    • It is deceptive, yes.  Booking through https://www.dpdlocal-online.co.uk  You can see reference to Parcel2Go.com Ltd at bottom of page.  When originally trying to contact them through the account I had a hard time of it as there is no telephone number or email - just links to help articles.  So I googled DPD Local and was told this:   On Thu, Nov 5, 2020 at 10:24 AM DPD Claims <dpdclaims@dpdgroup.co.uk> wrote: and later...   On Tue, Nov 24, 2020 at 3:53 PM DPD Claims <dpdclaims@dpdgroup.co.uk> wrote:   So I am taking action against DPD Local Online (https://www.dpdlocal-online.co.uk/ ) the trading name of Parcel2Go.com Ltd Despite this, if you click on  https://www.dpdlocal-online.co.uk/newhelpcentre/livechat and the Contact link you are taken to https://www.dpdlocal.co.uk/content/how-can-we-help/contact.jsp  (DPD Local)

    • Sorry, what you've typed above seems to be a bit of a jumble and I'm not sure what the various bold text and coloured text sentences are meant to be. Please could you just post up what you are intending to write. Also, are you sure the DPD local is actually P2G?   Who did you make your contract with? Who provide you with a receipt? With whom do you have the account? Presumably at the bottom of some of the documents you've been receiving, there are the company registration details for DPD local. If that is right then I would have thought that you should simply be suing DPD local. You have the documents in front of you are not me – so you will have to decide that it seems to me that they are poised to reject a claim on the basis that you are suing the wrong identity – and that would mean a waste of money and having to begin again. They are obviously trying to be quite slippery with all their their identities. I think you should examine your account and who you paid.

    • 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!

Have posted info on this piece and first live performance. Attached is the link to the Official Video recorded and edited in the last 48 hours. I have added the Consumer Action Group link at the end as you guys inspired me to write the piece. Admin Dave though the link would be fine as long as it looks like an independent video....

 

Hope you all like it. Content does contain an expletive and could be considered quite scary so please view without the kids around. I believe the video compliments the words and is a representation of how many of us feel.

 

 

Dont watch this if you may be upset by imagery of suicide

 

 

 

 

Feedback is much appreciated...

Wow - good stuff - really drives the point home. I bet there are hundreds if not more people driven to feel like this by uncaring and greedy banks.

Good stuff Matt well done.

Best Wishes

Congratulations on a well-pointed hard-hitting image. A sober message for all banks and their staff.

 

I suppose that the banks won't care but maybe it will help to jog some of the staff who feel ambivalent about the business of charges.

 

The bank charges campaign needs more people who know shat is happening behind the scenes and who have a sense of social justice and morality to come and let us know what is going on.

As long as your evidence relates to wrongdoing or iniquity then neither your employment contract nor the law will protect the bank or allow the bank to attack you.

We receive all kinds of information and are very good at using the information and protecting our sources.

 

This video is quite real. Don't watch it to be entertained. Watch it to become aware or to be reminded of the tragedy and grief caused in the lives of thousands people by the vicious greed of your employers.

Very Good, Mark.

 

There have been times in my life that I've felt exactly the same way, but i'm a coward, so didn't follow through. I'm mostly sorted out now, but only because I've found my own guardian angel.

 

People, please, please don't give up.

As long as your heart is beating, there's hope. Have faith that you are not alone, and there are moral people out there who are only too willing to help.

Hi Mat,

A very strong and well presented piece , well done.

 

HOWEVER,

 

I am very sorry to say that I know a lot of people on this site myself being one of them , for who this may be a step too far in the glorification of getting the message across . Although I like the piece I do not feel it is appropriate to be accessible through CAG . I have talked to many people on here in the past who have contemplated suicide whether it be because of financial difficulty or otherwise , I have even been very close myself in the past.

 

I feel I really must object to this being assosiated with CAG. I am sure everyone will disagree with me but , I have to air my own opinion as i STRONGLY OBJECT.

 

I respect the fact that you have pre-warned people of the content but as in life , wherever it says `wet paint ` we still touch it

 

Thanks

Jules

I strongly agree with you Jules, however, we are 'associated' so it won't count.

I like it as it shows the world what bank charges and debt in general can make people feel like doing. It gets a message out that some charges really can push people over the edge.

 

I know it is shocking, (shocked me when I saw it and I had heard the poem before I saw the video) but sometimes shock and horror is what gets a message across.

 

 

**Admin added the warning for a reason, if you are upset by this imagery seriously don't watch it.**

 

I read the warning - I am not that stupid, I can make up my own mind and have done so.

 

Swear and you will get shot down in flames, tell a joke that offends the smallest of minorities, it will be deleted - hang yourself in a mock video - that is fine, go for your life (so to speak).

I didnt mean it like that! I put that warning for anyone else who comes on here! It wasn't aimed at you.:( I am sorry if what I said was taken the wrong way I did not mean that you were stupid or anything like that.

 

I was just trying to explain why I thought it was good:(

 

I know, it was a rant in general and not aimed at you.

And what do you suggest the bank workers do about it??? Revolt???

I know that the material could be classed as 'sick' or potentially offensive, but the reality of this dilemma SHOULD be made powerful and emotive.

I can't help feeling this is likely to make people who are already under pressure even more desperate, it may be aimed at the banks but there are many walking a very thin line because of debt, do we really want them to think they can put the banks on a guilt trip??

 

I'm with Jules and Mum on this one.

I am happy that people are discussing the Poem / Video it has had the desired effect. I believe that if the video opens a few peoples eyes or push’s people into taking action against their banks then the video is a success.

 

I apologise if anyone has been offended by it but it is something I feel strongly portrays how many people feel and how I have personally felt.

 

I am currently battling HSBC to get £5000 of illegal bank charges back.

 

Thanks for ALL the continuing feedback.

Just to add my 2p worth, I thought this was very well done and it does reflect what people have done and what some CAG members have probably thought about doing, even if it was for a split second.

On a personal note regarding this, my brother was £43000 in debt, some was his own doing and some was the banks and he took his own life on January 3rd last year which was devastating for our entire family, so I am on a personal vendetta against the banks. Every single £1 I get from them I dedicate to my brother, who was only 43 years old.

BOS Prelim : 19/06/06 Owed : £382: offered £90.LBA sent 02/07/06, Delivered: 04/07/06. Offer increased to full £382 but with condition. Settled 4/11/06.
