    • Hi,  Here's my draft and please feel free to give me suggestion: ========== Dear Sir/Madam, TFL case number: **** I would like to thank TFL for providing me the opportunity to explain my behaviour. I realised the stupidity of what I have done and wish to seek a resolution to this matter. I have no valid excuse for this action and I am extremely sorry and deeply regret my action. I hope you will accept my sincere apologies. Nothing can justify my action. I am aware that TFL are only able to operate if everyone pays their fare correctly and I feel so guilty about attempting to breach public trust. This has caused me sleepness nights and raised my anxieties. I have history of anxiety. This has been a hard lesson learnt. I have never been in trouble with the law in the past and I ensure that I won’t be in the future. I am and will be using my oyster card (PAYG). I would like to humbly appeal to TFL to allow me to settle this matter out of court and avoid going to prosecution given the adverse consequences it can have on me and my family. I am very concerned that prosecution for the first time and I would like to make restitution for my action. Having a criminal offense on my record will have detrimental consequences on me. I have always been a law abiding person and have no previous offences.     I would really appreciate if I can be given the opportunity to pay for any unpaid fares plus any charges and/or administrative cost which have been incurred by TFL due to this incident. I am sincerely remorseful and ashamed of myself, and I fully appreciate the severity and stupidity of my transgressions. Again, I would like to offer my sincerest apologies. Yours Faithfully, My Name -----------------------------  
    • My wife dropped my daughter off at a kids party space on a trading estate and didn't think to look for signs as she parked outside the establishment. We got a £60 (reduced early payment) fine. Although now the signs are to be seen its a lot of money is this something we must now pay? Attached is the notice and the signs. Looks obvious now but when you are driving to a party warehouse on a trading estate and looking for the place itself its easy to miss this and especially when it seems logical to park there and walk in. My wife was there for 30 minutes. Thanks in advance Sam          A4.pdf
    • That's such a perverse judgment its almost unbelievable Looks like totally ignored everything and just gave judgement on something that's not compulsory as in name a driver or appeal did judge confuse having to name a driver in a motoring offence case like speeding with the civil?
    • The OH had letter from Resolvecall regarding a very old LTSB debt at the start of the month. Knowing it was SB, I sent off the SB letter to Intrum who owns the debt. They responded to the OH last week when I was away. They basically said speak to Resolvecall and the standard letter, we'll pop to your house malarkey.... Just ignore as Intrum own the debt and from the looks of it have ignored the SB letter? The OH gets twitchy with these things, thanks PM.

    • 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 Everyone,


I have not posted for a while as I have been on holiday, anyway I just

wanted to update everyone I how my claim is doing.


Preliminary letter 29 June 2006

Letter Before Action 15 July 2006

Court Claimed Filed 12 September 2006


There was a slight delay in filing my court claim, as I was going away on holiday

and I did not want to file it before I went away, as I would not be available

to deal with if needed, so I waited until I came back.


I have had one response to my preliminary letter stating the usuall we need

4 weeks la la la. And the second was to say they could not reply as there was

an issue with my date of birth, incidently the same date of birth I had been using since my interception of my Crap One card in 2002, and the same date of birth I had been using since, wait for it!! I was born, oh and that was from Robert Uddy. he must be thinking up new lines of attack.


There was just another thing I want to mention as well, in the last few days

I had a very heated but controlled conversation with Crap One about a new

tactic they have started. When I came back from my hols I had loads of mail waiting for me, except any statements from Crap One which I thought was strange. So I contacted them to find out what the problem was and guess

what they tell me my statements had been returned, so they put a block on my address, never bothered to send me a letter to inform me of this, and because I had not had any statements, as I assumed they would come in due course, Crap One kindly informed me I had incurred more charges.


I ask them to prove that these statements had been returned, but they said they could not. This was a completely different response from the previous agent you told me that they would send proof, and if it was the fault of Crap One they would refund the charges. But when I followed up the issue they said they could not provide proof and that it was the fault of the post office, and they were not to blame, and in this case the would not refund the charges.


Again I need to point out that I had letters from Crap One when I got home from my hols and the week following that, and all of a sudden they tell me my address is unsafe. What is the word I am looking for that's it B***Sh** the Crap One customer service agent also informs me that I should not wait for or rely on a statement before I pay my bill, and everyone who does this

is quite simply going about it the wrong way.


We got into a heated debate about unlawful charges etc, he informs me that it does in fact cost them £20 to deal with people's non payment & late payments etc, and also that the only reason they charge people this money is to deter them from doing again, and not to make money out of them.


Or as I put it to him "use us as a cash machines"


Anyway I think you get the drift of how my claim is going, court claim has been

filed and I am now just waiting to find out to see if they intend to defend.


Any comments please post them, I look forward to hearing from you.

All the best

Hi all,


Just updating how I am getting on with my claim, Capital one have filed

to acknowledge my claim on the 25 September and to state they intend to defend the claim.


Although I know this is the way they play it, I am still wondering

whether I might be the very first person that they intend to defend against. :D


What do you think?
