    • 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

A friend of mine is having money troubles and has approached The Money Group with a view to either an IVA or a DMP.

 

I have not heard of this company so can not advise her.

 

If anybody has any views or experience of them could you please let me know.

 

Thankyou

It seems the Money Group deal with a variety of options to help clear debts :

 

link removed

 

I would just check that they do not charge any fees for their DMPs or IVAs. There are a lot of companies out there who have hidden upfront fees, meaning your money paid to them is not going directly to creditors. Free of charge companies that your friend could try with are CCCS and Payplan.

Hi, I have been on a dmp with the money group for nearly a year now, i have had no issues whatsoever!

I got into alot of trouble as i was in a very high paid job and decided to get a few things on finance along with any credit card or catalogue i could get my hands on. At the time this wasn't a prob as i could always make more than a min payment on my bills. Then i got made redundant, my pay off obviously covered some things such as my rent and household bills until i found new employment but not my debts. I ended up giving everything i could back but was still left with a 30k debt!!!!! The money group contacted me and usually i would have hung up but i decided to hear them out. By that time i had a new job that didn't pay half as much as the last one and had also fallen pregnant (not good planning on my part!)

Due to the low income and low maternity pay i would be getting they set me up on a dmp, they do charge a small fee but i don't care, my debts are now out of my hands and i no longer have to worry when someone knocks on the door! Obviously being on a dmp the term i pay these debts over has extended but i am paying as much as i can currently afford, my creditors are lucky they are getting anything! Hopefully when i go back to work i can work my way up to a better wage and go for an IVA, at least that way i will have 5 yrs of repayments and i think have some of the debt written off (sounds good to me)

Hope this helps

They are a fee charging company and they cannot gurantee that the interest would be frozen either. They are apart of the freshstart home loans company.

i used to work for the money group and they are not part of freshstart. they are an independant company, yes there is a small monthly fee and while we cant garuntee to stop all your intrest we always get it lowered. its not just debt managment they do, its energy company switchover, setting up secure trust banking, reclaiming ppi and family/friend referrals

I worked at the money group they are part of freshstart and I feel it is [problem] charging people twice or even 3 times there monthly payment as a set up fee over 2 months meaning there creditors don't get paid and I feel that the money group are targeting young single mothers and that they will only sign you up If you have a debit card so they can automatically take payments out of your account so if you don't send your client authority form back and they have taken money you are entitled Tobit back. You are best off dealing with creditors yourself as they are easier to deal with than people think and you don't have to pay any fees or set up costs.

They are only doing what all fee management companies do - that doesn't make it right or wrong it is just what they all do. You can do it yourself though with advice from this site as you will have seen and all the letter templates to use are in the library...

Yes, they called me just when I was feeling the pinch, and so I agreed to their terms and (foolishly) gave them my card number to pay an initial £10. When it came time to sign the official papers to start their debt management plan (which would have meant paying £80+ a month), I got cold feet. Well, over the next few WEEKS| they phoned incessantly trying to persuade me - and this put me off even more. I finally blocked thier numbers and emailed them to return my £10, and that I was solving my debt problems through another route.

Today I saw that they took £83 from my account without my authorization. As it is the weekend, I cannot get through to them to complain, so have to wait til Monday. They will say I agreed to it, somehow - I'm sure. But I will threaten them with Trading Standards, Watchdog, and whatever I can throw at them. Stay away! And by the way, upon calculating what I would end up paying them in total, it would have been £7000. My debts are only £4000.:-x

Hi there , ive been on the phone to the money group for the past hour and a half and have offered me the help of a debt managment scheme which is only available in scotland , and as i am from scotland this is great it freezes my charges and etc guaranteed , they are sending out the paperwork and making me aware of there monthly charges , and a one off set up fee, i cant decide if this is a genuine help to me or making things worse?

has anyone had a similar good experience where i can put faith in them if i proceed and sign everything ?

or has anyone got a good success story which could be helpful ?

any comments well appreciated ,

Thanks !

Hi everyone,

Just to clarify, The Money Group is not run by volunteers. Ihave worked there for quite a while and we do get paid.

We are very upfront about our fees. It’s just a smallpercentage of your Manageable monthly payment. The TSR that youoriginally answer the phone to physically cannot quote you any prices on plansor fees. The prices and fees vary with everyone’s individual circumstances. Weare legally not allowed to put you in a worse position, so if something won’t benefityou. . . . the TSR won’t pass you to your own Personal Finance Manager, theywill simply let you know. Even if you do get passed through, it’s onlydownstairs of the same building . . . . (Nothing to fret about!!) . . . andthey look at your situation in a little more detail and will also tell youimmediately if a Debt Management Plan or IVA isn’t best suited for yourself.

