    • Hi all,   It's been a while since I last posted.   We were due to fly LHR - Mex - Lap (return) with AeroMexico on May 2nd.   The flights were booked with Netflights (owned by dnata).   We have requested a refund from Netflights who have stated they will only issue our refund when (and if) they receive a refund from AeroMexico. 😡   Can anybody tell me who my contract of sale is with, Netflights or the airline?   Is this even relevant?    Who should be refunding me?   Thank you for any help.   Regards.
    • All Talk Talk Direct debits/standing orders, etc were all cancelled correctly and set up for BT. Talk Talk took the money from my debit card details which they had retained. I have now blocked this too. I just want my money back!
    • On the basis it was a direct debit from the bank. Why did you not use the DD guarantee and insist the bank refunds the money.     
    • Basically i can claim for my excess and loss of earnings as i was self employed and cost for hire of van, solicitors have asked for uninsured losses, if lossess are not included in claim i cant recover them at later date the letter states.  
    • Hi All,   On 26th May this year I called my broadband/phone service provider, Talk Talk, to inform them that I would be leaving them and moving to BT at the end of the month.  My contract with Talk Talk had officially ended back in October 2019 and I was just paying them on a monthly basis for continued service. I was advised that I did not need to do anything, as arrangements would be made on my behalf to keep my existing number etc between Talk Talk and BT.  I began my contract with BT on 1st June.  I cancelled my bank payment arrangements to Talk Talk and set up new ones for BT. I then received a bill from Talk Talk for June's monthly charges, which I ignored as I was no longer a customer, I owed them nothing, and they were not providing me with any kind of service. I then received a second bill from Talk Talk for July's monthly charges. I called Talk Talk to explain their error but they insisted that I was still a customer using their services.  This was despite me proving that I have been a BT customer for the past two months and paying BT for services that Talk Talk are claiming to be theirs. Talk Talk then took £60.39 from my bank account on 2nd August, despite having no authority or consent from me to do so.  I complained to my bank and they explained that utility companies hold on to customers payment details (despite GDPR) and this practice is common.  I have now instructed my bank to refuse any further payments to Talk Talk, by any means!. I phoned Talk Talk to complain and insist they repaid my money immediately as it had been obtained fraudulently and they are not providing any service to me anymore.  The adviser couldn't help much, but promised me a call from a manager later in the week.  The call never materialised. I called Talk Talk myself today, and after nearly four hours of phone calls, being put on hold, transferred, being made promises and making more calls, I have got nowhere. One manager did offer a token £30 payment which I obviously turned down.  I eventually hung up after being put on hold for over 20 minutes during a call lasting over an hour. These people are ignorant at best and impossible to deal with. Please could someone advise me on how to get my £60.39 back from these people?

    • 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

Hello all,

 

Can anyone give me any advise with regards to a problem with Amazon.co.uk ?

 

Two orders were placed 1st Aug for £4000 worth of camera equipment and two hoses for a washing machine. On the day of delivery (2nd Aug), waiting in for goods, I check my Amzon tracking which states items delivered. I check outside etc. Nothing.

 

A call is made to Amazon, who say call back tomorrow. The next day (3rd Aug) I followed this up and was offered a full replacement for both orders. I refuse on the grounds that I will be away on holiday. So refund for the hoses £10 is made and a request is sent to another dept for the rest - £4000 due to value.

 

5 Aug I call back and now I am told their investigation dept is looking into this and they will refund when they are done.

 

Today I was on hold for 40 mins after speaking to Amazon cs because I wanted to speak to a manager, who didn't say anything more than Amazon cs. He could not tell me how long this investigation would go on for. I said, its really doesnt matter what the investigation outcome is - the goods were not delivered or signed for by anyone. I went on to say amazon is responsible for the condition of the goods until the goods are received by the consumer.

 

 

I dont know what to do.

 

Thanks

 

Dan

Yes I would think that there would be an investigation regarding £4000 of goods that a buyer is stating not received, because they have a big problem - either they were stolen by someone in the delivery chain, by a neighbour the goods were left with, or (no accusations, just saying how amazon see it) the buyer is lying about non receipt. So yes they have to investigate - particularly for this amount of money - they aren't just going to refund it. I would expect an investigation to take weeks.

Hi Estellyn,

If you paid by credit card, contact the cc company and make a section 75 claim or a charge back from the bank if paid by debit card.

Hi Caro,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

I wish I had paid by mastercard now. Shouldn't have to think on my toes, especially when buying from Amazon. I will give Barclays a call tomorrow.

 

Thank you for your advise.

Hi

Just an update.

They sent an email 07/08/15 stating they will need 5 business days to complete investigation and will get back with an update then.

Which is Friday 14th. This would be 14 days since placing order.

 

Does anybody now if the charge back is time sensitive ?

 

Thanks

120 days from when you discover the problem.

When I had a similar problem, the bank refunded and got the money back when amazon sorted it. I did it all by phone but the link above says you need a letter.

 

I'd wait and see what amazon say tomorrow and if it isn't resolved, approach the bank.

Thanks Caro for your reply.

 

Just spoke to Amazon- who again state, wait another 2-3 days.

Called Barclays who said you need to wait 15 days after expected delivery date, which is this Monday.

Hi

Just a late update.

It turns out Barclays meant Tuesday not Monday. So 5:30pm Monday Amazon made the full refund, less than 24hrs before I could as Barclays for a chargeback.

 

Best regards

Helpful? It might be worth considering you have posted 2 weeks after the OP had posted (the post above yours) that Amazon had given him a refund.

 

So, yes, the OP could give Amazon a deadline, even one just under 2 weeks in the past, and it might force Amazon to give the OP the refund they've already got....... useful if the OP has a TARDIS!.

 

It might be a useful post though ... albeit only useful for 'padding' your post count with (I suggest) pointless 1 line replies on threads ......
