About Me


  1. Hi There, I was wondering if anyone can help me with a situation that involves myself and my x partner. I will try explain this as best as I can. I had been with my partner nearly 5 years when are relationship had broken down. We have two children together aged 2, 5 and did live in rented accommodation. When we separated it was mutual and was not messy, part of the separation was my job I work away and long hours. We separated two years ago and she like any single mother claimed benefits for herself. As a good father I would visit my children as often as I could, I wo
  2. When I was caught using my mom's freedom pass, 'the caution' was read to me AFTER I answered all the questions and was asked to sign the notes. I was NOT asked to review the notes just to sign. Is it how it is supposed to be done? After the questions and my signature the caution followed and I just felt sick. The officer offered free legal advice but I refused because I was mentally and physically unable to continue. Can I still request free legal advice should I go to court? I think I wasnÂ’t informed that I DID NOT have to answer the questions WITHOUT
  3. I am posting on behalf of a neighbour, not sure if anyone can help here as its beyond me. Husband and wife window company, based at home. They were both working in the business until 3 years ago. Sadly their youngest child was born very ill and she was doing less and less and less work. They claimed carers allowance and took on a part time bookkeeper. The wife hours were reduced and the wages dropped to reflect this. Last year, the accountant upped her wages to be above the threshold and for 10 months they have been claiming illegally. They were not aware of this as t
  4. Purchased a sofa from @sofology. They were very clear in the shop, once you get the delivery text you must have arranged for delivery to take place within 7 days Text came Thursday 9th June with "Great news your sofa is now ready for delivery..." so due to work commitments and based on the statements made in the shop I arranged to have the old one removed, assuming worst case we would have 1 week without sofa. Went to arrange delivery to be told sofa would not be in their warehouse until 11th July with delivery after that. Called the call centre to be told yes that's correct, yo

  6. Hi there, Please help me. I'm terrified right now. I received a letter out of nowhere yesterday saying that I was being investigated and interviewed under caution for alleged undeclared work. It is in 2 weeks time. No other information than that. Just that it would be under caution. I feel like a criminal when I read that. Of course I rang up to say that I would be attending - the man on the phone was horrible and cold and downright rude - refused to give me any more information. I am signed off work long term sick due to mental health problems and currently on ESA (have
  7. Hi all I'm new here and desperately seeking some advice. I've phone 3 local solicitors and not 1 has got back to me. Anyway, I have received a letter from the jobcentre asking me to attend an interview under caution about my claim for income support and that they want to talk to me about a partner I live with. Now I only claim income support as I live in my own home which is a joint mortgage with my ex partner. Now, I'm thinking this could be 1 of 2 things. Firstly I have a boyfriend who comes over and stays every now and then. He had his own place until November last year as he couldn'

  9.

