    • 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, hopefully some of you good looking people will be able to help me please.

 

Here we go, I have just checked my credit expert account and see a default from o2 started on 21/10/2005 and defaulted on 01/08/2007.

 

When I've looked into the file history it appears that from the start it was a default, the first entry from 25-36 month section is a red 8, there is no u, 0,0,0,1,2,3, 8 etc it just starts on an 8.

 

Does this sound right as I have another account which is nearly at the end of its 6 years where I defaulted and it does have years of 0's then a 1,2,3 etc until I did actually default.

 

I have emailed the correct departments and wrote letters all sent recorded but have heard nothing back for nearly two months, not even an acknowledgement.

 

So what should I do next?

 

I have read a lot about people taking o2 to court and most peoples experiences is that 02 don't defend them selfs or just don't turn up?

 

Could this be a plan, trouble is if thats the way to go I've never done it and some advice on making it successful would really be appreciated?

 

Any help help would be greatly appreciated as Im supposed to be mortgage hunting towards the end of the year and this is going to prevent me from getting anything.

What is your take on the history of the account?

Companies all have their own systems and syle of

reporting to the CRAs.

Phone companies in my experience seem only to

start reporting when the account is defaulted so

I guess this is right.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.

I'm really not sure, like I said I have another defaulted O2 account and that shows normal history etc... I'll get some screenshots of my credit file up when I figure out how to do it.

 

Have you heard of anyone taking O2 to court and O2 contesting it? I personally havnt seen any?

You prompted me to look back at matters I've dealt with over the

years and no I can't find any relevent information, apart from the

point I made about posting entries only after the default more often

than a full histoery.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.
