    • I'm after some advice before I fill in and return the section 172 "request for driver name and address".  I am the registered keeper of the vehicle stated . The alleged offence (Exceeding variable Motorway speed limit 68mph in a 60mph zone) was committed on 29/07/2020, the NIP is dated 31/07/2020.  On Wednesday the 29th July 2020 a friend and I were driving for a much needed break from South Wales to spend a few days in Yorkshire, we shared the driving for the 4.5 hour journey at just over an hour at a time each.  My problem is this, 1.I have no idea of the location or recollection of the place to which the police refer (M1 Northbound Duckmanton Derbyshire?)  and 2. I cannot say with any accuracy which of us were the driver at that particular time.  I have a clean driving licence and am usually very speed aware using the cruise control at most times. an offence for a mere 8mph on a motorway with everything that is going on at the moment seems extremely harsh IMO.   I would much appreciate if anyone could offer help / advice at what I should do next? Many thanks  🙁
    • Hello just asking,? I purchased a discount new cooker as it had cosmetic damage, paid £250 After a few days I noticed the fan never went off, I contacted the company and they finally collected the cooker and took it away, ( for 7 days) And fixed it,   It never seamt right? It steamed up in the clock panel and the oven door was mis-lined It had multiple dints in the sides Top panel missing on the door to stop food dropping in, Shelving didn’t fit well Then main fan started to rattle and tap   I put up with all this as it was *discounted Then one day whilst cooking we could smell a funny smell Turns out the wires had melted on the back of cooker I contacted the company again and it took a lot of phone calls to try and get the problem dealt with, speaking to several different staff....I wanted a refund or replacement I had had the cooker 6 months just! I asked for a refund or replacement    I contacted trading standards and citizens advice and they advised me what steps to take! Finally the company offered to replace the cooker, then later changed! As they explained that nothing came in to replace it they were too damaged! ( been told they buy at auction damaged) They wanted to look at the cooker and inspect the damage themselves, so I agreed they collected the cooker, No update, or communication I had to constantly chase them up Nothing was sorted out with 7 days we had no cooker, I threatened Trading standards were now involved Last thing on a Friday in June they rang to say I can collect the cooker it’s fixed!!!! I had expressed all along I didn’t feel safe using this cooker anymore with my family I didn’t want this cooker fixing again ( by whom) They started to blame me and said I should be grateful they aren’t charging me for the repair!   Still today in August this is not resolved  Trading standards have been useless  Citizens advice have told me to take them to small claims court!???? I have had to purchase another cooker  As I’ve been left without one.   I am in a vulnerable situation in life, Im a carer for my husband and have children and have no one to help me sort this mess out! I am struggling with making the county court claim ? What shall I do?   ( sorry for long message) ✨
    • The committee's report is pretty damning, isn't it? The Home Office refused to supply the scientific evidence it said its decisions were based on and you can possibly see Demonic's hand in this - he has form for ignoring select committees.
    • and that facts start to come out 'Inexplicable' failure to quarantine travellers to the UK made pandemic 'far worse', say MPs UK ‘almost unique’ in rejecting border checks in crucial March period – without scientific basis – as hundreds of infected passengers arrived every day   https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/coronavirus-uk-quarantine-travel-cases-deaths-covid-a9653451.html   "Strikingly, it says the Home Office refused to set out any scientific advice to explain the “grave error”, despite repeatedly promising to do so – a stance attacked as “completely unacceptable”."   So even aside from not testing in any way people who returned: "Yvette Cooper, the committee’s chair, said the critical mistake was the decision on 13 March – 10 days before lockdown – “to remove all self-isolation guidance for travellers arriving in the UK”."   "The MPs also pour scorn on the Home Office’s argument that 99.9 per cent of arrivals are obeying requirements to quarantine for two weeks, finally introduced in June. They describe the claim, made by home secretary Priti Patel as “unreliable”, because it appeared to be based only a limited number of compliance checks made and three fines issued."       So not only did Johnsons cronies NOT make any efforts whatsoever to test people returning, and NOT properly check people were self isolating, they actually stopped telling returnees to self isolate for 10 days before the country was locked down as the number of epidemic infections exploded.   Wonder why?   "The committee’s inquiry heard that, in the crucial 10 days between scrapping isolation guidance and the lockdown, up to 10,000 infected people arrived."

    • 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

Evening folks - I hope you can help me with an issue?

 

I've followed advice gleaned from this site and currently following the CCA process regarding my wife's debt with Barclaycard/Moorcroft.

 

I've now started the same process with Wescot regarding a balance that was owed to Royal Bank for a credit card. We sent the letter recorded delivery to Wescot with the £1 p.order, but Wescot have now returned the postal order with a letter asking us to resend the CCA request to RBoS?

 

Can anyone help? I think, as Wescot have been requesting payment (and gettign it from us for 3 years) that they should provide the CCA?

