    • 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.

I can't remember a case where they didn't write, although we have someone who dx thought might not go to court. They're still waiting to hear but I suppose it's faintly possible TfL will just drop it.

The initial letter can take weeks or even months depending on how busy the investigations department is. It also takes longer if they have to go back through the history of the card to see how many fares have been evaded.

Worry will need to work out how many fares weren't paid and the value of that. If TfL do agree to an OOC settlement they will want the money to be paid in full within a week or two.

Hello, 

I received the standard letter. 

I don't understand No. 3:

If this is in relation to a ticket irregularity, then if you were unable to produce a pass because you did not have it with you or if your pass was withdrawn because you were unable to produce a valid photocard to accompany it, please enclose a photocopy of the pass/photocard with your reply.

Question: do i enclose my photocard? my partner's freedom pass was confiscated.

Thanks HB, I will will wait for DX to guide me.  10 days means start from the date of the letter or the day i receive the letter which is 23/4?

Do make a photocopy of the letter and fill in the details and attached to the email to be sent to IAP@tfl.gov.uk. 

Then in the email i answer question 1,2, 3 which basically is the draft that i did ??

You can attach your letter to theirs - I would return the original to them and keep a copy.

Print out your letter if you think it answers their questions and put your name and their reference number at the top, then attach it to their form.

Hi HB, 

Have you come across cases where there are no mitigating reasons as to why TfL should not proceed with a prosecution?

for how many weeks/months/years have you been using it twice a week for...roughly?

you still have not answered the above.

..........................

as for their letter and your reply:

the 1st single paragraph detailing why you were reported is the only part specific to you.

the rest is the bulk std TfL template letter that everyone gets when reported.

3 does not apply to you anyway as the report is one of detected fraudulent misuse of a freedom pass not in your name, not a case of a pass you held that you could not produce at the time.

Email them your begging letter, as their letter states...but lets see it first.

Yes, most people here haven't had mitigating circumstances that TfL would believe.

Hi Dx, 

I honestly don't know the answer, may be a year or so ? 

Can't check back the usage on Freedom Pass.

Do they give me a breakdown later??

poss +1yrs use ..blimey..you are going to have a very very hard time avoiding a criminal conviction here if TfL can see a pattern in the usage data they have.

if this be the case, yes, as you'll see if you go READ OTHER THREADS, if the claim progresses to a SJPN court claim, they include a full list of journey's that they suspect you made using the card for you to individually sign off against each one that it was you.

Not prison, no. That has never happened here.

I think they can look back a year on their system and you'll have something like TiredDodo did when they were summoned to court. With a year's use, I'll be amazed if you don't have a court appearance.

Yes.

They won't inform your employer but you may need to. You need to check what it says iin your employment contract. I don't think it usually causes huge problems for most people.

As i don't have any mitigating circumstances other than trying to save pennies, will they fine me to the maximum?

What is the maximum fine they will impose?

I honestly don't know how many times i used it. 

I will get a criminal record which means i can't find another job?

Will they prosecute my partner? 

can you share the link of Tireddodo's case thread , may be i can learn something from there?

Link to TiredDodo's thread, it's the one below yours on the main page of this subforum. Once you've done your paperwork you should read other Freedom pass threads to understand what may happen next.

I didn't say it was a maximum of a year. You said you thought you'd used the card for about a year so I worked on that. Their records are extensive so please don't assume it will just be 12 months.
