    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry. 
    • The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many countries into recession - but what exactly is it and how could it affect you? View the full article
    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • 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 am in county court tomorrow for being thick,

 

 

in april 2009 i had £3200 paid into my bank account and i thought it was tax credit refund

as in april 2008 i had £2990 paid in as a tax credit refund

 

 

,the bank website went down the day after i saw the payment in the account all it said was bank credit

and thats what it said when the tax rebate went in 2008, i put 2 +2 together and thought it was a rebate .

 

 

i am now being sued by the chap , things just cant get any worse

 

 

my wife died in august 6th 2002 she used to handle all the benefits etc and paying bills im just useless and a let down as a father ,

i just cant work out where i went wrong i didnt know and never thought any the wiser ,

 

 

i cant repay the money im on very low wages . i dont know what to do my house is mortgaged

and when i have paid all the bills i have nothing left at the end of every month

 

 

my car is only worth £1000 , my children are disabled and registered blind ,

 

 

i found out last month there is a cure for my sons blindness and have to pay £180 for consultation

with a chance of him having an operation which will cost £9000 per eye ,

the cure isnt available on the nhs .

i cant afford it neither the consultation or the operation.

 

I have failed and keep on failing

i dont know where to turn

the courts wanted me to send the chap my bank statements for march april may 2008 and march april may 2009

i cant do this and wont they are personal and i dont think he has any right looking at them to see what a loser i am .

 

 

i sometimes wish it was me that died and not my wife

,she was the one who could do all this and manage the bills ,

all i want to do is look after my children

and work but cant even do that properly.:(:(:(

the chap paid the money into the abbey who put it into my account by mistake

i never received any paperwork for putting in a defence

just the papers for me to appear in court at 10;30am in London

 

 

i can just afford to get there (but walking into work for the next 2 weeks its 4miles away)

 

 

i tried to find the tax credit forms for 2008 but can only find the ones for 2007

i also had a rebate for 2010 ,2009 was the only year i didnt get a rebate

 

 

,i normally keep everything but cant find them just as proof that i had the 2990 paid in the previous year

,the bank didnt even tell me till 3-4 weeks after the money was paid in and by then it was gone ,

i feel like everything is working against me

 

the chap said i must have known it wasnt my money ,

but i didnt i feel like crying,

im not a theif and would rather starve than do anything illegal .:(

I don't think you would be arrested, it's a county court claim against you.

 

The way I see things, even though the money was paid into your account, you made the error of assuming it was rightfully yours.

 

However, it would appear that this person has sent a payment and it has somehow ended up in your account.

 

You have since spent the money.

 

The guy wants his money back. Did he not write to you previous to the court summons?

 

The best I can recommend is that you tell the Judge what your side of the story is, and hope that the Judge understands.

 

If you lose the case tomorrow, then you would get a CCJ for the amount the person is asking for. You would then have to tell the Judge your financial circumstances, even if it means that you have to pay it back at a £1 a month or so.

 

As long as you keep up the payments, there is not a lot that that person can do I don't think. Sorry I cannot help you any further.

Ok

 

What has Abbey to say they must be involved somewhere

if this chap didnt realise the mistake he should have taken

it up with them not you , is it Abbey who have taken you to court

or this chap?

 

Are you saying that you are not able to go to court tomorrow if

so judgement will go against you and you will get a CCJ .

 

Its very late and not too many caggers around to help I dont have

the knowledge you need but will do what I can and support you ,with

luck someone will come along press the red triangle at the bottem left

hand corner for site team help

 

 

Regards

I have alerted the site team to this thread to see if they can help you out or not.

 

If you are the second defendent, it is possible the bank will be there tomorrow to defend their own actions.

 

Now that you have said the above, I would have thought, technically the bank were at fault, and they should handle it rather than you. If you owe any money, surely it is to the bank, as it was not your doing.

Ok

 

It would appear from what i can make out that this chap is taking

both you and Abbey to court at the same time so it would be in

your interest to attend court tomorrow to put your side across to

the judge so he can see that it was a mistake on the banks side

seems a big mess, pity you didnt ask for help before but if it where

me I would go to court tomorrow they will not do anything to you or

your family and it can be sorted so you can get on with caring for

your family .

 

I wish you the best of luck

 

stay calm it will be alright

 

Regards

will i get arrested for this
No - It's a court case only to get the person's money back. There is no reason whatsoever that I can think of, as to why you would get arrested.

 

Worse case scenario, the Judge makes an order for you to repay the monies you have received in error. Then you can tell the judge that you can only afford x amount per month to repay it.

It all depends on what happens tomorrow.

 

Did you pay the money into your account - No

 

Did the bank pay the money into your account - Yes

 

The only thing that you have done is wrongfully assumed it was a tax credit rebate.

 

The Judge could of course say that any person that received this amount of money, must have thought hang on where has this money come from?

 

You have already said the reason why you thought you had received it.

 

There should have been protocol followed, ie letter before action etc

 

I think the bank are at fault and any money you owe (as technically you do) should be between yourself and the bank.

 

I would hope that the bank would repay this tomorrow and then approach you to repay it rather then let you carry the can.

You wont be arrested and neither do you deserve to be arrested.

 

letsdothis has posted sound advice.

 

You believed the money to be a tax credit rebate. This was a reasonable assumption as you have had these rebates in previous years.

 

Just explain things as they genuinely are.

 

Can you please come back and let us know exactly what happens in court today, regardless of the outcome.

 

What time is the hearing ?

Saviour I feel for you and I know how scary it is to go to the courts.

 

Remember this is a CIVIL matter . Its a claim against you and NOT a Criminal trial so there is no reason that you would be arrested.

 

Try to be as calm as you can. If you disagree with anything that is said in the court ask the Judge if you may make a comment .

 

Call the judge ' sir' or 'madam '

 

Try to state your case without being too emotional . The Judge will ask you for your version of events. Just be factual . If you dont have all the paperwork you need then show what you have.

 

Have you made any copies of the documents you plan to take with you ?

 

Have you done an Income and Expenditure sheet ?

 

Maybe this post is too late to help ? Sorry if it is .

i got totally screwed ,

the bank that caused all this got away scot free ,

did anyone see police academy where captain harris and the other guy was kidnapped

and the scene on the boat was dont shoot me and a quick nod to the other chap ,

this is what my bank done to me today ,

 

 

i have to repay the money in 28 days or get a judgement ,

the chap outside called me over and said he wont wait for 3 yrs to get his money

unless i give him large payments he has a case lodged with the police against me

and i will get arrested for theft ,

 

 

the judge didnt want to see any proof off me

he said before i even gave my evidence that i would have to repay the money

he wasnt interested in anything i said and spoke lots of legal jargon ,to the other ones

 

 

i felt intimidated ,the bank got totally let off and left me to face everything.

they didnt want to know about taxcredits etc

i looked for the forms till 3am and he didnt even want to look at it .

 

thank you all very much for your advice ,

it made me feel much better even tho the outcome was the same ,

i can see now why people do themselves in over debt

 

 

im definatley worth more dead than alive and my son could get his operation with a lump sum for buying himself a cheap house somewhere

,i will find the money from somewhere to repay it .maybe a night job ,

but it will have to be massive payments and he wont accept £2.00 a week more like £500 or more a month

but i will get it wonder where the redlight district is up here and do they accept men

,is there a minimum wage and pension scheme .

i dont know how im gonna look after my kids at the same time
