    • Hello, I live in a house with multiple flats and when Royal Mail brought my package they didn't ring anyone, just left my package in the open when public walks to/from the park. I never agreed to this. They already confirmed to the seller that package was left in the open and wasn't given to anyone. Now the seller wants me to report this to police and obtain a reference number. My concern and source of anxiety is talking to police. I never had to deal with police before in my life and after hearing many stories how even small issues like "not politically correct" posts on social media result in record to your name. I don't understand why seller can't obtain this reference number themselves. I've provided all details and was helpful, but seller insist that I must call police myself.  Is it true? Is it something I need to do myself. I would appreciate if anyone could give me some advice. I don't want to sound suspicious, but I really don't like the idea of dealing with police. If it any help, I bought my item on eBay. Thank you 
    • Also, don't forget that the claimant has already spent about 150 bringing the claim.  Even if you agree at 600  they will still have the 150 to deal with and frankly I don't think you should be responsible for that.  The best solution will be to have the case dismissed for lack of protocol and we will deal with that in the defence.  By including that in the defence, we avoid the need for an application notice and we avoid the need for an upfront fee which you might not get back.
    • I agree about your suggestion or settlement, but I don't think you are there yet. Although this is a judgement you will have to make.  For the moment you will need to file a defence to the claim, but there's lots of time and we will see what his response to your letter is and whether or not he agrees to provide you with the information you are asking or if he declines.  It would be useful to have the information but if he declines then this could play into your camp as well.  We may then have to file a process which requires him to comply.  So I understand that you have the electrician statement already in a WhatsApp text.  If you can't get a statement from them then the WhatsApp text will be very useful.
    • I have explained that to her this morning  and have a job starting with her on Tuesday next week so I will chat it through again then As an alternative we can use the whatsapp message wihout the statement of truth direct to the claimant in the letter requesting information as it may help claimant to a decsion My preference is to get this out of the way and settle but not at £1200  £500 or £600 would save us all lots of frustration and time, I have no axe to grind and my client is/ was a very nice man and we both felt the same about each other

    • 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.

Hi all , it is my first time ever discovering forums like these in my life.

 

I'm Matt I'm a 26 year old male and to cut a long sob story short i have been ignoring various debts for years as they always used to get passed from pillar to post so i'm not entirely sure which company owns which debt etc.

 

Following a bereavement in 2012 my life spiraled downwards into chaos , i drank a lot of alcohol every day for a long time i lost my home ,my job , my friends and just about everything you can imagine.

 

I used various payday loans to pay for my drinking once i had lost my job and i tried to take my own life in 2015 because of my debts.

 

I am still involved in mental health services i was diagnosed with Psychosis last year (2018) , i had a terrible time getting abuse 24 hours a day from voices in my head often keeping me awake for 4-5 days in a row.

 

I am enjoying a January voice free, i don't take any medication anymore , it's taken a long time to sit here and have the confidence to post here.

 

I received a letter today from a company called BW Legal which made me think it's about time i start working on a solution.

I was hoping for some advice, help with anything you can while i have motivation to try and solve a very big problem i have and this is my debts.

 

I have followed instructions from the site and i have obtained my credit report, to my suprise my debts are nearly £5000 less than i had anticipated bringing my total debt ( on my noddle report ) to £3745.

 

I am currently receiving ESA ( Employment and Support Allowance ) so i do not have a big income to pay a lot of money a month.

 

I did read about the statue barred sticky thread, i do believe some of my debts are older than 6 years old but i am unsure when the date starts from, also my memory is not very good about the past 6 years because i was drinking heavily. It is also the reason i am hesitant about contacting any of the companies for my account information. I do have letters somewhere dated in the past 3 months which i will try and upload.

 

I have 2 CCJ's i believe one is from Capital 1 credit card for around £500 and a parking fine of around £200.

 

Thanks in advance for any help i might get,

i have been signposted for stepchange by my mental health worker ,

but i was worried i might mess up any chance of Statue barring any debts that might be eligible.

 

I have downloaded a PDF from noddle with all my report on if anyone would like to see it.

 

Lowell £ 499

 

Lantern £ 262

 

Active Securities LTD £ 442

 

Capquest Investments LTD £ 1,288

 

Lowell £ 780

 

Lowell £ 217

 

Barclays Bank Plc £ 62

 

Ee Limited £ 152

 

Thanks again

ive retitled your thread and moved you to the debt self help forum.

lots of like threads to read here to help you.

 

1st the most important ones

the 2 CCJ's

 

cap1 wouldn't have taken you to court, they wouldhave sold the debt on and it would have been a DCA that took you to court.

what date is this CCJ please

 

2nd the parking CCJ.

it wouldn't have been a parking fine, they result in a magistrates court not a county court CCJ

so this would have been a private carparking operator speculative invoice like parking eye/VCS etc

 

as for your other debts

 

it would be useful if you gave us the following details on each debt entry

 

 

original creditor

type of credit

amount owed

defaulted date

who owns it now [DCA].

last payment date.

