  1. On the 13th of Jan 2018, changes came into effect to stop companies adding on fees for people using a card to pay with. I was under the impression that this was now illegal. The other day I went into a Premier Stores franchise and bought a few items, came to less than £7... But when I went to pay, the price had jumped to £7.17... I queried my it had gone up and was told there was a 50p charge for using a card. I pointed out that this was now illegal, but they were adamant they were allowed to do it. I told them under no circumstances was I accepting it and that they'd lost my business... and left. I then left feedback/reviews online to warn others. But what 'exactly' is and isn't allowed now? I read that one of those takeaway delivery apps that used to charge extra for card payments as now simply extended the charge to 'ALL' types of payments, and that's supposedly legal as they're branding it a delivery charge rather than a 'card fee'. If the shop is acting illegally, where do I report it?
  2. Hi there, Can anyone kindly advise - Parking Charge of £100 received for not displaying BB in Disabled Space, at night in a large Retail Park from UKPC. I don't have a BB and I'm not disabled. I didn't see any signs for UKPC in that area and it was very dark - I only saw them afterward driving home once I had received the ticket. I took a photo to demonstrate that there were no signs in front of the car. Should I just ignore this. Or should I contact UKPC to say that I wish to contest this. I parked there because it was late at night and the car park was extremely busy and as I didn't see any enforcement I didn't think it would be a problem. I was rushing to meet a friend and didn't want to be late for the cinema. The vehicle is not owned by me - it's a leased vehicle via my brother's firm.
  3. I am currently registered as a single person living at my address and I get the single person discount. My girlfriend moved in January 1st and I need to update my council tax. I want to check if I would get into trouble for not updating this sooner, can they back date it?
  4. Really need some advice as to what to do first,, do I call Lowell ? How do I respond to the forms I know there is a deadline we have to meet. My boyfriend has received a claim form from a Vodafone contract he had no choice but to cancel due to the recession, he had no work and got himself in a bit of a mess which he is still in the process of sorting out. At the time he did visit the citizens advice who helped him, they advised he offer to pay Vodafone £1 per month which they declined. I have copies of most of his bills from 2005 onwards, sadly the copies he gave the CAB are missing which are the crutial ones, however I have bank statements showing his regualr payments to cover the missing vodafone bills. He had been a customer with them since 2005, they had one dispute in 2008 when his bill suddenly jumped for one month to over £200 which was rectified/reduced as it was an "error", apart from that he was a loyal Vodafone customer until 2010. He disputed the last two bills they sent him, he received one for £205 and called them to dispute it, he was told they were looking into it, he decided not to use the phone during the last month to see what would happen, he purchased a PAYG phone from Tesco, Vodafone still sent him a bill for £211 which the bank rejected as he had no funds to cover it. Prior to this all his bills were between £80-90 per month, he never followed up on the dispute he raised as in his eyes they had taken £205 the previous month which he had not incurred, plus at this point he was not in a great place in terms of his mental health due to being out of work and unable to live/survive financially. Ironically if you look at the call records of his phone he barely used it ! Vodafone wrote him two letters 4/1/11 saying he owed £326.97 then 14/2/11 stating £575.24 was owed. He heard nothing then until now when he received the claim form from Lowell saying he now owes £751.26. What should we do? I have read lots of other threads but feel this one is slightly different. Please help
  5. The Festival of Winter Walks was set up by Britain's walking charity, Ramblers. Their aim is to make walking paths safer and encourage people to do more walking. And this year, they want you to go out walking over the Christmas period! There will be hundreds of free woodland walks taking place all over the country between 19 December 2015 and 3 January 2016. It's a great way to burn off that Christmas dinner and have fun doing it together with your loved ones. Depending on how much you feel like doing, there will be short, easy trails you can enjoy with family and more challenging walks for the experienced hiker! http://www.ramblers.org.uk/winterwalks
  6. If you are one of the many people who have had their phone stolen by this crowd then you are a creditor of the company. If you have a judgment against them then you are a preferred creditor. Please spread the word on this meeting to Facebook, Twitter - and of course - other victims.
