    • Hi Nicky Boy, My wife had Advanced Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) which is not curable. The smallest quote for insurance was 1.2k per month (minimum) Her previous two Onco appointments were showing considerable improvements, so we were planning on visiting the USA later this year (Florida) with insurance hopefully at a better rate But the cancer came back with a vengeance I have travel insurance provided by my bank (since I used their credit card for some of the bookings) so I am trying to claim with them. My wife was automatically included in that insurance, so fingers crossed G

    • Okay, so I’ll block their email so it doesn’t come through to my junk mail (this is the first one I’ve received from them). Will they still have to write to my home address in addition to emailing?    Thanks dx100uk!

    • 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,

please if someone could give me advice I would be entirely grateful,

 

I started receiving ESA contributory in the support group 2012

without going into the details last year after a compliance meeting telephone call I was found to have been overpaid since that date,

I am going through the appeal stages at the moment preparing paperwork SSCS1A,

 

I was either informed or read it somewhere in my many searches,

THE QUESTION IS IF MY PAYMENTS STARTED PRE 2013

DO THEY COME UNDER A DIFFERENT LEGISLATION

IF SO HOW WHAT WHERE,

IF NOT THANK YOU FOR ANY INFORMATION,

 

I'm sorry I wasn't shouting just trying to emphasize the issue that I have have a short time to Lodge appeal many thanks again.

Reason for overpayment stated by DWP ?

 

What legislation issue do you think would assist you with this ?

We could do with some help from you.

Once they inform you of the reason for the alleged overpayments then you will be in a better position to pick it apart and expose their falures.

 

 

 

To allow overpayments for 6 years is incredible so unless you failed to divulge all relevant information then it will be their archaic systems at fault.

 

 

 

Dont muddy the waters with legislation, they change the rules to suit themselves anyway.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Good morning thank you again for the responses, I may be clutching at straws but something in my brain(Parkinson's brain) says I read or heard that if a claim was started pre 2013 then any action had to be based on the slightly more civilised regulations. As I said I can live in hope.. regards to all.

 

 

One Little comment I went to my MP on this situation who in a previous administration who had been a Minister in the DWP and she had to constantly refer to her aide for information and that was hit and miss with a lot of I think.

Depends on reason for overpayment, which you have not disclosed.

 

If you don't agree with the way DWP have handled this, then you have options.

 

Contact a charity that helps people with Parkinsons and see if they have a benefits team that can help take forward a complaint.

We could do with some help from you.

Hi I'd like to say thanks for the response I do appreciate it but I do think my question has been misunderstood.

My question simply is, does anyone know yes or no if ESA payments started pre 2013 before the new legislation was introduced, any investigation and the results of that investigation are dealt with, with the legislation in place pre 2013.

Regards

Legislation that applies, is that which applied at the time you last signed any claims disclosure, prior to the underpayment issue being found.

 

During any claim, you might have agreed to an updated disclosure, where you confirmed the information on which your claim was based.

 

If you are in any doubt, ask the question of DWP, which legilslation they took into account, when making any decision. DWP decision makers sometimes will quote the legislation they have considered in their decision document. Ask for copies of any decision makers ' statement of reasons' document that may exist.
