    • hi   Thank you for your reply.   nice link . thank you very much.   I know I will get my refund. it has been offered. I have been told I am right about the situation. It does seem like this is in debate but this was clarified a long time ago.   Do you think I would be wasting my time to try and stop it happening to others?   I just would not want this happing to anyone else.   Thank you again                
    • Just ask for the refund you appear to be entitled to.  They'll either pay it or they'll explain to you why they won't.  Forget everything else.   Or you could try here:  https://www.railforums.co.uk/forums/disputes-prosecutions.152/
    • you stated :   "I would expect revenue officers are quite aware of the time of day they are manning barriers. i'd also go as far as to say they don't bother to do this in off peak times... as there would be little point, no loss of revenue to protect".     They were there when I should have had an off peak option, they did not give it me!! I asked for the lower fare. they refused!! And threatened a fine!! ( i did not know the jargon , that is true)  but "lower fare option "  should be o.k for them to understand.   When I say, to the effect, that there was a lower fare option listed on your computer before I left the station  Please can I have that as this higher fare seems far too much. Is there another option?   No.   I had full fare or a hefty fine options only.   you stated:   "your intended return was off-peak, but you didn't tell them.."   I asked for the lower fare, they refused. repeatedly. They had the option to charge the low fare but absolutely refused and threaten a fine.   I do not have to know any jargon.  I just said it was too much and there was a lower option before i departed and  why can't I have that? They said no and that I had to pay the high fare.   Which is untrue. They should have said that was o.k and gave any restrictions on the ticket!   you stated "this thread is getting boring and repetitive. "   You could help me and the many others  who may read this) who would like advice and offer suggestions of things to ask or mention with the complaint.   What would you say? How can I stop this from happening to others?   I have been told I was right by the staff at the station. So I know I am in the right.   Please can you be a bit more friendly and helpful?  Come on, lets try and do some good here.   I was hoping people might suggest some ideas.   Perhaps we can move onto the questions I should ask or things I should state regards my complaint. with time running out?  If not for me,  for other travellers, who will be going through this same ordeal if we do not help them.   kind regards.          
    • yes because 1000's of people believe a DCA is a bailiff and they are not and that penalty charges are lawful, they are not, so blindly cough up...   worth a few letters / free emails to try it on pays for the staff drinks down the pub that night with free money.   dx  
    • they have already 'outsourced' it ..........to a dca [crs - well that's harlands anyway] watchout for Zinc next.. but don't look at the bottom of the letter as you'll see its the same address again...}   forget about it go enjoy your life.

On my last signing day, my knee locked before I was able to sign on, so I filled in a sickness form and this has been approved.

 

I completed the date I will be well again to be the full 14 days as I wasn't sure how long my knee would take to feel strong again, I have a cartilage problem so once it locks once, it tends to do it again a few times before settling down.

 

Now as I completed the date I will be well will be my next signing day - I completed sick from 3rd - 17th March

 

My question is

 

Do I have to go and sign on this day?

 

Or do I miss it as technically I am still sick?

 

Any advice welcome

 

Thanks

If you declared yourself sick from the 3rd to the 17th March inclusive, that's actually 15 days, not 14. Strictly speaking, JCP staff should have questioned that.

 

I advise that you attend and sign, and hope no-one notices.

Let me rephrase my last post - you should sign on the 17th because, should someone question this JSA28 (sickness form) at a later date, you can say that you miscounted the days but you did actually turn up and sign on the 15th day, so you were indeed fit for work. As you have said in your post that you genuinely will be well again, that's the best approach.

I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee, It will randomly lock, it is also very painful when using steps, My GP thinks that it is unlikely to improve, And as a result my good side ,(my foot )wears out soles my footwear prematurely , I feel that i should be able to claim for this, as being on only the pre assessment rate of ESA i can't afford to keep buying shoes ,

The DWP will only allow you to non attend through sickness or other reasons iirc 3 times in any 12mths period without being sanctioned , this may of been changed since the con dumbs got in power so the number of times maybe less now

:Jobseekers and Sickness:

 

Jobseekers are allowed two periods of sickness, of up to fourteen days each, during each complete twelve months from the start of the claim. Completion of a JSA28 form with acceptable details of the sickness, allows the claimant to be treated, and paid benefit, as actively seeking employment during the sickness.

 

Disputes about other reasons for non attendance; bereavement, childcare problems, domestic emergencies, etcetera, are referred to a Jobcentreplus decision maker for determination of whether the reason constitutes good cause for the non attendance.

 

Margaret.
