    • HB - friend historically has left issues to the last moment, always incurring extra costs.  It has been so frustrating.  Always worried about bills; yet always ending up paying more...   Dx- Is it worth friend writing to the court to say that a legal rep could go to the court on the hearing date - to request Claim be stayed/ struck out?  Even though bank has said they will write to the courts to say arrears paid in full?  Or does bank action mean the claim court hearing will automatically be withdrawn?   Or does friend have to go the N244 route?
    • Hi Everybody,   Long time lurker and appreciative of advice on here, but have something of a pickle of my own which hopefully you can help with...   I left a flat in November 2017 and paid what I thought to be a final bill payment (with notorious SP), and also discussed my end of tenancy date with the CS rep. 6 months later go by and I get a call from somebody saying I'm overdue a bill payment for the utilities in the flat, and that they are wanting money from me. I politely told them they are mistaken and I was all finished up with them, and that they couldn't move with me to my new address. Cue another two months of nothing, and they re-appear on my phone, asking for money. I politely told them that it was nothing to do with me, and to speak to the new tenants / property company who managed the previous flat (and gave their address). 6 months later, I decide to check my credit history in-depth and see that there is a default listed on my account for around £100, so I called them up to complain that there was an unwarranted and invalid default on my account, and they highlighted that they never took the final payment and was outstanding an amount which I was not aware of. When discussing with them on my departure dates, they actually had it listed incorrectly, and I then gave them the correct dates, and said they would review and revise the bill statement but needed payment of ~£100 then and there, but would be rectified and re-imbursed when reviewed. They also said they would take care of the default on file if it was incorrect. 2 months later I get a cheque in the post for overpaying them and nothing further is required. I call them up to confirm relating to the default and they advised it would be done in due process. I am now 2 months later (apologies if these months don't add up) and I have checked my credit file with a 'Satisfied' label on the default. I called them up to get it removed, and they are saying they no longer want to remove the default, and that the default was valid.   What is the best course of action for me at this point.. Is there any hope for me here to get this removed?   Thanks in advance! Dave

    • My thought is: you need a solicitor yourself, and quickly.   The legal situation sounds extremely complicated.    There's only question that I feel confident in advising you on. You ask "The letter was also not recorded in case it makes a difference." No it doesn't. It might have done if you hadn't received the letter, but you have.
    • Hi DX   I have amended the WS and I hope i have taken out the meaningless gibberish.    Thanks, Roland    IN THE County Court AT                                                                              CLAIM NO:      BETWEEN: CABOT FINANCIAL (UK) LIMITED   -and- (DEFENDANT)     ___________________________________________ WITNESS STATEMENT OF      INTRODUCTION    1. I, XXXX, the Defendant in this case, make this statement in support of my defence against the Claimant, Cabot Financial (UK) Limited.  The matters set out below are within my own knowledge, except where I indicate to the contrary.    THE DEFENDANT’S RESPONSE TO THE CLAIMANT’S WITNESS STATEMENT    2. The Claimant states in Paragraph 3, ‘….refer to various documents, true copiesof which are contained in the paginated bundle to this statement marked “JK”1’, but then states in para 4, ‘Acopy of the reconstituted agreementwith associated terms and conditions….pages 1-10’. There is an Agreement and 2 sets of Terms & Conditions and according to para 4 they are not the original but ‘a reconstitutedversion’. The agreement in the JK1 exhibit on page 2 shows an agreement with my name, address and a date but no Account Number or Reference Number as the same was not mentioned in the Claimant’s Particulars Of Claim, which was addressed in my Defence Para 1, ‘the particulars of claim are vague and generic…’.    3. The Claimant’s Witness Statement does not state how the agreement was made, via telephone, post or electronically.   4. There are 2 sets of Terms & Conditions Pages 4-10 which does not show my name and address as per the Consumer Credit Act 1974 Request.    5. Pages 1-10 can easily be downloaded from various internet forums and image sites and have my details inserted with any picture manipulation software.   6. The Claimant states in Para 9 that my defence is a ‘templated defence’, requesting documents pursuant of CPR 31.14 and Section 78 of the Credit Card Act 1974, this is a defendant’s right for request of information but the Claimant has failed to provide the true original Credit Card Agreement and Terms & Conditions.   7. The Claimant states in Para 25 that, ‘the Claimant allowed the proceedings to be stayed in order to allow the parties to attempt settlement negotiations…..’ this is not correct as the Claim was stayed due to the Claimant not being able to provide the requested documents pursuant of my CPR 31.14 and Section 78 of the Credit Card Act 1974. 8. Para 30 and 31of the Witness Statement requests to restore the proceedings, to strike out the Defence, has requested for a Summary Judgement, together with costs to be assessed summarily by the court. I, the Defendant, strongly object to the Claimant’s Witness Statement requesting to lift the stay and enter Judgement. I believe therefore, that this should be denied and I respectfully ask for you to strike out the claim. My reasons for this have been outlined in points 1 to 7.  9. By the reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief and invite the Court to strike out the claim.     I believe that the facts stated in this Witness Statement are true.    Signed:  Dated:

I would expect it's just a ruse by a recruitment agency to get more people on it's books ...

This is what I (would) do:

 

1) If I have found a job on the UJM website and I have to apply to make my advisor happy, I just click on the "Apply" button and forget. I don't have to reapply again for the same job, it's up to the agency/employer to fill my data into their database. That's what they are paid for.

 

2) If I have found a job on the UJM website and I am really interested in that job, I google the agency/employer and apply directly on their website. There are more chances that my data go directly into their books from their website than just sending an email, which might end up in their spam filter.

Based on this companies experian report, I'd give them a wide berth.

 

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

I'm afraid I can't read your jpeg image, it's too small. Would it be possible for you to post a pdf file please?

 

My best, HB

Also when applying for a job on the universal job match website, how come it won't let you download a different CV as I've just appied for two jobs and when i clicked on the cv I wanted the correct one wasn't sent. I know you are only allowed to have 5 CVs stored but what happens if you want to delete one of them as the CV would've be sent to the employer/agency after you have applied for the job.

Hi Louise. Can I ask, why would you need more than 1 CV?

 

Cheers.

For technical questions, I'd grill the JCP adviser that mandated me to use the system - Make 'em squirm :madgrin:

 

In the meantime, I'd apply directly with the CV I want to send.

One would usually tailor the opening statement to suit the vacancy and perhaps emphasise certain hobbies/interests or skill set. Some sectors expect CVs to be in a certain style, whilst others will want to see a different format. Then there are the jobs that you have been mandated to apply for, and you know you have a cat in hells chance (wrong location, bad pay/conditions, or not qualified), in which case, default to the baseline version.

There's a school of thought that says you should tailor your CV for particular vacancies, or at least for particular types of job.

I've got a CV for admin roles and one for Purchase Ledger roles.

 

Yeah, that's the sort of thing I mean. If I apply for an IT job I would want to focus on a different set of skills than those I'd highlight if I was applying for an admin or Civil Service role.

Just don't use UJM, just upload a basic CV with obfuscated details. Use Indeed.co.uk instead, but don't log in. Just follow the links to the vacancy and apply on company website. A colleague has created a fake employer profile on UJM. It's scary!
