    • 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 everyone I'm a newbie to this site and after reading several posts thought I would start one of my own.

 

I am curently being persued by ARC for a David Lloyd membership I didn't give 3 months notice of terminating. I have read several quite old posts on this site that advise that these clowns are not worth dealing with and should be ignored. I'm all for that but as I cannot find any recent dealings with them posted on this site, thought it best to check.

 

I took the gym membership out with my ex partner. We gained a discount based on where she worked altough the payments went out of my bank account. Is she liable as the discount was made due to her workplace? I'm presuming I was a guest on her membership so its her problem not mine. Is that correct? I have no records since moving so am a bit at a loss as to what I signed up for.

 

I have recieved a quite strong worded letter stating I have 10 days to pay off the debt or court action awaits me. Any help and advice would be most appreciated.

 

Thanks all.

hi,

 

Thanks for responding. I think we both signed something but to be honest I cant remember if my signature was just for the direct debit instruction. Should I ask them to produce a signed agreement? I payed 12 months and I'm dammed if I'm gonna cough up for another 3 plus what ARC have put on top as commission. I've read some posts that suggest speaking to David Lloyd direct but I just think its unreasonable to give 3 months notice especially when that part of the deal wasn't made clear to us by the rep selling the membership.

 

Thanks for the advice.

I have a major complaint going through with David Lloyd at the moment. The way that I have been treated by them is nothing more than inhuman all because they cocked up my suspension of membership and refused to do anything about it. Its not like I suspended my membership because I just didn't want to go any more, my mum is dyeing and I needed all of my spare time to help look after her. You would think that I would be shown some compassion, but noooooo. I've even been laughed at down the phone.

 

I've been looking for directors names or even an e-mail or contact details for Scott Lloyd that doesn't take to through to his helper monkeys, but these guys are so well hidden, it makes you wonder what they have to hide.

 

Oh dear I seem to have hijacked your thread. But good luck and dont worry about ARC, there just your average pond ****.;)

Hi everyone,

 

I've sent ARC a letter requesting they prove my liability for this debt using the template on this site. I'll keep you posted on what they reply.

 

I also complained to the consumer drect website prior to discovering this wonderful site and got the following response:

 

Due to the potential complexity of your dispute and the possible need for examination of the terms and conditions you have agreed to be bound by, your case is referable to Trading Standards subject to local authority provision. For the purpose of this referral we require your address coupled with a daytime telephone number please.

 

What are your thoughts on this fellow cagers?

 

Should I be dealing with this as a 2 fronted battle?

 

I'm a bit reluctant to provide any details even if it's to a government body.

 

Your thoughts and experience will be most appreciated.

 

Thanks

Well it's been 4 whole weeks since I sent ARC a letter asking to prove my liability to this debt and I have heard nothing. I'm hoping they realise I aint going down without a fight but suspect they may be busy judging by all the new threads regarding them. It's been a peacful 4 weeks though so I would like to say thankyou to all on this site who have helped. Donation to this site on payday.

 

Thanks
