    • be very wary upon what you see being recently posted on here 😎 regarding KIH.... all is not what it seems...  
    • 1st - all my posts on CAG are made not only in reply to the specific issue the topic starter makes but also in a general matter to advise any future readers upon the related subject - here it is kings interhigh online school. KIH lets take this topic apart shall we so readers know the real situation and the real truth...and underline the correct way to deal with KIH. https://tinyurl.com/ycxb4fk7 Kings Interhigh Online School issues - Training and Apprenticeships - Consumer Action Group - but did not ever reply to the last post.  but the user then went around every existing topic here on CAG about KIH pointing to the above topic and the 'want' to make some form of group  promoting some  'class action' against KIH . then on the 2nd march this very topic this msg is in was created. all remarkably similar eh? all appear to be or state..they are in spain... ....as well as the earlier post flaunting their linkedin ID, (same profile picture) that might have slipped through via email before our admin killed it.., trying to give some kind of legitimacy to their 'credentials' of being 'an honest poster'....oh and some kind of 'zen' website using a .co.uk  address (when in spain- bit like the Chinese ebay sallers) they run ... and now we get the father of the bride ...no sorry...father of a child at the uk-based international school in question posting ...pretending to be not the 'other alf... do you really think people are that stupid..... ................... nope you never owed that in the 1st place... wake up you got had and grabbed the phone - oh no they are taking me to court under UK jurisdiction...and fell for every trick in the book that they would never ever put in writing that could be placed in front of a court operating under their stated uk jurisdiction wherever you live. T&C's are always challengeable under UK law this very site would not exist if it were not for the +£Bn's bank charges reclaiming from 2006> and latterly the +£Bn's of PPI reclaiming both directly stated in the banks' T&C's were they claimed they were legally enforceable ...not!! they lost big time... why? a waste of more money if you've not got a court claim....... why not use them for a good outcome...go reclaim that £1000 refundable deposit you got scammed out of . people please research very carefully ...you never know who any of these people are that are posting about kings interhigh and their 'stories' they could even be one of their online tutors or a shill . don't get taken in. dx      
    • @KingsParent thank you for sharing your experience.  I also tried contacting the CEO but didn’t get very far. Do you mind sharing his contact details?  kind regards   
    • Thank you Rocky for the clarifications though they did cause a problem at first since an original windsccreen ticket was  of a different breach some time before. The current windscreen ticket only states that you were parked there for 6 minutes which is just one minute over the minimum time allowed as the Consideration period. There is no further proof that you parked there for any longer than that is there? More photographs for example? Moving on to the Notice to Keeper-it does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4. First there is no parking period mentioned on it. there is the time 20.25 stated which coincides with the W/S ticket but a parking period must have a starting and finishing time-just one time is insufficient to qualify as a parking  period as required in Section 9 [2] [a] . Are there any different photos shown on the NTK comapared to the w/s PCN? Not that that would make a difference as far as PoFA goes since the times required by PoFA should be on the NTK but at the moment Met only appear to show that you stayed there for 6 minutes. Another failure to comply with PoFA is at S9([2][e] where their wording should be "the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; ". You can see on your NTK that they misssed off the words in brackets. Met cannot therefore transfer the charge from the driver to the keeper. Only the driver is now liable. Then their is the discrepancy with the post code on the NTK  HA4 0EY which differs from the post code on the contract and the Post Office Postcode Finder which both list it as HA4 0FY. As you were not parked in HA4 0EY the breach did not occur. In the same way as if you were caught speeding in the Mall in London, yet you were charged with speeding in Pall mall London [a street nearby] you would be found not guilty since though you were speeding you were not speeding in Pall Mall. I bow to Eric's brother on his reasoning on post 12 re the electric bay abuse  That wording is not listed on their signs nor is there any mention on the contract of any electric charging points at all let alone who can park there or use them. He is quite right too that the entrance sign is merely an invitaion to treat it cannot form a contrct with motorists. Also the contract looks extremely  short no doubt there will be more when we see the full Witness statement. As it stands there is no confirmation from Standard Life [or Lift !] on the contract that Savills are able to act on their behalf. Also most contracts are signed at the end of the contract to prevent either side adding extra points. So their percentage  chance of winning their case would be somewhere between 0.01 and 0.02.

