    • I returned an item bought from nike online but I have still not received the refund back into my account. When I contacted nike they said that I need to contact evri as the parcel is not delivered back to the warehouse and they can't process refund until than. When I contact evri they say that since its been more then 5 days I need to contact the merchant to receive my refund. i dont know what i should do in this case that's why i have come here to get some advice.
    • hoho how did i know it's barclays.... clickme Programmable Search Engine CSE.GOOGLE.COM ultimately there is nothing he can do until they 'resolve' the issue but it will be resolved and sorted. barclays have numerous ways to communicate with them due to illnesses that remove vocal communication. the best is the barclays app which you install on his phone. or on his PC/computer /content/dam/lifestyle-images/personal/barclays-journal/di_moment_woman_hearing_aid_phone_3_1.large.medium_quality.jpg Ways to contact us when you have accessibility needs | Barclays WWW.BARCLAYS.CO.UK If illness or disability means you prefer to communicate with us in a particular way, we’ll do everything we can to help. they might just be wanting confirmation it was him and then the A/C will be opened. dx
    • It's Barclays.  I went in to see a manager who does know me and who also knows I was previously helping this guy.  Unfortunately this particular bank do not communicate by email or letter.  Only by phone with the account holder.  It was the 2 ATM withdrawals and 1 transfer that appear to have blocked the account.  He has no-one with authority in the uk to help. He gave me authority to help and use his account to manage his affairs/ pay bills etc - but not in the format the bank require - which is that he sits with me in a branch and fills out forms.  He can't do that. I didn't understand at first why he couldn't ring the bank. Now I do. Having tried to speak to him. He's incapable of talking properly.  Dementia.   I explained this to the manager.  But he said theres nothing I can do without PoA.    Anyway, it's very sad. And I'm very upset as I've known him since I was a teen  The fact you say the council can do nothing about CTax arrears is a reprieve
    • this is not making much sense but thats not usual for the threads from you... the fact that he is abroad and ill ? he cant use a phone..... he cannot easily communicate vocally so phone is out? fullstop? can he not use a chat online facility, most banks websites have them? can you not simply write to the bank and explain this? all banks must under banking rules have methods other that voice to communicate with them 24/7 do you know the reason why the account was blocked yet? is this bank a UK bank? if this has been going on for months now you should have logically already worked these things out for yourself.......
    • well i see what they respond with from carreg as i paid them for the plate and they put it with a wrong name which is a joke   i did try dvla to register the v750 to change name to my account but say its already been joined to another account    hopefully carreg get it sorted and get a new v750 sent out

    • 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.

Barclays is selling most of its ATMs as it prefers to focus on more profitable activities like manipulating LIBOR. I used one in Gibraltar which I was told belonged to Barclays. It debited my account for the sterkling equivalent of 800 euros. But it dispensed no cash I would not have risked so much if I had niot thought that it belonged to Barclays. Actually it ias owned by Raphael`s Bank, a London bank which specialises in foreign exchange.

 

I went to Barclays branch in Gibraltar to complain. They tried to send me away but I said that i was a Barclays customer and had used a Barclays Debit Card. After two hours on the phone, they faxed a claim form which I filled out. I spent another 2 hours at their branch in Faro, Portugal trying to expedite matters.

 

Nothing happenned for 60 days. When I got home I found a letter asking for more information and saying my case would be dropped if I had not replied within 7 days. This was obviously impossible as they should have known since they had my fax from Gibraltar on file .

 

After more complaints I received a fraud form from my Branch which asked me to sign away my legal rights, if nio spare cash was found in the ATM. I refused to sign it.

 

I phoned Raphael`s who told me that they still had the cash but that Barclays had not contacted them. Barclays told me that it was too late to contact Raphael after 60 days. I wrotwe to the new CEO, who claimed that he had not received the letter. I was told that the bank had written back biut that certainly never arrived.

 

The matter was only resolved, without any additional compensation for my worry, loss of holiday and so on after I went to the Press

 

I personally am of the opinion that Barclays has a deliberate policy of trying to fob off ATM incidents, whether in its own or other bank`s machines. This includes the use of dubious fob-off letters.

 

The only answer is to go into the Branch and lengthen the queues. I have already cut up my Barclaycard because of their excessive charges.

I do not believe that this is mere incompetence. I suspect that it is quite deliberate. They prefer to let their customers down and save some money, rather than go to the trouble of checking that the machine has extra notes at the end of the day. All ATM operators do this as a matter of course, every day. but they are unable to tell which customers have been short changed, or as in my case not dispensed at all.

 

Take the matter to a newspaper and ask them to publish your comments. That is the only way in my opinion that Barclays could be made to react to my loss of over £600, which was sitting all the time at another English bank.

 

Yes they are indolent but they are also scheming, in my personal experience.

 

The Bob Diamond culture lives on.

HI BM,

 

We have seen many instances over a few years of the banks denying liability with ATM problems.

 

They put the onus on you to prove them wrong which is difficult to do.

 

Same when folk have fraudulent debits from a/c's - they assume you are responsible unless you can prove innocence, which is contrary to their own banking guidelines. :-x

 

I'm to see you had the case resolved in the end but it's wrong that you had to jump through all the hoops to get there.

 

:-)

We could do with some help from you

t is rarely possible for the customer to prove that an ATM has not dispensed cash In this case, Raphael`s Bank has confirmed that there was a malfunction, but I cannot claim the money directly from them and Barclays was too incompetent and lazy to do so. Instead they sent me some dirty trick letters in the hope of fobbing me off.

 

They failed but I won through only with the help of the Press.
