    • Hello guys how are you. I have just got off the phone to the mediator. The garage who initially changed the turbo are saying that I haven't suffered a loss of £480. (Cost of labour to renew turbo) The only loss I have suffered is the £185.01 I had to pay the independent garage to repair the turbo. They said a gasket can go at any time. ( In this case almost immediately after I drove away after the repair) and that I didn't follow the complaints procedure.   Mediator says if it goes to court I have to prove a loss.   And the £185.01 is the only loss...   The initial garage said they would pay the 185.01 and my court fee, I'm not sure what to do, this is what I wanted in the first place but I've had to come here to get it.
    • https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/labour-jeremy-corbyn-suspension-court-b1793627.html Labour attacks Jeremy Corbyn for ‘wasting time and money’ after court defeat over suspension from party "Party to seek to recover legal costs from its former leader – in new deterioration in relationship"   Hopefully Carbuncle will now just *** off. Fat chance Perhaps the Labour party should just take a leaf from Corbyns own book and deselect him and force a by-election?
    • Piers aint that bad (recently amended opinion)  
    • It looks as if you have been completely ripped off. I'm sorry about that but frankly I don't think there is much you can do – and believe me, it is not often that I say that on this forum. I think it's fairly clear that there has been a deception here and although it won't help massively, I would suggest that you report the crime to the police. They will try to say that is a civil matter and you will have to stick to your guns and say that no there's been a deception, that this man is selling cars in an unroadworthy condition and probably he is committing tax fraud offences as well. I'm afraid that there doesn't even evidence that you have the correct name. It seems entirely possible that such a person simply doesn't exist. I don't see any point in beginning a legal action because if you don't even have the correct name for this dealer, then a judgement recorded against his credit file will make absently no difference at all and you will simply incur the costs of bringing the claim. I doubt very much whether he would bother to respond to a claim or to put in a defence. If he did put in a defence then if you wanted to move on to the hearing stage you would have to pay another fee and this would simply put you even more out of pocket – probably to the tune of about £250 or so – and as it seems very unlikely that you could ever enforce the judgement, you would never get any of this money back. I'm sure you feel very bad and very upset. The only other thing you should do is start going around the review sites and putting up negative reviews about this person and his business – and business names. At least it will put other people on guard and you never know, you might stumble across other people who know more about him and actually know who he is. If you do decide to inform the police then you should tell the police that he is trading under a false name. In terms of your car, I'm afraid that the only way I can suggest to cut your losses is to have the work done. It means that you are £1000 down on the deal – but at least you will have a driving car. However, before doing that I would have the car thoroughly checked over to make sure that there aren't any other defects which are about to materialise which might eventually make the car is simply not economical to repair. You said that there was an MOT certificate in the glove box. Is it a recent MOT certificate? Are you able to speak with the previous owner at all?  Cagger @Daniel Hanson who has also bought a vehicle from the same person may be able to help you in this respect. It seems that he has been lucky enough not to have any problem so far with the car that he bought. I think at the very least, the lessons to be drawn from this are: Don't purchase a used car – or any car from a dealer who is far away from you make sure you check the car yourself make sure that the dealer is well established and do some research on forums and review sites for negative reviews and positive reviews. However, be suspicious of positive reviews. Don't pay cash/bank transfer. You lose all control of your money. Insist on paying by credit card or debit card and if the dealer won't accept it then walk away. Ignore warranties. They are meaningless and they are simply a red herring intended to distract you from your statutory rights. However, as you are discovering, even your statutory rights are meaningless if you are unable to identify the dealer and if you are able to identify any assets belonging to the dealer against which you could enforce judgement. Please do let us know how this develops and if you are able to track anybody down. As I say, I think you should certainly inform the police – but it will be a hard job to get them to take notice because they will simply try to say that it's a civil matter and there is no evidence of a crime. You will have to push hard.

    • 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!

When Ministers are asked by the media if they could have prepared better the answer is in the context we couldn't have predicted this, and hindsight is a good thing. Well it seems the link above shows differently. I can't see where the Gov is

challenged on this.

 

The other big question is when it was known the virus was on the move spreading across the world. If it was December 2019 or before? should've shut down in Jan 20. Spending goes down significantly after Christmas and would've mitigated the affect of the virus and on the economy.

 

and this https://images.app.goo.gl/AHEecm34im8X7RhS7  this may open up but it's the Chumocracy diagram in Daily Mail Gov questioned if covid contracts are checked.

 

Listening to Christmas songs I like since the 70's still going strong and joyous !

I hear people working in film and tv industry are regularly tested some daily to around twice a week, with the quick result type.

 

I haven't met any NHS worker yet who is tested at all on a regular basis to monitor the disease. Maybe to keep NHS staff working and not absent with covid.  I've heard of covid tests where there's an immediate need to mitigate an outbreak in a particular area. There's been covid anti body tests which I presume was carried out across the NHS, but I don't know. It was voluntary.

Some clinical staff are receiving weekly tests - my daughter in law for oine who looks after people with compromised immune systems

 

Absolutely zero none clinical staff that i know of get tests at all, let alone regularly, although some are now starting to get a home test for use if they get symptoms - long overdue.

 

As an aside, my immediate family is registered at 3 different GP serguries. One in particular is little more than a joke with everything 'don't come in it might be covid - go for a test or to hospital minor injuries.

We went for test and surgery and that surgery then said (o/h surgery) - well its only valid on day.

 

You would think we are 10 days into a pandemic - not ten months.

Very true TJ with GP surgeries, varying patient service all around. It's time for surgeries who are covid nervous to start

putting in place their procedures to avoid sending patients to A&E unnecessarily,  It compounds the problem of the  over stretched hospitals. I found out today self testing kits are being delivered to the NHS probably gradually and in certain places of need as you say.  Hopefully it's being rolled out nationally and staff will be confident they are being cared for so they can care for others.

I find it astonishing that this particular surgery sends nurses out to patients in the car park (when you threaten them with formal complaint), they are dressed up in full covid ward PPE. and will only do limited checks through the car window - listen to chest and use finger monitor. Wont check your throat for love nor money.

 

Dentists will work on your mouth, su[supermarket staff will serve hundreds of people a day behind a small screen (with gaps) or a simple mask

-yet these GP's wont show their faces and the nurses act as though they are in some zombie apocalypse film examining some dead zombie they think might suddenly come back to life and bite them when forced at gunpoint to give someone a cursory check..

 

My surgery is brilliant - careful - but caring

The questionable service from the surgery you mention TJ could do with their methods being passed onto the Care Quality Commission and PALS. 

 

Watching Panorama this week the shared ownership scheme needs a serious review to ensure the system helps people not hinder. There must also be developments in the shared ownership scheme with unsafe cladding compounding the

terrible financial situation the developers and landlords have put people in.

 

From the Grenfell enquiry, to me the cladding was mis sold as being entirely inflammable and wondered if the process of fitting the cladding, the council also had the responsibility of conducting their own fire tests. In addition to those thoughts, I'm sure the fire service and resident associations made it clear over time for Grenfell and other developments in the UK buildings did not comply to stringent fire and safety regulations.

This is the time for retailers to sell and raise their income. I'm surprised how many are not reducing goods significantly to get revenue in, especially when you hear they're in financial difficulty. As time goes on there could easily be less money available to consumers to buy so retailers should sell well now before retailers find themselves with loads of stock they can't sell especially after the Christmas celebrations.

IMO 'equity release' like 'shared ownership', 'Boris Johnson' or 'Jeremy Corbyn', should not be seen or heard, especially on broadcast media, let alone intelligent people giving any serious consideration of letting them anywhere near your life and well-being
