  1. Hi, DWP recently wrote to me to say I owed them £600 and that they would be taking this from my wages via a DEA. I have worked full time for 9 years now so I was not even aware of how I could owe them this money. I called them and they said it was from a historic - 9 year old budgeting loan. I was annoyed because as far I was aware this was paid off years ago when I still received income support, however I agreed to set up a standing order for £20 each month. They said they would write to my employer to cancel the DEA. I kept to my side and sorted the standing orde
  2. My daughter and myself went to a carpet shop on Sunday to buy some new carpet for the stairs, not a great lot needed. Daughter gave the chap her stair measurements, and she chose her carpet that was on a large roll. She paid for this along with fitting costs and arranged the date for it to be fitted which was the following Wednesday (tomorrow) Today she received a call from the shop saying that they had run out of her chosen carpet , could she go down and pick another one , or wait ten days for some more to come in. WHAT ! This carpet was bought an
  3. Hi, thanks for taking the time to read my post, I will try to keep a long annoying complex matter as simple as possible. When we moved in to our flat approx. 6 year ago I called BG to set up account and they insisted they didn't supply our gas, I tried on more than one occasion and they still said they do not supply us. Last October we finally got a bill that said our meter reading was 000000. In January it was still 00000, suddenly by March it was pushing £1000! I know we were very lucky it took them so long to actually bill us however the meter is now working double time it would s
  4. Except that I have, and it's paid in full. A brief background. The Licencing people - is it still the home office ? - have been supplying a receipted licence for eight years to this property following a one off payment. This is the first year it has been done totally online to save paper and a stamp. I have bank statement proof that I paid on the day and that it has not been refunded at any time since. The issue which has led to a summons is, from what I can gather, a change to the house number as a result of a postal address change, that Royal Mail have confirmed was
  5. Hi all, Not sure if this is of interest but thought I'd share. My mother drove me to Driffield for a job interview which ended up taking nearly 2 hours. She'd parked in Lidl and did not see or read the small signs dotted around. For most of the 1 hr 55 mins she was sat in the car (after buying a few things in Lidl). Lo and behold the red-topped charge notice of doom came through her door a few days later. I submitted this appeal through their website (not a template, all my own work!): I, XXXXXXX, am making this appeal on behalf of, at the request of and with th
  6. usual story, MBNA debt sold to these clowns, who assumed that our agreement with MBNA to pay £24 a month meant that they would get the same, not a cat in hells chance, came into some money offered a F&F but they wanted an I&E (fat Chance), we offered £10 a month, they still insist that they cant accept any offer without an I&E, we set up a standing order anyway and have been paying that, They have now come back and Threatened to pass this on to a debt collector (arden) This is like a red rag to a bull raised an official complaint

  9. Hi, a newby here who has been studying the wealth of information on these forums. I fell behind a few months ago with my CTax and had a liability order issued back in March. The debt was brought up to date and since I have been able to pay and am up to date. Last week, the council got a second liability order for the demand of CTax for the rest of this year despite paying every month. Yesterday I got a demand from Rossendales for £1,069. I intend to take this up with the council in the morning by going to the offices in person. The letter Rossendales sent was if it was written by a 5 year
