    • Can’t answer the other questions, but ABS on ice does not always work.  ABS works by detecting one wheel is stopped (sliding) while the others are still turning. It then releses the breaking to that wheel etc. However  on ice it’s very easy for all 4 wheels to lock up. Under that circumstance the ABS thinks the car has stopped and does not come into operation. It’s possible that is what happened in this case.    Was the damage significant. Airbags don’t trigger for every accident, I think it’s estimated over 20mph on impact, do you have an idea how fast he was still going?   Regarding insurance, they may be suggesting the ongoing costs going forward would be reduced for a thrived party claim only? I assume he is fully comp?
    • Hi, There is quite a lot regarding my current issues, I shall try be as clear and concise as possible. Dec 2008 - unemployed, applied for £250 credit card from Capital One. Jan 2009 - accepted for £1000. Credit card maxed in a matter of days mainly on gambling and drugs. Called after 5 months activation to remind them I was unemployed and the card was unaffordable. Some sort of payment plan arranged which was rarely upheld by myself, sporadic minimal payments. 2010 - credit limit raised to £1600 without my request. Again all spent on gambling and drugs. Vast proportion of spends on statement show gambling sites. Repayments often withdrawals direct from said gambling sites. 2013 - Mother pays off £1400, notes state student, zero income, unaffordable, mother cut up card. Me and my mother ask for account to be closed but this does not show in notes. Called back once to query any PPI. 8 months later promotional material sent to my door advising account has been upgraded, cashback offer, etc. I ticked the box and sent the form back. Requested new 'lost' card. Again spent completely on gambling £1600+. Many payday loans taken out to try pay back. StepChange charity seeked by myself and was paying them back. Had to cancel this repayment plan as I was again unemployed and it was unaffordable. Debt being chased by Apex. Debt returned to Capital One, they send a letter advising it is with them unless notified otherwise. 2016 - Debt sold to Cabot without notification. Apparently Cabot sent a Capital One headed letter through a third party printing company, which was not received. Oct 2016 - Dispute letter sent to Cabot. 2018 - CCJ issued. Call Capital One to request my application form as I was sure I was unemployed and thought I may need evidence for Court. Incorrect documents sent 7 times, speak to manager who suggests sending SAR and raised a complaint for me. Can't believe contents of SAR, various other complaints raised, investigated and rejected by Capital One. Clear written permission to take to Financial Ombudsman. March 2019 - Court, threatened with prison or full in AoE form. Form filled in. £50 a month taken from wages by Morgan Clarke. Disputes raised with Cabot, AoE eventually suspended. Query dispute letter with no response for over 2 years, CCJ is now offered to be removed but they intend to keep the AoE money and offer me minimal compensation. Now major issues with FOS. As some of the complaints relate to over 6 years ago, state they will not investigate, although Capital One have given consent for this, FOs believe this is not consent but a referral. Account balance stands at £1700+ although the value of account minus interest and other (some now illegal) charges, I work out £4.31. No fixed address, they have my mother's where I do stay sometimes, mainly stay at friends, sofa surf, etc. Lots more issues and lots of evidence. Don't know where to turn.  
    • Is there an angle regarding the Consumer Rights Act 2015 ("CRA")? Assuming it might be unfair for Royal Mail to hide behind not entering into a contract for the purpose of limiting their liability.   From 1 October 2015, the CRA covers all aspects of unfair terms in business-to-consumer contracts which had previously been covered by UCTA and the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.  It deals with implied terms in relation to the quality of goods and services, including digital content, and regulates attempts on the part of a trader to exclude its liability for breach.  The CRA also introduced a "fairness" test.  Any term which causes "a significant imbalance" in the parties' respective positions, to the detriment of the consumer and in a way which is contrary to the requirement of good faith, will be regarded as "unfair".   A term that is "unfair" is not binding on the consumer, and the consumer can treat it as struck out of the contract. The remainder of the contract will stand if it is capable of doing so according to the usual principles of severability.
    • scan or keep everything they have  6yrs. do not move without informing them.

Hi there

 

Quick question, one which would be helpful for many others as well.

 

1. Can someone have a friend with them when they go to the Job center to sign on? EG to act as a witness?

 

2. What part of the regulations allow this?

 

I am pretty sure the answer is yes, just need the regs to back me up when I go with my friend next. Today he opened his claim and I was refused permission to go up with him.

... take along a friend who is 6'4", a bodybuilder and who has a death stare. Nothing like a bit of subtle intimidation for the JC clerk :)

Thank you all kindly.

 

Now as the representative, can I make a complaint, or does the claimant have too?

 

The situation was that the claimant needed to go upstairs, I went to go through and I stated that I was with "him"

She said no, you have to wait down here.

No questions asked etc

 

I later asked for details to make a complaint to the center manager and explained why, she said I had no right to go up there. I explained that the regulations allow me to. She got quite rude about it.

 

Question is, as the non claimant do I do anything this time, or just take that handy document that I just printed out, with me next Wednesday :)

 

Along with the universal toolkit etc.

 

To quote a song, "I predict a riot"

Your prediction of a riot may well come to pass. At the very least, there'll be lots of faff and fluster while the work coach goes to seek guidance from on high. Here's some more ammunition;

Personally, I wouldn't bother with a formal complaint over this cos you don't need the stress. Complaints to Jobcentreplus are hard work for little, if any, reward. However if you want to complain; as your friend's representative, you'll need written third party authority from your friend to act on his behalf.

 

Best wishes, Margaret.

Thanks Margaret.

 

Im determined that my friend will not get ripped off like he did years ago last time he signed on when he was sanctioned, won his appeal and then they closed his claim and refused to backdate the sanction etc. Basically it meant that he lost all faith in the system and has existed pennyless since then.

Im determined to get im back in the system and back to a postion where he can get a job :)

Also bear in mind that as an interested party and on a previous occasion been subject to a worker not correctly following the rules, you may wish to state that you want the interview held in private and recorded. Again special rules apply and this will need to be asked for in advance so that the interview room is prepared and available, this will save further delays.

Then you can use this information at a later date if it is needed.
