    • Hi,     I'm in the process of voluntary termination of my moneybarn agreement, in accordance with secion 99(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. I have returned the vehicle, it was collected by a 3rd party on behalf of MB, in driveable condition with fear wear and tear condition.  Their report states that the condition was "Average" (The options were Good, Average and Poor). I have paid more than 50% and recently, before starting the VT process spent £700 to make sure car is roadworthy (gearbox repairs). I am £880 over the 50% mark. Today I've received final billing letter estimating body repairs at over £1,300 (the bodywork is fine - peeling lacquer and alloy wheels would need refurb though). I've purchased the car at 7 years old with over 80k miles, through National Car Credit (pretty sure I've seen another topic on here about them). The car is now more than 10 years old, and I did take pictures + videos of the car before it was collected.   Now. I've had a payment holiday through April and May (which I don't dispute and will willingly cover the amount that they're asking for this payment holiday term) But however I'm not okay with covering the bodywork repairs for a car that is over 10 years old and wasn't excellent condition the day I've purchased it. It came with no service history book and only one key (on my own expense I've purchased another one and had it programmed)   No arrears on the account, no missed payments (just 2 month agreed payment holiday - between myself and MB) which I'm okay to cover. Given the car back in drive-able condition (it was very noisy the week before it was collected, hence why I've spent money on repairs) half of tank of petrol, kept tax up to the day it was collected.   Advice would be appreciated, thank you.   dx: I can't pm you as I haven't got enough posts on here, but if you'd like more details and see what has been sent and see the responses please PM me.     Thanks.
    • I am not a lawyer but I definitely think you are correct.   You will need evidence that Fast Track was not available on your way out - "Unknown reasons" sounds ominous. Do you have pictures/videos/written records to prove it?   Ryanair website states they are not responsible for you missing your flight as a result of fast track, but it doesn't say anything about not being responsible for the product they sold you not being available. Have you tried asking for a refund already?   Either way they sold you something that they did not provide - I don't see how this can be legal - and hopefully you should be able to prove it. Get written evidence that they refused to refund you (if you don't have it already) and take it straight to your card provider. (by many accounts it seems pointless to try and negotiate with Ryanair)
    • Hello everyone, recently I ordered 4 birds, 2 canaries and 2 lovebirds from a pet shop in Nottingham. When I received the birds, one of the canaries looked scruffy and had a bald spot on its back. when I asked the owner if this was normal he stated that “it is a baby and will be normal in a week” so I waited a week and I discovered it was sneezing throughout the night. I then decided to check their weight and the scruffy one was only 15 grams while the other was 26 grams. While weighing them I discovered they were covered in blood mites (small bugs that feed on blood) so I contacted him and he said I could return them but I’m unable to drive an hour to his shop so I offered to pay another delivery fee fr him to pick it up but he was ignoring me so I decided to try to treat them and bought many medicines and I cured their mute problem but now all 4 birds are sneezing, I’ve had many birds before and I’ve never had these problems so I asked him if he couldn’t please come pick them up but he kept reading my messages and ignoring me then when I called him he blocked my number so I messaged him on my other number laws showing te sale of an ill animal is prohibited and sent him proof of his false advertising (saying they were “excellent healthy birds”) proof fm their illness and he blocks me again. I feel scammed and according to the law he I is obligated to refund me for the birds and any medical expenses but I don’t know know where to report him or what to do about it. Any suggestions would  be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi all,

 

industrial area with no restrictions in parking bays (no residents or pay and display) although, there are single yellows. i had to park on a single yellow while i queried inside when i could drive into the premises i was there for. 50 yds from the entrance. i saw Parking Warden donig his thing so ran over to stop him. He said that it was too late and it was already "in the system". Cynically i doubted him and said i was going and started the car. He then tells me that to do so is a further offence and won't alter issuance of the ticket. So i wait for the ticket (it took at least 3 minutes and on the ticket it states i was observed for 3 minutes) and he advises me to appeal and state:

-that i was there on a private (non business) matter

-that it was fleeting

 

he also offered the info that he hadn't taken a photo.

 

My question is, does it seem likely to succeed if I appeal on the basis that:

i was on a personal errand and i also dispute that no evidence has been provided of the offence (assuming no photo exists)

 

thx in advance

He said that it was too late and it was already "in the system" he lied, it has to be issued - given to the driver or stuck on the car when its a real PCN. But was this a council ticket or a PPC 'load-of-rubbish-PCN' ?

No it doesn't as long as the PCN has been started it can be sent in the post.

But that wouldn't be the PCN he had started. he starts a reg 9 and has to send a reg 10 by post. the reg 9 PCN ( 'it' ) cannot be sent by post. you can drive away. the CEO also lied about "He then tells me that to do so is a further offence and won't alter issuance of the ticket." it is not an offence to drive away. you know this G&M.

I never said it was an offence. The CEO does not however type up a reg 10 at the roadside and pop it in the post when he gets to a post box. The reg 9 is issued and then cancelled and a new reg 10 sent so if he has started it is too late. Whilst he may be incorrect on the offence point he was correct in that it would be pointless to drive off other than to cost the LA the price of a stamp.

The CEO did say it was an offence - he lied. he also lied about it being too late, it wasn't. you can drive off any time before the PCN is issued. you know it, I know it and the CEO should know it - if he didn't then he shouldnl' have been out on the street. There is no reason why the cEO should bot have just shrugged his shoulders and carried on to the reg 10 PCN Maybe the CEO was too incented by the fact that the reg 9 would have to be cancelled and that the number of cancelled PCNs are are a KPI.The number of cases we see were the car is driven off no Reg 10 is issued and the next thing is an NTO arrives indicates a widespread systemic problem on the part of LAs/CEOs. And it can not be bcause all those CEOs want to save the council a stamp especially at the cost of jeopardising the case. Or maybe this CEO works for a council that doesn't issues reg 10s at all, I seem to recall there are one or two. how far he has gotten in entering it into his machine is irrelevant, its service that counts. you know it and I know it.

The CEO actually said it was too late to alter the issuing of the ticket which was true if he had started as seems to be the case. You obviously don't have a clue what you are talking about a cancelled reg 9 that was then posted would not affect any KPI figures it is the same PCN.

It's true that many Councils do not issue reg 10 PCN's or do so seldomly. It is mainly the district councils.

 

The reason is that the backoffice staff can barely get their heads around the wording and processing of a reg 9 PCN and reg 10's are seen as a bit of a legal minefield and not worth the effort.

Thanks for taking the time to consider this everyone. I am going to ask the Council to consider cancelling the PCN on the basis that i was on a personal errand and would also ask them to provide evidence of the alleged contravention. The PCN only names the street and says "OPP MUSIC SCHOOL", this doesn't seem to me like a very specific or clear description.

 

Thanks again,

will update when i get a response

 

(Also on the PCN it states that you can appeal online, yet when you go to the address it tells you that the service is not currently available. Could this possibly render the PCN void as it contains incorrect information which would mean appealing on the final day allowed (14th day) would be impossible as it would then be too late to post etc)

No he cannot post a reg 9 PCN ! You know it and I know it, the Regs are very clear. All the CEO has to do is hand in the cancelled PCN and fill out a Witness Statement and a reg 10 can be sent. The OP is very clear that the ticket was not issued when the CEO started his tirade of lies. Now lets get back on track and see the PCN and start finding ways to beat it if there are any, after all thats why we post on here.
