  1. My friend in his younger days was a silly boy and travelled on the train without paying his fare, he got caught and taken to court and fined. He has been paying back the fine (it was stopped out of his benefit money automatically). earlier this year there was a problem with his benefit and it got stopped for a couple of weeks, obviously during this time the fine stopped being paid. When he got his benefits sorted out he asked for the fine to start being paid againand was told that it would be. By this time the fine had been paid all but £45. Y
  2. My son's girlfriend has just been to the bank, £50.00 Income Supprt was paid in this morning, this was all taken by the bank and she is now £6.50 in overdraft. Can someone tell me what the next step is, I am prepared to fight this all the way to the courts if necessary, just need to know what the next step is.
  3. Already set up another account for her, before we dropped the right of appropriation letter into her, trouble is it takes the DWP a little time to sort paying into a new account and i'm pretty sure they intend to take the charges from her again.
  4. Hi, I am posting on behalf of my sons girlfriend. She has no idea what to do and I said I would try and help her. She is 18 and has held an Abbey National account since she was 15. She has gone overdrawn by approximately one or two pounds since she has had the account, never been a problem as when her money goes in they take the one or two pounds back and thats it. The bank itself was taken over by Santander, and since then she has had nothing but problems. She turned 18 early this year, and is claiming Benefits which are paid into her Santander account. At christmas she request
  5. I intend to fight them as I think the bank charges and taking money from benefits is highly unfair. Just need to know the next step. I will keep you informed.
  6. You need to get a letter into them for right of apprpriation as quickly as possible. There is a template on the forums. On the home page there is a link "is the bank taking away you subsitence money" the template is there. Make sure you take it to the bank, they may try and tell you thats its not legal if your over 18 but I argued with them and got them to accept it and provide me with a signed reciept for it. Then they should not be able to touch the money you need to live on.

  8. When I got home this morning I had a hand delivered letter, for home attendance from philips. This letter was for someone who doesn't live here and someone I have never even heard of. I phoned the company, stated that I have never heard of the guy they were looking for, I told them that I had a few letters in the past for this guy and always returned them not known at this address. I have held the tenancy for my place for over 16 years and this guy has never lived here (the person here before me was a sweet old lady). I told them that if the baliffs were to keep knocking at my d

    Thanks - We do put the letter back into the post every time and they still keep coming. A day in court would be nice it would mean we can get this checked out properly. The one thing she is worried about is that this person is registered at her address (which is what we have tried to find out from the DVLA and the police). In this day of identity theft we are worried that someone is registered at her address when they shouldn't be. Also if this guy is running non paid fines up under her address that would also affect the credit rating of the property and as she says she has never been in

    Hey there, I'm new to these forums but I think it's an excellent place to get advice My problem is my mum, she is a pensioner and is starting to get very worried. A few months ago she got a letter through for a parking fine from the local authority, now she herself doesn't drive and doesn't own a car - she never has in over 70 years. After reading the letter she realised that although the address was right the name was different (she lives on her own and has for over 20 years). She got in touch with the local authority and we thought that would be the end of it. Since then she
