    • You're like, super helpful and unhelpful at the same time lol.   What do I search for, I searched form 4, and nothing, I searched claiming compensation and nothing about this.   I can't find the top squares logo.   Can you post a link or tell me what to search.   Sorry if I'm slow.
    • use our custom google search box  click our top squares logo it should appear on that page   dx
    • Apologies, I haven't used a forum for years!!   I defo wish to keep the 2 issues separate, sorry!   My only issue I need help with is the increased compo for marstons - if possible.   I don't know anything about claiming compo etc. (I only recently found out one of the NHS biggest costs are NDA payouts)   I don't know what form 4 is; so far, they've offered £250 and I haven't accepted or denied it.   So yeah, can you forward me to some more info?   Also, usually I'm good at google etc. but I can't find many stories on this stuff, regarding PCN/TFL etc.   Thanks again!
    • ok things are getting clearer...   I've merged 2 of your posts for clarity and removed the swearing, (behave please) I've also taken down the two images you posted should you wish to post things up please use PDF so we can zoom easily and don't forget to redect them read upload carefully.   I think you need to continue to keep the two thing sep. those being increased compo for marstons- if possible ( if you are raising a form 4? complaint through the court - it might be better you don't? - they are very hard to justify and can be costly - so the fact it might not be moving forward could be a good thing, but listen to others here too) and the issue of the PCN wasn't justified - which you need to further expand on please.   the more info you post up the better please but please use multipage PDF files only and carefully redact them    
    • Thanks for trying btw! It's kinda in 2 parts.   1 is that the PCN wasn't justified in the first place and I wasn't aware it had escalated. I received the initial fine from TFL which I challenged and heard nothing back from (for 5 months). Then another letter from a separate PCN which made me email TFL to inquire what was going on but again, heard nothing back.   (BTW I can see how confusing this is so thanks again for trying)   So, I had no idea my car was at the risk of being taken - that's the first part.   No 2. is:   I got a phone call saying my car was on the back of a truck round the corner from mine (they hadn't left any notices or anything, and the car was parked directly outside my house). My friend said they were attaching the straps and securing it to the van (so I think they got it on the back of the van and moved it before securing it).   When I ran round the corner I saw the EA's van. I went upto it and asked what was going on. He was rude and told me to go away. Then after I kept knocking he got out the van and was aggressive and refused to ID himself or tell me why he had my car.   He shouted at me, was rude and unprofessional, he then left with my car. I complained to Marstons and asked for the bodycam footage.   They gave me the footage but it was clearly edited and cut short (because in the beginning of the footage he was the most aggressive).   They then told me he wasn't required to have the camera turned on when he's in the van, only when he's 'actively pursuing a warrant' and I was only allowed the footage I was in. (which is 2 different things) So I asked them to clarify which is true.   Anyway, I reviewed the footage and sent in my complaint (talking about what happened in the footage) They replied and said they watched the footage and disagreed with everything I said.   So I wrote a more in depth response with the CIVEA code to reference + the TFL EA guide etc.    Then they asked for more time, called me and finally apologised and admitted he had acted untoward and was in the wrong.   They then offered me the goodwill payment.   This has taken up weeks of my time, caused me serious trauma and PTSD and even after I complained WITH video evidence, they still initially denied it which means they officially lied, on record, while representing TFL.   I told TFL what was happening they said I had to continue with Marstons etc.   £250 goodwill isn't enough, the car cost £800 to get out, the suspension is messed up and I'd like to claim compensation for everything.   I don't know if that makes me sound like i'm money grabbing or whatever but they shouldn't be allowed to get away with it.   The police had to come before they could call an ambulance cause I was having a panic attack and it was a HORRIBLE experience.    So any help would be great please    I have the whole file from Resolver in a ZIP file but it's a lot of writing and I think you've read enough of my writing to last a life time!   I did a statutory declaration of OOT, got it signed by the court etc. but it was rejected.   I then tried to take them to court but it cost £250 I think which I don't have. You can get it for free if your low income but they wanted bank statements that I couldn't get. They're waiting for me to reply with documents to get a free court date.    did you receive any of the pcn's - was that why you appealed? - Yes, sorry!   unless it's trying secure a greater level of compo from marstons? - Yes, sorry!   For the record I just saw this pop up, read it and now feel much less guilty about my enquiry!

Hi,

 

I live in the UK and I'm due to receive an international wire transfer for the total amount of $223.00 which includes $25.00 to cover the cost of the wire transfer.. Is $25.00 enough ? The cost I'm owed is £125.00 and how do I pay the cost. Is it taken out automatically or do I have to intervene before the payment is complete

 

I believe the payment will be sent tomorrow from Orange County, California from a multi billion dollar company into my Barclays account thanks

It's not a spoof, Which is why I said it's coming from a multi billion dollar company lmao just encase anyone thought wire transfer eh it must be a [problem] etc. No this payment is coming from a well known corporation in way of a refund I'm just curious as I've never received an international payment before if $25 is able to cover the cost.. Roughly ?

Well long story short,

 

Product failed under warranty

which resulted in being escalated to the head office in America.

 

Who finally after months worth of emails are now willing to refund the money.

 

I don't want name drop company just in case it get's caught up in web clipping and/or web cache or possibly seen by company's employees.

 

The moneys not been sent yet

 

I just need to know the cost

 

as they've requested my bank details

 

so I went onto Barclays and looked up what they needed to complete the transaction

and also reminded them it would cost

cause that's what it says on Barclays page

but it doesn't state what fee percentage or how much so the response I received was an additional $25 to cover any service charges.

 

So I'm assuming that's enough for admin fee plus currency conversion ?

all you need to do is give them:

 

your sort code

your account number

the Account name [person who holds the account -the details on a debit card or statement]

 

there is NO NEED for ANY charge at all

 

just tell them to use BACS [internet banking transfer from THEIR banking site]

I've already provided them with that info.

I gave sort code, account number, name/address,

my banks local branch address IBAN and SWIFTBIC.

 

They've stated a wire transfer will be sent to your account tomorrow.

Don't ask why it's coming from America as they've service centers with refund departments all over the world but hey I guess that's how it works..

 

All I'm concerned about is if it's enough to cover the fee and will it require me to authorize that fee

 

Btw they've provided an additional $25 out of their money to cover the fee

so really the cost is not an issue

 

I just don't want any disappointment that the money is tied up cause the fee wasn't paid or something.

. I do online banking so I guess it's easy to keep tabs on my account

International transfers are not free - there are always fees, exchange rate spreads or commissions payable but the question is who pays.

 

To make international wire transfers, you need the receiver's name, the amount, SWIFT BIC and IBAN that you've supplied (plus SWIFT intermediary code for some banks, e.g. Nationwide). So no problem there. The sender can choose 'BENeficiary', 'SHAred' or 'OURs' for fees, i.e. no, some or all fee due. The norm is shared, so if your bank charges a receiving fee, it will be deducted.

 

Nationwide and a couple of others charge no receiving fee at all. Most others charge £15 or so (but they should be able to tell you - it's a simple answer to a simple question). Therefore I reckon the $25 will be about right, and if anything you might be slightly up. The money will appear in your account automatically and any fee charged will simply be taken off.

Hey thank you, I appreciate your informative yet simple answer :-) I just needed a little reassurance peace of mind that the money will arrive smoothly

Yeah your right, In that case maybe we should shut the CAG forum down as the search engine will provide us all with up to date information huh ?
