  1. I purchased an item 2 years ago, no selling, just a purchase. I know I should have done something about it sooner, but when I changed my mobile number I tried to login into my account and it kept asking for to send a code to the older phone number-but I no longer had access to this older number, so there was nothing I could do. Yes this is my only debt
  2. Thanks Andyorch But can Paypal do anything themselves? I mean my credit score has gone downhill-no surprises there But what shall I do, can Paypal do anything? I mean I'm not willing to offer anything more than £10 per month to pay them back (like many others due to covid work issues) but I don't know what to do now
  3. Sigh! Hello all, Okay so I owe Paypal money etc and they've been constantly asking for me to pay them. Trouble is I've got a new mobile number, and I've tried several times to login and change, yet they keep asking to send a message to my old number which I no longer have access to! I phoned Paypal and told them about the change of number several days ago, today I try to login-and my number has not been updated! Yet they insist on a phone number (yes I know for security reasons, but what if somebody doesn't own a mobile number, or doesn't want to give it a Paypal?) So anyhow the debt has been passed onto wescott or westcott-whatever their name is. The most pathetic thing being wescottt sending me what clearly resembles a payslip and after having opened it, it says I owe them money blah, blah, yada, yada, yada. I cannot login into Paypal and cannot check what is going on, but I was wondering what will happen now? What powers to wescottt have?
  4. I asked for my hours to be reduced and the manager and his manager were fine with this.
  5. I've looked at their terms of notice under the contract that I signed, I find the wording a little confusing: 1) There is no clause 13.1 anywhere on the contract. 2) I left out 12.4-12.5 because they cover garden leave and the employer making you take annual leave-if it's left. I've e-mail Payroll and have asked them for a repayment plan, so shall have to wait and see what happens.
  6. The thing is I'll still owe my current company the annual leave etc, and I don't think I'd get any of the hours I've worked back in my final pay, as they'll take it all off, plus I'll still owe them. Is there nothing I can do regarding the current company? If I leave early I'll lose a lot of money, which is where the problem lies.
  7. Thanks fkofilee, Did you mean ask the new company to bring the start of employment date forward? But just in case things don't go to plan, can I ask the current company to pay back after I leave? I don't trust the current company a single bit, they've gone downhill in the past 2-3 years, high staff turnover, difficulty retaining staff etc.
  8. I'm not too sure, the company I want to work for are still waiting for one of my references-I have gotten my DBS, and all my other documents are fine. But if I leave earlier would the current company not make a big deal out of it? The other issue is that my partner works for the same company, and if I leave early, they probably would ask him questions about what I'm doing, where I am etc.
  9. Hello all, I wrote to my employer around a week ago to hand in my one months notice. They were fine but here is where issues arise: I reduced my hours from 28 to 18 in June, they've overpaid me, and want me to pay it back-by the 6th of September, this is when my notice period ends. I've paid them half, and they'll deduct the rest from my final pay. I was only told on Friday the 9th of August that I owe them 44 hours of annual leave, as since April 2019 I had an entitlement of 123 hours of annual leave, out of which I've used up 95 hours, but as I'm leaving in September instead of March 2020, my annual leave has been reduced, so I've overtaken annual leave, and it needs to be paid back. I do shift work, and due to what is available, I will have to work up to six days a week, and every weekend, I've already worked the past two weekends, and have to work the next few until 6th September. I'm wondering if there is anyway I can come up with an agreement to repay, where I pay them back AFTER I leave the employment. I'm asking because I cannot afford to pay all of the money owed, or if I do, it will be a very big struggle, and too much for me. Here is the part from the contract about holiday payment: Is there any hope-of partial payments after I leave, or will I have to work a lot, or pay back money I cannot afford at the moment. I know some will say that I should have thought about this a few months before, but I wasn't aware that a suitable job would turn up like this. Thanks for reading this, and please let me know if you need any more clarification.
  10. Thanks folks, I've written to Barbor or Barbon requesting a SAR, asking them for relevant details, and have told them that they have 1 month to get back to me. So I'll wait and see what happens now. Thanks again for helping me out here
  11. Thanks for your replies folks, dx100uk, I'm sorry for using swear words, I didn't intend to offend anybody. stu007 the problem is that when I told them about the harrassing flatmate, they appeared to understand, they didn't say anything about it. The problem is that I have no documents as stupidly I got rid of them-as I thought they were fine with what I had told them. I've just got an e-mail from them, now it's gone up to £7058: 1. What type of Tenancy Agreement did you have? If I can remember it was a joint tenancy and I was not the lead tenant, I'm sure the flatmate was. 2. How long was the Agreement for? 6 months for the both of us. 3. Did you give them proper notice to quit as per your tenancy agreement? I told them of why I couldn't live there, they seemed fine, as I then heard back from them telling me that the flatmate had caused them a lot of problems, and that neighbours had complained about him playing loud music at night, being noisy and arguing etc. 4. Did the Estate Agency agree to you moving out and mention any costs? (do you have this in writing) No nothing was mentioned-as far as I can remember. But I would be looking out for this anyway-as I was expecting them to tell me something-but nothing. 5. Was a Check Out done when you moved from the property? (do you have a copy of this in writing) I'm afraid I cannot remember 6. When you moved from the Property was the Estate Agency aware of your new address? I really cannot remember, however, they've managed to track down where I am living now (I've lived in several different places, since I moved out of that flat) You see this is why it's strange, as I was expecting them to tell me something about owing them money, but I got nothing, then suddenly Barbon decide to contact me out of the blue-demanding money out of me. As I said before I got rid of any information from them, as when I told them I'll be moving out, they seemed to be fine with it.
  12. Hello all, Today I receive a letter from barbon insurance group asking me to pay them £5919 for an overdue balance for a place I stayed at for about 2 months. This on behalf of Homelet I rented for around 1-2 months and then had to leave, this was due to the flatmate I lived with harassed me. I lived there I think around 3 years ago. I contacted the agency that rented out the flat, and told them that I didn't feel safe living there. I sent them copies of the text messages the flatmate sent me, they were threatening, and told me that he could harass me if he wanted to. The agency seemed fine with this, they also discovered themselves that the flatmate was not a nice person. According to them: Not once did the agency ever say, or send me letters telling me that I owed them £5919, the only thing they did was to deduct my deposit-which of course I was fine with. I see it as a really threatening letter and am fuming about this No warning, and then a nasty letter-forcing me to comply? I can't help but feel that there is something very fishy going on here. Has anybody heard of them? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks
  13. Yeah debit card-but this card I've registered to my Paypal account, Thanks dx100uk
  14. I paid via Paypal via a registered bank card
  15. As said before, here is their reply: What imbeciles
