    • Hello,  Me again, back with more questions from my friend because she doesn't want to deal with this part of her life.  She has managed to set up a repayment plan with 247money for the next 3 months.  We have looked at her car finance and she would have reached the 50% payment in Aug 2025  She has 2 questions.  When it comes to Aug 2025 what are her options for VT, I've read a few things and honestly the car sites all seem to give information in different wording so it's hard the grasp the core facts.  If she were to just stop paying the car now, obviously they would action repossession but what is the after math, money outstanding, impact on credit file, court action.  Thank you, 
    • Resolve call have one of my ancient, ancient debts that went statute barred in 2020, I've had a couple of door visits, first one just left a card, second one I spoke to, i told her how old the debt was and she rolled her eyes, and apologised pretty sincerely I thought. Not heard anything from them since.

    • 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.

I applied for PIP and was sent for an assessment. It seemed to go fine, but I had a feeling I wouldn't get it, despite having mobility problems due to arthritis, IBS and a heart condition. However, when I received a copy of his assessment, I was quite shocked to see that he blatantly lied in the letter.


He stated that he'd carried out physical tests, which he did not. He stated that I could freely get both arms behind my head and back, which I can't, and my doctor would testify to this. He also stated that I could get up down off the chair and walk without difficulty, which I can't.


If it weren't for these issues, I'd feel fairly philosophical about being denied PIP, as on a good day I can walk more than 20 meters, albeit slowly, and I can prepare a simple meal, which seems to be the criteria for denying PIP.


However, it really irks me that he lied, and my son was with me the entire time and can testify that these tests were not carried out. Is there anything I can do to complain? I'm only aware of an appeal process, but don't feel that the outcome would change so didn't think I had valid grounds.

Appeal, and inform your local MP too.


They all lie, it's what they're trained to do, they've been doing it for years.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Thanks for your reply. However, appealing won't change the outcome, I just want to know if there's a complaints process.

Yes there's an appeals process, a very well worn one too!


Appealing does change the outcome otherwise they wouldn't have an appeals process in place....you're forgetting that just because you can walk 20 metres and prepare a meal doesn't mean you're not entitled to PIP.


I can do most things, but on other days, I don't even get out of bed or leave the flat, it's these days you need to be telling them about, the days when you are at your worst, not the days in which you're feeling fine and dandy.


The appeals process will be in with their letter stating you're not entitled to PIP.

There is a complaint procedure, ATOS have their own, don't bother or waste your time and effort, from my experience and from reading other threads this is just a paper exercise, they and like your assessor will both rely on fabrication, no matter what.


There is also The Health Care Professional Council who and in all honesty are the same as those who deal with complaints within ATOS just make excuse upon on excuse they will both come back with the very same answer " its your word against the assessor's " and the assessor will always win, wrong but a fact.


The only way that you will be able to prove to the only person that knows the report is a complete lie, which most if not all are, is to yourself.


Put in for a Mandatory Reconsideration and within a month, which is an compulsory obligation for you to be able to appeal and if as expected that comes back as a rejection again based on a pack of lies appeal the decision, because appealing the decision is the only way you could seek justice.


I was in the same situation and like you a year ago, and won my appeal, if I learned anything from it, the time and all the effort complaining against these lemons was a complete and utter waste of time, forget them, as hard as it seems because you are angry, and rightly so, but they are not accountable for their actions, that's why they do, that's why they get away with it.


Just concerntrate all your energies on appealing the decision and don't give up.
