  2. I was recently made aware of an attempt by fraudsters to obtain my relatives debit card details. MR is over 70 years old. The call came one Saturday night at about 9pm and he used MR's name. The caller identified himself as a detective at Paddington Green police station and said they had apprehended someone on suspicion of debit card fraud. He asked that MR check to see if he still had his debit card in his possession. He confirmed that he did. The caller said he suspected MR's card had been, or was about to be, cloned but he needed to verify this by confirming the card account number. Luckily, MR smelled a rat for various reasons and said his card was for a NatWest a/c which was untrue. The caller said, "Yes, that's the one." and tried to get MR to give the card details so he could avoid his a/c being emptied. When MR asked a few more questions, the caller passed the phone to someone else who continued to try and reassure MR that they were genuine police but they needed to act quickly to avoid MR losing his money. They obviously felt they were not going to get MR to fall for it and said they'd make enquiries and call back. They never did. This topic has been the subject of various reports in the media recently and the sc@m has been labelled VISHING, short for Voice Phishing. The Daily Telegraph reported the matter last Saturday - https://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/10269196/Elderly-hit-by-new-telephone-[problem].html&sa=U&ei=W_QoUtSrAYap4gTLioHABw&ved=0CAcQFjAA&client=internal-uds-cse&usg=AFQjCNG-Rku_cMOvrlnlz8nJkc4QfnvoMw It may be wise to warn elderly relatives that they should speak to someone they know and trust before giving out any details. The press reports that many folk have had money taken and accounts emptied as a result of this tactic.
  3. http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2013/mar/21/jobcentre-set-targets-benefit-sanctions After grinding my teeth down watching question time, I saw this, suspected for so long and now confirmed. Everyone with me in believing this is not an 'isolated case'?
  4. Hi, do the JCP job advisers have any sort of weekly/monthly targets to meet? i.e. number of claimants removed from benefits, got back into employment etc; I am trying to get back into the financial services area from which I have recently just lost my job, I have a JSA set of job seeking targets to meet each week which I exceed, yet my adviser doesn't seem happy with that and complains that I am not focused enough! However he now seems to be pushing me towards applying for much lower paid jobs, outside of my work history/experience, which may involve shift work. Any suggestions as to what is going on? Should I be concerned?

  6. Please read this very carefully. As you may be aware jbw enforcement limited has recently changed name and has also been reincorporated. As follows : J.B.W. GROUP LIMITED MIDAS HOUSE 62 GOLDSWORTH ROAD WOKING SURREY GU21 6LQ Company No. 04118149Status: Active Date of Incorporation: 01/12/2000 Country of Origin: United Kingdom Company Type: Private Limited Company Nature of Business (SIC(03)): 7487 - Other business activities Accounting Reference Date: 31/03 Last Accounts Made Up To: 31/03/2007 (FULL) Next Accounts Due: 31/01/2009 Last Return Made Up To: 01/12/2007 Next Return Due: 29/12/2008 Last Members List: 01/12/2007 Previous Names:Date of changePrevious Name25/09/2008J.B.W. ENFORCEMENT LIMITEDSo jbw 1 is now jbw group limited as of 25/09/08 look below and you have the new jbw enforcement limited which was incorporated on 25/09/08 Name & Registered Office: J.B.W. ENFORCEMENT LIMITED 16 HEWETT STREET LONDON ENGLAND EC2A 3NN Company No. 06708297 Status: Active Date of Incorporation: 25/09/2008 Country of Origin: United Kingdom Company Type: Private Limited Company Nature of Business (SIC(03)): None Supplied Accounting Reference Date: 30/09 Last Accounts Made Up To: (NO ACCOUNTS FILED) Next Accounts Due: 25/06/2010 Last Return Made Up To: Next Return Due: 23/10/2009 The catch. If you were levied on by jbw enforcement ltd on or before the 25/09/08 then you need to address all complaints/claims etc to jbw group limited. If you are levied on after the 25/09/08 then it is jbw enforcement limited which you need to complain or claim against. It would not come as a surprise to anybody if jbw again change their name. How ever recently jbw enforcement 1 bought out the debt collector tj meagher. According to companies house this company is in liquidation. However this does not stop anybody from buying the debt ledger at silly money and then collecting of people ?
