    • I will put some money into the coffers on this site as its well deserved. 
    • Hi all,    I have read all the threads about CLI (Credit limits international) regarding fines from minor traffic offences in Florence Italy but I wonder if anyone actually faced some serious issues by ignoring the letters? Did any bailiffs knocking on the door, any court hearings, credit scores affected etc?   In my case, it is for a traffic offence in Florence and entering a traffic limited zone in 2015. CLI claims that their client is the Firenze Municipale and they are collecting the debt on their behalf. However, I have (as many others) never received the first or any notification from the Italian traffic police itself.  I called them and as stated in many online websites - they confirmed that the final notification is sent by registered post and needs to sent within 360 days of when they received my contact details by the rental company. The most odd thing is that the Firenze Municipale also mentioned that they hold no records of old fines so that makes me really wonder how they can act on behalf of the police when they don't have any records of it? Also worth mentioning is that, there are many errors on the original fine CLI has sent me, there are slightly different amount stated on each page.    If they have bought the debt than it would be fraud by claiming that they act on behalf of a client.   I know many are saying to ignore it and they have no authority to take further legal actions, however they are a member of CSA (note I have spoken to FCA and they confirmed they do not regulate traffic offences so they do not need to be registered there) so I would think they can enforce it.    Does anyone have any experience and how far did CLI take it? I have no problem paying the original fine as I never was notified but they are claiming more than 4 times and I doubt you can negotiate.    Thanks!    
    • Fined for exceeding the free parking period.   I can’t found the form the other posters have filled out with details of fine etc but it happened on the 3rd September issue date 7th September. I received the fine on the 16th September but this is delayed, I imagine, due to my car being a car hire so was alerted to it my.    Shopped at Lidl, have proof of shopping with my Apple Pay but not a physical receipt.    Looking back with Google maps there are signs saying customer parking but no obvious terms.   Having read some posts on here, I have written to the CEO, included proof of shopping etc and am waiting for their reply.    Feeling hopeful but also anxious I will end up having to deal with Athena and they seem like hideous people to deal with.    Any advice greatfully received.    Attached fine    Email I sent to CEO (havehad no confirmation that they have received the email) christian.haertnagel@lidl.co.uk (hope this is the current ceo) below.     Dear Christian,   I hope this finds you healthy and well in this unprecedented time.   I have recently moved to SE9 from NW3 and having been a religious online grocery shopper, spending large amounts with Ocado, please see attached document. Since moving to SE9, having recently bought a car, the current financial climate & having more options for our grocery shopping, we decided to start shopping at Lidl in Eltham having heard good things.  We have gone in there a few times now and, so far, we are pleased with the produce we come home with & the customer service experience. Also this branch has a lot of house hold goods, clothing, gardening and recently DIY equipment, lots to look through.   Our visit on the 3rd September, we must have taken longer than we realised. We were there with friends and they were doing a big shop, us not so big this time and afterwards we even signed up for Lidl Plus, please see attached document, so we were really pleased.   Today I was shocked to receive a, very un, Civil Parking Charge Notice for being in the car park 21 minutes over the the 90 minute free parking, please see notices attached below. We had no idea this free parking restriction even existed and there centrally wasn’t any adequate signage to alert us in our arrival.   Please find proof of our purchase attached, please note the time of the purchase 16.38 and the notice states we departed the car park at 16.42.   We trust that this will be addressed, so that your customers can park, at least, knowing what the parking terms are before they choose to park and shop in your store.   As valued & loyal customers this is unfair and we kindly ask that you tell Athena to cancel this charge.   Thank you for your time in addressing this matter.

    • Anyway, about time it was said straight   The Governments' claimed 'Capacity figures aren't 'interpretations,' they are outright lies Capacity by definition is "the ability to receive or contain" - and its collapsing at little more than 80,000 a day at best. There may be 120,000ish 'tests' - but Governments own figures as stated quite clearly state 81,000 people tested a day (is that best, or average?)   So by definition and example (artificially holding back results to boost a single days figures aside) - 80,000ish a day would seem to be the actual true capacity of the UK's testing system to test people - even if certain parts of it MIGHT theoretically be capable of more

    • 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 .

Can somebody explain what this means, maybe give dates on how this would work, based on a loan taken Today 24th May..

 

You have the right to withdraw from the credit agreement within 14 calender days after you receive written confirmation that we have executed the agreement. If you withdraw after receiving credit, you must repay the credit within 30 days and repay any interest due on the credit.

Hi there

 

It is basically a 14 day cooling off period. So you can back out of the credit agreement any time up to 14 days after they execute the agreement. So, let us say you buy some goods on credit, say from a sales rep who visits your house. You take their finance option. You have 14 days to opt out of the finance. This doesn't affect your contract with the supplier of the goods, you would just have to pay them yourself without using the finance package.

 

If you been given the finance i.e. some money under the agreement, you must repay it within 30 days plus some interest for the privilage of having used that money on loan for that short period of time.

So if I was for example to cancel on 14th day, do I have 30 days from that date to repay the credit + interest for the period I hade the credit for...or is it 30 days from the date I received the credit - regardless of when within the 14 days I cancelled?

Thanks the paragraph in my original post is from my agreement, however when calling hsbc they state that can cancel within 14 days and loan needs to be paid back within 14 days - on the day of cancellation

The wording taken from your agreement is

 

"You have the right to withdraw from the credit agreement within 14 calender days after you receive written confirmation that we have executed the agreement. If you withdraw after receiving credit, you must repay the credit within 30 days and repay any interestlink3.gif due on the credit."

 

which to me reads that you have 14 days to withdraw and 30 days from that date. I don't think they have worded it very well. Personally, I wouldn't rely on info given in a phone call to a bank!

Well to my mind you have a written document on which you should be able to rely OR you have some heresay from a phone operator.

 

If you want to be absoluteley sure, why not pop into the local branch of the "World's Local Bank" and clarify it. Whatever they say get them to put it in writing.
