    • Yep! I always thought I got that because the account I had then was Marrisota but when the marriage issues happened and back in 2015 when I was initially trying to get this all sorted out the “debt” paperwork was all JD Williams - aren’t they the “parent” company?   I will check the dates.    so do I stop paying while I do all the paperwork? 
    • Even though I’ve been paying them for this long?    I know you’re going to say something along the lines of “because they’re a bunch of muppets” but why are they doing this as if I’ve not been paying?   dx - I took the name and address out for privacy...
    • you didn't pay lidls the speculative invoice charge of £45.   the only connection to them is their head office signed their region up to have their local stores car parks managed by the scammers because they had been duped into thinking people that abuse their car parks cost the region xxx in lost shopping revenue because another shopper could have used it.   they never see any of the money these bandits gleam from people paying a speculative invoice off ever and annually get ripped off by paying the fleecers £10'000 each year to give them permission to manage their carparks. anyone that pays the money goes directly into the parking fleecers pockets.   however i understand you are new and green but part of a forum is also self help which relates to my comment about where did you ever get the idea to pay them from...certainly not here.   so lidls wont be doing and can't do anything further, they certain wont be interested in instructing their fleecers to refund you and can't and most certainly won't refund you themselves.   go do a chargeback   dx              
    • OK,  I have not claimed anyone told us to pay in this forum.   As grown up adults we made this decision. I am sharing our experience in case it benefits anyone.    Our approach to this is if Lidl didn't help at the end we would take our shopping elsewhere and the so called reduced charge of £45 paid would be the end of the story, even if is unfair.    As I mentioned Lidl cust. service already emailed us to confirm that they have contacted Athena to cancel the charge, I'll first follow up with Lidl. If not resolved will resort to chargeback.  
    • no one ever said PAY THEM, you never ever do that.   if you paid by debit card go get it back by a chargeback to your issuing bank.

    • 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 .

Just a bit of advice please.

 

My son started Jury Duty today, and has been placed on a Case that is going to last 6 weeks plus. He's worried about his normal job because he has only been working there for 10 Months.

Although it's full time, he is employed through an agency. Can somebody let me know where he stands job wise.

 

Hope this is in the right place.

 

Thanks in advance.

Taking time off work

Give a copy of the letter confirming your jury service to your employer.

Your employer must let you have time off work but can ask you to delay your jury service if your absence will have a serious effect on business.

Wages during jury service

Your employer can choose whether or not to pay you during your service. If they do not you can claim for loss of earnings from the court.

Problems with your employer

You can complain to an employment tribunal if you’re unreasonably refused time off for jury service.

If you’re sacked because you do jury service you may be able to claim unfair dismissal. However, if your employer asks you to delay jury service and you refuse, you may not be able to claim unfair dismissal.

Thank you for your quick reply. I think we are worried a bit more because he has only been there for 10 months, therefore does not have a full contract.

They are fine with him having Jury Duty, but I don't think for a minute they thought the trial can last for over 6 weeks.

Really bad luck that...I have done Jury Service twice now and never had a case last over 2 days

 

Has he actually been selected for this case  or simply been told to be prepared ? In most cases, jury service lasts about two weeks, but given the nature of some criminal cases, this cannot be guaranteed. If a trial is likely to last longer than two weeks,

Jurors will be asked at court if this will be difficult for them.

They took 50 of them upstairs, then narrowed it down to 21, then he filled in a questionnaire He then got took into the Courtroom and was asked if he recognised any of the offenders..

They then narrowed it down to 12 (he is one of them), and 2 on standby.

Well thats normal procedure for the cases...but any case lasting longer than the normal 2 weeks then as per my last post and he should have voiced is concerns.

If they didnt even bother to ask then they have not followed due process.
