  1. The following press report features on SCOOP. Anyone viewing YouTube videos regarding bailiff enforcement, will be familiar with the name of Chrisy Morris (he previously used to call himself Chrissy Morris). Chris Morris features very prominently on many of the FMoTL F/B groups where he is very know know for 'baiting' bailiffs. He will telephone enforcement agents, enforcement companies, court staff etc and upload the conversations onto YouTube. As the article states, he is to face a 2 days trial for obstructing a Enforcement Agent when enforcing a High Court writ.
  2. Hi, I am currently representing my daughter on the McKenzie friend basis in her claim for unfair dismissal on the grounds of discrimination ( pregancy ) We have followed all the procedures through ACAS and we are currently taking her employer through the Employment Tribunal, which has taking about seven months to get to a Trial which has been listed for next week 4/5th February 2016, this was after a previous hearing. Today i receive a letter from the Tribunal stating that the trial might be postponed on the grounds that despite knowing for a number of months that in any event, the
  3. Hello good people I hope this is the right thread to post this query... I need assistance as to how to go about filing an appeal against the ET judgment i lost for ''unlawful dismissal''... ..This is an NHS matter ..the judge was bias. ..her written judgement even shows her helping the other side to clarify their case..

  4. Please help!!!! This is a long story so please bear with me. My sister hired a car last year to move home. She was on the hire agreement with my Dad as a free driver also. My Dad was caught by a speed camera while moving her stuff to her new house in the hire car. My sister put her current address on the hire agreement The address she was moving from NOT to as she stayed there until two days afterwards. She did not pay for mail forwarding but asked landlord to forward any mail. A NIP was sent a few days afterwards to old address as this was provided by Enter
  5. Under section 68.1 of Schedule 12 of the Tribunal Courts & Enforcement Act 2007 it is a very serious offence to obstruct a bailiff. Last week yet another debtor was found guilty of this offence but even more seriously, he was also found guilty of assaulting the bailiff (the bailiff required stitches to his nose). The debt was in relation to an unpaid penalty charge notice. Bailiffs attended the debtors property to request £422. It would seem that previous visits had also been made and on one of the visits, he had sworn at the bailiff before driving off. It was on the 4th visit
  6. I am really hoping someone can advise me here on the procedures for dealing with the following. I am the claimant and the respondent is disputing the majority of correspondence under S111 of Employment Rights Act. However, the Respondent does refer to this correspondence all the way through their particulars of response and is fundamental to my claim. I understand that S111 is not applicable in discrimination cases. My question is how do I go about getting this included in the trial bundle. I presume I make an application to the Judge to rule on this. I want the correspondence included a
  7. A report by Citizen Advice found that people were tempted into free trials for slimming pills or similar health supplements, often by online pop-up adverts or across social media sites featuring celebrity endorsements. People thought they were simply giving their debit or credit card details to pay for the £5 postage and packing. But, if they’d read the extremely long small print, they would have discovered that they had signed up to a monthly subscription for these products unless they cancelled within a set period of time. What can you do to about it? Always rea
  8. Hi, Please can you give me advice on my problem with Usenext? I tryed 14 days free trial then was trying to cancel but didnt managed to do it after exact 14 days, so done it 12 hours later. Now they demand 100 Euro for service i dont used during trial and dont have intention to use. despite they agrred with canceling my contract: Hello Tomas, We hereby confirm your revocation for the following services: -------------------------------------------------------------- UseNeXT Smart+ (28.12.2014 - 28.12.2015) -Thank you Tomas
  9. I don't consider myself to be stupid.. but I am not sure what I need to do with this. I received through the post a letter addressed to me, enclosing a card for Amazon Prime - 30 day free trial. I am a regular Amazon customer buying books for my Kindle - I have never indicated in anyway that I would like to take up this service and have never purchased/downloaded videos from them either. My question is, bearing in mind the above that I have never requested this, do I now have to go and cancel this trial or will they automatically bill me £79.00 ??
  10. Just stumbled on this story, has this been posted on here already? and is it actually being implemented yet ? would appear that this government will stop at nothing when it comes to causing pain and suffering to the poor and vulnerable http://www.welfareweekly.com/dwp-gets-tough-sickness-benefit-claimants/
  11. I signed up for the 14 day free trial which ends on 13th Oct 2014. I attempted to cancel the subscription, but could not get any further. When clicking on the "cancel subscription" link, I was taken to a page where I had to verify my email address by inputting the password. When I hit "Enter" NOTHING HAPPENS! This system will NOT let me cancel the subscription! So what next ?
