    • Very good, UB.   I'm not clear on the status of Kent now. People are talking about it being part of France, etc, but how is tht when the 'border' only applies to lorries?
    • Campaign starts ? Independence for Kent, so it becomes a separate customs area and can charge a tariff on goods transported through its territory.  With the money raised, citizens of Kent might then have little or no income taxes to pay.   I could see this campaign being started and it could grow in popularity.   Would be funny if Brexit led to break up of UK and break away by some English counties. 
    • SERCO seem to be a default company that Government use to perform contact centre type tasks. So any department faced with a problem, say a sudden increase in incoming phone calls, which they cannot handle, because they are dealing with more immediate issues such as making payments to the public, may in the short term involve SERCO.   SERCO seem to employ a lot of security cleared, DBS checked, financial checked etc employees, so they seem to be equipped and ready to manage tasks on behalf of Government departments.   No idea just how much work SERCO does on behalf of Government, but I should imagine it makes up a sizeable chunk of their business.   Public Health departments may want to perform the work themselves, but given the number of employees required, the recruitment process involved, the hours of work 24/7 and just how quick they need to be set up to perform the work, I question whether they are better placed to do so.   I would always prefer public sector employees over outsourced contracts, but I can understand why Government uses companies such as SERCO. 
    • Well, we’ve found something we agree on.   you’ve described the unfairness, but haven’t said what (realistically!) you feel your options are.
    • There's a campaign against Serco and in favour of local public health people. Apologies for one bit of language but it's a memorable slogan.   https://twitter.com/i/status/1309910583790252037

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

hi,

my partner put a ppi claim into barclays credit card 10 weeks he is only due about £300 but if he gets it then it will write off what he owes on his credit card, however he got a letter from them a month ago saying they would make a decission by the 28th of this month (2weeks later than it should be) now im reading that all ppi claims are on hold, surely to god my partners should still be sorted out as he was due a answer 2 weeks ago? can someone please advise, he has had no letter saying its on hold or no final letter

Hi Princess,

 

This is the latest news on PPI claims, it might very well be that your husbands claim has been put on hold, but they should write to you letting you know whats going on. Don't forget you can take your complaint to the FOS.

Rachel,

 

Some but not all of the banks claim to be putting PPI claims on hold in light of the news the BBA will be taking Financial Service Authority to court to try and challange the news rules proposed by FSA.

 

Even if Barclays are 1 of the banks putting claims on hold, they are going against the strict instructions of the FSA, who have said they expect banks to continue handling complaints about mis-selling as per usual.

 

Barclays would have had to write to your partner and inform him of their intention to put his claim on hold, if indeed that is what they intend to do.

 

Barclays are well known to be snowed under with mis-sold PPI claims and it could well be they just haven't got around to deal with your bf's case yet.

 

Personally, I would give it another week and if you do not hear anything from Barclays, write them and ask for an update.

 

Good luck

 

DJ

Nice1 princess, has your bf had someone look at the calculations for him before he accepts?

 

I know from previous experience Barclays are less than honest.
