    • 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.    
    • The legal campaign's going well then. The recount in Wisconsin gave Trump more votes but Biden even more, at a cost of $3m. And a donor to the organisation bringing the failed cases is suing to get his $2.5m back.   https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/28/joe-biden-gains-votes-in-wisconsin-county-after-trump-ordered-recount
    • Yes Unicorn feed tax again, can't sue the keeper for more than the Original Charge, so any additional Debt Collection fees aka the £60 they add is abuse,iof process as per HHJ Harvey at Lewes county Court What lookedinfroinfo is indicating is that the main signage on entry and dotted around is merely an " Invitation to Treat", not the offer, the Offer and Acceptance occurs at the payment machine, so wording there is key.

Have you a contingency plan should LD/the college/Insurance company drop their court claim at the very last moment.
I would think TLD has this covered. However, for the benefit of the ever present Guests, here's a possible clue:

 

RICHARD DURKIN v. DGS RETAIL LIMITED+HFC BANK PLC, 26 March 2008, Sheriff J K Tierney

 

Was that splattering sound we just heard the involuntary projectile discharge of late-afternoon latté coffee?

 

Cheers,

Yes.

 

CPR also gives Fred the right to apply for any notice of discontinuance to be set aside. They were offered a chance to discontinue but instead chose to amend the POC and pursue the claim, this might turn out to be a very poor decision by the claimant.

 

Right to apply to have notice of discontinuance set aside

 

38.4

 

(1) Where the claimant discontinues under rule 38.2(1) the defendant may apply to have the notice of discontinuance set aside(GL).

Oh yes full story and pics NOTW style.:D

 

 

I was wondering the same. What If the Court doesn't allow them to discontinue? Would that be good or bad for Fred?

 

I think there's a chance with what has been brought to the attention of the Court that discontinuance might not be an option for them. It's to do with the overriding principles......

 

If the Court refused them or accepted an application by Fred that any notice of discontinuance be set aside this is doubly good for Fred.

 

1) It is very much to his benefit that this is heard before a Court and subject to a Judicial decision.

 

2) The Court refusing or acccepting a petition from Fred will imply that like everyone who has read any more than two posts on this thread the Court have seen sufficient proof of what might be tantamount to malfeasance that they believe the hearing is in the best interests of justice. (See 1 above). So yes very good for Fred as it means they are alert to his concerns which lets face it they appear to be as of the latest order.

You have the right to food money.

If you don't mind a little investigation, humiliation, and if you cross your fingers rehabilitation..............

If it's not too cheeky could I trouble someone who knows what's going on for a summary of recent events? You all seem very happy but I'm struggling to follow it after 86 pages.

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.

Hi Zamzara, Kiptower's done an excellent summary and I just want to add that there will be a certain amount of confusion for now, because there are some sensitive matters that are not being openly discussed at the moment for obvious reasons, but if you can bear with us, all will be revealed asap.;)

My daughter, (Annushka on the thread) who knows Fred, has decided that Mark Addy most closely resembles him. This may be a fitting choice as Mark Addy has already played someone called Fred once.:D

Fred is not amused as he does rather see himself as a Tom Cruise type, as AT pointed out.

I think Robert Carlye could be a good choice myself.

Well, I think we all agree that the Muppets should be booked to play LD.

 

In that case, we'll need some real specialists to play PCAD and associates:

 

the-marx-brothers-1661.jpg

 

The one in the middle is playing the Geezer from the dubious Security Company at the moment when PCAD realised the mess he made of the quotations and dates.

 

That just leaves us needing somebody weird and theatrical in a wig to play the Judge:

Sorted, we have the full cast.

If I have a say in the casting, I'd rather be lifted by Brad Pitt if it's all the same to you, Patma. :razz:

I'm sure Fred would agree with you, he'd definitely prefer to be seen as a Brad Pitt type than someone from the Flintstones.

 

BRW you've obviously got real casting ability. Who's going to play you?

What about David Mitchell to play a young George in the flashback scenes to a troubled childhood which saw him bullied incessantly during his school years?

And I'm just off the 'phone to his agent and the PCAD childcatcher has kindly agreed to play himself.

Hmmm... Brainy, strong, good friend... I'm thinking Julia Roberts in Erin Brokovich mode, what do you think?

 

As for Van Damme, what an insult! Is TLD a cokehead in love with himself?... Ok, maybe he is :shock:, but for him, I'm thinking Ralph Fiennes or maybe Stephen Fry. :razz:
