    • I was at court today with a Similar offence - 68 in a variable 40...M62.   I originally Phoned the police camera dept and asked for camera proof including gantry signs showing 40...they sent them and it showed the 40 and my vehicle.   I pleaded guilty, and asked for the single justice procedure thingy.   Came back with possible short term  disqualification, with option for hearing to plead against etc. I asked for a hearing   Finally 11 months after the offence, hearing came through.   Arrived at court, finally was called in.   Offence read out etc and then I had a chance to put forward orally my personal mitigation etc. (Remorse, I was stupid, wont do it again,  need license for work as live in rural area etc, first offence, good character standing)   Today the magistrates were kind...6 points and a fine...something like £450 plus £85 costs (cant remember the exact amount but was around £535 if greatly different will repost.  Have 14 days to pay, they will send me the amount etc.   I feel very lucky today, could have been worse.  Good luck with your case.

    • Hi I got a tent from go outdoors,   over £1000 for tent porch carpet  and footprint and it was faulty, so they exchanged it, it was only 2 weeks old,  so I got another tent tht to was faulty, I have pictures of the faults,  but this time they weren't happy to exchange but they did,  then I got a vanguard 8 ,  and when we were on holiday the rain was coming through the material of the tent, holes in the stitching and the zip kepted breaking, so 2 days into our holiday we came home to change the tent and go back and finish our holiday,  but they refused, this tent was only9 days old.  So we left the store phoned head office and they said "go back to store and give them another chance to sorte this out!"  So we did and the manger was worse this time, to ring head office he didn't want to. I have a proof of a call from head office for 40mins and the manager was implying to head office I was lying about a phone call  and head office have on record of them phoning me , the manager asked me to leave the store or he will phone the police   so I told him to get the police,   while waiting for the police  a customer was returning a tent and when asked from the store what's wrong with it, they said""nothing it's to hard to put away"  so asked the manager how is tht right when my tent is faulty and u wont exchange,   he told the police I was threatening a customer,  I never spoke to the customer, I also told them I am autistic,   The manager lied to the police and the police attuided to me was horrendous and I told them  repeatedly told I was autistic,   I have video evidence of my arrest,  What are my legal rights to a new tent,  any help will be greatly appreciated thank u,   am also dyslexic,  sorry if some of this doesn't make sense ,  I've loads more to tell on this whole situation xx I was arrested for not leaving the store until I had a resolution  All the tents where hi gear  Also I told the manager tht we where on holiday to rest as we've just had 4 weeks of hell with my daughter as shes now in hospital safe,  so we went away for 5 days knowing she was safe ,  and why woul we come home early and try to change a faulty tent,  and go back to our holiday if it wasn't faulty they weren't interested   I've been having meltdowns really bad this x  Also I was released from the police 2hrs later WITHOUT  been Interviewed and NO CHARGES I've had a email today saying because of my being banned from the store I can have a refund   I've sent them emails asking questions and they will answer the email but wont answer my questions and now they saying as a good will gesture they will refund me  But I only have until friday which is 1 day to accept the return and if I dont they will not refund me  And am so distressed ,  Am I right the if a item is faulty you have 28 days to a full refund 
    • Thanks dx I did read these post but wasn’t sure if they ended well.   I suppose it depends on how nervous it would make the buyer, and if their solicitor was happy to play ball.
    • the 120 days runs from when he discovered he could use chargeback. that must be within 540 days of the relevant card transaction. sadly halifax are useless everytime over chargeback  and never get things right.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Need advice on the best way forward here!

Will try to keep brief...

26th June - lunchtime... sudden onset of crushing pain in left hand side over ribs and lungs - felt couldn't breathe and pain was coming in waves. Spoke with out of hours service (ThamesDoc), explained circs and made quite clear no pain in left hand arm or centre of chest, therefore not heart attack but crushing pain in lungs and felt as though I had been kicked by a horse. They arranged for me to see out of hours GP at local hospital that afternoon. By the time I'd got there, pain had subsided and I reiterated the symptoms to the GP and also mentioned that I suffer from high BP. She took NO obs and briefly listened to RIGHT side of chest and said I possibly had the onset of shingles (however no rash) or a torn muscle and to take Ibuprofen. Have to say I had never heard of shingles causing a lung pain:cool:

Following Thursday morning I collapse at home on my own in excruciating pain, unable to breathe and managed to call ambulance and taken to A&E. Subsequently discovered after chest xray taken, that I had well established pneumonia and had to spend 16 days in hospital. Doctors who I subsequently saw said I had had it for at least 2 weeks and I was one day away from ICU if I had left it another day:eek:

Now, why didn't the OOH GP send me next door to the A&E for a chest Xray when I went on the Saturday and complained of lung/breathing problems?

All of this occurred a month ago and I have at least another month of antibiotics as the lower part of my lung is still gungy. I am self employed and have so far lost 1 months income which can be proven.

 

I am very loathe to consult lawyers who will only want their pound of monetary flesh and wonder if a strongly worded letter to the CEO of Thamesdoc would be productive. All I want is for my LOE to be settled and an enquiry into this GP so that she doesn't do this haphazard diagnosis for someother poor soul who may be elderly, or have young children at home.

 

PS I have absolutely no complaint against the hospital or medical/nursing staff who were absolutely brilliant.

 

Any advice gratefully received.

Many thanks

Hi empowered,

 

this is appalling that you are unwell with unexplained chest pains and don't even get basic observations of temperature, pulse, respiration and blood pressure done, even with a history of raised blood pressure!! Strange diagnosis of shingles with no spots! I'd love to see the GP's notes on his examination of you out of hours!!!

Sure she wasn't a cleaner just filling in?!!!

 

Go with advice above and good luck.

Hope your fighting fit now even though out of pocket!

Keep up the fight against Bank Charges.

 

 

Got Debt problems?

Don't panic, put the kettle on and read this

 

:-) Everything I write comes from my heart and head! The large filling cabinet that is my knowledge of life, however warped that may be!! :-)

 

<<< Please tickle my star!! if I have managed to help you or just made you chuckle!
