  1. Currently running at 87% of decisions same as original DM decision because.... This folks is why you should ignore the DWP and appeal! I'll give DWP DMs the benefit of the doubt here as although my last MR for DLA was refused.... the Mandatory Reconsideration DM actually didn't write against my new lower award but how I could win at appeal! Bizarre but true ! Reddit thread Rightsnet thread https://www.rightsnet.org.uk/forums/viewthread/11271/
  2. Hi I would like to send a letter to my loan company offering them an increased payment monthly to clear off the arrears on my account. I have completed a budget sheet and will include this with my letter. Is there a template I can use, or can someone help me with the wording please. I have received default notices and i think the lender is taking legal action and looking to repossess. I want to stop this if possible please. Thanks.
  3. Had a phone call from .......... saying that you can now reclaim your monthly payments paid to banks for packaged accounts such as Barclays Additions where the benefits were not fully explained.. No win, no fee but wanted 37% of any successful although were very happy to negotiate this fee... Is this the next big reclaim opportunity or bulls**t.
  4. The screens, which can tell a customers' age and gender, are being placed into petrol stations across the UK. Tesco is set to install hi-tech screens that scan customers' faces in petrol stations so that advertisements can be better targeted at them. The retailer will introduce the OptimEyes screen, developed by Lord Sugar's Amscreen, to all 450 of its UK petrol stations, in a five-year deal, according to The Grocer magazine. The screen, positioned at the till, scans the faces of customers to determine age and gender, and then runs tailored advertisements. The technology also adjusts adverts depending on the time and date, as well as monitoring customer purchases, The Grocer said. The screens are predicted to reach a weekly audience of more than five million adults. Simon Sugar, chief executive of Amscreen, told the industry magazine: "Yes it's like something out of Minority Report, but this could change the face of British retail and our plans are to expand the screens into as many supermarkets as possible."

  5. Claims management company Money Boomerang will finally launch a TV advertising campaign focusing on mortgage misselling later this month - but it will specifically target brokers rather than mortgages arranged direct. The CMC first announced it was expanding its focus from payment protection insurance to mortgages in October last year. It subsequently revealed in January that it was pushing back the launch of its campaign until February but it has now confirmed that on 15 April its adverts will be televised across Freeview and digital channels. In addition, the firm only accepts claims where the applicant has been sold a mortgage by either a broker or an independent financial adviser. It says the campaign is designed to determine the amount of potential business in a new market. The firm’s website gives examples of what may be deemed misselling. These include customers who were sold a sub-prime or self-certified deal when it was unnecessary; “the broker came back every few years to arrange a new mortgage (churning)”, according to the firm’s website; the mortgage was swapped from capital repayment to interest-only with no repayment vehicle or means of repaying the capital at the end of the term; or refinance for debt consolidation “without appropriate advice”. Money Boomerang director and head of mortgages Ian Barlow says: “The message is quite straightforward but we don’t know how the public is going to respond. This is the first step towards finding out what the appetite is like from the general public.” Association of Mortgage Inter-mediaries chairman Pat Bunton says: “We are obviously concerned this is starting to emerge and it adds unnecessary costs to intermediary firms. While we would never decry a consumer’s rights to make a complaint about a valid misselling issue, that is completely different to a claims management firm trawling and making a complaint where there is no issue.” In the two months that Money Boomerang has been accepting such claims, Barlow says applications have been close to 100 a month. But Goldsmith Williams partner Eddie Goldsmith, who also runs claims firm PPI Return, says most brokers will be able to show why they picked a particular product for a client. He says: “CMCs are going to have a hard, uphill struggle to substantiate these cases. There is a lot of hype about this and it looks like the aim might be to encourage networks and brokers to settle when they do not really have to.” Link: http://www.mortgagestrategy.co.uk/latest-news/mortgage-misselling-tv-ad-to-target-brokers/1069079.article
  6. Many years ago a friend paid into a private pension for a couple of years until times were hard and he couldn't afford it any more. Every year the pension seemed to be worth less and less, and the transfer amount always made it a waste of time moving it. After about 25 years he took the pension as a triviality payment, but now wonders if there may have been some unfair charges which could be worth claiming back. What are the rules on what they could charge? The company was originally Target but over the years this changed several times, finally ending up as Abbey Life.
