    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry. 
    • The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many countries into recession - but what exactly is it and how could it affect you? View the full article
    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • 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 merbie

 

Don't panic, well for starters, phoning you at work is against OFT guidelines. That incident should be reported to the OFT. You should also report the matter to Consumer Direct/Trading Standards.

Send this letter Recorded. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/resources/templates-library/52-harassment

Make sure you write CC: Trading Standards, with the address of your local office.

In the letter also write that the contact they attempted to make at your place has been reported to trading standards/OFT.

Hi Merbie

hI THERE!

i GAVE IN AND STARTED A PAYMENT PLAN WITH THEM AS CALLS GOT TOO MUCH,

 

I WAS WONDERING IF IT S TOO LATE TO CCA REQUEST THEM.

 

I MISSED LAST MONTHS AND NOW THERE PHONING AGAIN!!

 

ALSO THIS IS FOR A PAYDAY LOAN,

 

CAN IT BE ENFORCED IF IT IS NOT A SIGNATURE BUT A TYPED IN NAME AS U DO ON THESE THINGS

Defiently CCA them as i can honestly say that the chances are it is unenforcable

and that the amount applied for will show on the agreement

and not that of what was actually loaned to you,

 

therefore the interests amounts will be incorrect,

which also makes it unenforcable.

 

I have dealt with payday loan companies before for my friends and won every time on uneforcable agreements,

 

without having to goto court.

 

Plus when you get the agreement look at the bottom of it as i bet it will have a computer file directory simimlar

to C:\Users\(my username)\Documents\Backup 1\debt mangement etc with a date on the end.

 

that date will be vital too as it will show when the agreement was last edited,

 

if the date is after the date in which you applied/recieved the loan and closer to when you made your request,

 

then its evidence of either tampering or possible proof that the agreement was created on that date and not the date shown in the actual agreement.

Which payday company is involved and how much have you repaid of the original loan amount (this does NOT include inflated interest, default fees etc). With payday loans the rule of thumb is the original loan amount plus one months interest payment, particularly if the loan has been rolled over several times. The name of the company is important as several of these have been in trouble with the OFT recently.

 

Like Teaboy2 it is relatively easy to destroy their agreements and their particulars of claim should they try court, I've had six claims thrown out by the courts before it got to judgement and one is in mediation at the moment... they bumped £150 up to £1,500 and tried to bankrupt the defendant. If we win on the mediation side details will be available on CAG for others to use.

Ignore it, chances are they have not yet processed your CCA request prior to that letter being printed and sent.

 

Once it has been 12 days from them receiving your CCA request, send them the below letter.

 

ACCOUNT IN DISPUTE

 

Date:

 

Ref:

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Thank you for your letter of xx/xx/xx, the contents of which have been noted. (Delete if no letter mentioning you request has been received by you)

 

You have failed to respond to my legal request to supply me a true copy of the original Consumer Credit Agreement for the above account.

 

On **DATE** I made a formal request for a true signed agreement for the alleged account under consumer credit Act 1974 s77/78. This was signed for as delivered on the **DATE**

You have failed to comply with my request, and as such the account entered default on **DATE** (12+2 working days after you made the initial request).

 

The document that you are obliged to send me is a true copy of the executed agreement that contained all of the prescribed terms, all other required terms and statutory notices and was signed by both your company and myself as defined in section 61(1) of CCA 74 and subsequent Statutory Instruments. If the executed agreement contained any reference to any other document, you are also obliged to send me a copy of that document. In addition a full statement of this account should have been sent to me detailing all debits and credits to the account.

 

Furthermore, you are aware that the Consumer Credit Act allows 12 working days for a request for a true copy of a credit agreement to be carried out before you/your client enters into a default situation.

 

This limit has expired.

 

As you are no doubt aware section 78(6) states:

 

If the creditor fails to comply with Subsection (1)

 

(a) He is not entitled , while the default continues, to enforce the agreement.

 

Therefore this account has become currently unenforceable at law.

 

As you have failed to comply with a lawful request for a true, signed copy of the said agreement and other relevant documents mentioned in it, Failed to send a full statement of the account and Failed to provide any of the documentation requested. You will also be aware of the CPUTR 2008 and the OFT's guidelines on debt collectionlink3.gif which state under the title Deceptive and/or unfair methods - Examples of unfair practices are as follows - 2.8

 

(i) - 'Failing to investigate and/or provide details as appropriate, when a debt is queried or disputed, possibly resulting in debtors being wrongly pursued'

 

(k) - 'Not ceasing collection activity whilst investigating a reasonable queried or disputed debt'

 

Consequentially any legal action you pursue will be averred as both UNLAWFUL and VEXATIOUS.

 

Furthermore I shall counterclaim that any such action constitutes unlawful harassment.

 

I reserve the right to report your actions to any such regulatory authorities as I see fit.

You have 21 days from receiving this letter to contact me with your intentions to resolve this matter which is now a formal complaint.

 

 

I look forward to hearing from you. This should be in writing, I have no wish to correspond by telephone.

 

Yours faithfully

Yep... Thats pretty much the standard letter they send out when waiting for the original creditor to forward them the paperwork. So sit back and wait and see what they send you next.

Yes still send the letter above after the 12+2 days have passed.

 

As for the signature in the online application/agreement, it doesn't change anything really. But either way do not sign your letters to them, just print your name.

Can you scan and post up a copy minus your personal and account details, as we need to see the whole document. I wouldn't worry about the signiture as its the rest of the document thats important.

Make an official complaint to Freds.... and send by rc. delivery. Sounds like a ploy before Mr. Carter issues his papers (to the wrong address); hoping for a CCJ by default.

No.... you write back and make a formal complaint. The OFT won't help you as an individual.... so it won't do you any favours to dwell upon them too much. You will need to be pro-active with Freds. By making a complaint, you are putting the onus upon them to issue a written response to it.
