    • Hi, yes, those are the people.   It's too late to ask SS to inspect.  This all happened in a big rush between xmas and new year; I complained to the woman I'd been dealing with, she liaised with the MD and came back with the £100 offer, took a couple of days, I refused, she then said I needed to contac the MD. When I emailed him, I got the out of office message back, and then, eventually, the offer of £150 which he deposited, without my agreement, into my account..  So it all took weeks.  I have plenty of photos though.   The social worker saw some of the photographs.  Because of the timing, holidays, everyone busy etc she said she would go by my judgement as to whether Friend should be allowed home (This was before the service was carried out)  I sent her some photos but neither of us mentioned Friend not coming home - nobody wanted him to have to stay in the care home any longer, it was totally inappropriate.  She knew I was going to take some action with regard to the service, but we didn't speak again.     Sorry, trying to catch up with all the questions.. I paid by BACS - it was the only option I was given. They are based in Wallasey, Wirral, and I think they have been there for some time.  I don't think they have disappeared.
    • Yes that sounds correct Commensurate use
    • I don’t have the details to hand, they’ll be on an old IDE hard disk from my old computer and I’ll need to buy an adapter to access those files.   But from memory, I think the case was around 2016 in an English county court. A lawyer was posting progress on a case he was working on, I can’t remember which forum, arguing that Erudios DAF forms breeched unfair contract law.   Erudio settled the matter out of court just before the case was heard when the lawyers client accepted an offer to backdate all his deferments and make changes to future DAF forms.   Very soon after all the posts relating to the case were removed from the forum, I suspect as part of the settlement deal with Erudio.   TBH I wasn’t sure at the time that I was going to be able to use this anyway, given that there was no ruling on the case to refer to.   I just wanted to make them aware that I knew they had granted deferment to somebody who hadn’t used their DAF.   I turned 50 in February 2018.   Strangely, I can’t find a copy of the default notice or their final response.   I say strangely because I have what I thought were all my Erudio letters in a file in date order.   I can only think therefore that they were sent by email and I did have a period were I had to switch email providers and email addresses because emails were being lost, and then when I switched the previous provider deleted everything.   I did manage to backup some of those emails before the previous provider deleted them, but again they would be on my old IDE hard disk, so I don’t have access to them right now.   Sorry I know this isn’t much help.   How essential are these letters?

    • 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!

A description of the issue :

 

I am an oversea student in Manchester.

original student additions:1790 pounds.

original every saver:18680 pounds.

accommodation installment is 1793 pounds.

After paying my accommodation installment on 22/01/2019, all my money in my both account has been deducted on 23/01/2019. It shows "to reconcile" with reference: "fraud prevent GIA ADV".

 

I reported it to the nearest Barclay branch on 23/01/2019. a staff told me that someone will contact me but until now(02/02/2019) no one has contacted me.

 

I am very sad and afraid because on 08/02/2019 I will pay my tuition installment but now I really have no money at all and I don't know what I should do next.

Please can you set out fully what has happened in a bullet pointed chronology

Thanks for reading my post.

 

everything goes well before 22/01/2019.

 

on 22/01/2019, school accommodation installment was paid by a schedule in my student additions account.

it's a regular payment and normal.

 

However, on 23/01/2019, there was transaction statement called "to reconcile" with reference "fraud prevent Gia Adv", which deducted all my money in both my student additions and everyday saver account.

 

I am not sure whether the 2 things have relations.

I don't know why Barclay did it.

 

until now(02/02/2019), I have been to the nearest branch many times but can't get further information.

All the staff told me is to wait until someone contacts me by phone or email.

std practice from Barclays when unknown large sums of money are deposited into and account

they think its a fraud account payment.

 

you should be able to resolve this by sending a copy of your awards [letters] to the fraud dept.

 

slick132 will best advise soon.

Hi Rocber and welcome to CAG

 

"to reconcile" means the bank is using internal processes to check on the source of income or outgoings to comply with either Anti Money Laundering Regulations or anti-fraud checks.

 

The bank will tell you very little or nothing while they carry out their checks.

 

I suggest you contact your student support network. I hope they may have seen such bank activity before and can help you until the problem is resolved.

 

If everything is legitimate, you should see your banking facilities restored within a week or two.

 

Please keep us posted ..........
