    • 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 guys,

 

Just received a letter from 'Graham White Solicitors' saying that I'm about to be taken to court regarding a Central Ticketing fine.

 

I've contacted Trading Standards and they've told me that GWS have the right to take me to court should they decide to pursue it. Technically I was trespassing on private land and admitted to it so I'm not sure where I stand.

 

A lot of people have told me to just ignore the letters but as long as I'm getting them I don't feel like I can move on.

 

Thanks for your help in the past on this matter but once again I'm not sure what to do!

 

Thanks,

Debbie

They always say they will take you to court. But never do it.

I normally write back stating that I am very much looking forward to the court action in order that this matter can be resolved.

Anybody has the 'right' to take anybody else to court.

 

If you were trespassing, the landowner or his agent would be entitled to actual damages. On a free car park, zero. If you didn't buy a P&D ticket, maybe a quid.

 

Would you take anyone to court for a quid??

 

It's a mail [problem]. And it's not a fine.

 

Trading Standards are generally clueless. They're not a crack team of intellectuals - it's just some bloke who has an office in your town hall.

Thanks for all your posts. I felt that paying the amount would put my mind to rest and therefore I could enjoy my holiday - we're going away on Tuesday for 3 weeks. we are also changing address. My other thoughts are that if they do summon me to court, however unlikely, I would not know about it and therefore would be in even more trouble!

 

It would be my luck for me to be the first person Central Ticketing took to court! Haha!

By paying them, you are doing your bit in keeping them in business for longer. Your decision to make, but helping to put them out of business by starving them of cash would be a more socially acceptable contribution.

Would you pay someone if they said you had won the lottery and you needed to pay £80 to get it.

 

In fact why dont you pay, i am going to take you to court unless you pay me now.

 

Have a look at this page:

Dont you get it now, its just automated letters that get sent out as part of the [problem].

Thank you for giving me the reality check I need!!!!

 

I think I just needed people to spell it out to me!

 

i just had a bit of a laugh to myself! i looked at the link you sent and the 3rd letter from central ticketing is exactly the same as mine!

 

I suppose I won't even see the 4th letter becasue I won't be at the same address and it probably wouldn't be a good idea to give them my new address! haha!

 

Thanks for reassuring me everyone!
