    • Thank you for your response.   No, I have not paid for any additional insurance.   What I have done until now is to raise a loss claim with Packlink. They have confirmed “the shipment as subject to tampering” and I got a refund of 25 GBP plus 2.89 GBP for the postage charge, which I’m waiting to receive.   So based on your suggestions I assume I will need to raise a formal complaint with Hermes now and update you once I get a response. I have already started educating myself on the matter while waiting for a reply but I certainly have a long way to go. I am wondering how it is still possible for Hermes to be operating in the UK having created similar issues to so many people. I would have never thought items go missing like this.
    • I hope you mean I try to help people stand up to bullying - and not do the bullying!   I'll assume it's a compliment!     Well - that sort of demonstrates that you've not understood my point and (perhaps?) haven't actually read the OP?   My point is that it is not the boyfriend (the supposed "owner" of the car park) who is posting, but his girlfriend who believes that he "owns" his car parking space.  Yes - it usually makes sense to believe that what the OP is posting is the truth, but in this case there is every reason to believe that there is a possibility that the OP might be mistaken about her boyfriend's ownership of the parking space, because...  well, how would she know for sure whether he does or not?  He might be boasting or lying or simply mistaken.  (My understanding is that many people who "own" flats are often under the mistaken apprehension that they "own" a parking space when they don't.  All the more reason then that somebody else other than the "owner" might be even more mistaken).   I suppose what I'm getting at is that I was a bit surprised that both you and dx100uk were able to give such definite and certain answers to the OP without exploring her situation a bit more fully and ensuring that she fully and correctly understood her boyfriend's rights in respect of the parking space in question.  I was simply concerned that without getting more information from the OP, then the replies given to her might prove to be less than useful.  I wouldn't want her to leave thinking that there was absolutely nothing to worry about and then find out there was because she'd been misadvised because she didn't understand whether her BF "owned" the space or not.   Of course, it may be that my concern here makes absolutely no difference to the answer that needs to be given to the OP because it doesn't matter whether her boyfriend actually "owns" the parking space or not, which is fine.  But sometimes I think it would be helpful to the OP (and other readers like myself) if some of these legal niceties could be spelled out rather than left unexplained.    
    • I've spoken to my son in law and because the gearbox can be very expensive to repair, he would prefer to reject the car.   The garage isn't going to charge storage at the moment.   I feel they have been mislead regarding the service history.   How difficult would it be to get the finance company on our side in rejecting the car and sending back to the dealer?
    • The first thing to say is that you better go ahead and refund the buyer because otherwise she will end up getting negative feedback as well. We will try and help you get your money back from Hermes. Have you made a formal claim through Hermes and have they formally declined you and giving you reasons why? Presumably the item was properly declared and properly valued when the delivery was booked. You don't say whether or not you took out their so-called insurance. Please start off by reading around the sub- forum focusing particularly on the Hermes threats. There are lots of them. Get to understand the principles in respect of the arguments – the insurance element, your third party rights despite the fact that you booked it through Packlink. Have a look at other people's experiences of having sued Hermes, the process of issuing the claim, the defence, the mediation and have a close look at the advice that we give about how to handle mediation. It's highly likely that you will have to issue claim papers so also read around to understand the steps you need to take to bring a small claim in the County Court. It's straightforward but understanding the steps will make you far more confident about what you are doing. Have you started a formal complaint against Hermes and Packlink?

I am a pensioner

who has now received two threatening letters from an organisation called control account plc

regarding a so-called parking ticket picked up in the car park of my local Morrisons.

 

It was originally about £30 but has now risen to £95 which I cannot afford.

 

I parked,

went across to the Job Centre to do some business,

returned to shop at Morrisons and found the ticket on my windscreen when it was time to leave.

 

What can I do?

 

I REALLY cannot afford this.

You don't need to be alarmed about this.

Read the forums and you will quickly understand what to do - or not to do about these parking charge notices - PCN.

 

After you have had a good read round, come back here and ask us any further questions you might have.

Ignore it.

 

However, you will then receive a tonne of letters intended to make you feel uncomfortable that terrible things will happen to you (such as £30 becoming £95).

 

Imagine they wrote claiming as you parked there they were ordering you to wear a traffic cone on your head for a month. Then sent letters claiming you now needed to wear two traffic cones. Just because its money they are asking for does not make it legal/sensible!

 

If you feel you want to shout at someone - do it to the manager of the Morrison's in question and if he does nothing take your custom elsewhere.

Hey Martin,

 

Don't pay any notice to the letters. They are all designed to scare you into paying.

Ash.

If you shopped at morrisons, and have a reciept, and didnt overstay according to whatever times were stated, then as suggested, ignore them. Theres nothing they can do.

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..

You can ingore this anyway regardless of where you shopped what receipts you may or may not have, and regardless of any signs stating anything. It is NOT a parking ticket, treat it exactly the same as you would do if you received a letter from Nigeria claiming you had a long lost relative who had died and left you a trillion dollars in their will.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!
