    • I would have thought it easier in small claims.  Your wife very kindly and considerately wrote to her employer offering more notice than she was obliged to do.  No doubt she had the best interests of her employer in mind and wanted to give them adequate time to plan ahead and find a replacement.  To her amazement, her employer took advantage of her kindness and unreasonably treated her notice as taking immediate effect, blah, blah blah.   Personally, I think an argument like that is quite likely to succeed in small claims where they won't be accustomed to arguing the niceties of employment contracts.  It's obvious your wife is being taken advantage of.   Again, I think you are more likely to get an even-handed and fair hearing in small claims than at an ET.   However, I'm not a lawyer and I'm definitely not an employment lawyer.  See what others advise and whether anybody else thinks it would be easier and more likely to be successful simply to sue.  (Oh - and remember if you want to sue them for the money you've got six years to do so, whereas the time limits for ETs are ridiculously tight.  Can't remember off the top of my head but is it something stupid like 60 or 90 days?  Ridiculous).   Of course there may then be issues about getting future references from them.  But if you go down the ET route that'll likely be a problem anyway.    
    • say i was going to write to all these about the debts and try get deal to reduce monthly payments and stop all interest do I write to them first or do I stop payments then write to them ?   Same if I was going for a DRO do I just sort out and apply for that first or stop all payments then apply for it .   Also I see for a DRO it says ive got to go through  an authorised debt adviser so who do i go to about this and at moment we still on lockdown here in wales and not many places open .   Last off ive asked regarding pro rata forms and still cant find any 
    • Yes but I think in a small claims court it will be far harder to prove. I have plenty of evidence to discredit the Director but again it could still not be enough.   She will be a month with no money and I think it’s far more risky than a tribunal where this action alone could result in the desired outcome.   I have said to her to request a face to face meeting to enable both parties to conclude, ideally resolve and at that point we can decide what action we wish to take.

    • 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 all,

 

I received a letter today from BWLegal in relation to a debt of £704.80 original debt was with The Money Shop, payday loan of just over £100.00. The debt is due to be made SB in March. The letter is threatening to take me to court and place a CCJ on my credit file.

 

I have typed the below letter and would appreciate any feedback you could give. This will be the first letter they have received from me, I have not made any contact with them previously. I have also typed out the content of the letter I received from them today.

 

16th January 2019

 

CCA Request removed please do not post our template requests.

 

The Below is a rough outline of the letter received today

 

Dear MR XXXXXX

 

We have been instructed by PRAC Financial Ltd to commence legal action in the form of issuing a claim against you in the county court, without further notice, in respect of the above debt. If payment or response is not received before the 14th February 2019. If you dispute this debt please tell us why so we can help resolve this matter.

Principal Debt: £708.74

Estimated Interest: £118.37

Estimated Court Fees: £60.00

Estimated Solicitors cost: £70.00

 

Enclosures

Particulars of the debt

On 20 February 2013 you entered into an agreement with Instant Csh Loans Ltd t/a The Money Shop to provide you with a fixed sum Loan agreement account. You failed to make payment in accordance with the terms of the agreement and it was later terminated and has since been assigned to our client on the 9th December 2016. Notice of this assignment has previously been given to you. Our client is not currently applying any interest, fees or charges to your account.

 

Any help with my CCA Request letter is greatly appreciated, I want to make sure I have the correct sections quoted etc.

 

Thanks in advance

Thank you for the swift reply. So to confirm, I need to send the above CCA Request alongside a PAP as per the post in the link you provided?

 

if so, is the CCA Request letter I typed OK to send as is?

 

Thanks

Bogus charges. Adding on interest after defaults.

 

Minicredit used to be the kings of doing it. There are threads about loans of 150 turning into over a thousand.

Update

 

I received a response today to my initial letter to BW Legal. They have Confirmed that the file has been placed on hold whilst they query the matter with their client. They also state that they will contact me upon receipt of a response from their client (Money Shop)

 

From your experience what are the next likely outcomes? If they have the original agreement signed by me and send evidence what should I do? The debt is Statute Barred in March.

 

If they don’t have the original agreement do I send another letter requesting they remove the default and stop chasing me for it?

 

Thanks in advance

cant get the default removed no the oc registered that upon sale or before nothing to do with the debt buyer or their dogs.

 

what or not paperwork they hold is immaterial once the debt hits sb.

 

you simply fire of our sb letter and forget about it.

 

sit on your hands.

don't enter into any stupid letter tennis.
