    • hoho how did i know it's barclays.... clickme Programmable Search Engine CSE.GOOGLE.COM ultimately there is nothing he can do until they 'resolve' the issue but it will be resolved and sorted. barclays have numerous ways to communicate with them due to illnesses that remove vocal communication. the best is the barclays app which you install on his phone. or on his PC/computer /content/dam/lifestyle-images/personal/barclays-journal/di_moment_woman_hearing_aid_phone_3_1.large.medium_quality.jpg Ways to contact us when you have accessibility needs | Barclays WWW.BARCLAYS.CO.UK If illness or disability means you prefer to communicate with us in a particular way, we’ll do everything we can to help. they might just be wanting confirmation it was him and then the A/C will be opened. dx
    • It's Barclays.  I went in to see a manager who does know me and who also knows I was previously helping this guy.  Unfortunately this particular bank do not communicate by email or letter.  Only by phone with the account holder.  It was the 2 ATM withdrawals and 1 transfer that appear to have blocked the account.  He has no-one with authority in the uk to help. He gave me authority to help and use his account to manage his affairs/ pay bills etc - but not in the format the bank require - which is that he sits with me in a branch and fills out forms.  He can't do that. I didn't understand at first why he couldn't ring the bank. Now I do. Having tried to speak to him. He's incapable of talking properly.  Dementia.   I explained this to the manager.  But he said theres nothing I can do without PoA.    Anyway, it's very sad. And I'm very upset as I've known him since I was a teen  The fact you say the council can do nothing about CTax arrears is a reprieve
    • this is not making much sense but thats not usual for the threads from you... the fact that he is abroad and ill ? he cant use a phone..... he cannot easily communicate vocally so phone is out? fullstop? can he not use a chat online facility, most banks websites have them? can you not simply write to the bank and explain this? all banks must under banking rules have methods other that voice to communicate with them 24/7 do you know the reason why the account was blocked yet? is this bank a UK bank? if this has been going on for months now you should have logically already worked these things out for yourself.......
    • well i see what they respond with from carreg as i paid them for the plate and they put it with a wrong name which is a joke   i did try dvla to register the v750 to change name to my account but say its already been joined to another account    hopefully carreg get it sorted and get a new v750 sent out
    • He wasn't and isn't transferring any funds overseas.  It was 1 small transfer - ironically to me (which he'd done before) - and 2 small ATM withdrawals.  He has a 300/d limit on the card. And can't transfer more than 2k at a time.  This happened a number of months ago. And he isn't able to call the bank from overseas due to health issues.  He's getting his pension monthly (which I set up for him) and he can't access it.  It's a sad state of affairs

    • 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.

Hello everyone,

 

I am new here. Sorry if this problem has already been discussed before, but would really want some advice on the matter.

 

I've joined exercise for less on the 18th of September 2017, and I wanted to join for a month to test out the gym, so the personal trainer there at the time said that I can join and cancel on the same day so that the charge would only be taken for September, they charged me 40 pounds, 20 for admin and 20 for the month.

 

The contract I am on is a rolling contract. although on the terms and condition states that I shouldn't cancel the DD, but I did it anyway because I don't want them to 'accidentally' take another month's cash from me.

 

Got an email from xercise for less (central support team) about arrears, called them and they told me I have to pay the October fee (20) and administrative fees( for cancelling) 25 ( 44.99 in total), Ive hanged up and complain to the gym front desk, they told me they will help contact harlands ( blah blah blah).

 

Nothing happens until the 19 of October which Harlands sent me an email, demanding payment of the 44.99 or they are going to up the charges. I have written the reply below ( not yet sent), and was wondering if there is anything I should add or avoid?

 

-------------

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

Please note that the date I have joined xercise4less on the 18 of September is also the date I have filled in the online cancellation form which would have given you 30 days of notice of cancellation, I had been adviced by member of staff from xercise4 less in the Newcastle-under-Lyme branch to fill in the online cancellation form on the first day due to the fact that I was only interested to join for one month.

No administrative fees will be given.

 

Yours Sincerely

----------

 

Thank you for taking your time to read this. hopefully hear from you soon.

moved to the gym forum

100's of like threads here.

 

simply offer the £20 membership fee else ignore them.

theres nowt they nor any DCA can do

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...

Hi Paar and welcome to CAG

 

If this was a rolling monthly agreement, you would normally have to give a month's notice and then pay one further fee during the notice period.

 

However, you paid the gym's "Joining admin" fee on joining which is questionable, plus you simply followed the explicit advice from the gym's own staff.

 

I would not offer to pay them any more. I'd write to Harlands simply making the points in my para above.

 

Ignore any emails or calls from them in the meantime.

 

:-)

We could do with some help from you

Thanks Dx100uk and Slick132,

I was going to pop them an email to explain the situation,

 

just read from other members that they have been further harassed by them with email replies, I shall write to them.

 

they did tell me they are going to up the charge if I don't call them by certain dates.

 

actually is it worth contacting them at all?

 

given all these are scare tactics?

 

many thanks

Paar

Hi Paar,

 

It may not change the outcome much but sending the letter offering to pay what you owe is the right thing to do.

 

Once you've done that, you can pretty much ignore further comms from Harlands/CRS.

 

Keep us posted.
