    • Can you ask your GP to get a second opinion on the NHS?  (I ought to know because I'm a retired NHS manager, but worked in mental health where x-rays didn't really feature very much(!).)   Your GP may be reluctant for various reasons but you've got nothing to lose by asking.  Might be difficult if there's only one consultant in that specialty locally.   If that is a non-starter, you could ask your GP for a private referral if any of the relevant specialists run private clinics.  Your son'll get seen quicker and an initial private consultation shouldn't cost more than about a couple of hundred quid.  Then take it from there.   (Emphasise to your GP what your real concerns are and why you have them - even if it's just "I looked it up on the internet and it looks like this which can lead to serious complications.  What do you think?  I'm really worried...")   EDIT:  Just looked on my local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group website and searched for "second opinion" but nothing comes up...  I thought you were entitled to one - you'll have to ask your GP.  Or look on your own CCG site.  Oh - despite being a NHS manager I have paid to see a consultant privately.  £150 well spent - if you can afford it... which I appreciate not everyone can.
    • dont think they are even allowed to offer settlement by instalments, they are not creditors.   read the letter carefully and understand what it doesn't actually say....like the word WILL anywhere.   they,  a DCA, can't recommend anything and their client most certainly wouldn't have disclosed anything to a powerless DCA about what their solicitors might or might not have said to them. and ofcourse a solicitor is in no position whatsoever to suggest to their client they get back to the DCA and tell the DCA to tell you their client will accept instalments!   the letter is a load of ole BS that is concocted by the dca without any input or knowledge of their client nor their clients solicitor...   dx      
    • The paediatric orthopaedic consultant at the fracture clinic told us today that he believes it is just a sprain behind the knee. I'm concerned my GP will say something along the lines of, 'you have seen a consultant, he says it will heal in 2 to 3 weeks, you don't know more than him!', or something like that. It's just that I believe I can clearly see a fracture. And as there was no fall or hard knock, only a very tightly streched knee bending at an angle behind, with a load. I figured that the temdon must have pulled some bone up. And thats the injury I found online. I totally take on board what you are saying. You are correct. I guess I'll see what my GP says tomorrow, hopefully she allows me to email the images, if she doesent have access to them already. Thanks again

    • Make a appointment ASAP to see child GP and let them sort it out and not Dr Google.   You may need to see a paediatric orthopaedic consultant for advice, a GP can refer the child if necessary.

    • 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

Hey Guys

 

Firstly, apologies if this goes on a bit...

 

I have for years known that my foolish youth would catch up with me, Im not pretending that i didnt spend the money in the first place or that I should have avoided running up my bank charges but i just dont know what to do now as these companies are completly unaproachable and defiantly rude!

 

Philips are chasing me for a debt orignally that i ran up with Barclays (My graduate overdraft) in arround 1999 - 2000. It was bounced between so many diferent DCA's over years and I think ended up with hillesden securites or Direct Legal?

 

I simply dont know who owns the debt now, I cant remember the last time i acknoweldged it, So i have asked philips three times now to give me some infomation as to who they are and what right they have to persue me.

 

They have ignored each and every request and today i have received a PRE VISIT Notice from them.

 

Im at my wits end, Im not running from them but i want to know that im paying someone thats gonig to put it towards my debt and not pocket it.

 

My last letter to them was thus:

 

Philips

PO Box 231

Darlington

DL1 9GG

Dear Sirs,

Notice of Fault

DO NOT IGNORE THIS NOTICE

Notice to Principal is Notice to Agent; Notice to Agent is Notice to Principal.

Further letters which are received where you have deliberately ignored my correspondence will be passed to the office of fair trading.

If intent is felt that you might visit my home or intimidate me further without responding to my written requests, there will be a consultation with my local police station on the grounds of harassment and deformation of character.

Regarding Reference:xxxxxxxx, your correspondence xxxxxx

Please read the following Notice thoroughly and carefully before responding. It is a notice. It informs you. It means what it says.

Re: Notice and Demand of xxxxxxxx

On xxxxxxxx you received my above-referenced Notice and Demand. Said correspondence contained Notice that you are in a condition of estoppel with regard to any claims against me, pending the presentation of specifically demanded evidence. Said evidence was reasonably demanded in order to verify any claims you may have against me. You were given thirty (30) days to present such evidence, or to abandon your claims.

More than thirty (30) days have passed since your receipt of my letter, in which time you have made no responsive answer to my good faith Demand. Therefore, notice is hereby given that you are in a condition of fault and, in accordance with the terms of said Notice and Demand you have abandoned any claim.

