    • 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

Hi

 

Need some advise here.

 

Just over 4 weeks ago I helped my partner write a formal complaint letter to his employer as he has never receieved a contract, pay slip, P60 etc despite working there since November 2008.

 

He handed in the formal letter of complaint and his employers did not seem very happy. He requested that they call him to discuss this once they had had a chance to look through so that they could discuss resolving the problems as he was not prepared to work without a contract any longer. They constantly give him grief about what his role actually is and that he is not doing the right thing he was being pulled from pillar to post by different members of the owner family all running things differently. And also as they have problems paying him constantly he is told they dont have the money to pay him WTF?! And they "might" be able to pay him the next week, i know it sounds bad! They did not call so he called them asking that some one call him back. Again they did not return his calls (a problem he has had for several months trying to get the employer reference number for our tax creds forms). We popped in 2 weeks later as he had not heard anything, he received his P60 and pay slips for April and May. Considering he is paid weekly are they able to give monthly payslips? Also I have reason to believe they have completely forged the amount he got paid! As he is paid weekly and by the hour there is no way he worked exactly the same amount of hours both months! The pay slips are identical! We have no way of checking this as they never paid the money into our account despite us asking them to? But we are 100% convinced they are wrong!

 

My partner called them after another week to discuss when he would get his outstanding wages and his contract etc only to be told not to bother coming back as he had now been replaced! All through this process he was adament he wanted to return once the issues were resolved! Can we do anything about this as they still owe him money and surely they cant do this. I realise it is a difficult situation with no contract but i dont want them to get away with this they do over everyone they seem to employ, no loyalty to their staff they seem to rip their employees off then just get rid of them.

 

Any advice appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

J

To be honest it sounds like he has had a lucky escape there, as his former employers seem to be incapable of running a business!

 

As he was employed for less than 12 months, he would not be elligable to claim for unfair dismissal through a tribunal, however, he may be able to claim for unlawful deductions form wages if they have not paid him properly.

 

as he was never given a formal contract, it will be fairly difficult for them to provide evidence that he had signed something to accept his rate of pay etc

Surely HMRC would be interested in a company who are faking payslips?!

 

Also, on the pay slips he finally received his hourly pay rate was £8 not the £9 per hour he was told when he started there.

 

I have just spoken to ACAS who say although he has worked there for less than 1 year there is still reason for unfair dismissal claim if he believes he has been dismissed as a result of requesting statuatory information which we believe to be the reason! Am now going to write a letter as they advised infoming them that as they have provided no reason otherwise and have failed to respond to the formal letter of complaint we can only believe the reason for his dismissal is the request for information which is a statuatory requirement. We will give them 2 weeks to respond and consider employment tribunal from there.

you will never know unless oyu contact HMRC, do this now, not later.

ok, can this be proved with written evidence to back it up?, does he have a copy of the job advertisment or some other document stating that the rate of pay is £9 p/h?.

If he does, then he can pursue a tribunal for unlawful deduction of wages.

Good, if ACAS say he has the right to a claim then write your letter to the employer stating the reasons and give them nomore than 7 days to reply.

 

in the mean time, nip down to the CAB and pick up a form ET1 and fill it in ready to lodge the claim, so that it can be done on the day your deadline runs out.

Do not dither in this, stick to your preset timescales and ensure that everything remains in writing, do not accept any phone calls or unofficial or undocumented meetings should the employer contact you.
