    • 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.

RAkbank UAE Debt - Al Tamayez LLC contacted my workplace asking for employee verification


Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

I'm a foreign national currently living in the UK.

I left UAE in 5 years ago unpaid debt : total debt as of 03/2024 is less than £50k (including interest rate). 

Al Tamayez LLC emailed my workplace couple of times last month.

They've sent another email today asking for employment verification and demanding for my current contact details.

I have been copied into this emails.

How can I stop the dca into contacting my employer as it causes me to have panic attacks.

DCA demanded me to send them an initial payment of AED 50,000 and a monthly payment of AED 10,000. 

I don't know what to do.

I can't afford this payment plan and I'm scared to death.

Please help.

I need your advice.

I'm having a mental breakdown.

Hi.

Welcome to CAG.

your employer should not be releasing any details or even confirming you work there. That would be a serious failure under the Data Protection Act 2018 and you'd have rights to make a complaint against your employer to the ICO.

Just tell your employer to ignore them. Al Tamyez LLC is based in the UAE and has NO powers here in the UK. 

A DCA is NOT A BALIFF. They have ZERO legal powers.

Ignore and block their emails. Unless you work in finance your debt is none of your employer's business. Even then it's a grey area. I imagine your HR department is doing the same. 

We could do with some help from you.

Hi Lolerz,

Thank you for your advise - this helps a lot. I'm in a lot of stress and I do not know how to respond nor what to tell to our HR.

Some people are a bit nosy and I feel obligated to disclose information which I m not keen on doing anyway.

I will keep on ignoring their emails as advised..

I'm unsure  if it's possible to ask our IT department to block future emails from them but I will try and ask. 

How soon before RAkbank (original creditor) sell my debt to UK debt collection agency?

I read a lot of threads today and I believe some have had a couple of debt collection agencies chasing after them.

It won't be sold to a UK debt collection agency. They might get a UK based debt collector to act on their behalf but they're POWERLESS.

You only have to worry about any of their communication if you get a letter of claim. Then come back here :)

We could do with some help from you.

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...

I also have that one sending me emails. however and this is more for others as they've already crossed into this nasty approach, you must take your details off linkedin etc as this gives them easy access to you.

Hi Dx, 

I did not inform the original creditor about my current address but will do so. 

dubai 5 0 

I have no LinkedIn or other social media account.

However, my employer is heavily engaged with promoting this in social media and my name was mentioned few times.

I'm thinking of changing job, however, that might be impossible at the moment.

fair enough.

thats obviously where they've got your details from then.

My friend had the same thing but essentially other than any embarrassment you might feel there is no problem here.

its just an attempt to add stress to you and make you snap.

one of my debts is with a bank that use moriarty from what I see on here.

they would send emails saying moriarty were looking after it and would be in touch.

in fact they never did.

the same emails then said it was with a Uae one who started sending lots of mails.

weird as they have even less chance of getting the money

however they do operate in a more nasty way given the chance hence the importance of not having a visible linkedin etc

What else could they do apart from emailing our HR?

I dreading the nasty actions they could potentially do in the next few weeks.

At the moment I'm ignoring them.

If they ultimately result to divulging my details of debt to employer who can I get in touch to complain?

thats all they can do is embarrass you.

via facebook + any other social media, ringing friends and family etc etc. works etc etc.

its a very very old tactic . 

sadly there is nowt you can complain about as they are not registered nor regulated by the UK.

its how they work.

It is sad to know the things they do in order to recover debt.

I'm willing to pay the original creditor if it's a reasonable monthly payment.

However, this DCA are demanding monthly payment that I couldn't possibly afford and I'm not willing to give them a single cent as I will be subject for further harassment. 

Thank you dx. For responding. 

I'll update this thread.

simply ensure you inform the original creditor in writing of you correct and current address.

the rest can be ignored totally.

its a very very well trodden route for ALT to employ. 

lots of threads here about them and this.

absolutely NOTHING they can do.

seriously stop getting wound up about it.

one in 100'000 people...it's simply your turn, they'll soon move on to harass the next potential mug.

if you WISH to try an negotiate with the OC, then do so.

choice is yours or not. dont get pressured ever.
