    • Thank you very much for your letter in regard to the above mentioned shipment.  Due to the high volume of parcels coursing through the courier network each day, undergoing continuous processing and handling, certain packages may experience delays or even can get lost in the course of this journey. Please note that due to the time that has passed, this shipment has been declared as lost.  I have today processed the claim and made offers to the value of £75 as a goodwill gesture without prejudice. I do acknowledge that you have mentioned in your letter that the value was higher, however, you did not take out any protection to that amount. The protection for this shipment was £20 and we will not be increasing our goodwill offer any further.    Please log into your account online in order to accept our offer. Once accepted, our accounts department will process the claim accordingly. The claim payment will be processed and received within 7 working days.                                  In addition, a refund of the carriage fee will be processed as a separate payment and will be received within 3 working days.  If I can further assist, please feel free to contact me.   I have also just noticed that yesterday afternoon they sent me an email stating that "after my request" they have refunded the cost of shipping. I did not request the refund so will mention that in my letter as well.
    • Hi I had to leave Dubai back in 2011, during the financial crisis. And only now have I received a letter from IDRWW. Is this anything to worry about about as I have 2 years left until it’s been 15 years(statute barred in Dubai). Worried as just got a mortgage 2 years ago. Could they force me in to bankruptcy? Red lots of different threads on here. And unsure what true and what isn’t.

    • Often with the Likes of Lowells/ Overdales that 'proof' doesn't stand up to scrutiny.   Think about it like a game of poker, they want to intimidate you into folding and giving up as soon as possible, and just get you to pay up and roll over, that is their business model, make you think your cards are rubbish. What they don't expect, and their business isn't set up for it, is for a defendant to find this place and to learn that they have an amazing set of cards to play. Overdales don't have an infinite number of lawyers, paralegals etc, and the time / money to spend on expensive court cases, that they are highly likely to lose, hence how hard they will try to get you to roll over.  Even to the extent of faking documents, which they need to do because the debts that they purchased were so cheap, in the first place. Nevertheless it works in most cases, most people chicken out, when they are so close to winning, and a holding defence is like slowly showing Overdales your first card, and a marker of intention that this could get tricky for them. In fact it may be,  although by no means guaranteed that it won't even go any further than that.  Even if it does, what they send you back will almost certainly have more holes than Swiss Cheese, and if with the help you receive here, you can identify those weaknesses and get the whole thing tossed in the bin.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Yes, that was my intention.

 

That will see that you get compound restitutionary interest from the date of each penalty to the date of claim, ie the full time during which they've deprived you of YOUR money. But it takes account of all amounts refunded on a non-restitutionary basis.

Sorry for being away from here. Just had no time during hols. Now kids back in school I can focus again.

 

I haven't done anything about this.

Should I just now write a prelim letter stating I want all the charges plus CI refunded?

Hi Mum,

 

Before you send the Prelim letter, can you open the spready and let us know what the reclaim total is for charges plus interest minus the refunded amounts.

Finally sitting down to tackle Woolwich properly.

Sorry Slick for the 3m delay in answering :-/

 

 

The current spreadsheet for Woolwich late payment charge reclaim, including the reimbursed charges deducted:

using the highest % of 8.39% totals £9.6k

using the midpoint % of 6.9% totals £8.7k

 

 

I have not yet sent a letter to Woolwich.

Should I now send them a Prelim ?

Hi Mum,

 

I suggest you use the higher figure of 8.39% which keeps the claim under £10K and therefore on the Small Claims Track.

 

You need to send Woolwich/Barcalys a Prelim Claim letter with the spready.

Can I check how the court fee alters the total figure please.

 

How do the courts assess the total for how much court fee you pay?

 

Do they look at the total before or after the court fee is added??

 

It could make a big difference in how much fee to pay.

 

Also - as I am making a claim for charges - do the moderators here think it best to switch this thread to Barclays / Woolwich forums?

