  5. The press are reporting a crackdown on nuisance calls with ever larger fines for the transgressors, such as PPI, onlime marketing etc. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2967040/Will-FINALLY-end-nightmare-nuisance-calls-New-law-make-easier-hit-firms-500-000-fines.html https://www.politicshome.com/home-affairs/articles/story/crackdown-nuisance-calls http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/news/article-2865158/Britain-s-one-billion-nuisance-calls-face-crackdown-task-force-warns.html As DCAs engage in constant calls and texts even after being told in writing only, by letter I wonder if they can be snared in this trap, Arrow, Lowell, Muckhall Snotcall are you worried?

  6. Thousands of payday loan middlemen face tough new rules after the City watchdog highlighted "blatantly unfair" treatment of customers. Borrowers have complained about credit brokers taking fees without permission for "half-hearted promises" of payday loans. Some have complained that they thought the brokers were, in fact, lenders. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said clear contracts must be made explaining fees that could be levied. New rules, that come into force on 2 January, mean that credit brokers must give clear information to customers about who they are, what fee is payable, and how payment can be made. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-30274718 New rules will protect consumers from harmful fee-charging credit broking practices New rules have been introduced by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) today to tackle poor practice in the credit broking market which is causing serious detriment to consumers. The rules will ban credit brokers from charging fees to customers, and from requesting customers’ payment details for that purpose, unless they comply with new requirements ensuring that customers are given clear information about who they are dealing with, what fee will be payable, and when and how the fee will be payable. The rules come into force on 2 January 2015. http://www.fca.org.uk/news/new-rules-will-protect-consumers-from-harmful-fee-charging-credit-broking-practices
  7. My daughter goes to a mixed school. The school has decided to have a crackdown on the girls uniform, obviously the boys all wear their uniform perfectly. Yesterday the school sent a man (presumably a male teacher, my daughter did not know him) into the class to check the girls uniforms. He came into the class, told all the girls to stand up, and then checked whether the girls skirts were too short, or trousers too tight. My daughter was really upset, she felt like she had been picked on for being female, all the boys were looking at her to see whether they could see anything, and she is furious that the mere fact that she is female was a reason for making her be checked (her uniform has never been an issue). To make it worse, the school took all the girls that had "failed" to be taught out of normal lessons for the day, and girls as young as 11 were told that their clothing was provocative. Any suggestions where I go from here?
  8. Royal Mail and Trading Standards have joined forces today to crack down on [problem] mail in the postal system across the UK. Under the initiative, Trading Standards will decide whether mail is a [problem] and alert Royal Mail, before writing to the company requesting they stop posting the items. Alongside this, Royal Mail will warn the company about its actions before cancelling its contract if it continues to post s c a m mail. Here's how you can now help stop s c a m mail – just cross out your details on the envelope, re-address it with FREEPOST – S C A M MAIL and pop it back in a post box. http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/news/crackdown-on-[problem]-mail-delivered-to-residents-homes-sept14