    • 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.

Mass identity fraud using www.akvehicle.com - - TfL penalties/PCNs Hire Vehicles not mine but in my name whilst abroad - now bailiffs - help!!


Recommended Posts

I have received various enforcement notices relating to penalty charges for vehicles that do not relate to me. I have never had any connection (i.e. owned, rented, driven etc.) with any vehicle in the UK.

 

I think that the original penalty charges were sent to my old address and as I moved out of the country for a period of time I did not receive them. The only notices that I have actually received are enforcement notices delivered to my current address.

 

I challenged one of these via a TE7/TE9 form but my application was refused and so I had to pay £275 to go to court to contest the charge. I am yet to be given a court date. However, 8 more enforcement notices have come through my door and I am concerned that there are a significant number of fines in my name.

 

As soon as I received the first enforcement notice, I opened a case at Action Fraud and I have also given my details to Cifas but this isn't helping me currently. I've tried speaking to Transport for London but they haven't been helpful as they just say we aren't dealing with this now as the cases have been passed onto TEC and we can't assist with charges you suspect may have been occurred but don't have a penalty charge number for?

 

I've also tried sending letters to the DVLA but their response time is over a month and I have to action the enforcement notices quickly. 

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Can you tell us who are sending you this enforcement notices?

I suggest that you check your credit file to make sure that it hasn't been affected by some other transaction of which you are not aware.

You say that you've paid £275 to go to court to contest the charge. I'm a bit mystified about this. Of course I may not be familiar with all of the latest procedures but I don't understand why you have apparently been accused of something and you have to pay £275 to be allowed to go and defend yourself.

I suppose I don't really understand your story

Thank you for your response.

 

Marston Recoveries sent the first enforcement notice (this is the case I am going to court over) and CDER Group have sent the rest. I had to pay to go to court because my initial out of time application (TE7 + TE9 forms) got rejected (no reasons were provided) and to appeal you have to pay a court fee. 

 

So far, my credit score appears to be unaffected.

Who are Marston acting on behalf of? In other words who is the creditor?

You say that you have received notices in respect of a number of vehicles – how many?

Share on other sites

Marston are acting on behalf of Redbridge Council (via TEC) and CDER Group is acting on behalf of Transport for London (again via TEC). However, when I try to speak to Redbridge Council/TFL, I just get told that my cases are now with the TEC so they can't do anything. 

 

So far I have received notices in respect of 2 different vehicles - 2 notices (one from Marston and one from CDER Group) in respect of 1 vehicle and 7 notices (all from CDER Group) in respect of another.

Yes essentially. I realise that is the case but I am not sure how to deal with it. I've tried to contact everyone I can think off involved but no one is assisting.

And what are the dates that the various enforcement notices refer to? Please give them in relation to vehicle one vehicle two?

 

Vehicle 1

 

Enforcement notice 1 - Enforcement agent: Marston - Contravention Date: March 2021 - Date of enforcement notice: October 2021 - Action taken: Submitted a form to submit an out of time application. Redbridge council opposed and the application was rejected so I have appealed (cost £275).

 

Enforcement notice 2 - Enforcement agent: CDER - Contravention Date: March 2021 - Date of enforcement notice: 21 December 2021. Creditor: TfL

 

Vehicle 2

 

7 enforcement notices from CDER Group, all with contravention dates in March and April 2021. The date of each enforcement notice is 22 November 2021.

 

The notice advised that I contact CDER if I believed that the fines were not related to me so I contacted them as soon as I received the notices and they said to obtain a letter from the DVLA saying that the vehicle in question does not relate to me.

