    • I've had to hide your post. You've left your name, address, registration number as well as MET's reference all showing. Please redact the PCN and upload it again, following our upload guide.
    • Your best bet would be to ask your insurance company if they would still insure you for the car if it is written off 
    • I'd bet that you're being fobbed off by Tesco here. I can't for the life of me think why a landlord would foist parking restrictions on a rent-paying supermarket.  Parking is of no interest to the landlord whatsoever.  We've never seem such a set up.  It 's the supermarket that insists on restrictions.  indeed on the PCN it is stated that the car park belongs to Tesco. So e-mail the CEO of Tesco  https://www.ceoemail.com/s.php?id=ceo-9138&c=Tesco Plc-Group CEO Lay it on thick about being a genuine customer, attach any proof of payment, and point out that the BB bays were being abused by non-BB holders and so you had no choice but to park, briefly, in the wrong bay.  Request that they cancel the invoice. Some organ grinders - e.g. Asda - are superb at getting tickets cancelled.  Others - e.g. McDonald's - are worse than useless.  But it surely has to be worth a try,
    • You could still write to head office. I find that some supermarket managers do not have the authority to make these decisions. So rather than admit that they fob their customers off.  One would have thought that  as a regular customer H.O. would take that into consideration in dealing with you request.  Explain that there is a five minute Consideration period that has been ignored by UKPPO which is in breach of the Code of Practice that are supposed to observe. And as such they have breached your GDPR There is no need to appeal.  You already have enough knowledge to fight off their stupid claim as I pointed out on Post 2. They do not know who was driving and as long as you don't appeal they will have no proof to name who was driving in Court. You as keeper are not liable because the PCN is not compliant. You were only there for under four minutes with a five minute Consideration period.  They have no chance of winning should they go to Court. You have as near to an open and shut case in your favour. Why would you want to appeal.There is no mileage in it for them to accept your appeal especially as you did park where you shouldn't. You can totally ignore everything they send you  except if they send you a Letter of Claim. Then come back to us if they do and we will get you to send a suitably snotty letter which hopefully will change their mind about going any further. Go on with your life and don't worry. And we are always here if you wobble
    • Hello again,  Quick update regarding the situation.  I stopped receiving phone calls and texts from ICON Debt Collections. However, just like Ojm_1994 i received a text this morning stating ' Notice of likely CCJ/enforcement due to non-payment. please call our legal team urgently' and received an email which said the following;  'Further to our previous correspondence, our investigations indicate you continue to be linked at the following address according to the UK Database. XXX Following instructions from our client, we are now preparing to issue legal action against you. In the event of non-payment, we will apply to obtain a CCJ (County Court Judgment) against you, which will result in the High Court Bailiff attending the above address in an attempt to either secure payment or remove goods. Our Enforcement Team can be contacted on 020 8315 2400 or you can access your legal file via our website www.iconcollections.com by selecting MANAGE YOUR ACCOUNT to make payment by Debit or Credit Card. Please enter our legal reference number exactly as stated above along with your postcode to enter your account securely.' As stated above I'm going to continue to ignore these unless advised otherwise. I will keep this thread updated with any further information which may help other people in this situation.  Any further advice would be appreciated.  Thanks,  T

    • 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.

Defence

Firstly, I wish to state that I have received no correspondence whatsoever on this matter and I am deeply shocked and stressed to receive a court document in this way.

I have never been requested to repay any amount to Adidas, if I had done so I would have provided them with the information below which they can check on their own account.

On discussion with my bank and checking all my bank and card statements I have not received any such refund as described from Adidas.

On contacting Adidas for my membership details they sent me evidence of the following transactions on my account:

30th July 2021 I placed an order AUKxxxxx to the value of £441.80 for 11 items.

6 items were returned using Royal Mail label provided by Adidas with tracking DAxxxxx. 

5th August 2021 I received a refund of £190.70 on receipt of returned goods 

3 items were later returned using Royal Mail label provided by Adidas with Tracking DAxxxxx. 25th August 2021 I received a refund of £202.10 on receipt of returned goods

20th September 2021 I placed an order AUxxxxx to the value of £371.12 for 9 items, 7 items were returned using Royal Mail label provided by Adidas with tracking DAxxxxx. 24th September 2021 I received a refund of £335.37 on receipt of
returned goods

In summary, I placed 2 orders to the value of £812.92

Returned items on 3 occasions using Royal Mail labels provided by Adidas with tracking numbers above.

I received refunds on receipt of goods to the value of £728.17.

Therefore the information that is contained in this application is incorrect and I respectfully request copies of all details
submitted to the Court by the Solicitor in this claim and that this claim be rejected

I wouldn't worry too much about your defence not conforming to our standard defence your claim is different to say a credit card or loan type of claim there really isn't a right or wrong response...you have put them to strict proof to disclose otherwise, you have proof of what was credited what was returned.

 

It's now for the claimant to prove otherwise and will be very difficult that goods were not returned more of a case of not received which will involve third parties which is not your problem.

 

Await allocation now if they wish to proceed and if so, we can sharpen your defence into an effective witness statement.

 

Andy.

Just a question about when the 33 days would be taken from ?

Filed defence on 31st January so 33 days would have been 5th March

Received letter from court acknowledging defence on 3rd Feb, presuming Adidas got at same time 33 days would be tomorrow

Letter actually said they had 28 days which would have been 3rd March

 

Cheers
