    • Hello there,   My wife (62) has advanced arthritis on both hands and wrists (inherited from her mother's side of the family).   She left her job as a youth carer in January of this year because amongst other issues with her inability to work they pushed her into office and admin. However, with her arthritis, writing or using computers became impossible. As nearly all jobs available requires some use of hands, which she is unable to do, what benefits would be available to her. Does my wife qualify for anything?   Other info. She does have arthritis in all areas of her body, but for example she is able to walk reasonable distances, sit down comfortably for reasonable lengths of time, etc. She also suffers from psoriasis (which may have played a part in her condition).   A friend of hers owns a wine bar and offered her a job (not too taxing) but it required her to carry wine bottles and glass which was OK-ish for the first 60 mins but then became impossible for her to do.   Any help or advice greatly appreciated.   cheers sidley
    • I think it will be very helpful to let people know more detail about these debts. Who is the original creditor? How much was the debt for? When was the debt incurred? When did you last make any payment or acknowledgement of the debt
    • Hello and welcome to CAG. Thank you for the information, it will help the guys to advise you. Please don't do anything until they've had a look and possibly asked questions.   While  you're waiting, you have other VCS airport threads for Liverpool and Southend, possibly others. It would be worth a read to understand how they operate.   Best, HB
    • What part of never use email Never communicate with a powerless dca hasnt been understood?   If you want to do anything which you should as it also protects your backdoor if the debt were to be sold and a DCA were to litigate as it stands..send our sb letter from the debt collection section of our library   Thats goes to the oc as they still own the debt
    • Good afternoon - I've received a parking charge notice from VCS - grateful for any advice - do I ignore/appeal? Can VCS enforce the restricted zone in this way, covered under bylaws (I think)?   Driver didn't notice signage, vehicle wasn't actually stopped by double red lines (as pictured)   1 Date of the infringement 25/11/19 2 Date on the NTK 29/11/19 3 Date received 4/12/19 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? No 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 6 Have you appealed? No 7 Who is the parking company? Vehicle Control Services (VCS) 8. Where exactly Bristol Airport - on "privately operated access roads", just outside car park barrier, not car park itself - stopped for 5 seconds to pick someone up, didn't pick them up and drove away when the camera van arrived. Operate under IAS   Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone,

I need a little advice. A DCA who will remain nameless. Basically the DCA has no case, due to cart before horse situation the original owner shot them self before the game even started.

 

OK so I have sent a letter basically saying I acknowledge no debt to your organisation etc. Which is 100% correct, I also sent the template telephone harassment letter by recorded delivery which was received.

 

I believe the DCA is on a fishing trip they are not particularly harassing more annoying, I have clearly stated that I will not discuss the matter on the phone, yet they don't seem to want to send anything more in writing. I believe they want me to acknowledge the alleged debt verbally. My problem is I'm generally very calm but if pushed to far I tend to lose all rational thought in conversations. To date I have kept calm I may add.

 

What can I do to stop them calling? Whats my next step after the letter OFTEL? The calls are about 1 to 2 per week so nothing major. It's just annoying me they are ignoring my wishes, which is nothing new with this "organisations".

 

 

Thanks

I found playing radio 2 kept them on the line long enough... they soon get the message, after all they are usually paid on a performance basis and listening to "factoids" in the afternoons doesn't earn them much.

 

Trading standards like to hear about this sort of thing. I think their remit has something to do with "Consumer Protection Against Unfair Trading" regulations so give them a ring and fill them in. They might give you a complaint reference number which you can update each time these clowns call.
