  1. Hi All, Need a little advice as to where i stand and how to proceed. Myself and my partner moved into a new flat in July 2018 where the car park is managed by these clowns. We are one of about 10 who are fortunate enough to have a very big parking space where two cars can be parked back to back. We questioned this in the viewing and was told this was acceptable. The issues with countrywide parking started about a month after we moved in where we got a ticket on one of our cars for being parked incorrectly. This was appealed and of course, lost.
  2. Last week I placed an order via the Footlocker website for a limited edition item. While checking out they make it clear in the page that your item is being held for 10 minutes while you checkout and to check out quick so you don’t lose it. Earlier this week my order was cancelled. After eventually getting through to someone to speak to in their customer services I was told: ‘we cannot live track our stock so we cannot hold items during checkout’ and that the message during checkout was ‘essentially a lie customer services are aware of’. Is there anything I should do?
  3. One of my neighbours who's a very unwary link clicker but has been under my wing for several years now recently clicked one link on yahoo and another link via MSN homepage and answered some very basic questions asked. one I've traced to: http://thedailyreporter.co.uk/PFCADV-ADT21.php?tracker=adtopia&pixel=USC17AU&atp_source=Outbrain1A_TCG&atp_vendor=outbrain&atp_sub1=2_1&atp_sub2=v1-2050a297c9fab51aa7ce8a215ee0d817-009d7a702971cbe9636a5c80a957135980-&atp_sub3=009d7a702971cbe9636a5c80a957135980&atp_sub4=MSN%20UK%20(MSN%20Intl)&url_id=16795 these re
  4. Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but just been on the Universal Job match website and saw this : Universal Jobmatch will be replaced by the Find a job service on 14 May 2018. Important: If you have an existing Universal Jobmatch account it will not move to the new service. Save any information you want to keep, like your CV, cover letters and application history by 17 June 2018.
  5. Hi all, I'll soon be moving home into a new 3 bedroom place 4 miles away. Anyway, I want to get everything set up in advance so that I can look for the good deals. I've been having a look online and checking out what quotes I can get for gas & electricity, but the range seems to be pretty huge. If anyone has any good suggestions, let me know please! Cheers, OhhEnnEmm.
  6. Anyone signed up for the new job site that has been replaced Universal Job Match? I know UJM has had it's faults, but it was way better then Find a job, the new site is useless with jobs, it's terrible, why have this been brought out? Am I the only one who finds it rubbish?
  7. Greetings All. First post (hopefully of not too many, but think there may be a few in the pipe). If a Dealer's Website says: "Complaint Procedure" - Awaiting Content" of course there's nothing about any trade bodies or ADR channels. is this a breach of law and if so which legislation/ASA code etc? Is it worthy of an additional 'complaint' ? Thanks for your time.
  8. I bought a rug from modern rugs last week. It arrived yesterday and while the pattern is the same, the colour of the rug is different. I have looked at their returns policy and they say they will refund the money if we send the rug back within 2 weeks at our own expense. It is a 116 x 170 rug and will be expensive to send back and as they sent a product that was not as advertised I do not feel I should have to pay the return costs. Does anyone know what rights I may have buying something online that does not match the pictures in the online shop?
  9. I've just been viewing the Merseyflow website for the second bridge crossing that's just opened. The website can be found here: https://www.merseyflow.co.uk/faqs/penalties To quote them: "A PCN is a legal document, carries a fine of £40, and will be issued to the home address of the registered keeper... ...If the PCN remains unpaid beyond this 42-day period then the penalty will be registered as a civil debt and if unpaid after another 36 days, recovery action will begin." I'm just wondering whether the wording here is misleading and/or illegal. As far as I was aware, private
  10. Hello. Any advice appreciated please, I have a full paypal account which has been verified and never any issues in 15 years, its backed up with a bank classic account visa(TSB) with no overdraft facility part due to jan 2017 just completed a 3 yr trust deed form 5 completed currently awaiting form 6. Cut to the chase I offer no excuses but my mother taken turn for worse last week : i stupidly gambled online last week. I had gaming casino account for number of years betting mostly small amounts, I honestly cannot explain why or the right details but I suddenly star
  11. I recently purchased a Flight on Opodo The reason I booked with Opodo was because it gave certain assurances that I would be able to cancel my flight and receive a refund if I booked though them. My trip was subject to change so I was shopping around for a flexible airline (for september) The first statement although not misleadign itself, did make me feel more comfortable about the booking: "Free cancellation on most routes and airlines" - now I agree this doesnt say ALL route and airlines, but its already put my mind a little at rest and made me feel comfortable to continue fu
  12. Here's my GoTo website for anything which takes batteries and which is related to cycling, triathlon et cetera. Ray Maker is an American but he now lives in Paris with his American wife who runs an American cupcake/patisserie business in the centre of Paris - with their young child. A few years ago he started up a blog but being a triathlete – and mostly a cyclist, so far as I can gather, he started reviewing gadgets and he quickly got a reputation for telling it how it is – and in the world of rather over-effusive Internet reviews where almost everything eventually turns out to be p
  13. Be careful when Googling for Barclays. If you click on it, it looks, at first glance, like Barclays. But it is actually Barccays It's a sca mmers site, where you are asked to submit all your usual on-line banking details. Your account would be emptied before you were any the wiser. Always double check the address bar before entering any details
