  2. Long one… I have worked for the same company for 16 years about 10 years ago I needed to borrow about £10k. I also borrowed other bits over the 3 years after but nothing since then. I had a good relationship with my employer and I was paying it back at about £100-150 a month. No interest on the loan. Think the total amount was £15k. There was never an agreement and I signed nothing nor did I ever enquire about the amount still owed, money was just deducted from my wages. In the middle of last year my employer died and the company was sold to another guy who ha
  3. Hi all, I signed up with BT Broadband, phone and tele however I've since been offered a deal with Virgin that I think is better. My Bt was due to start on Monday however I didn't get the packages that day as I wasn't in. They are still at the post office. However i phoned them today to cancel and they say as I'm out of the 14 day peace of mind period (which is shorter than the time it took for equipment to arrive) I can only cancel if i give them just short of seven hundred quid. To confirm, I have never activated any service and even if i had then it would only be three days
  4. Hello all, I received today a letter from "marston High Court Enforcement Officers" : Strange thing is that I have NEVER received any letter, information or anything prior to above notice. ..but the stranger thing is that I NEVER drove a vehicle without a valid licence - besides on the date of this incident (13/06/2016) I was home off sick, after being hospitalised for 4 days (doctor gave me a sick note for 2 weeks) - I was unable to drive during this time due to heavy dosage of antybiotics & painkilles and the fact that my left foot
  5. I was caught doing 51 in a 40 zone by a mobile speed camera in Feb 2016. I paid the fine of £100 and I have the receipt of payment and confirmation on my emails and the money was taken from my account as expected. Now, 7 months later, I received 2 letters through the post this morning regarding the same incident in February. One from the courts saying the have endorsed my license with 6 points and one from the DVLA with a fine for £569 which includes a fine of £440 + Victim Surge charge of £44 and "costs" of £85. It also states there has been a court hearing in my absence

  7. Not to be confused with another case I have ongoing at the moment. Been trawling my Credit Reports regularly for some time now (only because they are 'free') and the only outstanding issue showing on them is an older Natwest account that Defaulted in late 2010. The default came about as I bailed out of the account with an O/D of about £2200 and the monthly charges were something like £28 + Interest. This was taking a significant chunk of my monthly earnings at the time and the Unfair Charges thing was ongoing. Now, the account is still shown as being with Natwest and I was expecting
  8. Hey all, just checking my wife's statutory report online for the first time in over 6 years using equifax and there is 1 account which is very odd, details below 13/12/2007 Account fell in to arrears in May 2008 and late markers placed on file, NO PAYMENTS made 100% sure since may 2008 yet this account was not defaulted until 29/6/2010, thats is more than 2 years after last payment. I know its only 6 months and it will drop off anyway, but is it worth me trying to sort this, this should have come off her file 2 years ago. Account in question is Communicati
  9. After realising there are many craftspeople about.I thought it would be nice to open a thread for many that work this way. Whether full time or part time if there is such a thing. I realise many put many hours in perhaps for little return,but are happy to create. If you do such a thing whether for profit or fun tell us what you do and maybe send a photo or two that shows your craft. I do not know what many do but would like to know. You could make cakes,you could bake,you could embroider,knit,carve.I have not a clue what you may do but would like to know. Are you a craf
  10. THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT'S CALCULATION OF AVAILABLE PENSION IS THAT THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN ALL THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED OLD AGE PENSION. WHERE DID ALL THAT MONEY GO? Remember, not only did you and I contribute to our Pension, our employer did, too. It totalled 15% of your income before taxes. Read some More
  11. Thought I'd post my recent experience of how it should be done by maufacturers and dealers. I drive a 2008 Volvo C70 which I bought locally from a independant secondhand car dealer in June last year. Recently the boot lid started unlocking itself and you could hear the catch 'cycling' as if I was holding my hand on the button. As it's one of these hard-top convertibles the boot is part of a massively complex mechanism that splits the roof into three bits, stacks them on top of one another and pops it all in the boot, I opted to bite the bullet and take the car to Volvo rather than ri
  12. I am really needing some help. I have a house valued at £110,000 and a mortgage of £105,000 which I may need to sell. The only problem is I have a secured loan of £34,000 on my home through Picture (or whoever they are now) which has arreas of £650 and they will only get bigger as I am no longer able to afford the loan. What I am wanting to know is am I allowed to sell my home even though the secured loan won't get paid off. I am intending to rent if I can sell my home. Any advice would be much appreciated. I don't want to sell if I don't have to but will Picture?? take my home even if t
  13. Ello, What's the penalty issued to a business using the full electoral register (i.e. non commercial) one for gaining personal details for fishing expeditions? they deny ever fishing, but I've got their first ever letter to my address, which read something to the order of : Thats not the exact wording as I don't have it at hand, but it's just to give you an idea of what the fishing letter looked like. When I get a chance tomorrow, I'll get a scanned copy of it and transcribe it. But the example I gave above is pretty much the same as whats on the letter, just

Until recently I didn't know there were foxes burrowed under one of the bushes.

  17. Heya I've bui,t up over time an Apple iWorks (Numbers) spreadsheet which I use to manage: 1) WHo I owe Money to 2) How much I've paid 3) When I've Paid 4) Who I called or who called me and when 5) Who I get letters from or send them to and when It's been invaluable to helping me out. I've caught a few people out with their figures being incorrect, and shockingly enough, I've had compliments from quite a few of DCA's in the past at how organised I am Can an admin/mod/site team member look at it and consider for the templates section? I do realise it's MAC onl
