    • This is on behalf of my brother in law, a plumber.    He is currently taking his ex employer to tribunal (after they reduced his wages without telling him, and change of contract over hours). As such he left the company and started working privately.   His ex-employer found out that he was using the same plumbers merchants as them and somehow persuaded them to provide them with copies of his invoices (that he has made himself since leaving). We assume they were trying to find evidence that he was 'stealing customers'.  He only found this out after the ex-employees solicitors sent a photo of these invoices to him as part of the bundle! (they took a photograph of the invoices on the plumbing merchants desk (the photo itself also had the date and time on it!)   I am automatically assuming that the plumbers merchant in question is in breach of the data protection act,  I am also assuming, but would like clarity that the ex-employer is also in breach, not sure if the solicitor is also as they were not aware of how it was obtained, although it has since been pointed out to them.  I should also add that I am not 100% sure if the customers details were on the invoice ( as they would have been delivered to their location).   It should also be noted that he also requested a Subject Access Request (in order help track his time sheets for the last year (they were not given duplicates)| and to find out how/ who  authorised the change to his salary).  The Ex-employer stated he was  unable to supply this in the standard time period and also missed the extended three month period, and I believe a complaint was made under GDPR about this, don't think anything was done though).   Any thoughts on this.  
    • Ok my managers know of my asthma. Though never had an asthma attack at work like that. Asthma has got worse - probably had covid a few days before 1st lockdown. No test centres for 40 plus miles at the time.    I have messaged my union rep - also an employee at the store. She is going to put this as a incident and look at any risk assessments done. Plus asked for colleagues that witnessed/helped me during the attack to get their side of the story. As  I was in shock and not fully understanding what was going on.   The refit has been a bit of a shambles imo. No clear plans so literally some rooms needed to be emptied immediately when contractors were told they are there to do the floor, paint the walls etc.  We were told to empty lockers. Then they were taken away with no replacement. Staff not happy with leaving personal stuff in offices. 
    • The country's inability to export its grain has led to food prices rising around the world.View the full article
    • Lots of uncertainties about whether to contact Horizon for an sar or Tesco.    My suggestion to contact Tesco was after finding out if the original PCN was non compliant.  Most of the ones I have checked in the past have been for several different reasons. That means that the liability for the alleged debt cannot be transferred to the keeper.   Once it is confirmed that the PCN is non compliant the OP can write to Tesco as the keeper pointing out that as the keeper he has no responsibility for the debt and has been denied the facility of appealing to POPLA because of the NTK not being received  at all. POPLA may well have cancelled on appeal because of no keeper liability.    In addition  the stoppage in the car park was for less than the consideration period. The keeper could then add if it was true, that the driver was an infrequent patron of this particular car park and the keeper will ensure that a similar occurrence does not happen in the future.   One could point out that if the camera operator had thought that they had not observed any children in the car, from the Court's point of view they would have expected the operator to have attempted to mitigate the situation by explaining to the driver that they should either move the car to avoid a ticket or explain where the children were [ref. Jopson v Homeguard].   Then perhaps it could have  been explained that the wife and children were dropped off at the entrance or the children and their mother were already in the store and the driver was there to collect them.   [They should also have issued a windscreen ticket since they were in the vicinity but of course that would have meant that they would have had to wait several weeks longer to be paid. It is a practice frowned upon but overused by greedy  car parking companies].   The above paragraph obviates the need to  admit parking wrongly and suggesting possible  reasons for parking there without admitting that either scenario actually happened.      
    • Hey everyone I rented some rackspace from a company on a month to month contract but the customer support has been quite poor of late, my services went offline a few times and they advised my servers had gone over the allowed power limit on my account and required an upgrade which I agreed to but I had enough of the reply times taking hours, never any answer on the phones when I needed support I requested to cancel my services on the renewal date, they advise in their terms of service that if there is a open invoice this must be paid before they will allow collection of your hardware and if not paid within a set time the hardware becomes theirs and can be sold off, reused by them ect I have noticed in their terms of service that it does not state at any point the amount of time before the due date the new invoice will be created which I feel should be a important part of any contract on a monthly billing they will pre advise you of the amount of time before the payment is due when they will invoice you   I was also meant to receive IPv6 addresses as part of my package but never had these although I had requested these many times they advised they were not available but are mentioned as part of my overall package on my invoices     They are asking for nearly £700 payment before they will even discuss allowing anyone to collect my hardware (worth about £5000 in total) and if I do not pay this within a set time they will take ownership of all my servers and use or sell them   Thanks   Update I had advised them I will be hiring a man and van service to collect my hardware, they have suddenly advised that I cannot do this and must use a certain type of company who specialist in server transport. I do not feel this is fair as it is my hardware, fully owned and paid for my me but start trying to set out new rules that have never been made aware of until today after making my request to cancel.

