    • He'll be asking Truss for advice and help next ... or maybe go straight to a lettuce He already asked Swella How do you survive all those breaches of ministerial code etc She is rumored to have replied - dunno - if the positions were reversed, I'd have sacked me in without a seconds thought
    • Dear Stu. I have been very annoyed that they put this fee on my account right now, as you said the court might rule that i have to pay it further on. This sounds like a dodgy practice. Below is what the account manager sent to me when i asked her why this was getting added to my account right now. Is this legal what they are doing i.e. pre-empting the judges decision it seems. 'Thank you for the email.  The court fees have been added to your account as you have not vacated the property. If the court decide that the landlord is not able to recoup the costs, we would remove the charge from your account.  At present, the court costs have not been deducted from the payment you made towards the rent.'
    • Yay!! Plan to submit tomorrow. Thanks for all the support. I'm so out of my comfort zone. Will keep thread updated and continue reading. Just want them gone!   
    • I purchased it on Tuesday.morning around 9.30 am, it worked perfectly untill I tried to take a.picture late afternoon when I realized that there is debris inside the lens which comes out on the picture. I message the lad saying I'd like a refund , the lad apologised but said he doesn't give refunds he just exchanges and he said he'd being one out to me which I agreed.   But after mulling it over I thought I wanted a refund as it's too far to go if the replacement goes wrong but he rejected the refund again and then I explained I'll go up tomorrow and ask for a refund and if he rejects again I'll give him a letter of intent to which hole replied, "Bring it on" . After 25 minutes he messages again saying he'd bring a replacement which I declined and said Id like a refund  and there's been no contact since. They have a stall on an indoor market in the Potteries shopping centre Stoke on Trent and I've looked on Company House and I can not find Techzone Mobiles so what does that mean that they shouldn't be trading ? On companies house the nearest thing to the people I bought the phone of is Techzone Buxton Ltd which is registered in Buxton not far from Stoke and there nature of business was retail sales of mobile phones  but that was dissolved in 2022.   Edit:  Yes I think it is the same as the last name is the same of the people on company House and the person I've been messaging are the same ,  I've been messaging the Son of the owner ...

    • 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.

Hi

 

Only signed up today but I've been reading quite a few posts.

Can't wait to use Slick132 letters in regards to Harlands / CRS.

 

How am I best starting the letters as they don't have my correct email or even my address (never moved yet never received any letters they've said they've sent me)?

 

Thanks Annieb_101 x

Backstory ...

 

I had signed up for a 12 month NHS offer with X4L at £1 per month.

I only went to the gym once but kept the contract going until the 12 months were up.

 

I then forgot to cancel so actually paid an extra 3 months at £9.99 (no further contract).

 

When I realised this I cancelled my DD through my bank,

I realise now I should have given 30 days notice.

 

I contacted X4L when I first received the "your account is in default " message and they told me I had an admin fee to pay!!!

 

From then on I've ignored everything and only ever received phone calls and texts, no emails or letters.

 

My question is so I need to check they have my correct address before sending them a letter offering my notice £9.99 payment?

 

Thanks x

Well you could

But imho you had no need to pay those 3 £9.99 payments.

Hi Annieb and welcome to CAG

 

Sorry but I think you have no right to reclaim the DD payments of 29.97 paid since the m/ship went beyond the initial 12 months.

 

If you wanted to cancel, you should have given notice in the last of the initial 12 months. You didn't so the gym was right to treat the m/ship as an ongoing rolling monthly agreement.

 

Use one of my drafts to offer a final 9.99 which you now realise you should have paid before stopping the DD's. Once they refuse to accept your offer, you can simply ignore them.

 

Get a free Cert of Posting when sending the offer letter.

 

Put the draft here for checking first if you want.

Harlands at their Haywards Heath address.

 

The letter goes to them by post as per other threads and don't speak to the gym or Harlands/CRS by phone for any reason; no emails either.

 

No contact apart from the 14 day offer letter.

Hi,

 

I eventually got round to sending the letter and CRS replied bang on the 14 day mark saying they won't accept the £9.99 offer. I sent the letter to Harlands but didn't hear from them.

 

CRS have since posted me another letter and attempted to contact me several times.

 

Where do I go next?

 

Thanks Anna

Hi Annieb,

 

Please read other threads.

 

Harlands/CRS make these threats all the time but never follow through with action.

 

Ignore the threats and don't respond at all.

 

Keep us posted.
