    • Yes - I get paid on the the lash working day of the month
    • 23rd is a friday... do you get paid monthly and after the 23rd...trying to make this only supposed use look more real
    • Great thanks! I have refined it -    ‘Dear Prosecutions Manager,   I would first of all like to start my response by saying how deeply sorry I am. I realise my actions were wrong and it is in no way representative of how much respect I have for Southeastern and their staff. I am remorseful about the poor decision I have made. I’d like to try and explain my circumstances at the time I evaded my fare.   I have recently returned to work but I have been on reduced pay for a while due to COVID-19 which led to me committing the incident mentioned. Additionally, I have been under stress as both my parents have been diagnosed with long term illnesses during the pandemic and I have been concerned about travelling and exposing them to COVID-19. Although I don’t live with them, they have been reliant on me during the pandemic to collect shopping, medication and support them throughout hospital and doctor’s appointments. The extra pressure has taken a toll on my mental health and I have consequently made a careless choice.   I was so ashamed of myself when I was stopped by the Revenue Protection Officer and since then, I have ensured I have paid full fare for every journey I have made. The consequences of my actions have weighed heavily on my mind since.   I am concerned that a possible prosecution would ruin any future employment opportunities and I would really like to settle this out of court with a contribution towards the administration costs as compensation for my actions. I am regretful of the extra pressure and inconvenience caused to all involved and would like to make amends.   I’d like to end this letter by saying that I understand the gravity of my actions and will never travel without a valid ticket in future. I thank you for taking the time to read my response and I appreciate any leniency you can show in this matter.’

    • In 2016 my business was subject to a fraud regarding a Rolex watch which we had taken in as part exchange from a local and well known customer. We took his steel Rolex and he paid a few thousand £s extra and bought a pre owned gold one from us.  Having bought his watch, part of the deal was we would not sell it until he returned from over wintering  in Australia after a few months. Upon his return he was planning to either part exchange the pre owned gold one back and buy a brand new version of it,  or he might like to simply  buy his original one back.  The watch therefore sat in my safe for nearly a year. At which point we attempted to contact the customer only to find his obituary. He was ill before he travelled so we suspect he knew he might not return.   It was a few weeks before Christmas so we put his (which was now ours) watch in the window (as it was) to sell and sold it within a few days. Had it not sold before Christmas we  would have sent it to Rolex for service and refurbishment, and subsequently offer it for a higher price in the spring (Rolex would also have identified it as fake). Two years later the customer that bought the watch returned it quite upset after he had sent it to a national watch buyer to sell, but was told it was a high end counterfeit (ie not your $20 Chinese throwaway, but one purposely manufactured to deceive).   After some checking ourselves, we refunded the customer and spoke with our insurers.   Our business insurance provided all risks cover with a few exclusions (terrorism etc) and was a very well known policy that many/most UK retail jewellers take up. Indeed we had held the policy for many years.  Fraud is an insured risk.   It is my view that a customer selling us a fake watch is a fraud. The broker enquired with underwriters and they have said it is not covered. I am not satisfied and have asked the broker to send me the wording of the policy so I can read the exclusions. I am told they have searched their archive but cannot find the policy so cannot send it to me. They have asked me if I have my copy? I haven't found my policy document either and fear I threw it away upon renewal. But wonder, if I do keep looking, whether it would be a good tactic to let them have my copy. We have been renovating the house for a year and the attic is absolutely chock a block with stuff, a thorough search through the old books would take a week or more.  I have suggested if they cannot find the wording sold with my policy they should settle the claim. Clearly they cannot reject the claim without the wording? It sounds odd to me that they even need to retrieve the policy to find the wording.    I am quite certain a claim for fraud is an insured risk. I guess somebody has to judge whether the transaction was fraudulent first though. I am quite happy to issue a summons if the insurers reject my claim by trying to suggest the risk was not covered (unless it obviously isn't), which is why we need the wording.   Comments and a strategy would be very useful to understand whether or how to proceed. The claim is for £3500.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

A little reminder

 

