    • Thank you. That's very helpful. We would like the diagrams please. I understand that you have completed a written report or statement or completed a form with your account of the accident – but you haven't kept a copy for yourself. Is this correct?
    • Yes i have all the van drivers details .   I referred to ' driving slowly' to my property because the front end of my vehicle was badly damaged , the bonnet was completely cumbled- exposing the engine underneath. I drove slowly as i was scared of my car catching fire or something whilst i was inside . i drove around 2mp round the corner to my property.   It was a transit van, no passengers in the van. He had been in the area working. He lives in another city.   It was 16:25pm, no lights on any vehicles as it was day light. 
    • yes 10 is it that are still not 'accounted for' - possibly the extra 6 billion? Seems likely that despite the already identified horrendous waste of taxpayer money, failure of competence, lying and crony-ism .. the worst may be (likely is) yet to come

    • Thanks. Yes I'm planning on speaking to a lawyer but wondered if any frequent here. Mum won't be living in her place once Dad passes as she is not very mobile, she'll be with our daughter who has a suitable room in the short term until we purchase another property. As far as she's concerned her property will be cleared and placed on the market as soon as Dad's passed. Partly due to it being too big and costly for her to keep running.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

HI guys,

I’m currently assisting my mother with a PPI complaint with Barclaycard (formerly an egg card taken out Online in Q1 of 2004).

I would really appreciate if someone could categorically tell me that EGG had the PPI box pre-ticked during Q1 of 2004 i.e. they have been successful in calming miss-sold PPI with egg.

 

I would be especially over the moon if someone could tell me that it was not possible to proceed with the application if this box was not ticked as that seems of a complete own goal by egg.

 

Barclaycard have offered us quite a chunk of a refund due to Plevin, but my mother believes she did not knowingly apply of the PPI insurance, which would be the case if the box was pre-ticked.

 

We are is still the early stages i.e. we stated that we believed we have been miss-sold to Barclays and the 1st letter had was this Plevin offer, but we still have not sent our evidence nor our full reasons of the miss-selling to Barclaycard as of yet.

 

Note: Barclaycard have stated the application was made online, I have no way to confirm this, but I have a paper copy of the 15 year old agreement from egg which I found filed away.

 

The card is still active and has PPI premiums ongoing although I have made her paid off the balance of the card (+£2000).

Any Help is much appreciated.

Send a Sar, and look at what you get back. Sure, the bank will send you some PPI back, but you need full statements to see exactly what they should be giving you.

See? They havent even got the basics correct. Send a SAR off and go through the paperwork carefully.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

it is a well known fact that the egg site of that time was pre ticked but it was a sep box hidden behind the main screen that got refreshed over the top again so couldnt be seen till the end

something like if you don't untick this box before moving fwd you will be charged.

its on the FOS site examples and here i'm sure.

 

but..

that's not the issue.

 

what BC are rfunding you is the commission they made as it was over 50%

nothing to do with the PPI premiums she paid

so to all intend and purpose that and the PPI tickbox is irrelevant.

 

they are refunding under the plevein ruling what they got paid

not what she paid..

 

and you cant have BOTH.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Thanks renegadeimp & dx100uk!

 

With regard to the SAR it will be my next task.

 

Was it the case when applying online that you print off your own documents, sign them and then send it off in the post? If so then it cannot be possible as I have an credit agreement that was obviously sent to her by post.

 

Yes I understand the Plevein is not what we are trying to pursue but the miss-selling of PPI. Its now up to us to move the complaint further with regards to PPI miss-selling.

 

I suppose the big question here is if we peruse the miss selling of PPI and fail, then do we automatically lose the ability to calm under Plevein?

they would have sent them.

she would have returned their copy retaining hers.

 

if you fail on PPI you can go after plevin refund.

 

however, you have already been offered plevin.

 

 

hope you didn't use that useless resolver site for it?

and used the FOS questionnaire following the advice on the FCA PPI website.?

It would make sense if they sent the documentation through.

 

I used the Barclaycard site, though I placed a minimum of information in.

 

I have requested all the data they have regarding the application on there end, so the wait starts.
