  1. In the great days of the British Empire, a new commanding officer was sent to a jungle outpost to relieve the retiring colonel. After welcoming his replacement and showing the usual courtesies (gin and tonic, cucumber sandwiches etc) that protocol decrees, the retiring colonel said, "You must meet my Adjutant, Captain Smithers, he’s my right-hand man, he's really the strength of this office. His talent is simply boundless." Smithers was summoned and introduced to the new CO, who was surprised to meet a humpbacked, one eyed, toothless, hairless, scabbed and pockmarked specimen of humanity,
  2. I need help in a possibly issue I have with Empire Magazine. Just over 3 months ago, I was called up out of the blue by Bauer Consumer group. They offered me a bunch of subscriptions for magazines, based on some advertising I'd apparently agreed to. I only ever agree to advertising if it's with a company I trust, and never allow 3rd party. When the lady on the phone began to list off the magazines, I recognised who they were. It was from a website where I'd entered a bunch of competitions, and even won a couple. I was offered 3 months of Empire Magazine for just £1.
  3. Leading economist Ros Altmann argued in this space yesterday that equity release providers charge too much to unlock wealth in bricks and mortar for older homeowners who are short of cash – but lenders claim her analysis is unfair. For example, while some equity release schemes – also known as home income plans – charge more than 7pc per annum, or double conventional mortgage costs, it is now possible for homeowners aged over 75 to borrow at 5pc without having to pay any interest before they die or leave the property. However, even at that lower rate of interest a debt will double in size in l
  4. Hi, Does Empire Stores come under the umbrella for Redcats or Shop Direct? Would be grateful for any advice, thanks
  5. Hello all, I am after a bit of advice. I have been having an on off discussion with Robinson Way from approx. Feb 2012. They started by telephoning me about an old catalogue debt from 2002. It was from my previous address, which I did reside in at the time. I kept telling the RW staff that I could not remember ever having an Empire Stores catalogue. They kept telling me that I owe £213.30. This went on for a few weeks, pretty much a telephone call every day. Eventually I realised that the name they were using was my current surname, and that from 19
  6. Hi, I purchased a cooker from my mums catalogue around 9 years ago. About 6mths after my husband had a mental episode and was hospitalised and i had to give up work to look after him and our children. As i couldn't afford the repayment each month to my mum the account was passed to me. The debts started mounting up so we seen a debt specialist at the CAB office who sorted out all the debts and offered them all £1.00 each (apparenlty we had to offer all debt companies the same amount). Empire catalogue accepted the £1.00(shop diect) payment and everything was fine.
  7. Hi, I recently sent the PPI Questionnaire to Recats about an Empire Stores account I held up to 2005/6. First of all they sent a reply stating that I had the wrong account number after which I sent them a copy of an old statement. Their following response was that since my account had been dormant they have no records and cannot varify my account. If I send them a SAR together with the £10 fee are they obliged to send me information about my account? Would this then give me the right to pursue my claim or should I just send this to the Ombudsman? I have sent other claims to the ombud
  8. Hi, Everyone, I have a Panasonic TH-42PX600B Plasma TV which has developed a nice blue line right down the middle of the screen. No problem I have a 5 year extended warranty. I Start to do some digging around on the net for phone numbers and find out the supplier Empire Commercial has gone bust! Oh dear! The TV was part of an Direct Line insurance claim. So I don't have a receipt only a few emails to state the delivery date and the additional money I payed for the upgraded TV. Direct Line forced me to go through their preferred supplier Empire Commercial can I go back
