    • Hi All,   To give a brief summary of the drama, I have 2 old student loans taken out /signed for on 27/02/96 and 17/07/96. Both totalling just over 3k.  Some years deferred, some years didn't and paid the minimum payment. Moved around a great deal and lost contact. The last time I deferred and filled the D10 form in was 19/08/13 with SLC.   Then Erudio took over and I received their Notice Of Assignment on 02/04/14. Ignored everything after this. No contact, no payments, nothing.   Then came Dryden Fairfax who's letters I ignored thinking it was just a DCA.   Then a court claim came on 03/06/2019 which made me sit up a little! I had a read up and came to the conclusion the debt must be SB'd so I submitted my defence within the time limit. My defence was mainly on SB grounds and that I had no dealings nor signed any paperwork with Erudio. The total amount claimed was £4969.25. The court confirmed they had received my defence.   I have checked on the MOC website and the defence submission by myself was the last activity.    2 YEARS LATER! (07/21)I receive another letter from Drydenfairfax. They claim in a nutshell that my limitation defence had no merit. This is due to the deferment being August 2013 and the claim was issued on 03/06/2019.  They state that they require payment by Aug 2nd or arrange a payment plan which may be formalised by means of a tomlin order.   They then go on to state that they will have no alternative but to apply to the court to lift the stay on the proceedings without further notice. They say that such an application will include an application for summary judgment. Their letter included the D10 deferment from Aug2013, my two credit agreements (both of which are illegible and have amendments to my name. One of which is addressed to the college). And their notice of assignment letter.   So I'm presuming that the claim is stayed by the court as nothing has happened.   I have no searches or judgments on my credit report. It's squeaky clean!   I'm just really wondering where to go next with this? My thoughts are just to wait for any letters. Ignore everything from DrydenFairfax and just submit another defence of statute barred if I receive anything else from the court, as this looks like it was accepted first time round. Surely it must be quite difficult to get a stay lifted too. I'm assuming too that the debt was statute barred or if the claim date has stopped the clock. If so, what about the two years of no contact by Fairfax?   Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks
    • Hi hope you can help i sold a couple of hard drives in single auctions via ebay value £48 booked delivery via ebays packlink sent hermes, anyway within an hour of it being delivered i got the following message from the buyer.    Parcel arrived but is empty. I have not opened it but I can tell there is no hard drive in there it is light as a feather. Do you want me to open the box before I request refund?   I have spoken to ebay and nothing i can really do about it so he has opened a return i made him send me the following statement as i will be taking action.   (his name and address.) The parcel you sent me is I think empty or does not contain a hard drive. It only weight just over 100 grammes do cannot contain a hard drive, which was expected. For this reason I am processing a refund.   Anyway i filed with packlink yesterday lots of emails back and forth there reply.   With this email we confirm to have opened a formal investigation for tampering/missing content/theft. With the data you provided to us, the carrier will open an investigation and confirm the outcome to us. Take into account that this type investigation requires the coordination of different participants involved (driver, depot, warehouse, carrier's local offices), so it might be necessary to wait for a response from the different parties involved, before being able to provide you with an answer.     Now having read various accounts of packlink i do not hold out much luck of anything positive coming from it what next steps should i take is this worth pursuing what should i do next.   Thank you for taking the time to read i also attach a photo he sent me.   back1-converted.pdf

    • Indeed. My employer is giving full pay precisely because we don't want to risk anyone saying they haven't been pinged, because they know they'll then  lose out on money.   So far, people have been so tired from staying home on furlough, they are desperate to get back to work, So no widescale abuse. We do have policies we can enact if someone is suspiciously multi-pinged... but they are the same as if someone was swinging the lead pre-covid. No change except in the type of illness.   What matters here is essentially "not killing people." A majority of employees are honest, want to see the employer survive, and so act decently. There's always a few bad apples, but there are in anything.

Yes, unless it has been banned by UK authorities and is used solely for self defence.

 

I seem to remember other defence sprays that are available.

We could do with some help from you.

i don't believe any sprays can be termed 'legal', I think the only legal defence at the moment is a rape alarm.

 

Having said that, I don't suppose someone who is attempting to mug or rob you will make a report should they get any eyeful from a pepper spray.

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum

 

Would this be legal to carry in the UK ? It sprays out a harmless red gel that stains anyone it hits for about 5 days.

 

It will likely hinge on if the gel and its stain is considered noxious. The gel isn't completely harmless if it stains .... (Damage to clothing is, strictly speaking, "harm", just not "bodily harm"!)

Back on topic, if I carry hair spray in my shoulder bag, and I have to defend my self from a physical attack, I'm sure I could use it to defend my self..

 

Depends if it was reasonable force...

If it's a robber or mugger, any force is reasonable force no matter how heavy.

 

Not true. You can't stab or shoot a mugger for example.

 

Likewise with a burglar. Do you not remember the Tony Martin case?

It's always astonished me that someone would choose to try to rob a farm - they're about the only places in the UK where you're likely to find a legally owned firearm, hundreds of acres of empty space and access to heavy plant machinery...

 

Mind you, our border collie is an excellent deterrent for anyone trying to get onto our farm...

The best way to get the correct advice is to ask your local constabulary, the Farb Gels were legal to carry in Hants, then the firearms laws changed and they weren't, however it is down to your local constabulary to decide.

 

Drop them an email or tweet.

OK, didn't realise we were splitting hairs, speak to your local constabulary for advice, tell them what it is you want clarification on. They will then tell you whether you can, or can't.

Back on topic, if I carry hair spray in my shoulder bag, and I have to defend my self from a physical attack, I'm sure I could use it to defend my self..

 

No doubt, but hair spray isn't within the definition of a weapon so the question of whether it is prohibited under the Firearms Act to possess hair spray doesn't arise.

 

Whether rupertbear's gel spray is within the definition in the Firearms Act is less clear cut. I don't know the answer, but bear in mind that the legal question isn't whether you can use it to defend yourself but whether it's legal to possess it. Anything that is "designed or adapted for the discharge of any noxious liquid, gas or other thing" can as easily be used to rob/mug/assault someone as it can be to defend yourself. So rupertbear is well advised to check out whether it's legal because if found with it by police could be charged with possessing an illegal weapon if it isn't legal.
