  1. Hi guys the same has happend to me, I stole 50 pound worth of stuff, should I pay rlp
  2. I am a pensioner and full-time round the clock carer to a close disabled relative. I receive no benefits apart from the usual state pension. The disabled relative I care for has severe care needs and is unable to work, they receive PIP and ESA. Upset and frustrated by lack of interest on my life savings I started reading info on savings on the Martin Lewis website. To maximise interest it is recommended to open several of the top interest paying current accounts - which I did. I had money over so accounts were also opened in the person I care for's name (all my money, paid directly to ac
  3. JAMIE OLIVER is imposing his own levy on sweet drinks sold in his restaurants in protest at the government’s refusal to introduce a “sugar tax”. Oliver, the celebrity chef and restaurateur, will add a 10p charge to every drink with added sugar in an attempt to highlight the dangers of too much sugar, as well as sending a message to government to take urgent action on childhood obesity. He's thought up a way of making extra profit on the backs of kids. If he was really that concerned, he would stop selling sugary drinks altogether. Will you fall for this and pay extra ? I woul
  4. Hello again, Yet again something absolutely stupid has happened to me. My car has been stolen, but it couldn't be that simple. I have a red Alfa Romeo, SORN and uninsured, I took the engine out of it an transplanted it in my car, and took a few other bits and bats so it was just a rolling shell full of junk (became our skip as we knew we were getting rid). We towed it to the local scrap yard this morning (on an A frame which wasn't really legal). When we got to the gates, we realised we had forgot the V5. So unhooked the car, drove home and got it. When we got back to the s
  5. hi, I have been very stupid and opened a catalogue in my mums name I tried to order something but the order was declined so I stupidly rung the company and they said are you sure this is you because you sound very young, I then replid by saying no this is my mums account I am ringing on her behalf, they asked why she couldn't do it, I then replied saying she isn't very good with computers and ordering ect so that is why I have done it for her. they told me that only my mum can ring and she will have to ring back herself, I am now very worried that I am going to get in trouble ??? the order
  6. Hi, First of all, unlike a lot of people on this site, I did shoplift. I knew what I was doing, I made a stupid choice, and I don't really understand why I did it. Just was trying on a bunch of stuff, and then thought I could get way with it, and walking out of the shop was stopped. I knew I was doing something wrong, I felt guilty even before I left the shop but wanted to see if I hd done it (and whilst it was a one off, I had previously taken small things - to see if I could- I think 2 other situations both a while apart. A scarf once, and a hair product once. I
  7. 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
  8. just had a phonecall on my landline asking me to confirm some details I said ok (i was expecting a phone call about something anyway that would require some details) when he asked if where i was living I told him only for him to then go I'm so and so from something location services and we have a client who is trying to track you down I asked who was after me and he wouldn't say but asked to confirm an address I haven't lived at for almost 5 years. I said I couldn't remember he said ok and hung up. I googled the number and it was Wescott debt collection. The address h
  9. A chap in Bromsgrove decided to take his family out to lunch, they parked their car in one of the council-run car parks and put a £I in the machine for the privilege. When he returned to his car there was a penalty charge on his windscreen for £25. He was 7 minutes late, when you have a couple of kids to control it can take you a little bit longer getting back to your car. (but that is beside the point). This he felt was very hypocritical when, at the same time this car park was taken over by a group of (so called) travellers who were camping in the car park. He thought it would be i
  10. Hi I work in an office and stupidly borrowed some money from the accounts safe with no authorisation and had every intention of paying it back. I had 75% of it today to replace. I have went into work and I have been found out and now have been suspended on full pay. I have admitted i took the money and did not deny it and paid the money I had and said I will pay remainder this week. I am worried in losing my job, I have no one to talk too as I feel too embarrassed to discuss with my family...... I would like any advice is to what I can say in my disciplinary meeting, I am unsure when t
  11. Hi all, Despite the people at rossendales being given a cease and desist over the phone, and verbally when they called (this was filmed, and yes the bailiff did discuss in public confidential details without ascertaining who I was, and no I didn't give any info whatsoever) I also informed him that he was trespassing (which he denied) and asked him to leave the property (which he refused and said I could call the police if I wished, I said thankyou and goodbye, walked back into my home and he left reasonably quickly - I never called the police), they called again an
  12. First off, let me explain that I am in Shetland. So other courier services like DHL or FedEx is not an option. I had some documents I need to send to Philippines very urgently for a visa application for a honeymoon. I walked into the local Post Office on Friday, 7 June 2013, and got it sent by Parcelforce Global Express service, which is a "guaranteed" service. I paid £60.60 and was told it will be there on Tuesday, 11 June 2013. Standard Global Express service to Philippines takes 2 days but being in Shetland, it takes an extra day. Saturaday is counted as a working day, so a Tuesda
  13. I have no idea how much UK Plc is in debt... I do wonder why we need to borrow from private bankers though? A sovereign state can issue its own debt free currency so why borrow? Who are these trillions owed to by every nation? This debt owed by so many to so few is a [problem], it has been engineered to enslave us all. Once the control of money was transferred from the gold standard and was handed over to private banks we were screwed. Private banks such as the US Federal reserve literally create money from nothing without having anything to back it up with such as gold.

  16. We have 2 laptops a HP notebook (bought cheap for daughters homework etc) and a HP laptop (work provided) and they are both great - However they both have an annoying little foible... when you are 'scrolling' about a screen with the mouse pad a tiny scroll bar appears at the side of the pointer and the screen jumps to the top or bottom and it's really frustrating does anyone know how to get rid of this??? (I asked IT dept at work and was told 'oh it's probably in you devices - pointer/mouse settings' but I couldn't find anything tat made a difference

  19. I have been incredibly careless and stupid and never properly checked my Child Tax Credit Award or renewal form. I found it all very stressful & all I did was fill in figures & sign, and all my partner did was sign. So it turns out I have been getting the Severe Disability Element of CTC for my child for several years when I shouldn't of (do get DLA so I do qualify for the first element) All I can say in my defence is that when I first notified Tax Credits I was receiving DLA for my son I was asked what level he was receiving. I said I didn't know gave them a reference number and
