No luck with the organ grinder. I think I'll need to take this to court and win to prove my point to the other freeholders.

    • @jk2054 and @BankFodder - Your feedbacks in posts #199 and #202 have been incorporated into the attached WS. As usual, amends are in blue in this draft. Based on other WS drafts I've seen where the issues in dispute are part of the WS, I built my first draft WS in the same format and hadn't seen it to be an issue before. You will notice that the 'witness statement' has been replaced with 'Claimant's Statement' so that issues in dispute does not need to be on a separate page before the WS. This is especially given the work that has gone in to reduce the size of the WS to 8 pages. Also thanks for the suggestions re: confidentiality - I agree with your views and will stand firm on this if a condition of confidentiality is brought up. I have not been approached by Evri on this forum or by email. I haven't yet had success in paying the hearing fee. I am calling the court as often as I can (during work breaks/lunch etc.) and have sent 2 emails to the court requesting a call back. If i don't have any success by the end of this week, I'll send another email chasing for a call back. @BankFodder - Also attached is an invoice from Packlink which shows that I was charged by Packlink for these services: "drop-off at EVRi - Next day delivery" and "Proof of Delivery". It also has the payer's address and there are "Origin" and "Destination" fields which have the postcode of the sender and the recipient (I have redacted personal details in the attached invoice).  I am already including this in my evidence bundle (without the redaction) but wanted to share this redacted version so that other people can consider this as example in their bundle of Packlink and Evri's contract being instigated by the sender of the parcel who has paid for the service, and further shows that there is information in the invoice to identify that a third party beneficiary (sender / recipient) is present in the contract between Packlink and Evri. If this invoice is no good, then please let me know / delete it from this post. Draft - Witness Statement and Court Bundle redacted.pdf Packlink invoice - REDACTED.pdf

    • 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.

Hi guys. Can I say what a great site this is for dealign with debt companies like weescot for example. ;) I had to register and have a good look on here due to an issue I had with them but once I found out about administration of justice act, protection of harrassment and so forth and I quoted that to them then for now at least my troubles are over...........But will I be contacted by another company?

 

I will explain the situation. Last september I decided to join 3 mobile. Went to toe local 3 mobile shop and picked the phone/price plan I wanted. Now when I signed up in store I was given a little card with possible add on plans for my mobile. I asked should all of these be OK with my price plan on ym phone and I was told.......yep no bother. We wouldn't give you the card if it weren't. That was OK. About the middle of september time I wanted to exercise my right and change a part of my price plan. I wanted to add on a £5 unlimited internet on my phone. I phoned up and (after at least 6 attempts to speak to somebody non indian who could actually understand what I wanted in the first place) I asked about the add on and got told in no uncertain terms Nope. Just an abrupt no you can't get it added to your phone. I was quite shocked at how rude 3 mobile we're to me on the phone and I hung up and so I decided to make a complaint to the CEO'S office only to get a letter a few days later direct from their office to be told my account was closed and we want £455. I wasn't rude or anything. I decided to email instead as I wasn't phoning back due to the rudeness I had already had ad my handwriting isn't great so it would be hard for me to write a letter of complaint. I insisted I would agree a price plan......even sent at least 3 recorded letters (printed) each one of them was ignored. Just before christmas though I got a lovely letter from wescot threatning me with court action for £455.89. I said to them that I was challenging this due to many factors but to keep the peace I eventually decided to arrange some sort of £20 payment plan.....but I wanted official confirmation from them what the debt was for and wescot said they would get back to me with official letters from 3 mobile. That never materialised despite how many times I asked. Wescot then decided that they would star hounding me and hounding me with letters. Was virtually every day a different letter some for payment plans.........some with paymenty slips.......some threatning me again. I eventually got fed up with wescot and their constant letters and more or less told them that if this didn't stop I was going to the police and would threaten to sue them for continued harrassment. Eventually today though I got a email back saying that they had closed the account. I've paid £20 which means I would owe £435. Now what is likely to happen? Would 3 mobile try and pass that on to another company or whatever? Also if another collector gets involved would it be a good idea to advise them of the problems I had with the phone company in the first place and more or less say to them outright that if they start harrassing me like wescot did then I will take it further with them? Sorry if this doesn't make much sense but I am a little shaky. Nevres have been slightly rattled with all of this carry on. :)

