    • I am working through my defence and looking at the statements amount and the default notice the amounts are different amounts.   As I put earlier the paperwork they sent through is the same as before so no IP address on the CCA or the terms .   Have they fulfilled their part?   I did have ROP to start with along with the Identity theft cover they recommended that was quickly stopped after I had paid for it. They did refund the ROP interest later but not what I had paid, and I have been self employed all the time so I wouldn't of been able to claim at all.   Thanks   JJ
    • I asked Schipoo to post this but I'm working on a further draft right now ............   ........... which I'll post later.
    • hope these worked Doc1.pdf tinywow_from_word_2440141.pdf
    • Ok, my final draft…..   I would like to appeal the decision to strike out the tribunal below.   I sent my objection to strike out application to HMRC on 17th March 2022 (copy attached), Being an unrepresented tax payer I considered this was the right course of action, and the HMRC litigator (who was aware of my unrepresented status) did not advise me to send it to the Tribunal.    I was approached by Maxwell Accountancy specifically Alan Maxwell,  via a work colleague, to make a claim for expenses. They told me it would cover 3 tax years and was asked to call HMRC to open up years 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20. I called into HMRC on 24.2.2020 to do so which are confirmed in the notes on my SAR. When Sandra Patrick from HMRC wrote to me on 23.2.2021 to ask for EIS certificates I had no idea what she was talking about.  I was then advised that FTR Ltd had claimed for EIS relief for 3 investments.  I did not give Fast Tax Rebates Ltd any such authority to carry out any work on my behalf.  I had no contact from FTR Ltd whatsoever. The suggests to me that Alan Maxwell passed on my information onto a third party without my knowledge or agreement.    The funds were requested to be sent to a nominated bank account given by FTR Ltd in a bank account in their name, I didn’t authorise them to do that, and i did not sign any tax returns or authority to receive any money on monies on behalf. subsequently, I found out 12 months later that I only received 1 third of the full amount paid out to FTR Ltd by HMRC.   My earnings in those 3 tax years wasn’t enough to justify making the investments FTR Ltd say I made.  The Ltd Co they say I invested in has the same director as FTR Ltd.  What was it that prompted HMRC to investigate my case?  Was it because the officer thought that the amount of investment outweighed what was possible on my salary?      I did not see, review or sign any form for any claim with Alan Maxwell of Maxwells Accountancy. Nor did I see any return from HMRC to say I had claimed to having made any investment under the EIS.  Nor did I see what was claimed by FTR Ltd.  The loss sustained by HMRC was brought about by FTR Ltd and they were facilitated by HMRC’s policy of pay now and check later.     I have recently learned of UK Statutory Instrument 2003, No. 282, PART 3, Regulation 8 - any information delivered by an approved method of electronic communications on behalf of any person shall be deemed to have been delivered by him unless he proves that it was delivered without knowledge or connivance. I had absolute no knowledge that fraudulent claim was being made by a third party receiving repayment of whom I had no knowledge.    The reasoning to overturn the closure notices dated 23.2.2021, refer to Section 8 of the taxes management Act 1970, and that the returns were not submitted in accordance with that provision. Therefore HMRC are not able to open an enquiry under section 9A TMA 1970, and by extension issue a Closure Notice under Section 28A TMA 1970.   There has been some very recent Tribunal Rulings which are very similar to my case, they refer to the same scam, and these were not Struck Out.  These are McCumiskey V HMRC on 12th April 2022 and Huntly V HMRC on 22nd April 2022.  In the latter Huntly was given permission to join 9 others in a Group Litigation being handled by a tax advisory firm. The McCumiskey decision shows that there is a reasonable prospect of success, and that my case is almost synonymous with theirs. This is in terms of the agency aspect, and that the agent that completed the returns was not actually engaged by me.    The amount of people who have now been affected by an EIS type fraud is prolific and I have been told that 1 officer has oversight of over 200 of these cases. Indeed there are other cases where they have not been struck out and have been successful in getting to Tribunal.

Apparently the ransom demander is rumored to have rung Jeremy Hunt and said:

'$300 dollars or I'll bring the NHS to its knees'

 

Hunt is rumored to have retorted:

'You are just showing off and trying to make me look bad - I've been trying to bring the NHS to its knees for years'

He continued:

'Anyway, no way I'm investing that much in the NHS - go for it (thinking Win Win)

NHS cyber attack: Live updates as 16 hospital trusts hit across the country causing chaos for patients

 

The NHS has been reportedly hit by a 'cyber attack' today - affecting hospitals across the country and causing chaos for patients.

 

Reports are coming in that people expecting to see doctors and nurses - and in some cases undergo operations - are being turned away as health agencies try to get control of a developing situation.

 

Hospitals are reported to be diverting emergency operations - and services are severely disrupted the length of the UK.

 

Initial reports describe the situation as a 'large-scale attack'.

'At this stage we do not have any evidence that patient data has been accessed. We will continue to work with affected organisations to confirm this'

hopefully this is still, and will be, the case. ie no patient data accessed

Hmm win xp is still used by many large organisations due to compatibility issues...

 

Spoke to our it team recently and they said we were safe as these sort of viruses need administration rights on a computer...

