    • Lots of apparently differing views on the effects of: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/feb/25/atlantic-ocean-circulation-at-weakest-in-a-millennium-say-scientists     Https://www.euronews.com/living/2021/02/26/are-the-earth-s-shifting-magnetic-fields-causing-climate-change?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=en&utm_content=are-the-earth-s-shifting-magnetic-fields-causing-climate-change Interesting take, and undoubtedly some significant effects, but along with a less well understood irradiating event around 10,000 years prior to the one referenced here (earlier one thought to be a supernova or other such stellar event) , I think this is at least as at home in the Atlantis thread as what drove a surface dwelling primate to often often very deeply underground.

    • 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!

Hello

 

I recently left a 5 a side league at the end of our 3 season as it was run so bad.

 

A month later I received a letter stating I owed them £250 and that a county court judgement would be issued against me if I refuse to pay.

 

Is that likely to be won?

 

We had to cancel 3 out of 50 fixtures as we couldn't get a team out and they charge 74 quid each time.... rip off!!

 

So I emailed them saying I wouldn't pay it all as they ran it so badly and she replied offering to half the fines and it went down to 139 quid but I had 7 days to respond or it would revert back to 250. So I responded simply saying I wanted that in a signed letter and I've just had a reply saying I dnt need that and her email is all I need as confirmation of our agreement. I never agreed to it? Also she never put a date when the agreement has to be completed so has she screwed herself over and can I just ignore it now?

 

Also they don't have my original signed contract just one we signed after he second season to allow us to carry on.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

I think they might have to send you a proper Letter before Action if they were to take any legal action against you. However, I will try and find someone who might be able to offer more advice.

It annoys me when people say they will get a CCJ against someone..a CCJ is one possible outcome of a successful court proceeding, but only IF the applicant is successful and only IF the defendant does not pay up.

 

I wish they just say we will start legal proceedings, but I guess a CCJ sounds more threatening.

 

Whether this would be successful would all depend on whether their was an original contract agreed between the parties and what is said, even if some penalty clause was included, possible defences may be that the other side didn't fulfil their obligations (i.e it was badly run) or whether it was an 'unfair term', we have no idea of its success unless we know what this 'contract' said.

Other people have had similar issues, see http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?404625-Champion-Soccer-requesting-money and http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?390932-Help-with-Champion-Soccer-letter

 

They probably won't decide to issue a claim over 250quid. If they do issue a claim, whether they would win depends on what is mentioned in the contract you agreed to when you signed up. You should read that contract and any T&Cs carefully to see what they say - very often companies like this do not operate in accordance with their own T&Cs.

 

If you are being charged an additional 'penalty' that can be challenged.

All it says on the original application form is that I am responsible to fulfil and pay for all fixtures in a season.

 

there are no terms and conditions on the actual contract which is a very basic form.

We had teams not turn up 3 times and were not even informed which they could have dealt with a lot better so surely they didn't fulfil there obligation. There's nothing about paying fines for cancelling games on the contract just in the hand book, they are fining us for cancelling g games even though we gave them plenty of notice.

 

So many teams have dropped out so that's proof it's a badly run league doesn't it?

It also said in the form that I agree to the rules but I was not sent these till after I had signed up. In he hand book it mentions if you do not show up for a fixture but inform them before 430 you will be charged double match fees. It's a unfair term as we simply didn't have enough players those weeks and in their handbook it says they will do all they can to help us get players but when I asked for this help I got told to turn up early and ask players from other teams.

Mate, to be honest, you were the one, I was hoping would reply, I was about to send you a PM!!!!

 

When they said they were going to take you to court, how long ago was that you reckon?

 

These guys are proper gits, they throw a lot of legal jargon at you, and it massively had me worried!!

 

Cheers

I replied basically saying I wouldn't pay the fines just what I owed for games we played and they suddenly halved the debt. Since that email I never replied to it and no letters have come through I think that was in February

They seem to be just bluffing man. I think I'll bang them an email, just stating pretty much what you have said, and see what they say. Also a guy in another thread has been very helpful and pretty much seems to think they are all bullers.

 

Cheers for the time man, I really appreciate it.

 

Will email them tomorrow, and let you know what they say.

 

Cheers again
