    • I am getting conflicting advice from friends about this issue. I am hoping somebody can end my confusion. A couple of weeks ago I took my Mum out for her birthday. Another driver scratched the front passenger side near the bumper of my car as it was parked up. There are no dents just quite severe paint work damage. He scraped his car against mine. The other driver drove off. Luckily there was 2 witnesses who got the other drivers reg number. Cut a log story short the other driver said he didn’t realise he damaged the paintwork on my car. He has however admitted liability. His insurance is paying out. Last Thursday my car was taken away to have the paintwork done. Today I been told my car has been put down as a total loss (not a write off).  As it is only paintwork damage and not body work or mechanical damage, I don't understand why it has been put down as a total loss. I have been told by the insurers I can either write the car off and receive payment to the value of the car or I can take a lower payment and get the car repaired myself.   I am getting conflicting advice from friends. Some are saying if I keep my car and get the repairs done myself the car will then be classed as a category S or category M and I will no longer be able get insurance on the car as it will be classed as written off. As it is only paintwork damage and not body work or mechanical damage, I don't understand that. My questions are  If I take the payment to get the paintwork repair done myself will I still be able to insure my car when the insurance is up for renewal? If I take the payment to get the paintwork repair done myself will my current insurance policy be voided? If my car does get classed as category M or S will the stop me from selling it on the future? Thanks
    • Yes, it is just for Tesco. But as that manager explained, those two spaces on that ground are now rented by the electric company. "What appeal?  Private parking companies never, ever, ever accept appeals - ever." What is my next move then, please? Just wait for them to issue me with whatever it is they issue, and then what? 
    • so how are you doing OP?  Letter of claim ready?

    • 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.

After seeing the Daily Mail's article (still ongoing) re claiming back charges, then Trevor McDonalds TV prog. I was determined to get my long lost lolly refunded too. Accessed this wonderful site and took a while reading FAQ's and other threads until I felt confident enough to start :)

 

Unfortunately, I now realise I was too impatient and started by telephoning NatWest customer services 06.06.06 requesting 6 years worth of statements -

they duly deducted the £5 charge for this the next day 07.06.06 now there's a surprise!!.

 

Then out of the blue a guy from my local branch calls to tell me I have gone £7 over my limit and will have £38 deducted for the pleasure of doing so! :mad:

I very sweetly and politely told him no matter I am currently in the process of claiming back all UNLAWFUL charges and will just add this £38 quid to the list. :)

 

However, am I surprised? (rhetorical question - no need to answer) by the 27.06.06 no statements!! So I wrote complaining - to the Bishopsgate address - no reply received yet. I also telephoned customer services again (see - my impatience knows no bounds) the lady was "surprised I had received nothing" and suggested she request them again "at no further cost" (too bloody right luv) but they take between 5 and 10 days to come. So, what I am really trying to say after all this waffle is that I regret not starting the process off in writing with the Data Protection Act letter and keeping everything in writing 'cos otherwise they can

fanny around and employ delaying tactics giving them more time to earn more interest on your money. Love you guys x

Welcome Ollie-Bollie (who wants his lolly!, sorry couldn't help myself)

 

Couldn't have said it better myself!! You deffinitely should have done it all in writing cause then you would at least have had proof of any communication you had had with them. Also if it got to the court stage you would also have letters to bring to court. It seems as though the only thing you have done in writing is send a complaint to Bishopsgate.

 

Anyway my advice is that you had better slow down otherwise you will give the impression (or should i say make it obvious) that you don't know what you're doing and they will think they can run rings around you.

 

Good luck and keep us posted, we're all with you!

My six years of statements took over the 40 days to get to me... why? the post office had to repack them as the envelope they sent them in disintergrated in transit... so it took the royal mail a while to repack and send it on... this might be your problem.

Yes it had crossed my mind. The reason I regret not putting it in writing in the first instance is because I would have received them by now (they state between 5 - 10 days) my first request was on 6th June. Now they have a further 5 - 10 days (and who would bet against it being the longer?). Anyway I appreciate your input. Regarding the flimsy packaging they put the statements in and the almost certainty it will split - thereby exposing confidential info to the world and his wife Why can't an action be brought under Data Protection 'cos they haven't "protected" my/your Data?

:confused:

That's an interesting point about the envelope thing. A number of threads have said about flimsy brown envelopes. Can't answer the flimsy bit but I can about the brown envelope. The reason it would be in a brown envelope is to protect your identity because fraudsters/ ID theft people would know the typical NW envelope with return address PO Box etc,etc,. Before you say it I realise the fact the envelope breaks does open it up to id theft(if you'll pardon the obvious pun!)

I too am waiting for my statements, i sent my letter asking for 6 years worth on the 24th may with my £10. (The £10 cheque was cashed on the 6/6/06) Nothing arrived so i rang the customers relation lot the other day (27/6/06) and asked them where they were.

 

They go a bit snotty with me and asked why did i think it would cost £10 to get these statements. I got feed up with them so i threatened them with informing the information commissioner with not complying with the data protect act.

