    • Background: I am a private seller on ebay Item:  brand new toothbrush charger with brand new travel case for the toothbrush How I got the item: these were the accessories come with my electric toothbrush (cost £50, with invoice from amazon uk) If I were to buy the charger and the travel case separately that would cost me £11.99 + £8.49 How much did I sell: £4.99 + £3.1 (postage) Total of £8.09   24 Dec 2020 - sold 27 Dec 2020 - Posted: in a Parcel shop 18 Feb Buyer opened not-received case same day, I refunded the money contacted packlink - submitted a claim of £50 Packlink replied "your parcel is likely lost.","there is a deadline for claims." (conversation attached)   (Tracking up-to-today3 Mar 2021: "07:11 - Tue 26 Jan Your parcel is at our local depot and on its way to you")   What to do now: I will contact myhermes  ----------------------------------------------- (side story) The reason about chasing such a small amount with lots of works:  10 years ago a similar incident happened to me when I shipped a sony camera worth about £500 via parcel2go with hermes, I opt-in for a signature service and the courier just dropped the parcel at the front door of the buyer (and lost). They refused to compensate me.   Today I am a mature student studying law and long term lurker in this forum, I have been reading different threads and fascinated by how knowledgeable you guys in contract law and giving out free professional opinions(pro bono?). I refuse to let these cowboys dodging their ways out of people's right and I wish I could help innocent people like your guys. The best way to similar myself with contract law is to practice them.         Packlink convo 1.pdf

    • When you haven't told us very much. When was the contract made? How long does it last for? How was it made? Was it a cold call on the telephone? Was it a visit to a shop? What's the cost? How old is your elderly mother? She bothered about her credit file? Does she need a mobile phone at all? In other words issue thinking of getting rid of the facility order she simply want something else? That lot for starters
    • Hi all,   Good to be back.   Pay monthly EE sim only - taken out through a company call affordable mobiles few months back by retired elderly mother.   Unfortunately - in use through lockdown (higher call rate than typical + video calls) the signal was very very poor at home.    Distorted calls & dropped calls - continuously and consistently. Complaints from those calling us, and those we call.   I am asking for help on how to get out of this product, as for a retired person who is vulnerable - a reliable mobile service is very important.   Please advise - as I am unsure of how to proceed.   L

    • 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!

Hi, I have a secured loan that I got via Ocean Finance which turned out to be Blemain (now Together).

 

Amount £15k Term 180 Months

 

Taken out Jan 2007

End of term Feb 2022

 

I have always paid , no issues or missed.

Only change by me was a monthly payment date due to change of employer and salary into account.

 

I phoned the other month to change this again to a suitable date and was told I had to pay off arrears from previous change of date years ago??!!

 

They adjusted my monthly payment to cover the shortfall about £2.53 per month difference?

I didn't change the date this time either and stuck with it as per years gone by. That is it no other issues at all.

 

Happily ticking along I think great just 4 years to go,

however I had my statement today from them and it says in bold my current monthly payments will not cover the loan at end of term

 

I have paid exactly what was set out by the loan provider from start, its a 15 year loan end of surely.

 

I have paid £219.35 for 128 months and £221.98 for last 4 months and my balance is still £9105.11 which seems a lot as I only have 48 months left to go.

 

Never have I been contacted by them.

 

What is going on ?

 

Any help as this has knocked me for six.

moved to the blemain forum.

 

I would suspect as with all ocean/blemain/together secured loans

you've collected numerous penalty fees because it was raining the day you paid or one of their other stupid reasons they make up for levying all manner of unfathomable fees.

that will be why its never going down now.

 

get a n sar running

get all the statements..

 

you are in for a shock me thinks..

 

but the good thing is they are aLL reclaimable

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..

Its utterly terrifying,

I have paid already over £28.5K for a £15k loan but my statement only shows about £6k paid off over 11 years!!.

 

What are they doing to my account.

 

The statement just shows contractual payment due 25 Jan 18 £219.35,

on next line it says Interest charge (14.4%) 110.60,

then next line direct debit payment 2nd Feb £221.98 etc etc for the whole statement with a running total going up and down in far right column which shows a reduction each month of £100-115 off the capital
