    • Hi all,   Just an update with contractual terms. These terms are from a contract at a similar time to when Tracey started as we think they have changed since.   The contract reads as follows:   Termination of employment  Xxxxxxx (Nursery) will provide written notice of termination of your employment in accordance with statutory requirement (currently 1 week’s notice for each year of continuous service, up to a maximum 12 week’s notice).   Once you have successfully completed your probationary period for the company you are required to give 1 month’s written notice of termination of employment.   Regards   Matt             
    • 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.

    • 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

I would be grateful if someone could give any advice on how to deal with this.... I have a debt from HSBC relating to a student overdraft from 1998, which I started making payments to wescot Credit services back in 2005. Since then Ive been paying them £50 a month by Standing Order. A couple of years ago I moved address and didnt inform Wescot of this, however continued to make payments.

 

Over the last couple of months I have been getting letters from Fredrickson / Phoenix, chasing this debt, at my new address. Having finally spoken to Wescott they said that the debt was taken off them some time back and they had been sending my payments onto Metropolitan Collection Services / HSBC, and that I should cancel my DD with them and speak to Metropolitan directly. The bloke from Wescott also said he was surprised that the debt had been taken off them as i had been making regular payments each month etc.

 

Phoenix have now written to me advising they have made enquiries and can confrim i am resident at this address and that they will be taking legal proceedings against me.

 

I am unsure whether to respond to Phoenix or try any get some sense out of Metropolitan, or just forget about them both- any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi there,

 

Phoenix are EVIL! They will litigate at the drop of a hat because their policy is to get a CCJ and then a CO if you own a House.

 

My advice would be to get a SAR sent out as soon as possible to try and find out when your Debt was assigned etc.

 

As you have not received a Notice of assignment they must prove they own the debt also so don't send them any money until they do.

 

Spam. :-)

Any advice I offer is probably useless but there may be little nuggets of gold in there somewhere......If I have helped in any way, be it with knowledge or by giving your chuckle muscle some exercise please feel free to tip my scales....:-D

 

 

They say money talks......mine just keeps saying "Goodbye"

So i should write to them with the SAR and ask them for a notice of assignment at once or do i leave them to write to me with that?

 

I was in two minds whether to just contact Metropolitain / HSBC direct and try and do a deal with them...

Hi,

My personal view would to be to ignore anything that Phoenix are saying through whatever mouthpiece they are using.

 

Send a Subject access request to your original creditor and they should supply all the info that you need to see whether or not Phoenix now 'OWN'

this account. If they do own the account and you haven't received a notice of assignment then they are on a sticky wicket... If you wish to continue paying your standing order to your OC just to keep things ticking over that's great.... don't even acknowledge Phoenix exists let alone pay them any money because you have received no legal Notice of Assignment to them and they could be anybody...

 

Just in case they do miraculously send a NOA to you it must be sent recorded or special delivery. If it arrives in ordinary post it is not deemed 'served' as they can't prove you've received it.

 

Spam. :)

Sorry ... another question on this, can I CCA HSBC on this or does the fact that payments have been made on the debt prevent me from going along that route?

There is nothing to stop you from doing that...the more ammo you get the better...If you get a copy of credit agreement that turns out to be unenforceable it will add more fun to fighting Phoenix...:p

 

Seriously, just ask for as much paperwork as possible regarding the account and then when you've got it post it up for advice..
