    • Hi slick!    On 22 July they said they would refund me £74.07 Theres no DD in place as my membership was a once off payment in November last year.  Hi Dx,    I paid through PayPal last year as a one off payment. 
    • I'm trying to understand it all but I certainly tend to agree with my colleague @dx100uk that it looks as if you may have been taken for a ride. You found an advertisement for a bag on an online sales site. Instead of going through the established procedure of that site, which presumably allows them to recover a commission from the seller you started dealing directly with the seller who is an unknown person to you and of course that allowed the seller to avoid paying the commission. At whose suggestion was it that you went off-site? You then pay by PayPal but instead of logging it with PayPal as a payment for a purchased item, you tell PayPal that it was actually simply a gift or transaction between friends and family. This also allowed the seller to avoid paying a PayPal fee on the money. At whose suggestion was it that you paid in this way?       I don't say that you definitely have been scammed, but it doesn't look very good. This is how it might have happened: after you agreed to take the transaction off-site, so you lost the protection of the established system – and the seller avoided the commission and also avoided the sales site knowing that they had sold their item, you then agreed to pay the seller some money – but not for a purchase – simply as a gift. This has two consequences. Firstly, the seller avoids a PayPal fee and secondly, because PayPal has been misled as to the purpose of the payment, you lose the protection of PayPal if it turns out that you've been scammed or there is some other problem with the transaction. The seller then apparently sent you the parcel and they sent you pictures of a package with your address on it. Separately they sent you a Hermes tracking number – but there is no evidence that the package was actually posted to your address. The seller might simply have taken a picture with your address and sent that to you by way of reassurance – and then changed the label and posted the parcel to themselves but sent you a tracking number which is inaccessible to you and in respect of which you will be prevented from getting any information. All you've seen is a parcel with your address on it. All you've been given is a tracking number which satisfied you for a while until the parcel did not arrive and then when you started to make enquiries, you found that you were unable to access any details referring to the tracking number. Of course the tracking number says that the item was delivered – because maybe it was – but in that case it was delivered to the address on the parcel which might have been the seller's own address – or the address of a friend. I don't want to say that this is definitely how it happened, but it is a plausible scenario. Of course Hermes is an awful lot of parcels – but on the other hand I expect that most of the parcel is that going to Hermes hands are delivered successfully. We only get the bad stories on this forum. I can imagine that Hermes rate of successful deliveries is better than 97% because otherwise people wouldn't simply just hate them, they would go out of business.   We can help you bring a complaint against Hermes if you want. However, on the basis of what you say, the odds are stacked against you but it would be useful to try and find out the address which was associated with tracking number. As far as your apparent willingness to travel hundred and 50 miles to ask for your money back, don't bother. If you did actually go there, are you sure that the seller actually lives at the address that you have been given? What evidence do you have that? Of course if you found that the seller didn't reside at that address then it is slamdunk that you have been scammed. But then what are you going to do? You can try to inform the police but of course it won't get you anywhere. You can inform the sales website – but they will say that you brought it on yourself because you agreed to go off-site. You can inform PayPal – that they will say that because you sent the money which was calculated to avoid their fees, you have lost the protection. If you travelled the 150 miles and found that the seller did reside at that address, do you really think that they are going to hand your money over to you? If they are acting dishonestly then they will simply say that it is nothing to do with them, that they addressed it all correctly and they don't understand what has happened and that this is simply Hermes up to their old tricks. What are you going to do? You simply risk getting into a very nasty argument and depending on how bad it went, you might even find that the police are called and I'm afraid that they would be looking at you – not the seller. Maybe you can answer the questions that I've post above as to who it is who initiated the various ways of doing business.

Good call re: the rabbit!;-)

 

Mine's never brought in fish either, never thought about that before! I've also had the voles, a HUGE rat (and he thought he was actually going to bring it in - caught him at the window though:lol:), but no bats - as yet!

 

My daughter doesn't seem to be affected by cat fur or most dogs but for some reason spaniels bring on her asthma and aggravate her eczema which is ever present anyway.

 

Nerves holding out - just. Hoovering, well what can I say, I've knackered that many Dysons - who says they live forever :confused: Mustn't forget the constant changing of the bed clothes - been through a few washing machines as well. Strangely my tumble dryer has lasted SIX whole years so far.

 

See Mich, you are definitely not alone, we'll get you over this hurdle one way or another!

Its alright, I've got three white bin bags of cuddly toys to wash- some of which were purchased by non-thinking relative, aren't washable and are going to have to disappear to the great toy shop in the sky. If they can't be washed they can't live here!

 

The only thing our cat has brought in was another cat- which he got the infestation from!

