    • forget CAB you might as well phone bt back as thats about as useless as they'll be.   you can't have a rolling 24mts contract', bt rolling contracts are month to month only, thats an industrywide accepted definition of what rolling means.   what happened here is she earlier changed her 'package' removing skt to reduce costs. as with all providers that invoked = means she entered into a new 24mts contract.   she latterly phone to cancel that contract, and thus bt charged her the cancellation fee/loss of revenue over the raining months of the contract.   the fact that she owes them 'this money' but didn't pay it, then entitled them sadly to cancel the mobile contract, which sadly again they allowed to do.   rock and a hard place if she wants to keep the same mobile number.   Or as long as her phone is not imie blocked by bt (in otherwords she purchased from BT under the mobile contract) but simply locked to BT (which is easily gotten around for a small fee at many shops/market stalls or if someone is tech savvy follow the guides on youtube to unlock the phone for an even smaller fee. and wack a new sim in it.   as for the £800 bill simply ignore them. they'll sell the debt on  and if anyone like Lowells or anyother powerless DCA debt buyer wants to do court, it's easily defended we've not lost one case like that here.        
    • The 1st 2 calls were the normal scam calls. get a truecall box   the PDC stuff you ignore their letter States our client three whom if you wanted too you deal with directly.   Until/unless whenever it gets sold on too and they eventually send a letter of claim you maintain radio silence    
    • hi all. bit of advice please. I had a Three contract up until November last year. At £11pcm for 24mths. Paid every month on time via their online portal. When I ported over, I received a letter from Three thanking me for being a customer blah blah blah.. It also said IF I owed anything a final bill will be sent. No final bill ever received - I get a phone call around the first week in December form an Indian sounding man who was extremly difficult to understand. Said he was calling from Three, and wanted me to confirm my details - something of which I didnt as something didnt sit right. He said I could log into my account and review my bill as I owed money and then hung up. After the call I thought I'd best log into my account just in case.  Couldnt log in. Account access denied. Logged on to chat - they said as I ported over and I was no longer a customer my access was suspended. Couple of weeks later I had another call from a local area number and answered again it was some Indian guy telling me I owed money, wanting me to confirm details. I refused and he said details will be sent out to me to my email on account and my home address as it was important. Once again nothing.. 15th Dec I received an email from PastDue in my name RE Three. Email stated they were contacting me about Three an I should receive a letter soon regards to this matter. Says about visiting their website.  22nd Jan another email form Pastdue. Stating they have yet to receive a response to the letter, and they had already sent me an email about this. We will continue to contact you until this matter is resolved. Again asks me to login. 23rd Jan letter received dated 13th Jan. Titled "We are here to help keep your Three Services"  Claiming I owed "Airetime Balance £201.43" and contract period was 26/11/2019 to 25/11/2020 States "We have been appointed by Three to recover the amount of £201.43. If you pay this amount in full Three may be able to waive the cancellation fee and reconnect their service for you" - what cancellation fee / re connection??? I ended the contract giving the 30days notice and paying the last bill.. Then the normal crap about its important to pay. If I'm experiencing difficulties etc. Now both December and  January Credit reports from ClearScore, Credit Karma, Credit Expert, Totally Money and Equifax all show Three as Closed and balance as Zero. (Date Satisfied /closed 17th Nov, bal 0, last updated 30th Nov) I've had nothing from Three. As far as I'm concerned I owe nothing as no final bill and no access to the portal. Should I email PastDue and do a prove it & attach proof of Credit Reports being £0 or do I do something else?

    • 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 there. I recently had my monitor replaced (with exactly the same model) under warranty from LG. No complaints there. They actually have a good customer service system. The trouble is, the problem is still exactly the same. LG have conceded that it is a compatibility issue with my system, as opposed to a faulty monitor. Of course, they wanted to leave it there, but there's no way I'm going to just accept this and be stuck with an incorrectly functioning monitor. The help desk guy said he had submitted a VOC (? I think that's right - it's basically a message to head office about the problem, leaving it at their discretion as to whether they sort me out or not). Apparently they will contact me in a couple of days with their "decision". Do I have the right to demand that they replace it with a different but equivalent model until the problem is solved? I believe that a (perhaps newer) different model will solve the problem.

 

I'm thinking yes - as I said to them, if the monitor came with a warning or caveat that it may not be compatible with certain systems, then fair enough. But of course it doesn't. The way I see it, it's very little financial skin off the nose of a huge multinational corporation to just give me satisfaction, even if it costs them a couple of quid.

 

I'll fight tooth and nail to get a result, on principle and on finances! I'm not rich enough to suck it up and buy a new one.

 

Any ideas? Thanks.

First off your case is with the seller of the monitor and not LG, they are only bound by the warranty they set. With regards to action you can take it would be deemed 'faulty' as it is not fit for the purpose it was purchased for. As a replacement and repair will not correct the issue they should be able to offer you an exchange / refund purchase date depending.

 

When did you purchase the monitor, what is the actual fault? Is the fault not with the graphics card?

Hi. Thanks for the reply. Your advice tallies with what I was told by the Citizens Advice Consumer Service. I've done a lot of testing and replacing components and also sent the graphics card back to Asus, who returned it checked with no faults. I've also tried another monitor, which works perfectly with the same system. This is how me and LG reached the conclusion that it's (an admittedly unusual) compatibility problem.

 

I bought the monitor from Micro Anvika, a fairly major shop in Tottenham Court Road, London on 28th January 2010. The LG warranty is 3 years, but not sure how that works with the shop's warranty/return system. I'm anticipating that the last thing Micro Anvika will do is refund/replace it, just because I know how these places operate. I think the first thing they will do is say that it's down to LG and not them. I'd lay money on it. However, I haven't tried them yet because I'm still waiting for LG's response.

 

The CACS suggested writing a stern letter (assuming MA don't play ball), quoting the Sale Of Goods Act etc.

 

Does that sound about right?

The short version: It's incompatible with my system - there's nothing wrong with it as such. I'm a PC builder/expert so I've eliminated all possibilities. It's faulty in as much as it doesn't work as it should on my otherwise non-faulty PC system.

Theres very little leeway then if its incompatible. There can only be a few things wrong.

 

Tbh though you could try the SOGA route, but be aware, you are very close to running out of time on it.

I'm going to pursue all angles, though. I mean, in the end , it's not fit for purpose, through no fault of my own. I'm quite good at kicking up a stink when it comes to refunds/consumer rights etc. Sometimes people sort you out just to get rid of you if you persist enough!

 

Thanks for all help so far, by the way.

I mean regarding communicating with the shop. For a replacement monitor through LG's warranty it becomes trickier.

 

I myself was trained in pc component repair and advanced electronics through the university of manchester, which means i can repair something down to the basic capacitors and chips, and even i had troublesome dealings with manufacturers when the people i repaired items for preferred to get it done under warranty than have a third party take their equipment apart and rebuild it.

Actually disregard my post about time limits. It seems that the limit for making the initial claim is 6 years now.

You might be very good at kicking up a stink, but you still haven't told us whats wrong, incompatible is not much use.

 

What does it do, or not do? The more technical the better.
