    • You honestly have a very serious situation here. Is there any chance that this problem might be being caused by somebody that you know? In future you should open all letters and copy them and then return them to the sender but make sure you have a copy. This is very important. I understand that the three of you are being targeted. I am saying "targeted" because it is too much of a coincidence that you are all the subject of the same kind of identity theft/identity fraud committed by different people. This suggests very strongly to me that there is one person who is doing this and the fact that this person is doing this to all three of you also suggests very strongly that it is somebody who is known to you. I would find it difficult to imagine that there could be any other explanation. Have you got a list of the companies that have become involved because of this problem? Please could you post up a list here
    • Yes I am so sorry.  I am using my phone to type and it comes out in a block.  I will see if I can borrow use of a friends computer next time 
    • I'm sorry that you have been upset about it. I think you are very justified feel that way. Before I start answering, can I please point out that this is the second time that you've posted a solid block of text. It's very difficult for people to read and to give you the enthusiastic support that you deserve. In your first post, – which was very long – one of the site team restructured it so that it was legible. We don't really have time to do this kind of thing and so please would you make sure that in future your posts are properly spaced and punctuated and that will encourage people to view your story and to give you the advice that you need.   Also, now that I have restructured your post I see that you have recognised that your posts are not properly spaced because you don't have a computer. You can still use the paragraph return with a phone and it will make it much easier.
    • Sorry I’ve just been a bit upset about it.       It started with my daughter (aged 27) four years ago.  We rang the train company and tried to sort it over the phone.  I know now that was wrong.  My daughter has had at least 6 separate letters relating to different incidents of fare evasion.   One of the incidents was going to court.   My other daughter has had about 8 or more separate incidents. She has a file which I can get this week.   My ex partner has now started to get some (Erica instead of Eric ).   There ha e been some addressed using our surname but with a forename not known.     The one relating to me had gone to court and I have had to ask them to open the case again.   I was advised not to do a statutory declaration as although I didn’t open the letter addressed with a misspelt surname I did suspect what it was and so couldn’t say I didn’t know about it.   At least one other has gone to a court.   So many we have out back in the post as unknown at This address.     There are too many to fight each one altogether for my family they must be over 20, I’m sorry this isn’t very well space I only have the use of the phone   I don’t have a computer

Hi all, would appreciate a bit of help on this matter...


Basically I'm a bar tender in Newcastle and was in work for food on my day off and the owner asked if he could speak to me.


He said that I had not clocked out 3 times in 2weeks and that he was going to involve the police as it was serious gross misconduct. I normally work 8.30am-4.30pm and usually stay for a drink after work, I can recall one of the 3 occasions and I made the receptionist aware of this. When he mentioned it to me I remembered a second time but explained that it was a complete accident, which it was.


He also said that he has a witness that said I have been staying clocked in after I finish on purpose to get more hours, I do not recall saying this.


He gave me 2 options either resign with immediate effect or contest the allegations but said I would lose as I am on camera in the bar drinking, he said if I lost I would be taken to court and receive a criminal record.


In this meeting he had a HR rep, no notes where taken, I had no representative and felt so overwhelmed at the time I resigned.


I am on a zero hour a week contract so they do not have to give me any hours before I go although what action can I take? I feel I have got the short straw.


In total the amount that I gained from staying clocked in was £36, I offered to pay it back and more but was told that was not the issue.


Any help at all would be appreciated, thanks. Peter.

You need to have been working there for 12 months to have acquired any employment rights.

Does this apply?
