    • as you mention the bpa sounds like its a scummy private car park lot blue badges mean nothing on private land anyway.............. so a failure to display something that is meaningless on private land anyway is a money grabbing scam moved to the private parking forum dx dx
    • who is it from  a council or a private parking company?
    • As per the heading, received a parking charge for failure to display a blue badge in a disabled bay on a retail park.  I am a blue badge holder, disabled/wheelchair user with a Motability vehicle. I received the charge as 'notice to keeper' I was not the driver. I don't have a valid driving license so use a carer. The notice arrived a week after the alleged incident. It states that as the 'driver' failed to pay the charge in full  hence, it is now the keepers responsibility ( the notice was dated 2 days after the alleged infringement and as no notice to driver was on the vehicle, I don't know how they expect the driver to be able to either pay or dispute the charge if they are not aware of it) Anyway, really looking for help how to reply. I cannot remember if the badge was correctly displayed or not. Photos taken of car miss a bit where I store my badge if not displayed so it would be possible to see a badge even if not 'correctly displayed" . It was a bit of a sh**ty day weather wise, gusty and raining  (as seen on the photos which reminded me of the actual day) so it is possible that badge blew to the floor as the driver was helping me out of the car into wheelchair. There is no windscreen photo showing that a PCN to "Driver" was stuck on the window either. The car park is free. There are no Parking Signs at all near the disabled bays that one could read to adhere to any terms and conditions. The whole row of disabled bays - of which are there many only state badge holders ( does not stipulate Blue Badge Holders) The notice states that the parking company is a member of the BPA and Operating in accordance with the British Parking Association's Code of Practice. The BPA, section 19.1 State that at least one parking sign should be near the disabled bays, in a position that can be easily  read by by a disabled person without leaving their car in order to decide to be bound by such terms. We returned to look for signage on the retail park and could not find one sign that was near the bays. The only sign we could find was high up on a pole but not near the bays. Someone had to get out of the car and stand on tip toes to be able to take a photo of a sign. I would be grateful if someone could help or point me in the right direction. It is now  15 days since the alleged incident and 7 days since I received the notice.
    • also just to clarify is it required that I physically post to both the county court and Evri? I read in another thread you can just email Evri a copy since they will just rescan whatever you post anyway (if they even read it)

    • 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,

 

This is my first post in a while!

 

recently i sold an iPhone 4S on ebay for £550 and i received the funds as soon as the buyer had won the item.

 

I proceeded to withdraw the money and then ordered another phone that i wanted,

a few hours after though i had an email stating that they wanted to collect the phone from my house at 11.30PM which i obviously denied

 

The following day i then receive an email that a "none postage of item" dispute had been raised,

 

i then messaged the seller saying i am going to post the item today etc please withdraw the appeal etc but i received no reply.

 

A few days passed and then i received an email from the seller stating that her account had infact been a victim of fraud and that she had not bought the phone.

 

She then returned the phone to me but meanwhile paypal had put my account balance to -550 pounds!

 

When i received the phone back a work mate advised me to setup a new paypal to continue with my ebay buisness

and to re-sell the phone but also to dispute the fact that my account is -550 for no fault of my own.

 

So i proceeded to sell the phone again and a music player on ebay

 

The buyers paid me immediately but then paypal limited my account,

 

since then i have posted both items and sent proof to paypal,

i have uploaded my driving license and a utility bill.

 

Unfortunately i cannot add my bank account because it is linked to my other PayPal account.

 

Now the problem is i have 700 quid frozen in this account and my other account is - 550!!

 

Paypal have said they will be keeping all funds for 180 days and then will decide if the money is mine or theres..

 

Surely there is some legal rights for me considering i have proof i posted both items?

 

Hopefully someone can help me here, i didnt know where else to turn!

My account was frozen in 2007. I had no disputes against me - but had raised two against other Ebay sellers. I think it happened as I used the account from outside the EU in a country some would consider to be "risky".

 

Calling them ran up a £30 bill and got nowhere. They keep asking one new thing at a time to prove who I was and dragged it out over months.

 

In the end I had left the UK, and saw it entirely unlikely to get any further with them, and the time spent was exceeding the effort worthy of a couple of hundred quid.

 

Now in the process of moving back to the UK, about a week ago I called the FSO, and they said they would look into it, and seemed well versed with Paypal.

 

From reading about PP over the years, it seems they never defend civil actions, so that or the FSO may be the best way to refund your money.

Surely the buyer cant raise an item not recived complaint only after a day ?

 

So you withdrew the £500 and you now have it ?. Surely if Paypal have made your account -500 then you havnt lost anything ?

 

Also how is the item not recived case going ?. Surely you have proof of postage, which is what Paypal require, (I hope you used special delivery).

 

I can gaurentee that when selling highly desireble items such as iPhones, Tablets, etc at least one of the bidders is fraudulant, hacking someones account is very widespread (I was in same sitautiopn, selling a Tablet) and Paypal really should increase theior security (in the same way bank websites work).

Problem is andy... I got paid 550 and withdrew immediately which put my account to -550 when the buyer appealed it the day after...

 

Now i made the mistake of making a new paypal to resell the phone, i was advised by collegues to do that.

 

So i get the money paid in my new paypal, then paypal limit it so i cant withdraw anything or transfer it to my other account..

 

Ive said to them numerous times, transfer the funds to my old account it will clear the negative balance and the rest can stay in my account.. Each time i get a super long pasted email telling me the processes...

 

Im super annoyed now...