Another question:

The mortgage account was closed a few months back.

When it closed does my claim for CI also stop on the same day? And instead I charge statutory interest of 8%, from the day after it closed to now, on the different stat int spreadsheet? Or am I getting confused?

I am claiming charges & CI going back more than 10 years.

Hi Mum,

 

Personally, I think you should claim CI up to the date the claim is issued. Claim 8% s.69 Stat'y Int't at the daily rate of £x.xxp per day from date of claim until settlement.

 

You've been deprived of your money and continue to be deprived. The bank has continued to benefit from using your money to lend profitably to others.

 

I answered your Q about court fees on your other thread.

 

Thread can be moved to Barclays forum if you want (it'll get more views there than in the Woolwich forum). Let me know.

PS

Where do I send my Prelim letter??!!

 

 

I was dealing with Woolwich BTL team which was based in Leeds area.

Or should I send it to Barclays head office in London (Canary wharf)? and address it Barclays Plc t/a Woolwich...

Hi Mum,

 

Why not start a new thread for the claim in the Barclays forum, with a link to this thread for info.

 

A new thread for the next stage means that you can lose the 100+ posts from here and start with a summary of relevant points.

 

The Prelim will go to Barclays London HQ addressed to Barclays Bank PLC t/a Woolwich.

HI

I have another thread live on the mortgages section: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?429557-Late-payment-charges-made-mortgage-in-arrears

 

 

I'm starting a fresh thread so there are less pages to read through.

In essence Woolwich gave me a penalty charge - this then had a knock on effect every month. Every month the mortgage got paid but their penalty meant the balance was always in arrears - which meant W kept giving me more and more penalties. I couldn't work out why they considered me in arrears as I thought I was always making the right payments. It actually took few years to get to the bottom of it all as they failed to reply to my letters and life got busy so I forgot to chase. It was only on threat of repossession that I really dug deep and made the discoveries.

 

 

Anyway - moving on....

I re-mortgaged last year with a different lender.

Now I want to make a claim for all the penalty charges Woolwich imposed on me, during the tern, plus Compound Interest and maybe - if it is possible - compensation too...???

 

 

I sat down and looked at all the statements and I worked out there were many £000s of charges !! Plus CI this makes a very big claim...

I need to act fairly quickly to keep my claim in small claims track. If I leave it more than a few more months the CI will raise the level to above the small claims limit.

 

 

I have had a look at some of the Prelim letters. I have used some already on other accounts. But as this is a (btl) mortgage account is there a different law that governs reclaims? Most of the letters I have seen seem to refer to a 2006 law concerning credit cards? Or is it just a question of altering the words?

 

 

Also - I currently have a claim against Bcard. Will the same head office team potentially deal with the W mortgage claim too? Or should I wait for the 1st to be dealt with before claiming on W?

Hi Mum,

 

Adapt the letter to refer to this being a mgge a/c as the principles involved are the same.

 

Post a draft here if you want.

 

From what you say, starting the claim sooner rather than later will be best.

It ended up being quite a lot of money that I am claiming...

I suspect the letter opener will get quite a shock...

 

 

I can never get the dates right - is it 14 days from receipt? or 14 business days from receipt? that they have to respond to my letter?

 

 

Also - it doesn't matter that the account is closed does it?

The Creditor should acknowledge receipt of your letter within 14 days and then give you a full reply within a reasonable time.

Hi Mum,

 

If you threaten legal action, send the LBA 14 (normal) days after the Prelim Letter.

 

Any reply will say nothing that will satisfy the claim you're making.

Barc have sent a text message. Saying they are looking into my complaint....

 

 

I assume they are referring to the prelim letter I wrote asking them to repay penalty charges and CI, rather than the Court claim I have against Barclaycard!!

 

 

Are they allowed to contact me by phone/text?

I would have assumed a proper letter response....

Ignore this contact and focus on the claim you're making, sticking to your timescales.