 

They will arrive on Saturday now !!!!

 

They did charge me another £5 which i noticed today, so i rang the lending centre and they refunded me the money. 20 minutes later i got a call from customer relations saying sorry for them mistake. Which surprised my no end.!!!;-) ;-)

I hope that the do get to you, I did get a set of statements in a white envelope, but its was only a years worth... I have two claims going at the same time with nat west. the first set arrived within 10 days, and in a normal envelope. I was supprised about them being so quick. However, reading round on this site, its common for the envelopes to burst. I did write to compain but to be honest didnt expect to much.

Hi I sent the '1st draft letter' to Natwest from the 'Money Savings Expert' website. It is a standard but official letter. I sent it to my local branch on the 12th June 06. I had a very polite letter from the Custmer Lending Dept in Bristol dated 15th June. 3 days not bad!! Promised to investigate and contact me by 30th June. On 28th June received 6 years of bank statements at no charge. The bank statements were delivered in a clear plastic bag and a torn envelope. Thank goodness I am overdrawn or anyone could have the details anywhere!! A ripped letter with them 'hoped that I am happy with their proposal' What 'proposal'? Still they are taking it seriuosly and I am sending the 2nd letter from the 'Money Saving Expert' today. Don't give up, but my advice is to do it with the official letters as they have alll the legal wording and the legal time limits where the bank has to respond. It may take a little longer but in my experience Natwest are taking notice.;)

Hunbun;)

:mad: On checking the batch of statements (Friday) they had sent only 2 years worth!!

 

On complaining to Cust Services Dept the first person asked me to hold whilst she transferred me to a colleague AND PROMPTLY CUT ME OFF. I rang straight back spoke to a guy who again said i should speak to a colleague - I said "You won't cut me off will you?" " No, no I promise" he said AND PROMPTLY CUT ME OFF! By now I was really cross and called for a third time - the lady agreed I had reason to complain:-

 

1. Re split envelope (first batch) which the post office re packaged.

 

2. The possibility that this could lead to a fraud on my account.

 

3. I had asked for 6 years statements and only been sent 2 years.

 

She promised me that she would own the problem and call me straight back, this was approximately 16.20 Friday. I AM STILL WAITING TO BE CALLED. In the meantime on Saturday morning another damaged envelope arrived with just a post office red band around it (huge split in the side) with the remaing 4 yrs of statements.

Mercifully they all seem to be there. But has anyone any suggestions who I can complain to, within the NatWest empire. I would be very grateful for any help.

Hi

This all just sounds toooo funny for words... I received my statements in the saddest brown envelope all torn to shreds and slightly held together with an elastic band. I can not imagine the mentality of Nat West to do such a childish thing. Clearly someone has given the instruction to do this. I do not believe your average Nat West worker (those who actually package the statements to us) would feel this spitefull.

 

At the time I just laughed at their patheticness; but having read some of this brilliant site... I may well forward a complaint on the grounds of potential fraud and Nat Wests lack of proper protection of my personal details.

1. Debit Interest

2. Paid Referral Fee

3. Excess Borrowing

OK so now we're rocking and rolling. Spent a couple of hours checking and re-checking statements and come to the grand total of £1134.00 robbed from me by Snatchwest :evil: in the last six years.

 

Have typed up the 14 day "give me MY money back you *****ing gits" letter and will send it 2 miles up the road to my local branch - 1st class recorded of course. :rolleyes:

 

Of course, I will make a donation to this wonderful site when all is resolved. ;)

U-P-D-A-T-E ;)

 

10.07.06 posted (1st class recorded) letter requesting refund of £1134.00 with attached schedule of charges but minus the 8% interest (at this stage).

 

11.07.06 According to Royal Mail Website they received letter.

 

13.07.06 received reply from Deputy Dawg - er sorry Manager quote -

 

"Thank you for your patience whilst I have been looking into your concerns regarding charges.

 

I am sorry that we have not yet resolved matters, so whilst I had hoped to be in a position to resolve matters by now, I am not yet able to respond to you fully as I need to order statements for your account. This will take several days as the information is up to six years ago.

 

I will contact you again within the next two weeks with an update if not a full response once I receive the information.

 

We are here to help, so if you would like to discuss this further please call me on xxxx xxx xxxx and I will be happy to assist". End of letter.

 

:?: - after the 14 days from first letter which would take me to 26.07.06 can I automatically send LBA letter?? As I think the bit where she says "within the next two weeks with an update if not a full response" is just giving them more time. Unless of course they make an offer or settle in full??

Thank you for that Lipscombe. Believe me I DO read threads on this site - loads! but it's so gratifying when someone answers your particular question - even though you could have had the answer a hundred times over from someone else's thread. Appreciate your help. This site is wonderful beyond words.;)

Also, I sent the prelim letter to my local branch, but I am sure that somewhere on this site they tell you to send the LBA letter to a different address. Do you know if it should be the London EC address please?? Anyone.............:?:
