    • Case Stay Lifted on 21/05/2024 General sanctions order was made on 21/05/2024   they didnt file their questionarre on time. So they have another 7 days
    • Thank you BankFodder and jk2054. Dear Mr ***** *****, Re: Letter of Claim, Lost parcel delivery P2G123206851 Case Number 3348098 I write in response to your offer of £75 for the loss of the above parcel which I reject. Your offer comes nowhere near the value of the parcel that you were contracted to arrange the safe delivery of. You state that as I did not take out insurance to cover the full cost you will not be making any other offer. Attempting to limit or exclude your liability under the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 and your insistence on paying something in addition to the agreed contract price for the service is unfair and contrary to the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977. If I do not have a satisfactory outcome by the 10th July I will be issuing court proceedings. Kind regards,      
    • Thank you, I suggested a particular approach in my first post. Will you now follow the advice so that we can then understand exactly what has happened and advise you as to what to do.  
    • I'm not sure whether you will succeed in having the case transferred – but why not try? Whatever, if you don't hear anything – don't take anything for granted and attend at the designated court. If you can show that his licence was in force – back to back despite the various investigations – then there should be no problem. In any event, he should plead not guilty and then explained carefully to the court – maybe with a large diagram which he contender in evidence – and make it clear that if there is any offence is because of some misunderstanding but actually, the charge has been caused by a bureaucratic misunderstanding by the charging authorities. If he gets a "not guilty" then he should certainly ask for the costs of attending court. Don't go for a money grab but keep petrol receipts et cetera. He should point out to the court that he is very straight dealing. He abide by all regulations. He makes all disclosures. He is very concerned about road safety and understands exactly why these requirements are put in place for a man of his age. He should not be challenging in court
    • This happened approx 18 months - 2 years ago. I have not been out of pocket. eBay instantly paid the money to me and then investigated once the buyer claimed the item did not arrive. They favoured towards the buyer and therefore made my ebay account minus £9000. Subsequently the ebay account got suspended and I since cut ties with it and no longer have access to it.

    • 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.

Good morning CAG members 🤩,

I am looking for a bit of advice and effective signposting with my Erudio student loan issue.

I had 3 loans taken out from 1996 for 3 years of consecutive study.

I successfully deferred every year due to never earning over the threshold with SLC but then Erudio took over and it all changed.

I did not fully understand what was happening at the time and i received a large amount of paperwork to sign.

I do not remember exactly what they sent or what i signed back then for Erudio (but I had recently had a baby and was at that time claiming Income support).

After an issue with the IS, where I was in dispute with them over their appalling mathematics - which I won, so effectively was living off my savings (only £2000) for a short time. That same year I registered as self employed and began picking up work, still earning well under the repayment threshold. I have been SE ever since. It was during this year that the issue with Erudio began.

I deferred with them within the appropriate timescale. They told me to submit my SE tax returns, but i hadnt been trading long enough for this. I spoke with them at length on the phone (I now know this is a rookie mistake). I was told that i could submit my bank statements as evidence of income and earnings in lieu of SE returns form. I did this. I also redacted some of the information because they didnt need to know everything i spent my money on (tesco shop, etc, boring and irrelevant spend stuff) as i felt they were already far too nosey on their forms.

I heard nothing back after this and I also removed my landline number from their system (in order to force them to use paperwork instead of undocumentable phone calls). 


The next years deferment time they inform me that i was in arrears as i had not paid my loan for that year. No explanation, nothing. i continue to defer whilst putting in a complaint about it. I heard nothing back. Then i deferred again the next year and complained that my complaint had been ignored. They responded stating that they had investigated the issue and there is no complaint to uphold, brushing me off and stating that the arrears stand.

I pass the age of 50 (and 25 years since my loan began) but Im told i cannot have it wiped off because i am in arrears. I then send an SAR to them to get the information i need to fight this further. This is responded to by asking me to confirm the details of my original loan. I cannot do this because its over 25 years ago.

I contact SLC and asked them but they cannot give me this information either because its now with Erudio. I cannot get a straight answer from anyone. My SAR has not been honoured (this is over a year ago itself).

I KNOW I sent all the required paperwork at the time for the deferment. I suspect they have mismanaged this, but without the paperwork or SAR information I am stuck still deferring this loan and having unjustified arrears continually thrust upon me.


I cannot afford legal assistance on this, so what are my options please?


(and thank you so very much for providing this forum which i can access  in the first place).

Quite usual for these fleecers. They will pull any stunt to counter them not getting money 

 

When did you send the SAR and what year did your deferral fail in causing this

So, since my posting this the SAR info has requested my phone number (which i removed from their site in order to not be contacted that way again) and other details I can probably provide (but not all).
The alleged default pertains to 2013-2014 I think. It might be the year later.
I need the SAR to get a fix on the exact dates.

Yes. I agree.
At the time I spoke on the phone when they stated that, in Lieu of available tax returns, I could provide my bank statements for the last 3 months. I have no evidence of these conversations. Hence the removal of my phone number.
Im still unsure how to get the darn thing ended though.
My student debt is over 25 years old and im over 50, yet Im deferring forever..

lets get all the info we need

then we will resolve the issue.

 

you found the SLC forum to start your topic

go back there

read a good few threads here

you'll see that the fleecers have been told numerous times by the FOC and the FCA they simply cant pull these stunts because of one late/missed/bad deferment.

 

by the way.

have you confessed to them you DID miss one?

or you did always send forms but they ignored them?

I always sent the forms. On time, every time. I had no problems with the SLC.


They (Erudio) must have acknowledged receiving my deferment claim at the time because they called to ask to send more details - those bank statements.


The same ones they then ignored and did not accept as evidence of earnings (without informing me), hence the years worth of 'arrears' that accrued.


In my previous complaint I accused them of deliberately putting me in arrears in order to claw some money from my sold loan.


They completely refuted my claim and closed my complaint down.


I have been informed by them that because i have alleged 'arrears' on my loan account I cannot close it down by means of the longevity clause (mine being 25 years after or when i turned 50).


Its not a large amount of money to some people, but to me it is huge.

You sound just like all the others here.

In the same as, you have 'fake' arrears that they are using to stop your natural write off right.

 

You don't owe a penny, your loans are now wiped.

 

Several threads here the same go find them and read

Hi.
Thanks for checking in with me.
A lot of life (and death) has got in the way of my communication recently, so apologies for the tardy response.
Im also ND, so these things can get tricky.

I still havent received my SAR. Im still in 'arrears' according to them and my loan should have been scrapped 3 years ago now but still hasnt.
Im still self employed and still earning well below the threshold.
I have read a lot of the other forum posts and it confuses me quite a bit (if im being honest).
I guess i will be deferring again next month.
I wish i had studied law..
