    • Sorry, trying to catch up with all the questions.. I paid by BACS - it was the only option I was given. They are based in Wallasey, Wirral, and I think they have been there for some time.  I don't think they have disappeared.
    • The social worker saw some of the photographs.  Because of the timing, holidays, everyone busy etc she said she would go by my judgement as to whether Friend should be allowed home (This was before the service was carried out)  I sent her some photos but neither of us mentioned Friend not coming home - nobody wanted him to have to stay in the care home any longer, it was totally inappropriate.  She knew I was going to take some action with regard to the service, but we didn't speak again.  
    • Hi, yes, those are the people.   It's too late to ask SS to inspect.  This all happened in a big rush between xmas and new year; I complained to the woman I'd been dealing with, she liaised with the MD and came back with the £100 offer, took a couple of days, I refused, she then said I needed to contac the MD. When I emailed him, I got the out of office message back, and then, eventually, the offer of £150 which he deposited, without my agreement, into my account..  So it all took weeks.  I have plenty of photos though.
    • Yes that sounds correct Commensurate use
    • I don’t have the details to hand, they’ll be on an old IDE hard disk from my old computer and I’ll need to buy an adapter to access those files.   But from memory, I think the case was around 2016 in an English county court. A lawyer was posting progress on a case he was working on, I can’t remember which forum, arguing that Erudios DAF forms breeched unfair contract law.   Erudio settled the matter out of court just before the case was heard when the lawyers client accepted an offer to backdate all his deferments and make changes to future DAF forms.   Very soon after all the posts relating to the case were removed from the forum, I suspect as part of the settlement deal with Erudio.   TBH I wasn’t sure at the time that I was going to be able to use this anyway, given that there was no ruling on the case to refer to.   I just wanted to make them aware that I knew they had granted deferment to somebody who hadn’t used their DAF.   I turned 50 in February 2018.   Strangely, I can’t find a copy of the default notice or their final response.   I say strangely because I have what I thought were all my Erudio letters in a file in date order.   I can only think therefore that they were sent by email and I did have a period were I had to switch email providers and email addresses because emails were being lost, and then when I switched the previous provider deleted everything.   I did manage to backup some of those emails before the previous provider deleted them, but again they would be on my old IDE hard disk, so I don’t have access to them right now.   Sorry I know this isn’t much help.   How essential are these letters?

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

'No further action'

 

My case has been NFA'd. I received a phone call at about 9 a.m. today from Basingstoke Police Station to say that I do not need to surrender my bail at noon as my case is now marked 'no further action'.

 

So my prediction turned out to be correct:

 

My guess is that this is not going anywhere. I do not expect to be charged with any criminal offence.

 

I have now spent seven months under police investigation because of this lying DWP employee (five previously plus two because of this latest malicious complaint). I still have a clean police record.

 

Look, here come those cheerleaders again ...

have you tried reporting all this to the local media?

The Basingstoke Gazette is pretty much pro-Tory and equating 'jobless = lazy scrounger', so I wouldn't expect much from them.

 

EDIT: The Basingstoke Gazette is very proud of hosting Maria 'Killer' Miller, just to give you the tone of the paper.

What an enlighten and interesting read. I stumbled across this thread while trying to do some research of my own in regards to false accusations by the DWP.

 

FitzWilliam I admire your persistence for justice against the seemingly impossible.

 

Although my case is very different I feel the way i have been treated is outrageous, so have joined this forum in the hope of receiving some help, as to be honest I haven't a clue where to start or what to do.

Hi!

 

Member FitzWilliam, I admire you for your supreme efforts in holding your head up against one of the most bullying, un-supportive, selfish and self-opinionated organisations/quangos we have ever had to suffer in living memory, namely the dwp!!! (They don't even deserve capital letters!!!!)

 

Altho' I have never had the need to use Alton, Totton or Basingstoke job-centres, reading your story suggests this vicious and spiteful dwp employee and former guard sounds just like the sort of person to take one look at me and accuse me of goodness-knows-what!

 

Kudos also goes to that excellent young Pupil Barrister who did such a good job in defending both yourself and your innocent friend in court and helped clear you both!!!

 

I wish you all the best to both yourself and your friend for the future and hope neither of you ever has to face this type of criminal harassment and victimisation again!
