    • 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,

I have 2 loans with welcome.

1 was for a car where I was well ripped off,

and the other for a cash loan. There is no HP.

 

My cash loan was for 2000 and is a fixed sum loan agreement. and to date I have paid back £3839.63.

Aktiv kapital want £450.85. The total amount payable on my credit agreement is £3950.64.

 

I CCA them a few weeks ago and got my original document.

 

Never knew I was paying that much.

 

also got a copy of all payments made since stay of loan in Sept 2007.

 

Interest was added monthly until 05/05/2010 when went to step change. Then frozen.

 

Only 1 fee of £20 for direct debit cancellation in may 2008.

 

I want rid of this debt, feel I've paid enough, or in my calculations only now owe £111.01 minus any extra charges.

What can I do.

 

My next post will be about my car.

AKTIV KAPITAL have not supplied my payments made but my balance is still £6163.23

 

Been paying this since January 2008.

Went to step change in may 2010.

I've looked closely at my credit agreement and there is shortfall extra insurance that I didn't ask for,

and a whole array of confusing figures.

The amount of credit for the goods was 7950.

 

I've been conned and want to sort this out as lost my job, (but am fighting in employment tribunal)

and need to clear up my debts as got loads of them totaling 15k.

Please help

! SAR to each creditor. Only goes to the OC not the new owner. A SAR requests all info they hold on you regardless of how many accounts you have with them.

Just to update, welcome have now replied and said wheres our £10. They sent it back so I returned it to them

A lot of Welcome debts have been removed from credit files by the administrators whilst there is an investigation into the company, it doesn't mean the debt has gone away.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.

shame, they are playing me though as the £10.00 postal order has been cashed

Welcome have 40 days from the date the payment is received to comply with the SAR.

HiWelcome are running out of time

 

. What happens when they do?

 

I'll try to keep this short

 

2 x loans ( 1 for car and 1 for cash) was with welcome finance, then went to AKNow with PRA Group.

 

I challenged back in July 2014 when AK took over the loans.

 

I sent a SAR on 10/09/14 to welcome,

they returned it saying i needed ID,

sent back with the £10, they cashed it but never supplied SAR.

They claimed they never got the £10.00.

 

I challenged AK saying not paying and not acknowledging debt as the copy of the original loan agreement that i have that AK managed to get for me show the figures are wrong, lots of scribbling etc and also GAP insurance which i did not accept or take out.

 

I never heard back from AK after Nov 2014 until

i get 2 letters at the weekend from PRA.

 

Both statement of accounts showing figures owing of

Loan 1 Car - £6163.23

Cash loan - £450.86

Both have PRA reference starting AKD.

Are AK part of PRA?

 

The original cash loan was £2000 plus £1875.64 interest ( 60%) plus £75 fee TOTA £3950.64.

I have paid Welcome £3839.63 to date and nothing since Nov 2013.

 

The car figures are misleading but I have attached for you

 

Im not sure what to do,

the letter isnt threatening it just states that i havent paid anything in the last year.

 

Shall i ignore?

Thanks

Get a sar off to welcome and get reclaiming. They will likely owe you way more than an alleged amount owed to a DCA thats been passed around multipel times.

 

You say they never replied to the SAR... why didnt you take legal action against them back then and force them to comply? Its obvious they owe you and are trying their usual tricks.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I didnt chase it as i'd thought it was all sorted. ( Usual bury head in sand thing i guess)

I will send a new SAR to welcome with ID and see what happens

Yes, it was the second car i had bought off them ( and last), was well ripped off but i know i dont owe £6k.

 

So.... I Ignore SOA from PRA Group and re send a SAR to welcome finance?

Thanks
