    • I believe it is helpful to seek guidance from a range of places and decide on the validity of the sources and frequency of responses which are most helpful. A single voice can be a dangerous thing. As, of course, can groupthink. Scott, it feels like £4k on a solicitor for a £1.5k bill is overkill. Were we back in time I'd suggest small claims court as your claim sounds like it may be straightforward? By all means add that phrase on. I also suggest you contact the court and go and sit in on a couple of similar cases to get a better understanding before you shell out.

    • 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,

 

Cashgenie keep rolling over my account automatically.

 

On 25/07/2012 I applied for a £150 loan, which came with a £45 interest charge for a total of £195 repayable. Since then, I have paid:

 

25/08/2012: £45

25/09/2012: £45

25/10/2012: £45

25/11/2012: £45

25/12/2012: £45

25/01/2013: £45

25/02/2013: £45

25/03/2013: £45

25/04/2013: £45

 

That's £405! What's the best way of breaking this cycle? They've had more than enough money from me now, but I'd rather not end up with another default on my credit file.

what were the original terms for how many months?

 

if they are doing this by CPA

 

get it back!

 

We have been telling people to put a letter into their bank instructing them not to make any payments under any circumstances to these companie

http://whatconsumer.co.uk/visa-debit-chargeback/- it works!

 

banks MUST follow written intructions from their customers !

This fsa guide has now been updated:

 

http://www.fsa.gov.uk/pubs/consumer_...ghts_guide.pdf

 

Here's the text:

 

Cancelling a regular

card payment:

 

When you give your credit or debit card details to a company and authorise them to take regular payments from your account,

such as for a gym membership or magazine subscription,

it is known as a ‘recurring transaction’ or ‘continuous payment authority’.

These are often confused with direct debits, but do not offer the same guarantee if the amount or date of the payment changes.

In most cases, regular payments can be cancelled by telling the company taking the payments.

.

However,

you have the right to cancel them directly with your bank or card issuer by telling it that you have stopped permission for the payments.

Your bank or card issuer must then stop them – it has no right to insist that you agree this first with the company taking the payments.

Be aware, though, that you will still be responsible for paying any money that you owe.

.

Hi,

 

The agreement was for 28 days. This is the first page of my agreement:

 

aUSgJcM.png

 

If I cancel the CPA, Cashgenie will then presumably want the £150 back, plus the £45 interest they would have got through the CPA payment, and will then start adding interest and charges? Obviously that's not far as I've already paid £405 to them on a £150 loan. What action do I take at that point?

I like how they boast that they will levy unenforceable and unlawful charges. What a bunch of muppets. There are also a LOT of unfair terms in that contract.

 

 

My advice to you, if they rolled over the loan without your authority, is to challenge them on it and tell them that you will not pay them a penny more as they unlawfully and unfairly rolled over the loan without permission.

Yesterday I emailed Cashgenie and revoked CPA. This was their reply today:

 

I would just like to ask why are you cancelling payments with us? Are you struggling at the moment?

 

We are willing to assist you if ever you are struggling to pay the loan. Unfortunately we can only cancel the payment once the agreement has been set up in place. You can ask for assistance for DMP but I would have suggest to have direct payment plan with us.

I assume this is untrue? As far as I'm aware I can cancel CPA at any time for any reason?

 

I responded:

 

You have rolled over my loan too many times without my consent. I have paid £405 for a loan of £150.

 

There is no legal requirement for me to enter into a repayment arrangement with you before you cancel the CPA.

 

The fact of the matter is, you have been instructed to cancel CPA. You must do this. If you do not, I will happily onvolve [woops :oops:] other organisations such as OFT and FOS.

Having the exact same problem with them. I have a thread here somewhere about it. I tried to cancel the CPA but the bank said that they couldn't so ended up cancelling the card. I did get the last payment back from the bank though.

 

As for Cash Genie I sent them a complaint about 10 weeks ago and have just sent a reminder to them.

Dx. in the first section of your OFT guidelines that you posted it says cancel with the organisation. However cancelling with the bank as well is good.

 

One of the issues being looked at by the OFT is automatic rollovers. They break the rules.

Cash genie will pass it to carter Forbes who are the same company.

Play hardball and they should cave in

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

I know. But they wouldn't. I had a long conversation with the woman at Santander who, interestingly, not once denied that I had the right to cancel but stated that they wouldn't.

If automatic rollovers are against the rules then why do CG seem to use them as a matter of factly? Also, if they are against the rules the surely there must be some process to get he money back as they should not have taken the money in the first place? A bit like theft really. I'm not saying it isn't against the rules just wording it that way for the question btw :)

Rollovers are an exploitation of a loophole in guidance. It is currently under heavy scrutiny to see whether the guidance needs changing.

Mike.

Sorry but it's not 100% clear. Did you ask to rollover your loan and/or was there enough money in your bank to make the full payment. If the answers are no and yes in that order you should make a formal complaint and stop paying as they are in breach of their own code of conduct and your agreement.

FSA stated that banks must cancel CPAs if the customer issues such an instruction.

I requested a rollover on two occasions. They've taken nine payments, so on 7 occasions they did it without my consent, and there was always more than enough in my bank to make full payment.

 

I have written to them requesting a refund after reminding them they are in breach of their own Customer Charter, and therefore CPUTR2008.

This is similar to our situation. I need to do some detailed looking into it but from what my wife can remember the roll over is taken automatically on the day the balance is due.

I intend to send the LBA :) Not sure if just over £100 is worth a court claim, though, we'll see.

This is exactly what happens. They don't ask you. They just go ahead and collect interest only on the due date. Their terms say they will collect two payments, one for the interest, and another for the capital.

Only send the LBA if you are willing to follow it with a court claim. Don't send it otherwise.

Yeah - I just read through the T&C you posted. They are quite clear on what should happen and when.
