  5. Hi there, heres the story, I paid for an early upgrade online with ee. the cost was £251 including the early upgrade fee to buy out the rest of my contract and the upfront cost of the new handset. Now I ordered this the same day my new bill was generated, however my payment date for this bill is the 10th of each month, it was not due for another week so I didnt see a problem. in the after morning after ordering I checked the ee tracker to find news of my delivery only to find it `timed out` it couldnt find any record of the order number in other words. I phoned ee to fi

  7. 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
  8. Hi Guys, Would just like to first say, yes i was stupid and i did a big mistake. But i would like to know a bit more about the law and what i could be facing. I am 22, i have already 2 x SP30 so 6 points altogether. I was driving from dover back to london when someone was up my ass, i let him go infront and did the same back to him which led us to go to around 110mph. When a traffic officer was then behind us with lights on and stopped us both. Other driver wasnt insured or even have a licence so his car got impounded and not sure what officer gave to him.
  9. I like to find quirky rules and laws and I have a strange one to share. Story >> 'Having been a practising solicitor for over 16 years, I like to think that I have seen my fair share of quirky cases. But imagine my surprise when I was recently asked to represent a severely disabled man who was being charged with drink driving while on his mobility scooter. I joined the case late in the day. When I met the client he had already been charged with the offense and had attended court and ultimately pleaded guilty to a charge of driving a mechanically propelled vehicle whilst unfit
  10. Hi, Long story but we moved into a flat in approx 2004 and lived there for 2 years. We paid a £400 deposit. My father in law moved in with us (landlord knew about this) and after 2 months we moved out and the tenancy was signed over to my father in law, with is as guarantors. Our deposit was transferred over to cover my father in laws deposit. So from 2006 until now my father in law lived there. Unfortunately just before Christmas my father in law died unexpectedly. He left no will and had no real money, (a small pension, very little in his bank account). He is not married, he had 2
  11. Hi My husband is step dad to my eldest boy and his biological dad has parental responsibility. We meaning my eldest son and my 6month old son and husband all live in Southport UK and my eldest sons dad lives in Bootle Liverpool but we as a family are looking at moving to Cumbernauld Scotland. Can my sons dad stop us if he has parental responsibility. Especially if we are saying we will bring him to him during school holidays and pick him up during school holidays this meaning he has no travel cost at all and would see him for 52 days during any of the scottish scho
  12. Hi fellow CAGgers, My son is intending to return to England in the near future (about 2 months hence) after several years outside the UK He will obviously need to rent an apartment and get a job (hopefully) What changes should he be aware of in relation to tenancy agreements, e.g. fees payable outwith the rent, TD schemes, etc. There will probably be an issue over credit checks - how best to approch these? Thanks for any pointers given G
  13. Murphy’s other laws 1: Light travels faster than sound: this is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. 2: A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well. 3: He who laughs last, thinks slowest. 4: A day without sunshine is like, well, night. 5: Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine. 6: Those who live by the sword, get shot by those who don’t. 7: Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool. 8: The 50-50-90 rule: anytime you have a 50-50 chance of ge
  14.

  15. Slightly unusual question here- my daughter had a minor bump that caused no damage as she rolled into the car in front of her in a queue of traffic. Exchanged details with other driver and expected him to bill her for possible scratches that couldnt be seen. However, 4 months later gets a CC summons for £770 for replacement bumper and other parts that were unmarked. Now, knowing about enginering and physics I worked out the speed needed to cause the damage claimed needed to be at least 5 times greater than the speed she was going and given the strength of the materials cars are made of it i
  16. Hi, Does anyone know if it is legal to defer arrears on a loan account without notifying the customer this has / is about to happen? I thought any business operating this type of method would have to let the customer know there was going to be a change to the account? by that I mean putting the amount of arrears to the end of the agreement which by definition changes the end date? Its a bit like implementing a payment holiday without the customer being aware of it? A good friend has just had this happen with a company she deals with and im almost certain its illegal?
  17. Hi there, i'm not sure if this is a little off topic or not, I was wondering if anyone knew of any UK based courses on the laws around money, a degree, A level, what ever is needed. To perhaps shed a little light on my situation, I've been studying psychology for about six years now (23YO) I only learnt so that I could gain the skills to interact with and influence others around me, which seems to be working. I am about to start a PHD in hypnotherapy to help refine the skills I've gained, to go along with it. However i'm absolutely terrible with money, although my debts aren't
  18. Hey I'm currently facing disciplinary action at work and was looking through the previous posts on this site regarding the law with recording and watching members of staff. A few weeks ago I was put under investigation over taking an 'unofficial break' during work hours. I was in my department, had finished the majority of my work, it was a quiet day and the cameras had supposedly seen me sitting on the floor doing no work (sitting on the floor is quite common with many staff due to the bottom shelves being hard to reach while standing). I work for a large retail company wh
  19. Could someone help me with this, my daughter had an accident in a major department store. Staff where told, and acknowledged by the physical evdience of that happened. I was in shock and had a very very upset child, when i have spoke with various people re the accident i was told due to Health and Safety law this should have been recorded. I contacted the said store, and got a responce that i refused medical care thus this means it would not go in the book. A- I never refused medical care B- I have been told even though we never had medical care their that its their responsibil
  20. I have been reading about TV Licensing recently and whether they are lawfully required or not. I have no personal objective here other than enlightenment. I DO have a linence and will contiunue to do so as I can afford it (thankfully I have a job) and I know that I would be harassed if I didn't have one. But that got me thinking....is the main reason that people buy licences because they feel that they would be committing a crime and be threatened/harassed for not having one? When I was at Uni (some time ago now!) I received all sorts of threatening letters (more and more red ink each tim
  21. I really need some help and some advice on what to do asap. Thank you in advance to anyone who replies. I am desperate right now. I am in the UK. Been out tonight. Got home and my mum told me she'd had a phonecall from the police. It is regarding a shoplifting offence that I have previously committed and thought I got away with. It was groceries. I am not going to go into details of why because it won't help right now but it's not the first time and I had a caution just a few weeks ago - I know, I know, please a lecture isn't goign to help, I know how w

  23. A friend of mine last year had an accident on a well known pier, through no fault of his own he slipped on a puddle on the floor and severly injured himself, anyway cutting a long story short, he was off work for 4 months and during a meeting set up by this pier he was assulted by a security officer. They then proceeded to fabricate a lie that he was rasist toward the security officer who assulted him, all whilst he was still in recovery for the accident. He was taken to court and won with all 12 Jury delivering a not guilty verdict in just 15 minutes. He has now been advised to proc
  24. The law should be tightened to tackle misbehaviour in banking, says the head of the Financial Services Authority. Adair Turner told the BBC's Andrew Marr programme there should be a presumption a director of a failed bank should not work in the industry again. Lord Turner said the FSA's fine was its strongest available sanction. Business Secretary Vince Cable is also considering criminal sanctions for bank directors. Mr Cable said those in charge of failed banks should face prosecution, a view echoed by Lord Turner. The business secretary said the government would launch a consultation on
