    • Thanks for this update. Obviously I'm very pleased that your guitar has been delivered and that you don't have to take any further action about this. On the other hand, I'm slightly disappointed because I was hoping that this might be an opportunity to deliver a serious slap against Hermes. Anyway, who knows why it happened like this – but the most important thing is that the item has been delivered and you're not out of pocket – and also probably you have learned a good lesson – don't use Hermes – or Packlink. It's a recipe for trouble.

    • I have debts of my own and will sort another advice separate for them as now I’m not working and a full time carer for wife & daughter I’m struggling to pay them so will want advice on letters to send them for reduced payments etc But for now I need to know what to do about PayPal as its really making me worry and is making me ill but ive got to try be strong and put on brave face for wife & daughter I dont want them picking up on something is wrong & worrying me
    • Help & Advice wanted on PayPal debt please I had someone staying with me for a while before they moved away and they had access to my PayPal account and was buying a few things and giving me the money no problem but then unknown to me until it was to late they had a gambling problem also and last off used my PayPal to fund online gambling . They ended up using £5,000 through PayPal and the first I knew was when I went to do some online banking and seen £1200 went out of my bank for PayPal so I looked straightaway and stopped / cancelled my bank letting PayPal take from my account . Then I logged on to PayPal and seen transactions 1 after another this going to total the £5,000 so I unlinked my bank & cards from PayPal account . Then nearly 2 weeks after I started getting emails and messages saying my account was in negative balance for £3,800 because they already had the £1200 . I’m in a bit of debt anyway and struggling so for this to happen left me feeling very ill to find they have spent thousands and left me without anything no money to live on or feed family even at the time as that £1200 that was took out of my account was all I had, I’m very annoyed and feeling very mad and very ill. Ive no idea how I can put this right as got no work no money because My wife got struck down with illness and disabled and I also have special needs daughter so I’m now a full time carer for both wife and daughter . I need to sort this but dont know how or best way to go about it. Ive had emails from PayPal and ive replied and explained plus went on live chat etc and asked for it to be logged and for them to please come to some payment agreement even though I cant afford it I know I got to put things right somehow but had no joy in chat and was just told pay into PayPal what I owe. So again I get emails and I reply but not getting any reply back to my emails . Ive not told my ill disabled wife about this right now as it would push her over the top and make her more ill thinking about it and its her Nephew to top things off so I know it would destroy her . Ive tried talking to someone with PayPal in live chat etc and emails as said asked if it can be logged showing ive been in touch regarding this matter and need to try sort it and also asked for them to contact me in writing so hopefully we can come to some sort of agreement to put this right but so far its been about 31 days now since account been in negative and ive had no phone calls or letters from them yet So what can I do and whats best way to deal with this I’m trying to pursue the person for these funds as we speak but know I’m not going to get anywhere

    • 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 hope someone can help because my flatmate and I are ready to tear our hair out.


Basically I moved into a one bed flat at the end of August 2009 with a deposit of £300 which I paid and signed the contract and heard nothing more.


Note that my landlord is English but he lives in Dubai. His son did live in the flat next door but he moved out to Dubai as well.


After 4 months my friend was looking for a place to live and the 2 bed flat my landlord's son had lived in was free so he agreed to let us move in there at the start of December 2009.


A new AST was signed and the deposits were £200 each. He kept my original £300 and said my flat mate could pay him £100.00.


We carried out the inventory ourselves as there was no agent, and the landlord was obviously not about!


The flat was disgusting and my flatmate is a fanatic cleaner, so she set to and cleaned the entire place and then wrote an email to the landlord complaining. He followed this us by saying he would pay her £100.00 for the cleaning.


He got an agent for the place by around end of April 2009 to start of May 2009.


We have since moved out of the flat at the end of May 2009.

Before we moved out we tried to arrange a date to do the inventory with the agent but they said they would only do this during weekdays between 9am and 5.30pm.

We both work 9am-6pm which our landlord knew as well as the agent.

Conveniently the agent had been happy to come to the flat at 6.3pm previously to take photos to advertise the flat and on a Saturday to do an EPC!!


Therefore the inventory was carried out the week after we left, without us.

We are since being charged for cleaning of the flat, although this is for dust! They are trying to charge us around £30 to clean this. Note that we cleaned the flat before we left and dust takes less than a day to gather.


We have agreed to pay for the oven to be cleaned and for a new freezer draw as we cracked one, although it is purely cosmetic damage. We offer £75.00 to bring this to an end. ( £40.00 for oven cleaning and £35.00 for drawer, after finding a quote online).


Our landlord has rejected this and wanted to take around £153.00 off our deposit, and then includes the dusting!


We sent photos we took the day we left the flat but yet our landlord says all it shows is that we left the place tidy.


It may sound petty, but we don't see why we should have money taken from us when we have already carried out the task.


Note that he also wants to charge us £26 for a new lamp which we apparently dented - yet it still works!!


We have since been told about the TDS, which we knew nothing about and the landlord gave us no info about. We never recieved anything saying it was in a scheme and the contract says nothing except , "the landlord will get the interest on the bond".


Please can someone help us and give us advice of how to proceed. We are willing to take this the whole way but we need to know if we have a leg to stand on.





thanks in advance for any help.
