    • 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'm currently working my way through old accounts and such like and closing down where applicable those I don't use but have not yet been classed as dormant.

 

One of those accounts was a savings account with a well known retailer, almost 20 years I've had it, they periodically send me a statement, amount saved was under £40.

 

I also had a cc with the same company, it went tits up around the same time as most other ones and it ended up in default,

I wrote to them as I did all of my creditors, stated how it was and that I'd be making token payments and then came consumeractiongroup and I went from debtor with no hope to an alleged debtor that became empowered,

 

I dealt with my alleged debts and helped others around me do the same..the cc debt mentioned here simply faded,

I did for a time receive letters from dca's re the debt but I chose to ignore them as they ignored my plight in the first place.

 

In any case, the cc debt mentioned has been stat barred for some time, maybe 6 years of stat barred, I know the debt doesn't vanish, so it's out there somewhere.

 

My point (ok it took awhile)

when I was closing the aforementioned savings account down they asked me if I wanted the money paid into an account they had on file for me, the account is still live so I agreed for them to do this. (all by phone)....

 

However after the call I was putting paperwork to bed and came across a letter from the original creditor (well known supermarket) where they said at the point of default that they would collect any money they could from any other accounts I may have with them (my savings account possibly?) they never did, but I chose to leave the account alone just in case they went calling on it (for the small amount in it I shouldnt have bothered)

 

So, had this been picked up on when I called them to close the savings account down,

could they have diverted the amount saved and paid it towards the now long gone account stat barre CC account?

and if they had done that would this then have reset the stat barred account?

and all because of me not thinking?

 

I should say that they did close/pay the money into the other not related account so the transaction is done and dusted....BUT...could it have gone so terribly wrong for me if they'd paid it off the original CC?

 

as far as I'm aware they never assigned the debt to any collection agency,

I did have some bottom feeding dca's trying to collect but they were simply ignored.

wish you'd name names!!

 

I will guess this is RBS

and the card was/is a Tesco credit card

which at the time was financed by RBS.

 

so yes they can offset.

 

statute barring in E&W simply means that enforcement of any court judgement cannot be done.

so owners of your debts don't bother.

 

however the debt still exists , and if still owned by the OC, then they can offset.

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...

… and to make it clear, the statute bar does not reset itself.

Thanks for the further clarification re the stat barred, I wasn't sure.

 

Now thats cleared up, the credit card was with Sainsburys Bank, the Savings account was with Sainbsurys.

 

The DCA that attempted to collect was Robinson Way.

You can have 1 point for rbs (assumuing it's them that underwrote Sainsburys Credit Card but 0 for Tesco.....

 

Still 1 point from 2 isn't bad, 'every little helps' right? :-)

meant to be Sainsbury's

they were financed by RBS before they had their own bank later when the rules were relaxed.
