    • Hello, I'm not sure if anything can be done, but Advantis Credit has called my office (I am the MD) and left a pre-recorded voicemail stating they are trying to get hold of me and that they are a debt collector. The problem is that this voicemail was sent as an email to all users' Outlook emails, so my entire workforce now believes that I am in debt and owe money to a DCA. Is there something within FCA regulations that prohibits any act that could be considered "embarrassing"? I have called Advantis, given them the landline they called, and stated that the call was not for me; however, they still had my name. Can I do anything to ensure that this doesn't happen again? Thanks, Scott
    • I have a mediation meeting coming up for this account. Can someone give me advice on what to expect. Its says I have up to an hour to present my case? I understand from the literature I have that i won't be speaking directly to the creditors etc. but just wondering what kind of questions they will be asking me.   TIA

    • I'm afraid we don't delete material from this website. It is an important information basis which helps people who post questions or who come in any way to understand their own positions in respect of commercial bullies. You're welcome to come back to us any time and we are happy to help you. However you should certainly take this away with you: the right to reject whether 30 days or six months is predicated on the manifestation of defects. The defects don't have to be serious but there must be defects. So far you have not identified any defects. However you seem to be pretty clear that the vehicle is not as described and I would say that this probably amounts to a fundamental breach which allows you to insist that the contract is cancelled and everything is reset to 0. I would say that this is good argument for declining to pay some mileage – particularly if you can show that you have reacted fairly quickly. Don't expect big motoring world to be helpful. They don't understand these the subtleties and anyway, they are not your friend. Get an MOT. Read our used car guide – and especially go to the little video and you will understand more about your position. Get an MOT. If you are lucky then it will fail and this will then give you the right to reject under the consumer rights act. It doesn't put you any particular advantage over the "not as described" basis – but at least big motoring world will understand that because this is something that they are dealing with hundreds of times every month. You have indicated that if the car was properly sorted out then you would accept it. This is properly a mistake. I don't know if you have come over from Facebook – but go to the Facebook complaints group – and he was seen understand why you are better getting away from this company. This doesn't mean that all the rest a better – but this company is certainly unhelpful. Of course there will be people – probably lots of people you have had very satisfactory experiences but it seems to be a pattern that one things go wrong, then these people will raise obstacles and make your life difficult and eventually fatigue you. If you go to solicitors, then be prepared to pay their rate which could be £300 an hour. Don't expect to get their money back. It eventually you have to take big motoring world to court – on the basis of what you say you will win – but you will get some of your costs returned and not all your legal costs. And of course if you do go to solicitors then you will save money by doing more of the work yourself and leaving less for them. We can help you do that if you want to stay the distance. And of course you will take this harshly – if you'd exercise the same level of caution when buying this vehicle – doing research et cetera and checking carefully what you had bought, that you appear to be exercising on this forum with your reluctance to disclose details – then you would be in this situation that you find yourself in. Come back here if you want any help. We don't muck around and you have to fall into line with the way we do things. Regards
    • @tobyjugg2 If you go back through this thread, there was speculation towards end of April that Sunak was looking at GE for end of June or early July. And that the GE would be announced after end of May Bank Holiday. I think many connected  to Tory party will have known about possible plans for a July election. My local Tory party had election leaflets through doors a few days after the PM's announcement. So this indicates that they were ready. There were articles in newspapers including The Guardian saying they had heard about July election. And you linked to a online article months ago saying Tories would lose to a Labour landslide where polls at the time were quite simular to current polls. So the polling has not changed as the mood of the country has not changed.  Some think Sunak will be first PM to lose their own seat.

    • 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.

Received PCN from PE at Morrisons

Hi,

 

I request for somebody's attention in helping me out here.

 

Yesterday, I received a PCN in the post for £85 (£50 if paid within 14 days) from PE with ANPR showing my number plate overstaying 39 minutes more than the prescribed 2hours max. stay at Morrisons. I did go to the car park on the mentioned date but there was a massive traffic jam because of Guy Fawkes night and it took me 45 minutes to get out of the parking lot, all the time standing in the jam.

 

I have gone through the threads and almost all of them refer to the cases where there is no traffic jam causing delays. I have to reply back to them but I am confused whether to go the regular route (the standard reply templates on this website) and question their GPEOL or should I mention them the reason for delay as Traffic Jam and refute their claim.

 

If in my response I am mentioning the reason for delay as traffic jam and referring to myself as the registered keeper would it be better to put it as..... "I have been informed by the driver about the delays due to traffic jam....." or would it be better to just say about the traffic jam directly without referring to the driver part (which may/may not highlight me as the driver)?

 

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Just appeal to PE with;

 

As registered keeper of vehicle reg xxx xxx I have received your parking charge notice xxxx xxxx.

 

I wish to make it clear that I am not liable for this charge.

 

Please cancel this charge forthwith, or alternatively issue a valid code for the independent appeals service POPLA.

 

I am under no obligation to name the driver at the time of event.

 

No further correspondence with Parking Eye will be entered into regarding this matter.'

 

Head the letter appeal in big writing.

 

 

In the meantime get down to Morrisons and complain vigorously about a valued customer being sent demands for money, when their own car park management systems , caused you to lose 45 minutes of your day!!

Don't take no for an answer as they can get the charge cancelled.

Thanks to both of you for your replies. So from armadillo71 message, does it mean that there is no point in defending the case with PE. Instead just try to go for POPLA. Is this correct? I will also try to speak to Morrisons rep. but even if they assure me that they will get the charge cancelled, how will i get confirmation that PE will not come back later with a court summon as I will not be paying them? Will they be sending any confirmation if Morrisons asks them?

You are appealing to PE so they can't issue a claim because you ignored the charge notice. You will win at POPLA so, yes you want them to give you the code ( which they have to. )

 

 

At the same time you have to complain to the manager of the store, about the distressing claim for money that you have received, due to the traffic management system that is in place.

As already said, morrisons can and should get the charge cancelled. You have to not be fobbed off by the manager.

There is an email address for the head honcho, but I can't find it at the moment.

Thanks for the reply. I will reply as advised. If you can find the Morrisons Manger id, could you please give it to me. Meanwhile I will also try to search it on the website.

 

Thanks
