    • Hi, I have found this group very helpful hence I am here seeking help and advice.   I got myself into a situation where I have now more than £50k in unsecured debts (personal loans & credit cards) and things are now getting out of control as I am struggling to make payments. This is purely my own created situation and I am taking 100% responsibility for it. I am keen to get out of this situation as soon as possible hence I would appreciate any help and advice in this process. I am employed at the moment and don’t want to risk going into IVA or bankruptcy as this would risk losing my job. Being sole bread earner of my family, I cannot afford to lose my job. I have been trying to keep up with the payments so far and had few missed payments instances until 3/4 months ago but got caught up with missed payments somehow using my savings. All my debts are still with original lenders. However I know I am getting into same situation again shortly and won’t be able to get out of it again. I have started exploring Debt Management Plan (DMP) option through StepChange but haven’t submitted it yet. Based on budgeting, I have around £820 available to make payments to all lenders after taking care of all other essential expenses. This is definitely lot more affordable than what I am currently paying to different lenders. 1. Is DMP right option for me in current situation? 2. what are the negative consequences of availing DMP? 3. is there something else that I can do to get out of this situation? I’m determined to clear out all my debts but need bit of breathing space and time. Let me know please if you need any additional information. Thanks in advance for all your help and guidance. MM

    • 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.

I had a DRO last year which after closing my business down wiped out about £9,000 of business rates

and other things such as unpaid tax and electricity etc.

 

All well. We live, we try and if we fail we hope that we can pick ourselves back up and have another go.

 

Now, today I had a letter from Rossendales

they said I owe £1000+ for over payment of tax credit.

There's no way I was overpaid.

To my knowledge it was all signed off and all acccounted for in the DRO.

 

I am trying to move on, not be dragged down by this crap and I will not let them affect me.

 

What to do?

 

I actually called Rossendale and told them this and half way thorugh realised people say do it in writing.

 

They only told me what I know, that they are acting on behalf of HMRC.

 

Really not sure what to do at this stage.

 

Please advise. I am through with these people trying to mess me up.

Sorry about swear words. just got carried away.

 

OK will do.

 

I just checked my folder, I have had letters from hmrc for an over payment of £2** and I kept it as I knew it was included in the original DRO. Is it possible they have added some sort of fees on top of this? If so that does expain it and they can do one.

 

I will call them, do I share personal info with them?

Right called HMRC.

 

They said that for the tax 14/15 they sent out an Annual Declaration in June 15, this was to confirm that I was earning what I said I was earning. I did not receive this letter for whatever reason, I moved from that address in July.

 

Tbh I was lost and I said to the women expain it in simple terms.

because I did not reply to them to confirm some info, they send you to the dogs.

Absolute joke. This is so wrong!

 

I said to her all was above board,

she has now passed me through to over payments team

and that she will send me a form to explain all this,

some kind of appeals form within the next 14 days.

 

I have done nothing wrong here, now I am having to tidy this mess up.

 

Now the women at overpayments is saying there's nothign she can do. And that it's with rossendales.

 

And that any change of address is not a valid reason.

She said that it now belongs to Rossendales.

 

What the actual hell.

 

I did not receive a letter end of.

She said it is in the contract.

That if I did not notify them of a change of address then there's nothign they can do.

 

Sseriously I don't need this right now.

 

If this can not be sorted

can I do a DRO again?

I am not dealing with this.

They are just trying their best to reel in money they have given out.

 

Like the whole notifying them off change of address, that's like a booby trap isn't it.

no its what you should have done

 

 

ok well you need to deal with it

but as said

not with the DCA

they are powerless totally

 

 

she didn't say its sold

they cant sell debts to anyone.

 

 

it just means they have been asked to collect it/chase

just remember THIS IS NOT THE BAILIFF WING

and never can be.

OK you say 'deal directly with HMRC' but the womrn kept saying 'it's too late Rossendale are now dealing with it, you had 42 days to reply' etc..

Can I take abrathr here knowing that Rossendale have no power to make me a visit?

And what about HMRC?

 

Two questions?

Well this whole thing has happaned because I did not reply to a letter to confirm I was still in the same situation. I was already in need of the money when I was getting it, then because I did not sign a letter and confirm I needed the money when I was receiving it they then say 'right we want it all back'!

 

Hmmmm...

 

That's a little unfair is it not?

I was entitled to it. Otherwise I would not have claimed it.

 

I am now unemployed and claiming U.C, where does that leave me?

If you didnt tell them, then as far as the law is concerned, you arent entitled to it.

 

Now, calm down and read the info given. Right now youre panicking and not reading. You are going to be sent appeal forms soon, so get those filled in and wait for an answer. Meanwhile, ignore the DCA. They cannot do ANYTHING. They are there just to scare you into paying.

Who is sending this form out? HMRC or the DCA?

 

I am calm, I have been here before. I am not letting any DCA get me. They are all cons.

 

If I am on Universal Credit now, I am literaly on £30 a week, will this go in my favor if I have to pay back.

 

The issue is I moved address and I think this was the time they might have been writing to me, this is the first I have heard on this matter now.

Hi. I have received a form, it's called TC846.

 

I guess this is a form for me to challenge their claim?

 

I need some advice filling it out.

 

The whole reason I think they are coming at me now demanding £1000+ back is because I could not sign a letter they sent to me asking me to confiem I was still in need of the working tax they had already agreed to pay me, I had moved house around this time and this is why I did not get any letter.

 

The first I heard about all this was last week (6 months later) when a letter from Rossendale was received.

 

The key question on the form is:

 

7. Did you contact us to tel us your personal circumstances on your award notice were wrong or incomplete

a/ [yes/no]

b.

 

7b. Did you contact us to tel us your payments did not match those shown on your award notice.

a. [yes/no]

 

 

8. Don you think the overpayment happened because.

a: we didn't change your award within 30 days of you telling us about a change that reduced your payments [yes/no]

b. we made a mistake [yes/no]

c. we gave you incorrect advice [yes/no]

 

 

At the end of the day I needed the money they gave as I was broke and everything was correct at time of claiming, then they write to me to ask is everything ok, have we paid you correctly for the last however many months? If I had wrote back and said yes everything is fine, I still need the money that would have been ok, but because I did not (I did not receive any letter) then al this happens.

 

I just want to tie this up, can you please help me and best advise on how I can do so.

 

I am claiming universal credit and only have £30 a week spare, it's not even ennough to live off, there's no way I can even think about paying this off. Plus I am well within my right as I was claiming it correctly, but because I did not write back this has all kicked off.

 

Thanks.
