Apologies if I'm posting in wrong area here....perhaps someone in the know could advise/move me to right area!!?

 

Back in October, I (OK, Foolishly) responded on-line, and 'ordered' a Free VE Day paper re-print, agreeing to pay £2.50 postage cost.

I made no payment, nor supplied payment details.

Item did not arrive....and has not arrived to this date

 

Today received payment 'reminder' e-mail request for payment, and CO-INCIDENTALLY 😃 received totally unsolicited package from London Mint Office...this being an introduction to a naff coin collection...1st coin included.

 

Do I have any obligations here....can I ignore these communications, and demands for payment, which will most likely follow on??

 

Thanks for your patience!!

Topics merged and moved to Debt Collection Agencies Forum.....because that is what it is along with a scam...but hardly a General Legal Issue...unless you get a court claim within the next week or so.

you've joined a coin collecting club.

a subscription service which now roles on month on month, you simply didn't read the ad properly.

 

how did you pay the £2.50 by a debit card ?

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Found this in their Terms and Conditions':

4. The Company will aim to deliver all goods within 28 days of accepting your order. If we are unable to deliver within 28 days, you will be offered a revised delivery date or substituted goods or, alternatively, you have the right to cancel your order. If you exercise your right to cancel, a full refund for any prepaid goods will be provided.

 

Order was made 30/10.....then heard nothing from them until yesterday.

So...I've cancelled order....now hoping that'll be the end of it!

What do you think???

  You have paid nothing, received nothing, so I would say you can safely ignore any further communication from them.  If this was done online, I would look at one of their emails and see if you are able to unsubscribe from future communications.

UPDATE

LMO replied quite quickly...and initially 'tried it on' by claiming it was my responsibility to return items that had been sent to me!!

After a couple of short e-mails, account now closed, apology received, and it was indicated that I could keep the (evidently worthless) coin that had been sent to me.

 

Can't help but wonder how many (perhaps older) people have fallen for this nonsense in the past...and how many will continue to be duped in the future😠
