    • I'm after some advice before I fill in and return the section 172 "request for driver name and address".  I am the registered keeper of the vehicle stated . The alleged offence (Exceeding variable Motorway speed limit 68mph in a 60mph zone) was committed on 29/07/2020, the NIP is dated 31/07/2020.  On Wednesday the 29th July 2020 a friend and I were driving for a much needed break from South Wales to spend a few days in Yorkshire, we shared the driving for the 4.5 hour journey at just over an hour at a time each.  My problem is this, 1.I have no idea of the location or recollection of the place to which the police refer (M1 Northbound Duckmanton Derbyshire?)  and 2. I cannot say with any accuracy which of us were the driver at that particular time.  I have a clean driving licence and am usually very speed aware using the cruise control at most times. an offence for a mere 8mph on a motorway with everything that is going on at the moment seems extremely harsh IMO.   I would much appreciate if anyone could offer help / advice at what I should do next? Many thanks  🙁
    • Hello just asking,? I purchased a discount new cooker as it had cosmetic damage, paid £250 After a few days I noticed the fan never went off, I contacted the company and they finally collected the cooker and took it away, ( for 7 days) And fixed it,   It never seamt right? It steamed up in the clock panel and the oven door was mis-lined It had multiple dints in the sides Top panel missing on the door to stop food dropping in, Shelving didn’t fit well Then main fan started to rattle and tap   I put up with all this as it was *discounted Then one day whilst cooking we could smell a funny smell Turns out the wires had melted on the back of cooker I contacted the company again and it took a lot of phone calls to try and get the problem dealt with, speaking to several different staff....I wanted a refund or replacement I had had the cooker 6 months just! I asked for a refund or replacement    I contacted trading standards and citizens advice and they advised me what steps to take! Finally the company offered to replace the cooker, then later changed! As they explained that nothing came in to replace it they were too damaged! ( been told they buy at auction damaged) They wanted to look at the cooker and inspect the damage themselves, so I agreed they collected the cooker, No update, or communication I had to constantly chase them up Nothing was sorted out with 7 days we had no cooker, I threatened Trading standards were now involved Last thing on a Friday in June they rang to say I can collect the cooker it’s fixed!!!! I had expressed all along I didn’t feel safe using this cooker anymore with my family I didn’t want this cooker fixing again ( by whom) They started to blame me and said I should be grateful they aren’t charging me for the repair!   Still today in August this is not resolved  Trading standards have been useless  Citizens advice have told me to take them to small claims court!???? I have had to purchase another cooker  As I’ve been left without one.   I am in a vulnerable situation in life, Im a carer for my husband and have children and have no one to help me sort this mess out! I am struggling with making the county court claim ? What shall I do?   ( sorry for long message) ✨
    • The committee's report is pretty damning, isn't it? The Home Office refused to supply the scientific evidence it said its decisions were based on and you can possibly see Demonic's hand in this - he has form for ignoring select committees.
    • and that facts start to come out 'Inexplicable' failure to quarantine travellers to the UK made pandemic 'far worse', say MPs UK ‘almost unique’ in rejecting border checks in crucial March period – without scientific basis – as hundreds of infected passengers arrived every day   https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/coronavirus-uk-quarantine-travel-cases-deaths-covid-a9653451.html   "Strikingly, it says the Home Office refused to set out any scientific advice to explain the “grave error”, despite repeatedly promising to do so – a stance attacked as “completely unacceptable”."   So even aside from not testing in any way people who returned: "Yvette Cooper, the committee’s chair, said the critical mistake was the decision on 13 March – 10 days before lockdown – “to remove all self-isolation guidance for travellers arriving in the UK”."   "The MPs also pour scorn on the Home Office’s argument that 99.9 per cent of arrivals are obeying requirements to quarantine for two weeks, finally introduced in June. They describe the claim, made by home secretary Priti Patel as “unreliable”, because it appeared to be based only a limited number of compliance checks made and three fines issued."       So not only did Johnsons cronies NOT make any efforts whatsoever to test people returning, and NOT properly check people were self isolating, they actually stopped telling returnees to self isolate for 10 days before the country was locked down as the number of epidemic infections exploded.   Wonder why?   "The committee’s inquiry heard that, in the crucial 10 days between scrapping isolation guidance and the lockdown, up to 10,000 infected people arrived."

