    • Hi Honeybee13 No i 100% did not received reminder if i did it would have set alarms bells ringing that something wrong 
    • Hopefully Man in the Middle will be able to pop in today, but he does have a day job. Also the SJNP notes say they sent a reminder i did definitely receive this Are you saying you did receive the reminder or you didn't please? HB  
    • Thank you Man in the Middle, Everyone I know this may not make a difference but is it worth mentioning the fact i did believe i sent everything correctly but with all going on with my mother at the did not realise that stamp was not valid? Also the SJNP notes say they sent a reminder i did definitely receive this if i did it would have prompted me to realise something was wrong and rectified. I have to fill the form in online today so any more advice is gratefully received. The area is Gwent in South Wales it states on the form if i plead not guilty then send me the date of the trial Sorry as i've stated previously totally new to this and thank you for you assistance  i know you cannot say for certain but realistically by pleading the above what would be the most likely outcome be ? is it still likely to be 3 points and £100 fine ? or am i likely to receive higher and more fees?
    • Vennells evidence starts this morning at 09.45. Nick Wallis has made an interesting observation in his blog yesterday or today that yesterday's witness, Alwen Lyons, implied that forensic accountants Second Sight weren't doing a good job on their investigation of SPMs' complaints about Horizon. Nick's theory is that not being good at a job seems to be telling the Post Office things it doesn't want to hear. And that having been told things they didn't want to hear about the Horizon system, that training was terrible and their investigators and prosecuters weren't good enough, they decided the solution was to sack Second Sight and buy more expensive advice in the hopes of getting an answer they liked.    
    • Thanks for the quick response! the way they’ll have found so far is LinkedIn, I use this for business and work etc. I’ll have to look into the settings and see if I can make this more private I have no other social media.    so to confirm, best step is to directly mail my address to emirates and HSBC directly then ignore idrww and judge and priestly? should I be telling both the uk collection agencies that I’m only going to be dealing with the banks directly and not with them?    would you recommend creating a monthly payment plan to the banks or not?    Thanks,

    • 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 Guitaralf,

Could you possibly email me your copy fo the ESA3, I've been requesting one since the 5th of November (even by 2 registered letters to DWP), not received any requested by numberous telephone calls and my local DWP have never heard of the form!! My housing benefit is suspended pending my confirmation of benefits!!!

Kind regards,

Xtina

ESA have made such a mess with our claim that our council tax has been put on hold since last July x have been to my local MP for help but was a waste of time. Now I am in arrears and they won't let me pay my council tax until they sort my account out. I have been querying whether we are on the right ESA for two years and still have no idea. My hubby as terminal cancer and this stress is ridiculous. Any advice on how I can sort this out?

I've asked the site team to move this to a separate thread so that you get a response from some of the experts on here.

 

To help, could you clarify that it is your council tax benefit that is on hold? Have the council given any reasons? Is the ESA contribution based or income based?

I've got a copy of ESA3 form, no password and printable if anyone needs it. Mods let me know if it's okay to attach it.

That would be useful, thank you. I assume you've taken off any personal info it might have had.

 

I'll start a new thread, didn't know this one had been reported.

Could you explain more about what is happening with the ESA claim? As asked earlier, is it contribution or income based? Are you currently being paid ESA at all? If not, have you been given any explanation for this? What did your MP attempt to do for you, and what did you ask him or her to do?

 

Why won't the council let you pay your council tax until they "sort the account out"? Do you mean that you aren't able to pay - which would be perfectly understandable?

A Big thank you again for Cookie for the printable version of the ESA3 as even after numerous phone calls to request the form and, promises that it will be sent out in good time before my ESA ends, this did NOT happen. Apparently the form is also unavailable from Jobcentre Plus offices in person. So, with empty promises is this a deliberate attempt to prevent re-claims or stalling for time? This would appear to be the case.

Thank you so much for the printable form Cookie, it's ridiculous the DWP one is locked from printing!!

You're very welcome. I'm glad it's come in use. The more people it helps, the more glad I am that I posted it up.

 

The less I say about the DWP the better in this case.

 

Kind regards
