    • Notice Before Action Dear Sir/madam You have lost the following items. 1)      P2G72688861 2)      P2G73791631 3)      P2G74330511 I understand you eventually accepted liability for these lost items and have agreed to reimburse the postage costs but not the values. You suggest this is due to my failing to take out additional insurance.   I am not prepared to accept your position and shall be issuing a summons on 18th August for £180, should you choose not to reimburse the values allocated to the items you have lost. In particular: Item 1) This parcel was damaged by your courier and rejected by the addressee. It appears rather than return the parcel and contents to me, your courier decided to throw the item away. Thus the item has become lost, and therefore (due to my not paying extra for insurance against loss), you have chosen not to compensate. Do you seriously expect to ‘lose’ an item on purpose by throwing it away, and then claim it has been lost and therefore not covered? Item 2) This parcel was lost and I made a claim. During the period of claim, the parcel was found and began to track. Ultimately being delivered (according to an email to the addressee, at 1.41 am 19 July 2020). Clearly the parcel was not delivered at such a time. You have subsequently suggested delivery was at a different time. Despite these suggestions of proper delivery, you have been unable to prove delivery at all, the addressee has confirmed he has not received the item and you have accepted the item is lost.  I do not accept you can be so careless as to lose an item twice. When I purchased this sending through P2G, I selected Parcelforce 48 as the courier. This service has a compensation value of up to £100 for loss. This is why I selected them. It appears however, you chose not to purchase this service from Parcelforce, but an alternative service purporting to be Parcelforce 48, but excluding the standard compensation.  This is not what I had purchased. I do not accept your claim that I should have paid extra for insurance for you to insure, when I had already purchased a service which carried automatic insurance. Further, the service was supposed to be a 48 hour service. The parcel was not collected within the 48 hour period, let alone delivered within it.  I consider the delays in ensuring delivery within the expected timeframe would have contributed to the loss of this item. I hold you responsible for the loss.   Item 3) This item was also subject to a claim for loss. During your investigations, this item was also found and started to track. Messages advising  "Enquiry resolved", "INT Hold" and "Out for delivery”, suggest the item had eventually been found. I do not accept you can be so careless as to find a lost item and subsequently lose it again, regardless of whether I had purchased additional insured. Indeed, the option to purchase such insurance was not available as the item appears to have been excluded from such insurance.   Yours faithfully

    • 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 All,

 

Back in May (when i lost my job) i contacted all our creditors advising them that we would be unable to make our regular payments and enclosed a budget sheet (drawn up with advise from CCCS) and an offer of repayment (good will payment)

 

Barclaycard were offered £1 as our budget sheet gave us a negative ballance of -£25.00

 

We recieved a response to this letter advising us that the £1 offer was insufficiant and that before they would be able to accept any token payment less than the amount required, they would need to recieve a copy of our budget sheet.

 

We re-sent a budget sheet and again highlighted our -£25 ballance and the £1 offer we were making....

 

ok... all gone very quiet.... until

 

Today my wife recieved a letter advising that Barclaycard have exercised their (legal) right to offset funds from our Barlcays current account in order to clear the outstanding amount payable (£55 ish) :mad::mad:

 

Are they allowed to do this if they are aware of our circumstances and have recieved a budget sheet. Can i stop any future payments being taken this way?

Yes, I'm afraid the banks are allowed to use the "right to set off" rules which date back hundreds of years apparently. If you are still in debt to Barclays you need to set up a parachute account with another bank asap and transfer all incomings to that bank.. MAKE SURE its not a bank connected to any form of debt you owe.

Barclayshark have just done this to me, too, and plundered the entire contents of my current account, even though the Barclaycard is in dispute!

 

This would seem to be their latest tactic. The revised T&C's they sent out with the July current acount statements emphasise this, but even though the new T&Cs don't come into effect until October it would seem Barclays are jumping the gun and applying this now.

 

When I got into financial difficulties last year I sought advice from my local CAB who assured me that Barclays credit and banking arms are separate and never work together. That may have been true once, but no more. I'm seeing the manager of another bank (one I have no connection with) later today to open up a basic account to stop Barclays from helping themselves again. I should have done it sooner.

 

A complaint to the FOS might help if (for example) the money was taken from a joint account and the BC is just in your name. I found this site with more details. banking: firms' right of 'set off'

 

I'm afraid you're in for a hard time with BC. Even though you bank with them and they know your financial position better than anyone, you'll find them very unreasonable.

They've had, and used, the "Right of Set Off" for ages and that FOS atricle is from 2004.
