  1. Noting the branding on a cinemas car park, I parked to watch a film. Not noticing any clear notifications to pay, they clearly are there. Naturally this is a Br2ttaN3a managed carpark. I now have two letters. 1. Letter before action from the dubious BW 2. A final 16 day demand before court. I have done the following but have had no response. 1. Recorded delivery letter to parking management company, asking for evidence, print outs, and offence. 2. Recorded delivery letter to BW asking for data restriction. ( they replied saying not applicable ) 3. Lett
  2. Hi Everyone I would like to ask some advice please. I decided to purchase some new specs, I went along to my local optician look at some frames tried some on and agreed to go for a pair of bespoke glasses to get the correct fit, however over the course of the weekend I wasn't happy with my decision and wanted to back out of the deal as I know they would look awful, as this was a bank holiday I spoke with the opticians and said I wanted to cancel the order, he said you cant now the glasses have had the plans drawn up and are now under construction, but this tuesday Morning, and its 9
  3. Hi, have another thread similar but not had many responses so I might have put it in the wrong place, sorry. I've had a quote from a solicitor through my bank which I accepted. The solicitor is asking for more than double. The middle man who supposedly provided the quote through my banks website and allocated the solicitor has said it was a technical error and I was provided an old quote which is now more expensive and I'll either have to pay what the solicitor is asking or find my own solicitor. It's took them 3 weeks of being passed between solicitor. Bank and middle man to get th
  4. Hi All, A friend of mine is having a problem that I'm helping with. He purchased a secondhand Mercedes sports car for £26,000 from what he considered a reputable car dealer (not main dealer)it was delivered Thursday 13th July 2017. They are FCA regulated (Ref No 658267 ) and a representative of (MBI) Limited (Ref No 312143) He paid £10,000 deposit cash and the rest on finance with Close, the first day he noticed problems which were reported the second day, he thought there were gearbox problems and noticed the active intelligent lights were not working. He was asked

  6. I bought a pair of expensive reputable headphones from a high street store that also operate as an online retailer with good reviews. I purchased directly from the physical store as it was easier. In less than a year the headband formed cracks from normal use on the left and right ends. The manner which they appeared flagged a design fault or a material defect. I took pictures of the cracks, eventually one side snapped. The headphones are not usable, so not fit for purpose. I went to the store with the entire box, headphones and purchase receipt and asked for a replacement. The selle
  7. Hi, I'd be so grateful if anyone can advise me in relation to this. I will explain as briefly as possible the relevant details of the situation, and set out a few questions I have. In 2009 we bought our small semi-detached house. We almost were not able to, owing to the fact that we were only just able to find an insurer who would take us on when we declared the existence in the building of a tie bar (as our Buildings Surveyor instructed we must do). We phoned loads of insurers and all put us on hold while speaking to their underwriter, only to come back saying 'Sorry, we don't insu
  8. Hullo all I was a member of an organisation called myphoneclub which provided connections via Orange(EE) on a 30 day contract basis. I ported my two numbers in from Carphone Warehouse over a year ago. On 7th February I received an email from myphoneclub to say they had ceased trading and called them. They advised that someone from orange would be in contact to sort out the phones. On or around 20th February I was contacted by Avenir Telecom a reseller of EE(Orange) who offered to put me on expensive 2 year 4G EE contracts. I refused. No other service from EE was offered to m
  9. Which? is launching a 'Play Fair On Ticket Fees' campaign to end hidden booking fees and charges for concert and theatre tickets. Other complaints included being charged to print tickets at home or collect them from venue box offices, with more than 90% of people objecting to the added cost. It is also calling for any fees to be justified, clearly explained and set at a fair level. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-25398352 You can sign the Which? petition here: http://www.which.co.uk/campaigns/ticket-fees/
  10. I am a customer of brighthouse and I know I should not waste my money but today went to buy a PC and I was disgusted with what they have done they have made all the extras compulsory and the apr thing is now 69.9%. the manager who I know said yeah we have changed and hidden all the stuff in the cash price so you have to pay for it even if not needed. from last week the cash price had gone up by about £400. Sorry tough take it or leave it. This is wrong people need to know they what they have done before you get lured into debt and by making i
  11. I recently bought an expensive guitar from a store online (it has a physical shop as well). The store was selling a limited edition fender guitar £50 cheaper than its competitor. It was wrongly described as having a special set of pickups which was the reason i wanted this guitar. When it arrived it did not have these pickups. (they sold me a cheaper guitar with lower specified pickups) The store has offered me a full refund but it will now cost me another £100 to buy the correct guitar (which has the correct pickups). I also entered into a credit arrangement with the stores credit agency
