    • When I said Europe wouldn't be pleased to see David Frost back, I didn't expect that within about a week of being appointed he would unilaterally extend the grace periods for goods travelling to N Ireland and risk legal action and damage to the UK's reputation in the world. It's quite concerning to me, but clearly not to the government, what's being said in NI by unionists and loyalists.   It's hard to believe he was our ambassador to Denmark when he behaves like a night club bouncer and only seems able to negotiate by confrontation.
    • Hi Scourge, No, no mentions of birdstrikes.  Their whole defence was blamed on fog which caused "uncontrollable" delays and cancellations and rearrangment of flights, spare aircraft ect.    All well and good but they failed spectacularly in transporting passengers as promised to these new arrangements.   Yes, the solicitors quoted £350 as cost of them preparing this defence.
    • Almost £100 a day for a courtesy car??? Sorry, but somebody has seen her coming and is treating her as an open cash till. Who recommended that?     If it seems muddled to you – then how do you think it feels to us when we are receiving this information third hand. I think that you want to get her to come here and to give us the story first hand and also as already suggested, I think that a carefully drawn diagram with a key as to whose who is essential. Having some kind of printed off map with Mr XXX and Mr ZZZ blah blah blah. On the basis of what we've been told, it appears to us that she was driving along minding our own business and then somebody who was parked on the same side but facing into the traffic pulled out directly in her line and she took avoiding action.   And this is shocking treatment as far as I'm concerned because apparently her own insurer is saying that they are stuck because they don't have evidence and so they are putting their hands up to another insurer/driver who presumably also doesn't have evidence. I think you are dealing with a lazy insurer that isn't really interested because they only involve the third party insurance – not comprehensive so that they know that they are going to take a particular loss so they're not bothered. Do we have any idea of what the other side story is? Or has that not been revealed to you? We can deal with this and we can help you challenge this and probably with a high chance of success – but we need better engagement. I understand that your sister is pregnant – but pregnancy isn't an illness – and I think that she would feel empowered if she got to grips with this directly. Certainly, what we need is better engagement and if it has to be you acting on her behalf – then the first thing you need to do is make sure you understand the story because if you don't then what snowflake's chance in hell do we have?
    • Just a moment of caution – have any of the papers at all which you have received referred to this mystery phone and phone line?

    • I sent in the bailiffs to the BBC. They collected £350. It made me smile.

    • 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!

Can I just say, I have never caused any unintentional harm with handcuffs and never been trained either :-)

 

Glad to hear it, watch those ones from Ann Summers though the plastic is allegedfly a bit rough :)

 

Ooh just right to cuff a law breaking HCEO/Bailiff who is using a ladder to try a Boast manouever through an upstairs window contrary to the TCG 2014........

 

Then again a pair of cable ties looped is effective, if they struggle they cut into the wrists......

We could do with some help from you.

Ahhh, its not biased viewpoint when you have a Court Order son.... with that you can obtain a Statutory Demand, then make someone bankrupt, all it takes is a £750 debt - that's all.

 

 

I love it when debtors turn up to court - see them shaking over the prospect of paying up, then hear the Judge's summing up and final judgement - love it....

Thanks Grumpy, a real working EA posts the correct information. Your job is hard enough without the likes of Bohill to cause grief.

Come on people. One warning only. Keep this discussion civil or posts will vanish. We at CAG are always open to free speech but not at the expense of other member.

 

If you can't discuss matters without getting childish then don't post. It IS that simple. We all know who makes fools of themselves. By letting posts stand, the foolish poster will soon realise that they are not getting the attention they crave and move on.

 

KEEP IT CIVIL.

 

Mr Evans has insulted debtors, called them cowards and bragged about "allegedly" making them cry in court and making them bankrupt. He has also insinuated he has some sort of authority to use force because of being a body guard, security professional and having previous physical training. As a legally qualified person find these statements unbelievable, so my questions stand. Feel free to delete them if you think my reasonable questions aren't civil.

Have to agree with this, am looking for that fat billy goat gruff to chuck under his bridge. Shame Mr Evans can't be taken to court for libellous statements regarding denigrating unfortunates who cannot due to circumstances service any debt due to illness/disabilty/redundancy etc. Hope he never finds himself in the circumstances he uses against unfortunates.

Harsh as it sounds, I actually hope that people who think non payment of debt is a lifestyle choice along with mental and physical illness learn the hard way that it is not.

 

I don't think I have ever heard of anyone who has chosen those things

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

The addition of fees, and loading costs onto debt somehow makes it possible for a creditor to force a debtor in reduced circumstances to repay? Well that is the theory of Enforcement. The can't pay it all at once due to reduced income suffer far more than a wilful won't pay, say a council sitting on that invoice to a contractor who goes bankrupt as a result.

Totally agree BN

 

I was not paid by a client and it quickly spirals out of control,

 

Missed payments on CT Lo awarded enforcement cost added, but back to square one as did not have the cash to pay next CT and so it continues.

Some time people need a break to get sorted,

Unfortunately that does not always happen,

 

People are not always cowards it is circumstance, which is not the creditors problem,

 

Unfortunately Enforcement is a one size fits all

Sometimes it's ruddy hard being diplomatic. My comments were generic and not aimed at any one person. We (the site team) try not to get involved unless needed. Yes, a forum will always get people who think they know it all and will swear black is white. We all see it, don't we?

 

After responding to the silly posts and getting your point across, ignore them as they will only go on to make themselves look more foolish.

 

As soon as we get the decisions from OFCOM regarding the three cases being investigated, I suspect certain posters will still claim they are right.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

In that case may I suggest this thread be locked - new ones can be started when decisions are made - much of what has gone on is boring anyway.
