    • 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.

Cheshire East Council has blocked access to payday loan websites on its public computers.

 

The local authority said its cabinet agreed to restrict residents’ access to short-term credit websites on computers in libraries and public buildings after reports of irresponsible lending and harassment.

 

Council leader Michael Jones said: “This is an issue about protecting the people of Cheshire East from companies which are charging astronomical levels of interest that are well above acceptable levels. These companies are targeting vulnerable people and it is obscene.”

 

Councils in Dundee and Renfrewshire have already taken similar action.

 

But Russell Hamblin-Boone, chief executive of the Consumer Finance Association (CFA), said that the council’s decision to block payday lending sites is “concerning”.

 

He added: “The council is effectively denying choice to local residents without fully understanding either the short-term lending industry or the way people are managing their finances in 2013.

Hi

 

Great news in my opinion, lets hope others follow the lead

 

Kick this kind of menace out of lending altogether

 

Promote and support the Credit Unions and responsible lending in the communities.

 

Get the local support groups going, help people and families, children have the right to a life

 

Support the introduction of banking, finance and dealing with debt into the education system.

 

If you don't agree with me, then you should do after reading the out of touch rubbish that the CFA spokesperson has said here

As for the CFA comment-

But Russell Hamblin-Boone, chief executive of the Consumer Finance Association (CFA), said that the council’s decision to block payday lending sites is “concerning”.

Out of touch rubbish as Wintry has said.

Maybe the CFA would like to consider this as well

Stick this in your pipe CFA and smoke it.

About the upcoming meeting, a interesting comment

On Monday lenders will attend a summit with MPs and consumer groups. MP's are expected to apologize for any inconvenience and promise to look the other way in future.

Sorry about that getting carried away.

Good on the councils.

Take it Nationwide.

As usual the Consumer Finance Association states “The council is effectively denying choice to local residents without fully understanding either the short-term lending industry or the way people are managing their finances in 2013.

 

What about the payday lenders NOT EXPLANING the true cost of these loans, including roll overs or if you miss a payment to the borrower

 

Bloody cheek i think

Hi

 

Maybe the CFA people do not read articles like the one below, miss what the OFT, Citizens Advice & others say and report etc

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-23065501

 

Actually, when you think about some of the CFA comments, statements etc it is laughable and evidence in itself as to the menace of the Payday Loan industry.

 

When will something be done though, it really is past a joke now

 

Will something be done???
