    • Dep Thx Eric's Brother. There was a person on this forum who told me his case was thrown out at the same court because of the contract. I requested more info, but he has disappeared since his case was dismissed.  I was just wondering whether it was worth whacking off a letter to IPS pointing out one of their members, using their logo, is making a claim based on illegal signage and other issues in contravention of their Code of Practice. Would they lean on VCS to withdraw, do you think?
    • Mother and father worked here and then went to SA in about 1978 returning to UK in about 1996 and worked here until 2016 when her husband died at age 66.  He was still working at the time.  She then went to live with daughter in SA.  Mother only claims for her pension. 
    • Thanks, I owe the money, no issue with that, I will SAR the company.  If I need to just pay it and have the CCJ for a few years so be it.  Just thought I'd explore all options
    • By the way you wrote that post, i can see that you are as confused by the situation as someone reading it. Important advice must be not to pay for any flights etc, until they understand the situation fully. Those that have British passports could be entitled to receive UK benefits. However, nothing is that straightforward. The passport does guarantee anything. The daughter could be entitled to Universal Credit ( which includes housing) as a British passport holder, but this can only be confirmed when she has gone through the Habitual Residency test (HRT). So you will need to read about HRT for British passport holders returning to the UK. There will be requirements to provide information about why they are returning to the UK and what work searches have they done to find work on their return to the UK. In regard to the mother who has a British passport, you will be correct in presuming that no council is going to be helpful in paying for the care home fees immediately on arrival in the UK. When did the mother last live in the UK ? When did the mother last work in the UK ? British embassy in South Africa may be able to provide information and assist with applications ? Just getting on a plane, landing in the UK and expecting help to resolve their situation, would be a silly thing to do. I can see the mother ending up in an NHS hospital for a period, while people wondered how they were going to deal with the situation. Probably not the first to do this, but if the mother also has a South African passport, they could put her on a plane back to SA and then the Daughter would be a difficult situation. Embassy in South Africa must be first place of advice.
    • There are online forums for people moving from South Africa to the UK. This is one of them.   https://moveup.co.za/2019/03/08/how-to-move-to-the-uk-a-step-by-step-guide/   If you want to speak to a social worker you could try the local council.   HB

I need to know how to deal with Apple corp when it comes to making a complaint about drawing my children into downloading apps which uiltimately cost a lot of money.

 

 

My bank contacted me earleir today asking if two transaction were fraudulent ie am I aware of them? 

One for £44.99 and another £38.99.

Got them stopped, card cancelled, new one in the post.

 

One of the call handlers informed me that even if I change my visa debit card, Apple corp can still grab the money by applying to visa for my banking details.

Can that be case?

 

If anyone can advise me I would appreciate it .

 

Many Thanks

To be fair Apple have child accounts which have the ask to buy feature, this requires an authorised adult member to say yes to the purchase. Did you have that switched on?

 

Apple and Google offer the same games on their store. In app purchases are very common across all types of App from games to business. Purchase authorisation is covered in their T&Cs

 

I would suggest Apple will say you are responsible for letting the children access an account that could set this up without them understanding the implications.

That is quite upsetting. I will take a look at the article thoroughly.

Thanks. I will take a look to see whether the particular feature is switched on or not.

A while ago I read an article where Apple were in fact taken to task over their marketing/purchasing methods (wish I had kept a copy) The outcome of the article caused Apple to refund and compensate the complainants.

Thanks

Stephen

if it was a debit card then go get the sums back from your bank under CPA rules

and

cancelling a card does not remove the continuous payment arrangement

make sure you instruct your bank not to honour anymore.. without you express permission
