    • Thank you for your advice so far, I appreciate it. However, while I don't have a problem with (subjective) reformatting of my posts, adding hyperlinks to keywords, etc., please can you stop editing the content of what I write - in this case, making sure this now potentially appears prominently for anyone searching the purchasing dealer on search engines? It is putting words in my mouth and is just rude. My earlier comments are based on what the dealer told me. Had I known what would have happened, should I have named them, I wouldn't have, as I cannot guarantee the veracity of the claim with my own eyes.    I am aware of the basic intricacies of needing to prove law, and how it works in general, and having to prove loss, etc. The only legal recourse mentioned was if I needed to pay for it myself - and if I need to go that way, I will keep a running update here to help others. I am aware I will have to pay for the repair myself before I go down any legal recourse. There are other aspects of the various acts that can also be explored if it appears they are not following their obligations, other than me paying and claiming back. I am not a lawyer, nor have I needed to understand that the legislation does this depth in the past - hence my asking for assistance here. The only reason I mentioned it in passing is that it is the last resort.   And again, I don't mean to sound ungrateful for the advice given thus far, and appreciate it, and you have already helped. I feel like we have gone straight to level 11.   My current view of this is: It's closer to £9k, having looked at it again today. You may be able to drop £9k at the drop of a hat - but I can't, especially around an already expensive time of the year. And I earn enough to put me in the smaller percentage of the county’s earners. I hated having to type that as it can come across as boasting, but I did it to explain that having that much liquid cash is unrealistic - especially with interest rates what they are. I would have to sell equity, cash out saving etc. This will take time. The only card I have with enough credit limit to cover that much is my company one, which is a no-go. I agree this is taking too long for a simple, albeit expensive fault. It's analogous to fixing a crack in a windscreen. No one would call for an engineer report on that situation to know what the cause and solution was The core driver for me arriving here asking for advice is the additional delay their potential cowboy of an engineering company will introduce. A view reinforced having spoken to them to arrange a date. I am not putting any more exact details or prices at this stage, because I don't want to be any more identified than you already have by changing the thread title. One Google and those with knowledge know exactly who I am, and I don't want to potentially damage relations with the parties on my side by opening a potential can of worms. Law of unintended consequences and all that. In hindsight, I regret naming anyone yet, as this can still realistically be resolved this week. I just wanted to initially come for education and understand my options. Hope for the best, plan for the worst. And to escalate if plan A or B didn't work.   To answer:     I think I have. I phoned them today again, asserting the complaint was raised as a rejection under section 75 and recorded the call. I plan to follow this up tonight in an email with all the magic incantations and keywords I seem to have to include. However, I would still appreciate it being proofread if I could send it to someone via a PM. This is not because I have left any details out, it is just that it will include details around the repair I do not want to put in the public domain at this time, as it may compromise my position.
    • Hobnail please don't take offence . DX covers so many different threads throughout the Forum so tends to be quite short in more ways than one. And while he may have been away from school when public relations were on the curriculum he is right when he said that you do need to understand how these crooks operate to be able to able to beat them in Court. All of us here want our members to win against the parking companies  and the best way is to see how others have handled similar situations. I expect he knows that you may not have looked at many threads on here to give you ideas to better your chances of winning.   You may have heard of the expression "Judge Lottery" on here where some judge comes up with an off the wall decision that virtually no other judge has come up with. So even where you have almost a cast iron case it can all go awry and the way to help circumvent these judges is to have sufficient knowledge and understanding to be able to counter his or her judgement.   I happen to think that no one should lose their case on airport land since the roads  are usually covered by the Road Traffic Act and /or Bye Laws since the land is not relevant land under PoFA. But it is surely better to be over qualified in your knowledge of your case rather than being under prepared. You never know until it is too late when you needed to be over qualified. We all hate it here when one of our members don't win their case so DX in his own sweet way🙂  is just making sure that you have the best possible chance of walking away a winner.   PS I had started to write this before Dx wrote his post just now.  
    • this thread is rather co-incidental to yours - same players same amount.     looks like prac/bw might have looked at credit files to see who also lived there at the time, whom sadly they think be responsible too.   you say like the above thread, EON refunded the £89 earlier as an over payment payment? how strange, and after you moved out now claim its owed.   you are correct in saying you owe nowt, its after you moved out....ruddy fleecers.   as that other thread too, does the PRAC letter state our client EON at the top?        
    • you indicated you had collected stuff from lowells sent your old address? that is what we are interest in?   what is in the vanquis GDPR return (SAR) is pretty much immaterial now as you've not mentioned or referred to any of it in your WS.
    • nope, i will use any tool in my book to make sure you get things right. we give vague answers because it's oneway to make people research and investigate by searching here on CAG .   i've lost count of the times here various CAG members have also asked you to research and read up.   its not done to annoy, it's not done to belittle, it's done because simon is a very very slippery customer and WILL exploit the slightest error.   you are now fast approaching the most important stage - witness statement exchange and unless that's done in a way that naisl him SHUT, she will have a very difficult time understanding and explaining everything infront of and to a judge. You can't be there, only she can and if you don't 1000% understand what is being put and done, how are you going to pass that understanding on?   me and other members can help you all we can and will to the dying end, but if it doesn't sink in...i dread to think of her chances....   dx