    • 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 actually posted these a few days ago but I can't seem to find them via search since the forum change, still looking for some thoughts regarding enforceability. Thanks.

took 16 mths to receive mine.

 

Wow, mine came pretty quick, about 7 days after the request. It makes you wonder why they bothered to wait so long if all they were going to do was send reams of T&C's.

My credit agreement - or lack of one - was originally with The Associates. Then taken over by Citicard. I originally sent a section 78 request to them about three years ago and received nothing whatsoever from them, just threats and a blank sheet of paper with recent t and c's attached. A month or so ago I received another legal threat from 1st Credit. I wrote to them requesting that they confirm whether or not they held an executable credit agreement for the account. Explained that they were obliged to confirm or deny this under OFT guidelines and that I would report their non-compliance should they not reply to that specific question. Also mentioned section 2 of the Fraud Act to them. Above all I highlighted in bold text the fact that this was NOT about a section 78 request. This allows them to reply with next to nothing and continue harrassment. Surprisingly, they replied almost immediately. They admitted that they did not currently hold an agreement for the account. That although they could not threaten legal action they could suggest a settlement on the account. I replied thanking them for confirming there is no agreement in writing and declining their offer. Haven't heard from them since. Write to their compliance officer and ask them to confirm whether or not they hold and executable agreement for the account, as required under OFT guidelines

Looking for a quick piece of advice, I wrote to citi, now opus, with a full and final offer (roughly 5%) and included the following terms...

I will be released from any liability concerning this debt.

Neither you nor any associate company will pursue me for the remainder of the balance.

Any remaining balance will not be sold to a third party.

Any remaining balance will be written off and the balance set to zero.

All negative markers registered with all credit reference agencies are removed.

The account marked as “satisfied” with all credit reference agencies.

 

They wrote back and said they couldn't accept 5% but would accept a figure which works out as roughly 10% as full and final settlement, they used those words specifically but no mention of my other terms.

 

I'm quite happy to go ahead with the figure they suggest but I'm concerned it leaves me open to the remainder of the balance being sold on as the figure they suggest is not the same as the one on my original letter (hope that makes sense).

 

Any thoughts? Would it be safe to include a cheque with another letter again stipulating the terms and a note to say that they should only bank the cheque if they agree?

You have to reinforce your offer and make it plain that is on those terms only,this letter I would send RD.

There must be all the terms and conditions

of the original, and any varied T& C's your name

and address and theirs, you should have been supplied

with a statement of account.

ok. I have 5 pages which appear to be the term and condition (no signature), it has my name and their name/address. No statement of account. Can they still use this to enforce the debt - considering the card was pre-april 2007 ?

Best start your own thread mate, saves some potential confusion.

 

To attach a doc, I upload it to photobucket (or similar) and link to that.

 

 

As an update to this thread (which I'd forgotten about, thanks bsanger :) )I didn't do the f&f because they never agreed to the terms. I'm thinking of trying again citing an imminent reduction in payments as a sweetener. The payment reduction is genuine because my mortgage will go up next month as has insurace and the general cost of living. Should be fun seeing how the creditors react to that :D

This account has now been sold to Cabot. :(

 

The notice of assignment seems reasonable.

th_OpusNOAtocabot.jpgth_CabotNOAfromopus.jpg

 

I have no idea where Cabot get the 12% interest though. They state I should be continuing with my current arrangement which is a few quid a month with interest frozen. Nowhere does it say how to pay by standing order either:roll:

 

I really, REALLY baulk at the thought of paying Cabot a penny but they do actually have the correct balance which amazed me.

 

Any thoughts on how to play it? If Cabot genuinely are determined to charge 12% interest then I'm as well not paying anything.

I have no idea if they can sell a debt that's being repaid as agreed and then change the terms?
