  1. HI, I had been given a ticket on my car for parking at 4 CHURCH ROAD, ASHFORD - TW16 2UT When I got to the car park I had gone to buy a ticket, because I didn't have the right change I quickly went into a convenient store to get some, roughly in about a minute when I come back to pay for a pay and display ticket I see someone taking pictures of my car I approach him he said that I was being fined for not displaying a valid ticket. I explained that I was on my way to get one and that it had barely been a minute since I parked. (keep in mind this car park
  2. The European competition watchdog has fined Google €2.42 billion for abusing its dominance as a search engine. The European Commission was prompted to take action after numerous complaints were made by rival firms such as Yelp, TripAdvisor, UK comparison site Foundem, and News Corp. In a seven-year long investigation, Google was found to be systematically given prominent placement in searches to its own comparison shopping service and demoted those of rivals in search result. https://uk.yahoo.com/finance/news/google-fined-record-e2-4bn-manipulating-shopping-search-results-100633

  4. Plusnet, a BT owned company, has today been fined £880,000 by Ofcom for continuing to bill more than a thousand ex-customers. http://tinyurl.com/lgdmhyl
  5. I set up DD with DVLA 2015. DVLA confirmed DD was set up and supplied a letter saying so. Thinking my car was taxed, and having comfort DVLA would take payments as needed, DVLA has not requested/taken payment. Car was not, therefore, taxed. I discovered this with a lovely man put a wheel clamp on my car, with £260 release fee (£160 later refunded once taxed) but then 2 weeks later, letter from DVLA with fine of £216. Replied to DVLA fine letter saying it's their fault. The DD letter from DVLA in 2015 says exactly 'you do not have to do anything'. I am fuming.
  6. Well Theres No Surprise....
  7. recently received two 90£' fines' from minister baywatch for parking in a hospital carpark where i was doing placement as a student. They are for 2 days in a row, i only remember getting a ticket for one day This carpark has different sections some you can park there all day, some are limited to 4 hours, but you dont have to pay to stay there at all. I didn't know there was a difference. I was informed by many people in the hospital that they were a cowboy operation and that no one pays their 'fines'. When given the tickets the carpark wasnt full and they
  8. Complaints from people bombarded with spam texts and nuisance calls have today helped the ICO fine two companies a total of £100,000. Separate investigations into Omega Marketing Services Ltd and Vincent Bond Ltd were both triggered by complaints about nuisance marketing. Now the firms have been fined £60,000 and £40,000 respectively. The ICO receives around 13,000 complaints about spam texts, emails and nuisance calls a month. It is currently investigating 167 cases. Report nuisance calls at ico.org.uk/calls.
  9. ScottishPower has been fined £18 million by regulator Ofgem for customer service failings. The energy firm "failed to treat its customers fairly" when handling calls, dealing with complaints and billing, the watchdog said. Dermot Nolan, Ofgem chief executive, said: "Scottish Power let its customers down during the implementation of a new IT system. When things went wrong, it didn't act quickly enough to fix them. "This created frustration and worry for many customers, who also wasted a lot of time trying to contact the supplier by phone." ScottishPower was bl
  10. The largest-ever fine for cold-calling has been handed down by the Information Commissioner's Office. Brighton-based company Prodial was fined £350,000 for generating more than 46 million spam calls. More than 1,000 people complained to the ICO about the automated message calls they had received from the company, which related to PPI claims. Information Commissioner Christopher Graham said: "This is one of the worst cases of cold calling we have ever come across. "The volume of calls made in just a few months was staggering. "This was a company t
  11. Hi My son was walking through sainsburys car park smoking a roll up and absently mindedly dropped it on the floor (he knows he's a very naughty boy etc) then from no where pops up a woman in uniform armed with a camera telling him he'd been filmed littering which is an offence and he is to be fined £60 to be paid within 11 days or it goes up to £80 or court Whilst I agree littering is bad. ..nothing worse then takeaway wrappers blowing all over the place or having to tip toe through dog dirt in the park but I've never had in issue with cigarette butts.. ..but ye
  12. Please help!!!! This is a long story so please bear with me. My sister hired a car last year to move home. She was on the hire agreement with my Dad as a free driver also. My Dad was caught by a speed camera while moving her stuff to her new house in the hire car. My sister put her current address on the hire agreement The address she was moving from NOT to as she stayed there until two days afterwards. She did not pay for mail forwarding but asked landlord to forward any mail. A NIP was sent a few days afterwards to old address as this was provided by Enter
