    • 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 was graced with the displeasure of having 2 letters from Crapquest today regarding 2 debts with Royal Bank of Scotland. These debts are from 1998 and 2000. This is the first contact I have had from Crapquest and I adv that the debts are stat barred. They told me that in no uncertian terms are these debt stat barred. This I know to be incorrect due to me being a Senior Debt Recovery Officer.I have sent the Stat barred letter to them by fax and by post today.The only problem is that just inder 2 yaers ago I obtained a copy of my Credit Report and I am sure that there was a CCJ from RBS which expired in November 2006.Where will I stand now?I am quite worried as it is over £4k of debt and I just cannot afford to pay anything back as my income only just covers my outgoings and I have to work alot of overtime each month to make ends meet.

It is up to the DCA to PROVE that these debts are valid and enforceable, not you to prove otherwise.

Wait and see what CQ have to say for themselves.


As a side CCJ's are NOT governed by the Limitations Act and have NO time limit. Although after this length of time they would need to go back to court to renew enforcement.

Be VERY careful whose advice you listen too

Sorry further to that if RBS has sold the debt to Cap then surely the CCJ will no longer stand anyway as they have sold the debt to a third party who, in their letter have threatened to "utilist the legal system to its full entent"

Very doubtful, but there are other avenues available to have a CCJ set aside.

Have a look at this for further information: Removal of CCJ's - Valid reasons to have your judgements set aside


Selling a CCJ'd debt is acceptable, but as they have mentioned legal action I doubt the know about it or it wasn't correctly enacted.

Be VERY careful whose advice you listen too

Update on Capquest and RBS.I received two letters from Capquest, on different days for the same account (Guessing it was for the two accounts I have with them)These letters advise me that the account is on hold - the hold is due to expire on 15 December and 19 December 2007.This morning I received a letter from H L Legal solicitors threatning County Court action and they have added interest to the debt!I contacted them and advised that as the account is on hold and that I have this in writing that it was rather underhand for them to take action like this. The man I spoke to added a further 30 day hold on the account when I told him not to.I called back and got through to what I could only describe as a judgmental bully. He told me that the last payment made was on 15/09/00 but as RBS did not pass the account until May 2007 then the debt is not stat barred. He blamed me for not making repayments and taking the loan knowing full well that I would not pay it back. I then became quite upset and advised that if it was not for losing my job, having a drug addidction which eventually resulted in me losing my home and having a partner who thought that domestic violence was acceptable. If I had not had any intention of not paying the debt I would not have made any payments at all.I have written a further letter to Capquest explaining this to them and adding the Limitation Act and last payment/contact stuff.I am really worried now as I was bascially accused of making excuses for this debt.I am really considering an IVA or Bankruptcy but I know that these debts are un enforceable and dont see why I should put myself through more distress. I have paid off so many debts this year and I have done so well and this has just been a knockback.

Faye I agree with 2Grumpy.....it is 6 years since you either acknowledged the debt OR if you made a payment towards it....it is NOT when the debt get passed on - they are talking COBBLERS !!! Do NOT call them again as you need to get them to put anything they say to you in WRITING - they will tell you ANYTHING on the phone to get you to pay. Send them the Statute barred letter and write at the bottom of the letter - PLEASE NOTE I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY PHONE CALLS FROM YOUR COMPANY - ALL CORRESPONDENCE MUST BE IN WRITING ONLY - ANY CALLS MADE TO ME WILL BE CLASSED AS HARRASSMENT AND TREATED AS SUCH
