    • Thanks,    I've read the info from the link, nothing I wasn't aware of really. I wouldn't talk to a DCA anyway or anybody else over the phone for just about anything, hence the reason I refused to give them my details when they rang up. The only "conversation" I had was when they rang me and asked me to confirm my details, which I refused to do because it could have been anybody on the phone and as I said, I'd never heard of them anyway at that point. I asked them to contact me in writing, if they wished to pursue the matter, with "a copy of the Agreement" and the reply was that "there isn't one". At that point I said "we have nothing more to discuss then" and ended the call.    I'm still not happy about posting the entire details online but I'll take a look at some of the other threads to see if there's anything relative. 
    • Looks like my mistake. The new machine requires the full reg to be entered now, whereas before, only the first two numbers were required. I entered the first two numbers.
    • Reciveed a summary warrant, phoned up the council who said it was not longer anything to do with them and I'd have to speak to walker love the firm who deal with their summary warrants. I said I wouldn't have anything to do with them becasue it looks like a dodgy dca and I  I don't trust them, the debt is with the council not walker love. Anyway turns out they have no record of an arrangement to pay last years outstanding amount so whatever's gone wrong they have cancelled this years installments, even though regular payments have been made, they then took a summary warrant for last years and this years outstanding amount. I've cleared last years outstanding amount to the council and have a payment reference number, and the council say they'll make contact regarding a single person's discount  which was missed and then calculate the payments for the rest of this year. They say they sent out three letters threatening the summary warrant which were not received. Now to my question, my argument that the debt was with the council and not walker love, and as I've paid and agreed to pay what and the council say they'll contact walker love and stop the action, is this correct or will walker love still pursue? 
    • I'm trying to get my head around this. In effect, over the years you have been paying your own bill for yourself and also the bill for your neighbours usage as well – as metered. At the same time your neighbours have been paying their own water bills based on an SS charge. This means that Yorkshire water have been receiving double for your neighbours water. Now they are proposing to return to you the portion which which they now say represents the amount of water used by a neighbour. I think it would be interesting to talk to your neighbours and see if you can get copies of their bills over the years. Our Yorkshire water proposing to return to you the same amount of money that they charge your neighbours? Even if your neighbours don't have all of their bills to hand, maybe they've got one or two bills available and if it looks as if there is a discrepancy then maybe your neighbours would be kind enough to send the water company and SAR as well. I don't know if I have suggested that you read our customer services guide – but if I haven't then you should do so and implement the advice there in case you have any telephone dealings with the auto company. You haven't said whether you want to have a metered supply or to have an SS charge. Please let us know because it makes a big difference to the final solution you will be looking for. If you want to metered supply then I think you are absolutely entitled to insist on it and you are entitled to insist that Yorkshire water and if this is in your garden, they should then pay for any repairs.
    • Not sure if this is the correct forum, so I apologise in advance.   So, the situation I am currently in.. is that a family member opened a Littlewoods account in my name, at the address I used to live at (Family home). The account was opened in November 2018, goods were obtained and then payments were missed. I usually check my credit report and score every month, but (somewhat foolishly) I didn't bother checking for a few months as my score remained the same. I didn't notice this account on my report until several months after it was opened. I obtained statutory credit reports and went through everything. I then filed this issue with Action Fraud.   I contacted Littlewoods and explained the situation to the fraud team, re-iterating the fact that an account was opened at an address I had not lived at for almost two and a half years at the point that this account was opened, not to mention the account is under a 'Mrs', when I am male. They proceeded to tell me that it was a civil matter and not one for them to deal with. I told them that the amount owed wasn't the issue, but rather the adverse effect it was having on my credit score as I was considering applying for a mortgage soon. They simply doubled down on their 'civil matter' point and hung up on me.    I got in touch with Experian, who added a notice of correction to the entry on my report and provided a template for me to send off to Shop Direct. I sent this letter off and received zero response. The family member had started to make payments after I threatened reporting this to the relevant people, but the account, and the several months of missed payments, still remain as a black mark on my credit file. I will add that I got a CIFAS marker placed on my account to try and prevent this sort of thing from happening again in the future.   I have also filed this issue with the Financial Ombudsman. I guess I am posting this because I am not quite sure where to go next or what my next actions should be to get this removed from my credit report. It is incredibly disappointing that a family member would do this to me, but it is also extremely annoying that Littlewoods themselves have been very unhelpful in trying to rectify this issue that has occurred at such a point in my life when I am considering applying for a mortgage. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.   Thank you.

