    • 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

sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this.

I moved into a council house in february, i have a 20month old daughter and am 5 months pregnant with my 2nd child.

we thought we had gotten a really lucky and had nice neighbours on both sides until on wednesday after getting home from work i had a letter from the council saying a complaint had been made about us for anti-social behaviour. i tried calling the council on thursday and friday but the person i need to speak to is never available so we still do not know what it is about. we get on really well with one side of neighbours (lets say neighbour A) and they have even invited us for a garden party in july, after speaking to them they have said they will write us a letter to say they have had no problems from us and also informed us that the neighbours on the other side of us (lets say neighbour B) are renowned for complaining about people and once even called the fire brigade out because my neighbour A had a bonfire.

Me and my partner both work in the pub trade so 3 night a week one of us wont finish work until about half 10. but as we have a toddler we keep quiet after she goes to bed (her bedtime is 7:30), i dont even flush the toilet after this time because it is opposite her room.

lastnight my parner arrived home from work at 10:45 and went into the kitchen at about 11:05 to make dinner, as he was getting a pan out of the cupboard the neighbour B started violently banging on the wall.

 

like i said i am 5 months pregnat and this is really stressing me out, i dont think getting pans out of a cupboard to make dinner is excessive noise, but i feel intimidated by neighbour B by them banging on the wall as i think this is quite a violent act of rage to react like that, i feel i have to tiptoe around my house and now dont want to have to go into my kithcin at night to get a drink because they are going to complain about us, they are making me feel uncomfortable in my home which up until recently i felt very happy in.

 

My question is what are my right when it comes to them making what i feel are unreasonable complaints and also banging on my walls. as i am in a council house i dont want to be evicted for making normal household noise

Eviction don't come that easy so be assured about that.

 

Don't telephone the council, send a recorded delivery letter to the address on the letter you received and ask them what the problem is.

 

You can also judge the level of noise with the assistance of your nice neighbour. Turn on the tv or stereo at above normal level and go next door to have a listen for yourself.

Get you partner to talk and raise their voice or drop a saucepan near the wall of the nice neighbour to see how loud it is.

 

Just don't be a prisoner in your own home or be held to ransom by them. If there is a problem with the building, then the council will have to add some sound insulation.

Please don't be worrying about being evicted! It is very difficult for the Council to evict on these grounds, a whole trial has to happen in most cases.

 

If these people are persistent complainers, then there will be a record of this on their file ad your Housing Officer will know them of old.

 

Your neighbour has to accept that there will be normal living noises. Your HO will advise them of this.

 

Don;t worry anymore about it, except to send a letter to your HO, stating that you are a little worried about these allegations and would like to have it noted that you are not making an unreasonable noise and that your other neighbours would be prepared to say so. I shouldmention that a new baby is imminent, because of they are complaining about your ordinary living noises now, a baby will really upset them, but there is nothing that they can do about it except move.

 

I would keep a record of the banging on the wall, what you did at the time it happened, etc., as well as notes of any confrontations. Little word of advice, whatever they say, whatever they do, don't rear up at them or have a go back, because the minute you do you make them the victim. Just shut the door, walk away and note it all down.

 

Dont worry, you won;t lose your home.

thanks for your advice, the complaint letter we got said there will be a meeting on friday at 11, but i will be unable to make the time so i will need to arrange another meeting, so i will let the council know that we arent making excessive noise, when they banged on the wall we didnt do anything, just carried on making dinner and talked (about them banging). i may see if my nice neighbours will let us do a noise test and talk to the council about wall insulation.

 

i dont think the baby will bother them as they have children themselves one being a toddler also so they should accept that children will cry etc.

Also get the council to look at the standard of sound insulation of the property, there are minimum standards and it will be up to the council to comply.

I haven't had a read of this for years gyzmo, but have a look and go in their forum, you might find just what you want.

This takes you directly to the legal bits but I haven't had a look at this either.

Report neighbour B to the council for anti-social behaviour. Banging on the wall is not polite behaviour.

I have had problems with noisy neighbours in the past, and when I DID complain they [my neighbours] said I was very "Petty" and warned me "not to do it again". Then they moved out, as did I, and that was the end of that.

 

I now have neighbours who are VERY nice although the couple above me do engage in shouting matches occasionally....makes for good entertainment oddly enough.

the lady we spoke to at the council agreed it was petty the complaints they have made about us, they made a 2nd complaint because my partner dropped a glass jug in the kitchen at about 10:30pm (obviously an accident, were not in the habit of smashing stuff). when the lady from the council phoned to report we had a complaint made about us she said im only calling because i have to follow all these up, but im not going to even bother logging the complaint because people are entitled to cook dinner at whatever time they like and for them to complaint because you dropped something on a one off occasion is outrageous. we are not 'noisy neighbours', just people trying to live our lives without people harrasing us over the most petty things.
