    • forget CAB you might as well phone bt back as thats about as useless as they'll be.   you can't have a rolling 24mts contract', bt rolling contracts are month to month only, thats an industrywide accepted definition of what rolling means.   what happened here is she earlier changed her 'package' removing skt to reduce costs. as with all providers that invoked = means she entered into a new 24mts contract.   she latterly phone to cancel that contract, and thus bt charged her the cancellation fee/loss of revenue over the raining months of the contract.   the fact that she owes them 'this money' but didn't pay it, then entitled them sadly to cancel the mobile contract, which sadly again they allowed to do.   rock and a hard place if she wants to keep the same mobile number.   Or as long as her phone is not imie blocked by bt (in otherwords she purchased from BT under the mobile contract) but simply locked to BT (which is easily gotten around for a small fee at many shops/market stalls or if someone is tech savvy follow the guides on youtube to unlock the phone for an even smaller fee. and wack a new sim in it.   as for the £800 bill simply ignore them. they'll sell the debt on  and if anyone like Lowells or anyother powerless DCA debt buyer wants to do court, it's easily defended we've not lost one case like that here.        
    • The 1st 2 calls were the normal scam calls. get a truecall box   the PDC stuff you ignore their letter States our client three whom if you wanted too you deal with directly.   Until/unless whenever it gets sold on too and they eventually send a letter of claim you maintain radio silence    
    • hi all. bit of advice please. I had a Three contract up until November last year. At £11pcm for 24mths. Paid every month on time via their online portal. When I ported over, I received a letter from Three thanking me for being a customer blah blah blah.. It also said IF I owed anything a final bill will be sent. No final bill ever received - I get a phone call around the first week in December form an Indian sounding man who was extremly difficult to understand. Said he was calling from Three, and wanted me to confirm my details - something of which I didnt as something didnt sit right. He said I could log into my account and review my bill as I owed money and then hung up. After the call I thought I'd best log into my account just in case.  Couldnt log in. Account access denied. Logged on to chat - they said as I ported over and I was no longer a customer my access was suspended. Couple of weeks later I had another call from a local area number and answered again it was some Indian guy telling me I owed money, wanting me to confirm details. I refused and he said details will be sent out to me to my email on account and my home address as it was important. Once again nothing.. 15th Dec I received an email from PastDue in my name RE Three. Email stated they were contacting me about Three an I should receive a letter soon regards to this matter. Says about visiting their website.  22nd Jan another email form Pastdue. Stating they have yet to receive a response to the letter, and they had already sent me an email about this. We will continue to contact you until this matter is resolved. Again asks me to login. 23rd Jan letter received dated 13th Jan. Titled "We are here to help keep your Three Services"  Claiming I owed "Airetime Balance £201.43" and contract period was 26/11/2019 to 25/11/2020 States "We have been appointed by Three to recover the amount of £201.43. If you pay this amount in full Three may be able to waive the cancellation fee and reconnect their service for you" - what cancellation fee / re connection??? I ended the contract giving the 30days notice and paying the last bill.. Then the normal crap about its important to pay. If I'm experiencing difficulties etc. Now both December and  January Credit reports from ClearScore, Credit Karma, Credit Expert, Totally Money and Equifax all show Three as Closed and balance as Zero. (Date Satisfied /closed 17th Nov, bal 0, last updated 30th Nov) I've had nothing from Three. As far as I'm concerned I owe nothing as no final bill and no access to the portal. Should I email PastDue and do a prove it & attach proof of Credit Reports being £0 or do I do something else?

    • 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!

Ok,

 

So I have been following this thread for a while and I think TLD and Patma have been doing some sterling work to get Fred through this stinking mess of ****(my asterisks as I couldn't print what I would call it!!)

 

What I want to ask is - I know there is now a date to be in court in November but I am confused - is Fred also in court tomorrow as originally planned?

I wonder what the "a couple of legal actions" that were underway in 2006 were.... And if any of them has been discussed further with the audit committee yet.

That's very interesting AT. I'll do some more digging into that. Did you notice in that report it also says one insurance claim was incurred in that year. We know what that was;)

Thankyou Feebee,

The hearing due to take place tomorrow has been adjourned until 17th November, on the advice of Devon and Cornwall Police's Senior Legal Adviser, who is being very helpful.

The claimant's didn't like it at all but the judge gave them no choice.:D

What they probably like even less is the fact that the Police now seem to have sided with Fred.

Hi Patma,

 

I was trying to get my head around all the information which has been added to this site in the last couple of weeks - while I was away on holiday - and didn't want to have to go back over everything to work out where things were.

 

Now I am going to have to wait until I am back from my holiday in November to find out what happens as I go off to the Canary Islands on the 16th November!!

