    • Hi Sweet and welcome to CAG   Are you willing to disclose the employer in this case ?
    • I was the manager of an off license. We reopened on mon 30th, I received a very large delivery which we weren’t expecting (and I wasn’t told about until 2hrs before by my line manager) all managers received a text from regional manager which stated when deliveries are coming in shops are to be closed. He didn’t ring this info in, I just read the text.   When I saw how big del was (completely covered the floor, could barely move around it) I kept my shutters closed and proceeded to pack delivery away. The store remained closed and we lost 5hrs trading time. I didn’t seek permission from manager to do this, with the current safety precautions enacted (only allowed 1 customer in at a time as manadated by HQ) I didn’t feel this could be safely achieved with 3 members of staff in and all the stock everywhere.  regional manger calls into shop at 4:50, hits roof that it’s closed and storms out of shop after exclaiming I didn’t have the authority to keep shop closed.   Fast forward 1 1/2 weeks later today regional manager comes in at 4pm with prepared questions, I answer truthfully stated I didn’t think it was safe I had the best interests of business at heart that I had turned up for work every day since this incident and nothing had been said. He said that they will examine this information and can come back for more evidence if needed.    He goes away again and at 5:59 (my shift finished at 6) he came back in saying they’d examined all the evidence and that their decision was dismissal, I was to gather my things and there’d be a letter in the post with information should I wish to appeal.  quite a shock.   I will see what this letter states as their reasons I committed gross misconduct, I am a bit at a loss as to what I specifically did to be deemed gross misconduct.   I’ve worked for them for 10years, taken 2 days off sick in that entire time and had a faultless record   I’m just flabbergasted they’d immediately sack me for something which happened in unprecedented times when all I was trying to do was keep myself and my staff safe and safely make their store presentable and adequately accessible for all.   Any thoughts on the above? Obviously this is all too fresh as it happened only hours ago 
    • Hi KL1 and welcome to CAG.   You say the buyer contacted you saying, "...... he had seen it cheaper somewhere else and wanted to cancel the sale."   Do you have this in writing and, if so, in what format ?   It would be useful if you could tell us more about the item you sold.    
    • I wanted to report a success against UKPS that started in Dec 2018 and was concluded today.  I did do a bit of reading through this site for guidance though so thanks for that!    in Dec 2018 a family member reversed onto a private road in Coventry and waited about 1 minute or so to collect their partner.  Meanwhile the owner was loitering and waiting to catch anyone on his land with photos.  2 photos were taken about 40 seconds apart.   With my help I disputed the charge stating that the driver had not "parked" but had only stopped momentarily to pick up a passenger.  I did not state at any point who the driver was.   UKPS from Leamington Spa were trying to enforce this and insisted on the charge of £60 + £100 being paid.  I sent a 2nd letter confirming the position of the 1st letter and that no further letters would be sent.   4 threatening letters were sent from Debt Recovery Plus and Zenith Collections and duly ignored.  The last kindly offered to settle for £136!    Then a letter from Gladstones Sols threatening the same was also sent, and mentioned Beavis vs Parking Eye.  This was also duly ignored.   Finally a Letter Before Action was sent by email.  Aha!  Game on.  They cited Vehicle Control Services Ltd v Nick Idle and Vehicle Control Services Limited v Damen Ward and that stopping for any time is a breach, and it was only the length of time stopped that may affect the value of the breach.   I said that signage said no PARKING, not no STOPPING and that appropriate case law was JOPSON v HOMEGUARD where the judge specifically said "Merely to stop a vehicle cannot be to park it"   They then came back at me with an evidence bundle they were allegedly going to use at court against me, stated the signage was clear,  a nd repeated their "no stopping" case   I came back at them with the same as before and added that, in their world, someone coming onto the land and wanting to read the signage would have precisely NO TIME AT ALL to so as, according to them, even stopping for mere seconds was a breach.  I also threatened that I would claim costs for my wasted time in dealing the case.   Today they emailed me as follows: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Good Morning,   Thank you for your correspondence. We apologise for the delay in our response, however as no further action has taken place we trust you agree no prejudice has been suffered.   Please note that our Client has cancelled our instruction on this matter and the matter is considered closed.   No further action is warranted. Kind Regards ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   16 months on and UKPS gave in

First of all I have just looked on my on-line account and set up a repayment plan(which maybe a mistake on my part) and received a auto generated letter confirming the plan, however I have noticed that there is a paragraph which states 'We note that you admit the amount claimed and as discussed we have contacted the court and informed them of this and requested that they enter Judgment on admission based on the amount you are able to afford to repay.'

However, I have not received a Pre Action Protocol letter before action and neither have I received a Claim Form in the post from the courts, also BW Legal have never discussed anything with me as I have not telephoned them, this auto generated letter was dated today 02/03 and was received within minutes.

I have checked my credit file and interestingly this account is showing as settled even though it is showing as PRAC/BW Legal being the owner of the debt which was assigned to them back on the 09/12/2016.

The original loan with PDUK was taken out on the 16th December, 2012 for £149.00, never received a default notice or notice of assignment and no payments was made to PDUK, given the date will it be safe to say that the debt is Statute Barred or does setting up a repayment plan reset the Statute Barred clock if that is the case?.

Many Thanks.

Now I have to be very careful what I say about BW / PRAC etc - I find that letter very worrying. But im guessing it was from their automated portal that this "Letter" / "Notification" was sent to you?

If no payments have been made in 6 years then it could be SB - But paying BW may reset the clock if it is UNDER the 6 year period.

Yes it's through their online portal, what is the best course of action with this letter?, as I have not received a letter before action or a claim form, they also have my correct address as I have received letters asking for payments/discounts in the past.

I would chalk it up to an error on their part... Whats it say on your credit file for this account / Date of default etc? 

I will say this though... PRAC financial who is reporting this have been known to report incorrect information. I can vouch for that personally.

I have checked my credit report and there is no court information registered, as for the entry it is showing as assigned to PRAC/BW Legal but showing as settled, loan taken out iin 2012 but to my knowledge I was not defaulted by PDUK.

No, I have lived at my address for nearly 30 years and have been receiving begging/discount letters from them so they have my correct address, interestingly the account has been removed from my Equifax credit report over the past couple of days.

Though I did take a screenshot which I have attached,shows the account marked as settled and no default date,interestingly since I took the screenshot a couple of days agoo this account has vanished from Equifax.

This screenshot shows the discount and after checking my on-line account with BW they have wrote off half of the debt without informing me.
