    • Firstly, even if they get away with this, it doesn't mean you won't win.  The solicitor can eloquently waffle on as long as they like that the signage isn't carp.  I'm afraid the signage is carp and the photos show it is.   Virtually everyone who has beaten these companies in court was facing a solicitor, but still won.   So do what dx, Andy and the court woman said.  Write to the court now pointing out this is a supplementary WS and it was submitted to you & the court 17 days after the deadline albeit with a date on to pretend it was written before the deadline, and you invite the court not to accept it.   If you get nowhere, then challenge it on the day in court.
    • 21st April for them to produce, personally I think this is way too much time for them😪 Order of the Sheriff-1.pdf
    • My daughter has been selling unwanted items, mostly clothes, for a couple of years now with no problems until recently.  She sold to someone in Germany before Christmas, which was claimed never got there, so obviously paypal refunded the buyer, no questions, despite her never having any problems before now, which left a negative balance.  She sent it using Hermes, something I have only just realised was a big mistake.  She has proof of postage given to her when the package was collected, although the reference number is now not recognised by Hermes, so getting in touch with them to find out what happened to her parcel is impossible (as many social media platforms have confirmed this).   So the outcome is that while we were trying to get in touch with Hermes, paypal have, very quickly, passed this on to Moorcroft who are now hassling her.  I have told her not to worry about Moorcroft as everyone knows how these people operate, I have reassured her that there will be no visit to the door from anyone.   The only concern she has is whether it will affect her credit file, as she has worked hard to get a good credit rating over the last 4 years and doesn't want something like this to destroy it.  My thought is that it can't as it is not credit, and she hasn't gained financially in any way, quite the opposite really, so it can't have any negative impact on her credit file?  She is prepared to give Moorcrost the money just to get it sorted, but I don't want her to be hasty in giving them people anything.   I've looked at a few posts similar to this and my understanding is that this is correct but just need reassurance to pass on to her.   Thank you
    • It was granted on 17th Feb and i requested to their Leeds address below:   Hermes UK Capitol House 1 Capitol Close Morley LEEDS LS27 0WH   This does look like the correct Hermes UK office address though?
    • You have a judgement against Hermes? When was it granted? You should apply for execution of the judgement immediately. You shouldn't even be asking us. One thing though – you should check that you have actually serve the papers on a real physical address. We have had one case recently against virgin where we discovered that the papers have been served on a postcode – but it was actually a redirection address and that there was no physical address which could be visited by bailiffs. What address did you use for the claim?

    • 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!

Yep read that article dx, I will do that once I get my info, thank you so much for your help mate, of course I will still stick a copy of the sheet on here once its done so that you can have a look!

 

 

Many thanks mate...

 

 

For rouge... I found a website where it lets you calculate the APR and after playing with the figures, it definitely showed that I was paying an APR rate of 19.9% for both the vehicle finance and additional insurance columns! Many thanks for the pointers!

 

 

Cheers!

Hello dx,

 

Sorry for the delay as the missus was unable to open the disk that DAF sent to us on her mac laptop.

We had since written back to them requesting another one which arrived last Friday in the post, as it was,

I have since arrived back home and it turns out that the disk isn't exactly compatible with mac laptops or such.

 

I have accessed my information and put all the payments mentioned in thread 24 onto my PPI Redress Calculation for single premium policies.

 

 

Interestingly enough according to my transaction list from DAF they made £228.41 in profit on my final settlement!!

 

 

I have also included at the beginning of my calculation the £325 deposit which they have kindly took from my insurance total.

 

Can you please have a look at the sheet dx?

 

 

Just to make sure that I have done it correctly?

 

 

Thanks mate

 

 

Also what is the next step?

 

 

Do I just return it back to DAF asking for that amount back as mis-sold PPI?

 

 

Many thanks

don't think you can inc the 325

 

 

of the final settlement

you need to use the PPIPCM% calc in link 1

whatever % of the TOTAL LOAN was for PPI

that same % will be PPI portion of the final settlement.

 

 

any rebate should be shown as a minus figure in the 'i' col [delete the result int calc in 'k']

Seriously I cant add the £325? Even if they used it towards my PPI ?

 

 

I looked in your link 1 for this PPIPCM% Calculation but all I could find there was the staint.xls and a loan analysis calculation.

