    • 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.    
    • So it is...... ...but has yet to be determined by a Judge...who would no doubt decide that  Bailey had the use of the vehicle  during the term of the agreement and therefore benefited.   Too risky....I would be happy with this result and leave it at that.

Placed a holding fee on a vehicle

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

I placed holding fee on a car to enable me to raise the finance for it,

 

when I gave my holding fee they also gave me the portion of the V5C which I have to send to the DVLA

 

 haven't raised the cash yet because I have questions that I wanted to ask about the car which are very important mechanical questions,

 

I have called over this week and sent texts and e mails all have been ignored ......

how am I supposed to pick up the car if I cant contact anyone???

im 200 miles from the dealer

 

Its the V5C portion that I have that Im curious about

is this some sort of ruse or [problem]

 

 

 

Many thanks for your help

Maybe a new one to me.

Did you see the car "live", or just in pictures?

Did you check that that the vin on v5c matched the number plate?

Problem i can see is that the vehicle doesn't exist or, you'll be chasing a ghost for the holding fee while holding a piece of a v5c.

Hi King

 

Yes drove the car and I was going to pick the car up today, but I have heard nothing back from my phone calls, texts, emails etc etc

 

But its weird, the vehicle exists because I have driven it, why on earth would the give me the new owners portion of the V5C to send off, there are serious mechanical questions I need addressing before I have any involvement with the car, I also need to make sure the repairs have been carried out that were shown on the MOT, which mysteriously 10miles later, and two days later were fixed.....which raises another concern of a fake MOT certificate possibly

 

So I have waited a week for a reply, and Im assuming here that I won't be entitled to my money back, it does say that on the holding form, however how do I stand given all the attempts to contact the dealer............which is Cleckheaton Motor Sales.

 

 

Kind Regards

they have done this to make you legally responsible for the purchase of the vehicle. You paid a deposit and took ownership of the vehicle via the V5. now you owe them the balance whether you decide  to buy the car or not, if there is a problem then theoretically you have to fight them after paying up.

i hope you have insured and taxed it so when they park it on DYL's you dotn get clobbered for the extra offences as well.

 

In reality it is just a pressure sales technique as if there are mechanical propblems you are covered by the CRA anyway.

This is worrying

 

I didn't sign anything other than the holding fee, didn't sign any V5 or anything
