    • Hi,   I sent the email to both my local councillor and the leader of my local council yesterday evening. I didn't receive an acknowledgement email. Do you know if I should have, as I know that if you ever email an MP you always receive a acknowledgement email?   Walshy
    • Can I ask how your taking him to court with just his a trade name ?  Yes I notice hes still trading on ebay.   
    • Very good finds indeed which help to undermine their case.. And to strengthen your case take a look  look at a thread by Tom Price also at Southend airport which is several threads below yours and you will see that he won his case on the fact that he was stopped rather than parked. On top of that he had the Airports Act  1986 to quote. The relevant section is no 63 " Byelaws are covered at S.63  (2)Any such byelaws may, in particular, include byelaws— (d)for regulating vehicular traffic anywhere within the airport, except on roads within the airport to which the road traffic enactments apply, and in particular (with that exception) for imposing speed limits on vehicles within the airport and for restricting or regulating the parking of vehicles or their use for any purpose or in any manner specified in the byelaws;" That confirms that the roads at the airport are either covered by the Road Traffic Act or Byelaws neither of which is relevant land therefore  PoFA cannot apply. And  VCS should be aware of that. Another thing is that when you posted their WS you didn't include their contract which I missed at the time. However Tom Price included it in his. And guess what-the  alleged offence they are pursuing you for, No Stopping, is not included in their contract. If you look at the end of their Service Agreement [aka contract] you will a list of contravention on Scedule 1 [7] (46) PARKING/WAITING ON A ROADWAY WHERE STOPPING IS PROHIBITTED That is the nearest to what you did. But you were not parking nor waiting -you were stopped so there was no reason to issue you with a PCN as you never broke any of their contraventions. Looks like they breached your GDPR and you should include that as it carries a hefty charge £750 is not unheard of.   Have a read of his WS too which may give you further ideas even possibly to rebut some of the points VCS  make.

    • 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!

Recommended Posts


I’m having horrible time with NatWest bank applied for a feeder account for the bbl thankful hit accepted

I only started trading last September so had to give them unaudited accounts and a back up letter from my accountant.


Had an email confirming my new account details Friday.

Had another email to apply for the bbl as I now have the feeder account which is opened purely for the loan .


applied for the loan had an email they're doing further checks over the weekend an attachment was put in the email saying accepted.

rang the bank this morning spoke to them twice was told the money would be in the bank by Friday great!.


5 minutes later had an email saying they cancelled the application as I was not trading before 1st March this year .

I have bank accounts and invoices to prove that I was also an accountant document this is horrendous time for myself I have raised a complaint and refuse to be brushed aside

Welcome to the forum.

I'm terribly sorry, but with the best will in the world it's not possible to understand what you are telling us.

Your post is in an unbroken block of text and also it seems to me that it is not punctuated so that the sentences are running into each other.

I appreciate that you are using a telephone – but please will you repost – use the paragraph return and also please punctuate the sentences so that it is intelligible to us. Then we will probably be able to give you some support.

Hi many apologies,

I am having a problem with NatWest bank . I have been trying to access a bounce back loan sinse may . 
I applied for a buisiness account but was told I needed a feeder account for the bbl.

I passed all credit checks to open the feeder account  and was invited to apply for the bounce back loan.

I had a reply to say there are doing further checks then had an attachment saying application accepted.

I rang the bank this morning to see what was the next stage I was told by two different members off staff it had been accepted and would receive funds by Friday.

I had an email then saying I had been turned down as I wasn’t trading before March of this year which is complete nonsense as I had to prove this to open the feeder account . I have filed a complaint but am looking for help

I'm not too sure a bounceback loan is – but as you have already made a complaint to the bank, I think that you should wait and see what they say and then come back here and tell us.

It's highly likely that they will knock you back – because that's what they tend to do. However you need at least to have established a paper trail of complaint and rejection of that complaint before we can move on to any next step.
