    • 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 have been in contact with Overdales who were passed an old Sky debt from Lowell.

 

I last made a payment to Sky on 28/06/2017 and Overdales have threatened to take me to court. 
 

On the form they sent, I disputed the debt because I returned the Sky box and provided them with copy of a bank statement showing a transaction to the post office which was when I paid for the return of the box to the Sky equipment returns department. The box was returned because of a fault and there is evidence of a phone call that I made earlier in 2017 to try to rectify the problem.

 

I asked Overdales to provide me with evidence to prove that I owed the amount which is £328.

 

They have replied saying they don’t seem the post office transaction as evidence of me returning the box. There is also lots of others on Sky forums who returned Sky equipment to a company called Unipart who faced the same problem, the equipment was not logged as returned.

 

Today they have sent me a full personal data pack containing all letters they’ve sent to me and internal screenshots of my account etc.


can anyone offer any help? What are my next steps?

 

I can upload any documents if required.

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...

Yes, Lowell’s but now it’s been passed to Overdales however I think they are the same company somewhere along the line.

 

they sent me a letter of claim and I replied to it disputing the debt but I don’t think they’ve really taken my dispute seriously.

Overdales are lowlifes in house solicitors.

 

Just remember a DCA is not a BAILIFF and have ZERO legal powers on any debt no matter what it's type.

 

Yours is not the next move

and that's exactly what any judge will say,

 

you do ofcourse realise they are only doing this because it's almost statute barred?

and like 99% of people, you might be a mug that wets yourself and blindly coughs up?

 

there are 750'000 DCA speculative claimform's every year...

however you have a genuine dispute and proof.

 

research here not on the net!!

use our enhanced google searchbox.

 

not one here ever for a returned equipment debt

You are miles away from a CCJ in any case, it wouldn't even get to court.

You've done everything correct so far. Don't engage with the clowns over the phone OR email, keep everything in writing....these losers only go after the less well informed, as soon as you dig your heels in they slither back under their rock.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

If you ignore a claim form, then yes they'll get a CCJ by default, but you're not going to do that.

 

You've told them how it is, and as DX say's, yours isn't the next move, it is now up to them to provide the evidence that you owe this.

 

If you want to be pro active then start a complaint with Sky, and have them account for their actions and why they think it is acceptable to farm out customers information to tin pot clown outfits accusing you of owing money.

Pointless complaining to Lowlifes, it will only give them a delusions of grandeur and make them think they are making a difference in the world.

 

You could if you wish complain to Sky, but I fear that, even that will be about as much use as indicators on a submarine.

Hello, I’ve reopened this because I don’t know what to do next.

I’ve dragged things out as far as I can and have made a complaint to Sky about the equipment they allege not to have received back. Yet to receive acknowledgement of complaint or any other response from them.

I’ve told Lowell/Overdales about this and they keep putting my account on hold for 30 days.

I last made a payment to Sky on 28/06/2017.

I’ve always disputed I owe this.

Is it statute barred on 28/06/23?

I don’t understand the limitation period where it refers to default notice etc - I don’t actually think I’ve ever had a default notice.

Any help is appreciated

thank you

Thanks dx. Just printing the letter now but want to check something.

In the bundle of paperwork they sent me, it shows my agreement start date was 01/12/2016 with a minimum 12 month term.

Last payment date June 2017.

I returned equipment returned July 2017.

before I send this letter, just want to confirm that June 2023 is definitely statute barred, not December 2023?