I don't think CARS are the most difficult to deal with (definety a lot easier than wescot) :p I had a dispute with Hutchinson 3G (or 3 moile for short) :wink: At first they passed the debt on to wescot who hounded and hounded me but eventually (thanks to the good info I read on here) :grin: I sent them letters/emails and they passed it back to the client. 3G Oviously passed it on to CARS and I got the same original letter as OP recieved in their case but 1 letter sent (I think it was a template from here) and a little note of my own basically warning them never to phone/email/post to me again and they very quickly erased the debt. I wouldn't worry about them too much.

In my case after I sent a letter? I NEVER heard back from them (Not that the same thing is going to apply in your case) only thing I knew was that I went to their website and entered the numbers on the letter only to be informed the debt doesn't exist on their end. You could try that (Site to pay should be on your letter) although obviously if it still exists don't pay anything and wait to they contact you again.

I know this is a very old bump up (lock if necessary and I do apologise) CCA Around box? Whatever did you mean tigs? X. Anyway, After Wescot went bye bye, C.A.R.S got involved (as 3G passed it on to them obviously) ;) I sent them a letter and some emails and they decided not to hound me again. Not sure if it means I will ever be totally scotfree with this but so far had 2 DCA'S on to me regarding this and I am expecting a bigger battle during 2010 with vodafone regarding something else. Witl everything I have read on here though and all templates and such? I am ready to fight everything and finish them all off once and for all. If I ever can trust me I'm donating as you guys have all helped me out this year like you all don't know.

I think it was because they ended my contract because I confromted then as to speak as they refused to confirm that I was actually allowed the add on (even if I know I was told something very different in the store). I'm not too bothered about the debt as such but I know it may be bound to come bite me in the a**e at somepoint in the future

You may not be bothered about the debt but you still need to know whaqt the charges are for before you agree to pay anything.

As you say it may well come back and bite you on the ass, but it will bite several times if you dont nip it in the bud now.

Get a CCA request of as soon as you can

If I have been helpful please tickle my scales or better still contribute to CAG.

I don't think a CCA request is advisable for a mobile phone account.

 

If you want to know what charges there are then you will ned a Subject Access Request or SAR for short, this will cost you £10, send the letter with a Postal Order to the Mobile Phone Company, also don't sign the letter, print your name, also send the SAR by recorded delivery & keep the reciept as proof of post, this will give them 40 days to comply. The SAR letter can be found in the Debt Collection Library.

 

Also don't phone them, they will bully you & lie to you, just to get you to pay up, insist on everything in writing, if they phone just keep saying to them 'everything in writing', or just put the phone down.

 

Remember this a DCA has absolutely no power over you what so ever.

Just out of curiosity. Since initial letter/email contact from a agency (this goes for anyone and no idea if in right bit of forum so please move if need be) What's the record time that you've seen off the agency?

 

Think I broke my record today lol i.e. 4 hours

When you say "You've seen them off", Does this mean that the DCA has handed back to the Original Creditor or closed their files on you?

 

If this is in 4 hours was this done via email?

If done over the telephone I am hoping that you have recorded the conversation?

 

Stigman

NEVER telephone a DCA

If a DCA rings you, refuse to go through the security questions & hang up!

Don't own debts so are totally powerless

 

Even less than dca,s that own debt

But they've got none any way

 

They are not bailiffs

 

What's the debt history

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Was a three account that was cleared off (Never received any final bill from them) and the account on my credit file is also marked as closed/settled

 

 

No payments have been taken from my account since March that I know of and not once did I receive any sort of final bill

(if I did owe any money which I highly doubt likely it be in double figures only)

 

 

UNLESS only thing I can think of was it was to do with something from them years ago but worked out a 90% off with Lowell for that

That was years ago I was stupid enough to be fleeced

 

 

I mean that's the only possible thing I could think of but not going to chase 3 for it.

 

 

Didn't expect that email this morning tbh but once I told them I wasn't giving them any info they've gave up effectively (well returned it) 4 hours though not bad going for me ;) I await any possible next episode
