    • I am aware of this treatment. Field Debt Solutions approached me at my door claiming to have a warrant of entry, (one of many lies they used) they KNEW I was classed as vulnerable prior to the visit. This was (later found out by The Ombudsman) allegedly to install a pre payment meter (They know I can not use one). Long story short: I was threatened with criminal damage, the police and them not moving till I let them in. They stated they had a warrant, they did not. One FDS employee was waving a crowbar and smiling, the other was basically terrorising me through the window. I complained to EON and all that they did was lie further, covered up their behaviours After contacting the OMBUDSMAN all the truth came out. I am totally disgusted with the way this company operate. I am equally disgusted that the Ombudsman ere not taking any of the FDS Employees behaviours into account (yet all my claims were upheld) this feels like this section of the whole process is left wide open and that's why this is happening imho. The Ombudsman made me feel like they work for EON, (when it came to the consideration of the employees from FDS, they seemed immune to scrutiny) a very confusing and shocking experience when the penny drooped. I have looked at CISA (?) whom are some sort of organisation who debt collection agencies register with (no idea what for) anyway, FDS are not registered, I can not find them anywhere, they are like some sort of enigma and this is where i am thinking how they are protecting themselves from scrutiny and people gaining remedy from them. I also witnessed a EON employee telling me that "FDS do not have to answer anyone," they would not give me any way of complaining directly to them as is the Gov's advice before A Small Claims Tract. I am just making sure now that I record all my efforts to do what I can to give a chance for FDS to attempt to put right what they did to me. I have witnesses and I intend to take them to court. EON has damned them and all the info they provided shows how messed up and disgusting they are, I seriously have witnessed staff laughing at me on the phone when I am trying to tell them what happened. I t seems if you do not pay a bill (in my case this was out of my hands) Then your deserving of what seems to me an inside laugh as the know how we (the vulnerable) get treated when FDS turn up, yes, very much felt this and challenged one employee once.. I have spoken to a Solicitor and they are happy  to do something for me over this. Also the police were phoned by myself even though they threatened me with police "To Help Them Take My DOOR OF ITS HINGES" The police did turn up, they told me that they rarely ever turn up for these idiots as the FDS and others attempt to use the police through bull crapping them. They also said go through a few hoops and if your not happy come back to them, I have a mobile number as they said that a crime number would come after I have exhausted the other moves. They do not like these Debt People one bit, that was comforting. Sorry if this is a little all over but it was all over complexed (I can see why now) but  just wanted to share my experiences and I will be happy to share further if anyone needs to know. I am still wondering what to do but one thing is for sure, I will not be going away, EVER! good luck
    • what does it say if the claimant fails please?
    • Thanks for the feedback.  We have a professional surveyor friend who is willing to give an opinion, and once done as you say, there's no reason not to inform insurers. And as Eric's brother says, that will also give us, hopefully, a more specific discussion with neighbours. No, we can't view the neighbour's roofing from where we are, and neither can they as it's under their conservatory (we always thought it was a bad move on their part to cover felting with a conservatory!) Interesting that council have enforcement powers, hadn't realised that.  I've also had a builder advise, without visiting the site, that the dividing wall (which may be double-skinned) should have waterproof capping, which it doesn't; so maybe a simple solution is to install that across top of both sides.  Anyway, some next steps for us to take so thanks again.
    • un-en doesn't mean its written off but SB'd passing does.. and no why should you get the money??   they are notional charges that weren't paid by you anyway in the 1st place as there is was outstanding balance greater than the refund.
    • If WFH is what leaves people feeling unsupported then I completely agree that's not good.  I wonder if some organisations were better at keeping communication open, managing the situation and making their employees still feel supported and included.  It's likely there have been lessons learned.

    • 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

Case Study I:

To be able to park on the Port Isaac beach you must purchace a permit of £120 for a year. At different times the beach or lets call it then the parking area has lumps of seaweed deposited by the high tide.

Yes, this parking area, for which you have to purchase a £120 permit is covered by sea water, basically half of the year.

Public has free access to this parking area to visit the beach, although one seem to be the other as long as the tides not in.

I strolled down wanting a restfull walk on the beach. I chose to begin my walk entering the parking area/beach from the left hand side where there was cars parked. As I walked in between the cars to get to the rest of the beach I tripped over a huge bundle of wet and slippery seaweed and injured my back.

Who can I sue?

 

Case Study II:

I have permit to park on the Port Isaac Beach which I also refer to as the parking area. During high tide my favorate 'parking bay' is however covered with sea water. I decided to jumped into the sea excactly where I chose to park my car and misjuded myself with the depth of the water. The result was that I fell on my bum in my favorate 'parking bay' and subsequently hurt my back.

Who can I sue?

 

Most of you would probaly have picked up my problem here. PARKING PIRMITS are sold to motorists at £120 for a year to park on the Port Isaac beach. This 'parking area' consists of what is also known as the FORESHORE and it is impossible to use your pirmit during hightide.

Illigal parking or non-permit displayed parking offences are controlled and managed by a private parking company. If you appeal their £90 PCN you are told that you have TRESSPASSED ON PRIVATE PROPERTY.

i've asked for the information of the private entity owning the 'parking area' from the private parking company who should have written consent to act on their behalve - no reply.

I understand that the Dutchy of Cornwall have the mining rights to most beaches in Cornwall and even if it has the rights on this beach no parking areas can be managed to facilitate the public to park there. An active mining area should be fenced in and managed via a gate.

There is NO access restriction of any kind to the public wishing to spend the day on the beach or swim in the sea. Vistors and locals move over and use these areas on a daily basis.

 

The cherry on the cake is that the private company ebforcing the law here are using PCN that do not comply to the Barnet v Moses case!!!!!

 

Anyone out there who would like to think with me on this one or advise me or put me unto a GOOD solicitor?

Case Study I, sue Neptune for illegal fly tipping

Case Study II, sue Gravity .

 

So you slip on sea weed and jump in water too shallow, probably hurting your pride more than anything else. Be more careful.

 

A quick look at the site shows this is actually a council car park, merely being run by a contracted company. So any PCN recieved can be appealed through legitimate channels and the non complience is a valid appeal point.

I seem to recall there all kinds of old rules (laws) about foreshore and the tidal area.

needs a lot of looking into I think.

 

Show us the PCN.

You can try. Send them increasingly threatening letters and see if they crack and pay you:-)

Something's odd here. The council would not respond to an appeal saying the issue was trespass so I don't get it.

As far as injuries are concerned, to make a successful claim, unless settled for commercial reasons you would need to show negligence which, other than your own I cannot see in the circumstances you suggest.

My LA contracts a private company to run their car parks and off-street parking enforcement. I didn't think it was unusual.
