    • Well, you've highlighted the problem yourself, whatever you decide will carry some risk.   However, I would think the risk of a default judgement & CCJ is to be avoided at all costs and the least worse thing would be to write them a two-line letter with their reference number and your new address.   As usual, any details you can give us on the forum sticky would be useful for the future      
    • That the value I paid for.. 250..  The cctv footage it's archived. 2 of them.. 
    • No copy of signature.. Just a name "jolly"... On tracking no proof of signature 
    • Thanks for the message that is what I thought. In the mean time they have sent another message, below, I can’t follow up with Amazon until 48 hours. But I will go armed.    “Your return period is 30 days with ourselves and then you are covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.”    
    • OK, I found the letter I was looking for:     Dear Sir/Madam,   Reference: [order number]   On [date], I placed an order for a [item] and it was delivered by you on [date].   I have discovered that the [item] has the following problem: [give details].   The Consumer Rights Act 2015 makes it an implied term of the contract that goods be as described, of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.    Any returns policy that says I have to cover the cost of returning items must only relate to the situation where I change my mind about the item ordered and not where there is a problem with the item.    I should not lose out financially as a result of your breach of contract and accordingly all costs of returning the item should be met by you.    I also require you to confirm you will arrange for [the item] to be collected.   I look forward to hearing from you.   Yours faithfully, [Your name]

    • 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

I desperatly want to leave the UK.


My life here (30 years) has been an utter dissaster, I was raised in the poorest districts of south London with no prospects or education in a broken home,

I've spent 10 years unemployed, 5 years homeless, I've been attacked on several occasions, attempted suicide, suffered severe mental breakdowns, herrasment,

drug addiction and my fammily have rejected me, I gave this country my best shot, everything I could but whatever I do I

can't get anywhere, it's too much of a struggle, I'm litaraly hanging on by the skin of my teath, I feel like this country has ruined my life.


I want to look after what little sannity I have left by getting out of the UK and moving to somewhere I can live

a respectable life, this seems impossible to do however as I am on sickness bennefits and am unable to work.


Can I transfer my bennefits to another EU country? The Netherlands for example? I am in recipt of IS, DLA and Incapacity Bennefit.

Thankyou, I appreciate it.


I know this is a difficult subject and it may be some time before someone is able to reply, I

have been digging but the documentation I've found so far doesn't make much sense to me.

Mind, not sure if this will help, but it gives some info on what benefits you can still claim whilst abroad:


Britons Living Abroad


and this link for Taking disability benefits abroad

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has decided that DLA care component is considered to be a sickness benefit and may be paid to a person who leaves the UK to live in another EEA state or Switzerland or is already living in another EEA state or Switzerland (endnote 21). The decision does not apply to the mobility component of DLA. It is possible, in some circumstances, for a claimant to continue to receive the care component of DLA when s/he moves to live in another EEA state or Switzerland or to make a new or repeat claim for DLA care component if already living in another EEA state or Switzerland.

Thanks for all the pointers, it sounds like the majority of the bennefits I receive now would have to be provided by the country I move too.


I have a feeling this is going to be very difficult and I probably wont get as much as I do currently.

Might be a little less but if your standard of living increases it will be worth it :)
