    • I was at court today with a Similar offence - 68 in a variable 40...M62.   I originally Phoned the police camera dept and asked for camera proof including gantry signs showing 40...they sent them and it showed the 40 and my vehicle.   I pleaded guilty, and asked for the single justice procedure thingy.   Came back with possible short term  disqualification, with option for hearing to plead against etc. I asked for a hearing   Finally 11 months after the offence, hearing came through.   Arrived at court, finally was called in.   Offence read out etc and then I had a chance to put forward orally my personal mitigation etc. (Remorse, I was stupid, wont do it again,  need license for work as live in rural area etc, first offence, good character standing)   Today the magistrates were kind...6 points and a fine...something like £450 plus £85 costs (cant remember the exact amount but was around £535 if greatly different will repost.  Have 14 days to pay, they will send me the amount etc.   I feel very lucky today, could have been worse.  Good luck with your case.

    • Hi I got a tent from go outdoors,   over £1000 for tent porch carpet  and footprint and it was faulty, so they exchanged it, it was only 2 weeks old,  so I got another tent tht to was faulty, I have pictures of the faults,  but this time they weren't happy to exchange but they did,  then I got a vanguard 8 ,  and when we were on holiday the rain was coming through the material of the tent, holes in the stitching and the zip kepted breaking, so 2 days into our holiday we came home to change the tent and go back and finish our holiday,  but they refused, this tent was only9 days old.  So we left the store phoned head office and they said "go back to store and give them another chance to sorte this out!"  So we did and the manger was worse this time, to ring head office he didn't want to. I have a proof of a call from head office for 40mins and the manager was implying to head office I was lying about a phone call  and head office have on record of them phoning me , the manager asked me to leave the store or he will phone the police   so I told him to get the police,   while waiting for the police  a customer was returning a tent and when asked from the store what's wrong with it, they said""nothing it's to hard to put away"  so asked the manager how is tht right when my tent is faulty and u wont exchange,   he told the police I was threatening a customer,  I never spoke to the customer, I also told them I am autistic,   The manager lied to the police and the police attuided to me was horrendous and I told them  repeatedly told I was autistic,   I have video evidence of my arrest,  What are my legal rights to a new tent,  any help will be greatly appreciated thank u,   am also dyslexic,  sorry if some of this doesn't make sense ,  I've loads more to tell on this whole situation xx I was arrested for not leaving the store until I had a resolution  All the tents where hi gear  Also I told the manager tht we where on holiday to rest as we've just had 4 weeks of hell with my daughter as shes now in hospital safe,  so we went away for 5 days knowing she was safe ,  and why woul we come home early and try to change a faulty tent,  and go back to our holiday if it wasn't faulty they weren't interested   I've been having meltdowns really bad this x  Also I was released from the police 2hrs later WITHOUT  been Interviewed and NO CHARGES I've had a email today saying because of my being banned from the store I can have a refund   I've sent them emails asking questions and they will answer the email but wont answer my questions and now they saying as a good will gesture they will refund me  But I only have until friday which is 1 day to accept the return and if I dont they will not refund me  And am so distressed ,  Am I right the if a item is faulty you have 28 days to a full refund 
    • Thanks dx I did read these post but wasn’t sure if they ended well.   I suppose it depends on how nervous it would make the buyer, and if their solicitor was happy to play ball.
    • the 120 days runs from when he discovered he could use chargeback. that must be within 540 days of the relevant card transaction. sadly halifax are useless everytime over chargeback  and never get things right.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

I got a penalty fare notice on the underground where I travelled to a meeting then doubled back to where I started as it was cancelled. The notice was served as I left the station I started from on the basis I had been on a journey and not clocked out at the other end. I thought oyster cards work in the place of the old 1-6 day cards where there is no time constraints, plus I had already travelled the max day fare taken on my oyster that day which the guard could see. I got a notice but because of holliday missed the 21 days, I returned it 25 after. Can I still appeal this or take court action to recover this?

I feel strongly that the usage time constaints of the oyster were not made clear on any point of sale literature and still arent.

If I write to threaten court action is there any statements that would sound authentic about this or is this a gonner?

Many thanks

Sam

If you were serious about appealing the notice, you should have sorted it out before going on holiday. I would imagine that after the 21-days has lapsed, any appeal will be thrown straight out of the window. I'm confused about this court action part though, as it's the Oyster Card holder's responsibility to know the ins and outs of its useage etc. I'd hazard a guess that before using the card, you didn't read the A5 size leaflet that is issued with an Oyster Card? Now I have never had one of these cards, but know that they can be complicated, which, to me, would prompt me to get all the facts about them before trying to use it. Lets put it this way, a Penalty Fare isn't the end of the world, but if you want to pursue thie through the courts, it'll more than likely end up costing you more than the £50!

 

I am assuming from your terminology that you paid the PF upfront? If not, then strictly speaking, TfL could be the ones pursuing you!

Your 'right to appeal' under the rules relating to the PF ceased after 21 days. Of course that doesn't stop you from writing and trying your luck as it were, though I doubt that you will be successful

 

As the onus of responsibility is on the traveller to hold a valid ticket and the whole of the LUL system is a compulsory ticket area, I cannot see any likelihood of success for any attempt to get your money back through civil Court action.

 

If your oyster wasn't validated correctly according to rule, then you didn't hold a valid ticket and the PF notice was issued accordingly.

 

If you failed to appeal within the period allowed and specified to you in writing when you were handed the (paid) notice, I cannot see any Court finding good reason to give you your money back.
