    • it's a private school, i'm support staff...not a teacher. i don't know if that's a good or bad thing.  because it was the final step on their bradford chart my dept. manager wasn't in on the meeting.  if it was him, i'm sure i'd be fine, he's a good guy, a bit of a knob sometimes   but on the whole he's has an understanding of life.  but this was out of his hands, he didn't like the situation himself and i'm pretty sure if they talk to him that he would confirm all that i said about my work within the dept.  but i'm guessing from their point of view that the above doesn't mean much if i haven't managed to do my contractual hours 😕 so it is a possibility that they can dismiss me without a written warning? thanks for your replies    
    • Hi DX   I didnt write as nationwide record calls and also said its not neccessary as they blocked (supposedly) on the phone.   How do I now cancel cpa then? Do I still need to write to Nationwide? Or is it ok now that nationwide have confirmed the block for paypal and the block from visa team to refuse requests from paypal?

    • its a lacking on our part  and yours as you didn't WRITE. instructing not to honour ANY payments to PP but that's NW for you.   you need to cancel the CPA.   GENERAL NOTES ON CHARGEBACK & Continuous Payment Authority & BACS   .....  We have been telling people to put a letter into their bank instructing them  not to make any payments under any circumstances to these companies  . http://whatconsumer.co.uk/visa-debit-chargeback/- it works! usually this should be done using the number on your debit card  .  banks MUST follow written intructions from their customers ! . CANCELLING YOUR DEBIT CARD DOES NOT STOP CPA'S  .  This fsa guide has now been updated:  . http://www.fsa.gov.uk/static/pubs/consumer_info/know_your_rights_guide.pdf http://www.fca.org.uk/news/continuous-payment-authorities-your-right-to-cancel https://www.fca.org.uk/consumers/unauthorised-payments-account  .  Here's the text:  .  Cancelling a regular  card payment:  .  When you give your credit or debit card details to a company and authorise them to take regular payments from your account,   such as for a gym membership or magazine subscription,  it is known as a ‘recurring transaction’ or ‘continuous payment authority’.  . These are often confused with direct debits, but do not offer the same guarantee if the amount or date of the payment changes.  .  In most cases, regular payments can be cancelled by telling the company taking the payments.   .  However,   you have the right to cancel them directly with your bank or card issuer by telling it that you have stopped permission for the payments.   Your bank or card issuer must then stop them – it has no right to insist that you agree this first with the company taking the payments.  .  Be aware, though, that you will still be responsible for paying any money that you owe. and that CANCELLING YOUR CARD WILL NOT STOP THE CPA  .  ..  .  New june 2013  .  Regulator orders Banks and mutuals to review complaints about not cancelling recurring payments from November 2009.  .  Consumers who have set up a regular payment from their account will now be able to successfully cancel that arrangement   by contacting their card provider, the Financial Conduct Authority said.  .  The FCA has been examining how easy it is for customers to cancel Continuous Payment Authorities (CPAs)   due either to payday lendersicon or for other regular payments such as subscriptions or gymicon memberships.  .  CPAs, which are also commonly called recurring transactions or recurring payments,   are relatively easy to set up but can be hard to cancel, causing problems for consumers trying to manage their finances,the FCA said.  .  Now, following the FCA review of how the largest high street banks and mutuals process requests to cancel CPAs, they have agreed that they will ensure that when   a customer asks for a recurring payment to end, that will be sufficient to cancel the arrangement. They have also confirmed that should a payment go through by   mistake following cancellation by a customer the customer will be refunded immediately.  .  In addition to securing this commitment, the largest banks and mutuals have agreed to review every individual complaint they have received about the non-  cancellation of a CPA and to pay redress where payments have continued to be made despite the customer cancelling the arrangement. This applies to all complaints   since November 2009 when the Financial Services Authority, the FCA’s predecessor, began regulating banking conduct.  .  Clive Adamson, the FCA’s director of supervision, said: “It’s important that consumers are confident that banks are meeting their everyday banking needs. Today   customers can be confident that when they ask for a Continuous Payment Authority to be cancelled – it will be cancelled - and that it can be done easily.   . “We recognise that historically this is an area where some customers have struggled but the banks and mutuals have responded positively to our work on this issue.   From now on we expect them to be getting this right. In addition, they have committed to review past complaints.” .  .  Also mentioned your displeasure that as whomever took your money had obviously attempted this many times   probably activating your banks own anti fraud software - nobody had the decency to inform my you this was going on.? .  .In the FSA's own words:  .  ..  What should I do about a payment from my account that I didn’t authorise?  .  Your bank must refund an unauthorised transaction.   Money can only be taken from your account if you have authorised the transaction   or if your bank can prove you were at fault –  . see below.  Contact your bank immediately if you notice an unauthorised payment from your account. .  If you are sure you did not authorise the payment, you can claim a refund.  .  However, your bank does not have to refund you if you do not tell it about the payment until 13 months  or more after the date it left your account.  .  Your bank must refund an unauthorised transaction  .  ------------------  .  Your bank may only refuse a refund for an unauthorised transaction if:  .  ? it can prove you authorised the transaction  – though your bank cannot simply say that use of your password,   card and PIN proves you authorised a payment; or .  ? it can prove you are at fault because you acted fraudulently,   or because you deliberately,   or with gross negligence, failed to protect the details of your card, PIN or password in a way that allowed the transaction  .  -----------------------  .  How quickly must my bank refund me for an unauthorised transaction?  .  The bank must make the refund immediately unless it has evidence that one of the above reasons applies.   Your bank may ask you to answer some questions and fill out a form confirming what has happened,   but it cannot delay your refund while it waits for you to return the form.  If the bank has evidence that one of the above reasons for refusing a refund applies,   it may investigate before making a refund   but must look into it as quickly as possible.   If your bank rejects your claim for a refund it should explain why.  If the transaction was on a credit card, the refund may not happen immediately.   But the card issuer cannot charge interest or ask for repayment of the amount unless it can prove you are liable to pay

