    • @dx100uk, I'm afraid you've got this wrong. My fear of compromising my defence wasn't with regards my response to DCB Legal's initial letter per se. It was more in reference to any subsequent advice posted on this thread by other forum members and I was only being wary due to the numerous instances when some have cautioned about parking companies and their legal reps trawling these pages to stay a step ahead.   As I did also state however, I'm happy to provide full details of that initial reply to DCB Legal and have therefore reproduced it below. Thanks.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hi everyone

 

Well the RBS offered me charges back plus court costs but not the interest and they asked me not to speak to a third party.

 

I declined on principle and to ensure everyone is aware if I'm successful that they can be.

 

They have now lodged with the court that they are defending all the claim.

 

So it goes to court on Tuesday. I need to file a minute today before 4pm.

 

So basically they're going to court for £20.11 min as that's the interest! They agreed to pay back £180.00 but not the interest. Are they mad ?

 

Well my defence will be that they have offered to pay back the charges but not the interest so I'm hoping the court will agree with me that they're being silly.

 

If anyone can help me though I'd be grateful for support. It may not get to court as they may pay up before Tuesday (is that the usual scenario). I've had a look through the notices but can't find anyone that says the RBS have paid up at the last minute.

 

If someone who is good at legal stuff and who wants to support me is in the Edinburgh area on Tuesday I'd appreciate someone to come along with me. I need advice on what to say should it actually get to court.

 

Very much appreciated if someone can help.

I'll give you even money odds you'll either receive a cheque or offer before tuesday or that they will "forget" to turn up. They are just trying to scare / bully you.

They don't have a leg to stand on in court!! I am from the Edinburgh area and am watching with interest, I would be the same if mine goes to court!!! But filled with all the information from this site, I would be definately willing to take my chances in court and see how much they will get laughed at!!

 

Well done WillowB for winning, again have been watching your outcome!

What stage did they pay out at??

PLEASE don't forget:

 

The interest under Civil Procedure Rules of 8% is NOT an entitlement - it's a privilege which MAY be awarded at the discretion of the Court!

 

The court could in theory take a fairly dim view of a litigant who holds out for the interest having been offered a full settlement. They very rarely do; however it's a possibility.

Hi

 

I dealt with their solicitor in the end and I emailed her to say that "my brother-in-law is an ex bank manager and was somewhat surprised that the RBS were willing to go to court for £20.11. I was writing to her on his advice to see if the matter could be resolved before getting to court and it was only on his advice that I was doing so". I also said that I have a friend who writes for a paper and he would only be too happy to take a story but it wasn't my intention to do so. I also told them thought that I would not sign any agreement saying I would stay quiet. They settled !

 

Someone told me that their main concern seems to be that we go to the papers. If you promise not to or threaten that you will they seem to pay up. This is just what I was told and it is what I did and it worked - it may work for you. But the main thing is don't panic - they are getting to court for most of their cases but they seem to be paying up.