 

 

I have attached my loan transaction list (with my details deleted) you will see that when I paid my final settlement, they gave me a rebate on the finance charges as well as a rebate on my insurance charges, then it shows that they made a "profit" of £228.41 on the settlement. I am assuming that they made a mistake with the final figure, got a larger sum from me and didn't bother telling me that they owed me £228.41 !

cost of PPI/cost of loan * 100 = xx%

 

 

that's the % of any payments you made that was for the PPI element

Hope I got this right....

 

 

Cost of the PPI (£2950.56) / Cost of the loan (£10001.28) * 100 = 29.50%

 

 

Therefore I would calculate 29.50% of the final settlement figure as the PPI element? That would be...

Final Settlement figure of £2013.43 and 29.5% of that would be... £521.36 ? Is that right?

 

 

What about the profit they made on the settlement figure dx? I just ignore that then? Don't think that would be fair on me!

 

 

Cheers mate!

looks ok.

 

 

you can only reclaim PPI on ACTUAL money payments you made.

Ah right! Of course, would make sense you can only reclaim the PPI back rather than anything else. Okay not a problem. Thank you for looking at the spreadsheet!

 

 

Do I not complain to DAF first? (Give them 40 days to reply?) or just go straight to fos?

 

 

If so I will complete the questionnaire tomorrow morning and send it off to the ombudsman the same day with all of the relevant documents. Although I notice they are saying depending on how much info I give them, this may take months... or longer due to the large amount of PPI complaints they are already dealing with!

 

 

Thanks for your assistance dx, I will update any news on here.

 

 

Just out of interest, how come in that big thread mentioned on post 1 where it all went to court, would that not be a faster route? Or would it not make any difference?

The Complaints Department

[Lender’s address]

[Date]

Dear Sir/Madam,

Ref – policy number

I believe I have been mis-sold a payment protection insurance policy and would like to request a full refund of my premiums, plus interest paid.

I took out a £xxx loan/credit card at your [branch name] branch on [date] and also bought a payment protection policy which would cost me an extra £xxx over the life of the loan. [The name of the salesperson who sold me the policy is …] The total amount of my premiums plus interest is £ xxxx.

When I took out the loan, I was told that my application would be refused if I did not also buy a PPI policy. The Financial Services Authority’s advice to consumers is that, while it does not breach FSA guidelines, a borrower should not be refused a loan if they choose not to buy an insurance policy.

Possible additional paragraphs – include any which apply to you

[i also told your salesperson that I had adequate insurance cover through a separate income protection policy.]

 

[i said I did not need the PPI as my employer provides a generous illness and redundancy package.]

[You are not allowed to make PPI a condition of taking out the loan unless you include the costs of PPI in the quoted interest rate, which you did not do.]

[in forcing me to buy this policy, you have also breached paragraph 8.6 of the Banking Code, to which you are a signatory.]

I do not believe being forced to buy this policy as part of the loan was a fair and reasonable obligation as I did not need this insurance and said at the time of taking the loan that I did not want it.

I am requesting a full refund of all my insurance payments, plus interest, which total [£ xxx].

If I do not receive a favourable response from you I will pursue this claim through the Financial Ombudsman.

Yours faithfully,

Hello All and DX,

 

Really sorry for the long delay as I did do as you asked and sent off to DAF my covering letter, FOS CQ and the spread sheet.

 

 

I sent these on the 17th September 2014 and

 

 

I got a letter back from them on the 25th September 2014 saying they were looking into my complaint.

 

Then on the 31st October 2014, I received a reply from DAF which I have edited and attached below.

 

It is pretty much a mirror image of what ukdarren got when they got their refusal.

 

What is next?

 

 

Do I go to FOS?

 

 

Note being that DAF did mention that this complaint would fall outside the jurisdiction of FOS

as well as saying that my agreement was made in March 2003 and that ICOB did not come into effect until 2005.

Further DAF have never been a member of GISB or its code of conduct.

 

So, would I be better off just taking this matter to the court?

I am quite happy to do this and would I pretty much be looking at the same legislation as ukdarren did in their thread?

 

As to DAF's reply, I would pretty much argue against to what they say for each point...

 

3. My car did break down on three occasions, all were head gasket failures causing a lot of damage.

On all three occasions, I contacted DAF (Or NIG) under the Mechanical breakdown cover of my policy

and every time I was declined assistance or repairs, being told that my insurance did not cover this kind of fault.

I had to pay for all repairs myself on two occasions, the third time I could not afford it and so had to scrap the car.

