    • I would also take this opportunity to add that I don't really understand why you purchased an insurance policy for this watch – unless it offered you something like new for old, accidental damage or that the policy was transferable to a new owner in the event you decided to sell the watch. If there is not the features that interested you then you are perfectly adequately covered by your consumer rights contained in the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and of course it would be unlawful for John Lewis to attempt to exclude or limit liability in case something happened to the watch and it ceased to be of satisfactory quality for a reasonable period of time. By and large these extended warranties are a waste of money
    • Sunak to new MPs at the Kings Speech debate. Rishi Sunak, in the king's speech debate, tells new MPs that "life comes at you fast" on the government benches. "Before you know it you end up with a bright future behind you and are left wondering whether you can credibly be an elder statesman at the age of 44," he adds.
    • Properly declared means that you declared the exact value of the item that you sent and by and large you are limited in the value that you can claim to that declared value.  It seems that you didn't declare the value of the accompanying insurance and so if you want, you can go ahead and claim it and we will help you but by and large although your chances of recovering the value of the watch are much better than 95%, The chances of you claiming the value of the lost insurance are much less.  It's up to you if you want to try . Please do the reading that we have advised and start preparing your letter of claim and post the draft here. I suggest that you think about posting up a draft letter of claim on about Sunday which will give you lots of time to do necessary reading

    • 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 everyone, I have just joined this site to see what to do as a next step from here.

 

My dads car recieved a fine 2 weeks ago for being over the bays at leyton, I sent an appeal to ukpc and with pics of about 5 vehicles which didn't get a fine for being over the bays. They rejected the letter and extended it another 2 weeks to pay the low amount.

 

I've read through the forums all saying the same thing " do not pay". Is there any kind of assurances of not paying? Or should I write a second letter? What's my next step?

From the title of the thread

Ukpc denied my first letter of appeal, what to do?

 

What to do advice is easy - NOTHING

 

Appealling is a waste of time as it is a private parking company out to [problem] the unwary out of their hard earned cash

 

Appeals except in very rare circumstances will always fail as the business is based on [causing problems] people out of their money and it is therefore not in their best interests to cancel their invoices

 

All you have received is a piece of paper with some words on it such as 'important legal document' 'do not ignore' and mentions of court, baliffs, debt collectors, solicitors all designed to make it look official and scare you into paying an unjustified amount because you think it has some official standing. Read through it and there is nothing definate with lots of mights and mayne's. Generally PPC's do not do court as they already know the outcome

 

Appealling means they will mark you up for an extra dose of junk mail as you appeared to take them seriously

 

From now on just Ignore what they send be it from the PPC, their Debt Collectors (next desk) or Solicitors (two desks over)

Thanks ppl, my only concern is that when I wrote the appeal, I gave my fathers name, because he was the registered keeper of the car but he wasn't the driver at that time of the penalty. Would that be a big problem.??

its not a FINE nor Penalty its a [problem] invoice , they cannot FINE you in any manner , nor can they justify the charge in law, nor can they impose a penalty in LAW

 

the [problem] works by sending you letters , that you will think are official

 

one word is all you need

 

IGNORE

If i write to you demanding £100 would you pay me ?

If i put my demand in bold, CAPITALS AND BOLD.

If i told you my solicitor friend would wright to you and use CAPITALS , BOLD, AND EVEN , RED INK.

Would you pay me the £100 fine i am demanding from you?

If you dont pay me the £100 fine i MAY instruct solicitors to prepare papers, which may result in a CCJ being issued through the county courts and i MAY send BAILIFFS to your house to remove goods to the value of £100 and costs of £720.50p MAY be added to your fine!!!!

Cany you see how this works yet?

If not please send me £820.50p within 7 days or else i will CRY.

It would depend whether there was any legal basis for the claim!? The flaw to the PPC enforcement business plan is the identification of the person who parked which makes ignoring the best option, however the OP has written to UKPC which may have included details of who parked so this could end up in Court.

There is still no legal basis for the claim, even if they can identify the driver. Under contract law, you can only claim for your losses not for arbitrary "penalties". If the vehicle in question was parked across two bays, the only loss was the use of the second bay, so they lost the potential parking fee for that bay - what was that, £1 or even £0?

 

Still ignore everything they send you.

I'm sure UKPC would love a win due to an uncontested claim.

They are unlikely in the extreme to even initiate a court action that may expose their [problem] to legal scrutiny, best advice as posted above ignore ignore ignore.

We could do with some help from you.

I think you're scaremongering somewhat Green & Mean.

 

There appears to be no basis for any claim and as we know, the chances are miniscule. Have UKPC ever even done court?

 

Uncontested claims are great if you want to start off just trying to reclaim the money you spent on the claim and then put a large amount of time and effort into recovering what is a piddling sum to a business. There is also the risk the other side will wake up and try to set the judgement aside.

I grasp the meaning of your post green_and_mean (money for nothing and the chicks are free [cannot remember the name of the song or artist] )

 

 

 

i have recieved a letter about the ukpc again, but this time they have changed from "debt collectors ltd" to "parking collection services ltd" and also offered a discount from £148.99 down to £89.99. what you think people should i pay?????????????

 

 

 

 

:doh:

 

If you re read this thread that you have started you will arrive at the anwer to your last post.

 

They have offered you a discount in the hope that you will pay a smaller sum.

 

if you IGNORE it then you will had a much bigger discount ie: £148.99p discounted to £ 0.00p

 

:lalala: IGNORE :hand: IGNORE :lalala:

Am at the discount staqge with the current PPC paperwork - this shows just how thick (and desperate) they are as if they had any real claim to the amount they are invoicing for, they would proceed straight to court for the full amount (not that it would do them any good). Begging letters to come next no doubt :madgrin:

 

What does surprise me a little is that they do not keep a record of past potential victims so they know who is going to ignore them to save them the cost of sending out all their waste paper

 

Oh well more fool them but I wonder what will happen once everyone gets wise to their little [problem] :!:
