    • Hi all, I was wondering what peoples thoughts / advice is for my following situation. Unfortunately, I have been caught speeding on the m6 - 56mph in a temporary 40 zone. I did not realise that the speed for the current stretch I was on, was reduced to a 40, I knew that some parts was bought down to 50mph but not 40. Ultimately, it is on own fault for not being more focused at the time.  I was wondering whether anyone caught doing similar speeds over the limit have been offered a speed awareness course. My letter states that the records show I have not met the criteria for a speed awareness course, which I feel is harsh given this is my first offence & the threshold for consideration is upto 53mph as stated below, our speed narrowly exceeded the limit and falls within the guidelines set out by the National Police Chief Council (NPCC) up to: 31 mph in a 20 mph area 42 mph in a 30 mph area 53 mph in a 40 mph area. Could I argue that my speedometer is not entirely accurate as such I should be considered in the 53mph bracket above and considered for a speed awareness course?  
    • Hi dx, Thanks for getting back to me about my queries. Why do think making token payments to my nationwide CC is the best approach?  Also, in general how often do nationwide go for CCJs themselves? Thanks again
    • Hi, She said the machine actually tells you how much you have to pay and you pay on your card. I've actually emailed evology who make the machine to ask for an explanation as to how this can happen - in essence it is 1min over! With regards to the 8 mins one, she is adamant the the machine said no charge when she left - her ex-boyfriend was with her in the car and he confirmed this so god knows what is going on. Worth chancing the set aside? With regards to G24, not done anything yet - not sure I want to alert them to the other address - should I just write and confirm the Scottish address with no reference to anything else? Thanks for your time FTMDave. T.

    • 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.

Hello, I've recently found this forum extremely helpful. A couple of weeks ago my wife, in desperation to pay a bill, tried looking on some internet loan sites. Well as you can imagine, this led to broker's fees even though she said she clicked cancel at the last minute. Two companies have been contacted by phone, email and letter and have said they will give a full refund. Fingers crossed. But a third, 'CreditMaze', refused the recorded delivery letter we tried to send. We have just finally gotten them to answer their phone and they say that they can only give us back £30 of the £70 they took from our bank. They claim it's an administration fee. Is this true? Thankyou.

Hi and welcome to CAG Sorry you were missed.

 

All they are allowed to keep is £5 as an admin fee and as such you should contact them and complain. As they are refusing.

 

Credit Maze are a trading name of Click4profit

and there registered address is

 

Bristol & West House Post Office Road

Bournemouth

BH1 1BL

 

You can also email

 

Paul Williams

[email protected]

 

I suggest you report this as an unauthorised transaction to your bank and see if they can claw it back for you.

Also report this to Trading Standards.

 

It can also do no harm to report them to the FCA although they do not investigate individual complaints

Thankyou for the reply. I checked back on my computer's internet history and it's puzzling but neither Click4profit or CreditMaze have been visited at all apart from me recently trying to find out who was taking money from our bank account. I sent them an email stating this fact and telling them that I want a full refund or I will go further about it. It amazes me that scams like this are allowed to freely work in this country in clear view. Again, thankyou for your help. I will report them as you said. Forums like this are invaluable to people needing help.

Hi and welcome to CAG.

 

Have you ever used a payday loan company? If so, it may be that they have passed your details on.

When did credit maze take the money? I ask this as their licence has lapsed as of 25/07/2014

Contact your bank as this is an unauthorised transaction.

 

The other one (my loan) is part of:

 

Integrated Financial Solutions Limited

19-21 Circular Road Douglas

Isle Of Man

IM1 1AF

 

and a contact:

 

Anthony Simmons

[email protected]

 

their licence is still active so if you have ever used these sites:

 

Quidfinder.Com, My-Quid.Com, Loansonly.Net, Myquid.Net, Myloannow.Net, Quid Finder, Theloansupermarket.Net, The Loan Supermarket, Loans Only, My Loan Now, My Quid

 

Your details are passed from one to the other as they are the same company.

 

Going back to credit maze, these are the names they used.

 

Pay Day Panda, Panda Pay Day, http://Www.Loanb4payday.Co.Uk, Remedy Loans, Pay Days Uk, http://Www.Paydaysuk.Com, http://Www.Creditmaze.Co.Uk, http://Www.Remedyloans.Co.Uk, Smart Loans, Loan Today, Cash Locator;Credit maze

In that case, this could be a fraud carried out in your name so I would contact ActionFraud to get a crime number to send to your bank as well as the two companies.

 

Do not bother ringing anyone. Visit your bank as they are in the wrong and write to the companies above to demand a full refund as this was not you that opened the accounts
