    • as you mention the bpa sounds like its a scummy private car park lot blue badges mean nothing on private land anyway.............. so a failure to display something that is meaningless on private land anyway is a money grabbing scam moved to the private parking forum dx dx
    • who is it from  a council or a private parking company?
    • As per the heading, received a parking charge for failure to display a blue badge in a disabled bay on a retail park.  I am a blue badge holder, disabled/wheelchair user with a Motability vehicle. I received the charge as 'notice to keeper' I was not the driver. I don't have a valid driving license so use a carer. The notice arrived a week after the alleged incident. It states that as the 'driver' failed to pay the charge in full  hence, it is now the keepers responsibility ( the notice was dated 2 days after the alleged infringement and as no notice to driver was on the vehicle, I don't know how they expect the driver to be able to either pay or dispute the charge if they are not aware of it) Anyway, really looking for help how to reply. I cannot remember if the badge was correctly displayed or not. Photos taken of car miss a bit where I store my badge if not displayed so it would be possible to see a badge even if not 'correctly displayed" . It was a bit of a sh**ty day weather wise, gusty and raining  (as seen on the photos which reminded me of the actual day) so it is possible that badge blew to the floor as the driver was helping me out of the car into wheelchair. There is no windscreen photo showing that a PCN to "Driver" was stuck on the window either. The car park is free. There are no Parking Signs at all near the disabled bays that one could read to adhere to any terms and conditions. The whole row of disabled bays - of which are there many only state badge holders ( does not stipulate Blue Badge Holders) The notice states that the parking company is a member of the BPA and Operating in accordance with the British Parking Association's Code of Practice. The BPA, section 19.1 State that at least one parking sign should be near the disabled bays, in a position that can be easily  read by by a disabled person without leaving their car in order to decide to be bound by such terms. We returned to look for signage on the retail park and could not find one sign that was near the bays. The only sign we could find was high up on a pole but not near the bays. Someone had to get out of the car and stand on tip toes to be able to take a photo of a sign. I would be grateful if someone could help or point me in the right direction. It is now  15 days since the alleged incident and 7 days since I received the notice.

    • 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.

If any of you have read my previous thread, then you will know my situation. If not, here's a brief outline. I took a loan out with Provident Personal Credit in 2004 but then I moved. Last year a collections agent from Moorcroft knocked on my door and forced me into making a payment arrangement insisting that if I didn't then bailifs would be sent round. I said they could go to court for it, and he said it wasn't neceassary to do that, they could instruct the bailifs without a court order.

 

Last week I ask for a coppy of my CCA but he laughed and said 'i had been looking on the internet too much' and I said, actually it was the CAB (which it wasn't, but i wasn't going to tell him that), and he said 'listen love, don't waste your time, we don't listen to the cab, its your debt, you know it is, and you're gonna pay it back like it or not. If i have to send a bailif round its £200 for him to knock on your door which will be added to the debt'

 

I am by no means disputing the fact that I owed money to Provident, but I am sure that the amount they are trying to get off me is way more than it should have been despite this very intimidating guy informing me 'moorcroft are not wescot, we don't add any charges on the debt'.

 

Do I still have a right to ask for my CCA? If so, if they don't provide it within the time limit, is the debt therefore unenforcable despite me paying to it already? And, does it matter that its a collection agent from Moorcroft collecting the money, because this fella really scares the hell out of me? Do I send the CCA request to Moorcroft itself, because if I gave it this collection agent i'm sure he'll laugh at me because he said I can't do it now.

 

I have 2 children and as I say, this man scares me, very intimidating, and not only that, he knows how uncomfortable I am with people knowing my business, but he seems to go out of his way to make sure the whole street are aware of what has happened, despite me telling him not to discuss it outside. I feel humiliated, and more to the point, annoyed. I hate this man coming to my house, and if I have to pay it back, i'd rather pay with my bank card. What can I do???

Firstly dont worry or panic! Doorstep collections have the same powers as you or me. Especially via Moorcroft, they have just learnt over time what to say to ensure people pay up.