  13. Energy giant E.On is to pay a record £12m penalty, following an investigation into mis-selling by the industry regulator. Ofgem said it was the largest penalty paid to date by a UK energy supplier. Its investigation found "extensive poor sales practices" amongst staff selling on the doorstep and by phone. E.On has apologised to its customers, and has promised to pay compensation to anyone who was mis-sold an energy package. The company has estimated that the bill for compensation payments is likely to be between £3m and £8m, on top of the £
  14. Surprise surprise http://www.bbc.com/news/business-35129788 But will it make any difference? No sign of it so far. I wonder what Kenneth Radley Davies Smadley Bradley Madley Mavies - their alleged in-house legal assistant and Npower's tame solicitors Wilkins Chapman will make of this. I wonder how many of Npower's victims have they frightened and bullied over the year simply in order to keep Npower's shameful dishonesty and incompetence from being revealed to the public. Of course, £26million is a drop in the ocean and no doubt their execs are all enjoying their bonus
  15. A claims firm that bombarded consumers with more than 1.3 million spam messages has been fined £80,000 as part of a wider crackdown against companies behind nuisance calls and texts. UKMS Money Solutions (UKMS) used lists of mobile phone numbers it had bought from data brokers to contact people encouraging them to make claims for payment protection insurance (PPI), the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said. It said the fine issued to the firm was the first of three penalties totalling £250,000 it will issue this week to companies behind nuisance texts and calls, bringi
  16. My father passed away in May of this year and left his car behind. The insurance ran out in the same month. Having very little knowledge about cars as I've never owned one and am still quite young I phoned up the DVLA who instructed me to send them a letter explaining the situation, that the car was being kept in private property, wasn't being driven, and that I would inform them once a decision had been made with what to do with the car. I did this, and a week ago received a letter from the DVLA containing a fine for £100 telling me that if I do not pay it s
  17. She appealed to Smart with the same mitigating circumstance and they told her to pay. A complaint to the principle who hired the [problem] gets the charge cancelled.... http://www.itv.com/news/meridian/2015-09-23/mother-fined-70-because-she-stayed-in-asda-car-park-after-doing-her-shopping-to-breastfeed-baby-daughter/?ref=yfp
  18. A firm selling call blocking devices has itself been fined for making unsolicited calls to those who have opted out of receiving them. Cold Call Eliminations, based in Chichester, made calls to the elderly, including cancer sufferers. One was said to have been left "badly shaken". They were registered on the Telephone Preference Service (TPS), so should have been exempt from such calls. The company, which has been fined £75,000, refused to comment. BBC Oops
  19. A claims company has become the first to be fined under new powers after making millions of "nuisance calls", the government has announced. The Hearing Clinic, based in Derby, has been fined £220,000 following hundreds of complaints about speculative calls regarding hearing loss claims. It was the first fine issued by the Claims Management Regulator. Many of those called by the business had subscribed to the Telephone Preference Service (TPS), indicating that they did not want to receive unsolicited calls. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-33788527
  20. I paid for parking via mobile and received a penalty notice for non payment. The appeal went to POPLA, and APCOA then agreed in their statement that they had received payment but not my vehicle reg. I stated that I entered my vehicle reg with my payment details. APCOA claimed that they sent me a separate text message asking for vehicle reg. They did not. I did however receive a voice mail from them saying that payment process was complete and I was entitled to park for 24 hours, so I assumed that everything was in order. (APCOA haven't denied this mess
  21. Taken from the BBC http://www.bbc.com/news/business-28015456 Payday lender Wonga must pay £2.6m in compensation after sending letters from non-existent law firms to customers in arrears.
  22. For those who have had bad treatment from Harrington Brooks then this may offer some comfort. http://www.fca.org.uk/news/firms/debt-management-firm-harrington-brooks-redress
  23. I like the decision to give the fine to the CAB. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-32157906 HB
