    • hi all. bit of advice please. I had a Three contract up until November last year. At £11pcm for 24mths. Paid every month on time via their online portal. When I ported over, I received a letter from Three thanking me for being a customer blah blah blah.. It also said IF I owed anything a final bill will be sent. No final bill ever received - I get a phone call around the first week in December form an Indian sounding man who was extremly difficult to understand. Said he was calling from Three, and wanted me to confirm my details - something of which I didnt as something didnt sit right. He said I could log into my account and review my bill as I owed money and then hung up. After the call I thought I'd best log into my account just in case.  Couldnt log in. Account access denied. Logged on to chat - they said as I ported over and I was no longer a customer my access was suspended. Couple of weeks later I had another call from a local area number and answered again it was some Indian guy telling me I owed money, wanting me to confirm details. I refused and he said details will be sent out to me to my email on account and my home address as it was important. Once again nothing.. 15th Dec I received an email from PastDue in my name RE Three. Email stated they were contacting me about Three an I should receive a letter soon regards to this matter. Says about visiting their website.  22nd Jan another email form Pastdue. Stating they have yet to receive a response to the letter, and they had already sent me an email about this. We will continue to contact you until this matter is resolved. Again asks me to login. 23rd Jan letter received dated 13th Jan. Titled "We are here to help keep your Three Services"  Claiming I owed "Airetime Balance £201.43" and contract period was 26/11/2019 to 25/11/2020 States "We have been appointed by Three to recover the amount of £201.43. If you pay this amount in full Three may be able to waive the cancellation fee and reconnect their service for you" - what cancellation fee / re connection??? I ended the contract giving the 30days notice and paying the last bill.. Then the normal crap about its important to pay. If I'm experiencing difficulties etc. Now both December and  January Credit reports from ClearScore, Credit Karma, Credit Expert, Totally Money and Equifax all show Three as Closed and balance as Zero. (Date Satisfied /closed 17th Nov, bal 0, last updated 30th Nov) I've had nothing from Three. As far as I'm concerned I owe nothing as no final bill and no access to the portal. Should I email PastDue and do a prove it & attach proof of Credit Reports being £0 or do I do something else?  
    • Hi she did say she was cancelling and returned the equipment. It looks like they put her on a rolling contract for 24 months when she phoned before trying to reduce her payments as they kept going up. I know Sky haven't done that to me. She didn't see that email as she's had lots of stressful situations. No.letter in post or when she originally phoned about reducing her bill well over £100 they didn't tell her about this contract. Like you say there should be recordings. BT mobile contract is separate to broadband and the cancellation fee is for the broadband. They have blocked her mobile so she can't use it and that is a contract. She is phoning CAB in the morning and checking through her paperwork. I'm quite happy with Sky as they tell you upfront what is happening and have never rolled over my contract. Thanks for taking time to reply it is much appreciated. 
    • I've sent an email to a press contact And one to a journalist at the BBC!

    • I sent in the bailiffs to the BBC. They collected £350. It made me smile.

    • 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!

I was/is on SEETEC, but my doctor told them that I was travel sick, they've given me 3 sets of tablets to help me. I do 9-5 job search which is 5 days a week, Thursday and Friday I go to a city 45 minutes away via bus.

They knew I was travel sick, but ignored the doctor's note, I wasn't well.

On Monday I was ill and kept retching, I told the receptionist that I felt ill but had to wait for the manager.

Well, she came back and told me I had to stay at tehe centre till 5pm, it was 12.30 and my stomach wa shurting and I felt sick. So I walked out and had a doctor's appt and he gave me the 7 day sick not which has ran out.

 

Because I have now got the month long one I can sign off JSA and onto ESA..

I'll ring them on Monday, but I don't understand if I have to continue with the job search or ring SEETEC to tell them I won't be in. I will on Monday as they need a copy of my sick note.

 

Can anyone help me? The doctor wrote down anxiety as cause for me being off sick. He also said this place is stressing me out and making me ill.

I would gladly get myself a volunteering placement myself.

While on ESA you don't have to look for work. Also, you do not have to participate in the Work Programme unless you have an assessment and are placed in the Work Related Activity Group. If you only anticipate being on ESA for a month, that's not likely to happen.

Well, if your doctor is prepared to issue sick notes then you can remain on ESA until you have your Work Capability Assessment. After that, continuing to claim ESA will depend of the result of the assessment.

If your doctor says you are not fit for work then you should be able to claim ESA. As to PIP, you would need to meet the conditions for that separately - it is not related to ESA. Information on PIP, including the descriptors, can be found here.

To be entitled to PIP the condition must have existed for three months prior to the date you claim, and must be expected to last at least another nine months.

Well the doctor thinks that my stress is related to what SEETEC is doing to me. But I've only been disgnosed with this for about a month or so. I estamate the date was around 20-30th of October. I saw a doctor who gave me a sugggestive sick note on the 30th which SEETEC ignored. Yesterday my doctor said they shouldn't have done that.

To claim PIP, because it's a recent thing, they may ask that you provide evidence to prove it's an ongoing thing that will last for at least another 9 months. You'd have to score at least 8 point on the daily living or moving around parts to get anything.

I'll have to ring them on Monday because I don't know if I can get ESA even if I do have a sick note. The doctor told me I am not fit for work. My mum is wondering if I can get PIP for anxiety.

 

I claimed ESA for a year with anxiety… was also allowed to do a small part time job of a few hours a week… I think you can do voluntary work, too.

 

My GP gave me 3 monthly sick notes.

 

Not sure about PIP, though.

My brother has a 6 month sick note and still volunteers at the place he has been doing for 5 years. He has Hearchsprungs desease (a bowel dease). But doesn't claim PIP.

I'll just stay with ESA, I got a letter to see my adviser on Monday, don't know whether this is about the 7 days sick not or not, but I'll bring the one month sick note too.

I just hope she doesn't have a go at me for not going to SEETEC, she wanted to know how my parents are helping me get into work.

And if my Dad could of drove me to the placement place, he's retired but has to drive my nephew to school.

Yes, you can work while claiming ESA - it's called "Permitted Work" and there are limits to the number of hours you're allowed to do. It's also permitted to volunteer, although obviously you should not be doing anything that your condition would affect, if you see what I mean.

 

PIP is paid based on meeting the appropriate descriptors, and you can receive it whether or not you are working.

I had an appointment at the Job Centre, I had been sanctioned but because I have now signed off onto ESA I don't get next week's pay.

I have claimed ESA now, but I don't know when to expect my first payment. And my adviser said 'I haven't seen you for long, but from what I see, you are creating obticles to prevent you from working' which is not true. I wanted to volounteer. She also said that after claiming ESA and if I ever go back to JSA I should expect to go back to SEETEC!'

They are creating this stress for me and I shall not go back, I will get myself a placement of my own.

 

 

If there is any more help you can give, please say so. Because I've never claimed ESA or know the rules.
