    • HI all, So I work for a company who offers a review service for large companies, whereby customers can review products and/or services and the reviews appear on the companies own site My job, along with roughly 10 others, is to moderate those reviews. We're all on a zero hours contract, so we do work as and when it's available. The way the system works is for every 120 reviews we moderate, we get paid the equivalent of the basic minimum wage, so £11.44 per 120 reviews. If this were a steady supply of reviews, it could be a decent income, but it's not, so you end up spending a lot of time doing nothing and not being paid for it, such is life For the last 3 months or so they've had an issue whereby a lot of reviews were duplicated up to 15 times and we were told to moderate those as we would normal reviews, so you can imagine how many reviews we've been having to moderate, my moderated review count was probably around 4x the number I normally do, almost throughout the entirety of June this was going on for. So being quite excited about the prospect of a boost in income, to my and other mods surprise and shock, we're not being paid for all those extra hours and work done, for the past 3 months when the issue started.. We're only being paid for the non duplicate reviews, plus 5% on top. So in my case, instead of receiving around £1500ish for the month of June, I'm only receiving around £500 I mean, I get it, marking each of these duplicates was very quick/easy, as it was a repeat decision from the previous 14, but to let us do all that work and not pay us for it?
    • That's good news, well done. From  memory, self-employed people didn't pay into SERPS, it was for employees. And I believe SERPS stopped in 2002, being replaced by S2P. HB
    • You should for the court to consider otherwise they wont grant a directions hearing.
    • Two things: Firstly, can you avoid posting solid blocks of text. They are very difficult for people to read and to follow especially when using small screen such as telephones. Properly spaced please. I have restructured your one for you – but it would be nice if you took care of this yourself. Secondly, when you upload documents in PDF format – please can you use single file multipage format and also a name which is meaningful instead of just random numbers.pdf. As a general guide, you should upload documents in a way that you would like yourself to receive them if you are helping somebody free of charge. I have deleted the two files which you have uploaded earlier. As far as I can make out they are all part of the same document and should have been uploaded in a single file format and named. As it is, they aren't especially relevant at the moment so don't bother about reposting them but please bear in mind what we are saying about uploaded documents. I notice that although I asked you if the item was properly declared and valued you haven't responded in particular you haven't told us the declared value. Is there any reason for this please? Do you understand why you don't need parcel delivery insurance?

    • 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.

So basically ive fallen into the trap that over the last couple of days reading on here that many others have also.

 

It seemed so easy...fill in a form..15 mins later have 300 quid to spend..

 

2 years later it has spiralled out of control and I have at one point got to the stage where i considered taking my life over it all.

 

I have juggled 9 payday loans for 2 years and now im at my wits end and just want a way out....I have a relatively decent income 35k + and being skint after 10 days on this type of income is quite simply not on.

 

I have the following payday loans

 

pounds2pocket - borrow 1k..pay back 200 quid a month for 12 months

wonga -1000

text loans - 300

payday express - 680

peachy 115

wage day advance 300

1 month loan 290

mr lender 390

lending stream - 600

Minicredit - 900

 

What chances have I got off agreeing repayment plans for all these companies...I have today done what I keep reading which is open a new bank account and get my wage paid into that new account.

 

I can put aside sort of 700-800 to get these paid off within 6-12 month no problem...ive got myself into this mess and im going to pay my way of it.

 

couple of questions.

 

1) are these companies easy to agree repayment plans?

2) what sort of amounts can be realistically be expecting to pay on these per month.

3) reading alot of bad comments about minicredit - am i going to have to bite the bullet with this one?

4) what is this £1 token gesture mean a month...what is it preventing

5) how will i pay the monthly repayment plan...which account and whats stopping them taking the full amount when i give them my card details.

 

any help at all would be very welcomed and appriciated

 

thanks

Hello and welcome and

 

 

please stop worrying we will all help u in the right direction .

 

 

you earn a good wage so we need to help u get back on track so u can enjoy ur money again

 

 

so the firSt thing you do is email each one telling them u cannot pay on the next due date due to severe finacial circumstances

explain how much u can afford to pay them individually and that you are sorry you will have to default

but require a payment plan immediately

 

 

now normally the pdl wont agree to a plan until 24 hrs after u default

when again u should send another email repeating your previous request for a payment plan say for six months ..