Reading the Syria thread. So it's all about World dominance. I wonder how these countries who want to hold the west to ransom will appreciate not having their luxury goods, BMW's, Mercs, Rollers, Range Rovers, Ferraris, Bentleys, Gucci, Chanel, Mulberry, Louis Vuitton, Champagne, Scotch Whiskey, etc etc because I don't see them producing similar for themselves. If they tinker with gas pipelines these goods won't be so available to them in more ways than one. They need to all calm down and talk sensibly.

 

The Desert is getting bigger so I would have thought you would want as many friends as possible to help sustain life in such conditions.

Reading the political threads on here, just shows the skulduggery all around. No one person takes the UK to war so money spent on enquiries I believe will never reveal the whole truth.

 

I hope we are not witnessing another cover up of abusers where the police and others are being undermined in their investigations into the truth. This is not encouraging people to come forward, as it is showing how witnesses are being discredited, how convenient for those who are guilty.

 

It seems houses coming onto the market for average home buyers have a high probability to just be another addition to a portfolio somewhere. These investors make it their business to find the bargains, very friendly with estate agents, closely involved with developers, all this making a house purchase more difficult and forcing the country into renting. At least overseas investors can't take the property back to their countries.

 

I fear we are being dragged back to the 80's again, Lloyds's shares up for sale for all, sound familiar? Bringing down public institutions so privatisation is inevitable, feels like so much will be owned by so few. We must make sure they don't start feeding the livestock dodgy stuff.

When has it ever been the case to pay tax on tax; silly me petrol duty has VAT on it.

Oh dear, I only got 1% pay rise this year says the rich man; tell you what I'd take the 1% of your £1 million salary over my pension rise anyday.

We're all in it together, RUBBISH. Percentages don't work, want it to be a fairer society give every working age person the same pay rise of only £1000 a year capped for life and listen to who moans the loudest. Yes you guessed it, "The people who aren't in it together."

Fat people, druggies and alcholoics clog up the NHS, strange the last time I was there I felt old age should be banned and anyone playing a sport should not be let through the doors. The National health is there no matter who or what, can you say that for BUPA! The rich always use the many as their safe guard.

When I was young and every thing was Nationalised, YES the didn't make money; everybody did!!! and I owned it. Strange when everything was sold off I never got my cheque, did you?

The latest energy saving, money saving devices go into the newest devices for the people with the most, who can afford to buy them saving them even more money. The poor who cant afford solar panel and new car with zero road tax pay through the nose for everything using more so paying more with the smallest pay rises.

 

Ever wondered why the rich poor gap is getting wider.

 

Change starts with a single person, if only we could stop the rich killing that person off, oh yes, forgot, that's what we call politics. The party system is designed to stop change, only a Nuclear war will change anything now.

 

People forget greed is bad!

Yes UB. They're trying to discredit JC but imo it aint working!

 

We are really starting to see the true colours of those we thought really cared. I was disappointed to hear comments from a household name how we may as well live in China if JC elected. How ridiculous. This person thinks JC will rock the markets. The only people rocking the markets are those who peddle grim gossip which shallow city dealers use for their own ends. Challenging hefty rents and runaway house prices is a positive move, even for investors. If you don't address these issues, there will be empty property eventually, your portfolio is only as lucrative as those willing to buy or rent. Too much greed will desseminate that.

 

The Kennedys 9.30 tnite BBC1 back to the 70's:-D

 

Listening to how the gun lobby in USA dictates to a so called democracy. Money before people again.

