    • Starmer cosying up to right wing outliers and Brexitish (who seem to be just pointing the fingers away from themselves for the failures resulting from what they financed and promoted) to the outrage of huge swathes of the party is a real problem IMO - probably the main thing that could generate vast quantities of 'I'm not voting' among regulars   Looks like hes taking the core for granted and embedding himself in the 'they have nowhere else to go fallacy' - well they may decide the else is redundant and they simply have nowhere to go

    • I started paying her old council tax as they said they would jail her I managed to get those account details. We then got back together she moved in with me stopped me going to my house. Eventually let me back in I was there 4 days then the police showed up at 1am arrested me for 8 different offences. On the morning I was in custody she rang the letting agent and asked for the house to be changed to her sole name as I was in jail. The house was changed to her name I was made homeless. The bills she did not change to her name left them as occupier the utility companies then said I had to pay as there was lots more usage than an empty property. My solicitor said if I don't pay them I will be reported for it. It has since turned out that in her old property she didn't pay the bills. The electric bill she put in her daughter's name then cancelled the direct debit the council tax she never attempted to pay. Due to one of the accusations I have since been told I need to pay these bills even after getting emails saying I'm not liable for the bills. I have forwarded these on to the police and solicitors and had no reply. Other than you have to pay these bills. I'm also going to end up paying the bills where she lives now as once again they are not being paid. I can't go in to detail about the case as I'm due to be charged next week not sure what with yet but the police have told me I'm going to be charged.  My ex will not tell me nor can tell me about her debts as she doesn't want me to know how much debt she is in or has put her daughter in once she turned 18. I do not want to be paying her debts after what she has done to me.

    • 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 CAG team, 

 

I’ve recently seen a few advertisements requesting that i check my eligibility for a refund for unaffordable credit with the very group.

 

I am fairly certain I would be eligible but I was wondering the process involved, I couldn’t see a thread on here so thought I would start a new one!

 

cheers

Have you raised a complaint with Very about them providing credit that you could not afford, due to insufficient checks on your ability to afford repayments ?

 

The advertisements are presumably from companies that are hoping to make money from the process of trying to claim money back ?  And they would take a percentage of any money refunded.

 

What are the reasons you would state in your complaint to Very ?

 

Do you have copies of all information to help you make your complaint ?

 

If you don't have enough information, the first step may be submit an SAR to Very.

We could do with some help from you.

Steer clear of any company offering this sort of service.  Tell us more about your debt here, and we may be able to help you work through this on your own.

Thank you both for your reply!

 

@unclebulgaria67I haven't as of yet, I thought I'd get some advice on here first. I have just sent very my SAR so I will expect a response within a couple of weeks.

 

@London1971 

I think i could form a very strong and just complaint.

 

During my early adult life i became a very good (excuse the pun) Very customer, and throughout this time they rewarded me with a ridiculously high credit limit which wasn't relative to how much i was earning at that time and the state of my credit file.

 

I seem to remember the credit limit being in excess of £5,000 but i will be able to confirm when the SAR is returned.

 

At the same time, from 2013 - 2016 I was using payday loan services (such as QuickQuid and Wonga) in order to keep up with the repayments to Very, despite this, the credit limit kept increasing.

 

At the same time as this i was increasing my overdraft when possible and applying for credit cards in order to move money around.

 

I have confirmation emails from the payday loan firms at the time and can submit these as part of my complaint.

 

What are you thoughts?

 

Would you say this is grounds for a complaint?

no!!

 

though you might well have reverse claims of irresponsible lending against the pdl companies!!though most have gone by the wall now as £10m's reclaimed and won.

 

 

never seen anyone with a case of irresponsible lending on a catalogue company (rolling credit - its not a loan!)

its a catalogue account.

 

those adverts are a scam, as it automatically inserts credit card or a bank name in the next advert

 

never ever use a CMC!!

 

do irl claims yourself its free!!

Yeah i did investigate a claim against QuickQuid and Wonga years ago but I was too late and they are now defunct.

 

So are you saying that there is no point in pursuing a complaint/claim for irresponsible lending against Very? 

 

I am aware that it was not a loan that i was being given although it was credit, thank you for this information despite it reading like you are speaking at me rather than too me.

 

What is a CMC?

 

I am investigating doing an IRL claim, this is why i am here posting on this board to see if anyone has done this before and if it is worth doing

Posts made here are designed to generally help everyone, as they stay forever. 

 

Unless you have copies of your credit report showing you had numerous defaults registered at the time of each spending limit increase, you are going to have a hard time proving IRL 

 

The rest of your evidence might not cut it alone without that. There is also the 3yrs rule they will cite, which is difficult to get around, that you reasonably knew you could claim anyway, but didn't 

 

The other thing that won't help you is taking out other credit to feed the balance, you did that not forced by very to do it 

 

You can't use bad personal financial decisions on an innocent creditor, when to all intent and purpose, you were paying them ok nor raising concerns them to then 

 

Hard rock to crack

Never defaulted fortunately.

 

What can i say, i was young and dumb at the time. If someone is giving you money to spend, you spend it!

 

Noted, thanks again for your input. I'll not proceed any further with a claim or complaint.
