    • Did you send the note giving them the extension of time? When does the extension expire/date for issue of claim? I see that this thread started on 25 October. I have to say that when it started I thought it was going to be a quick fix and hadn't bargained for virgin's ineptitude which has certainly made it a lot more interesting but I'm hoping that March is going to be the month that it will finally all get sorted out. Surely someone responsible within Virgin has got to start taking a look and understanding the extraordinary mess that they have built for themselves and want to sort it out.  
    • Dispute with Vodafone and get copy invoices last invoice 2016 no balance on old number I have invoices upto nov16 showing no balance brought forward just before upgraded.   you say above you have all the bills that state a zero balance up until nov2016 are they in the SAR return too,? and all the ones after nov 2016?   the account number in the poc is this the same number as on those bills you have? and the number on the pages of the comms log you uploaded? as the comms log appears to show payments were being made right through the period you say the bills you have all show £0? then being transferred to other invoice numbers  , do these invoice numbers the payments were transferred too match the invoice numbers show £0 balance you have?          
    • no go back and read my guide earlier CAREFULLY...
    • Oh ok.   I thought I would need to write some sort of defence when I acknowledge the claim on the mcol website.
    • woe SLOWDOWN>   your defence is weeks away. (day 33) no there are no templates as each claim is unique. however, if you use our search top right. for say claimform card you'll see numerous versions people have adapted based upon our std holding/no paperwork defence , one of which, might well be suitable.   get CCA/CPR requests running monday and get AOS done now on mcol, you've already lost 10 of your 19days to do AOS   then get reading up as i detailed above the more you read here the stronger we become   dx

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi there

I think us Dog Owners have now got a 100% "Get out of Jail" Card.

 

Unlike other countries that seem to have a well defined written constitution and both a "Civil" and "Penal" code for their Law, English Common Law seems intentionally vague and in this case it could be on our side too for once.

 

Baliff's have a right to gain PEACEFUL ENTRY into a property.

 

Now I doubt whether even people living several doors away hearing 2 Dobermanns barking with ferocious fury would agree that a "Peaceful Entry" was being attempted.

 

In this case surely there is utterly NO QUESTION WHATSOEVER of a Peaceful Entry -- so presumably 99% of people who have dogs would be totally exempt from a Bailiff ever gaining access to a property.

 

 

Good one for "The Doggies". They weren't called "Mans Best Friend" for nothing.

 

Well done Doggies.

 

 

Motto for 2010

 

" A Post A Day will Keep the Bailiff's Away".

 

Cheers

'Peaceful entry' is when they gain entry to your property by invitation, through an unlocked door or window, or climbing over a fence/walking through an unlocked gate. If it clearly states that there are dogs in the property, then I think it would be rather silly of them to gain entry whilst the debtor is not about, for their own safety more than anything.

direct invitation: being asked to enter by someone

open invitation: open door or window

 

both of theses are peaceful entry.

 

Threshhold entry: pushing past, foot in the door

Not peaceful entry

I have to disagree Jimbo. I always keep a couple of large bags of pork scratchings in the boot.... then im usually the "dogs best friend" :)

Hi there

 

Actually my dogs are really peaceful when eating their dinner -- however if anybody says the words "Bailiff" or "DCA" you could probably hear them barking a mile away at least.

 

I've now added another hate word to their vocabulary - "Rossendales" -- then they REALLY go mad.

 

Cheers
