    • Yes you can.....you appear to have a good understanding of the basic credit consumer law.....possibly impress the judge that you went it alone...plenty of Fast Track cases been fought and won by litigants here on CAG.   If you have the evidence...the argument....and the personality to convey .....go for it...think of the fees you will save not paying the barrister.
    • Hi FTMDave They initially requested £140 within 14 days. This has now gone to £182 after the initial debt collection firm took over (now back with CEL   The carpark had two options, pay-by-app and cash, we had n cash hence using the easier app. The app in the playstore has shocking reviews, im not the only one.   I wasnext going to get 'their hand' sent to me fromt he data controller, sending the following:   Dear Sir or Madam   Subject access request ( Data Protection Act 2018 / General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) )   Please supply the data about me that I am entitled to under data protection law  relating to myself. - All photos taken - all letters/emails sent and received, including any appeal correspondence earlier - A PDT machine record from 23/11/2019  of payments - A record of online payments made using the Google Playstore APP that day - all data held, all evidence they will rely on, and - a full copy of the PCN, NTK - a list of all PCNs outstanding against me and/or this VRN, and I will remind here that any claim must be for all PCNs, not several separate claims.   If you need any more data from me to confirm my identity please let me know as soon as possible.

    • 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

Yes that’s the sort of thing I was thinking of. I would not go as far as saying it is pointless complaining and mentioning the 2008 regs to the creditor, in so much as it reminds them of what could happen if they continue to abuse the system.

It takes the OFT to act unfortunately and prosecute someone, before you can make an effective threat.

Simply, as it stands I think the creditor could get away with saying that the failure to comply was a one off and refer the debtor to Carey.

You would have to show that the creditor’s policy involved these shenanigans in order to get anyone to enforce.

HI

 

Yes there is a lot of information on the thread. I haven't really looked into this much so forgive me if this has been gone ove before.

Regarding the practical use of the legislation, i notice that several posts mention "Criminal sanctions" for breach of the act. Could you elaberate for me, are these sanctions itemised within the act itself, and who can set off the enforcement proccess, the cosumer, the oft?.

Also do these breaches have to be indemic( ie. something that effects many consumers) or can it be an individual act against an individual consumer?

 

Peter

As someone who is interested purely in the PRACTICAL EFFECTS of legislation rather than how/why/if they should work as it appears they do, it seems obvious that CPUTR 2008 is a currently VERY POWERFUL TOOL at getting OC's and DCA's to SHUT UP if they can't PUT UP. Many contributors to P1's other thread have testified that after a CPUTR 2008 the OC or DCA goes away - to me that's good enough and I'm not really bothered about whether a debt "still exists" or even if it's still "enforcible" or not - only that it ISN'T enforced - and I'll then simply await SB kicking in.

 

In other words I'm not too bothered about WINNING against OC's and DCA's - just interested in NOT LOSING - and in the simplest most practical way to ensure this!

 

Hopefully your contribution will not give them some food for thought that they have been scared by this CPUTR 2008 a little too easily - and be encouraged to try to get your theories tested in court - or use them to scare more of us into just paying up? I'm sure that was/is not your intention?

 

Finally in answer to your questing about "indemic breaches" I think the track records of most (all?) OC's and DCA's in failing to issue compliant DN's for well over 30 years (since 1974 until very recently) is ample evidence that indemic breaches DO occur in the largest (and most "reputable" ????) of creditors!

Hi Peter,

 

Indeed the sanctions are embodied in the Act itself.

 

Here is a link to the CPUTR 2008 http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukdsi/2008/9780110811574/contents

 

A 5 minute read at most! Read Part 2, then Part 3 s8-12, finally Part 3 s13 states:

 

Penalty for offences

13. A person guilty of an offence under regulation 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 shall be liable—

 

(a)on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum; or

 

(b)on conviction on indictment, to a fine or imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or both.

 

as usual with legislation s13 relates to s8-12, s8-12 relate to Pt 2.

 

Hope this clarifies things. To my knowledge, similar to the newish EU Regulations which are also fairly powerful at the moment, it has not been tested in court and I think (it is only think) I remember reading that a private individual cannot take a company to court under this, but the FOS or OFT can and it is this that I believe is making the DCA's wary.