 

I sent a letter to the DVLA (only way to speak to them on such an issue) and am awaiting a response (they are being quite slow) but now CDER are saying that I will run out of time on 12 January and they won't put my case on hold any further.

 

The creditor is TfL in each case.

just type no need to keep hitting quote.

 

you need to file SD's via the correct forms for each one.

 

this has come about because you did not update people you had had credit with when you went abroad and the mailings they send out to your old address enabled scammers to have enough information/docs to be able to convince authorities they were you.

 

explain more about this court case with a magistrate? and where and this fee you've had to pay

 

can we confirm please WHAT the CDER notices are for we know TfL but not if they are congestion zone charges or tunnel charges not paid by a vehicle V5C registered in your name.

Ok apologies. I am new to the forum so just figuring it out. 

 

Mailings weren't sent to my old address from creditors etc as my statements are all paperless. 

 

Regarding the court case: my out of time application was rejected so I submitted an N244 form to appeal. This costs £275 and means that I will get a court hearing for the appeal. I haven't been told when the hearing will take place. 

 

The 7 CDER notices relating to vehicle 2 are for congestion charges and the CDER notice for vehicle 1 is for a red route contravention. 

 

I can submit SDs for these but my fears are that the SDs will be rejected like my previous out of time application and that there could be hundreds of fines in my name.

In no post have you stated whether or not you recognise the VIN to which these orders refer. Also it would help if you could confirm if you were/were not in the UK in March 2021 when these alleged contraventions occurred?

I don't recognise the VINs. I have no connection with the vehicles at all and don't know who they belong too.

 

I left the UK on 26 February and so far, all the notices I have received have contravention dates in March and April so I was not even in the UK at the time of the offences.

 

Just to add to the above, I have a letter from my employer stating that I was working abroad from 28 February 2021 till 26 August 2021 on an international assignment and a passport stamp dated 27 February showing that I entered the country I moved to work on that date, which can evidence that I was not in the UK at the time of the contravention s that I have received enforcement notices for so far.

  • dx100uk changed the title to Mass identity fraud - TfL penalties/PCNs vehicles not mine but in my name whilst abroad - now bailiffs - help!!

then each one should be totally reset, and with out of country evidence, be quashed.

 

esp as you've never had any UK registered vehicles.

 

the old address and known issues such and ID fraud should be well known to both Redbridge and TfL.

 

you say you 've done relevant TE2/3 and TE7/9 for ALL known tickets/penalties (each one) as well as evidence of OOC status.

 

there was another case of this here not too long ago i'm sure ..i'll have to find it.

I am confused as to why you had paid a fee of £275 to have a 'review' of the rejection of an Out of Time Application. In the past two years since Covid 19, I don't know of any motorist who has decided to seek a review by way of a PERSONAL hearing in court. The correct procedure would have been for you to seek a 'review' 'Without a Hearing', the fee would have been significantly less and you would have received a response within a few weeks. 

 

Second point:

In relation to the tickets for TfL unpaid congestion charge fees, you have the PCN numbers (which would start with TZ and be followed by 8 numbers). You also have the vehicle registration number. Have you viewed the actual contraventions on the TfL website in order to ascertain the make and model etc of the actual vehicle itself? 

 

I am making separate posts so as not to confuse matters. 

I have just read your initial post a 2nd time. You mention that you have tried speaking with TfL but that they cannot assist you as you do not have the PCN numbers. Is that still the case?

 

If so, have you called CDER Group to request the PCN numbers? They MUST provide this information to you!!

 

As you clearly have the vehicle registration number, then surely TfL should have been able to let you know whether or not there are any further penalties outstanding against this vehicle registration mark (VRM).

I paid £275 because the fee for the charge that the bailiff has requested is in excess of 1.5k and my initial application was rejected.

 

An explanation of my case on paper didn't do the trick with the initial application, I fail to see why it would do the trick with the appeal and if the appeal is rejected, I will have to pay the massive fine (+ charge).

