    • Thank you very much for your letter in regard to the above mentioned shipment.  Due to the high volume of parcels coursing through the courier network each day, undergoing continuous processing and handling, certain packages may experience delays or even can get lost in the course of this journey. Please note that due to the time that has passed, this shipment has been declared as lost.  I have today processed the claim and made offers to the value of £75 as a goodwill gesture without prejudice. I do acknowledge that you have mentioned in your letter that the value was higher, however, you did not take out any protection to that amount. The protection for this shipment was £20 and we will not be increasing our goodwill offer any further.    Please log into your account online in order to accept our offer. Once accepted, our accounts department will process the claim accordingly. The claim payment will be processed and received within 7 working days.                                  In addition, a refund of the carriage fee will be processed as a separate payment and will be received within 3 working days.  If I can further assist, please feel free to contact me.   I have also just noticed that yesterday afternoon they sent me an email stating that "after my request" they have refunded the cost of shipping. I did not request the refund so will mention that in my letter as well.
    • Hi I had to leave Dubai back in 2011, during the financial crisis. And only now have I received a letter from IDRWW. Is this anything to worry about about as I have 2 years left until it’s been 15 years(statute barred in Dubai). Worried as just got a mortgage 2 years ago. Could they force me in to bankruptcy? Red lots of different threads on here. And unsure what true and what isn’t.

    • Often with the Likes of Lowells/ Overdales that 'proof' doesn't stand up to scrutiny.   Think about it like a game of poker, they want to intimidate you into folding and giving up as soon as possible, and just get you to pay up and roll over, that is their business model, make you think your cards are rubbish. What they don't expect, and their business isn't set up for it, is for a defendant to find this place and to learn that they have an amazing set of cards to play. Overdales don't have an infinite number of lawyers, paralegals etc, and the time / money to spend on expensive court cases, that they are highly likely to lose, hence how hard they will try to get you to roll over.  Even to the extent of faking documents, which they need to do because the debts that they purchased were so cheap, in the first place. Nevertheless it works in most cases, most people chicken out, when they are so close to winning, and a holding defence is like slowly showing Overdales your first card, and a marker of intention that this could get tricky for them. In fact it may be,  although by no means guaranteed that it won't even go any further than that.  Even if it does, what they send you back will almost certainly have more holes than Swiss Cheese, and if with the help you receive here, you can identify those weaknesses and get the whole thing tossed in the bin.

    • 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.

If it was a hire vehicle then the enforcement would have been against the hire company not against you.

 

It would have been a separate action against you to recover a debt

typically the hire co. will fwd your details to the relevant authorities.

from them, they would know it was a hire car and would tell you so if asked.

 

they would also levy a charge to the payment method, so if it was someone else then they must have used a differing named card to pay the hirer and the charges .

that would tell you who has done this

It is very common for parking penalties to be issued against a hire company and what happens when this occurs is this:

 

A Penalty Charge Notice would be issued against the registered keeper of the vehicle.

 

Purely for the sake of example, a vehicle had been hired from Zipcar. The Penalty would be received by Zipcar and once received, Zipcar would return the Penalty back to Transport for London (for example) and request that Liability be transferred to the vehicle hirer. They would provide the name and address of the hirer and this information would come from the Hire Agreement.

 

It is not easy for a hirer of the vehicle to provide somebody else's name as the hirer. This is because; almost all vehicle hire companies, will also request sight of the hirer's DRIVING LICENCE. The reason for this being that Zipcar would need to satisfy themselves that the hirer:

1. Held a valid driving licence

2. That the hirer was not banned from driving

3. Was a UK resident.

 

The hire company would also request a valid credit or debit card. 

 

As I have advised before, you really should call Transport for London. When doing so, you would need to provide the PCN number and vehicle reg number  for one of the tickets. Simply ask the operator to confirm the precise name and address where the INITIAL Penalty Charge Notice had been sent.

 

If the operator refuses to assist you, I would suggest that you advise him or her that you will be looking to make a Formal Complaint

Ok thanks both.

I have called TfL and asked that query:

they said the original PCNs were sent to my old address, which is the address that they have as registered with the vehicle and that is all they can say.

I called the DVLA and they said that such address is not registered with the vehicle with them.

Did tfl actually confirm what they think was your old address or just said sent to your old address without telling you rhe address and you not checking or telling them what ut actually is?

 

something is not sitting right here too me?

 

tfl would only get an address from the dvla and they say otherwise...weird.

I told them my current address and that was not the correct one. So then, I said it the address xyz (i.e. my old address) and they confirmed this was the case. I told them what my old address was. 

