    • Thank you very much for your letter in regard to the above mentioned shipment.  Due to the high volume of parcels coursing through the courier network each day, undergoing continuous processing and handling, certain packages may experience delays or even can get lost in the course of this journey. Please note that due to the time that has passed, this shipment has been declared as lost.  I have today processed the claim and made offers to the value of £75 as a goodwill gesture without prejudice. I do acknowledge that you have mentioned in your letter that the value was higher, however, you did not take out any protection to that amount. The protection for this shipment was £20 and we will not be increasing our goodwill offer any further.    Please log into your account online in order to accept our offer. Once accepted, our accounts department will process the claim accordingly. The claim payment will be processed and received within 7 working days.                                  In addition, a refund of the carriage fee will be processed as a separate payment and will be received within 3 working days.  If I can further assist, please feel free to contact me.   I have also just noticed that yesterday afternoon they sent me an email stating that "after my request" they have refunded the cost of shipping. I did not request the refund so will mention that in my letter as well.
    • Hi I had to leave Dubai back in 2011, during the financial crisis. And only now have I received a letter from IDRWW. Is this anything to worry about about as I have 2 years left until it’s been 15 years(statute barred in Dubai). Worried as just got a mortgage 2 years ago. Could they force me in to bankruptcy? Red lots of different threads on here. And unsure what true and what isn’t. 
    • Not that TOR will see this now he's thrown in the hand grenade. Rayner has plenty of female supporters on X, for a start. As for the council and HMRC, fair enough and I thought Rayner was already in touch with them.

    • Often with the Likes of Lowells/ Overdales that 'proof' doesn't stand up to scrutiny.   Think about it like a game of poker, they want to intimidate you into folding and giving up as soon as possible, and just get you to pay up and roll over, that is their business model, make you think your cards are rubbish. What they don't expect, and their business isn't set up for it, is for a defendant to find this place and to learn that they have an amazing set of cards to play. Overdales don't have an infinite number of lawyers, paralegals etc, and the time / money to spend on expensive court cases, that they are highly likely to lose, hence how hard they will try to get you to roll over.  Even to the extent of faking documents, which they need to do because the debts that they purchased were so cheap, in the first place. Nevertheless it works in most cases, most people chicken out, when they are so close to winning, and a holding defence is like slowly showing Overdales your first card, and a marker of intention that this could get tricky for them. In fact it may be,  although by no means guaranteed that it won't even go any further than that.  Even if it does, what they send you back will almost certainly have more holes than Swiss Cheese, and if with the help you receive here, you can identify those weaknesses and get the whole thing tossed in the bin.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hi folks,  I wonder if you can help.

 

I received a NIP.

I remember the day in question as it was very windy And I was returning from the coast with my friends children.

I am very sure I was not speeding.  

 

NiP did not give the option to view video or stills evidence with their paperwork.

I phoned to ask where I can view it and they told me that they had the evidence but that I could only view it if I went to court.

I said that can’t be fair re pre action protocol,

fair on me to allow me time to consider the evidence or good use of tax payers money.

 

They said that’s their policy now and so I asked them to put that in writing.

It would seem I will have to go to court to view the evidence then ask for another date to allow me consideration time .....

 

your thoughts people?

which pre-action protocol are you referring to? Often PAP is used relating to civil claims, and this is a criminal matter (either you accept a PCN if that is what they are offering, or it goes to a Magistrates Court as a criminal, not case).

 

There are Criminal Procedure Rules and Practice Directions (usually called Crim PR to distinguish them from the [Civil] CPR), but they don't include 'pre-action protocol', which is civil.

Case progression and trial preparation in magistrates’ courts
3A.4
CrimPR 8.3 applies in all cases and requires the prosecutor to serve:
i.a summary of the circumstances of the offence;
ii.any account given by the defendant in interview, whether contained in that summary or in another document;
iii.any written witness statement or exhibit that the prosecutor then has available and considers material to plea or to the allocation of the case for trial or sentence;
iv.a list of the defendant’s criminal record, if any; and
v.any available statement of the effect of the offence on a victim, a victim’s family or others.

The details must include sufficient information to allow the defendant and the court at the first hearing to take an informed view:
i.on plea;
ii.on venue for trial (if applicable);
 iii.for the purposes of case management; or
iv.for the purposes of sentencing (including committal for sentence, if applicable).

I'd agree with the info the court has given you: The prosecution doesn't HAVE to provide you with the evidence prior to court.

That doesn't mean you can't ask, and they MIGHT, but don't HAVE to provide it until court.

 

Whatever you do, don't miss out on identifying the driver if you have been served a S.172 notice to furnish driver details ; that would be a separate offence by the keeper (6 points and a fine, on its own), and "I was waiting for a reply" wouldn't constitute  a defence.

It's straightforward enough as Bazza has outlined.

At present you are being asked to identify the driver. You have an obligation to do this and it does not depend on any evidence being available to support the underlying speeding offence. Failure to comply will mean a visit to court and, if convicted, a hefty fine, six points and an endorsement code that insurers hate.

As far as the speeding matter goes, once the driver has been identified he should be offered a speed awareness course for that speed (provided the offence did not occur in Scotland and the driver has not done a course for an offence within three years of this one). The alternative is a Fixed Penalty (£100 and 3 points).

No evidence will be provided before either of these is accepted.

You either accept the allegation as it stands or not. If you do not the matter will be dealt with in court and only then does evidence need to be provided in order for you to enter a plea and the Criminal Procedure rules come into play. That evidence will almost certainly consist of statements to say that your vehicle was caught speeding by an approved device operated in the correct manner.

If you dispute this the burden shifts to you to prove that one or other of those is not so. You will need expert assistance to do this and even then it is very difficult. Simply turning up and saying "I am very sure I was not speeding" will not do. The cost of failure is high - you will pay an income-related fine of half a week's net income, a surcharge of 10% of the fine and prosecution costs which will start at £620 but may be more if the prosecution is forced to enlist expert evidence to counter your defence.

In most areas you can ask for "photographs to assist in identifying the driver" (obviously before you do so). They usually provide you with a website link. They do not have to do this and the photographs rarely help in either identifying the driver of supporting the speeding allegation (their purpose is to identify the vehicle). Such a request does also not stop the clock on the 28 days you have in which to reply.

Hi Folks,

Thank you for your help and advice.  I notified them that I was the driver immediately. 
 

I will probably just pay the fine and have the points (I had a speed awareness course 2-3 years ago) 

 

It really doesn’t seem fair or right though that they have the evidence yet won’t provide it unless I go to court and risk paying larger amounts.  
 

Thanks again for your help 👍👍

Mmmm not one hundred percent sure! 
 

I remember it was very very windy. I remember seeing the speed van and checking my speed and then thinking is it a dual carriage way and 50 mph in which case I am guilty!!! 
 

They are claiming I was doing 81 in a 70  in which case I would have thought I was guilty regardless and this is why I wanted to see the evidence.  

 

They have since written to me as requested and confirmed that they will not show the evidence unless i take the risk of going to court 😳

i was doing 76 on the motorway.

The limit had been reduced from 70 to 50

 

therefore was over by 26

 

pleaded guilty and asked for court hearing

 

got fined and 6PP 

 

going to the court to defend myself did not help whatsoever, so now I have accepted the fine and moved on

 

I did post my case here and had lots of useful advice esp from Man in The Middle and Bazza
