    • Obviously from Athena's point of view had you eaten enough carrots their signs would have been easily read. Your appeal would therefore be rejected. They use a kangaroo Court where you have little to no chance of winning. Even a cast iron reason for quashing your ticket does not overrule their reason -which is to rip every motorist off for as much as they can. You are dealing with crooks that pay scant notice of the Law. I would think that Lidl will cancel your ticket but if not you have a  claim against Athena for breaching your GDPR.

    • Hello,  Sorry if this is the wrong section but unsure where else to post.   I hope i dont go on too long but just trying to give as much information as i can.   I have been looking after my two Grandchildren for the past four years after their mother was unable to look after them.  This was decided by both of us and never went through the courts.  They are 16 and 17 years of age now,  so in my care since 12 and 13.   Their mother has had no involvement in their life in any way, since  i have been caring for them.     Both children had social workers due to the circumstances.   Since being in my care,  I have received  child tax credit for both. I am 77 years of age and receive a state pension   In 2019 I was struggling financially and the children needed new beds as the ones I had bough were cheap but all i could afford at the time,  so I had to ask Social work if they could help with new beds and bedding.  These were delivered and I was very grateful and this was the only help i have asked for.   They have now been accepted for college and their tax credits have stopped and they receive £30 per week EMA.  When they applied for a bursary this was declined because they were not under Kinship.  I did call the social work to see if they could give me a letter stating that they were under Non cared Kinship but the social work declined to do this and stated that there was no Social work involvement,  although they had a nominated social worker who used to visit them at school as well as supplying me with beds and bedding so to me thats involvement.   I never received any Kinship payments,  but all i am looking for is a letter saying they were Non cared for !!   Would love advice from anyone who could give me advice on this.   Thank you 
    • I suggest that you begin by sending an SAR to the bank to get the statements particularly for 2016 in order to see if there was a missed payment, if the direct debit became deactivated for any reason and also if you had the necessary balance in your account. Go from there Which bank?

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi ...

 

I am still waiting to hear from my bank. Sent letter 25.11.09 and had no reply so have just fired off a reminder.

 

Has anyone else had any kind of result since the Court decision? Or is everyone hanging back until we get new templates? Has anyone been to court in the last couple of weeks?

 

Was just wondering as the fires seem to be going out regarding charges refunds .... or are the embers still smouldering?

 

xx:grin:

I doubt very much that any bank will be paying anything out for a little while, other than hardship cases where court action should not be necessary. The banks claim victory but of course the embers as you put it are very much alive and are being fanned by various top barristers funded by a range of consumer action groups.

 

If your claim is stayed in the court system you need to contact the court to find out what they plan to do with it and when, either way each of the courts will handle it on a different time scale and you need to follow directions accordingly.

 

There is a fine balance right now between waiting to amend particulars of claim on stayed claims and the issue of the new approach anticipated by us all. Hopefully the new terminology will be issued in time to amend PoC's before the banks can push to have all of the claims dismissed under the supreme court ruling. If you haven't launched a legal claim then sit tight and use whatever template is issued to go from there. ;-)

Natwest are taking me for a mug. They threw everything in their letters to delay it as much as possible and what do you know, i haven't had a letter in weeks. Went down financial hardship route.

Good luck with that 90DC. If the bank gives you any nonsense then report straight away, banks have been giving everyone the run about on financial hardship cases for a while.

 

Show them you mean business and you'll have a better chance of getting your cash back in a reasonable amount of time :).

I was doing a financial hardhip case for a friend, took about 3 weeks with abbey.. they paid about 70% (£2000) of total claim into account day after judgement without any notice

Only direct action by the masses will work....

 

Look at all successes they have never come from negotiation!!!

Just had a reply from First Direct - they are not going to refund my bank charges but agree I may be experiencing financial difficulty so it is essential that I speak to their specialist team about this. :mad::(

Got a letter from HSBC today stating quite clearly that due to them "winning" the case against the OFT I will not be getting my charges back

 

Guess what folks, they already paid them before the court case - hahahahhaa

Lucky you! I need the new template letter as I am at a loss what to do now. They have given me 8 weeks to respond stating why I believe the charges should be refunded. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR :mad:

I am sure even you can write a letter explaining how the charges debited immediately from your account without any chance to opt in or out of their overdraft services, severely disrupted your attempt at budgetting and lead to an irreparable imbalance within the contract you had signed with the bank leading to a clear breach of trust between you and the bank :D

I would wait until after Tuesday though ;)

What do you mean by "even you" - what are you implying??? :lol: I will be waiting until Tuesday though, too much to do at the moment.

I was as close as returning the acceptance, it was received and payment was due only to be foiled by the area business manager yesterday, I will not give up as I have the 60 day offer in writing and a copy of acceptance neither state that he offer can be withdrawn without any notice.

I have received 3K in charges back from Natwest, a result it took a threatening letter regarding solicitors and a lot of arguing but eventually they paid out. Funny I have not heard from my business manager since ! This was second week of January 2010!

 

Its already been swallowed up but helped take the pressure off for a brief moment.