Hi allison

 

If you were Pub Managers were you self-employed?

 

I would change the following:- 'The Financial Services Authority’s advice to consumers is that, while it does not breach FSA guidelines', The Financial Services Authority is now the The Financial Conduct Authority - The FCA.

 

Other then that it's fine.

Hi no we were not self employed, we were managers on an annual salary and not tenants. We were paid to manage and had no fixed hours etc and lived at the premises and ran it as our own with full control over the income and expenditure. We were also paid bonus's on top of our salary for anything profits over the set plan for the year. We had a generous salary with no living expenses so didn't need the cover.

Hi allison

 

It might be an idea to get 'Oldrougue' to run through the letter.

I've just been looking at the bank statement again in connection with number two loan in 1999 and can see that I was working for local government but was a temporary contract and hubby was training to become a driving instructor and was also doing a driving job part time on temporary basis. I've worked this out from the credits into the account.

Not sure how to argue this one can anyone advise please?

I really feel that you need to do that full sar to hsbc and see what they have got otherwise its all speculation, give the wrong reason or wrong claimant and they can then easily repudiate, I realise its important and you want to get on with things, but I really think it may pay to be patient. Doing a sar can be for many reasons and wont affect your banking relationship, you have the right to that data

Yes I think I agree with you OR...haven't posted anything yet so will hang on to them both and send sAR....will have to be Monday now. The only thing is that I think they'll only send records back to 2005 as per my other claim but will give it a go.

I certainly think thats the right way to go, will take a little longer but best to get it right at the outset rather than trying to argue with their findings later on

Right going to do the SAR request but looking at my previous ones they were all in relation to a particular card with an account number.

Should I list the things I need ie credit cards, loans,mortgages etc or just ask for ALL the information. Just worried as there will be so much they might not send what I need.

Will have a llok around the forums for a letter

full sar for all the, information.Re Read the 03/2003 t&cs for hsbc ppi this morning and in relation to your second loan in 1999 if the t&cs were similar, then the policy, interestingly, does not cover unemployment for people working on a temporary basis:-)

HSBC rang me today in regards to my SAR request and said they only have records back six years....they will contact the branch in Worthing to see if they have old files but they said its unlikely.

They asked if I wanted everything ie current accounts etc hut after talking it through are sending info in relation to loans,credit cards,mortgages and any insurance policy's both business and personal.

Sounds like they will only be last six years tho so jot going to really help me.

well update on this one..

 

.the FOS have rung this morning and said that they are using the t & c,s sent to them from HSBC from 2000

which are the nearest ones that they have to 1998 which was the point of sale.

 

In these they do not make it any more onerous to claim if self employed.