1. that you are or were a third party interloper;

2. that you have or had no legal standing;

3. that you have or had no first-hand knowledge of this matter;

4. that your claim is or was fraudulent;

5. that you will pursue this matter no further.

Further, you agree:

6. that you accept liability for any damages I suffer or suffered as a result of your actions;

7. that any negative remarks made to a credit reference agency will be removed and confirmation of said removal sent to me within thirty days of this communication;

 

As a gesture of good faith, I hereby grant you an additional ten (10) days from your receipt of this communication to present the evidence demanded in my above-referenced Notice and Demand. Notice is hereby given that if no responsive answer is received after such time elapses, then a Notice of Default shall issue. Such default will have the effect of discharging forever any claims you have in this regard, but will not remove your obligation to remove negative information you may have given to any credit reference agency. If you do not respond within ten (10) days with either the demanded evidence of your claim, or reasonable objections as to why you should not be obligated to comply, in the form specified, I may presume you prefer to abandon your claim and that any alleged contract between us is invalid and voidable.

You are hereby also notified that for my time spent reading, preparing, making or answering communications of any sort related with this matter, with yourself or any other agent, officer, associate or employee of Protagonist Name or any other party, I will apply fees according to the following schedule, for which you agree to be liable:

FEE SCHEDULE

Telephonic conversations:

£400/hour or part thereof.

Emails:

£200 for each and every instance.

Letters:

£200 for each and every instance.

Research:

£100/hour or part thereof.

 

 

If it should be necessary for this matter to come to court, which I sincerely hope it does not, you agree to be liable to pay for my time away from home at 100/hour, plus travel, food and accommodation expenses.

Further to this I will not accept any further intimidating letters from you.

I will presume silence to mean acquiescence in all these matters.

Yours sincerely without ill-will, vexation or frivolity,

 

 

If this is ignored, what do i do next?? :-x

Please and thank you in advance

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Acc/Ref No

 

You have contacted us regarding the account with the above reference number, which you claim is owed by ourselves.

 

We would point out that under the Limitation Act 1980 Section 5 “an action founded on simple contract shall not be brought after the expiration of six years from the date on which the cause of action accrued.”

 

We would also point out that the OFT say under their Debt Collection Guidance on statute barred debt that “it is unfair to pursue the debt if the debtor has heard nothing from the creditor during the relevant limitation period”.

 

The last payment of this alleged debt was made over six years ago and no further acknowledgement or payment has been made since that time. Unless you can provide evidence of payment or written contact from us in the relevant period under Section 5 of the Limitation Act, we suggest that you are no longer able to take any court action against us to recover the alleged amount claimed.

 

The OFT Debt Collection Guidance states further that “continuing to press for payment after a debtor has stated that they will not be paying a debt because it is statute barred could amount to harassment contrary to CPUTR2008

 

We await your written confirmation that this matter is now closed and that no further contact will be made concerning the above account after that last letter.

 

We look forward to your reply.

 

Yours faithfully DO NOT SIGN

A few weeks ago a bunch of us caggers all received A Notice of Instruction then a Demand For Payment on the same days all from Philips. None of us knew what the debts were for, and a few of us had Goldfish Bank Limited on the letters. None of us had ever had Goldfish Accounts so we ignored.

 

Today I too have received a Pre-Visit Notice from Philips again in respect of my Goldfish Account. I hope they do come because all I have from Goldfish is a rejection letter when I applied for a Card!!! and I certainly do not owe them in excess of 5 grand!! So I will have my righteous indignation face on when they comesHa_biggrin5.gif


Every journey begins with a single step :):)

 

Please note: I have no qualifications in this area - my advice is learned from the wonderful members of this Forum. Thanks to you all for your help.

Move all banking activity to another banking group if you have a dispute - your funds can be used to offset debts within the same group.

Be careful with Banking details (card/account numbers) as these can be used to take unauthorised payments.

Hi

Welcome to The Consumer Action Group.

 

 

I am just letting you know that as you haven't had any replies to your post yet, it might be better if you post your message again in an appropriate sub-forum. You will get lots of help there.

 

Also take some time to read around the forum and get used to the layout. It is a big forum and takes a lot of getting used to.

 

 

Once you start to find your way, you will soon realise that it is fairly easy to get round and to get the help you need.

 

It can be bit confusing at first.


Please be advised that my time will be limited for the next few weeks.Thanks for your understanding.
