    • Thanks for helping with the post;   Still waiting for a reply from the DPD.
    • I thank the Consumer Action Group Members for getting me this far in my case which is still in progress.   Situation: The Court has reversed earlier permission for me to rely on witness summaries.    The question upon which I am seeking help, please,  is - do I need to bother myself as to why the Court has reversed permission to rely on witness summaries?  If so, what line of logic or law can might I follow because clearly, the Court has said one thing and then another a few weeks later, of its own motion, the Court has reversed the earlier decision. I find this development quite extraordinary in the sense that as a result of being granted permission earlier, I served the three Witness Summons which had the Court stamp.   Background Having given me permission to serve 'Witness Summons' which I served on 3 hostile witnesses several weeks ago, the Court has now reversed it's earlier decision, and refused me permission to rely on 'witness summaries' pursuant to paragraph 32.9(2), citing that I have not shown steps taken to obtain witness statements from the 3 hostile witnesses.  I however, made two attempts to talk to the hostile witnesses who have been non responsive and I can evidence this.   I would be immensely grateful for some steer from Forum Members, please.
    • Pubs all seem to be doing a roaring trade around here. It does make me feel uncomfortable but At least they are finally making some money. Our area, the South West never really got hit badly by the pandemic. Wiltshire has regularly seeing zero confirmed cases and deaths. So we will have to see how opening pubs really pans out!     
    • Thanks for filling in the forum sticky and well done on reading up.  The more info. we all take in, the more we know what the real legal position is and how to fight sharks like CEL.   As you'll have seen, CEL are one of the most dishonest and greediest of the PPCs.  If you had indisputable proof that your car was on Mars at the time, they'd find a way to reject your appeal!  Sadly POPLA has become more & more useless, as your experience shows.  Instead of managing the car park in a professional manner, it's highly likely that CEL don't illuminate the signs at night deliberately in order to catch out motorists like yourself.   The good news is that the only person who can make you pay this "debt" is a judge, after a court case.  So from now on ignore any begging letters from CEL and/or their rent-a-threat DCAs, but do not ignore a Letter Before Action/Claim which is a formal notice of intention to start court proceedings.  However, don't waste your time while ignoring them, build a case.  Like dx says, look up the planning permission.  If the KFC is local to you, go back in the evening and get pix of their pathetic signage.  Please post up what you wrote in your appeal too.   As a belt & braces approach, get on to KFC and demand they cancel the ticket.  Show all the proof you were a genuine customer and point out that you stayed an extra 19 minutes because you were consuming more food & drink!  However, what we often find is that the bod who runs the local branch often doesn't have much power, so don't faff around.  If the local branch don't cancel within 48 hours get on to to the area manager, and if you get no joy there in 48 hours go to CEO level.   It's highly likely that if you had complained to KFC straight away and ignored CEL's kangaroo court procedure that the matter would have been resolved there & then, but hey, what is done is done and you still have a great chance of seeing off these fleecers.
    • if you are twisting sideways to takaway pubs? rather than opening pubs as you initially referred   ... thats always been cheaper at off licences and supermarkets isn't it, and rather defeats the point of pubs, and restaurants?   WHAT are you actually saying/claiming/suggestion if anything?

    • 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 was wondering if it would be worth my husband and I applying for a hardship case on our charges?

 

Like everyone else our charges claim is on hold.

 

My husband lost his job at xmas and has never managed to find any work since. I am a full time housewife (we have 3 little kiddies). At this moment in time we are not in Rent arrears but thats because we have had a college bursary coming in every month which has just covered the rent and we have used our tax credits to pay for food, gas, elec ect.

 

My husbands college course has now ended so our only income now is our tax credits. I dont have a clue how the rent (£500) will be getting paid at the end of this month.

 

We have sold everything we can think of in order to pay for previous months bills. Our car has been reposessed and our gas and elec has now been put onto pre payment meters as we couldnt pay the bills. We are in massive council tax arrears to which we are supposed to be paying £30 a week on but we cant afford it.

 

Our bank charges claim was for £2414.72 (not including the interest). With that money we could pay our rent, sort out our council tax and buy a cheap car to make finding work a bit easier. It would also be nice to have some money for my kids b'days and xmas. My youngest turned 1 in April just past and I felt awful, he barely had any presents and we couldnt afford to take him anywhere to have some fun for the day. My eldest will be turning 7 this Sept and like every other girl her age she wants a party! I cant work out how am buying her a b'day cake let alone any presents or a party!

 

Any advice would be great, thanks guys:)

It does tick a number of boxes for me, but you need to start the process. If you haven't written to HBOS then write and include the spreadsheet for hardship from CAG(an income and expenditure form) or the common financial statement, link is here: Money Advice Trust - The CFS budget forms and preparing a financial statement

 

Ask them to treat your case as hardship. Explain the circumstances in which your income dropped and the effect that the charges had on both your budget and on income to pay the priority debts.

I think the charges sound a little low for my liking. Have you gone back to July 2001?

Hi yourbank thanks for getting back to me. The account was only opened in 2003 so all charges being claimed are going back to that date.

 

I will have a look over your links just now. I need to go to the post office tomoz to send a letter off about my car being reposessed with no court order so I would quite like to get a letter off to the bank at the same time.

Scott.

you count 8 weeks from receipt by them of letter 1 just to clarify(however that is specifically if you are looking at the FOS route).

It's standard timescales on complaint handling. If it goes through the FOS it is a further 12 weeks providing all documentation is sent and no further requests are made to you.
