  1. Hi, I am in the process of getting payment from my ex boss through the small claims court. I have received judgement from the courts and would like to make a warrant of execution. However, the only addresses I have for him are his parents house (where he used to live) and the apartment block he now lives in. But unfortunately I don't have his flat number. Would I be able to just give the apartment block and hope that the bailiffs would be able to get his flat number from the people on reception at the building or not? Thanks!
  2.

  3. I bought a EE PAYGO simcard this week, topped up with £10 on Monday, the next day I rang EE to transfer my existing number with another provider over to EE, which they happly took. Once my number was ported to EE on Tuesday, the next day I saw a better cheaper deal with another network, rang EE on Wednesday to request a PAC code to leave, I was told to ring back today, which I did. I requested a PAC code and was asked how much I had topped up. I told them £10 on Monday, EE said thats not the correct information on their system I explained I boug
  4. I made a cash giro payment on the pre-printed T-Mobile EE payment slip at the bank in Oct, then in Nov I received a letter from T-Mobile stating my account was in areas by 2 weeks and it would be suspended if payment was not made. I got onto the phone and spoke to a 'customer advisor' in India who did not help me at all.. .he kept saying 'we have no payment I can't help you' I asked to speak to a manager, I was told 'all the managers are in a meeting' - so I said thats fine I'll wait, the advisor said 'i'll get a manager to ring you'...i said 'no i'll wait'... eventu
  5. In view of two similar threads regarding right of forced entry for criminal fines, it might be good to clarify the situation where the front door of the debtor's residence is not immediately accessible: Flat block with secure entryphone system no trade button Postie has access code Flat block with secure entryphone system with trade button Secure OAP extra care facility with entryphone, Resident might have a speeding fine for their mobility scooter when plates were cloned or camera garbles the reg no of a speeding car (actually happened to a Flint Pensioner) Gated dev

  7. A major crackdown on the abuse of county court judgments is announced today following a Daily Mail investigation. Ministers are pledging to block banks, debt firms and parking companies from sending court claims to old addresses. The move would halt the scandal that leaves thousands of families financially crippled because of debt judgements passed against them without them knowing, or having a chance to defend themselves. The pledge is made today by the Ministry of Justice as it launches a public consultation on the judgments, known as CCJs. It follows an investigation
  8. A client of mine has had her drive done and is not happy with some alterations made. The company involved are refusing to come back to put the job right. She has paid £4000, is 82 years old and on her own. What should she (more likely me) do? Any help appreciated.
  9. Dear Caggers, I need some advice. I have a contract with EE. I cannot afford the contract anymore as I have other priorities (my gas usage is increasing rapidly as it gets colder) When I got the contract, I was under the impression that the handset was "free" and the monthly payments is for a "service" (calls, internet, texts etc) not a product too. Can anyone clarify whether (when I default) my handset will be blocked/blacklisted or just the contract SIM? I have tried to help myself by looking for the answer but all stories are conflicting. EE s
  10. The war on mobile ads is heating up in the European Union as several mobile carriers are preparing to block these ads on their network. The latest carrier to be considering such a move is O2 UK. O2 & EE customers could soon be browsing the web free of adverts, as the company has admitted that it is in the “well advanced” stages of testing the technology that would see ads automatically blocked network wide. http://news.sky.com/story/1594267/mobile-network-plans-to-block-adverts-on-devices
  11. Hope someone can help me. I purchased a phone two weeks ago which was working fine until few days ago. Upon research I got to know the phone was blocked/blacklisted by EE. I tried contacting the seller, filed complaint with action fraud and contacted EE but no one is being helpful. Seller has switched his phone off and the address he used apparently he no longer lives there. His brother said he went to Pakistan. Action fraud I know they wouldn’t do anything. I emailed EE CEO and received a call back from the executive department while at work. I
  12. I've seen some posts on stolen phones abroad and massive bills. Please help someone... My scenario: I had my phone stolen in Spain and some criminal gang used it to make 369 phone calls (sometimes simultaneously) to Serbian premium numbers before I was able to report it stolen. This has left me with a 6.2k bill which I received on 16 Oct (the calls were made on 27/28 Sep). Not surprisingly this freaked my out as when I reported it stolen the rep told me that there was no suspicious activity on the account. I immediately called Vodafone and the rep I spoke to advised t
  13. My mother has been recently been receiving 4 or 5 nuisance marketing and phishing calls per day from one company so I rang BT on her behalf to ask for a stop to be put on the particular number making these calls as she was an elderly lady and it was making her ill with stress, they advised me that I could either register with the TPS which would mean that after 28 days, hopefully the calls would stop, or they could block it for me within 24 hours providing I was willing to pay for a £3-4 per month service. Surely this can't be right, requesting payment to stop harassment calls? I'm fuming an

  15. Hi, It's a bit long, sorry. A friend was burgled, and had his spare phone stolen. It is locked to orange and the contract had finished, ie out of contract. There was no active sim inside as kept for a spare phone. Insurance require IMEI to be blocked. The IMEI number was on a laptop, also stolen. So he explained this to '3rd party electricals' (who are dealing with claim on behalf of insurance company). They said, IMEI MUST be blocked, friend requested they contact insurance company to establish what happens in this situation and to call friend back. One week passe
  16. Ofwat, the water regulator, says it plans to block Thames Water's request to increase customer bills by up to 8% next year. The regulator has published a draft decision blocking Thames Water's request for the interim increase. Thames had asked to add an extra £29 to the annual average household bill. The draft decision will be followed by a short period of consultation to allow for any new evidence. The final decision is due in November. Thames says it has faced extra costs of £291m, because various items have cost more than the amount estimated when the price regime was s
  17. Hello, I live in a small block of four flats, each of which faces a small communal hallway with a single shared door onto the street. We all have the same landlord, who owns the freehold on the building. One of my neighbours appears to use their flat as a second home, and post stacks up for a few weeks at a time, after which they only return for a single night. They also appear to owe a year's council tax and baillifs appeared today to try and recover the debt, but did not get past the communal door. Regarding the bailiffs: Do the bailiffs have a right to force entry on our
