    • Bankfodder thanks for your help and yes i am about 90 miles from the garage i have requested the advert from autotrader  waiting for that back.  the dealer is a garage and taxi /minibus firm with a big unit i have taken screen shots of the stock and sales on ebay  and cars for sale on autotrader i have a reciept for my purchase signed etc  so yes i know 30 days is up but like you said its the enforcing it may be an issue but ill take it up to the highcourt as seen on tv lol 
    • Letter said 10 going across company, 2 from cad team. Only 2 have been scored. Essentially I would have stayed but now my position is untenable I feel, how could I go back after being mistreated like this. So yes, I want more compensation because its been an unfair process.    We don't have a union. 
    • So your desired outcome is "going, but more money"?   How many people are leaving in total? Has a union or reps agreed the redundancy terms?
    • I can certainly see why your son booked there.  The place has rave reviews from previous guests.  I'm surprised they are being so unprofessional with your son.   On their page under "Questions" they've written   Hi there! On the booking listing on the search page it says free cancellation, however when I go to book it says non refundable. Please can you confirm whether there is free cancellation on this for November bookings? Thanks!   Hello, Our cancellation policy is free cancellation upto 60 days before arrival. However if White Cross Bay has to close due to a second lockdown, we will re schedule your stay or offer a full refund.   I would suggest your son write to them through Booking.com's internal messaging system (Bookings > Owls House > Contact the property) and if they don't reply within 48 hours demand that Booking.com intervene.    N.B.  After a certain amount of time and/or a certain amount of bookings this internal messaging system ceases to work for old bookings so it might fail, but, hey, it's worth a try, it'll only take 10 minutes..   On their COVID Info. page Booking.com go on about bookings after 6 April, basically saying that after that date everyone knows about COVID and that travelling is a risk so it's a good idea to book places that offer free cancellation.  However, before that date - which would apply to your son - I'm pretty sure they had some scheme where you could cancel even if not normally allowed.  Sorry to be vague, but again this is worth looking into.   I suggest these things on a "belt & braces" basis. Obviously keep fighting to get the money back through the Halifax as others have suggested!
    • Typical defence that you would expect in response...reads rather like a witness statement than a defence.   Be wary of point 25 .....are you currently indebted to the agreement ?.....they are relying on CPR 16.6 to use a set off defence.   Andy

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

I've heard quite a few worrying stories concerning sellers on eBay and associated problems with PayPal.

 

I see the Paypal company has its registered office in Luxemburg so I assume this would mean if it came to trying to issue a claim in the County Court this may complicate matters.

 

Say I sell something and they buyer pays through Paypal, I then withdraw the money into my current account. I now have the money. I understand Paypal can request money back from me some weeks after the initial transaction if the buyer makes a dispute; i.e goods not as described.

 

I imagine Paypal would debit the money from my current account using the direct debit I have set up.

 

If the item I sold was 'as described' in my opinion, could I not tell the bank to reverse any direct debit under the direct debit guarantee?

 

 

The onus would then be on Paypal to initiate legal proceedings against me in the UK, which I could submit a defence for.

 

Is this a valid action plan for a honest grievence?

Hope this post is allowed.

 

Of course - just the answer would be different if you had a particular issue... ;)

 

There is remit to issue proceedings in a County Court for a company that is outside of the jurisdiction of that Court within Civil Procedure Rules.

 

As an example, RBS are based in Edinburgh, but claims can be issued against them in England with the Courts permission providing the criteria within CPR is met.

 

I don't believe this would extend to PayPal in Lux, though.

Well, I've removed my debit card details from my Paypal account, so only my direct debit exists now.

 

Reading several posts, it does appear the paypal terms and conditions are stacked up in weight of the buyer.

You can cancel the DD with your Bank and that will unlink your Bank Account from your PP account

Hi

 

My thinking is that because the guarntee the banks offer with direct debit, even if I found myself in what I considered an 'unjust' situation where Paypal found in a buyers favour and took the money from my bank by direct debit - I could easily get the payment reversed through my bank.

 

This would place the onus on Paypal to take legal action against me which I could then defend in my local county court.

 

I as under the impression that debit / credit cards given as a contionous authority were a lot harder to cancel / retract.

 

I'm not looking to cause trouble, I just want to make sure my interests are best looked after.

I don't think they do reclaim the amount from your Bank - they "minus" it from your PP account, meaning you can't use it until the account has been funded with that amount.

 

I'm not sure what happens if you don't do that, though.

 

You could ask your Bank to cancel your Debit/Credit Cards, if you think the details could be abused without your authorisation ;)

Always happy to help where I can!

