    • Done! Thanks again. Will update the thread accordingly.
    • Thank you for your message.  I'm concerned that by complaining to the IPC, and escalating the situation, PCM would be even more inclined to cause problems for me and take action to the fullest extent just to make an example of me.  I can still take the above action as a backup plan if PCM decides to go ahead.

    • 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.

Caught with Childs 5-10yrs railcard


Recommended Posts

I told them that it was an accident and that I used the oyster card as my debit card was lost.

However, they did an investigation and realised it was not a one off.

I have told them how remorseful I feel and how a criminal conviction would result in expulsion from my degree but they still want to take me to court.

I have received the court summons letter

I (and other respondents) always advise “not getting caught in a lie”

it hardens their response. Why would they now believe protestations of remorse and “I won’t do it again” if they've already seen you'd lie and say it was a one-off when it wasn't.. 

You can try approaching the prosecutor on the day, but "I wouldn't hold my breath" …..

No I have not. I will probably do that

How do I convince TFL it is not in the public interest to prosecute?

the last thing I want is a criminal conviction.

I have experienced a lot of self hatred for my action, I will never do it again.

But I just feel like no matter what I say TFL still wants to prosecute

well we cant help you without information.

we need to SEE the org TfL Letter and your reply.

we also need to see the SJPN court forms upon WHAT you are ACTUALLY charged with

and if there is a TIC List requiring your signature next to each journey and how many journey's are on the list?

scan these upto ONE mass PDF read upload CAREFULLY.

if your 'lie' of lost card is included in the court docs within a written statements , i can't see you escaping a criminal conviction...sorry.

Not prosecuting in the public interest seems to be bandied about on forums frequented by students. I don't think I've ever seen a prosecution not go ahead because of that.

You would have to define why it isn't in the public interest to prosecute someone who isn't paying their way and is costing other travellers more. I can't think of a reason.

From what you’ve posted, it absolutely is in the public interest to prosecute.

You’ve fare evaded multiple times. Your reason for doing so is impecunity: but if they accept that as a valid reason they’d have to create a new scheme to allow free travel outside of the existing ones. So that’s mitigation rather than defence.

A conviction carries stigmata and inconvenience : but that is one of the downsides of committing an offence, and one of the reasons to prosecute is deterrence : so you saying it will affect you doesn’t make it not in the public interest to prosecute - it is in the public interest but just not in your interest ….

I come back to the fact that you haven’t really given TFL a reason not to prosecute, and (by being caught in a lie about it being once only) given them a reason to harden their attitude (even if they haven’t seen your comments here about lack of remorse / wishing “you’d just done a runner” .

Why shouldn’t they prosecute?

I didnt tell them it was a one off.

I told them that the reason why I didnt use a valid pass the day I was caught was because my debit card was lost.

If it wasnt for my debit card being lost I was have paid for travel on that day

How many uses, over how long?

so what excuse are you going to use when they find there is a pattern of your use of the childs card going back weeks/months before that day you gave that excuse.....

i knew i was going to lose my debit card in a few weeks/months time so i thought i'd start practicing my fraudulent use early?
