    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble
    • Late to this, sorry - my wife claims contributory ESA and got her P60 about two weeks ago. Now I know she's overpaid on her tax and I'm just waiting for HMRC (the department I currently work for) to figure it out. They owe her about £150.

Indigo - not listening.

Need your advice all.


To cut a long story short:

My wife drove in to Harlington station, picked me up and drove out 5 mins later.

The next morning she drove back to the station and dropped me off and left 3 mins later.


Indigo have taken the picture of her driving in in the evening, and out in the morning and claimed that the car was parked at the station without a ticket.


They sent two tickets addressed to the owner of the car (not me or my wife) - both with the same date and time (the exit)

We appealed, both tickets explaining what had happened and they rejected the appeals.


We then sent in Google maps log showing my wife driving to and from the station in the evening and in the morning.

They have said the appeal has been rejected and can't look at any more evidence.

They also said we should complain to the BPA.

I see from other posts that that is a waste of time.


HELP. What should we do?

Have a look at other Indigo threads here. Probably the station is covered by bye-laws and Indigo have no right to demand money from anyone, even if they commit a real parking offence. Check the bye-law situation next time you go there.


Secondly, basic details of your home, work, train times etc., never mind your Google Maps log, would scupper their silly argument in court, not that you would ever get to court.


I presume the experts will advise to ignore Indigo's daft demands, but wait till they are on in the morning. Meanwhile please fill in DX's link, the more info. we have the better.

We could do with some help from you.

Oh dear Indigo have fallen at the first and second hurdles. They are totally inept or corrupt though probably both. They cannot work out two distinct visits and then they compound their idiocy by sending out the NTK to arrive a day too late.


Do not write to them yet. Wait until you get all your ducks in a row then give them both barrels. They have two chances a

of getting money from you now-no hope and Bob Hope.

doesnt matter about thr lateness of the NTK as the OP has identified his wife as driver.

Still doesnt change either the railway byelaws or contract law though so they have no valid claim

My advice is not to encourage them into thinking that by being pig headed eventually you will pay up to make them go away.

I would see if the local paper are interested in a story about a parking co that cant tell the time.


Also ask the railway co for the CCTV of you getting ut of the car on both occasiosn, they cant refuse you. Do that before you go public so you have a chance of letting them shoot themselves in the foot first.

Hi, just my 2p



Indigo will want you to settle this before any court action is mooted. If it goes to the Magistrates Court and found guilt (unlikely) Indigo gets nothing. This is the reason they want to worry you.



As for the BPA being the follow on appeal if you get turned down by indigo is a non starter as the BPA don't do penalty appeals.



I would let them spurt as many letters as they want. They can do nothing nor any debt collector they may choose to use. I don't see it going to court but it's always better to get your evidence together just in case.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

then follow the advice and do nothing as they have no contract and no right to demand anything.

If you had digested the thread thoroughly you would see that they have gone quiet but we recommend keeping your paperwork safe in case they try their luck