The trouble is - you either work within the scheme or you do not. If you sell an item, you are imlicitly agreeing for them to be the arbiter of the dispute, therefore it could be construed as bad faith to pursue your funds processor to get funds back (reasons being irrelevant). The secret would be not to permit a PP purchase or become your on CC merchant and you decide if/when to refund.

 

Having used their services as botrh a buyer and a seller, I have never had a reversal (lucky?) but instigated 5, four of which the sellers shouted blue murder, and the 5th agreed he'd not sent the goods and had a variety of reasons for doing so. So, it would appear that for any transaction to work, you need integrity on both sides, as it becomes a minefield if there isn't.

 

In a case that happened to me last year, I paid a seller £9.50 for 'secure next day delivery' of a mobile phone. It never arrived, and it transpired he had sent it by 1st Class Recorded, which has a compensation limit of £33. He was adamant as he had a stamped tracking number, his onligation to me ended. My contention was I needed to recieve the goods, and I got nothing. PP found in my favour, and the funds were reversed, but I only got 95% as their fees had taken the rest, but I was as 'happy' as I could be.

 

Now, what if YOU were the seller?

 

I stopped short of saying that if he charged me £9.50 for postaage, then sent it for £2.40 (or whatever) then I was hardly likely to be sympathetic as he was already ripping me off on the postage.

Can they 'disclaim' your right to seek redress through the courts just because of what Paypal write in their terms and conditions?

 

A lot of the dilemas I have read appear very unfair to sellers in some cases. (for example in one case, a seller is sent an empty packet by recorded delivery. Paypal washed their hands of this saying the buyer had complied with their requirements for a payment reversal).

 

I can imagine in such situations, I'd prefer a judge to make their own mind up 'on the balance of probabilities' rather than a Paypal member of staff.

No issue of 'disclaim' - you have every right to pursue them as you think fit - much in the same way a theif employed by Royal Mail lifted tickets worth £200 for an envelope and put the remainder into a 'found in the mail' bag. I lost, because the pulled out an Act of Parliament that said under the Postal Services Act 2000, they were specifically excluded from liability, and the judge was forced to agree.

 

In your PayPal issue, it would all hinge on whether a judge agreed to uphold their T&C's as something you willingly agreed to, and lost your claim (and the additional costs of bringing the action) because the agreement WAS legally binging.

 

It's Russian Roulette out there!

just a small note on this i used a going places visa card to register as a seller so if there was any problems there would be no come back as previously two expensive dresses went missing in transit and rm and paypal even though i had proof of postage it doesnt mean jack even though buyer hadnt paid for special delivery just normal postage i did it for my own peace of mind paypal still opted in buyers favour so a £160 dress and £80 actual ebay price down argh

 

oh and ive been stung as a buyer too i paid 250 via paypal id been withdrawing money for months out my bank account toopping up my paypal account for crimbo for a mobile phone that never turned up by the time they agreed enough time had passed the seller had cleared their account and all i got back was £105, same crimbo my mum got stung £360 for an xbox package she got back the full amount difference being her credit card picked up the shortfall straight onto her card and they took to chasing paypal/whoever its a risky game and not as safe as they make out, even though i use my paypal account for more than just ebay

Two points: Why should the BUYER have to pay when they never recieved the goods you sent? The responsibility to get the item remains with the seller - it doesn't matter what they paid for, your shipping charge needs to reflect the cost of claiming for loss, it is for YOUR protection, not theirs so you need to budget accordingly when listing the item. This isn't rocket science, it is explained in many places on the site.

 

Sellers often attempt to say in listings that they are not responsible, but as this is contrary to the actual rules, it can be safely ignored.

I sold some Amazon vouchers on ebay and was paid via paypal, the vouchers were electronic so once they were paid for I just emailed the code to the buyers.

However one of the buyers was a [EDIT] and used chargeback to reclaim the cost, I sent paypal screenshots of the email I sent with the code and of his ebay rating showing that he had done this to lots of people.

 

His card company found in his favour and as I had already been paid and my paypal balance was zero paypal asked me for the £50 back. I refused and have just received a letter from a debt recovery agency called intum justitia for the £50, do I have to pay this?

There's always a risk when accepting PayPal for transactions of 'virtual' goods. You'll need to refer to PayPal's T&C's which you agreed to aide y - and as they are in the position to refund the (dishonest) buyer, you are left to make restitution to PayPal.

 

Whether you wish to pay PayPal back, only you can decide - I'm not aware of any sanctions they can impose against you (other than stopping you using their service again) as for small amounts, formal court action is unlikely.

