    • Attachments (Exhibits)   FTMDave and I have called them "Attachments" but I note Andyorch used the term "Exhibits".  I don't think it makes any difference which you use but perhaps Exhibits is more correct.  Whichever you use, make sure you use the term consistently.  (i'm going to use Attachment for now).   You use Attachments as supporting evidence for things you mention in the numbered particulars of your claim.  Might be a report from a third party or a quote from a third party.  In the relevant numbered particular of your claim you refer to the appropriate Attachment supporting that part of the claim.  eg like this "(See Attachment A)".   You can use numbers or capital letters to identify each Attachment.  I don't think it matters which but be consistent in your usage.   It helps if the Attachments are organised and incorporated into your claim in a logical sequence.  (eg A, B, C etc)   Make sure each attachment is clearly labelled "Attachment A"  etc.   If it is not immediately clear to the reader what an attachment is, put a brief description.  Eg "Quote from XXXXX Ltd to complete unfinished plastering" or whatever.  Make sure the reader can understand what each attachment is.   Ideally each Attachment will be no more than one page.  So you can make the labelling of attachments even clearer by labelling them "Attachment A  -  page 1 of 1" etc etc.   If an attachment is longer than one page you label it "Attachment A - page 1 of 2" and then "Attachment A - page 2 of 2", or whatever it is.   By doing all that you are making it easier for the judge to follow - and you want the judge on your side...   Now - what you've posted in #109 is helpful because it adds up to to £16577.  Which is good.  But if I were the judge, I'd want to know where the individual items come from.     So what you have posted in #109 should - I suggest - be your final attachment.  Let's call it "Attachment H" for now.  So at the end of your particulars of counterclaim where you say you are claiming £16577 from the defendant, you put the reference "See Attachment H".   The judge then looks at Attachment H and sees a total of £16577.  What you then need on Attachment H next to each individual item on there, is a reference to which earlier Attachment that item comes from.  eg "See Attachment C".  The judge can then look at Attachment C and understand where the item on Attachment H comes from.  By doing that rigorously and methodically for each item on Attachment H you are justifying each item and the total of £16577.  Yes?   Your schedule in #109 is OK but raises questions that need answering.  eg: spelling as spotted by Honeybee13 Grand total as spotted by Honeybee13 TBA or estimates as per my previous post and Honeybee why is it in two separate sections (£8577 and £8000)? The item numbering is absolute garbage At the end of the day it is going to be the detail (or lack of detail) in your attachments that will win (or lose) you the case.  It has to be just right and you have to be consistent.  It has to be logical, methodical and consistent so it can be understood immediately.   I don't want you to give me answers to these questions.  I want you to act on them.   As I said earlier, don't post any more work you have done for now.  Wait until FTMDave is back this evening so we are all working from the same page at the same time.   If Andyorch or FTMDave suggest anything that disagrees with me, go with what they say.  They know more than me.   (I suspect one of them might suggest some kind of contents list identifying and listing all the different attachments)    
    • Hi again I sent my letter off on Monday, signed for delivery as I wanted to make sure it's got there, it was finally delivered yesterday Last night I had a text from them:   "There is a 50% settlement discount available on your account.  If you cannot pay in full this can be paid across 3 equal monthly instalments of £339.57.  To take advantage of this offer please visit" and then a website link.   Hopefully they will be in touch soon to say they've taken the letter on board and will leave me alone now.   I'll update this thread if I hear anything, it really helped me to see others had been in my situation. Fingers crossed
    • It hasnt caused tfl financial harm, those cards are paid for by the public purse. Your abuse of that is what you need to get acrossYour   id also state a criminal record will destroy your future career totally.   Dx
    • sure, this is the email i will send today unless there are any changes i should make?   Dear Sir/Madam,   I am emailing as I wish to ask for an out of court settlement regarding my case (case number). I realise that my actions have caused TFL financial harm and for that I am truly sorry, and would like to help remedy this in any way. Whilst there is no excuse for my actions, at the time, I was struggling to afford transport as a student working only 6 hours a week. Student finance did not provide maintenance for masters and on top of this, I was on universal credit during that time. I have since been paying for the travel using my bank card and despite going into overdraft multiple times, I continued to pay the full fare for the past 4 months and will continue to do so. This is a mistake I truly regret and am willing to pay the entire amount stated to settle this as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for your consideration.   Kind regards,

Ok heres the story..

Im 53 and been out of work since may2010..I was at an agency prior to that and contract finished...


I have tried and tried to find work and this has been severly hindered by my not being able to drive and i fear my age!!..I apply for anything and everything..Mostly i dont even get replies!! That makes me cross :(


At the jobcentre,that i now have to attend weekly..they always comment on how much i do in the week to fulfill my commitment to get back into work but i think they all live in a different world in there where jobs are plentilful..


I was even made to go for a post as an opticians assistant (must have experience)

I have no qualification and when i took them in the rejection letter to show him ..he said "we dont want to see those do we"!!!!??? He kept saying you must show artistic license???


Now my problem..I was given a post to go for 3 weeks ago at the jsa in BOOTS 28 miles away from where i live...I would have had to catch train and a bus...But i applied on line..for 3 actually 2 temp posts and one permanant... I received no email to say they had received my application ...so a week later i wrote to the store and enclosed a cv...Still no reply... I didnt use recorded delivery...I just have enough money to buy a stamp....


Yesterday i went onto the boots website and applied for another job nearer to home and again no email from them to say they had received my application... Today i receive a letter from jsa saying a doubt has arisen regarding my cliam for jsa..As i didnt follow up the boots job!! I could cry...What more do i have to do...


I have no proof i did all i did..Like i said most dont even have the common decency to say thanks but no thanks.... If im sanctioned and lose the pittance i do receive i shall lose my home get into serious debt and god knows what else...


The best part is i am on medication for chronic depression and clinging on by the skin of my teeth to stay in the real world and not let this illness take over me... I refused a sick note on the grounds i wanted to continue to look for work... Only to get a kick in the teeth for my efforts...


I even applied for 12 hours cleaning tha pays the same as js a just so i didnt have to go in there anymore and i didnt even get that !!!


Maybe i should take the sicknote but then i will have even worse problems trying to proove to atos doctors that i am poorly....


What the hell am i going to do??? I would appreciate some advise please im desperate tilly

Hi Tilly,

So far as sanctions and proof of applying for jobs goes, I would suggest that you print out any job applications that you apply for on line; before submitting the application itself. I would also recommend print out the e-mail once it has been sent, as the application form quite often is an attachment to an e-mail. This will show that you are doing your best. Once you have sent your e-mail for a job, go to your sent folder open the e-mail and print it out. I do hope you have a printer. Then keep all of the e-mails and applications , so you can produce them when requested to do so. DO NOT ever throw any of them away. Kepp all of them until you have found a job. Sometimes you keep them for say three months then throw them away, but then something happens and it comes back to bite you. Hope this helps a little.


Cheers - S.G.