Hello,

 

I have just returned to work after nearly a year on Incapacity Benefit. On Monday I was advised by Jobcentre Plus that i would get a 'run-on' of my IB for 4 weeks after I start work.

 

Now when I checked my bank today, I noticed they hadn't paid, :-o:mad::mad::? I phoned payment office only to be told they don't do run-ons, if I had known that I would have delayed my start date, as my family are now penniless, i went into the branch (during work time i might add - new job and all) and they admit they have mis-advised me, however, all they can tell me to do is write in and complain, this is not suitable as we will have no f!"£$%^& cash this weekend,, my little boy is ill and my family need to f!"£$%^&*() eat.

 

I am so angry, and feel stuck. Can anyone suggest somebodyt I can speak to now, is there a secret depaqrtment somewhere who can handle my complaint, anything.....

 

I really need your help guys

Hi there. I'm far from an expert in this field, although have been at the mercy of DWP (Income Support/Incapacity Benefit) and Inland Rev (Child Tax Credits) for last 6 years. Don't want to 'put the boot in' but they're all a faceless bunch of b......s, robotic and with hearts(?) of stone. The bottom line is, no matter what they told you, you have no proof and cannot pin down any one individual for giving you such devastatingly incorrect information - and even if you could they would all close ranks and you'd still get no satisfaction. The most disturbing thing about your dilemma is that the scumbags don't really give a stuff whether or not your kids eat or not. In a 'crisis' they expect you to apply for a crisis loan:mad:, even though that could take the best part of a week, oh and in the meantime you are expected to beg, steal or borrow to put food on the table!

 

Sorry to be so negative but there is no quick fix when trying right wrongs done to you by the w.....s that some of us have to depend on in order to make ends meet. Try and keep your cool, chin up and all that, hopefully, in the not-too-distant future this living nightmare of yours will be but a distant memory. Oh and you'll have learnt, albeit the hard way, never believe what any of the benefit agency w.....s tell you - grab any piece of paper to hand, thrust a pen/pencil into their hand and demand that they put it writing, sign and date it AND stamp it!!! I hope your troubles are short lived. Regards and good luck.

I think you have been misinformed about continuing to get IB, however you may be eligible for a new benefit called return to work credit.

 

Although it says you must claim within 5 weeks, this can be extended if you have a sufficiently good reason, which could include being given wrong information.

 

You may also qualify for working tax credit, entitlement to it is complex but can be calculated on entitledto.com.

Post by me are intended as a discussion of the issues involved, as these are of general interest to me and others on the forum. Although it is hoped such discussion will be of use to readers, before exposing yourself to risk of loss you should not rely on any principles discussed without confirming the situation with a qualified person.

You ar eright Zamzara, I have been misinformed, and that is the nature of the problem. The good news is though Bezzer, they admit they were in the wrong, and I have a case for compensation.

 

The main reason for my question is that I was hoping there might be a way to move things along more quickly, I really can't wait for the time it taskes to write read and respond to a letter, I will be ok in a few weeks, it's just now, because of this I cannot afford to pay my rent, and I am worried my landlord might start the eviction process.

I shouldn't worry too much about that - the law is on your side and in any case the time it takes to instigate the eviction process, you'll be quids in!!!
