    • 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 
    • well anyway. as its the same email then and not directed at them to pay no its not correct they have done it under gdpr etc etc.   so regarding the debt. what readings prior to this have you been sending? to prove this billing is correct or not  have regularly sent them before  and is the estimated readings higher than your actual usage. when does the debt First date back too aswell

    • 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 all,

 

Can anyone please offer advice about the seemingly non-existent customer support offered by Orange ?

 

I have been trying to get a network unlock code for my Nokia phone since it was replaced by upgrade in May.

 

I've called customer service numerous times, including speaking to a "manager". I've also emailed their executive office but heard nothing apart from the standard "contact customer support" email.

 

Despite initially being promised a code by post (something I was later told they did not do), being promised a code by email several times, a lovely call centre person arguing with me that I'd already received the code and finally being promised callbacks that have never occured, I'm still waiting for a code.

 

The final joke in this debacle is Orange say this code has to be supplied by Nokia but when I contacted Nokia they say only Orange can provide it.....

 

I seem to be going round in circles here & getting nowhere

Lets hope we can see some results.

For some reason we dont appear to be hearing about many reported disputes/complaints actually being sorted.

well I have finally received my unlock code tonight - I'm not sure if this is down to the last phone call we made to their customer service dept on Tuesday evening or the involvement of Andy, as I've not received a reply from him after his initial post above.

What !! you got a manager. They must have accidentally picked up the phone at the wrong time. You'll get more help from the speaking clock.

I've worked in 4 call centers dealing with telecoms issues, and in each and every one, 80% of managers know nothing about the systems. They are normally there to manage the people. Some became managers by climbing thrugh the ranks, but not many!

 

Glad it's all sorted unclefester :)

So it's bad management which creates bad customer services? I'm now dealing with the famous NCO. Cheers

That's not what I was getting at, Bad management doesn't help CS staff perform at their best tho. Countless times I've had phone calls where someone will not let me deal with issues and demanding a manager :roll:. Start you're own thread if you're having troubles aswell Bob. A good place to start a complaint is to google their "Code of practice" and follow the steps outlined there.

Yes we know they rarely inform customers of their R/Os-its not just Orange,almost all are the same.

 

Actually thats perhaps not strictly true-I meant to say that they dont advocate directing complaints to their R/O.

 

But if things were sorted earlier by using the contacts they advocate,then escalating upstairs wouldnt be needed.

Disagree, it will be somewhere on every piece of correspondence that any registered company send to you, it has to be under the Companies Act.

 

Notwithstanding that point I'm unsure why when a company has given you an address for the people responsibile for handling complaints that you would choose to send your complaint to another address within that company.

 

If your sending correspondence to a different address not only is it likely to take longer to reach the people they've already suggested you send the document to, which would add more time to the amount of time it would take for someone to investigate and reply to a complaint, you then run the risk of them misplacing or losing the correspondence you sent whilst they arrange to send it to the people within the company that they ask/suggest you to send the document to in the first place.

 

You also seem to be implying that correspondence directed to a registered office would take some form of precedence over correspondence sent to a complaints address, I've worked for a couple of large telco's handling written complaints and I can tell that in neither case was correspondence directed to a registered office treated any differently to correspondence sent to the address that they gave out for written complaints/correspondence, it was all replied to by the same CSRs, Correspondence just took longer to get to the right people because the companies in question had to arrange to send the documents from one office/site or building to another to get it to the members of staff.

The Orange "Code of practice" request complaints to be made by phone call... Most on CAG prefer to complain in writing.
