    • I see the Brexit-ish are again delaying  implementing their 'grate deal' 'protecting the UKs borders' that they pressed through with the wholehearted support of MPs like smugg - who is now one of the main moaners saying this inflation raising and business destroying 'great deal'  shouldn't be implemented. Of course 3 of the benefits of NOT implementing the Brexitish grate deal as the Brexitish negotiated are:   1. Less UK businesses will collapse 2. UK inflation NOT increased by 0.6% (hence fiddling the figures to us scraping NOT being in a Brexit generated recession) 3. The problems will be dumped in labours lap after the GE   "Analysis by specialist credit insurance firm Allianz Trade said the removal of tariffs on the goods would reduce inflation by 0.6 percentage points, and cut import costs by close to 7 billion pounds ($8.8 billion) in nominal terms."   reuters.com WWW.REUTERS.COM     https://www.reuters.com/world/uk/uk-economy-grows-by-01-february-2024-04-12/   Rees-Mogg warns post-Brexit border charges could be inflationary WWW.THELONDONECONOMIC.COM According to reports, Britain faces a £2 billion post-Brexit bill on European food imports from the end of the month.  
    • Thank you . Please stand by for a reply later on  
    • Sorry just get worried that they will make my life harder than they already have lol   Bought the car around 12th Sept 2022 for £78,000 from clinkard cars.   Performance, Prestigious and Specialist cars in Romsey, Hampshire | Clinkard Performance Cars WWW.CLINKARDCARS.CO.UK Performance, Prestigious and Specialist cars Dealers in Romsey, Hampshire Was a 2019 Range Rover with 25k miles, £20k deposit at £750pm pcp over a 4 year period.   Finance company are alphera (bmw finance) spoke to them in October 2023 about the damage my bodyshop advised me of but they told me to deal with the dealership. Paid for the repair myself as I was told the extended warranty I paid for (recommended through dealer) wouldn't cover it as it was an existing fault and not mechanical breakdown. When I got the £40k offer from the dealership they still didn't want to get involved unless I got an independent inspection done. Used Elite Forensic inspections as they seem highly rated online (more comprehensive than your average AA inspection). I just looked online for thr best inspections for customers eho hsbe alre purchased the car. Their report was super comprehensive over like 50 pages of text and photos. Comparisons to the advert photos against what the inspector saw made in clear that the damage was before I purchase it. Got the report back 10th Jan 2024 and couldn't believe that they'd picked up the level of accident the car had been in and raised an official complaint through Alphera, they couldn't come to a decision with 8 weeks so raised with FOS. Around the 7th March 2024. Small issues started within the first week of purchasing like ambient light not working on the side the car was hit and car randomly switching off completely when I'd stop at traffic lights/junctions. Dealers eventually got this sorted which I appreciate, but doesn't change the fact that they didn't check the car as well as I'd been told it had been checked and they'd sold me an accident repaired car and initially tried to say all cars have had paint due to stone chips etc. Also turns out the car had only had 1 service before I serviced the car in mid 2023 (when the service light came on the car).   So far Clinkard have had my car for nearly a month (so my wife and I hsve had yo share cars since), they've said we've taken the far to 2x garages so far to inspect it and got 1 more garage to take it to. Currently refusing to tell me what those 2 garages have said so far with the attitude of because you've gone through FOS we have to follow the correct channels and respond to the complaint through them which is quite annoying.
    • This has been playing on my mind a little so been reading. Am I right in saying that if the original debt was regulated under the CCA and below 25k they can't use HCEO? 
    • Thank you, I appreciate your response! Just written a CCA request. Will send that to Cabot tomorrow with the £1 postal order. Should I send it recorded delivery? Trying to work out the best address to send it to as there are two online addresses.

    • 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 car you didn't update your V5C on when you recently moved? re:so some form of traffic offence poss?

or could it be a travel pass issue that you were not supposed to be using?

i will guess the latter .....you got stopped by an inspector recently i bet.

Hello, welcome to CAG.

I agree with dx, if this is a court summons you shouldn't ignore it. The court would find you guilty in your absence and the consequences would build from there.

