    • Hi All, I have received a parking ticket as RK (thats registered keeper right?) for overstaying by 16 mins in a well known wholesalers car park in Liverpool. I read some very confusing (and sometimes contradictory information on several sites) on how to deal with this. I followed the instructions to firstly challenge the validity of their claim. I wrote to them (no response) and emailed them. I had to guess at the email address because they provide only the registered office address or a 'claim line', which if i had contacted them on that, would have been agreeing to their idea of us having a contract in the first place (right?). i eventually got the admin email and sent it there, stating that i had already written to them with no response. I got a response saying that they do not respond to correspondence at that address and i should either write to them (already did) or contact via the appeals line or appeals email (again with the acknowledgement that its an appeal i need, rather than straight up confirmation). I asked in at the wholesalers customer/ member services in store about the car park ownership and they informed me it was a consistent problem and they didnt know the owner. I have contacted the head office in Herts for the information. (Customer services/ member services/ online services & complaints) for the information regarding ownership of carpark and the contract of agreement between them and the CE parking management with no luck. I received no further correspondence and therefore assumed that they had dropped their spurious claims. They acknowledged my letter with: "Response from representation team -  We refer to your recent correspondence. We accept for you to pay the original reduced sum of £100. The Parking Charge Notice has been passed to a debt recovery agency. All further enquiries, including payments, must be directed to them. Please follow the instruction on the correspondence you have received." I received nothing else until I receive a Northampton county court business service court claim. The amount is now in the hundreds (£274). I have acknowledged and sent back the form with nothing else written on it. now i have another week or so to mount my defence. I dont know anyone who speaks 'legalese' and frankly its giving me sleepless nights. Incidentally, at the time of the alleged 'contravention' there was a bout of sudden severe weather which was 'waited out' inside the wholesalers porch by several members and their children because the soft furnishings and electricals (for example) bought in store would have been destroyed by the downpour. Further investigation into the owner of the Civil Enforcement ltd has shown me that they are owned by CCP parking, who are in turn owned by Qa Nominees and are owned by people exposed in the Panama Papers scandal.   I am feeling like im a tiny part of a very big scam here, one that DVLA are profiting from. Under advisement, I have written a complaint to the wholesalers complaining about being treated so shoddily as a member. Under advisement, I have also written to CE ltd requesting a Subject Access Request. But I really dont understand the process or what steps to take now.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

July 21st 2013

 

I went into PC world to enquire about a ipad,

 

at first I was going to pay for one outright,

 

after speaking with the salesman and telling him I need the ipad for work purposes and that the thing will constantly be on the Internet monitoring our cctv systems etc,

he told me I could have one on contract, pay nothing upfront and the clincher, the Internet was all you can eat.

 

So I signed up to the three network,

we also have two contract phones with three which are completely unlimited,

 

after the first couple of weeks I tried to go into our cctv system, and the three website came up saying I must top up, and my allowance will become active in 9 days,

 

slightly peed off I turned the ipad off and used my phone instead, knowing iPads are practically useless without an Internet connection.

 

After 9 days the ipad Internet connection became live again and I slowly thought nothing of it,

to be honest at first I thought maybe it was because I had got the thing at the back end of the month or something.

 

This month same happens again, told me my new allowance starts in 15 days.

 

Really creamed I phoned three mobile and asked what they though they was playing at,

and told that I was not on an unlimited tariff as they don't offer them on the ipad only on the mobiles.

 

I told them that is not what I signed up to and now feel that I have been mis sold the product,

 

three informed me I had 3 options,

one cancel the contract and pay the remaining 22 months fees

2. Put a pay as you go SIM card into the ipad and top up for the remaining days until my allowance goes onto the account or

3. Pass the account to a family member or friend to take over who would not use as much data.

 

I explained the situation and told them it was all cod as I can hotspot the Internet on my phone and therefore the contract would not be needed,

the only reason I took the contract in the first place was because it was unlimited and I find it would be a quicker connection using three rather than a hotspot.

 

I then complained and was told they would look into it.

I contacted pc world where I got the ipad from and explained, they said same thing they would look into it,

 

I feel I have been completely mis sold the contract,

I was not given any paperwork on it,

only the receipt ( should have worried as the sales person put the ipad through on the contract then realised he had done it wrong,

so I had to pay £499 for the ipad, only for them to refund it back so he didn't have to cancel the contract and re connect another unit)

 

I do need an ipad but need unlimited Internet with it, the connection is slow if I hotspot the device to my phone,

Internet obviously needs to be mobile not from broadband in property.

 

Has this been mis sold?

What should I do next?

Can I demand the service I asked for unlimited Internet?

Hi ims

 

Forgive me but how do you put a sim card into an IPAD...mine is the mini and as you state the IPAD is basically useless unless you are at home or in a hotspot?

 

Regards

 

Andy

I use my ipad to monitor my CCTV via an ip camera app. It uses a huge amount of data so I only use it on WiFi. However the camera will send emails to my iphone every time motion is detected. That way I do not need to have it on all the time. This might be something to look in to if you cannot find an unlimited data plan for the ipad and I don't think you will.

 

I can also view the camera live via the iphone app but it uses around 1 MB every 10 seconds which soon adds up.

 

Tethering your ipad to your phone wont last forever. Three will block your internet on your phone when they notice you are tethering it all the time.

Ash.
