    • Unbelievably I can't find it, I will have a really good look for it when I have a bit more time on my day off this week. AS a side note, I emailed them offering a token payment to settle the account and avoid court action, which unsurprisingly they have declined. However there reply states:  A Claim was accepted on 19 June 2024 which means we cannot set up a payment plan just yet. You should have received a claims pack from the Court. We would ask for this to be completed with your offer of repayment and returned to either ourselves or the Court.  You have 21 days for this to be completed and returned in order to avoid a Judgment by Default. This means we would need to receive this by 10 July 2024. I was under the impression it was 19 days from date on the claim form. which was the 14th, which would be 3rd July. Could I use this against them as it seems like they are giving me false information in the hope of getting a judgement by default?
    • when is your mediation? honestly I don't think that the ups case is much use actually because it concerns third party rights BUT  as we know now the contract for packlink is direct and there are no third parties rights at all so you don't need it, and frankly the really helpful one will be from @occysrazor case but I don't know if they have it. expect evris mediation to be a complete fail yes
    • jk2054: I have ensured there's not reference to the third party rights in the updated letter of claim. BankFodder: thanks for the edits and information. I understand the Consumer Rights Act prohibits EVRi's attempts to avoid liability in their duty and care of accepting to deliver my parcel according to Section 57.  They have accepted to carry my parcel even though I have identified it as a laptop and specified the value so they must take reasonable care to deliver the parcel or face the consequences if it were lost as it seems to be in my case! I hadn't originally referenced Section 72 because of EVRi didn't offer any insurance whether free or for me to purchase. I understand that if I were to have any sort of insurance from EVRi then Section 72 refer to the rules of such secondary contracts. Is this section indicating that the insurance may reduce my rights or remedies to recourse to full compensation if I had been offered and purchased such insurance?  Is it beneficial to include this in the letter of claim (and subsequently reference both Section 57 and 72 in the MCOL?) although it might not be pertinent in my case?  Perhaps this is just to reinforce that in general EVRi and other couriers are taking such liberties with their customers so it is to send a message that they are breaching both sections? I made a few minor edits to the letter of claim but mainly grammatical type stuff and to keep consistent font, black colour, but the edits you provided are included and are extremely helpful and are putting me in a good position to email and post the letter to EVRi this week and get the ball rolling. Thanks. Evri letter of claim.pdf
    • Thank you for getting back to me I will do my best to get hold of the claim form tomorrow  When I spoke to MCOl on friday I asked for the extra 14 days so penty of time Onlymeagain
    • Hi, From everything I've read about how EVRi handle mediation, and given I intend not to budge on my position, I am preparing for court. Having read the the full WS and court bundl @occysrazor kindly supplied, I am wondering what value adding the Jamie Bradbury v UPS Limited has?  Obviously this case was lost by the claimant and the ruling clearly goes against the Farooq case and more recently @occysrazor's.  Is the case to include it simply to showcase my argument as being well rounded? Interested in your opinions. Many thanks, Sam

    • 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.

Hi all

 

At work we're having some difficulty with a supplier.

 

Today, I received a recorded delivery letter at home. I looked at it before I signed for it, saw who it was from and refused it.

 

Questions for the experts please:

1. can they legally do this? I am an employee, not a manager or director

2. my family is very worried that someone will turn up - do I have any options as regards to banning them from contacting me, deleting my personal data. I am worried that will start to use my details and pass them on to other parties such as DCAs.

3. can I sue them for harassment? This has, to be frank, wrecked this weekend.

 

I won't go into too much detail of the company & dispute here as I'm fairly confident that they search the web for such posts, but if any moderator wants to know more, please PM me.

 

Any advice or thoughts welcome as always.

 

Many thanks

Hi all

 

At work we're having some difficulty with a supplier.

