    • EU deal replicated 'as far as possible' ... aka less than   "The British Government is continuing to work intensively on securing continuity with other countries. We have secured agreements – either signed or agreed in principle - that account for 64% of the UK’s trade with all the countries with which the UK is seeking continuity, should we leave the EU without a deal."   With what I've seen on that page I linked earlier, that would seem to be decidedly unambitious 'trade deals across the world larger than the EU
    • dx100uk - thank you for your advice.  I will send a SAR to Vanquis and really appreciate all the help on here.   I may have read your last sentence in the way that it was not intended but it has came across very judgmental and not helpful.  I have came on this site for some help, not to be judged.  If that was not your intention then I apologise as I realise text can be read in the way it was not intended.  
    • . I'm sorry but this is not correct. There is a very long established rule that you are required to exercise utmost good faith (uberrima fides) when becoming a party to any kind of insurance contract. This means that you have quite a strict duty to accept responsibility for disclosing any information which a reasonable person in your position might understand could materially affect the risk. I can imagine that the interpretation of this rule would not be applied quite so strictly to a very new and young driver – but the more that one has been driving and the more insurance policies one has held, then I think that the stricter  this rule becomes. It is also well established that one can misrepresent something simply by withholding information – by silence. I'm sorry to say that I think that this rule and the value of it is so self-evident that it is scarcely worth discussing. I wouldn't start raising this issue if I were you with insurers or the courts because you will come away with a bloody nose and loss of credibility
    • @unclebulgaria67 your point is particularly valid especially in regards to loss in the event of a claim. Irrespective of 2x SP30’s or not the vehicle is insured for its full market value. The insurers rating changes based on risk against those endorsements, where said risk calculation isn’t made available.    Also I question the validation of 22% in premium. Is that based on today’s risk profiling, or is that applied retrospectively to day 1 and can that be evidenced.    One thing that is very clear, is that to bring about any degree of misrepresentation the insurer has to have evidence that questions were asked in regards to the endorsements.   This was an auto renewal and when I’ve checked the Brokers electronic Copy on “My Policy’ at renewal, there is no section included relative to accidents in the last 5 yrs or Motoring convictions. Everything else relative to me and the named driver is listed.

    • 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 all,

I am in a rare situation today, one that I have never come across before. I am planning on renting a flat in London for the next week and went to this website which offered me reasonable rent and so I went ahead and booked it and sent them money online. Now the agent is not responding back. The agent did send me her Bank details (Halifax bank, UK) with sort code and also sent me her Passport copy as proof. But after the money is transferred she is not receiving my calls. I tried calling her from other number, she received that call and when asked about my transaction she said she will check her bank and let me know.

I am travelling with my parents & children and I cant go about searching for accomodation when I Land in London. Do I call police and complain? Is she Dodgy ? Will I get my money back? What do I do now? Any advice would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Thanks,

 

Theres the possibility that you have been the victim of a [problem]. All you can do is wait and see if she contacts you again after she has checked her bank, it could all be a misunderstanding.

 

I would report the matter to the police, although they will likley class it as a civil matter and do nothing more.

 

You need to be prepared for the possibiity that the money is lost and you wont get it back.

Have you spoken to her again since?

 

Theres an address on the website which ou can always call in at when you get over here.

 

If it is a [problem] then you might be able to complain to the ISP that hosts the site to have it removed although the 'evidence' you have at the moment that it is a [problem] is potentially pretty shaky.

 

I dont think the bank will assist you in tracing her address.

 

Not sure what use her passport (if it is real) could be.

She E-mailed us last on Tuesday informing us she received the money and after that she has been completely avoiding us. We tried calling her using many different number, she calls us backa and after hearing us she puts the receiver back on hook:mad:

We are planning to go straight to the place mentioned on the website and from then on decide what to do . I understand I cant lodge a complaint until we the actual date, so its a wait game really.

Wanting so much to catch her and give her a peice of my mind right now:(

When do you arrive in the UK?

 

I noted that the telephone number provided is a mobile number. The fax number is an 0203 - these numbers have only just been issued so this no. is very new - not a long-established number.

 

I do have a suggestion though: Why don't you send her a fax saying that you are concerned that you have been unable to have a conversation with her to confirm the arrangements for which you have paid.

 

Ask her to please respond by return regarding these arrangements and say that if you do not hear from her, you will feel that you have no alternative but to contact the authorities.

 

I am not sure this will help, but it might be worth a try.
