    • ok well next time never use email esp when entering into what seems like pointless letter tennis on your behalf.?when you had no real need to reply to them in any manner or form.   it only encourages them you are a mug and gives them a free way to intimidate and harass you by email.   get some kind of records from saas/slc on what they believe is your current status as they do still do the Adminmost of these loans .      
    • ignore ...yes its not a letter of claim from a solicitor with their client being the Uni. until/if you get one of those pop back here.   no-one can add anything to any debt ...so can't increase it.   nothing to do with 'credit' but yes ofcourse you can request and they will have to produce all paperwork inc how they dealt with your dispute if the time comes and they move to court.   redwood or harwood are good names to put in our search top right in the red banner.

    • Apologies I hadn't seen that uploads need to be in PDF.   I have received the attached letter from STA which I assume is a standard letter as I've never spoken to them on the phone. I'm not sure what they mean by 're-commence recovery action'? Do I just continue to ignore them?   I have been in contact with the Uni who insist I need to pay the fees as I left the course after the first three weeks. They have not provided any evidence/documents that I signed an agreement to pay the fees or that I acknowledged that fees would be due if the course was left early. They referred me to their website which undoubtedly has changed since I was there.    I appreciate I shouldn't reply to STA however I'm not sure how to proceed with this overall.   I've read the claim form page and I'm not clear if I can request a copy of a credit agreement from the Uni as I'm not sure if its standard for a University to have required a credit agreement to be signed?    I'm not really clear what happens next and at what point I need to act. I've read about lots of different cases (fee related and non fee related) but can't find information on a case that is similar to mine. Do I wait until the Uni begins a formal action? I am concerned as I don't want the amount to increase from the already significant amount they are demanding.     Many thanks for any help you can offer.  staletter.pdf

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

i can't believe the call ive just had from curry's,  i purchased a Tv from them March 2019  £1699  in November 2019 it developed a fault and stopped working so returned to them for repair , 4 weeks later tv was returned to me they had replaced mainboard, power supply board & screen everything was fine with the Tv for about 6 weeks then it stopped working again so 11 February they came to collect the tv again and  because it was an expensive tv i packed it safe & secure in the original box to go back to them, when  they collected it the driver took it to the van he took it out of the box and placed it on the floor of the van with two straps tightened over the screen without any protection then threw the box back in my garden.

 

I called customer service the same day and complained and told them if there were any damage to the screen i wasn't responsible, seven days later i had a call from curry's saying the tv was being returned to me un repaired because the engineer looking at it found a trace of adhesive on the motherboard inside the tv and believes its been tampered with ? so void of any repair, ive found out the   trace of adhesive has been found on the part they had previously replaced in November ?

 

Why would i want to tamper with the tv its still under the 12 month guarantee, if that wasn't bad enough the tv arrived back with me and there is a big dent in the side & deep scratch on the screen so i called customer service again  and the adviser told me the van driver had reported this damage was caused in transit when on the way to them for repair, so even though they have caused serious damage to it in transit conveniently they are saying because they found this trace of adhesive after they had already damaged it its void of any repair.

 

I would  really appreciate any advice regarding small claims court how to proceed, thanks Julie

Then do that as you will need proof that their fix is the one that they are using as an excuse to not do the second fix.

Send the letter by way of an SAR so that it is a statutory request for disclosure. This will put them under a legal duty to supply you with everything and make it more likely that you will get the information you need.

Be careful of dealing with Currys/PC World. They quibble at almost every step

Oh correct indeed... 

Also aswell maybe consider emailing the CEO? Where did you purchase the TV? (What Store)

That will depend on how awkward they want to be as they should accept an email if they are happy that the email  is yours so let them know that you expect the data to be sent to your permanent home address or to this email address if they dont want to send a paper copy

looks like small claims court is the only way forward, advice needed please, would you claim against the fact they are wrongfully accusing me of tampering and refusing to repair or the fact that when it was on the way back to them for repair it was damaged in transit a dent to the side & cracked screen reported by the driver, this serious  damage occurred before they even looked at the tv and allegedly found adhesive on the motherboard, any advise please

Have you sent them the SAR?

Do you still have the box which they threw in your garden?

That doesn't sound like an SAR and also I'm afraid that doing it that way creates no statutory duty.

You are probably going to find out with Currys that unless you are very very careful, you will lose control – and I would say that you are already losing control.

Send the SAR as I've suggested. It should have gone on Wednesday. Every day's delay will simply cause problems – particularly if you have to bring a legal action. You don't seem to realise that getting on the phone to them, part of what they do is to divert you and to distract you, to stop you getting control and eventually to tire you out. I'm not joking.

Send the SAR. Because you've delayed already, it won't be effective from at least Monday – Tuesday so that's a week lost.

 

Also of course because you been dealing with them on the telephone, you have no evidence of what has been agreed. Have you read our customer services guide? Do it now and implement the advice there. This is essential. Even when things are agreed on the telephone and you have got a recording of it, you should be following it up in writing to confirm.

sorry to be a pain but just one more thing, if this was to go all the way to court should i claim for the full cost of the tv £1699 or given it was 8 month old when developed the first fault would i be better claiming for a reduced amount

I would say they you would claim for the full amount and then step back to a lower amount if necessary. However we are not there yet. Send the SAR

                                  Requested the SAR, also a week ago i sent a detailed email to currys complaining about the way ive been accused also informing them i fully intend to take this to the small claims court,  yesterday i get a reply advising me to call customer service as they accept responsibility for damage in transit, i was reluctant to call because the 4 previous calls to them were a waste of time they insisted the engineers report regarding tampering was final and nothing could be changed, anyway yesterday morn i call  them and the guy i spoke to had a completely different attitude maybe something had been added to the case report? he was very understanding and apologized   he arranged to come and collect the tv back from me as they are fully responsible for full repair however he got the go ahead from his manager to recommend the tv to be wrote off by the repair team, so the tv's now back with them and im waiting for their response .  Thanks again for advice given by everyone.

anyway yesterday morn i call  them and the guy i spoke to had a completely different attitude

 

maybe something had been added to the case report?

he was very understanding and apologized  

he arranged to come and collect the tv back from me as they are fully responsible for full repair however he got the go ahead from his manager to recommend the tv to be wrote off by the repair team,

so the tv's now back with them and im waiting for their response . 

 

Thanks again for advice given by everyone.