Hi,

 

Any advice help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated :)

 

I had a student loan for £1,500 back in 1994 - when I finished Uni & started working I contacted the student loan company at least 20 times both via telephone & letter as I was worried that if I didn't start to repay they would want a big lump sum at a time when I couldn't afford to pay.

 

I was told over the phone everytime I called that I wasn't in "the system" and to call back and they would try to locate my account. This went on for months & in the end the advisor on the phone asked me to write in with all my details & they would contact me once they had found my details, so I did.

 

I never heard a word and have always been in the electoral register so easy to find.

 

Today - I've arrived home from work to find 2 letters - both from DCA's. The first says they've passed my account on to a second one and the second one is asking me to start making repayments on a debt of over £5K.

 

Whilst I'm not averse to paying the original £1.5k loan back - I'm not going to pay for interest since they haven't bothered to contact me in 22 years.

 

Is this debt stature barred by now?

 

My feeling is to just ignore them but any advice it help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks :)

Yes those old student loans pre 1998 are subject to limitations act, so are statute barred. That would only stop being the case, had you deferred in writing each year since or made payments, meaning that 6 years had not passed without acknowledgement or payment.

 

Which DCA is writing to you ?

 

I ask, as it might inform whether to ignore or write back advising that the debt is statute barred.

 

It is an unenforceable debt you don't have to pay, but some DCA's are silly enough to issue court claims after hassling people, hoping for a default judgement.

Hey Uncle Buck,

 

The first was from Erudio and the second one was from capquest.

 

It's v odd that I've had 2 letters delivered on the same day from both agencies - don't you think?

right

you need to get yourself upto speed dear boy.

 

 

Erudio and capquest are the same people

both owned by Arrows group.

 

they were sold lots of the old style mortgage loans a few years back.

 

now and i'll be honest here, typically they don't chase the ones that are statute barred.

 

so you need to do a bit of digging here.

 

when was the last time you deferred the loan please?

[by actually sending back the SLC form]

and when was the last time that you wrote to them regarding this debt?

 

then we can move this fwd properly.

Hey dx,

 

I concur - I do indeed need to get myself up to speed. I'm a dear girl btw :)

 

I've never deferred the loan - I've never even been contacted regarding it until today.

 

I've never heard from anyone or talked to anyone regarding it in 22 years.

 

As I've said - I contacted the SLA sat least 20 times 22 years ago & they couldn't find my "account".

 

I'm surprised to even hear about it after all this time.

 

Are they trying it?

 

:) xx

 

Just to be clear did - I've never had any contact from them before today. So there ha,s been no contact from me whatsoever

I would tend to write back just saying that this relates to a student loan arranged back in 1994 for which you have had no contact with Student Loans or any other company since. That because it relates to an old style pre 1998 loan, that it is subject to limitations and as it is statute barred, you will not enter in further correspondence regarding it. Ask them to confirm in writing that they will not contact you again.

We could do with some help from you.

Hi,

 

I didn't write back and now have received another letter.

 

Do I have to write back or can I just ignore the letters?

 

 

The last one was sent in August and nothing since.

 

 

They can't actually take me to court or anything can they?
