    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry. 
    • The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many countries into recession - but what exactly is it and how could it affect you? View the full article
    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • 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, thanks for taking the time to read my problem. we are in a position of going bankrupt through the l.i.l.a route once we get together the fee and sort a few more details out.

 

we owe moorcroft money for about 3 different accounts, the problem is they are sending the mail to my neighbours address which is very similar to mine i have been on the phone to them asking to change the address back to mine. they say mine was down as a previous address and on the letters they send they say they got this address from a credit reference agency who linked addresses.

 

my neighbour believed that we were hurting his ability to obtain credit and the next day came round with one of the letters he had opened from moorcroft and said this was why he wasnt getting credit it was all very embarassing. then a week later he came round shouting again because another letter had came which he said he opened to get a number to ring them.

 

more than anything i just want them to stop sending my mail to the neighbour who is getting pretty angry because it isnt sorted.

 

thanks for any help in advance, alan :)

I would write to their complaints department and inform them that they are writing to the wrong address and if they continue to write to the wrong address then you will be reporting them to the OFT.

 

Also write to the Credit Reference Agency's telling them you have no link with your neighbours address and ask them to remove your neighbours address.

 

Sorry i cannot be of more help.

Your neibour is breaking the law by opening your mail for a start. Your credit file cannot affect his either. He could phone moorcroft and tell them to stop sending mail to his house.

I'm not sure about that:

 

" (3) A person commits an offence if, intending to act to a person's detriment and without reasonable excuse, he opens a postal packet which he knows or reasonably suspects has been incorrectly delivered to him."

 

Postal Services Act 2000 (c. 26)

 

The "intending to act to a person's detriment" would seem to be the bit that determines whether it's an offence or not.

hi

 

Count orlok is right, your neighbour is definately breaking the law, there is a return address on the envelope, so he has no reason at all to open the letter, especially as it does not have his name on the front.

 

Quote:

" (3) A person commits an offence if, intending to act to a person's detriment and without reasonable excuse, he opens a postal packet which he knows or reasonably suspects has been incorrectly delivered to him."

 

your neighbour has no 'reasonable' excuse for opening your mail, it clearly has your name on it, and a return address on the reverse. A lot of people have the opinion that because the mail has come to their address they can open it, they are incorrect and breaking the law by opening it!

 

And your neighbours house has nothing to do with him obtaining credit, a credit file affects the individual, not the property, so he must have debt himself to be refused credit!

 

I would put your complaint in writing to Moorcroft, OFT, Trading Standards, FSA and CSA, as in my experience, Moorcroft staff are incapable of recording accurate or correct information.

 

Hope this helps.

i really appreciate all the replys folks :)

 

i tried to tell the guy it has nothing to do with his credit score but he reckons its blacklisting his house (i know it isnt!) i thought it was problly illegal to open my mail but i dont want to make a big deal of it incase he goes shouting off to everybody about our debt problems :(

 

i will get some letters typed up to send to moorcroft and oft etc i just hope they listen quick enough, on the phone they were only interested in getting me to make a token payments before they could stop the action as they called it!

 

thanks again, alan
