    • 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

Where I lived before we had Virgin TV BB and Phone. In my new place the Cable stops at the end of our road and goes no further. It looks like we shall never get Virgin cable so I'm stuck with Freeview. Does anyone know if VM have any plans to extend the cable nework? I live in an area that had one of the very early cabled systems. Judging by the rust on the box plate covers in the pavement!

I live in south east essex, one of the first areas to get cable (telewest as it was then, now virgin). My street was one of the first to be cabled and Ive been happy with it for many years.

 

However my brother moved nearby and it that area the local council wouldnt allow Telewest to dig up their lovely paving stones to lay the cable, this is quite common.

 

Also if there is 1 property down a mile long unmade road, Virgin are not going to make the effort and expense just to connect 1 person !

 

One of the few draw backs with cable.

 

To answer your actual question, Im unaware of Virgin cabling more areas, apart from the initial burst of cabling, I guess you could phone/email ask them.

Yes it is very frustating to be so near yet so far! But our town has a very high housing density and no nice paving! In fact you can still see the cobble stones under the tarmac on the roads! The town has poor tv reception especially if a large ship docks in the harbour! Thats why cable was installed in the first place!

As already noted, apart from the original NTL/TW (and other incumbents) after the initial cable build out, there has been no further 'roll out' to new areas or to infill where arears were only partially served.

 

There have been cases where new estates HAVE been hooked up, but this was done by the developers at their expense. Virgin have NEVER announced expansion of their network and until they get profitible again, they probably not even consider it.
