  1. I'm sure we have all encountered one or two whom we won't feel sorry for...
  2. http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/may/12/job-centre-posts-cut-2400 Nick Clegg and David Cameron's efforts to reunite after a fortnight of infighting suffered a setback when it emerged that the loss of 2,400 jobcentre posts is to be announced today, just a day after they jointly announced a £60m youth unemployment initiative. The Guardian has learned that the job cuts at Jobcentre Plus over the next 12 months include the loss of 17 benefit processing centres and five contact centres, representing nearly 20% of staff. The losses are part of a drive to rationalise properties
  3. It would only matter if it was a regular payment or took your capital over the limits to claim benefits.
  4. At least people have an outlet on this forum because suffering this alone would be much worse.
  5. I meant under their new guidelines they would have to handle this differently.
  6. I wonder how they would handle someone who calmly advised them that they had decided a 'rational suicide' was preferable to dealing with them or living at such a reduced level. I'm also very curious as to why this has not had more publicity.
  7. http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2011/may/08/jobcentre-staff-guidelines-suicide-threats Staff working for jobcentres and other Department for Work and Pensions contractors have been given guidelines on how to deal with suicide threats from claimants as the squeeze on benefits takes hold. A document sent to jobcentre staff in April details what it calls a "new policy for all DWP businesses to help them manage suicide and self-harm declarations from customers".

  8. And another Angela Hairs Your message To: Info; Sales Dept Subject: FAO Compliance Department Sent: Fri, 15 Apr 2011 14:00:01 +0100 was not readSat, 30 Apr 2011 02:32:29 +0100਍ There is something seriously wrong with this organisation, as if that's news
  9. Of course they have, that's all they are interested in, they don't care whether you owe it or not. Don't pay them anything, put them to strict proof of your liability. When did you last make a payment on this, any chance it is statute barred?
  10. Don't be silly! I was referring to YOUR situation as set out above. I thought you were seeking help dealing with DCA's?
  11. Any judge would only be concerned with the matter in hand and his/her interpretation of the letter of the law. They would have no interest in how you are handling your other alleged debts. I would never pay a penny without all the evidence being laid before a judge and a subsequent court order instructing me to do so. But that's just me
  12. And even after the letter quoted above yet another not read receipt this time from: Victoria Oliver Your message To: Info; Sales Dept Subject: FAO Compliance Department Sent: Fri, 15 Apr 2011 14:00:01 +0100 was not read Wed, 27 Apr 2011 07:23:19 +0100਍ What a bunch of tossers!
  13. UDS were Eons in house *so called* DCA last time I checked. It sounds to me like they are having a final stab at collecting old alleged debts. I would ignore it especially if all they have is your mobile number.
