    • The last photo shows the overflow carpark looking at the block which our room was located. When we got out of the car my partner thought that the building was for staff accommodation.  The unsecured bedroom window opened onto this car park.
    • Also I see that you are doing a lot of this on the telephone – and without any written confirmation. This is a big mistake. You need to start taking this matter seriously and so everything should go in writing. If you have telephone calls then they should normally be recorded. Read our customer services guide. You should make notes about every telephone call and then you should send an email to your telephone correspondence confirming what they have said or what they have agreed. It is important that you keep detailed paper trails here. Of course we may be jumping the gun and maybe big motoring world will step up to the mark – but I'm afraid that they have a lousy reputation has you have seen and so you need to start practising survival techniques and protecting yourself. You say for instance in your letter of rejection that the mechanic told you on the telephone that the gearbox needed replacing. Do you have any other evidence of this conversation? This is going to sound a bit harsh – but other people will be visiting this thread as well for their own purposes. You conducted their research about this company before you bought the vehicle. You now are fully aware that this is a company which can be very difficult to deal with and causes a lot of problems for many of their customers and yet you are still taking a telephone/verbal approach. Do I need to say any more? Also one of the documents you put up is an email exchange but it is not clear who is writing to who or what dates. If you showed this email to somebody in a pub they would be asking lots of questions about who sent the first message, who sent the second message, what dates were they sent et cetera. Please think about this before you post things. Please can you clarify the details of that email exchange. Please will you present the information carefully. We are all volunteers here and we have to rely on you to do the spadework
    • I told the DM that the room was not acceptable because of the reasons already mentioned. He informed me that they were full that night and that they could move me to the room next door (would not solve my problem with the rooms location). Told the DM that I could not stay in the room provided for the night so left no option but to leave. DM did not reply and I walked out.   IMG_1475.pdf IMG_1476.pdf IMG_1477.pdf
    • Please will you upload your documents in PDF format in future. It is unhelpful to have them in word format and also word documents will carry personal details relating to you and your computer.
    • Thanks for letting us know that you had a conversation with someone – I sort of imagined that you might tell us what the conversation was – who said what to whom…

    • 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 shoplifting Sainsbury's but they also detained and kept M&S stolen goods


Recommended Posts

Totally stupid mistake struggling with money with 2 young kids no excuses so I won't bother justifying  just feeling deep regret and absolute fear for what happens next. Sincere moments of madness opportunistic and absolutely stupid

Caught shoplifting from Sainsbury's by shop lifting plain clothed detective (peanut butter almond milk chia seeds and nuts ) I only took 3 to 4 items from Sainsbury's listed above 

First time I did it  i have never done it before  

Was given a letter banning me took details but no photo taken 

I also had on me food items from mns that the store detianed at the same time as they wouldn't let me leave without showing a receipt as they said I would have stole those too (they werent wrong)

. I have been to mns a few times in the last month and done a similar thing always general food shop 

I left the Sainsbury's store when he let me go and left all the goods there mns.and sainsburies and did not return. 

M&s and Sainsbury's are on the same high street  

Questions 

Was not caught by m&s will Sainsbury's share my info and will m&s be in touch?

Presume they can check cctv of the time sainsburies detained me and probably find it 

No police called when at Sainsbury's 

Scared that mns will also ban me after the event  or worse check cctv and have my details and pass to police to investigate 

I am mortified at what I've done the detective did not mention anything about further letters / police or anything more other than taking my details and giving me a banning letter 

My fear is they have told MNS and now MNS will investigate aswell they may have their own footage etc...and go further than sainsburies did at that time 

Mns goods was fruit veg chicken cheese all food items 

Advise please what could I be facing 😭

Hello, welcome to CAG.

I've moved your thread to our shoplifting forum for advice on this. I've also edited the title a bit, please let me know if I've misunderstood what you meant.

Best, HB

  • honeybee13 changed the title to Caught shoplifting Sainsbury's but they also detained and kept M&S stolen goods

No they can't tell M&S nor will they bother with cctv. 

Forget it happened.

Any chance it could go to the police? I'm terrified they will pass the details across given it was groceries from 2 different  shops

Should I be expecting one of those RPL letters he didnt mention it but i presume its the next step they take?

not a chance of police involvement after the event

the police are not interested in small fry,

just the big organised gangs that shoplift to fund drugs.

Trying to upload a photo of the letter it doesn't seem to be allowing me to any ideas how I can upload for you to see/ review? 

The letters look like a balance of £150.00 being asked for and threats of court proceedings if this isn't paid.
