    • This auction was all undertaken 'on-line' on the 8th June, on their Sandy location... I'm sorry, I am unable to see where the odometer reading is a 0. thanks  
    • Thank you Please explain your words "The optics would not be good". I'm very stressed and not thinking right, sorry.  T&C are here:  Attention Required! | Cloudflare WWW.CURRYS.CO.UK   Each instore trade-in gift card says to use it to buy sepecfic product and that you can't use it towards airtime, certain phones or accessories but it also works on anything else.    Here example of voucher  currys voucher.pdf PS. my friend rang customer services in front of me and his card was emptied by the same person that emptied mine. He got his vouchers from 2x different stores so instore theft by employee isn't valid in this case. 
    • My main argument is that they are in receipt (on balance of prob) of my SAR 2022 letter and my letter of claim.   Regardless of this they chose to insist that my emails in 2021 are what my claim is about by saying:"   ". The Claimant has presented a claim seeking damages for alleged breach of the Data Protection Act 2018, Section 45 (3), following a subject access request he made in 2021.   However, the email chain makes it clear that the Claimant seeks information in relation to a third party's personal injury claim against him"   I'm arguing that they're (alleged) confusion is unwarranted as my most recent communications make it clear that I am intending to claim for my newest request dated 2022...   it seems to me they are purposefully taking advantage of the fact that my particulars of claim does not mention the exact date of my DSAR referred to in my claim, to pretend to confuse my claim with my old DSAR in 2021. Although my new letters which are on their system are clear.   They have:   1. ignored my letter of claim and my DSAR 2022 sent by letter 2. viewed their system and see my new letter for DSAR 2022 and letter of claim, and view my old emails in 2021. 3. insist that my claim is about my old SAR in 2021 and without asking for any clarity (on which DSAR my claim refers to) if they required, immediately fire of an application to strike out and supposedly spend hours on these documents.   (Also, technically, they are claiming that in my older DSAR dated 2021 that they provided all the data relating to me, that is their claim. However there is no evidence of that. I presume only the ICO can confirm such by reviewing their files...)     is what I'm writing making any sense? Please can the experts assess my defence, and let me know whether I should just pay the £1k in case the costs increase if it goes to a hearing.   My claim is only for a very small amount of money but they're claiming £1k..    
    • To answer the question whether Currys has a case against you, someone will need to analyse the detailed terms of the offer, anything you signed etc.    This is not the shoplifting type of case that RLP pursues. If anything, Currys will pursue you, but I can't see this happening. You took advantage of a weakness in Currys' design of the particular promotion. The optics would not be good.    I have the impression that your friend's gift card details may have been used fraudulently. Perhaps he should investigate it further with Currys. I am not sure he is right if his attitude is that you just don't argue any more. 
    • Morning DX,   Crashed out last night!   I shall submit the following defence today and have added point number 6 as you advised regarding the year until which I was in deferment and never earning more than the threshold.     The Defendant contends that the Particulars of Claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   1. Paragraph 1 & 2 are noted the Defendant has in the past had financial dealings with the original creditor - The Student Loans Company. I am unable to recall the precise details of the alleged agreement or debt nor do I recognise the agreement numbers the claimant refers to. The Defendant has sought verification from the Claimant by way of a section 77 request which as to this date has failed to comply and remains in default.   2. Paragraph 3 & 4 are denied. I am not aware of any service of a Default Notice pursuant to section 87 of the consumer credit Act 1974 by the claimant nor the original creditor, nor of any legal assignment pursuant to the Law and Property Act 1925 section 136 (1).   3. It is not accepted with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant and the Claimant is put to strict proof to:   a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and   b) show how the Defendant’s alleged debt has reached the amount claimed for; and   c) show the nature of breach and service of a Default Notice and subsequent Notice of Sums in Arrears in accordance with the Consumer Credit Act 1974; and   d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim.   4. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5 (4) it is expected that the Claimant proves the allegation that the money is owed.   5. On the alternative, as the Claimant claims to be an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of section 136 of the Law of Property Act and section 82A of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.   6.  The defendant was in continued deferment until 2020 and has never earned over the threshold.   7. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief

My car slid in the snow, scuffing another car, no damage, someone told my insurance company..- now my NCD/ins renewal has been refused!!

Recommended Posts

Back in Dec 2021 near new year, my car slid down a little snow, and just touched the other car within a hair width leaving some light scuff marks, he told his insurance but said it was nothing and he would deal, the person even messaged me to confirm and I still have the text. It was literally some light scrapes.. 

 

My insurance co even said at the time all is fine and they have moved on. 

 

I got an email saying they can not renew my claim, I was dumbfounded as I had done nothing wrong. I then looked at the policy end notice and it said"

 

NCD: 0 

 

They have said "the claim is notification only, however we have to wait 6 months to make sure no 3rd party comes in"   - This is madness, I have proof that the "3rd party" is not "going in"...

 

What am I meant to do here now? Just not drive for 6 months or start my NCD all over again and lose 3 years worth of savings?

