    • I would like to think not too, hindsight is a wonderful thing, and I did say before had this all been done in a face to face situation I wouldn't be in this current predicament. I mentioned that he said after his first initial call to me about the clutch/strut needing replaced however the car requires a completely new paint job and stripping of the 'wrap' (actually a badly attempted effort at spraying with a plasti dip paint) which wasn't apparent in any of the pictures, nor did he mention it. However, even this doesn't come into it with the 14 days to cancel as no reason has to be given.    I'm hopeful that it if goes before a judge and the fact it was sold on a trade sales invoice will be case closed in my favour in under 5 minutes. 
    • Well, perhaps pointing that out in the first place was a tad sarcastic, so, I generally reply to sarcasm with sarcasm.    Bottom line is, the reason distance sales open more avenues for a consumerrights etc is because people get duped by dodgy traders rather frequently.       I believe your own first response was, good luck with the 12 months extension, which is already in my favour, so a bit more savvy in knowing what you're talking about before you responded would maybe have prevented me from pointing out that yes, I do indeed have the 12 months extension.   My apologies you said it should be interesting. .. goodness knows what you meant by that.
    • "Is it just that? Oh I thought it was because of all the effort he and others made to rightly bring DCBL to court. But he just got lucky there I suppose   "All the effort put in"? You mean there was some kind of entrapment? Surely not.
    • Annoying as it is, people can order food delivery, eat it, and claim a refund, so how can you persuade them that isn't the case here? how are you going to show that in your case you didn't eat the food as it was so bad?   Did you contact the takeaway (at the time) as well as Just Eat, and tell them the food wasn't to standard?? If so, what did they say?.   In a restaurant the diner has the ability to leave the poor food, and bring it to the attention of the serving staff. Not an option in the case of a delivery (except if you take it back to the provider, which negates the point of delivery, but does make it plain there is a major quality issue).   I doubt you'll get the whole £27 back, and how much effort do you want to put in, for the expectation of how much refund?.   £27 (at most!)?. Leave them a poor review, don't order from them again, and move on..........

    • 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 .

What benefits were they on and what is the reason on the notification for stopping them?

So what reason have they given for terminating his claim? And the reason that they have given - is it correct?

I think the reason is..

That he never turned up for 1 appointment so reed (employment for dwp)

said they aint going to pay him..

Until £400 is repaid....

And the claim was stopped in june im at a loss...

i dont understand how they pay them for june then send a letter out in july telling them the claim is stopped....

and the child tax credit want £4,000 off them...

strange

Hi gdk2711,

 

They can't refuse to pay a benefit until an overpayment is repaid. Tax credit can but not JSA. But in any case they can't reinstate a terminated claim unless via a reconsideration or appeal.

 

They can make deductions from a new benefit award though. If he did fail to appear at a scheduled appointment then he has not complied with his JSAg so they are entitled to terminate the claim, and he would need to re-apply for JSA. If he did turn up at the appointment or had a good reason for failing to turn up then he should re-claim JSA but also appeal the decision to terminate his last claim. They would still have paid him because JSA is paid in arrears; it also may depend on the timescale that it took Reed to inform them of his failure to attend.

 

Hi all

they were told there claim stopped july 1st (dwp) and they owe them £200 for an overpayment

 

And wont give them any money till they pay £400 overpayment

Until £400 is repaid....

 

Is it £200 overpayment as you first stated or is it £400 as you now state? How did the overpayment on JSA occur?

 

there kids were removed june 2009... and the child tax credits have landed them with a £4.000 bill to repay them..

 

When the children were removed, did they end the child tax credit claim? Did payments stop at this time? Or did they continue to claim?

 

 

and her boyfriend made dwp claim and his girlfriend made tax credit claim

but using 2 different surnames for him..

 

Can you clarify why you think this is relevant, as I can't see the relevance myself?

 

Thanks

Sorry for late response...

As far as we can gather now they were claiming at 2 seperate address's

THIS HAS NOT BEEN CONFIRMED

We found out today they have a crisis loan of £50 to last them 3 weeks..

This is becoming a lot more suspect...

with them......

Hi, I'm sorry I neglected you gdk2711. The information available at the moment is not sufficeint to offer any real advise to be frank, though I understand you can only tell us what they tell you.

 

For example:

And also she told us they were getting a reduced rate as the had to buy snacks for there kids in care when him and her had contact in a contact centre...

 

Tax credit does not pay a parent to provide snacks for their kids who are not under their guardianship. I don't think you are being told the full story here.

 

In regard to the tax credit, if they don't pay it voluntarily, HMRC will pursue it via the court.

 

They should speak to a Welfare Rights officer or CAB - but it is imperitive that they are straight with them. If they aren't upfront then they CAB/WR will not be in a position to help.
