    • Thank you for taking your time and helping me on this. Would you recommend I also send a letter tomorrow to both BMW and Motonovo?
    • she and  johnson need to be kicked off the taxpayers credit card - for starters I'm certain there is cause - taking up 'jobs' when they shouldn't, bringing the nation into disrepute with their antics .. I'm sure it would be a very popular act from a new labour guv
    • Please have a look at this draft letter. It is modelled on yours but I have cut out a load of the unnecessary information. Also, the responsibility lies with the finance company because the vehicle was brought on hire purchase. You send it to them and a copy to big motoring world.   Let us know if there's anything that you disagree with, which is wrong, which you think should be added

    • Thank-you @BankFodder, your statement is a correct understanding of my position and I agree, it is actually really what I was looking for in starting this thread, as I too believed that the maximum I could claim for is that which I sold it for, even though this was substantially below market value at the time. And so, this sold value is what I shall be claiming for + the other expenses. @dx100uk I get your point, but this is just not what I want to expose myself to. Unfortunately I was one of the unlucky ones to have my details stolen in the Peoples Energy hack, and in 2020 I discovered that those details had been used to take out car insurance, and that the insured was then involved in a collision and my details were dragged through the mud. Despite Aviva cancelling the claim and treating as though it never were, even though I have the letters from them to say that they have removed this claim from the insurance database, I still get refused insurance and credit products to this day until I send across the letter from Aviva which explains that I was a victim of fraud. So you'll forgive me for not jumping up and uploading my data to a server utility for which I have no control over its retention policy, or where the server is located globally, its legal jurisdiction, or its security protocols.

    • 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.

Lowell/Overdales Claimform - old Cap1 Debt


Recommended Posts

Hi all

Im Helping out a family member who has just received a claim form from Overdales Solis for a capital credit card of £3000. Taken out approx 2018

He was making payments until last year of 50 a month until he lost job.

CAB have advised eligible for a DRO

 

is it worth defending ?. Having a read through forums it seems they usually have paperwork in order these days or should I just offer a token payment. 
 

what are my next steps?  The defendant does have some mental health issues so whether or not they will be able to defend themselves in court is another issue

 

Thanks

  • fkofilee changed the title to Overdales / Lowell - Capital One? Claim Form Recieved

Paying DCA's one penny, never mind £50 per month is a mugs game, they have really been milking him as a cash cow

 

See where received a claim form is underlined in your post, you need to click, on that and read carefully, then answer the questions, then copy and paste into a post on this thread

Forget the CAB ,  their advice is sometimes weird.

Is it worth defending? Lowell brought these debts for 10 p in the pound , years ago, because they are flawed. Think about it! if it was such an easy win, Capital one could have taken it to court and crushed him.  It could be an invalid agreement, default notice, or many other things. In a nutshell , yes, and we can help you.

We could do with some help from you.

Thanx London will get on to it this evening

having a read around these forums I can’t seem to find many success stories using your methods.

how successful are these methods or am I just buying time for him and a ccj will be inevitable in the end.

Thanks

another question is, will he have to appear at court..?

I am not sure he has got it in him

Plenty of success stories, also bear in mind not everyone updates the forum.  Overdale's want you to roll over and pay, without using your enshrined legal right to defend. make you wet yourself in fear that a solicitor will Take you to court, so you will pay up without question.

Most people do just that,  but you are lucky that you have found this place and can help you put together a good defence. You should get reading on some other Capital One and Overdale's cases on the forum to get an idea of how it works.

Oh wow. Thanx DX. Not sure how you managed that but that has made it a lot easier thanks 

but I’m a confused as to how I can have a defence until they send all I’ve asked for

So cca and CPR sent to Lowell and over sales respectively..

still unable to access MCOL   Waited over an hour to speak to them only to be told they cannot pass me through to technical team. They have provided a claim response email but I don’t have adobe.  

And so I attached an image of acknowledgment of service and emailed them.  Also sent hard copy by post

have kept copies of all three as well as proof of postage. 
 

is that all for now??
