  1. Hello all, Long time lurker, first time poster. The wisdom and knowledge of this forum has gave me the confidence to ignore all previous calls/threats but this latest letter is something new, that I haven't seen listed before, so feeling a little anxious. ARC have taken over my QQ account after QQ failed to accept my monthly standing order payments and insisted on a DD only (we all know why). I have since moved to another bank and get my wages paid into that new account. The old account still exists. I received this letter this morning. ARC have been phoning me 3-4 times a day b

  4. Hi, I was a victim of identity fraud in around June 2012. "Someone at the time took out loans in my name with quick quid and lending stream". It was a lot of hassle at the time ( I went through the police action fraud, recived a crime number and after a month or so I signed a couple of letters from both companies and the matter was cleaned up. I also opted at that time to put extra restrictions on anyone else trying to fraudulently take out any more loans in my name. "Let me just say that I have never ever applied or taken out any loan in my life other that a mortgage for ou
  5. Hello,, Today I received a notice of intention to prosecute from Govia Thameslink Railway after an incident on Northern Rail back in January.

I have read around on this forum and have prepared my response below to the notice of intended prosecution, please can you offer any advice on what I should / should not included and also indicate what the repercussions of this could be?

  6. Hi All Really appreciate your help on this. I have googled and I don't think there is anything we can do, but thought I'd check here. My mother had a quote for £2700 for some building work. She Emailed the builder and he set a date to start work. She had a reply saying it was confirmed etc. They sent numerous communications. Then she had a reply from the builder on a fake Email address that looked just like his asking for £900 payment to secure the date. She checked his references etc and it all seemed okay. 2 weeks later the builder called her asking fo
  7. We recently had a flood upstairs and our downstairs room was destroyed. We've had no claims insurance for more than 10 years. We put in a claim to our insurance company who were dragging their heals ( like they do) they came and asses the damage and we thought the claim was going through. Then out of the blue we were sent a letter by a different insurance company stating we had to renew our policy. My husband had insured is twice by accident for home and content insurance!!!

  9. Hello All, About a month ago I paid online for a flight with a European Airline. Somehow (no fault of my own) the payment didn't go through although at the time it showed the payment pending. The next day my bank notifies me of possible fraudulent activity and thus locks my online account. Several days later the airline later email me about this non payment. Now I am back in the UK I have contacted my bank, and furthermore contacted the fraud centre. They notified me of the fraudulent activity was actually the airline getting into my personal online bank a
  10. I stupidly sent £300 to Olsson Capital. this was to trade in Cyber currency. My security on my master card had to be contacted to authorize the £300 payment. I stupidly did not take their advice, and I said yes carry on with the payment. then the next morning when i checked my account with Olsson Capital, I noticed they have taken a further £750, £1000. because I have authorized this one payment of £300, it has given Olsson Capital the opportunity to then take another lump of money. What can I do to get refund ? Am I cover by insurance ? Do I need repor
  11. Not my debt fraud hat trick I have been reading some of the past posts and found them very helpful. But I would like some help with my own problem set out below About five years ago the payday loan company Wonga sent me a letter claiming I owed them money. It turned out someone had used my name to take out a loan. With the help of my bank and a representative from Wonga it was established that they did not have my banking details and had not taken any money out of my account. I was asked to contact the police by Wonga to report an identity fraud. The police said

  14. Help – falsely accused! I have received ESA (contribution based) since 2011. After years of only receiving awards letters that notified of payment rates, I received an Interview Under Caution (IUC) a few months back, which led to me realising that having claimed my pensions early for medical reasons last year, that I should have informed the DWP. I honestly did not know this, because none of the awards letters ever mentioned mention this, the last time I went on the .gov website regarding ESA was back around 2011/2012 when claiming my pensions was the last thing on my
  15. Hi, I and my partner rented a property from april 2015 to may 2016 from a private landlord and moved out after a dispute with the landlord who would not carry out any repairs (a lot needed!) at the end of the tenancy. I then moved into a rented property from a social housing provider in May 2016 (my partner and I went our separate ways). Last month I received a notification from the local council that I owed council tax for the previous property up until August 2016. I rang the council and explained when i had moved out of the property and sent them my tenancy agreement for my c

  19. Hi Everyone, I am seeking legal help or guidance here as I am at my wits end with any Ombudsman, Sky and CIFAS. Over a year ago I applied for a Santander personal account as I had an existing business account with them, to my surprise they turned me down so I contacted them and they could not provide me with the exact reason why. I was also contacted by Santander who then stated that they had to remove my name from our Ltd company bank account. I dug into this and eventually the bank manager found out that a fraud mark had been registered against me and that was against they're

  21. I made a multi-stop booking with Opodo at 2250 on 10th August, paying by credit card. The stops are: Bristol - Cape Town Cape Town - Gaborone, Botswana (via Johannesburg) Gaborone, Botswana - Bristol (via Johannesburg) When I made the booking the screen said "Free cancellation within the next 1 hour", although there is no mention of this in the confirmation emails. I immediately realised that I'd booked the wrong airport in Botswana (we need to fly to Maun) so I tried to cancel the whole lot. But I couldn't do that online, I have to phone the office and it closes at 2000h(
  22. A bit of a story but I am very worried about something. On 21st April 2017 my aunt passed away. She had a son and a daughter (my cousins). She treated her daughter very cruelly all her childhood, whilst favouring the son and at 16 dtr left home, cut most ties, several attempts over years to put things right, no joy. Dtr now happy, loved, housed, and fed, all by her own hand and pure hardwork lol. However, the son is dishonest, used to thieve off his employers, and steal out of his mother's purse. He then set up a business with his sons and has been bankrupt three

    NHS PPC Fraud!

    Everyone please be aware of a NHS FRAUD which they say is "legal" and there is no defence! For many years I have had an NHS PPC (pre payment card) for my regular prescriptions. I was not aware that on my 60th Birthday, I would no longer have to pay for prescriptions... But the NHS did, and so in their kindness CANCELLED my PPC arrangement PRIOR to my Birthday (they say they will do this if your renewal is less than 9 months from your birthday). They say they wrote to me in Feb - but I did not see any letter from them them until April / May! They say they "wrote to me".
  24. HELLO Recently I had an car accident hit by the other car. I have the dash cam footage as well. the driver told me to deal with her wife (owner of car) and just gave her insurance company and showed me the email of the insurance. However after 2 days of that accident my insurance company told me that that car was not insured. Probably they might have cancelled the insurance before it commenced and they are not picking up my phone. I already filed a complaint against them with police . How can I get my car fixed? Do I have to hire the solicitor or can