This is a difficult one - it's new (ish) legislation and we need to see cases to prove how it works. (Or doesn't!)What we need is educated discussion on the issues it raises - not to give the other side the arguments that they need, (I'm sure they don't rely on CAG to do that for them) but to ensure anyone attempting to rely on these are not 'done in' at the final hurdle by a query raised by the other side that they aren't prepared for and can't argue against as they've 'gone in blind'.This isn't new, as there was a point in the bank charges 'campaign' where folks were asked not to take claims further until certain, underlying issues were identified and dealt with, thereby furthering their chances of success.Unless we have some rich consumer champions amongst us, I think this is the best way to go.What we can't do is having folks putting forward opinions and views and then saying that a) they don't have any cases to back it up, as there aren't any, or b) not backing up that opinion or view with some reasoning - right or wrong. Only by discussion within the forum rules can we overcome these issues.I don't think either PB or BD are right or wrong, it's about how either or both argue their points so those viewing this can make an informed decision on balance of those opinions.I, for one, have seen no breaches of forum rules here, but feel free to report posts that you consider are such and they will be dealt with appropriately, as usual.

Always happy to help where I can!

The fact that Law Commssion are consulting on locus standi implies that there is no enforcement powers invested in an indidvidual...indeed ThE CPUTR defines the scope of authorities invested within this entitlement..I think at least OFT and Trading Standars so far!!!!

Car

 

I'm not so sure that some CAGGERs are not (presumably unwittingly) actually helping the other side and I do believe CAG is a valuable source of intelligence to them - how do we explain the vast numbers of guests otherwsie?

 

Another unwanted consequence of intense detailed argument (esepcially when based largely on as yet unproven theory and suppositions) is that threads get VERY big and over complex.

 

In a nutshell I think PriorityOne has identified an (almost) "golden bullet" which (currently at least) seems to get the OC or DCA to "shut up" if they can't "put up".

 

For me (and I suspect the vast majority of CAGGERs) this is all we need to know - unless and until the "other side" comes up with an antidote (preferably of their own making) - as currently it seems a very easy and low cost way of kicking threats etc. into touch - hopefully long enough to allow SB to kick in.

 

No doubt as this weapon grows in effectiveness (as with the bank charges, PPI, dodgy DN's and TN's etc.) it will, through time, get tested in court - probably with varying results. When we have evidence of this then - yes of course - let's fully test out the pros and cons - and attempt to understand the court's "logic" with a view to strengthening our own subsequent cases.

 

Until then I think we should just fire off P1's golden bullets and watch the blood spill with relish. This is JMHO - no claims that I'm definitely right - but I'm pretty sure I'm not (yet) wrong!

 

This is definitely the (current) route I'll be using for any creditors who get heavy in the forerseeable future.

Hi

Being new to his particular legislation, I have two main questions. First does this work and secondly how does this work.

To not ask these questions seems to to be just burying your head in the sand. We have seen ample examples of the effectiveness of this practice, some mentioned above.

Indeed if I may stray off topic for a minute, it may be a predilection to this kind of behaviour that gets some into trouble in the first place.

Curently I am not agreeing or disagreeing with any one, I have no opinion. I have not collected enough data to form one.

When I do I will let you know of course then we can argue it. Seems sensible to me.

There you go Peter. I did post a balanced post earlier, but it has vanished! Mods?

 

What I basically said was that some people (like me and you) like to go into detail and read the legislation and all we can find about it; Others are happy to know that at the moment it scares DCA's away and don't mind why. This is fair enough in my opinion at the moment.

 

However, as time goes on, and case law builds up, the detail will become increasingly important in my opinion. As I see it, and I don't believe this is giving arguments to DCA's, the reason it is so powerful at the moment is that nobody wants to be one of the first few test cases.

 

I wold also caution, and I suspect P1 would agree with me on this, not to rely entirely on CPUTR 2008. There is plenty of other, already proven legislation, that will see off a DCA. There's also other underused legislation such as the EU Directives that Victoria Siempre and I keep banging on about which is a powerful piece of legislation that many seem to ignore.

Hi yes i agree particularily about the points regarding the EU regs.

 

I have cut an pasted most of the new requiments into a copy of the 74 it is supprising how much it ammends certain sections you dont see it properly until it is in context.

 

I think it is important that some of us understand these things, i do not believe tha ignorance can be an ally in any circumstance. In my 60 years i have never seen proof to the contrary just affirmation.

Several earlier responses seem to have vanished but some (perceived?) personal digs which prompted them initially sadly remain.

 

I take issue with comments/allegations that any of my posts will have done any other CAGGER harm.

