    • thread title updated moved to overseas debt forum. sadly as they are outside any UK jurisdiction upon DCA rules which state in the UK they must not call employers, there not alot you can do to stop these scammers. make sure you totally make private ALL social media twitter/facebook/linked in etc etc as there no-way for them to findout where you work otherwise so you must have a leak somewhere. find it. your employer details arent even legally available to UK DCA's so how have they found it out to date???  simply write to the BANK informing them of your correct and current address ALWAYS!!. if you want to arrange payment or not TO THE BANK ONLY thats upto you. never ever ignore a Statutory Demand a Letter Of Claim a Court Claimform. if if if any of those ever happen. till then ignore and rewash. dx

    • Hello All,  I’m hoping someone can help me urgently here. Firstly, I’d like to say I have read multiple other threads and have some what an idea of what I should be doing, however my case might be slightly different so coming with my own questions here.    my situation is I lived in Dubai and had a credit card and a loan, loan with HSBC and credit card with Emirates (or the other way round), I lost my job and was forced to leave the country as I was staying in the country on my companies visa.    since coming back, after a few years 2 different debt collections agencies have been approaching me (one being IDRW and the other J&P). I’ve never answered IDRWW and they constantly chase me by calling and messaging me and my employer. My current company is ok with this as I explained the situation but I’m soon to be joining a new company who definitely won’t be ok with being messaged and called. I’m afraid to continue to ignore them as they may message and calm the new employer as they have before and I’ll lose my job. However, it seems clear from these forums that dealing with the debt collection agencies is never a good idea. You shouldn’t agree to the amount or pay anything.    j&p caught me on my phone but I still haven't sent them any money or confirmed the amount they’re saying is owed, they keep pushing to pay off the “principal” amount by making monthly payments, from reading these forums it seems like if I make one of those payments (they have provided bank details for ENBD), then it’ll just be paying off interest and not actually clearing the principle debt and the bank won’t even approve receipt of payment or that it’s coming off principle.    this is my predicament as ignoring them might not be an option if they chase my new employer. Maybe there’s a way to ensure the debt collection agency don’t contact my new employer?? I don’t know? Massively appreciate peoples help here. Thanks,

    • 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.

If I ignore something you say it's because I don't think it's relevant and I'm not interested in engaging with you on it.

Why was the elephant on a rampage? It wasn't, it's what they do.

Much of that information is official and from Botaswana documented issues so why is it NOT relevant?

You sound like one who would profit from the elephant hunting and trophy market reintroduction as you seem to be promoting hunting and trophies rather than humane herd and environment management - which you apparently consider not relevant or chose not to engage when your presentations are questioned ?

Or is it just that an elephant has inconvenienced you?

 

Simple fact: its up to Germany whether they import elephant hunting trophies which are widely banned anyway.

Simple fact: 'reintroduce hunting and trophies (never left really did it) and many 'conservation minded' folk you seem to disparage will take their custom elsewhere - but you'll get a newish hunter market - acknowledged

You: Present dubious claims - they will be challenged, whether you like it or not.

 

This bridge must be the last one left in Botaswana if your statement re 130,000 elephants actions are in any way true

Ok so I'll summarise your apparent stance/opinion detailed above and let readers judge

* You are in favor of exterminating elephants specifically via hunting, and might as well profit from the trophies while they last, and Germany and everyone else should import those trophies for sale whether they like it or not?

* You seemingly imply elephants all need to be exterminated; or close too; by hunting; as 'it's what they (all elephants) do' .  So humane culling of a few problematic ones and humane methods of herd management isnt an option or even 'relevant' in your opinion?

* Using available funds to invest in better management of herds, the tourist industry (20% of national income) and the wider environment in Botswana as part of national growth is all ...  not relevant?

Those do seem to be the meaning of your statements.

Smithsonian: The $45,000 question

Verreynne points out that rural villages rarely benefit from income generated by safari tourism, but instead bear the highest costs of human-elephant conflict.

On average, a legal elephant hunt in neighboring countries costs about $45,000. Comparatively, a night in a luxury safari lodge runs closer to $355.

 

1: Is a political and herd management issue

2. Is a greed issue.

Saturday was provisionally the warmest day of the year so far for the UK, according to the Met Office, with 20.9C recorded at Santon Downham, Suffolk, about 8C above average for the time of year.

Germany has just had its warmest March since records began in 1881, with mean temperatures 2.77C above average at 7.4C (45.3F).

A black comedy maybe. I do think it's quite disturbing and imagine his family would be concerned if they knew how he behaved.

Some of the mods on here don't help by humouring him and pretending he's a normal, well-balanced individual when he clearly isn't.

So much for the Torys and Brexit protecting the UKs waters and fish

“Industrial fishing is designed to kill marine life as efficiently as possible,” said Hugo Tagholm, the executive director of Oceana UK. "Everything from sharks to starfish are hoovered up by bottom trawling, which can destroy whole ecosystems and empty our seas of life. This also threatens communities seeking to make a sustainable living from our seas.

As thames water pushes to further rip off captive customers, not get fined for it, and allow more dividends .. for little more than 'aspirations' to do better

"Accounts filed at Companies House show :

(Kennets) accounts, filed more than 12 months after the end of Kennet’s financial year, showed that the company made a £1.15m pre-tax profit for the year to 31 March 2023, up from £374,000 a year earlier. Revenues rose to £1.6m in 2023 – up from £1m in

"Kennet Properties paid out a £14.5m dividend in the year to 31 March 2023"

"Kennet ?takes on? land no longer needed by Britain’s biggest water company before developing it and selling it on, typically for housing or commercial premises. It also received income for the use of sewer networks by third parties for fibre-optic cabling."