 

thanks,

TJ

With-hold any further payments and send the account in-dispute letter to Westcr*p.

Westcot know full well they have to pass the documentation on and then send you anything they recieve back from RBS.

s175 of CCA 1974 is very clear and as usual another DCA ignores the very act that they are supposed to be bound by by the OFT.

Report Westcot to the OFT, and also the Information Commissioners Office and Trading Standards via Consumer Direct just for good measure.

If it is your view that you are not the creditor, s.175 of the CCA 1974 applies in the case of a simple assignment, and places a duty upon you to pass this request to the creditor. In the case of an absolute assignment, you are a creditor as defined by s.189. If you contend that you purchased the rights but not the duties of any agreement, you are reminded that s.189 of the Act is clear that an assignment is of both rights and duties.

 

Add the above to the Account in Dispute letter:http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk...-is-in-dispute

The only person entitled to your Personal Finance details is a Judge not a DCA

 

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.

Ok - so I sent the account in dispute letter and received another reply from Wescot stating their client (RBS) has asked them to advise debtor to send all CCA requests direct to RBS, essentially repeating what they have said in their first response letter.

Broken record sydrome coming up I reckon?!

Do I ignore this letter having already sent the account in dispute letter with this added...

-or- do I re-write to Wescot re-stating the above?

I'm tempted to sit back and wait, but is that the best route to follow?

 

Any advice, as always, is greatly appreciated.

Hi TeeJay,

Ignore, Westcot knows the rules of the game, they try and bend them as best they can to suit themselves.

It's not your job to do Westcots work.

No use entering postal ping pong, costs you time and money and most DCA employees cannot read but some are advancing to Ladybird Books.

RBS have now passed this account to Moorcroft who have started to send threatening letters... do I send Moorcroft a letter advising the account is in dispute with Wescot and that RBS should not have passed this account on?

Hi folks - Moorcroft continue to send letters, even though the account is in dispute with Wescot for failing to reposnd to my CCA request. This is the latest from Moorcroft... can anyone provide some insight? The debt originally defaulted around 4 years ago and so may 'fall off' my credit report soon. Should I continue to ignore on the basis the account is in dispute with Wescot and should never have been sent to Moorcroft?

 

Thanks everyone for your help!

Hi Teejay,

 

Bulk standard Moorcraft rubbish, but the most important part is the discount offer, DCA's are very greedy and get as much has they can so this proves that a problem exists.

 

Send Moorcroft the letter copied and pasted below telling them that the account is in-dispute, do not sign, use 2nd class postage and get a proof of posting (thanks to Bazooka Boo for that bit about the postage that I wasn't aware of).

 

Take care

Re:- Account/Reference Number:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am in receipt of your letter dated INSERT DATE.

This account is in dispute with INSERT NAME OF ORIGINAL CREDITOR OR

DEBT COLLECTION AGENCY.

Not only is this a breach of the Consumer Protection From Unfair Trading

Regulations 2008 in line with the Office Of Fair Trading's Debt Collection

Guidelines, but also in breach of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and Data Protection

Act 1998

My previous dispute from INSERT DATE OF ORIGINAL DISPUTE LETTER has

NOT been answered.

As INSERT NAME OF ORIGINAL CREDITOR OR DEBT COLLECTION

AGENCY are now in default of my Consumer Credit Act agreement request and have

also breached s10 Data Protection Act request , I consider this account to be in

SERIOUS DISPUTE.

As you are aware while my Consumer Credit Act request remains in default

enforcement action is NOT permitted, under s127 this constitutes a complete defence

at law.

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

VEXATIOUS.

Now I would respectfully suggest that this account is returned to INSERT NAME OF

ORIGINAL CREDITOR OR DEBT COLLECTION AGENCY for resolution of these

defaults and breaches, as INSERT NAME OF NEW DEBT COLLECTION AGENCY

cannot lawfully pursue any enforcement activities.

If INSERT NAME OF NEW DEBT COLLECTION AGENCY chooses to ignore my

dispute and attempt enforcement, I will initiate legal action and file reports with the

appropriate authorities, including, but not limited to, Trading Standards, Office of Fair

Trading, Information Commissioners Office, Financial Ombudsman Service and

possible court action.

After taking advice, I am of the opinion that any continued pursuit is in violation of

the Consumer Protection From Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 in line with the

Office Of Fair Tradings Collection Guidelines

I hope that this will not be necessary and an acceptable solution can be accomplished.

I would appreciate your due diligence in this matter.

I look forward to hearing from you in writing.

Yours Faithfully

I'm Jealous though, I only get letters from Moorcroft with Pre-School Division on them, yet to have a Home Collections Division letter.

 

In all seriousness, if anyone does turn up, tell them to get off of your property or you will call the police, they have no right to ask you for money.