 

I shall continue to drive my car without ever opening the bonnet to analyse why it goes without needing any horses to pull it - and also will never try to get to grips with the Bernouilli principle before getting into a plane. If it ain't broke - don't fix it - and certainly don't hand a spanner to the other side, or hit an ally with it. So far CPUTR doesn't seem to need "fixed" and it seems to work just fine.

 

You make a very valid point about other legislation - like from EU etc. I totally agree CPUTR is not the ONLY weapon - but currently it seems pretty powerful - almost like a Cruise missile (which I actually do understand a bit about - with it being based on rocket science) - but I won't try to bore you all with any explanation, theory or questions on just how it works!

I'm not going to ask you to explain how a bumble bee flies - I'm just happy it does!.

 

Your second point is the nub of where we differ. I am NOT on CAG to debate - but to get (and give) real life practical information on reducing indebtedness by whatever means possible (banks don't do morality - and neither do I any more in dealing with them) - and I'm equally happy even when I don't understand why/how the methods used actually work - as long as they do work.

 

I suspect most drivers - and airline passengers - subscribe to a similar pragmatic approach - but please feel free to air your own views, opinions and knowledge - provided you are sure it cannot harm any fellow CAGGER by giving knowledge or succour to the other side!

**sigh** Was just thinking we were getting somewhere.Posts were removed for quoting unapproved posts - too many to inform users of individually, apologies for that. Some times posts that remain don't make sense, so are unapproved along with the originals.My last post was clearly not subtle enough, so here goes again.Stick to forum rules, or posts will be unapproved and repeat offenders will be dealt with appropriately. If you think that posts are in breach of rules, please report them, so site team can review them and action as appropriate.

Apparently not. Breaching CPUTR seems to be an effective threat in itself and although I'll admit to not being overly bothered about what companies may or may not be thinking when presented with a request for clarification under CPUTR, I'm assuming that they don't want to run the risk of attracting an investigation by telling lies; whatever form that investigation may takes.

 

I have been referred to Carey, yes..... but once it's been pointed out that Carey was a Claimant and that I had no intention of bringing legal action myself, so what was their point....?.... it went very quiet.

Problem with this logic is, it prescribed blindly following advice without understanding it.

It seems to me that someone has to understand the issues in the first place in order to give it. so with respect that does not make sense.

My understanding of the function of this forum is to provide self help, to share information and experiance, and let others use their wit to decide on what is the best course of action, for them.

 

Blindly folliowng anothers course of action is not pragmatism in my view it is lunacy.

 

Anyway back to the subject. Perhaps someone will start a thread called"Why knowledge is a waste of time". Problem is subscribing to it may teach someone something which would be counter productive.:roll:

I shal restrict my self to analysing thie effectivenes of these regs if you dont want to read it then i suggest hand over eyes and go La La La.

I think this is a case of P1's experience of what actually happens in practice trumping PB's theory of what might happen?

 

I'll go with experience over theory every time!

Can you please re-read my post and quote where I offered (or sought) advice ? I seek and give information based on real life experience - not advice based on assumed (or known) knowledge.

 

BD

 

PS Can we please now drop this "exchange" as it is not adding any more information to the thread and you seem to be descending into insulting behaviour yet again?

 

To set an example I shall NOT respond any further even if you decide to do so - but shall report any posts I perceive to be offensive.

Problem with this logic is, it prescribed blindly following advice without understanding it. With respect Peter, do you seriously believe that everyone has understood the ins and outs of a CCA request (for example) before making one? CAGgers have been blindly following advice on here for years; whether it's to re-claim bank charges, defend claims, challenge inadequate info. received from a SAR request and/or a host of other scenarios.

It seems to me that someone has to understand the issues in the first place in order to give it. so with respect that does not make sense.

My understanding of the function of this forum is to provide self help, to share information and experiance, and let others use their wit to decide on what is the best course of action, for them. That is what we're doing.

 

Blindly folliowng anothers course of action is not pragmatism in my view it is lunacy. Then I am a lunatic.... :madgrin:... because most of our experiences in life involve following the advice of someone else at some point, especially when there is nothing to lose by doing so.

Please start such a thread if you feel the need.... If you want to point out how ineffective the regs. are, then feel free to do that as well.... providing you also acknowledge the success that some people have experienced to date by quoting them.

So far, so good.... although I am mindful that nothing in life is completely foolproof. I have issued a recent request to a particularly litigious company/individual and will let you know the outcome as soon as I have it.
