    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I have an old debt - clubbie I think - fom two addresses ago in which I am owe them £386.90 - I must have missed out writing to them when I moved, and have been meaning to do something about it for last year but just never got round to it. Its been passed to a DCA who have sent me a letter before Action, And since then sent me an offer saying I can pay reduced figure of approx £115 (Letter is at home) to pay this debt off.

 

This is quite a few years old - should I accept the reduced figure, or am I better to offer to pay the full amount? Its the only unpaid debt I have on my credit file - I havent made contact with them about this debt yet.

Okay - cool forgot about that. Out of interest I am in scotland so as we can only claim back 5 years is this also the same limit for them chasing us? And should things in Scotland only be kept on credit file for 5 years or does this come under English law and is therefore 6?

 

Thanks for any advice - also i have a thread I am waiting for an updated response on for my si...if anyone can help with it that would be great - its for goods not received but company ognored letters and passed to a DCA....
