    • if your loan is an unsecured loan, but you own a home were they to make you bankrupt, could you lose the home....... .............   i will assume you are talking about your wife's debts? as you've said YOU don't own a home ?  
    • Shops at the retail park beside me were mobbed today, last week the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh was as busy as it ever has been.
    • I have a loan with Commsave dx, the deductions come straight from my wages. When you join you tell them how much you want to save either weekly or monthly and you authorise them take deductions from your wages towards your savings account with them, same thing apply's when you have a loan with them.
    • I went from Virgin Media to Sky Q earlier this year as I wasn't a great fan of Tivo and was keen to try Sky Q.   When it was installed, I was offered the chance to replace my aging (ten year old) dish which I accepted.   In the last few days, I've come to the conclusion that Sky Q isn't for me and that I'd ideally like to downgrade it at the end of my contract to go back to using my old Sky+ HD box, which I still have.   Much to my surprise, I subsequently found out that the LNB on my dish would not be compatible as Q uses a special "wide band" LNB and the older boxes do not.   I contacted Sky to confirm this, which they did.   They also told me that there would be nothing they could do and that if I wanted to continue using my dish with my older box then I would have to pay to get it re-fitted myself which, after some investigation, would cost me at least £150 pounds.   The issue of future compatibility wasn't mentioned anywhere in the literature or the official Sky Q contract, but the Sky employee I was talking to agreed that it could present a problem and said that he would pass it "up the ladder" to see if the wording could be changed to better explain it to prevent any future problems - all the while telling me there was nothing they could do for me specifically.   I understand that I'm getting the service I paid for, which I have no issue with.   I understand that I'm only loaning the equipment and that it has to be returned at the end of the contract.   That I also have no problem with.   The contract also states that the dish becomes mine at the point of installation as well, which is also fine.   Basically, Sky have provided the service stated in the contract.   My problem with this is that Sky must clearly know that many people use, and still use, older boxes.   They still sell viewing cards for these older boxes, so that in itself should be enough to prove that they are aware of the compatibility issues between the two pieces of hardware.   Should there not have been even a small advisory akin to "Customers please note: Sky Q dishes are not compatible with older hardware" ?   By choosing to omit this information,  it not only prevented me from making an informed decision at installation, as I could have apparently asked for what's called a "Hybrid LNB" which would be compatible with older hardware, but it will also leave me significantly out of pocket at the end of the contract.   Is there anything in this ?.  Can I challenge this in any capacity ?.   Ideally, I'd like them to let me out of the Sky Q contract so I can downgrade to the Sky+ HD box I own, but I accept this will likely not be possible.   I'd be interested in your thoughts.   Thankyou.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I would expect any covert surveillance by the DWP to be considerably more professional than you detail here. Irrespective of what the rights and wrongs of your individual case may be, I'd be surprised if Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum were from the DWP. They sound like a couple of very amateur private investigators - if they're anything to do with your household at all. I would look for an alternative answer to this.

Brigade i suspect there is a lot more to this than meets the eye. If the information posted above is true i think they will have issues with the benefits agency. The fact that he contributes to the bills would count as income and are the council only paying part of the rent or if they are paying the max LHA the extra rent would also potentially be counted as income.

Of course it does. When added to everything else it suggests a stable relationship with a planned future.

 

Apart from him being there more often what will change after they get married?

 

Don't forget a DM's decision is based on probability.

We had an investigator watching one of our neighbours last year. They just sat in a car opposite for a week or two. Another neighbour who was living with her partner but claiming as single was very worried and asked us about it. To be honest we did not notice until it was brought to our attention. As it happened they where not after the one who's partner lived their but another neighbour who's father was living in her spare room and it was about HB & CTB.

If you see them again ring the police on the non emergency number. I had to do this the other week because there was someone hanging around outside my house for over 2 hours. They sent PCSO's out, they found him, questioned him and it turned out to be innocent but the point is if you are being watched then they will have to tell the police who will come and tell you

Go and ask them next time you see them,,or do what Ros0169 suggested...if you have nothing to hide and you think they are watching you then get them questioned.

Hello there.

 

Fwiw, I think the advice is right, there's no point driving yourself mad. Coincidences do happen in life and I shall be interested to see what the outcome is with you.

 

When I was on the anxiety management course, one of the little mottoes they gave us was along the lines of 'what can I do to short-circuit this worry, instead of just stressing over it?'. I try to do it myself, although I know it's not always easy.

 

My best, HB

He pays part of the rent & helps with bills.

 

Wouldn't you pay part of the rent to keep a roof over your childrens' head?

To be honest the intention isn't the point. If he is paying it it will probably be counted as income and as such be of interest to the dwp. I am not saying what is right or wrong just what is a possibility

It's during the day so a lot of the council/DWP will still be at work (it's just saddos like me that log in during lunch :0) )

 

I believe a DWP employee posted on here that there is a form that is sent out that releases people from being under caution. As to how often this is sent out, or the timescales involved, I cannot comment. Anecdotally, there was someone posting on here who had -- I believe -- reached the statutory limit for action to be taken against them but had heard nothing (although their case was slightly different). One thing is clear: the wheels of the machine can move very slowly, which is not the answer you want to hear, I know.

 

This may well be a stupid question, but can you not phone the investigator and ask about the status of the investigation? After the IUC occurs I believe it gets sent up north to Scotland for transcription, and there is a stage of further consideration for prosecution by a management level not involved in the original investigation (I could be wrong on this and am open to correction). So it could be that the investigation has been shelved and they've just not told you, or, it could still be in the machinery somewhere awaiting further analysis. I believe that, if it is referred on to the PF/CPS, you should be informed of this as well, although once again, my memory is hazy, and so I wouldn't take this as gospel.

 

Another option would be to speak to someone in Welfare Rights and have them pick up the phone on your behalf (often they are ex-government employees and so may know the investigators in the area).

Don't know if this helps. I had my IUC in late June. The overpayment letter was received by me a month later and I started paying back the money in early August. Towards the end of September I heard from them that they intend to take me to court and the case will not be heard for another three months. Yes it is a very slow process and your life is on hold and you are constantly sick and worried. This has been one of the worse years of my life and I have spent it wishing my life away and it is still not over yet. Hope this help albeit that it is not good news but then things may be different where you reside.
