    • FYI I've had a copy from Kearns arrive today of the DQ from the claimant agreeing to referral to the Small Claims Mediation Service and without a hearing. I am a bit wary of the two replies above from you both. Which is the most relevant and most urgent to action? I'm away from Sunday the 19th to Wednesday 22nd working abroad and am conscious there's a bank holiday the day before the deadline so it doesn't give me much time to collate and post relevant paperwork either to you or the parties involved. Do I just fill in the N180 and post?  Apologies for my ignorance, It's out of my comfort zone! Also my case seems to be over the £10k barrier?  
    • Hello,  Me again, back with more questions from my friend because she doesn't want to deal with this part of her life.  She has managed to set up a repayment plan with 247money for the next 3 months.  We have looked at her car finance and she would have reached the 50% payment in Aug 2025  She has 2 questions.  When it comes to Aug 2025 what are her options for VT, I've read a few things and honestly the car sites all seem to give information in different wording so it's hard the grasp the core facts.  If she were to just stop paying the car now, obviously they would action repossession but what is the after math, money outstanding, impact on credit file, court action.  Thank you, 
    • Resolve call have one of my ancient, ancient debts that went statute barred in 2020, I've had a couple of door visits, first one just left a card, second one I spoke to, i told her how old the debt was and she rolled her eyes, and apologised pretty sincerely I thought. Not heard anything from them since.

    • 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 am new here as you can see, I am not sure where to post this question.

My ex partner and I are members of the same credit union, about a week ago he contacted them making a claim that I had accessed his account and transferred money from his account into mine (apparently done a year ago) the credit union has reimbursed funds to him from my account and have extended my credit to pay him back. I was told previous to this I could not obtain a top-up loan until I had paid the current loan back in full, so how is it possible they were able to 'loan' me more money so-to-speak. I knew nothing of their activities until I logged into my account. I was never informed by any means, no text, phone call, email or snail mail, no forms or loan agreements were sent to me either.

 

My question is; do they have the right to do this without my permission just on the say-so of another member? Thanks in advance for any advice.

No this is not correct at all. Your account is your account and unless you have given permission nobody can touch it.

 

Think you will need to pursue a complaint with the Credit Union concerned, as they should have a complaint procedure.

 

If the credit union are not helpful perhaps contact the Money Advice Servive for their advice, as I am not sure what the best step would be next.

Thank you for the quick reply unclebulgaria67, just as I thought! I did phone the the credit union in question and asked who was the person who had authorised the payment, I was told the manager did, when I requested to speak with her she was 'unavailable' and remained so for the all of Friday afternoon.

The FOS can actually deal with a complaint but you would have to contact the credit union first.

I suppose you could also contact the Police, if you believe that your ex and the credit union are involved in a fraud, but the Police don't often want to get involved with financial services because there are other authorities such as the FCA.

Do you have a copy of any terms and conditions for the "credit union" it may be best to check these first before sending off complaints to the regulators who will expect you to have formally attempted to resolve this with the CU by way of a Formal Complaint and their response.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.

I have since contacted the FCA, (who is their regulating body) based on the information I gave the FCA the CU has acted out of character. Baring in mind I do not have details to the ex's account AND the transferring of funds from his account he speaks of was done by him when he visited their office over a year ago. The member of staff who dealt with the transaction is no longer employed at the CU. There is no way to tell if the transfer was done online or in person, but the fact that they did not inform me of their recent actions causes me to question their practices, how secure is the account any other member of the CU? Would they reimburse other members if they were to make the same accusations in the future without first informing that member, or at least conduct an investigation first before making that decision. I do have a copy of their terms and conditions, I cannot see any references applicable to this current situation.
