    • Suspect that the claim may need to be heard in HK instead of the UK as you are no longer resident over here.    Let the guys come along and advise.
    • I sent one to Together Money- who are Blemain I believe?  Unless there's another address ? I sent one by post to the address on the Together site...
    • Hi I have received not one but three of the same PAP letters (just different amounts and details) from Moriarty Law, allegedly for three different ADCB credit cards taken out in UAE in 2009 for a total debt they claim is now almost 200,000 pounds across the three accounts.    I think I may have had one credit card from them, but there was nowhere near that amount outstanding, if anything, when I left the UAE for good on September 30, 2010.   There is a difference with my case, however and I need some advice.    I have lived in Hong Kong since 2012 (I am a permanent resident there) and the letters have been sent to my elderly mother's address, which is where my UK bank account is registered, and have been forwarded to me. Though they are dated August 20 and 21 I only received them yesterday.   There are also two follow-up "Final demand before proceedings letter" both dated September 8. In previous years there have only been various DCA letters sent which have all been ignored My queries are this:   1. What would happens if the letters were returned with a note that this person is "no longer lives at this address" - moved abroad”   2. Or should I return the PAP reply form anyway as set out on this forum but with no address on it (it might confuse them with a Hong Kong stamp on the envelope I guess)   3. If I do that, should I send the three forms separately or together?   4. Should I return it saying I have left the country adn not to send any more correspondece to my old address? 5 Or is there any other advice you can give.    I am not sure if I reveal that I am in Hong Kong that could stop UK proceedings, could I have a CCJ in absentia and could it be enforced, or whether could chase me for it in Hong Kong which has a similar statue of limitation law to UK?   Thanks for any speedy advice. Time is short because it takes four or five days for post to get between UK and HK.

    • Hi   Repair and Support Plan states: If your product goes wrong after the 3rd Repair, you can request a replacement.(The faults must be mechanical they say e.g Hard Drive as opposed to physical/accidental to qualify for replacement/vouchers).   My Laptop has had 4 Hard Drive replacements. They are attempting to claim that a corner being missing when the laptop went in for repair over rides Hard Drive Failure and are therefore claiming my laptop has had only 3 repairs.   Also Well fix in 7 days or replacement-1 of the repairs took almost a month. Ive refused delivery of my `fixed` laptop now for 3 months while arguing to and fro with them that they have breached the support plan and I want replacement vouchers.They are now charging me £50 to store my laptop and are going to dispose of it in 6 days if I dont contact them. Been through usual channels..Consumer advice... just found out they wont participate in ADR. I loathe this company they are a disgrace. Ive paid A support Plan £11 per month for over 8 years. Im aware how bad they are and how many people they have shafted. Anyone any idea where I stand ..what I do?I dont want them to get away with broaching the policy as well as binning my laptop.Im left with nothing.

Hi

 

I was wondering if someone can help, i searched for a flight via skyscanner and i decided to buy tickets for Turkish Airlines via budgetair.co.uk, this was over a month ago, nowhere did it state when i was purchasing the tickets were they non refundable.

 

On the 7th March we had some bad news that my wife had serious condition and will require surgery, doctors are saying flying is not safe as it can rupture your stomach veins, i contacted budgetair to let them know of our problem, they replied your ticket is non refundable we can give you back the taxes and even then with our admin fees you will get nothing back. I am absolutely shocked spent over £2000 on the ticket, no compassion, nothing.

 

We do not fly much and never knew "non refundable ticket exists", our tickets did not mention non refundable and nor did it at the time of buying the tickets, this is mis selling surely. This was totally out of our control.

 

Is there anything we can do, i have phoned them and its 10p a minute to ring and already spent over £10 and they are not budging. i have emailed them and requested there complaint procedure but no response. The flight is on 8th april and they have plenty of time to resell the tickets but they have no compassion whatsover.

 

any advice appreciated.

I am sorry to hear of your wife’s illness and hopes she makes a swift recovery.

 

I’m afraid that most air fares are not refundable - you pay a significant extra premium for a ticket that is.

 

Buying through an agent also complicates things.  Personally I always prefer to purchase a flight direct from the airline so that if there is an issue you don’t have to go through a third party but can plead your case directly.

 

Hopefully you will have bought travel insurance given the significant costs of the flights.  If so, you should be able to make a claim on the policy.  If not, I’m not sure you have many options, except to ask the airline directly for a gesture of goodwill.

Check how much you'd get back in taxes.

It won't be a small amount. 

Admin fee cannot be higher than £50 in my experience. 

By all means, start dealing with the airline directly, they will probably be more understanding. 

Write to ceo office and see what they say.

If they refuse to bulge, go on social media and FACTUALLY say to the world what happened. 

They usually pay attention after being named and shamed.