 

 

some will comply some wont some are arrogant so therefore please do not speak to any of them on the phone ever

as they can be intimidating and rude and

 

 

when u send ur emails you tell them that you will only be in contact by email so that email copies can be saved for future reference to you

 

 

..this is time your time to be in full control now and not them offer them ur payment

see what they say if any refuse

 

 

send a repeat of ur offer by email again and if they harrass you by phone

then come back here and we will help u deal with that issue too

 

 

so be very firm at all times with them dont give up and ensure all direct debits have been cancelled

and u have a brand new bank card in case of raids and

 

 

please dont worry u will be free soon enough if u take the correct advice issued on these forums

 

 

so good luck and chin up u will be ok soon and come back

and let us know how u got on and for further advice if needed

 

 

xxxxx

Going by my own personal experience I found it easier dealing with the DCA,

 

 

at the end of the day they want the money and as long as you stand your ground and offer what you can afford per month, and tell them that if they want their money them they accept your offer, otherwise they get NADA. And

 

 

if they threaten you with court action them you can reply by letting them know that even if they take you to court a judge will only make you repay what you can afford anyway, plus they will have to explain why they refused your offer of repayment, (this worked for me)

 

 

All correspondance must be in writing as back up, email worked for me. when making repayments, its by standing order only, as much as they persist, don't give your bank details.

 

 

I dealt with Payday uk (passed to equidebt) quick quid (Mackenzie hall) and payday express (CastleBridge credit) but they are all cut from the same cloth. Just dont back down, they eventually will.

 

Also the £1 a month offer is I think an offer to make when you are in extreme dire straits and its literally all you can spare.

 

 

I wouldn't advise that unless you have no alternative, otherwise it will never get paid off.

 

 

This is only my opinion though, but if you can afford to pay more then just remember that the feeling you get when you are free of these sharks and your money is yours again, is worth a few months of tightening your belt.

Thanks for above advice but lets not scare people about dca yet as many many of us on here have not had the need to go down that road and have dealt with the pdl ourselfs and sucessfully gained control as im absoulutly sure this will be sorted and confined to the person dealing with it themselves in the correct manner so at this moment in time its early days and hopefully payment plans will soon be in place and if we do get a difficult pdl one wel sort that out too as there are sillygirl a smilecostnothing and many others to assist with this issue

If you are in bad financial circumstance you can send a letter asking them to wait until you have a better financial footing, or enter yourself into a Debt Management plan. The company doing the DMP will contact all your creditors and come to an arrangement. Even if that means they have to accept £1 a month.

 

I could help you by linking you to a simple I&E sheet to work out your exact situation, but would need details of the amounts owed to each creditor and your static income per month in order to write a letter you could send to each company. It's far better to get in touch with a company such as the national debtline who can easily help you sort out your finances and they can even negotiate on your behalf.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Minicredit are a complete bastard to deal with. They contacted by sister in regards to a loan she had, demanding that she pay £1030. That was after we sent a recorded delivery letter to them with concrete proof that they took amounts of £25 from her bank account when they felt like to pay off the £130 original loan. Then they had the cheek to send another letter saying that theyve had no contact.

Tell them its unfair and youre only paying the original loan plus interest. Not inflated amounts that have no basis in reality.

The last two need reporting to the OFT and Trading Standards, they are notoriously difficult to deal with, I have a sneaky suspicion both lots are 'one man band' organisations and do not have the staffing resources (or technical know how) to deal with anything other than a straightforward loan and subsequent swift repayment. No real evidence for this other than their unfailing ability to deal with people reasonably and quickly.

No they are not, they have a different parent company - cannot stress this enough..... Just because you get calls seemingly from America they may not be, they may be 'routed' through from somewhere completely different.

 

P2P were operating from Malta and QQ from a completely different country.

 

My apologies after a quick check there is Pounds2Pocket who are part of CashEuroNet, PoundstilPayday (also called P2P are the different one as they are brokers.....).

 

Either way it doesn't matter where they are from the fact that you borrowed money and want to repay it is the key.

It would appear that CashEuroNet are trying to become big players in this market, clearly they seem to like the PDL sector. Does anyone know who is behind them? I can't seem to find anything much, ie names of directors, previous companies owned.

Youd have to track it through the American company records, which is hard since they are done on a state to state basic unless they are incorporated.
