    • Hello I hope someone can give me some advice here, as I am at a bit of a loss on how to proceed. This relates to alleged offences under the RTA. Yesterday I received a notification from the local police of intention to prosecute for the following offences: 1 driving without due care and attention 2 failing to stop at a road traffic accident 3 failing to report a road traffic accident At this stage they have only asked me to say whether I was the driver at the time or not and provided a blank sheet of paper to give information about the incident. Going by the location (just round the corner from where I live) I can only imagine this relating to one recent incident, which wasn't actually an accident but more of a road rage event. I was driving past someone unloading or working next to his lorry which had stopped in the road. I wasn't going fast or anything, while I went by lorry man turned around and punched and kicked my car whilst going past him. I stopped and got out and wanted to know what he thought he was doing punching and kicking my car. He then hurled some verbal abuse at me, swearing and he was quite aggressive. I still didn't know what his problem was and said I would report him to his company for threatening behaviour and vandalism for punching my car. I got my phone and tried to take a photo of his lorry and number plate but at that moment he came right at me, still shouting and swearing, so I was worried he may hit me next, as he already punched my car. I thought if the guy hits me I will come off second best, so I decided to retreat. I quickly got back into my car and left. When I checked my phone later the photo I tried to take was blurred and useless, so I thought it was pointless to report the incident to the police, as the guy would not be traceable. Over that I forgot about it until I got the letter yesterday in the post. This is the only thing I believe this can relate to, but I have no idea based on what the three above allegations come from There was no road traffic accident, more of a road rage incident. So I am at a loss what to do. I have 28 days to respond. Should I just say yes I was the driver and was there and see what happens next, or should I already make a written statement on the attached piece of paper they sent me and send that with it ? Is there anyone here who would have a rough idea what to do next ? I tried my legal advice line through my Union, but they have sent me from pillar to post, now say it needs to go to a different department again and that would be chargeable as the RTA comes under Criminal Law. So any advice would be appreciated Many Thanks
    • So a quick update got bounced around two different departments and managed to speak to a DVLA bod , explained the situation and they could see the overlap and that DD payments had been made from Feb , also no formal remiders prior , they gave me a number for the legal dept who I am calling this morning to see what they can do in terms of the SJP notice , still have time to submit this online.  Will update after my chat this morning 
    • Also, I am trying to understand how invoicing a large sum in a 6m period becomes tax fraud?   Is it because if he had invoiced over the £85k threshold he should have been obligated to charge vat?  Which would have meant hmrc would have benefited from the vat amount? So by not charging it Hmrc have lost out on £s revenue?  Is that what makes it tax fraud? So as a self-employed contractor, let's say he invoiced one Co for 200k.  Should he have charged vat on the full 200k (£40k)? Or just on the sum above the threshold (£23k)?  And that by not charging vat, he has knowingly withheld tax £s from Hmrc? And is the payer complicit ?

    • 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.

Not very well, unfortunately. 

My MP has explored various avenues but unfortunately, it doesn't seem like there is a solution.

Victim Support Groups aren't able to help with this case as they don't deal with circumstances such as mine and I keep receiving more and more PCNs. 

The company that I know that at least some of the vehicles have been hired from has developed a website that is very very dodgy (and refers to them "sorting out PCNs").

I went to their registered address in person and discovered that they do not have an office and just use the address for mailing purposes (although they have never responded to my letters).

I took this to the police but was just told to inform Action Fraud and when I do that ... nada happens. 

Not too sue what else I can do to end this trauma once and for all.

How about speaking to someone at Action fraud. Not use the website. Maybe they can advise. 

Go back to police and say action fraud has said they cant deal with this and the police need contacting.

I shared various news articles of other identity fraud stuff with my MP and asked her about this but she said the articles weren’t helpful as the fact patterns were slightly different. How would I reach out to the pres myself? And think I’d ultimately have to make it an article about the system failing as a whole?

The company is AK Vehicle Management Limited. 

 The ‘no hassle’ tab goes on to say ‘We will take care of your PCNs …’, the phone number is fake, and the website contains very poorly written English. These factors make me very suspect of it, which is why I tried to take this to the police in person.

I managed to speak to a victim support adviser at ActionFraud but they just told me I had to keep challenging the PCNs one by one. I’ve gone to the police but they tell me they do not have the power to investigate this as it falls under Action Fraud’s jurisdiction.

Agree with FTMDave. I dont follow as such but these papers need a challenging case. I notice when other post them for free on fb.

A meaty case might be more interesting.

Yes you could try the opposite camp Daily mail, or the Sun. All will be in a similar format, but as TFL getting flak you might have success with one of them.

It doesn't show the creditor and let's you know this before you go through the payment process for the search. 

Credit Searches fail to display the name of the creditor and this has been a huge problem for years. The good news is that this omission is amongst proposals which hopefully will be introduced within the next few months.

In the meantime, instead of me reading back over many pages, are all the Penalty Charge Notices issued by Transport for London? How many are there?

Also, have you actually contacted TfL?

I've had penalty charges issued by TfL and a variety of London local councils. I've also had a few private parking charges. In total I've probably contested about 30 charges (i.e. ones I've received enforcement notices) and I know that there are many more out there from doing a Subject Access Request on a bailiff. 

 

I've contacted TfL and the various local councils; they say there's nothing they can do to stop this and that I should just challenge each charge when I receive an enforcement notices through the TEC route. Neither Action Fraud nor my MP have been of any help either.

This is madness. I cant believe its still going. 

Surely they cant believe after all the evidence that this is you.

When I challenge the enforcement notices, the challenges are successful,  it's not the case that the local councils think that it's me.

They just don't have any system in place for this situation and have no flexibility to consider unique situations or do anything that isn't per their textbook. Ultimately, when I share the Action Fraud reports which say that it isn't me, that does the trick 

The admin burden is still huge though, a CCJ could be issued against me at any time, sometimes I have very limited time to challenge as the bailiffs are already at the final enforcement stage by the time I find out about the charges and this generally is a mental burden on. So all very difficult.

You have a DVLA letter saying you dont have a driving license. You have a DVLA letter saying you have never had a car in your name. 

I still dont understand how anyone can then believe you are the person as if its a hire car you need to prove you have a full valid license some even require you to have separate insurance. 

If the hire company have not done the checks then its a flag for me. 

I know you SAR'd the hire company and was ignored but did u follow it up and make other checks on the company.

Yes, the company is extremely dodgy.

I've obtained a copy of one of the hire agreements and the driving licence number of the form is fake.

Other details, e.g. date  of birth, are also wrong. 

The website of the company 

AK Vechicles | Just another WordPress site (akvehicle.com)

 

The website says

'We understand the pressures faced by PCO drivers so we do everything we can to ensure you can spend as much time as possible on the road.

We will take care of your PCNs, PCO testing, servicing, MOT and insurance, leaving you to focus on earning a living.'

I think this company is just a company that fraudulently offers this scam as a service. 

I've reported them to trading standards but don't think that really did anything.

Maybe we need to find out if they have a over all trade body a bit like ofcom. 

Then u could go to them also see if they are a registered company. Speak to companys house.

Hi

Are you sure they are registered on Companies House?

As there is nothin on their website identifying them nor even a Privacy Policy.

And when I do a look into them there is a Company on Companies House but it is not the Company of the AK Vehicle Website your posted.

The one I get is in Salisbury but its not the same website you posted

Post the Companies House link or their Company Number
