    • Hi all my wife has today been accused of shoplifting a few weeks ago at John Lewis. Police called today and said an allegation has been made after viewing cctv. My wife has been invited in for interview to clear things up (there words) I asked how her how they knew how to find her, she admitted she had been caught before in Waitrose in 2018 and banned from them and JL. I can’t begin to tell you how shocked I am but I need to support her and don’t know where to turn. She has confessed to me that she has stolen the odd thing over the past year from JL and is now worried that they will look back and charge here for stealing all the items. The police say the allegation is for two small items of clothing. My wife of 40yrs  I know like the back of my hand has been through hell and has lost all her family over the past few years, she has serious health issues and is on strong medication. I can only put this down to this being a big factor. I really need to know what to do to help her, if she admits,  will it be dealt with on the spot or will courts be involved. Should she seek immediate legal advice or see the solicitor at the police station(that’s what they have offered) Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks for reading and I hope it’s easy to understand 
    • Thank you. BTW, who paid Arval's administration fee? Arval - who seem to be total idiots - refer to what was received as a "parking fine" or "penalty charge notice" when it is neither, it is an invoice from a private company.
    • Hi guys, Bought BMW a couple of weeks ago. Advertised as FSH (I have a copy of the advert) Got home, set the Idrive up, alass, no service history, only pre delivery inspection. Car is a 2019 with 77,000 miles. When viewing, I was also told it has just had a full service. Been chasing the garage and been fobbed off last week. We will send it you, blah, blah.   Sent hem a shirty text today saying if they do not sort it, I would go to Trading Standards. They just called saying they will take the car back. Thing is, I really like it and I want to keep it. Would would be the best outcome here, do I ask for money back? Or is the only real option taking the car back? It will pain me as ive paid insurance, tax, had it coded as it was playing up a little, filled oil and AdBlue. Its not much, but its just perfect for me.   Thanks in advance all.

    • 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.

Lowell/shoosmiths - Ordinary Cause Court Writ - for £7k pers loan


Recommended Posts

Hi,

looking for some advice please 

I have received quite a few letters from Lowell the amount is for £7000 and I’m based in Scotland (incase that makes a difference) the default date is only 12 months ago ago with original creditor 

this one I received on the 17/07/2023 that I ignored I will copy text here and then post the 2nd one that I just received recently just after this 

Thanks so much for your help again 

 

Dear 

You have not contacted us

You have not responded to our recent attempts to contact you. Please get in touch with our

team by 31/07/2023 to discuss your options for paying off what you owe.

 

Please don't ignore this letter

It's important that you do not ignore this letter. If you don't contact us, we'll review all the

available information, including a review of your credit file, to understand if you're a

homeowner and get an understanding of your financial situation. This will help us decide our

next step, which could include legal action.

Taking legal action would mean instructing solicitors to obtain a Decree to help us recover

what you owe. This could mean fees and interest are added which would increase your

outstanding balance. A Decree would be visible on your credit file for six years.

 

We'd prefer to avoid legal action and work with you directly, so please call our team today on

0333 556 5700. If you'd prefer to manage your accounts without talking to our team, you

can set up an affordable payment plan on our app or website.

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 this letter I just received …. And mentions being a home owner says they have looked at my credit report 

Dear 

What legal action means
Despite our attempts to contact you, you have not been in touch, or set a payment plan on your account(s).

We have therefore reviewed the information on your credit file and believe that you're a homeowner and we are considering taking legal action.


If we take legal action, this means:
• We will instruct solicitors to take legal action on one, or more, of the accounts listed above.
• A writ or summons dependent on the size of your balance would be issued by the Court demanding payment of the outstanding balance.
• Fees, solicitor's costs, and interest would be added to what you owe.
• If a Decree is granted, we may apply for an Inhibition on your house, which would prevent you from selling your property until you have paid, or apply for an attachment order on your wages, or request that a bailiff visits you at home.


It's not too late to set up a payment plan
It's important that you get in touch with us by 28/08/2023.

You can still avoid legal action by setting up a payment plan on our app or website, or by speaking to our team

Should I be sending a cca request or just wait ? 
 

thanks

Sure I will fill it out ASAP 

So at the moment I should just ignore till I get any legal paperwork through for my debts 

I will definitely keep this updated with all letters I receive as I hope it will help others  also 

The letters and calls and text messages are very stressful but I will do my best to not break

Until you answer the questions DX has asked, no one can advise you whether you should ignore or not.

What is the debt?

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Hi,

still not heard anything from other debts as ignored them fortunately my other case was dismissed as can be seen in past thread I did this with all your support much appreciated !!!

I had a heart attack I’m really trying to avoid stress at the moment and would just like to get rid of all this 

today I received 2 letters for different debts both credit cards that are with link financial

I have attached one

the other is actually a little higher I have not called them or requested a cca or prove it letter should I ?

Or just ignore for now just I thought if they say they will pass it on means they have to pass it on to Dentons who seem quite a large legal company 

thanks again for all your help 

the debts default are 2021 / 2022 

……….  Letter bellow debt is with link financial from credit cards ………

PAPLOC CAN ONLY be sent by surface mail

you NEVER EVER log in to any of these scammers online portals ever, nor ring/email nor send/respond to anything, simply invites pointless letter tennis.

they (A DCA) are NOT BAILIFFS and have ZERO legal powers on ANY debt.

Have you moved since taking out the the Credit card? That's Lowell's MO along with their pet solicitor Overdales.  Find people who have moved and make sure they receive a sneaky backdoor CCJ. This is easily remedied by sending them your current address by post.

Then all you need to do is relax secure in the knowledge that any claim form sent by Overdales can be batted away easily.

We could do with some help from you.

you're not grasping this again....

so you have moved within the time of the credits cards/whatever being taken out and today?

the owner of a debt, be that the OC or a DCA writing to any address is NOT proof they legally know you live there,

they are phishing letters to see if you respond.

then if you dont and you HAVE MOVED to where you are now from and old address,

they are quite legally entitled to file court papers to the old address = backdoor CCJ
