    • Hi,  I'm new here, and hoping that this is the right place to post this.   I applied for pip and was awarded standard mobility (10 points).  I did an M.R. but got the same result. They acknowledge that I can't leave my house without having someone with me. They accept that I'm not completely housebound as I go out to appointments, which are not a regular occurrence, they also said that they can't award me enhanced because I'm not out most days.  Is this correct?  Surely it shouldn't matter how often I go out? 
    • The Legal Ombudsman has a wider remit than the SRA, and can always refer matters on to the SRA where they find a breach of the SRA's code.   I'd suggest writing to the solicitors, highlighting these issues, asking them to refund the money. If they don't then complain to the LO.
    • Good morning all,   I have an update for you all, shortly after my first hearing i was told i would need to have a rehearing with another company, Obviously i agreed but after the initial grievance hearing the person then asked me to enter into a private conversation, I have received the settlement offer and are disgusted as its not even half of my monthly  salary, I'm not sure what to do at this stage as i dont have the funds to finance a solicitor,so any advice would be appreciated.  
    • Sorry, but what does this mean?   Who are ARC? It would be helpful if you could be a little bit more clear about what happened. I don't understand why you are not simply proceeding against Amazon – because it is clearly their responsibility as it was their driver or courier company
    • I understand that you were involved in a contentious divorce in respect of which there was a bill for court costs – £850. You decided to challenge the costs in court and you lost and an order was made against you. We decided to appeal the order but before the appeal was heard, the solicitors made you a without prejudice offer of a 50-50 split – £425. You agree to this and you signed the document to that effect which you returned to the solicitors. Despite that the solicitors are now trying to impose the original £850 order. Is that the correct order of events? "Without prejudice" is certainly something that doesn't seem to be very well understood, including by solicitors. "Without prejudice" can protect an offer from being disclosed to the court where the offer has been refused so that it is not binding on anyone. However, without prejudice cannot be used to hide everything from the court – including wrongdoings, unethical behaviour et cetera. It seems to me that once you sign the agreement you effectively had a contract. I'd like to know a little bit more about the agreement that you signed but presumably it was intended to bring a halt to any further proceedings. I don't think there is any difficulty about disclosing a contract to the court in the circumstances. It is only the offer which was made without prejudice. Once the agreement was accepted and signed then the document acquired a wholly different character. It was no longer an offer open to be accepted or refused. It was a legally binding contract which imposed obligations upon both sides. In my view the solicitors have acted in a highly unethical way and I would begin by making a complaint to the SRA. I wonder whether the solicitors proposed the 50-50 split to you without consulting with their client and when they then contacted their client and told her what had been agreed, she refused to accept it and on that basis the solicitors recognised that they had made an error but rather than accept their responsibility and footing the £425 out of their own pockets, they preferred to get it from you. Of course this is just speculation but it seems to me to be quite a possible scenario. I'd like to see the agreement post up here please – that my sense is that you should complain to the SRA and you should tell the solicitors that this is what you're doing.

    • 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

Hi, Please help me..

 

I have had a call this morning from DLC who are concerned about my Income/Expenditure and small token payment against a very large Egg debt.

 

I have stopped speaking to them but they said it was regarding my childrens welfare so I spoke with them.

 

Because I have very little left they indicated that my children could suffer and social services may be informed and also the school they attend so she said I need to look at ways of raising my income which I will struggle to do.

 

I have sent SAR request and think the DN was wrong so I am going to challenge (see my other thread) them

 

I really dont know what to do in the meantime.

 

Should I tell the headmaster that I am in financial difficulty before they do. Will that look better to social services???

 

They are all I have now.

 

 

Vicky

THEY DID WHAT!!!!

 

If they did that, they would be breaking data protection laws.

 

They are just trying to scare you.

 

Report them straight away


If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Look at this logically, if the School & Social Services were to become involved in a situation like this 50% or more of the country would be under scrutiny.

This is a prime example of why you should never speak to these cretins on the 'phone. They will try every underhand dirty trick in the book to scare you into making payments into their filthy coffers. It's a dirty disgusting trade & I hope each and every one of them burn in hell.

 

Contact your MP too to complain.

Hi honeypot, if DLC is so concerned that they believe that your lack of money may cause your children to suffer why have they not considered writting off your debt ? They are just trying to extract more from you by any means .

Exactly, these low lifes will try any tactic to make you panic and agree to paying higher payments.

 

Social Services would not be in the least bit interested that you have debts, you are not giving into DLC and giving them the money that would feed and clothe your children.

 

I have 2 children & on my I&E form I entered the amount for school 'hot' dinners as I want my children to have a hot lunch in the winter months. I was asked by DCA if this was absolutely necessary:-x

 

Do not listen too them & if you do give in & listen, respond by telling them

thank you for bringing it to your attention that your children maybe suffering and you will therefore be reducing your payments or better still stopping them all together.

 

Report them immediately, they can not be allowed to get away it.

It's a shame you couldn't have recorded the call or were able to afford to purchase a conversation recorder, and speak to them again on the phone.

 

To have what they said recorded would have been priceless in having these scumbags closed down!

 

They are breaking the law and they can't do anything to you except phone and write stupid letters, which can sound intimidating but once you know what they can and can't do you soon realise 'what the hell was I worrying about!?'

 

If you have a problem like this share it on here you will always get great advice and an answer to any debt problem.

 

So never get worried about these mugs!

From now on- do NOT speak to them EVER again. EVER.

 

When they ring- refuse to confirm your ID and tell the person to put anything they whant to say to you in writing them slam the phone down.

 

After each call ring 14258. This will block the last number that called you.

 

Do it each time they and they will eventually run out of phone lines.

 

Listen to the advice given here.
