    • EU deal replicated 'as far as possible' ... aka less than   "The British Government is continuing to work intensively on securing continuity with other countries. We have secured agreements – either signed or agreed in principle - that account for 64% of the UK’s trade with all the countries with which the UK is seeking continuity, should we leave the EU without a deal."   With what I've seen on that page I linked earlier, that would seem to be decidedly unambitious 'trade deals across the world larger than the EU
    • dx100uk - thank you for your advice.  I will send a SAR to Vanquis and really appreciate all the help on here.   I may have read your last sentence in the way that it was not intended but it has came across very judgmental and not helpful.  I have came on this site for some help, not to be judged.  If that was not your intention then I apologise as I realise text can be read in the way it was not intended.  
    • . I'm sorry but this is not correct. There is a very long established rule that you are required to exercise utmost good faith (uberrima fides) when becoming a party to any kind of insurance contract. This means that you have quite a strict duty to accept responsibility for disclosing any information which a reasonable person in your position might understand could materially affect the risk. I can imagine that the interpretation of this rule would not be applied quite so strictly to a very new and young driver – but the more that one has been driving and the more insurance policies one has held, then I think that the stricter  this rule becomes. It is also well established that one can misrepresent something simply by withholding information – by silence. I'm sorry to say that I think that this rule and the value of it is so self-evident that it is scarcely worth discussing. I wouldn't start raising this issue if I were you with insurers or the courts because you will come away with a bloody nose and loss of credibility
    • @unclebulgaria67 your point is particularly valid especially in regards to loss in the event of a claim. Irrespective of 2x SP30’s or not the vehicle is insured for its full market value. The insurers rating changes based on risk against those endorsements, where said risk calculation isn’t made available.    Also I question the validation of 22% in premium. Is that based on today’s risk profiling, or is that applied retrospectively to day 1 and can that be evidenced.    One thing that is very clear, is that to bring about any degree of misrepresentation the insurer has to have evidence that questions were asked in regards to the endorsements.   This was an auto renewal and when I’ve checked the Brokers electronic Copy on “My Policy’ at renewal, there is no section included relative to accidents in the last 5 yrs or Motoring convictions. Everything else relative to me and the named driver is listed.

    • 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

I've just registered on there - the forum is a little (lot!) less millitant (belligerant/aggressive) in it's attitude to debt collectors, but there appears

to be a lot of people receiving what I would call "questionable" advice.

 

Dare I say DCAs in disguise?

yes i sometimes look in on that site but not as good as cag! Though i have got a few helpful tips from trawling their threads sometimes,i dont think it is moderated the same as cag so more likely to get questionable posts up on it i suppose and yes they seem to be not so militant against the actions of DCAS!

You cant say boo on that site without some jumped up mod giving you a warning & the amount of rules you can fall foul of for the slightest thing is just rediculous.

At least on here, they are alot more relaxed in what is to be tolerated etc..:)

Oh & the more militant..the better ;)

Yes I am always startled by the nasty and belligerent attitude taken towards people seeking help on those forums; I generally just look at the money saving bits, but after someone on a forum here thanked me for offering them 'non judgemental' advice compared to that which he had received on MSE I took a look at the rest of the forums.

 

It made for depressing reading, talk about kick someone when they're down.

 

I hope they find their way here; I was tempted to post a link but that would probably get me banned.

 

I tend to make a point of giving those I agree with a vote of thanks and ignoring the rest.

Oddly enough CAG is referred to frequently and is often cited as a fountain of knowledge.

That's how I found CAG someone on that site referred me. I will be eternally grateful for that - never gone back though.

Which is why I've given it a pretty wide berth, and ignore their emails now.

 

In that situation you don't need judgement, assistance is more important!

I am similar to what was mentioned above...i look at the money saving sections/freebie section sometimes...but other than that, there's nothing of any interest to me & most people give incorrect advice and dont know their @ss from elbow when it comes to debt matters.

The over powering rules on MSE dont help either.:(

You are very limited in what you can say on there before a mod pounces on you etc...

Half of what we advise on here wouldnt get accepted on there & thats why some poor individual will be convinced that a DCA can legally just walk into your house etc...:mad:

They get more than their fair share of DCA trolls on there, probably because of Martin's high profile.

Oh dear, I wish I hadn't just spent a morning cruising around the MSE so called 'help' forums.

 

I never learn. I am now feeling angry and frazzled. The thing is some poor souls think it's all there is.

 

I MUST NEVER LOOK AGAIN.

They seem to be defeatists , with the names they pick .. 'unlucky jim' .. 'up to my eyes in debt' , and the threads they title .. 'hanging my head in shame ' . They have the wrong attitude to start with . I know a lot of these people have been accosted for a long while by phone and letter by these dca's , but they won't prevail with that kind of attitude . Not in fighting debt collectors or any other aspect of social interaction.

 

It seems like a breeding ground of defeatism to me .

It was from MSE that I learned of this site and never looked back , it was also the site where I first found others in debt and began to plan to get out of debt , this was helped by finding this site and I now talk quite openly of being in debt which in turn has found me many friends most of which have joined CAG .

While I agree with you, it's still all too easy to get into that mindset when you find yourself in that situation.

 

That's what depresses me about MSE, because it seems Martin's heart is in the right place, and a lot of people seem unaware of the options that are available and what they can do...
