  1. Can you double check your dates as my calendar says that February is before march. Did you get the notice in March 2018 with the alleged date of the infringment February 2018?
  2. This was quite prevalent in the US known as the IRS scam where there was an arrest warrant if you didn't pay there and then. It gradually moved to to UK. I know you've been caught out, an elderly friend of mine also got scammed this way, but this is a warning to everyone - please spread the word. Plenty of video's on youtube, even scammers calling police officers at their place of work.
  3. Oh dear. The HMRC will never ring you - they will always write to you. Never ever go on a conferance call as they can control your phone once connected, to make the scam appear real.
  4. Just waiting for their response. Aparantly, I have to wait 48 hours before Amazon will do anything
  5. Ordered via Amazon but sent direct from the supplier. I suspect it was damaged in transit. It's a metal post box and the casting at the top has a crack in the corner rendering it not weather proof.
  6. I ordered an item from Amazon, which was £24. When it arrived, I noticed it was broken and requested a return. Got the return label, but when I went to the post office, they said I had to pay. Cheapest was £13. Once I picked my jaw off the floor. I decided not to post it back at this time. What are my rights regarding this. I'm not willing to write off £13 for something that a paid £24 for!
  7. It's a scam - mark it as junk and ignore it.
  8. Glad to hear it. Make sure you get you UC application started as soon as you can. You see, they aren't all ogres!
  9. Please don't panic. I've had several compliance checks in the past. The people carrying out these are human as well and, as long as you are honest with them, it shouldn't be stressful and you may find that the world on your shoulders has moved off - a form of relief. Mine were about the make up my household and the benefits I was then claiming. With regards to interview under caution, this will only happen if the HRMC, or other organisations, feel that the subject may have committed fraud (I would use the term maliciously and not because of desparation, and they would normally h
  10. That was my understanding too. I see, however, in post #3 that you talk about an overlap of employment, hence the need to take leave. This is where it could become sticky as, effectively, you would be doing two jobs at the same time. This may lead to issues with the taxman and as an employer, I wouldn't be happy about that.
  11. I would call your workforce team, although the response may be, departmental managers discretion. As you've given them notice, you are under no obligation to change that date, unless you want to. If you are in a union, then speak to them. Simon
  12. I have the same issue and have had advise such a roll a paper tissue and jam it under the top of the mask where is meets the nose. I've found simply breathing out through the nose reduces fogging completey.
  13. Yep. Also planning to do a video walkthrough and point out where the mould was that we had to deal with as the LL was in denial about it.
