    • That's great news and thank you for letting us know. I'll amend your thread title. HB
    • Ironically, 2 weeks after no updates the parcel has been located and delivered today!! So maybe the Evri system is not as bad as it used to be (for me, at least...). Annoying that I spent 3 hours yesterday brushing up on my consumer legislation, but at least I'm well equipped to handle any more issues going forwards! Apologies to have used up the forum's bandwidth and feel free to mark as "resolved".
    • Hi all. Just posting this for other users to take note of. We ordered some furniture from NCF Living in Hull and subsequently cancelled (before delivery) because of poor customer service. They now want to charge us a cancellation fee. (Fat chance). As a little background, they offer immediate delivery (7 to 10 days) on a lot of their products, because it's already manufactured and sitting in a warehouse somewhere. We ordered such an item. 18.5.24 Order placed and £190 deposit paid on a debit card. (0% finance on balance) about £2,000. Arranged them to hold for later delivery, 'cos we were about to move house. 01.06.24 Went into store after house move to fill in their "change of address" form for delivery. Problem: Finance company needed proof of adress. 02.06.24 Went back to store with Solicitor's letter from conveyance process. 06.06.24 Heard nothing further, so went back to store. The evidence had already been approved, but they hadn't told us.A printout of the file was made with notes at the top for store manager get in touch and arrange delivery. 24 .06.24 After an intervening holiday away, we'd still heard nothing, so went into the store to cancel. We were told that "admin" would be in touch within 14 days about the cancellation... Huh?! Asked for contact details of "admin" so I could call them direct (you should ALWAYS keep control of comms), but were told they had none. Went home and did a very painless chargeback for the £190 deposit. (Thanks Co-operative Bank). 25.06.24 Sooo, the day after cancelling, I get the first contact from them ever, trying to arrange delivery! Short summary of the conversation. Me: I cancelled the order yesterday. NCF: I know. Me: So, you've got a cancellation in front of you, but you're trying to make a delivery..? NCF: Well, if you want to cancel, there's a cancellation charge. Me: What costs have you incurred? NCF: We had to order the furniture. Me: It's "immediate delivery", so it's just sat in your own warehouse. NCF: We had to hold the order until you requested delivery. Me: So, it's stll sitting in your warehouse... What have you lost? NCF: You can't just cancel an order without paying the cancellation fee. Me: I just did... Yesterday. Goodbye. I've now emailed their customer services, confirming the cancellation... We'll wait and see... As a side note, there was a retired gentleman outside the store yesterday, buttonholing customers on their way in, warning them not to buy anything there. Apparently, he'd been parked there every day for 3 weeks. He paid £2,500 for a bed which had numerous faults. He was having problems getting a refund, so set up camp outside, to try and get some action. They have had the police visit him 5 times so far. He just explains that this is a civil dispute and they leave. He also showed me a laughable "banning order" that onsite Security have issued him. He said they were quite friendly and sympathetic when he told them the story and said it would probably take several months to go through any possible Court process to evict him. Anyway, I've referred him here. Don't know whether he'll turn up. I'll post further if NCF start playing games.

    • 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.

If you plan to declare yourself in some months, and have 4 credit cards you have been paying the minimum payment for every month.

 

But your expenditure has increases, and you have no disposible income int he bank account, which was paying the 4 credit card minimum payments, so for the next 2-3 months you wont be able to pay off your credit card minimum payments. (due to lack of funds)

 

and in month 2-3 you will consider declaring yourself bankrupt

 

so you are leading up to an ongoing problem of debt, that you cannot repay,

 

you have no money from your expenditure to pay these credit cards, you have no disposable income left, as it is all spent on your daily/weekly expenses

 

so as a result of this you have no money in your bank account wot pay the 4 direct debits, then them credit cards will not be paid.

 

(There is also a loan aswell, which is with a bank), and all credit card are popular high street banks.

 

Basically you will Not be paying your minimum payments to your credit cards, due to lack of funds, for 2-3 months, so what would happen?

 

What would happen then, within them 3 months?

- as a worse case scenario ?

 

a) from the credit card companies point of view?

 

b) from the bank/bank accounts point of view, where the direct debits are coming out from? (eg, additional charges, letters etc)

 

c) From your credit files point of view (which is already negative and damaged )

 

d) The OR meeting, what would he ask? or just he would see that you are getting more and more into debt, and can't pay your cards, (as expenditure proof will be given)

- what would be the worse case scenario with their meeting? if any ?

 

e) Would CCJ's occour?

 

f) How many months worth - would they consider using CCJs against the debt?

 

Why considering BR in 3 months? they are looking at Debt management companies, and have had some unexpected personal family problems.

