  1. I've been reading around this forum before posting but I can't find an answer. I think I may be in an unusual position, so any advice specific to me would be great. I need to leave my job next week. Let's just leave it as a 'personality clash' (Manager is a , I'm not! lol) I've found a new job starting 1st November. Great! BUT, I went to the job centre on Friday and my area is trialing UC, and so the first payment I'd get is in 7 weeks from when I leave my job. Obviously I'll be working by then, but won't be paid till 1st December. I have no savings, but have pa
  2. THOUSANDS of British Gas customers may have had direct debit payments taken twice following an IT glitch. British Gas told The Sun online that less than 1 per cent of customers were affected by the problem. It supplies gas and electricity to over 14million homes, meaning some 140,000 customers could be affected by the fault . A British Gas spokesperson confirmed that a “small proportion” of customers have had direct debit payments twice and that any money taken in error would be refunded. https://www.thesun.co.uk/living/2262624/british-gas-takes-direct-debit-payments-twice-
  3. On post 19 of this thread- http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?466480-Equita-threatening-court-action-despite-payment-arrangement(4-Viewing)-nbsp Dodgeball said " is he aware that whenever an EA is instructed the fees will be applied again by the new bailiff." That sounds as if a second fee of £75 can be charged and later another of £235. I must be reading it wrongly since I can see no reference in the Legislation for charging more than £75 and £235 for each L/O. I am unaware of how bailiffs are paid but I am guessing that the bailiff company will
  4. A mother, furious at waiting more than 48 hours for her online shopping, stormed into her local Asda and took it from the shelves herself. Danni Leadbeater, 30, ordered a £50 shop from the supermarket for herself and her two young children last week. However, it failed to turn up twice after her order was cancelled by the store and then re-booked. And after waiting more than two days, and being charged twice for it, she took matters into her own hands. She went into the Eastlands superstore, opposite Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium and began taking the items from the shelv

  6. As any sensible person will know, the Freeman movement are stating that using WeRe cheques are legal tender. Errm! Nope The Financial Conduct Authority have taken an interest in this and have published a statement. http://www.fca.org.uk/news/consumer-notice-were-bank If that doesn't convince you to stay away, you had better start investing in tinfoil hats
  7. Hi floks, I think it's a reasonably simple issue (or so I hope). I have had set up by the property agency a direct debit for my rent of £800 from my account. It's been going smooth until today. The agency DD'ed the full amount - however, I'm moving out of the property 10th of this month. The agency, of course, knows about it as they have themselves informed me long time ago I had to move out as the landlord is sellling the property. I had in this bank account less than £800 so it shows right now that my balance is negative. I guess,
  8. Microsoft has taken a stand against the US Government and put itself into contempt by refusing to hand over data stored on it's Irish cloud servers to the NSA. More and more companies are using the cloud and if they can't rely on privacy and secrecy of their commercially sensitive data, they will stop using the cloud for storage. Microsoft has a number of allies include Apple, Google, Dropbox, and Amazon. May they win for all our sakes. If business stops using the cloud, there will not be enough income to maintain the services just for the public storing music and pict
  9. After every flight, Qantas pilots complete a form called a "Gripe Sheet" which tells the mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on the form and the pilots then review the Gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that the ground crews lack a sense of humour. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas' pilots (P) and the solutions recorded by the maintenance engineers (S) Apparently Qantas is the only major airline that has never, ever had an accident. P: Left inside
  10. The state-owned arm of Northern Rock has brought a legal claim against itself to test whether or not it owes compensation to 43,000 customers who took out loans before the building society’s collapse. Northern Rock Asset Management (NRAM) is on Tuesday appearing at the Commercial Court in London in the hope of getting legally-binding confirmation that customers with loans of £25,000 or more are not entitled to have their interest payments returned or written off. One of the defendants in the case is named as Jeffrey McAdam, who leads unsecured debt recovery
  11. The Labour leader has launched an attack on our "Wonga economy" saying payday lenders are "running riot through our communities". Ed Miliband accused the firms of preying upon vulnerable people then intimidating them with bullying tactics when they failed to repay the loans. He said they had created a "quiet crisis" for thousands of households saddled with debts they were unable to pay off. In a speech at Battersea Power Station, Mr Miliband said that he had visited the Citizens' Advice Bureau in his Doncaster constituency and heard the stories of a number of people who had become victim
  12. My wife and I have debts totalling £45k to Lloyds TSB (the CAB arranged £5 a month two years ago on each £35 a month in total) These are 3 credit cards and 4 unsecured loans All was well on keeping up payments and still would be but I have had a letter saying they want to review the payment. Is it just likely to be that or in the light of charging order legislation is it more sinister.? A little about us The reason I fell behind is my health and I an now barely able to walk or use my hands and I am getting worse and my wife is to put it kindly "confused" and suf
  13. Hello, I don't know if any one can give me any advice. Last week a bailiff from the Marston Group turned up at the house - I was away with work; my wife answered the door - he demanded payment of £875 or the car would be towed away and subsequently clamped the car. My wife was desperately trying to get hold of me - but I was in meetings, so couldn't speak to her. She was trying to get our six year old and four year old ready for school - and was exceptionally upset by their intimidating, aggressive behaviour, under this duress she paid. We had no idea where the fine came from
  14. British bank customers were hit by a new outbreak technological breakdowns today as Nationwide confirmed payments from current accounts had been debited twice - and NatWest account holders were shocked to find problems re-emerging there, having only just recovered from last month's IT debacle. Reports from Nationwide customers of double-charging appeared on social networking website Twitter today and the building society has since confirmed that some debit card payments made on Tuesday 24 July were also replicated on Wednesday 25 July. And incredibly, as RBS-owned NatWest is still wading
