    • 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.

Ref Account: xxxxx (Now Closed)


Please can you help me? I wrote to Vodafone about 10 months ago regarding a default on my account but had a letter return saying the default can not be removed.


In closing the account in 2010 I had a final payment to make of £106.21 the bill being sent on 17th Sept 2010.


I then received a notice of default on 21st Sept 2010 stating I had 14 days to pay the full amount or the matter would be taken further. This payment was made by myself to Vodafone on 28th Sept 2010 (within the 14 day period) but unfortunately I used a Vodafone account number that was already listed in my Internet Banking Payments page through HSBC from previous payments, listed as Vodafone Corp.


I found out after that the account numbers had changed in which to make payment but HSBC had not updated them.


At the time I did not know that this was incorrect and this payment left my account but was never recognised by yourselves, it must be still there somewhere in the system.


As a result the correct department never received the payment and passed the matter onto a debt collection agency.


As soon as I received notification that the payment had gone to the wrong account


I phoned Vodafone and explained what had happened and the lady on the other end told me not to worry as she would look into where the payment had gone and move it accordingly. After 2 months of further letters from the debt collection agency and numerous phone calls between myself and Vodafone I was told I would have to pay the amount again and reclaim the extra payment back at a later date, and that would resolve the issue, so I made a second payment of £106.21 on the 23rd Nov 2010 to Fredrickson International but have never claimed the 1st payment back.


I have since tried to take out a new mortgage and been refused due to my credit score so looked into it and noticed on my credit report that I now have a default payment against the account for this misunderstanding and in the current climate is really harming my chances of getting credit for the next 6 years.


I was told that I can apply to have this overturned as I did originally make the payment on time and in full and have since paid the full amount again and so have paid twice.


Is it possible for someone to look into overturning the default mark on my credit score please and get back to me as soon as possible so I may resurrect my mortgage application.


I hope to come back to Vodafone in the future and hope that this matter can be resolved as quickly as possible.


If there is any further information you would like me to provide please don’t hesitate to ask, I have all letters from Vodafone and Fredrickson Int. plus bank statements showing payment in full and within the 14 day period.Thankyou for any help

I have formatted your post for easier reading and removed personal identifiers.


There is a Vodafone rep on this site...you can use this method to get him on board


Hi CAG members,

We thought it would be nice to introduce ourselves and to assure you all that our presence on CAG is with the very best of intentions.

vodafone UK has recently introduced a dedicated Web Relations Team which is keen to seek out customers who’re having difficulties with their accounts and feel that they have no other place to turn to than CAG and other consumer forums and blogs.

Naturally, it’s not possible for us to help directly with account specific queries on CAG and as such we would encourage those members who feel we can help them to contact us privately at customer.care@help.vodafo ne.co.uk quoting ‘WRT135 – CAG Forum’ in the subject line to ensure that it reaches the Web Relations Team.

When emailing us we would also ask that you either provide us with a link to your post or thread – if you’ve posted in another member’s thread please also provide your CAG username so that we can check what your query is.


When you have done this you will receive a reference number back. Please post that reference number in this forum and Lee the Voda rep will pick it up and may be able to help you.

Hi Hace11,


Thanks for coming back to me.


I will probably need the bank statement showing the initial payment you tried to make in order to get this investigated further. As such, please keep this safe.


As of yet I've been unable to locate the account in question and so to assist me further could you reply to my email from yesterday as soon as possible?


Kind regards,




Web Relations Team
