    • dunno you've not scanned up what you've had before how can we tell?  
    • Today , after a lotof years i recieved a letter from this lot. Very friendly, "Were writing to remind you that we havent had any contact from you in a while".  The velvet fist, followed by  a veiled threat to get their preferred debt collectors involved. Yep dead right. In 1992/3 I took out a Student load under duress from DHSS. uP TO 2000 I hadsucessfully gotten deferment on low income. But rarther thansign on as unemployed,I decided to be self employed. I applied and they asked for all sorts of documents. I obliged and then correspondance ceased from them, circa 2001. To date  I have had no correspondance from Student Loans. I was made  redundant in 2009 and  reached 65 in 2012 , at which age the loan should have been cancelled. Now ,today, 12 years on retirement and 11 ( at least years after last contact) I get a letter with veiled threats. Do I , as I smell a scam a) ignore it and hope that Erudio will think that this phishing attempt has failed or b) respond with a statute barred letter or c) remind them of legal terms that loan should be cancelled 12 years ago or d) combination of b) +c)      
    • But I'm not mixing and matching. Sure, when researching I do check multiple avenues, but when speaking, I will open a single post. The Fb post was made in March, it is now June, time has passed, and when the suggestion was made, no further information was given on how I should progress beyond "send a letter", which has meant that I've needed to start another stream - this one, but only after taking the time to research first.

    • 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.

I have received a county court business claim form, issued 2 Nov 2018


Claimant Euro parking services

Solicitors Gladstones

The particulars are

The driver of the vehicle registration (the 'Vehicle ') incurred the parking charge(s) on

06/01/2018 for breaching the terms of parking on the land at Maghull Centre The Defendant was driving the Vehicle and/or is the Keeper of the Vehicle



£160 for Parking Charges/Damages and indemnity costs if applicable, together with interest of £9.37 pursuant to s69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at 8% pa continuing to Judgment at £0.04 per day.

I am no longer the Keeper of the Vehicle they refer to having transferred it to Liverpool on 31 October 2018 in part exchange


This claim form has arrived 10 months after the date of the initial parking charge. I am shocked, as this county court claim form is the first time I have been made aware of a penalty charge on 6 Jan 2018. I have not had a ticket or anything attached to the vehicle on that date or any other date. After numerous difficult phone calls and enquiries I had to inform Euro parking of the vehicle details and registration. Something which I think should have been included in the particulars of claim. ( i contacted the county court and they said they would have expected vehicle detail to be more identifying).


After providing details and registration i was given the following from Euro parking:-

On 6 Jan 2018 an attendant took a photo of the vehicle parked outside the parameters of a parking space .


When he returned later the vehicle had gone, there was no mention of what time he returned

Since that date I was informed that a notice was sent to me 10 Jan 2018


Then again 7 Feb 2018


Then again in March


And since then something was sent in May

I have never received any of this correspondence. The first I have known of any event on 6 Jan is the arrival of a County Court Claim

I am very upset that I feel so threatened by a claim of £ 244.37 so long after the supposed event. The proof has never been made available to me until I contacted Euro Parking Services and had to provide them with the vehicle details and registration.


I feel this is dubious and questionable.

The amount is £ 169.37

Court fee. 25.

Legal rep costs. 50.


Total £ 244.37


I would appreciate any advice. I have a preliminary defence ready to be adjusted before submitting the claim form. I think I have to do this before 20 November


Thanks for your attention

what paperwork do you have and when did you receive it? there are strict protocols that have to be followed before a claim can be issued or the claimant may well get 50% knocked off if they win and have to pay full costs if they lose.



We also need to see the sigange at the site in question to see if their calim actually matches any of the terms.

Note they dont say what it is you are supposed to ahve done or not done, they dont say you owe the money undera contractual term or as a result of breaching a twerm of the contract offered by the signage. Something alse to use against the but until we see the ticket/letters and signs we cant say.



So, where, when and what. From wat you say this seems quite a simple defence but you should bear in mind they may well just create paperwork where none exists to press their claim so get everything you have together with dates and times please.

they havent used telepathy to send you other stuff so tell us what you received and approximately when as you say 10 months ago I had the initial parking charge.


Tell us if you binned the paperwork or whether you just cant find it.

Do the parking co have the correct address for the keeper(you)?

if not then tell us why this may be.


We need to know of every pitfall that may befall you as well as all of their stuff that can help you




What is the VRM?


The only paper work i have is the county court claim form.
