  1. @00765 what was the outcome? I have received a similar letter from Europcar with regards to a vehicle we recently had as a courtesy car while our car was being repaired
  2. Hi, This is an update to my original post. I was wondering if anyone could help advise me. I am not sure what to do. I invested £5k in may 2015. Since Trustbuddy went bankrupt I have only received one payment from the administrators of £737.94 in November 2016. I think this is what the administrators are calling 'payout 1'. Now I have received the following email from the administrators: "Your personal profile: Total balance SEK 11191,17287 Outstanding loan SEK 64900,08333 Estimate amount payout 1 6801,09 Procentual part of balance 0,017522 % Procentual
  3. Thanks for the helpful comments. I have decided to grant power of attorney to the Norway debt collection group.
  4. http://www.crowdfundinsider.com/2016/01/80598-trustbuddy-bankruptcy-lenders-to-pay-25-on-recovered-claims/ I am a lender with TB. My money is invested in Finland. I have received several letters from the Swedish administrators. The latest appears to offer an agreement to buy the loans from a debt collection agency. I can't understand most of what they are saying because some of the docs are in Norwegian. I have tried writing to the administrators, but have not received any response to date. Anyone else in a similar position? Not sure what my options are....
  5. My mistake. Thx for pointing that out. Our case seems the same as this successful appeal (which you helped with): http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?335480-Car-towed-from-unclear-suspended-bay-with-sign-not-visible&highlight=suspended+bay+towed Are there reasons we don't have a valid case on the same grounds?
  6. Thanks a lot for your advice. Some clarifications: According to http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1992/1215/schedule/made Doesn't this mean that they should have put a sign in the direction my GF walked away too? i.e. away from the sign which was several car lengths away. Yes, it does. This forum appears to shrink pics. I put the full size pics on Google Drive (see links in my original post). I presume it doesn't make any difference, but as you can see there is actually two signs: On one sign the suspension runs from 20th May to 16th June, but on the other it runs from 27th
  7. Hi TGLS, Congratulations on your victory. I was wondering if you would mind taking a quick look at my post as we are fighting what looks like a very similar case: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?426853-Car-Towed-Suspended-Bay-Sign-Unclear&p=4555626#post4555626 Any advice would be greatly appreciated. e.g. would you mind sharing your appeal letter? Thx.
  8. I can't remember for sure. I will have to go back to see, but in the meantime, on streetview, it looks like one single bay i.e. there is just a single dashed line around several parking spaces and no dashed lines separating individual spaces. See here: http://www.instantstreetview.com/2o9dquz3et6t4z41bznvz2u. You can see no.s 97 and 99 here. Don't we have grounds for appeal on any of the other points I raised? e.g. no sign in the direction she left the car on foot? I have read in other posts that they are meant to put a sign on both sides of the suspended bay, so that it is not missed.
  9. I am writing on behalf of my girlfriend who got her car towed last saturday morning 7th June 2014. They told us it was parked in a suspended bay, but after reading several posts on this forum, it seems we may have valid reasons to appeal. We would be very grateful for anyone more knowledgeable about the law on this to advise us on our appeal before we submit it. She thought her car had been stolen and it caused a great deal of distress. Plus it was a huge inconvenience to us as we were due to go away for the weekend in the car. The car was parked on St. Jo
  10. Recieved a letter confirming they are dropping the case. It doesn't go into any more detail as to why though. See attached scan. Thanks everyone for all your help with this.
  11. True. There is nothing on the web site. I will let you know if I get anything in writing. However, I did only challenge on the grounds of incorrect contravention (see above):
  12. I have not heard anything from Southward since I submitted my challenge on 18th Feb. I just checked the status of the PCN on the southwark website and it says 'case closed'. I am presuming this means they have dropped it?! If so, I think I've been lucky, but there again Southwark were careless. Many thanks to everyone for your advice. This is a great forum and I've certainly learned a lot from you.
  13. Thanks SarEl. A good point. I am considering the risk of not being able to find another job. The truth is I have been considering leaving for quite a long time.
  14. My company is embarking on a programme of redundancy in the UK. With the aim of cost cutting by off-shoring roles. We are currently coming to the end of the collective consultation phase and expect that individuals will be put at risk very soon. The company have said that they may put some people on an 'extended' at risk period. They have not stated clearly how long this could be, but they guess up to about 6 months and it will be agreed between the individual and the manager. I think the idea is that they want some individuals to stay to complete important work / handover etc. I think they wa
  15. My company is embarking on a program of redundancies as a cost saving measure. We are currently coming to the end of 'collective consultation'. We asked the question "Is there a voluntary redundancy programme?" the answer was that there is no official program, but you can put yourself forward and the company would consider it. The cuts are drastic (about 70%). Some people would prefer to be made redundant. I am considering putting myself forward but I am not really sure what the risks are? Where does that leave me afterwards, if I am declined? i.e. once I 'show my cards' as it were? Colle
