  1. Took a fixture out of it's packet and didn't pay for it when I bought other items of shopping at a national DIY chain. Was stopped at the exit by 2 staff. One wearing shop attire,the other plainclothes. I was asked and immediately admitted the theft. The uniformed staff asked me to come into the store. He took me to pay for the item with the packet I had discarded. I paid at the card self service point. He then asked me for photo ID but I only had my bank card. He accepted this after the other plainclothes staff indicated it was OK. He seemed to take a photo of
  2. Hi Everyone, In November I have bought a car for my wife, but she said she wants something smaller to drive, so I decided to sell it. I was a legal owner of the car, V5 was on mine name and address. I'm not a car dealer, it was a private sale. This is a copy of my ad on AutoTrader: "Features & Description: 85k Miles with Full Ford Main Dealer Service History, Long MOT, Low Insurance, Cheap to drive, HPI Clear, 2 Keys, Excellent Overall Condition, Clean Inside and Out, Some Little Age Related Scratches but Nothing Serious, No timewasters, tyre kickers or bu
  3. Virgin Media Internet access is down for the whole area I live in, spoke to them a few hours on the phone, they said they are 'aware of the problem' and it should be fixed soon, this was over 5 hours ago! I'm at my sisters using her internet to post this on here, what can be done for Virgin Media to get off their backsides and fix it?
  4. Hi, Im not sure what it is im looking for in asking the question whether Newlyn are fixing prices. They say i owe £324.54, giving their breakdown that i asked them for the said as follows; TOTAL BALANCE INCLUDING FEES £835.04 TOTAL PAID £510.50 BALANCE OUTSTANDING £324.54 i asked for the breakdown of the balance and they said VISIT ONE £24.50 VISIT TWO £18.00 LEVY FEE £42.16 (they say they levied the car outside my house, but they gave me the wrong details it was not my car ) ATTENDANCE/VAN £136.00 Their fees come to £220.66 Leaving £103.88 I asked the council for the t
  5. Evening all, I'm trying clear up my credit file. Is there a blog here anywhere someone can give me a link to which explains step by step on dealing with credit card and loan companies. I currently have on credit file: Vanquis credit card, owing £435 in default. Second I've had with them, the last being cleared after default. No PPI, so what charges can I claim back? Them can i get them to remove the default if I'm on a payment plan should there be any balance left. How do i go about getting any charges back? Last payment Jan 13 Lowell £247 in default for around 3 months.
  6. BT have provided us internet for the last 5 years. It is a slow connection (0.5->1.0Mb/s) because we live 5 miles from the exchange. These speeds we have always accepted as we live in a rural area. In the last few months the internet keeps dropping out and slowing to 50Kb/s. At this speed the internet becomes all but unuseable. BT can fix this temporarly by "resetting profile" at exchange but problem always takes several days to resolve then comes back again in 2-3 days. Now they are saying line has degraded and they will not repair the line and offer to terminate my service. This woul
  7. I went to the Curry's store in Coventry last Friday to buy the Samsung UE40F800 LED TV. Priced at £1349, I noticed Curry's do a price match, so I scoured the Internet and found a company in Birmingham doing the exact model @ £1027.00. I asked the store manager to look at the deal and honour the price match deal, but to no avail. It would seem that Curry's have a price fix on their TV's where they offer a FREE 5 year warranty which is NOT free. In fact, this is inclusive. All TV's come with a manufacturers warranty, and under the consumer act they should be fit for the purpose, even after the
  8. US regulators have reportedly been handed evidence that traders at some of the world’s biggest banks manipulated a key rate for derivatives, pocketing millions at the expense of pension funds in the process. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is probing 15 banks over allegations that they instructed brokers to carry out trades that would move ISDAfix, the leading benchmark rate for interest rate swaps. Pension funds and companies who invest in interest rate derivatives often deal with banks to insure against big movements in the ISDAfix rate or to speculate on changes to inte
  9. The Financial Services Authority, is investigating claims by a whistleblower that Britain's £300bn wholesale gas market has been "regularly" manipulated by some of the big power companies, exploiting weaknesses that echo the recent Libor scandal. Separately, the energy regulator Ofgem has been warned by a company responsible for setting so-called benchmark prices, ICIS Heren, that it had seen evidence of suspect trading on 28 September, a key date as it marks the end of the gas financial year and can have an important influence on future prices. http://www.guardian.co.uk/bus

  11. Police take documents from Barclays in Milan, as they investigate possible rate-fixing of the euro version of Libor. Italian police have taken documents from a Barclays office in Milan as part of a probe into possible Euribor rate manipulation, according to Reuters. It said the raid occurred as regulators investigated fixing fears of the eurozone equivalent of the scandal-hit, London-based Libor inter-bank lending rate. The search was ordered by prosecutors in the southern city of Trani, who have opened a criminal probe into the possible manipulation of the Euribor rate. The move c
  12. A warning that Libor needed to be better regulated was given to the Government by the City watchdog nearly two years ago – but its advice was ignored and excluded from the Coalition’s flagship financial services legislation. Disclosure that the Financial Services Authority told the Treasury of failings in Libor and the urgent need to have it monitored by the watchdog itself or by the Bank of England comes as the Government has just ordered a fresh investigation into Libor by the FSA. Insiders say this will almost certainly retread the ground of the earlier report. The fact that the
  13. The Royal Bank of Scotland has sacked four traders over their alleged involvement in the Libor-fixing scandal, it has emerged. BBC business editor Robert Peston says the dismissals happened at the end of last year. RBS is one of a number of banks being investigated for possible rigging of the key bank lending rate. The news comes days after Barclays became the first bank to be fined for false reporting of it. Barclays was fined £290m ($450m) after the Financial Services Authority (FSA) found its traders had lied about the interest rate other banks were charging it for loans. Giving a lower r
