    • Received the claimants Directions Questionnaire today.  Haven't had anything else through. N180_Redacted.pdf
    • Hi team, I should of really walked away when they said the vehicle had no v5 and I would have to complete v62. They only disclosed v62 form after all documents for finance was signed. However, I needed a vehicle as I was the only driver in my household and my sister was extremly ill and I had to take her to hospital appointments. I purchased a vehicle from big motoring world on the 31/06/24. After driving away the vehicle the very same day I could hear a very distinctive water sloshing noise come from the interior. I then decided to take the vehicle back to branch 15 mins after driving away. The manager came for a ride and said he could hear something but this issue was ‘minor’ and it was my psychologial thinking that made the issue even worse. Manager was very rude. I then took the vehicle home knowing full well it would give me nothing but grief. A day after the rear left tyre started losing air. I know they could say this was probably due to the driver however I believe the issue was present before purchasing vehicle. I called up Audi and my finance company and explained situation. Audi could accomodate me for the 13th for a diagnostic. Finance company told me to take to an independant garage and not BMW. Motonovo been helpful in this situation.  I took vehicle to Audi for a diagnostic. Unfortunantly, they done an Audicam and the technician somewhat resolved the issue without guidance from myself. No charge was applicable as this was a health check. However, I wanted the diagnostic. The car still has water inside. Audi are saying this is a common fault. However, I have no confidence in the vehicle. I have emailed bigassist with all my findings and commanded them to collect the vehicle. Audi shall also be sending me an email next week of the issues they discovered. This was issue pre exisitng. It is still below 30 days, can I still reject? Do i need to send a letter? I have been very direct to BMW that I no longer want the vehicle. please can we assist    
    • lies is all they have @dx to support their adoration of 'little feet'  like trump, farage and bad penny wannabe 'little feet' caligulas and neros, empty of anything worthwhile.
    • I bought my house 2 years ago. The previous owner had died. I continue to recieve parking fines and communication from DVLA in the name of the dead person, despite contacting DVLA via post to inform them I am the new owner of the property. I have sent them proof of purchase and ownership but the communications continue to arrive. Aside from using "return to sender", does anyone have any idea how to stop this and get DVLA to update their records? Not sure if relevant but the Tax class on the vehicle is disabled meaning that the price of vehicle tax is £0 per year. I assume someone is using this to get free vehicle tax which is up to them, but I'm bored of fighting with parking charge companies and getting threatening letters, as whoever is doing this is also not very good at paying for parking.
    • I haven't heard of them asking for photographic evidence in this way before – but I don't think it will really pose a problem. Have you got a history of sending parcels which were then lost and you had to claim for? When you send your letter of claim? Was the item properly declared? Was the item correctly valued? Please answer these questions and then take at least a couple of days reading very thoroughly the stories on this sub- forum. There are lots of them. Read some of the pinned topics at the top which will explain the principles and then read the stories to see other people's experience. Post up your letter of claim in PDF format so we can see what you sent.

    • 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.

I would email the company and say you have only just found the email and you would be very grateful if they could rearrange. Maybe give some guff about limited internet access and include a phone number.

 

i've just emailed them saying something simular, it wasn't a matched vacancy but will the jobcentre find out and what will happen if they do?

i'm not going to tell them and i'm hopeing the company won't either *fingers crossed* :fear:

 

The Jobseeker Direct website is available to everyone, whether on benefits or not. If you didn't tell the Jobcentre you applied, and the company doesn't know you're on JSA, it seems highly unlikely that there would be a problem.

well i put the position in my jobseekers log but i didn't tell them verbally i had applied for it, also i wasn't matched to the vacancy by my adviser and the company as far as i'm aware don't know i'm on jobseekers so i guess it's a waiting game to see if the jobcentre say anything about it :undecided:

If it was just in your JSA diary, I think you'll be fine.

is it only vacancies you were matched to by your adviser that your at risk of sanction from or all vancancies you apply from there?

 

Up until last week or so, JCP had no way to know whether you had applied for any given vacancy if you weren't matched to it and didn't tell them about it. Even if you mentioned it in your fortnightly diary, it's unlikely anyone at JCP would have the time or inclination to check up on you - they see so many people, and there aren't enough staff to keep such close tabs on everyone who claims JSA.

 

Universal Jobmatch may change that to some extent. I'm not sure how, exactly, as it seems the system is still not fully implemented. But that's only just started.

the only involvement the JCP will have with regards to your claim when you are part of the work program is your fortnightly signing unless you are not able to show you have been actively seeking or available as per your JSAg and then you will be referred to a JCP adviser to gather full details regarding a DMA referral.

Work Program are your adviser in place of the JCP adviser iygwim?

If the meeting that you are attending is at the JCP Office, and the purpose of the meeting is to assign you to the Work Programme, then the aim of the session (which will last about 30 minutes) is to provide information, develop an Action Plan with you (where you specify a Job Objective), and when they contact the Work Programme Provider with your details.

 

You should then get a telephone call within a few days from the WP Provider, and invite you to a meeting. Which Provider ? Refer to the following link

www.dwp.gov.uk/docs/cpa-preferred-bidders.pdf

 

At the first Work Programme meeting, the WP provider will ask roughly the same questions which JCP Staff asked you at the allocation meeting, and will then try to persuade you to sign a Data Protection Waiver. It is not necessary for you to sign the document - and even if they threaten you with a sanction, there is no legal obligation for you to sign.

It is important to realise that your only obligation is to Job Centre Plus, and to the Job Seekers Agreement, which will remain active insofar as you remain unemployed. Although Job Centre Plus may require you to attend the Work Programme until such time as they tell you otherwise, as soon as you get a job and sign off, then you can forget about them and need not contact them for any reason.

Most of the WP providers are finishing on Friday until the new year so yes it is likely that you won't hear from them until then :)

You may get the call inviting you to the interview within a few days of the meeting at JCP, and likely that it will be scheduled after New Year.

 

I suggest that you review the information contained within http://consent.me.uk/, understand your rights, start a Twitter account, and follow @boycottworkfare and @refuted - that way you will get a live feed of significant updates. Also, if you need urgent help, you can either post a message her, or short message via Twitter.

 

It is important to realise that the Welfare To Work Staff that you meet are not Consultants (a baloneous term), are broadly on a par with the Clerks that you meet at Job Centre Plus, and are supposed to treat you and other candidates with respect.
