    • Amazing thanks, I am not sure what to type as this is the first time I have got to this stage with the FOS, but my letter below is a start and would appreciate any comments/amends to suit:   Complaint about MYJAR Limited - Trading as MYJAR Reference Number XXXXX   Thank you for your email of the 29th June 2020, the contents of which are noted.   I have to say I am somewhat surprised and disappointed by the outcome of this and I would like to explain why.   Firstly, I attach a spreadsheet showing the state of my credit file.  This show the Default date to/from the amount of the Default, including CCJs.  In total I had 10 Defaults and 3 active CCJs at the time of the first loan taken out with MyJar.   Two of the CCJs were paid off in July 2017, however, and still remain on my credit file until September 2020/March 2021 respectively.   This should have been a sufficient warning to MyJar that they should not have lent any monies to me whatsoever.  However, they went ahead and, as you can see continued to lend to me each time, when all of the Defaults and CCJs were still active on my credit file.   Also, with regards to the table below, you can clearly see that another loan was taken out straight after the existing one.  I understand that you cannot have more than one MyJar loan at any one time, but what I would do is use my salary to clear the loan and then borrow again from MyJar to cover the amount that I had paid off….. in a sense “robbing Peter to pay Paul”.   Loan Date Taken Date Repaid Instalments Amount Highest Repayment 1 05/11/2017 22/11/2017 6 £1,000.00 £284.63 2 05/12/2017 06/02/2018 12 £1,475.00 £266.20 3 16/03/2018 18/07/2018 12 £800.00 £117.87 4 23/07/2018 outstanding 12 £725.00 £110.82   I would also like to state that Loan 4 is still outstanding as the account has been placed on hold whilst the investigation took place with yourself.  They have, however, offered me a settlement figure of £600 and to clear this balance at a rate that is acceptable to myself.   Looking back at previous correspondence, I still feel that all interest and charges that I have paid should be refunded.  This totals £725.90 across all loans.  This would therefore settle Loan 4 of £600 and the remaining monies of £125.90 owed to myself.   I would therefore ask that my case is reviewed with the additional information stated above.
    • Hello to all.  Any help or advice is greatly received.                      I traded in my car almost a year ago and purchased a second hand kia optima 2013 with around 75000 on the clock, and 127 a month in HP payments. After 5 and a half months of normal use the engine seized, the reverse camera and sensors no longer worked and the passenger seat belt alarm continuously sounds at various times when no one is seated in it. I had also needed to renew pads and a brake calliper almost 4 months after purchase. I had not raised concerns to the brake components as they would be considered wear and tear.                     Being in the industry I dropped the oil and found it to be extremely thick and probably not circulating to the top of the engine, i.e. the oil had not been renewed in a very long time (there is no oil light on the dash or any indication of fault or maintenance due) I retained the oil filter, and opened a resolver case, with tall the faults listed.                 Upon contacting the dealer and informing him of what happened he indicated he wanted no responsibility towards rectifying the problem as close brothers were technically the owner. I approached close brothers (18th February)who started the ball rolling and approached dealer again who formally by letter refused liability.                              Close brothers then sent an engineer to inspect my listed problems, this was visual as the vehicle will not move, after three weeks the report was with my case handler.  I requested this report twice but have yet to see it.  Close brothers informed me that the report was inconclusive and they would need to move to a more through inspection.             At this stage the pandemic hit, at no point did I stop work and had to continue on charity and the diminished public transport to commute to work (140 miles a week)  no courtesy car or rental was provided.  I maintained contact with close brothers throughout, and was given the same update, they were waiting for the engineering firm to do an assessment but they were only doing key workers . Despite me telling them I was a key worker, nothing was done until the easing of the lockdown. I was informed that ACE vehicle inspection would contact me to collect the oil filter.                             Eventually this happened on the 18th of June and I phoned each week to chase. I was informed on the 30th that the report was showing on the portal and my case handler (simon) would look at it and call me back. I received no call and called on the 1st with the same responses. Today (2nd July) I got Simon who tells me that the report is showing on the portal but when he went to open it, it was not there and he would chase the engineering firm and get back to me in a couple of hours.                     I believe I am being taken for a mug now and am unsure weather I should escalate my revolver case to the regulator or any other advice, I'm therefore at this forums mercy any advice will be greatly received. 
    • Yeah I think you're probably right. I cancelled it anyway because the balance was due on the 10th July and I thought if I held out for an alternative and rejected it I might loose my deposit. Virgin are not answering calls from anyone not flying within 14 days by which time  the balance due date will be well past. I didn't want to pay the balance just to keep my deposit and get it all back in 4 months. Better to cancel the whole thing and get my deposit back now.   The holiday is in October so I think it will be fine to travel by then. I still plan to take a holiday on the same dates but I doubt I will get 10 days in the Caribbean (or anywhere long haul) for the same price so will probably go somewhere in Europe. It's just frustrating when I see basically the same holiday advertised on the same dates but for 50% more than the one they just cancelled.   I'm not too worried about Covid 19 and plan to travel as soon as the quarantine rules are lifted.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi

 

Just posting this so that folks can see how I progress with Comet. Personally I have not had any dealings with them in the past so I approach my forthcoming dealings with them with an open mind.

