    • So there's no tax payable anyway.... nothing to see here!  
    • are you actually going to benefit out of this at all?   I was slightly getting confused here earlier, and forgot you said you are the claimant because you are suing the defendant for the cost of a hire car that you personally haven't had to pay for ?    
    • I received PCN's from TFL and Southwark. 08/06/19 I spoke with Southwark regarding PCN's and thought it was sorted.   Didn't hear anything back until 17/01/20 when my car was taken by Marston EA. TFL & Marston say they sent letters but have no proof.   I emailed TFL (19th June) through their online portal and again, via email on (14th Nov 2019) < the email on 14th has been viewed 17 times but no reply. (so I have proof of contact, they don't) I asked them if they send via recoded delivery/signed for but they do not.   When my car was taken, I received a call from a friend saying it's on the back of a truck, outside his house (which is round the block from mine). I ran round there and the EA was aggressive, shouted at me and refused to show ID/why he had taken my car.   I complained to Marston who denied it but sent me some of the footage. I complained again through resolver.co.uk and Marston lied again. Then I sent ALL my info and evidence etc.   took a few weeks and called me saying sorry and taking full responsibly for their EA's aggressive behaviour etc. TFL are still refusing to comment.   Marston offered me £250 as a goodwill payment but obviously the pain and trauma causes - that doesn't cover it. The police were called when they took my car cause I was so distressed and having a panic attack etc.   I've requested the phone call recording where they accepted guilt and that they had handled everything badly, including lying about the video on Resovler. I feel like Marston know they've done wrong, but TFL still aren't in the know. (to my knowledge)   Also, I requested info from TFL via whatdotheyknow.com and TFL did a data protection breach by uploading my full details including address etc. to a public forum (and I didn't even ask anything specific about my case) so I feel like they did this out of spite/anger.   the www.whatdotheyknow.com team reprimanded them for this and advised me to complain. I also paid £800+ to retrieve my vehicle and I have completed the OOT which was denied. I tried to take it to court but when I tried to do the 'low income' thing but they wanted bank statements which I couldn't get... then corona happened.   I've downloaded/uploaded the ZIP file from Resolver convos.   Regarding the footage: my initial message to them, I made myself seem unaware and 'stupid'   they wrote a generic reply telling me that 'the footage is fine and the EA did nothing wrong' they can't uphold my complaint,   then once they sent that; I sent them the CIVEA rulebook and timestamps in the video to show that they were in the wrong and had further lied in their official response (which must be illegal)   when they received the in-depth response, I think they got scared, went away for a couple weeks   tried to get the nice sounding woman to call me up, say sorry and be really nice then offer me a measly £250.   She also tried to rush me into agreeing.   
    • No it was about under by a couple grand.    Cheers

Hi all, just looking for a bit of advice on my options. 


I bought a six-camera CCTV system from Costco online (I am a member but they only had the model I wanted online) back in January for £799. Then a month later on February I bought a professional installation package again from Costco but fulfilled (IE subcontracted) to a company called TSG for a further £399.


Both transactions paid for on a credit card, Visa (Barclaycard) to be exact. 


The system was set up and installed perfectly and everything was working well until a couple of weeks ago when one of the cameras stopped working. I checked the cable and tried it in different ports on the recorder unit but no joy so it’s likely to be either the cable or the camera. Thankfully out of the six cameras it’s the least important one in terms of the portion of my property it’s covering, but that’s not the point obviously. 


Called TSG to see if I could get someone back to investigate and they were very helpful but said I needed to raise it via Costco first, and then they’d be happy to send someone over once instructed by Costco. 


Have been through three calls and one email so far with Costco and will spare you the long version but basically they’re saying they can’t fix or replace and the only option is to return the whole system for a full refund. 


I’m aware they’re allowed to do this, that’s not my question, what I’d like to know relates to the installation. I can’t really de-install the system myself, that’s why I paid for professional installation. Am waiting to hear back about what Costco suggest with regards to that but what are my rights with that piece? The whole thing seems ridiculous for what is probably a damaged RJ45 / Ethernet cable which. TSG engineer will have as standard on his van and could probably run afresh in 25 mins.

shame you paid fr the installation later as you would get that money back automatically as well.

have you spoken to the installation people and let them kmow that you are minded to do a chargeback under S75 of the CCA and no doubt that costco will be making a play to recover their losses from them? They might well have a spare camera and cable they can test in situ and then report back to Costco

Your contract was with costco so make them well aware you are going to recover all of your costs and if that includes paying soemone to take it all down then that will be part fo the bill.

I'm sure that someone higher up will make an executive decision to give you a partial refund ( cost of kit) and let you keep it as is. You need to find out who that person is who can make the decision, the CS people cant
