    • The plot thickens ... China may be producing the counterfeit stamps. Seems there's a lot of them about Royal Mail urged to investigate claims of Chinese-made fake stamps | Postal service | The Guardian WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM Minister says he will work with business to investigate, while China dismisses suggestion of state role as ‘absurd’   Although that wouldn't have explained what happened to citizenB's friend who apparently received the stamp from the Royal Mail.  The fake stamps are (allegedly) only distributed through non-Post Office shops and the ones from the Post Office are legit and made under strict controls in the UK. Post Offices aren't permitted to go out and buy their stamps from other sources. (For clarity it was Royal Mail who provided the stamps to citizenB's friend, not the Post Office, which is a separate company. But I assume Royal Mail got its stamps for the 'swaps' from the legit UK manufacturer and didn't buy them on Amazon!). Still, I will make sure I buy stamps from a Post Office in future, not from my corner shop. Did you friend ever get anywhere with his complaints @citizenB ?  
    • Just the phone call and fear of the kids being involved and it upsetting them.  Sadly I have remembered I went over my miles as this latest car took ages to get here (we get them brand new) so I kept my pld one a yr longer so it was mileage over my what I had been allocated that they were deducting. I need to Get exactly what the payments were for I haven't answered the bailiffs through paper means it was purely done through returning a phone call and a quick google.  I have no recollection of a pcn on the car, if there had of been It would of been a reminder to pay it but this was the last week of my mums life. Things were stressful so as iv said, I don't remember getting one. I appreciate everything you lot do and have a fantastic union guy so will get him on board 🏴‍☠️
    • Can I ask why is it when I go to set up payment that the bank refuses to credit that person unless the name matches the account but in this case they didn’t take that into account? How is it that the traders bank will not disclose the name even to my bank when there is a court order against him? And finally, I can’t locate a form that is for requesting a variation. Besides I thought the name change would mean it couldn’t be served? In company’s house there’s never been one where the car dealership name matched the address.
    • Thanks for the link. Unfortunately I bought crossed PO's. The last time I bought a PO you had to draw two lines and write & co. Also I signed the letters, a throwback to years in an office many years ago.

    • 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.

Hi,

 

Apologies if this has been asked before but I had a good look around and couldn't find a thread that addressed my specific issue.

 

My son has an old debt relating to a current account with HSBC. The original debt was for just over £4,000.00, it was definatley his and he does not dispute it.

 

To cut a long story short he was contacted by various different solicitors/debt collectors and finally ended up being contacted by Rockwell. As he did not dispute the debt he has been paying them £20 per month and the balance of the debt is now around £3,380.00.

 

I have recently been helping him to sort his finances out and we sent Rockwell a 'prove it' letter. Unfortunatley I missed the bit about not signing the letter, but hopefully that won't be an issue.

 

They have written back today stating:-

We can confirm that the account assigned to our above named client relates specifically to a current account and as such is not regulated under the Consumer Credit Act 1974. Due to the nature of this account there is no written agreement to provide, we return the £1.00 fee enclosed with your letter. (Your £1.00 postal order has been enclosed)

 

The enclosed statement of payments is your acceptance and acknowledgement of liability.

 

Your repayment has been reset at the current rate of £20.00 per month for the next 6 months, payment details will follow in the post.

 

Are they correct in that his payments are acknowledgement of liability and therefore he should carry on making the payments or does he have any other options?

 

As I said, he does not dispute the original debt and is not trying to wriggle out of his responsibilities, but on the other hand I don't believe he should have to keep paying these leeches if the original debt has been written off by HSBC and Rockwell are blatantly profiteering from him.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice,

 

Regards,

 

Martin/Cheffy.

Yes payment is admission of liability, so he will have to continue repayment. Unless the debt was statute barred at the point he made his first payment. I presume not statute barred as you have not mentioned that 6 years passed by without payment, acknowledgement or CCJ.

 

I am presuming there has been a lot of correspondence from the various companies involved, which must have included a default notice and reassignment of debt letter from HSBC at some point.

 

At £20 per month this is going to be ongoing for a long time and your son will be under pressure to increase the payments. Then there is the issue of his credit record/rating.

 

When did he default with HSBC ? Has your son requested full information from them ? A subject access request for copies of statements and copies of default notice, with other related correspondence may be useful to have.

We could do with some help from you.

payment is not an admission of liability, and neither is just supplying a statement...you need the letter of assignment if they are saying they have purchased the debt..

 

So you are saying that if this matter was presented in court, with copies if all the letters issued and record of payment, this would not be seen as admission of liability?

making payments is not an admission it could be argued that these were given incorrectly or as a gift...if you gave me a statement and told me i owed you money just because you had a statement would you expect me just to pay you? i think not..also default notices are not issued on a current account a notice of termination should have been

Point taken re termination notice and not default.

 

I have read other opinions that payments, taken into consideration with other documentation, can be considered by a court as admission of liability.

 

Is there any specific case law covering this?

I think things are getting confused with admission of a debt somehow debarring or not debarring a Statute Barred Debt.

 

If a period of six years (five in Scotland) has passed where no written acknowledgement or payment towards a debt has been made then a debt becomes Statute Barred. Any payment or admission after that period does not unbar a debt, it remains legally unenforceable regardless.

My point was that payment could be seen as admission of liability in some circumstances, if the debt is not statute barred.

 

We don't know whether statute barred applies or not. The OP will have to look into this.

Afternoon all,

 

First of all thanks for your input and advice everyone.

 

No, I'm 99% certain the debt is not Statute Barred. I will double check though.

 

Unfortunatley my son is not very good at keeping correspondence so I don't have all the relevant paperwork.

 

I will draft a letter for him to sign for HSBC requesting all the relevant information as unclebulgaria suggests.

 

Thanks again,

 

Martin/Cheffy.
