    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

HAhahA..gibbering now. :D

 

Credit to you too Bluedo for flagging up the article that first set me off on the trail here. Two heads are better than one...or should that be many heads as everyone here who has contributed useful stuff and dug up info/evidence on all of this has helped make this a good case for us all.

HURRAH! All for one and one for all! :grin::grin::grin:

Hi Dale lincs,

Yes found this for you from face book Don't know how they're getting on cos I'm not a member but if you google

Advent Legal action facebook there are links to see a bit

 

Information

Category:

Student Groups - General

Description:

Anyone else been conned by computeach? This forum are for those of us who want to join together and fight for our money back! I am determined to get yours and my money back. Please join the group and publicise it for the common cause of getting a refund against these big and powerful companies?

 

The point of this group is so that we can complain together against this cheating organisation. We will write to trading standards as a team and write to computeach themselves as a team. Hopefully our combined strength will pressure them into refunding our monies. Once every member of this group has had their monies refunded i will then close this group. (read less)

It was a good find and we can make a difference I would hope that the whole system of Training providers gets a shake up and this gross overcharging and support from imo less than reputable funders should be stopped "forthwith" :D

I'm getting hang of the jargon.:D

Thanks too for everyone that is contributing ideas and thoughts here keep it going.

Bet you never got stopped sending emails before:lol: they'll be in shock:eek:

If this does go as far as court, Bluedo, then I'll have me best pants on so I can flash me 'fuzzbutt' at the Barclays dudes and say..."Kiss that" on behalf of us all.

 

We will win!!! :lol:

Hi Yasmin,Thanks,

It's just that Dale is a Computeach student and I came across a link in google for facebook legal action against computeach. If he was on that it may give some info as well as being here. But funny enough it was attached to the Advent Scammed us link too.

I think it's great everyone coming together to fight them all:D

What's the betting that within a year Computeach will go under and this deal was going to prop them up for a few months so BPF would not be in the same position again. Has anyone else here had an offer for BPF to knock 2k of the loan? i did a couple of months back. Funny the agreement had no reference to section 75 within it.

No they just sent me payment demands on an account that's on hold very bad

I was wondering what about people who paid cash to Advent is there a way they could be refunded.

It seems unfair if they have no training and no money.

 

Any suggestions :?::?::?:

Looks like they may have a new "Target audience" and hoped that we might not have noticed them..

 

Well done for finding them.. maybe a few words in the right places with warnings?
