    • Hello all,  During the pandemic, we all have a duty to help one another, but i feel that the current Price gouging policy of all the main public sellers such as ebay and amazon to name the biggest are actually keeping the ppe prices artificially high. and i tell you why.   pressure from bodies such as which and the trading standards in the early days to cut the price gouging listings on these platforms, has back fired!! This has now lead to a select club! being the Approved traders, as the only listings allowed to list certain ppe items, this has created a club that with ebays trending structure is keeping the prices high,   i have been at logger heads with ebay about this, they are using this policy to rip off the public, after all they take a percentage commission on every item sold.    If i try to list an item of ppe much lower that the approved traders club, my listing is rejected, and the reason given is price gouging!!!, what a joke as my listing is half the price of the approved traders and ebay know this.   they are worried that this will get out, as the conversations with the concierge service they tell me they are constantly reviewing their policy!!!. Which needs to put pressure on these companies to change the policy to create a fairer result for the public.      
    • You might want to check your contract notice as you’ll need to be given that or given legal notice under 2 years (1 week), usually instant is for gross misconduct which this doesn’t appear to be. Again need to check contract but minimum 1 week I believe legally.   I agree they should have better processes in place but they’ve terminated you for unsatisfactory performance they can do that.   It sucks but it’s not unfair, I can see a discriminatory reason posted either so I think best bet will be to look for something new.    Most likely they need to lose heads & knowing they will have to pay contributions in August chose to lose you as you have been there less than 2 years and have very little rights as a result.
    • Just to update on this, received the anticipated reply from Packlink. Still chasing hermes every week.    
    • So I gather that you sent some parcels using DPD. They arrived in an apparently damaged state so that the items can't be used. The items were returned to you and you had to refund your customer. You are now out of pocket to the tune of the entire value of the items or at least the cost of repairs. You used DPD on some kind of account/credit system so that in principle you owe the money – but you are withholding the money because they didn't carry out their contractual obligations correctly and also they caused you loss. They are now threatening to sue you and they have sent you a letter of claim. I understand that you didn't take any photographs of the damaged parcels or of the items – on the basis that you weren't informed that that would be necessary. I understand also that you have had phone calls with them – but you probably have never recorded the courts so you have no evidence of what has been said. Is this all correct? You haven't told us what the items are and whether they are still in your possession. You haven't told us whether the damage to the items makes them a total loss or if they can be repaired. You haven't told us anything about values of the items or of the cost of repairs. We need this information. Also, I hope that you won't mind too much when I say that your failure to take photographs on the basis that nobody had told you to do it – shows a certain level of naïveté and your lack of evidence may become a problem if they do issue proceedings and you have to defend yourself. I suggest that it is axiomatic of any kind of dispute of this nature that you would start acquiring and storing evidence from the outset – and photographs are certainly going to be the minimum kind of evidence that you would require. You also haven't told us the value of the invoice sum which you are withholding. Although your post is pretty long, it seems to be pretty scant on some of the essential information. If you could please respond to these questions and then we will try to give you advice as to your position and the next step.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Just write back and say that any communication they wish to have with you will have to be in writing.

 

Just had another call from welcome h/o

 

Can anyone point me in the direction of a letter template for this?

Just received the SAR.

I don't appear to have everything that I should have. Got the car in 2006 but all the paperwork appears to have been from Sept 2007 onwards. From what I can make out they appear to have re written the loan, around the time we asked for our monthly payments to be lowered. We were asked to go in to their office to sign and say we would pay lower payments, which we did, but did not know that the loan was being rewritten.

They have sent a credit agreement which I will try and post up but the writing and figures on it are so small that I can't see what they say.

On this agreement it says that we requested lower payments due to me being on maternity leave. No idea where they got that from!!

 

They have also sent a transcript of telephone calls which appear to belong to another customer.

 

Any ideas where I can go from here?

Yes, Buchanan Street is where they send them to for collections I think.

Mines is with them atm.

 

Sara, they did not include my original agreement either, and I am challenging them about that at the moment, so I don't know what you can do about that at the moment.

 

It's hard to see the info on your agreement. Does it state if your Acceptance Fee has been included as credit and therefore accruing interest?

Thanks Sol. To be honest, I can hardly see the figures on the agreement so it is very difficult to tell. I think I will send another letter asking them to provide the original agreement and to send the information in a legible form.

 

I am pretty sure that they have breached the Data Protection Act by sending me another customers transcripts which included names, address and phone number.

Hi everyone. There's been an interesting development with this now and I wonder if anyone has ever heard of anything like this happening.

 

We are still waiting for welcome to send the complete SAR from the start of the agreement and in the meantime the same person keeps phoning and writing asking for us to phone her so she can discuss our complaints. We have written to them again saying that everything must be in writing and that we will contact them once we have all the information we need from them.

 

Anyway in the meantime we have been keeping our eye on our credit file. Before the SAR request the credit file entry for welcome stood at approx £10000 owing which is backed up by the statement we recently received from them. Got an alert today that there had been a significant balance change so had a look and welcome have updated to say that the balance owing is now around £7000. No payments have been made while the account is in dispute so where has this 3K reduction come from???:confused:

 

Any thoughts on why this has happened, anyone ever heard of this before?

 

Again, all help is much appreciated:)

That's what I thought too. I will wait for the latest statement and see what that says the balance is but the reduction would suit me nicely since it would allow me to VT the car without me owing too much.;-)

What the heck's happening?

 

Might it go back up just as easily?

Hi Kittie

Don't know what is happening but a lot of Welcome clients seem to have had their balance reduced with no explanation. I am waiting on my SAR now, on the second request, so waiting to see what that says before deciding on what course of action to take.

Looking for some more advice please. Someone for Welcome has phoned my partner at work today chasing payment for this account, which is officially in dispute. We are also still waiting for them to send the SAR. They wrote asking for us to call them as we didn't respond to their letters or voicemail asking for us to phone to discuss our complaint. We sent them letters telling them that everything must be in writing and have sent off 2 telephone harrassment letters which they are clearly ignoring.

 

This guy has basically been on the phone demanding payment and we said they cannot request payment while the account is in dispute. He said that Welcome have resolved our complaint and that we are just avoiding payment which is utter nonsense. They don't even know what the complaint is yet as we haven't had the proper info sent back to us!!!

He also threatened to turn up at my partners workplace today and has said he will be at our home at 6.30pm this evening.

 

So what do I do?
