  1. Hi All, Today I have received a letter from Moriarty Law: Our Ref: xxx Acc No: xxxx Amount Due: £185.88 Claim No: xxxxx Original Lender: Talk Talk Limited Dear Mr. X, Following our earlier letters regarding the above outstanding balance we have now issued proceedings in the County Court at Northampton to effect repayment of this debt. You will shortly receive a County Court Claim from Northampton County Court along with an information pack containing details on how to respond. It is still not too late to amicably resolve this matter and therefore please call our offices within 14 days on 02031264544 where our litigation executives will be happy to help and explain the options that are open to you. Yours faithfully, Moriarty Law I believe this "debt" relates to my previous house where I lived with an ex-wife. My ex took out a restraining order against me and so I was effectively kicked out of the house. I contacted Talk Talk who supplied the phone and broadband and told them I was no longer living there and they sent me a change of ownership form. I filled it in, sent it off and thought that was the last of it, and cancelled my direct debit. Until today, when I received the above letter. I have access to my Experian credit report and nothing mentioned on there about it either. After checking my emails, I signed up on 10/11/2012. After checking my bank statements, it seems the last payment I was for £10.11 on 04/07/2013. Will I definitely be getting a claim form or is there a chance they are trying to scare me into paying up?
  2. Hi I received a claim form about an alleged outstanding debt with TalkTalk from 23/03/2012. I have not replied to the form as i only received it today. They claim on the form that i agreed to pay in monthly instalments on the 21/03/2014, This is the first time i have ever heard of JC International and i have defiantly not agreed to any sort of payment plan with them. Is this one last dig for them to try and recover the debt as it is now statute barred. How do i go about fighting this as i really don't want a CCJ on my record.
  3. Hi all, Today March 30th 2017 i have received Northampton court claim forms for a Talktalk debt of £63.86 its been raised to £68.96. The form is dated 28th march 17. They date it back to 30/10/2009. They also state i agreed to pay this by instalments, but failed to do so (which is news to me). I vaguely remember when we ended the contract with them the paid me money that was owed to me. Moriarty Law are acting on behalf of JC international. Ive checked my credit file and cannot see any closed accounts or otherwise with Talktalk. Im reluctant to call these companies to find out anymore information. After a search on google i've come across statute barred and another situation extremely similar to mine that ended in claim discontinued. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?463115-moriarty-law-JC-International-Claimform-old-Talk-Talk-Broadband-debt-***Claim-Discontinued*** I cant post link due to less than 10 posts I don't know how to approach/resolve this, any help would be appreciated. Thank you
  4. Hello all and thank you for taking the time to read this. I am going to try break this down so that I do not end up writing too much... I currently work as part of a team within a charity which has been "acquired" in February, about 3 months ago now by another similar charity. Our team is on a contract that the original charity won and now we have TUPE'd over to the new charity on acquisition. Now this is where things start to get a little weird. We knew that the charity taking over also had a team in their area with the same or similar contract, with the same job titles and targets as us but are on different terms of contract from us. The two main ones being they have a better pay scale (by roughly £1,500 more) and have 28 days holiday excluding bank holidays whereas we only get 20 days holiday excluding bank holidays. I understand that under TUPE our contracts are protected, but of course, for us, this means we are on worse contracts than our counterparts in the new acquisition. We were told during our TUPE meetings that in the first 3 months, they would be looking to harmonise both charities, but so far there has been no word about this just over 3 months along. Recently one of our colleagues has handed in his notice and since left the charity. They have just put out an advert to fill the position and seen that although they will be given the same pay (on the lower end), they will be giving them the extra holiday entitlement, 28 days excluding bank holidays. To me this seems morally wrong and extremely worrying, I enjoy my job greatly and I hope I do not come across as a greedy employee, but I am feeling very demotivated, can anyone give advice or tell me if there is anything that can be done in this situation or do I just need to sit back and watch new staff come in on better terms and just deal with it? Many thanks in advance.
  5. The Office of Fair Trading has revealed that it is looking into the proposed acquisition of MoneySavingExpert by price comparison site MoneySupermarket.com. Earlier this month, the price comparison site revealed that is was to acquire MoneySavingExpert for £87m. MoneySavingExpert was established in 2003 by personal finance journalist Martin Lewis. Lewis will become an employee of the MoneySupermarket.com group once the deal is completed and will be editor-in-chief of MoneySavingExpert. A £35m upfront cash payment will be made as part of the deal alongside approximately 22.1m MoneySupermarket.com shares. There is also a deferred consideration of up to £27m subject to performance. The deal is set to be concluded in September or October and is subject to MoneySupermarket.com shareholder approval. The OFT is considering whether arrangements are in progress or in contemplation which, if carried into effect, will result in the creation of a relevant merger situation under the merger provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 and, if so, whether the creation of that situation may be expected to result in a substantial lessening of competition within any market or markets in the UK.
