    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble
    • Late to this, sorry - my wife claims contributory ESA and got her P60 about two weeks ago. Now I know she's overpaid on her tax and I'm just waiting for HMRC (the department I currently work for) to figure it out. They owe her about £150.

Hey all,


Looks like this forum is the answer to all my problems.To be honest would like to thanks dx100 uk & Martin 2006 for all their support in answering all the queries posted.This forum certainly points you in the right direction.


So to begin with Admiral insurance i received the renewals pack for my multi car insurance ,the price they quoted me looked too high,so like usual i rang them to check if it was their best quote, i told them i got a quote elsewere which was 2200 ,my quote was 2500 ,so the gentlemen applied some discounts and quoted me a little above 2200 (wish i had said 1200).


Now the interesting part on my renewals which i noticed was that the cars were kept at my old address although i had called to change my address a couple of times,once i asked the advisor why this was as such he said theagent might not have changed this and would need to check further ,so when he put this address in where i was living it bought the quote of 2200 to 1100 (Lucky me) which i was pleased with.


However my concern here is i am with them from over 7 years & have changed the address twice in a year & also have changed the car ,i queried this with the advisor that if the "Post code where kept" hasnt been changed over this year then its not my fault and i had paid the wrong premium during this address change to which he replied he will have to check the call(i remember calling & changing my address in june which he confirmed) He further advised he will have to go through the call log & will come back to me with an outcome.


Now i know they will try to put this on me saying i have not updated the details & its my fault which i dont think it is coz as soon as i moved to a different address i had called the insurance to change this & the agent has onfirmed.


I just want to check what the insurance company can do in this case to prevent them from giving me a refund?

i m sure they have their own tactics in relaying this back and putting this on my head




Shall i complaint?

Will they accept their liability?

what should i wary of when they call me back?

how shall i proceed?





Any help or direction is much appreciated again


As always many thanks again

I should proceed by being straight dealing and honest about everything. Don't start complaining until you know what you are going to complain about. In what way would being wary make a difference when they call you back. If they call you back.


I'm very pleased that you like the advice given on this site. No doubt then you have read our customer services guide and also you have call recording equipment and you record all your calls.


Far too many people – in fact most people don't bother to record the calls. Then they lived to regret it. If you had recorded your calls giving the address changes to the insurance company then you wouldn't have any problems or any worries about it.


If you like the advice we give on this forum then I think that you need to start implementing it.


Let us know what happens as things develop – but of course when they do call back, you will be recording it, won't you?

Think you need to remember that when you phone an Insurers call centre, that you are speaking to someone connected to a telephony headset trying to listen to you and make sense of what they are seeing on their computer screen. In the background they have display screens showing 50 calls waiting in a queue and they are targetted to have an average call duration of say 5 minutes per customer.


Most Insurers customer service staff are not going to spend over half an hour with such calls, resolving everything in one phone call. Plus they normally have restricted authorisation as to what they are allowed to do and would need a supervisor or manager to enter their authorisation for a backdated change on the policy.


Following your call with Admiral, it will get referred to someone who will take the time to see what has happened. If they find a mistake, they will correct it from the relevant date and if this produces a refund, they will process it to the account Direct Debits are made from.


If they come back to you with an explanation about why a refund is not due, then ask for a full breakdown in writing stating out how the premiums have been calculated for the year, with full details of how the policy changes affected the premium.


Hopefully you will get this resolved asap and if necessary for compensation reasons you can complain about them not applying the refund earlier. They might issue a payment to reflect the mistake.


Come back to let us know what happens.

We could do with some help from you.