You will be asked if you would like to pay anything at thetime of the conversation as a token payment, however you are not obliged to paya token payment and there is no pressure at all if you don’t want to or cannotafford to.

As stated above, there are non-fee charging companies (nonames) but the majority (if not all) are actually being funded by the creditorsthat you owe money to. Google it! They need to be able to afford the help theyare giving and need money from somewhere . . . do they not? So, where as we,and other companies alike, are fee charging . . . we work on behalf of ourclients. We do specialise as a company at looking to freeze any interest orcharges being put on top of your accounts.

We help, on average, around 150 people a day. I don’t understandwhere the post above got the “single mothers” from . . . I suppose it’sdifferent for every different TSR as to who they notice the most. We get ourdata from Loan and Credit Card companies. They are mainly, loan decline’s etcso there is quite the variety of recipients of our calls.

Basically, if we didn’t think we could help you, we wouldn’tbe phoning you. We don’t know until we have asked.

Any questions, please feel free to ask.

The free debt management plan providers such as Payplan and CCCS do indeed recieve funding from the creditors to ensure that they can provide debt management plans at no cost to the public, this does not mean that 'they work on behalf of the creditor'. It is imperative to seek impartial advice when deciding on the best option to approach a debt situation. Often the commercial sector do not provide the public with truly holistic advice.

Can you clarify what you mean by "tell you immediately" and perhaps tell us what happens to those who are not suited to an IVA or Debt Management Plan?

Hi,

 

Sorry i've been so busy recently and havent had the chance to check this page.

 

We get all of our data from loan and credit card companies, so when people apply for loans or credit cards . . . the often leave a box unticked that allows their details to be passed on. I will stress that there are NO financial details on the individuals, just their names and numbers.

 

"Can you clarify what you mean by "tell you immediately" and perhaps tell us what happens to those who are not suited to an IVA or Debt Management Plan?"

- Basically, you speak to a TSR first, and they just take a brief summary of your situation (Who you owe, aprox how much, if you are making any payments and if you are how much, if you are working and if you an aprox monthly income). The Personal Financial Advisor that you will be passed through to is an expert in all areas and will do an income and expenditure etc. If the Advisor can see that neither of the plans would be realistically affordable for yourselves due to any priority expenditures (rent, mortgage, food, bills etc) that are taking up most of your income . . . they will tell you that it wont be suitable. Also, for example, with an IVA, if you are a homeowner and have a large quantity of Equity in your house . . . that wont be suitable either. Basically the Advisor will cover more ground with you than the TSR will and will be very honest. The advisors wouldnt be doing their jobs if they werent working to find what is best for your own individual circumstances.

I understand the necesity for impartial advice within this situation, but i am merely just letting an insiders views and voice be heard along with those of clients of past, present and future.

I do not claim that we are the best or the worst. Im not saying "Choose us!". I'm just answering questions that were asked.

I really hope this all makes sense. Again, any questions, i'll try my best to answer.

Hi Lola

 

Thanks, a little jumbled up in my opinion mind, but I think I get the basic picture, sounds a little like processing to me (a sort of can we make any money out of this maybe, and if not....well)

 

Just my opinions based on this thread and the contributers to it.

 

Oh, and cannot really see where this part of the question has been answered -

 

and perhaps tell us what happens to those who are not suited to an IVA or debt managementlink3.gif Plan?

I would NOT recommend using The Money Group,

 

they say a small charge but this charge is DOUBLE what you agree to pay a month.

 

For example if you agree to pay £150 a month then TMG take your first two payments so none of this goes to the creditors they also have a monthly charge from the £150 as running costs.

 

I worked for them for a very short while and they are money driven idiots.

The verifiers will say everything and anything to get you to agree to go to an adviser as its commision based.

 

The CCCS or CAB are a good way to go although you have to write to creditors atleast ALL your money goes to your debts.

You can arrange for debts to be frozen.

DO NOT GO WITH TMG,

 

they throw facts at you to make them seem amazing but their are plenty of DM companies out there with cheaper fees or FREE.

 

Also before i forget whent they say

"can write off up to 75% of unsecured finance"

 

they mean an IVA so dont get brought in by that line as its easy to hook people in by that.

Yes, and phoning day after day when you have been told the person is not interested? I suppose that is simply out of the goodness of your heart.

This is simply preying on the vulnerable. Financial 'ambulance chasing'.
