  3. I purchased 2x hiking sticks from Sports Direct 2 months ago. Whilst using them i realised one was longer than the other. Upon further investigation i realised one of mine was missing a piece to make it complete. Few days ago took it back instore asking for a replacement of the same product but was told that SportsDirect only offer 1 month warranty on all their products, even if they are faulty. They basically refused all service on the matter and was told something identical at a different store. Are they correct in only offering 1 month? As i thought warranties were supposed to be
  4. I bought a x-hose from a garden show and it was faulty, I managed to track the traders down ( Swissclub ) all I got was a contact who I think was the manager and they sent a replacement. This failed after 2 uses I called him again, no problem he said to call with my bank details and he would refund my money. I then could not contact him as he wasn't answering my calls even if I used a different phone. I then managed to get an address and e mail I contacted them and was told to send the hoses back, something which the manager never mentioned, but
  5. Hi all, I recently had a very bad experience with a purchase I did on a website called icoinela.com. Long story short, I was looking to buy an iPhone 7 plus on Gumtree, where I was contacted by a seller who informed me about a website with good discounts on Apple products, and he seemed kind enough at the time to provide me with a 40% discount code that was expiring a few days after. After some research I did online about icoinela, I found several articles saying that people have used it and that it is legitimate. One of them was BBC (well, not the official site, but a spoof site tha
  6. I have a Very account and my wife's uncle asked me if he could purchase a £700 fridge freezer which he then sold without my knowledge for £250. When I found out I wasnt best happy and he told me it was none of my business so long as I got paid it would be OK and then asked me if he could order another £1000 worth of stuff which I point blank refused. Since then he has not been making monthly payments he agreed and making an excuse everytime but now it is coming upto the end of the 12 months interest free credit period so I've told him it needs to be paid or I will be place
  7. I am sad to say I have been duped into giving my bank details to a company for postage and packing for free trial products. My bank is helping me to deal with this, albeit very slowly, but the company has told me that their terms and conditions, which I should have read, are watertight and as I have involved Direct Card Disputes they now cannot offer me compensation unless I get my bank to telephone them to dissolve their investigation which I have 99.9% of losing. My others issue is, I never received these goods but company say they are not responsible a nd I should take

  9. I purchased an s3 i while ago on the 3 network pay monthly and had many technical issues with the handset which resulted with the phone being sent away for repair. I was left without a phone for three weeks until it returned. This happened twice and until I upgraded my phone again with three but this time for (stupidly) another samsung, the note2. after about six weeks the phone failed again and i was told i would have to send it away again. I refused and demanded an immediate replacement and was told no the phone would just be sent away
  10. I need your advice. I believe that my husband was miss sold products by Barclays bank. We have lived overseas for the past 6 years. In that time he could not be considered a UK resident. He opened an account with them whilst overseas, and he used his sisters address as his own address. He did this as the last time he was over in Northern Ireland. While he was there he opened bank acc with Barclays using this address. This was in June 2008. He was then advised to open up a More4more acc. over the telephone. This was opened in April 2009 from Thailand. After reading their small print,
  11. 'I OUTSOURCE PRINTED PRODUCTS AND CHOOSE VARIOUS SUPPLIERS TO PRODUCE THEM. I WAS LOOKING AT A COMPETITORS WEBSITE AND FOUND 2 OF MY CLIENTS PRODUCTS IN THEIR GALLERY. BOTH THESE PRODUCTS ARE CURRENT ORDERS AND IT APPEARS THE FACTORY THAT MADE THEM FOR ME HAS SENT THEM OUT AS SAMPLES(WHICH I UNDERSTAND) but this competitor has added them to his website along with many other bags which i recognise from the same MANUFACTURER. I stopped using this mfg some time ago and its apparent that he still has these samples so who do i complain to ? CAN I COMPLAIN? or is it something that there is no
  12. Hi, I bought a laptop from apple a few years ago (2008), which was subsequently replaced due to issues and faults last year (April 2012). My new laptop has now also come up with a bunch of issues, which after an appointment with apple has indicated an internal issue. I talked to the manager asking whether my laptop would be covered under the "Sales of Goods Act", to which the manager said no due to the fact that, the protection granted from this only applies to the original product and from the original point of sale and that I have no claim. I asked the question before I left aski
  13. Hi, Can anyone help with this ? Purchased a watch of an online auction (bidspotter) it had very little information on the description. Anyway, cut the story short I won the bid it arrived and it is not working eg faulty. I have obviously complained, and was duly told read our t&c's NO REFUND. Surely my statutory rights apply, as they did not state it was in a faulty condition ? The Sale of Goods Act 1979 makes it an implied term of the contract that goods be as described of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.
  14. FSA/PN/071/2012 29 Jun 2012 The FSA has today announced that it has found serious failings in the sale of interest rate hedging products to some small and medium sized businesses (SMEs). We believe that this has resulted in a severe impact on a large number of these businesses. In order to provide as swift a solution to this problem as possible we have today confirmed that we have reached agreement with Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds and RBS to provide appropriate redress where mis-selling has occurred. The banks will move to provide redress directly for those customers that bought the
