    • One of the CCA's is now with PRA Group, as far as I can make out it started with CSL, then went to Aktiv Kapital, then I got a letter from CSL and now it seems that it's back with PRA. In addition PRA Group ltd recently transferred the account to PRA Group UK Portfolios ltd. This is the company that sent back the £1.00 PO saying that they don't charge a fee for supplying acct details. Also I read online that it's not a good idea to sign the CCA request as this gives them a copy of my signature.

    • the councils notice to owner wasnt even addressed to YOU at your home address as the named driver.  the NHS should have responded to it naming you to the council as the leaser THEN the council should have sent YOU new PCN to your address this resets everything back to £25 if paid within 14 days, else £50...NOT £159. i will guess they didn't? so you neither saw nor got the YELLOW PCN sticker envelope from the windscreen of you car at the time of the offence, nor were sent one later in the post, this PCN is probably appealable -  use the forms i pointed too above (ONLY do this if you def never saw/got a PCN dont appeal if you did) lie )  now as for the bailiff ...you said earlier: what cause you to ring the bailiff? you must have gotten the Notice Of enforcement through your letterbox NOT a txt or phonecall.  lastly... the NHS where you are should NOT BE DOCKING YOUR WAGES FOR UNPAID COUNCIL PCN's (if thats what this code 236 is in your lastest PDF?) if you've a union there id go have a chat with their legal rep. anyway look im not being funny but you seem all over the place so we cant really rely upon just today's story .... with CCJ's toll fees  PCN's wages being docked  and poss debts too? you must be all over the place...hence the pirate ship comment. if you want help with all of it. get your head together on each problem start a thread on each (even debts) and WE WILL HELP. just before i go. it makes me laugh a finance company arnold clarke paid a toll fee £2.20+£32 admin fee + £20 their FEE... have you always had the same car since last summer? thats totally bonkers for them to even be involved in.

    • 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.