 

I pointed out that the ones I have from 2003 and 2005 (the 2005 were sent to me by HSBC in my SAR)

both make it more onerous and they agree that they do but they have to use the ones from 2000 as these are the closest.

 

I can't beleive that I am going to loose this one because I can't get hold of the terms from 98.

 

Frustrated to say the least.

still trying to find copies of the ppi terms and conditions provided with a midland credit card in 1998. I am just about to loose a rather large claim via the FOS as they are using the ones sent to them by HSBC for 2000 that doesn't show its any more onerous...even tho the ones from 2005 and 2003 do!!!!!! Desparate please can anyone help?

These are the terms that the FOS have just sent to me from 2000 although this is only written on and not printed etc.

If you look at pages 12/13 to me this does make it more onerous.

If you are self-employed and making an

unemployment claim, YOU MUST ALSO provide

evidence that etc etc,---this phrase seems clear enough that it is of course more onerous,its an extra hurdle to clear to claim

the point is ,in reality, the only evidence hsbc would accept from the s/e in order to claim would be annual accounts or tax returns. For someone s/e witha business with no profits, how on earth would they be able to afford to produce annual accounts? Of course it is a tremendous extra burden on the s/e to claim, and that aspect needs explaining to the fos. The words you must also, can surely only mean its an extra hurdle to cross

The document says that the underwriter would accept other evidence, such as bank statements, to show that the business person was unable to meet their business needs.

 

Remember, it doesn't matter that the policy requires a self employed person to take extra steps. What matters is whether those extra steps are onerous, or exlcude the person altogether. I wouldn't have thought that demonstrating, by bank statement or other means, that you're out of work because you could not meet business needs is onerous.

The point with se is and I'm sure se people on here would agree,

 

 

is that you don't just stop trading right away it's your business and you fight to keep it going hoping things will pick up

and suffer financial hardship during that period.

 

 

Then like my husband you normally have another business idea in place in order to earn a living before closing down.

 

I think that the fact that you would have to stop trading and inform inland revenue AND provide evidence is more onerous.

 

 

Tax returns are for a full year so would most probably show some income so claim would be refused,

annual accounts may show no profits but they would have all sorts of queries re business expenses

I would think and bank statements I'm not sure.

 

 

These would have to be provided in addition to proof that you have informed inland revenue

and know how these insurance companies work I'm sure it would of been near enough impossible to claim.

 

 

This is why we never have claimed as yes hubby has times between businesses

but would not of been able to provide clear cut evidence to support a claim as life just doesn't work out that way.

 

 

So many se people have been paid out on PPI its frustrating that I am banging my head against a brick wall.

 

The other fact still remains too that if all this had been pointed out we would not of taken the PPI

and l don't think we did but as the only agreement they have been able to provide is one from 2005

when the account changed to a premier account then I can't prove this either.

 

 

Although in the 2005 credit card agreement the PPI box us clearly not ticked.

Spot on Allison,having been se for over44years before old age set in,dealing with banks and insurers on a daily basis,bank statements easy to adapt to suit have never been accepted as sole proof or lack of income That's why self cert mortgages were invented Mm has obviously never had to produce annual accs.Anyway been reflecting on this back later

some further thoughts-the fos say that they settle complaints on a basis that is fair and reasonable to all parties.Your card originally was a Midland Visa Card,it would have been covered by a product called Credit Protection Insurance. It seems to me that the fos having been asked for the t&cs they are relying on to investtigate your complaint,are on dubious ground by using t&cs relating to Cardholder Repayment Protector from hsbc just because they happen to be nearer to the date of the original agreement, totally different product. In addition hsbc having been unable to supply either your original ag, the ppi t&cs or say how you applied for the ppi, the fos should accept the modifying agreement that you signed as far more relevent given the fact as you say above that you did not request ppi on that agreement, I think I would be pointing all this out in your reply, as well as what you have described above about s/e claiming. The unemployment benefits just do not work for the s/e

I understand this. But remember that this is unemployment cover. Not "things are hard, I'll use the insurance to top up my earnings" cover.

 

If, for instance, an employed person suffered a massive cut in earnings - they too would not be able to use the insurance. In a similar fashion, if a self-employed person is just going through a bad patch, the insurance would not kick in.

 

The policy covers unemployment - being out of work and registered as so. The underwriter, quite reasonably, requires evidence that the insured person is out of work and has stopped working for the correct reasons (i.e. involuntary unemployment).
