    • 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!

Lowell claimform - old Mobile Debt - Missed Defence date now judgement- Can I Do Anything


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Looking for some advice - Lowell claimed against me for old mobile debt - I stupidly thought that I had 33 days after Acknowledgment, as you know this is not right - after recovering from Covid I thought I start my defence today only to read that I might be too late I've just checked on line to find the below - is there anything I can do?

 

Kind regards

 

Lushni

Can i appeal this judgment or do I have to pay up - so many added charges on this account - it don't seem fair.

tell us about the debt

i will guess as with all these mobile debt claims here, i was remaining months until end of contract on a service you didn't or couldn't use.

typically once our defence here is filled lowells run away at some point just before the hearing.

i'm not sure we've tried to set one of these aside to date

Hi DX thanks for getting back

- the original bill came in at around £130

- it was my sons phone but in my name

- it was a £13 a month contract

- he went to the USA for around six weeks,

- he crossed the border at the falls into Canada for two days -

 

When he got back he found out that the calls in Canada were not part of 3's roaming

- he got the bill and asked 3 why he got charged so much

-  put in a complaint

 

- however a few weeks later they said full amount had to be paid

- he couldn't pay

- they cut off his phone still had over a year to run his contract down

- so added almost £200 charges that he could use

 

– To be honest he should have just paid up when he got the bill but his job fell through when he got back and he didn’t tell me at the time

– we both have the same name, so I just passed on all 3’s post to him without opening it.

 

Again many thanks, Lushni

so £130 of what could be deemed as unfair roaming charges

the rest is 

4 minutes ago, lushni said:

the above doesn't make sense.

i will gather these might be the monthly fee until end of contract?

but as usual, they cut him off so they weren't proving a service a usable service anyway.

 

had you researched here already and seen our mobile defence and were going to us that?

might be wise to send 3 an SAR.

Yes DX your right they cut him off and charged for the rest of the contract even though he couldn't use it.

 

Yes I was going to submit a defence (one from this site) TBH I thought I had 33 days from the 4th of Jan and not the 17th of Dec - I really could kick myself. I'd have done it earlier as well but I've be poorly recently with this dam Covid (at least I've had it now).

HI Guys, sorry to ask again but is there anyway I can appeal against this or is all lost?

 

Many thanks

By appeal you mean set a side...the application fee would be £255 with a hearing (unless your exempt from fees )so you need to ask yourself ....would it be worthwhile..or better use the fee to pay off the judgment before its registered ? 

 

The court wont accept your mistake and show any leniency.

 

Lesson learned for the future...19 days to AOS and a further 14 days to submit a defence = 33 days in total. 

 

Sorry 

 

Andy
