    • Hello, Im here in regards to a vodafone account from 2015. No payments made on the said vodafone from August 2015 Default Date 12th Dec 2015 . was left sat there untill it dropped off my credit file & thought no more of it . it did eventually drop off my credit file . all done & dusted & had no need to worry about my credit file. as if Vodafone would have written i would have sent them the SB letter.   so fast foward to yesterday 13/06/24 logged in to see my credit file & Bam vodafone appears same amount , same dates only thing that is different is instead of saying default its now on there as Delinquent !!! now my understanding was once a default drops from a credit file it cant be put back on or am i wrong ? so moving forward how would i deal with this ?   any help and advice would be great thank .   BTW i know the default date as back in 2019 i printed my credit report off , on that said report that i fished out today it gives me the default date , status history & Balance history.

    • 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, I wonder if anyone knows of any ways of contacting Ebay by email that isn't unmonitored or a telephone number that doesn't tell you to go online between disconnecting.


I'd be happy to go online if their website worked properly, but I end up going round in circles and giving up. 


I bought a jacket which I carefully measured against their sizing chart (coming from China), but it still came up too small. I requested a refund and went through the standard Chinese format of "give it to a friend/relative/passer by" and we'll give you 20%, 35% and then 50% but I refused. Ebay made them supply a prepaid FedEx label to return it. The parcel was rejected by two FedEx agents saying it could not be processed as the details were wrong and Ebay ordered them to put a proper label online, but they have sent the same label.


Ebay got annoyed with their attitude and told me "Congratulations, we have reviewed your case and found in favour of you. We will ensure you receive a full refund once the seller received the jacket back." I replied back and asked if the FedEx label was now valid and what export documentation did I need for China? This morning I received an automated reply telling me "our emails are not monitored."


That's why I need a valid email address, telephone number or some way of getting an answer to my questions.


Thanks for any help.

simple answer is forget ebay totally...go do a charge back to your bank.

Thanks, but whereever I look I can't find Disputes. I suspect this is because Ebay considers there is no dispute - they have ok'ed a refund, the seller has issued a label.


Ebay messaged me to say:

We have reviewed this case and decided in your favour. You should return the item to the seller for a refund. We're sorry you had a problem with your purchase.

You need to send the item back to the seller by 03 Mar, 2023 to receive this refund. You must send the item with tracking information. The seller's delivery address and postage instructions are available on the case details page. Please don't forget to enter the tracking information there. We'll issue you a refund once tracking details confirm that the item has been delivered to the seller.

This has a link that gives me two options - to add tracking details or close the case.


I just need to check the label is now valid and if any importation documentation is required to show what I am sending and its value.

I is a common problem with Chinese sellers that add a postage label that doesn't work so the return times out and they don't have the item back. 

You can message ebay through Facebook that does work. But normally customer service is easy to get through to via the contact us page, you might have to try at different times of the day to get through to someone in Ireland.

If all else fails as DX said do a chargeback via you bank or through Paypal if you used them

Hi, I have a business account that I can speak to them on but on my personal account I can only chat with the automated assistant , you can try that then you will have a record of the conversation.


Just found this link at the bottom of their contact page. You will need to be logged into your account to open the link:

I managed to have an online chat last week and would be more than happy with that.


I don't know where I am going wrong? 


1. I log in to my account.

2. I go to Help and Support

3. I select the item I am trying to return and get three options - view/change feedback, contact a seller or check status of return, which I select.

4. View Request Details.

5. Close case or add tracking details. There is a Help and Support option at the bottom of the page, but this will take me back to 2.


This website is so badly designed or is it just me?

Genius, so easy and obvious to everyone.


1. Login to Ebay 

2. Open Help and Support page

3. Scroll down to the bottom to Policies and open

4. Go all the way down to Have Us Call You Back


So obvious Ebay. 


Thank you, just_jue,

Just an update.


Some Chinese sellers really don't like doing refunds, do they?


They provided a valid tracking reference, but a fake barcode on the label. Then when Ebay forced them to the correct this, they highlighted the tracking number which blocks FedEx being able to process it.


So Ebay said on Friday, "No worries, for now, I will send an email to the seller  for them to send you a correct label until February 28 and I will hold the case as well. This is now a final warning to the seller. If they failed to send you a correct label, we will refund you without returning the item on March 1."


Thanks again to just_jue for showing me how to contact Ebay.
