  1. Earlier today I was trying on clothes in Primark when for some reason I decided I would try and steal one of the six items I was going to buy . I was wearing Primark trousers anyway, I thought I could get away with just swapping my old Primark trousers with a new pair I wanted while in the changing rooms. The trousers I wanted only cost 5 pounds, and I am not skint, so I have no idea why I thought this was a good idea. as I was leaving the changing rooms and they came to check the number of clothes on hangers was the same number I came in with, they somehow realised that th
  2. Hi, was caught shoplifting in boots, picked up 4 items nearlly worth £700 (as per Boots). security staff took all my details, called police, and i had to wait until police turn up, but nobody came. security staff called police 4 times, they were given a log no. but were getting told that no police officers are free at the moment to attend. after 4 hours of waiting, i was let go, as the store had been closed and they waited over an hour for police even after the store was closed. i was escorted out , i was given banned notice and RLP recovery letter.
  3. So much negativity recently so how about this, if you were in charge of our Country what would you change. Chose up to 6 things 1) I would abolish the Government 2) I would have a smoke free UK ( if only ) 3) Stop this stupid inflated wage thing, specially over paid footballers, no one should have a price on their head 4) At least £10 a hour plus for all, stop the £500+ wages, all equal 5) Help GOSH and The Lullaby Trust and any other charity not getting Government help 6) ban dummies. baby carriers, cot bumpers, and front facing car seats ( until big enou
  4. Posting on behalf of a friend, who is employed by a cleaning company. The facts: - She's been working for the company for 5+ years as a cleaner for a certain client for GBP 6.50/hr for 2 hrs/day (10hrs/week) and her husband was also employed there for the same wage for 3 hrs/day (15 hrs/week). - There is no written contract and she and her husband have never received anything from the employer except salary payments into their accounts. - Ever since she's been working there she was told by her supervisor that as long as the offices are cleaned properly it doesn't matter how many hours
  5. Hi All, I am trying to get any information possible on the removal of Settled Accounts that were in good standing from the main credit agencies. I used a well known payday loan company back in 2013 and rolled over the loan a few times and always paid early and in full. Never late and no negative info at all. However fast forward 3 years , I am trying to secure a mortgage and have been refused due to having 6 entries from a specific payday loan lender. Even though they are all settled and paid and closed they underwriters see that as there were 6 entries, that I am a risk !! I
  6. As any sensible person will know, the Freeman movement are stating that using WeRe cheques are legal tender. Errm! Nope The Financial Conduct Authority have taken an interest in this and have published a statement. http://www.fca.org.uk/news/consumer-notice-were-bank If that doesn't convince you to stay away, you had better start investing in tinfoil hats

  8. I have been thinking for quite awhile that the Banks were not really properly fixed after the 07/08 crash. What happened was that the Banks sold off some of their rubbish debts and some assets, as well as money injected via the bailout and QE. There has also been some tightening of regulatory rules. But I am not convinced that the Banks have actually recovered that much, as the last round of end of year results were not that good. The Banks are still carrying many assets which are probably not as they are valued at. Look at the adverts on TV for loans with interest rates anywhere
  9. After 6 years my Bankruptcy has finally been removed from my credit file. A default for one of the loans included also gone. However I have an old RBS bank account and loan account that for some reason weren't defaulted but were included in the BR that are still showing on my Equifax credit report as partially settled. I would like to get these removed. What are the chances?
  10. Hi, Back in January 2011 I was convicted of a minor offense and was given a bill of £500 by the courts. At the time I was unemployed and was receiving Job Seekers Allowance. I remember speaking with somebody over the telephone who was employed at the court payment office who agreed to deduct £100 every month from the JSA payments to cover the costs to which I agreed and thought no more of it. 5 months later (in May) I was offered a fairly decent paying job abroad for which I accepted. I proceeded to sign out of the tenancy with my landlord, however some complications a

  13. Last May my husband purchased a car from a Toyota dealer. Fast forwward to today and we decided to purchase another car from the same dealer but using our car as part ex. We have ripped the house apart searching for the V5 but couldn't find it. My husband of couse blamed me as I usually put things in safe places but can never remember where. We called the DVLA to see about requesting a new V5 only to be told the car isn't and has never been registered to us and is still registered to the dealer. Now I'm sure we received the V5 but it would appear not (bearing in mind we ha
  14. I sued Capital One in 2009 for credit card charges, they sent a cheque before the hearing, but they deducted £352.86 of this from the settlement cheque to pay Cabot whom they had sold the debt to. I now understand that they should not have done this under the offsetting rules, I have successfully claimed from Monument before over this, shall I be writing to the DCA for the money of Cap 1? I have just looked through the correspondence from the time and I have accepted the cheque as full and final settlement for paying the money to cabot. Also, they sent a letter to th
