    • Hi unclebulgaria67,  yes this is a review,  she doesn't really see the GP much as such, its only med reviews and if she is unwell apart from the diagnosed illnesses, she sees nurses for the diabetes checks etc, there is nothing new they can offer her so its a matter of managing and getting through the best she can, which is where I come in as her carer.  She had 12 months cbt for bipolar back in 2009, there are no new things added to cbt so there is nothing they can teach her there, her fibromyalgia is treated with pain relief, there is no nhs physical treatment as only a specialised massage is thought to help but the relief is short lived so the nhs don't provide it (understandably) there is no cure for the condition and we have tried everything.  I will just do my usual best and be there for any assessment which I will request is recorded and hope for the best. Thank you for replying.
    • I have not used a comparison site for some time now... Do they really pass your info on? When it says "we sometimes use your information for third parties to make your life better..."  Basically we just sell your data to anyone who wants it?! 
    • Well who hasn't had a few debts passed on eh?!  And who really wants to give the light of day to any of these scumbags. I accumulated 35+ yellow tickets NTK when parking at my shop premises and they have definitely ben passed on now, not that I care, because in my opinion they should never have been granted access to patrol that car park. 
    • I've asked you a number of questions in my post and you haven't addressed them. Please would you do this. It's a bit difficult having to chase people for answers all the time   Just to add to my original doom and gloom scenario, even if the vehicle is returned to you and you accept it – if it happens to you have received any parking fines or anything else during the period which it has been out of your possession, then you could also be challenged for that. If the purchaser does contact you again and you eventually decide to accept the return of the vehicle, I certainly wouldn't do it without having first ascertained the name and address of the purchaser – and verified this by some evidence – and also get a signed statement that they were indeed in possession of the vehicle from XXX date until XXX date. All very complicated and distasteful – but I'm afraid that this is the consequence of what your daughter has done
    • Not really. The signs have to go where they are practical. Every single yellow should have a time plate, and the motorist has to look for it - you can just say you couldn't see it. If it's there, and I assume the CEO took a photo of it, then the driver has neglected his obligation to find out what the restriction is before parking.   The only way you might be able to argue this is if the sign is next to a separate stretch of yellow line - eg, separated from the one he parked on by, say, a road junction or a parking bay. Every individual stretch of line needs its own sign.

A little more background on the transaction would be helpful. Did you make the purchase through Amazon Marketplace?

Tthe purchase was from Amazon.co.uk However, it was despatched from the U.S.A.When I checked out during the payment for the laptop plus postage and packing there was no indication of additional charges.

Before you do anything, double check that the Fedex invoice references the correct delivery details, the correct item and prices etc. If something is out of place it's likely a fraudulent attempt (by a fraudster, not Fedex) to get you to pay unnecessary fees. If you're still uncertain you may wish to verify it with Fedex direct; if you do contact them, go via their homepage (http://www.fedex.com/gb/ukservices/), not the details on the letter/email which could be fake.

 

Assuming the notice is genuine, the fees demanded are most likely import duty/VAT. My best guess is that you used the Amazon UK Marketplace, but contracted with a US based seller. Amazon UK took your money as a payment processor, not supplier, with the laptop actually being supplied by the US merchant, which is why import duty/VAT is applicable. Check your receipt to see if this seems correct or if there's any mention of a third party (person or company).

 

Unfortunately, if you are the importer, you are legally obliged to pay any import/VAT due and will have most likely agreed to this in the terms of the sale and/or agreed to reimburse Fedex when the delivery was signed for.

 

I completely agree that Amazon and/or the actual seller should have advised you of these additional costs before the sale. If they didn't their customer service is atrocious, but probably not atrocious enough to be illegal.

 

It's definitely worthwhile contacting Amazon and the seller with a complaint and you should be able to contact the seller for a refund (likely excluding postage) if it's soon enough (usually within 7 business days). You may also be able to negotiate a contribution towards the import duty/VAT fees from the seller as you'll both have to weigh up the disadvantages and costs involved of returning the laptop.

 

Good luck.

This is another little trick from Amazon UK. When you order a product from outside the EU, you'd have to pay customs charges, but there's no indication on the Amazon website