  14. Hi I'm new to forums. I dropped an air passenger off at Liverpool Airport's "Express Drop Off" zone, in a car park that I could not avoid as it was on the end of a No Stopping road. I was stopped for 30 seconds. When I went to the barrier to leave they demanded £2 and went on about a contract and a sign on the road which I had not seen and more .... after about 20 minutes I snapped the barrier by pushing it out of the way and went to leave in my car. The car park called the Police who asked very similar questions about a contract. Now I've investigated and
  15. Hi There Wonder if anyone can help please. We were on holiday with the family in Mallorka and whilst in Mallorka tried to book our flights back home to East Mids Airport. Towards the end of the holiday we decided to start looking for various flight options with different airlines and used ryanair, jet2 and thompson websites to compare flight times and prices. Thompson has shown available flight in the day on the 24/08/2014 and we decided to book it and stay a bit longer. Bare in mind we have tried booking Thompson on a few occasions for a couple of days however they
  16. Hi, I just had a Fixed Penalty Notice (fine) for dropping g a cigarette end on the floor and quite rightly so. So I'm not disputing the fine at all. When I came home looked on the Councils Website, it clearly states: I then logged in, attempted to pay and voila.. It asked for £80... I contacted the Council and asked to speak to the team which deals with this to get the correct amount put on (as I received the fine today) and was told that I wasn't able to speak to them. I explained about the website, they confirmed this; Her manager confirmed too that the site inde
  17. Hi everyone, I'm new here and after some advice. I was made redundant from my job last September through no fault of my own and been signing on ever since. However, before Christmas I had an appointment with my advisor at my local job centre and gave me details of a job to apply for but 2 weeks ago I received a letter saying that they are going to stop my job seekers allowance from the end of January to the middle of march. I have since appealed the decision in writing but when i went to the job centre today I had to fill in another form and explain again. I know it was my fault for
  18. The onwards and upwards march of the ad blocker continues http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-35460785 Once again, like most of you, I hate the intrusion of ads while I'm trying to use my computer or my telephone. On the face of it, these ad blockers should be welcomed by all consumers. However, the people who will really be laughing are the banks, retailers, debt collectors, payday lenders et cetera who will be pleased to see the Consumer Action Group struggle and have difficulty paying its bills so that its very existence is endangered. This forum like tens of thousands
  19. sorry if this is in wrong section, today Argos were selling on the site a dining table and chairs for £19.99. (was £215.59 £19.99) plus £8.95 deliver charge, seeing this bargain i have purchased it using my paypal account to pay. A friend also was trying to purchase this online but couldnt get through to her basket so called argos customer service line who told her "its a pricing mistake and will be taken off the site ASAP). checking my paypal account it tells me the payment is pending ...... This is a temporary authorisation to make sure your f
  20. Hello, Last September I paid for a one month premium membership of a music forum. It was a small amount $10 or £6.50. The forum was not much use to me so I did not renew or so I thought. Today I have discovered that this forum has continued to take payments out of my account for a futher 4 months. I am furious as I did not sanction these payments. When I bought the membership it said 1x1 Monthly Membership, nothing about renewals. When I contacted them to complain they basically said no refunds and that I could cancel if I wanted. Trying even to find where I could cancel took me about an
  21. I have had an ongoing claim with Jet2 for compensation following a fight delay in Feb 2011. There are six family members in the group, my wife and I, and four children under 16. I am the lead passenger and paid for the flights and the booking was made using my Jet2 account. It was a technical fault and they have been using the “unexpected circumstances” excuse since 2011, and most recently said they were waiting the outcome of their appeal to the Supreme Court which they said would affect the outcome of my claim. When the Supreme Court refused permission for them to appeal, I wrote again
  22. Police are investigating a "significant and sustained cyber-attack" on the TalkTalk website, the UK company says. The phone and broadband provider, which has over four million UK customers, said banking details and personal information could have been accessed. TalkTalk said potentially all customers could be affected but it was too early to know what data had been stolen. The Metropolitan Police said no-one had been arrested over Wednesday's attack but enquiries were ongoing. TalkTalk said in a statement that a criminal investigation had been launched on Thursday. It
  23. Hi, I hope you can help me. I posted a negative review on a website of a removal company. That company is now threatening me with defamation and false accusations unless I remove the review. I instructed the website to do this via email (I have no other means of contact) and copied in the removal company contact. It states, however, on the website that it can take up to 7 business days to remove the review and, after 6 business days, the review is still there. Note I am not able to remove or edit the review myself. I explained to the removal company that I cannot remove the review and t
  24. Hi, just wanted some advice regarding a would-have-been purchase for me. I saw a listing on a national building centers website ( a section for trade members specifically ) for a deal on an in-store collection item which had a ladder for sale at £24.00 inc VAT however the ladder you would actually be given at the till is not the ladder that they list the specifications for online. as this would result in me making a trip to the store ( a 35 min drive ) to find out that the online page was not correct, where would I stand? I do hope this makes sense. Many thank
  25. Hello friends, My pension fund administrator took a long time due to their system being dis-functional (over thirty days, when it should have been just two days) to register my account and make status of my pension fund available on-line. My pension fund pot is around £25000.00. I really had to continuously call and chase them to fix my problem. Is there any legislation that entitles me to compensation for keeping me deprived of being able to view my pension fund on-line? Thanks
