    • Well, you've highlighted the problem yourself, whatever you decide will carry some risk.   However, I would think the risk of a default judgement & CCJ is to be avoided at all costs and the least worse thing would be to write them a two-line letter with their reference number and your new address.   As usual, any details you can give us on the forum sticky would be useful for the future      
    • That the value I paid for.. 250..  The cctv footage it's archived. 2 of them.. 
    • No copy of signature.. Just a name "jolly"... On tracking no proof of signature 
    • Thanks for the message that is what I thought. In the mean time they have sent another message, below, I can’t follow up with Amazon until 48 hours. But I will go armed.    “Your return period is 30 days with ourselves and then you are covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.”    
    • OK, I found the letter I was looking for:     Dear Sir/Madam,   Reference: [order number]   On [date], I placed an order for a [item] and it was delivered by you on [date].   I have discovered that the [item] has the following problem: [give details].   The Consumer Rights Act 2015 makes it an implied term of the contract that goods be as described, of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.    Any returns policy that says I have to cover the cost of returning items must only relate to the situation where I change my mind about the item ordered and not where there is a problem with the item.    I should not lose out financially as a result of your breach of contract and accordingly all costs of returning the item should be met by you.    I also require you to confirm you will arrange for [the item] to be collected.   I look forward to hearing from you.   Yours faithfully, [Your name]

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

Hi all,

Im new today and was hoping someone could advise me a little of one of those life's experiences, never again! I apologise for the length of this message, but i hope somebody can help.

I purchased a car from Renault for £11,133 (cash price) in May 2005, I had to use British Car Credit, due to so much negative equity in the vehicle I was exchanging, funny enough it was a Renault.


I had to take out 2 loans with them? Because the maximum they would lend at the time was £10k (I found this hard to believe at the time, but I continued). So I had a balance payable of £15450 (including all the charges etc) meaning a monthly payment of £259 per month for 60 months. I also had to take a loan out for £1,260 with them with a monthly payment of £21 per month for 60 months.


My payments were also increased by them adding £30.24 for Credit Protection Insurance per month, making the payments to £289 per month. I had no idea until recently that I had been paying this.


It’s always bugged me so much, as I never felt happy with it. Luckily I purchased a car from Mercedes in 2006 and got rid of the whole thing.


However, what im unsure of is that is it strange to have 2 agreements? I asked for a settlement figure and was told in February 2006 £15419.72 was the balance outstanding (originally it was £15,450) therefore no were taken into consideration, they stated at today’s date (February 2006) £9,306.66 was the settlement figure, assuming last payment of £289 was received (this included £30.24 credit protection insurance), strange after looking at it just now! When the amount payable originally was £15450, also why would a settlement figure include insurance?


Likewise for the second loan amount payable originally was £1260, and February 2006 the balance outstanding at today’s date was £1,092 not all payments were taken into consideration and the settlement figure being £750.61


I had never missed any payments, so they couldn’t say it was charges, and still have my credit file for that time to prove this.


One more thing, when I agreed to the finance they faxed an agreement to me at work and I had to sign it and fax it back, just thinking now, should they have an original copy of my signature, along with a proper agreement, rather than faxed copies. The only copy I have is very hard to read, and does not have any agreement number on, just a proposal number.


Please help, ive no idea now if this agreement was really enforceable, and if the Credit Protection Insurance that was never discussed with me. I only have a faxed copy of the main loan and not of the other, I have asked them for a copy of the second loan, a week ago, I have not heard anything yet and they have not cashed the £1.


I want to pass this to a solicitor to have a look and, because I strongly feel that the settlement figures were incorrect, yes I should have notice this at that time. But imp wary of whom to contact in case they charge extortionate fees.


Emma ;)
