    • Long story short son owes parking fines I have to DCA chasing him at my address, an address he hasnt lived at in over a year. He has rang them offered monthly payments which to me is good as he is on furlough and only works 27 hours a week anyway but they refused. One debt is 200 the other 300. I have rang them up told them he dont live here and I do not know his address which I genuinely dont.He isnt on the electoral role and never has been. All i get is cocky remarks and lies one guy said well he spoke to me last week and confirmed he lives there which is a lie! How do I get them off my back and yes Ive told my son to sort it out! Im dreading the confrontation when they do catch me in and I open the door. Any help or advice would be great thanks. Oh one DCA is Marstons the other I cannot remember.
    • So update ,  no result yet , as submissions went to 3.30 and judge wanted to go home and send decision in post    their barrister was horrible , tried to put words in my mouth , tried to get judge to allow them to change pleadings to an oral agreement instead - and amend their particulars - it was denied    which then meant their citations didn’t work ,  as they relied on oral stuff not allowed    so no further  forward yet - when things weren’t going his way, basically told judge to disregard my witness st and called me a ‘liar’    I’m sorry that’s a a serious allegation , and all my WS was backed up by evidence    so frustrated not to get an end today    my barrister said , a little positive is that judge hasn’t awarded favour to them instantly and told us off for wasting his time, so he obviously sees merit in our defence and is giving it full consideration 
    • ElspethR - suggest you read the site link to class action.
    • New to the forum, After being duped into signing over my pension fund for a loan i was hammered with a hefty tax bill of nearly £25,000 which im paying off monthly forever after alot of negotiating. This was back in 2011 and battles have been ongoing for a decade with little success. I can't believe a company can do this to my Sipp with no way of seemingly ever recovering a penny. There is alot more access to information now than in 2011 about pension scams when i believe it was looked upon that we were naive with our futures. Out of interest has anyone out there had any success in recouping any money lost? Thanks
    • I was just surprised there was only a single reference both to "consent" and to "inalienable natural common law", but no references to either admiralty law or the legal person...

    • I sent in the bailiffs to the BBC. They collected £350. It made me smile.

    • 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!
