    • that doesnt tell us enough about activty on your bank account nor about any other red marks on your credit file. The CIFAS marker isnt about a phone contract so what exacty was the contract for?  you say data but that will come under a service contract so would it be possible to use massive amounts of data improperly and then not pay for it? what about your bank account, were you in the red? were you paying funds into the account from recognised sources like salary. Did you have any other DD's on that account.  
    • can you get some phots of the roof and eaves ect without trespassing on his property? insurers will have to amke good if it is your neighbours property that is causing the problem but i would ask a surveyor to have a look first so you know what to say from the outset to get the best outcome. Your local council also has powers to order them to take action but as they wont engage it may well take the 3 years you ahve given yourslef for the house move
    • you have been stiched up  but you really should have walked away from this well beofre reading the paperwork, let alone signing it.   However, the incentive is part of the contract, same as being given a free gift as part of a sale doesnt mean the retailer caqn give you somehting that is broken and not make good just because it was "free". so, back to the incentive and the terms you signed. Chances are the terms make the contract voidanyway but we wont knwo that until we see it. give us a good idea of what this is all about and you may well find a couple of people will give you the advice you need.
    • I have given them independent reports from two roofers that say they are beyond salvageable due to the upward curl on most of them along with a few cracked.    I have given them 3 quotes for removal (I was / am happy to pay for the reroof, but was based on it being slate as I could have taken it down myself.)    They have been out and taken photos themselves of the current roof along with pictures I sent in when we first found out it was asbestos after that was done was when they offered the £200 and they wouldn't comment any further on the matter.    They have asked me to have it tested officially opposed to an visual inspection but each time I ask them will they cover costs if it does come back as asbestos they ignore the question, three times I have asked.    It was 3 years ago but I first raised the complaint at the start of this year.    The age of the roof in question dates back to the 1920s when the house was built, the main building had its original bare Welsh slate roof with limestone mortar. 
    • Agree, you need to start a formal complaint and keep it in writing but also make it clear what you expect as an outcome. An apology and some commitment to better staff traing regarding general customer services but specifically handling of medical emergencies would be in order. They have a responsibility for the health and safety of all peopel on the premises and it does look like this point was sorely missed by the manager. i would also expect them to write off the cost of the ruined meal as well, you didnt paln in advance to ahve one of your party leave in an ambulance so their actions are pretty shoddy

    • 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 half way through a lengthy post about PPCs, charges, the rights of the landowner, tactics employed by PPCs etc etc. Then I realised it really boiled down to one question.

 

Knowing what you know now, do you pay for parking on private land?

 

By private land I mean any area designated for parking and managed by the likes of Excel.

 

Go on, humour me. I've had a terribly ****ty day.

It is a criminal offence to park in a 'paid for' car park without intent to pay. This site is not here to promote criminal activity only to advise those that are themselves treated unlawfully.

Citation for this global statutory offence ? I don't agree with not paying but the citation would inform.

Fraud has a much higher hurdle than the cost of a parking ticket - see the guidelines on it. Good luck with CPS with that one :)

Fraud is fraud where does it state a minimum amount? Next you will saying theft is only a crime if you steal more than a set amount. I was recently involved in convicting a driver of fraud using the 2006 act for using a fake blue badge to avoid paying in an on street p&d bay. 250 hours community service and £750 costs for two counts of not paying £1.50, I rest my case.

Good, enjoy your rest. When refreshed try using the Fraud Act for unpaid parking. Let us know how you get on..

that was a quick rest. By your won words you got them "for using a fake blue badge " . Tell us about the convictions for parking without the intention to pay under the Fraud Act which you claim is possible. Counterfeiting documents is a different thing entirely as you well know. You also say there were two counts of failing to pay £1.50. care to show us the court decision ? got a case number ?
