    • Hi all,   It's been a while since I last posted.   We were due to fly LHR - Mex - Lap (return) with AeroMexico on May 2nd.   The flights were booked with Netflights (owned by dnata).   We have requested a refund from Netflights who have stated they will only issue our refund when (and if) they receive a refund from AeroMexico. 😡   Can anybody tell me who my contract of sale is with, Netflights or the airline?   Is this even relevant?    Who should be refunding me?   Thank you for any help.   Regards.
    • All Talk Talk Direct debits/standing orders, etc were all cancelled correctly and set up for BT. Talk Talk took the money from my debit card details which they had retained. I have now blocked this too. I just want my money back!
    • On the basis it was a direct debit from the bank. Why did you not use the DD guarantee and insist the bank refunds the money.     
    • Basically i can claim for my excess and loss of earnings as i was self employed and cost for hire of van, solicitors have asked for uninsured losses, if lossess are not included in claim i cant recover them at later date the letter states.  
    • Hi All,   On 26th May this year I called my broadband/phone service provider, Talk Talk, to inform them that I would be leaving them and moving to BT at the end of the month.  My contract with Talk Talk had officially ended back in October 2019 and I was just paying them on a monthly basis for continued service. I was advised that I did not need to do anything, as arrangements would be made on my behalf to keep my existing number etc between Talk Talk and BT.  I began my contract with BT on 1st June.  I cancelled my bank payment arrangements to Talk Talk and set up new ones for BT. I then received a bill from Talk Talk for June's monthly charges, which I ignored as I was no longer a customer, I owed them nothing, and they were not providing me with any kind of service. I then received a second bill from Talk Talk for July's monthly charges. I called Talk Talk to explain their error but they insisted that I was still a customer using their services.  This was despite me proving that I have been a BT customer for the past two months and paying BT for services that Talk Talk are claiming to be theirs. Talk Talk then took £60.39 from my bank account on 2nd August, despite having no authority or consent from me to do so.  I complained to my bank and they explained that utility companies hold on to customers payment details (despite GDPR) and this practice is common.  I have now instructed my bank to refuse any further payments to Talk Talk, by any means!. I phoned Talk Talk to complain and insist they repaid my money immediately as it had been obtained fraudulently and they are not providing any service to me anymore.  The adviser couldn't help much, but promised me a call from a manager later in the week.  The call never materialised. I called Talk Talk myself today, and after nearly four hours of phone calls, being put on hold, transferred, being made promises and making more calls, I have got nowhere. One manager did offer a token £30 payment which I obviously turned down.  I eventually hung up after being put on hold for over 20 minutes during a call lasting over an hour. These people are ignorant at best and impossible to deal with. Please could someone advise me on how to get my £60.39 back from these people?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

It seems in each case, the bank use the 30 day settlement option to delay things, would it be worthwhile using this list to request the judge not to allow the 30 days?


Read, Read and Read some more.

 

The answers are all out there...

 

By the way, it's your claim. I only offer an opinion as another reader. :confused:

You mean when the judge orders a stay pending settlement?

The spreadsheet's designed to go along with the application to remove a stay, as detailed in this post:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/17065-application-removal-stay.html

 

(thinking on, I'll add a link into the first post here....:) )

 

Thanks for the kind comments btw folks, didn't want you thinking I was being ignorant :D

Mcuth, just a thought but it would be really helpful to myself to add an extra column to say what type of interest th case has been settled with.

 

ie Statuary, Authorised O/Draft Contractual, UnAuthorised Contractual.

 

Just a thought what do you think ?

I'm afraid that'd be impossible to state unless people started reporting it in their litigation posts, sorry. Besides, previous claims being settled outside court with Contractual Interest (authorised or unauthorised) wouldn't have any impact on future claims being settled on the same basis.

Could this not be used to sway the judge to strike out the defence, as, all the cases have had a defence submitted but all settled before a hearing.

