  2. I recently purchased a smart/fitness watch (Garmin). When purchasing I was lured in by the suggestion that the watch would feature connectivity to Deezer (Music app) so that I could download my playlists and go out running without having to take my phone with me. This was marked on the website as 'coming soon'. Since buying the watch and asking the customer care team when this feature will be added they are unable/unwilling to give a time frame. Is there an actual definition of 'coming soon'? I am tempted to take the watch back but as it is outside of the 28days and there is no
  3. Hi all, First post here, when I was a student I did a semester abroad on the Erasmus scheme. I was in Denmark. While in Denmark I had a flat and took out an internet service. I was there for 3 months but had a 12 month contract, this was in 2014 Sept-Dec . I took out the service with Telenor. The service was around £25 a month. When I left Denmark I forgot to cancel the contract , looking back I can find one email from Telenor from March 2015 (assuming pointing out late payment). I then have an email from Intrum Justitia asking for 2.757,67kr (about £330) th
  4. Hi Guys, A few of you will remember from a few months back when I posted a thread on advice about appealing against my ESA decision. A few months have passed & I got the dreaded tribunal letter today:sad: They said they have not revised my decision & I am fit for work. The stress of this whole thing is so bloody unexplainable. I'm still trying to get my head around how they think someone that suffers from severe depression, anxiety, doesn't go out the house much etc can actually be deemed well enough to work! I've been struggling with my illness over the last few mon
  5. In simple terms i'm self employed and have been here since october 2010, up till October 2016 the tenancy was not in my name and was paid monthly but they moved out so at this point the landlord agreed for me to pay 6 months in advance because I was unable to prove enough earnings due to being self employed. I have renewed twice paying the 6 months in advance again so 18 months total but this time they want to put the rent up £300 a year and are asking me to pay £60 in advance to reserve. I'll be honest its doable but its a real struggle this time finding over £4k. Logically it should be
  6. Hi Brief history - blind company insisted on fitting blinds I had told them I could no longer afford and that we would arrange payment in due course. I struggled at the rate they wanted £50 a week (total debt £950). I couldn't keep up, they started small claims but didn't continue with it - would have been easier if they did as I could have given a lower amount. The business owner then called round to my house for the money. it was the night before I had a c - section (which I was having earlier due to a heart condition) . They continue to email me whil
  7. I was in a rush for a charity event, which the irony of the whole situation. I didn't have the change for the second set of chocolates (£2) I just walked out with them. I was taken into a small room and after being given a talk on not doing it again I wasn't banned or given anything to sign, as I was told it wasn't worth the hassle given the extent of the items, and was just given a verbal warning. However on a paper they wanted my address, will I be getting any fines in the mail, or third party fines? If so would I have to pay it?
  8. Hi, I'm in the Support group for ESA, was on Contribution based Incapacity Benefit from 2003, transferred to ESA without a medical in 2013. Was also on DLA high rate Care and Mobility from 2003, transferred to PIP in 2016 (downgraded to Standard Rate by an one of the 'trusty' so-called HP's !). My query is this, I have been thinking about coming off ESA as I've been offered part-time work (16 hrs a week) at a sitting down job (I have mobility problems) and can claim Working tax credit. Question 1) I would obviously write to DWP to say I want to come off ESA, but do I have to give
  9. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/vince-cable-brexit-crisis-worse-than-2008-crash-warns-referendum-liberal-democrat-a7709056.html I have noticed in recent days that companies are announcing reduced profits e.g HSBC, Sainsburys and i remembered Vince Cables recent warning. Is the UK heading towards a new economic storm that might be worse than the 07/08 financial crash ? UK Banks have never really recovered and with Brexit likely to cause Banks to lose business to the EU finance centres, how will this affect the UK economy. Many of these Banks transferring work to Brusse
  10. Hi Hope someone can advise if they have done this before. I am nearly 3 years into paying a 4 year hire purchase with first response I have been told as I have paid 50% off I can hand his car back via VT. If I was to trade my car in for a new car I would be £1500 in negative equality. I have been accepted by car finance for a much better deal but said I would be better to refinance than VT, of course they are gonna say that as they are a car finance company but told me if I do this I would struggle to get car finance. I have already b
  11. Hello CAG Please give me some help and advice. My interest only mortgage will end next month . I have asked for a five year extension. I have been discussing this with my mortgage provider and it does not look good. I am pretty nervous and anxious. I am not quite sure how to go about negotiating with them. As its interest only they want the entire loan back. Due to illnesses over the last 10 years my plans to save to repay the mortgage at the end of term went out of the window. then went into arrears and it was touch and go for a year. I was able
  12. Hi All, im looking for advice. On Monday 13th March a bailiff came to my door saying he had a warrant to enter and search my home with the intention of removing goods. I asked him why and was told that my son had an outstanding court fine for running a red light last summer some time and that it had not been paid so he was here to collect the debt in full or recover goods to the value of. He said he had a locksmith, removals van and the police on route but if I let him in peacefully and paid the outstanding amount he could cancel the police and locksmiths presence
  13. There is much talk of the recent arrivals of children coming to the UK and they look more like adults. What checks are made to confirm a person's age ? and what other details are known ? (Source LBC radio.)..
