    • agree with all that HB, but biden certainly didn't excel, and difficult as that is with a garbage spouter like the bean stain coloured Trump, it is what he needs to be able to not just handle - but show up as the spoiling garbage it is. Grown ups don't win by allowing spoiled children free reign in their tantrums.   Admittedly the host failed miserably, but Bidens preparedness was clearly sadly lacking.  
    • Good morning I've attached the reply I've received from Marquis in response to my letter of claim.I would like to add a few things that I consider important. I first reported the heater fault on August 3rd. That was the 42 day since purchase, but Marquis had had the van for 12 days so the clock stops as I understand it so it was the 30th day which means that the fault was present when it was sold. They had had one chance to repair and failed to investigate any further. I think the cost that they are refusing to pay are more than reasonable. An offer of a tank of diesel world have settled part of it.   And they are definitely not getting a copy of my bank statement   Although I am sure that I'm not obliged to use the Warranty provided I've been reading my Warranty document and it says it's administered by "A1 guarantee ltd "and they are who I should ring to make a claim.The email address to make a complaint is a "global ins" email. i find it very confusing as in the front of the schedule it says "This guarantee is a non-insured product, any obligation to repair your motorhome will be our sole responsibility. Should we cease to trade, then this product will no longer be valid"

    • 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 .

I'm just after a bit of advice please and may not be on the correct sub forum.  I guess at this stage I'm just looking at how to proceed?


Yesterday I received a missed call and noticed a voicemail message to ring DWF Solicitors quoting a case reference number.  I did call back and went through to an answering machine and left my name and number to contact me back.  I still haven't received a call back as of yet.


I couldn't think what this call could relate to and have just checked on the internet and noticed DWF deal with many retail outlets.


The only thing I can imagine is that this relates to an accident that occurred around this time last year at a well known supermarket.  I lived a few minutes away from this super market and would shop there regularly; parking near enough the same spot every time.  However, on one evening, I was asked to pick a few items up for a company that I was working for and had use of the company van (I was insured under business insurance) anyhow on entering the car park and not thinking, I drove towards the same area of the car park where I usually park and hit the overhead barrier causing damage to the van and the barrier.  


I immediately parked up and went inside to inform the staff and provided my personal details and phone number.  They also took pictures of the van (which stated the business name and reg plate).  I was told the store manager wasn't in but would contact me but has never done so.  I informed my boss who said to do nothing else and that he'd wait for a response from the store but has never heard anything from them.


Months after I too heard nothing and have since moved address, I have repeatedly checked for old post (every few months since I left) and have changed all correspondence addresses over and since this call have again contacted the occupants to my old home for any letters I may have received, however, they're not getting back to me.  


I guess I'm concerned from reading around these posts regarding DWF, that the supermarket have used their insurance to resolve the barrier and have now passed the matter to DWF as debt to chase up?  I'm also concerned about gaining a CCJ against my name without me knowing.


What should I do?  Keep ringing back until I get to speak to someone and if it relates to this incident do I give them the company details of whom I worked for/ ask them to write to me at my new personal address?

You will if you are acting in your employment at the time then I don't expect for a moment that there would be a CCG against you. It would be a claim against your employers and against their insurers.

Tell your employers that this has happened. Tell them in writing and frankly. Also you should probably write to the solicitors and give them your employers address and tell them that if they have anything to say or if they have any quotations or bills et cetera for repair work then they should send them to those employers. Even though you might ultimately have to put your hand in your pocket – there doesn't seem to be any reason to me why your name should be involved in this or why there should be any action against you – if you were employed at the time

Thanks BankFodder.  My boss is also my brother and have spoken to him again.  Said he'd rather settle this matter (if it does relate to this matter, without insurers) but he's not received anything.  He's happy for me to send them company details though, so have sent them a letter requesting what this matter relates to and to get in touch in writing.  I've also e-mailed them the same .

there on company business the it is the company's problem to deal with. If DWF get back in touch you TELL them this and tell them not to contact you again as there is no personal liability, you were merely an agent on company business at the time.
