About Me


  1. I am so stressed at the moment because Barclays have pulled a real good'un from their bag if crap. An old customer accidentally sent us £6000 by bank transfer on Wednesday morning, rang us up to explain and asked if we could get it back to him. Stupid us rang Barclays and told them what had happened and to return it back to the account it came from because it wasn't our money. After an hour on the phone, a reversal was done on the payment. Next morning, another £6000 gets removed out of the account. No warning, nothing. Several long calls to call centres abroad (around 4hrs

  3. Hi everyone, I hope someone can help with this I am at my wits end! Barclays have closed my account and say they are investigating due to breach of terms, however there is £6500 in the account which I can't get access to or transfer to another account. They won't tell me anything and say I cannot complain because I closed the account even though I didn't! Background: Last year I did some work as a subcontractor for a company and my wages after CIS deductions were paid into my Barclays current account, after talks with them we agreed that I take over the full jobs (proj

  12. Hi all, I'm after some advice... I claim wftc as a single person - my husband passed away 3 years ago. When he passed away my husband had his own business of which we were both directors and our acountant filed our annual tax returns etc. After my husband died (he had a pub) i had to change the pub in to my nme in order to keep it going - pubco insisted. I set up a new limited company of which i was the sole director and informed hmrc of the change.

  14. Any help would be appreciated. I am trying to establish whether my solicitor has acted negligent by not following the pre-action protocol in respect of a Disrepair claim which has now been settled, after 6 years of my local council denying liability under the OLA 1957. I had an accident during the period where liability was being disputed but my solicitor is claiming that he did not have the funds to pursue a PI claim but never advised me on this, and on checking the pre action protocol under Disrepair claim there is reference that would suggest that in any event, a claim for PI aris
  15. Found this on the Mail where people are being hit with default CCJ even for a penny they know nothing about until the bailiff knocks or they are refused credit. It seems Crapita AKA parking Eye are getting default CCJ on alleged debts of a penny, as in o 0.01p. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3784421/Stranger-s-40-parking-ticket-cost-family-new-home.html

  17. 2yrs ago my x partner had a problem with them say that she owed £3k as an overpayment,what i will say is watch what you get on appeal with evidence !! it ended up costing us a small amount which i think they should repay for getting replacement Divorce papers i mean who keeps them after 25yrs! anyway there basis was house i was there and i owned a house which i had a £65k mortgage on that basic but not implying i was living in and renting to her, basic the do a credit check and low and behold who ever owns that property you may be renting shows the purchase price,it took getting a copy from t
  18. I received a letter today saying that I have been overpaid by £2400 for 2015 as I had been claiming for child DLA element when I did not receive it. The DLA had stopped and I did write to tell them but heard nothing back - they kept paying the amount so I thought maybe they were paying it from previous years and wouldn't be paying it unless I was entitled. The letter states that they have stopped my tax credits and that they will decide and notify me on what will happen next - either penalty or criminal conviction. I'm worried sick - any advice on what I do ne
  19. Hi there, Fantastic Forum. Keep up the good work. A while ago my friend has been accused of benefit fraud. She has sent in an appeal at the moment, and she is waiting for them to get back to her. I have helped her by reading posts on the forum, and following some of the advice being given on here. But now I am stuck and don’t know what to do now. Like I said she is waiting for her appeal, but now the housing association are getting tough on her. They are demanding the rent that has gathered up due to her housing benefit being stopped months ago. She has been paying her wate
  20. Hello, I'm new here and looking for help if possible. I was claiming tax credits as part of a couple with my husband until June 2015 when he left the family home. We had decided to separate with a view to divorcing and had put the house on the market, as soon as he actually moved out I rang tax credits to inform them. I should point out here that my husband DID NOT WORK and had not been working at any point during the claim period (one of the reasons for our separation). I was the sole earner and continued to be when he left. He never paid me any maintenance
  21. Hi All, I am a new member and so pleased to have found this site, to be able to ask my questions. I will try and keep it brief, my h received a letter inviting him to attend an interview under caution, this has not taken place yet, but it is imminent. He does have a medical condition and has proof of it, he was claiming ESA and the lower rate of PIP, this is only a relative new claim, always told them that I was working full time, no council tax benefit or housing benefit claimed for. He was on the benefit for 5 months, he started to feel
  22. Hi can you help me? Sometime ago I parked briefly in a pay and display car park owned by corporate services I didn't have the correct amount of change on me so I popped into a shop to get some. By the time I returned I had received a ticket. I ignored the letter they sent me & I have now received a demand for payment from a debt collecting agency for £160.00. Is there anything I can do? Thank you.
