    • The agreement started 11/02/2019  for 47 monthly hire payments   Threat-o-gram : We are instructed on behalf of Hyundai Capital UK Limited T/a Hyundai Finance Contract Hire.  This is inaccurate, as on my hire agreement it says - Owner Santander Consumer (UK) plc trading as Volvo Car Financial Services. Hyundai must be who this other persons agreement is with.   The only will is: Should you fail to make payment of the outstanding bablnce of £5,000, or alternatively provide realistic payment proposals within the next 30 days, we are instructed to issue County Court proceedings against you for the balance outstanding. Such proceedings will also include claim for costs.   Yes I still have my agreement. 
    • Hi M10,   Compared to MANY other cases we see here, a refund of 80% is a decent offer in the circumstances.   Take it and get yourself a new item.   Far better than Very and Apple each denying responsibility and passing the buck, and you being stuck in the middle for months with no help.
    • thanks for all that.... yes interesting. you handed the car back in nov 2020, how long was the lease agreement for and when did it start?   if you read the threat-o-gram carefully it doesn't say WILL anything. who are stated as DWF's client please ? and have you still your copy of this agreement?

    • 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!

Hi

please can you help provide any update on Chris,

his whereabouts and what will happen to the vehicles if he does a flit back to Cornwall as suggested?

 

He has had our vehicle for about 3 years, paid in advance to restore.

 

Forget the money, we just want the vehicle back.

 

Any advice would be very helpful.

 

Much appreciated.

Hi I hope you can help with some advice.

 

Chris has had our mini for a good few years now - paid in istallments.

 

His last email (Jan 2016) showed the vehicle in primer (albeit it could be any mini) and request for final payment which was made.

Since then it's been radio silence.

 

We've tried emailing, calling, messaging but getting nothing back.

 

I've read other threads on here about the company;

the fact Chris is now only working 3 days a week, potentially flitting to Cornwall etc.

All very worrying.

 

I need to try and find out where our vehicle is (it was at Glossop but it appears he has a couple of garages now) and how best to recover it.

 

Many thanks for any advice.

Thanks. As an update,

I've had a reply to my messenger message to Chris earlier today.

 

saying the workshop is closed to the public in any event,

plus not working there Friday afternoons and weekends.

So I can't 'drop in' as I was hoping to.

 

He has a massive backlog and will be in touch when he's back on it.

Still v concerned this is just a fob off.

Thanks.

I've recovered our mini,

however to recover if you need to recover the money paid for work not completed

 

I've been told to do it as a group of consumers rather than individually.

 

Did you pay him and did he do the work?

Did they get any extra money from you based on the emails / photos?

If so would you consider reporting him to the police where they can consider if there has been a fraud by false representation?

in my case he took the car after verbal estimate and initial deposit.

Sent email updates confirming work had been done and requesting next instalments which were paid.

 

 

I've recovered vehicle, however none if the work has been done;

it's exactly how I handed it to him,

just 3 years more rusty and falling to bits.

 

 

He's clearly taken money with absolutely no intention to do any work and indeed, lied by email to extract more money from me.

 

Surely this is criminal and he needs to be locked up by the police.

The small claims court/litigation route,

will only prevent him from being a director of a limited company but not put him behind bars where he can't prey on people who love their cars.

 

How do we collect names of everyone who has been affected by this and get him done for fraud?

Why do you think I asked a specific question about any representation he may have made :

Did they get any extra money from you based on the emails / photos?

If so would you consider reporting him to the police where they can consider if there has been a fraud by false representation?

 

I asked this on the thread:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?475058-Northwest-Mini-Centre-Glossop-delay&p=5060400#post5060400

I asked on the 11th, but got no reply.

Sorry I didn't see that post. There are a few on here re nwmc and it's all a bit confusing. How can we speak directly? Can I call you?

 

Why would you want to speak directly?

I could tell you any old tall tale (I know I won't but how do you know that)

Put it all here (making sure you follow the site rules).

That way:

a) Others can contribute,

b) any advice I or others give is open to review, and

c) the information is there for others to use, too.

wish people would keep to their own threads

then it wouldn't get confusing

Personally I don't want to post the full story or updates on here as Chris also reads this site.

 

I want to find a way of getting names/ numbers for all affected and then seeing what police will do - lot more chance of them taking it seriously if there is a group.

 

And yes, he did get next instalments based on the emails saying he had done work.

 

I know it's fraud, you know it's fraud but how to get him in custody is another matter.

 

Problem is admin tell you to start a new thread each time. Anyway.

 

He did export money based on the emails = fraud.

 

However getting him in custody is another matter.

Then report it to the police, and ask the site team if you can post the crime ref. no., so others can make linked reports .....

 

(& hope they don't just say "speak to ActionFraud"....)

I'm keen to set up some kind of group just go try and group all his victims together so we can try and work out how to move forward and try and get him brought to book for what he's done.

 

I'm very certain if a group of us went to Derbyshire police and made formal complains about his dealings they would feel inclined to investigate as it's pretty clear Chris was running a ****.

 

I don't believe he had any intention of completing any of the restoration work he took on and I'm yet to hear of a satisfied customer.

 

How did it go recovering your mini??

 

Was chris there on the day and did he offer any kind of explanation??
