    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry. 
    • The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many countries into recession - but what exactly is it and how could it affect you? View the full article
    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • 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

Hi everyone,

 

I've tried, and failed so many times to put together meaningful documents to send to many banks over my lending past

- so I approached The Claims Guys bacause of their offer:

 

They will contact everyone on my behalf to see if I had PPI, and then I can go ahead and claim myself.

 

I haven't yet sent back the paperwork and of course the emails, texts and phonecalls are starting to ramp up.

 

Has anyone used this facility?

 

Is there any persuasive technique someone can apply for me to just go ahead and do all of this myself?

I did start, but got stuck on my first bank and just didn't carry on.

 

Cheers

Done it myself. Let them do the donkeywork obtain account no's etc then tell them when they phone you're doing it yourself. They stop mithering then.

The claims guys do it for you. Then you ditch them with all the account numbers in hand. Worked for me.

Well, that's a lot of SARs to send and I could do with as little faffing about as possible.

 

Remember, I am unlikely to continue with them managing the claim, just getting the information for me.

Hope you have not divulged your bank account details...as they will take their fees whether they or you are successful

I can scarcely imagine that it's that easy and that the claims company will allow you to get away with it.

 

In any event, although I would not recommend anybody going with this company – The Claims Guys – or any other claims management company for that matter, I don't see any point in essentially ripping them off.

 

PPI claims are not hugely complicated although sometimes they need a bit more persistence than usual. It's a hassle, but much better to keep the extra money for yourself then give 25% or more to claims management companies.

 

I've looked at The Claims Guy's TNCs in respect of the checks and I must say that it seems a bit woolly as to what your rights are once you have had the free check.

 

I wonder what information they actually release to you if they decide that you have had PPI. It may be that they simply say that you have had it that they don't give you any details and that effectively means that you are pretty well back to zero and still have to do all the spadework.

you need to be aware there are loads o threads here whereby the claims guys latterly chase fees as soon as someone coughs up.

you need to specially in writing tell any bank that you try and reclaim from that the claims guys have not been appointed as your agent and should not be told of any successful outcomes

 

 

as when they send the sar's or make enquiries for you

they put an interest marker on the relevant PPI accounts

Thanks all for your replies. Sounds like the best option is to just not use them as there's too many opportunities where they can either go ahead and start the claims process, or attempt to claim a fee. At least in contacting them it did give me the opportunity to go through my account and address information so I do essentially have the list of banks I'll need to get in touch with.
