    • I had been away as i didnt have any update i had been only waiting for the mediation appointment to be given which is i think processed bit delayed due to their workload. I have been given the appointment last week.  please see below their defence .   “Thank you for your email. Firstly, please allow me to offer your our most sincere apologies for the service you have received on this occasion. As advised by my colleague when booking this order, you are required to enter the value, upon entering this value a pop-up message was provided requesting that you protect your goods fully, you declined this option on more than one occasion and accepted to send this with just the standard £20.00 protection against loss or damage. I am afraid the offer made £100.00 as a matter of goodwill gesture without prejudice is the full and final settlement we would be willing to offer. It is of course your prerogative to take this case further, however, I must advise that should this go forward we will defend the case based on the information provided previously and the following Terms and Conditions which you agreed to when booking this order: https://www.parcel2go.com/content/about-terms.aspx "The Extent of our Liability 6.4 We shall only be liable for damage or loss caused to you if it is caused by our negligence, breach of duty or other wrongful act or omission, and only subject to the limitations set out within this clause 6 and clause 7. 6.5 We shall not be liable to you under any circumstances for: (a) any direct or indirect loss (including, but not limited to loss of profits, or loss of goodwill); or (b) any other special or indirect losses, costs, damages, or claims which do not arise naturally as a result of our negligence, breach of duty, or other wrongful act or omission. 6.6 We shall not be liable to you: (a) under any circumstances where there are any material discrepancies (meaning more than 10% difference) between the declared dimensions and/or weights and the actual dimensions and/or weights; (b) for any damage caused by our negligence, breach of duty, or other wrongful act or omission, which you have, or you have arranged to be, repaired, unless it is agreed by us that the repair work is to be carried out and that a repairer approved by us undertakes this work; or (c) in any circumstances in respect of the items on the Prohibited Items; Damage to Items Protected for Loss Only; or for loss of or damage to the No Protection Items lists, unless otherwise stated by us. The Limitation on the Amount of our Liability 6.7 If we are liable to you for any reason, we shall (subject always to clause 7) only be liable to refund to you the cost paid for the Service(s), unless you have purchased Parcel Protection for your Consignment from us. " Again we do apologise for all the inconvenience
    • It's been sometime since we had from you. Could you just bullet point itemise the salient points in their defence. In terms of the requirement for flexibility – we always suggest that you stand your ground. You can make it clear to the mediator that the advantage them is that they avoid getting a judgement and incurring additional costs. But maybe you can just give us a quick resume of what has happened – and I mean Quick. By the way how long ago were you given this appointment?
    • Okay I think that you should write this up very carefully – a bullet pointed description of everything you have found supported by a photograph of each point of concern.   The next thing we have to do is we have to get a quote from some independent source for repair or replacement. Two independent quotes would be useful. Some people might want a fee for this but on the other hand they are so hungry for sales, that they may well give you something in writing free of charge in the hope that you will come back to them. After that I think that we will have to go for Vodafone that the telephone they returned was not in the condition it was when it was sent and that we believe that they have caused additional damage. We shall then have to offer them options to replace it or to repair. Let's see how it goes. Your son is 15 years old. Does he take an interest in this kind of thing because it could be a useful lifeskills lesson for him.
    • Just an update, i have mediation appointment tomorrow.  i am reading old threads, any more suggestions ?  On mediation form it was written i should be showing some flexibility , should i show flexibility or stay firm for my full claim ? 
    • I'm getting the sense you may be right!   Finally opened the phone. It's packed in exactly the same type of box we sent it off in, except this time there is all sorts of fluff and 'bits' trapped beneath the clear cellophane and the phone's screen which holds it in place inside the box (photo taken in situ).   On removal from the packaging there are fingerprints on the back, so it has been 'looked at'. I had wiped it clear prior to packing to emphasis it's 'immaculate and undamaged' condition.   Unfortunately, two small but obvious scratches or cracks have now miraculously appeared near the edge of the screen.  These weren't declared when I sent it off because funnily enough, they weren't there!

:mad: Hi Guys,


I just wondered if anyone is having the same experience as I am with Abbey and the quality of Information supplied. I started to receive the Microfiche information as requested starting from 01-2001 to 02-2004 great news! Then the information stopped and I started to recieve resent statements for the last years. This left a gap in my information of about two years from 02-2004 through to 06-2006.


This gap according to Scabby is covered by a ' Summary Spreadsheet of Charges' which they have produced. But according to this summary I didn't have a single bank charge in those 'missing' two years. Now I know full well that I was charged during this period (I have a sneeky suspicion that I was hammered by Scabbey!). So I have written to Abbey again with the template letter from here about Abbey not meeting the requirements of the S.A.R.


The interesting thing is also in the letter from Abbey about this summary it states right at the end 'Please note charges which have been written off by the bank will not be included in this summary'.


What does this mean? My understanding of written off ment that the bank didn't charge me? But my summary also includes refunds that I have had in the past year or so. I guess I'll have to wait until I get the microfiche information and then I will know the truth. But I do feel this is yet another trick used by the Scabbey team (and Pam - I'm not really bothered Speed) to make people believe that no charges have been applied to their accounts when infact they have been charged and are now the charges are been covered up by Scabby so we can't claim them back!!! DISGUSTING!!! !!! !!! !!!


BEWARE - Abbey are well and truely untrustworthy Scabs! (apologies for errors -quickly typed this message while at work!!)

I to have been dealing with the lovely Pam Speed who post dates her letters by 3 weeks before actually sending them??? I to had a gap period of about 6 months in the info I recieved and like yourself am assuming I was hammered during this time. I had to send two letters requesting my info, she lost my £10 cheque fee and claimed I had never sent it and then eventually sent what I asked for after I faxed a letter to the complaints dept with copies of all correspondance (thank god I keep everyhthing - dont trust abbey as far as I could throw them). I sent my list of charges claiming over 8K including interest last week and know it is in the uncapable hands of Ms Speed because I checked she signed for my letter on the 21st June. Fingers crossed this saga will soon be over - I look forward to any offer made by ms speed and will let you know how I get on.

Jen 78, It's good to know that we're not on our own! Keep fighing - it will be worth it in the end I'm sure !! !! !! Another trick by Abbey, when I called them today and told them about non complience the lady (Sheena) was almost laughing as she spoke to me! What was funny? I wonder?

Hi there are a few of us have had this spreadsheet pantomime with Abbey. take a look at these threads







It's just too coincidental to be anything other than suspicious. Why is everyone getting the same c****y info for the same period? Did they have a mega spring clean and throw all of our records away and then sit making up the spreadsheets?


I have lost patience in waiting and am going with what I have whilst still complaining about their non-compliance (it can only look bad on them when it gets to court) If anything comes up later I'll do it all again!


You might like to as a moderator to move this thread though as you're in the successes forum so might not get as much help as in the main Abbey forum.


Good luck
