    • So @theoldrouge * Are reform suspending farage for his putin apologist propaganda pieces? - Which he has doubled down on * Are you going to condemn antisemitic bigoted racism from your right wing  bigots? In effect, are you two going to look up from your gutter and follow labors lead?     "Farage (a “pub bore” who has no grasp of the complexity of “finding international solutions to problems”) - did not say that both Sweden and Finland, Nato’s latest two members, decided to join only after Putin ordered the full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Finnish ex-Prime Minister Alexander Stubb said joining the alliance was a “done deal” for his country only as soon as Russian troops invaded Ukraine. Their membership more than doubled the Russian border with Nato. For Sweden, their decision to join ended more than two centuries of neutrality, such was the threat posed to them by Russia."   Simple fact - Russias invasion of Ukraine forced Finland to join NATO - doubling Russias border with NATO countries.

    • 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.

Received a letter re Tax credit overpayment from 2010-14 - sar had no data! *** Written Off***

Hi

I'm hoping someone can give me some advice re. the above.

I received a letter a few weeks ago saying that I had been overpaid a total of just over £4000 in tax credits.  I did reply asking for proof of these overpayments and a SAR

All I've received so far is a reply to my letter  just stating the amounts owed and to ring them to organise repayment, and from the SAR I received a single page letter with 6 phone calls that were made back then.

My questions are why have they left it so long to pursue this? And do they not have to provide any proof at all as any records I had have long gone? I would be astounded if thats the case because they could go after any tom,dick or harry for whatever they want!

Many thanks in advance 👍

some old phonecalls are not proof you owe anything.

I've received another letter from HMRC repeating what they stated in the previous one.

I've replied stating that I dont consider one sheet of paper with 6 recorded phone calls on it proof or evidence that I owe this money so just knocked it back in their court. 

I have said that I'll be making a formal complaint so as to start the process of getting an adjudicator involved if needed. 

I'll update this thread as and when so that it might help someone else dealing with this people.

there is a well documented period whereby HMRC farmed out debt collection and the only notes are from these 'scam' telephone calls by a DCA to supposed debtors.

there is rarely any data to prove what the dca was claiming.

this is still ongoing.

A few weeks ago I received a full SAR response which included all letters, notices etc.

I've searched through them and cant find any copies of notices of overpayment which I'm lead to believe that they are supposed to provide within one month of the claim closing.

I've also raised a first tier complaint pointing this out but all I got back was yet another letter stating the amounts I allegedly owe blah blah blah.

I've now (hopefully) raised a tier 2 complaint asking them once again for evidence of these overpayments, not just their belief that I do, and hopefully get to put my case in front of an independent adjudicator.

All I want is evidence of these overpayments, not just their say so 😕

I thought I'd open this thread again to let others in a similar situation know what has happened since my tier 2 complaint.

I received an email today from an independent adjudicator. I've included the most relevant responses and, as you can see, I was successful in my complaint 👍

"It is clear there were unacceptable delays in us contacting you about your overpayments
and replying to your complaint. This poor service led to unnecessary worry and distress. I am sorry for this and to apologise for the concern caused"

"On 12 February 2024 the tax credit system automatically written off all of your outstanding tax credit overpayments"

Hopefully this will help inspire others to keep going and fight your case. 😊
