    • Interesting. Thanks for that London.  That’s what I’m gathering.     iv no doubt they would send me fake documents but would they really dare present fake documents to a court of law?
    • Thank you very much for your letter in regard to the above mentioned shipment.  Due to the high volume of parcels coursing through the courier network each day, undergoing continuous processing and handling, certain packages may experience delays or even can get lost in the course of this journey. Please note that due to the time that has passed, this shipment has been declared as lost.  I have today processed the claim and made offers to the value of £75 as a goodwill gesture without prejudice. I do acknowledge that you have mentioned in your letter that the value was higher, however, you did not take out any protection to that amount. The protection for this shipment was £20 and we will not be increasing our goodwill offer any further.    Please log into your account online in order to accept our offer. Once accepted, our accounts department will process the claim accordingly. The claim payment will be processed and received within 7 working days.                                  In addition, a refund of the carriage fee will be processed as a separate payment and will be received within 3 working days.  If I can further assist, please feel free to contact me.   I have also just noticed that yesterday afternoon they sent me an email stating that "after my request" they have refunded the cost of shipping. I did not request the refund so will mention that in my letter as well.
    • Hi I had to leave Dubai back in 2011, during the financial crisis. And only now have I received a letter from IDRWW. Is this anything to worry about about as I have 2 years left until it’s been 15 years(statute barred in Dubai). Worried as just got a mortgage 2 years ago. Could they force me in to bankruptcy? Red lots of different threads on here. And unsure what true and what isn’t. 
    • Not that TOR will see this now he's thrown in the hand grenade. Rayner has plenty of female supporters on X, for a start. As for the council and HMRC, fair enough and I thought Rayner was already in touch with them. That's where it should be dealt with, not the police force. @tobyjugg2 Daniel Finkelstein thinks the same as you about tax. The Fiver theory.

    • Often with the Likes of Lowells/ Overdales that 'proof' doesn't stand up to scrutiny.   Think about it like a game of poker, they want to intimidate you into folding and giving up as soon as possible, and just get you to pay up and roll over, that is their business model, make you think your cards are rubbish. What they don't expect, and their business isn't set up for it, is for a defendant to find this place and to learn that they have an amazing set of cards to play. Overdales don't have an infinite number of lawyers, paralegals etc, and the time / money to spend on expensive court cases, that they are highly likely to lose, hence how hard they will try to get you to roll over.  Even to the extent of faking documents, which they need to do because the debts that they purchased were so cheap, in the first place. Nevertheless it works in most cases, most people chicken out, when they are so close to winning, and a holding defence is like slowly showing Overdales your first card, and a marker of intention that this could get tricky for them. In fact it may be,  although by no means guaranteed that it won't even go any further than that.  Even if it does, what they send you back will almost certainly have more holes than Swiss Cheese, and if with the help you receive here, you can identify those weaknesses and get the whole thing tossed in the bin.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I would like to thank everyone on this site for their valuable advise and help. Without this site it would have been a lot harder to fight the banks.


My special thanks to;


lateralus, rob-the-viking,freakyleaky and castlebest.


My court date was last week, the judge rejected the HSBC's attempts to stay. HSBC's solicitor decided to withdraw their representation once the stay was rejected and I won by default.


What was quite helpfull in my case against their attempt for stay which i would recommend is that one should emphasis and point out to the judge D&G's delaying behaviour during the claim; missing deadlines, showing no respect to the court procedures & the court's authority, wasting court's time etc....


Their solicitor was claiming that i didn't send my court bundle and they didn't receive an objection letter from me to their intention to apply for a stay. I was lucky that i had sent all my vital documents recorded to D&G, I produced those at court-Very useful


My total claim is 1975.01 pounds, I also managed to claim the following;


postage, interest @8%, transport, bundle preparations (printing costs @20p per page).


Make sure you have the breakdown of your costs as well as your total amount when you are at court, it is easy to forget items to claim...


I will be making a donation to this site.


Good luck everyone

Excellent news. Well done..:) As Pete has said could we possibly have your claim details eg Claim Ref No. and the name of the court that was dealing with your claim, so that I can add it to the list of settled claims.

Superman's court had struck out the defence due to abuse of process (DG Solicitors had yet again ignored the court and missed deadlines to submit their doucumnets)


we have had a few successes along these lines but it does depend on DG's lack of response to the courts directions.

I second dizzybizzy, would realy like to hear what happened in as much detail as I'm in court in a fortnight today and hoping for some strong arguements to lodge.


Also be interested to hear how you managed to claim costs and what form you submitted for that.

thanks for the feedback, but what did dg miss to do, it seems they do/have not done much rgarding the courts and got away, they did not send in a bundle to the court by the said deadline in my case and seemingly most of all the others or did they, when i found out they had not and before the court date i wrote in to the courts and asked to be "struck out" heard nothing went to court in front of the judge she said doesnt matter they will or would have argued the points of law, my case was about 8 days after the oft filing of court, she wanted to move onto the stay i objected, not enough time to duiscuss, resheduled for this friday for TWO HOURS !!

so should they have sent a bundle in to court as me by the date, if yes why was it not struck out, is this not an abuse of process.

spoke to the court today to try and get copies of case, impossible, but given a little info"judgement given by default"

i am also told that a "lay representative"casnnot represent the claimant.


would be very pleased to receive any/all comments as within this.
