    • Thanks for that info.  It's all a bit too 'high-tech" for him now though.  It's all happened very swiftly. He doesn't understand 'apps' on phones.  He's never been able to ring overseas from his landline.  He could only use WhatsApp to make international calls on his mobile. But Barc don't offer calls via WA.  He doesn't use a pc anymore.  He's 000s of miles away. And his new partner doesn't speak English!   And he now seems incapable of holding a proper conversation.    My experience in the last year of trying to deal with Barc on his behalf (lots of different matters) has been awful.  They are a nightmare. He was always like a child - which is why I helped. He has assets here. I've helped him with them.  But w/o his funds I can't.
    • I returned an item bought from nike online but I have still not received the refund back into my account. When I contacted nike they said that I need to contact evri as the parcel is not delivered back to the warehouse and they can't process refund until than. When I contact evri they say that since its been more then 5 days I need to contact the merchant to receive my refund. i dont know what i should do in this case that's why i have come here to get some advice.
    • hoho how did i know it's barclays.... clickme Programmable Search Engine CSE.GOOGLE.COM ultimately there is nothing he can do until they 'resolve' the issue but it will be resolved and sorted. barclays have numerous ways to communicate with them due to illnesses that remove vocal communication. the best is the barclays app which you install on his phone. or on his PC/computer /content/dam/lifestyle-images/personal/barclays-journal/di_moment_woman_hearing_aid_phone_3_1.large.medium_quality.jpg Ways to contact us when you have accessibility needs | Barclays WWW.BARCLAYS.CO.UK If illness or disability means you prefer to communicate with us in a particular way, we’ll do everything we can to help. they might just be wanting confirmation it was him and then the A/C will be opened. dx
    • It's Barclays.  I went in to see a manager who does know me and who also knows I was previously helping this guy.  Unfortunately this particular bank do not communicate by email or letter.  Only by phone with the account holder.  It was the 2 ATM withdrawals and 1 transfer that appear to have blocked the account.  He has no-one with authority in the uk to help. He gave me authority to help and use his account to manage his affairs/ pay bills etc - but not in the format the bank require - which is that he sits with me in a branch and fills out forms.  He can't do that. I didn't understand at first why he couldn't ring the bank. Now I do. Having tried to speak to him. He's incapable of talking properly.  Dementia.   I explained this to the manager.  But he said theres nothing I can do without PoA.    Anyway, it's very sad. And I'm very upset as I've known him since I was a teen  The fact you say the council can do nothing about CTax arrears is a reprieve
    • this is not making much sense but thats not usual for the threads from you... the fact that he is abroad and ill ? he cant use a phone..... he cannot easily communicate vocally so phone is out? fullstop? can he not use a chat online facility, most banks websites have them? can you not simply write to the bank and explain this? all banks must under banking rules have methods other that voice to communicate with them 24/7 do you know the reason why the account was blocked yet? is this bank a UK bank? if this has been going on for months now you should have logically already worked these things out for yourself.......

    • 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.

On the 1st March I gave notice to my old broadband provider (Virgin) and signed up with Vodafone. The agreement for this service included the transfer of my phone number from Virgin to them.

 

My service allegedly went active on the 13th march, but my broadband wasn't working until the 21st March.

 

Whilst on the phone to them (my old cable line with virgin) I asked when the number would be transferred across, and was told it hadn't even been requested.

 

I was rather ****ed off by this, but they assured me it was being done there and then.

 

about 10 days later and still nothing, we go into a new month which incurs me more line rental charges from Virgin as my phone service isn't disconnected until the number is transferred.

 

I spend a further 95 mins on the phone with Vodafone and am assured that it's being done, I'm told that it's been sent direct to Openreach and they will do it within 72hrs. I am also told that they will be crediting my account with £30, but when I try to check... the online account I setup is mysterious non existent and I can't set it up again as it doesn't recognise my phone number or account number.

 

They are told that the 72hrs ends at 5pm on Friday 6th and if the number is not transferred by then, my services will be terminated due to breach of contract (they failed to transfer the number which was part of my agreement to use their services)

 

72hrs pass and nothing, virgin claim they've never even received any request to transfer my number over and confirmed this again as of the 16th April.

 

On the 7th April, I send an official complain both through Vodafones website, and via mail to their complaints dept. This complaint terminates my services with them for their failure to do something as simple as transfer my number. A process that has been simplified to make it so easy that a trained monkey could do it.

 

So far they have completely ignored my complaints and have not terminated my service.

 

 

I am now in limbo, I cannot switch to another provider because there is a temp number on my BT line that I have never used and have no intention of ever using... A new provider will try to transfer that number across instead of my virgin one. I am also still paying for a virgin line and number which I've had for many years and don't wish to lose, because it will cause so many problems.

 

Because they had credited my account with £30 (allegedly, I've not seen proof of this) I cancelled my DD and had the previous one of £27.06 returned to me.

 

Today I got a threatening email saying my 'April' bill is unpaid and I owe them £34 (which would be about right if there was a £30 credit as my normal bill would have been £37)

 

So far they have ignored my complaint, failed to transfer my number and failed to terminate my service.

 

They have been clearly informed of their breach of contract, and my service was terminated within the first 30 days (even if they claim 13th March as date service started, it's still less than 30 days).

 

I am now being threatened with my service being restricted, and if it's not paid service disconnection and payment for the full term of the contract will be pursued.

 

I think I need to escalate this to the regulator... But have no idea how to go about this.

 

Switching is supposed to be easy, but this has been the worst mistake and has caused me so much hassle and stress.

Hi Heckler

 

Welcome back to CAG - I would suggest sending an email to the below;

 

nick.jeffery@vodafone.com

 

Vodafone's Staff and System Incompetence knows no bounds. They've been fined just under 5 million at one point for failures in service and issues with complaints.

They are situations where OR and Virgin can actually recover the line as it just goes back into the Allocation Pool / Quarantine.

 

I work for a CP so know all about this :)

 

Email Virgin too;

 

tom.mockridge@virginmedia.co.uk

 

Both will need to talk to OR and create a restore to service for you. Get you back on the Virgin Network if that is an option.

Let me guess – you've been here since 2009 so luckily you know to record all your calls and you've done exactly that, right?

OP - Bankfodder does raise a good point.

Let us know how you get on.

I'm hopeful that virgin will refuse to transfer my number now, as they've been informed in writing that they are not authorised to do so... and as vodafone have never even bothered to attempt this... fingers crossed that it will remain with virgin until such a time as my vodafone line is terminated and I can get a new service elsewhere.

Sadly no... I've never been able to afford a device to record them, I tried to put my cordless phone on speaker and record on my phone... but all I got was muffled/static recordings. It appears that if I have the phone on charge there's some interference with the mic... So lesson learned and I will try again. But I don't have a dedicated device for recording them at this time. I have repeatedly told vodafone to put everything in writing in my written complaints (4 of them)... but so far they have ignored all complaints.