 

I think you have just backed up nicely the governments reasoning for reducing housing benefit.

When you read this stuff it makes you feel all we are succumbing to is being a playground for the rich. If there is all this dosh swimming around in our economy, why are we all always being made aware of charities needing money. I watched a programme this morn where a wheelchair football club were trying to raise money for more adapted wheelchairs to enable more participation in the sport. When you think of the wages in premiership football, endorsements, sponsorships etc, let's hope the club get their cash quickly.

 

Loadsa money! Another institution in others hands

With ref to the Lottery, Camelot say the winning ticket bought in Worcester. If they have ascertained this, which can't be hard as all info on their system, how can other claims be bonified? I would expect them to know the shop it was purchased the date and time, from that CCTV can be checked if was working. We are told only two tickets won so how can hundreds of people claim the same? Were there hundreds of winners then:madgrin:

strange as now read on Yahoo that the woman who first said she has the winning ticket has to wait at least 180 days before any pay out? so who has actually won? If it was me I would not go public, you soon learn who your friends are if you do!

Well, she won't have to wait that long to find out now!

 

As I see it, the rightful person chose not to come forward for their own reasons, but has done so now.

£33m Lotto jackpot winner to remain anonymous

28 January 2016

From the section Hereford & Worcester

Lottery numbers

Image caption

The £33m sum is the biggest prize since the National Lottery was launched in November 1994

UK lottery operator Camelot has received a "valid claim" for a record £33m Lotto jackpot prize, it says.

The holder of the winning ticket - bought in Worcester for the 9 January draw - has opted to remain anonymous.

About £66m had been up for grabs to players, but it was the unclaimed £33,035,323 that had people checking their old tickets.

In the days since the winning numbers were announced, Camelot has been inundated with claims.

Camelot said the fact that a ticket had been validated within 180 days of the draw meant it had not been submitted under its lost, stolen destroyed or damaged policy.

One woman, who bought a ticket in Worcester, had sought to verify whether hers was the winner after putting it through the wash, damaging its identifying barcode.

A Camelot spokesperson said: "It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money. We would like to remind all National Lottery players to check their tickets every time they play."

The operator has been processing "hundreds of claims" of stolen, lost or destroyed tickets.

The prize money is half the record Lotto jackpot win - shared with a couple from Hawick who claimed their prize within days of the 9 January draw.

Do you know the winner of the £33million Lottery jackpot? Email news@mailonline.co.uk

By ANDY DOLAN and CHRISTIAN GYSIN and EMILY KENT SMITH FOR THE DAILY MAIL

 

PUBLISHED: 14:41, 28 January 2016 | UPDATED: 19:46, 29 January 2016

 

The grandmother who said she had accidentally put a £33million lottery ticket through her washing machine could now face prosecution after the true winner claimed the jackpot.

 

Lottery organiser Camelot announced that, after days of speculation, the lucky ticket-holder had finally announced themselves, but wished to remain anonymous. Camelot has now warned it could take action if it suspected anyone of attempting to 'defraud the National Lottery'.

 

This rules out Susanne Hinte as Camelot does not pay out on damaged tickets till after its six-month claim deadline.

 

Hinte poses in front of her washing machine after claiming her winning £33million ticket was ruined in there

 

The winner of the £33m jackpot has chosen to remain anonymous

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous, but it is not grandmother-of-four Susanne Hinte, 48, of Worcester, (pictured) who said she had washed the winning ticket in her jeans

 

 

The news sparked calls for the 48-year-old – who has not been seen since Saturday – to be prosecuted over her production of a crumpled lottery ticket on which the ‘winning’ numbers were virtually the only information still legible.

 

As neighbours accused her of attempting fraud, Camelot left the door open to taking action against anyone who had tried to fraudulently claim the outstanding £33,035,323. Earlier this week, it said it would act if it thought someone had ‘intentionally attempted to defraud the National Lottery’. It received hundreds of claims in addition to Miss Hinte’s.
