    • The agreement started 11/02/2019  for 47 monthly hire payments   Threat-o-gram : We are instructed on behalf of Hyundai Capital UK Limited T/a Hyundai Finance Contract Hire.  This is inaccurate, as on my hire agreement it says - Owner Santander Consumer (UK) plc trading as Volvo Car Financial Services. Hyundai must be who this other persons agreement is with.   The only will is: Should you fail to make payment of the outstanding bablnce of £5,000, or alternatively provide realistic payment proposals within the next 30 days, we are instructed to issue County Court proceedings against you for the balance outstanding. Such proceedings will also include claim for costs.   Yes I still have my agreement. 
    • Hi M10,   Compared to MANY other cases we see here, a refund of 80% is a decent offer in the circumstances.   Take it and get yourself a new item.   Far better than Very and Apple each denying responsibility and passing the buck, and you being stuck in the middle for months with no help.
    • thanks for all that.... yes interesting. you handed the car back in nov 2020, how long was the lease agreement for and when did it start?   if you read the threat-o-gram carefully it doesn't say WILL anything. who are stated as DWF's client please ? and have you still your copy of this agreement?

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi ,

 

Im currently fighting a case with a private parking organisation, I never recieved a fine from them intially and then they sent me a second series of fines for 90.00.

Ive appealed against the decision however they have refused to remove the fine as they have sighted they have a picture of my car parked there, however ive sent two letters now advising I have never recieved a fine from them they issued a picture of the back of my car in that area and that they know all of there attendants issue fines... however I have asked them for evidence that a fine was placed on my car and they now say there attendants dont take photos but believe they have a strong case as I was in that area, Ive never disputed i wasnt there just i have never recieved a parking fine at all and feel its unjust to come out of the blue when it wasnt even placed on my car.

 

would anyone be able to please advsie me on this please?

Private |Parking Company..... you should not even be giving them the time of day.

 

Stop communicating with them in any shape or form and completely ignore anything they send to you

As a private parking compnay do they have any further rights to proceed if the this fine is not paid? ive already issued letters disputing this case twice

 

 

 

Dunno why you have entered into dispute with these people. You are taking them too seriously! There's NO FINE!

 

Read the sticky threads on ..............., including Watchdiog and all:

 

 

You will soon realise why disputing was a waste of time. Do not reply to them again, let them send out the usual threatopgrams

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

If you can show me where the CAG stickies include the letter-chains pictures (which another site starting with 'P' is more than happy to have as a sticky even though it links to a certain 'M' site) I will gladly point people to that CAG resource.

 

And have I also missed the CAG sticky with the Watchdog video?

 

Those are the two most useful links that I wanted this OP to see, maybe I have missed them on here?

 

If I have then apologies but I have never seen an info forum website that gags any mention of other info forum websites...can I really not give people the best links?

Heres is the link to the main forum & sticky area where the parking details are

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/forumdisplay.php?88-Parking-Traffic-Offences

 

 

My point exactly. You have just confirmed what I said, and yes of course I had double-checked the stickies first before typing the above!

 

AFAIK the stickies here do not show the Watchdog (May 2010 with Tim Cary) link and do not show the letters that PPCs send out. I was trying to help the OP with some links that most newbies on the other 2 forums (like it or not, this is one of 3) find to be the best.

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks anyway but these links tell me nothing I don't already know and IMHO would not be the simplest way to explain to a newbie what happens. The letter-chain pictures tell even a PPC novice what to expect and the Watchdog youtube link always gives newbies the confidence to know they can safely ignore it (a Watchdog-endorsed Solicitor being a particularly believable/trustworthy source to reinforce advice on an anonymous forum).

 

I am just trying to help the OP and post the links I did all the time on other forums, I have never been gagged before (didn't even use the S-word!) and still no-one has shown me CAG's version of the 'Watchdog' and 'PPC letter-chains' links.

 

If those important links are missing on CAG parking board stickies could they be considered for adding please?

What a typical knee-jerk response. If resources helpful to users are available elewhere but not on CAG, then they don't exist

Apparently not! Many thanks for your support.

 

But there's a big world wide web out there and much of the info is very useful, even if it means - dare I say it?! - a link to another forum. Can't believe that the most useful links that do not (yet ) appear in C.A.G. stickies are banned??

That's precisely what the letter is designed to do - to appear as if they're upping their game. The reality is it's just more of the same, so continue to ignore.

See now this is why I wanted to give this poster the best links earlier (see a few posts above). Then he/she would have known that debt-collector threatograms are standard guff that can just be ignored, and he would have known to expect the letters rather than have been worried like this.

 

With respect to the mods, - is this what CAG wants? Partial answers with no useful links (CAG stickies do not help with PPC tickets I am afraid, whereas the other 2 main forums cross-reference each other without problems, showing the Watchdog clip and PPC letter-chains).

 

I wanted to show him 'PPC letter chains, what to expect' which is a pictogram thread but it's on another forum. If my link had been allowed to stay put caljak would have been helped earlier.

 

caljak, please Google 'PPC letter chains, what to expect' and click on the link to a certain forum in another place, by a certain Martin Lewis.

 

 

 

 

 

P.S. This is silly. This poster is crying out for a link.

Yes you do need to take an action and that is pick up the letter and take it to the waste bin

 

The debt collector letters are part of the game and is more than the likely the PPC wearing a different hat or sitting at a different desk.

 

Once they realise you have not fallen for these they will probably send a solicitors letter in reality the same PPC but a different hat and different desk so you will have a lot more trips to the bin over the coming weeks maybe months

 

PPC invoices are becoming a part of life as these wretched companies now seem infest just about every store car park with petty rules designed to catch the unwary and make them pay an unjustifiable amount for breaking them by sending out invoices dressed up to look like a official council or police pcn/fpn. For more effect they will use red ink and even capital letters but this does not change the fact that they are waste paper and unenforceable

 

They rely on a percentage of people believing they have genuine 'fine' and not realising that it is just an invoice and paying up without thinking

 

Have never paid any PPC invoice most of which had had photos of a car and enlargement of a number plate and on the few occasions they have phoned pretending to be a solicitor they have been invited to take me to court and guess what - it has never happened and never will because they know full well that they would lose

 

Follow the advice given and ignore everything - you are one of the lucky ones and have not become a victim of these con artistes
