  1. Hello, Well, I didn’t think I’d be looking at this thread again after all this time! I have not heard anything from anyone with regard to this dispute until today! This is the first correspondence in over 7.5 years. The letter has come from PRA group. It is a statement of account with the original amount as the outstanding amount. I am wondering if I need to do anything about this, ignore it or take some form of legal action. Image of letter attached below.
  2. Thank you for the info. provided above. I have a good friend in Romania (who is also Romanian) who has filed for compensation for herself and husband from Tarom before. I'll ask her if she has any info. too. I'll report on what happens as it may happen to other people in the future. Tarom, have agreed to pay, but just not into one bank account. Not that they told me this until a lot of chasing.
  3. I've just looked through their T&C's and found that everything is operated under Swedish Law.
  4. Good afternoon, I am wondering if somebody can point me in the right direct. Last summer myself, my wife and our son (13 at the time) flew to Romania with Tarom (Heathrow to Bucharest). Our flight landed almost 6 hours late. On our return, I filed a claim for compensation for the three of us at 400 Euro’s per person. After 3 months, Tarom eventually replied to me with an apology and an offer of 450 Euro’s per person in vouchers. I refused this and insisted upon a cash alternative via bank transfer under Regulation EU261. Tarom agreed to compensate 400 Euro’s per person and a
  5. That's correct, the machine is on the other road and the arrows on the signage that I mention all point toward that machine and away from the correct signage. Even looking back at the car, the angle, distance and general amount of vehicles, trees, hedges, houses etc make the sign blend into the background clutter. I know after it was pointed out that I had parked on the wrong side of the road and I freely admit that. But as said the signs I saw all indicated pay and display. The sign saying not to park here is a sneaky ways back.
  6. I only work in London every now and then and hadn't realised that parking signage is for one side only. I haven't seen it before in other locations, so was news to me (no excuse I know). The warden who gave me the ticket (who was friendly and helpful) did hint that they do get quite a few people who park in the last two or three spaces of that road as people see the sign opposite first and then the other sign I over the road. Sneaky positioning I think...
  7. Thanks for the reply, Once the signs were pointed out, it became clear. On the first street view link below I parked on the right-hand-side at the very end of the bay (behind the Volvo that is parked there). I drove in from the opposite end of the road and saw the free space at the end. As you can see from street view, there is a sign on the opposite side of the road (2nd link) which states ‘permit holders or pay at machine’. I saw this sign and another one near the machine stating the same thing. I did not see the sign on the side I parked as i
  8. Hello everybody, I am after some advice with regards to appealing a Penalty Charge Notice. I was doing some work for a client at one of their rental properties in Battersea (Cupar Road). I turned into Cupar Road from Battersea Park Road and drove to the end where I saw a parking space on the left (and coincidently right by the house I was working on). As I got out of the car I saw the sign saying “Permit Holders or Pay at machine”. Underneath there was an arrow directing you to the nearest ticket machine. In that direction, was another sign stating the
  9. Completion of the job within the 3 days was made impossible by no prior packing to our arrival and the sheer unorganised chaos at both ends. Thing is, I get a text from her husband the following monday asking if I can do another load and how much will it cost. I reply that I can't due to being booked, but could pass on details to someone that could help. So I don't think it is a case of job completion. It's more a case of looking for someone to blame for their own shortcomings.
  10. Andydd. I got nothing back from them and they verbally agreed on at least two separate occasions. A few years ago I took someone through the small claims for not paying. Agreed verbally and I sent an email with all costs etc. The chap said he never got the email, but the judge said that didn't matter as he agreed I do the work via telephone. He should have chased up for a note about t&c's. I think this maybe the same case here. Although, it's not the cost so much that has baked her biscuit, it's the fact I couldn't help after the 3 days. As said in my opening statement, if everything was p
  11. Hi, thanks for the reply. In question to a contract. I sent her an email breaking down the costs of the quote and overtime costs beyond the 8 hours per day. I also stated that all boxes needed to be packed, labelled, marked as fragile etc. She stated to me several times she was going to pack with a lady that does her cleaning, babysitting etc. She even asked me where she can buy boxes, but obviously £200 for more than enough boxes was a too much. I backed the email up with a phone call and said that I have sent an email with everything in writting. She seemed a bit hacked off that I had put
