  2. Took a fixture out of it's packet and didn't pay for it when I bought other items of shopping at a national DIY chain. Was stopped at the exit by 2 staff. One wearing shop attire,the other plainclothes. I was asked and immediately admitted the theft. The uniformed staff asked me to come into the store. He took me to pay for the item with the packet I had discarded. I paid at the card self service point. He then asked me for photo ID but I only had my bank card. He accepted this after the other plainclothes staff indicated it was OK. He seemed to take a photo of
  3. A former Oxford professor has criticised a car rental firm for charging him a 'Brexit tax' when he returned his vehicle, even though Britain has not left the European Union yet. Lord John Krebs, a zoologist, questioned the addition of £2.19 to his bill when he dropped his rental car back to Avis in Marseilles airport. He said he was told the charge was a 'Brexit tax', because Britain voted to leave the EU. Lord Krebs, now President of the British Science Association, refused to pay the 'tax'.

  4. http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/the-simple-westpac-banking-error-that-gave-christine-jia-xin-lee-46-million-20160520-gozv5q.html Unbelievable true story linked above, where an Aussie Bank provided a young Lady with an overdraft of over £2 million pounds. It only picked up the error, when she made 14 transactions on Paypal on one day. I suspect that if convicted in a court, she will end up in Prison, but this Bank will struggle to recover much of the loss. Nb. Sorry to those people who clicked on this thread thinking that a free £2 million overdraft was available:madgrin:
  5. Good Housekeeping’s seventh annual Christmas dinner survey, which sets the festive benchmark for where to buy the cheapest Christmas meal, reveals that a basket of festive food to feed eight people costs a total of £20.26 or just £2.53 per person, based on buying 11 Christmas dinner essentials*. If you can't be bothered with faffing around different supermarkets, you can get it all in one place if you don't mind paying the extra http://www.goodhousekeeping.co.uk/consumer-advice/save-money/christmas-dinner
  6. Hi, i wonder if anybody can give me some advice.. I have just gone through a credit reference check to rent a house, i have done this before without any issue and even had a mortgage approved so my finances are good (988 score on experian!) . I work full time and have always paid my bills, i have no overdraft or credit cards. The letting agent flagged up a CCJ on my account from 07/06/2013 which was filed by Npower for £2,185. I moved out of this property on 01/03/2012 after only living there for 12 months. I worked 12 hours a day, 6 days a week and for the last 3 months i bare
  7. Up to 10,000 Axa pet insurance customers are being moved to NCI Insurance as Axa leaves the market to concentrate on "key products" – motor, home and travel cover. By August 30 2015, all customers will be shifted on to NCI's insurance books. NCI told MoneySavingExpert that it would provide "similar levels of cover" to Axa, and will "continue to insure any medical conditions identified while customers were with Axa under the terms and conditions of the new policy." But a number of customers who have already been moved to NCI say they are facing huge price hikes, part

  9. Start to get out of debt free from £2-00 a catchy title, but for the initial cost of £2-00 for your credit file you can start to get out of debt. You can only start with the first step. If the thought of being in debt is a hard pill to swallow, please be aware that as of 06/04/2014 there are new rules in regards to debt enforcement. If you currently are not sure if you have any sort of debt apply for your credit file and check it thoroughly, see if you have any defaults listed, if you do contact the creditor, ask for details via a CCA if appropriate, then come to CAG and ask f
  10. Lloyd's of London posted a pre-tax profit of £2.77bn last year after claims fell on account of fewer natural disasters. The return to the black follows the "costliest year on record" for natural catastrophes in 2011, which led to Lloyds posting a loss of £516m for that year, the insurer said in its annual results. With earthquakes in Japan, floods in Thailand and Australia and Hurricane Irene hitting the US, 2011 was the second most expensive on record for the insurance sector. However, 2012 proved easier overall on the insurance industry than 2011. Lloyd’s paid £10.1bn in claims i
  11. I ordered mine a few months ago, now I can't access it, I take it you can only veiw it for a short period of time. Need to remember to print it off next time.
  12. I received a letter from Advantis Group saying that they are acting for Lowell Group for an outstanding debt. They have said in the letter that if their client decides to take legal action and a CCJ is granted and I do not repay what I owe, they may then apply for an enforcement order, asking the Court to: 1. order my employer to deduct the value of the debt from my wages. 2.appoint a bailiff to visit my home to reover goods to the value of the debt. 3.place a Charging Order on my home or other property. I am really worried about this as I have two young children. They are saying

  14. I have recently had to arrange my Dads funeral and was asked for a £2,000 deposit. The total funeral costs for a very simple affair, came to £4,534.00. I was told,if deposit wasn't paid by the day of the funeral they would not be able to go ahead with proceedings. Considering I had only just registered his death that very day,I explained that insurance policies had not been sorted yet and I hadn't the money. They still inssisted I had to pay. Luckily my friend stepped in and paid it for me. As you can imagine, this was a very traumatic day for me. Please could someone tell me if this
  15. I'm facing a sanction because I turned down a below minimum wage job (£2 an hour). This is a door to door sales job with an unkown company that reeks of [problem]. The hours are 40 a week and it isn't enough to cover my expenses. I got a call from my training advisor who told me they are raising a sanction on me and informing job centre I've turned down an opportunity. I asked to speak to the manager and she said because I've been out of work what's the chances of me finding any job and that if I made commission I'd be better off. I told her if I get a sanction I won't have any money for
