    • Just the phone call and fear of the kids being involved and it upsetting them.  Sadly I have remembered I went over my miles as this latest car took ages to get here (we get them brand new) so I kept my pld one a yr longer so it was mileage over my what I had been allocated that they were deducting. I need to Get exactly what the payments were for I haven't answered the bailiffs through paper means it was purely done through returning a phone call and a quick google.  I have no recollection of a pcn on the car, if there had of been It would of been a reminder to pay it but this was the last week of my mums life. Things were stressful so as iv said, I don't remember getting one. I appreciate everything you lot do and have a fantastic union guy so will get him on board 🏴‍☠️
    • Can I ask why is it when I go to set up payment that the bank refuses to credit that person unless the name matches the account but in this case they didn’t take that into account? How is it that the traders bank will not disclose the name even to my bank when there is a court order against him? And finally, I can’t locate a form that is for requesting a variation. Besides I thought the name change would mean it couldn’t be served? In company’s house there’s never been one where the car dealership name matched the address.
    • Thanks for the link. Unfortunately I bought crossed PO's. The last time I bought a PO you had to draw two lines and write & co. Also I signed the letters, a throwback to years in an office many years ago.
    • which is why our CCA request link says so. read all the posts! csl credit security limited are part of the arrows group as are  Ar**ho** Kleaners all the same blokes... just different skirts on  if you'd been reading up you'd already know arrows always return the £1 po. dx    
    • One of the CCA's is now with PRA Group, as far as I can make out it started with CSL, then went to Aktiv Kapital, then I got a letter from CSL and now it seems that it's back with PRA. In addition PRA Group ltd recently transferred the account to PRA Group UK Portfolios ltd. This is the company that sent back the £1.00 PO saying that they don't charge a fee for supplying acct details. Also I read online that it's not a good idea to sign the CCA request as this gives them a copy of my signature.

    • 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.

We bought our two sons a high sleeper bed each, costing £600 we built them as per the instructions and all bolts were present and correct.


3 weeks ago i emailed Argos to make them aware that the beds have started to become us sturdy when the kids are in them Argos agreed to send a 3rd party out called Castleton.


So he turned up at 8:30am checked out the bed took photos of the beds and also agreed both beds were unsteady and not safe also the foot board which is joined to the bottom of the bed has snapped on the side when my 6 year old used it as a support to get into his bed this happened a few days ago


The guy from castleton agreed the beds were built correctly and all bolts were present and tight.


As he walked away he gave us the impression that this would go into our favour and Argos would exchange or refund the beds.


We purchased these on the Argos store card and have 150 left to pay on them.


I am so angry and annoyed seems argos doesn’t care.


Do we have any rights here as now my son is sleeping on his mattress due to the damaged bed.

My site team colleague asked you what date you purchased them.

You replied that you bought them in May – but that isn't a date.

My site team colleagues question is important because we want to know whether you bought them within the last six months.

Please can you address the question

Still not really a date is it – "the middle of…"

Anyway, it helps me to figure that you still may be within your six-month deadline.

In that case you should write them immediately – by email if you want but by a recorded delivery letter which references the email and put them on notice that you are asserting your rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and that the item that you bought is defective and you are giving them a single opportunity to repair and that if they decline to repair or if the repair fails then you want a refund or a replacement at your own option.

Get the letter off straight away and come back here and confirm that it's done.

It would be helpful in future if you would respond to our questions precisely.

Thank you

They emailed me today with their response 




We have received your letter into the Argos Executive Office in regards to your home delivery order “”


As your case manager, your complaint has been passed back to myself to respond to.


Your complaint has reached the highest point of escalation and we do not hold a further process.


I understand your frustration relating to the faulty items and I am so sorry for the inconvenience caused to you and your family however, I can only reiterate my previous correspondence.


Should you dispute our findings, you are well within your rights to obtain your own independent report from a qualified professional detailing the cause and nature of the fault, if this shows a manufacturing defect we will look to a replacement or collection and refund.


Once again, I am so sorry for this. If you need any assistance in the future, please don’t hesitate to contact me

Send an SAR to Argos and also an SAR to Castleton. Get them off tomorrow.

Have you got photographs of the defects and of the broken part? Is it all fully documented?

You're going to have to issue a letter of claim and then issue a small claim in the County Court.

It will take up to 30 days to get the data that you need from Castleton and from Argos. I'm assuming that you don't have any other evidence that the inspector from Castleton agree that there was a fault. Is that correct?

You can either send a letter of claim immediately – but my preference would be to send the SAR and then send a letter of claim was you had the evidence although that would mean a 30 day delay.

Of course it may be that the evidence is not forthcoming because they find some way to delay you or to refuse you – but we would have to deal with that when it comes to it.

I don't understand why the SAR link shouldn't work – subject access request

just a side issue...


did your hubby use the supplied tools to put the bed together or a battery driven screwdriver?
