  1. Hi Everyone - hopefully the good people of this forum can help. Between december 2013 and november 2015 i lived in a 3 bedroom small property with oil central heating. The electric meter for this property is not situated at the property, but some mile away in a field, via another field. When we moved in we werent able to take a meter reading, and subsequently couldnt for the 2 years we were there. Swalec managed an actual reading at the end of 2015 having not done one for many many years, and came up with a figure of £2900+ for the 2 years useage! I tried arguing th
  2. Reported in the Daily Mail. Kelloggs apparently paid little tax in 2013, due to some loophole which companies use legally to avoid tax. They has revenues of about £600 million in the year. Apparently they have issued a warning of less profit, due to Osborne closing the loophole in the last budget. I suspect that they will find another loophole, as accountants always seem to be ahead of HMRC.
  3. Hi Guys, Back in May I was stopped by Revenue Inspectors. During that week I had exams, and I had lost my oyster card which was not registered. On that very morning, I asked a friend if they had a spare oyster card and they handed me it. At that time I didn't think to ask about if I was allowed to use the card since he gave me the wallet and I tapped in. I was then approached by an individual who later identified himself as a Revenue Inspector. He asked to see the Oyster Card which I showed him and then he said you know you are not allowed to use a Freedom Pass belonging to an
  4. Hello everyone. I am a university student and I have been looking for some legal advice recently and i've come across CAG forums. Let me explain my situation. It was the 13th of december 2013. It was the last day of university autumn term and I was travelling from birmingham moor street to aylesbury station. All seemed well until one of the guards at aylesbury station decided to check my ticket and railcard. I did what they asked and told me that my railcard was expired. The guard notified his supervisor about the situation. They informed me that bu
  5. 11 months ago I took out a contract via Phones4U with Orange for a Galaxy Note. Shortly afterwards I closed the cover on a bunch of keys in my pocket, causing a crack on the edge. OK my fault, my problem. A month ago, the phone "thought" it was charging when it wasn't even plugged in, causing it to light up in the middle of the night and drain the battery. Also the charging started getting worse and worse, eventually it was so bad that just surfing with it plugged in would drain the charge in 2 hours. I tried different chargers. In the end switching it off and leaving it to charg
  6. A couple of weeks ago i was travelling from Crewe to Stockport and due to a change in my circumstances i hadn't bought a return ticket. I had to rush home as a close family member had been taken to hospital and i wasn't thinking straight. I ran for the train and just got on. When i arrived at Stockport, my head wasn't in the right place and i had said i had traveled from Wilmslow instead of Crewe. Eventually i told the truth when i had calmed down a bit. I went to pay at the exit and my card wasn't accepted in the machine. I also offered to go under supervision to