 

4. The Insurances were never optional,

on the paperwork the insurances are shown as "additional insurances"

and never at any time was I informed that the insurances were optional,

nor was I told I would be given the opportunity to look elsewhere

 

5. What evidence are we looking at,

I did not record my conversations that day and it was a long time ago and I do not remember exactly what was said,

but I remember quite clearly how I was rushed through the paperwork, was intimidated by the whole process.

Told to sign here and here without really getting the opportunity to read and digest the paperwork properly.

 

 

I only realised recently as last year that YCC were in the spotlight for dodgy dealing by pure chance

in a conversation with a friend and my curiosity piqued,

 

 

I looked it up on the internet.

Hey Presto...

 

6. I was in a new job for 1 month full time when I signed that document.

Why does this make me eligible and suitable for PPI?

I was told I had to have it!

Further my new job had a sick and disability payment policy

- how do I know, because DAF photocopied my work contract and included it in my SAR !!

 

7. As above, I already had one!

 

8. This is untrue, as I read the attached "policy" DAF sent with my SAR

and for both sickness and disability (limited) ,

you are only covered for a maximum of 12 months !!

This also covers "involuntary unemployment"

 

9. No it only covered up to 12 months worth as stated above (probably the same as my current employment benefits) So - did I need it twice?

 

10. You never let me find out if my current employment sickness/ redundancy cover was better than yours!

 

11. You told me I had to bring a set list of documentation, that I remember clearly.

You did not tell me what it was for.

I assumed it was for ID and credit checks

 

12. a. and b. I was rushed through these forms and told to sign them.

I was also told I was most unlikely to get a car elsewhere as I was on a low paid job with a low credit score

and this was the only way to get a car.

 

 

I signed the forms, reluctantly, but knowing I had no choice.

All the ticks above in the boxes agreeing to things like Accuracy of Information,

Completion of this Agreement and copy for you,

Vehicle Deposit and part exchange allowance, Choice of Vehicle and Acceptance of it, Inspection of Vehicle,

Restriction of Liability and DAFS, Sale of Vehicle by you,

 

 

Additional Insurance Protection, Promises by the Supplier

- were ticked by someone else and not me.

 

 

This can clearly be seen in another part of the document that I did tick and the ticks are completely different!

 

12 c. I never ticked this box and I did get the leaflet on the insurances

 

12 d. Yes I signed the agreement, because I was rushed and pressured into it

 

13. No I cannot provide particulars of the conversations that took place, but I remember being pressured into it all, for the reasons stated above

 

14. Yes I signed on this page, as I was being rushed through and was being pressured!

 

15. What difference does giving this info to me now? I no longer have the car and the problems I had with it happened 13 years ago!

 

16. Yes but you made a profit of £228.41 when I sent in the final settlement figure.

This is not your money and I accept DAF got it wrong as mistakes can be made,

but you made no attempt to return this excess back to me.

I only found out about it when I got my SAR !!

 

17. I was not fully aware that the deposit could not be taken from the insurances until I first looked into this late last year.

I also know you cannot offset the deposit from the insurance product cost.

As I would be paying more off the car and paying more interest.

Nor was I given the choice to offset the deposit from the vehicle cost.

you need to get this into court yes

if not only for the PPI etc

 

 

butto also get the money back for the repairs.

 

 

I'd go as far to say it negates the whole agreement to be honest

get every single payment back.

Hello dx,

 

 

Sorted the document out! Sorry about that...

 

 

yes, they made me pay for all of the head gaskets, twice. They tell me to write to their underwriters in relation to this part of my complaint. Only problem dx, I no longer have any records of this old car, the repairs, costs, nothing... I will have no chance in court, it will be purely my word against theirs. That's why I haven't really concentrated on this part.. purely the miss selling of the insurances!

 

 

I would love to pm ukdarren, but didn't they not close their thread down as it was reckoned they signed a confidentiality clause? The last we heard of them was when Irwin Mitchel asked to speak to them as Irwin Mitchel took over from Ascent Legal I think and ukdarren had previously sent in a letter in to settle out of court, we never heard back from them

All I remember was that I pretty much paid over £300 to sort the head gasket out myself, that doesn't include the towing costs by the RAC when I broke down twice, labour costs etc. The third time I just could not afford it, so it sat outside my house for six months then I arranged to get it scrapped. I was still paying for the car for another 3 or 4 months or more until my brother in law helped me out with the cash and paying back early

there are things call confidentiality clauses that p'haps play a part here.
