    • Notice Before Action Dear Sir/madam You have lost the following items. 1)      P2G72688861 2)      P2G73791631 3)      P2G74330511 I understand you eventually accepted liability for these lost items and have agreed to reimburse the postage costs but not the values. You suggest this is due to my failing to take out additional insurance.   I am not prepared to accept your position and shall be issuing a summons on 18th August for £180, should you choose not to reimburse the values allocated to the items you have lost. In particular: Item 1) This parcel was damaged by your courier and rejected by the addressee. It appears rather than return the parcel and contents to me, your courier decided to throw the item away. Thus the item has become lost, and therefore (due to my not paying extra for insurance against loss), you have chosen not to compensate. Do you seriously expect to ‘lose’ an item on purpose by throwing it away, and then claim it has been lost and therefore not covered? Item 2) This parcel was lost and I made a claim. During the period of claim, the parcel was found and began to track. Ultimately being delivered (according to an email to the addressee, at 1.41 am 19 July 2020). Clearly the parcel was not delivered at such a time. You have subsequently suggested delivery was at a different time. Despite these suggestions of proper delivery, you have been unable to prove delivery at all, the addressee has confirmed he has not received the item and you have accepted the item is lost.  I do not accept you can be so careless as to lose an item twice. When I purchased this sending through P2G, I selected Parcelforce 48 as the courier. This service has a compensation value of up to £100 for loss. This is why I selected them. It appears however, you chose not to purchase this service from Parcelforce, but an alternative service purporting to be Parcelforce 48, but excluding the standard compensation.  This is not what I had purchased. I do not accept your claim that I should have paid extra for insurance for you to insure, when I had already purchased a service which carried automatic insurance. Further, the service was supposed to be a 48 hour service. The parcel was not collected within the 48 hour period, let alone delivered within it.  I consider the delays in ensuring delivery within the expected timeframe would have contributed to the loss of this item. I hold you responsible for the loss.   Item 3) This item was also subject to a claim for loss. During your investigations, this item was also found and started to track. Messages advising  "Enquiry resolved", "INT Hold" and "Out for delivery”, suggest the item had eventually been found. I do not accept you can be so careless as to find a lost item and subsequently lose it again, regardless of whether I had purchased additional insured. Indeed, the option to purchase such insurance was not available as the item appears to have been excluded from such insurance.   Yours faithfully

In default of agreement the parties may identify their own key documents but will need to justify the absence of agreement to the judge, who may make costs orders consqeuent upon the failure to agree.

    • 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

My 14year old son is just about to use his money hes saved for year to buy his own treadmill, going to be about 500.00.


I may have a little trouble comming up and he insists he wants it.


If he puts it in his name, surely they cant penalise him for being my son?


Need to know if need to stop him buying it:confused: because of my mess.

no the bailiff cant take you sons property for your debt

get a receipt in his/your mothers/fathers/sister name

photo copy it x2 write on copy's given to bailiff get him to sign both ( if the bailiffs get into your house i expect you know you don't have to let them in :D) show them the original receipt and give him a copy for his records and keep other for yourself if he tries to put a levy on it this should cover you


bailiffs levied on a P C that was in my daughters house it belonged to her brother she showed him receipt with her brothers name on it but he still put it on the levy when we complained to the council and sent them a copy of the receipt the levy charges were removed


and if he does put it on levy it makes the levy invalid

legally no they can't but unfortunately as many have discovered that won't stop them -If they do take it you'll have to fight to get it back - in the meantime DO NOT let them into your home under any circumstances whatsoever & no matter what they threaten such as jail etc - If you do that's considered as peacful entry & they can return & force entry to your home

Thanks for advice:)


Ive not even gone to court yet, just trying to be prepared. So when son told me what he had decided I just freaked because we really dont have much of such a value. Although think he'll be ok, can prove where the money was earnt from, have persuaded him to leave it till I know whats going on. I wont let anyone in if he changes his mind and goes ahead, so wont worry till it happens now.


On a plus side hes going to open his first own account and Ive promissed to buy him some new trainers for now. Hes going to run round the estate twice a day instead, hows that for determination, wish I had it.

If he gets it later will make sure its registered to him as has manufactures warranty and keep receipts.


For the record I hope he just jogs round the estate, its cheaper.