 

Today, I received a recorded delivery letter at home. I looked at it before I signed for it, saw who it was from and refused it. How have they got your home address? If from work then the DP Act applies

 

Questions for the experts please:

1. can they legally do this? I am an employee, not a manager or director NO

2. my family is very worried that someone will turn up - do I have any options as regards to banning them from contacting me, deleting my personal data. I am worried that will start to use my details and pass them on to other parties such as DCAs. If it were me, I'd send them a notice to cease and desist all contact and quote the DP Act as well as the Protection from Harassment Act

3. can I sue them for harassment? This has, to be frank, wrecked this weekend. Once a notice has been served to cease any further acts of the same are considered to be act/s of harassment

 

I won't go into too much detail of the company & dispute here as I'm fairly confident that they search the web for such posts, but if any moderator wants to know more, please PM me.If your local Council office has a Trading Standards desk, pop in and ask to have a chat with one of the officers, see what they can offer

 

Any advice or thoughts welcome as always.

 

Go to work on Monday and play Holy Hell about them contacting you at home, and maybe

mention that if it happens again that the police will become involved..

Many thanks

 

Good Luck & Best Wishes, DAVE - DMD.

Hi Dave

 

I can only presume they have found me on 192.com or similar, no way would they have got my details from work.

 

I will be sending them a letter from work instructing them to stop contacting me at home, to remove my details and to tell me how and where they obtained them, and if they have disclosed them. I'll also be asking for their data protection registration number (they also supply consumers).

 

I wondered about making a complaint to the police anyway, my family are really worried that someone will come round to the house.

 

They have a regulatory body, so they'll be informed too.

 

I really, badly, want to screw them over for what they've done. The only thing they understand is money. What are my chances of getting something out of them, even if it's £100 just to show them I won't be messed with like this.

 

Thanks for your input!

I am confused - what purpose would a supplier have in contacting you at home?!? That seems VERY strange to me, very strange. Do you have any idea why they would contact you personally or what they hope to achieve?

 

Is it to do with payment issues?!?

 

Personally I would take this matter up with your superiors at work tomorrow and see if they have any idea why this company would be trying to make contact with an employee at home. Other people may too have received letters as without further information cannot understand why they would single you out.

I too am confused why they are sending a recorded delivery package to you. What benefit would they have? What are they trying to achieve?

 

Re Data Protection you can search the Register here... http://www.ico.gov.uk/ESDWebPages/search.asp Send your complaint to them direct to their DPA controller.

 

In your letter request that they collect the package... at their expense. Indicate they have 31 days to do so otherwise you will treat the item as abandoned and dispose of it accordingly. If it costs you to dispose of it indicate that you will require reimbursement.

Hi folks Thanks for the replies. @Nystagmite: I have no idea why they're trying to contact me at home, I have never given them my home address and nor would anyone in the company. Our directors have their address listed as the office, so they probably looked me up somewhere and targetted me as they couldn't reach them at home.

 

We're cancelling the contract and it is me who's dealt with all the cancellation, so I am guessing it's a scare / threat attempt. It's working on my family though which I am not happy with. @backofbeyond: as above for why they're after me, and no, there are no payment issues at all, in fact we pay by DD and they took an additional unauthorised payment, which we've had back now.

 

Not sure if anyone else has had letters, will find out today I guess. @papasmurf1cx: thanks for that link, I've checked and they don't appear to be registered, so if I understand correctly this processing of my private data is an offence. As far as I know they deal with consumers so surely they should be registered? I refused the letter, as I didn't want to give them any kind of confirmation that where they were sending it to was my home address.

 

Other points: - If I now complain to them, they will know it is my home, even though I refused the letter, so they have won on this point. - Can I force them (& anyone they've passed them to) to delete my details and to divulge where they got them, there's a Data Protection clause about their use of my data causing me harm or similar, can't locate it immediately. - I'm not a compensation seeking person normally but as this is the only language these people understand, I want to hit them in their pocket.

 

Any thoughts on how I might do this and on what grounds? If anyone who's responded wants the name of the company please PM me and I'll gladly send the details, I just don't want it on open forum as yet. Thanks again for your input, very much appreciated.

Sorry, line breaks don't seem to be working, even though I have had 4 attempts at editing that. Can anyone help with that? Thanks