Its now even more illegal to leave Britain without permission from the UK gov than it is to kiss your grandma, or for your granny to chat over a socially distanced cup of tea with a neighbour in a shared garden

.. and dont forget to hide if you see police when you are more than 800 yards from home, and run like the wind if you are at a park or beauty spot and see one (unless your name is Cummings)

 

and Police are in our schools at the beck, call or even unreasonable whims of teachers to intimidate and threaten children without the childs parents being present, or apparently even any just cause

 

Offer your thanks to Boris 'the Liar' Johnson and Pritti (monstrous) Patel

If being offended is an offence by the person who offended me

then why arnt Johnson, Handcock, Jenrick, Patel, Gove, duncan-smith, Smugg, Corbyn and Baxter all serving life with hard labour

 

They have all offended me far more than anyone calling me a Jessy or even 'Sir' (whatever my orientation)

They've got to get their second jabs yet - if that hasn't already gone out of the window

and given the reports on what some of the newer variants of cov-2 do, everyone will need a 'booster' shot.

How dare Boris Johnson suggest that people working from home have too many 'days off'! The people I know are doing more hours than before.

 

It was the same last year, ministers were threatening that people would lose their jobs if they didn't return to offices. Very shortly afterwards they were saying to stay at home again because there was a second wave coming. They're completely out of touch with the real world.

Wonder if theres one showing how many exported/shared with other nations?

 

If UK made 12 million

exported/shared zero

Had 5 million from India

Had 21 million from EU

Inoculated 30ish million UK citizens

 

Means it has 8 million in /stock - any spoiled

Hardly any moral high-ground, or even mid-ground for Johnson the Liar there eh?

 

As an aside the anti- covid nose sprays are starting to come out of the woodwork in their droves, with an aussie one authorised for UK sale through Lloyds pharmacy.

I do recall that the established 'first defence ' (or something like) nose spray was presented as somewhat effective against covid.

The DHSC are building another huge database of patient information, symptoms, test results and so on, in addition to the Palantir that some commentators are worried about.

 

https://bylinetimes.com/2021/03/29/covid-19-healthcare-agency-the-mother-of-all-health-databases/

 

I'm not sure if you can ask to be excluded from it like a previous database but people can send an SAR to know their details. Unless it's blocked by the secretive Cabinet Office FoI unit...

Interesting that the new mutated versions are popping up, and rightly generating surge testing to ensure (we hope) they dont spread, despite certain parties claiming theres no extra risk - - -  yeah right

Same versions also popping up in Europe and USA among other places.

 

Seems to me we aren't being hit so hard for a couple of reasons

1. We've been in a far more severe and obeyed lockdown (with cops harassing people for just travelling a few miles or talking over a fence)

(A number of reports state that is the MAIN reason for the reduction in cases)

 

2. We have more people inoculated (early ones + NHS with the more effective (as I see) pfiser vaccine)

Although many of those were and still are isolation either for health reasons, they dont go out much anyway, or they are the survivors remaining in care homes.

 

So we are coming out of lockdownI

* Apparently FEW people coming into the country are actually isolating, and Johnson senior and that ilk can still gad about abroad with a mask on their chin.

 

* We are now apparently almost exclusively using a vaccine with a significantly lower effectiveness (as I see), with even that in short supply, and which apparently has far lower effectiveness against the new variants.

 

* People again being pressed to return to work places - even when its not just not necessary - but a burden and risk to the staff and employers - apparently just to get people into high street shops in city centers!!

 

Shop staff coming into contact with 100's of people a day every day still have NOT been given preferential access to the vaccine

Legal action? - He could have just changed the law ....

As he does when it suites him

 

Of course, what he should have done is manage it properly not just send kids and staff back to 'socially distance' in normal class sizes when he was threatened by his donars

"as long as it doesn’t deliver its commitment to us, the doses stay in Europe — except for Covax,” he said. Covax is an international vaccine programme that is aimed at delivering vaccines mainly to poor countries.

 

He said they are just trying to make sure that AstraZeneca’s contract with the EU “is delivered — and of course we are here to also help our British friends … But we have nothing to negotiate.”"
