I still have 50k or so in my bank over there so can service the debt but its now looking like Il be staying in the UK and wont be able to continue the replayments at some point soon. I have moved in with my father and my wife and baby will soon be joining. What would be your advice? 
    • Hi Andyorch   Yes I do have address and contact details for ex business partner. Yes it was a Limited Company but I have not got a copy of Guarantor Agreement as it was done online.
    • Hi,    I recently have been trying to apply for a loan and have discovered I have a defaulted account with Three from 2016. After some confusion, it turns out that it is from when I was a guarantor on a phonebill for my ex-girlfriend 4 years ago. As far as I was aware, all payments were made and on time. I have contacted Three about this and they have stated that there aren't any payments to be made.    My issue is that I haven't received any emails, phonecalls or letters about the payments, ever. Yet it is still a defaulted account which is having a big impact on my credit score.    Am I still at fault, as I haven't had any contact about the payments being late or owed? Is there any way to get this removed?    Any help or advice would be much appreciated. 
    • Update   Never had a reply to the cca request sent start March   Received 2 letters in last 2 weeks from Intrum: 1) a legal dept letter - offering 30% discount off balance 2) an annual statement - showing no transactions!  
    • Hello everyone, In January 2020 I was caught with a 11-15 years Oyster card on the bus, which was my cousins and it was taken.    After I received a letter by post asking for my personal info. and the possibility to deny or accept the offence and give reasons to explain so. I then answered only by giving my personal info. and  "I would be grateful for any opportunity to avoid prosecution." I didn't gave any explanations. I came here in September 2019 and I wasn't aware of such importance in the matter otherwise I would have never have done such a stupid thing.  I have never experienced something like this and I am very scared since I am here on a student visa and I am afraid that a criminal record will impact negatively my visa.    Today I received the letters I have attached.   Reading in this forums other cases like mine, I wanted some help on how to ask an Out of court settlement, if this is possible, and if not how to write a plea that helps me not take a criminal record.        20200706_164643.pdf

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

"a shop that sells things more cheaply because it sells them directly from the company that made them"

 

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/factory-shop

 

Does a shop have any accountability for making a claim to be a factory shop,when it might not be?

I'm sorry, I haven't a clue what you are meaning. Could you flesh it out?

I was in a shop a while ago that claimed to be a 'Factory Shop'. However, it was extremely expensive, when by definition a factory shop should be cheaper than normal. This is misleading and I wondered if there was any accountability?

It really depends on the goods sold in the shop. High end factory shops sell very expensive goods and vice versa, The Original Factory Shop sells cheaper goods.

 

I suppose it's all in the eye of the beholder.

 

All shops need to make a profit whereas online shops will be able to sell the same thing far cheaper as they have fewer overheads.

 

As for accountabilty, I doubt it.

Were the goods actually more expensive than normal? Or just not as discounted as you would have thought?

all shops are effectively factory shops as you dont buy your goods from the factory as a consumer.

It is a meaningless phrase.

 

 

 

If I ran a factory making shoes I may well have a factory outlet associated to my factory because that way I make a bigger profit on the goods I sell directly.

 

 

I wont sell them much cheaper or the shoe shops would never buy my goods as they know they couldnt sell them in competition to my prices and I would lose most of my business.

Thanks interesting and as I'd expect really. It is misleading but its actually meaningless.
