    • sorry but that letter needs to be much much better. you need to express that it was a stilly youthful mistake trying to be the big man and jumping the turnstile to look big infront of your peers. TfL prosecutors are on the email address on their first letter. get the court form sent back to the court , (but copy it first) stating you plead guilty and wish to attend to address the judge in person face to face to show your genuine remorse for your stupid youthful exuberance.      
    • I thought I should send the begging letter to the prosecutor. Does the hearing means the time I need to send back by? If so, it’s June 5  I plan to send the new begging letter as following, can I ask for some suggestions? Dear Investigator/Prosecutor,  Thank you for your reply. I deeply regret my actions and the inconvenience they have caused.  I’m extremely remorseful for my crime. and regret it everyday. I often ask myself ‘’how can I do that thing just because I felt it is interesting. There are a lot of crimes in the world, but feeling it’s interesting is certainly not a reason to crime. I should not crime with any reason.’’ I think about these things every day, and I understand that I can’t blame anyone but myself.  I thanks to the staff who stopped me, as this is a valuable lesson in my life. I told myself that I should never ever repeat such a thing again, and never ever do anything which is possible to be in breach of any law. As a result, I carefully tap my oyster card every time before I enter the station now. I remind myself that I did a wrong thing before, and I should never let it happen again.  Although my monthly travel expenses do not warrant a season ticket, but I just renew my season ticket (please see the attachment). I understand that a crime cannot be truly compensated for, but purchasing a season ticket offers me a small measure of comfort, knowing that my actions caused a loss to the public interest.  I received an email which ask me to negotiate being class teacher in this summer (please see the attachment). I hope that I could teach the lovely students again, which may not be allowed with a criminal record. I would please ask that you would please provide me a single opportunity to settle all outstanding sums owed outside of court without the need for legal proceedings which would have a determinantal impact on my teaching career.  I sincerely apologise again for my crime. If you need anything further from me to help you please let me know.   Yours sincerely,
    • LoL Dx you crack me up. Thanks for the advice. I'll stay positive.
    • Utter Rubbish!! lowell dont write and beg for deals once they start court. as for your attitude, we'll thats nothing new for you.😎 you wont be quizzed, it's not like TV, simply refer to your defence/WS when answering anything the judge may ever ask. well it involves chickens. dx  
    • Thanks fk, I hope I don't have to face the court. Bless you for the reassurance.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

That's right, our lovely DWP and JCP who want you to get back in to employment but when it comes to the crunch are unwilling to help you when you need a little bit of help and this set you up to FAIL!

 

As you know I am on UC, I lost £95.00pm when moved from ESA and HB so am struggling.

I have been applying for work but getting nowhere

 

my work coach (work coach LOL) says to me "try registering with agencies and seeing if they can help" ... OK,

I email a few agencies and I geta reply from Hays and speak with them on the phone about my work history and background etc.

 

They tell me that they may have a few openings and would like to meet me

- fine, train fare to town return is £9.40.

 

As I am on UC almost £10 means a lot of food shopping and it is an amount that I can hardly 'lose' at the moment given my financial circumstances.

 

I email my 'work coach' and say I have arranged an appt with the agency and I would like to claim my fare back.

 

Guess what? DWP WON'T PAY IT as it is not an actual interview just registration.

So I say "if I want interviews I need to register so I am on their books"

- the answer (like a robot) "No we cannot pay your fare"

 

Fine, end of story, appointment cancelled

- you want to know why I have not been doing as you say and seeing agencies?

 

BECAUSE YOU (DWP) ARE NOT HELPING ME AT ALL WHEN I AM TRYING TO BE PROACTIVE FINDING WORK!!!!

 

What part of I am on UC and struggle with rent/food do you not understand?

 

Want me back in work and off UC then HELP ME WITH A LOUSY TRAIN FARE!

 

Angry? Yeah, expected this? Yeah ... DWP ... no help at all,

 

just keep cutting peoples money and offering no help at all.

 

Pathetic.

Have you complained to your local MP?

 

This is exactly the sort of thing they need to be made accountable for, after all it's there train set, and only they can change the trisection of the [edited] DWP.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

If I lose my current job, I won't (thankfully) qualify for UC, so would fall back on claiming JSA. However, because I have a lodger, I wouldn't qualify for any JSA payments unless I made her homeless. Jumping through the UC/JSA hoops just for the national insurance contributions hardly seems worth the effort, and I most certainly will not take part in the next version of the Work Programme without substantial renumeration.

 

UC is a source of constant worry for my lodger, and the system failures in processing her payments constantly means she is in arrears with the rent. Just as well that I'm understanding and sympathetic in letting the arrears accrue.

Ask about programmes such as Work and Health, which are designed to help those that have had health issues back into work. JCP will refer you and the organisation that runs the programmes will pay for travel costs to go to interviews with agencies etc. The work coaches don't have access to funds themselves to pay, but if you sign up to companies that receive funding, they can pay the costs you are concerned about.

Your lodger can request for DWP to pay the rent directly to you, provided there is evidence of a rent agreement. If the lodger is getting housing costs as part of their UC claim, this should have been verified. It is simply a case of the lodger making the request and you as the landlord will be asked to confirm your details to get paid direct.

 

The rules on direct payment to landlords changed early this month. Before the process was a bit messy. Depends on how good your lodger is in dealing with their benefits claim. If they are having problems with payments, it might suggest that there are other issues, you may not be aware of. UC is a digital service, where the claimant can print off their statement showing everything included in a month, including any deductions due to be taken off. If payments are late, perhaps your lodger has not met their commitments on time. They need to log into their UC regularly to undertake any actions required of them.

We could do with some help from you.

Moving just before Christmas coupled with the seasonal delays that the festive period brings were at the heart of the payment problems. Due to a medical condition, she is currently exempt from looking for work or even engaging with the DWP. Over the next couple of months, I would hope things settle down and payments are made on time & the arrears cleared. With a bit of advice and guidance on budgeting along with life skills (she is young and still finding her feet in the world), I'm sure she will get to grips with the finances.

Thank you to the site team for deleting the reply from yet another troll. I saw it last night and simply ignored it. I seem to attract them these days. I know I sometimes go off on a tangent and that is through sheer frustration so please let me know if I need to tone down my posts. I guess as this has not been deleted/altered it is ok.

 

I do find this a great site to vent as well as get valuable advice - it is just a shame, I guess like most sites, with people who can remain anonymous and hide behind keyboards they can get away with saying what they want provoking a reaction.

 

Keep up the good work guys and gals!

 

P.S What is this I now have under my user name "I record my calls.Do you?"

It's an advert for Truecall, the ''Rolls Royce'' of telephone recorders, every home should have one!
