    • ok again thanks for all advice , im going to continue and struggle on paying the wifes debts and maybe look at getting reduced payments but as for mine i think ill go down the DRO route and try get it sorted but will see and open new bank account somewhere first
    • 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.

    • 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. I already have one claim just going to the ombudsman with First Plus. I have discovered however that;

 

My husband took PPI on a loan in 05 with First Plus which we consolidated in 06 (the 06 one is the one underway with the Ombudsman).

 

He paid 7k in PPI on this 05 loan.

 

When consolidated less than a year later he got nothing back. Just a new PPI on the new loan.

 

I have done my SAR and my first letter to First Plus but they have come back with this and I don't know what to do....

 

I note from our records that the loan and Payment Protection Insurance we sold by Freedom Finance Ltd. Unfortunately this means that Firstplus does not have access to the telephone calls made at the time of the application. I am therefore unable to investigate the sale of the insurance. I have however passed details of your concerns to the complaints team at Freedom Finance. As they are responsible for the sale, they will investigate and respond in line with the current complaint procedures.

 

It then goes on to say if I want to talk about this further, am disattisfied with the response or wish to escalate internally, then I am to call them. I have 8 weeks to respond.

 

Now, yes I did go through FF on this first loan and PPI but my gripe is that First Plus didnt refund any of the 7k PPI after less than one year of use when the loan was consolidated.

 

Do I go to Freedom, do I go back to First Plus or do I wait for Freedom to come to me.

 

Please help!

What header is on the Consumer Credit Agreement for the first loan in 2005?

 

If it is First Plus as I suspect it will be then go for them for a refund and as you already have a complaint in with the FOS give them a quick call and tell them what you have discovered. IE an earlier loan refinanced by the second loan that you have submitted a claim for. Tell them there appears to have been no PPI refund on refinancing to the second loan. I am sure they will be very interested.

 

If however the CCA is headed with Freedom Finance which I doubt then you should start a separate claim against Freedom Finance for mis-selling on the first loan.

 

Do you have the CCAs on both loans?

PPI Successes

PPI 4 settlements on 9 loans. FOS involvement on 7 added on the 8 % Statutory interest another 30% to both.

Please do not PM me for advice as it may be sometime before I can respond.

 

Keep at them. Do not give way and do not accept all they tell you, they will delay and stall for as long as they can to prevent repaying you your mis-sold PPI.

Hi thanks for your help. I have the CCA for both loans and both are entitled First Plus.

 

I have had a letter from Freedom this morning asking me seven questions. They state they will officially acknowledge my complaint when I answer them.

 

1. on what basis do you believe that the PPI was misold

2. Why do you think the advice was incorrect

3. What did the advisor say to give you the impression that the PPI was not optional

4. What did the advisor say that implied that taking the policy would assist your credit application (I never mentioned this in my letter)

5. What did you tell our advisor regarding your existing levels of cover and why do you believe that this cover would have been sufficient to protect your loan

6. On what grounds do you base your allegation that out advisor had no financial background

7. Why were you not aware that the PPI was added to your loan and would incur interest? This was clearly stated on the statement of price sent to you and the credit agreement that you signed.

 

Now I answered most of these questions in the letter I originally sent to First Plus. Where do I go now? My claim with the FSO has only just gone in for the other PPI. It's all very confusing.

 

Thank you for helping

To help you answer those questions you will need to do some homework. Please have a look through these links and see if your circumstances fit in with any of the mis-selling factors.

You can answer freedom and see what they come up with but IMO concentrate on the name on the Consumer Credit Agreement it was First Plus and not freedom.

Hi thanks for your help again.

 

I have already covered 99% of these points in my original letter to First Plus which they say they have seen at Freedom.

 

I have rehashed the letter and will send it tomorrow. I suspect it will come back with either a general no or a re-direction back to First Plus.

 

I also have an Egg card PPI which I am in the middle of. They have said that my husband must have ticked the box on the online application in 2001 and that cannot be altered by egg staff but he didn't know he had it. I deal with all the payments and banking etc and assumed he knew about the PPI when the online statements came in (I checked them not him). The thing is he had a pre-existing medical condition which would surely have disallowed a claim? The have sent me the ombudsman booklet but I have not told them about the medical thing yet. Do I go back to them with it or go straight to the ombudsman?

 

Im so grateful for any advice, getting a bit over my head now and stress is creeping in.

This would as you suggest would most likely have precluded him from making a claim but you would be advised to try and get a copy of the terms and conditions applicable to the card at the time it was taken out.

 

If you have certified proof of a pre existing medical condition then you should send them a copy it could make them take notice of your claim.
