    • Greenpanda - as suggested by dx100 at post #5 can you post up a scan of the letter from the solicitors?  (Carefully read the upload guide they refer to and remove all identifying information).   I would be reluctant to pay anything until I know how this has happened and why, so I'd agree you need to send a SAR to both your insurer and the accident management company.  I agree with the idea of sending a non-committal acknowledgement letter to the solicitors saying you need time to investigate the matter as you've given no thought to it for three years.  You could also try asking them to explain to you how this debt has arisen.   You have my sympathy.  My wife and I had our insurers(!) involve an accident management company "on our behalf" a few years ago and they were completely ******* useless
    • Is that when records might show you had become a couple living at same address ?   If so, perhaps they will look at the monthly average earnings for the period that they asked and use the average to recalculate awards up to the current period.

    • We won’t be entitled to anything because he earns too much.   why have they only asked for the 3 months last year? 🙃
    • a two week lockdown without a vaccine or REAL increased test capacity at the end of those two weeks is largely pointless. We are at the start of the upsurge - and especially if schools aren't better protected.   - look at the figures showing the increase in young person infections and those figures are massively artificially low due to the policy of telling people they cant have a test if they dont have symptoms, and no tests available anyway.   What we need is competent leadership who have other than their own interests at heart - and we simply dont have it.   On the infection stats Given the guesstimate that only 30% show symptoms, and the policies, that infection rate needs to be multiplied by 3 at least - even if everyone that thought they needed one got a test - and they aren't.

    • 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 .

Hello all.

 

I was stopped this morning at Moorgate by the ticket inspectors and my details were taken as apparently I had not touched in at my originating station (I had). Essentially they had to report it and I had to sign a form.

 

My question is, should I have been given a copy of that form? I requested a copy but he refused as it is not policy to do so...my argument of "but you could write anything on that after I had left" seemed to fall on deaf ears. I even asked if I could take a photo, but that was denied.

 

I do not think that I will be given a penalty fare (famous last words!) judging by the circumstances, but I wondered if anyone had any thoughts on this and whether they have ever asked/been provided with a copy of the report?

 

Cheers.

You do not receive a copy of that form. In the same way the police do not give you a copy of a witness statement (MG11).

 

It is their intention to prosecute you, which, they will do so successfully if they go for a Byelaw offence, unless you negotiate an out of court settlement.

 

Just wait for a letter asking for your explanation. In the event that you get a summons, in the pack you will receive will be a few statements from the Inspector and FCC.

 

Incidentally, it is your job to ensure you touch in/out correctly, you must check you get the green light, even if the barriers are in the open position. The Oyster system is generally very reliable in this respect, it is usually user error or misuse which causes problems.

 

Was this PAYG or did you have a travelcard on it?

Pikeyal, you can check yourself if you've touched in- go to a tube station and ask for a print-out of your ticket.

 

That way, you will know that either:

 

a) you didn't touch in, and be safe in the knowledge that you are being properly told off, or

 

b) that you did touch in, and therefore have proof to use 'against' TfL when they write to you requesting your version of events.

Thanks for the replies. I got the print out and hadn't touched in - fair cop guv. The fine arrived in the post a couple of weeks ago and I duly paid it. I don't have the time nor the inclination to fight when the rules are clearly stated and I had breached them.

 

The problem is, I have since received an anonymous letter regarding data protection and that FCC have sold my details etc. They also referenced this forum. Very bizarre indeed! Any ideas anyone as to what this is all about???????

Hello again.

 

That sounds very odd. Are you able to scan up a copy of the letter without identifying information please, so we can have a look?

 

My best, HB

set your default scan page size to A4 less than 300DPI [150 will do]

scan the required letters/agreements/sheets - as a picture[jpg] file

don't forget you can use a mobile phone or a digital camera too!!

'

BUT......

ENSURE: remove all pers info inc. barcodes etc using paint program

but leave all monetary figures and dates.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

All it means is that there is / are FCC RPIs who post in this forum (for all the right reasons) and one of them has identified your specific case (perhaps was even the officer who dealt with it originally), and has sent you a letter informing you that FCC have breached DPA and not told you. So you can now sue them in retaliation, etc.
