    • Just to update on this, received the anticipated reply from Packlink. Still chasing hermes every week.    
    • So I gather that you sent some parcels using DPD. They arrived in an apparently damaged state so that the items can't be used. The items were returned to you and you had to refund your customer. You are now out of pocket to the tune of the entire value of the items or at least the cost of repairs. You used DPD on some kind of account/credit system so that in principle you owe the money – but you are withholding the money because they didn't carry out their contractual obligations correctly and also they caused you loss. They are now threatening to sue you and they have sent you a letter of claim. I understand that you didn't take any photographs of the damaged parcels or of the items – on the basis that you weren't informed that that would be necessary. I understand also that you have had phone calls with them – but you probably have never recorded the courts so you have no evidence of what has been said. Is this all correct? You haven't told us what the items are and whether they are still in your possession. You haven't told us whether the damage to the items makes them a total loss or if they can be repaired. You haven't told us anything about values of the items or of the cost of repairs. We need this information. Also, I hope that you won't mind too much when I say that your failure to take photographs on the basis that nobody had told you to do it – shows a certain level of naïveté and your lack of evidence may become a problem if they do issue proceedings and you have to defend yourself. I suggest that it is axiomatic of any kind of dispute of this nature that you would start acquiring and storing evidence from the outset – and photographs are certainly going to be the minimum kind of evidence that you would require. You also haven't told us the value of the invoice sum which you are withholding. Although your post is pretty long, it seems to be pretty scant on some of the essential information. If you could please respond to these questions and then we will try to give you advice as to your position and the next step.

    • 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

I recieved a letter this morning from MBNA along with a list of charges and my £10 cheque.

 

Ive totted up all the charges and it comes to £624, didnt realise it was so much.

 

Here is what they say-

"We attempted to contact you by phone to confirm exactly what information you are seeking. However since we were unable to reach you, we have enclosed copies of your statement information. If there have been any transactions on your account as a result of manual intervention, they will be included on the eclosed statement information.

 

"On this occasion will provide this information free of charge and have enclosed the cheque you sent.

 

"Should this information not be sufficient, and you wish to make a full data subject access request under section 7 of the Data Protection Act 1998, please complete and return the attached form. Please ensure you include the fee of £10 and appropriate ID(e.g photocopy of drivers licence or passport."

 

I dont know what they are on about because that was the point of the first letter, i was quite clear on what i wanted, and they havent phoned me once.

 

Anyway im going to send the preliminary letter for repayment.

It worries me this does. Are you 100% sure that the listthey have sent through includes ALL the charges?

 

If not then I would seriously consider a full DPA request - enclosing the identity info they have asked for. Don't forget that the £10 fee can be reclaimed as it is an acceptable cost you have incurred in order to recover unlawful charges.

Im not 100% sure that it lists all the charges to be honest, i suppose they could have missed a few and i would have no idea.

 

I thought that was the point in me sending the DPA letter and the £10 cheque in the first place, they could just be playing stalling games.

 

I think i might have to send them the information to see if there are any more charges, just means it will take longer. :mad:

 

anyway cheers for your input.

It won't necessarily take any longer.

 

My suggestion would be to continue with your prelim for the amount that they have notified. If they offer to settle, reserve the right to claim for any extra amount that may come to light with the DPA information.

 

If they don't attempt to settle, and you have to commence court action before the DPA arrives, then we can look at the situation again.

Hi there

 

I just received the same letter today and totalled amount of fees on the list they gave me and it comes to £739.00. It also gave a phone number so I rang to speak to the person mentioned in the letter, but he was busy. Later I got a call back from someone who works with him and I told them that I would like to discuss these charges and about claimimg them back. She said that because OFT saying that £12.00 was acceptable fee. They are not going to pay any full claims back and that I need to write to them and they would look at each claim individually.

Thats a good idea alan , should i include a section in my preliminary letter regarding my right to claim any extra amounts?

 

Cheers for your help.

 

Edit: They have included a 'Right of Subject Access' request slip, so no need for an additional letter.

 

Saida, they put a contact name and number in my letter aswell, not going to bother ringing.

Yes, emphasise that it is a claim based on the information they have provided.

Recieved a letter from MBNA, saying i will recieve a written response within 28 days from the date of the reciept of my complaint. Also provided is a number for Gareth Tunnicliffe, Customer Advocate.

I assume this is a standard response to the preliminary letter?

 

Ps. Can the thread title be changed to be more relevant to the stage that im at? Like psbuk v MBNA etc.

I didnt think it was worth starting a new thread.

 

thx
