    • I would also take this opportunity to add that I don't really understand why you purchased an insurance policy for this watch – unless it offered you something like new for old, accidental damage or that the policy was transferable to a new owner in the event you decided to sell the watch. If there is not the features that interested you then you are perfectly adequately covered by your consumer rights contained in the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and of course it would be unlawful for John Lewis to attempt to exclude or limit liability in case something happened to the watch and it ceased to be of satisfactory quality for a reasonable period of time. By and large these extended warranties are a waste of money
    • Sunak to new MPs at the Kings Speech debate. Rishi Sunak, in the king's speech debate, tells new MPs that "life comes at you fast" on the government benches. "Before you know it you end up with a bright future behind you and are left wondering whether you can credibly be an elder statesman at the age of 44," he adds.
    • Properly declared means that you declared the exact value of the item that you sent and by and large you are limited in the value that you can claim to that declared value.  It seems that you didn't declare the value of the accompanying insurance and so if you want, you can go ahead and claim it and we will help you but by and large although your chances of recovering the value of the watch are much better than 95%, The chances of you claiming the value of the lost insurance are much less.  It's up to you if you want to try . Please do the reading that we have advised and start preparing your letter of claim and post the draft here. I suggest that you think about posting up a draft letter of claim on about Sunday which will give you lots of time to do necessary reading

    • 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.

Hi Sarah,

 

I wouldn't email them anymore, send all letters recorded delivery.

 

Make sure you go online and acknowledge service of the paperwork, this will give you 28 days instead of the usual 14 days. Full instructions should be with the claim.

 

DO NOT send them any money, or bother talking to them. Just send them this letter, and wait patiently.

 

 

Your Address etc

 

Their Address et.

 

Date

 

Dear Sir

 

In the XXXX County Court

(CLAIMANT) -v- (YOUR NAME)

Claim Number: (CLAIM NUMBER)

 

REQUEST FOR FURTHER INFORMATION

 

I have today filed the Acknowledgement of Service (copy attached) in order that I may file my Defence to these proceedings in due course. By my calculations this must be filed and served no later than 4.00pm on (28 days from the date you received the court claim). However, before doing so, I take the view that your pleadings are not entirely clear and as such, do not appear to disclose any reasonable cause of action against myself. Although this matter may be suitable for the Small Claims Track the purpose of this letter is to make a request for some additional information in order to fully understand your claim and how it is calculated.

 

I note in your pleadings that you are claiming (alleging) that an amount of £AMOUNT is ‘part of a debt due under an agreement number (AGREEMENT NUMBER)’, and also that I ‘agreed to pay the Claimant £(TOTAL)’ – however you do not provide details of how you have reached these amounts, nor any information, or a copy of this ‘agreement number (AGREEMENT NUMBER)’ you refer to.

 

In light of this, can you please provide me with the following:

  • A true copy of the alleged agreement you refer to.
  • How you calculate the sum of £(AMOUNT)
  • How you calculate the sum of £(TOTAL)

We would be grateful if you would respond within 21 days of the above date.

 

In the event that I do not hear from you at the end of this period, I may apply for your Claim to be struck out on the grounds that it does not disclose any reasonable cause of action against me, together with an Order for Costs in the Defendant’s favour. I trust that you will note this particular point.

 

In any event, kindly acknowledge safe receipt of this letter.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

YOUR NAME

This letter requires them to provide the account details and all charges to your account to which the claim relates.

They may well come up with these if it is a recent account but you will be able to counterclaim for unlawful charges + interest.

 

 

Also send a copy to the courts to place on file and ensure you place the claim details clearly on the letter.

 

More advice can be given when you receive your next letter from Lowell/courts.

Lowell Portfolio 1 are not registered with the ICO as data processors, there are a lot of DCA's who are incorrectly registerd but.... this lot are not registered at all.

 

Here's what happens when they are not registered, and if they try to put you in court no judge will entertain their claim because they are committing criminal offences by processing your data.

 

I,ll post the sections you can quote in any further dealings with them next. mind you it would be worth letting them take you to court on this

Two companies fined for flouting Data Protection Act

Two companies have been successfully prosecuted by the Information

Commissioner’s Office for failing to notify under the Data Protection Act 1998. in both cases they were given the maximum possible fine of £5000, and ordered to pay£300 towards prosecution costs, by Manchester City magistrates yesterday.