  14. There is a tree on the side of a path runs past my house that is overgrown to the point it is coming into contact with the side of my house, the roof and is also hitting the windows of my property. I have contacted the council about this previously in 2011 when it was dealt with by way of a crown reduction, however 4 years later and its bigger than so i again reported it last summer and was advised that it would be cut back in 6/8 weeks. However 16 months have passed since my local borough council made that promise and despite several calls and emails nothing has been done about it
  15. My earlier thread: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?376743-UK-employer-overpaid-now-in-US - quick summary: employer overpaid in UK, tried to set up an agreement after dispute over amount owed, debt sold to UK debt collector before negotiations complete, wrote to debt collector declining to deal with them, heard no more. Three years later and we have a new letter from a US debt collector for this money owed (note: I agree we might owe something but I'm not at all convinced of the amount, and it seems neither are they given the wildly varying figures they came up wi
  16. Hi everybody! I have a question to someone who lives somewhere in Clacton-on-sea or Kent, or in some picturesque place not too far from London. Can you please advise some place to spend New Year days? I mean some caravan park or smth like that for a couple with a cat. May be someone has other suggestions?
  17. hi, I have recently started the dreaded work programme, however I have been offered a P/T job, 20 hours a week, which I found myself.. now I don't want my work programme provider to know anything about this, I want to just sign off and forget all bout the JSA and the work programme, however I will still need housing and council tax benefit, can the work programme provider stop me getting this if I just ignore them and not keep in touch with them? thanks
  18. Good afternoon, hopefully this will be a 'quick' one. I've had an e-mail from my landline provider (BT) about the changes coming into effect on 1st July about charges to 08.. numbers etc. I use an 0844 number to make international calls on a regular basis. This is currently charged at 1p per minute. (is that what is called an 'override service'?). From what I understand from the e-mail, if I use this service after 1st July, I will be charged by BT a minimum of 9.58p per minute, despite the 'provider' (I think it's justcall) advertising it as 1p per minute. I'm con
  19. A US firm is to extend its free mobile data, voice and text offering to the UK from July this year. FreedomPop will offer Sim cards that offer 200MB of data, 200 texts and 200 minutes of voice calls per month using the cellular network at no cost. The company already offers a similar free mobile data plan in the US to more than half a million users. The firm, which is backed by Skype founder Niklas Zennstom, says it will make money by selling extra services. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-32704051 US mobile phone provider FreedomPop is launching its Sim-only ser

  21. i really need some advice. Firstly i do not have an account with brighthouse it is my husband who had a p.c from them. He has obviously missed payments as within the last year a representative from brighthouse has been to our house 3 times with the latest visit being yesterday. I dont answer the door so a note is put through so i know it is them. I get frightened when they turn up as my husband is out a lot so never here when they come and we have a 3 year old boy and i dont want him exposed to strange men cominr to our door . I ge
  22. Just had a visit from a bailiff from marstons to my mums address who proceeded to explain everything to a 17 yearold who answered the door!! All this on her camera apparently. She told him that she was entiltled to come in and remove goods from my room for a court fine I had failed to pay which I did try to sett up a payment plan but they refused. I have been on benefits as was unable to work. This is a high court distress warrant and she says she is coming back on friday or saturday to remove the goods. I called her to see if I could set up a payment plan she saidf no she also said th
  23. Hi Just looking for a bit of advice. My husband has been on DLA for just over 2 years and in May he was asked to apply for PIP. I filled out the forms for him and sent all evidence from each consultant he sees. We received a letter in June to say all had been received and his assessment would be in 12-16 weeks. I called just before the 16 weeks and was told it would now be 26 weeks but ATOS would be coming to us. His last ATOS assessment for ESA I had to take him and we actually found the lady very nice and she included me quite a bit in the assessment. He was placed in the SG
  24. In November 2013 I took my 53 plate Renault Laguna 2.0 Privilege (petrol) in for service and MOT at my local Kwik Fit (KF) branch. I left with a bill of just shy of £1400 which included the fitting of a new catalytic converter and associated sensor and box totaling £451.80 inc VAT. I had cause to return the vehicle to them approximately a month later as engine noise had increased and my petrol consumption had gone up - I was now getting 25 MPG instead of the 31 MPG I was getting beforehand. The fitting of the exhaust was checked and I was assured that everything was in order – no expla
  25. Hello, I am wondering if anyone can help me, we are in a big bit of bother with Marstons Bailiffs. A very rude and arrogant officer came to our door yesterday looking for my brother for a parking fine last year in London which we knew nothing about saying that unless he pays the £512 before 6pm today then he compounding the car which is a motorbility car. I explained that even when he is home he will not be able to speak to him as he is severely disabled. He has a tracheotomy tube in his throat and cannot speak! He did not seem bothered and replied '
