    • I have no intention of providing them any comfort trust me. As you have helped alot of people in respect to DFS may I assume that some of that is in relation to this 'peeling of leather' issue. If so do you think that they are aware it is a manufacturing fault but 'wing it' so to speak for as long as possible? 
    • Morning,  phoned the court this morning. The claim was put back In front if the judge yesterday.  He has ordered a direction's hearing for May 4th via telephone.

    • I’m wondering how and why this person has got involved? She states that she works for West Midlands police in the cyber bullying/online fraud department. How would this have come to her attention?   The only picture that I have seen of someone on here was posted on Facebook 6 years ago - maybe 17 at the time but would be 24 now. No one is physically threatening this person or has anyone contacted him through Facebook (have they?) We, as victims, are merely conducting our own research, as it does not seem to be of interest to the police - more a civil matter.   My son in law holds the same position as the author with Staffordshire Police and he told me that he would be dismissed if he provided this information online. In fact, any official contact from the police must be made through the appropriate channels, including the officer’s full professional details. This is not an official police warning.  Knowing what I do about this slippery car dealer and the fact that HE follows these threads, I would be more likely to believe that this has something to do with him.

    • 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!

Hello everyone,

I would like to know if anyone as won any cases against Blemain in regards to unfair charges etc....

 

I took out a loan in 2006 for £25k secured on my property, I clearly checked the box indicating we did not want PPI only to find that over £5k was added to our loan which was for PPI.

 

However in late 2017 I still had £27k outstanding on a loan which was taken out over 180months. Simple math shows with have paid over £50k back since 2006.

 

My beef with Blaimain/Togrether is :

 

£5k was added to the loan at the front end for PPI to which we clearly said we did not want.

 

Since 2006 our monthly payments have been based on £31k rather than £25K

 

I would like to hear if anyone else has had a similar experience. Thanks.

Hello Andy, thanks for getting back to me.

 

Yes, I have all the documents.....

 

Just continuing from my first post I contacted Blemain/Together in November 2017 to get an update/status on our loan etc...I told there Customer Services Department that I would like to lodge a compliant regarding three points :

 

Firstly - PPI being added to the loan at the start, hence £31k and not £25K which we applied for. We clearly checked the box on the application that no PPI was required.

Secondly - Our monthly repayment since 2006 as been on £31k and not £25k

Thirdly - Unfair and inappropriate charges for missed payments. Our beef is that due to us paying monthly payments on £31k and not £25k this contributed to falling into arrears.

 

I would say that all arrears were paid up and the account is running on track.

 

We received correspondence from Blemain/Together confirming acknowledgement of our compliant which basically said they would investigate however this could take a few months etc.

 

So correspondence was received regularly, monthly from them just saying they were still investigating etc. One of the letters received a few months later said that our PPI was sold by a broker, Loan Line Ltd but Loan Line were no longer trading so Blemain/Together could not help with the PPI element. I went back and told them as far as I was concerned firstly we didn't ask for PPI and secondly we had never had any contact with Loan Line and our contract was with Blemain/Together etc. unfortunately this was still rejected by them and they told me to contact the FSCS...which we did....

  • 3 months later...

Ombudsman will be no use whatsoever as Blemain will argue that loan is over the 25k limit and therefore not a regulated agreement. Ombudsman reply will just be that this matter would be better for a court to resolve. Been there done that got the T Shirt.

 

 

As already said can only really help if we have sight of the agreement with personal details and agreement number removed. Was the agreement signed by the Lender or do you have an original agreement not signed by the lender.
