    • Hi all,   It's been a while since I last posted.   We were due to fly LHR - Mex - Lap (return) with AeroMexico on May 2nd.   The flights were booked with Netflights (owned by dnata).   We have requested a refund from Netflights who have stated they will only issue our refund when (and if) they receive a refund from AeroMexico. 😡   Can anybody tell me who my contract of sale is with, Netflights or the airline?   Is this even relevant?    Who should be refunding me?   Thank you for any help.   Regards.
    • All Talk Talk Direct debits/standing orders, etc were all cancelled correctly and set up for BT. Talk Talk took the money from my debit card details which they had retained. I have now blocked this too. I just want my money back!
    • On the basis it was a direct debit from the bank. Why did you not use the DD guarantee and insist the bank refunds the money.     
    • Basically i can claim for my excess and loss of earnings as i was self employed and cost for hire of van, solicitors have asked for uninsured losses, if lossess are not included in claim i cant recover them at later date the letter states.  
    • Hi All,   On 26th May this year I called my broadband/phone service provider, Talk Talk, to inform them that I would be leaving them and moving to BT at the end of the month.  My contract with Talk Talk had officially ended back in October 2019 and I was just paying them on a monthly basis for continued service. I was advised that I did not need to do anything, as arrangements would be made on my behalf to keep my existing number etc between Talk Talk and BT.  I began my contract with BT on 1st June.  I cancelled my bank payment arrangements to Talk Talk and set up new ones for BT. I then received a bill from Talk Talk for June's monthly charges, which I ignored as I was no longer a customer, I owed them nothing, and they were not providing me with any kind of service. I then received a second bill from Talk Talk for July's monthly charges. I called Talk Talk to explain their error but they insisted that I was still a customer using their services.  This was despite me proving that I have been a BT customer for the past two months and paying BT for services that Talk Talk are claiming to be theirs. Talk Talk then took £60.39 from my bank account on 2nd August, despite having no authority or consent from me to do so.  I complained to my bank and they explained that utility companies hold on to customers payment details (despite GDPR) and this practice is common.  I have now instructed my bank to refuse any further payments to Talk Talk, by any means!. I phoned Talk Talk to complain and insist they repaid my money immediately as it had been obtained fraudulently and they are not providing any service to me anymore.  The adviser couldn't help much, but promised me a call from a manager later in the week.  The call never materialised. I called Talk Talk myself today, and after nearly four hours of phone calls, being put on hold, transferred, being made promises and making more calls, I have got nowhere. One manager did offer a token £30 payment which I obviously turned down.  I eventually hung up after being put on hold for over 20 minutes during a call lasting over an hour. These people are ignorant at best and impossible to deal with. Please could someone advise me on how to get my £60.39 back from these people?

    • 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,

Here we go again!

On behalf of my wife I am starting this thread.

I am posting all the documents I have to date so far.

This is the same as my first CL Finance case -

Started off with GE Money,

transferred to Viking without Notice,

was invisibly transferred to CL Finance,

Howard Cohen Solicitors sent a notice of assigned coupled with the Court claim in the one letter!

Default Notice is invalid.

CCA Incomplete in so far as they have not sent the original T's&C's going by my case #4 if they were to send them they would not be from the original document anyway

Enjoy!

 

 

As usual...any advice is welcome :)

Hi All

I have sent Cohens a CPR Request asking for CCA, DN etc and they have replied today saying that as this is a small claim they are under no obligation to provide the requested information.

They reckon the POC are enough to defend against!!!!!

 

Umm... I think I know the answer to the question, but can someone just confirm that regardless of the type of claim, they need to provide us with the information requested?

 

I assume if I am correct that this wil be quite a short defence?

The same response was sent for my claim number 6 aswell.

I have been checking other threads and it seems this is a standard response from these monkeys.

I have taken a copy of defence submitted by CCM (hope you dont mind CCM) for practically the same situation!!

I will wait and see what happens :)

 

By the way, in case anyone is confused by two threads practically the same... My wife and I have 2 cases which are also practically the same...these are our 5th and 6th cases... so hope that explains that!

WON!!!!

Bad day for Howard Cohen and CL Finance by the looks of it :)

 

Two of my wifes cases were consolidated and heard at the same time.

The same story for both...

 

They did not turn up at all!!

Judge saw the agreements were unenforceable... No Prescribed terms on one and some missing on the other...

No Default Notice

No Termination notice

Wrong account numbers on each of the agreements

 

In fact the judge found it hard to not laugh at the claim...he and we were smiling throughout :)

 

So ironically...they owe us £8.50 in costs :) pity we didnt keep all those receipts lol

 

We were going to ask for a debenhams voucher instead but thought that may be pushing it!!!

 

Howard Cohen i have to say are the worst solicitors I have ever come across...even the Judge found it hard to believe they could be so stupid :)

 

Can any of the site team change the status to WON please?

 

Many thanks to all who helped and advised..

Thank you all...

They only had the agreements and some account statements...thats it. They had a badly written witness statement and that was all.

 

The costs...well to be honest I am not bothered really....we got 40p per mile and £5 car parking :) thats plenty...these parasites are gone...thats enough for us :)

Well done.

However, just a small word of warning. HC/CL Finance discontinued a claim against me in October. Santander have "Bought" it back & are phoning me everyday. No NOA. Also the account has increased by £800, HC's costs. They haven't got a clue why HC discontinued, & have no knowledge that they have already tried to litigate.

I've read somewhere on the forum, that if a case has gone to court & won, which yours did you can apply to the courts, or ask the judge to prevent them from passing it to someone else.In effect, so you don't have to go through the whole thing again.

Something you might want to look into.

 

Howard Cohen/GE Money discontinue claim
