    • Hi,   I sent the email to both my local councillor and the leader of my local council yesterday evening. I didn't receive an acknowledgement email. Do you know if I should have, as I know that if you ever email an MP you always receive a acknowledgement email?   Walshy
    • Can I ask how your taking him to court with just his a trade name ?  Yes I notice hes still trading on ebay.   
    • Very good finds indeed which help to undermine their case.. And to strengthen your case take a look  look at a thread by Tom Price also at Southend airport which is several threads below yours and you will see that he won his case on the fact that he was stopped rather than parked. On top of that he had the Airports Act  1986 to quote. The relevant section is no 63 " Byelaws are covered at S.63  (2)Any such byelaws may, in particular, include byelaws— (d)for regulating vehicular traffic anywhere within the airport, except on roads within the airport to which the road traffic enactments apply, and in particular (with that exception) for imposing speed limits on vehicles within the airport and for restricting or regulating the parking of vehicles or their use for any purpose or in any manner specified in the byelaws;" That confirms that the roads at the airport are either covered by the Road Traffic Act or Byelaws neither of which is relevant land therefore  PoFA cannot apply. And  VCS should be aware of that. Another thing is that when you posted their WS you didn't include their contract which I missed at the time. However Tom Price included it in his. And guess what-the  alleged offence they are pursuing you for, No Stopping, is not included in their contract. If you look at the end of their Service Agreement [aka contract] you will a list of contravention on Scedule 1 [7] (46) PARKING/WAITING ON A ROADWAY WHERE STOPPING IS PROHIBITTED That is the nearest to what you did. But you were not parking nor waiting -you were stopped so there was no reason to issue you with a PCN as you never broke any of their contraventions. Looks like they breached your GDPR and you should include that as it carries a hefty charge £750 is not unheard of.   Have a read of his WS too which may give you further ideas even possibly to rebut some of the points VCS  make.

    • 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 worked part time at Lloyds Pharmacy in the summer 2 years ago and quit after 3 months. I was never made to sign a contract and they always paid me 1 month in arrears. Today i got a latter from a recovery company saying that i owed £400 in salary overpayments. From what i can remember i am pretty sure they never overpaid me and if anything they didn't pay me for the last 2 weeks of work. I was wondering do I have to pay them back?? and what would happen if i didn't.

You don't have to pay anything unless they can show you positive proof that you had been over paid.


You can ignore if for a couple of letters to see if they go away. If not then write (never telephone, you need a paper trail) and ask them for proof.


If they should be able to send you anything, don't let it end there, write to the pharmacy that employed you and tell them you are being chased by a dca and would like to know why.


Don't pay anything Kamal until they prove beyond all doubt that you have been overpaid.

After writing to both Lloyds Pharmacy and the CCI Legal Services at the end of November 2008 and asking for evidence of the overpayment I finally received a reply from CCI Legal Services today(2/02/09). Again they asked for me to make £400 payment as soon as possible, attached to this letter were also my final pay slip and a photocopy of a letter from Lloyds Pharmacy they apparently sent me but i never received. Photocopy letter from Lloyds Pharmacy notifies me that they had overpaid me in my last month of work, according to their records i was due £319 and instead received £719. However in the pay slip that is also attached to this letter it shows that i was paid £319, which i was due, and nothing shows £719 they claim they paid me.


I personally think that CCI Legal Services and Lloyds pharmacy are trying to pull a quick one and trick me into paying them £400 i don't owe them, which is a disgrace for a company as big as Lloyds Pharmacy.


Any advice on what i should do next.

hi kam if you have internet banking you can check back your statements, well i can with the halifax.if not pop into your local branch and ask them.


its better to check your statements ,at least then you have proof that you only recieved £319.

then tell them to take a running jump.
