    • 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]
    • Pleased to hear that.   A general comment, for future readers of this thread, from my experiences of being an Executor.   Most large companies have a centralised 'Bereavement' department and I've found it's best to notify the death to them rather than the general customer service call centres. Search the company's website for 'bereavement'.   The bereavement departments are in my experience staffed by people who understand the processes when someone dies both for the relatives/executors and within their own companies and they get things sorted efficiently. (I've never had to use Vodafone's though).
    • Hi All, A simple question really. I received a NTK ticket on a lease vehicle last year from Parking Eye. As expected, they were adamant i was at fault and no payment was made. I highlighted to them that their signage no longer had planning permission and this was ignored however since ignoring this, they have gone quiet and have been for roughly 6 months now. I know they can claim for up to 6 years(??) after. As it was a lease vehicle, the RK was the lease company. PE were provided my personal address and had been communicating with me via letter there. I have now moved house and what i would like to avoid is them issuing court papers, something which i know PE like to do, me not being aware and eventually ending up with a default CCJ against my name. I appreciate i could write to them and update my address with them however i worry this may "Wake them up" a bit regarding my case. What is the best approach here?
    • Forget the warranty that means nothing and a warranty does not replace or over rule your rights under CRA amongst other consumer legislation. which state that outside of 30days but within 6mts its the sellers that is responsibility to confirm the item faulty, which has been done.   contact amazon with that proof and demand a replacement, refund or repair as they feel fit.        
    • Thanks BN   I take it this is a good sign then like you say. I certainly won’t be making any payments to them.

    • 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

Something weird happened to myself and 2 other members of my family. All three of us had Egg credit cards in our own separate names and in December 2008 our cards started to be declined by retailers. The accounts were in good standing, all balances paid in full every month via direct debit.

 

Egg customer service could not tell us what was wrong over the phone and kept saying that another department will ring us back and letters were in the post. After months of letter writing and complaints to CR department, I was finally given a phone number for their security team. I was asked by the advisor to send in 3 months worth of bank statements and payslips to re-instate security on my account. I said I was happy to provide those to them but I needed to know why they suspended my account in the first place. She replied that she was not allowed to disclose this information to me due to data protection act. Well I thought that the data about me belonged to me not her so I had every right to know

 

In the end I decided to send in a DSI Request and after a while I received this. The only thing I found is that something happened at the end of November 2008. There is a note on account “DO NOT RE-SET SECURITY; IF YOU HAVE FAIL IT AGAIN** ** IMMEDIATELY ON GTX ** REFER ALL CALLS TO X4094: DO NOT REMOVE A95 OR MAKE ANY CHANGES TO A/C

To be honest I don’t know what that means and it doesn’t tell me why this message was placed on my account. The compliant was referred to the Financial Ombudsman and they were told that the reason was in their terms & conditions

 

Condition. 19 Limiting the use of your account:

 

1. We may, without warning and without ending this agreement, cancel, or suspend the right to use the account, if we have good reason to do so. The circumstances in which we may do this include the following

 

2. If you are in breach of the Agreement

 

3. We reasonably believe you are about to breach this Agreement

 

4. If we have reason to believe you are getting into, or are in financial difficulties. We will take account of information we hold and obtain from third parties, and the way you use your Account in making this decision.

 

5. As part of our fraud prevention procedures

 

6. For legal or regulatory reasons

 

I must make it clear that I am not in any financial problems as I checked my credit rating online and its all fine. There cannot be any fraud as all the transactions that I was able to check last time in November 2008 were mine

 

Where do I go from here, I am not bothered about Egg as do not want their card anymore but I am annoyed that it has gone on for so long causing me stress and they still won’t tell me why?

 

Has anyone else come across anything similar?

Thanks
