    • Unless you have already sent it – which I don't think it's clear – how about this as an alternative:    
    • You mention covid holiday in your title.. did you have one and missed or deferred payments?   tell us the story please though a mortgage company rarely refuses for one default.there must be another reason   DX
    • Vodafone have a reputation for doing this although it hasn't happened for a while. There an appalling company and I think they are the most complained about company and have been find quite a lot of money in the past by the so-called regulator. Frankly I thought that they had started to sort themselves out. Sent them an SAR. They may try to impose some kind of obstacle such as a special former something or other to fill in. This is unlawful as long as they have no reason to be dissatisfied with your identity details. Separately – because they are capable of understanding to issues in the same letter – separately send them a letter of complaint and ask them what's going on. You might also want to try and deal with this on the telephone – but if you do then read our customer services guide first and implement the advice there because anything that is said on the telephone could be of use. However, don't expect this to go away quickly. They are incompetent and once they make a mistake they tend to dig themselves in rather than dig themselves out. Sent they SAR – and separately the letter of complaint.
    • Nobody here can say for sure whether you should challenge this penalty or just pay it because nobody knows if a court would consider your reason(s) for not wearing a mask a reasonable excuse or not.   But... my view would be that if you can get a letter from your doctor saying that because of your medical conditions (acne and anxiety) that wearing a mask causes you such distress (and/or discomfort and/or pain) that you have a medically based reasonable excuse for not wearing a mask, then that should do it for you - in my view.   You can then use that letter to challenge the police as to the validity of the fixed penalty, and if they don't back down you can let it go to court - if you want to do that.  I would expect the court to accept your doctor's letter at face value and quash the penalty - but nothing is certain!   Have you given your doctor/your practice notice of what you want and why you need it?  Have you explained that you have already received a fixed penalty for not wearing a mask, that you want to challenge it and that you need a letter explaining your reasonable excuse for not wearing a mask so that this does not happen again?  At my GP surgery I could either have phoned them up to explain all this in advance, or emailed them explaining it.  It might not be a good idea just to turn up for an appointment without letting the GP know in advance why you are there.   If your GP won't give you a "reasonable excuse" letter - and they may refuse to do so - then you need to think again.   First thing to consider if they don't is that you need to decide if you really have a reasonable excuse or not.  If you still think you do, then you need to decide if you want to challenge the penalty further or if you just want to pay it.  But if you do that, what happens next time* you are caught without a mask?  If you don't think you have a reasonable excuse, then you'd better start wearing a mask.   *If you can't get a GP's letter I have a few other thoughts but will have to post those later - I'm just going out.
    • It will be very helpful if you could space your posts a bit more. Well space makes it much easier for people to engage with – especially when they are looking at it on a small screen. I'm not sure how long ago was that curries could ever have been considered an excellent retailer. They've always been curmudgeonly about their customer support. All I can say is that there were times when they were maybe a better retailer because at the moment things are very bad with them. If you used have an account here then maybe we can merge them if you still have access to the old email address that you used. We weren't around in the eighties. We started in 2006. I don't see why you think that your previous history with curries should influence their standard of customer-dealing with you. Big Fail. Also, yes – failure to use a credit card – Big Fail.   I've had a look at your letter of claim. I can't believe that this is the standard of stuff provided by Which magazine. It really is verbose and goes into all sorts of irrelevant details – and in case you haven't understood it yet, Currys don't care about the problems they have caused you, whether or not their behaviour is unacceptable, your level of exasperation – you attempt to be reasonable to them by proposing some kind of negotiation (what on earth is there to negotiate here? You paid 100% of the money and you want 100% of what you paid for. Is there a problem with that?) Have you sent this letter of claim yet? You better let us see your proposed particulars of claim before you click them off. I have no idea why you went to Which – when you know that we exist and you've been here before.     Also, I have just noticed that you have given them 28 days to respond. Bless!

    • 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!

