    • 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..

    • 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

]I wonder if you could point me in the direction of the law on ownership of a vehicle. I am the owner of a car (bought and paid for by myself) – I registered the car in the name of my wife as she already had insurance (which I am also on). Last year a parking fine was incurred and my wife has an ongoing dispute with the council that issued it. In the meantime bailiffs arrived after sending a letter and tried to take the car away. When I showed them the receipt and warranty in my name they unclamped the car and said they would come back to take something else if my wife didn’t pay £700. A few weeks later two of their colleagues arrived at 04.15 in the morning and clamped my car. They didn’t leave a contact number but reappeared at 07.45 to tow the car away. I showed them my receipts and warranty but they said that because my wife is the registered keeper they were going to assume the car belonged to her even though I was showing them proof of purchase and the warranty which belongs to me. I also showed this to the police and they said there was nothing they could do – in fact they handcuffed me and forced me to leave my car. They also used physical force to move my wife who was holding our 5 month old baby before asking her to step away from the car – all so that the bailiffs could take a vehicle that does not belong to my wife. In the end I was forced to pay £800 or lose the car. The bailiff then refused to accept payment unless in cash. He refused to allow us time to go to a cash machine. The police officer tried to reason with him but he said that because I had inconvenienced him he would only accept cash. The police officer insisted to the bailiff on driving me to the bank to get the money. This has meant that I have used all my cash and has left my family without any money as I would have paid by credit card.Is this legal and correct procedure?Do I now have to go through small claims court to get my money back?I hope you can help.

Forgot to mention - it is JBW. I have paid them £700 before for an alleged parking offence (they were very intimidating and my wife was 8 months pregnant and terrified to lose the car) and then claimed it back from the council - do I do the same again - they say I have to go to court to prove ownership of the car.I

Which local authority does this relate to?

Thankyou for contacting me tomtubby.

The bailiffs work for JBW and on the behalf of Southwark Council.

I noticed on your website that bailiffs cannot take a car not belonging to the person being fined and that the onus was on my wife to prove she didn't own the car.Prior to this visit I had sent an email to JBW telling them very clearly that I was the legal owner of the car and had the documentation to prove it.They did not reply but I have a receipt for the email to prove they received it.

Regarding the website tomtubby - interestingly, my wife quoted the Human Rights Act regarding property to one of the bailiffs - he just pulled a face and shrugged....and the police payed no attention whatsoever.

talk about scare tactics

 

quote

 

“The council has also applied for warrants for the arrest of some of the borough's largest debtors. These will be heard in court and could carry a prison sentence of up to three months.

 

maybe more complaints to the MOJ should be on the way
