    • Don't ignore. This is a bad idea. Start off by taking photographs of any signage and also of the non-existent barriers. Monitor this thread for more advice from others who are more up to date with the situation.
    • Ive recently parked in my local sainsburys where the parking gate arms werent lifting so theyve taken them away, im not a frequent user of the carpark but have received a penalty notice from horizon for not paying for parking. so i rang the shopping centre who told me that horizon have now taken over the carpark, how was i suppose to know thus was my reply to which hes told me they have w6 new signs in place which i didnt see. can anyone tell me where i stand im thinking of ignoring it as its not the council so so its not actually a fine? 
    • yes ignore everything end of   moved to the RLP forum
    • I was in a little bit of a rush when replying earlier, and seemed to have some formatting issues after saving the post.   I feel as though the 1 from both lists requirement they have isn't proportional, they've communicated with me at my current address for months, and have sent me utility bills to this address and account number. There's been no other issues with the exact same copy of my Drivers License when used for another SAR so i'm not sure that "can't accept it as it's not in the standard format" is really an acceptable excuse.   I feel that the only valid point that they have is asking if i could let them know why i wanted my SAR to be sent to a different address.   They still failed to reply within the 30 day timeframe so i think that regardless of what they've now said in their they are still in breach of GDPR.   I'm in over my head now and i'm not sure what action i should take or how to/if i should respond to them, now that they have finally replied.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Westcot - Debt Recovery for Paypal

Recommended Posts



I will try and explain the scenario that took place between my wife and PayPal as best I can.


One morning, my wife was contacted via Facebook messenger by who she believed to be a colleague at her workplace. This was before Christmas and the colleague explained that her PayPal account had restrictions on it and asked if my wife could accept money into her PayPal account for items the colleague had sold to help with the cost of Christmas.


Being the ever pleasing colleague she agreed.


After the money appeared in my wife's PayPal account, she was instructed to then withdraw to her own bank account and then transfer the money to another bank account provided by the work colleague. This was all completed without any issues.


She arrived at her work that morning to be told by her colleague that there was never any request to move money by her and that her Facebook account was hacked.


There were two payments made in to my wife's account, both approximately £490 pounds. All money had passed through so we though it was very strange, maybe laundering, but just moved on as our own money wasn't at risk.


A few days later however the second payment of £490 was declined, leaving my wife £490 down. We didn't really understand what happened but we assumed the account from which the funds were sent was either hacked as well or they were dodgy too.


We contacted our bank to find out where the final destination of these funds went, and to log a case of fraud, but it was a German, online bank and they have yet to enter successfully into dialogue with our bank, so nothing is progressing. And we don't expect it to get anywhere.


We now have the PayPal debt collection agency chasing her which we are not happy about. We are also not happy about the fact that no one at PayPal, the bank or any of the other fraud organisations is willing to look into the case in any more detail, despite this transpiring to be quite a common [problem].


Should we stick to our guns regarding this or will that be futile?


Do Westcot and/or PayPal take these kind of things to court?


Will this effect my wife's credit?


I would also like to point out that all conversations that took place on Facebook etc have been recorded and ready to be shown to anyone who needs to see them....


Thanks in advance.

there is another thread about the same thing here so the advice is the same, you report it to actionfraud and get a crime number, which you give to paypal. that will stop them in their tracks unless they can show that your wife conspired to defraud rather than just falling for a confidence trick that is actually quite well known.

i'm sure that actionfraud will give you suitable contact details for paypal Uk and they can tell wetcloths to wind their necks in
