  1. Just over two months ago my wife and I got back from holiday to discover our kitchen was flooded as the result of a burst pipe situated behind the plasterboard located in the area of the sink unit. I notified the insurer, Esure, who promptly sent out a company called Building Validation Solutions (BVS) to assess my claim. The guy from BVS acknowledged the claim and agreed we were entitled to a settlement. During the site visit I was told that he would draw up a scope of works and then authorise a cheque by way of settlement, and that he'd phone through the amount of the payment that eveni
  2. Hi All I've been a silent reader of this excellent forum for some time now, but as of now I need a little help/friendly advice. I had an old stlye SLC loan (pre-97) which I'd deferred for many, many years, moving address along the way. Hadn't heard anything for years, then some Erudio letters arrived via an old address, which I ignored (not always the best course of action), and recently I've also received letters from Capquest who I gather are one and the same. Alongside this, I've had calls/texts and have been harassed extensively. Occasionally, I've tried to engage in co
  3. New students are being alerted to a [problem] where fraudsters claim to offer a "educational grant" in a bid to con them into divulging bank details. The emails typically claim to be from the university's finance department and trick the recipient into clicking on a link to an online form and entering their personal and banking details. The Student Loans Company said students were particularly vulnerable to "phishing" attempts around the main payment dates, in September, January and April. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-37408373
  4. Don't say you weren't warned. This is actually a bit spooky! http://simply-wrong.com/dont-say-we-werent-warned/
  5. One of the site team has received an email from their Neighbourhood Watch scheme regarding the following:- https://www.gov.uk/government/news/motorists-warned-about-driving-licence-reminders-received-by-text-or-email So please do be aware of this.
  6. Have you seen the Adverts? Have you read the small print? There just a front for Loans 2 Go, they only recommend loans for 2 companies Loans 2 Go and Log Book Loans both companies are owned by the same company. Seems anyone can set themselves up as a broker, there website(S) yes there are several all point to these 2 companies I am sure they could be done for false advertising saying they will find the best loan for you when they only recommend these 2 companies. Dont be fooled, stay clear
  7. Bailiffs are charging excessive fees and not explaining their charges to debtors when acting for councils, the Local Government Ombudsman (LGO) has warned. In a report issued today the LGO has warned councils they have to take responsibility for their bailiffs’ actions, and ensure complaints are handled properly. The LGO has not named individual councils or bailiff firms in today’s report but a spokesperson referred to individual cases it has previously publicised, including Blaby District Councll and Slough Borough Council, as examples of a recurring trend which prompted the report. Toda
  8. Women are being urged to check their car insurance ahead of a new rule coming into force next month which will ban firms from taking gender into account. It means female drivers will see their premiums go up by as much as 25% after 21 December. Some insurers say it might even be cheaper to cancel a policy and sign a new deal before the changes come in. More ... It was obvious they would up the womens policy and not lower the mens. This is twice now the government has forced extra profit on insurance companies and forced us to pay more. First was the con of the 'cont

  10. Wonga, the short-term money lender, has been censured by the Office of Fair Trading for “aggressive and misleading” debt collection practices. The controversial web-based lender, which offers so called payday loans charged at interest rates of more than 4,000pc, has been criticised for accusing defaulting customers of committing fraud and threatening that they would be reported to the police. The OFT said Wonga had acted “without appropriate justification” in making the threats in calls, letters and emails to customers. It has been told it could face fines of up to £50,000 if it repeats
