Forgive me if I seem a bit angry but I used to be a member here asking for advice on how to avoid a sanction from my JSA signing.

I got what I thought was great advice at the time.

I implemented that advice.

I got sanctioned.

Is there any way I can sue CAG for giving bad advice?

Reading around the threads now with the "benefit" of hindsight, It seems that most site team and contributors are actually on ESA and divorced from reality and the world of work. If I'd realized this I wouldn't have followed their advice.

I'm now left without money for 3 months.

Thanks a lot.

Do I have any recourse for suing you people?

I guess if you actually knew what you were talking about then you wouldn't actually be on benefits to start with.

My bad then. But you've really ****ed me over.

Who can I sue for bad advice please?

Well I'm sorry that you think that you have been so badly misled here.

 

Maybe you could point us to the thread where you received this bad advice and we could understand what has gone wrong.

 

As far as suing us, I don't think that there is anything that you can do. We make it very clear all over the forum that no one claims to be legally qualified here, we simply try to offer support and advice based on people's individual experience and we make it very clear that if you have any doubts then you should consult an insured professional – which we are not.

 

If you think that you want to take it up more formally than that, then you can email us on our admin email address – but as you can imagine we are unlikely to be very receptive to the idea of being sued by anybody.

 

We simply do our best.

 

Why don't you let us know little bit about the problem or point us to the thread

You have to remember that we're mostly people who have been through the benefits system and not people actually working within benefits.

 

There's no one you can sue. You were not forced to take the advice.

No but you Nystagmite, a professional player of the system to get every penny you think you are entitled to for a variety of self-diagnosed "conditions" should have known better

Please don't start flaming the forum and being disruptive. It won't help anybody.

 

Why don't you let us know what has happened. We may not be able to help but at least we can examine the mistakes that you say we have made.

 

Please don't put me in a position where I have to put you on moderation

Lots of people on benefits get sanctioned for the most mundane, lame reasons.......even when you wave a download of current law in a JC,s face to prove you are in the right you can still be sanctioned.

The good thing is everybody has the right of appeal 'within a set timescale'. Instead of complaining, get your skates on and appeal.

Sorry.

I've had a chance to cool off now.

I'm man enough to say when I'm wrong, so I apologise for ranting.

I realise people post here for the best intentions to help.

It just seems that certain posters are waging an ideological war against the fact they have to jump through ANY hoops to get free money from the tax-payers.

They seem so arrogant and dismissive of anyone who works for DWP.

They seem to feel they have a god-given right to tax-payers money.

They seem so intelligent but ultimately can't get a job themselves (by their own admission because they too are on ESA/JSA) yet seem to dish out advice as if they are Lording it over us Workoholics who haven't lapsed yet.

Such intelligence matched with such a lack of self-awareness I find really problematic.

But it's not for me to diagnose personality disorders, so I will limit myself to say I'm sorry BankFodder. I was out of order. I will think before posting again. Sorry.

I've removed the moderation.

I realise that it must be very distressing to be in your position.

I'm sorry.
