    • So much for protecting our borders - Guv all just dog whistles   Office for the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration to have budget slashed - Neal The Office for the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration will have its budget cut by five per cent year on year, David Neal has revealed, Holly Bancroft reports. Mr Neal is giving evidence to the Home Affairs Committee in a one-off session on immigration after being sacked by James Cleverly. The home secretary said Mr Neal had “breached the terms of appointment and lost the confidence of the home secretary” after Mr Neal warned of “dangerous” failings by border force that he claimed were allowing “high-risk” aircraft to land in Britain without security checks. The Home Office had “categorically rejected” the claims, saying that Mr Neal “has chosen to put misleading data into the public domain”.

    • "In an explosive revelation, Mr Staunton also alleged that the current Post Office CEO threatened to resign over a HR investigation into his own conduct. Mr Staunton said Post Office chief executive Nick Read had fallen out with the HR director “and she produced a document that was 80 pages in length” and there was just one paragraph in there about his own conduct and use of “politically incorrect comments”. Mr Staunton said Mr Read was “really quite upset” and threatened to resign a number of times. But just an hour before Mr Staunton’s testimony, Mr Read had denied - under oath - that he had ever having tried to resign."   I’m victim of smear campaign says sacked Post Office chair as he accuses CEO of lying WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK Henry Staunton, sacked by business secretary Kemi Badenoch, gives evidence to Commons committee     see also from the post above "Carl Creswell, an official from the Department for Business and Trade said Tidswell had told Ben Tidswell that some board members might resign if Henry Staunton were not sacked)" Tidswell says he was right (See 11.14am.)"   So baden-ouch seems to be at the very least twisting the truth - no surprise there

    • 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.

Hi everyone first post here so please forgive me for any mistakes .

I have a 7k Bank of Scotland debt from 10 years ago and for the last 6 years i have been paying £50 a month  to IDEM who bought the debt .

Last week i got a letter from Hoist finance who claim they have now bought the debt and were demanding a payment to be made TWO days before the date on the letter head !!

They also referred to the debt in the original creditor name as Lloyds bank  !!

My first thought was to send them a CCA request which i done  they confirmed my account will remain on hold whilst they request the required documents , if they bought the debt why dont they have the documents ?

How long is reasonable time for them to produce the documents and any advice on what my next steps should be .

 

Cheers

Martin

what was the credit type?

 

why are/have you been blindly paying a DCA esp for +6yrs on a debt that you'd never questioned the enforceability on by sending a CCA request - well done eventually! -

, now ignore then till they comply

 

they are NOT BAILIFFS and have ZERO legal powers on ANY DEBT.

  • dx100uk changed the title to Idem now Hoist Finance old hbos debt - errors/incompetence

 

Well it was a Bank of Scotland credit card which I 100% owe so defaulted back than and been paying payments ever since , with the debt now being sold on .

 

The default has long dropped off my credit report and  for what its worth my expiran score is now 949.

With the cost of living biting I am struggling to pay this now .

Throw the morality card out the window...they do  .

 

You should have sent that CCA years ago.

 

All you have been doing is you've been a nice DCA cash cow for god knows how many years, running the sb date to infinity.

 

Can't comeback on your file defaulted more than 6yrs ago .

12+2 then they are in default and unable to enforce the agreement should they wish to litigate.

So 30 days have now passed since Hoist acknowledged my CCA request with them stating my account is on hold and i have NOT heard anything since then ...

 

I know they cannot mess with my credit file but could they commence legal action or is that unrealistic from a cost point of view considering they must of bought my debt for pennies .

 

I am an impatient individual and am wondering what my next step is .

Failed 12+2 working days limit 

Stop paying!!

 

Until or unless they reply with enforceable paperwork I doubt they'll go anywhere near a court room door 

 

Plus they have to abide by the pre action protocol 1st and send a letter of claim.

 

Well done another cash cow removed from the DCA milking parlour.

So had a lovely letter from Hoist today enclosing a copy of the current terms and conditions provided by Lloyds  and also stating they CANNOT provide an historic copy .

 

It also says that my query remains open until they receive a response from the original creditor who they keep referring to as Lloyds bank when it actually  Bank of Scotland !

 

It then says a payment arrangement is in place and my next payment is due by sep 18 🤣 which is nonsense as no payment plan has been discussed with Hoist .

Not quite 

Probably quite true that Lloyds have become the original creditors 

 

Lloyds, tsb, hbos, RBS, all inter merged and then split and remerged in many diff ways since 1999.

 

It's a real shame you got scammed into paying £50pcm for +6yrs to idem...never mind you are wise of dca's now

Hoist just love trying it on as another lovely letter asking if  my payment plan is ok when i have never made one with them  !

 

So many small inaccuracies as the letter was sent to a variation of my address along with a payment plan amount that is different to the previous letter  stated amount lol .

 

Almost feel that they make it up as they go along ?

they do.

try anything to get you to respond.

 

they'll know the history from day one.

 

idem got you cash cowing nicely and thought they'd dump you before you found out and sold it to hoist, here you have a bit of free money, this mugs paid for +6yrs never once questioning anything.

 

ironic thing is hoist UK are now part of Lowells.

Its a template , DCAs simply do not operate or have the resources to deal with debtors on a personal level ...nor do they have any particularised history details of any account...so don't take it personally.

Have received a letter today from Hoist saying they have enclosed a copy of the agreement and statements from my CCA request and requesting me to enter into a payment plan.

 

There is a readable copy of my 24 year old application form and a 10 page credit card agreement with my name at the top plus print outs of the monthly credit card statements .

 

What i noticed missing was a copy of the default notice ( i still have the original one issued 10 years ago)

 

Next move ?

Probably t&C's with your name at the start for time of take out and an application form missing most of the prescribed terms?

from page 2 fwd, there are pages missing .

 

we need right thru to para 18 and beyond and the sig page on that agreement

 

page 1 is just an application form.

 

you dont get a default notice in a reply to a CCA request.

So just to clarify  because those CCA documents have no dates and no signature boxes its not enforceable ?

 

Have to admit they could of just typed my name on the top of any relevant document and claimed its vaild !

 

That application form is so old its worthless ?

 

As always DX you are a very helpful individual.