Corporate & Trade Limited and General & Commercial Guarantee Limited who both trade from premises at First Floor, 130 Church Street, Preston, failed to notify with the Information Commissioner’s Office that they processed personal data. The companies are debt collection agencies. Corporate & Trade Limited were written to on five occasions and General & Commercial Limited on three; both companies failed to notify as a result of these letters. Under the Data Protection Act organisations that process personal information may be required to notify with the Information Commissioner at a nominal cost of £35 per year.

When you do contact them over this they may attempt to bluff and huff and tell you they are covered by their other companies registration WRONG data processor licenses are not transferrable from company to company or usable by other companies.

 

They may try and move the debt over to one of their other companies .....too late if they do that they will be in bigger trouble they should'nt have had your data in the first place and if they process it further in an attempt to get out of being reported and prosecuted the directors really could face the prison sentence as well as the £5000 fine.

Unless we hear from you by return, we shall apply to the court for a County Court Judgement against you with a view of proceeding with immediate enforcement action.

 

then there is a number to call them on what do I do? I aknowledged with the court and I sent them the letter do I now send it to Hamptons ( solicitors ) or do I contact the court because I feel kinda bullied here. :x :x

stitcher, it was implied in your first post that lowell had already issued you with a court claim.

Was it a threat, or a claim form as in your latest thread??

The letter above was if it had already gone to court!!

Have you sent the CCA request via recorded mail...if not do this first!

 

take your time to give info and people can then give advice when they know the facts.

 

Do not give names etc, but enter the headings of such letters bcoz the DCA's sometimes send letters with the notice 'this is not a court document' etc. basically scaring us 'ickle' people?? :confused:

I did send the letter recorded and the first letter was a court claim. This letter acknowledged the claim in court there was no heading on the letter.

 

We have recieved notice from the county court that legal proceedings were issued on 5/01/2007 ( different date 2 me ) You should recieve a claim form which details out claim against you.

 

The response pack blah blah

 

You now need to contact us us to arrange repayment of your debt. Our client would be prepared to arrange monthly or lump sum blah blah.

 

Unless we hear from you by return we shall apply to the court for a ccj against you with a view of proceeding with immediate enforcement action.

 

You should call us immediately on below number.

well the deadline has hit so what do I do they have not provided me with info or the origional aggreement so what do I do now?

 

Unless anyone has any better suggestions I would suggest ringing the court and asking what form to use to have their action struck out. Send off a copy of Sherlock's letter (the one I hope you sent to their solicitors) with the application to show what info was requested and not supplied. Might also be worth doing a formal CCA request - if they are in default when it gets to a hearing you should get off, although the judge might give them more time to comply before striking their petition out.

sorry bit dumb here whats a CCA request. I sent a copy to them and the court and did it recorded delivery as well so on Monday I ring the courts and ask for the form to strike out their action.

So I do that and then there will be a hearing ? Does this mean I will have to appear in court never done that ever not been in a court except to drop of papers :o

You send them a postal order for £1 and they should send you a true copy of the original credit agreement. If they don't send it in 12+2 (allowing for postage) business days they can't enforce it without a court order. If they leave it another 30 days they commit an offence. Use the letter in the template section.

 

If you are worried about going to court click on the "buddy system" link at the top of the CAG home page and see if you can find someone who will go with you.

I would ask for the case to be adjourned on the grounds that you are waiting for documents that you intend to use in your defence (attach a copy of your CCA request & Sherlock's letter). If they have already defaulted on your CCA request then ask for their claim to be struck out on the grounds that it fails to disclose any reasonable cause for action against you (attach CCA / Sherlock's letter). Go down to the court today and ask them for the appropriate form.

Sticherbaker,

Sorry to take things back a bit, but what sort of debt is this that Lowell are chasing you for?

Is it an old one?

I don't see any details other than the fact that Lowells issued the court claim. I'm interested because they did the same thing to me with an old debt, court claim, letter saying pay up etc exactly the same.(we won!)

I apologise if it's a more recent debt, but it would be a shame if you don't defend a statute barred debt in court properly.
