    • There will be no issues with a course offer if the dates are as you say. The usual cut off is four months from the date of the offence. This is so as to give the driver the time to accept the offer and take the course before prosecution becomes "timed out" at six months.   However, if the NIPs really were the first to be issued and there are no issues with the address details then both have a cast iron defence to the speeding allegation. The first is dated 20 days after the alleged offence and the second 23 days after the alleged offence. The Road Traffic Offenders' Act makes it quite clear that if a NIP is not served within 14 days of the alleged offence then no prosecution can take place. But as I said, late first NIPs are very rare and both need to check all the details I have mentioned before they decline any out of court offers of a course or Fixed Penalty.    For information, courses are normally offered for speeds up to (Limit +10% + 9mph). Only one course of any type can be taken in three years (with the date of the offences being used to calculate that period) and courses are not offered in Scotland. However, if a driver is not offered a course for any reason when he would normally qualify (including late NIPs) he has no right of appeal to have one offered. If the matter goes to court the court has no power to order a course.
    • My grievance against my manager is on Wednesday at 12.00 noon. A union officer is representing me. The representative for my manager is a product manager. I was told today that she is the Daughter or a Step-Daughter of the manager. Is this a conflict of interest? Am I correct in saying that, because the manager is the subject, the hearing has to be carried out by a person higher than the manager such as a director? if so, the product manager is not entitled to carry out the hearing. I'm pretty certain that I read this in law books. My Brother is a licensed union chairman but has since left his previous employment.  He is certain that I am correct . Any help would be gratefully appreciated.   diecastdave
    • Ok cool many thanks!  Much appreciated...I will check everything out now and answer all those questions!
    • Sorry,  its regular outgoings of payments. It’s income related they’re on, not contribution based.  Mum and applicant were totally unaware of the rules in regards to deprivation of capital.   On income related ESA but claim housing benefit and council tax support.   He hasn’t came into a huge chunk of money. It’s been spent over a duration of four years. appointee’s livid, and worried that he’ll be homeless.  
    • Hi all           I spoke to the courts earlier today and they advised me that the points placed on my licence were removed in October 2019, and that a court date is set for November 26th. Guess what ??? I had not been given that info either. The courts were very helpful and explained to me that everything had been sent to my previous address (which I have not lived in or owned for 5 years) The car in question was registered in March 2016 and I have owned since new and has never been registered to my old address. I have proof of this down to the point of not taxing the car March 2017 as the car was zero tax I did not realise I still had to go online and tax it, the summons for that was sent to my current home address.  it is very strange that the police directed everything to my previous address. i then contacted the police on the number given by the courts and was told to forward proof I was out of country at time of offence for them to look at, the police officer was very understanding and quite helpful giving the information. I have to e mail her tomorrow and will give an update when I know more as this previous address thing is really confusing !!!

I have just taken delivery of a so called refurbished HP Envy from PC world . Guess what? YES its faulty .

 

 

A rather obvious fault no sound at all .

 

 

I emailed them no response

 

 

then I phoned them a long wait to no avail

 

 

I then phoned the sales dept and pretended to buy something.

 

 

Instant answer ( no surprise there) they put me thro to the relevant department

after a very long wait they said they would collect it for repair turnaround 7 working days .

 

 

There is no way I was having a refurbished PC repaired

 

 

I was passed on to the Helpline another long wait I asked them to phone me back .

 

 

Up to now no phone call .

 

 

Its going back and as I promised I would leave a tale my experiences on as many websites as possible.

 

 

DO NOT BUY A REFURBISHED PC FROM PC WORLD.

 

 

I hope I have made myself clear.

 

 

Saved nothing loads of lost time followed by a terrible customer service.

 

 

I feel I have been lied to and cheated.

 

 

In fact I have. BE WARNED They are liars.

Why don't you go into a PC World store & ask to speak to a Manager. As by ringing & emailing them all you get is what I call "non answers from unknown sources".

 

So I would take the HP Envy with you so you can show what the issue is & tell him your not happy & that you want him to help you sort this out.

 

If you get no joy.

 

Then contact PC World Head Office.

I hope you get this sorted.

 

Good luck!

Hi

 

 

Thanks Its actually a desktop. When I take the audio cord off the motherboard and reconnect it then reboot the sound works for a while sometimes I get a horrible screeching sound . Then when I reboot again no sound it works for a while then goes off . Its stopped all together now. I've have no reply from HP customer care after trying for 3 days ( the name itself is a joke) To get thro to PC world I pretended to buy a HP envy they told me they are refurbed by HP then they said they were out of stock when I told them I was not having a it repaired and wanted it replaced they claimed they had no stock. I had just put two of them in my pretend sales basket. The story then changed again and they admitted they had stock , they now tell me they will replace it. I'm not confident. at all. They have shown themselves to put it mildly as a bunch of liars. . Ill keep this thread going and see what happens. One thing is certain with PC WORLD if you cant get thro with a problem phone the sales line they will answer right away. Thanks for your help.....

AS its refurbished the stores don't deal with it so I am lead to believe. Any way its only a week since I bought it why should I be calling round stores to solve a clumsy problem like this . If they were committed at all to customer care it should be sorted after one phone call. The don't give a damn. I phoned again and pretended to buy one and someone I hope is sorting it out now I had to lie and pretend I was buying one. I should not have to stoop to these depths They then put me thro to the right department. Its being replaced not fixed I hope . All this hassle It wasn't cheap enough for that Thanks for your help .. I will be writing to head office . The problem probably start at the top. I'll get no joy .. I just want what I paid for. Who is the name on the email. I may forward him my emails to customer care.

Sorry forgot they did the envy desktops as well as laptops

 

not heard of any issues with the envy desktops, the only similar thing ive heard of is the touchsmarts having crackling and popping noises on sound and thats down to wifi driver errors

 

good luck with it