 

An appeal without a court hearing is £108, I thought it made sense to pay a little extra and be able to make my case in person to ensure that the fine was squashed. 

 

I do have the PCN numbers and the vehicle registration number.

I have researched the car info and know the make and model but I'm not sure how this really helps me?

 

The two vehicles in question are different vehicles.

Having the PCN numbers would allow you to be able to file Out of Time STATUTORY DECLARATIONS (not witness statements). You would need the forms PE2 and PE3 (not forms TE7 and TE9). However, there is absolutely no reason for submitting these appeals at this moment in time. 

 

Whilst it is helpful that you have a letter from your employer confirming that you had been overseas between the period of 28th Feb to 6th August, this will merely give you grounds in which to file Stat Dec's (on the basis that you were not in the Country at the time that the Penalty Charge Notice had been issued). This will NOT be sufficient to get the penalties cancelled. 

 

The reason being that according to Transport for London you are the registered keeper of a vehicle that had entered the TfL congestion charging zone without making payment of the daily fee. It is not the responsibility of the driver to make payment....it is the registered keeper. Until evidence is provided otherwise, you may have been out of the country but had allowed a friend/relative etc to have the day to day use of the vehicle. It is precisely for this reason that any Out of Time Application must wait until such time as you have received a letter from DVLA confirming that your name and address have been removed from their records as having any association with this vehicle.

Thanks. I am trying to obtain a letter from the DVLA but they are taking very long to respond to me and if I do not submit an out of time application, the enforcement agents will enforce and come to my house so I fear that I may be forced to do so without the letter form the DVLA.

there is no right of forced entry.

 

just tell the bailiffs if you wish the car is not yours, the driver was not you, it is a case of mass ID fraud at an old address, you were abroad on employment during time of issuance and are putting in the forms .

Hi

Have the vehicles in question with the PCNs & VIN Numbers ever belonged to you at any stage? if NO

Wait for DVLA response (I know you have reported this to Action Fraud) but I would then contact the Police non emergency number and report this matter to them also (note the crime reference number)

As I mentioned in my post last evening, without the letter from DVLA, I cannot see that Out of Time Statutory Declarations would be accepted. I appreciate that DVLA are taking quite a while to provide a letter to you. Prior to COVID 19, it had been the case that DVLA would provide these letters (which by the way.....are VERY common indeed) by return email. Sadly, that is no longer the case as many DVLA staff have been working from home for the past 12-18 months.

 

Please remember that CDER Group cannot force entry into your home. Although they can seize goods, this would almost always be a motor vehicle and in this respect, they would be seeking to clamp or remove the vehicle that had been involved in the TfL contraventions. Well clearly they are not going to find this vehicle outside of your home !!

 

Although bailiffs can remove goods form INSIDE a property, they can ONLY do so if you either leave the door open or them...or your INVITE them into your home. Both should be avoided. And in any event, because of COVID, bailiffs are NOT wanting to enter residential properties, so please do not panic. 

 

PS: These type of debts do NOT lead to court judgments and are not recorded with credit reference agencies either.

Thank you so much! I will wait till I receive the letter from the DVLA then before filing.

 

To answer a couple of questions above, the vehicles have never belonged to me. I have never even owned a vehicle and I've never driven or done anything with one in the UK. The police direct me to Action Fraud as they are the agency that deals with such fraud matters.

Thank you for your response. As you have never owned a vehicle in the UK, then CDER Group would have immense difficulty in enforcing any of the TfL warrants (or any other warrants that other companies may be enforcing). 

How long have you been waiting for the DVLA letter?

Share on other sites

I've just spoken with the DVLA and they have confirmed that I have never been registered with the vehicle (will just wait for the letter).

However, they suggested that it may have been the case that someone has hired the vehicle in my name and then incurred the fines, which I think will make things more difficult.

I am not sure how to conclusively prove that I haven't hired the vehicle if someone has purported to be me
