    • Notice Before Action Dear Sir/madam You have lost the following items. 1)      P2G72688861 2)      P2G73791631 3)      P2G74330511 I understand you eventually accepted liability for these lost items and have agreed to reimburse the postage costs but not the values. You suggest this is due to my failing to take out additional insurance.   I am not prepared to accept your position and shall be issuing a summons on 18th August for £180, should you choose not to reimburse the values allocated to the items you have lost. In particular: Item 1) This parcel was damaged by your courier and rejected by the addressee. It appears rather than return the parcel and contents to me, your courier decided to throw the item away. Thus the item has become lost, and therefore (due to my not paying extra for insurance against loss), you have chosen not to compensate. Do you seriously expect to ‘lose’ an item on purpose by throwing it away, and then claim it has been lost and therefore not covered? Item 2) This parcel was lost and I made a claim. During the period of claim, the parcel was found and began to track. Ultimately being delivered (according to an email to the addressee, at 1.41 am 19 July 2020). Clearly the parcel was not delivered at such a time. You have subsequently suggested delivery was at a different time. Despite these suggestions of proper delivery, you have been unable to prove delivery at all, the addressee has confirmed he has not received the item and you have accepted the item is lost.  I do not accept you can be so careless as to lose an item twice. When I purchased this sending through P2G, I selected Parcelforce 48 as the courier. This service has a compensation value of up to £100 for loss. This is why I selected them. It appears however, you chose not to purchase this service from Parcelforce, but an alternative service purporting to be Parcelforce 48, but excluding the standard compensation.  This is not what I had purchased. I do not accept your claim that I should have paid extra for insurance for you to insure, when I had already purchased a service which carried automatic insurance. Further, the service was supposed to be a 48 hour service. The parcel was not collected within the 48 hour period, let alone delivered within it.  I consider the delays in ensuring delivery within the expected timeframe would have contributed to the loss of this item. I hold you responsible for the loss.   Item 3) This item was also subject to a claim for loss. During your investigations, this item was also found and started to track. Messages advising  "Enquiry resolved", "INT Hold" and "Out for delivery”, suggest the item had eventually been found. I do not accept you can be so careless as to find a lost item and subsequently lose it again, regardless of whether I had purchased additional insured. Indeed, the option to purchase such insurance was not available as the item appears to have been excluded from such insurance.   Yours faithfully

    • 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

unfortunately our new place has never had a bt line installed so they want to charge us 120 for that. I am in the process of trying to find out who provided service to the previous tennant but am having a HELL of a time in doing so.

Anyone know who doesnt use BT for line rental? I know its not a cable provider.

All the other companies wholesale rent the lines from BT (post#14 from Buzby).

They might not have had a line installed, and just used mobiles?

When i lived in a flat thats what i did, you got free mins on mobile contract so why pay for a home line, unless you need internet.

As PKea notes, the reason BT want the fee is that the line may never have been previously activated. There are only 3 ways to get a phone line, BT, Cable and Kingston Comms (in Hull). Many house builders pre-wire buildings, but if the owners doesn't have the connection made, it sits there awaiting the first customer to request it. However, what is the logo on the Master socket (if you have one)? If it is BT, they probably DID wire it up, so its worth pursuing them again.

Dear PKea

I am sorry you have not yet received any confirmation regarding this complaint. If you would forward this information to us with your account number and we can look into this for you again.

Thank you for contacting BT.

Yours sincerely,

Brilliant organisation, can't even keep a log of their complaints!!!!

 

I dont know whether to respond with all their log numbers, tell them to find it themselves or just ignore them now

Well Done, missm

 

I'm happy to leave to account in dispute for the time being, i have given them ample oportunity to resolve the matter and they have just lost the complaint details.

I will email them in a week or so with all their references but they want my bill paid so its up to them to sort the dispute out and then they will get paid.

I'm in no rush to part with £400, which is what i owe them, so when they sort this out they can have their money. I'm not going to their running around for them

Ha Ha

 

Got a letter from the 'PRE COURT DIVISION' of Moorcroft DCA at the weekend, the cheeky ba%^rds have added another £170 quidish onto the debt as 'clients cost'.

Also advised me that if i pay up, BT will let me have a pay as you go account with them.

lol, my line rental has gone to the Phone CoOp!! no more BT

 

I couldnt ressit but phone Moorcroft on saturday and ask how they were going to take me to court without evidence that i agreed to it.

I also told them that i had it in writing from BT that BT didnt have the evidence as well.

