    • be very wary upon what you see being recently posted on here 😎 regarding KIH.... all is not what it seems...  
    • 1st - all my posts on CAG are made not only in reply to the specific issue the topic starter makes but also in a general matter to advise any future readers upon the related subject - here it is kings interhigh online school. KIH lets take this topic apart shall we so readers know the real situation and the real truth...and underline the correct way to deal with KIH. https://tinyurl.com/ycxb4fk7 Kings Interhigh Online School issues - Training and Apprenticeships - Consumer Action Group - but did not ever reply to the last post.  but the user then went around every existing topic here on CAG about KIH pointing to the above topic and the 'want' to make some form of group  promoting some  'class action' against KIH . then on the 2nd march this very topic this msg is in was created. all remarkably similar eh? all appear to be or state..they are in spain... ....as well as the earlier post flaunting their linkedin ID, (same profile picture) that might have slipped through via email before our admin killed it.., trying to give some kind of legitimacy to their 'credentials' of being 'an honest poster'....oh and some kind of 'zen' website using a .co.uk  address (when in spain- bit like the Chinese ebay sallers) they run ... and now we get the father of the bride ...no sorry...father of a child at the uk-based international school in question posting ...pretending to be not the 'other alf... do you really think people are that stupid..... ................... nope you never owed that in the 1st place... wake up you got had and grabbed the phone - oh no they are taking me to court under UK jurisdiction...and fell for every trick in the book that they would never ever put in writing that could be placed in front of a court operating under their stated uk jurisdiction wherever you live. T&C's are always challengeable under UK law this very site would not exist if it were not for the +£Bn's bank charges reclaiming from 2006> and latterly the +£Bn's of PPI reclaiming both directly stated in the banks' T&C's were they claimed they were legally enforceable ...not!! they lost big time... why? a waste of more money if you've not got a court claim....... why not use them for a good outcome...go reclaim that £1000 refundable deposit you got scammed out of . people please research very carefully ...you never know who any of these people are that are posting about kings interhigh and their 'stories' they could even be one of their online tutors or a shill . don't get taken in. dx      
    • @KingsParent thank you for sharing your experience.  I also tried contacting the CEO but didn’t get very far. Do you mind sharing his contact details?  kind regards   
    • Thank you Rocky for the clarifications though they did cause a problem at first since an original windsccreen ticket was  of a different breach some time before. The current windscreen ticket only states that you were parked there for 6 minutes which is just one minute over the minimum time allowed as the Consideration period. There is no further proof that you parked there for any longer than that is there? More photographs for example? Moving on to the Notice to Keeper-it does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4. First there is no parking period mentioned on it. there is the time 20.25 stated which coincides with the W/S ticket but a parking period must have a starting and finishing time-just one time is insufficient to qualify as a parking  period as required in Section 9 [2] [a] . Are there any different photos shown on the NTK comapared to the w/s PCN? Not that that would make a difference as far as PoFA goes since the times required by PoFA should be on the NTK but at the moment Met only appear to show that you stayed there for 6 minutes. Another failure to comply with PoFA is at S9([2][e] where their wording should be "the creditor will (if all the applicable conditions under this Schedule are met) have the right to recover from the keeper so much of that amount as remains unpaid; ". You can see on your NTK that they misssed off the words in brackets. Met cannot therefore transfer the charge from the driver to the keeper. Only the driver is now liable. Then their is the discrepancy with the post code on the NTK  HA4 0EY which differs from the post code on the contract and the Post Office Postcode Finder which both list it as HA4 0FY. As you were not parked in HA4 0EY the breach did not occur. In the same way as if you were caught speeding in the Mall in London, yet you were charged with speeding in Pall mall London [a street nearby] you would be found not guilty since though you were speeding you were not speeding in Pall Mall. I bow to Eric's brother on his reasoning on post 12 re the electric bay abuse  That wording is not listed on their signs nor is there any mention on the contract of any electric charging points at all let alone who can park there or use them. He is quite right too that the entrance sign is merely an invitaion to treat it cannot form a contrct with motorists. Also the contract looks extremely  short no doubt there will be more when we see the full Witness statement. As it stands there is no confirmation from Standard Life [or Lift !] on the contract that Savills are able to act on their behalf. Also most contracts are signed at the end of the contract to prevent either side adding extra points. So their percentage  chance of winning their case would be somewhere between 0.01 and 0.02.

