    • There's a thread somewhere about someone sending the baillifs against Wizzair that is quite hilarious. I would love to see someone do the same to Ryanair. Question is, should you be the one to take that role. You are entitled to the £220, if your flight was from the UK. If it was TO the UK I suppose it is more of a grey area... though the airlines I know have been using £220 as standard. Not that surprising for Ryanair, the worst cheapskates in the universe, to go for the lower amount, and if you forward this to the CEO he will probably have a jolly good laugh and give his accountants a verbal bonus. After all he's the one who said and I paraphrase "F*** our customers, they'll fly with us again anyway". While we would all love to see Ryanair get wooped in court again, I have to join my fellow posters in thinking it's not worth the hassle for (hypothetically) £7 and not sure it will expedite the payment either. It's already an achievement that you got them to accept to pay.

    • Thanks for your interest dx100. Didn’t reach a hearing. Although they filed court papers, they withdrew a few days beforehand, and admitted it was statute barred and I have it in writing that they say the matter is now closed. Once again, many thanks for all your help.

    • 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, 

 

Like most people here I'm looking for some advice and haven't found a similar question already posted.

 

I ran into financial hardship in 2012 and struggled to meet the minimum payments to a Halifax credit card.

 

 That same year service was withdrawn by the bank and I entered into a peppercorn payment plan that I paid for a number of years.

 

 After sometime the debt was sold to Lowell and I actually #cringe continued to make payments.

 

In 2018 I wrote to them explaining I wouldn't be working due to health complications and made them a full and final payment offer which was rejected.

 

They wanted me to raise my payments even after I provided evidence I was in the red at the end of each month and living off of support.

 

 At that time I was fed up, felt harassed and stressed so wrote back stating that I've tried to work with them its going no where so I'm not making any more payments and I wont be corresponding with them again.

 

Over the years since this they'll periodically write and I'll ignore.

 

I did move, they found me and started sending letters to my new address.

 

I've had several we're considering referring to solicitor letters from them. 

 

Last week I received a 'Notice of Acting' letter from Overdales Solicitors. As per advice here I'm still inclined to ignore unless its a 'Letter of Claim'.

 

Over the weekend I did a credit check and there's no defaults in relation to this card, its not even listed as an old account.

 

Could it have been removed because of the age of the debt?

 

Is it possible they could still legitimately take me to court for this balance or are they trying new scare tactics for me to make contact?      

 

You're advice and experience would be appreciated. 

 

Much thanks. 

 

Have I posted this in the right place?

  • dx100uk changed the title to Lowell/Overdales - Halifax One Credit Card Debt

i am wondering if YOU have actually written to Halifax or Lowells simply stating your current and correct address?

if you have not, it might be wise to do so to prevent a possible backdoor CCJ?

Then they are known for purposefully filing to last advised address.

 

Simply WRITE to Lowell inform them of your correct and current address as per debt ref xxxxx 

 

You should be doing this also regarding any debt you last paid/used that type of credit in say the last 7 yrs.

***UPDATE***
I have now received a ‘Letter of Claim - 30 days to prevent legal action.’

 

Included is a reply form. 
Section 1: Do you own the debt?

Section 2: How will I pay?

Section 3: Do You Intend to get debt advice?

Section 4: What documents are you sending or requesting? Inc. financial statement. 
 

Is this the point I engage?

  • 3 months later...

I submitted a CCA request in October 2022

 

receiving a package of documents in February 2023 providing a copy of the signed credit agreement with Halifax dated 2005 along with some of the statements of the account.

 

I believe the statements provided are incomplete as they start several years after the account was opened and doesn’t include the payments made after the card service was withdrawn and once the debt was sold nor included default notifications.

  

Overdales cover letter states if I wish to dispute the matter to provide further information or any evidence which will support my dispute.

 

To kindly note they are able to accept an affordable payment offer and they require me to make contact with my intentions towards the matter otherwise they may request a CCJ.

 

Further advice would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

I have no idea if or how I compressed it in the first place. Should I try again? 

There are two sets of documents. One starts with the personal details page followed by points 1-23.6. The other starts with personal details followed by point 1-17.6.

Bundles go 1-8  then 9-18 both have the duplicated pages 1-2 & 9-10 with my signature dated 2005. No signature on behalf of bank. 

I rescan and try to get a better view of the blurred page, the font is far smaller than on the others.  

 

**edit** I can rescan and try to get a better view of the blurred page. Its not the best quality and is a small font size.

I’ve not had a default notice, payments stopped in 2018. Should I advise them they didn’t provide all documents requested or go back to ignoring? In your experience are they brave enough to go to court?
