    • Hi,     I'm in the process of voluntary termination of my moneybarn agreement, in accordance with secion 99(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. I have returned the vehicle, it was collected by a 3rd party on behalf of MB, in driveable condition with fear wear and tear condition.  Their report states that the condition was "Average" (The options were Good, Average and Poor). I have paid more than 50% and recently, before starting the VT process spent £700 to make sure car is roadworthy (gearbox repairs). I am £880 over the 50% mark. Today I've received final billing letter estimating body repairs at over £1,300 (the bodywork is fine - peeling lacquer and alloy wheels would need refurb though). I've purchased the car at 7 years old with over 80k miles, through National Car Credit (pretty sure I've seen another topic on here about them). The car is now more than 10 years old, and I did take pictures + videos of the car before it was collected.   Now. I've had a payment holiday through April and May (which I don't dispute and will willingly cover the amount that they're asking for this payment holiday term) But however I'm not okay with covering the bodywork repairs for a car that is over 10 years old and wasn't excellent condition the day I've purchased it. It came with no service history book and only one key (on my own expense I've purchased another one and had it programmed)   No arrears on the account, no missed payments (just 2 month agreed payment holiday - between myself and MB) which I'm okay to cover. Given the car back in drive-able condition (it was very noisy the week before it was collected, hence why I've spent money on repairs) half of tank of petrol, kept tax up to the day it was collected.   Advice would be appreciated, thank you.   dx: I can't pm you as I haven't got enough posts on here, but if you'd like more details and see what has been sent and see the responses please PM me.     Thanks.
    • I am not a lawyer but I definitely think you are correct.   You will need evidence that Fast Track was not available on your way out - "Unknown reasons" sounds ominous. Do you have pictures/videos/written records to prove it?   Ryanair website states they are not responsible for you missing your flight as a result of fast track, but it doesn't say anything about not being responsible for the product they sold you not being available. Have you tried asking for a refund already?   Either way they sold you something that they did not provide - I don't see how this can be legal - and hopefully you should be able to prove it. Get written evidence that they refused to refund you (if you don't have it already) and take it straight to your card provider. (by many accounts it seems pointless to try and negotiate with Ryanair)
    • Hello everyone, recently I ordered 4 birds, 2 canaries and 2 lovebirds from a pet shop in Nottingham. When I received the birds, one of the canaries looked scruffy and had a bald spot on its back. when I asked the owner if this was normal he stated that “it is a baby and will be normal in a week” so I waited a week and I discovered it was sneezing throughout the night. I then decided to check their weight and the scruffy one was only 15 grams while the other was 26 grams. While weighing them I discovered they were covered in blood mites (small bugs that feed on blood) so I contacted him and he said I could return them but I’m unable to drive an hour to his shop so I offered to pay another delivery fee fr him to pick it up but he was ignoring me so I decided to try to treat them and bought many medicines and I cured their mute problem but now all 4 birds are sneezing, I’ve had many birds before and I’ve never had these problems so I asked him if he couldn’t please come pick them up but he kept reading my messages and ignoring me then when I called him he blocked my number so I messaged him on my other number laws showing te sale of an ill animal is prohibited and sent him proof of his false advertising (saying they were “excellent healthy birds”) proof fm their illness and he blocks me again. I feel scammed and according to the law he I is obligated to refund me for the birds and any medical expenses but I don’t know know where to report him or what to do about it. Any suggestions would  be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    • 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

Now self-employed vacancy is not in my contract and now the JSC is now investigating it. The idiots who put the vacancy on the Direct.gov web site do not mention it was a self-employed vacancy and even got the steps to apply completely wrong.

 

It says to phone up for an interview to apply but when I done a bit of investigation before hand it turns out you do in fact need to send CV, cover letter blah, blah, blah. On the site it mentions these are self-employed vacancies.

 

Now I have to waste my time writing responding to another form and some how get evidence that it was indeed a self-employed vacancy. The vacancy has now closed and no longer on the web site and now I hope the email I am going to send to this agency will give me confirmation that it’s indeed that this is the case.

 

Why did the person at the Job Centre Plus take that answer and leave it be. The person at the Job Centre did not question my answer at the time and said it would be ok and left it as that also how comes now after 5 months I see a able person at the Job Centre who not actually gives me some real advice on my search criteria and is actually willing to look at my CVs correctly and not just have a glance at it like last time.

 

GRRRRR!!!! I am pleased I don't have other benfits to claim for and not living in my own premises. This is crazy.

I have no idea what the JSC is?

 

If the vacancy was through the jobcentre then whether it is closed or not doesn't matter because the company and its vacancy history is still available on the jobcentre's LMS system.

 

It is also fair to point out that providing CV support is not something a jobcentre advisor is expected to do. Someone with experience may do this but others with less experience who could help you may actually harm your chances of finding work. Due to this possible discrepancy, the goverment decided to allow outside organisations (called providers) to take this area on.

@ Greer totally agree with you about the comments you have stated.

 

the Job centre actually stopped my benefit for 2 whole weeks as i sent 27 letters off in one week for employment and for all those of you wondering about the Job centre not all of it that bad they do have a habit of covering thier own tracks to protect them self agianst the customer ie people on benefit etc

 

things i've discovered with the above is to go and buy a dictaphone for everytime you sign on etc and yes you are allowed to record them i have this evidence from thier office after the staff reported me for this but after lots of letter writing and a bit of research they admitted the error and said people are allowed i will find the letter if you or anyone requires it and will post it on here for anybody

 

also with the job centre if your writing any complaint etc is to write it etc take it to the job centre in person ask the front desk staff to stamp it for acknodlegment then ask them to photocopy it then ask them to sign it which they will do and if possible thier name on it if they refuse ask for higher authority or something they 9 times out of 10 will do this .

 

they will question why you want it done this way just tell them for proof they recieved it

 

as they have a bad habit of losing appeals etc that's what i learnt the hard way anyway they only owe me about £1000 so happens to me quite often i'm used to it like may others i guess
