    • Sorry, just to be clear; I handed the car back in November time.
    • Hi dx,   Thanks for the quick reply!   Unfortunately the history is a tad complex but I'll give it a shot: I originally had a PCP contract on a Volvo. The PCP was coming to an end so I went to renew for a new car. When I went for this, unbeknown to me, my credit rating had slipped so I was declined. In a panic, as I was going to be without wheels for work, the salesman asked if anybody would be willing to take the finance out on my behalf.    Again, in a panic, I asked my brother to and he did not hesitate to take the finance. At the time of the sale, the contract was changed to a  PCH. It wasn't really explained at the time,  what this implied. I suppose it was naive on my part not to look into this further but it seemed like a rush job at the showroom. He just wanted the sale in other words and brushed past all the details... sign here....sign there etc.    Fast forward to COVID and I loose my job. Cant afford the payments. Only had the car a year or so. I ring up to explain this and they tell me of course.....but.......we (Volvo Contract Services/Santander) want £5,000 for early termination. I was goobsmacked.    I told them there's no way I can pay that; I don't have a job. Not interested. So I look into this further and there's FCA advice regarding miss selling of car finance and a lot of what is on that subject applies to my situation so I thought I could ask Volvo/Santander for their complaints procedure before I contact the FCA. I emailed them this request.   Next thing I know I get this letter through my front door today from DWF Law LLP (Manchester) saying that I have 30 days to cough up or else they will issue County Court proceedings. Of course the letters cover page with the actual threat is a mixture of my details and this other persons details and their agreement stapled to it.   As far as I'm aware though, a PCH isn't regulated by the CCA?   What do you reckon?

    • the number of people that can't pay rather than just WON'T pay, that were arrested for non payment of CTAX in the uk can be counted on the fingers of one hand. seriously, forget about that ever happening to you or it ever ever going that far. yours is very obviously not a case of wilful refusal to pay.    get you MP onboard as quickly as you can monday.   i can tell you now the council will not accept £5PCM . you need serious help if you are in such dire trouble and to be honest why has this just happened this year or is this problem greater than simply not paying since april? what happen in previous years were you able to meet CTAX ok? explaining the above in your brief but concise contact with your MP will go along way to them intervening much quicker.

    • 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!

New to the forum:

I am a little horrified.

 

He has my car in his yard (or he certainly did a few weeks ago).

 

If I organise emergency collection of the vehicle

- how do I access the yard to reclaim my car.

Presumably it is locked...

 

I'm going to try to organise collection during the next few days.

 

Any advice?

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...

Latest update - chris has gone AWOL. Steve and Mark have taken over workshop and want all cars gone by end September. Derbyshire police very interested in this case as below. Lots of people have been defrauded.

 

People affected need to ring 101... press # for alternative station and say Derbyshire. Then get through to that constabulary (if you are not from round there).

 

You can quote this incident number and it will make a bigger case. If you can get in to make a statement then great!

 

Ex-employees / customers alike!

 

EDIT: CASE NUMBER 797250917
