    • this debt: MBNA Bank of Scotland Card debt- LInk got a CCJ - now want payment review - MBNA - Consumer Action Group and a barclaycard loan - did you ever send the a CCA in all these years.....when was it taken out?    
    • Welcome to the Forum. The PCN must be subject to Bye laws as the warning near the bottom of the PCN does not comply with the protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4 Under Section 9 [2][f[] of the Act it should say: (f)warn the keeper that if, after the period of 28 days beginning with the day after that on which the notice is given— (i)the amount of the unpaid parking charges specified under paragraph (d) has not been paid in full, and (ii)the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver ,the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; Their version states they are pursuing you as the driver [because of the Bye laws they cannot transfer the liability from the driver to the keeper] even though you are the keeper. Should it go to Court Judges do not accept that the driver and the keeper are the same person. Obviously on many occasions another member of the family may be driving instead of the keeper. Indeed anyone with a valid motor insurance policy is able to drive your car. if any of the three cars were not driven by the keeper they are not liable to pay the PCN only the driver is.  as long as they do not divulge who was driving those lovely people at Alliance haven't a hope of winning against them in Court. What a shame. However while those keepers who were not driving are in the clear all is not lost for the other keeper drivers. Alliance still have to prove who was driving which is difficult providing those keepers do not appeal.  It is quite often that on appeal the keeper may say "I entered the car park at....."  immediately giving away that they were the driver. Plus even if you appeal it won't be accepted as a] they lose £100 straight away and b] mostly all the major car parking companies are dishonest scrotes. In the meantime you will be on the receiving end of threatening letters from Alliance, unregulated debt collectors and fifth, sixth or even lower rated solicitors all trying to frighten the life out of you to cough up. They can all be safely ignored since if you don't contact any of them they don't know who was driving so have no information that the can use in Court to identify the driver. Some time in the future they may send you a Letter of Claim which must not be ignored. Just let us know and we will advise a suitable snotty letter to send them which will show that you are not afraid of them and are happy to turn up in court knowing that you will win. Sorry it was a bit long winded.

    • 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.

I have today received a letter from Red - Lowells wrote to me on three occasions recently and the last time (last week) they told me that it would be the last time and that I would be hearing from Red. It relates to an aleged debt with Halifax credit card. I have in the past wrote to Halifax & dealt with various DCA's I was questioning the validity of the CCA. It appeared to be an application form but Halifax has assured me that they have got it right. I told them that I was still not happy and that to my mind they have not produced a valid CCA. they eventually wrote back & said that they would not enter into any more discussions on the matter and that was their final word. This has been going on for over 4 years. there was a long long period of no activity but as I said it has recently reared its head again.

ed say I have to pay in full or enter an agreement or they will consider court action, apply to secure the debt against my house etc I assume all that is if they get a CCJ, and if my case meets certain criteria they say they could serve a STATUTORY DEMAND, (what is this) and and if I don't pay then petition for bankrupsy

A statutory demand is a form, downloaded off the internet, that gives you a certain amount of time to either pay a debt or have the demand set aside in court. If you fail to do either, then the party that served the demand can petition the court for your bankruptcy, in theory.

 

How much is the alleged debt for? As bankruptcy can only be brought for an amount of at least £750.

 

Have you ever scanned in and posted up the "agreement" that they claim is enforceable?

 

If not, then can you scan it in and post it up (after removing all personal information) so that we can have a look and see if it is, in fact, enforceable or not?

 

Cheers

Red are the Leeds Losers pet bully boys but they have absolutely no hold over you. The same goes for Hamptons (il)legal.

 

Red says you HAVE to. NAH! They cannot dictate anything to you. Only a Judge can do that and they won't go near a court without a fully compliant, signed agreement. They may try but with CAG's help, you could see them off.

Once we see the "agreement" we can better help.

Hmm! just looking at it, it say's that it's both an application form and a CCA, it looks to be in order. It's been a while since this was disputed and I lost track a bit, so assuming that it is in order should I try to make an arrangement to pay, or ask for a reduced full & final settlement, I don't have much spare income?

