I purchased a samsung 40" tv from currys 3 yrs ago and got a what ever happens policy with it. About a 2 month ago my son scratched the screen in the bottom corner, so i thought i would claim on the warranty, the tech guy came and said it would be replaced with voucher's when my old tv has been picked up. About 2 days later i received £700 in vouchers which i have used now on an old TV, and i still have my old tv. I have received an answer phone message saying they couldnt find my house and could i phone them back to arrange another day, That was about 4 weeks ago.

The Question is 1) doe's anybody think i will get away with keeping the tv as they are only going to smash it up 2) if so how long do you think i should keep hold of it for before i can sell it?

I know this is dishonest but what the hell, they make enough money !!!!!!!!

I think you should keep it, then get caught and locked up.

Also, this thread means they have proof you deliberately nicked it :)
#2
I believe you have to keep it safe for 6 months, after which it becomes yours.
#3
its not my fault they cant find my house
#4
delete the voicemail
#5
they make enough money?

you obviously dont read the financial papers! ha
#6
So I take it you have not even bothered to ring them back?
#7

nope, i havnt phoned them back.
#8

So in effect you are attempting to steal it?

It is up to the company to arrange collection and pick it up, which they have attempted to do. They have made contact, and and asked you to ring them up when the pick-up was unsuccessful, yet you refuse to do so. Yet it would be a different story if they were hounding you, day in day out.

I would just ring them and arrange a pick-up. it's not as though they have messed you about, they sent you vouchers within two days.

The amount of hassle i had with them getting my new tv, Wouldnt pricematch anything, used everything in their power not to do the deal, even trading standards said the where wrong in what their price match promise quoted.

It would be nice to get one ova on them though

I don't know if you are joking there or not, but you have just contradicted yourself with the article. Or I have misunderstood your post. "Quick edit it think it's the latter" sorry

Both parties know where the TV is located, and who has rightful possession it is. It's just that Ferrariflip is unwilling to cooperate, and ring them to arrange a pick-up

Just to quote the artical

" But what action is required often depends on what's found, says John Spencer, professor of law at the University of Cambridge.

"If you pick up a £1, you can keep it unless you saw someone drop it, as you would not be able to find the owner by taking reasonable steps."


And as I stated above, no item was was found, both parties know where the tv is. And who rightfully owns it.

I still don't grasp how they owe it to you?

You had cover for the accidental damage to the tv, they paid out and on the condition they collected the tv.

They have paid out the money agreed, yet you are refusing to cooperate with the returning of the tv.

its not your TV to make money out of anymore.
it probs wont be smashed up if its damage like that its probably gonna be re-sold on the currysauction site.

what wouldnt they pricematch?

so they gave you £700 to buy a similar spec but brand new TV to replace your old one that your son damaged?
sounds fair to me.

least it wasnt a house insurance job where you'd be paying an excess charge and probably a higher premium on renewal for losing your no claims bonus.

I was just trying to make the link between the Lost Property link and this case. :thumbsup:

They obviously do have your right address, as they have sent you the vouchers, and you have received them. If they can't be bothered looking for the address that is their problem.

As the article states, how long before it becomes "abondoned" and therefore you can take it?

It's a borderline case, which could go either way.

It won't go to waste...

It'll be refurbed or sold via auction.

I really hope the OP isnt intending to buy or sell on here as he has shown himself to be extremely dishonest and i doubt anyone would trust him on here with a sale,
#23
im not going to sell it on here.

Like i Said i would not sell on here and also i sell on Ebay and my feedback is >100 and 1 negative feedback which was on postage cost dispute. Im not a conman looking at every opportunity to rip people off.

If i take the risk and get caught i will take the cosiquence.

I have given them my address and with that the postcode to the address, they put it in their sat nav and that is where the problem starts, not missing numbers on the door, but hey thats a good idea lol nice one:thumbsup:
