    • I have debts of my own and will sort another advice separate for them as now I’m not working and a full time carer for wife & daughter I’m struggling to pay them so will want advice on letters to send them for reduced payments etc But for now I need to know what to do about PayPal as its really making me worry and is making me ill but ive got to try be strong and put on brave face for wife & daughter I dont want them picking up on something is wrong & worrying me
    • Help & Advice wanted on PayPal debt please I had someone staying with me for a while before they moved away and they had access to my PayPal account and was buying a few things and giving me the money no problem but then unknown to me until it was to late they had a gambling problem also and last off used my PayPal to fund online gambling . They ended up using £5,000 through PayPal and the first I knew was when I went to do some online banking and seen £1200 went out of my bank for PayPal so I looked straightaway and stopped / cancelled my bank letting PayPal take from my account . Then I logged on to PayPal and seen transactions 1 after another this going to total the £5,000 so I unlinked my bank & cards from PayPal account . Then nearly 2 weeks after I started getting emails and messages saying my account was in negative balance for £3,800 because they already had the £1200 . I’m in a bit of debt anyway and struggling so for this to happen left me feeling very ill to find they have spent thousands and left me without anything no money to live on or feed family even at the time as that £1200 that was took out of my account was all I had, I’m very annoyed and feeling very mad and very ill. Ive no idea how I can put this right as got no work no money because My wife got struck down with illness and disabled and I also have special needs daughter so I’m now a full time carer for both wife and daughter . I need to sort this but dont know how or best way to go about it. Ive had emails from PayPal and ive replied and explained plus went on live chat etc and asked for it to be logged and for them to please come to some payment agreement even though I cant afford it I know I got to put things right somehow but had no joy in chat and was just told pay into PayPal what I owe. So again I get emails and I reply but not getting any reply back to my emails . Ive not told my ill disabled wife about this right now as it would push her over the top and make her more ill thinking about it and its her Nephew to top things off so I know it would destroy her . Ive tried talking to someone with PayPal in live chat etc and emails as said asked if it can be logged showing ive been in touch regarding this matter and need to try sort it and also asked for them to contact me in writing so hopefully we can come to some sort of agreement to put this right but so far its been about 31 days now since account been in negative and ive had no phone calls or letters from them yet So what can I do and whats best way to deal with this I’m trying to pursue the person for these funds as we speak but know I’m not going to get anywhere

    • 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

My father died last year which his family believe is because of a lack of duty of care and just plain neglect.


He had underlying health problems, diabetes, CABG following a heart attack in 1990, and left ventricle dysfunction, which was moderate at the beginning of last year when he had his stents checked and had a mild heart attack. His cardiologist said he didnt need to see him for another six months. My father knew he wouldnt live for another 10 years, but we and he had been told another five would be more estimable.


In july 2008 he went to his diabetic foot nurse and she found a small mark on one of his toes, eventually it lead to him having two toes amputated, (thats another issue because it caused osteomyelitis which spread badly) because he was off his feet he began to swell up and had symptoms of heart failure, became disorentated and short of breath. Because no one bothers to check patients over the weekend (and i have the notes and every weekend my father was only checked by the ward nurse - bp checks only) he got so bad he had to have a blood transfusion x2 the next week.


He was transferred to the cardiac centre and we were pleased that he was finally going to get the care he deserved, he died in the early hours of November 20th 2008 aged 69 years, his CABG was totally blocked (even tho he had had a angiogram and echocardiagam done within the last two days which picked up nothing - but i personally dont think the doctor looked at them) The ward sister was in shock she couldnt believe he had died, we saw a registrar after his death who said after looking at the test results that my fatehrs heart was in very bad shape and he was dying, why werent we told this a few days earlier?? Why couldnt we prepare ourselves? To say goodbye to a really amazing father, husband, grandfather? Why wasnt he in the intensive care on a life support machine? He was in a side room on 'infrequent obs' he hadnt had an ECG done in 12 days before his death where as before he had them everyday.


Also the most hurtful thing, they told us he died in his sleep, they went in and found him dead. AFter christmas I requested the notes to start the complaints procedure and found that he wasnt dead when they found him, they had the whole team in working on him for 20 minutes, can you imagine how we feel? To know that my father didnt have the peaceful end that we thought, they lied to us - I always told them 'just give it to us straight, no namby pamby stuff' and they lied through and through. We are all still devastated and in such grief at how he died.

Also i meant to say the Cardiologist saw him as an outpatient two months and 5 days before he died and said to him (i have the letter) 'youre doing very well, i dont need to see you for another year' !!!

Hi Kathryn

so sorry to hear about your dad,That was awful,I dont think a lot of doctors are all that good now and it is shocking what happened to him but i can quite believe it as my OH has a heart problem and though he had an angioplasty they kept saying his problem was sorted and he should be abe to go back tp work but my OH still felt very poorly .But the arrogant cardiologist refused to believe him and kep telling him it was all in the mind:mad:and just to go away and exercise that he did not need any treatment ,However after about a year of all this my OH insisted they give him an exercise stress test and after that they changed their tune and said that he needed a bypass yes he still not in a very good way.The sad thing is that now my OH has lost all faith in doctors and want let them near him to do any procedures as he lost all his trust and respect for them and just controls condition with tablets but has a lot of angina ,The cardillogist did not even have the grace to aplogise to him.If he had taken their advice and carried on execising he would have probably given himself another heart attack the state of his heart ateries,So i can quite believe it.

Im happy to help with support and my own opinions but as i have no legal qualifications If I offer any thoughts to your problems please take it as from my life experience only and not of any legal standing. Always take further advice from the legal experts in your final action,

Guest Old_andrew2018

You have been through quite a difficult time, the question you pose about why was he not ventilation, IMHO this would not have prevented his heart failure.

Having been through a similar thing with my own father nearly twenty years ago, can I advise that you get the information, and plan what questions you need to ask.