Whilst it is possible for a document to be both an application form and a credit agreement, in order for this to be the case, the "agreement" has to have all of the required prescribed terms within the document.

 

Hence, if you scan it in and post it up, we'll be able to have a look and offer our opinions as to whether or not the document is enforceable. You say this has been ongoing for 4 years, so the "agreement" must have been entered into before 2007 and, thus, the now repealed S127(3) Consumer Credit Act 1974 would still apply and would bar enforcement in court, if the document is not properly executed.

Have Halifax stated in writing that what they have produced is the enforceable Agreement as requested in your CCA, because, if they have, and it can be shown by you that it is non-compliant, then the following applies:

 

172:

Statements by creditor or owner to be binding

(1) A statement by a creditor or owner is binding on him if given under-

section 77(1), section 78(1), section 79(1), section 97(1), section 107(1)©, section 108(1)©, or section 109(1)©.

When was the last payment made on this alleged debt?

An application form can also be an agreement so long as all the KEY terms are within your document.

Separate terms can be in another document.

Having looked at both sides of the document you posted, I would have to say it's a good un.

I can see the APR, a statement saying a limit will be set, repayment terms and cancellation rights within the signature page

OK well unfortunately that agreement does look enforceable in my opinion as it does seem to have the necessary prescribed terms :(

 

Long shot, but you say that you made a payment 3 years ago.... I don't suppose there was a gap of six years before that within which you didn't make any payments?

No, the date of the agreement is 2005. So in the light of that what are the chances of a reduced full & FINAL, i HAVE AN OFFER FROM THEM TWO YEARS AGO SAYING THAT THEY WOULD ACCEPT 60% BUT IT WAS (sorry about the caps lock) time limited

No problems, I just wanted to try and exclude all posibilities before going in too deep....

 

There's no mention of PPI on those documents, but do you know whether you did have any or not?

As has previously been asked, are you aware of any (many) charges that have been applied to the account?

 

If the answer to the above is no, then I would personally look at maybe sending a letter offering 5 or 10% in full and final - making clear that the offer is one-time only and that if they don't accept it, the maximum I would be able to afford would be £1 per month.

 

Just my opinion though....

 

Cheers

Erm, why would anyone want to pay Red anything?

 

Before getting bogged down in CCA compliance and what not, can we please get something straight? THAT was with Halifax. THEY have flogged off the debt for pennies to Lowells/Red/Hampton etc, who are now issuing threatograms like confetti in the hope of making you pay up.

 

You may or may not have owed Halifax the money. It doesn't matter anymore, they've given up on you. Red, on the other hand, you don't owe a penny to, so you can tell them to go forth and multiply.

 

Instead of reading "stautory demand" and "repossession" and the big scary words, read what it says in between: "may" "might" "considering"... which means they won't.

 

If you really want to respond to them, I suggest you send something on the lines of:

 

Dear Leeds losers,

 

I owe you nothing. Zilch, nada, niente, a big fat el zippo.

 

If you think you can prove otherwise, take me to court, I need a day out at someone else's expense.

 

Yours, etc...

 

After that, watch in derision as they escalate and repeat the threats one after the other, and write in bigger, bolder, redder letters in the vain hope that you will suddenly get scared again.

 

Oh, and of course, don't give them your telephone number on the letter, and if they do try to call, refuse to clear security questions and put the phone down. That REALLY annoys them. :lol:

Hi

Welcome to The Consumer Action Group.

 

 

I am just letting you know that as you haven't had any replies to your post yet, it might be better if you post your message again in an appropriate sub-forum. You will get lots of help there.

 

Also take some time to read around the forum and get used to the layout. It is a big forum and takes a lot of getting used to.

 

 

Once you start to find your way, you will soon realise that it is fairly easy to get round and to get the help you need.

 

It can be bit confusing at first.

Please be advised that my time will be limited for the next few weeks.Thanks for your understanding.
