    • Thank you Emmzzi for your thorough response, that is extremely helpful. I will submit my schedule of loss using the suggested template. As I have to submit the form before I can speak with my solicitor, am I able to add on a generic phrase such as "plus any legal fees, to be determined"? Best Regards, Scott
    • There's lots of speculation in the weekend press about the timing of the election. One theory I could agree with is that it was a fit of pique because his charm offensive on voters hasn't made any difference at all with voters. I can also buy into the theory that he has a job lined up in California. So the daughters finish the summer term in the UK, have the summer holidays to settle into the house in California and start school over there in September. He has to hope he gets his green card back. I would love to see him lose the seat for Richmond but if he doesn't, what's he likely to do? Assuming the Tories don't win, is he going to resign as MP and let them have an immediate by-election or be a very part-time MP with a job 5,000 or so miles away?

    • Sunak dashed for July election because hopes of UK economic recovery are fading | General election 2024 | The Guardian WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM Prime minister knows economy is likely to be in even worse shape by autumn or winter, but summer’s good news won’t impress a battered public Agree with this article.  If the Tories could have held a tax cutting budget in Autumn 2024, they would not have gone for a July election. The economics are incredibly difficult for any party in Government. Massive debts have been piled up increasing the amount of interest being paid. I doubt the last National Insurance cut was really funded by funds available and relied on additional borrowing. And as Truss found out, borrowing to make tax cuts has consequences.

    • 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.

Advice please.

Letter received from RLP stating that they have proof of a family member scanning cheaper bar codes on a self scan till. Family member was recently challenged in store, denied the incident and left the store abandoning all shopping, verbally advised that they’re never to return. Police were not called.

They have not returned to the store since but have now received a letter stating that previous visits (can only assume they used the loyalty card to identify the person) have shown that they have proof of 20 plus till receipts with reduced items. Family member has admitted to me that they have on occasions used a cheaper barcode but they don’t believe it to be as often as they’re stating. 

Family member is worried sick but more so that they’re unsure if the store will report to the police( incident in store happened 3 weeks ago), letter received 1 week after. Family member replied to letter from DLP by email disputing the claim but said they would consider paying a reduced fee to avoid further letters (they regret replying now but panicked). The company responded requesting an offer is put to them for consideration. They have provided as estimate value per transition ie £40 each transaction plus all their additional charges.

When would it be likely that the store would report the incident to the police?  

It likely they have evidence if they’ve been able to provide RLP with online receipts.

Should they block emails and ignore any further correspondence?

Or pay?  

If they pay do some of the funds go back to the store so they’re reimbursed financially?

 

Family member is very remorseful and this has given them the shock they needed not to do this again.

Thank you for your reply. 
 

I have researched RLP forums and can see that the advice is to ignore.

 

I can’t see any posts where someone has responded to them and gave them anything to go on and to then ignore them.  Would she be in more trouble for doing this?

 

Is it likely that the store have reported and provided the Police with CCTV following her being stopped by the store manager?  My family member is feeling very unwell with worry and has considered presenting herself at the police.

 

Shes not able to state how often or do what value of goods that she has been deceitful with but at times she was visiting the store daily.

My family member is feeling very unwell with worry and has considered presenting herself at the police. - no police cant now be involved ever, store wont waste 100s hours trawling CCTV. FORGET ABOUT IT.

as we do with most of the shopliftin threads,... best to go see her doctor...it's a cry for help..

I have shared your response with my family member.  

 

She has stated that RLP have informed her that their client has CCTV footage that puts her at the self service tills and have linked them to the debit card transactions where there are numerous items shown as reduced.  The same reduced barcode for a small value was used each time.

 

It is likely that they may have already trawled through the CCTV before stopping her.  Is it likely that they may still involve the Police with the evidence they have? They did not detain her on the day she was stopped.

police were not involved at the time, so cannot now, nor would they ever have been interested in the 1st place in getting involved.

seriously, they, as the store are only interested in the organised gangs that carry out mass shoplifting to fund further criminal acts.

 

members of joe public, even if they confess to multiple previous events or even if multiple events might be prevalent, are not on stores' radar, it does the stores no favour at all, to compound, what is probably understood through decades of dealing them, to take things further. it's hoped it's dealt with by the person with their family or professional help like a GP.  they recognise it's a cry for help.

 

please, totally ignore the very cleverly worded letters people like RLP and DWF send out, if read their letters CAREFULLY, you'll actually see , just like letters you get from DCA's, that they never say WILL anywhere....every other word BUT that one.

 

it's a scam, the retailers dont see a penny of anything you pay RLP/DWF, their staff run straight down the pub, just like a DCA does if you pay them ANYTHING.

 

tell her to move on..

The letter she has received now is from a company called Scott & Mears, this is following receipt of numerous text messages and other letters from them.

They have stated that this is the last opportunity to pay the debt at 75% of the value.  

Otherwise their client will consider legal action.