  10. Hello everyone. About 4.5 years ago I was caught stealing some clothing from a high street store (tough period of my life, which I am luckily out of now. It was done to sell on to try and pay some bailiffs) The police were called, I was arrested and given a caution. I didn't have to pay an £80 fine. I'm going to apply for a job now and as far as I know they perform fairly stringent checks on their employees. This role won't be handling cash, or being around vulnerable adults/children. I think they will do an enhanced DBS check at the least. Will this be flagged up in the check?
  11. Hi Guys, Please help I am so stressed and anxious and making myself sick. I have been on Incapacity Benefit since 1997, i was medically retired from the NHS. I cant remember exactly when i converted to ESA but was placed in ESA support group then when the 365 days were up (maybe a couple of years ago) they re assessed me to see if i was legible to continue, the outcome i believe was as i was in support group i would continue getting CR ESA. that carried on then in march i recieved a letter stating as i get £74.36 a week occupational pension x 2 I have one for £13.23 and one for
  12. I have been asked to come to an interview under caution. I was told it was to do with allegations of working whilst claiming universal credit. What was odd was that I received the letter at the beginning of April, yet it was dated mid February. In the letter, it said that if I did not reply within 7 days of the date as posted, then they will assume that I am not attending and it will result in further action. When I called the DWP officer, he said it was just a mistake - but it seems a bit odd that a DWP fraud officer would get the dates so wrong. Also, he told me just
  13. Hi, I do not know where else to ask this question - if this is in the wrong place then please do let me know where to post this. In January of this year - I was shopping out with friends, and used the self service checkouts, as I only had a few items. I had picked up several items, including one where the label has peeled off, and had stuck to the bottom of the smaller item below it. I scanned through all of the items, and was surprised that the bill came to less than what I was expecting: I ignored it, and thought I was quids in, and could't do maths.
  14. Hi everyone, apologies if this has been asked before - i did search i wonder if someone could offer some advice please? Totally out of character I shoplifted some items from a shop and was ultimately caught. I know it was incredibly stupid, I've never done anything like that before. The police were called and they questioned me in the security office. Im in my 30s and I have never been in trouble with the police before. They cautioned me and escorted me off the premises. [Edit: the police actually took my home as they said they needed to confirm who
  15. Hi Guys i attended an interview under caution as they felt my partner was living with me, according to what i have read on other peoples threads the interview went as standard. So this is going back to 2012 when my partner left his wife and used my address as a postal address until he got himself sorted so 9 weeks ago i was called in and i've since had over payment letters for 3 months benefits to be paid back from aug - nov 2012 we was not living together and up until recently we never was, yes he used to stay a few times a week and also stay at his mothers house they have got some video
  16. These are good and use 25% power for equivalent filament lamp BUT They don't like being switched on/off frequently and will quickly fail. Be wary of using them on automatic night light switches. These use a light sensor to detect the onset of darkness and switch the lamp on. Unfortunately some of them can tend to flutter around the switch over point and this is very bad for a CFL. Indeed there have been cases where a householder left one of these on while she went on holiday and came home to find her house burnt down. Fire caused by an overheated CFL using one of the threshold swit
  17. I really need some help. My partner is in trouble with the DWP and has been called in for an interview under caution. There was a dodgy message left on his phone regarding work, on the same week he received a letter stating that he was being investigated. My partner is self-employed, but has previously been on benefits for a lengthy period. Does anyone know if the DWP have a history of phoning people using a box phone number to dupe people (i.e. it gives out calls but can't receive outside office hours so therefore can't take messages)? I'd really appreciate some help with this
  18. Ok, this is going to be long, but I really need some help! I was in receipt of ESA & HB for myself and partner, from 2007-2014. Due to Kidney failure, Dialysis and two kidney transplants. My DH started work in Jan 14, I told the tax office straight away, they swapped all my benefits over to the correct ones, no problems. My Husband then quit his job, due to being offered a better job, this was in march. We didnt know his new start date so i switched al the benefits back over, all sorted. He started his new job in may- The day he started I won a tribunal from 2012, giving me al
  19. If you had administrative action taken against you as a result of a police caution it may be that you have grounds for a complaint. If you have now left the armed forces and had administrative action taken against you as a result of a police caution between December 2008 and September 2011, it may be that you have grounds for a complaint. The MOD has written to serving and former serving personnel because of changes to the law which took effect in December 2008 that meant such cautions should not have been taken into account after that date. However, whilst action has been taken to c
  20. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could help me with what happens next. I have been stopped in a ZONE 1 station using a ZONE 2/3 travel card, so obviously my ticket was invalid. I was interviewed under caution and because I was quite shocked and didn't want to put my foot in anything, I refused to answer questions under caution, when questions where asked I answered "no comment" I was also asked to sign his notebook, without him telling me what it was for, i refused to sign until he explained what i was signing, I then read through his notes and signed. What is the most
  21. Recently on this forum there have been one or two posts regarding renting from relatives. I was on Scoop and saw this story and thought I would share it to you all for more detail see here http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/12945046.Benefit_cheat_ordered_to_pay_back___42k____after_she_was_caught_claiming_for_her_mum_s_house/ Story from here: http://www.scoop.it/t/lacef-news

  23. Hi everyone, I just join to this forum, and I need a little bit of help on my doubts regarding a council caution. My caution doesn't involve dishonesty of my part. Is this type of cautions the same as police cautions they are recorded on PNC or they are criminal recorded anywhere? it will remain forever in my files? I'm really worried about this, how could this reflect in my future? i.e work. thank you in advance.
  24. Hi All, In short I have been caught using a Freedom Pass ticket of my father. I have a auto top up Oyster card which I kept in the same place as my dad's Freedom pass. The holders of the two cards were the same on the outside and at a certain point in time i must have picked up the freedom pass without realising and went on normally using that in my everyday life. (I never actually open the holder to check cards as mine is auto top up). My dad travels abroad as he has a house in Europe and doesn't regularly use the card therefore was not aware. This was completely m
  25. Hi everyone, In June 2011 I was caught travelling on an incorrect ticket and was interviewed under caution by a FCC revenue Protection Officer. He didn't take my signatures on the statement or his notes although I clearly remember him stating the caution and then proceeding with the interview. Thnaks to this forum, I got some good guidance on how to handle such a case and managed to pay a charge to FCC prosecution department and persuaded not to proceed further with the case (a substantially high amount imho but I was travelling without a valid ticket so was clearly in the wrong).
