    • The HA might be jointly liable with the other renter, if they have not done anything and allowed the interference to continue.  As BF indicates talk to others affected, and go after t him as a group, and involve the HA as they are also remiss permitting the interference.   Just an aside, wonder if the HA would like people to vacate and end their garage tenacy as they have other ideas for the land.  I know of HA's in wales that wanted top demolish and use the land for building living units as income barely sufficient to maintain the garages.
    • Thank You Bankfodder. What do you mean by the statement I have been offered?   I really eish i could make it a clean break and return the car as I want this to end and I dont really want a car without service history but I feel I am stuck in a hard place. The MOT is due next month and the warnings on the car are becoming more frequent. Either way I'm sure i will end up having to fix it.
    • Being objective, it could be that they accept you've cancelled the DD mandate and you can no longer access the gym.   But that does not rule out them arguing that you cancelled early or without the notice they require.   Let's not second guess though - let us know if they come after you for more, or if they let it rest.
    • I'm asking this as a result of a recent experience as i know some of you are really knowledgeable about disciplinarys. I know it's going to sound a bit cryptic but here goes.   So without giving too much away, if a local authority staff member is caught somewhere they should not be, doing something they should not be doing (usually a criminal record)  & when confronted by a member of the public tells that member of public to F' off, makes derogatory remarks about them, then on camera gives them the middle finger (all backed by witness statement), what sort of hope does that person have of retaining their job?   Clearly gross misconduct, but realistically is this survivable?

    • 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

Hi guys, hope you can help.

I had an 18 month contract with Carephone Warehouse that was due to expire in April this year.

At the end of last year I got an iPhone on O2.

 

On January 11th, I called up to cancel my contract and paid off the balance of the contract over the phone. I orignially rang up purely for a cancellation, but they said it might be a good idea to get a PAC and port to a PAYG so I did.

 

At the time they said that if I didn't use the PAC within 30 days it would expire.

I never used the PAC, didn't see the need.

 

In May this year I received a letter from CPW saying they couldn't take the money from my account due to insuffiecient funds.

It turns out that what they meant by the 'it expires after 30 days', was that if I didn't use the PAC the PAC would expire and my contract would continue as normal. So the money I paid off up front paid for Jan, Feb, and March and then the contract rolled over in April.

 

I rang them up to complain and they said that was how all the networks worked and that it was in my terms and conditions. I downloaded a copy of the T&C from the website and there is no reference to this, it just says call them if I wish to cancel early.

 

I cancelled the account again at that point and I then got a bill for two months line rental of £40 which I still dispute. I spoke to them a couple of times and they refused to let me listen to the conversation I had from when I paid the contract off. If they had said to me at that time that I needed to use the PAC or the contract would roll over I would have obviously used it.

 

I then wrote to them pointing out thier T&C and and requesting a deadlock letter so I could then refer the case to the ombudsman, I then got a reply from them saying that they disagreed with me and that was that. Since then I had a letter from Buchannen Clark & Wells debt collectors so the amount has now gone up to £65 because the debt collectors have now been involved.

 

I know the amount was only £40 but it was the principle of the matter. Now the debt collectors are getting involved I'm getting a little nervous. Should I stand firm because it's the right thing or should I just pay up so it goes away?

Cheers.

When you accept a PAC, that is how you terminate the contract (by porting the number away). Not porting the number is the same as not cancelling the contract (however that should have been explained to you BEFORE this incedent rather than on an internet forum after :()

 

Now, DCA's are nothing to get nervous about. They're bullys with no powers. However, most mobile contracts have the power to lodge a default on your credit report that can harm you getting credit in the future. As you have recieved a DEADLOCK letter, have you not taken the complaint to Otelo?
