    • Ok thanks guys for all the help & advice I think I will go the DRO option but will open a new bank account somewhere else first etc.  The only other things im little worried about is reading on the DRO it says about I wont be able to apply for credit but what about things like my car insurance as thats classed as credit paying it monthly Plus they say i must not have assets or car worth over £1,000 so what about things like my car worth around 2.5k and as said before when my father passed away he left me his camper that I cant part with its worth about 4k and what about things in house and jewellery etc ?? Can they come to house and check and so on
    • threads merged  please keep to one thread per issue.   dx  
    • read it proprly.. it doesn't say WILL anything and original creditors don't do court as they don't want the judge delving into their business model nor the bad publicity.   as for the FOS you just have to let it run. yours is a very short time since yo put it into them typically it always takes 6-9mts normally before they move on anything though they usually send you an ACK they have the complaint.        
    • Since the last post on this thread I have sent a complaint to the FOS but have not heard anything from them as yet either, I'm guessing they're rather snowed under and on reduced staff so no real surprise.   Still had nothing approaching help from lending stream but today they emailed me default notices for the loans, again demanding I phone them and pay up in full or they will begin court proceedings.   Any advice as to how I should proceed please?
    • Hi,   I received two PCNs in October 2019 from Havering Council. All the below applies to both PCNs, as the correspondences were at the same time:   Fast forward to February 2020, I file witness statements on grounds that I made representations within 28 days but did not receive a rejection notice.   The TEC cancelled charges.   Havering write to me asking for supporting evidence of representations that I made.   I email them screenshots with timestamps of the representations.   In early March Havering reply to me by email 'confirming receipt of email and both cases are now on hold pending an investigation. Please allow time for a full response to be sent.'   Fast forward to 18th June Havering write to me the attached:  Havering Charge Certificate.pdf   Now, it seems as though the sender of this letter is not up to date with both cases and is unaware of the TEC's decisions, as well as the email correspondence.   My questions are, 1) What should I do next? and 2) Is there a way to use their misstep to avoid paying for the PCN entirely?   Thank you.

    • 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

Not strictly a 'debt' problem but I have just received 'an offer I can't refuse' from T Mobile - they are changing my Contract to 3G!! - NOT

 

So just thought I would pre-warn anyone - No Way do I want any dealings with 3G!

I love it when they say we are changing your contract whether you like it or not, the sheer arrogance of these companies

Totally confused now - had to speak to manager (T mobile) at end of call and he said I would get a 'verification' call. This was for yet another company acting on behalf of both T Mobile and 3G saying that they wanted me to confirm that I want 3G to cancel my T Mobile contract and go onto 3G 'Just Like Home'

 

Now I am totally confused, befuddled and out of my depth!!

 

The only thing I did totally agree to was that I had the 14 days cooling off period!!. Not sure when that starts, but I am going to take it that it starts today (which is the earliest it can be).

 

Oh my poor head :confused::confused:

Hi Cerb

 

Don't think thats' it - I am being offered a N.6500 Nokia on a 3G Contract and closing my T Mobile Account - T Mobile say it is because they have sold their aerials to 3G because of the credit crunch!!

hmm, really?

 

Is your contracts due to expire in the next 6 months? they could be upgrading you to some new contract that they have with 3G.

 

What you think?

3G is not the same thing as the Three network.

 

3G is the third Generation of mobile telephony standards (This is a good thing)

 

Three are the mobile equivalent of AOL - they are sh*te and you are never truly rid of them.

 

They are the phone company who keep taking payments after you've cancelled the contract - instruct Blind Three Legged Horses to collect their debts for them and generally p*ss people off. (This is not a good thing)

 

No axe to grind here m'lud :D


Hope this helps

3G is not three_logo_black.gif

 

 

3G is the type of phone that they want to upgrade you to, You will still be on TMobile, just with a new 3G enabled phone

 

They are basically saying that you are entitled to a new phone and the new one will be a bonny, shiney new 3G enabled phone


Hope this helps

Ive heard of Mobiles Direct.

 

I gather you did not onstruct them to contact you? Nor were you advised of who they actually were.

 

Sound like they tried to misrepresent themselves to sell you a contract?

Yes, they definitely told me that they were T Mobile several times and were very elaborate with their 'story' of their takeover!!

 

I have now spoken to T Mobile twice and they are not at all worried by this company stating they were them!! aparently, it is allowed!!!

 

I am going to complain to OFT, ICO and Trading Standards on this one, whatever next!

You're almost correct. T-Mobile and 3 are working in partnership to form a new company called MBNL which means that the base stations currently owned by 3 will be upgraded so that the antennas can carry the same frequency as T-Mobile, and vicer verser. The first stage of network consolidation is complete and the network plan for various regions are being finalised.

 

Vodafone and Orange have also signed an agreement to Rand share as well, O2 on the other hand will not permit a third party to share their network spectrum or use multi tilt, multi operator antennas or their sites.

 

Until March of this year I worked for the largest owner of Telecom sites in the UK and breathed MBNL for 3 years, after working in the industry for 10 years I'm pleased that I am out of it.

Update on this:

 

I cancelled the verbal contract with Mobiles Direct in writing that same day, by Recorded Delivery. Interlink Express tried to delivery the new mobile on 1st July, I was not in to take delivery and a card was left to say that if they did not hear from me within 5 days the packet would be returned to sender. So, silly me thought that was the end of it.

 

I have now had 2 bills from 3 whom I have written too with copies of my cancellation letter to Mobiles Direct and a copy of the note left by Interlink. I also e-mailed 3 a copy of the said letter. That was the beginning of this week - no response as yet.

 

However, today I received a letter from 3 saying they have had to restrict my mobile due to non payment of account, and also a letter from Advanced Telecoms Debt Collection Services with the usual threats.

 

Now, earlier on this year I had dealing with ADT in respect of my daughter who was being threatened by them. I complained to OFT and TS who both informed me that this shower were unlicenced and that they would be investigating and would let me know - nothing on that yet.

 

So, what is my next move with regard to this mobiles direct mess? Any help would be appreciated. My Credit File is getting to look ok now and I don't want this lot messing it up again.
