    • Starmer cosying up to right wing outliers and Brexitish (who seem to be just pointing the fingers away from themselves for the failures resulting from what they financed and promoted) to the outrage of huge swathes of the party is a real problem IMO - probably the main thing that could generate vast quantities of 'I'm not voting' among regulars   Looks like hes taking the core for granted and embedding himself in the 'they have nowhere else to go fallacy' - well they may decide the else is redundant and they simply have nowhere to go

    • I started paying her old council tax as they said they would jail her I managed to get those account details. We then got back together she moved in with me stopped me going to my house. Eventually let me back in I was there 4 days then the police showed up at 1am arrested me for 8 different offences. On the morning I was in custody she rang the letting agent and asked for the house to be changed to her sole name as I was in jail. The house was changed to her name I was made homeless. The bills she did not change to her name left them as occupier the utility companies then said I had to pay as there was lots more usage than an empty property. My solicitor said if I don't pay them I will be reported for it. It has since turned out that in her old property she didn't pay the bills. The electric bill she put in her daughter's name then cancelled the direct debit the council tax she never attempted to pay. Due to one of the accusations I have since been told I need to pay these bills even after getting emails saying I'm not liable for the bills. I have forwarded these on to the police and solicitors and had no reply. Other than you have to pay these bills. I'm also going to end up paying the bills where she lives now as once again they are not being paid. I can't go in to detail about the case as I'm due to be charged next week not sure what with yet but the police have told me I'm going to be charged.  My ex will not tell me nor can tell me about her debts as she doesn't want me to know how much debt she is in or has put her daughter in once she turned 18. I do not want to be paying her debts after what she has done to me.

    • 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.

Reliable Collections Ltd...........after speaking to them and asking for a copy of my signed credit agreement, they sent me two copies of an agreement, one with my details on - which I've never seen before and doesn't have my signature on, the other, exactly the same but in their name signed by somebody at their company.

 

Their letter states Please find enclosed a reconstituted 'true copy' of your clients credit agreement settling out the terms and conditions to which they agreed when the account was opened along with the current Terms & Condtions.

 

They say that when responding to a section 78 request, a lender does not have to provide a photocopy or other literal copy of the executed agreement nor provide a copy bearing or some other proof of the customers actual signature.

 

They are now threatening all sorts of action as I can't afford to pay what they are asking.

 

What should I do next please? Thanks.

This was a Simply Be account which was taken out at the start of 2007. I've scanned copies that they sent me but they aren't that clear, hope you can see them, if not I can e-mail them to you. Thanks

 

 

All I have blanked out is the hand written part which contained my name, Address and account number.

I'd be tempted to send them Scotts letter below & see what their response is;

 

Re: my request under the Consumer Credit Act 1974

 

Thank you for your recent letter sent to me, the contents of which are noted. I appreciate your quick response to my original letter. However, the reply received by me does not fulfil your requirements under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

 

The Act demands that I be supplied with a true copy of any properly executed credit agreement that exists in relation to the above account. I may ask for this on demand providing that a fee of £1.00 is paid. This fee was sent with my original letter.

 

My request remains outstanding. The items you sent in your reply, does not constitute a true copy of any credit agreement that may or may not have been signed by me on the opening of this account. It neither confirms that I am liable for any alleged debt to you, nor gives me any chance to evaluate whether any original agreement was ‘properly executed’.

 

I still require you to send me a true copy of the original credit agreement that you allege exists. As you will know, under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, a judge is not permitted to make any enforcement order unless the creditor can provide a true signed copy of the original credit agreement. This means that unless you can produce such an agreement, this alleged debt is not enforceable in law.

 

You had until XX/XX/2008 to provide me with the true copy I requested. You are now in default of my request. Any account I hold with you is now in legal dispute. Whilst the account remains in dispute, you are not permitted to ask for any payment, nor am I obliged to offer any payment to you. Furthermore, whilst the dispute remains, you are not entitled to charge any interest on the account, nor make any further charges to the account. Additionally, you are not entitled to register any information on this account with any credit reference agency.

 

To register information with a credit reference agency, you must have written consent from the customer to collate and share such information. This consent is given in the form of a signed credit agreement, so until you produce such an agreement, you may not do this.

 

The requirement for consent to share data is a clear requirement of the Data Protection Act 1998. any such attempts to share my data without my consent will be met with a complaint to the Information Commissioners Office

 

To sum up, I will not be making any further payments to you until you provide me with the document I have requested. Whilst you remain in default of my request, you are not permitted to take any action against this account. This includes adding further charges and passing any information to the credit reference agencies.

 

If you intend to send a reconstituted copy of the CCA you must declare the reason why it has been reconstituted and if the original exists and in what form (microfiche) etc.

 

Should you not have any signed credit agreement in relation to this alleged debt, please confirm this in writing to me.

 

 

I look forward to your reply.

 

Yours faithfully

Print name do not sign

Hi unreliable collections did the same with my wife though they did not even check if the address was correct as we had moved since opening the account, they entered the new address on the reconstructed agreement when challenged they closed the account and that was it. Also send them a copy of the received reconstructed agreement letter below.

 

Dear Sirs,

 

Thank you for your letter dated nn/nn/nnnn.

You have chosen to respond to my CCA request by providing a reconstituted agreement. While this may satisfy a CCA request, it is not enforceable in a court of law.

 

I now request you to confirm that you actually hold a copy of the original signed agreement. If you do not hold an agreement, then I require you to confirm this, or if you do hold the original signed Agreement then I would ask for you to advise me in what form.

 

I can think of no valid reason why you should provide a reconstituted version when you could have simply photocopied the original-if it exists.

 

I would remind you that the OFT state that creditors should not imply or state that an enforceable agreement exists if that is not the case.

 

I look forward to receiving your response within 14 days if I do not I will then consider the alleged debt to be unenforceable at that time.

 

Dpick
