You have completely misunderstood. If they wanted, they could withdraw cover for the future. Clearly they can't withdraw cover retrospectively.

 

If PCWorld decided to bluff you out then they might force you to pay the claim fee after which they might put their hands up – or they might decide to go to court. They are a bunch of bullies.

 

If you pay the claim fee then clearly it would be at risk but if you won then you would get it back plus your court fee. Plus you would give PCWorld a bit of a slap – which is no bad thing

If they wish to they can stop my cover for future, I currently have three more expensive tablets still under the cover.

I have just renewed two of them for another year before this happened. So I'll get my money back.

Never made one claim yet against any of them.

 

Also had a laptop from them a couple of years ago with the two years cover they sold me with it, just finished in Dec 2017, I never renewed but never made one claim, was worth about £500.

 

They are all far more valuable then the little out of date 7in tablet i'm making a claim against.

This should work in my favour or not?

 

Can you draft up a mail for me to raise a claim?

send it to my personal inbox if you want @bankfodder.

How many policies do you have altogether? And in respect of how many of them have you made claims?

So I understand that you have four Knowhow policies – and in respect of three of them you have never made any claims.

 

If that is correct then it blows any suggestion from them that you are a serial claimer/abuser of the policy out of the water.

 

Please confirm that is correct

Well in that case I would say that it blows any suggestion by them that you are some kind of serial abuser of know-how policies completely out of the water.

Find your way to MoneyClaim online and open an account there. It's free.

 

In XXX date 2016, the claimant purchased a "Know-How" policy number XXX in respect of a Samsung XXX model tablet computer from the defendant at £4.50 per month

The policy cover includes breakdowns, breakages and "mishaps".

The claimant's six year old daughter left the tablet on the side of a bath and it fell into the water and stopped working.

The defendants refused to honour their contractual obligation to repair or replace the tablet which was damaged as a result of this mishap.

This claim is for the value of a replacement article as per the defendants KnowHow policy not exceeding £250.

check to see if the facts above are correct and if anything has been left out. You should then value your claim at £250 and the fee that you pay will be the fee for that value.

 

On the MoneyClaim website you will be able to start this claim and you will be able to enter the wording above and then save it as a draft so that you can then issue it when you feel that you are ready. The cost of the claim will automatically be added to the total your claim.

 

There is a character limit on the MoneyClaim site. You may have to do tinker with the wording I suggested if it exceeds the limit

Is this correct? if I raise a claim for £250 the fee I pay to raise is the same £250?

I can't risk that, is this is true? I thought it was like £25 for a online claim

I'm afraid that you've misunderstood things once again. The fee that you will pay will be the appropriate fee for a £250 claim. I don't know if this is £25 or £35 but it will be something in that order. You will have to check it out. They will tell you what they want before you click off your credit card and commit yourself.

 

Don't forget that if there is a hearing fee then in order for the claim to progress in the event that they file a defence, you will have to pay the hearing fee. I think it is entirely possible that they will file a defence. I think your chances of winning the case are better than 85%

They must have been informed of my claim as the customer service team replied to my email today stating they are still investing and looking into my claim even though they have replied by letter informing me they have rejected my claim before I raised my county court case.

They had until 30th April to reply.

Just had a email from Moneyclaims, PC world have requested an extension for 14 days

They now have up until 14th May.

Don't know if that's a good thing or bad?

Neither but it probably means that they didn't expect it to go this far and now they've got to organise themselves and decide what to do. Keep us informed if they make any offer and before you accept anything or sign anything

    • Sangie5952   Thanks for such a prompt and informative response.  I have checked my 'Statement of Particulars of Employment' and there is no reference to bonus/thank you awards so it appears that an unauthorised deduction doesn't apply.   If I am not amending my ET1 can you see any reason why I cannot include this in my witness statement?  My concern would be that I had not given the respondent's solicitor sufficient notice of this new fact. 
    • Hi dx no it wasn't 😕 the 1st ended Jan 03 and the second started June 2004, I'm so very useless I just can't work anything outx
    • PPIPCM= 1174/6174*100=19%   so anything you paid and when 19% was PPI on that payment date was this 1st loan paid off by another?  
    • Hi pinkab.   Have you read the PPC successes subforum? There are loads of threads where people won in court and before court.   HB
    • Setting aside an email from a manager which is not contractually binding on the employer, do you have anything available to you that makes nominating you for an award a contractual term?  Is there anything that says that you are contractually entitled to a financial payment- because there can't be an unauthorised deduction of something you aren't entitled to.    You do not need to amend the ET1, if all you are saying is that this is another piece of evidence in respect of the claim you have already submitted. You  amend to add claims. The ET1 is a summary of claim, not the absolute detail. So I can see no reason why you need to amend. That does not, of course, mean that it is evidence of anything either.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
