  1. Hi I have received a number of letters (3 so far) from DCBL saying I owe £160 for parking in a disabled bay in Aug 2015 in a shopping retail park. I don't remember anything about this ticket and I'm not aware of having done this at all. They now say they are recommending their client takes legal action. I haven't contacted them yet and not sure what to do about it. Any advice please? Thank you for your time.
  2. You could ask them to do so, but if you have it then just pay it. Why are there two lots of £100? Sounds like this relates to two years or two separate accounts eg corporation tax and self assessment.
  3. Hi It did originally, it was supposed to be 900/month approx of which £317 was a personal monthly allowance. However, they kept finding ridiculous reasons for sanctioning me (eg my list of job apps was insufficient for one day or so) so I never got the personal amount for most of the time, and just got around £560 ish for rent. Then it all just stopped, with no explanation, until I got someone from some agency or other involved and they found out it was because of my pension. So I then applied direct to the council who awarded me £264 a month which, along with my p
  4. I filled in both Benefit Checker and EntitledTo and both say I'm entitled to approx £160/week in UC and c/tax support. So will be chasing that later and asking CAB to help as I was refused UC during 18/19 because of my pension. So angry with DWP. My local housing allowance for one bedroom is £172/week but I don't know what that means to me, and it must be included in the workings they both must have gone through to arrive at the £160/week. thank you for your help
  5. Thanks both for the heads up with the checker sites - I'll take a look now.
  6. Hi I lost my job at the end of August. It was a contract which ran for 14 months and they wanted to find me a permanent role but Covid got in the way. I have applied for JSA but have been told I can't get it because I didn't work in 17/18 or 18/19. I was on UC for a while during these years but that suddenly stopped because my private pensions take me over the monthly threshold for UC. My monthly pensions total £640 approx. My rent alone is £800/month then there's all the other bills. I have applied for housing benefit but haven't received
  7. Thanks, I've told her. Again. We'll see if anything occurs. But I've said to her not to put anything in writing to them.
  8. Oh dear. Mercantile have spooked my daughter as the alleged debt is in her name, with their letters etc. Today they texted her she called them, explained the events etc and said she was willing to go to court as she felt there should not be anything to pay. She told me they were very polite etc and asked her to put everything in writing to them. They mentioned something to her in the text about their not needing registration etc as the debt wasn't covered by the consumer credit act as there was no signed credit agreement. Help, what should
  9. If Im in and answer the door I will tell them to leave, and record it. But might be better to not be there. Thanks for the advice and for the register snapshot.
  10. Thanks DX useful to know. Two men is a bit mob handed though, so I will perhaps go out for the day or something. But if I bump into them I will not engage, just hope the kids don't see them - you know what kids are like, can't resist being 'helpful'. These lot don't sound very nice to be honest. Seems like they don't care what tactics they use.
  11. Hi We got another letter today, this time threatening to attend our property etc - I will attach a copy I won't answer the door, there's going to be two of them, and I will have young kids here - don't know what to do and feel threatened by this now. I will be scared to go near my front door or leave the house etc...... Help, what should I do? thanks
  12. Thanks Ericsbrother, that's useful to know. I find it odd that a posh golf club would still be pursuing this four years later when they've had £450 for the room anyway. Seems an odd 'debt' to chase after all these years.
  13. Thanks DX. So does that mean we should ignore it until we receive a PAP letter?
  14. The above named is the golf club in the subject header The letter was signed for and on behalf of PACE Credit Control, t/a Mercantile Legal & Commercial Services.