 

That is what TfL have told me too but the DVLA have told me that either of my addresses have never been recorded to the vehicle so I do not know what has happened here.

relayed from Bailiff advice:

I would suggest that you send a copy of your letter that you sent to DVLA to the following email address (sent by a PM from DX).

In the email subject box, ensure you state the following:

VERY URGENT. Demands from TfL for unpaid congestion charges. Action Fraud advised. Vehicle Reg: xxx

  • 2 weeks later...

TfL have conducted their investigation into the matter and they informed me that I am the nominated hirer of the vehicle and liability of the fine was transferred to me correctly as they received a valid hire agreement form the registered keeper of the vehicle.

It sounds like liability was transferred to me after the fine was obtained but as mentioned, I have never hired a vehicle.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can do or how this happened? The only thing I can think of is that someone created a false driving licence and purported to be me?

Separately, I received the letter from the DVLA stating that I am not the registered owner of the vehicle but it looks like that alone won't assist me now.

When did you get the letter from DVLA and what exactly does it say?

 

This changes everything. So the vehicle in question, belongs to a hire company.

 

You need to get back to TfL as soon as possible. 

They have confirmed to you that they have received a copy of 'a valid hire agreement' from the hire company with your name on it. Excellent.......You need a copy of this 'hire agreement' right now.  They must provide it to you.

The letter from the DVLA says that there is no record of me being the registered keeper of the vehicle and they advise me to use the letter of evidence of that fact.

 

I will ask TFL to provide a copy of the 'valid hire agreement'.

 

I will ask the DVLA about them having record of a driving licence in my name. I have a foreign driving licence but have never registered/used it in the UK so I don't think they should have record of it.  

 

With regards to sending a sar, apologies for my lack of knowledge, but what is a sar?

click sar.

 

as for a foreign driving licence, is it valid,  'could' you have used it to hire a vehicle (even though we know you did not) on a like hire agreement, so thats why you need proof of otherwise it was not you.

 

as for not being the registered keeper, you won't be, and you knew that, it was a hire vehicle.

Thanks, I'll take a look at the page.

 

It is an EU licence which is valid in the country it was obtained. I assume that I could in theory start using it straight away in the UK but have never looked into it as I have no need to drive. 

 

Yep I know. Doesn't seem like it is too useful now but still good to have I guess.

As mentioned, I had submitted an N244 form and I went to court today.

 

The judge said that she would grant me a 14 day extension but I am slightly confused as I thought that if my out of time application was granted the notice would be cancelled and reissued (I submitted the TE9 form together with a TE7 form).

 

I queried next steps with the judge and she said she couldn't help.

 

Should I submit a TE9 form again?

This one relates to the Redbridge council penalty charge and I have found out that for this one, the vehicles were hired from a company called AK Vehicle Management Limited. I've never heard of them, there isn't much info online about them and they ignored a SAR request that I submitted.

When did you send the sar?

They must respond in 30 days.

its a legal requirement the can be enforced by the ICO and court.

 

did you get a copy of the hire agreement from tfl as @Bailiff Advice advised?

Whatever you do, do NOT submit either another TE7 or TE9 !!!

 

As the Out of Time application for the Redbridge PCN had been rejected, you were given the option of seeking a 'review' of the rejection by way of an N244 Application. In seeking a 'review' you would be required to outline REASONS as to WHY you considered that the application should NOT have been rejected by LB of Redbridge.

 

The letter from the Traffic Enforcement Centre (advising you of the rejection), does NOT provide the REASON for rejection. Instead, you would need to rely upon the Statement of Truth from Redbridge.

 

I suspect that Redbridge failed to provide you with a copy. Before filing the N244, you should have requested a copy. TEC could also provide a copy to you (they were charging a fee of £10 for such requests....I believe that the 'photocopying' charge has recently increased). 

 

An N244 is a general application. What were you requesting from the court? What information did you provided on your application?

 

Almost certainly, you need to wait to receive the formal Order from the County Court. The Court will also send a copy to TEC. 

 

Since you last posted almost 3 months ago, has there been any further development on the PCN's issued by Transport for London? Have you received a copy of the supposed 'rental agreement'?

You are correct, there is almost nothing available online for this company. However, (and it could be a coincidence) but a google search on one of the directors does reveal a Gumtree advert for '71' plate electric cars for rent that are 'UBER ready' and PCL Approved'. Might be worth a look.

urm that would sort of make some sense here...and tally with so many offences in one area, the car hired was an uber car.

the driver was making money out of using your details gendered from mail being still sent to your old address.

and thus couldn't careless about any motoring offences they committed as everything was in your name
