    • Done! Thanks again. Will update the thread accordingly.
    • Thank you for your message.  I'm concerned that by complaining to the IPC, and escalating the situation, PCM would be even more inclined to cause problems for me and take action to the fullest extent just to make an example of me.  I can still take the above action as a backup plan if PCM decides to go ahead.

    • 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.

Hello forum,

this is not a request for something to do, it's well explained all over this forum, just want to share a case and add some considerations.

Timeline:

Contacted by a sale representative of Ansys by email (contacts taken from internet website and social networks), located in Europe, attaching a pdf letter intimating the illegal use of Ansys for several years, asking to review the letter in 7 days.

Nothing to hide, I consider myself a polite person, I replied denying all and asking for what he called "evidence".

He asked for a meeting, this was denied, I have no time to waste.

After some more exchange of emails he sent a single log line (saying it was part of the full log) with an ip address, geographical coordinates and an image of google maps.

Replied one more time, last time, reiterating what I were writing in previous emails.

---

Now waiting for a contact from solicitors, and of course all future communications will be ignored.

---

Considerations:

- In my specific case the ip address is not belonging to me (their target)

- Even if the ip address was mine, it's not even relevant in a possible lawsuit; there are very serious past cases in my Country, not relevant to copyright, which stated that it's not possible to link a person to an ip address

- Their logs have no value: logs are txt files and unless of property of a third party legal entity they are simply text files and who knows if they have been altered..

- Even if the logs are authentic I'm quite sure I could be able to sniff the authentic sent packets, forge my own with fake data and send to their piracy control system

- Mac addresses were still not shared; like ip addresses they have even less importance, they can be spoofed or, even more, they can be changed for virtual adapters

- Even if they open a case, most probably they will open it in the court where their company resides (US?); the law, in my Country, says that the case must be opened in the Country of the defedant; they state that the user accomplished to their terms and conditions of their contract when the user installed the pirated copy; however, a sentence in the UK stated that the contract inside a pirated copy has no value and cannot be considered valid

- Do they know what is GDPR? if they can track users, and they can (till now, I know they grab ip addresses and they use wifi tracking), they can be reported to the privacy guarantor in Europe, and I think in UK too..

- Just to give you some "numbers": Ansys sent in this year (2023) an average of 3,5 emails with letters attached per day.

---

All of this was before reading this forum.

 I will update this post for more information on how the situation will evolve, just to have a complete report of this.

 

Special thanks to dx100uk

Hello all,

following this thread I opened about one year ago:

I waited a year before posting again about this, because sometimes you can find similar discussions but with no follow up, and when someone receives such email may go into panic and wants to read something comforting.

Well, my last email to that 'kind person' was dated may 2023 and it said that the ip address was not belonging to my company, nor to any person working in my company, and that I didn't know how they could link geographical coordinates to my company.

My last sentence was that they could request to the internet provider releasing that ip address name and surname of the owner, and that they would find that it didn't belong to my company (and btw...this was the truth).

I also added that I had to report him to local authorities if he continued to write to me or to any of my colleague. STOP.

He still replied that geographical coordinates are provided by wifi triangulation.

Pathetic...this email had no reply from me.

From then, no new email from these people.

So advices are still valid, ignore totally.

I agree, but why not?nothing to hide from my part. Obviously, this is valid for a couple of mails, once I explained my reasons there's no need to further discuss 😛
