    • Background: I am a private seller on ebay Item:  brand new toothbrush charger with brand new travel case for the toothbrush How I got the item: these were the accessories come with my electric toothbrush (cost £50, with invoice from amazon uk) If I were to buy the charger and the travel case separately that would cost me £11.99 + £8.49 How much did I sell: £4.99 + £3.1 (postage) Total of £8.09   24 Dec 2020 - sold 27 Dec 2020 - Posted: in a Parcel shop 18 Feb Buyer opened not-received case same day, I refunded the money contacted packlink - submitted a claim of £50 Packlink replied "your parcel is likely lost.","there is a deadline for claims." (conversation attached)   (Tracking up-to-today3 Mar 2021: "07:11 - Tue 26 Jan Your parcel is at our local depot and on its way to you")   What to do now: I will contact myhermes  ----------------------------------------------- (side story) The reason about chasing such a small amount with lots of works:  10 years ago a similar incident happened to me when I shipped a sony camera worth about £500 via parcel2go with hermes, I opt-in for a signature service and the courier just dropped the parcel at the front door of the buyer (and lost). They refused to compensate me.   Today I am a mature student studying law and long term lurker in this forum, I have been reading different threads and fascinated by how knowledgeable you guys in contract law and giving out free professional opinions(pro bono?). I refuse to let these cowboys dodging their ways out of people's right and I wish I could help innocent people like your guys. The best way to similar myself with contract law is to practice them.         Packlink convo 1.pdf

    • When you haven't told us very much. When was the contract made? How long does it last for? How was it made? Was it a cold call on the telephone? Was it a visit to a shop? What's the cost? How old is your elderly mother? She bothered about her credit file? Does she need a mobile phone at all? In other words issue thinking of getting rid of the facility order she simply want something else? That lot for starters
    • Hi all,   Good to be back.   Pay monthly EE sim only - taken out through a company call affordable mobiles few months back by retired elderly mother.   Unfortunately - in use through lockdown (higher call rate than typical + video calls) the signal was very very poor at home.    Distorted calls & dropped calls - continuously and consistently. Complaints from those calling us, and those we call.   I am asking for help on how to get out of this product, as for a retired person who is vulnerable - a reliable mobile service is very important.   Please advise - as I am unsure of how to proceed.   L

    • 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!

Don't think you can buy an English version in the UK for obvious reasons, which i am not going to explain.

 

But you can read it for nothing on Goncalo Amaral blog site, by search for this person. I am not going to post any link.

 

You will know that this book has been subject to court processes in Portugal and been subject to actions in the UK.

 

Allowing a senior Police Officer in Portugal to be able to write such a book, must be questioned.

We could do with some help from you.

As you say unclebulgaria67.

Easy to find and says

This forum is dedicated to finding the truth about what really happened to Madeleine McCann and why there is a UK government cover up.
-Their view anyway.

And-

This 'censored-in-UK' book by Gonçalo Amaral has been translated into English and reproduced here to help increase the chances of it being read by people in the UK.

One of the biggest disturbing,upsetting mysteries i have ever heard about and has preyed on peoples minds for years.

Consumer Dude.

I did not know Cyril Smith knew the McCains.

Read that Clement Freud once shared a office with Cyril Smith.

And he Clement Freud had befriended the McCains after their daughter disappeared.

 

Only distant connection i see is back in the 70s but only that Clement Freud and Cyril Smith shared a office.

Well before the McCains were even born.

1970s, By this time, Freud was a Liberal MP sharing an office with Cyril Smith,

who was named as a prolific paedophile after his death.

 

Cyril Smith died i think in 2010.

Were Clement Freud and Cyril Smith still in touch with each other up to Cyril Smiths death i do not know.

 

All in this article.

I think the links between Cyril Smith and the McCanns are tenuous, TO. Thank you for your research.

Thankyou for your kind words.

I agree that the link is weak but just raises a thought or two.

I did not realise myself how powerful Clement Freud was.The connections he had.Really powerful.

Really to be honest i thought of him many years ago as the chap who did the dog advert.

 

I have been thinking about different things.

As you look around or talk or even write about powerful people you get a feeling of unease.

To think,just a little that there possibly may have been a ring of powerful ones shall we say, with evilness inside them scares the living daylights out of you.

Who would make them accountable,they are so powerful.

 

Because if such a thing was to have happened and came out fully what could be the repercussions possibly worldwide.

I hope i have appeared Diplomatic.Careful.

I meant to say Clement Freud..

 

Easy mistake to make.

I often see you start a thread with one sentence.

Many times after reading that sentence it makes you think.

And many times it leads on to interesting threads that i enjoy.

And the way sometimes you start them.

Bye for now.
