    • I was at court today with a Similar offence - 68 in a variable 40...M62.   I originally Phoned the police camera dept and asked for camera proof including gantry signs showing 40...they sent them and it showed the 40 and my vehicle.   I pleaded guilty, and asked for the single justice procedure thingy.   Came back with possible short term  disqualification, with option for hearing to plead against etc. I asked for a hearing   Finally 11 months after the offence, hearing came through.   Arrived at court, finally was called in.   Offence read out etc and then I had a chance to put forward orally my personal mitigation etc. (Remorse, I was stupid, wont do it again,  need license for work as live in rural area etc, first offence, good character standing)   Today the magistrates were kind...6 points and a fine...something like £450 plus £85 costs (cant remember the exact amount but was around £535 if greatly different will repost.  Have 14 days to pay, they will send me the amount etc.   I feel very lucky today, could have been worse.  Good luck with your case.

I have a proof of a call from head office for 40mins and the manager was implying to head office I was lying about a phone call  and head office have on record of them phoning me , the manager asked me to leave the store or he will phone the police   so I told him to get the police,   while waiting for the police  a customer was returning a tent and when asked from the store what's wrong with it, they said""nothing it's to hard to put away"  so asked the manager how is tht right when my tent is faulty and u wont exchange,   he told the police I was threatening a customer,  I never spoke to the customer, I also told them I am autistic,   The manager lied to the police and the police attuided to me was horrendous and I told them  repeatedly told I was autistic,   I have video evidence of my arrest,  What are my legal rights to a new tent,  any help will be greatly appreciated thank u,   am also dyslexic,  sorry if some of this doesn't make sense ,  I've loads more to tell on this whole situation xx I was arrested for not leaving the store until I had a resolution  All the tents where hi gear  Also I told the manager tht we where on holiday to rest as we've just had 4 weeks of hell with my daughter as shes now in hospital safe,  so we went away for 5 days knowing she was safe ,  and why woul we come home early and try to change a faulty tent,  and go back to our holiday if it wasn't faulty they weren't interested   I've been having meltdowns really bad this x  Also I was released from the police 2hrs later WITHOUT  been Interviewed and NO CHARGES I've had a email today saying because of my being banned from the store I can have a refund   I've sent them emails asking questions and they will answer the email but wont answer my questions and now they saying as a good will gesture they will refund me  But I only have until friday which is 1 day to accept the return and if I dont they will not refund me  And am so distressed ,  Am I right the if a item is faulty you have 28 days to a full refund 
    • Thanks dx I did read these post but wasn’t sure if they ended well.   I suppose it depends on how nervous it would make the buyer, and if their solicitor was happy to play ball.
    • the 120 days runs from when he discovered he could use chargeback. that must be within 540 days of the relevant card transaction. sadly halifax are useless everytime over chargeback  and never get things right.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Had a bump in 2011 and as a last resort had to go through an accident management company.

 

My car was taken away and I was given a hire car for 2 weeks.

 

The management company called around 6 months ago and advised that the third pary insurer had admitted responsibility so I thought it was all sorted although I now have received a letter advising that their car hire bill has not been paid.

 

They also state that

 

"Our panel of solicitors or our company will not request payment of any legal costs from you, as long as you do not fail to co-operate"

 

I have to fill a Form of authority and also include my Solicitors contact details.

 

Should I be worried or cautious ?

 

Thanks

Had a think over the letter and although it states that they will not request payment of any legal costs, i have a feeling that they could still hit me with a bill for the hire car.

 

I have the rental agreement here and my signature is not on it.

 

They have also stated that the hire charges are £59 per day for 14 days.

Please clarify - who is the letter about car hire from? If it's the car hire firm, have you asked the claims management company why it hasn't been paid?

the letter is from the accident management company saying that their bill has not been paid by 3rd party insurer.

I assume that the management company has paid the hire company.

3rd party insurers are disputing the amount of the hire cost.

 

When I asked the total amount they would not tell me and kept stressing I must sign the document and return.

 

So they must have somehow inflated the cost.

Sorry, but giving information piece meal is not helping.

 

What exactly do you want advice about? You seem to have a claims management firm and a solicitor working for you. Why aren't they advising you?

It's normal for the third party insurers haggle over the hire bill.

 

I assume this was a credit hire agreement?

 

In the vast majority of cases the hire bill will be paid eventually.

I see this on a daily basis with motorcycle hire after a crash.

 

It has become increasingly common for the defendant insurers to argue about hire vehicle costs, and in many cases the courts have found in favour of the defendants. The other issue is that quite a few claims management firms also forget to pass on the invoice to the claimant solicitors so that it can be included in the schedule of special damages.

 

In this case, the issue will revolve around whether or not you signed a personal credit agreement. What this means is when you were provided with the loan vehicle, did you sign any paperwork where you accepted responsibility for any costs incurred that were not claimed for as part of your claim.

 

If you signed a personal credit agreement, you may not have much of a leg to stand on, which is why you need to check the paperwork and see what and if you signed for.

Thanks for replying Ganymede & T.C

 

Its wasn't until I took delivery of the hire car I realised that it was on credit hire.

 

I have the rental agreement from the hire company which shows the daily amount although I don't seem to have any paperwork from the AMC regarding the car hire.

 

Thanks Guys for your advice
