  2. In view of two similar threads regarding right of forced entry for criminal fines, it might be good to clarify the situation where the front door of the debtor's residence is not immediately accessible: Flat block with secure entryphone system no trade button Postie has access code Flat block with secure entryphone system with trade button Secure OAP extra care facility with entryphone, Resident might have a speeding fine for their mobility scooter when plates were cloned or camera garbles the reg no of a speeding car (actually happened to a Flint Pensioner) Gated dev
  3. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-suffolk-37385201 When you see that hackers have gained access to some systems you think would be the most secure on the planet, it makes you wonder. Your Bank ? Credit reference agencies ? National Health Service/Doctors records ? UK government records ? I have had conversations with IT contractors who develop systems for financial services companies and they all say thay you can only continually review security, closing any gaps where they are found. But they all say that it is impossible to offer 100% security, because hacker
  4. Hi - following our split, my ex stopped paying the mortgage and eventually handed the keys back to the bank. It was subsequently sold at a loss it seems (I can see on Zoopla that it sold for around £35k less than the mortgage value, in Oct '10). A letter from a debt collector found it's way to me a while back (via an old address) and it seems Welcome Finance are chasing c.£30k from me for a secured loan we took out with Freedom finance years ago. We paid the debt off in full - I remember feeling elated when we'd paid our final instalment! So how can they be chas
  5. I am dealing with my late sister's affairs at her request and no will was made. The estate is very nominal and she left her affairs small and tidy to sort out - however, unfortunately, time was against us when trying to get a few things in place. My sister had an account called One Bill whereby she paid a monthly amount over to STB who then paid nominated bills on her behalf. (Your possibly wondering why in this day and age but that was her choice) She had a lot to deal with medically. She also had a current account whereby she had a 'Top up' type credit card which she had to lo
  6. I hope this is the right topic. I just used my bank card online. I'm terrible at remembering passwords and my account has recently changed to 3 boxes where you choose random letters/numbers rather than the whole password. I thought I'd got it right but I hadn't so it asked me to choose a new one. So lets get this straight, a thief finds my card. Decides to use it but doesn't know the secure code so is invited to reset it???? Really??? The only thing it asked as a security question that hadn't been included when I put my card details in for the purchase was the sort code. Which
  7. A study by Checkmarx and AppSec Labs specifically looked at the security of hundreds of the most popular apps found in the respective platforms’ app stores, testing them for security risks and vulnerabilities. According to the report, 40 percent of the iOS apps tested were found to have vulnerabilities rated as “critical” or “high severity.” Android apps fared marginally better at 36 percent. Android isn't that far behind, but this is 'another' one in the eye for those that continually brag Apple are safer.
  8. Earlier this month there were some stories on SCOOP about Caterham cars (Formula One racing) after an huge amount of goods were seized and removed by The Sheriffs Office. Another report on the front page of SCOOP today 'appears' to be saying that Caterham's future in Formula One appears to be safe. From the report today it would seem that the Sheriffs Office may not be able to sell the goods seized (this would include the Caterham Formula One 'rig car' that is rumored to be worth a great deal of money..... http://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/sport/11548896.Caterham_not_under_threat
  9. Hi there, Looking for a little advise if possible please. We took out a loan many years ago 2004 roughly for 35000. We would like to sell our home and have a potential offer for the house we'd like to accept. However.. We thought we would be able to cover the costs with the sale as first plus said we only had 11300 (roughly) outstanding.. This took a while to even get as they kept sending us to Evershed and then evershed would say not us go to first plus.. Very annoying. . They said that it was minus interest but the total figure cam in today just say £29,689
  10. Hi all, I was wondering if you could help me. I split up with my partner a while back and I was living with her however, her tenancy ended up 20th so I had a homeless assessment done by the council almost two weeks ago and they allocated me a studio flat that is through a private landlord and is £148 per week, the council have said because this is not a normal private rent and because I'm on ESA the rent will be paid in full. I moved in yesterday and the place is freezing and thats an understatement even with two electric heaters on, i have health issues that mean i cant be cold

  13. Hi fellow CAGgers, I got a parking invoice in the lovely town of Workington back on 6th August 2012. As usual I popped it away in a safe place and forgot about it. Today I get a nice letter from Secure Car Parks Limited asking me to pay it. I usually just ignore as I know the idiots will give up and go away after time. This letter though made me laugh at what lies they will go to to try and make people pay. As stated above the invoice was popped on my car in August of this year. The protection of freedom act came into play 1st October. They have
  14. I am a secure tenant (30+years) and live in fair rented HA accommodation. The rent officer visited my current home 9 years ago (as new build) and wants to visit again soon. What is (in plain language) the formula for setting fair rents? Is the service charge included in the setting of or is this on top of set fair rent? What is the maximum percentage my rent could increase by? Thank You
