Hello people, My name is [removed - dx], I am 26 years old., From Bedfordshire. I have 4 kids (please don't judge) with 3 mother's, 2 of whom we are good, my youngest child's mother always causes issues if I give her money like the other 2, she is not grateful and wants more, which is unfair to the other mother's, she went to CSA and claimed I never got involved with my child and also went to my work place and put in a complaint, claiming I was breaching data protection a case was brought up but I was okay as she kept changing stories. But it got to me mentally and I eventually quit my job, I took a few weeks out of work and worked in a new place now CSA sent me a letter saying they'll take 50 pound each week from my new wages which was less than I was giving her, then I received a new letter stating they was going to take 120£ a week. At the time I was living in a shared house and could barely afford to pay rent with this new job, let alone pay for my other kids, I ended up working overtime everyweek and loosing out on sleep, so I could hardly see my children, this started to affect my health, my life and was making me really weak, I wasn't eating. I rang them and pleaded with them, supporting my case with what I could and saying I couldn't afford what you was taking, but they had made it so it came straight out of my wages, I couldn't pay a single penny to my rent, I couldn't afford food, or even to pay for my other children, I eventually became homeless and turned to alcohol (iknow that isn't great, please don't judge) with no home, I lost my job (which was night shift) I had nowhere to go. I've had various mental health assessments also. Until I met a very old primary school friend and he took me into his home up north in Lancashire, he housed me for a bit while I started work, and got myself a place.. things was going okay, my mental state really improved. Until I received another letter this morning, stating they will be taking even more money. Is there anything I can do, I'm sure it is illegal to make someone feel so low and homeless. If anyone can help that would be much appreciated, even if it's something small.... I just don't know what to do.
Hi, About a year ago I bought a Sony Ericcson Satio Vodafone contract with Phone4u from their store in my local town. £40 a month (this was my 1st mobile phone contract). The next day, I realised my mistake at making this purchase due to my current financial situation (loss of job) and so went into the phone4u shop to with the phone still packaged and undamaged, I stated I had made a mistake and asked for a refund. They then said sorry but we've introduced a new in store policy stating that we will not give refunds and they said that I would have to wait out the full 2 year contract in order to cancel. When I got home I made various phone calls, Vodafone told me that they were fine about me cancelling the contract but phone4u wouldn't allow it. It is now a year ahead and my finances are getting slim. Is there anyway I can cancel the contract or reduce the monthly cost down from £40 a month? Thanks, Marcus