Deller, did you take your Cap One to MCOL/N1 stage or did they pay up before you got that far?

 

mickkane have you filed on MCOL now or have they still got time? We have 2 accounts with Cap One (now closed) they told me they were looking into my 'compliant' and told my wife they had refunded the difference between 20 and 12 qid to her credit card.. naturally ive written to refuse that partial payment and moved to LBA on on both, but now singularily rather than seperate accounts.. Makes me laugh, them crediting an account thats closed..

Some people have amended their spreadsheets to include new charges. If you do go to MCOL / N1 with the new amounts added, make sure you send an amended copy to Capital One..

You should accept any offer as partial payment only.. and that you will pursue them for the rest. There are Rejection letters in the Bank Templates Library. There are some links below to guide you.

Ok im due to file on MCOL tomorrow and have rang capital one again to see whats happening as still have heard nothing.

 

They told me they sent out a letter on the 15th march with an offer of £392 but it has still not arrived. They say they will send out another but will take about 2 weeks.

 

What would you all do, go ahead and file the claim or wait, just I am not sure what to do if after I have filed for the full amount I recieve the offer, can I refuse for it to be credited after filing for what would be more than what they owe me if they pay me this partial amount.

 

Hope this makes sense.

Ok just this minute filed my claim on MCOL, felt quite nervous paying all that money, anyway should get it all back hopefully.

 

Might need some help as I go along from now though, how long does this all normally take after filing your claim.

 

Thanks everyone and good luck

Once they've acknowledged your claim, which you can check on the MCOL web site, they have 28 days from that date. I got paid on day 21 (But that was Nationwdie) so they were cutting it close.

 

Cap One may be different ive heard they pay up pretty quickly after MCOL has been filed and im in the line waiting to file MCOL for them. So your about a week ahead of me.

 

Until then there is nothing else you can do except for read threads in relation to the A & Q that sometimes get sent out. I never got an A & Q with the Nationwide because my claim wasnt complicated. I might get one with Capital One though because there are 'other matters' outstanding.:-D

 

Sit back now, and wait then spend it all and have fun ;)

With my claim against Cap One they did settle fairly quickly, I filed through MCOL and the money was recieved before the AQ's were returned so shouldn't be too long for you now me thinks.

Hi everyone, filed MCOL on wednesday and have today received a notice of issue from Northampton County Court saying the notice will be deemed served on the 3 April and the defendant has until the 17 April to reply.

 

I have also received the offer of £392 in writing from Capital One today so this offer is after I have filed my claim, its the usual stuff with a part to send back if I accept this offer and will accept the complaint as closed.

I will obviously not be accepting this offer but I have seen a lot of people writing that they will accept it as part payment.

As I have already filed my claim would it be ok to send the letter declining the payment and advising them that I have already submited my claim to MCOL.

 

Thanks for any help.

Hiya

On my claim against cap one I didn't send a schedule of charges to the court just to capone, but it can't do any harm. They acknowledged the claim and said they would defend within a few days of service, but then sent a full settlement offer about a week prior to the defense needing to be submitted. IE within the 28 days. They don't seem to get as far as the AQ's, but you need to actually claim in court to get them to settle. Seems stupid cos its costing them loads in court fees, but perhaps they think it outweighs the people who drop out because they won't go to the court stage.

Good luck :)

Btw I am no expert just give notes based on what I have read on here and other forums/sites, plus my own experiences and investigations.

Hi recieved my acknowledgment of service today, there are 3 boxes on the form

 

1 I intend to defend all of the claim X

2 I intend to defend part of the claim

3 I intend to contest jurisdiction

 

I take it by ticking box 1 that is there notice that they are defending.

 

What do I do now, it has an address for there legal department on it saying documents about this claim should be sent there.

 

Do I have to send anything there yet.

 

Also I have recieved again an offer of £392 from Cap 1 today, I take it I can just ignore this as I have already sent them a rejection letter having already filed the claim on MCOL before receiving the offer, thanks for the help
