    • And as for “what if I get sick the last week” (or those last three days)......   well, you’d get sick pay. Would you go into your new workplace?   HMRC may not be bothered by 2 overlapping jobs of course, but if NHS CFS (counter fraud And security) noticed that either: a) you were claiming over-lapping sick pay for 2 jobs, or b) you were claiming sick pay for one job while well enough to turn in for the other: expect them to view at least one of the sick pay claims as fraudulent!   if you annoy your “difficult” manager : they might be difficult enough to highlight it for the local NHS CF specialist
    • 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 there, I would like to thank anyone in advance if they have any positive comments about my situation. First of all here is the details from Experian:-





Date of birth: 10/12/19 Company name: HUTCHISON 3G UK LTD Account type: Communications Started: 30/06/2005 Default Balance: £322 Current Balance: Satisfied


Defaulted On: 25/09/2008 File Updated for the Period to: 12/12/2008


The story , and it is a good one, goes like this.....In 2005 I had recently finished university and started to work abroad for a large energy service company in the oil and gas sector. I had started a mobile phone contract with Hutchison 3G on the basis that if all bills were kept as I remember and a couple of other rules then you recieve a rebait in the 3rd, 6th and 9th month I think. Anyway it was a personal contract as the company had said I could choose the phone I wanted and they would pick up the bills. This one seemed very inviting with the 3G technology and the great price. Now for the duration of my using the phone the bills were paid fine until such a point that my employer chased the rebait which formed part of the contract. Now this apparently spiralled and I only found out at a much later date that no rebait was awarded due to paperwork not being returned and so there was a dispute over the bill itself. I was never told any of this, and was issued a new company phone and told that contract was stopped. About 3yrs later! I returned back to the UK to find that a default had been put on my credit file. At that point I didn't want or need credit and I thought after I paid it immediately that the default would be marked as satisfactory and it would cease to be a problem. I obviously did not understand and now the default apparently will be with me until 2014!!!! for a mere 322 pounds. Now however unfair it seems to me, I do not believ that the law, as it stands in on my side in anyway, and I am not sure the best way to proceed and if it is indeed possible to convince the company to lift the default given the circumstances. I personally had debts at uni, but ironically enough I worked every hour god sent to have them all clear and was never late with any credit inc mortgage etc my whole life right up until this one well and truly slipped through the net. I also now have a baby on the way and it is absolutely imperative that I clear this in some way to provide for my family. I will reiterate this 322 pound bill is the one and only blemish on my credit record and incidentally I also own 75% of my property and will have a 50% deposit for the next property I hope to purchase.


It also appears if I had never paid off the debt (which isn't really a consideration even if it was the company debt and not my own) then it would be off next year. But because I paid the debt in full in 2008 it is 6 years for THEN that the default stays, this makes no sense at all and the rules should be changed.


Any response would be much appreciated. I am offshore just now but could probably get more detailed information if required

OK - first, the 6 years is from the date of the default, NOT when you pay it. Second, this shows you;ve actually paid it and no debt exists. Third, SOME firms will score you automatically, and despite being settled, will be treated the same as if a CCJ. I've always wondered why, but assuming they treat it as 'no smoke without fire' it remains their decision and there's not a great deal you can do about it. You COULD write a letter to 3UK saying this is causing problem and would they care to remove the record, as you are no longer a customer and would be grateful for their assistance. If they sat no, well, at least you tried!


Ensure all the details listed are correct, (date, amount, settlement?) if there IS an error, you can demand it be rectified, and if serious enough, insist to a total removal. Always worth a shot! Next time, don't mess with mobile phone contracts, wrecking your credit file for something as inconsequential as a mobile phone is really silly - especially as alternatives exist.