I think that two students were injured on the campus and made personal injury claims against the college in the previous year. When you look at the recent photos we took and see the ramshackle manner in which the paths, roadways car parks and barriers are maintained at that college it's probably not surprising but we don't actually have any details of either of these two personal injury claims other than that both were being defended by-------->------->-----> The college and their insurers!!:eek::eek:

Hi, Just to reassure everyone that we haven't disappeared down a black hole, just waiting for news at the moment and having a few days catching up with life.

I sent Plymouth College of Art's Finance Director(George Dexter) :D a FOI request on 24th August, which he carefully ignored till I cc'd a reminder a week later to the person with overall responsibility for FOI and then I got a terse acknowledgment from Mr Dexter informing me he had instructed a colleague to deal with it.

I'd asked for Plymouth College of Art's Procurement and Disposals Policy, so it will be interesting to see what the document reveals and how their "official "policy tallies with what happened with the barrier.

FOI's have already produced some very valuable information that have shown up some rather big porkies :D

Oh, I don't know, Middenmess, I haven't been able to get on for the last couple of days, and usually there would be another 3-4 pages to catch up with, so this is a bit of a relief! :-D

I understand another FOI request has also been made of the college. This one is concerned primarily with establishing the Data Protection policies with respect to the CCTV recording, and the audit policy to be followed when a potentially criminal incident is captured on CCTV and any captured images are to be used for evidential purposes. The applicant has also I believe requested confirmation that the entire VHS tape from which PCAD took the 5 minutes when Fred was at the barrier has been securely stored in its original format with a view to forcing the college to release the footage which shows the penultimate and any other preceeding students/lecturers exiting the car park that day. Imagine the problems it might cause Plymouth College of Art if the person before Fred also had to lift up the broken barrier manually?

 

Being a FOI request concerning data protection and related issues the request also extends to the 'Data Retention Policy' of Plymouth College of Art. I personally struggle to believe that it is standard procedure for all records of an item which costs the college several thousands of pounds might be destroyed after three years, especially when such an item is subject to litigation and legal contest. I expect to learn that the data retention policy at Plymouth College of Art is actually far greater than three years, this was certainly the case for student records which implies to me at least that either this information is being witheld unlawfully or it has been destroyed deliberately and just as unlawfully.

 

This request is not being dealt with by George and the person making the request did have the common courtesy to serve notice upon the college that there might be some 'conflict of interest'. ;) I do hope that a certain department at Plymouth College of Art has not been trying to keep this matter some kind of sordid little secret and apologise on behalf of the person making the request if they have let the cat out the bag.

 

Our sources intimate that Lyons Davidson might be desperately racking up rather a large amount in further costs for Plymouth College of Art attempting to convince Devon and Cornwall Constabulary that they 'might have got it wrong'.:eek: Since Lyons Davidson spent almost the entirety of 2008 in dialogue with the police before finally being told point blank that no record of a caution exists we can only anticipate one outcome but since it was Lyons Davidson who appeared to invent the caution in the first instance on 5th September 2006 you can't blame them for trying to save their own skin in a matter which is likely to blow up spectacularly for them in any hearing.:D:D

 

Apart from that alls well and I'm filling the hours on a particularly taxing problem for another Cagger. TLD

Yes, it is Davenport-Lyons, as seen on Watchdog, who specialise in the copyright issues, and they have, as far as I know, no connection whatsoever to Lyons-Davidson, who represent Plymouth College of Art, or maybe Royal Sun Alliance, I have kind of lost the plot here. :razz:

 

Anyway, just to clarify that as far as we know, there are no connection between Davenport-Lyons and Lyons-Davidson. Incidentally, my home town is Lyon(s) in France, and there are no connections there either. :-D

 

Ive been watching this thread for ages now.. I logged on to see how it all went at the begining of sept, and Im gutted that its been put off for a couple of months.

 

but love the fact that its all going to be over very soon... Patma, TLD et all great job, and fantastic reading....

Hi Patma

 

it hasnt been an anti climax, its been compulsive reading as far as Im concerned. I still cant believe that they are still going through with this.. I suppose its past the point of no return... but still, its all the stress and the work you, fred, TLD and everyone esle have put in. I still cant believe everything Ive read.. .mind you the best bit in my mind was watching the cctv footage... that was just classic... and I had to re-read loads of posts yesterday because I thought hang on Ive missed something...

 

I still cant believe that Fred wasnt cautioned...

 

Keep going, I just looking forward to you winning this now.

Well with all the info being passed to and fro DL must now that either Plymouth College has lied to them or they are willfully going along with a flawed case, either way they are in for a hammering themselves as I cannot see how they would have a defence themselves for the SRA.

 

If they had any sense once they 'realised' not all was as it seems they would have pulled the plug on PCAD, these pages will show at a future date that they were not unaware!!!!

I agree, Yorky, however we have to remember that solicitors do rather stick together and watch one another's backs. We'll soon see how this goes hopefully though. ;)
