    • 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.

Today I got a message from Payment Protection Scotland about payment of PPI and to pay their invoice. I will start with how everything started.

 

Back in March I had filled in a form about claiming PPI with them and heard nothing back.

 

2 weeks ago I got a call from the Bank Of Scotland's internal PPI team asking me about PPI, what credit cards I had with them, when I got them, was I miss sold it or did I know etc and the man said thanks for everything, I'll let you know in 4 weeks what decision has been made,

 

he said if any payment of PPI is due because I only paid it for one year,

he told me that over the phone I only paid PPI for one year then it would be paid into my account and if not a letter would follow explaining why not.

 

I don't check my bank account everyday I had no idea about this payment.

I called the Bank of Scotland and they confirmed that the payment was made by them into my account for the PPI I am owed but they can't comment on any agreement made between me any other party.

 

they want me to pay over £90 in fees and I don't know what to do.

I don't know if the man at the Bank of Scotland phoning me was to do with them or if it's just their own internal team making phone calls to customers.

 

I don't know what to think or do.

Tough luck for using A CMC when you could have done it for free yourself

Doesn't matter who rang you really

 

You employed them to re claim PPI

You got the PPI back

 

Their fees are due.

 

Next time ask cag first!!

 

Can't see how you can get out of it sorry

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...

I know it's my own fault.

This was back in March so long before I noticed this site and long before I knew about anything to do with PPI!

I think I'm better just paying it.

 

The lady on the phone did say to me to enjoy the money and spend it and pay the invoice when I could which I haven't received

I was going to say well, I did what you asked and enjoyed it lol.

 

Maybe I could pay the invoice in installments?

Do you think they would let me do that

or am I better just clearing it and that's that?

I don't have the paperwork but their website says.

 

We operate on a strictly No Win No Fee basis.

If we do win our fee is 30% and this is payable from the settlement we receive from your lender. So you pay absolutely no upfront costs.

 

You also entered into a legally binding contract with us therefore you are obliged to pay us the final invoice amount.

 

We calculate our fee (30% of your final settlement figure) as soon as you have accepted your PPI settlement offer.

We endeavour to invoice you as soon as possible so that you can pay us for our services;

you can then go on and enjoy your PPI compensation without worrying about paying our invoice.

If our invoice arrives before you receive your settlement cheque, then you pay the outstanding balance when you cheque has cleared.

 

When I receive a settlement offer, what do I do?

 

It is very important you let us know as soon as possible.

The likelihood is that we will also receive notification of any settlement offer made to you and we would want to check this figure to make sure you are receiving the right amount.

 

on one hand if you receive an offer you must let them know but they also say the likelihood is they will also receive notification.

I'm pretty sure what I signed said much the same thing.

I know it was done through a phone call.

 

I gave my details over the phone, they sent out a copy of my name and address and bank and they just needed my signature.

I'm sure there would have been small print on it.

 

I just didn't know what the situation was on it because it came from the bank.

If it was a letter from Payment Protection Scotland It would be different

 

I just thought with the phone call a few weeks ago and then the payment from the bank that the bank had given it to me on their own without any coercion

I guess that might not be the case since they knew about the money being given to me.

as dx100uk says

 

"You employed them to re claim PPI

I'm all for consumers being treated fairly, but you seem to be trying to look for an angle not to pay a company YOU asked to do a job for you.

 

Scottishbloke17

you said, "they want me to pay over £90 in fees and I don't know what to do.

I don't know if the man at the Bank of Scotland phoning me was to do with them or if it's just their own internal team making phone callsicon to customers.

 

I don't know what to think or do."

 

here's a wild crazy idea!! ... why not just ask the CMC or the bank ??

 

Sorry if I sound harsh scottishbloke17 but you seem to just want to avoid paying a debt and have no real reason to be unhappy with the CMC.

Shame on you! the country would be bust if we all acted like that.
