    • 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.

Reddam House Berkshire Ltd T/A King's Interhigh/ACT letter of claim - Online Schooling Fees after Cancelling

Hi, any update with this case.

I am also a victim of Kings Interhigh.

I signed a contract for my daughter for Year 10 (last semester), Feb to July 2022. I paid for it.

Then suddenly my daughter changed her mind about online schooling and we ask to cancel our account on August of 2022.

However Kings Interhigh said I should have cancelled it by July of 2022 for no payment.

Since I cancelled it on August 2022 then I should pay the whole amount of £4835.

The start date of class was Sept 13, 2022.

Please advise.

Thank you

I received a letter from ACT credit management, representing Kings Interhigh online school.

I need to reply in 30 days or else they will escalate it to the court.

Here is the story.

We came here in UK with my family in July of 2021. My daughter was going to Year 10 that time.

Unfortunately, she suffered a culture shock on her first few days of school and became depressed.

She did not want to go to the normal school during that time.

for her to continue to study without going to normal school, I enrolled her on the online school and I found Kings Interhigh.

I enrolled her on around Feb of 2022 and got accepted.

I paid the registration fee of £50 and the schedule start date was Feb 28, 2022.

I paid £2250 upfront for the payment of 2nd semester (Feb to July 2022).

I also signed the contract on around Feb 5 of 2022 without reading all the terms and conditions as I was only focus for her to start her study.

For me, the £2250 was expensive but I have no choice as I did not want my daughter to be idle at home and depressed.

After the end of the term, we had still plan to continue her online study, however around the end of August or early September, she decided to go back to normal school, I enrolled her in the same previous normal school she was enrolled before and was still accepted. 

Then, I emailed Kings Interhigh and saying we are cancelling the online school.

I think it was around 2 weeks or 1 week before the start of the class.

Start of the class is September 13, 2022.

I thought it was okay as the class was still not starting and I still did not put any deposit or paid in advance.

However, Kings interhigh told me that I still need to pay the whole year class (2022-23) amounted to £4838.00.

Of course, I disputed to that amount until they asked the ACT team to collect that money from me for the past 1 year until I received a letter that I need to reply for 30 days or else will go to the court.

Please advise.

Thank you

Merely a letter of claim. and if you read it PROPERLY it doesn't say they WILL do court. every word bar that one.

as you are well aware from the other thread, it seems like pretty std practice for this online school to demand money (inflated course fees) for the next terms due with rather a long pre cancellation period IMHO. and it's only a T&C requirement not part of the signed agreement/contract, (so a bit like PPI/Bank Charges reclaiming) so can be challenged as an unfair clause .

its only an online thing, not as if they are hiring rooms, teachers, recourses etc, just untick you from a box i expect.

not sure what to put in the letter of claim reply, (but examples can be found if you hit letter of claim).

it will be interesting so see if that court claim thread goes anywhere

dont rush run the 30 days you have.

see what others think....

It refers to enclosed documents but you haven't supplied those. Any reason why?

ok @BankFodder is getting confused 

the enclosed docs are merely their version of the PAPLOC reply form, not documents relating to any contract etc etc.

i would base your reply on post 4 of the letter of claim <<clickme link.

you just need to make a new list for the docs you require at box I

so 

copy of signed contract

complete set of terms and conditions applicable for time

anything else :noidea:

over to the others.

Yes, sorry. I had gathered from the title of the thread that a claim had been issued.

Do follow the advice from my site team colleague above.

Generally though even if there is a breach of contract, you would only be liable for administrative expenses caused by your breach. You would want to know what they were and I'm sure that they are minimal.

Here is the contract

Thanks

I signed this knowingly it is for that year only.

I never read the terms, it is my fault I guess but still I cancelled the online school before the start of the Class.

I thought I will pay some deposits/admin fee.

I never thought I will pay the whole amount we never used

4838 gbp..That is so big and ridiculous to pay without any services/goods used

Hi all,

Me too i received that letter from ACT asking for the whole year about £4800++.

King's Interhigh/ACT letter of claim - Students - Consumer Action Group

I cancelled it but still asking for £4800++
It was 2022. Then I received a lot of letters and phone call.

later, i decided to negotiate with them.

they reduced to £1600++ (one term only)

but i asked to reduce to £1000 as I dont have much money now and I said £500 deposit and £100 per month the remaining.

they agreed for £1000 but cash.

i am still negotiating with them.

Pls let me know if you want to make a group to fight this scammer!

thank you

I am not sure how can I give my personal details to you without showing it to the public here as the ACT is also scanning topics like this online. 

Understand the concern but i am a victim too.

there more help here in the open forum than by talking privately.

doing that we always find is like the blind leading the blind.

both of you have simply received a letter of claim hoping you'll both wet yourself and blindly cough up.

dont forget they are a well established (questionable) establishment and are probably quite skilful in knowing what pulls peoples strings to get money they are p'haps not actually legally entitled too.
