    • 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

hiya all

 

bit of a pickle, misunderstood that the cross networks was not really unlimited thus now ended up with huge bill,

 

understand our fault but really am so cross that orange didnt give us a bit of a warning that could have been superb customer service as all previous years we have always stuck to the payment amount

have tried to call and speak with customer collections and basically they will only set up a payment plan min about 15.00 i asked for only about 10 on a weekly basis then they will stop the monthly charge, but not open the line up until full bill paid

 

also if we dont pay what they want will be passed to debt coll agency

 

i got really cross at this point, as stated how we were not informed of the bill increasing so much and that i think to be told that its this amount ie 15.00 or nothing to set up the payment plan will only cause us more debt in the long run as then will affect our credit file and also be sold to a debt collection agency, i advised that i will be informing my mp about this - their actions would cause hardship and also incur me more debt

 

our credit file is shot so what other options do i have but i think i will just get their terms and conditions thrown at us and therefore we are in a bit of a pickle still

 

will not give access to the mobile phone to make calls on a seperate payment plan, so thus have to clear the debt before they connect us again

 

all this after 10 years and 3 mobile contracts with orange

 

others please beware i want to write to put my feedback to them, but what is best to say?

 

your thoughts appreciated cheers angel x

Almost without exception, mobile networks are fairly inflexible when the consumers make a mistake. At least you did make the calls - the amount they chargew is always a minimum ONLY, it can always be higher - and when you think about it, all it takes if a few Premium SMS texts and you're off and running with high charges to have no hope of controlling. Or if you're phone is stolen, again until you arrange blocking, you are responsible for all costs even though you never made any calls.

 

Past custom is never of any interest to them - they have a problem they need resolved, and if you fit in with their proposals, you have a chance to redeem yourself, but if you cannot, you'll be dumped, They do not negotiate, as their computer provides the calculations that will be accepted, and if you're late with that they'll end the arrangement and it's off to the DCA.

 

The only solution for the future is NOT to have a phone contract. PAYG (Like ASDA Mobile) keep your outgoings limited to the credit you have left on your account.

and if when you go payg with the same number, they start sprouting crap about having to have another simcard & they cannot make your current one payg must now pay £15. tell 'em thats rubbish.

 

sadly myself and 3 others at work got stung by this until i got ahold of a supervisor in retentions dept. excuse was the 'script' on the callcentre operators screen was wrong!

 

we got all the £15's refunded and a £20 vouncher each as a sorry.

You can avoid this by porting you number to a different network (from Orange to, say ASDA who will restart your number on their service using the Vodafone network. Just be sure your handset is (or can be) unlocked to allow use of another network. Saves a lot of hassle, and cuts the cord cleanly!