They asked me to send all copies of the correspondance to them. I told them that as they were the pre court division they must have compelling evidence already in their possession.

And that I would produce my documentation when they take me to court.

I also asked for a full breakdown of the costs added before i woudl entertain paying them as well..

 

They hung up...

Got another letter from the 'PRE COURT DIVISION' with bold letters stating 'NOTICE OF INTENDING LITIGATION'

blah blah blah

 

I'm going to send the cca letter to them with bold letters on 'NOTICE OF INTENDING COUNTERCLAIM' to match their letter as close as i can...lol

 

Also i have paid some of BT's money, the part i dont dispute, direct to BT.

 

I thinks its entertaining when you phone a dca and ask them to explain how they can take yu to court without any evidence, thay usually hang up there.

The CCA letter probably won;t be relevant - so expect a rejection. As to the 'Counterclaim' notice - I used to like this idea, until I realised it served NO purpose whatsoever. The time for a counterclaim is within the initial court documents. These customer responses are seldom, if ever read - and usually get scanned into your account file and no further action (by them) is taken. The computer runs the show.

 

If you want to keep things practical,you respond by REJECTING their assertion, give them notice of the reasons why, and state this letter will be used as part of any counterclaim you might consider.

 

Not as satisfying, but more practical if you do go to court.

You had to spoil my fun.....LOL

 

I am trying to draft a letter along the lines of 'harrasment' and 'sending threatening letters designed to intimidate', but cant seem to get it started as of yet.

 

Think i will just put that i have written evidence form BT that states they have no record of me agreeing to any contract. Also i will state that I require a breakdown of their costs.

 

Another thing on their latest letter was a figure of £25 for obtaining 'Judgement by Default' .LOL they are a bit presumptious that i wont respond to court docs and get they have to apply for J by D

Ok Then

 

I have decided to write one last letter to BT including a copy of all previous emails sent and recieved

 

To Whom it May Concern

You have proved beyond doubt to me that your organisation is unprofessional as it cannot even keep track of its complaints, let alone resolve them.

It seems that rather than dealing with the problem raised by your customer, you would rather ignore and send uninformative replies then just pass the account to a debt collector and wash your hands of the problem.

I will now only acept a full credit to my account of the amount in dispute.

This will be my final communication on this matter, and as stated on previous communications I will vigorously defend any court action by either yourselves or your appointed debt collectors.

PKea

Also i am teasing Moorcroft by making part payments of the amount I dont dispute direct to BT. I have quite a collection of 'You have paid BT direct. Pay us not BT' letters now.

BT tried to call me last night, but I didn't answer, so I recieved this email

 

Dear Mr PKea

Thank you for your e-mail dated 5/6/07 regarding the penalty charges appeared on the bill.

I am sorry for the delay incurred in resolving your query.

I attempted to ring you this evening at 19:05 hrs on the mobile number 07xxxxxxxxxx that you have kindly provided, unfortunately there was no reply. I did however leave a brief message to explain that I had called.

I would humbly request you to write to me a daytime contact number (a mobile number or your work number preferably) to get in touch with you at any time of the day, so that the issue can be resolved without any further delay.

Alternatively, you can contact our Customer Services Department on 0800 800 150 (Working hours 7:30 AM to 10 PM, Monday - Saturday, 9 AM to 6 PM Sunday).

Thank you for contacting BT.

Yours sincerely,

So I am just about to reply to this email stating that all correspondance relating will only be dealt with in writing.

 

You should have heard the voicemail message he left, took me and the wife ages to try and guess whether it was a recorded message or a real person. Glad i didnt try to talk to him cos i wouldnt have understood him anyway

Dear Sirs

Please note that all correspondance regarding this matter to be in writing either by email or post,

I would be grateful if you could provide a direct email to a specific person who is going to deal with this problem all the way through, as each time i respond to one of your emails, someone new gets involved.

How you can have continuity of client care with that system is beyond me.

No probs - can I suggest (and not to take the gloss of things) before you sign off on this, just do a quick £2 check of your credit file. As it's been around 3 months to resolution, it has been known for BT to log defaults in this way FIRST, rather than away a resolution. If they've been that shabby - you can still hit them for compensation.

Ok Will do later today,

 

Also i got a letter from Moorcroft yesterday acknowledging reciept of my £1 payment 'towards the account'.

Well that means they have received my CCA request then.

I'm sure they will be over the moon when BT tell then 'Your servces are no longer required'.

Then i will chase them for the £1 payment they have taken from me, might even have to get the debt collectors involved..lol
