    • dx100uk   do you think it might help if the OP went back to the dealer and argued the point about the dealer having to pay the vehicle recovery costs (in the event of a cancellation and no pre-contract info) by quoting to them the Motor Trade Ombudsman's view on the question from post #25?   I mean, the motor trade ombudsman is not generally well-known for being on the consumer's side, and yet there they are spelling out the OP's argument for her!   This could be backed up by (1) reiterating that the advertised mileage does not agree with the MOT history - at least I think that's the case; I haven't quite got my head round it yet, and (2) pointing out that the "sold for spares" bit is simply untrue.  She could wind up by suggesting that she thinks any ADR or court would find in her favour on all three of these points and ask if he wants to reconsider his position.   See if that shifts the dealer any further.   Assuming he won't move, then either go for ADR (is this binding and who does it?) as a first step or continue with legal claim.   Only contra-indications I see:  (1) I think the distance selling/extended cancellation argument is very unusual with a used car purchase and have no idea if it's likely to be successful.  BUT Advice Direct Scotland and Aberdeen TS seem to think it's possible(?) and so does the Motor Trade Ombudsman - so who knows.   (2) BankFodder did suggest several pages back that if the OP got the purchase price back that might be a result, but that would mean either writing off two sets of transportation fees or arguing separately about them.    
    • Hi. I posted on the facebook group about Hermes queries re: a parcel that Hermes said delivered but i didnt receive. It was a private sale of a mobile phone from a seller in Wales to me in Edinburgh.   The seller has stopped contact with me now so I cant get any help from them. Hermes are saying it was delivered but it wasn't.   I have got all copies of emails to and from the seller and to and from Hermes. A photo of the actual parcel that the seller sent me prior to posting.   There also seems to be a some confusion on the Hermes tracking info about which day it was actually delivered but either way I was in my house both prior and after the delivery.   There was no photo but it stated the driver got a signature. Not true cos it was a covid thing not to get signatures. No calling card to say it was left somewhere else or in a safe place. It just simply wasn't delivered.   I've been told to ask for GPS info in order to trace the delivery or driver. I cant even talk to a human or get a valid address to write to.   I sent an email to the CEO guy and still no reply. I've not reported anything to the police but I'm getting all sorts of contrasting advice to do this and not do that etc that im totally lost now.   If you read this David, please get back to me please. Much appreciated.   This happened in June/july so hope im not too late to still do something about it. It's just took this long to only get to this stage.

    • Noted! Hopefully there won't have to be another time though!     I did respond to the email, I just basically said that he cannot deduct any costs incurred for collecting / picking up the vehicle and if it heads down the route of ADR which is a total new concept of me having any evolvement with, that he would have to pay a refund/the cost of the car and the cost associated with the collection of the vehicle.    Apon further checking the legislation because he gave me no cancellation rights prior to the contract starting he is indeed guilty of an offence, which is the likelihood of what trading standards are dealing with in regards to his local TS contacting him.     
    • hi,     Just asking for some experience or knowledge.     I purchased a puppy on the 30th of august. On numerous occasions I was in contact with breeder and asked if the puppy showed signs of entropion.    I was told no.   On the 26th of August puppy had first jabs. And apparently their vets said none of the litter showed sign of entropion.    On collection of puppy I noticed he was covered in green mucus. The pen had dog muck spread in there so assumed it was just from pups playing and maybe getting it in each others eyes (poor hygeine on breeders part)   Anyways,   Asked breeder to wipe pup and we left       With in 3 hours we realised that the puppy wasn't well. He physically couldn't open his eyes and when we attempted to clean them his eyeballs weren't visible.    We phoned an out of hour vets and contacted the breeders immediately.     The pup was taken to the vets and we were informed he had a severe eye infection which was a result to entropion.    The vet bill came to around 900 after tacking and meds etc. I asked the breeder to cover the costs. They said no because their vets said their was no issues.     The state on this puppy my vets think he's suffered from birth.     And most certainly not 5 minutes before I turned up.      I've filed a small claims for the cost of the vets and the cost of the puppy.      Where do you think ill stand?    What type of evidence will the judge want to see. Thanks

    • 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

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.
