    • When were you stopped please? HB
    • Really interesting video on 'growth' from some who used to be a top city trader.  
    • Thanks HB, i will take your advice 
    • Update: I wrote again to WODC and again they have failed to reply. I also wrote to my 2 local councillors and the Leader of the council.....   Only one of them responded, my local councillor who also happens to be "Executive Member for Finance" , and he said that he had asked the relevant officer to look into it and report back, then he would come back to me with the response. I haven't heard back and it's now a week. I'm seriously beginning to think that someone there has been alerted to the fact that they have fuffed up, and they are dragging their feet until they can cover their arse! Do you think it is worth sending a reminder email to the councillor that responded, or should I give them a little longer ?  I have stopped receiving SMS's from B&S so maybe they have been asked to lay off, but I have no sure way of knowing ! I also have the email address of the CEO of the council, maybe I should send him a copy of the above, stating that I am still waiting for a response and that I am completely in the dark about B&S.
    • There's no need to borrow words from another thread here; we don't have a template. Do this in your own words or it won't sound sincere and may not even apply to your particular case. If I were in the investigations department, I wouldn't be impressed by someone who copied and pasted rather than write their own letter. And please don't use AI for this, people can spot the style a mile off. Para 1 - tell them why you did it, no excuses other than trying to save money. Para 4 - tell them you're using the PAYG card. They won't tell your employer but you probably should if you're convicted. Covering up a conviction is worse than having one in the first place. ETA: Check if there's anything in your employment contract. As I said, you don't send anything until you hear from them because they won't be able to find your case without their own reference number. HB

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

my query is this:

 

i have a select account and a gold account with lloyds tsb and pay a monthly fee (used to pay £5 to the select but don't anymore:???:) but i do still pay £10 a month on my gold account, on both accounts i have been overdrawn over time, (i have overdraft facilities on both accounts) even when i have not gone over the entitled overdraft limit amount, they are stil charging me interest and overdraft charges, is this right?

 

also if i didn't have sufficient funds to pay a bill for example and the D/D "bounced" say there were 3 bills that "bounced" and when they came to take their unpaid D/D charges it made me more overdrawn, than if they'd honoured the bills in the first place, do i have a case?

 

hope that made sense

 

thanks in advance

Hi Lunar.

You do indeed have a case. You can't however claim back the £10 monthly fee as that is a charge for their service of those accounts. Any fees such as unpaid direct debit fees, bounced cheques etc can be claimed back. Take a good look through all the details in the FAQ section and start the process off :)

Pam.

 

If anything I've said helps you then please feel free to tip my scales!

Hi Lunar, and welcome the the BAG :)

 

As Pam says, best place to look is in the FAQ section. In particular, you'd also do well to have a read of the letters in the Template Library, and the Step-by-step instructions.