 

Or can I still use my NCD bonus despite them robbing me of it???

 

Just more proof the the insurance industry is unregulated and run by mobsters!!!! 

 

this world is screwed!!!

I'm not fully clear on what has happened.

 

When was the renewal date of your policy? Is your insurer saying that they will not renew your policy? If so have they explained why?

 

The answer to "Or can I still use my NCD bonus despite them robbing me of it???" is No. The only thing another insurer will accept is what your last insurer say is your NCD on the renewal notice. You have no other way of evidencing 3 years NCD.

My renewal was coming up for June... I had an email 1 week or so ago saying something like "at this time we can't renew your policy" of which I of course emailed back to ask why as nothing had changed and there had been no claims... which there has not... I then noticed on the email that it said 0 NO CLAIMS. 

I have proof from the person saying he is not making a claim and that he agreed there was minimal damage if any at all... 

 

This is absolutely wrong! Seriously how can they even attempt this?!

The refusal to renew is a more serious problem for you than the NCD right now. When getting quotes you will always be asked if an insurer has ever cancelled or refused to renew a policy and you will have to answer 'Yes'. The likely consequence of that is many insurers will refuse to quote, or will quote high premiums.

 

From the information in your post I can't understand why your insurer is refusing to renew. You need to call them and try to get to the bottom of this. Tell them that refusal to renew is putting you in an impossible position with finding alternative insurance. Even if the incident had resulted in a claim against and your insurer paying it the amount would have been very small. Insurers don't normally refuse to renew if there has just been one small accident. [EDIT just seen the link to your previous thread. I will read it, that may explain insurer's attitude]

 

Do you have a prior history of accidents and convictions and your insurer is treating this as the 'last straw'?

No no history, no claims ever nothing. 

Yes I do not understand either..

 

THERE WAS NO CLAIM.... They are saying it is "notification only" - I can't see how this gives them the right to absolutely screw me over... Am I dealing with someone with no experience here (the insurers - like is it a new trainee or something?! - Cause it does not make sense)!

On January 4th insurer told you they considered you may be in breach of policy condition for failure to report an incident [my emphasis].  I guess that is why they are now refusing to renew the policy.

 

"...we have been notified by a third party that your vehicle was involved in an accident on 00/00/00.

You have not notified us of this claim and therefore you may be in breach of the conditions of your policy.

We need to investigate further before we can decide whether we can deal with the claim, until we let you know in writing nothing said or done or anyone acting for us should be understood as confirming our position. "

 

You sent them the photos they asked for on January 9th.  There were no further updates posted after that. What has happened since January 9th?

 

The non-renewal is the big problem for you. The NCD issue will solve itself - if there is no claim after 6 months it should be reinstated.

 

Concentrate on getting the insurer to offer you renewal.

On what date?

 

Did you keep a copy of the Live Chat conversation?  You usually have the option to download the conversation. Post up the text here please (personal identifiers removed).

 

Did they ever send you anything else about the incident? Or anything else at all before you got the email (a week ago?)  telling you they wouldn't renew?

 

Please post the text of the email here as well.

 

Who is the insurer?

I have just got through on phone to claims... they agreed it was an automated email that decded to strip my ncb.... I have sent screen grab of the text messages I had with person where he stated he is not making a claim at all... They said they will update it on their claims file and that someone will get in touch next week to see about getting my ncb back and possible continuation of policy.. 

Nothing more can be done now. 

 

Thanks for everyone help.

@mrk123  Sounds like progress. Bear in mind that typically the claims deprtment decides about NCD but it's up to the (separate) underwriting department whether to renew and at what £££.

 

If it helps, if I were discussing this with the insurer I would be stressing these points.

 

1. The incident occurred on December 29th 2021, you notified them when you got their text January 4th 2022. That's a time period of only 3 working days (2 if you don't count New Years Eve as a working day). 

 

2. You had taken photos at the time for insurers to provide them with information they would need. That is evidence of your intention to report the incident at the earliest practicable opportunity.

 

3. The accident was trivial, minor dent/scratch to bumper. It was not a moving traffic accident (ie neither car was being driven) and no-one was injured

 

4. You provided information about it to the police [on the day of the accident(?)] to ensure an independent report on the circumstances  was available to insurers

 

5. Since your initial report to insurers on January 4th you have provided them with everything they have requested promptly. You note that since January 4th they have not sought any further information or carried out any investigations so they presumably had all the information they needed by that date, less than a week after the accident.

 

6. In consequence of the above the insurers have not been prejudiced or disadvantaged in any way  in their ability to deal with any claim if one had come in. And no claim has come in.

 

Good luck. FWIW insurers non-renewal decision seems very harsh in the circumstances so hopefully when you get to discuss it with a real human being decision maker all will be well. I suspect that if you had to make a complaint to the Insurance Ombudsman/FOS your insurer would find it hard to demonstrate that non-renewing your policy was 'treating the customer fairly'.
