    • Thanks for this update. Obviously I'm very pleased that your guitar has been delivered and that you don't have to take any further action about this. On the other hand, I'm slightly disappointed because I was hoping that this might be an opportunity to deliver a serious slap against Hermes. Anyway, who knows why it happened like this – but the most important thing is that the item has been delivered and you're not out of pocket – and also probably you have learned a good lesson – don't use Hermes – or Packlink. It's a recipe for trouble.

    • I have debts of my own and will sort another advice separate for them as now I’m not working and a full time carer for wife & daughter I’m struggling to pay them so will want advice on letters to send them for reduced payments etc But for now I need to know what to do about PayPal as its really making me worry and is making me ill but ive got to try be strong and put on brave face for wife & daughter I dont want them picking up on something is wrong & worrying me
    • Help & Advice wanted on PayPal debt please I had someone staying with me for a while before they moved away and they had access to my PayPal account and was buying a few things and giving me the money no problem but then unknown to me until it was to late they had a gambling problem also and last off used my PayPal to fund online gambling . They ended up using £5,000 through PayPal and the first I knew was when I went to do some online banking and seen £1200 went out of my bank for PayPal so I looked straightaway and stopped / cancelled my bank letting PayPal take from my account . Then I logged on to PayPal and seen transactions 1 after another this going to total the £5,000 so I unlinked my bank & cards from PayPal account . Then nearly 2 weeks after I started getting emails and messages saying my account was in negative balance for £3,800 because they already had the £1200 . I’m in a bit of debt anyway and struggling so for this to happen left me feeling very ill to find they have spent thousands and left me without anything no money to live on or feed family even at the time as that £1200 that was took out of my account was all I had, I’m very annoyed and feeling very mad and very ill. Ive no idea how I can put this right as got no work no money because My wife got struck down with illness and disabled and I also have special needs daughter so I’m now a full time carer for both wife and daughter . I need to sort this but dont know how or best way to go about it. Ive had emails from PayPal and ive replied and explained plus went on live chat etc and asked for it to be logged and for them to please come to some payment agreement even though I cant afford it I know I got to put things right somehow but had no joy in chat and was just told pay into PayPal what I owe. So again I get emails and I reply but not getting any reply back to my emails . Ive not told my ill disabled wife about this right now as it would push her over the top and make her more ill thinking about it and its her Nephew to top things off so I know it would destroy her . Ive tried talking to someone with PayPal in live chat etc and emails as said asked if it can be logged showing ive been in touch regarding this matter and need to try sort it and also asked for them to contact me in writing so hopefully we can come to some sort of agreement to put this right but so far its been about 31 days now since account been in negative and ive had no phone calls or letters from them yet So what can I do and whats best way to deal with this I’m trying to pursue the person for these funds as we speak but know I’m not going to get anywhere

    • 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 guys,

 

Im new to this site and really need some advice asap.

 

The situation is as follows:

 

Myself and my partner recently bought a car from 'the largest dealership in the uk' (used cars). We decided upon a BMW 3 series at a price of £8,500. We put down £1500 as a deposit and financed the rest.

 

I was initially declined by a bank for the finance. The company then approached Santander....it took a day or so, however was then approved. We were called to say that finance had been agreed and that we needed to collect the car (60 miles away). So we caught a train to collect the car 3 days later. I signed the necessary credit agreement, checked the figures etc....all looked fine. I then signed the logbook, took the keys, paid the £1500 deposit and was on my way.

 

The logbook is now in my posession and I am currently in France enjoying a family holiday. I have been constantly called by a number which turned out to be the dealership (2 weeks on). They are now saying that they made a mistake with the finance and that apparantly it was subject to me paying off my other car finance on another vehicle (with the same finance company). However, the dealer didnt pick up on this and neither did I. Apparently it was in the small SMALL print. (clever!). So....the situation is this, the lender has since declined the finance, I have not yet made a payment, I have the car, I am in france and the car is fully in my name and not subject to a finance agreement.

 

The dealership have asked me to go back in there and that they have sorted out further (cheaper) finance with another company and that they have saved me lots of money etc. But what are my rights as a consumer? Do I have to do this? Is the car now mine?? Do they have a leg to stand on? They have also further credit searched me without my approval.

 

How can I proceed with this and what are my rights? Any help is much appreciated.

they are a bucket of tosh I have to admit. Im a mortgage adviser and have to put cases with Abbey national, they are rediculously rubbish!

 

Bring back Bank of scotland car finance, you knew where you stood with them.

 

But look on the brightside....it could mean a free car! :D

It was human error, something we all make at sometime. To keep the car will be theft and you can bet your life there will be a summons on your dorrstop if you don't return it or sign for the other finance.

 

The logbook with your name on does not make you the owner, only the registered keeper, a receipt would make you the owner.

Thats the funny part, we have a receipt showing the full amount together with deposit has been settled and paid.

 

All I know is if the boot was on the other foot and it was my human error, my car would be re-posessed and I would be left with a default or CCJ.

 

Im simply asking advice not criminal backing :rolleyes:

You were asking opinions of if you could now claim the car:

 

The dealership have asked me to go back in there and that they have sorted out further (cheaper) finance with another company and that they have saved me lots of money etc. But what are my rights as a consumer? Do I have to do this? Is the car now mine?? Do they have a leg to stand on?

 

I would say no and I believe any court would find the same as well.

So the advice about criminal backing is just that: sound advice.

 

You can :rolleyes: all you like, but the fact remains that if they take you to court (and they will), they'll win, and you'll end up car-less, money-less, with a CCJ and considerable fees on top (over £5k, so won't be small claims, so they can claim their legal fees etc... from you).

 

You can ignore the advice on here, but if you only wanted for someone to say "well done, mate, the car is yours" it's not going to happen. Because that would be doing you a great disservice, since that's simply not true.

 

Do yourself a favour, and get it sorted as soon as you get back. ;-)

Sounds like sound advice to me, that will b e my plan. Worst case, we have cheaper finance than previously! Im sure they can throw in a free warranty to cover my expenses of travelling back there etc.

 

Thank you for the help / banter :cool:
