Well they can't get money via paypal. They could take you to the small claims court and ask the judge to give costs in their favour, but I suspect they would not want to pay the court costs or go to the hassle. I'd probably reply telling them to make sure vouchers are only usable by those they are intended for in future, pointing out the incompetence of their employees as other companies are able to implement such measures, and ignore it. Unless you're feeling generous and have a moral sense of duty to pay what you owe.

what was the difference, as in how much discount do they say you owe?

they will chase your for the money and if needs be get a debt collection people after you, and that will knacker your credit rating.

Best thing is to
1)either give the goods back (if you already have it )
2)sent it back to them for a refund or
3) just pay the extra since you werent entitled to the voucher

Its well known woolworths etc do this to people who have not been given the voucher directly just ask most people on this site, the first thing when you mention woolworths will be about them chasing the voucher money back

Only 25 quid, this is the first time I've heard of them chasing more money without a credit or debit card involved.

It's a fair cop, might wait until a second letter before I do anything though.

If the goods have been delivered to you then, as far as I am aware, they cannot demand any more money.
If you have not received the goods then they can cancel the order and ask you to either pay full price or cancel the order.

Think you are right, I don't live where the items got delivered either, the peeps there can do without the hassle.

Read the terms and conditions the Op will have accepted on ordering, in there it says something along the lines of any unauthorised use of vouchers and they can charge the amount of the vouchers.. so yes the goods can still be delivered and they can still get the extra

They won't.

They will send the bailiffs round instead.

That costs an extra £100 or more usually, as the Law (being an ASS) allows them to add the cost of their services on top.

And gives them the right to kick your door down to get, it or goods to the value.

If they do, I hope they do not pick the wrong one and visit your "peeps".

Try contacting Woolies and negotiate, possibly mention "vouchers used in good faith" and their incompetance (if that applies).

None of this is legal advice, if you get problems from bailiffs, ask the Citizen's Advice Bureau for help.

T&C on the website can't superceed law. Check with consumer direct. Last time the group tried this they were took to the cleaners.

Only court appointed bailiffs have any powers, and for that they need to take you to court. Any other "debt collectors" have no powers whatsoever and you can tell them to take a hike in whatever colourful language you like or call the police to get them off your doorstep for trespass.

As they need to take you to court in the first place, I very much doubt they will spend £40 or so in court fees and take a day to go to court over a £10 internet discount voucher.

Many debt collectors threaten credit ratings, but in reality the only way they can do this is if they take you to court, you lose, and refuse to pay what the court orders. As there is no credit involved in the purchase they cannot give you a bad credit mark. You can generally ignore debt collectors, but to ignore court papers would be foolish.

Seriously people need to read up on their consumer rights and what debt collectors and bailiffs can and cannot do and stop believing what they put in their letters.

Woolies can't send around Bailiffs.


OP tell them to "Do one".
They won't do anything for £25

Although need to beware that some debt collectors claim to be certified bailiffs and will come to your door and leave notes claiming they will return to remove property if you do not pay up. This is done to scare people into paying, and they hope that they will get away with their crime because they think the person will have a sense that they have done something wrong so will not complain, that and they think they will not have any understanding of their rights.

''We accept PayPal'' says Woolies......but how can you use PayPal at their checkout, as there is no option for it. So why does Woolies state they accept PayPal but really they don't?
#23
I don't want to alarm you but..............they will send a warrant out for your arrest - you will more than likely be jailed, lose your house and job, the internet police will ban you from using discount codes. Your family will disown you.

Shedboy66 is right OP, you should probably do a bunk to the Costa Del Sol before it's too late.

What did they say when you rang them? Obviously you asked the company before asking on a shopping forum?
