Hi all, is the prerequisite for raising a section 75 claim that the retailer should have already been contacted? I bought a KS tv from curry’s and am awaiting the outcome of the arbitration by another user on this forum before submitting my claim. It feels like after lots of deflection, Curry’s have lawyered up and come to a different conclusion to JL and RS. They have even rescinded some of their initial offers.

Hi all, i have a KS800 TV I bought from Currys online in sept 2016 and have been following this thread with interest (it took me several hours to read through all posts). I paid with AMEX so know I have the section 75 open to me too but want to start the ball rolling with Currys first. Before I do so, I had some questions for the experts on this thread: 1) Tyler (and others) - there have been reports that Currys have been offering refunds of £800 less than the price paid. Can you confirm that your offer of £1300 means you paid over £2K for your TV? 2) I plan to submit several pieces of evidence in my initial submission to Currys to show I am serious and plan to order them as suggested by a lawyer on this thread. With that said: a) Ramos - would you be willing to sign an affidavit confirming the authenticity of the ADR ruling you got from Richer Sounds? b) Paul - would you be willing to sign an affidavit confirming the email you got from Samsung stating that they will no longer provide the dongle? i know this is strictly speaking not required but I am hoping that this approach will short circuit any of the messing around that Currys seem to be doing its other complainants. 3) Unlike the JL and Richer adverts for the TV, the Currys advert did not explicitly mention the functionality but as others have said, it is referenced in a knowhow article - can those with a legal background opine on whether that weakens the case materially? 4) Has anyone progressed their claim from Currys following a deadlock letter with either their Credit Card company, arbitration or court. Many thanks in advance
