    • Hi,   I sent the email to both my local councillor and the leader of my local council yesterday evening. I didn't receive an acknowledgement email. Do you know if I should have, as I know that if you ever email an MP you always receive a acknowledgement email?   Walshy
    • Can I ask how your taking him to court with just his a trade name ?  Yes I notice hes still trading on ebay.   
    • Very good finds indeed which help to undermine their case.. And to strengthen your case take a look  look at a thread by Tom Price also at Southend airport which is several threads below yours and you will see that he won his case on the fact that he was stopped rather than parked. On top of that he had the Airports Act  1986 to quote. The relevant section is no 63 " Byelaws are covered at S.63  (2)Any such byelaws may, in particular, include byelaws— (d)for regulating vehicular traffic anywhere within the airport, except on roads within the airport to which the road traffic enactments apply, and in particular (with that exception) for imposing speed limits on vehicles within the airport and for restricting or regulating the parking of vehicles or their use for any purpose or in any manner specified in the byelaws;" That confirms that the roads at the airport are either covered by the Road Traffic Act or Byelaws neither of which is relevant land therefore  PoFA cannot apply. And  VCS should be aware of that. Another thing is that when you posted their WS you didn't include their contract which I missed at the time. However Tom Price included it in his. And guess what-the  alleged offence they are pursuing you for, No Stopping, is not included in their contract. If you look at the end of their Service Agreement [aka contract] you will a list of contravention on Scedule 1 [7] (46) PARKING/WAITING ON A ROADWAY WHERE STOPPING IS PROHIBITTED That is the nearest to what you did. But you were not parking nor waiting -you were stopped so there was no reason to issue you with a PCN as you never broke any of their contraventions. Looks like they breached your GDPR and you should include that as it carries a hefty charge £750 is not unheard of.   Have a read of his WS too which may give you further ideas even possibly to rebut some of the points VCS  make.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

If everyone donated you guys £1 or even 50p you would be sorted, If you have a pay pal account it could be done instantly!

Definitely a donate button. What have you got to lose.

Ambivilant about affiliates. No problem, as long as they're not intrusive (especially no pop-ups). I'm reasonably solvent and am only claiming £90, so for me it's just a good bit of sport and if (no,when) I get the money I will certainly be donating. I'm sure that anybody who is in a position to donate will do so willingly. Make it happen and just watch the money roll in!

Keep up the good work.

A donate button sounds great. not sure about affiliate programs though. Could you try using just the donate button first, to see if that raises enough revenue? IMO the less this site has any links with commercial organisations the better.

Agree with you HD, the donate button sounds like the best idea.

 

This site has done an awful lot of good for the underdog in general.

 

It must be quite urgent to get this going now that there are so many people being helped.

 

Probably the only other way to go is a subscription, but that would hit those people that really cannot afford it.

Yeah - there's no question of a subscription fee, we will not be doing that.

 

I think the donate button and we've been toying with the idea of legal book reviews - BF will do a review from a legal perspective and I will do one from the laymans eye. The books we'be bought so far have not only helped this site - it's helped me when firms phone up for payment of things or try to get away with not telling me which firm they are under the DPA - I now know that they are lying and can get what I want from them by quoting my rights - all learned from the books.

 

Then, if anyone wants to buy a copy (from Amazon) then we would get 10%.

 

That way, at least we're working for the money ;-) (like we're not already!!)

If you feel that we have helped you, or you would like to help keep this web site running so that others can continue to get their money back, please click the donate button at the top of the forum.

Yup The donate button sounds the better option, I always intended sending a donation once my money was refunded.

The money I am seeking is only £200 but if I can find a way around the 6 year rule it will be thousands and then boy will I donate!!

As I suggested a few weeks ago, why can't the site join Google Adsense. It's ads are based on keywords on the page, so hopefully some banking ads will show up....click on their ads and the bank has to pay google for it lol, a roundabout way for us to really cost the banks a lot of money !! I for one would click on Lloydstsb adverts for an hour a day ! this site would earn loads, the banks would pay loads (but delete this message when you sign up to it)

Is that only for the books that are reviewed on the site here? Or can you manage to get 10% on any books bought on Amazon when linked from here? That could provide a lot of money to support the site with.

 

Still up for a donate button.

 

Neil.

Referral payments are paid for any purchase made from a link on this site. So clicking on a (for example) book ad and buying a totally different DVD would still make the site money. Amazon do totally random ads that don't relate to content too, best sellers etc.

I think you lot are truely amazing especialy the AD'S and the MOD'S and you deserve every single donation you get and more.

Must admit I would not be here if I would of had to make a donation on joining the site. What captured me was the information available and the comradship on the site, that sold it to me.

I guess most people want to contribute in one way or another, I know I did. So what about a gentleman's agreement on joining the site that you will make a donation once you have got your charges back or anytime up to then.

This would then be along the lines of " No win no fee ".You could have the catch phrase

" CHARGES BACK CELEBRATE, NOW IT'S TIME TO DONATE "
