  1. My elderly mum 76 was very ill so I made an emergency GP appointment for my mother. I suspected she had pneumonia she was finding it difficult to breath, had immense aches and pains she was vomiting throughout the day. She was unable to stand up herself and was on the verge on collapsing. She had visibly got worse and worse as the day professed. Me and my brother struggled to get our mother into the car to get to the GP. My mother was in immense pain it was terrible. She was made to wait in the GP's waiting area for at least 20mins in great pain and
  2. Hi All, It's a quick question. I took a credit card out with Lloyds Bank, then unfortunately I was made redundant. I went though their income and expenditure document to inform Lloyds and they put a hold on the card. About 5months later they put a repayment plan in place and according to them, they sent a letter. I did not receive this letter and they made no other contact to me about this. The bank said that because I had failed to pay the repayment plan, the account will be sent to another company. My point is, if I receive nothing about a repayment plan, and the bank
  3. This article was I believe first published in December 2016, but has been updated as of today, 3rd April 2017. Looking at the chart, in each of the 5 quarters since 2015 - Vodafone is consistently the most complained about provider. Of course we here on CAG didnt need OFCOM to let us know this, did we ?
  4. Just had phone call from DWP telling me my ESA is ending today(8 weeks after my medical)??? I had my medical on the 1st July 2016,which as usual I have received "0"points! They have told me I have to make a claim today (so that I get a continuation of benefit??) Can somebody please tell me if they can do this with no warning? And will this cause problems with my housing benefit/council tax(which happened to me before, whilst waiting for my appeal and took months to sort out(but lost out on a lot of benefit) so now i'm terrified that its going to happen again!!!! Any advice would be w
  5. Hiya, we moved into our current rented property in October 2015 and were told that Spark energy are the gas and electric suppliers. Ever since then they have sent us a monthly bill of which we've always paid. This morning we received a bill for 315.64 for electric and gas, 288 of that just electric, upon ringing them up we were told it's because all our previous bills were estimated and we should have been giving monthly meter readings (of which we were NEVER told) and that we have to pay that plus any future bills (set up a dd for a minimum of 150 a month)
  6. Strictly, speaking this is not a subject that would normally feature on the 'bailiff discussion' section of the forum. However, with the subject matter regularly featuring on the popular TV series; Can't Pay We'll Take it Away' it may well assist some viewers. Anyone watching the TV series would have seen the many instances of a tenant is being evicted. Routinely, the tenants had been advised by their local authorities that in order to gain assistance with emergency housing, that they must remain in the property until the actual eviction. It would seem that this practice must stop.
  7. I received an unexpected later from my insurance telling me I should pay £525.23 (after my policy had been cancelled). I rang them up to ask what this figure was for, being told that my claim I had put before was because I was at fault. ??!! I had not been made aware of this before, neither is this in the handbook policy. Please help!!!! I thought insurance is there so it covers you up in case of an accident, whether your fault or not!! I am with only young drivers. thank you.
  8. Is it illegal to tell jokes if someone is offended by the topic..
  9. Are they kidding me? Any advice would be really appreciated. I had a payday loan with this lot a few years back. They never made any checks on me, and lent it totally irresponsibly . I ended up on benefits, and agreed a payment plan with them. They then on the day my benefits were paid, they took the entire amount from me, leaving me with nothing to live on for a month, including disgusting amounts of charges. I was in tears, literally begging them/my bank lloyds for help, they told me tough luck we can do what we like (Literally said this) and the bank to
  10. I know i am, it's not just because it's about people claiming benefits, but all the inaccuracies contained within these programs, the one on channel 5 about benefit cheats, is the latest, a Liverpool lad , claiming what was described as sickness benefits ,for PTSD told the undercover reporter that he was getting a total of £1,500 per month ,inc DLA , I find that very hard to believe, which makes me think of those IDS and his sanctions work leaflets that were based on lies , Also are those that are cheating the system really that dumb that they will boast to someone they hardly know abou

  12. Hi, Been living in Canada for 2 years and had a seizure 14months ago. I did not send my UK license back as I wasn't driving and didn't have a car. My license is up for renewal and I need to complete a medical form. I am worried I will be fined £1000. What will happen?
  13. My mum has been in her Private Rented house for 13 years. Her landlord is a local company who has several managers covering different areas. The house is in a dire state and needs lots of work. The toilet in the bathroom is leaking (been reported but nothing done), the leaking toilet has caused some of the ceiling to fall down in the kitchen and the rest is sagging, the bathroom floorboards are rotten, the downstairs toilet doesn't flush, the back door is difficult to open and close (made of wood), most of the window frames (wooden) are completely rotten and my mum can't open several of
  14. I've been renting my home for 6 years. Over the past months I've accrued rent arrears for the first time ever due to serious illness. The arrears are at 12 weeks. The landlord has served a Section 8 notice giving the grounds of 2 months or more arrears. I've now received a Possession Order claim form from the court giving me a hearing date. On the same date of the hearing I've got an appointment with a Consultant at the hospital which i had to wait 7 months on the waiting list to get. If I go to the hearing I will have to miss my hospital appointment and wait another 7 months or so t
  15. no one believes a word he says because he can't help but mislead is there anything this man hasn't been truthful about?! he can rant and and rave all he likes but at the end of the day no one is having any of it..he's just one big fake end off! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2291288/Welfare-minister-rages-bishops-Theres-moral-trapping-people-benefits-says-Iain-Duncan-Smith.html
  16. Hi, I'll try to keep this as brief as possible. I'm writing this on behalf of my father in law. He was hit by a taxi whilst stationary at some traffic lights at the end of April. There is a really distinguished mark in the back in the shape of a grill at the front of black cabs. They've been messing him around, no offer has been made formally but he managed to get them to informally mention £2100 during a phonecall but readilly admitted that they couldn't find a match in the Auto Trader and the car is worth at least £3000. He's found his own car in a spares and repair yard in to
  17. Hi I'm looking for some help regarding my gas/electric with British Gas. Due to my husband being off sick for over year I now have a £740 bill for my gas and £350 for my electric both of which need paying now or they will install a pre-payment meter and charge me upto £200 to install each meter. They have said if I agree to a meter then they won't charge me and they will only take £6 per week per debt. I have always been under the impression that you are charged more on a pre-payment meter but British Gas have said I will not pay any more than the tariff I am on at the mome
  18. I have been paying cabot for years, and eventually I asked them for proof of everything. I have now recieved a letter telling me they cannot provide me any information and the debt is unenforceable. So far I have paid cabot £500 out of a total £800 debt, I was thinking rather than just not pay them, can I offer them a small payment in full and final settlement of the debt, so that it doesn't get sold on and on and on and on? Would they accept that just to get rid of me? And how much should I offer?
