    • And as for “what if I get sick the last week” (or those last three days)......   well, you’d get sick pay. Would you go into your new workplace?   HMRC may not be bothered by 2 overlapping jobs of course, but if NHS CFS (counter fraud And security) noticed that either: a) you were claiming over-lapping sick pay for 2 jobs, or b) you were claiming sick pay for one job while well enough to turn in for the other: expect them to view at least one of the sick pay claims as fraudulent!   if you annoy your “difficult” manager : they might be difficult enough to highlight it for the local NHS CF specialist
    • Hello, Can someone advise if the attached is a valid charge please?  I had parked in the car park and paid but then got delayed and have ended up with a ticket for parking longer than I should have done.   I know they will refuse the appeal but is this charge enforceable?   Charge Notice.pdf
    • The dealer is called Carwise in Epping. It's not the most established of premises. When i was there i'd say there was about 10-15 cars inside and an office. I've seen these reviews of them which seem to replicate my experience. https://www.cardealerreviews.co.uk/dealership/hr-autos-epping-essex-england (note previous name). It's quite worrying.    
    • To me, it isn't just about social distancing and hygiene measures. I'm far from the first to say it but until there's a reliable track and trace system, I don't think this can be managed properly.   Children may not suffer as much as adults, although some do, they can be asymptomatic and pass on the virus to the rest of the family.   https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/lockdown-david-king-second-wave-18739973
    • When will most schools actually re-open in September ?   And when they open, will they be providing teaching over the number hours 9am to 3pm  ?   I am thinking of the school I attended, which was a large Victorian building, with many modern extensions.  The classrooms which could accommodate about 35 Children elbow to elbow, will only be able to accommodate 20 at the most with any reasonable distancing.   Or does the whole class  of say 35 stay in a bubble and the teachers move around to teach the different subjects ?    I can see many schools opening later in September, not for all pupils for all days and not doing the full hours.   This is going to be very difficult to manage for all those concerned, including parents looking to return to work.

    • 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,

Not sure if anyone can help?

I have a CCJ from Microlend which has been coming out of my wages for over a year, it currently has a balance of £120 left to pay yet they have managed to get a hold of my bank details and taken £600 from my account, when I emailed they said they refuse to speak to me.

 

My Bank have refunded the money but now Microlend have sent them the original loan docs, how are they justified to take more than the court judgement was in the first place and what can I do to resolve this? I tried to contact the CAB but they didnt even come back to me.

Hey, i had a CCJ from Micro Lend in the past too. What i realised is that after the CCJ is issued other charges for an attachment of earnings or collection or court fees for example could apply afterwards... which is probably why the extra payment... If the bank have refunded the money what's the issue? I don't mean to be harsh - but i doubt there is much that can be done... i'm sure someone else will be along shortly with more advise... jamie.

I would to be on the safe side open a new account and so preventing them from trying to extract this money again. Good that you got the monies repaid but you must protect yourself with a new account because the bank may not be so favourable next time hun.

I have changed banks completely now but the company are trying to get the money back off the bank by contesting it and sending the court paperwork in, I have been in contact with the court and have to ring them back as tey said it doesnt sound right what they are doing but need to look into it,

If they get the money back it will leave me in debt on my old account which I dont want while I am trying to sort out my finances and credit rating.

As the account is closed and there is no balance it is highly unlikely that the bank will allow these funds to go ahead, infact id be astounded if they did. Good move in contacting the courts about this. Just be very wary about applying for any credit as these are very crafty in trying to obtain new account details.

yeah I have learnt that the hard way as I cannot see how they got my new details as its a new bank from when I originally took the loan out with them, they have shot themselves in the foot slightly as i have an email from them saying they are unwilling to correspond with me and will ignore any emails/phonecalls from me to discuss the matter.

No as of yet I have not had it back ,my bank will not refund it as they sent the original loan paperwork to say I owed the money (i only owe £106 out of the £530 they took), I have contacted the court to stop the attatchment which they wont however the judge has written a letter for me to say they are entitled to take no more from me than the attatchment which is owing which is £106 and as this legal order is in place they should not access my bank account, he has advised me to take legal advice,

 

I have emailed microlend today giving them 14 days to return the money pwed to me before I report the m to the police for fraudulently accessing my account and take legal advice regarding taking them to court to get my money back, I have also told them I will b going to the papers if they refuse to co-operate.

 

I will not be letting this rest until I have my money back!!

Counter claim against them, and claim multiple costs for loss of funds, that might make them wake up - have you contacted the police about this, and your local MP.

 

The police arrest people for breaking court orders, and they have breached the court order BIGTIME...

sorry Jamie absolutly no offence here intended at all What I meant was They poss attempted to get actual Bank details IE sort code etc and try that way wouldn't be the first or last PDC to try this route. I myself have a CCJ (not Pay day company) and they courts deemd whaT I should pay and when. I infact disputed the companies charges and interest with the court and they took away the interest, PPI and charges as they deemed them to be disaprotionate.

toofie gap, none taken mate. Just trying to understand how, what and when!! Well done though. it seems if there is a CCJ already and an AOE that means the process with the courts has been gone through, not sure you can do much thereafter, but i'm not so clued up on it though.

Phone call today from Microlend asking where my cheque is to be sent, i have now received payment back into my account for all money taken (minus the amount outstanding on the court order) and also have written conf of what they have sent to the court to end the attatchment.

I am one happy lady and shows what a bit of perseverance can get you, once i got past the front line of "customer service" i actually got a lot more willingness to negotiate.

 

The deadline I set them was today to return my money before I took further action but atleast I now have my money back.
