    • Hello, Can someone advise if the attached is a valid charge please?  I had parked in the car park and paid but then got delayed and have ended up with a ticket for parking longer than I should have done.   I know they will refuse the appeal but is this charge enforceable?   Charge Notice.pdf
    • The dealer is called Carwise in Epping. It's not the most established of premises. When i was there i'd say there was about 10-15 cars inside and an office. I've seen these reviews of them which seem to replicate my experience. https://www.cardealerreviews.co.uk/dealership/hr-autos-epping-essex-england (note previous name). It's quite worrying.    
    • To me, it isn't just about social distancing and hygiene measures. I'm far from the first to say it but until there's a reliable track and trace system, I don't think this can be managed properly.   Children may not suffer as much as adults, although some do, they can be asymptomatic and pass on the virus to the rest of the family.   https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/lockdown-david-king-second-wave-18739973
    • When will most schools actually re-open in September ?   And when they open, will they be providing teaching over the number hours 9am to 3pm  ?   I am thinking of the school I attended, which was a large Victorian building, with many modern extensions.  The classrooms which could accommodate about 35 Children elbow to elbow, will only be able to accommodate 20 at the most with any reasonable distancing.   Or does the whole class  of say 35 stay in a bubble and the teachers move around to teach the different subjects ?    I can see many schools opening later in September, not for all pupils for all days and not doing the full hours.   This is going to be very difficult to manage for all those concerned, including parents looking to return to work.

    • 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

Hi,

Whatever you do, DO NOT phone them.

 

Do everything in writing and send every letter by recorded delivery.

DO NOT sign anything.

 

 

My initial thought is to send a "prove it" letter

 

Letter 18 here:

i may be another victim.I have had letters from them askig about twho lived at my address etc then i had another 2 saying saying i owe £8000 to lombard bank.I have never had any dealings with this bank it doesnt say when or what for,.i dont know if it would of been possible for my ex husband when he left me 12yr ago to obtain a loan through my name,if i contact them them saying i dont owe them & my ex has done something in my name do i go down the statute barred route or will it affect it if i contact them,i dont know where he is or if hes still alive I am 73 I dont know what to do.I think it must be something to do with him as i am already paying a debt off at £4.00 a week for him of which they said he had gone bankrupt 10 year ago so the debt came to me because it was in joint names.

This sounds like a phishing expedition by tracing and tracking. I would not respond to any of these letters in any form.

 

Keep the letters on a file for reference. If the alleged debt could be statute barred let them do all the work. It's going to cost them time and money.

Yes I am inclined to agree, and ignore these empty threats, I know it's easier said than done but it only encourages them if you reply to them.

 

I wouldn't worry, there is absolutely nothing they can do, they cannot instruct bailiffs, you won't go to jail, and even if you did contact them to deny the debt, this would NOT reset the statute barred clock, so it is safe to say that if it is over 12 years then this is well and truly SB, and nothing you or they do or say, will ever restart the clock, even if you told them yes I do owe that money, I had a fantastic 4 week holiday in the bahamas, they will not be able to do a thing.


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!
