    • I have not done so yet no, as this is completely alien to me, this is why I have requested assistance from CA, if I had known that consumer direct wouldn't be able to help me in this regard I would have contacted them sooner.    I could post the response I had from the dealer however there probably isn't enough space on the server! It was quite the novel of nonsense. This would maybe give you an insight as to what I am dealing with though. That said, you probably already have a fair idea!
    • I agree with the what you say.   However from prospect of an honest client what can be done?   They were contacted in time, to tell them the food is crap. they wanted the investigations team to look into it and they asked for photos.   today they are saying T&C 6 says its between you and the resturant.   aka we got the commsion they got the money and you can fork off.   i can fork off yes. however i want to do something about it. this is crona, not worked..... march. things are tight.    
    • As has already been said here, whether it takes five minutes or longer, the case will be closed in your favour. Enforcement is going to be a completely different issue. When do you issue your claim? Have you drafted the particulars yet? You may want to post them up here so we can have a look and comment before you actually issue the claim
    • I would like to think not too, hindsight is a wonderful thing, and I did say before had this all been done in a face to face situation I wouldn't be in this current predicament. I mentioned that he said after his first initial call to me about the clutch/strut needing replaced however the car requires a completely new paint job and stripping of the 'wrap' (actually a badly attempted effort at spraying with a plasti dip paint) which wasn't apparent in any of the pictures, nor did he mention it. However, even this doesn't come into it with the 14 days to cancel as no reason has to be given.    I'm hopeful that it if goes before a judge and the fact it was sold on a trade sales invoice will be case closed in my favour in under 5 minutes. 
    • Well, perhaps pointing that out in the first place was a tad sarcastic, so, I generally reply to sarcasm with sarcasm.    Bottom line is, the reason distance sales open more avenues for a consumerrights etc is because people get duped by dodgy traders rather frequently.       I believe your own first response was, good luck with the 12 months extension, which is already in my favour, so a bit more savvy in knowing what you're talking about before you responded would maybe have prevented me from pointing out that yes, I do indeed have the 12 months extension.   My apologies you said it should be interesting. .. goodness knows what you meant by that.

    • 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 .

But haven't DCA's been trying this on on for years?

Before you criticise another man you should first walk a mile in his shoes. Then, when you criticise him, you'll be a mile away and he won't have any shoes on.

 

Don't get me confused with somebody knowledgeable by all those green blobs. I got most of them by making people laugh.

Interesting. Thanks Fred :)

Please note, I am not professionally qualified in legal matters. Should you have any doubts, you should contact a legal expert.

However, I can and will help with matters regarding payroll as I am fully qualified.

 

If I've helped in any way, you're welcome to click on my "star" and thanks, but I gain the most satisfaction simply by helping/reassuring :O)

The fraudsters got the name, address and date of birth right - that's three things more than the average DCA on a phishing trip.

The cops are investigating this one and it will be interesting to see how IJ squirm their way out of this. Any investigation by Plod is bound to see that debt collectors use this aggressive model from the off!

Loved the comment on the forum link that IJ are a friendly professional legitimate legal outfit.... legal in what respect one has to ask. Bearing in mind my previous dealings with IJ (the ones with the silliest name, next to Iqor) are the opposite.

 

However these scams seem to proliferate these days. There is one doing the rounds in Cardiff where they write to students telling them that as they are in debt their universitys won't let them graduate until they are out of debt, to do this they can 'register' their debts with the company who will clear their name... nasty lot indeed.

bet idiots and jokers thought they had landed a right little earner when they first started these collections only to find that the victims had been scammed and so were not liable, LOL