 

Brief synopsis is that dishwasher purchased 21 December. Noticed over the Christmas period that stuff on the lower level wasn't being cleaned properly. I looked after Christmas and found the lower spray arm wasn't revolving so there's the problem identified.

 

Cause of that problem unknown as yet.

 

Have called Comet Cust Service like a good boy. 5 Mins or so wait but have booked engineer and appointment date Tuesday 17th.

 

Have got my reference number from chap on the phone (and his name too).

 

I will give them one chance to put this right and if not it is straight in with requirement for replacement and if I get messed around I will issue.

 

I will not pussy foot with them.

 

I'll update as I go, even if it is a very short thread and they resolve the issue immediately.

Well sadly Comet have fallen at the first hurdle.

 

When I arranged the engineer visit I had agreed an afternoon call today (17th) due to work commitments this morning. Customer service chap said OK although the norm is to arrange any time during the day appointments. So anyway...afternoon was agreed.

 

Phone call from engineer this morning saying he will be here between 10:30 and 12:00.

 

No good says I.....I'm working this morning and told him had agreed afternoon.

 

No can do says he...you are the last one in the area and they book all day appointments.

 

Ok I says well you can come between those hours but no-one will be here as afternoon was agreed.

 

Anyway, long and short of it is they had their chance to look at it so when I get back from work, Comet will receive my polite request for a replacement.

 

Be interesting to see what they say.

 

Will update as soon as..

Ok

 

So visited the Comet store to politely request a replacement and told them that I am now formally rejecting the goods and that I require a replacement.

 

Got told that sorry ims, we cannot authorise that in store, only H/O can do that. They also said the usual about their right to inspect etc. etc.

 

Told myself to keep calm ims and explained that within the time frame we are talking about (less than 28 days in this case) I can formally reject the faulty goods and their wanting to examine makes no difference to me or anything else for that matter.

 

Polite discussion ensued but store manager still insistent that the stores do not authorise so I think to myself OK give them rope to hang themselves. So decided to play the game with them.

 

Have now e-mailed H/O formally rejecting the appliance and telling them that I want a replacement...when will they have it either ready for collection form their store (I'll help them minimise reasonable costs) or when will it be delivered to me.

 

Their web site e-mail says they reply within 24 hours to questions so, to be reasonable I will give them 48 hours to respond.

 

Have typed up Letter Before Action which will be sent to their Registered Office if no answer or if they mess about

Hi ims21 ,

 

COMET will insist on examining your washer I would bet on .

 

The plus side is if you do manage to have an engineer call in the afternoon , as the washer is under 28 days old the engineer will be authorising a replacement within 2 minutes of being in your kitchen , a quick and easy job for him no matter what the fault is , and you will be quite happy as well I would think .

 

These kind of exchanges have nothing to do with their Head Office either the simple fact is your washer is under 28 days old .

 

Just to add once again , once a Retail Store or elsewhere in CometLand has got the Sale they are quick to wash their hands

(no pun intended)

of any problem which may arise regarding a faulty product and the buck is passed to their Service bit so to speak.

 

As far as a refund goes well that is another question with another answer I would suggest.

Thanks GB

 

This is also a bit of a test for Comet's Customer Service to see if they do the right thing and more to the point see if they do it quickly and in accordance with SOGA.

 

Not impressed thus far but we'll see how it pans out over the next day or so

So Comet e-mail back saying same old stuff about all day call when they agreed to afternoon.

 

Still saying they require to inspect before a resolution can be reached.

 

Have told them LBA being sent recorded delivery to their registered office. LBA gives them 7 days to replace or refund in full.

 

Will allow the 7 days from when the LBA is signed for.

 

Day 8 and court papers will be issued.

Well nothing substantial to report other than Comet still e-mailing saying they want to inspect to see how to resolve the issue.

 

Have told them there is no choice now....refund or replace.

 

They even told me they will be coming out on a particular day next week to look at it.....not even "can we make an appointment" or "will you be around".

 

Have e-mailed telling them there is now only one of two ways they can resolve....pay back the purchase price or deliver new machine.

 

LBA sent to registered office today

You could highlight the main points of the SOGA that specifically apply to your case, get them to tell you why they don't thing the SOGA doesn't apply in your case. Also remember Comets never tested the product before they sold it to you.

Funnily enough I did put in a paragraph to the effect that I would be interested to know on what grounds they feel SOGA doesn't apply.

 

It is rather annoying that they do not want to do the right thing. I appreciate they do not test everything before sale and it could be that there is a "batch" of machines suffering the same fault. What galls me is that a customer goes through the procedures of informing their "Customer Service" team of the problem and give them a chance to have a look at it by way of an appointment which they failed to honour.

