    • 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.

A friend of mine came to me for advice. She had a Quick Quid loan in 2018 where she missed a couple of payments. Then QuickQuid went bust and heard nothing. Now she has had an email from Lantern Finance demanding payment for the full amount.

Not sure how to advise her as in my book Quick Quid were a paper asset only so is worthless therefore had no assets.

Whilst the debt book might have been sold off surely the original contract is with a defunct company and either way if this buying of debt is legal then surely it must be for the reduced amount that the debt collector bought it for?

Advise needed please as they are threatening to send someone in and she is terrified!

doesnt work like that.

i will have a good guess that she has moved since she took this out and failed to inform QQ or the stated owner of the debt on her credit file that she has, thus leaving the only method of comms being the original email address at the time of sign up.

if this is true she needs to write to lantern immediately (and to the owners of any other old debts she last paid/used in say the last 7yrs) informing them of her new address with ref to (their ref number, original creditor (OC) xyz etc) else she stand a very big danger of a backdoor CCJ.

debt buying is quite legal (the biggest financial industry there is) and as the buyer inherits all the OC's signed up to rights, they are quite entitled to chase the full sum owing not what they paid for the debt (10p=£1typ).

dont forget a DCA is NOT A BAILIFF

and have

ZERO legal powers on any debt.

BUT if you've not updated an address and they legally file a CCJ to an old one - as Northants Bulk is totally automated - then no human checks anything = guaranteed backdoor CCJ = default judgement.

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...

Thanks for the reply dx100UK.

I still don't get how Lantern can do this. Hypothetically, if I did a load of work for Quick Quid and they didn't pay me because they went bust I'd lose the money they owe me. Sure I'd be a creditor but highly unlikely to get anything back. So I'm at a bit of a loss to understand why when they go bust the situation isn't reversed? Sorry to appear a bit daft but it doesn't stack up.

I still don't understand how a bankrupt company can sell off a debt and the buyer of that debt can pursuit her for it. The original contract was with Quick Quid not Lantern so why is it legal as you state for them to hound her for it for the full amount? It just doesn't sound right to me!
