  1. On each appointment I attend at Ingeus, I refresh my "work attain's" memory of when the next date of my signing day at the Job Centre (every 2nd Monday at 9:00am - I inform them the day, time and date) yet she seems to send me appointments for Ingeus in the mail for the very same day as my Job Centre attendance but for times such as 3:00pm or 4:00pm. I rely on public transport so I'm having to get to my Job Centre signing appointment at 9:00am by bus then I come home on the bus, then have to get the bus back into the same town for the Ingeus appointment again at 3:00pm or 4:00pm, and the
  2. Well, as you will probably have guessed, I still haven't received any letter from Ingeus for the 5th December appointment that I was somehow telepathically supposed to know about without any notification. This is just one recent example in a long ever building list of grievances I'm compiling of Ingeus, I'm still sitting on the serious Data Protection Act breach of my personal information that they still appear to be doing. My guess is that when I ask for the "mandatory reconsideration" that it's the Ingeus "work attain's" word of posting the letter against my word of never receiving
  3. Hi Mr. P, unfortunately I never got the comment in writing nor did I record it. I did ask them for proof of the proof of registration for sending it but they knew it was a lie and never said anything, oh and funnily enough as of today I still have not received that previous appointment letter from Ingeus (the appointment was on 5th December) The problem is, I may now be sanctioned over the Christmas and New Year period for non-attendance of an Ingeus appointment that I didn't even know about as I hadn't been informed I had said appointment in any capacity. Oh and I forgot to mention
  4. Last week I received a letter from Ingeus informing me I hadn't attended one of their appointments and it could affect my benefits. The thing is I've been attending every appointment I've been told to and I've been on time and punctual for each and every one of them. The letter read :- "IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR BENEFIT PAYMENTS As you did not attend your last appointment, we have arranged a new time and date.It is very important that you attend the appointment or contact us as soon as possible if you cannot make it." The usual information on the back of the letter a
  5. The letter I received in full is as below - Dear X X, Important information - your next appointment This letter contains the details of your next appointment. We look forward to seeing you again and continuing to support you to find the right job. Your next appointment will be: On: xx/xx/xx At: xx Location: xx With: xx It is very important that you attend all appointments. If you cannot attend, you must contact us as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made for a new appointment. Out telephone number is XXXXX XXX XXX. Your activities for
  6. Thanks for the feedback. The letter in question doesn't have the usual "mandatory" threat at the bottom. That's why i thought they were just trying their best to root around for information of job activity I had in my own time away from their offices so they can claim credit and cash if I was successful in any of them.
  7. No, it's no big deal to print off application emails but what I am saying is that I already provide my evidence to my job centre adviser each fortnight when I sign for my JSA, technically that satisfies my proof of looking for work so I shouldn't need to do the same with Ingeus as they don't pay my JSA while I am looking for work. I'm assuming they want to see evidence of the jobs I apply for so they can claim credit and the cash when I do find work? Perhaps someone can enlighten me if perhaps Ingeus would inform the job centre if I don't agree to provide them with "documentary evi
  8. I've received an appointment letter from Ingeus which gives the usual date and time of appointment but underneath has the following:- "Your activities for your next appointment are: Please attend appointment to review your work related activity, alongside providing evidence of job application. During your appointment you will undertake job application activity providing documentary evidence of vacancies applied for during this time." I am aware I am under obligation to provide my job centre adviser with said documentary evidence of job applications each fortnight to be paid my J
  9. Cheers for the information. The reason I asked is at my last meeting with my adviser I had shown him the emails on my phone by simply turning the screen towards him and shown him the list of emails of the job applications showing the employers email address or the jobsite in which i'd completed the application on but he insisted that i must open all emails and he must read them not just look at the the headers. When I refused this the advisers words were along the lines of "I have the authority to look through your emails on your phone and you do realise you could be sanctioned for
  10. What is the procedure for job centre advisers to check your private email account on your phone to see if you've actually applied for jobs and have proof of it? I currently have proof on my email account of jobs which i've applied for which I can retrieve on my phone but what is the actual procedure for job centre advisers to physically see these emails which counts as my proof in looking for work? Can the adviser demand I hand over my phone then open each email to read them or do I just need to turn the phone screen to the adviser and show them the emails listed without actually g

    Fourth appointment with Ingeus today. A 50 minute job-search on the computer then handed two A4 sheets of paper with two jobs with pretty vague details and hardly any information (a full-time cleaners job & a part-time 16hr job with a dry cleaners) and told to "read and think hard about applying for both these positions." I reminded my "breakthrough assessor" of the qualifications and experience I have in the actual field of work I had been in and I am currently looking for. So i'm now getting the "offer any old job laying around" approach so they can cross another person off the

    I've just sat here chuckling to myself for the last few minutes in the knowledge that while we're all accused of being "keyboard warriors" and "scroungers" and had a stern "naughty step" lecture on "freedom of speech" by someone who admits to, under their own forward "keyboard warrior" approach that somehow we're operating under a different version of "freedom of speech" than they are and that they were once a "scrounger" too.

    Personally speaking I'm neither a "scrounger" nor "a keyboard warrior" I'm afraid to say. I had worked and paid my fair share of tax and National Insurance into the system until my mother took seriously ill and I had to leave a good job to care for her as the "state" to which you seem to be on the side of said that a number of factors and situations regarding looking after my mother would cost them too much. To me, my family came before "the state" so me leaving my employment to care for my mother saved the state a fair whack of cash in the long run. When my mother passed away last year

    I've had three appointments with Ingeus so far. All three appointments it's had stated on the bottom of the letter "Your activities for your next appointment are....." and it goes on to say on each "to discuss your jobsearch activity along with agreed actions to date and confirming further agreed actions" Yet in all three appointments I've yet to have any kind of "discussion" with the person named on each of the letters. First appointment I was rushed through paperwork and told to wait for the person my appointment was with "to become available" as it appeared there were three people book