 

I would firstly write to moorcroft explaining about the doorstep collection man and his 'nature' and offer however much you want to pay and send in a financial statement to support this. Confirm in the letter you will not make payment via Doorstep collection and they CAN recall it and should do so too.

 

With regards to getting a Credit agreement there should be no reason why you cant and I would include this in your letter too. If they did not provide this then yes the debt would be uneforceable despite you paying it as it seems you felt you had no choice but to pay it. If the collector does call round again confirm you are in dispute with the account and he does not have the right to be on your property! Send him packing and not to bother coming back. ( Has he given you a receipt each time for payment as well?)

 

There are some handy letter and templates here. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/debt-bailiffs-advice/20758-creditors-dcas-letter-templates.html

 

Good luck and ask again if anything else you need help with....:D

thanks very much. I'm glad I found this site because I am learning so much more. When he first came banging on my door, i didn't have a choice but to arrangement payment, or at least thats what he told me then. I didnt know he had to go to court to get a bailifs order because he said that 'he is different from all that' they can do it without this action. Do I have a right to call the police if he refuses to leave my property without a payment?

Yep phone them....He is talking out of he rear!! Hes only different cos he a lying swine. Tell him you are not making further payments via him and you are writing to moorcroft directly...When you do send your letter mark it for the attention of 'home collections'. Make sure you clearly state his manners and how he scares you and that you intend to pay so much but only via Moorcroft directly. Remember to enclose a financial statement to support any offer.

 

Even if you offer £1pm as long as your financial statements shows this is what you have left per month ( wink wink ) they will accept it or send it back to your original debtor. Anything over £3 per month moorcroft will keep the debt with them and you can carry on paying them.

Blimey - this sounds like the man who came on behalf of Moorcroft to my house! Very rude, condescending and discusses other 'clients' business and ours with a neighbour.

 

You can't be forced to deal with this person - As Maxibon says, write and tell them that you are not prepared to do so and why.

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

They are breaching Data Protection as well when telling other people about your business. If you are sure this has happened tell Moorcroft Home collections as they did take this quite seriously...

Never, ever phone them, do it all in writing. Make sure your postal order is crossed it will cost you £1.45 from the post office. the 45 pence is for the commission. You get a receipt so you will have the number of the postal order, make sure you attach this to your copy of the letter you send (the one you keep for your records) and make sure you include the message posted on your other thread regarding the Tort of Trespass, so Moorcroft and Doorstep Collections realise you mean business. if that Doorstop collector calls again hand him the Tort Trespass warning and then inform him you are calling the police if he ever sets foot on your property again.

NB Battleaxe, I meant 'call the police ' when I stated

Yep phone them
if he doesnt leave.

 

It does sicken me the way Moorcroft deal with people. They are very 'Cowboy' anyway and I heard so many breaches in my time there, it was terrible.:mad:

I was going to post advice here but it looks like I have been beaten to it :D

 

I will stress though what has been said.

 

This man is using intimidating tactics which is not allowed, he is making threats which have no basis. He cannot do anything regarding entering your house or seizing goods without a court order.

 

I suggest next time he arrives tell him in no uncertain temrs what has been suggested so far, call the police by all means and tell them you need help quickly as this man is making threats against your property and person. If you can take a photo of him for later evidence. Tell him to leave your property immediately.

 

send the CCA request to moorcroft, they HAVE to comply or the alleged debt becomes unenforceable in law. 12 days from receipt of the request they should stop all enforcement activity until such time as they send the document.

 

If you lived close enough to me I would say phone me next time he shows his face and I'll run over there, I love these bullies especially when they are put where they belong :D

dizzeedeedee, Moorcroft are one of the DCAs I am currently taking on. I sent them a CCA request last week and believe me, my Standing Order payment to them left my account kicking and screaming with protest ! :)

 

I am pretty sure that they cannot produce anything. I have grown much stronger as time has gone on and you will too. Sometimes, these bullies play on the fact that it is sometimes easier to intimidate women.

Moorcroft are sending 'homke collections' to me, as I am disputing HBoS Debt, I really aren't worried, i can p*** about as much as the collectors, and being a PC, I dont think they'll argue as much. If however they do, we'll have fun!!!
