    • you will have to start opening any mail that arrives so you can head problems off at the pass
    • we will need more details of hjow the phone sim ad bank accout are linked and why insurance seems to be what they are grouching about. Start at the beginning, name the bank and phone provider and whilst you are at it go through your bank statements to see if there is anything that resembles what yiyu are accused of. Also look at your credit files and see who has been  putting their feet all over it. if you have a great block of red inkl courtesy fo a phone provider them that will be the link but also understand that you might not have bought a data contract but some other product linked to the phone or not connected to it in any way
    • so they have wasted a bit of time on something that is pointless for both parties. A bank statement is not proof of debt, even if it shows the account is in the red because the terms of the account and any other associated accounts were not included. Who knows, the Norwegian bank may have agreed a contract with you that says you dont have to pay them unless you feel like it nd what proof do CLI have that isnt the case? If you havent paid a bean since 2013 they cant collect anyway as they will have to use UK law to make a claim so debt is SB and if you havent serviced the debt in Norway since 2008 they are dead in the water there, assuming they want to pay for a ferry trip for you in the first place
    • Looking for some advice, back in 2015 I bought a ee sim card for data not a mobile phone and it was not on a contract it was a monthly thing where as I understood I paid £20 and had 20gb of data to use.   I stopped topping up after 2 months and the data stopped, after applying for a c/c I was refused and my bank account was cancelled and I was told to check CIFAS file and was shocked to find   First party fraud - (Opening an account or other facility for a fraudulent purpose or the fraudulent misuse of an account or facility;or taking out an insurance policy for a fraudulent purpose or the fraudulent misuseof an insurance policy and/or insurance policy documentation)   Which looks like they are saying I opened my bank account to commit fraud, I had the bank account 7 years before.   So any ideas how I go about getting this removed
    • The SRA should take action but they dont and I think one of the reasons is the lack of court cases to show  malfeasance.

    • 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 All, I wonder if someone could offer some advice. I daughter has been having many problems with her employer. I hope to be able to tell the whole sorry story on here soon but I first need to check that my daughter is ok with that. But for now:- My daughter is at the end of her paid maternity leave and has asked for her entitlement of 3 more months unpaid leave, which has not gone down well with her employer (his attitude has been appalling from the time she informed him that she was pregnant).My daughter is in the process of moving to a new privately rented house and of course references were required from her employer. The rental agent phoned today and told her that the employer had given a bad reference which could effect her new tenancy although she said that she could not tell my daughter what the reference said. My question is, can my daughter insist that she has a right to have a copy of that reference.

Sorry for the long winded post for just one question.

Regards

Greigster

You can make a subject access request to the employer or to the rental agent for a copy of the reference.

Thanks for that. Is a body that is not a public one, bound by this legislation and do they have to give the information after a Subject access request.

The Data Protection Act applies to anybody collating and storing personal information about you, whether an individual, private or public body. The request must be made by the person to whom the information relates, and should be made as a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 1998.

 

There may be a fee for providing the information, but this cannot exceed £10, and the organisation receiving the request must provide the information within 40 days of receiving the request or fee (if required).

 

There is a useful letter on the ICO_WEBSITE and some information to explain how the process works.


Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

Once you have it, she may have a claim for libel - a friend of mine recently received a bad reference, and on obtaining a copy, it appeared that the information was false - time off sick, lateness etc and on starting action for a libel claim, a solution was reached by retraction of the statement. If the reference is false, or contains irrelevant or libellous information, then your daughter may also have right to sue for damages - in the UK, a libellous statement is deemed false unless it can be proven as true - so the 'victim' is presumed to be right until the 'offender' can prove that what was written/given is true. Damages are liquidated, so what is awarded will be equivilant to the loss (or losses) suffered. Home insurance (if she has it) should pick this up under their legal cover (if this option has been taken).