  12. Hi there, I registered for a 30 day trial with eFax as I needed the ability to fax some PDF Documents to the HMRC. I had alot of trouble with the program and instead tried another online product which worked instantly. Consquently I dropped eFax an email stating my desire to cease the trial with immediate effect and close down the account (I was still on the 3rd day by this point) I had an email back from eFax which was a rather obnoxious marketing email with various offers, a very weak apology and the insistence that I phone them to cancel. Rather bemused by this I se
  13. I am a litigant in person and the Defendants Solicitors have served upon me three witness statements. Not a problem, but these were gained in a Criminal case brought against these individuals who were subsequently found guilty. I have several problems. Can a witness statement that was used in a Crimanal case (written on a "Statement of Witness form) be used against me in my civil claim ? All of them state 10 pages and the last page is missing. One of them has no signature at the end of the text ! ! ! (the note at the bottom of the form clearly states on every page that it "
  14. My wife recently joined a slimming help website called JustSlim. Initially they give you a 4 day trial where you can decide to continue with one of their various offers. The way the offers are perceived, by the way they are worded, makes it look like 1 month is £40 but take out a 12 month subscription and it is £15 per month and it has a little asterix explaining the saving based on a single month. It also offered a 30% discount code. My wife signed up, and applied the discount code which didn't work. She contacted them explaining this and asked then to just cancel the account. They repli
  15. I was helping someone with a speeding ticket . The original speeding offcence happenned in june 2013. They moved around end of july. Postal redirection was in place but for a good reason the first 2 nip did not arrive. When the third one arrived at the new address the person returned it. This one arrived end of spetember 2013. This one arrived via redirected post. The person filled it in with their own details but ticked the wrong box on it. He sent it back with the correct address on it. On the understanding when the nip is re issued at the correct
  16. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2532236/Outrage-hundreds-drink-drivers-named-shamed-Twitter-BEFORE-theyve-chance-fair-trial.html This appears to be causing quite a lot of controversy
  17. Hi all A friend of mine (Defendant) who has severe psychiatric and health problems recently had to attend court regarding a civil case. The Psychiatrist dealing with him was made aware that he was becoming severely distressed by the imminent court case and wrote a letter to the court requesting that the case be adjourned. My friend could not afford to be represented by a solicitor, but went along to court with a friend, not legally qualified, to offer him help and support. Unfortunately, whilst the Doctors letter was received by the court, and placed on the files, it was no
  18. I have fallen foul to this company, even people like myself who thoroughly look into things before they buy can get caught out by these shrewd websites. Even when you read the T&C's thinking that you know what you are doing, they sneak in and get your money and its too late to stop it from happening. These people dont believe in following their own terms and conditions. You can cancel this "programme" within 14 days (which I did), However on the 12th day they had already taken £180 plus from my bank account. It certainly wasnt a free trial. I order
  19. Hi, this is my first time on this site but I really need some help. So basically I've been claiming JSA since graduating university and during this time I had a paid internship at a company which lasted until April. I was offered a sales job and took it on the basis that I really wanted to get some additional skills done. I had to come off JSA because it was over 15 hours. This started as a trial period but both the employer and myself decided that I was unskilled and wasn't up for the job. The job lasted for about a week; and I was paid for that week. I went back on JSA and starte
  20. Like a lot of people have experienced the sharp end of Legalcare.co.uk free-trial, I too have been a victim of their dodgy website practices (very basically, I googled "free legal advice" and LegalCare came up, their website said 14-day free trial), which I trialled and didn't like, so I cancelled the only way I could see how DURING the free trial, by cancelling my paypal subscription. A lot of people, like me, found out that cancelling this way isn't accepted by Legalcare - Legalcare want you to cancel in a specific way (which they made very hidden and uneasy to work out how to do - henc
  21. Hi, My wife has been put in the work related group for ESA, however she is appealing and it is soon going to trial. She has cerebral palsy and as a result of the nervous system being damaged at birth also suffers from general anxiety disorder and nocturnal bruxism (severe night time teeth clenching) which gives her severe pain and vertigo. She was put on ill health retirement in Feb 2012 at 36 years of age. If placed in the support group we would be entitled to about £60 a week, which would be helpful for her private osteopath treatment (there is no physiotherapy treatment on the NHS f
  22. I just wanted to get an understanding if anything could be done about this.... I have a claim that I raised in dispute against a large company in Jan 2011. This went back and forth for exchange of letters on liability for a while. In the end they told me to jog on...so I issued a claim against them. It was defended and is set to go to court in December. This claim is for around £300 Two things happened, I had a telephone allocation hearing at which point the judge slightly chastised the solicitor for not engaging in mediation or trying to resolve the issue. Secondly the De
  23. I have recently ended a probationary trial period myself. I discussed the reason as to why with HR two weeks prior and stated that I did not approve of the office politics. After ending my trial period I handed in a Med 3 and self certification to cover myself. (two months). Do you think this will be the end of the issue or will the company make waves for me, as I am unsure of how much notice I should have given. Fortunatately I had not received a full contract of employment only a brief terms of contract in my offer of employment. I have no intention of making waves or ta
  24. Dear All Just to let you know that the trial of the 7 remaining directors (2 directors took voluntary disqualification) begins this coming Monday 21 May 2012.
