    • 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

    • 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 everyone I've taken up everyones advice on this forum and have recieved 5 letters for parking in brewery wharf by ukcps. 2 of the letters are from a company called court procedings lt in oxford street london. the latest letter says final notice before county court action and it says your non payment will result in the immediate commencement of county court action which could result in high financial loss and reducing my chances of getting a mortgage.

I have not contacted anyone from the companies in any way but a solicitor freind of mine said I should contact them please can someone tell me what to do as I'm getting pretty worked up about this.

please help me

 

thanks in advance any help appreciated

Carry on ignoring. Their letters are designed to scare you.

 

Court Proceedings Ltd his new on the block and their name is hilarious. Ask yourself why you have had 5 letters and they still haven't taken you to court.

 

CP Ltd have never set foot in a court in their life.

Did they miss out the 'No' from the front of their name when they registered the company.

You are just in the final stages before they give up and this is almost their last ditch attempt to extract money from you

 

We have all had these silly letters and they are meaningless as the first ones they send

 

Even when requested to I have yet to have a PPC take the court route as they are well aware their chances of winning are around zero

 

Be brave - ignore

Court Proceedings Ltd. The name never fails to make me laugh. Everything they do is designed to intimidate you, particularly the 'pay up or we will ruin your life' letters. Stand firm and leave these low-lifes in the gutter where they belong.

The title of this thread should be changed as it is very misleading.

Sorry about the misleading title but I read in a different thread that companies only use language like might and not will take you to court and mine said will so this is what concerned me. Thanks for the replies You have put my mind at ease and I will continue to ignore. I have also decided to report them to trading standards for harrasment as they are using a premium rate phone number for their contact details which I believe is unreasonable. I don't think I can change the thread title can I? if so I will do.. thanks again everyone for all the help

Anybody can threaten to take anybody to court.

 

Doesn't mean they will though. Never seen a debt collection company take anyone to court for a parking company. The charge is so hard to fight for, even without having the extra layer of how the debt has been transferred from one company to the other.

 

Carry on ignoring.

 

Is your solicitor friend involved in contract law? They tend to have different specialities.

Hi AL27 no my solicitor friend specializes in something compeletely different he just said you should never ignore a letter telling you you are being taken to court as if they do take you to court it will look bad on you. I have ignored the 2nd court letter letter now so will let everyone know if it goes any further but I doubt it will after reading the advice on these forums. cheers

There is a big difference between the words "may" and "will". Even then their hollow threats never come to anything. There is one debt collector that repeatedly writes to people saying they will visit their house "within 72 hours" but they never turn up.

What rubbish, you should publish your solicitor friends name so we know who NOT to go to if we ever need legal advice. I notice civil matters is not his area, I suggest he sticks to things he knows about

Hi papsykes,

 

I became acquainted with these [problematic] over a year ago & completely ignored their rubbish from the outset.

 

They gave-up after five increasingly threatening letters, and the same will go for you too.

Don't ever weaken & fall for & let them take you for a mug.

I can't see the point in that. It is clear that this is not his area. He might be just the guy you need if you get in trouble with the old bill or want to set up a trust fund for your kids! :lol:

Have one of these DC missives in front of me stating that in the absence of payment it will referred back to the PPC for approval to apply for a County Court Judgement against me however they neglect to say that it has to go to court first (this costs them money) and they have to win (impossible) and a CCJ will only happen if they win and I do not pay

 

When I write to someone that requires a reply I always enclose an SAE - if the PPC wanted a reply they would have enclosed one - they didn't - end of the story. Same for the phone number - why should I pay out a premium rate or use a local rate number. If they expect me to phone then I expect a free phone number

 

They will only ever get a response (other than the odd silly letter) when and if I receive properly served court documents or they phone me and I can keep them hanging on for as long as possible

 

I have requested they take me to court several times during their phone calls but so far they have failed to accomodate me

 

Ignore everything except properly served court papers

Generally, yes. But 'looking bad' doesn't affect the facts of the case. The judge makes his judgement on cold, hard fact, not who ignored what.

 

For any normal case I'd say reply, but when you're dealing with a shady company that just sends out threats, replying only encourages them to pester you for longer.

 

Remember this is a [problem] at the end of the day.
