    • Very strange world we have at the moment.  UK is trying to move to a position where Covid is treated similar to common Cold.    Other countries are still wanting to take protective measures and it is not just about vaccination rates. The WHO and other health authorities are still recommending caution, as there may be variants which are more problematic, leading to higher pressure on health services, death rates, disruption to essential services etc.   I am hearing of people being really unwell due to new Covid infection, even though they have had 3 vaccinations and also had Covid previously.   Far too early in my opinion to treat Covid like a common Cold. 
    • Djokovic is back in the news - the BBC has cast doubts on the date of his covid test prior to arriving in Australia. They've done some clever research with serial numbers and QR codes but the Serbian public health authority isn't giving information.   And Nadal is a step closer to his 21st Grand Slam title, which would make him the first male player to reach that. He won't be able to compete in the French Open under France's current rules which require all sportspeople to be vaxxed.   Novak Djokovic: Doubts over timing of Covid test WWW.BBC.COM The BBC has uncovered fresh evidence questioning the timing of Novak Djokovic’s positive Covid test used to enter Australia.  
    • Hi   I could be wrong here so could @namedisplay please clarify if I am correct or completely wrong?   In your post#1 you mention that due to your health issues and your mental state at the time you rang the Training Room and was told it would cost and initial £200 and then £15 per month until you finished the course.   Then further in post#1 The Training Room told you you were not eligible for an extension because you hadn't completed enough of the course.   With the above I now refer Post#12 which mentions your circumstances are covered by 13 in the TTR Terms and Conditions.   What is mentioned above seems conflicting from TTR for the following:   1. IMO that money of £200 and then £15 per month (on top of original Course Fees) was them at that time agreeing to an extension as per 13 in TTR Terms and Conditions   2. Them stating you can't extend Course as not completed enough of Course is not in TTR Terms and Conditions (that I and others can see) (Note they could be referring to 15 in TTR Terms and Conditions)   Can you clarify the above and were you informed those extra costs were due to an extension of your Course.   Again I will ask did you provide the Training Room with Medical Evidence when you asked the above?   We also still need to see the Letter from Training Room Threatening Legal Action (fully redacted) which you still haven't posted?   You need to send The Training Room a Subject Access Request (SAR) asking for 'ALL DATA' that simple phrase means whatever format they hold that data in whether it be written, email, recorded phone calls etc.   They then have 30 Calendar Days to respond to your SAR Request and that Time Limit only starts once they have acknowledged your SAR Request. They can extend that Time Limit if they need to prove identity before actioning the SAR Request so be aware of that.   A SAR Request is now FREE and make sure you get Free Proof of Posting from the Post Office     Your right of access ICO.ORG.UK   Can you please make sure you answer the questions asked of Caggers to assist you    
    • I've been trying to resolve a issue with 8 PCN issued by Tyne Tunnel 2 (tt2.co.uk). Tyne Tunnel 2 is a gated toll charged tunnel to cross the River Tyne in Newcastle. We moved in recently so all a bit new to us. My dad had been using the tunnel about twice a week and he had been paying cash for the toll fee at the booths. At some point in November 2021 they had done some constructions where the gates had been closed and payments had transitioned to online methods. My dad had been oblivious to this and been on his merry way multiple times thinking that he doesn't need to pay. So he received the first PCN some where end of November which had been issue on the 26th after which point I went on alert and sorted out the online accounts and such. However the current total of fines has amounted to £255.20 and I have appealed explaining that soon as the letters were received we have resolved the issue but they insist on us paying 8 PCN. I feel it's unfair that the fine is for the same offence which we couldn't have rectified or known until we received the first PCN letter and after the first PCN we have rectified it so feel they are being bit draconic. Any advice on this matter?

Hi there,

 

Have recently been receiving letters from Marlin regarding a Barclays credit card debt, now I'm assuming this is regarding an Egg card that I had and was subsequently sold on to Barclays, I had completely forgotten about this debt and the contact from Marlin came somewhat out of the blue.

 

The debt has obviously been sold to Marlin as my credit file shows the Barclays account to be satisfied, I have paid Marlin a nominal amount to try and keep them quiet and deflect the danger of CCJ but they still persist in sending letters and are constantly telephoning me.

 

I'm thinking that I will send them a prove it letter as the account number they had in the letter introducing themselves meant nothing to me and did not tally with the original Egg account, should I also send a CCA to Canada Square Operations?

 

Obviously I'm not answering calls apart from when I suggested that all contact with me should be via letters.

 

Anything else I should be doing.

Yes, send a CCA request and also the following letter to have them cease pestering you with calls (unanswered or not, they are still a menace).

 

 

 

FORMAL COMPLAINT - HARASSMENT BY TELEPHONE.

 

 

Account Number:

 

Dear Sirs,

 

I am writing in relation to the quantity and frequency of telephone calls that I have received from your company, which I consider to be harassment by yourselves.

 

I have verbally requested that these stop, but I am still receiving calls. (Delete if necessary)

 

I now require all further correspondence from your company to be made in (writing or email) only.

 

I am of the view that your continued harassment of me by telephone puts you in breach of The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008, and the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

 

I draw your attention to the case of Roberts v Bank of Scotland plc and another [2013] All ER (D) 88 (Jun) in the Court of Appeal.

 

The court concluded that:

(1) The existence of a debt did not give a lender the right to bombard the debtor with calls. It was for the debtor to decide whether they wanted to discuss the matter with the creditor.

 

(2) In respect of the harassment appeal, the claimant had made it perfectly clear that she had not wanted to speak to the bank, and she had been perfectly entitled to do so. Once the bank had phoned a few times, it had been clear that no progress was to be made. Further calls had been futile and should have been stopped. The judge had been right to characterise the calls as intimidation and they had been wholly unjustified.

 

 

If you continue to harass me by telephone, you will also be in breach of the Communications Act (2003) s.127 and I will report you to OFCOM, Trading Standards and The Office of Fair Trading, meaning that you will be liable to a substantial fine.

 

Please treat this letter as a formal complaint under the procedures set out by the Financial Ombudsman (FOS). As such, you are required to send me a copy of your company complaints procedure.

 

Furthermore, please note that the FOS consider it 'unfair' for you to continue with phone calls when requested not to do so.

 

The OFT also consider it an unfair practice for you to ignore my legitimate wishes on how to contact me, for example where the debtor requests contact only via written letter or email, so I now demand that you cease any phone calls forthwith.

 

Be advised that any further telephone calls from your company will be recorded. (**Even if you don‘t have recording equipment!!**)

 

This issue is not negotiable. Any further phone calls will be logged, treated as harassment and reported to the authorities as such.

 

Yours faithfully,

Cheers, will get them in the post on Monday. Should I also send a prove it letter to Marlin?

 

You say you have paid Marlin some money, I think the Prove it letter might be a bit late !

 

I would say you should be looking to see if there are any charges that can be reclaimed to reduce the outstanding balance.
