    • You will be subject to the same laws notice periods and protections as with any length of contract.    From my own and other’s personal experience I would treat it as an amber warning light to start putting out feelers into what’s out there on the market   A 6 month contract is great for people who might be waiting for a new build , or having renovations done on their own property. For someone like yourself who wants security it might well be time for you to consider moving on.
    • Thank you. You still haven't given as much information. We need more. Please will you tell us who the retailer is – are they in UK or elsewhere? What was the item and what is its value? Did you declare the correct value? Or did the retailer declare the correct value? You say you paid by credit card – not a debit card against your bank account? Please read around all the Hermes threads on this forum. There is lots of good information there. In particular understand your rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
    • I am sorry, but without seeing the contract, and knowing what is on it or what effect it has, it is impossible to say.     
    • A16 BYN is the plates that the car was advertised with, and obviously the plate which I checked the mot history with, I also thought the same that the website maybe hadn't been updated with the most recent mot that the dealer had got done, I asked for the original plate number whilst doing the logging in to my bank account, to pay both the dealer and the shiply transporter. Bearing in mind I had told the dealer around 6pm that I would get the deposit sorted out when I put my son to bed, that gave him every opportunity to send me any pre contract details etc. Just over an hour later (son still wasn't in bed) asked for the address of where the vehicle was to be picked up from as I couldn't accept the quote for the transporter without that information. Less than an hour after that he whatsapped me asking if I still want to buy the car because he's getting enquiries from other interested parties and is telling them that he's sold the car to me (no deposit  paid as yet). I then replied a few min later having finally got my son to sleep.    Anyway between me sorting out the details and where to pick the car up from, log into my banking to pay deposits etc he'd  messaged me the original plate no... which I didn't see until after I'd done all the aformentioned.    I decided to check the history on that plate as like yourself I had been confused about the mileage, low and behold there was the most recent mot containing 5 advisories which were never mentioned to me. Another thing I can't really understand is the expiry date of the mot before that either and I did query all of this with the dealer, only to be told that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues...and that if I had checked the mot history I would have seen them, I explained I had checked the history on the plate in the advert as I had no knowledge of what the original plate numbers were and he told me that the most recent mot was under the plate in the advert. Most certainly the mot certificate he then sent me on whatsapp had the advertised plate on the certificate,  however, it wasn't showing up on the dvla page.    By this stage I was irate with him for several reasons, for not notifying me of the advisories and telling me that he had checked the dvla and the most recent mot was showing up on the advertised plates, I then screenshot the page with the expiry and this car is not mot'd information, and 2 for telling me that cars in Scotland are renowned for corrosion issues!    Had he simply said, the car is 18 years old you're going to expect to have some corrosion at some point, I'd have been a bit more tolerant at that stage. Apon checking the history on the original plates, it transpired it passed the last MOT previous to the most recent one on the same day the advertised plates ran out, I still haven't quite fathomed out what is going on regards to this. However the previous mot showed no corrosion issues and as it hadn't failed on that basis, I would get the panel beater sprayer mentioned in an earlier post to have a look at it, and sort the issues out re that, also the main reason I had the car delivered to my dad's address as that's also the area where the panel beaters business is.  
    • I had a similar thought, TJ. The Guardian has done an explainer of the rules as of yesterday.   Someone said that if the government, had retained public trust, they might not have needed stringent measures like this.   https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/sep/28/england-new-coronavirus-restrictions-explained

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

What benefits were they on and what is the reason on the notification for stopping them?

So what reason have they given for terminating his claim? And the reason that they have given - is it correct?

I think the reason is..

That he never turned up for 1 appointment so reed (employment for dwp)

said they aint going to pay him..

Until £400 is repaid....

And the claim was stopped in june im at a loss...

i dont understand how they pay them for june then send a letter out in july telling them the claim is stopped....

and the child tax credit want £4,000 off them...

strange

Hi gdk2711,

 

They can't refuse to pay a benefit until an overpayment is repaid. Tax credit can but not JSA. But in any case they can't reinstate a terminated claim unless via a reconsideration or appeal.

 

They can make deductions from a new benefit award though. If he did fail to appear at a scheduled appointment then he has not complied with his JSAg so they are entitled to terminate the claim, and he would need to re-apply for JSA. If he did turn up at the appointment or had a good reason for failing to turn up then he should re-claim JSA but also appeal the decision to terminate his last claim. They would still have paid him because JSA is paid in arrears; it also may depend on the timescale that it took Reed to inform them of his failure to attend.

 

Hi all

they were told there claim stopped july 1st (dwp) and they owe them £200 for an overpayment

 

And wont give them any money till they pay £400 overpayment

 

I think the reason is..

Until £400 is repaid....

 

Is it £200 overpayment as you first stated or is it £400 as you now state? How did the overpayment on JSA occur?

 

there kids were removed june 2009... and the child tax credits have landed them with a £4.000 bill to repay them..

 

When the children were removed, did they end the child tax credit claim? Did payments stop at this time? Or did they continue to claim?

 

 

and her boyfriend made dwp claim and his girlfriend made tax credit claim

but using 2 different surnames for him..

 

Can you clarify why you think this is relevant, as I can't see the relevance myself?

 

Thanks

Sorry for late response...

As far as we can gather now they were claiming at 2 seperate address's

THIS HAS NOT BEEN CONFIRMED

We found out today they have a crisis loan of £50 to last them 3 weeks..

This is becoming a lot more suspect...

with them......

Hi, I'm sorry I neglected you gdk2711. The information available at the moment is not sufficeint to offer any real advise to be frank, though I understand you can only tell us what they tell you.

 

For example:

And also she told us they were getting a reduced rate as the had to buy snacks for there kids in care when him and her had contact in a contact centre...

 

Tax credit does not pay a parent to provide snacks for their kids who are not under their guardianship. I don't think you are being told the full story here.

 

In regard to the tax credit, if they don't pay it voluntarily, HMRC will pursue it via the court.

 

They should speak to a Welfare Rights officer or CAB - but it is imperitive that they are straight with them. If they aren't upfront then they CAB/WR will not be in a position to help.
