    • next time dont panic and wet yourself and offer payment !! Date of issue – 14 june 2024 date for aos - 2nd july  date to file defence - 16th july      other than the CCA/CRP and if it ever gets that far..a witness statement, you send them NOTHING and dont ever instigate comms with them. esp by email.. i would be sending one final email in reply to theirs above. PLEASE NOTE: email is NOT to be used for any comms with regard to our mutual court claim. else they'll be sending a whole forest of faked agreements/documents to you one minute before a court deadline removing your shace to object/pull them apart as unenforceable etc. dx

    • Unbelievably I can't find it, I will have a really good look for it when I have a bit more time on my day off this week. AS a side note, I emailed them offering a token payment to settle the account and avoid court action, which unsurprisingly they have declined. However their reply states:  A Claim was accepted on 19 June 2024 which means we cannot set up a payment plan just yet. You should have received a claims pack from the Court. We would ask for this to be completed with your offer of repayment and returned to either ourselves or the Court.  You have 21 days for this to be completed and returned in order to avoid a Judgment by Default. This means we would need to receive this by 10 July 2024. I was under the impression it was 19 days from date on the claim form. which was the 14th, which would be 3rd July. Could I use this against them as it seems like they are giving me false information in the hope of getting a judgement by default?

    • 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.

Hello there guys, I was hoping one of you could offer some advice on how to deal with my capquest issue.


I will give you some of the background.


I started receiving hundreds of phone calls (up to 30 a day) from the lovely capquest in October 2010, I ignored this for about a month then decided to tackle them head on. I sent a Modified CAG prove it letter to them and I also sent the FOI letter to my creditor along with the 10 quid. So both the creditor and the DCA are aware of my identity and current address, surely?


Things went quite, I assumed that Capquest could not provide me with any signed agreements and the creditor certainly neglected to include it in the information sent to me. I heard nothing for over two years.


In December I then began receiving letters from "debt managers LTD" who are apparently perusing my debt to capquest, not to my original creditor. Debt managers where threatening doorstep visits so are dispatched a combined prove it a no doorstep collections permitted letter to them. I got a response from their complaints dept. saying that the matter has been referred back to capquest and I have now received another letter from capquest complaints offices.


I am a bit baffled by capquests letter; it is full of apologetic platitudes but does make a strange request. They are asking me to confirm my address history in order to ensure they are pursuing the correct person. Why would they do that? My original creditor is in possession of this information. I am tempted to make a strong worded response along the lines of isn’t it a bit late in the day to be asking if I am the right person and why the hell should I help you do your jobs. Would this be silly? They have given me 30 days to respond which was kind. Should I play ball or just stone wall them and re-demand proof of liability? I am worried about some kind of Capquest ruse.


Your help has been amazing in the past and I was wondering what any of you could recommend.



Cheers :-D

I wouldn't play ball with them! If they are chasing you for a debt, then they know who you are and should provide the proof of liability you requested. If they aren't sure who you are, they shouldn't be chasing you for a debt as such action could eventually amount to a claim in harassment.


Perhaps respond to them, reminding them that you await the response to your proof of liability demand and that you will not provide them with further information until such a time as they do properly respond. Continue that if they do not feel they have enough information to send proof of liability, then they have no other reason to be contacting you and you won't expect to hear from them again.



My Background: I am not legally trained so the advice I offer is as a result of my experiences in business and being dragged through a bankruptcy process by a leading London law firm over a debt that turned out to be false. I won as a litigant in person :-)

Cheers for that guys. I will tell them to do there jobs properly. That I won't provide them with any further information or correspondence until they can prove liability.

Hold fire here, when was the Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 1998 made, there is no Freedom of Information Act request possible in this situation.


There is no obligation to supply an agreement witha SAR any way.


To obtain a copy of an agreement you must make a request under sections 77/78 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. there is a £1 statutory fee payable (without which the request will probably be ignored) the DCA has 12+2 working days to comply.


You do not have to provide the data requested but this situation could have probably been avoided if the proper action were taken at first.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.

In your original post you said you sent a modified CAG "Prove it" letter and an FOI request. Just to confirm, would the prove it letter you sent meet the specifications that BRIGADIER posted above? If not, you might want to include that in your latest response.


As a matter of interest, did your creditor bank the £10 fee you sent them for your SAR or mistaken FOI request? You need to ensure they didn't take that as a payment against your alleged debts. If you sent a subject access request under the data protection act, they should respond with your data within 40 days (or else complain about them to the information commissioner). If you sent an FOI request, they should return your £10.

Templates supplied should have the detail of the actual problem edited into them changing the base of a template may invalidate its' purpose, which is why the letters I draft are for each individual case.

Well hello guys thanks for you reply's. I sent the SAR letter to my original creditors along with a £10 postal order way back in 2009 , I received a ream of statements but no notes or other paper work pertaining to the debt within the 40 days. I only sent the initial letter to capquest and was preparing to send the £1 fee along with the request for a copy of the original CCA.


when examining the fees and PPI payments contained within the statements provided on the debt I found that at 70% of the remaining debt is made up of these.


I admit I have let this lie for a couple of years but I have received no response from capquest and have had not further correspondence from my creditor since I receiving the response from the SAR.


Would a reply consisting of a refusal to provide any address history along side a request for CCA documents be the best course of action?


Many thanks