 

for the minute don't go doing anything

esp DO NOT ring or converse with any DCA

they are NOT BAILIFFS

and have

ZERO legal powers.

 

whats the BW legal letter about..another private parking ticket?

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

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...

The letter from BW Legal i got today i have searched my credit report for it and it comes under settled on 26/1/17 when i click on closed accounts .

 

Thanks so much again for moving my post and giving me a quick response!

 

I'm sorry for being an idiot i didn't read your signature until i replied i won't reply with quoting again i promise.

 

My sister thought it was a good idea to email lowell after i recieved a letter a few weeks ago from my email. Will it count as contact?

 

"This email is regarding the account number in the subject title of this email .

 

Mr MXXXX BXXXXX is a vulnerable man , he is having severe mental health issues and we are looking to take action on several companies responsible for his mental stress , driven to the point of suicide by threatening letters.

 

He does not recall having any account with a company named Lowell ,

please can you provide details of when he opened an account with yourselves ,

with a date and signature so we can look into whether he was vulnerable at the time .

 

Matthew has made it clear he feels he was rushed into certain agreements , with terms and conditions not been fully understood due to this mental health.

 

Kind regards"

 

I also forgot to add , the BW legal letter is a letter threatening to put a CCJ on me if i fail to reply to them or setup a payment arrangement.

 

I have also found a letter from Lowell threatening me with a CCJ for JD williams(Jacamo) ,Vodafone & Vanquis (? Provident loan?) ( not on my credit report )

Lowell Solicitors sent me a letter in December 2018 saying on 08/08/16 a CCJ was entered against you and you were ordered by the court to pay £50 per month.

It says they are considering options to enforce the CCJ as its in arreas.

 

The BW Legal letter says their client is PRAC financial LTD. ( Not a clue who they are ) on page 1.

Page 2 it goes on about how i entered an agreement with Instant cash Loans t/a The Money Shop and how i was assigned to their client

( I'm guessing PRAC Financial? )

 

Thanks so much again for your quick sharp response.

 

Never heard a peep from the Parking Eye one, like.. never. I've tried to answer 'being chased' the best i could.. thanks so much again.

hive off ALL the PDL loans to a new thread in the Payday loan general forum off the main forum tab top left of any page here

list ALL the PDL you have taken out be them being chased or not or on your credit file or not

on the home page of that forum you'll see an irresponsible lending guide

pers id be sending EACH LENDER YOU USED. an IRL claim as they shouldnr have loaned to you in the first place..you could get £100's of pounds wiped out or even back in you pocket here.

so from now on

this thread will be about the remaining debts.

 

your no .1. priority is to deal with the lowells CCJ for the old cap1 debt.

again this needs its own thread please

 

of the main forum tab again your see a financial legal forum

go start a thread there about that one

tell us the story like you have here about it.

this will probably result in you sending the court an N245 variation order but that's to be confirmed.

 

right

on with the other debts.

 

back soon

lets get a few of the necessities out the way first as it will inform you, that, in the whole your situation is nothing to fret about

and to not rush off and start doing things because you've got lots of debt, scary letters, and court judgements, that need your immediate attention..nothing of the sort.....

 

even the CCJ's ...the worst they can do is pass it onto bailiffs, and they have no right of forced entry anyway, and will, if you want to, deal with you sympathetically, if they do get involved.

 

onto debt collectors..DCA's we call them.

 

now they are NOT BAILIFFS

they have ZERO legal powers to do anything whatsoever, other than what you have see which is get a CCJ, which is all you or I can do if we think someone owes us money, so don't fall for their threat-o-grams or think any debt with a DCa must be dealt with as a matter of urgency.

 

as for your debts, those still with the original creditor [for want of a name, for the minute can take a back seat.

 

as for the debts you mentioned later, those that don't show at all on your credit fdile, sadly that doesn't mean they are necessarily statute barred, it just means that the default the original creditor registered has reached its 6th birthday, and when that happens, the whole debt account is removed.

now sadly that doesn't mean its not owed, but if that's happened it reasonable to assume the debt might be statute barred, but only investigation into the debt will tell you that.

 

 

can I assume that NONE of these debts were taken out at your present address, so whomever owns them are not aware of your present address because you have not told them it?

Thanks so much again for the quick response and really valuable information i REALLY appreciate it.

 

None of the debts were taken out at my current address no.

 

I'm just trying to find out all of the payday loans i taken out , as there was a lot. So i can make a new thread like you suggested.

 

But i do still get letters from Lowell and BW Legal to my current address.

yes but they've only got that from say your credit file.

or voters.

officially you must tell your 'creditors' of your correct address else you'll get more backdoor ccj's like you've found.most can be defended IF you know about them.

but we'll deal with that tomorrow

ok time for bed
