    • You mention covid holiday in your title.. did you have one and missed or deferred payments?   tell us the story please though a mortgage company rarely refuses for one default.there must be another reason   DX
    • Vodafone have a reputation for doing this although it hasn't happened for a while. There an appalling company and I think they are the most complained about company and have been find quite a lot of money in the past by the so-called regulator. Frankly I thought that they had started to sort themselves out. Sent them an SAR. They may try to impose some kind of obstacle such as a special former something or other to fill in. This is unlawful as long as they have no reason to be dissatisfied with your identity details. Separately – because they are capable of understanding to issues in the same letter – separately send them a letter of complaint and ask them what's going on. You might also want to try and deal with this on the telephone – but if you do then read our customer services guide first and implement the advice there because anything that is said on the telephone could be of use. However, don't expect this to go away quickly. They are incompetent and once they make a mistake they tend to dig themselves in rather than dig themselves out. Sent they SAR – and separately the letter of complaint.
    • Nobody here can say for sure whether you should challenge this penalty or just pay it because nobody knows if a court would consider your reason(s) for not wearing a mask a reasonable excuse or not.   But... my view would be that if you can get a letter from your doctor saying that because of your medical conditions (acne and anxiety) that wearing a mask causes you such distress (and/or discomfort and/or pain) that you have a medically based reasonable excuse for not wearing a mask, then that should do it for you - in my view.   You can then use that letter to challenge the police as to the validity of the fixed penalty, and if they don't back down you can let it go to court - if you want to do that.  I would expect the court to accept your doctor's letter at face value and quash the penalty - but nothing is certain!   Have you given your doctor/your practice notice of what you want and why you need it?  Have you explained that you have already received a fixed penalty for not wearing a mask, that you want to challenge it and that you need a letter explaining your reasonable excuse for not wearing a mask so that this does not happen again?  At my GP surgery I could either have phoned them up to explain all this in advance, or emailed them explaining it.  It might not be a good idea just to turn up for an appointment without letting the GP know in advance why you are there.   If your GP won't give you a "reasonable excuse" letter - and they may refuse to do so - then you need to think again.   First thing to consider if they don't is that you need to decide if you really have a reasonable excuse or not.  If you still think you do, then you need to decide if you want to challenge the penalty further or if you just want to pay it.  But if you do that, what happens next time* you are caught without a mask?  If you don't think you have a reasonable excuse, then you'd better start wearing a mask.   *If you can't get a GP's letter I have a few other thoughts but will have to post those later - I'm just going out.
    • It will be very helpful if you could space your posts a bit more. Well space makes it much easier for people to engage with – especially when they are looking at it on a small screen. I'm not sure how long ago was that curries could ever have been considered an excellent retailer. They've always been curmudgeonly about their customer support. All I can say is that there were times when they were maybe a better retailer because at the moment things are very bad with them. If you used have an account here then maybe we can merge them if you still have access to the old email address that you used. We weren't around in the eighties. We started in 2006. I don't see why you think that your previous history with curries should influence their standard of customer-dealing with you. Big Fail. Also, yes – failure to use a credit card – Big Fail.   I've had a look at your letter of claim. I can't believe that this is the standard of stuff provided by Which magazine. It really is verbose and goes into all sorts of irrelevant details – and in case you haven't understood it yet, Currys don't care about the problems they have caused you, whether or not their behaviour is unacceptable, your level of exasperation – you attempt to be reasonable to them by proposing some kind of negotiation (what on earth is there to negotiate here? You paid 100% of the money and you want 100% of what you paid for. Is there a problem with that?) Have you sent this letter of claim yet? You better let us see your proposed particulars of claim before you click them off. I have no idea why you went to Which – when you know that we exist and you've been here before.     Also, I have just noticed that you have given them 28 days to respond. Bless!

    • 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!

How much do you usually get charged as i will have to pay using my hsbc account which will probably make me go over my Over draft limit therefore incurring more charges, are they re claimable? thanks

As far as I am aware the amount you are charged for MCOL depends on how much you are claiming back from the bank and you get that back when u win.

 

wouldnt worry about how you sent your letter. you may want to use RD for your next letter so that HSBC cant pretend they didnt recieve anything. I handed all mine in at branch and asked for a reciept because I didnt want to have to pay postage on the very heavy schedule copies i needed to send lol.

So, its best to get some sort of proof of sending but dont worry about what is already done. stick to your timetable and dont give them an inch!

 

Good luck

my claim is for £2700 and cost me £120 on MCOL. I think it starts at £30 and goes up depending how much your claim is for. it calculates it all for you when u use mcol. hope that helps.

they dont tend to close your account until u make more than one claim on the same account or a claim for more than one account. So basically, as long as you only sue them once u ought to be ok lol

Hi ishmo.

In any case stick to your deadlines. It is HSBCs tactic to make you nervous. In my case, they waited every time to the last minute or ignored deadlines. One day after I filed my MCOL I had a letter offering me only part of my claim, but after the deadline ended. Should that happen to you, see my letter to them in my thread.

NO SURRENDER go and get them!

Yep its a case of being very patient and calm.

They knwo your tiemtable for dealing with this so just stick to it and be as calm and clinical as possible.

You have to remember they will do everythign they can to filter out those claims that they think will be a push over, its the cheaper option for them.

I love the smell of banks coughing up refunds early in the morning

well i havent heard from them 14 days after the prelim letter so ive sent the LBA letter today, just hope they pay more attention this time!gettin abit nervous now as the money claim is getting closer but also feeling good as i can add on the extra 8% just hope it doesnt get to that stage and they offer to settle early.

Another thing is that i went to the abbey bank yesterday to change everything over, i had an account with them ages ago but due to not using this account for ages it has gone inacive and they are now saying i have to use the abbey account for a while so my credit score goes up or something along those lines. just cross my fingers HSBC don't close my account as revenge )o:

yes it means they have bounced it AND charged you for it. dont worry, u can add this money to your MCOL claim. they've done this to me loads of times.

 

i had a call from them today saying they were going to put more charges on my account and i simply informed the guy i would start another claim against them in court if they dared to charge me again. (im already at mcol stage). its worth ringing them and letting them know about pending court action so they are better off stopping it as you are already taking action.
