  1. On behalf of my sister. Can anyone advise please. She was on Facebook and clicked on a pop up offering products for free with only p&p being required. At no time was she directed to a website or any Terms and Conditions and there was no mention of it being a free trial. Three weeks passed before her credit card company rang to say she'd been charged £200. She explained the situation to them and they said that because she'd opened the products and been using them it was impossible for them to do anything and she would have to take the loss. They did stop any future payments.
  2. Well now you know why your Local Library or Swimming pool is closing down ! No money for social care - because staff are being paid to prevent whistleblowing or criticism of bosses. Local Authorities are apparently requiring staff who are taking early retirement/redundancy or leaving after a dispute, to sign a gagging order (compromise agreement). It would appear that the person leaving receives more money if they do this.
  3. My elderly disabled mum has got a new tablet (gawd help me) She thought she'd asked for a free sample of anti wrinkle cream from a site called worldfithelp.com It came, she tried it and of course, was useless. This month she's had 2 payments taken from her card, £89.90 and £92.85! I've just called the company based in Aurora Illinois and have been told she signed up for a monthly subscription. I explained she obviously didn't know what she was doing. She's 75 and never used a computer before, they have only agreed to reimburse the 2nd payment taken once they re
  4. Hi, during 2015 I was at University at Brighton and decided to get a gym membership. I went to a few gyms checking prices and commitments and when I went to LA Fitness the guy that eventually signed me up (obviously trying to make a sale) lied to me, he stated that if I moved out of Brighton (which I obviously would do, as Uni does end) that it'd be fine and my account could be closed no hassle. He stated that all I had to do was be 8 miles from THAT PARTICULAR gym. Well I moved back home to Southampton, and went to cancel my membership stating that "yes, I had moved over 8 miles from the
  5. I moved into a new apartment just a month ago. Within a week, I got my first letter from Utility Warehouse: September 10th - I received a letter from UW demanding my bank details for direct debit, otherwise asking for a deposit. September 17th - Demanded a deposit of £100 per utility (gas/electricity), with a threat to install pre-payment meters. September 28th - Another introduction as my supplier and demand for £100 per utility. October 12th - Demanded payment for £200, threatening a court warrant to enter premises by force and install pre-payment meters with a further ch
  6. I put some £200 Alesis speakers into cash converters in Beeston Leeds last month. The speakers were obviously working perfectly when I put them in, as they get tested every time. When I got home with them I noticed that the volume was half way up, which was far far too high, I didn't think much of it, I turned the speaker down before plugging them in and playing something through them, at which point I noticed the left passive speaker was completely gone. I took the speakers straight back down there expecting the worst and they said they will test them, at this point it was sai
  7. This financial year sees the start of the new marriage allowance. More than four million couples are eligible for a tax allowance of up to £212, but you have to formally claim it. Referred to by the Government as the Marriage Allowance, it is estimated that more than four million married couples and 15,000 civil partnerships are eligible for the tax break. To be eligible for the Marriage Allowance, the individual making the claim must earn less than £10,600 and their higher earning spouse or civil partner earn between £10,601 and £42,385. This does exclude those wit
  8. I'm 25 from the UK. Just before Christmas I got really drunk and went out to do some last minute Christmas shopping. Whilst out, I decided to try my hand at shoplifting in Debenhams. I was caught. The police were called, but they took me home instead of to the police station (which was fortunate) after I told them that I live in supported living (kinda like a care home dealio) due to my Autism. They took me home and confirmed my story and said I will need to come for an interview. Long story short: the police cancelled the interview & dropped the charges after I signed up f
  9. I took a wonga loan for £400. I paid back £200 and then became ill so couldn't repay the rest. I have had constant phone calls from somewhere that are using all different types of numbers to try and get me to answer. I answered on Friday and now they say that the debt is £960.....for a £200 balance. Is this correct? I cannot pay anything like that as I am now very poorly. Does anybody have any contractual info on what they can charge and what they can't? Thank you!
  10. Banks are offering recruits up to £900 a day to work on interest rate swap mis-selling claims. Banks are offering pay packages worth more than £200,000 a year to recruit staff to handle the compensation of small business customers mis-sold complex interest rate derivatives by their investment banking arms. Potential recruits are being offered as much as £900 a day to work on lenders’ redress schemes, according to job adverts placed on the website of City headhunting firm, Aston Carter. Barclays and Lloyds Banking Group are understood to be the two banks behind the majority of the hiring.
  11. After hearing the same story from 3 former SSE customers recently.I thought it would be a good idea to start this thread as it looks like this was routine practice. It seems SSE advised customers who were looking to switch from them that they would need to pay £200 since this was their balance owing as their Direct Debit payment amounts were set to low by SSE. As some will know SSE were fined £1.25m for their doorstep selling practices see here; As a result OFGEM ordered SSE to compensate those customers affected. SSE claim that they need a few weeks to act on a complaint
