    • 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

 

I went Bankrupt in June 2010 included in this bankruptcy was my Uncle Buck Payday Loan. Uncle Buck were informed of this and were sent a copy of my Bankruptcy Order. However after a year or so i was continually harrassed by Uncle Buck demanding payment etc. I emailed them and told them of my Bankruptcy gave them my Bankruptcy number and sent another Bankruptcy order to them.

 

All emails from them stopped until early February when i went to visit my parents i opened a letter addressed to me from Motor Mile Finance saying that Uncle Buck had sold my debt to them and i wass to make a payment immediately, they have also sent me quitre a few emails to my old email account which i have just found threatening to send doorstop collectors. I immediatley phoned them and informed them that i had been made Bankrupt and the Uncle Buck were informed of this on numerous occasions, the lady asked me to provide the bankruptcy Ref, which i did. She then said she will look it up and if i didn't hear anuything within 24 hours then it would mean its all sorted.

 

About 2 weeks later i recieved a phone call from my mum saying that she had opened a letter by accident that was addressed to me and it was from Motor Mile Finance stating that they were going to send out Door Stop Collection Agents unless immediate payment of my debt was made. I phoned them immediately and said i had told them that i was banrupt etc. She then informed me i was not on the register and would have to provide proof that i was made bankrupt, i have now provided this via email attachment and still they are sending me emails. I though that when you were made bankrupt that the companies could not contact or harrass you, and i would have thought that they would not be able to sell the debt on either. Is there anything else i can do to stop them contacting me and sending letters to my parents?

 

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Tell them that the debt does not exist and send a full comlaint to their complaince officer. Also make a full complaint with the oft.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..
