    • You will be subject to the same laws notice periods and protections as with any length of contract.    From my own and other’s personal experience I would treat it as an amber warning light to start putting out feelers into what’s out there on the market   A 6 month contract is great for people who might be waiting for a new build , or having renovations done on their own property. For someone like yourself who wants security it might well be time for you to consider moving on.
    • Thank you. You still haven't given as much information. We need more. Please will you tell us who the retailer is – are they in UK or elsewhere? What was the item and what is its value? Did you declare the correct value? Or did the retailer declare the correct value? You say you paid by credit card – not a debit card against your bank account? Please read around all the Hermes threads on this forum. There is lots of good information there. In particular understand your rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
    • I am sorry, but without seeing the contract, and knowing what is on it or what effect it has, it is impossible to say.     
    • A16 BYN is the plates that the car was advertised with, and obviously the plate which I checked the mot history with, I also thought the same that the website maybe hadn't been updated with the most recent mot that the dealer had got done, I asked for the original plate number whilst doing the logging in to my bank account, to pay both the dealer and the shiply transporter. Bearing in mind I had told the dealer around 6pm that I would get the deposit sorted out when I put my son to bed, that gave him every opportunity to send me any pre contract details etc. Just over an hour later (son still wasn't in bed) asked for the address of where the vehicle was to be picked up from as I couldn't accept the quote for the transporter without that information. Less than an hour after that he whatsapped me asking if I still want to buy the car because he's getting enquiries from other interested parties and is telling them that he's sold the car to me (no deposit  paid as yet). I then replied a few min later having finally got my son to sleep.    Anyway between me sorting out the details and where to pick the car up from, log into my banking to pay deposits etc he'd  messaged me the original plate no... which I didn't see until after I'd done all the aformentioned.    I decided to check the history on that plate as like yourself I had been confused about the mileage, low and behold there was the most recent mot containing 5 advisories which were never mentioned to me. Another thing I can't really understand is the expiry date of the mot before that either and I did query all of this with the dealer, only to be told that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues...and that if I had checked the mot history I would have seen them, I explained I had checked the history on the plate in the advert as I had no knowledge of what the original plate numbers were and he told me that the most recent mot was under the plate in the advert. Most certainly the mot certificate he then sent me on whatsapp had the advertised plate on the certificate,  however, it wasn't showing up on the dvla page.    By this stage I was irate with him for several reasons, for not notifying me of the advisories and telling me that he had checked the dvla and the most recent mot was showing up on the advertised plates, I then screenshot the page with the expiry and this car is not mot'd information, and 2 for telling me that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues!    Had he simply said, the car is 18 years old you're going to expect to have some corrosion at some point, I'd have been a bit more tolerant at that stage. Apon checking the history on the original plates, it transpired it passed the last MOT previous to the most recent one on the same day the advertised plates ran out, I still haven't quite fathomed out what is going on regards to this. However the previous mot showed no corrosion issues and as it hadn't failed on that basis, I would get the panel beater sprayer mentioned in an earlier post to have a look at it, and sort the issues out re that, also the main reason I had the car delivered to my dad's address as that's also the area where the panel beaters business is.  
    • I had a similar thought, TJ. The Guardian has done an explainer of the rules as of yesterday.   Someone said that if the government, had retained public trust, they might not have needed stringent measures like this.   https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/sep/28/england-new-coronavirus-restrictions-explained

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Right thats it I am doing it on Friday 3/9/10

Hi All

 

I am giving up smoking this Friday, cause mum passed away last week due to smoking at the young age of 53, and I dont want to. It is a joint effort/competition between me, 2 sister in laws and two brothers on who can do it and last the longest. I have picked Friday cause its the funeral tomorrow and I will have a hangover after it, and cant smoke when hungover anyway.

 

Got some patches in preperation already for Friday, but I know I am gonna need lots of support from you guys - please!!!!

 

So I will be here on a regular basis with an update and to check out how you are all doing.

 

Thanks for reading

Sometimes it's that kind of kick you need ( sorry for your loss)

Ok, so I stopped along with the rest of the family members on Friday 3.9.10. I have not used any NRT and have not had a cig, HOORAY!!!!!! , but the rest of the family only lasted until Saturday which of course means I win the bet.

In the last few days I have cried, slept very badly, been so irritated I threw a coat hanger at my hubby (he doesnt care, he is just glad I am not smoking).

I am really gonna keep trying hard to keep going!!!

Good luck to everyone trying to give up!!!!!

Well done middleaged, i gave up in 1979 it was hard but i did it and have never smoked again my lungs are clean, it is hard and you will have bad days when you think "oh ive had enoguh im gonna start again" but if you do then you will only let yourself down no one else, as you get older your lungs dont work so well but smoking will make it worse, and it wont do your heart any good either keep it going think of all the money you will save, put it away in a box and see just how much you will have to buy yourself a new outfit or something else keep going dont give up

Well I have done 3 full weeks, very very proud of myself. Ordered a Kindle of Amazon to treat myself with the money I have saved - saving money on perfume cause I smell better. I can walk the dogs for longer without getting out of breathe, this is good cause I am eating more.

 

I just cant explain how fantastic and proud of myself I feel having done it for this short space of time.

Ive ben smoking for the best patr of 40 years. Been to the docs on various occasions, had chest x rays etc and always been told that am a non smoker and had the lungs and respiratory system of someone of 30. A few quacks have all told me that. So whilst still receiving this good news at 53 years old, I was still intent on packing it in. I found this product called www.clearsmoke.co.uk which is an e-cigarette with a nicotine cartridge which is the same amount as 20 fags. Ive ben using this for 3 days, and just need a drag when the addition calls. Its just like a real fag but withount the 400 or so chemicals that we all have been drawing into our bodies. The end of the fag glows when you drag it, it produces an imitation smoke which is water vapour. Im convinced that I will not retrun to the fags. It is the perfect compromise between going cold turkey and still getting the nictine buzz. The cartrdiges come in three strengths high medium low, so you can "ween" yourself accordingly. I have one packet of real fags still in sellophane wrapper and I look at these everytime I get out my clearsmoke box and say to the fags "I dont need you" Believe me they do work, but without the danger of real fags.

 

Im convinced that I can call myself a "non-smoker" of tobacco rpoducts, but I must confess that I will be on this for a while, but have vowed never to touch another fag again in my life. I hope that this short story can be an inspiration to other hard core somkers like me.

that sounds really good i have seen people with them, good on you for giving up, i as a past smoker found it hard but i wanted to give up so much i stuck to it, it wasnt easy, nicotine is a drug and like anything your addicted to its very hard to give it up, so well done to you all and keep going i think this page is helping many people its become a support group and thats what you all need is support your not on your own, well done again,xx

Try Clearsmoke. I stopped smoking instantly and been on these for a week now. Definately the best stop smoking product Ive ever tried. After 3 days I felt nso much better after the CO and chemicals had left the body. OK, with these you are still nicotine dependant, but without the dangers. For 7.95 trial offer then 23.00 per month, until you stop, its much cheaper than fags. I now know that I will never touch another fag in my life, Im 100% sure of that.
