    • I understand that you may have suffered an injury and that you have memory problems. Obviously is not a good situation. However, you have to engage with this thread closely if you want to make headway. It is difficult for us to take an interest and then find that there is no contact for two months and then we have to start again refreshing our memories and being enthusiastic about supporting you. If your lack of contact is because of a memory problem then I think that you probably should make a note on a Post-it or something and put it in a prominent place so that you can remember to get back to us. It is very important for you – because you can be certain that the one people won't forget are Vodafone and eventually their debt collectors who will start to put pressure on you and start to make your life very uncomfortable indeed. I see that back in January I advise you to send Vodafone an SAR. Have you done this? It is an essential step. Also, as a matter of interest are you still with Vodafone? I'm afraid Vodafone are a very troublesome company. They are very inefficient – the only thing they seem to be really good about is about debt collection. There are extremely poor at dealing with problems when things go wrong. The one company we haven't had any complaints about so far is GifFGaff and they offer month by month no contract Sim cards. In effect they sent Sim cards out like confetti and no contract is ever started until the Sim card is actually activated in a telephone. This means that there can be no mistake and no commitment until you have actually made the choice to open your phone, put the card in and then to switch on the service. Even then, you are only bound for a month and then another month and then another month and another month – but you choose. As I say, we've had no complaints here. Have you sent Vodafone the SAR?

    • 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!

Details are provided for sending CPR/CCA requests in the link in post #2 kay.

 

With regards to acknowledgement of service...you have 19 days from and including the date on the claim form...but you can do it anytime now if you're sure of your plea and don't require the time to decide and research.

 

Register to use MCOL and acknowledge on line and follow the instructions contained in your pack

Thanks Andy.

 

I honestly do not know how to plea on this matter.

 

My plan from the other threads i researched is to utilise the CPR/CCA request to know if there was any sort of signed agreement then make a plea based on that.

 

The thing is i don't know if the request will be returned before the deadline to acknowledge service.

 

Just trying to avoid a CCJ.

Well the norm is they wont comply to a CPR request...but that's irrelevant but will be referred to within a defence as none compliance and failing to comply with pre action protocol.

With regards to a CCA request..they only have 12 +2 days to comply and if they fail they are in default and unable to enforce or request any relief pursuant to the CCA1974.

 

That's why I stated about using your time (19 days) to test the water....if not complied with in the above timeframe..invariably they cant supply....which then supports any defence.

 

Just basically trying to avoid a CCJ.

 

Then defend all...you can always retract if all the above fails....anything less than defend all is an automatic CCJ for the admitted amount.

Thanks Andy.I will begin to prepare CPR/CCA. So CCA is to the claimant in my case thats LOWELL POTFOLIO, and CPR31.14 is to claimant solicitor which is BW LEGAL. right?

 

Then defend all...you can always retract if all the above fails....anything less than defend all is an automatic CCJ for the admitted amount.

 

Thanks again Andy. in that case i will acknowledge and defend all without any more hesitations.

Yeah same claim number on my claim form on the AOS page so very sure its another reference number required, maybe MCOL number, what you reckon

 

Says "you may wish to enter your own personal reference for this claim" on the AOS page so may not be too bad what i filled in, or what do you think
