    • thanks for the response   The items arrived totally damaged and our customer sent them back and we had to re make all of the items again. This cost was just over £7000. Yes we are on a creidt type account, I asked for the compensation on the problem delivery and they decided to lie and cheat and then close the complaint. we did take photos and so did my customer, DPD said they could not use them as it didnt show enough detail. this again is untrue.    The invoice we are with holding is £530  We had to remake all of the work as mentioned above.    I hope this helps a little more  
    • Hi I use Martin Lewis Credit club and if I click on the defaults they say ‘account settled’ and the dates range from December 17 to Feb 18 under each tab. It also states the name of the new debt owner now and says last updated.    Will that be the default  dates or will I find it elsewhere?         
    • Hi Andy, yes they did + another £600 for flush and repair! I was surprised that they just accepted the FOS terms without a whimper. Cheque received and cashed.     @dx100uk Agreed. I read people having similar issues with getting repairs from ASG, not sure if it was on here or another site but they seem to adopt the same line about it being the customers responsibility to keep their system fresh and clean. My system was powerflushed in 2016 and by 2018 it was similar to having 4 blocked arteries. I have my doubts as to whether it was done.
    • Hi there, so as I write this this has been going on since 2005, basically I got myself into debt when I was younger and couldn’t afford to pay it all back. Lloyds put everything together and it came out over £20,000 this Was passed onto Lloyds debt recovery team in 2005 but I was paying the debt off in small amounts I believe this debt was then passed onto a company called Robinson way in January 2006 where I was paying £130 a month this then changed to debt managers and then onto clarity Lloyds and arrow global have stated that I made no payments between 2005 and 2009 even though I have proof I paid Robinson way! This is where it’s gets complicated my dad was making the Payments from his account to Robinson way. The other issue I had was for from 2015 onwards I also had a problem with passing security and I believed my details were compromised with arrow global, who I found out they had the date of birth of myself the wrong month after contacting Lloyds they stated they had the right date of birth and had it right all the time. It turned out Lloyds were actually incorrect and didn’t have my right date of birth at all and an address I never lived at. So for the last 6 months I have been trying to get hold of Robinson way as they don’t have the correct details for me and I can’t get the information. But here’s the plot twist apparently Arrow managed to get hold of Robinson way and they state the debt wasn’t for that But how as Robinson way didn’t have the correct details for me. Unfortunately I have lost all faith in  Arrow. I asked Lloyds for everything to do with my account And I have received a letter after all this to go into branch to identify myself 😢 I have been living this nightmare for the last 15 years and I know I got myself into this but I have made these payments since 2005 what can I do if anything I have been through the financial obdusman who to be frank were terrible.

    • 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

This is regarding a unfortunate event took place on 19-06-09 at your Boots store, Ilford, IG1 1DE.

I went inside the store and picked up few cosmetics from the ground floor and then went upstairs as i have to buy some baby products as well. I did all my purchasing and paid the amount at 1st floor except few cosmetics as I wanted to change the shade, so I was heading towards the lift to go on the ground floor , I carried all the cosmetics in my hand while going down, but then it was getting too difficult to push the baby buggy with it as I was attending a call on my mobile at the same time so i just kept all the items in the bag which I was holding in my hand and while talking on the phone I just walked away from the boots store without realising that I am carrying some items which are not paid and then the security person asked me to come in the store, I went with him.. he asked me to put the call down, I did that and then he asked me what all i have taken from the store, I was showing him the stuff and realised the unpaid cosmetics are also with me but this was just a unfortunate event and not intentional, I tried hard to explain the security man but he keeps shouting on me ... I did whatever he said at that time as I did not wanted any scene to be created at that time as my 4month old baby was with me

He gave me below 3 papers

1. Letter from Boots store for not entering the boots store again

2. Notice of intended civil recovery (RLP will send a letter for compansation)

3. Exclusion notice

Moreover my advantage card has been blocked which is worth 17pounds, this is not at all fair.

Please suggest whar shall i do?

Tanutex,welcome to the board.

 

Are you saying that you put the items in the bag ,in the lift,or that you did this on the ground floor?

 

How do you know your advantage card has been blocked?

 

As regards the exclusion notice,what stores does that say you are excluded from? IS it just BOOts or allth eother stores within the town scheme group?

Hi Shanty

I checked my advantage card online for shopping and it says it is blocked.

