    • be very wary upon what you see being recently posted on here 😎 regarding KIH.... all is not what it seems...  
    • 1st - all my posts on CAG are made not only in reply to the specific issue the topic starter makes but also in a general matter to advise any future readers upon the related subject - here it is kings interhigh online school. KIH lets take this topic apart shall we so readers know the real situation and the real truth...and underline the correct way to deal with KIH. https://tinyurl.com/ycxb4fk7 Kings Interhigh Online School issues - Training and Apprenticeships - Consumer Action Group - but did not ever reply to the last post.  but the user then went around every existing topic here on CAG about KIH pointing to the above topic and the 'want' to make some form of group  promoting some  'class action' against KIH . then on the 2nd march this very topic this msg is in was created. all remarkably similar eh? all appear to be or state..they are in spain... ....as well as the earlier post flaunting their linkedin ID, (same profile picture) that might have slipped through via email before our admin killed it.., trying to give some kind of legitimacy to their 'credentials' of being 'an honest poster'....oh and some kind of 'zen' website using a .co.uk  address (when in spain- bit like the Chinese ebay sallers) they run ... and now we get the father of the bride ...no sorry...father of a child at the uk-based international school in question posting ...pretending to be not the 'other alf... do you really think people are that stupid..... ................... nope you never owed that in the 1st place... wake up you got had and grabbed the phone - oh no they are taking me to court under UK jurisdiction...and fell for every trick in the book that they would never ever put in writing that could be placed in front of a court operating under their stated uk jurisdiction wherever you live. T&C's are always challengeable under UK law this very site would not exist if it were not for the +£Bn's bank charges reclaiming from 2006> and latterly the +£Bn's of PPI reclaiming both directly stated in the banks' T&C's were they claimed they were legally enforceable ...not!! they lost big time... why? a waste of more money if you've not got a court claim....... why not use them for a good outcome...go reclaim that £1000 refundable deposit you got scammed out of . people please research very carefully ...you never know who any of these people are that are posting about kings interhigh and their 'stories' they could even be one of their online tutors or a shill . don't get taken in. dx      
    • @KingsParent thank you for sharing your experience.  I also tried contacting the CEO but didn’t get very far. Do you mind sharing his contact details?  kind regards   
    • Thank you Rocky for the clarifications though they did cause a problem at first since an original windsccreen ticket was  of a different breach some time before. The current windscreen ticket only states that you were parked there for 6 minutes which is just one minute over the minimum time allowed as the Consideration period. There is no further proof that you parked there for any longer than that is there? More photographs for example? Moving on to the Notice to Keeper-it does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4. First there is no parking period mentioned on it. there is the time 20.25 stated which coincides with the W/S ticket but a parking period must have a starting and finishing time-just one time is insufficient to qualify as a parking  period as required in Section 9 [2] [a] . Are there any different photos shown on the NTK comapared to the w/s PCN? Not that that would make a difference as far as PoFA goes since the times required by PoFA should be on the NTK but at the moment Met only appear to show that you stayed there for 6 minutes. Another failure to comply with PoFA is at S9([2][e] where their wording should be "the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; ". You can see on your NTK that they misssed off the words in brackets. Met cannot therefore transfer the charge from the driver to the keeper. Only the driver is now liable. Then their is the discrepancy with the post code on the NTK  HA4 0EY which differs from the post code on the contract and the Post Office Postcode Finder which both list it as HA4 0FY. As you were not parked in HA4 0EY the breach did not occur. In the same way as if you were caught speeding in the Mall in London, yet you were charged with speeding in Pall mall London [a street nearby] you would be found not guilty since though you were speeding you were not speeding in Pall Mall. I bow to Eric's brother on his reasoning on post 12 re the electric bay abuse  That wording is not listed on their signs nor is there any mention on the contract of any electric charging points at all let alone who can park there or use them. He is quite right too that the entrance sign is merely an invitaion to treat it cannot form a contrct with motorists. Also the contract looks extremely  short no doubt there will be more when we see the full Witness statement. As it stands there is no confirmation from Standard Life [or Lift !] on the contract that Savills are able to act on their behalf. Also most contracts are signed at the end of the contract to prevent either side adding extra points. So their percentage  chance of winning their case would be somewhere between 0.01 and 0.02.

    • 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.

I want / need to change my name.

