    • Ok thanks guys for all the help & advice I think I will go the DRO option but will open a new bank account somewhere else first etc.  The only other things im little worried about is reading on the DRO it says about I wont be able to apply for credit but what about things like my car insurance as thats classed as credit paying it monthly Plus they say i must not have assets or car worth over £1,000 so what about things like my car worth around 2.5k and as said before when my father passed away he left me his camper that I cant part with its worth about 4k and what about things in house and jewellery etc ?? Can they come to house and check and so on
    • threads merged  please keep to one thread per issue.   dx  
    • 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

I got a letter today from our car insurers saying a claim has been intimated against us.

 

Having asked my wife about any incidents to which we have had none,

i phoned our insurance company who have said they have been approached by a solicitor regards a claim of an incident back in February of this year.

 

Again we have absolutely no recollection of an incident at all.

Our insurance company have said they will investigate,

require proof of incident etc etc.

 

Our insurance company also stated the details they have regards this are very basic and sketchy at this present time.

 

So.......

 

a) Why has it taken until now before our insurance company has been contacted.6 months??

 

b) If we have no recollection of an incident , then where do we stand.

 

It all sounds a bit dubious to me really. Any advice or thoughts?

you just have to wait and challenge the allegations when they come in. Usually they are always something trivial (supermarket car parks etc) "you scuffed my bumper,i now have whiplash";)

 

in answer to your q`s

A) because they have been approached by an ambulance chaser

B) they have to provide evidence that you were involved etc if your 100% you have not been in an incident,nothing to worry about.

 

Could be the third part has taken the reg number incorrectly and has come up with yours.

 

Have your ins company given your the circumstances of the claim?

No, the insurance company we are with is DL, they have no real details at this point, they are stating they have just recieved a letter from the claimants solicitor so they wrote to us asking what the incident was, they also said the same as you above that it could be a mistaken reg number.

 

To which we said there was no incident, my wife drives the vehicle and is far too honest for her own good really and would have definitely reported any incident at all, no matter how trivial, i am 100% sure of that without question.

 

Will wait and see what happens??

 

Still puzzled as to why they have taken 6 months before contacting our insurers whoever they are?

It could easily be that someone got the wrong registration number - it happens quite a bit.

 

Simply tell your insurer that you dispute any claim and if they persist, ask for the details the TP has on you - make / model of car, colour etc. DL should of course already have this, but they will undoubtedly cite the DPA as grounds for not telling you what someone else has said about you.

Dont worry about it, if your insurer is DL then nothing to worry, I had a similiar case, and my insurer is DL, there came round and asked a few questions checked the car out for damage, I must say the questions was like a interrogation but if you answer with the truth you got nothing to worry about, there just want to make sure no one is lying about it. in my case its been a year now and the other party who put the claim through came up with no evidence, and the claim should close down this month, need to ring them.

 

nothing to worry about, have a quick check of the car to see if any damaged if not, just stand firm and dispute, also has DL asked for the excess?? the answer should be no, and will always be no in this case.

Wife's insurance renewal has just come through and they have taken off 2 years No Claims, so i phoned them up as the premium is now higher. They said its because of this alleged claim against us which they are still investigating. Now i don't understand this as they have NOT paid out anything and the claim is still alleged and being investigated so how come the No Claims has been affected??????????????

Yeah that sucks - they always do that. Guilty until proven innocent. They should refund the overpayment if the claim is thrown out or settled in your favour though. Ask for clarification.

 

I would complain direct to the top of the company and get them to sort it out pronto. Can the other party even correctly identify the make/model/colour of your car for example?

You can get colour/model quite easily if you have reg/make...

Our insurance company are writing to them to ask that , they want description of the driver (us), make/model/colour of vehicle (ours), location of alleged claim/incident and confirmation of the name of the driver as the other party has stated a name to our insurers that was driving our car and our insurers have said that it sounds nothing like mine or my wifes names.

 

So i think its a mistaken id?
