  1. Hello, I would like some more information about taking action against a Director of a Limited Company (a self-employed contractor) for Slander. It is my understanding that "Slander occurs where someone tells one or more people an untruth about another which will harm the reputation of the person named. " I also understand that loss or damage does not have to be proven "if there has been any statement intended to disparage an individual in his office, profession, trade, calling or business." 1. Is this correct? (I can prove both the slander and the subsequent damage without dou
  2. p.s. thanks for the replies - I know how busy CAG is
  3. She is a permanent resident here, no plans to return. Presumably that's the answer then, if you're in the UK, you're protected under UK Law? That makes sense actually. Do he have any recourse regarding the exchange rate?
  4. My Sister worked in Germany as a self-employed riding trainer, paying all her taxes etc here. To cut a long story short she purchased a half-share in a horse with a horse-trader with a view to earning a share in commission when it was sold. It was indeed sold and my sister received commission in German currency which she paid into her English bank. Due to issues, the horse was returned and my sister re-paid the commission she was given back into a German account. Because of exchange rate, the commission converted back to German currency was less. She agreed with the trainer
  5. The "virus crowd" are the worst, I had the same phonecall. Unfortunately I am a IT tekkie by trade. They basically take you through a number of clicks and since they count on no one knowing about computers they basically enable sharing so that they can take control of your computer. Very very dangerous indeed.
  6. Hello, I'm having some minor conversations here about small stuff, and today for some reason, I re-read my Nationwide Card thread just reminiscing I suppose. It reduced me to tears. I can today hardly recognise myself in those posts, I was so immersed in consumer law its just mind boggling and at that particular time my mental, physical and financial health was literally being put through a meat grinder. What seemed like a never-ending mountain of documents and law was studied, taken apart and written, learned and practiced with the encouragement of CAG. I am still, most profou
  7. Thanks for the posts guys, this quite encouraging, even though we can't do that much about it. I think it's because I've been working from home of late and am noticing the calls, though I have had calls at 8am on weekends and as late as 9pm. I have done the "hold on a sec" and left the phone on the table before, I might just do that, it must cost them something to call me right? The overseas spammers seem to have us right where they want us and the situation feels very helpless. However, if it's a UK company outsourcing (surely must be?) then I'd love to give that company a good "£$
  8. Hullo, I've put this in "General Consumer" - however please feel free to move I keep getting calls from foreign-accented people asking me to complete a survey. I ask their Company name and was told "Consumer Centric" and I also asked for their Company registration number (and asked her to read it back in case she was giving me bogus information) and was given 02034754049 and, she tells me, they are registered in the UK. The only company I can find with that name was incorporated in 2010 and dissolved in 2011 and has a registration number completely different. If it's a UK compa
  9. Just one more question - one of the letters received keeps saying "under commercial law" - what are they talking about here? Do they mean something different to Consumer Law - would my sister be a "consumer" in this instance - since she is a sole-trading company who was called about advertising her business on a calendar. Just want to check we are not on dodgy ground? thanks
  10. OK thanks, is there some way he can respond to these people in a "final" way? (as in, we didn't ask for it, we don't want it, get lost) p.s. absolutely nothing has been signed. Sam

  12. p.s. sorry for attachment quality, that's photobucket not me I think you get the general drift though, thanks
  13. Hello, I have a query regarding a problem my sister is having regarding an order for an advertising placement on a calendar. My sister placed an advert for her business on a calendar last year. (my sister is self employed horse riding trainer, sole trader not limited company) This year she was recontacted by a sales rep with regard to placing a repeat-ad on next years calendar. The crux is my sister couldn't hear the sales rep very well as she was on a horse at the time of the call BUT she DID hear that the rep said that they would send something through in the post for
  14. Yes you are probably right, I have a couple of weeks off so I might pop in to the branch and see what they can do. Cheers p.s. he is not named on electoral, I've checked.
