    • On the basis it was a direct debit from the bank. Why did you not use the DD guarantee and insist the bank refunds the money.     
    • Basically i can claim for my excess and loss of earnings as i was self employed and cost for hire of van, solicitors have asked for uninsured losses, if lossess are not included in claim i cant recover them at later date the letter states.  
    • Hi All,   On 26th May this year I called my broadband/phone service provider, Talk Talk, to inform them that I would be leaving them and moving to BT at the end of the month.  My contract with Talk Talk had officially ended back in October 2019 and I was just paying them on a monthly basis for continued service. I was advised that I did not need to do anything, as arrangements would be made on my behalf to keep my existing number etc between Talk Talk and BT.  I began my contract with BT on 1st June.  I cancelled my bank payment arrangements to Talk Talk and set up new ones for BT. I then received a bill from Talk Talk for June's monthly charges, which I ignored as I was no longer a customer, I owed them nothing, and they were not providing me with any kind of service. I then received a second bill from Talk Talk for July's monthly charges. I called Talk Talk to explain their error but they insisted that I was still a customer using their services.  This was despite me proving that I have been a BT customer for the past two months and paying BT for services that Talk Talk are claiming to be theirs. Talk Talk then took £60.39 from my bank account on 2nd August, despite having no authority or consent from me to do so.  I complained to my bank and they explained that utility companies hold on to customers payment details (despite GDPR) and this practice is common.  I have now instructed my bank to refuse any further payments to Talk Talk, by any means!. I phoned Talk Talk to complain and insist they repaid my money immediately as it had been obtained fraudulently and they are not providing any service to me anymore.  The adviser couldn't help much, but promised me a call from a manager later in the week.  The call never materialised. I called Talk Talk myself today, and after nearly four hours of phone calls, being put on hold, transferred, being made promises and making more calls, I have got nowhere. One manager did offer a token £30 payment which I obviously turned down.  I eventually hung up after being put on hold for over 20 minutes during a call lasting over an hour. These people are ignorant at best and impossible to deal with. Please could someone advise me on how to get my £60.39 back from these people?  
    • They can ask you to help them.   The reason for doing this is that the accident was between two private citizens with the Insurance companies covering the risk.  The Insurance company need your assistance to claim directly against the other driver, as the other drivers Insurance are not paying the claim.  Each Insurers pays 50% of the claim costs.     If you don't help the Insurers, I am not sure what they can do about this, as you are no longer a customer of theirs.   Perhaps ask whether they will cover your costs. e.g. time. 
    • no you refuse  they cant do that without your permission.   arent arguing over hire car costs are they?

    • 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

Hi,

 

I have just seen this on here & wonder if anyone can help. My dad had parked in a car park, while he was doing a course & because he couldn't get to the car park machine on time (he was late on his break) he was 1 minute over time & he got a parking ticket for it!!! Surly this isn't right, the person must of been standing there counting down the time & issued the ticket. If my dad apeals will he succeed & is there anything else he can do?

There is only one course of action open to you, if it was a private car-park......

 

IGNORE IT.

 

There is no such thing as an appeal with a PPC.

It is NOT a fine! It is an unenforcible invoice that has no legal status.

Don't respond to any of their letters. Eventually, they will get fed up and chase someone else who is more easily frightened.

 

Just a [problem]...... Ignore!

1000000000000% ignore it. It has as much merit in law as me now charging you £130 for this advise.

Just because it was on a meter doesn't mean it wasn't a private car park.

 

If it is a council ticket, the PCN will clearly show the council name at the top of the PCN. Please check it and confirm back which council it is.

Can you scan the ticket, front and back, and post it on this thread, so that we can advise you better?

Make sure that you remove anything that identifies you, first. Registration number, etc.

I can't see why an official PCN would ever state it was issued IN a borough council rather than BY a borough council so are you sure of that wording?

 

Would it be too cynical of me to think a PPC would issue a scamvoice, but put somewhere prominant on it the name of the council area they happen to be operating in? :eek:

Like i keep mentioning this is my DADs ticket. I have little info on who issued the ticket, until i actually get to see it myself. I know the ticket was issued IN the borough of Havering, so i assumed it would have been by a warden who worked for that particular borough. Trust me my dad can tell the difference between [problematic] & the real thing. As soon as i obtain the ticket i will scan it & upload so people can check it out.

 

Thanks
