    • Ho @honeybee13,     Re the account number...Phew! Thank you for that...I'm normally pretty careful in redacting stuff but, did post this very late last night and then started working on...redacting some documents 🙄......in the early hours of the morning when I couldn't sleep, which was in preparation for bringing you up to speed with everything.   Re your question: that's what spurred me on to finally join the site: npower have been in so many breaches over the years, it's mind numbing. One of their latest series of breaches even involves the Ombudsman sanctioning those breaches 👿 Here's what he said about this:-   "The other aspect is in relation to the deadlock letter. You are unhappy that this was sent to your nephew, Mr Sxxxx, but addressed to you. I did seek clarification from npower regarding this and they confirmed what I suspected. Because Mr Sxxxx has been assisting you with your complaint and is a named representative on your npower account, as he is on your account with us, npower state that he had requested information from them, including a deadlock letter. npower therefore sent the deadlock letter to Mr Sxxxx but because the deadlock letter is about your account, the deadlock letter was addressed to you. This is a reasonable explanation from npower, and I do not class this as a breach of GDPR because npower has not shared your personal data with anyone they were not meant to."    
    • Thanks, I have only raised it the once and just took the chance to ask if he'd spoken to the chap and once done, fully intended to thanks both. No, I don't want all the hassle, saying I'd pull my big girl pants up and listen to advice given on here. It was he who began to shout at me so I tried to stand my ground. I know these things can get out of hand. What happens if I need work on the panel in future and for workmen to be at that height interrupts their signal? This isn't a hypothetical question as I've had to have remedial work done in 2015, two years after install with scaffolding up to the roof line?  I really dont want grief again at a later date. Thanks for the reply. It's appreciated.
    • That's certainly an avenue worth exploring. It's a shame when somebody's driving record suffers because of what is essentially an "administrative" offence. Unfortunately there's no difference in the penalty between what happened here and somebody tanking it at 120 on the M1 simply declining to name the driver in order to avoid the (almost inevitable) ban for that offence.   As well as that he may be asked whether he has any unspent convictions in (say) the past five years and whatever the position with his licence he must answer "yes" to that. Whilst penalty points become spent when they cease to have an effect (i.e. after three years) the accompanying endorsement is not spent until five years have elapsed. The problem I think the OP may face is that it is often the employer's insurers who set the conditions and they may not be easily swayed.
    • Would it be an option to appeal to the company looking to employ you, explaining the situation (why you have points on your licence) and highlighting that the index offence wasn’t committed by you, and now you are more aware of the need for company policies tracking drivers, to protect the other company staff?

Hello

I have a cc debt with NAJM in dubai after losing my job last year.

they passed the debt to a company in dubai called fast track collection.

 

They managed to get my work number and have been calling the office continuously so I have had to speak to them as I need to sort out the situation.

 

They are very aggressive and shout down the phone demanding Payment and won't even listen to my side as I would like to set up a monthly payment.

 

The biggest issue I have is today they have said that they are sending a legal notification to my HR dept which could cause me big problems as I work in finance industry.

 

Are they legally allowed to do anything direct from dubai as thought that the new uae UK debt agreement meant they have to go through UK courts to pursue the debt.

 

What can I do as I can't afford to lose my job any suggestion a would be greatly appreciated as need to act fast

don't know how you deal with this but it all bogus ...totally.

 

there NO reciprocal agreements with the UK EU or anyone else to allow ANY enforcement or recognition to UAE debts in this country to allow this to happen .

 

sadly you've suffered their BS on the phone too.

 

it cant hurt your UK status no. and your HR debt should know this already too.

Would it be worth going back to them saying I have consulted legal counsel in UK and they have no legal standing with regard to involving my company

I think the only issue is the uae are using interpol to enforce debts by red listing people which means you can be arrested at any airport

well if you believe the lies on certain websites that they are

most turn out to be patsy cases to generate money in fees to supposedly 'protect you' or 'help you out'

but ofcourse in the end you learn that site and that woman are actually in bed with UAE etc and not only fees but settlement figures have to be paid.

 

.keep to your own thread please

In which jurisdiction do you currently live UK or Dubai?

Where is your employer based?

Just tell you employers that it is a private matter related to when you lived in Dubai.

The matter is subject to dispute in Dubai, but you cannot resolve because it is not possible to do this, given the potential issues you would face in Dubai.

 

If your employers are aware of the truth and you have nothing to hide, then there is no harm that the Dubai debt can cause you in the UK.


We could do with some help from you.

interpol refuse to do it for the same reason the courts refuse to entertain a claim from them. the only countries that will take any notice are the UAE and a few of their neighbours like Saudi Arabia.

might be best to start a new thread

rather than randomly posting on various UAE thread with vague questions and assumptions.
