    • if your loan is an unsecured loan, but you own a home were they to make you bankrupt, could you lose the home....... .............   i will assume you are talking about your wife's debts? as you've said YOU don't own a home ?  
    • Shops at the retail park beside me were mobbed today, last week the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh was as busy as it ever has been.
    • I have a loan with Commsave dx, the deductions come straight from my wages. When you join you tell them how much you want to save either weekly or monthly and you authorise them take deductions from your wages towards your savings account with them, same thing apply's when you have a loan with them.
    • I went from Virgin Media to Sky Q earlier this year as I wasn't a great fan of Tivo and was keen to try Sky Q.   When it was installed, I was offered the chance to replace my aging (ten year old) dish which I accepted.   In the last few days, I've come to the conclusion that Sky Q isn't for me and that I'd ideally like to downgrade it at the end of my contract to go back to using my old Sky+ HD box, which I still have.   Much to my surprise, I subsequently found out that the LNB on my dish would not be compatible as Q uses a special "wide band" LNB and the older boxes do not.   I contacted Sky to confirm this, which they did.   They also told me that there would be nothing they could do and that if I wanted to continue using my dish with my older box then I would have to pay to get it re-fitted myself which, after some investigation, would cost me at least £150 pounds.   The issue of future compatibility wasn't mentioned anywhere in the literature or the official Sky Q contract, but the Sky employee I was talking to agreed that it could present a problem and said that he would pass it "up the ladder" to see if the wording could be changed to better explain it to prevent any future problems - all the while telling me there was nothing they could do for me specifically.   I understand that I'm getting the service I paid for, which I have no issue with.   I understand that I'm only loaning the equipment and that it has to be returned at the end of the contract.   That I also have no problem with.   The contract also states that the dish becomes mine at the point of installation as well, which is also fine.   Basically, Sky have provided the service stated in the contract.   My problem with this is that Sky must clearly know that many people use, and still use, older boxes.   They still sell viewing cards for these older boxes, so that in itself should be enough to prove that they are aware of the compatibility issues between the two pieces of hardware.   Should there not have been even a small advisory akin to "Customers please note: Sky Q dishes are not compatible with older hardware" ?   By choosing to omit this information,  it not only prevented me from making an informed decision at installation, as I could have apparently asked for what's called a "Hybrid LNB" which would be compatible with older hardware, but it will also leave me significantly out of pocket at the end of the contract.   Is there anything in this ?.  Can I challenge this in any capacity ?.   Ideally, I'd like them to let me out of the Sky Q contract so I can downgrade to the Sky+ HD box I own, but I accept this will likely not be possible.   I'd be interested in your thoughts.   Thankyou.

    • 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

I received a requisition to appear at court on Wednesday. I noticed at the time that my DOB is listed completely wrong, and made a mental note to find out who to contact.

 

This morning, I received another letter in the post, but hadn't noticed it had the wrong name on the front. (Was half asleep, and trying to deal with a four year old at the time) This time, it's been issued to my address to someone I've never heard of, for 8 days after my court date, in the next county. This time, it has my DOB on it. The address and DOB are mine, but the name and charges aren't.

 

What do I do about this? Where do I return the letter to, and do I phone the court or the CPS regarding the errors?

Seems right NOT to ignore this, Ultimately I suggest the place to contact by phone or in person is the Office of the Clerk to the Justices of the Magistrates Court you have been told to attend ( I am presuming lucky star12 is in England or Wales). It might be best to get specialist advice before you contact the court so you know exactly what you face, as I am not clear from what has been said.

 

The best person is a criminal solicitor, who may well give free initial advice if you say that you have been told to attend court and are not sure if you need to be represented. It may seem worrying to speak to a solicitor, but by speaking to a solicitor on your behalf you should find out "exactly" what is the worse that can happen and what is legally your best course of action.

 

Different firms of solicitors are easier or more difficult to approach (it can be a sign whether they want your business) In my experience people who start a possible court process by getting accurate and precise legal advise get through the situation with the greatest of ease in the long run.

 

If a solicitor cannot be found, good advice can come from Citizens advice bureau or a Law Centre, if there is one near you (if there is and there probably is not - that would be the best place to start because they will refer you direct to a solicitor is that is definitely needed). Don't panic you are one of many thousands

 

If you do a search for "law centres" you will find a lot of information also you can do a search for "magistrates courts" and "citizens advice bureaux" where a lot of reliable information is available.

Have you ever claimed Income Support and are there any reasons to why you would be getting such letters..

You say the Date of birth is wrong on one,

Is the name correct then?

Yes, Mikey. Had the interview under caution in October, after I'd failed to declare student finance. Stupid, I know.

 

Everything else on the one with the date of birth is correct; overpayment of £2509, period of time, etc. It's just the date of birth that's wrong - I don't want it causing more problems for either myself or prosecution.

 

Thank you, Tolkny. Will be seeing citizens advice first, and going from there. Yes, I'm in England. Do I report the requisition with the wrong name etc to them? Or do I report it to the court the person addressed should be attending?

I'm not sure what is meant by 'requisition' I would have expected a "Summons" to have been sent to the person who is alleged to have offended, which is an instruction to attend court, so I would direct any queries (after I have taken advice) to that court because it is the court who makes final decisions apart possibly from the Prosecutor, who would have issued the summons who has power to ask court for it to be withdrawn if it has been issued in error.

 

I suspect I am confusing things by thinking of several different possibilities which is the reason I suggest showing exactly what as been sent to someone who is used to seeing the forms, they can be muddled and not easy to understand (although they shouldn't be)!

I think it's the same thing, just worded differently. All throughout both letters it states "requisition", not "summons".

Tolkny - for some reason they aren't called a summons anymore. Even though thats a word probably everyone understands they are now called a 'requisition'

 

Luckystar - I'm not sure if the phone number of the CPS who has issued it will be on the paperwork or not. If it is I would give them a ring. You could always ask the investigator who dealt with you whether or not they could help.

 

If you have someone else's requisition you would be doing them a great favour as ultimately if they fail to attend Court then a warrant might be issued for their arrest.

I can't find the number on the paperwork. Have the address, though. In no doubt about phoning the relevant people, just a little unsure as to who the right person is.

I am out of touch, maybe the thought is that requisition is a more easily understood word, I think the point is that it is more than an invitation to attend but not an order to attend. If a person does not attend and the court is satisfied they should attend then an order from the court will be issued but if one responds to the requisition it demonstrates a willingness to co-operate and means you are there in person to tell the court if you have a difficulty about attending at a particular time on a particular date.

 

If you phone the court and say what you have received they should be able to put you on to the right person, if it is convenient you might go in to the court office in person. I would favour contacting the court rather than, or as well as, the Prosecutor.

Re attendance, it says at the bottom of each "If you do not attend, the court may hear the case in your absence and may issue a warrant for your arrest. If a warrant is issued for your arrest, you may be hel in custody until you are brought before the court"

Yes very strong invitation, best to show up!!

 

If you plead not guilty it is very unlikely the trial will take place on the first day, which is why it is also unlikely that if a person doesn't turn up at the first date that the trial would actually go ahead on that day.
