    • Well, you've highlighted the problem yourself, whatever you decide will carry some risk.   However, I would think the risk of a default judgement & CCJ is to be avoided at all costs and the least worse thing would be to write them a two-line letter with their reference number and your new address.   As usual, any details you can give us on the forum sticky would be useful for the future

    • Thanks for the message that is what I thought. In the mean time they have sent another message, below, I can’t follow up with Amazon until 48 hours. But I will go armed.    “Your return period is 30 days with ourselves and then you are covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.”    
    • OK, I found the letter I was looking for:     Dear Sir/Madam,   Reference: [order number]   On [date], I placed an order for a [item] and it was delivered by you on [date].   I have discovered that the [item] has the following problem: [give details].   The Consumer Rights Act 2015 makes it an implied term of the contract that goods be as described, of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.    Any returns policy that says I have to cover the cost of returning items must only relate to the situation where I change my mind about the item ordered and not where there is a problem with the item.    I should not lose out financially as a result of your breach of contract and accordingly all costs of returning the item should be met by you.    I also require you to confirm you will arrange for [the item] to be collected.   I look forward to hearing from you.   Yours faithfully, [Your name]

    • 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 wife is worried that if we do not pay our non-priority debts, we will be sent to prison.

 

Can anyone tell us if this is possible?

No, this is not possible unless you are talking about Council Tax?

OMG no debtors prison doesn't exist any more! Hasn't for decades!

 

The worst they can do, if you completely point blank ignore all your non-priority debts, for years on end, worst case scenario one year, they can declare you bankrupt and strip your assets, writing off the debt in the process. But that's absolutely worst case.

 

Little more info would be great, we can advise the best approach to take ;)

I didn't think they could send us to prison, but my wife (from a foreign country) was worried about it.

 

Thank you. This will put her mind at rest.

 

All of the details are here:

We don't intend to refuse to pay, in fact we have sent out a spreadhseet showing exactly how much we can afford each month for each creditor. Only trouble is, we had to replace our boiler earlier this month, which put us overdrawn by about £3K, and I am worried that they will see this as deliberate fraud.

Tell you wife that the best thing she can do is send off CCA requests to everyone chasing her for money. This will highlight the firms who haven't got an enforceable agreement which could then be disputed. Whilst an account remains in dispute there is nothing the DCA's can do except stew in their own putrid slime!

 

Take control, I did and I am so much happier now (so is my family) because all the bullies have bu**ered off and left us alone because they now know that we are aware they were pi$$ing against the wind by asking for money that they were not entitled to ask for!

Would that not be imprisoned for contempt of court though?

If you have a fine, don't pay and all avenues are/have been exhausted and you've not been particularly compliant the magistrates can/may/sometimes impose a prison sentence.
