    • read it proprly.. it doesn't say WILL anything and original creditors don't do court as they don't want the judge delving into their business model nor the bad publicity.   as for the FOS you just have to let it run. yours is a very short time since yo put it into them typically it always takes 6-9mts normally before they move on anything though they usually send you an ACK they have the complaint.        
    • Since the last post on this thread I have sent a complaint to the FOS but have not heard anything from them as yet either, I'm guessing they're rather snowed under and on reduced staff so no real surprise.   Still had nothing approaching help from lending stream but today they emailed me default notices for the loans, again demanding I phone them and pay up in full or they will begin court proceedings.   Any advice as to how I should proceed please?
    • Hi,   I received two PCNs in October 2019 from Havering Council. All the below applies to both PCNs, as the correspondences were at the same time:   Fast forward to February 2020, I file witness statements on grounds that I made representations within 28 days but did not receive a rejection notice.   The TEC cancelled charges.   Havering write to me asking for supporting evidence of representations that I made.   I email them screenshots with timestamps of the representations.   In early March Havering reply to me by email 'confirming receipt of email and both cases are now on hold pending an investigation. Please allow time for a full response to be sent.'   Fast forward to 18th June Havering write to me the attached:  Havering Charge Certificate.pdf   Now, it seems as though the sender of this letter is not up to date with both cases and is unaware of the TEC's decisions, as well as the email correspondence.   My questions are, 1) What should I do next? and 2) Is there a way to use their misstep to avoid paying for the PCN entirely?   Thank you.

    • 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

Okay, I won at ET . . . so how come the bailiff can't get my money?

I've written about this case before on here and received loads of good advice. Now I am stuck again and would like some help if possible.


Last year I won at ET. My former employers were found to owe me the bonus that was in my contract. Great - or so I thought.


I keep getting notes from the bailiff to say that they have visited the premises and cannot get them to pay.


what can I do? I thought bailiffs had ways of seizing goods etc in order to get them to pay up. I've heard of cases of them climbing through windows and seizing goods. The business I worked at you can walk straight through the door without any security. What is the procedure that they must go through?


Or is there anything else more I can do?


All help will be appreciated - it is 18 months on and I thought this would all be over by now.

Its sad but there are many stories of ET awards not being paid, and its useful to be aware of this.

In answer to your question about the seizure of goods, I wonder if goods on your ex-employers premises actually belong to them, if they are subject to a leasing agreement then they cant be taken.

If many years ago I worked for a TV rental company, on the back of each receiver was a large yellow sticker with wording similar to this "Property of EXY Ltd and not for resale purposes".

I was lead to believe that a bailiff seeing this notice would leave the set in place.

I have never dealt with an Employment Tribunal, but consider it to be similar to a court.If that is the case, then surely you can get a "warrant of execution" srved on the employer for the money to be pid, and if it isn't then the bailiff acts accordingly.I may be wrong, but it is worth asking about this.

Hi iolande


Sorry about not fully explaining why difficulties exist in receiving ET awards, this link from the CAB web-page explains



I also did not ask an obvious question did you need to get a county court judgement

Hi - first of all thanks for all your replies


I have both the ET judgement, the county court judgement and the warrant of execution. I guess I am just frustrated that the bailiff can't seem to get anything out of them - there is no security in the building - you can just walk right in, and there are plenty of goods there that aren't on hire-purchase. As I have said, it has been dragging out for the last 18 months and it's just not fair :(
