    • 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,

My thoughts. Did you have an account with O2?

Was it terminated?

Did you owe anything upon termination?

 

That screenshot means absolutely nothing. They could quite easily stick my details on it.

 

If you rang them, don't do it again. All communication in writing and by recorded delivery

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

You could send a SAR to O2 which would cost you £10 but should get you all the documentation that O2 hold on you.

 

This would or should show the actual debt with no 'charges' etc. added and show when you last paid and how the alleged debt arose.

 

If you go down that route, they (O2) have 40 days in which to supply the documentation, and you could send Lowell/Red the 'in dispute' letter.

thanks Harrassed Senior

 

when i spoke to lowell disputing this issue they said they were contacting o2 to get all documentation

and provide me with the proof ,and as you can see this is what they have come up with

Lowlifes proper chancers, I wouldn't waste my time contacting them, not only can they not read or write they spend all of their time on conumer websites trying to learn consumer law......**BB waves to guests**

 

It's amazing, all you have to do is put Lowell as your heading, and it attracts more guests than registered users..

I don't think Lowells are very busy at the moment, so they have to come on here to pass away the time. :p

I would ignore them from now on. They are phishing for some mug with the same name as the debtor.

 

The only time to reply is if they try to take you to court.

Tut tut, lowlifes fabricating mobile phone debts again!

 

If you've not had a contract with O2, less for PAYG, then ignore these idiots, I would be more than happy to get some of their deforestation through my letterbox, I'd certainly will them to put me in front of a DJ so I could counter sue for damages, they really are the laughing stock of the DCA world.

 

Ensure you keep a diary of events, keep all their pre school letters & envelopes, and each time they make contact with you, make a new complaint about them to the OFT/TS via Consumer Direct - Contact us

thanks everyone ,so am i right in thinking that as they have said in the letter i have posted here (o2 have deleted the account from their system )that this lowell company have made it all up and harrasing me for no reason?

before a debt is sold, O2 would have set the account to zero. This doesn't mean the debt has been written off, it just means that O2 have cleared it from their books so they can get tax relief on it. Then they flogged it.

 

All the Leeds Losers are doing is finding lots of people with the same name and sending multiple letters in the hope someone bites.

 

Keep any letters they send (and envelopes) just in case they try to get legal with you.

 

You could ignore it or you could WRITE and tell them they have the wrong person

But where would the fun be in telling them that they have the wrong person SF??;)

 

String them on for as long as possible I say, the more time they spend chasing an educated CAGger the less time they have chasing and intimidating someone less fortunate...

 

It's quite clear to me, if you have never had a contract phone with O2, and only PAYG, then there is no way you can have racked up this bill, they clearly do have the wrong person, and contacting them even in writing, only encourages the little darlings..

hi guys ,just to keep you posted

 

heard nothing from lowells yet i do have a question though .

 

if o2 have deleted this alleged account im supposed to have ,

wont it be a waste of time sending £10 for all the info and agreement they are supposed to have

and if so how do i prove its nothing to do with me,

 

because if the so called break down lowells sent me (the one i posted on here)

 

is all they can manage to sum up from o2 i dont see how or why they can proceed in pestering me

Link to post
Share on other sites

O2 would have to keep details of the account for about 6 years after the closing of the account however, if it isn't your debt, they won't release information to you as they have to abide with the Data Protection Act.

 

I would just stick with the prove it letter or just telling the idiots that they have the wrong person

my partner just wanted me to pay them she said companies like these (DCA) dont make mistakes so im glad you guys are here to give advice

DCA's are incredibly incompetent and should be in the dictionary under the word 'incompetent'.

 

They like to believe they have some sort of superior knowledge or intelligence others don't have, which is why they talk to people like they do, with that air of superiority and know-it-all attitude, when in fact all they really know can be written on the back of a stamp.

hi everyone,recieved a letter this morning saying i have been offered numerous opportunities to resolve this alleged debt and they are giving me another 5 days to pay up.

they still havnt proved the debt is mine other than the paper i posted on here and as you say it could be anyones there is no hard evidence on it .

is there any letter i can send them as its begining to get on my nerves now all this pestering ,why cant they understand i havnt had a contract with o2

another thing that i also find funny is ,how they always state you must reply within 5,7,14 days of the date on letter and it always takes a week to arrive .

the one i recieved today has the 5.08.10 date on and today is the 9th so if i have 5 days in which to pay up then that means tomorrow is D DAY

Ruddy Chancers :p These letters are by design intended to intimidate.

Time to report them to consumer direct.

You have asked them a perfectly valid question and they are still chasing so let Trading Standards have a go.

hello again all,

 

just to let you know i have had a phone call from lowell today,

i havnt heard from them since june.

 

i told them yet again i do not recognise the alleged mobile contract debt

and they said they would pass it on to their fraud department.

 

maybe it will finally get sorted out ,

 

or maybe they are telling me lies and dont have a fraud department

 

and was hoping i would just pay up to stop them ringing.

 

if its taken them 3 months to ring me again obviously they dont have anything concrete to hound me with.

 

am i right in thinking this