 

I was thinking along ther lines of the Lincoln judge where he said they were abusing the court system

I was thinking along the same lines, if people start stating if they won with Contractual Interest, it may help others that are going for contractual interest.

Absolutely you can use this list of claims for something like that - abuse of process, where it's clear that the banks are using the court system as a "delaying tactic", etc... and showing that they've settled X cases without intending to step into a courtroom to defend them :)

 

I was thinking along the same lines, if people start stating if they won with Contractual Interest, it may help others that are going for contractual interest.

 

The only way I could see it helping is from a morale point of view to other CAG members.

As far as the courts are concerned, when a case is settled out of court, it's just that - a settled case - and the court isn't concerned about the arguments used within the case. Now, if there was a case actually heard and won, then there would be a reason to bring the detail of that case before the court.

 

Cheers

Perhaps i am being thick but i can't open the files. I take it that xls is an excel document(i don't have excel) but lit.settled is a word document but it opens with a load of strange characters and no word format.

Yes, the xls file is an Excel document - if you don't have Excel (or a version of OpenOffice that can read Excel2002 files), then you won't be able to view it unless you have Microsoft's Excel Viewer installed.

 

As for the .doc file, it is not an actual Word document - it's just the Excel file renamed. As I wrote in the first post:

 

"lit settled.doc - the spreadsheet renamed - if you haven't got any "zip" software, just save this to disk and rename it to lit settled.xls

 

The forum software doesn't allow me to upload an Excel file (or at least, a filename with a .xls extension), so I simply changed the extension to .doc so it could be uploaded. This way, those that might not have any unzipping software to extract the spreadsheet from the zip file, can just save the file to disk and rename it. I'll make this a little clearer in the first post of this thread.

 

HTH

This is an Excel spreadsheet of all settled charge-related claims as posted in the Litigation Concluded forum, with the exception of posts that didn't have a case number. It contains an "autofilter" which can be used to show cases for one particular Defendant. One suggested use for the spreadsheet is to accompany an application to have a stay removed (as detailed here).

 

If you don't have Excel (or a version of OpenOffice that can read Excel2002 files), then you won't be able to view it unless you have Microsoft's Excel Viewer installed.

 

There is 1 attachment to this post - lit settled.xls

 

Updated 18th April - spreadsheet now available in Excel format - number of claims is now 591 - total value in excess of £1m!

 

Cheers

 

Michael

 

 

Just a point about the settled claims - would it be to our advantange to put in some other dates eg date settlement offered, date paid etc

 

might be able to work a pattern and the judges would clearly see that even if they enter a defense there is a timescale /

Hmm, not sure about just how helpful that would be since the courts only have to look up the case number on their computer, and we're simply providing an indication of how many cases that the bank has settled.

 

Remember that the spreadsheet is simply data taken from the Litigation Concluded forum, and it's hard enough getting people to a) report the date that the case was issued, and b) PM a mod with their case details for inclusion in the first place! (I believe that the number of cases from the Litigation Concluded forum is only a fraction of the total number that actually get issued) :)

 

Cheers

Would it be possible to use this spreadsheet to apply for costs as the bank are behaving "unreasonably" by forcing the litigant to waste a lot of time and outlay more of their hard earned cash to persue the return of the litigants own money unlawfully taken in the first instance???? Possibly show the court that the banks are meerly abusing the court service in order ro "scare" people off claiming. I'm sure, as you's are also aware, there will be many who only have a few charges and simply don't justify the time and expense to recover them, considering the fact that applying for costs is generally speaking a no-no.

Indeed, you could use it in support of a request for costs - you're probably better off looking at this thread though, I know it's Lloyds, but it's a claim for costs based on the bank's unreasonable behaviour :)

Hi

 

Sorry for not updating you earlier.

The date range of the spreadsheet covered all the posts in the "litigation concluded" forum (as was) from the start of that forum. However, that forum has now been superceded by this page, where you can get all the details of concluded cases.

 

I'll update the first post on this thread with a link to the new page, and then close the thread, as the spreadsheet is now redundant.

 

Cheers

Michael
