    • Morning  I am sorry for this unacceptable delay on my behalf, however I never thought a simple complaint letter would cause me so much stress along with anger towards this company 🙄 however I only have this weekend to get things rolling. I should be back at hospital Monday (as long as they don't cancel on me again) and won't be upto much for a while from then on 🤔 So please bare with me, I need to condense my letter as it's totally long winded and off in points, I'm taking the advice given for prin 6 and 7, but was also considering prin 9,  Trust is also a major part for me here:  yes I did trust they had my interests and I totally relied on their advice and judgement, which I now know was all given with their own interest in mind not mine and for their own benefit and gains, no to assist me in any way.

    • Get rid of the car? I'm not entirely sure what you mean.    The long and short of it is, he has exponentially screwed up, not only illegally, but by lying on more than one occasion, he doesn't have a defence as if a judge looked at the evidence I'd 99. 99% win. I did everything I was supposed to, he has thus far avoided any responsibility for his actions. If it means going to court in brum of he wants to put in a defence, then so be it.    If I do as you say, and I'm presuming here that you mean send the car back to him,  if he accepts it back he then has the car, my money for the car and I wouldn't just be filing for delivery then, would I?  I'd be filing for the cost of the car plus delivery.  Or do you mean sell the car to someone else?    I think I'll take advice elsewhere as so far the advice I have had elsewhere agrees with the outcome I want, for him to collect the vehicle and refund me the money, as he is by law required to do.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

We are on pay as you go both gas and electric and until the meters packed up electric on 31st Dec and then the gas on monday.

everything was ok.

 

the electric meter packing up left us with no electric at all and because EE were having their break they thought it would be a good idea not to have an emergency number..

I ended up speaking to SSE who came out 30 mins later to check the power into the house as they said just in case its a fault their side.

 

it wasn't,

it was a faulty meter,

SSE electrician got authority to bypass meter.

we then spent from 2nd jan to Tuesday 8th trying to get the meter sorted.

 

it was changed on the 8th after they reported us to SSE for unauthorised meter bypass,

which wasn't the case,

the meter was changed for a key meter.

 

the gas meter packed up on Monday this week,

and after lots of phone calls,

they sent someone to change the meter on tuesday.

that was changed for a card meter. no card left and no key left.

 

now EE have gone to the wall,

and ofgem who`s advise is to stay put until they change us over,

but where does that leave us without any means to top up our gas or electric..

 

.anyone have any suggestions have tried ofgem on their Facebook page but still waiting for a response...…

.thank you

Luckily as you've been here since 2009 you are fully aware that you never call these people without a call recorder and so you will have been recording all your phone calls. The recordings will be extremely useful to you later on when you start showing them that in fact you were authorised to carry out the bypass.

when the meter compliance chap came round, he confirmed it was sse that did the Bypass and that Economy would be getting the full bill for everything...

 

Rather than contact them that way better off ring them first thing in the morning.
unfortunately tried that then just ended up in a long queue with CAB, so will try again today.

thank you, will go up there today and see if i can get a card to do gas at least.

 

thank you all for your responses, will let you know how i get on ...cheers

waited till next day by which point we ran out of gas,

 

by this point had an email to say ovo had taken over economy,

i phoned them,

they gave me a code to get a key for electric and said the key will have £25 credit to cover the credit i lost with economy,

gave me a code for the gas,

the card was collected from a specific shop,
