  3. Deborah Jane asked for help on this one Don't give up - you will get a standard response that you can't do anything about it from their customer support - james or jesse. Contest that several times - keep the evidence and dates because you need to prove this in a later claim, give them a final deadline - Argument to use is that CV deliberately mimic the DVLA site to confuse you - this according to trading standards is misleading and a judge at court is quite likely to support a claim - Offer to settle at 75 - 80% of what you lost - Give them a deadline of 10 or 14 days to respond Say that if you get no response you will take court action to recover Likely that they will respond agreeing to pay. You need to prove to them that you are going to be more trouble than it is worth for them .. good luck JUST BY WAY OF RECAP - ARGUMENTS TO MAKE: website misleading - deliberate attempt to confuse consumers under consumer protection regulations it is not allowed to mislead - look and feel of CV site designed to mislead notice to them 14 days to respond then final demand 7 days 7 days ; I will commence court proceeding You need at least two letters giving notice of court action these are called "letter before action"
  4. A survey of 2,000 tourists placed the Catalonian city ahead of Paris, Rome and Amsterdam, while 80 per cent of those questioned said they believed Britons were deliberately targeted for potential [causing problems] opportunities. Barcelona has long been known as a hot spot for pickpockets, with tourists on Las Ramblas particularly susceptible. In April Telegraph Travel reported on a growing problem with pickpockets in the French capital. Cash-carrying Chinese and Russian tourists at the Louvre were said to have been targeted by increasingly aggressive thieves, many of them children. And in May four British tourists paid an extortionate £54 for ice creams in Rome. The incident prompted the city’s mayor to offer them a free holiday by way of apology. More... If I asked for an ice-cream and was charged £54 for it, I would tell them to stuff it.
  5. If anyone is offered a loan via a company called city financial DO NOT FALL FOR THIS [problem]. they offer a loan, as do many, after an up front fee of £67 with a promise of a decent loan amount at a decent interest rate, then once the fee is paid, lo and behold, there is NO application through the post, and no loan offer. the only offer we got was from another loan company offering to give us money after we PAID MORE UP FRONT FEES. they are very genuine sounding, with a registered company number and address that show up at companies house (this is probably also false - beware of this tactic). Again they trade as CITY FINANCIAL under NORTH FINANCIAL SERVICES and are complete and utter thieves. they say they are trading as: NORTH FINANCIAL SERVICES LIMITED 13A HYDE ROAD WOODLEY STOCKPORT CHESHIRE UNITED KINGDOM SK6 1QG Company No. 06875572 tel nos 0161 4065910 0161 4065914 i am bewildered how a [problem] like this can exist in these times. how is it possible?
