    • Pandemic will just accelerate the change that was already happening.   High Street Retailers will go bust, as they cannot compete with online warehouse operators. Government will have to reduce the business rates significantly and landlords who own the shop buildings will need to reduce the rents they charge.   Retailers will need to make changes to the layout of their shops to make them more attractive, as a leisure experience. If they are offering just racks or shelfs of goods, consumers may think they are not getting anything extra than if they bought online.   As more people work from home, they will be available for home deliveries, so online retailers will gain the sales. The high streets where these homeworkers  use to work close to will lose sales.   Travel sector including airlines will see many go bust, more so, if there is a second wave of the virus.  Holidays based in peoples home countries or in neighbouring countries will be more popular. Caravans, motorhome sales are going to see massive increases, as people want their own clean spaces. And caravan parks will see more demand as a consequence, but will have to update facilities.   Pretty much every sector of the economy is going to see the biggest changes they have ever gone through and in a very short space of time.
    • This article in the Indy has some interesting views on how Brexit has affected the Uk's response to Covid.   https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/coronavirus-lockdown-government-death-toll-boris-johnson-a9551516.html
    • 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

Buenas noches, les cuento mi caso o el de un error tan grande en mi vida, tomo un artículo en M&S por menos de 10 libras, la seguridad de la tienda me lleva por una puerta trasera y me dice que puedo No vuelva a la tienda, pague por el producto tomado, todo esto sin la intervención de la policía, firme un documento llamado Sistema de Notificación de Recuperación Civil / Violación en el que me dice nuevamente que no puedo ir a ninguna tienda de MS, y que DWF se pondrá en contacto para el pago de una demanda formal (no especifica el monto).

Después de una semana de esto, recibí una carta de DWF solicitando un pago de 85 libras para los costos de seguridad en los próximos 14 días.

¿Por qué no pagar esta factura? Si no lo hago, ¿puedo tener consecuencias legales, un seize o estar en la lista de morosos?

Estoy muy preocupado por lo que pueda pasar, espero que alguien pueda ayudarme con esto.

 

Good evening, I tell you my case or the one of such a big mistake in my life, I take an article in M ​​& S for less than 10 pounds, the security of the store takes me through a back door and tells me that I can not go back to the store , pay for the product taken, all this without the intervention of the police, sign a document called Civil Recovery / Violation Notification System in which you tell me again that I can not go to any MS shop, and that DWF will be put in contact for the payment of a formal demand (does not specify the amount).

After a week of this, I received a letter from DWF requesting a payment of 85 pounds for security costs in the next 14 days.

Why not pay this bill? If I do not, can I have legal consequences, a seize or be on the list of defaulters?

I'm very worried about what might happen, I hope someone can help me with this.

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

It looks as if you've had a problem in Marks and Spencer. But if you want us to help you, we need the story in English please.

It's OK, don't worry. :)

 

The short answer is that you don't need to pay DWF and we wouldn't advise you to do that. People should be here later to give you a longer answer.

Thank you for taking your time to answer! What I do not understand is because these types of letters are sent? the benefit obtained from the letters is the M & S in this case or for the company DWF?

it goes directly into DWF's pocket

thus funding the harassment of further people like you.

 

IGNORE totally.

Hi

As was mentioned in another thread regarding RLP, where goods were paid for (even after the event) there is no cause of action as it has been rectified before DWF could get involved.

DWF are a firm of solicitors and for some people letters from them gives them an air of authority. Civil recovery is only a tiny amount of their day to day work.

 

Security staff are paid irrespective of whether they catch anyone or not so there can never be any security costs. There have been no court cases since 2012 in regard to civil recovery so these companies rely on ignorance to get people to pay up. Luckily you have found CAG and we all know what to do with those letters.

 

On a brighter note, DWF only (?) send out three or four letters and then they stop so ignoring them is the best option for you.

 

What is far more important is for you to examine your actions and try to work out why you did this.


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
