  2. Hi there I am about to start proceedings against somebody in the judiciary and by a quick search I have found this website https://judicialconduct.judiciary.gov.uk/ . Before I delve headlong into it has anybody had dealings with this Investigations Office ? All replies answered.
  3. Hi there , yesterday on the 1/07/2016 , i boarded a train from llansamlet to Cardiff , there was no conductor on the train , as I arrived in Cardiff I had to go to the unpaid fair's desk , as I was there about to buy my ticket I had a stupid moment of madness and told the guy at the ticket office that I boarded on Bridgend but he caught me out by saying that there were ticket tolls at Bridgend and I completely froze , I then got taken by a transport investigations officer she gave me a quick interview and asked me questions in regards to what just happened , I told her I was sorry
  4. Hello, I have read with interest postings re: Transport Investigations Limited. I unfortunately am having to deal with them currently and am after any advice fellow consumer action group members may be able to offer. In summary, I use a mobile train ticket app which entails purchasing upfront a bundle of 12 journeys in a package. So they are pre-paid tickets which require individual ticket activation before use. On the particular day in question I genuinely forgot to activate a ticket until arriving at my destination. This may also have been down to the app being very tempr

  6. Hi again, wondering if you knowledgeable people can answer this and help me; My current employer has agreed to me leaving (PILON). They have agreed a factual reference which I have a draft of, which pretty much states that I was good at my job, well respected which I'm fine with. Now, there is a final written warning on my record which was for a year and falls of on X date. They have included a paragraph stating this and also stating that it was not due to competency. They add that there have been no further issues or concerns regarding my conduct. Now due to my line of work I would ex
  7. The following is a link to an excellent press story featured today regarding the frankly pathetic shambles of private parking enforcement and proof once again that "cowboy clampers" have indeed turned into "cowboy ticketers" . The article also states that apparently POPLA are struggling with appeals and that DVLA have made a fortune from selling personal data. As you will also see, BPA are confirming that CEL are under "investigation" for their failure to abide by the BPA's "recommendations" by capping the maximum charge of their tickets at £100 !!! Only a few days ago local
  8. Hello, I'll keep this as brief as possible... I am currently on 2 weeks suspension from work following an incident that happened on the 19th. I walked out on after a customer was being verbally abusive and falsely accused me of "giving the finger" to her sister. The reason I walked out is that my duty manager seemed to find the incident funny and did not back me up, telling me to grow up. The letter I have received from works says I am suspended for: Allegations of abusive and objectionable behaviour towards customers Leaving the workplace during the duty period without permis
  9. The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has launched formal investigations into several payday lenders for “aggressive” debt collection practices, after finding 686 consumer complaints across the sector. In a progress report published as part of the OFT’s compliance review of the payday lending sector, it confirmed that it will be writing to 240 short-term lenders from today (20 November) to highlight its concerns about poor practices in the sector. The findings were partly based on 686 complaints made directly by consumers and through intermediaries, half of which were related to issues around debt
  10. my son purchased an annual train ticket for the duration of his work placement for his 3rd year of his degree - at a cost of c.£1,800. on one of the days covered by this annual ticket, whilst already travelling, he was asked to show his ticket - he had forgotten his wallet and therefore could not show the annual ticket. he did not have any cash, so could not purchase a ticket for that day's travel. the guard reported the incident and my son received a threat of summons - no mention of any other means of resolving the situation. we wrote a letter, explaining that he had an a
  11. I was stopped on 24/04/2012 in cross country when I was travelling from Leeds to Sheffield in Cross Country. I was using a two part return ticket during that travel which i used while coming to Leeds. I used to live in Sheffield and have Travelmaster southyorkshire pass fortrain travel in South yorkshire. When I travelled from Sheffield to Leeds I was issued a two part ticket from moorthorpe to leeds as south yorkshire boundary ends there. While returning from Leeds, i just missed a train in a platform and a member of staff in the railway station asked me when i wanted to go. I told him
  12. I received a letter today to say that Incapacity now ESA had evidence to state I had a period of work between 2007 and 2010. Goes on to say they have included details from the employer and if I accept that I did this work could I answer the questions on the attached sheet. such as please provide the dates you worked, days of week worked, normal working pattern ? If they have enough evidence already why are they asking for more? At this stage I have requested an FOI but am unsure as to what other rights I have?
  13. Information Note Wednesday 4 April 2012 OFGEM LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO ENERGY SALES BY E.ON Ofgem has today opened an investigation to establish whether E.ON is complying with its obligations on energy sales. The investigation is being launched following information which has come to Ofgem’s attention regarding E.ON’s marketing activities. In 2009 and 2010, Ofgem strengthened suppliers’ obligations relating to energy sales. The changes set out that suppliers are required to put in place robust processes to guard against misselling. These obligation
  14. Hello, my first post so please be gentle. I received a letter from Tower Investigations Ltd on the 23rd June. The letter text spelled my name wrong (missing a vowel) and looked like a spam junk mail letter. I ignored it until I decided for fun to google the company and found a few forum threads explaining that this company was chasing debt for LloydsTSB. To give you some context, I haven't had a TSB bank account since I was a University student and graduated in 1999. I do not remember whether or not there was any debit associated with the bank account and overdraft. I am in credit in