 

It says only 'this store' , so its only boots store.

Ok.

So you are saying you put the items in your bag in the lift,only when you received a mobile call while in the lift(there are cameras in there usually) and didn't take them out until you were stopped outside?Presumably the cctv evidence can be produced to confirm what you have said.

 

I am not surprised Boots have blocked your card ( I expect the terms and conditions say the card technically belongs to them) they have in effect banned you from entering the store,so you can't spend the points.

 

He was wrong if he bullied you in any way,and if you told him it was not deliberate,he should have called the Police,to establish the facts.

 

Was there another female,a Manager, present when you were in the office?

 

Why did he shout at you-very unproffessional.

Did you sign anything and give them your name and address etc.? If you were convinced it was a mistake and you could convince a court of such you should not have accepted any forms and not signed anything. |However inthe heat of the moment and under bullying tactics you feel vulnerable and it s understandable. They may or may not take you to court if you dont pay their Fine/expenses etc. If as JC says somebody will represent you then maybe thats the way to go.

Yes, they have made me signed a paper in which it is written that due to unacceptable behavior i am not allowed to enter this store again and if i do so further legal actions will be taken, also they have clicked my picture.

at that time it was so embarassing and i was stressed as the baby was with me and i have never came across any of these situation ever in my life so i din knew what to do at that time.

I am so tense these days in figuring out the best way to solve it without much of expense.

I kept the items inside the lift but i got the phone call just before entering the lift...

there was no female or store manager present at that time in the office, infact at one time he asked me leave the baby in the room alone, n he asked me come along with him to varify my address n date of birth.

 

he was shouting as i was trying to explain him what happened and it was not at all intensional.

tanutex Unless your prepared to put up a fight now you'll be forced to pay them, reason you signed the Boots forms & they'll use that as confirmation of your dishonesty....... in addition you WILL also be put on their data base as being dishonest........... this alone may result in your being denied a job or future credit.......... & if this government get their way it may even effect your foreign travel

I am horrified that you were not accompanied by another female in the office-that is outrageous .

 

I can assure you this is STRICTLY against company policy.

 

It could be said that you felt intimidated by the males presence,and only signed the paperwork because you were scared.

 

In addition to everything else you are advised to do,I suggest you contact Boots Customer Services by phone and find the contact details for that branches Regional Security Manager,it may be called the Regional Profit Protection Manager.Tell him you were on your own in the office with a male and were not given the option to have another female present,tell him you were told to leave your baby on his/her own and you felt intimidated and nervous.

 

Unless someone else can suggest how to do this within a legal framework, or with a legally worded letter referring to the fact she was un chaperoned,which would be better than a phone conversation.

Asked you to leave your baby alone!! You definitely have a case to fight here.This is not good public relation for Boots,as a large part of their business is Mother and Baby.

I just suggest you ask them for the Regional Profit Protection Managers address for Ilford store.That's not the same as the Store Manager.Then write to him,rather than phone him.I wouldn't offer to discuss the issue with customer care,because they wouldn't appreciate what you are trying to explain.Leave that for your letter to the Profit Protection Manager.

 

If they try to push you to tell them what the issue is,say you would rather discuss it by letter with him.

Did they ask your permission to take your photograph?What did they say?

Personally,I feel that the taking of photos (unless done by the Police) is a step too far.

No, nothing of that sort, it says.. althoughour client claims for 137£, on an entirely ''without prejudice'' basis our client would be prepared to accept £110 in ful and final settlement of this civil claim against you, provided you pay within 21days.

'Without prejudice" means you could pay up & still be charged with a crime or sued by the retailer

 

Correctly written to be understood by a lay person it should read 'Without prejudice as to liability' which can mean theirs or yours..........whereas 'Without prejudice' means little to the lay person & could therefore be challenged as meaningless to that lay recipient

Thanks all of you but i think there is no other option for me except to pay to RLP.. solicitors and court cases will take much more money than what i have to pay to RLP right now.. this is really sad for me as i am not ale to fight for justice but truly speaking i don't have money to spend on the case...

I tried to take help of our counseller in the county but no returns.

Thanks a lot for your guidence...

Be warned if you pay up you WILL be put onto their 'dishonest' persons data base for at least 6 years to which lenders, DCA's, CRA's & employers past or present will have access if they are clients of RLP
