    • 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 wish you luck as Ive now issued a summons for this so called company.

The service is the worst ever, Mr Dunstone does even answer letters himself so why waste your time.

Because they collected from a account which was not the right one, ie I paid charges and costs of so many telephone calls to there so called service centre. At one time I walked from my yard to there offices !5 mins and was still on the phone waiting for the so called manager to answer when I walked into the office.

But wait @he could not answer any questions but would get back to me Iam still waiting some 4 months.

So for my costs and losses and damages.

 

I have addressed three letters hand delivered to Mr Dunstone, one with a copy of the summons But do'nt worry he never even answered!

Good luck. I am taking them to my solictors soon. As i paid my Talk Talk bill by standing order as i usual do and the 5th payment their bank can not even find it. In the mean time my bank is looking into it and chasing it up with their bank, but its been 3 weeks now and no reply from their bank and overall 2 months since i paid. I have told carphone warehouse that i am not paying another bill yet until the payment for November has been found by their bank. When you do phone customer services you are talking to someone in South Africa not local. Their call packet might be cheaper than BT, but the problems you get from them i just wonder is it really worth swapping to a cheaper phone company just to save a few pennys and end up with head aches.

MY APOLOGIES MAYBE THIS SHOULD BE A FRESH POST I,m just writing up a summons on the moneyclaim online site. I,m just wondering if anyone has got any ideas. I ordered a phone last year from CPW. After loads of aggro, i could not get the the damm thing to work so I got annoyed and sent it back with a letter to the head office,rejecting the goods. All I got was a patronising phone call back telling me to go to a shop and get a new sim card. The phone or at least i think it was the phone arrived back a week later. I refused to accept delivery of the phone. I then waited and the payments were still being taken from my bank account. I allowed a few months to pass by and had enough so I took them to court quoting bits of the sale of goods act. Unfortunately I did ask the court to recind the contract. The little sods are still taking money from the account. I phoned them up again and they told me that that the contract was still valid. What now ??????????????????.

Your problem is that the phone and the contract are two different things. You are certainly entitled to get a replacement phone if it is faulty, but yopur contract is for the SIM, and as the phone service has not been questioned, you still remain liable for that. The SOGA does not cover the contract, only the handset, so unless you can advise the working of the judgement, you have to assume that the contract continued and you remained liable for this until cancellation or when your contract period expired. Start a new thread to discuss this matter....!

I have recently filed second MCOL against TalkTalk. First one was for taking my money twice from the bank and the current one was for placing a message on my line, informing all callers that there is a restriction on my line because I haven't paid the bill. Idiots. I only stay with them because of good package for European calls and enormous hassle of swapping landline and broadband. Their customer service has a lowest rating on a vast majority of online polls.

and don't hope for Charlie D writing back to you....he never replied to me, booohooo....when I told him that he needs to learn to walk first before he runs...after he bought UK AOL.

Hi Joa, good luck and keep us updating:);)

Mr D is useless....u r right:)))

 

I received a letter from CW Lifeline insurance people via email with refusal to pay £195 back for the insurance i wasn't aware of paying(never used to check my statements:-o ).When i bought my phone it was part of free offer and when i cancel the contract a year later, they still kept charging me...

 

As they said i should've cancelled it by myself...i even didn't know i had it...

 

I emailed them a Prelim letter, and giving them 14 days to refund...:D

 

 

Have a great day and let me know how your claim is going.....Good luck;)

I can tell you that in my dispute with this outfit, i phoned and got throuh to the folks that deal with the problems. All I got was sarcastic abuse. Bear in mind that your probably on their PIN list. They will become vindictive. You will have to demand everything. Expect no cooperation .

 

Just tell them what you want and issue the summons. If you want cheap phone calls can I suggest 18185 or maybe voipe. ?????

I think I,m correct in aing that only 20% of small claims are contested.

If they contest it they will have to send a solicitor to YOUR local court, they will be taking a pragmatic decision based on costs v likely outcome.

itsamomentintime: my particulars of claim

The defendant provides telecom services for

me. The defendant has suspended my account

and has arranged for a recorded message to

be played to all who called me. This

message announced to callers that the line

has been restricted to due to non payment.

I have a recording of this message. This

happened on 2 occasions and lasted few days

each time.The defendant has breached my

rights to privacy and his obligation to

keep my data confidential. This has caused

me a considerable distress and humiliation.

I have lost an opportunity of paid

freelance assignment as potential client

heard this message. I requested £200 as a

compensation for breach of Data Protection

Act, Administration of Justice Act 1970,

section 40 point 1 and for embarrassment

and anxiety caused. The defendant paid £70

and I am requesting that the defendant pays

me further £130.

 

Issued on 17.01.07. No response yet. Previous claim settled in full.
