    • No it says the search was carried out on the 9th July.  Says it was a hard search that can impact your credit score and can be seen by other lenders.    
    • Package holiday firms should promptly issue refunds to customers whose holidays have been cancelled, even in spite of the “extraordinary pressures” they are facing during the coronavirus pandemic, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) warned on Friday.   The regulator noted that consumers have a statutory right to a full cash refund within 14 days of the termination of their package holiday, even if the reasons for the cancellation are “unavoidable and extraordinary.”   “We expect businesses to comply with these requirements where package holiday contracts are terminated due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Cecilia Parker Aranha of the CMA in an open letter to package travel sector.   “We are aware that many consumers have been promised full cash refunds, but these have yet to be paid,” she said.   https://uk.yahoo.com/finance/news/coronavirus-competition-and-markets-authority-package-holiday-refunds-100214568.html
    • that is not acknowledgement.   so what if moorcroft did a search. no-one bar you and they can see it anyway i bet the search was from before the time you updated the address too.   simply a trace to find your correct address to try and mug you blind   send the sb letter as advised.   dx    
    • All I put in letter was   Account Number   please be advised of my new address    my name or husband’s    no signature    I must admit apart from 2 of them writing back to acknowledge.  One of then NatWest I’ve heard from no one else.   Natwest did email to a old email address that we have access to but never use asking for us to reply confirming our address but we never replied.   Im just unsure why Moorcroft have done a credit search yesterday. 
    • you never ever ring a DCA nor email anyway no matter what you might think is a good reason   if the debt is SB'd then send cabot our SB letter from the debt collection section of our library.   dx       so you didnt follow the advice on your other thread from earlier this tear?

    • 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. looking for some advise. I have had the sheriff officer at my door today. I was out at work and my neighbour saw them. They asked who lived there (just moved in) and my name. She never told them anything and said no one new has moved in.

 

 

I have got married and they have my maiden name. Nothing has been put through my door and as far as they are concerned I'm no there. To be honest I don't know if it was the sheriff officer, but the only debt I left at my old address was my council tax. So I am putting 2 and 2 together.

 

 

Do you think they will come back? They don't know where I work and everything is under my married name anyway. Help

right so you don't know who called

the sheriffs office that could be chasing a CCJ as an HCEO

 

or 'a sheriff' officer chasing old ctax.

 

not in Scotland are you?

 

who told you it was a sheriff anyway? and how do they know?

I am in Scotland. No one told me, I am just guessing as that's the only debt I left at my old address. My neighbour said they had a letter with my maiden name on it.

Fair enough just wondered..of course your stance will increase the debt if it was a Bailiff with collection fees...and they will find you eventually and you will have to pay it.It would be a lot less stressful and cheaper to contact the Council and make an arrangement to pay...if it wasn't a Bailiff or connected to outstanding CTax.

Yeah I know. I'm just very embarrassed needing to call them. :-( I think I was hoping that because I have changed name and address (moved to a different council area) they wouldn't find me!

Yes and yes. Also the papers that they had was the wrong address. Same estate, just wrong address.

Oh well, hopefully they will send me a letter and I can arrange payments. Or I might just bite the bullet and phone the council to arrange payments. What's the least I can offer them?

moved to the dealing with debt in Scotland forum.

 

go ring the council

 

how much do you owe?

and when from.

 

the issue here is unless you get something moving FAST

they WILL arrest wages and bank accounts and take what they like when they like

 

go ring the council NOW.

 

there are no additional fees in Scotland.

1999!

 

so you've avoided this till now or is this other ctax sums added to it?

 

so its just one year that you didn't pay? 1999

 

Local authorities can apply for a summary warrant to collect outstanding monies from council tax up to 20 years after the amount has become due, and then have up to a further 20 years to collect thereafter.

No. I've been paying it at £40 per month. When I moved I stopped paying. The debt was over 9k. My ex left me with it all. It was in my name only 🙁 What if I just start saying it again, would this avoid any further action or will I need to phone them
