    • PCN Charge  - NTK received on 26th January for, “illegal” parking on the  Nicol Street Car Park for 11 minutes on 19th January, (having done so on the understanding that the car parks had been made free due to the COVID-19). I noticed a similar event and correspondence regarding the same car park in June last year and the advice given was to ignore the, “fine”. However I can’t find the correspondence again and wondered if the advice was followed and how it turned out?     
    • just tell them the truth surely, it wasn't purposefully does and as you insurance company say, technically you were insured and so was the vehicle. it's not as if there was no insurance whatsoever and you were purposefully driving without ever taking out any.

    • As per my old and new posts all correspondences have now ceased from all parties hence me raising issue again.   If defaulted in January 2018, surely I should have been notified?    
    • Hi   I received a NIP for traveling 39mph in a 30 zone (mobile speed camera) in December 2020. As it is my offence, the police sent a letter requesting to know who was driving with three possible outcomes: speed awareness course, 3 points of contest at court. I provided my details and sent the form off.    The police sent me a letter this week asking for confirmation of my insurance... I realised that in October 2020 I removed a private number plate off the vehicle and notified the DVLA and the V5 form but I didn't norify my insurers.    I called the insurance company today and updated my number plate and they said technically I was insured and the vehicle was insured and it depends on how linient the police will be.    I am just concerned as the recent letter states possible prosecution for driving with out insurance with a possible fine and 6 to 8 points.    If they add that to the original 3 I might be given that would be 11 for a first offence.    Has anyone got any experience on this or any advice as I am pretty worried!    Thanks

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

hello hope some one can help me.

 

as of monday just gone was told that i had to attend the jobcentre daily at different times to do a job search now been told this i had to go back to the JC the next day for 1:35 which then i was made to sign and was told since i had been up yesterday which was monday that he was going to do job search next time i come up. so after leaving the JC he forgot to give the new time which was for 1:00 for the following day when i got there he told me that and that it was his fault since he didn't tell me then was made to sign and no job search again. he gave me a new time for 9:35. to me they either can't be bothered to do the job search to help me find work or there just find it funny me turning up just to sign a bit of paper and give excuses. i do my job searching at home since i have my own computer and internet with a job match account and can't really see how making me go each day is making any difference especially when they have done nothing to help.

 

also can someone tell me if the distance from JC is too long that they can't expect you to go each day as i live 3.0 miles away. had some information that if you live within 2 miles then they can make you go each day and if 2-4 miles then they have to make to twice a week. just what i read up on the internet.

 

thanks in advance.

Be wary of what you read on the internet. Even if you lived ten miles away from the nearest JCP office, they could still drag you in on a daily basis. Distance is not a factor that is taken in to consideration. However, they should make allowances for the availability of transport. So if there is only four buses, three days a week, appointment times must take this in to account. If you have a car, don't let on and use bus timetables to your advantage.

 

If you are using public transport to get to these daily signing on sessions, I hope you are reclaiming the cost (to which you are entitled).

 

As for "job searches" - I doubt the JCP has the staff or resources to manage these sessions for everyone they drag in on a daily basis. I would recommend you keep your job search diary up to date and take it in every time. If you get asked what you did the previous day, you can pull the diary out and give them an hour by hour account of your activities.

This exercise is just to p you off and hope you will sign off.

Keep all your public transport costs (bus tickets) and each day you want a refund for the costs.

It use to be paid back in cash but now its a bank transfer to your bank account, Make a fuss and you will get

it paid back same day via faster transfer, I had to do that myself and now its on my record that payments must be same day.

 

I have no doubt that after 2 weeks at this you will end up going back to normal fortnightly signing as JCP can't afford £40 a fortnight

for travel costs for each claimant.

Yes, claim expenses for your travel. You can do so for every day you're expected to attend the Jobcentre except your normal fortnightly signing day.

The idea that all politicians lie is music to the ears of the most egregious liars.
