  8. Oh come on now, you conveniently forgot your original post which went something like this: No, I don't mean a redirection. Many customers arrange to have their mail delivered elsewhere, not as a redirection, not payable and without ID. They simply telephone our delivery office. Your post clearly stated a postman leaving mail elsewhere was committing an offence, when in fact there are many situations when it isn't. As for the 'safeplace' product, anyone can ask to have something (anything) left in a safe place without paying for it, they can just phone the office (and do).
  9. 1) Rubbish! Anyone can ask Royal Mail to have their mail or parcels etc delivered to another address, left in a bin, a shed, or anywhere they want. I should know, i've been a Postie 11 years. 2) This is correct, just inform your local office that you don;t want any unaddressed items delivering. Anything with an address on still has to be delivered as someone has paid for that service.
  10. I'm not sure what you are talking about here. Recorded no longer exists, it's now called 'signed for', though it's exactly the same service. All recorded mail and all signed for mail needs a signature and always has. I'm a postman btw! Businesses such as Amazon have parcels which don't require a signature but are scanned into the delivery offices, this isn't available over the counter though. FWIW I wouldn't worry when a signed for doesn't show on the track and trace - they often don't as they aren't always scanned into the system to confirm delivery - they're way down on the list
  11. Although this exact story is untrue, there are companies that send out cards that look like the ones Royal Mail leave when they try to deliver a parcel. They do say 'there's a parcel waiting for you' and there is a telephone number to ring. Reading the small print the number costs £1.50 per minute and calls last 6 minutes. The 'parcel' is actually something of low value like a cheap MP3 player worth about £3, and you also have to pay a delivery cost to get it, so it does end up costing around £15. This isn't a myth, as i'm a postman and have delivered many of these cards in the l
  12. Thanks for the superb reply, I thought there must be something to stop this kind of thing or everyone would simply do it. I'll get in touch with my parents, i'm sure they'll be pleased to hear he isn't going to get away with it. Thanks again. Rob
  13. Hi all My parents have filed a claim against a relative that owes them money for a car they sold. The problem is this guy moves between his parents house (where the court papers are going) and his girlfriends, which they haven't got an address for. My parents have heard 2nd hand that the father is just going to bin the court papers, and when bailiffs turn up just tell them his son doesn't live there any more. Should this situation arise, is there anything my parents would be able to do? We may be able to get the girlfriends address, but i'm 99% certain she will just say the
  14. You're right of course. My sister telephoned me when the clerk told her the claim would be stayed, I told her to enquire why, as the OFT case has no relevance to credit card claims. The clerk went away to ask and came back with the answer that the judge is staying all claims regardless. The probable answer is that the courts have never seen so many cases since the whole bank charges thing exploded, we've been a major pain in the *rse and a blanket stay is a simple way to avoid it all.
  15. My sister has been to Chesterfield Court today to lodge a Credit card claim, and was told the judge there is putting a blanket stay on all claims. She asked the clerk to check that the stay also applied to CC claims, the clerk went away and came back saying yes.
