    • Hi all my wife has today been accused of shoplifting a few weeks ago at John Lewis. Police called today and said an allegation has been made after viewing cctv. My wife has been invited in for interview to clear things up (there words) I asked how her how they knew how to find her, she admitted she had been caught before in Waitrose in 2018 and banned from them and JL. I can’t begin to tell you how shocked I am but I need to support her and don’t know where to turn. She has confessed to me that she has stolen the odd thing over the past year from JL and is now worried that they will look back and charge here for stealing all the items. The police say the allegation is for two small items of clothing. My wife of 40yrs  I know like the back of my hand has been through hell and has lost all her family over the past few years, she has serious health issues and is on strong medication. I can only put this down to this being a big factor. I really need to know what to do to help her, if she admits,  will it be dealt with on the spot or will courts be involved. Should she seek immediate legal advice or see the solicitor at the police station(that’s what they have offered) Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks for reading and I hope it’s easy to understand 
    • Thank you. BTW, who paid Arval's administration fee? Arval - who seem to be total idiots - refer to what was received as a "parking fine" or "penalty charge notice" when it is neither, it is an invoice from a private company.
    • Hi guys, Bought BMW a couple of weeks ago. Advertised as FSH (I have a copy of the advert) Got home, set the Idrive up, alass, no service history, only pre delivery inspection. Car is a 2019 with 77,000 miles. When viewing, I was also told it has just had a full service. Been chasing the garage and been fobbed off last week. We will send it you, blah, blah.   Sent hem a shirty text today saying if they do not sort it, I would go to Trading Standards. They just called saying they will take the car back. Thing is, I really like it and I want to keep it. Would would be the best outcome here, do I ask for money back? Or is the only real option taking the car back? It will pain me as ive paid insurance, tax, had it coded as it was playing up a little, filled oil and AdBlue. Its not much, but its just perfect for me.   Thanks in advance all.

    • 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.

CEL ANPR PCN - POPLA unsuccessful -PAPLOC - Now Claimform - Morrisons, Butterfly Walk Car Park, London SE5 8RW - paid have receipt too! ***Claim Discontinued***


Recommended Posts

It is the same PCN number as the original PCNs issued back in 2021 when this first happened. 

Last time DBCL issued the Letter Before Claim and acted on behalf of CEL. 

Yesterday I have received a Letter Before Claim from CEL directly saying they will take me to court if I do not respond within 30 days. 

It is for the same case that was issued a N279. 

It is either an error on CEL side or they are just trying to still make me pay and hoping I do not live here anymore?

Thanks, will do. 

I was hoping to ignore them so they can waste their time but i guess it also wastes my time to go through the whole process again.

CEL are idiots, you'll be on a list of non-payers and they'll just automatically have sent out the LBC without bothering to check that the matter has already been dealt with by the courts.

It depends what you want to achieve.

1.  If you want to get rid of them do as dx says and also add a blistering letter warning them that'll you'll smash them for costs galore if they're so damn thick as to take the same matter to court twice. 

2.  If you want to annoy them and waste their time then ignore the LBC in the hope that they really will start a new court claim - that would lead to humiliation galore for them but also of course eat up your own spare time.

I have decided I will ignore them. I don't want to waste my time even responding to them. They can waste their time and money on getting the case to court again. 

I will respond to the court if it gets to that point. It shouldn't take much more of my time as I have all the evidence and writing saved on my laptop already and can just use it again and also i can let the court know that this case has already been discontinued. CEL can find out from the court that their case has been discontinued previously.  

It will be interesting to see what happens. Nothing might even happen, they may just be trying their luck. 

Will keep you posted

Bear in mind if they do issue a Claimform the AOS should put as defence the fact they have already been unsuccessful with this claimand provide the Notice Of Discontinuance at the opportune time.

My first inclination was that as the case had been discontinued, CEL should have destroyed your details bur I was wrong. Discontinuance does allow them to return to Court. As , I think, you had submitted a defence, that will mean the Court will have to approve their second claim. 

You  have the right to appeal to appeal against their second claim on the grounds of estoppel and abuse of process.

 A Discontinued Claim is regarded as never being adjudged. As a defence was submitted the claimant would require the courts permission to reissue on the same particulars.

Incorrect I'm afraid and a defence would be Res Judicata not estoppel on a previously struck out claim.

the court will need to give them permission to take me to court again? 

This is ridiculous. 

I do not want to waste too much time on this but I will keep an eye on the court letters. 

I will keep this thread posted. 

Thank you everyone.

well no.

it would be the same process, they simply write to northants bulk requesting they raise a claim.

and you'd get a claimform like at the start here.

very very remote speculation that would ever happen

Andy thank you for correcting me and thank you again for posting the Court Procedure rules.

It makes interesting reading- 38.4 (1) Where the claimant discontinues under rule 38.2(1) the defendant may apply to have the notice of discontinuance set aside(GL).

(2) The defendant may not make an application under this rule more than 28 days after the date when the notice of discontinuance was served on them.

Was the delay in sending the Discontinuance notice deliberately held up to prevent Annabooo  from asking for a set aside.? It was well over the 28 days after the Discontinuance notice was received. I know that the 28 days applies after the Notice was served but could that be part of a reason to refuse CEL permission . I assume they haven't paid the Court  fee to initiate  proceedings again ?

 

38.7 [3]  3) The defendant shall inform the court in writing as soon as practicable whether the defendant asserts that permission is needed and, if so, whether the defendant consents to permission being granted.

Has Annaboo been informed that she has the right to refuse consent ? Does she even have the right to refuse consent in this instance.

I am assuming that Annaboo would prefer to refuse this resurrection on many grounds not only because she does have the right to enjoy a peaceful life.

Yes I would like a peaceful life without the feeling that the claimant can threaten me when they want and discontinued the claim whenever they want and this goes on and on. 

This is all so confusing. 

Let's see what happens. CEL might just be trying their luck and nothing happens.
