    • Thankyou  they are called ‘Discount Electrics’ Sutton - in - Ashfield Nottinghamshire 
    • Hello and welcome to CAG. People should be along to advise over the course of the day.   Which retailer are we talking about please?   By the way, something seems to have gone wrong with the spacing in your post above so I've popped in some paragraphs.   Best, HB
    • I'm after some advice before I fill in and return the section 172 "request for driver name and address".  I am the registered keeper of the vehicle stated .   The alleged offence (Exceeding variable Motorway speed limit 68mph in a 60mph zone) was committed on 29/07/2020, the NIP is dated 31/07/2020.  On Wednesday the 29th July 2020 a friend and I were driving for a much needed break from South Wales to spend a few days in Yorkshire, we shared the driving for the 4.5 hour journey at just over an hour at a time each.    My problem is this, 1.I have no idea of the location or recollection of the place to which the police refer (M1 Northbound Duckmanton Derbyshire?)  and 2. I cannot say with any accuracy which of us were the driver at that particular time.  I have a clean driving licence and am usually very speed aware using the cruise control at most times.   an offence for a mere 8mph on a motorway with everything that is going on at the moment seems extremely harsh IMO.     I would much appreciate if anyone could offer help / advice at what I should do next? Many thanks  🙁
    • Hello just asking,? I purchased a discount new cooker as it had cosmetic damage, paid £250 After a few days I noticed the fan never went off, I contacted the company and they finally collected the cooker and took it away, ( for 7 days) And fixed it,   It never seamt right? It steamed up in the clock panel and the oven door was mis-lined It had multiple dints in the sides Top panel missing on the door to stop food dropping in, Shelving didn’t fit well Then main fan started to rattle and tap   I put up with all this as it was *discounted Then one day whilst cooking we could smell a funny smell Turns out the wires had melted on the back of cooker I contacted the company again and it took a lot of phone calls to try and get the problem dealt with, speaking to several different staff....I wanted a refund or replacement I had had the cooker 6 months just! I asked for a refund or replacement    I contacted trading standards and citizens advice and they advised me what steps to take! Finally the company offered to replace the cooker, then later changed! As they explained that nothing came in to replace it they were too damaged! ( been told they buy at auction damaged) They wanted to look at the cooker and inspect the damage themselves, so I agreed they collected the cooker, No update, or communication I had to constantly chase them up Nothing was sorted out with 7 days we had no cooker, I threatened Trading standards were now involved Last thing on a Friday in June they rang to say I can collect the cooker it’s fixed!!!! I had expressed all along I didn’t feel safe using this cooker anymore with my family I didn’t want this cooker fixing again ( by whom) They started to blame me and said I should be grateful they aren’t charging me for the repair!   Still today in August this is not resolved  Trading standards have been useless  Citizens advice have told me to take them to small claims court!???? I have had to purchase another cooker  As I’ve been left without one.   I am in a vulnerable situation in life, Im a carer for my husband and have children and have no one to help me sort this mess out! I am struggling with making the county court claim ? What shall I do?   ( sorry for long message) ✨
    • The committee's report is pretty damning, isn't it? The Home Office refused to supply the scientific evidence it said its decisions were based on and you can possibly see Demonic's hand in this - he has form for ignoring select committees.

    • 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 recieved a stat demand (by post) from Largo Law regarding a debt which is some 10 years or so old - the problem is I MAY have made payments in the interim (usual case of being telephoned 6 times a day etc etc).

 

I have requested information re a CCA but interestingly they have told me that the court to apply to get the stat demand set aside is "Worthing County Court" - on phoning Worthing County Court I was told that they dont even deal with insolvency / bankrupcies !!!!

 

Clearly this is just used as a threat by Largo Law HOWEVER I am very worried about it and what do I do now ? Worthing County Court have said it was nothing to do with them so I really am a bit stuck ?

 

Thankyou very much indeed for any help in advance ?

Hi - thankyou very much indeed for taking the time to reply.

 

On the letter it says Worthing county Court BUT when I phoned them up they said they did NOT deal with insolvency ?

 

I therefore asume that it is just a "scare tactic" BUT it really is very worrying as ihave read on other threads how this compnay DO in fact go for Bankruptcy ?

Any other ideas on this - do you think I should just try and set it aside in ANY court that DOES deal with insolvency OR just leave it as Worthing County Court (who are listed on the demand) are adamant that they do NOT deal with insolvency ?

 

Many thanks indeed

You need to set aside at your closest court that does handle bankruptcies and insolvencies....and you need to do it within 18 days of the date you received it. What you MUST also do is report this to the OFT too. Another debt collection agency was given a slap by the OFT for not being serious about statutory demands -

OFT imposes requirements on 1st Credit over debt collection practices - The Office of Fair Trading - (as you can see it is a clear breach of compliance with the OFT giudelines, and their compliance department are obviously not complying with previous warnings) your reasons for setting aside are the lack of attempted service of the demand i.e. they have made no effort to make any kind of personal service on you. There is a potential abuse of the process by putting the wrong court on the demand. the aleged debt is statute barred...plus all the other potential reasons, no default notice in the prescribed form, no agreement, no notice of assignment, no deed of assignment....IMO you should take this to court and get a judge to dismiss it and claim back your costs, do have a look through some of the stat demand threads here - you will need to fill out forms 6.4 (set aside) and 6.5 (affadavit) and get them sworn in either at the court you are applying to (this is usually free) or you can get a local solicitor to do it (they usually charge £5 to do this) -
