    • 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]
    • 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,  
      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

Hello all. Please don't be put off by the name. I am the king of removing clamps, not putting them on! I have been clamped 8 times in 2 years and have removed the clamp each time - they don't like it up 'em!

 

Anyway. Question please. How long do the police have/take between me sending back the NIP for speeding and telling me whether they are going to fine me / take me to court / do nothing?

 

Oh, and where is the spell checker on here? I have a spelling problem and would like to correct any mistakes befroe submitting my posts. Cheers.

six months from the date of the offence to lay the information, the summons can take longer.

On the top right-hand side of the text input box, you will see an ABC, underlined by a tick. spelling.gif

Click on that. You will then be asked if you want to download the spell-check dictionary. Click yes and install it.

Having done that, just click on the icon to access the spell-checker.

 

I've been using it since the beginning of 2006 and it works well.

You also have the option of adding words to it as you go along.

Thanks for the replies. Great. So, I might have to wait 6 months to see if they will prosecute me for doing 37 in a 30.

 

Spell checker. Nope, doesn't show on my screen. I am using Firefox, so maybe that is why?

However, unless you used signed for delivery, I would be tempted to call them to be sure that your completed s.172 has been received and not got lost in the post.

 

Otherwise, you may find a summons for failing to supply arriving...

agreed. an amazing number of replies get 'lost'. send them special delivery is best, recorded delivery is rubbish.

Thanks again. Oh, I have been around long enough to know the old 'lost in the post' stunt. So, yes it was sent recorded delivery.

recorded delivery, did you check that it was actually recorded ? the recorded part of the delivery (which is the part you need) to large organisations is often ignored and its just sacks of mail and hence no proof. This includes letters delivered to court, councils, DVLA etc etc. the post office won't tell you that recorded delivery can mean the delivery is not recorded. And if it happens to you then you have in a strange way provided some evidence that your letter was not delivered (even though it probably was). Not nice !

I know what you are saying, but my obligation is to reply within the timeframe. I have done that and sent it by a trackable method in theory, although you are quiet correct. It may not be signed for even though that is what I paid for.

 

And whilst you are technically correct that it could prove it wasn't delivered, it would prove that it was sent by royal Mail within the required timeframe and I cannot imagine any magistrate would accept that you didn't under those circumstances.

 

As luck would have it, they did sign for it the day after it was sent.

service is rebuttable. that works both ways. Just posting it is not enough. all they have to do is say that it was not received. As your recorded delivery was actually recorded not an issue in this case. For others it does not always work out and they end up facing expensive S.172 charges.

Yes, service is rebuttable. However, such rebuttal must be in the form of proof rather than simple assertion - only the Magistrates can decide this matter.

 

Add to the argument that under the Postal Union, in this country mail become the property of the sender oncer committed to the postal system, then in the most part proof of posting is sufficient.

 

The recorded delivery tracking should show the letter as delivered and that will set a very high bar for any rebuttal.

becomes property of the sender ? you mean recipient ? ? They will rebut based on 'evidence' of their mail handling procedures. Recorded often isn't recorded in which case they will rebut, use Special.

Sorry yes. My bad.

 

They will rebut based on 'evidence' of their mail handling procedures. Recorded often isn't recorded in which case they will rebut, use Special.

 

The OP has evidence from the Royal Mail site that the item was tracked to delivery - even if not specifically signed for.

 

To provide evidence to support rebuttal is going to be awfully difficult given the statement of the OP and the Royal Mail tracking docket. To win any rebuttal, they are going to have to state that the Royal mail - with no interest whatsoever in the case - is lying.

 

To simply rely on their internal mail handling procedures risks making those procedures a laughing stock.
