    • Hi, I have found this group very helpful hence I am here seeking help and advice.   I got myself into a situation where I have now more than £50k in unsecured debts (personal loans & credit cards) and things are now getting out of control as I am struggling to make payments. This is purely my own created situation and I am taking 100% responsibility for it. I am keen to get out of this situation as soon as possible hence I would appreciate any help and advice in this process. I am employed at the moment and don’t want to risk going into IVA or bankruptcy as this would risk losing my job. Being sole bread earner of my family, I cannot afford to lose my job. I have been trying to keep up with the payments so far and had few missed payments instances until 3/4 months ago but got caught up with missed payments somehow using my savings. All my debts are still with original lenders. However I know I am getting into same situation again shortly and won’t be able to get out of it again. I have started exploring Debt Management Plan (DMP) option through StepChange but haven’t submitted it yet. Based on budgeting, I have around £820 available to make payments to all lenders after taking care of all other essential expenses. This is definitely lot more affordable than what I am currently paying to different lenders. 1. Is DMP right option for me in current situation? 2. what are the negative consequences of availing DMP? 3. is there something else that I can do to get out of this situation? I’m determined to clear out all my debts but need bit of breathing space and time. Let me know please if you need any additional information. Thanks in advance for all your help and guidance. MM

    • 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.

Hi guys,

 

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with a toothfairy problem. I've had a number of payday loans that have become a problem in the last month or two. I've contacted all of them and come to a reasonable conclusion with all of them excluding Toothfairy. I've contacted toothfairy a lot of times both before and after the default. The outstanding balance on my due date was £544. I offered a repayment of £50 a month and on the due date I made the first payment of £50.00. Since then I have received a number of texts and emails from toothfairy, NDR and now Marshall Hoare debt collection all of which seem to be a part of Toothfairy. Up until today each time I contact any of these people I have had an automatic system response saying that payment plans are not acceptable and they want payment in full. This morning however I have received an email from Marshall Hoare saying that they will accept a payment plan of £150 a month. The problem is however that instead of it being for the £544 I originally owed them it is now for £1,090 which if you include the payment of £50 I have already made them is now over double what I owe already. I've made a complaint to NDR which they have said they will respond to within a month however in the mean time I'd like some advice as to what happens next from anyone who has had dealings in the past. I assume if this goes to court then I can argue about the unfair fees however I'd rather it didn't get that far, but also I have no intention of paying back over double the amount I am due. It hasn't even been a month since my due date currently! Any advide would be amazing.

Thanks

Lucy

Do not worry, they won't take you to Court.

 

All you owe is amount borrowed plus 1 month interest plus initial default fee (that only applies if that fee is fair) minus any payment already made, all other charges are unenforceable penalty charges and they can't charge you interest after the original due date as there is no more credit agreement as that ended on the due date.

Thank you for that. I have written back to them saying I only accept the original amount owed and I will continue to repay them 50.00 a month until it has cleared.

 

Has anyone managed any kind of settlement in the end with Toothfairy? I've seen a lot of posts about them but not many with a resolution - it would be nice to hear whether anyone has managed to come to any agreement with them.

Not really seen much in the way of success stories, best most of us can hope for is pay off what we actually owe and then just sit back and laugh at the fantasy demands of these muppets.
