    • 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.

Cabot chasing an old MBNA debt I don't recall having

A google search led me here as I'm in the same boat as MadMat.

 

I received a call yesterday, 21.11.17, from Cabot and the caller asked if I was free to speak to which I replied 'absolutely not'.

 

This was true as I was just leaving for work at 07.45.

 

Today I received a letter dated 17.11.17 saying they have recently confirmed I live at my address.

 

I am in the process of moving house and can only think that the company that did the tenant referencing (I had to supply 10 years of addresses) passed my details on because I'm usually careful about sharing my details.

I have had no credit cards or loans since 2006.

 

I have held my hands up when contacted about my debts, had 3 CCJs, one now paid off, and 11 years on I'm rebuilding my life so this is ....!

 

Would sending the statute barred letter not be acknowledging the debt and potentially open up another route to a CCJ?

 

Also what is the link to the statute barred letter?

its called a phishing attempt. They dont enforce legit debts, so ignore for now but do your homework.

 

Theres no point sending a letter if you dont know what the debt is about, and if they want to enforce it, then they have to provide details of it.

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..

urmm...you cant UN bar a debt

not even a judge can

 

whats the debt all about

and why so you think its statute barred

and have you moved since you took this out?

 

because if you HAVE you need to tell cabot your new address

as they'll go for a backdoor CCJ at the old address and you'll know nowt about it

till its too late.

 

yes they can get a CCJ on an undefended SB'd debt

as no human is ever involved

its a rubberstamped default judgement.

So should I write asking them for more detail / evidence as I'm worried about another CCJ and 6 year hassle?

 

Perhaps my subject header was misleading but by saying I don't recall it doesn't mean I didn't have the card in question

as I fell into the trap of opening new card accounts with 'free' transfers

and then continued spending on the old card that had a zero balance as I owed more than I was earning.

Ha ha, good old cabrot, getting desperate for Xmas profit, ignore them, until they act like adults and tell you what it is they're looking for, and even then, come back here before corresponding with them.

 

If they ring, laugh and hang up. Keep a diary of events.

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!

They say MBNA

- I honestly can't remember if I had an MBNA card as I had just about everything anyone would give me just to be able to buy food and shelter at the time.

 

I know, if I did have and MBNA card,

it would be statute barred as I took a deep breath and dive down in 2006 and stopped paying all creditors just to have some cash.

 

Once I had some cash I acknowledged all creditors that contacted me within the 6 year period.

 

I move next week.

I would advise, dont respond to them for now. If you absolutely want to, you could send a prove it letter. And keep the SB letter if theyre stupid enough to call your bluff.

 

The prove it letter denies all knowledge, plus puts your address on file so they cant get a claim by the back door.

I don't know the card number, but they say "we own your MBNA - CREDIT CARD" (Their use of caps) and they want the repayment process to be as easy as possible and will guide me to free financial advice. Clearly CAG isn't on their list

  • 1 month later...

I sent the statued barred letter and Cabot responded with a 1/2 sheet of paper showing I'd paid £35 a month from 24/07/2013 to 30/09/2013 and therefore the debt isn't statute barred.

 

The only match I can make with this sum is that in 2008 I had a CCJ where we agreed £35 / month and I set up a standing order (or direct debit) to pay and after 2 payments were / returned in 2013 I took it that the debt was paid off.

 

Why else would a solicitor's firm stop taking money?

 

My last letter from Cabot dated gave me 21 days to respond and that was dated 18/12/17 but was received 3 days ago.

 

What next?

 

Cabot are a bunch of chancers for chasing a debt I'm sure was paid.

SO you have a CCJ for the debt?

 

Is cabot the named collector on the CCJ?

If not, then tough luck to them.

 

ALso, they dont chase enforceable debts,

so theres definitley something wrong with it.

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..

Had a CCJ. I paid £35/m for 5 years,

my last payments were returned so I took it the debt was paid.

 

4 years later Cabot have turned up and no, they weren't the named collectors.

 

I keep seeing they don't chase enforceable debts but I've also read they go sneak through the back door with new CCJs

Go check your credit file.

 

Also, get on to the court and find out exactly who owns the debt and who the named claimant is.

 

If its not cabot,

then theres nothing they can do if they arent substituted for the claimant.

If they are, then you need to do your homework.

 

You also need to check 100% if the debt was fully paid, and not just a guess.

 

Also,

who was the named claimant you were paying.

A solicitor? if so, who were their clients?
