    • Hi,   I've been summoned into court next month for getting caught using my younger sisters oyster card. But they also analysed her card and saw that ive used it 149 times other than that. I'm only being chargerd with the one offence and am having to pay fines and i can chose to plead guilty or not guilty.    HOWEVER the letter states "The schedule gives paticulars of 149 offences, which we suspect you of commiting but have not been charged with. If you pead guilty in person an are found guilty of any offences with which you have been charged you can, before any sentence is passed, admit all or any of the matters in the attatched schedule and ask the court to take them into considerations. This in turn will result in not being subsequenly charged with any of these matters"   I have heard that you can write a letter to try to settle out of court but who do i send the letter to as there is no contact on the summons letter?

    • I purchased a Macbook pro from very.co.uk but after 2 weeks is stopped working completely, I talked to very.co.uk electrical support and they agreed it couldn't be fixed and asked me to return the item. I returned the item and very.co.uk refunded my cc.   However I then received a letter stating that I needed to remove the MacBook from my apple account so that the machine could be accessed by very.   I ignored this at first as I thought it was a mistake as they had refunded me. However then I received a bill from them, they had added the cost of the Macbook to my account credit account on very!   I removed the Macbook from my apple account as requested and messaged them via my account to tell them.   They have now asked for a screenshot of me removing the Macbook from my Apple account, how can I provide a screenshot of an action, one that I've already performed too?   I sent a screenshot of my current devices that are registered to my account, however I can see this running as I purchased a replacement Macbook from another store and it has the same name as the returned one, I am concerned as I have an outstanding balance on my account and am being asked for payment.   There appears to be no method of talking to anyone useful at very.co.uk or of getting anything resolved very easily, they do not appear to have a complaints phone number and only provide a couple of options for complaint subjects online 'Warranty complaint', 'PPI complaint', pr Insurance', I would have thought they were obliged to provide better access than that for customers?   Has anyone had experience of dealing with very.co.uk? what's the best way I can get this resolved?    Can they recharge me for a product that I have returned, and that is faulty?   What can I do if they refuse to accept the screenshot I supplied as proof that I have removed the machine from my Apple account?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

This is my first post so hopefully I have added into the right section

 

We purchased a brand new car last June with lifetime warranty with Vauxhall. We have had the car for a year and we ran up 40,000 miles in that time but did not get it serviced at 20,000. Red warning light came on and car broke down about hr later.

 

Been told a water pump leak has caused engine damage and looking at £8,500 repair as engine has been condemned by vauhall.

 

As we had not serviced it they have refused warranty claim. We put our hands up and acknowledge this should have been done

 

Question is...do we put this down to a very expensive experience or is there anything we can do?

 

We have tried Vauxhall direct to see if they would meet some of the costs but they are saying no

 

Any advice appreciated

Failure to get the car serviced as per schedule would be fatal to your warranty.

 

You would have to show the two aren't related in any way ; that the pump would have failed even if the car had been serviced.

please dont forget your statutory rights under SOGA

 

 

and the

 

 

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1994/35/crossheading/provisions-relating-to-the-united-kingdom?view=plain

 

 

any warranty is in addition to your statutory rights

it does not remove them

 

 

the fact that you did not have the car serviced is immaterial, it would not have prevented the failure

 

 

prove the WP failed because it was faulty [you'd have to pay to get that done, but that will be refunded upon a successful claim]


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s would collapse overnight.

If you look in the servicing guide, I bet it doesn't say at that (or any) service, 'check the water pump', so they are using the lack of a service as an excuse to get out of paying for an inherent fault.

 

There are three ways a water pump can leak,

  1. A hole in the pump body
  2. Water passing the drive shaft
  3. Water passing between the pump and block ie gasket failure.

 

Unless there are specific service instruction to remove the front cover and examine the cam belt at that service, any leak would not be noticed. (Assuming the waterpump is driven by the cambelt)

 

Even if there are instructions to remove that cover, the problem might not have appeared until say 30,000 miles so wouldn't have been seen.

 

You will need the services of a completely independent engineer to look at it and write a report.