Is it definitely a court summons? It would help if you post a pdf of their letter please, with your personal details covered up.

You can negotiate with TfL up to and including any court date and on the day, you can speak to the TfL prosecutor to ask for an out of court settlement.

Please let us see the correspondence.

Best, HB

i used a staff pass

they don't know i don't live at the address the letter was sent to, my dad could return to sender, so technically i never received the letter.

My sister in law works for TFL and told me not to respond but return to sender especially since i don't live there.

I am unable to get the letter to show now

also my last name is different from whats on the letter

Do you know why they would have the wrong surname?

It sounds as if TfL have contacted your sister about this. They take misuse of staff passes very seriously, as I understand it, and I'm thinking she should contact her union rep in case she's in trouble over lending her pass.

It's difficult to advise you further without seeing the letter [cover up your personal details, address, etc]. Are you able to get hold of a copy of it please?

Are you sure it's a summons? They are rarely used these days. More likely to be a "Single Justice Procedure Notice."

But it doesn't matter. What you are considering is unwise. Anybody sending documents associated with legal proceedings has only to prove they were sent to the recipient's last known address. So long as they do that it is deemed "served". As for the name discrepancy, where did TfL get your name from?

Hiding away from these things is never a good idea.

Yes it a SJP letter, similar to what others have posted.

The name of the person on the letter no longer exists legally, it’s my maiden name and the address is incorrect.

What’s the worst that can happen?

Whatever decision they make I won’t receive or know about it

What we said earlier.

ETA: And, as I said earlier, this will come back to your sister and I imagine she'll be called to a meeting about it. TfL, as I also said, take misuse of staff passes very seriously and it could threaten her job.

Another question - how many times did you use the card? They can check back on its history.

That is not correct. You continue to exist as the same legal person whatever name you call yourself and irrespective of whether you change your name on marriage.  "The SJPN was in my maiden name" will not work as a defence.

  • dx100uk changed the title to Staff Pass Misuse - TfL SJPN

The worst? The worst rarely happens. Right now a court hearing, ticket prices, costs, possible criminal record and anything consequential to that.Potential repercussions for any staff member involved.
Like I say, the worst doesn't happen as much as people might think.

But it is always made worse when compounded by other offences. For example, providing false details or no details when under caution. Occasionally, if it goes to court, this might be considered as an attempt to pervert the course of justice.

(Note that change of names due to marriage, divorce etc. are matters of public record and easily discoverable—sorry.)

So, really, your best bet is to avoid a court case, no?

So your relative got you a pass of your own or you used their staff one?

HB

I think @mariaabs85 might mean that a family member works for TfL and that staff member is in turn allowed to nominate a named member of the same household an ancillary pass.

So I gather it is the nominee pass the OP has been using rather than the staff pass itself.

Some essential clarity would help us help the OP. Although, to be fair, when their opening post asks for advice on breaking the law—! 😬

really, should know better than that working for them....

have you got the original letter from TfL about the incident a few months ago? where is that?

you should have responded with a begging letter via email to TfL trying to get an OOC settlement .

how many times have you used the staff pass?

would there be a pattern to the use?

it's very important you interact by answering these questions else this could cost you not far short of a £1000 fine in total if you continue to ignore everything and not ACT.

The worst that can happen, should you continue to ignore this, is that you will be convicted and sentenced in your absence.

What the sentence may be is a little difficult to say as you have not told us what offence you have been charged with. There are a number of possibilities, including offences under TfL bylaws up to fraud (a criminal offence which can carry a custodial sentence). You will be informed by post (at the same address as the one you gave) and if you ignore that, enforcement action will be taken against you. This may see bailiffs or enforcement officers attempting to enforce any financial penalties and may ultimately end in your arrest (again, depending on the sentenced imposed).

TfL take the abuse of staff passes very seriously and rarely offer out-of-court settlements. In any case the time for that has long passed and since you seem intent on trying to evade the matter entirely and are  unwilling to engage with them anyway, the likelihood of it happening now is even smaller.
