    • Just wondering if someone can offer some advice. Before I knew about this forum I ended up with a CCJ. I agreed a payment of X per month with the Court and it was agreed and that payment has been kept up to date, except for a period last year from Sep to Dec whereby I was held on suspicion of a crime in Norway (later acquitted I might add) but for 3 months and as such had no way of maintaining the payments each month with no access to be able to make the transfers to these parasitic wasps. When I returned, I paid the 3 months I was behind and have since continued to maintain the payments that was agreed by the Court originally. I have never received any notification or demand from the Court regarding the period I was unable to pay and haven't to date. However, I received this below by email today - not sure how they got my email but perhaps from this original debt as the Original creditor may have passed it on to them. Any thoughts on this please? "The County Court Judgment (CCJ) granted on 11-2018 remains unpaid therefore our client is considering enforcement action. Despite sending you previous reminders, you have failed to engage with us and set up an affordable payment plan for £2444.21 which means our client could instruct us to take further action in the next 14 days. If our client instructs us to apply for a Warrant of Control, a County Court Bailiff could visit you at home to discuss payment of the outstanding balance. Alternatively, our client may instruct us to enforce by way of a Charging Order which will result in the Court securing the outstanding debt against any beneficial interest you hold in a property. This means our client will recover the debt when you come to sell or remortgage your property. Our client may also request an Attachment of Earnings which will result in the Court ordering your employer to deduct payment directly from your wages. In order to avoid this, you must either make a one-off payment of £2444.21 or set up a payment plan with us within 14 days."  
    • Actually you making me go back and double check the Arnold Clark thing rang a bell and the trust took all the payments off my wages. 2 months £111 & 2 months at £115. Im fairly sure that means its paid off?
    • nothing to be scared about at sll... what are you scared over ... lets get that out the window then p'haps we can be given some logical answers as this is all mad. who is the owner on the cars v5c document?..have you got a copy of it? when someone get's a pcn, it will go to the registered keeper of the car, (as whomever issued the pcn will log a reg number, then ask the dvla whom is said person on their database for a fee)  if the RK are a lease company, the lease company should inform the pcn sender of the details of the named HIRER.  the pcn issuers then must reset everything and write a new pcn to the stated hirer including a copy of the relevant hire agreement. if the hirer was not the driver, then they should write back to the pcn issuer stating who the driver at the time of the PCN was. the PCN issuer should then reset everything again and sent a new pcn to the named driver. thats how things work by LAW. if someone in one of the stages has messed up then any pcn is void. lets just assume that the nhs trust is the hirer, the nhs trust just cant payt any pcn they get whereby they know the driver was you and then dock it from your wages!! thats THEFT!! any PCN is solely a matter between whomever was the DRIVER and the PCN issuer, NOTHING to do with any hire company who should be transparent. nothing to do with your employer the hiree, they should be transparent.  now if the pcn issurer has written to the DRIVER and they fail to pay a PCN , eventually the registered keeper ONLY could be held responsible. but that doesnt fit any of your PCN's esp this one!! neither should pay anything to anyone not doc your wages nor add admin fees. again something is not right here. dx   nothing to do with

    • yes send a letter explaining your business losses as a result of the NFU error and say that you want to avoid taking this to Court, therefore hope that a settlement can be negotiated.  Send as much information as you can to evidence the loss and how these have been calculated.

    • 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.

sorry if this is in wrong section, today Argos were selling on the site a dining table and chairs for £19.99. (was £215.59 £19.99) plus £8.95 deliver charge, seeing this bargain i have purchased it using my paypal account to pay. A friend also was trying to purchase this online but couldnt get through to her basket so called argos customer service line who told her "its a pricing mistake and will be taken off the site ASAP). checking my paypal account it tells me the payment is pending ......


This is a temporary authorisation to make sure your funding source will cover the payment. Your funding source will be charged when Argos Limited completes your order.


my question is this, can argos refuse to honor the sale and simply not complete the order, its their mistake and the item has been on the page for well over 4 hours now.


many thanks in advance

They could but I think they should honour it in this case. Would it be worth an email to Head Office I think?



We could do with some help from you.

Argos have the right to refuse selling the item to you,however email their CEO in this case and see if they will honour your purchase,it may depend on just how many other potential customers tried to purchase the item at the £19.99 price

I would be checking to ensure that they weren't trying to take more than the £19.99 from my account ?

The contract is not formed until the item is actually sent. They can legally cancel it at any point up to the moment it leaves them.


IF that's what their T's and C's say.


Otherwise the contract can be deemed to be formed when they take payment (completing payment, rather than a pre-auth or 'payment hold').

There needs to be offer, acceptance of offer, consideration by both parties, and intent to create 'legal relations' (a contractual relationship).


If they say "contract only formed when goods dispatched" as one of the conditions : they are saying that they don't intend to create the contract until that point, and either side can withdraw up until that point.


Additionally, it isn't unreasonable for them to note that 219.95 -> 19.99 is most likely an error rather than a deliberate offer (or, phrasing it better : deliberate 'invitation to treat')
