    • Hello, Im here in regards to a vodafone account from 2015. No payments made on the said vodafone from August 2015 Default Date 12th Dec 2015 . was left sat there untill it dropped off my credit file & thought no more of it . it did eventually drop off my credit file . all done & dusted & had no need to worry about my credit file. as if Vodafone would have written i would have sent them the SB letter.   so fast foward to yesterday 13/06/24 logged in to see my credit file & Bam vodafone appears same amount , same dates only thing that is different is instead of saying default its now on there as Delinquent !!! now my understanding was once a default drops from a credit file it cant be put back on or am i wrong ? so moving forward how would i deal with this ?   any help and advice would be great thank .   BTW i know the default date as back in 2019 i printed my credit report off , on that said report that i fished out today it gives me the default date , status history & Balance history.

    • 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.

Needs the gaffer's to be prosecuted for various things, pushing prosecutions in full knowledgr Horizon was seriously borked, and unreliable is tantamount to Perverting The Course Of Justice, perjury might also be a charge, and also potential Conspiracy.  Of course it will be a whitewash and the guilty gaffer's slink off with their pensions and golden handshakes untouched.

We could do with some help from you.

Horizon's bosses should be held to account - they knew something was wrong !

 

The unique issue here is that the people accused were at the very centre of their local communities, probably known and trusted by all. What happened to them was utterly inexcuseable and resulted in them losing so much.

 

Heads should roll !!

At last, Senior Post Office officials belonga jail. The evidence used in many if not all the prosecutions of Postmaster's was perjerous, as they knew that Horizon was prima facie borked.

Think we would need to see the actual government papers. Senior officials means Civil Servants and not ministers.  When it says Tony Blair was briefed in 1998 about issues with the system, I suspect this was one item within his red box full of other items.

 

More information is needed before any conclusion of any political cover up by the Blair Government.

 

The Barrister is just saying that the Government were aware that since 1998 that the IT system was an issue. They want the Government to be on the hook to pay as much compensation as possible to those impacted by this scandal.

 

I know a local couple who were wrongly accused, had their post office closed down for over 6 months, while they were under investigation regarding their accounts.  Once there was a full audit of accounts they were cleared to re-open, but they were financially impacted, so eventually had to give up their current office. 

 

The cost of compensation will run into billions and take a long time.  Agree that the Post Office management who knew the truth but allowed prosecutions to happen on false basis, should face criminal investigation and hopefully Court trials.
