    • Nothing to do with your own Bank.     Try to withdraw the money from Parentpay early next week and if no joy contact them.   It may be that the money is showing, but has not fully cleared on their system,
    • Hi all,   Just an update with contractual terms. These terms are from a contract at a similar time to when Tracey started as we think they have changed since.   The contract reads as follows:   Termination of employment  Xxxxxxx (Nursery) will provide written notice of termination of your employment in accordance with statutory requirement (currently 1 week’s notice for each year of continuous service, up to a maximum 12 week’s notice).   Once you have successfully completed your probationary period for the company you are required to give 1 month’s written notice of termination of employment.   Regards   Matt             
    • Thanks for helping with the post;   Still waiting for a reply from the DPD.
    • I thank the Consumer Action Group Members for getting me this far in my case which is still in progress.   Situation: The Court has reversed earlier permission for me to rely on witness summaries.    The question upon which I am seeking help, please,  is - do I need to bother myself as to why the Court has reversed permission to rely on witness summaries?  If so, what line of logic or law can might I follow because clearly, the Court has said one thing and then another a few weeks later, of its own motion, the Court has reversed the earlier decision. I find this development quite extraordinary in the sense that as a result of being granted permission earlier, I served the three Witness Summons which had the Court stamp.   Background Having given me permission to serve 'Witness Summons' which I served on 3 hostile witnesses several weeks ago, the Court has now reversed it's earlier decision, and refused me permission to rely on 'witness summaries' pursuant to paragraph 32.9(2), citing that I have not shown steps taken to obtain witness statements from the 3 hostile witnesses.  I however, made two attempts to talk to the hostile witnesses who have been non responsive and I can evidence this.   I would be immensely grateful for some steer from Forum Members, please.
    • Pubs all seem to be doing a roaring trade around here. It does make me feel uncomfortable but At least they are finally making some money. Our area, the South West never really got hit badly by the pandemic. Wiltshire has regularly seeing zero confirmed cases and deaths. So we will have to see how opening pubs really pans out!

    • 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

When I got home this morning I had a hand delivered letter, for home attendance from philips.

 

This letter was for someone who doesn't live here and someone I have never even heard of.

 

I phoned the company, stated that I have never heard of the guy they were looking for, I told them that I had a few letters in the past for this guy and always returned them not known at this address. I have held the tenancy for my place for over 16 years and this guy has never lived here (the person here before me was a sweet old lady).

 

I told them that if the baliffs were to keep knocking at my door after I have told them I have not heard of this guy then I will go to the police.

 

I have been told I have to fill some form in and send back to them, by law.

 

Do I really have to fill this form in? I have read many horror stories (on here and else where) about debt companies and I would rather not have anything to do with them. I'm not sure I want them having my name and address. My telephone number is ex directory and I have been removed from the electorial roll due to people in my past so I am very wary about giving out my name and address.

 

Extra information - on reading the letter again after reading through some of the posts on here, Philips is the baliff service, there client name is BCW (another post included BCW and it reminded me to look) not sure if this makes any difference.

Absolutely not! Don't fill in anything, report them to the OFT, and if they do knock on your door, take their photograph and call the Police, the bloody cheek of it:-x


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

DO NOT FILL IN ANY FORMS! It sounds like a fishing trip on the part of the DCA. They have no right to your information especially if you have no legal contract with them. Someone phoned me looking for a previous tennet - wanted me to prove that I was not them by sending Birth certificat and tennacy agrement etc. Told them to get stuffed - never heard any more.They are all getting desperate now that we know our rights more. Thanks to Cag and other sites. If anyone does come to your door tell the to Foxtrot Oscar- they have no right to visit you unannounced.