Some mods here will know the situation I am in, well if you do that guy is getting very passive aggressive and I have had to press charges with the police as he is continuing to harass me at 9pm at night with emails and texts and now has my full name since when the police messaged him they used my full name, great. He has been threatening to use a tracing agent, and I have met this guy and he looks like no nice guy, I don't trust him.


I will be moving house in 2 weeks anyway, planned for some time now, and when I do I want a fresh start so this evil man can not possibly find me.


Can someone advice on name change by deed poll, the .gov site is useless, no concrete steps to take.


Does't even sem to be a central body to go to? I found this site? Is it legit?



Everything you need to legally change your name in the U.K.



It appears you just have to copt and paste some words out and send to banks, dvla, councils etc??


Any advice welcome, I want to get this sorted today.

I sold 270 jewellery pieces to shop. Now threatening with small claims. - General Consumer Issues - Consumer Action Group


Yes, this guy is not sane, he is evil in my opinion, I can tell from his threatening emails. He is slightly psychotic - emailing me at 9/10pm ay night "I won't stop till you pay me back".



I just can't take that risk, I need peace of mind. Police calling me today to take a statement I think, I had to press charges as he had a text from the police to not harass me any more, and lo behold 7 hours later he's at it, and then relentlessly.


The .gov site is useless... Just gives you a kind of copy paste thing, but does not tell you what to do..



A deed poll recognises a change of name of an adult or child - make your own, use official forms, or get one through a specialist agency or...


I am reading in places it costs £42, but .gov mentions nothing.

You are entitled to change your surname any time you want and without any formalities. However it is better to register it. There is some system of registration but I'm not sure how it works or where you will find it.
This will allow you to satisfy various authorities for passports et cetera.

Deed poll only refers to your given names. They need to be changed by deed poll.

That's about as much as I know about the subject.

If you find further information then please do let us know.

I want to change my full name...

There is no clear direction on how to chnage by deedpol?

If I just chnaged my surname all I have to do is choose it and call banks, dvla, council etc and just tell my new surname? Seems odd?

Just checking, but how is this person harassing you? Is it by emails and text messages?


If so you can block the emails and text messages easily enough or change your email address and phone number which has to be easier than changing your name?

They (he) is becoming more and more threatening and aggressive.

I want to chnage name because he is threatening t use a trace agent, and I do not trust this thug as far as I can throw him. He's a grunt. I have to consider my own wellbeing now.

I spoke to DVLA on the phone, seems simple enough, they just asked for a deedpol certificate... but back at square 1, where does this magical certificare come from?

Seems to be no advice, just loads of scam companies online using HM logos.

The .GOV site just has this..



How to make your own deed poll

Use the following wording:

“I [old name] of [your address] have given up my name [old name] and have adopted for all purposes the name [new name].

“Signed as a deed on [date] as [old name] and [new name] in the presence of [witness 1 name] of [witness 1 address], and [witness 2 name] of [witness 2 address].

“[your new signature], [your old signature]

“[witness 1 signature], [witness 2 signature]”

A specialist agency or a solicitor can make the deed poll for you instead - they may charge a fee.

After you’ve made it, you can use your deed poll as proof of your new name.




Do you just print this off on some A4 laser paper and that's it? So confusing!

Right   - Some progress...

So there is no central agency who handles deedpoll, just a rag tag bunch of private companies who act as intermedieries.

It's just a case of choosing the best one.


The copy and paste info from .gov I posted above is like a lick of the stamp, does nothing, you need an 'official' cert by an 'official' company who probaly have some special gold stamp or something!


I found these guys..



How to apply There are just 2 simple steps to changing your name by Deed Poll You first need to apply for your Deed Poll documentation...


I am going to use these.


Now the fun part.... Choosing a name... You can be anything you want... Spider Man!

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

@mrk1 you say that the gov.uk site doesn't  say how to do it but this page gives you detailed instructions and the forms to use.







I'll bet that the company you are going to pay £33 to is just going to send you these. Which are free on gov.uk.


You also say that the £44 fee is not explained on gov.uk. But it is clearly explained as far as I can see. There is a difference between an "enrolled" and an "unenrolled" deed poll.


"Enrolled" means registered with the High Court. The court fee for enrolling a deed poll is £42.44. It is then on the public record.


Do some organisations insist on an enrolled deed poll? Banks? If so it will be on the public record anyone can find out your new name.


I agree with others that this seems a very convoluted way to deal with harassment. If this guy doesn't stop the police will eventually arrest him.


And I very much doubt that changing your name will prevent a trace agent finding you.
