  1. Hi, looking for some help here as to how I can get Hermes to cough up and refund me my money after losing my parcel. On the 7th January 2019 I sold a circular saw on eBay for £150.00, because of the weight I decided a courier was the best and cheapest way to send it to the buyer. It was dropped off at my local pick up point on Friday the 9th January for next day delivery. It was over a week before the buyer got in touch to ask me what was happening with the package, I was of the understanding it should’ve been with him by now. It was saying on Hermes website the parcel was at a local dep
  2. Virgin Media’s 4 million subscribers are set to lose 10 UKTV Channels from Sunday 22nd July. This includes Dave, Gold, Drama and W and popular shows such as Taskmaster, Red Dwarf XII and reruns of classics like Only Fools and Horses. Virgin Media customers are venting their frustrations over the loss of UKTV via Twitter, with some threatening to switch to rival television packages Sky or BT: David Bouchier, Virgin Media’s chief digital entertainment officer said: “The problem is the BBC does not grant the UKTV digital rights with its TV shows which leaves it somewhat stranded as
  3. 2 days ago I was the victim of a crime in my local town. There was an armed robbery in one of our local shops where thankfully nobody was hurt. The getaway car that the robbers used was dumped in a back street where I live and set it on fire. Unfortunately for me, the car was dumped beside where my car was safely and securely parked as a result of the heat from the enormous blaze, the back end of my car has been damaged. The plastics covering the bumper, lights and badge on my boot were all melted and cracked and my boot door was all discoloured. It's a wonder tha
  4. I normally manage to avoid the store exit reps, those who are selling double glazing, conservatories etc, However, yesterday whilst I was at the Range, I got caught by a lady working for a law firm offering an hour's free advice on how to avoid assets being gobbled up by Care Home Fees and Inheritance Tax. I have already written a will, as has hubby, with the help of our own solicitor - we are tenants in common on a mortgage free property and have both nominated our son to inherit our share of the property and assets in the event one of us dies before the other. The chances o
  5. My son is in the process of buying a house, and was recommended a solicitor, who is based away some where. My son has had to send some sensitive information to the solicitor, by post. He has sent two lots of info by recorded delivery, and on both occasions, the solicitor says he didn't receive them, although they were signed for. The solicitor seems incompetent, and is prolonging the purchase of the house, and causing consternation for my son, as he worries that the sale may fall through. Is there any complaints system to go to, or does my son ha
  6. Hello there I have not put anything on here before but my daughter has and so she has introduced me to this. I am in a pickle and feeling the stress and at almost 70 I could do without it. I was a guarantor for my son for a loan a while back and he got into a terrible mess and tried his hardest to pay the huge monthly payment but had gotten behind with repayments along with a mountain of debt form elsewhere. Now me myself, I too am in a lot of debt and it is worrying me to the point I am awake at night just about my own mess. I own my home but there is a lifetime motgage on it as I
  7. Hi, for the last 6 weeks I've noticed men in cars and vans , yes losing my mind because I think there following me, came out of my corner shop this guy staring at me, never thought no more about it, then on another occasion I'm going out of my back garden, he's there again, and now there's a white van and a black van circling my house, the guy in the black van parked outside my house for a few minutes then drove off, you must think I'm sad, I don't go out very often do to my illness, so I know who's who when I'm sat gazing out my window, I'm on benefits ,

  9. Hi all, Hoping someone can help me here.. .unsure if I can claim against unfair or constructive dismissal due to the timeframe etc and am seeking advice on what to do and where to go so here goes.... I dismissed from an employed back in August for what they have described as gross misconduct.

  10. Citizens Advice warns that without a change in the law, more and more innocent second-hand car buyers could have their vehicle taken from them because of an outstanding logbook loan from the previous owner. New research with 874 used car buyers, released by the national charity today, finds: 63% of used car buyers did not check if the car they were buying had an outstanding loan attached; 2 in 5 drivers have never heard of a log book loan; 44% did not know they could have their car taken away by a log book lender, even if they are not the original borrower. Logb
  11. Hi Guys, I originally sought advice from this site about 6 years ago, suing the banks for charges and totally won which was brilliant. I'm back now, hoping some of the amazing folks on here will help me with my latest financial catastrophe. I was made redundant in 2012 with a pay-off and during 2013 while struggling to find a new job we got into some payment difficulties with our mortgage which is £790 per month. We've been in contact with the mortgage company and have paid as much as we can but there were several thousand in arrears. We made our payment in March (our normal amo

  13. A young chap , 25, has lost almost all the sight in one eye. He can still drive, for now, and he works for a large betting company. He went to one hospital and they delayed treatment and told him that if he was 16 he'd be a more urgent case. This was 2 years ago. He's been referred to another and told that they have to go through the whole evaluation again as they can't use what the other hospital has sent them and that will take 2 years and he will be completely blind by then as he needs cornea transplants amongst others. If he were a private patient he could have it done for £5000 wit
  14. Hi, I hope someone can help me with this nightmare I am having with Vodafone. I was looking at moving to a new service provider and requested my PAC code, however as I was away on holiday and busy at home, I didn't get around to using it, so as it was nearing the end of it's period, I called Vodafone to find out if it could be extended or if I needed a new code? I stupidly was convinced to stay with them and they would reduce my charges, I was told everything would just continue as normal on my account . A few days later,I lost service and called to find out wh

  16. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has criticised local government’s attitude towards protecting personal data, after four local councils were issued civil monetary penalties. Leeds City Council was served a monetary penalty of £95,000, Plymouth City Council £60,000 and Devon County Council £90,000 after separate incidents saw details of child care cases sent to the wrong recipients, while the London Borough of Lewisham was issued a penalty of £70,000 after social work papers were left on a train. The penalties mean that nineteen local councils have now received monetary penalties for
  17. To help consumers keep abreast of the latest financial deals we take a closer look at some recent product launches. While there has been a flurry of low-cost credit card deals in recent months, most of us are paying more for our plastic, according to new research. Moneyfacts, the financial analyst, found that the average interest rate charged on credit cards for purchases is now 19.1pc, the highest it has been for 18 months. These APR rates have increased to help pay for the short-term introductory offers, that are used to attract new customers. The number of credit card providers offeri