  12. PS - Sorry for the typo's my spacebar is on the way out!
  13. Hello All, I have a little predicament at the moment. I did a house move for a friend a few weeksago with a couple of guys I use on a sub-contract basis. Long and short of it is they are refusing topay me because of the problems they had thereafter. The points are: · My quoted price for the move was £1280 over 3days (Saturday to Monday) with 3 men working (including myself). The old house is a large detached 4 bedroomhouse with a large out building. Bothbuildings are crammed with stuff. She isa chronic hoarder and never throws anything away. There are my friends andtheir
  14. Hi all, I hired a van from a local company a few weeks ago. We both inspected the vehicle, but just a 30second walk around. The guy didn’t evenhave a pen and marked out the form (with the cc) with a key! When the van was returned (out of hours), Ipopped the keys through the letterbox as per their instructions. The next day I went away to visit mygirlfriends grandparents who live in very rural Romania. There is no phone reception or internetconnection. The nearest town is a good30 – 45 minute drive away. Anyhow, mostpeople know I am away and just leave messages on my phone knowing I
  15. Finally this has been resolved. Carparts4less collected the item via a Eurocarparts driver. Got the full refund today. I wrote a very harsh letter pointing out the various legal terms for they are responsible and pointed out the floors in their own T&C's. Not impressed with their service in any way and also the banks conduct in this issue. Many thanks to all your input and helping out with various legal points
  16. I'll ask Halifax for them. The first guy told me that if the item that turned up was incorrect, then I could claim and then after emailed the David Nicholas, I get told that I could only claim if the item did not turn up. I was also told that the CAB, Trading Standards etc know that you can only claim chargeback if an item does not arrive. Does it make much difference if the card is a Visa Debit? I have also written a letter to CarParts4Less pointing out their T&C's and that they state I have to pay if "I cancel the contract" and what they need to do if the item is mis-represented
  17. Marvellous! Just heard back from my card issuer (Halifax) and they say there is nothing they can do. Chargeback only works if I had not received the goods. They argue, that I have received goods that I ordered and paid for, therefore, CarParts4Less have kept their end of the contract! CarParts4Less even refuse to speak to me now. I fear if I send the clutch back, they will come up with more excuses and I will never see my money again.
  18. Actually just had a look on the box. CarParts4Less add their own sticker. Under the description on the sticker it states "clutch kit for VW/SEAT AGZ". So I'm covered in regard to them making the mistake and being unaware that this clutch will not fit a SEAT.
  19. Yup, got a screenshot of their website with my reg number and the parts offered to fit the vehicle.
  20. Now CarParts4Less refuse to talk to me. No replies to emails or letters. I have tried calling them and they put the phone down as soon as they bring up the order number! I have sent an email to David Nicholas of Halifax to request a chargeback as I have been misled by CarParts4Less as to the usage of the clutch. So I will wait and see what response I get from him.
  21. I've stated this to them about the T&C's and their clause only applies if I cancel the contract. I also sent them that link you (rebel11) gave me to them and pointed out that it is down to them to pay for postage. I await their reply to that. I did think about asking them what they would do if I ordered a clutch and they sent me a set of brake disc's. Would I be liable for the return postage then? I bet it is because I have ordered a clutch from their site and the clutch I ordered has arrived. But as we know, is not fit for purpose that it is advertised for.
  22. Just had a look at their tT&C's. They have sent me 5.3.2 as their compnay policy. But if you read 5.3 onwards, 5.3.2 only applies if I cancel the contract! I haven't cancelled the contract. 5.3 To cancel a Contract, you must: 5.3.1 inform us in writing; 5.3.2 return the Goods to us, in the same condition in which you received them with the original packaging and the product documentation, and at your own cost and risk. The Goods must not have been used and, where applicable, must not have been removed from the sealed clear packaging. This includes electrical items, whic
  23. The card is a visa debit from halifax. I have spoken to the CAB and they have said I am in the right as they have supplied me with the incorrect information. They advise to apply for a copy of their complaints procedure & get the name and address of their MD. I know it's only £25 - £30, but it's he principal of it all and them being so uncooperative is making me more determined to fight it out. Not just for me but all consumers who get dumped on by idiotic companies.
  24. Right, just spoken to my card issuer and they claim I can't make a claim. They say because the part number they advertised and the part they sent are the same, they are saying I have got what I ordered. I pointed out that they state it will fit my car and it doesn't, so it's not fit for purpose. They disagree and say I got what I ordered I.e. The part numbers match! Any ideas on what to do next?
