  1. I will try and be as brief as possible with this. My partner hired a taxi from a local cab hire firm back in July 2017. He paid a deposit on taking the car. The original car had a lot of problems and kept getting taken into the garage for repairs. As it was licensed to another county, they could not provide another vehicle when repairs were being made and therefore could not work. Another time with this particular car, was told it was repaired, filled the tank £50 and then it broke down again (no recovery or breakdown service offered either, despite paying £200 per we

  3. Hi Quick bit of advice needed regarding filling out financial statements which has been requested by my ex local authority. Basically we have outstanding council tax debt with North Herts Council from around 6+ years ago. they got a court order and we was paying this off at £20 a month which we agreed with them. About a year ago they decided that they wasn't going to accept £20 a month any more and wanted £40, well we told them this was unaffordable and payments ceased. This has now escalated to Bailiff levels so we contacted the Council to say we weren't going to give the
  4. When my husband died last year we were in arrears with our Council Tax. I went to the Council and an arrangement was put in place which I've adhered to. Until yesterday, no problem. Yesterday, two letters come through the post from Ross & Roberts addressed to my husband. They were pay up within 7 days or we will take you to Court letters. Being somewhat bemused by these letters, I had a vision of letting them take my husband to Court, me going to Court to "represent" my husband and asking the Judge if the Court could employ the services of a Medium so my
  5. Can any legal buffs tell me if the Microlise "Spy in the cab" system, as some call it, can be used in a disciplinary, or does the employer have to rely on the CCTV system that is installed?. I was on the understanding that the microlise syatem was to check on drivers standards of driving, not whether they missed part of a route or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Hello, I have a problem, I have some debts with Lending Stream, I approached the CAB and informed lending stream of this and gave them a reference number so that they can communicate a payment plan. This has been going on since April, countless times my CAB officer has attempted to contact them to no avail, they do not respond. However I do get message still from CRS/Lending Stream about the debt, the other day I got a text message from CRS stating they had not received the payment from the plan agreed with my debt authority, which is not true because nothing h

  8. The Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) usually advises well, but they do make some really silly errors, this is just one of them, almost like opening your mouth without thinking. In there advice on buying a used cars, they say: I don't think any motorist would class a worn out clutch as a minor fault. Draft it up and get it proofread before publication CAB.
  9. Hi All I have an unusual problem so i'm going to state all the facts: I called a cab to pick me up from home to take me to my local tube station as i was running late for work. The cab pulled up to a nearby set of traffic lights and was in a line of traffic waiting to turn right (it was a red light). There are two small lanes on the approach to the traffic lights, one to turn left and one for right. the left lane was empty. I asked the driver if I could get out there and cross the road to the station instead (I was in the rear passenger side seat). He said yes and i
  10. I have heard this morning that Citizens Advice and Citizens Advice Scotland are making a nationwide request for information surrounding the private parking industry. I am aware that some offices in Scotland have been very pro-active on this issue, however there appears to be a lack of consistency. It will be interesting to see how this pans out as I seem to recall they upset Retail Loss Prevention over similar issues not that very long ago.
  11. Seems CAB have no idea when it comes to parking on private land and offer incorrect advice in my opinion. Have a read here and see if you agree.

  17. A company that sues shoplifters on behalf of retailers has accused a Citizens Advice Bureau official of organising a campaign of harassment against it. The firm, Retail Loss Prevention (RLP), has also threatened legal action against several consumer websites because of comments on their forums. It wants to uncover the identity of internet critics who have called for the company's business to be disrupted. The CAB official denies the accusation. RLP has accused its critics of trying to damage its business in a "vindictive" campaign. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-1
  18. Hi all, I have been a member of the CAG for a while now and have in the past successfully sued Nationwide for my bank charges but it has been quite a while since I have been here. I also have a credit card with them and they have been nothing but vindictive ever since I recovered my bank charges. I have been studying for a degree which I have had to give up, partly due to ongoing financial problems and depression , all exacerbated by the ridiculous and, I would say criminal, behaviour of Nationwide. For the past 2 or so years I have been trying to pay the card off, but due to th

Even now the bank still tries to get me to borrow more, even though my rating is shot and I would have no chance even if I wanted to. I need support as my money problem is reaching crisis level (can't pay the rent). I have disputed several accounts where they do not have a legal agreement.... ....so I went to the CAB for advice. They want to take over dealing with the creditors, but insist on dealing with all of them, including
