my ex partners property and took her car which unfortunately is still registered in my name. I have called DVLA who have confirmed to me that the previous car in question was not registered to me at the time the car received a parking fine. How could this have happened? What can I do, the Baliffs are refusing to return the car despite this and are saying we have 7 days f which we are in the 6th. Any help much appreciated
