    • Thank you @honeybee13. I will try to write one. I read here that even without the out of court settlement some people  have not received the  criminal record but only a fine. I don't know what to think anymore. 
    • Thanks I appreciate your time How does this sound?   On FRIDAY 29TH May I used your service to send a parcel under the above reference number. The parcel did not arrive at the destination and after several exchanges with your customer service staff, I was told that the item was lost. I was also told that I would not be entitled to full compensation for my items despite having provided you with receipts for these items as I had only opted for the standard £20 compensation. I did not opt for this compensation – as you will know, there is no option to decline this basic cover when scheduling a parcel. Furthermore, it is grossly unfair for a consumer to have to insure against your negligence and contrary to the unfair terms provisions in the Consumer Rights Act. I'm quite sure that you are fully aware that any term you might have in your contract which relies on customers having insurance against your negligent handling of their items causing them to be lost is an unfair term and is unenforceable. I notice that you systematically rely on such terms to deprive your customers of the correct compensation and effectively to protect you from the consequences of your negligent handling of your customers’ sent items. If you force this to a court hearing – you can be certain that I shall be producing evidence from many different sources to show that you systematically lose parcels and decline liability on spurious grounds which are unfair and unenforceable. The contents of my parcel were worth £160. There was also the cost of the postage which was £9.92. The full amount I am claiming is therefore £169.92. You may email me at ____________ in order to arrange this payment. If I do not have reimbursement in full within 14 days then I shall issue a claim in the County Court to recover this money from you plus interest and without any further notice. Yours faithfully _____
    • Hi.   SJP = Single Justice Procedure. Here's some reading for you https://www.gov.uk/single-justice-procedure-notices   If you want to ask for an out of court settlement, you need to deal with TfL. You could write to them if you have a contact name, there are examples of letters in threads here.   HB
    • Hi,  I have sent email requesting information as to why my original email was not actioned. I did have the case number in the subject line on my email.  I only got a letter from registry trust, nothing else from courts or Shoosmiths thanks 
    • @dx100uk  I have received only the charge for this journey.  Sorry for my ignorance but what is a SJP?  the charge has been made at 21 june  2020 but I received this only yesterday. Now they ask me to make my plea and I have 21 days to do so, but I want to try an out of court settlement. There is not any court date on the papers they sent me now though.

    • 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

Hello

 

I would be grateful for some help with a debt.

 

A while back I had a mobile phone contract with Three. Got into difficulties and started to repay the debt. This was contract no1.

:|

 

I recall receiving a marketing call from Three offering a sim card / possibly another contract with Three. I

don't remember all the details as this was years ago but I think the offer was something like £30 a month plus any calls I make.

This was all done via telephone and no paperwork was signed. Contract no2.

 

A sim arrived but I never used it. I would occasionally receive letters from Three as well as various debt collectors which I ignored.

 

I have now started to receive letters from Lowell and the are chasing over £600 from me for contract no2.:mad2:

 

Whilst I admit I should have sorted this out before it spiralled out of control, I am at a loss as to what I need to do.

 

I cannot afford to pay £600. Incidentally this amount is still climbing

- I am not sure if any of it are charges.

 

All I know is that I never made a single call on the new sim.

 

I would like to know what steps I should take to resolve this.

 

 

Many thanks

DX... Think you mean 3 XD ^__^

Anyhow... Three sell all their debts... I know this for a fact.

 

Might be time to SAR 3 and see what they have! :) £10 and 40 days...


 

We could do with some help from you.

Ok...thanks guys. ...will send 3 a SAR as suggested. In order to get Lowell off my back in the meantime is there a letter I could send them?

 

 

I am determined to fight 3. Most contracts are 12, 18 or 24 months. This has been going on for more 2 years..you would think that at some point the 'contract' would end!!

 

I would be interested to know if anyone else here is in the same situation.

 

Dx...you were asking about the default and dates....can I ask why is this relevant?

 

Thanks for all your help so far.

What exactly am I looking for when I do get the information they hold? :|

 

What will my argument be? What is the significant of the default placed on my file by Lowell???

 

So many questions!!! I only wished I had resolved this ages ago....:sad::sad::sad::sad::sad:

I am afraid life happened.

 

I was earning so little money and trying to pay off other debts, this one didn't really feature.

I don't recall getting many letters / bills from three regarding this contract.

 

Because of other debts, I at one point stopped opening all debt type letters as I was 'drowning' in debt and the easy option was to bury my head in sand.

 

It's only recently that I have noticed this debt has grown to over £600 without me ever making a single call on the sim.

 

I suppose the dispute now is how can I owe three money on a sim never activated?

yes ok that is a good point.

 

and one that they cannot disprove either.

 

pers then i'd not be worried about it.

 

you could if you want totally dispute the debt

by stating that the sim was never activated

and as far as you are aware, that never started the contract.

Thanks dx.

 

Just being able to 'talk' about this is giving me the strength to deal with it.

 

Thanks for your advise and encouragement.