 

Next the customer attends the store from where the item was bought and the customer gets little or no help there either.

 

Then they attempt to wriggle via the e-mail complaints and to top it all then tell me when they are coming out with so much as a by your leave or even finding out if I'm available.

 

I have formally rejected the goods in writing already.

 

We will see if the LBA makes anyone sit up and listen.

 

Regards

 

ims

Hi ims21 ,

 

COMET will insist on examining your washer I would bet on .

 

The plus side is if you do manage to have an engineer call in the afternoon , as the washer is under 28 days old the engineer will be authorising a replacement within 2 minutes of being in your kitchen , a quick and easy job for him no matter what the fault is , and you will be quite happy as well I would think .

 

These kind of exchanges have nothing to do with their Head Office either the simple fact is your washer is under 28 days old .

 

Just to add once again , once a Retail Store or elsewhere in CometLand has got the Sale they are quick to wash their hands

(no pun intended)

of any problem which may arise regarding a faulty product and the buck is passed to their Service bit so to speak.

 

As far as a refund goes well that is another question with another answer I would suggest.

 

Hi ims ,

 

I know I may sound like a stuck record , but I still think my post regarding your washer is how it will be rightly or wrongly and will give you the best solution .

 

As I said the Retail Store is no longer interested , which you have found out , which is bad enough .

 

The buck has ben passesd to the "Service Bit" so to speak they want to examine your washer before the next move .......... which would be an authorised exchange as your faulty washer is a Under 28 days old .

 

This would be the best way to resolve your ongoing issue I would suggest as anything else could take days and maybe weeks .

 

Their "Service Bit" wants to examine the machine before it is considered for an exchange .

 

It now boils down to (or it may have passed !) you getting a PM call by an COMET Engineer which seems to be the main issue , and this cannot NOW be guaranteed by COMET albeit when you raised the initial Service call you were told a PM call would not be a problem !

 

Once again no departments work together with the one goal of providing an excellent customer service , they all do their own thing .

 

Which I am afraid is just not good enough and is getting much worse it would seem !

 

Just to add anything is now possible to resolve this by COMET as your ongoing issues are now on CAG .

• Wherever goods are bought they must "conform to contract". This means they must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality (i.e. not inherently faulty at the time of sale).

• If goods do not conform to contract at the time of sale, purchasers can request their money back "within a reasonable time". (This is not defined and will depend on circumstances)

Hi GB

 

No I don't think you are a stuck record and I'm grateful for your input on the thread.

 

As I say, I was more than happy for them to come and have a look. I took them at their word that a PM appointment would be OK ( after all, why wouldn't I) and they failed to honour it.

 

In fact, if they had the courtesy to call me and agree with me when they want to come I'd still let them look at it if they want to. That part of it makes no difference to the eventual outcome which will be refund/replace.

 

What I object to is them telling me when they are coming without making an arrangement and assuming that I will be available for them. I've already taken half a day off work for the previous appointment which they failed to honour and they think that at a drop of a hat I can take another day off.

 

I also wanted to go through a "process" with this which is why I started with report to Customer Services, then to the store and now in e-mail correspondence with them. Explore and exhaust the avenues as it were.

 

Also to relay my experiences here for the benefit of others.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a grumpy old man whinging about a dishwasher.

 

Because I have been unlucky in receiving faulty goods, it presented an opportunity to test their procedures and provide a narrative here on CAG.

 

As I say I am grateful for your contribution and I know the issue will be resolved. They could have made this really easy but have chosen not to...so lets see which way it goes now.

Totally correct rebel hence the reason COMET would want the Washer examined by one of their engineers so this can be established .

 

They do not exchange products or issue refunds in this kind of instance before they have examined the obviously inherently faulty product , and as the norm do not go on the hearsay of a customer beforehand regarding a fault or not "performing to contract " .

 

They decide not the Customer in most cases .

Yes you are quite correct ims it is the whole procedure which is wrong from start to finish , unfortunately you are only half way there at the moment .

 

As I have said in previous posts COMET finds it difficult to do the simple things correctly when it comes to dealing with customers regarding "Customer Service" when things go wrong and it is simply just not good enough .

 

They have got the theory right in most cases but fail to carry out the basics in practice which your Customer experience has already shown so far .

 

This could turn out to be a long thread ims but keep us informed .

I am sure your blogs will be a benefit to many customers with similar issues .

Ok we're getting there..

 

lba arrived with them yesterday.

 

Received e-mail today agreeing to an exchange and giving me an exchange reference number.

 

All I have to do (apparently) is pop into the selling store, give them the number and away we go.

 

Hopefully coming to a conclusion.

Final update.

 

Took excahnge not to Comet today and came away with a replaecement machine. So this matter is now resolved. Just a shame that Comet tried to wriggle out of their responsibilities under SOGA and it took the Letter Before Action to get them to take notice.

 

Note to Comet (if their CAG rep ever logs on again) - >Another customer lost...I won't be dealing with Comet again.