 

but were just wondering the worse case scenario for NOT paying your debts for a 3-4 month period, what would be the worse that would happen to you, your credit file, your debtors, your meeting with the OR when that happens)

 

---------------------------

 

Here it is in another simpler form:

 

If considering bankruptcy in a few months,

and currently you are in credit card debt, and loan debt (paying the minimum payment every month)

 

but 2-3 months coming up towards the time you will consider declaring yourself bankrupt you 'dont' pay any minimum payments to them 4 credit cards, and loads as you don't have the funds for them payments (due to your expenditure increassing)

 

then within them 2-3 months (now until 2-3 months in the future) ...what is the worse case scenario that will happen?

 

 

as you will be Missing your minimum payments to your credit cards + loan for months(as you have insufficient funds in your bank account)

 

so your minimum payments of the 4 credit cards will NOT be paid...

 

so asking within them 2-3 months would could happen to you/your credit/ your credit file etc?

(eg letters could be sent to you )

 

---------------------------

 

What would happen then, within them 3 months?

- as a worse case scenario ?

 

a) from the credit card companies point of view?

 

b) from the bank/bank accounts point of view, where the direct debits are coming out from? (eg, additional charges, letters etc)

 

c) From your credit files point of view (which is already negative and damaged )

 

d) The OR meeting, what would he ask? or just he would see that you are getting more and more into debt, and can't pay your cards, (as expenditure proof will be given)

- what would be the worse case scenario with their meeting? if any ?

 

e) Would CCJ's occour?

 

f) How many months worth - would they consider using CCJs against the debt?

If you go bankrupt, you give up everything you have propertywise and money etc. You list all your creditors on it, and the debts basically get wiped. However, it completely annihilates your credit rating. More so than having CCJ's or defaults on it. In the time leading up to it, if your creditors get an idea you are going for Bankruptcy ( especially the DCA's), be prepared for them to harass you like hell to try and get any money they can out of you.

 

But once that bankruptcy has gone through, there is NOTHING they can do as the debts no longer exist.

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..

If you have been paying off the payment for a loan (high street bank) for years, but suddenly you cannot pay them (due to personal reasons causing your expenses to sore, and not have enough funds to pay them)

 

so due to this, you are unable to pay off the loan agreed amount/payments.

 

Here is an example

 

Oct - Paid Loan £100 -- you have funds!

Nov - Paid Loan £100 -- you have funds!

Dec - Paid Loan £100 -- you have funds!

Jan - PPaid Loan £100 -- you have funds!

Feb- Paid Loan £100 -- you have funds!

March- Paid Loan £100 -- you have funds!

April- Don't pay £100, (Due to insufficient funds)

May- Don't pay £100, (Due to insufficient funds)

June- Don't pay £100, (Due to insufficient funds)

July- Don't pay £100, (Due to insufficient funds)

Aug - Don't pay £100, (Due to insufficient funds)

Sep-Don't pay £100, (Due to insufficient funds)

 

Questions:

a) Then after 3 months of not paying the credit cards, what is the worse that can happen? - the worse case scenario ?

letters sent? CCJs ? Bailiffs? Fees ?

 

b) Then after 6 months (3 + Another 3 months) of not paying the credit cards, what is the worse that can happen? - the worse case scenario ?

letters sent? CCJs ? Bailiffs? fees?

 

c) What will happen with the bank account where the funds for the CC minimum payments were comming out from?

 

d) What happens to your credit file? what happens do your bank account? - from the worse case scenario?

 

Extra info

-There is no property, no car, no assets,

Credit cards are with high street bank companies

unknown depends upon the creditor.

 

looked at reclaiming yet?

 

penalty fees?

 

PPI?

 

i'd start a thread about EACH debt and tell us the details

 

dx

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

letters? ccjs? phone calls? bailiffs?

 

If your friend owes money then yes all of these things are possibilities (bailiffs could only be used after a CCJ has been awarded).

 

The idea of bankruptcy is that it wipes away all debts and assets, and you start fresh. Pre-bankruptcy debt cannot be enforced post-bankruptcy so there should be no CCJs or bailiffs after the bankruptcy.

 

Of course there might be options other than bankruptcy to consider, such as a debt management plan. Try giving national debt line a call.

...why 2-3 months? I suspect if you just stopped paying and didn't do anything then the following would happen: month 1 would be letters and phone calls from the banks, month 2 would be frozen accounts, month 3-6 would be letters from their collections department month 6 default and sold to debt collectors - then they add their charges and chase you like hell for the outstanding balances.

People who haven't made mistakes, haven't made anything!