 

I wrote a basic program in 5 min that didn't need administration rights and still had same effects - they were not impressed...

 

Wasn't perfect but it worked...

 

P.s. it basically rar'd the files with a password that was 3x randomly generated numbers 4 digit longs times each other.

 

It then pinged a server 3 times using the 3 numbers as the ping size

 

Added a text document to the startup folder

 

Then deleted the un rar'd files and itself

 

Just thought I'd add incase anyone got curious - it works on xp can't say it would work on anything newer

depends on attachment and script security - these aren't any sort of buffer overflow errors.

 

What would you prefer the NHS spent its reducing budget (in real terms per patient) IT or medicine?

 

So much for the effectiveness of the snoopers charter and GCHQ spying on all the nations citizens - they cant even stop or intercept this.

 

I think May should be required to answer why.

http://www.lincolnshirelive.co.uk/mass-cancellation-of-appointments-at-lincolnshire-hospitals-after-cyber-attack/story-30329359-detail/story.html

 

 

 

Weekend appointments at hospitals across Lincolnshire have been cancelled after a large-scale cyber-attack brought the NHS to its knees.

 

Phone lines and computer systems are down at Lincoln County Hospital, Boston Pilgrim Hospital and Grantham and District Hospital after the ransom-ware attack was launched on Friday afternoon.

 

NHS England has confirmed 16 of its organisations have been affected, with thousands of staff locked out of their equipment.

 

Now, United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust has confirmed it is cancelling all outpatient, endoscopy, cardiology and radiology appointments scheduled for this weekend.

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/may/13/nhs-workers-and-patients-on-how-cyber-attack-has-affected-them

 

 

Theresa, 44, a breast cancer patient from Lincolnshire

 

 

 

I was halfway through my chemotherapy infusion when the attack happened. The treatment finished without a hitch, but I then had to wait for a couple of hours for my medications to take home. That’s because all drugs have to be checked against prescriptions, and they are all computerised. The hospital pharmacists worked quickly to produce paper copies, but it still took a while. The horrible side-effects (nausea, exhaustion, dizziness) kicked in while I was stuck in rush-hour traffic coming home. Fortunately, I wasn’t driving.

 

There were other patients in the ward waiting to start their chemo whose drugs had been delivered but again couldn’t be checked, so administration was delayed. In some cases treatment had to be postponed entirely for another day. The oncology nurses and the hospital staff were brilliant throughout, reassuring patients and doing their best in difficult circumstances. They were also deeply apologetic, frustrated that they couldn’t do their job, and angry that such an act had put patients treatment – and lives – at risk.

 

 

 

Claims that patient care has been unaffected are dismissed by doctors, nurses, pharmacists and patients

 

Are they likely to find the person(s) who did this? I hope so, and I hope any deaths due to this is laid at their door with at the very least, manslaughter charges.

They might find out where the people who did this come from. It might not be organised crime, but a 14 year old boy sat in a bedroom anywhere in the world. Some of the most serious hacking has been done by teenagers from the UK.

 

As for the NHS they opted not to pay Microsoft for upgrades to their software which might have prevented this hack, if the latest updates were installed.

it seems to be big one! current 'all you need to know' info re.

'The ( 'stolen' NSA powered) WannaCrypt ransomware worm, aka WanaCrypt or Wcry, today exploded across 74 countries, infecting hospitals, businesses including Fedex, rail stations, universities, at least one national telco, and more organizations. In response, Microsoft has released emergency security patches to defend against the malware for unsupported versions of Windows, such as XP and Server 2003, as well as modern builds...'

detailed reports say temporary stop,

so the malware was further controlled

which indicates an organised attack - not a prank

 

 

and the NHS had little choice not to upgrade their systems - no money. no staff

The honest reality is that in a very interconnected world there is not much a government can do, unless it passes legislation that requires a minimum level of internet security protection within public bodies and companies that are strategically important to the UK. The government would then update the minimum requirements regularly and it would be a legal requirement to update security wiithin a certain period of time.

 

Even then, the hackers are probably miles ahead of the latest internet security and that requires international internet Police to monitor what is going on.

 

I am waiting for the day, when major Banks have been hacked and accounts either have zero balances or everyone is given a million. It is going to happen at some point. I just hope they go for the give everyone a million option.

Yes unc, but that this IS the sort of worldwide threat that is at the very 'schoolboy' end of achievability really does make these claims justifying the snoopers charter seem hogwash.

 

The bitcoin wallets are apparently filling up.

 

Is this all new and unexpected by those who should know - like GCHQ and Amber Rudd?

Absolutely not

 

http://privacy-pc.com/articles/ransomware-chronicle.html

 

 

Ransomware has been since the late 80's, I vaguely remember this sort of thing happening many years ago to computers. Who remembers the blaster virus - which is still around - try installing an early release of xp and see how long it lasts once connected to the internet

 

 

So Amber Rudd should be required to explain why all this money spent on GCHQ and all the erosion of privacy has not prevented even so basic an issue, let alone claimed interference in elections.

 

Less time and effort spent spying on UK citizens, just in case they might make a political statement, and more addressing actual issues which affect those citizens and core UK businesses is required it seems to me.