Intrum Justitia are toothless lol Formal court action is not only unlikely - it is well beyond the ability of these idiots. My advice, if you have done nothing wrong then why should you pay. I managed to get shot of Intrum Justitia for my girlfriend (in a similar position). Only took two letters - with a bit of knowledge you can tangle them up like you wouldn't believe. Disregard any threats they make, it's all hot air and meaningless. Also, don't fall for the old we'll send someone round to see you - more nonsense. Firstly, such action would cost a dam lot more than the amount they are trying to recover; secondly - they have no legal right to visit you (only an implied right under common law - like the posty or milk man).

 

If you want the letters I used for my gf let me know and you can have them to use yourself. I found them to be very effective.

 

All the best,

A1, THE BUILDING

THE ROAD

THE TOWN

THE COUNTY

THE POSTCODE

REFERENCE: 000000000A

I DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE ANY DEBT TO INTRUM JUSTITIA OR YOU CLIENT PAYPAL

Dear Sir or Madam

I am writing in response to correspondence received from you on the 01st January 2009 (dated 01st January 2009).

I have received an invoice from you for the amount of £00.00 for an alleged debt you claim I have with your client PAYPAL. I can advise that I do not acknowledge any debt to either Intrum Justitia or your client PAYPAL.

As you advise in your correspondence that you have commenced formal debt recovery action against me I am formally requesting, pursuant to s.77/78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974, that you provide me with a true copy of the credit agreement on which you are seeking to enforce the alleged debt. In addition, I am also requesting a statement of account for the alleged debt.

In the case that Intrum Justitia are not the creditor, I draw your attention to the fact that s.175 of the CCA 1974 applies in the case of a simple assignment, and places a duty upon you to pass this request to the creditor. In the case of an absolute assignment, you are a creditor as defined by s.189. If you contend that you purchased the rights but not the duties of any agreement, you are reminded that s.189 of the Act is clear that an assignment is of both rights and duties.

 

Your attention is also drawn to ss.5(2), 3(b),6 and 7 of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPUTR).

 

I enclose a postal order in the sum of £1.00, which is the statutory fee. Please note that these funds are not to be used for any other purpose.

 

If you are unable to comply fully and properly with this request, you should confirm this in writing at the earliest opportunity, and certainly within the statutory time limit for compliance, and return the fee.

Please also note that any future communication must be by written letter and addressed to me only at the above address. On the occasion that you continue to telephone me, any calls will be documented and answered by my representative.

Yours Sincerely

** Do not sign your name – debt collectors may use this to falsify your signature **

Hi, this is the first letter we sent, it is pretty much a slightly adapted version of a template from another CAG Member. The first thing I will point out is that you are requesting a copy of the CCA, except there is no CCA - PayPal are not regulated by the consumer credit act and you did not sign a credit agreement. They will write to you and tell you this after about a week. At which point, you then write back requesting a notice of assignment legally allowing them to collect the debt - by this point they are getting confused lol. Remember, you are not dealing with smart people here. They write back muttering something about advising them of any dispute - just deny that there is a dispute and request the notice of assignment again. They will then write back and say they have closed their file - why have they done this - it's simple, because you are making them run round like headless chickens they are allocating too much resource to what is likely to be a very small debt. After this, you should never here another peep from them. I cannot guarantee this will work but I found it very effective lol. Laugh at their antics, enjoy confusing them and it will all be over with about three letters - job done :).

 

All the best,

My problem with paypal is they're not regulated by ANY government body that I know of, yet they offer financial products like money transfer and debit cards. Can you complain to the FOS about them?

If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)

You can complain to the Financial Ombudsman Service, but they are as much use as a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest.

 

This is all I got back from Consumer Direct:

 

I have reviewed your case and it appears that your enquiry falls outside the remit of advice offered by Consumer Direct. I have checked the Financial Services Authority Register and Paypal is not registered with the UK it is EEA registered. As such, you can contact the UK European Consumer Centre for further advice on 08456 04 05 03 or ecc@tsi.org.uk.

Please note that in offering this advice, Consumer Direct Wales wishes to make it clear that it is based on the evidence to hand on the above date and is subject to revision or amendment in the light of further evidence. Only the courts can interpret statutory legislation with any authority.

 

If you need any further advice then please contact us on 08454 040506 or alternatively we offer a Welsh line on 08454 040505

Probably not much help either, but there you go.

Sent the template letter off to IJ got a letter back apologising and saying the account had been closed.

 

I've now got a letter from EOS for the same debt, are paypal allowed to just keep passing the debt and should I just send the same template to them?