    • 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!

I received a couple of emails from CLI chasing what I believe is a creditcard debt (but it dosent really say).

I ignored them, and now I have received a threat letter from them a bout doorstep collection

Now I know I could probably just continue to ignore them, but I rather not let them turn up as it would be embarrassing for my wife. Is it advised that I email them, telling them that I do not recognize this debt and it's up to them to prove it? (the post just arrived and it was apparently sent 6 days ago, they threaten 7 days for doorstep)

Any advise helpful!

Never contact a powerless DCA, why would would you waste your time and energy?

Instead, educate the others in your household to film the doorstepper and to ignore their questions and keep repeating 'leave or I'll call the Police' - if they open the door, far better to just leave them standing there.

Post up the details of the debt.

I just really don't want them to come around, it's a quite sensitive situation. 

So just wondering if I can just ask them to bugger off, I had a case years ago where they got to pre-action protocol and I asked them to come with copy of the terms and conditions, went quiet after that. So a "prove it" request or similar perhaps.

The amount they want is around 2200 odd.

So this is a foreign debt.

Which country and when did you last make any payment?

If the debt is still live and not unenforceable due to limitations law, you would just write to the Bank owed the money, providing your UK address and ask them to provide copy of last statement , plus any default notice they have issued.

CLI are different to other debt collectors, as they provide a basic service only. It would be up to the Bank whether they wanted to go to Court to enforce the debt.

Sending prove it letter won't make any difference, as the doorstep collectors are just  commission only enquiry agents, who are provided a list. Just because they mention this, does not mean a visit will take place.

Hi Ninja, for real tailored advice - post up the details:

- what type of credit

- when you took it out

- who owns the debt a DCA or the original creditor.

- who you are paying now/when you last paid

- amount owed

As for doorstepper threats - they rarely come (debt type depending)

So the debt is most likely credit card, although they are just referring to another debt collector in a Scandinavian country they are collecting on behalf of. (Intrum Capital).

I moved nearly 10 years ago , and have  not paid anything or dealt with any of then in that time. I know the creditors can "renew" the statue barred status in the country every 10 years , but I'm not sure they have done so. I believe (even though I'm not sure what debt they would be referring to) would be that old.

I really just want to deal with any visitors. Reading this forum it's unclear if they have ever visited a property looking at previous posts from this company.

whats intrum doing chasing a Scandinavian debt?

CLI dont do doorstepping.

they've no licence to do so in the uk.

if you read the email and letter PROPERLY. 

it does not say WILL anything.

and anyway how do they even know you read old email addresses

its a scam IGNORE them block and bounce their emails

have you moved around in the UK?
might be an ideato simply write to intrum giving your correct address in writing from you

you dont want a backdoor CCJ if you have moved around.

  • dx100uk changed the title to CLI Letter - Threatening Doorstep

Hi dx, 

You are correct the letter (which is my current address) is saying "Notice of personal visit".

"Please accept this letter as notification that we have are now (nice grammar there!) turning this matter to our doorstep collection agents as a final attempt to discuss this matter with you.


Unless you contact us within 7 days, a doorstep collector will be instructed to visit you at the above address on a regular basis until contact has been stablished, and a final attempt to achieve an amicable arrangement for the repayment of the above debt has been made. Our door step collection agents carry out out visits between 8.00am and 8.30pm Monday to Friday, blah blah blah.

Our doorstep collection agent is instructed to collect the full amount due or to compile a report about your financial situation to justify a repayment agreement. Our agents carry out identification and receipts will be issued for all payments. "

The Creditor that CLI is mentioning is named Intrum Capital AS.

Pretty sure they have my current address as it's updated in the national registry. 

I just want to make sure that these clowns do not come around here, I am tempted to write to them to tell them I do not recognise the debt and also in any case, it would be statue barred and hopefully that will make them think that it's not worth chasing.

Only Pretty sure? not worth a backdoor ccj though.

As dx says, update address.

I'm sure they will be quick to let you know more about the alleged debt, because you don't sound convinced that you know, and you definitely should want to know.

You then defend accordingly, likely with statute bar based on your description but we are all guessing, including you.

