    • Thank you for the response; I'm very grateful for the help and i'm open to all feedback. I'm afraid I don't understand what is meant by properly declared and valued? On the Evri app, when completing the process of sending a parcel, I did declare that I was sending a 'watch' and gave the full value of the watch (£429.99). I'm not an online seller if that helps. The parcel contained my own personal watch; a Garmin which cost £474.99 (inclusive of 'protect plus insurance' from John Lewis of £45). The £45 Protect Plus insurance from John Lewis covers the Garmin watch, and as they have lost it, it is no longer valid. So i'm adding that to the total claim.  It was a birthday gift bought for me this Jan/Feb by my partner.    Re: understanding of Parcel delivery insurance; "Part 1 Chapter 4 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 means I have a legal right to expect that any service I’ve paid for should be carried out with reasonable care and skill". So I understood from this that I have rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 that protect me, regardless of not choosing to purchase their insurance protection.        
    • HI all, I work for a company who offers a review service for large companies, whereby customers can review products and/or services and the reviews appear on the companies own site My job, along with roughly 10 others, is to moderate those reviews. We're all on a zero hours contract, we do work as and when it's available. The way the system works is for every 120 reviews we moderate, we get paid the equivalent of the basic minimum wage, so £11.44 per 120 reviews. If this were a steady supply of reviews, it could be a decent income, but it's not, so you end up spending a lot of time doing nothing and not being paid for it, such is life For the last 3 months or so they've had an issue whereby a lot of reviews were duplicated up to 15 times and we were told to moderate those as we would normal reviews, You can imagine how many reviews we've been having to moderate, my moderated review count was probably around 4x the number I normally do, almost throughout the entirety of June this was going on for. being quite excited about the prospect of a boost in income, to me and other mods surprise and shock, we're not being paid for all those extra hours and work done, for the past 3 months when the issue started.. We're only being paid for the non duplicate reviews, plus 5% on top. In my case, instead of receiving around £1500ish for the month of June, I'm only receiving around £500 I mean, I get it, marking each of these duplicates was very quick/easy, as it was a repeat decision from the previous 14, but to let us do all that work and not pay us for it?
    • That's good news, well done. From  memory, self-employed people didn't pay into SERPS, it was for employees. And I believe SERPS stopped in 2002, being replaced by S2P. HB
    • You should for the court to consider otherwise they wont grant a directions hearing.
    • Two things: Firstly, can you avoid posting solid blocks of text. They are very difficult for people to read and to follow especially when using small screen such as telephones. Properly spaced please. I have restructured your one for you – but it would be nice if you took care of this yourself. Secondly, when you upload documents in PDF format – please can you use single file multipage format and also a name which is meaningful instead of just random numbers.pdf. As a general guide, you should upload documents in a way that you would like yourself to receive them if you are helping somebody free of charge. I have deleted the two files which you have uploaded earlier. As far as I can make out they are all part of the same document and should have been uploaded in a single file format and named. As it is, they aren't especially relevant at the moment so don't bother about reposting them but please bear in mind what we are saying about uploaded documents. I notice that although I asked you if the item was properly declared and valued you haven't responded in particular you haven't told us the declared value. Is there any reason for this please? Do you understand why you don't need parcel delivery insurance?

    • 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.

If it was that easy I would have done long ago, SP2 cannot repair it or removed or download it. the same SP3 with pack sp2. Got all downloads but as SP2 and SP3 Pack 2 needs reparing they will not install probably.

 

thanks for help anyway.

from your last pic its saying your hard disk is spilt with 2 partitions one with 14 gig left ( C) main statup drive

 

and the other E with 263 with gig of space left

 

you have 2 drives C and E ,,, c has no name and E is named Elements

 

its looks like your saving everything to c: , and it needs trimming down, may also be the reason your having problems its prob so fragmented its running like a pig

 

move as much of your saved stuff as you can to E

 

once you check everthing has moved ok , check random files for working , music , video or what ever you have about 200 gig , will take a bit of time to move everything , do the move a bit at a time , DONT highlight everything in one go to move it , if something wont move you have to start again

 

DO NOT try to MOVE WINDOWS or anything contained in it

 

what was the size of your hard drive when you got the PC, 550 gig or similar ?

Thanks kiptower, the E drive is external, I have been moving files onto it.

 

My processor is Core 2 Duo perhaps I have inadvertently made a partition, not sure but explore it later.

 

My main problem is on the control panel with SP2 that needs repairing and it seems that Netfx20a_x86.msi file is missing as when I click into repair SP2 it asks for that file and I have checked my computer for it but I think it is not on my PC perhaps I must have deleted it. Also SP3 pack is also needs to be repair as well.

 

Been exploring the net for answers but have not come up with a simple sloution:-(

ok thats better more good info.

 

Repair .Net 2: missing Netfx20a_x86.msi Amir Aryani

 

and

 

The possible cause of the issue can be the corrupted .NET Framework 2.0 SP1.

Could you please try using .NET Framework cleanup tool to totally clean .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 installation

and then reinstall .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 since it includes .NET Framework 2.0 SP2.

 

If it doesn't work, please feel free to let me know.

 

- Try to clean your "%temp%" folder

- Install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

 

I had the same problem.

I got dotnetfx35.exe from http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/e/20e90413-712f-438c-988e-fdaa79a8ac3d/dotnetfx35.exe

and followed the steps described in

http://download.microsoft.com/download/A/2/8/A2807F78-C861-4B66-9B31-9205C3F22252/VS2008SP1Readme.htm#General%20Issues

and everything worked fine.

One caveat to this is after you finish those steps if you have your VS open, close it and open again, since it will not pick up changes that you did.

dx is right follow what he said , i said you have 2 partition it should have read 2 drives , ( soz it was very late when i typed the reply )

 

do the net fix , make sure everything is Ok or got back to DX

 

 

 

 

then if everything is ok get all you can moved to the E drive keep as much space free on the C drive as i said before your main drive will run slow as its almost full

 

when you have moved what you can and test bits you have moved etc and are happy defrag the C drive
