  1. Hi and welcome to CAG. I assume the retailer paid for Hermes to deliver to you. If so, your complaint is with the retailer, not Hermes. The retailer is the customer of Hermes, not you If it was you that arranged the delivery and paid Hermes direct then you are the customer and you can continue to claim
  2. Hi and a welcome from me. I have an interest in Hermes (and Parcels2Go) and it is my opinion that they do not want their terms and conditions tested in court as almost everything they convey is prohibited for them to carry which (again in my opinion) is not lawful. Nearly case I have followed so far has been settled but it needs a full court case to test those terms and conditions. As your case is quite a costly one, Hermes may decide that it is worth defending so you do need to be aware of that. Bankfodder is the 'go to' guy in these cases and I am glad to see he is helping.
  3. Hi and welcome to CAG. Don't even stress over this. The time to act has gone. They have no proof you took anything and if they wanted to trawl through hours of footage, that would not be cost effective. If they did look through the footage, they don't know who you are and if stopped at any time in the future, refuse to go with them and walk out of the store. If they were foolish to drag you back, you would have a claim against them for assault
  4. Just my opinion. They cannot now rely on PoFA as the original demand wasn't made using PoFA. Chopping and changing isn't allowed. wait until the Letter Before Action to arrive before going further.
  5. "Notice of intention to commence legal proceedings" Means absolutely nothing! "Despite our offer of a reduced payment of £160" Erm! £160 isn't a reduced payment. Totally laughable letter. I echo Dx's post. I suspect the next letter will be from either Gladstones or BW Legal with the title "Letter Before Claim". It is at this time that you can act. Before then, sit on your hands.
  6. Just one other thought. They have given you a POPLA code. You could use it and appeal to them. Stating that the NTK did not arrive within 14 days should be a slam dunk and chances are that MET won't even contest it. They cannot prove they did issue in time as you have the proof they didn't.
  7. Thanks. That is what I thought. Shame you appealed. The Notice to Keeper is well out of time and MET would be very stupid to take this further.
  8. I apologise if I seem to be a bit dim with this case. You are saying the first letter you received was on 19th of this month but you say you appealed and it was refused. Did your car have a ticket attached to it? If so, is that when you appealed?
  9. Hi and welcome to CAG. First off, I am assuming that Superdrug are part of a shop/storewatch scheme so yes he would be able to pass your details onto others stores within the same scheme BUT, he cannot state that you are banned from other stores. Each store will have different procedures to dealing with shoplifters. You would normally be asked to leave if they chose to. All stores are private and customers are there by invitation only and that invitation can be withdrawn for any or no reason at all. If memory serves me right, Superdrug use Retail Loss prevention (RLP) to collect these "fines!" It is no such thing. It is a charge levied by RLP to you but it has no legal nor lawful power over you. You do not pay it. They have no right to it. Yes they can chase and make statements about court which they don't do. The can't. Only Superdrug can but they don't bother as it would cost them far more than they would ever get back. The bad stuff. RLP will write to you directly but their letters are franked (no stamp) with their name on it. Nasty but I have checked and they can get away with it. If you don't respond, it has been noted that RLP wrote to the Parent/Guardian. Whether they still do this, I don't know. With this in mind, it would benefit you if you 'fessed up' to your parents but only if you live in a stable family environment. Once that is done, you can direct them to this forum and show them your (and other) threads to show just how powerless RLP are. Letters could take two to three weeks to arrive. The letters generalise matters rather than going into fine detail due to RLP using standard template letters. They don't calculate how much they want. They just make up a number and include that in the letter. They also state that each event costs the retailer £300-£500 which is a load of bovine excement. They include this in order to make you think you owe them X amount. You stole. The store got the goods back. No loss. Security staff are paid whether or not they catch a shoplifter. I really do encourage you to confide in your mum at the very least because you are not obliged to pay this spurious charge-ever. Nobody can take court action against you mainly because you are under 18 and for the reasons above. When you get a letter (IF) can you cover up all your details and post them here. I haven't had a good laugh for ages. Also, read this https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?448994-RLP-FAQ-s-What-do-they-mean-Reviewed-September-2015&p=4762870&viewfull=1#post4762870 and read around the forum as well
  10. As UKPC have not followed the guidelines set by the BPA in that it's members should use PoFA when chasing tickets, there can be no keeper liability. Only the driver can be chased and you are under no obligation to name them. Anybody with their own insurance can drive your car with your permission although under third party rules only. I would wait until the Notice to Keeper arrives and see what they say. If they then start relying on PoFA, they would be on a sticky wicket (IMO) as the shouldn't be able to issue tickets under one law then chase under another. The NtK should arrive (if PoFA is used) between 29 and 56 days after the issuance of the ticket. If it arrives too early or too late then they are stuffed.
  11. I don't quite follow. If the first letter you received is the appeal refusal, what was there sent to you to know that a contravention had taken place?
  12. Hi So, the ANPR capture was 19/12/18 and you get the letter 16/02/19! They are out of time for any action to be taken. With ANPR capture, they must contact the keeper within 14 days so I would just ignore them. EDIT: Just realised you have already appealed. What was the date of the first letter, not the one above?
  13. Hi Can you complete this to the best of your knowledge https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?462118-Have-you-received-a-Parking-Ticket&p=4883055&viewfull=1#post4883055
  14. Hi and welcome to CAG. I have looked on Googlespy (Street View) and there is one sign at the entrance to the estate but that is on Samas Way and is after the entrance to Alcock Crescent so by assumption, this sign suggests one area (Samas Way) is the permit holder part only. Travelling around the site, I spotted 11 other signs (possibly more than I could see) which had individual terms on them however, the main condition is "No unauthorised parking" . This is an absolute term so you cannot breach a term that forbids parking. This is trespass only and only the landowner can take action, not UKPC. I can't understand why UKPC have not mentioned PoFA. Can you post up the ticket, suitably redacted of all identifiable information where we can see what is what.
  15. What I am about to say, you won't like at all. Driving without insurance has wider implications than just using it sparingly. Your actions cause others to pay higher premiums. If you can't afford insurance/tax then you can't afford a car. If you had been in a crash whether or not your fault, you would have caused wider problems for yourself mainly that your car should never have been there in the first place. No car= no crash! Also, having no insurance would mean no tax either. Did the car at least have a valid MOT? As for 'very mild speeding'. There is no such thing. You were caught speeding. Speed limits are there for a reason even if they are not completely obvious. I would advise that you stop trying to minimise your actions; you have no excuse. Take whatever is given in fines and/or ban. Learn from your poor choices and don't do it again.
