    • Starmer cosying up to right wing outliers and Brexitish (who seem to be just pointing the fingers away from themselves for the failures resulting from what they financed and promoted) to the outrage of huge swathes of the party is a real problem IMO - probably the main thing that could generate vast quantities of 'I'm not voting' among regulars   Looks like hes taking the core for granted and embedding himself in the 'they have nowhere else to go fallacy' - well they may decide the else is redundant and they simply have nowhere to go

    • I started paying her old council tax as they said they would jail her I managed to get those account details. We then got back together she moved in with me stopped me going to my house. Eventually let me back in I was there 4 days then the police showed up at 1am arrested me for 8 different offences. On the morning I was in custody she rang the letting agent and asked for the house to be changed to her sole name as I was in jail. The house was changed to her name I was made homeless. The bills she did not change to her name left them as occupier the utility companies then said I had to pay as there was lots more usage than an empty property. My solicitor said if I don't pay them I will be reported for it. It has since turned out that in her old property she didn't pay the bills. The electric bill she put in her daughter's name then cancelled the direct debit the council tax she never attempted to pay. Due to one of the accusations I have since been told I need to pay these bills even after getting emails saying I'm not liable for the bills. I have forwarded these on to the police and solicitors and had no reply. Other than you have to pay these bills. I'm also going to end up paying the bills where she lives now as once again they are not being paid. I can't go in to detail about the case as I'm due to be charged next week not sure what with yet but the police have told me I'm going to be charged.  My ex will not tell me nor can tell me about her debts as she doesn't want me to know how much debt she is in or has put her daughter in once she turned 18. I do not want to be paying her debts after what she has done to me.

    • 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.

Hy, Not sure if this is right place for this;

Advice  and fact needed please.

1] My understanding is, if you believe that you haven't contacted or  made payment for at least 6 years, then you can argue, Statute Barred, just reciveing a letter or statement, from Debt Collector, does not make it a enforceable debt, especially if you have no claimed it ever was.

2] No court [CCJ] or legal threat letters received

3] Out of blue, letter received, not even my proper address, stating if a one off final payment is made, then debt closed! 

But I dont recall debt and have not made contact with in the 6 years.

I dont think writing to them making acknowledgement of any kind is a good idea, as that then would suggest you know of the debt and your 6 years would be restarted.

What is the best course of action!

 

many thanks

If you've got a letter saying the "debt" is closed just file it and forget about it.

Don't enter into silly letter tennis if you don't have to. They're likely phishing for a response.

We could do with some help from you.

Who is the mysterious DCA?

 

Check your credit file too.

And don't respond to a powerless DCA, you'll give them delusions of grandeur!

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!

why do you always make such obscure posts? speak ENGLISH..

if a debt is statute barred, send them our SB letter.

you cannot unbar a debt if it's already SB'd by doing that..not even a judge can unbar a debt.

:noidea:

however if the address they are using for you is not correct or current, i'e you RAN AWAY from the debt and never updated ANY original Creditor nor latterly the DCA/debt buyer you have moved IN WRITING.

you stand a very big chance of a backdoor CCJ even if the debt IS SB'd.

remember northants bulk is a ROBOCLAIM Court, everything is automated. no human checks anything. just gets rubberstamped as default judgement if you don't defend it.

hy,

sorry I get so  scrambled with posts.

I still got the letter and enclosure its just they got part of the address wrong, haven't moved away, been here for quite a few years

PRA Group Letter 1 - says they recently sold the Barclays A/c debt to PRA Group UK Portfolios Ltd and is owned now  by them.

They are now data controllers of my personal  data for the a/c.

It has amount owed, who I owed to, agreement date Nov 2002.

In same envelope was;

Letter 2, providing a statement of my a/c,  Transaction breakdown available upon request. further information about original credit agreement. Debt is approx 4,300.00+ 

Then repayment solution , if I pay £879.55 full and final settlement to settle the debt. but has to be paid by 21/2/2024.

then about 7 pages of info about Data protection info notice

A lot has happened over last 10 years, especially the last few, nearly 64 now, had to give up work to be a full time family member carer. 

I cant seem to find much or if any info relating to this debt, 

I cant find any letters to say I contacted them with any info or payments offers.

what would the best option for me to proceed, please.

As i only get carers allowance and very little income, they wont get much out of me anyway.

any advice is better than none,

so sorry, Bazooka Boo, lolerz, its such a nightmare time at moment caught up with flooding and burst pipes, sorting travelling and caring full time  for my brother.

-PRA Group transferred my original debt, Barclays to PRA Group UK Portfolios Ltd.

reply to lolerz - sorry no letter from them or anyone who said debt is closed

reply to Bazooka Boo, well they are asking me to respond 

I can not recall ever responding to them ,have some boxes in attic, which are about 8 to 10 years old, will see if I can find anything.

they have given me a statement, a/c summary  and agreement date Nov 2002, which  I assume is when I did a credit agreement, but so long ago now.

I just need to get on top of it and know how to tackle it best.
