    • Thanks for that info.  It's all a bit too 'high-tech" for him now though.  It's all happened very swiftly. He doesn't understand 'apps' on phones.  He's never been able to ring overseas from his landline.  He could only use WhatsApp to make international calls on his mobile. But Barc don't offer calls via WA.  He doesn't use a pc anymore.  He's 000s of miles away. And his new partner doesn't speak English!   And he now seems incapable of holding a proper conversation.    My experience in the last year of trying to deal with Barc on his behalf (lots of different matters) has been awful.  They are a nightmare. He was always like a child - which is why I helped. He has assets here. I've helped him with them.  But w/o his funds I can't.
    • I returned an item bought from nike online but I have still not received the refund back into my account. When I contacted nike they said that I need to contact evri as the parcel is not delivered back to the warehouse and they can't process refund until than. When I contact evri they say that since its been more then 5 days I need to contact the merchant to receive my refund. i dont know what i should do in this case that's why i have come here to get some advice.
    • hoho how did i know it's barclays.... clickme Programmable Search Engine CSE.GOOGLE.COM ultimately there is nothing he can do until they 'resolve' the issue but it will be resolved and sorted. barclays have numerous ways to communicate with them due to illnesses that remove vocal communication. the best is the barclays app which you install on his phone. or on his PC/computer /content/dam/lifestyle-images/personal/barclays-journal/di_moment_woman_hearing_aid_phone_3_1.large.medium_quality.jpg Ways to contact us when you have accessibility needs | Barclays WWW.BARCLAYS.CO.UK If illness or disability means you prefer to communicate with us in a particular way, we’ll do everything we can to help. they might just be wanting confirmation it was him and then the A/C will be opened. dx
    • It's Barclays.  I went in to see a manager who does know me and who also knows I was previously helping this guy.  Unfortunately this particular bank do not communicate by email or letter.  Only by phone with the account holder.  It was the 2 ATM withdrawals and 1 transfer that appear to have blocked the account.  He has no-one with authority in the uk to help. He gave me authority to help and use his account to manage his affairs/ pay bills etc - but not in the format the bank require - which is that he sits with me in a branch and fills out forms.  He can't do that. I didn't understand at first why he couldn't ring the bank. Now I do. Having tried to speak to him. He's incapable of talking properly.  Dementia.   I explained this to the manager.  But he said theres nothing I can do without PoA.    Anyway, it's very sad. And I'm very upset as I've known him since I was a teen  The fact you say the council can do nothing about CTax arrears is a reprieve
    • this is not making much sense but thats not usual for the threads from you... the fact that he is abroad and ill ? he cant use a phone..... he cannot easily communicate vocally so phone is out? fullstop? can he not use a chat online facility, most banks websites have them? can you not simply write to the bank and explain this? all banks must under banking rules have methods other that voice to communicate with them 24/7 do you know the reason why the account was blocked yet? is this bank a UK bank? if this has been going on for months now you should have logically already worked these things out for yourself.......

    • 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,

I have just joined, my main reason for joining is in 2017 I took out a £5000 loan with Halifax, and I believe it was loaned to me irresponsibly,

I was on a zero hour contract job at the time, and then around a month later I split up with my partner, to my knowledge, I have paid back over £5000 but I still owe around £4500, and I had a Halifax credit card with them which I owed over £5000 on

they are now on a stepchange debt management plan, but I now want to start making a complaint to them, my account was sold to PRA group, so I am wondering to I DSAR Halifax and PRA group?

Thank you

firstly, why are you blindly using a DMP company that just makes you pay your debts to a no powers DCA?

a dca is NOT A BAILIFF - and have zero legal powers on ANY debt - no matter what it's type.

if they dont hold a signed copy of your agreement..... you are being cash cowed. and they get free drinks on you every month down the pub.

stepchange etc etc cant be bothered with enforceability as the banks and DCA's fund them.

pers id dump stepchange now and do the DMP yourself, after you've sent a few CCA request 's off mind!

 

as for halifax and an IRL complaint....

if you cant prove your credit file was shot with defaults at the time and lots of other debt, then it will be a hard job.

 

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

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...

I am not sure regarding my credit file, at the time I know I had quite a lot of credit and it get a lot worse when I moved into a private rented house on my own,

I had taken out payday loans with lending stream and other providers and Halifax gave me money transfers off my credit card,

with regards to the DMP, I thought it would be better for my credit file in case I wanted to get a mortgage in the future, but I do not believe that to be the case anymore.

Moorcrofts clients are Very and 02

Wescots client is RBS 

 

I said before about I thought it would improve my credit, but obviously that is not the case, and when I want to get a private rented property (I am currently living with parents) but I believe this is not the case and there chance of taking me to court is slim to none it seems?
