    • it will be mainly voters and the fact you have changed address on everything too. nothing you can do about it sadly ….   usually takes a month or two for things to settle themselves
    • I only just signed up to vote, I have never voted before, but I've never had a problem accessing my credit file in previous years, it's like it's just been deleted?    Here's a message from another credit check place I found.   I have just moved in the last month but my bank account, new address etc are all up to date and I literally called everyone when I moved, internet, electric, gas, mobile contract, bank, everyone on the day I moved here,   When trying to get my credit report I use my new and previous addresses.   Here's a message I got ...... Why have I been unable to access my Credit Report? When completing the authentication process for access to your credit report, you will have received one of the following in-product messages to indicate why you have not received access: Thin File This means there is currently not enough credit history information held in your TransUnion file for us to produce a credit report. You can find out more about how to build your credit history in our guides. Not Found If you have not been found by TransUnion, this does not necessarily mean you do not have enough credit history or that you have poor credit history. This simply means that with the details you have provided, TransUnion have been unable to accurately match you to a credit file. Check over the details you have entered and make sure all financial accounts are up to date. If you notice that your Date of Birth, Name or Address have been filled in incorrectly, you can update this information on your account and this will initiate a new search with TransUnion to locate your credit data. Please note, a new search will only be initiated if you change your Date of Birth, Name or Address. Therefore, if you have since updated your information with public bodies or your financial accounts to match your current account information, we will be unable to initiate a new search and you may need to close your account and re-register. Failed If you have failed the authentication process then unfortunately we have been unable to provide you with your credit report. As per TransUnion policy, we are only able to provide customers with two attempts to access their credit file data, after which they will be unable to access their data through our service or receive a TotallyMoney credit report.  
    • I was going to suggest cooperating with her over the letter copies so as to look good in court, but on further consideration BazzaS & SuperVillain are right.   However, to make it easy for the judge and to show her up in court I would tweak the letter and add that this is the third time you've asked so that the expert can be "jointly instructed" and you are anxious to move things on as the two of you are already beyond the court's deadline.    You are writing to her but in a certain sense you're writing "to" the judge and what you are writing needs to be concise and follow the court's instructions - unlike her gibberish.

Hi all ,


I have received a letter form the job centre saying they have information I was working while claiming unemployment & benefits.


They want me to give them wage slips pertaining to this " employment" , the only problem is I don`t have any wage slips as I was not working while claiming benefits . I was unemployed after redundancy , found a job & signed off & everything was normal but now this. I have absolutely no idea what is going on , I had a bad time with the job centre & became a pain to them when insisting on my rights regarding job search etc. etc. refusing them access & generally holding them to the letter of the law after reading advice on here, it definitely marked me out & I had some problems with the staff .

I was very glad to see the back of the JC , I will be working abroad for 6 weeks very soon & would like this cleared up . The letter [ imho ] reads like I am guilty , informing me that I have 14 days to reply & a decision will be made . I have no idea what this is about but I need advice on how to reply & how to proceed .


Thanks in advance

All you have to do is provide information regarding your new job and advise them that prior to this new job you were not working.


If they then come back with other information, then you can respond. It might just be a data error on some records that has been picked up.

We could do with some help from you.

I don't think providing information relating to your current job is necessary. It has nothing to do with them in so far as it does not involve them. You do have privacy rights.

As for the information they claim to have: You could write and say that the DWP and JCP hold records of the period during which you were unemployed and claiming unemployment benefits. You are not privy to any other information that they may or may not hold therefore can't comment on it or provide evidence for or against its veracity.

You might also inform them that you want them to regard your letter as a formal Subject Access Request (SAR). That you want them to provide you with a copy of all the information held by DWP and JCP, and any other organisation to whom they sub-contracted any dealings relating to you, both on hard paper and electronically, and including all records and notes of verbal communications. This to include the period from which you made your claim for unemployment benefit up to and including receipt by them of this letter.

If nothing else that should give them something to do to keep them busy for a while.

What part of the jobcentre is the letter from?


If it is from compliance it may be that they have received information from HMRC that payments have been made,

Thanks for all the reply's.



The letter came from Belfast but the return envelope is FAO the local job centre manager .



I wont be giving them any details of my current employment as it`s none of their business , they have provided no information, just assumptions & threats so I will take Lapsed advice.



It annoys me greatly I have to devote time to this nonsense & will also add that any further correspondence will be dealt with via my solicitor . I will of course pick a solicitor in Ireland where I shall be working & see what transpires .
