    • Hi. I'm so sorry about your husband, it's a tough time for you.   Feelings can run very high after someone dies and sadly your son doesn't seem to have helped. A bereavement can bring out the worst in people, I've seen it.   Obviously I don't know the ins and outs of what's happened but is getting embroiled in a family row going to make you feel any better? If you possibly can, I would give this a bit of time so that your feelings can find some kind of equilibrium.   Also, are you sure that this is the time to be trying to sue someone for libel? It's never easy and it can be very expensive.   Hugs, HB
    • I would like some advice please. I lost my husband a week ago. My son is causing a lot of trouble in the family, and has posted a libelous post about me on facebook. My brother told me about it, as I have blocked my son. My brother has also given me a print out of the post, ready for any solicitor that may be able to help me. I am so upset about the post, and what my son has written is so nasty that no son should be able to say anything like it about his own mother. I do hope that someone can help me with this matter, as its not the first time he's posted something nasty about me on facebook. I've tried to report it to facebook, but without luck.

    • another telling point about the current 'claimed capacity' of over 300,000 a day despite the claimed tests - including double counts, blocks of home tests sent out and a fair bit of fairy dust on the numbers   Yesterday we tried to book a retest for O/H ... and there were no tests of any type available apparently anywhere as it said that before I even got to put the country in So unless there were over 300,000 tests yesterday ... ... lies lies and more lies     Seems to me to Indicates the actual 'capacity is the 150,000 which including dupes and posted - half that claimed.   So the real capacity probably sitting at around 80,000 for actual real tests per day.

    • 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

Hello,

I desperately need help!

 

I took out a payday loan with WONGA for £750 in Jan with the loan being due in FEB of this year! I could not afford the repayment in one go at that time but managed to speak to a helpful agent in late FEB who gave me the bank details for Wonga - I have been depositing a weekly sum into the accounts of Wonga which now totals £390 as of Friday.

 

However, on Friday, I received two mobiles calls from an unknown number - I didn't answer - it was JBW group concerning my debt to Wonga.

 

On Saturday, I received a red letter from JBW GRoup for the debt listing a balance of £1,881.06!

 

Now, at 6am this morning, I awoke to banging on the windows from an agent of JBW demanding I open the door!! I told him through the letter box I was a minor and he had to leave!

 

What do I do now? How can Wonga pass on this debt with no warning to me and for such a large amount?

 

Any help appreciated! Thanks

That is totally against OFT guidelines and verges on harrassment anyway.

 

I would make an immediate complaint to:

 

Your local Trading Standards.

 

Copy that to The Office of Fair Trading.

 

Report the matter to your local police station.

 

Make a formal written complaint to JBW and request a copy of their complaints policy.

 

Debt collects have no automatic right to call on you at any time of day let alone at that time. If they show up again, tell them to get of your property or you will call the police as, once you have told them to go, they are trespassing.

Bank Fodder,

 

I'm not a minor but my friend told me to not open the door and tell them through the letter box that I'm a minor to get rid of them. I told him and he kept banging on the door and shoved his ID through the letter box - I slammed it shut but now I'm scared to go out in case they pick my lock while I'm not home or do something drastic like take the door off the hinges!

Hi,

You have no need to say you are a minor, just tell them that they have 10 seonds to get off your property or you will call the police. They have no rights to come to your door and don't worry about them attempting to gain access to your property, they wouldn't dare as that's classed as breaking and entering, a criminal offence.

As advised earlier, report them.

Their website quotes a typical rate of 2689%, then attempts to justify it.

Good Grief 6AM!

Make a call to Consumer Direct, the consumer arm of the OFT and report them.

Must be but an online application.

 

Wonder what the average judge would make of it if a POC was issued.

Does anyone know if I should still continue to deposit money in Wonga's account or should I stop seeing as they have passed on the debt to JBW Group? I'm on my way to the police right now as the neighbours told me they were disturbed by the agent as well.

this has to be a conflict of interest, big time

 

a baliff company doing collections on civil debt

 

it seems they are passing the civil debt cases to there normal baliffs

 

think about it

 

bank on the door saying you owe xyz to say wonga

 

you say in dispute, they then say they will take your goods and flash a legit baliff badge

 

if you knew no difference, it would scare the hell out of some people, let alone some fictiouse collection charge on top

 

this cant be right

When do you need to pay again?

It might be worth ringing JBW (although we normally advise not to) to inform them that you find their behaviour unacceptable & what you will be doing about it etc...

Be firm if you do & do not let them bully you into payment.

Insist the police do something after all as tax payers WE PAY them to protect us from this harrasment the same goes for the oft and trading standards. The time has come for robuts action and not just tea and scones and a cosy chat, a few £50.000 fines and licences revocations would soon get the message across

Well I just came from the police station - made my report but it is unenforceable unless a) actual bodily harm is done or b) they enter by undue force......... I've got to possibly endure many more visits just to get them off my back!!

 

I've made my complaint to Trading Standards / Consumer Direct verbally and will send off a letter momentarily.

 

The CSA is also getting a letter about JBW's tactics ........

 

I usually pay £18.75 on Fridays into Wonga's account - but should I continue to pay this?

Do you have a digital camera with video capability?

 

Or if you can afford it buy a small cctv camera for around ten pounds from ebay.

 

When they next knock just start filming them with your camera or point to the cctc camera and tell them all is being recorded. They will back off then because they will need to be nice, you can ask them to leave and if they don't you will have it recorded so they probably will go.

 

You can even put a fake cctv camera up as long as you mention they are being recorded they will leave you alone rather than get heavy handed.

As usual the cops have told the victim a load of carp - no bodily harm needs to be done for there to have been an offence committed - You only have to be put in fear for your wellbeing for there have to been an assault

 

Where do you live It's not West London is it cos if it is the cops there act like debt collectors & will assist the DCA I understand there are already a number of complaints with the IPCC on this very matter