 

One of our previous cats brought in two living mice which she put down and they walked back out of the door- we were convinced she'd paid them to play along to make her look hard. She was incredibly dumb, but beautiful and we loved her!

 

We have two Dysons at present- a big one (with flea collar inside to kill any blighters that survive) and a posh hand held one- completely impractical as the charge only lasts for 6 minutes but can do the stairs/dropped cereal. You can tell it was a present, can't you (from the person with non-washable toys).

 

I'm off again to clear some woodchip- someone had a busy night.

You've got enough on your plate at the moment, haven't you!

 

Maybe for the tribunal write down a typical day or week if you can manage it. And put down everything from bedroom carnage to interesting incidents while out- you get the picture. And all the maintenance work you have to do, hoovering, repairs, (like I had to re-put up the curtain rail in the bedroom today, pulled down for the twentieth time- I'll have no wall left to drill/screw into next time). It all helps, especially if you make it a bad day!

Hey, we aim to please!

 

Explaining it to a tribunal is not going to be difficult - just tell them your average day or should I say, your average worst day coz from my experience the bad days far outweigh the good days.

 

You were saying about your son nearly losing his fingers by rubbing them along the carpet - I am constantly in fear of my daughter losing her fingernails as the skin around them is so loose - her hands are that of a 90 year old woman and yet she's only 11. We've been there believe me!

 

I have to say the wallpaper thing has gone with me. My daughter stopped stripping wallpaper a couple of years ago when we moved in to a house with.... no wallpaper however she does scratch at the walls so you can't win!

 

Keep your chin up, keep focussed and keep us informed.

Just remember the washing, hoovering, repairs, creams, wet wrapping, assistance with peak flow meters, keeping them away from the garden (dirt infects eczema), fighting to get them in the bath, hiding anything rough (to stop them rubbing it on themselves - my daughter used to go crazy for my Avon hoof (foot) pumice). You'll be amazed at the things you do every day but just don't think of!

 

Hey,hey, gotta go, there's a bloke on the telly with his pants down and it looks like the last turkey in the shop - you gotta laugh! :lol:

A flea collar inside a vacuum bag ?! What a bl**dy good idea, Emma !!! :D

 

Frontline Combo is good though.... spot treatment for the back of the neck... and also protects the surrroundings where the cat/dog sleeps. Expensive at around £28ish for 6 pipettes though....

 

Thinking of you Mich.... I don't want to overload you, but don't forget all the activities that other children do, but that your child can't participate in at all, or without help. Swimming was a key one for my daughter years ago because it was good for her asthma, but played havoc with ther eczema. She had to have creams and emollients applied immediately !! Help was needed because she couldn't reach everywhere herself and couldn't apply them fast enough to stop the flare-ups.

 

Just an example.... :)

hi all just thought i'd give you a quick update, where do i start more stress?? Well anyway my case worker called me today to ask if i would mind having my appeal adjorned as my doctors had requested £50 payment to release my son's records. I said to her you are just chasing this up now???? when you requested the info from June??? i'm not happy as i feel that all of this should have been sorted so anyway she tells me its good to have medical evidence in the submission but if we could still win without it. i ask her what she thinks she tells me its ok and that we dont need it and keeps changing her opinion well anyway she calls the surgery and they say cant send it out till monday night bear in mind the tribunal is friday then she im so sorry maybe we should get it adjorned in the end i go to the surgery get the info myself and send it off to her recorded delivery........madness so now i even more nervous as to how its gonna go now?:confused:

I didn't have my daughter's medical records at my Appeal, Mich.... and still won. Remember, the decision is based upon how much help a person needs.... not how ill they are.

 

I'm not even sure of the legality of asking for £50 anyway, since a S.A.R - (Subject Access Request) would release it all for £10. Who the hell do these doctors think they are ?!

I don't think I had anything from my GP and just a letter from my consultant (which she had "collaberated" with my welfare rights guy so it contained everything necessary- he sent it back twice until she got it right!).

 

Other than that, relax- if you think of something, carry a pad about and write it down. Then at least its out of your head. Sad but it works for me!

You just need to go, get there on time and answer anything they ask you. You will be fine.

 

Can't wait to hear how it goes- don't feel bad if you come across as a stressed Mum doing her best in difficult circumstances! It all helps- cry buckets if necessary, saying you are desperate for the extra help which DLA could pay for.

 

Good luck- I can't think of anything else- give it your best shot!

It is extremely stressful, but you won! And shouldn't you get extra child tax credit as well? That's a win in my book!

 

And it gets backdated to when you applied!

Brilliant news Mich and very well deserved - like Dave says, get on to the Family Fund now and get the extra help you need. If you don't need anything material, apply for a little holiday for you and the kids - the break will do you good and is well justified.
