  1. BBC1 Watchdog 29th October 7.30pm - available on BBC iPlayer https://youtu.be/ABjYCjxsW9g Xercise4Less were exposed for failing to process several customers' cancellations, leading to contact from Harlands and then CRS. Hmmm, now where have I seen that before ?? The funny thing is that X4Less have actually been behaving slightly better to their customers recently, when contacted directly. But it's Harlands that really need to be brought to account for the appalling harassment of their victims. Time to crank up our efforts to involve the CMA and Trading Standards.
  2. Directors of the City regulator will hold crunch talks later about the imposition of a deadline which would draw a line under the £25bn payment protection insurance mis-selling scandal. Sky News has learnt that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will discuss the merits of a so-called time-bar exercise as part of a scheduled board meeting. The board meeting will come ‎four months after the watchdog raised the spectre of a fresh deluge of compensation claims as a consequence of a landmark legal ruling at the Supreme Court last year. Bank executives have warned that the implications of a case brought by Susan Plevin - which centred on a company's failure to disclose to her a large commission payment on her PPI policy - could be catastrophic for the industry. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/watchdog-crunch-talks-25bn-ppi-cut-off-213150769--finance.html#6cfwso4

  6. Hey guys, Just wanted to know if this was possible? Have a dispute with the retailer, and the Ombudsman is delaying and delaying with giving its response - I've got to the point where I'm happy just to go to court. Thank you
  7. Just watched Watchdog on BBC1 and they have said that they will be investigating Private Parking Tickets next week. Should be fun.

  9. Returns on May 14th. The team look at a major car manufacturer's claims regarding the safety testing of its vehicles. Plus, the high street sports retailer not playing fair with their pricing policy, and the chemical ingredient in household paint that is being linked to an allergy epidemic.

  12. Wonga on the box tonight defending their stance on fraud management/prevention after reporting suggested that 350 people had their accounts raided despite not having any dealings with Wonga. Maybe if they received enough e-mails, the Beeb might consider a follow up on their general incompetence? http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/22357839

  17. There is a very good article about it on the BBC Watchdog website. Travelodge: Smoking or non-smoking? Travelodge is the fastest growing budget hotel chain in the UK. Seven million rooms were sold last year alone and some for as low as £19 a night. But whilst your bill may be low during your stay, afterwards you may be sent a demand for seven times that amount as a punishment for something you haven’t done. Along with restaurants and other public places, hotels have restricted the places on their premises that people can smoke. Light up and you can be fined up to £200 if convicted, plus damages if the company is granted them in court. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006...avelodge-fines
