    • 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

You can appeal the decision, what will your grounds be.

Just a quick question is this new thread related to your other one regarding Gross Misconduct, if so you could also ask in that thread.

Normally, you will get given written confirmation of the decision plus a copy of the interview notes allowing 14 days to appeal the decision. Did they provide you with a copy of the evidence prior to today's meeting?

Have they complied fully with their own disciplinary procedures which you should have a copy of?

Did you ask in your case for mitigating circumstances to be taken into account, ie service to the company, etc,etc,?

Ok, what grounds are you going to appeal the decision?

 

Have you made plans for both eventualities, best case scenario and worst case scenario?

No it doesn't. I was sacked for gross misconduct from a bank for leaking confidential information to a third party. The big issue in your mind is how to explain being dismissed. Remember on application forms you put down "Dismissal"...I have never ever written GROSS MISCONDUCT as a reason for me leaving the job. I worked in banking for 11 years so I couldn't leave it off my CV either. It is the way you explain is the way you deal with it. Do not appeal simply because it was Gross Misconduct. Appeal because it was a one off flippant remark caused by not sleeping well, if you want to find something to say, and was out of character for you in your years of service to the company ;)

 

EDIT: and you feel that a formal written warning is more appropriate.

I got the sack for gross misconduct a few years ago - I can tell you now it is hard work to get another job - once you tell people they just don't want to know.

 

I have been working for 30 years and nobody takes any notice of your history only the fact that you got the sack.

 

It seems a bit harsh to sack you for gross misconduct are you sure its not something else?

It took months and loads of interviews - been 4 and half years now. most employers want 5 year history so almost up . I was always honest but to no avail -I could just see there face drop when I told them - I have had to work on a much lower income for last few years. My problem was I didnt get on with one of the managers/directors so card was marked as they say. suddenly I was the worlds worst worker but I had been ok for the past 4 years!! ******s.

Kissit, you have got to remember that you were dismissed but as to the circumstances that is your version and give it a positive spin in your circumstances, "a moment of madness" which you regret and have learnt from. Great company to work for and disappointed by your own actions, etc,etc, Remember, no outstanding issues remaining line is very very effective when you say dismissal.

Most employers simply give the reference(or refuse to give a reference) with the words started on x date and was dismissed on y date.

kissit2005 - sorry to hear about this - you could get round this by applying to an employment agency for some temporary work for a while. I don't really want to put too many details here, but I know what you are going through, been there, done it, got the t-shirt, and look at me now!

 

I went to an agency specialising in my field, they placed me, I was honest with the company and six months later they took me on. I relied on former colleagues and one of the biggest private landlords in this area (my mate fortunately) to give me references, and I've never looked back.

 

You feel useless right now and still very shocked, so everything will look black to you. If you can afford to do it, take a few weeks to get over the shock, then get yourself out there to an agency and I reckon everything will be fine. You will also find out for sure who your friends really are.

 

Goodluck, it will be ok.

Fingers crossed for you, really, I do understand, and I know it makes you feel wretched and worthless. At least you have some work to keep your mind occupied. I always like to think everything happens for good reason, I'm certainly in a much better position that I was 5 years ago when I had to go through all this crap. Happier, healthier, wealthier, although i admit I am having a set to with my employers currently. But this time I know I am in the right and that keeps you going. I'm very jammy, already have a firm offer of another position if I want it with another company, they are aware of the latest load of to do, and are happy to wait for me! Everything will be fine, I promise, just make sure you hang on to your pride.

You will in time and when you start looking for work you will realise how many opportunities you might have missed because of being in your comfort zone at work.

Things do get better so stay positive because there will be taught times but once you get that new job things do get better.

So have you applied for any benefits yet?(time to move this to a hassling you thread ;) )

Are you eligible for them?
