    • @tobyjugg2 It has been decided that you will now be responsible for deciding on the Covid-19 measures that Government will apply to England.   What measures will you introduce ?   If it were me deciding, I think I would enforce PPE requirements in any place that is open to the public and that includes schools.    So both Children and all school staff would have to wear face masks and those that cannot wear masks due to a health condition, should not be attending school anyway.   In terms of how to enforce. I would employ more Council enforcement officers, with the power to issue £100 penalties to people and £1000 to any company/organisation.   These penalties would increase for second, third and subsequent offences.   This virus is going to be with us for months or years, so we might as well  get used to having to excercise reasonable precautions.   Lock downs should be used when they need to deploy a fire break to try to deal with the virus spread in areas.

    • I don't see any problem with giving them the information they are asking for.
    • Acerbic takedown of Muppet Johnsn, and the Data Loss Dido debacle mthat is test & Trace. Dr North asks what will they do imposing telephone number fines that people can't pay?   Well maybe they send in bailiffs to evict them and snatch their home if an Owner Occupier?  Off to prison if tenant and all goods taken and sold under a new emergency power given to bailiffs to take the lot regardless?  The bailiff firms will love that, they have been doing no business recently. https://www.turbulenttimes.co.uk/news/corona/coronavirus-the-cummings-dividend/

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi Guys

 

My friend was caught shoplifting at Sainsbury's, the value of the item was around £5 - £6. Security staff took down his details but did not call the police - they issued him with a lifetime ban instead. I know he'll expect a letter from DWF but can they pass on his details to the police and if so will they take action to investigate this and charge him or give him a fine?

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

The honest answer is YES they can.

 

The fact is though, if they were going to inform the police they would have done it there and then.  If they contact the police and report it as a crime, then the person reporting will have to complete varying amounts of paperwork including a full witness statement.  Not to mention waiting on the phone for a fair amount of time to report it in the first place.

 

The store / security don't want to waste 2-3 hours of staff time for a £5-£6 theft.  Tell your friend he has been silly and to use this as his only chance.  I know plenty of security teams that DO call the police for £5-6 thefts.

Thank you for your reply, that's very helpful. He's incredibly embarrassed by the ordeal and knows what he did was extremely silly and illogical.

short answer is no as that would be breaking the data protection act and GDPR.

Do Sainsbury’s have a picture board for staff to see all the shoplifters faces? Like a rogue gallery I’ve always wondered?

 

The retailer I do work for used to have a rogues gallery in a number of stores - polaroid type snaps not lifted from CCTV in many cases but with those detailed asked to look at the camera and watch the birdie (many I recall were smiling or posing for the camera). There were literally hundreds of photos on some of the walls with a summary of what they were suspected of taking written underneath. All disappeared a few years ago though and have never been seen since. 

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.
