David Rubin and partners. I am only posting this cos I am so upset at how we were all treated

 

You should be due statutory redundancy.

 

https://www.gov.uk/redundant-your-rights/redundancy-pay

 

This will have come as a shock. But you need to make sure you register ASAP for any entitlements you may have. e.g JSA, council tax benefit. You may be waiting quite awhile, before you know the position. Benefits can take awhile to come through, with forms to be completed.

 

I don't know what your finances are like, but if you have any mortgage redundancy cover, you should notify the Insurers of a possible claim.

 

Also check your bank statements and see what you have outgoing. You may have to cancel or reduce your ongoings.

 

Get onto the local Job Centre to see what they have available and start applying. Your colleagues will be doing the same, so you need to see if you can get there first.

We could do with some help from you.

How odd that Roxburghe’s director Gary Osner’s LinkedIn profile already has his job title changed to Managing Director, ZZPS Ltd. A company set up ages ago...

 

I should imagine that this has been on the cards for quite awhile. I think this company lost their credit licence earlier this year, which would have concerned current clients.

David Rubin is also the administrator for HFO (UK) Holdings Ltd, which went into VOLUNTARY liquidation – in other words, the company chose its own liquidator. I would put money on the same thing happening here. After over two years, the HFO (UK) Holdings situation has still not been sorted out, and as it owns HFO Services (which has lots of assets), it will be interesting to see where all this goes.

Thank you very much for your advice. I am seeing my solicitor later on today to go through my options as I think they have acted illegally so I will update my posts on here

 

What they have done is unfortunately standard practice. I have known this to happen to a few friends, who have turned up for work as normal with 10 years + service and they have had the annoucement followed by security escorting them out of the building.

 

You will get a letter from the administrators shortly which will contain all the relevant information about your rights etc.

 

You have been made redundant with immediate effect and there is a standard process that is followed.

 

ACAS are worth phoning, as they will have information about this situation. They will know more than your Solicitors, unless you have an employment law specialist.

Other companies to look out for in the HFO Capital/Roxburghe/Concilian world are:

 

– Cograd Ltd (formerly Roxburghe parking Services Ltd) opened by Gary Osner of Rox, but director now Badri Nathan & ultimately owned by Concilian

– ZZPS Ltd, owned wholly by Gary Osner

 

– Peckwater Capital Ltd (started in Ireland recently by Alasdair Turnbull and another director of HFO Capital Ltd (Ireland)

– Prime Arbor Finance Ltd and Prime Arbor Ltd, founded recently by Badri Nathan (and Turnbull is associated), but no info on ultimate owner

 

A dormant (now closed) company registered by Turnbull changed its name last year to Prime Arbor Capital – I now assume to protect the name until launch.

 

Watch this space.

Going by comments on the Parking Pranksters blog, there is not much sympathy for the staff who have lost their jobs. I am inclined to agree with them:-

 

If you lie down with dogs, you will get fleas. Anybody who worked for this shabby outfit will have been aware of their reputation, and their intimidatory tactics in attempting to collect so-called 'debts' relating to fake parking tickets.

Somehow I struggle to feel compassion with those who worked for this outfit. If your job is to screw other people then it's good news that you're now the one who is screwed.

 

These are the reasons why the OFT refused to renew their licence:-

 

  • Sending debt collection letters which misrepresented debtors' legal position
  • Misleading and otherwise inappropriate behaviour by HFO and Roxburghe agents during phone calls to debtors
  • Failing to properly investigate disputed debts
  • Failure to respond appropriately to the concerns of regulators, including the OFT.

I think that’s just a generous summary. The detail of the group’s activities – visible all over CAG, and especially emanating from Turnbull Rutherford – was astonishing. Good riddance.