Good luck

it doesnt matter if you think they have it.. BS.

if YOU have never written to whomever the card was taken out with nor owned the debt since they can quite legally file to an old address,,,then you will have REAL bailiffs at your door.

dont guess protect. intrum are sneaky buggers and WILL do it by the backdoor even if it is SB. northants bulk is a robocourt no human sees or checks anything.

but dont enter into silly letter tennis by prove it or otherwise.

have you checked what is the sb date/rules in scanny?

Not rubbish, basically the general limitation is 3 years, however if they have taken steps to claim through the courts/bailiff (in Norway anyway) they can extend up to another 10 years. What I am not sure of, is if they can get that extended again after a certain period, or as I am not living there anymore they can't really go through that system.

 

See a translation of the law here: 

JUSINFO-NO.TRANSLATE.GOOG

Hvis fordringshaver har vært uviten om fordringen eller hvem/hvor skyldneren er, vil det kunne være urimelig at kravet allerede skal være foreldet etter den

But in Norway, same as most countries, the debt owner has to go to court within the limitations period, as part of normal process to gain a judgement.  Once they have got the judgement, they then could be allowed more time to try to enforce the debt.

You have not mentioned a court judgement in Norway.  So in the absence of a judgement, they can't then make a court claim in the UK to try to enforce the debt here.

Just write to Intrum confirming your current address and advise them to stop trying to contact you, as the debt is stature barred under limitations laws.

We could do with some help from you.

blimey, i know we are a uk site and we deal with foreign debts too, but yep..that's complex.......

i agree anyhow, and had already thought of just write from your current address and state it's statute barred.

let the scammers try and wriggle out of it..that will be interesting...to read their drivel.

Ok, but if the case is that they had been given a judgment through the bailiff (not necessarily courts as such in Norway) either around the time I left/while I lived there/or shortly after.

I assume the clock has still ticked and such should still be SB.

i will guess that as in most other countries, a court claim be it successful or not typically halts the sb clock.

 

i think p'haps you are getting a wee bit too deep into ifs or buts here that no debt buyer will relly understand nor go near a courtroom door with a barge pole.

its only a scamming foreign dca debt buyer chasing you, they have zero powers and and even less than if it was a debt in this country and a uk based dca.

So ask for a copy of the records related to any actions by the original creditors or bailiffs.  

You are a bit in the dark here, but based on a large volume of these type of posts to this site, I would say that for the amount of debt being fairly low, I very much doubt any court or bailiff actions have been taken in Norway.  If that had been the case, the debt owner would have traced you to the UK and then started court actions to have the debt enforced in the UK.

Write to Intrum with your UK address and advise that as far as you are aware any debt is statute barred under limitations laws. And it is up to them to provide any proof by supplying relevant documents if they don't believe the debt is stature barred.

We could do with some help from you.

As an aside these 'doorstep ' people are a joke, I had one call around on me for an old debt that had gone statute barred, she asked me when the loan was taken out and I told her 2011, she rolled her eyes and apologised, said I wouldn't be bothered again.

So the plot thickens, CLI has told me that they will not do any doorstep, and provided a couple of documents (debtletters would be the correct translation I would assume) that I apparently signed in 2008, so over 14 years ago!

Lindorff has apparently been involved at some point too. They said they would check with the customer and see if they said it was statue barred. I would be interested to let them challenge that here in the UK anyway, which I doubt they will. 

 

Let's see what the outcome is from this and I will ask for more advice when they come back

So, I have response from the creditor (through CLI) "

"The file is not statue barred. There are two distrains after the debenture, the latest is dated 20.11.2013 which gives us additional ten years on the file. Please see attached.

Limitation date is therefore: 20.11.2023"

Along with copies of two scanned documents, one dated in 2012 and the other dates 20.11.2013 from the bailiff (in Norwegian). 

So it seems they claim the statue barred will be going until 20.11.2023. 

What could my options be here? I still have not said I recognize this debt so they can't claim I have acknowledge it. CLI is ofcourse asking when I will pay (either through payment plan or a final sensible offer), I bet they bought it for 10% or lower. 

I still have not received any contract of the original product, just a debt letter. Can I ask for the orginal terms and conditions of the product in English? November is not far off..

ignore them unless or until you ever get a letter of claim now,

which they must send.

that takes at least 2 mts to go thru before they can issue a court claim.

by then it'll be sb'd under scanny laws too.
