    • 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

Hmm very odd I wouldn't have anything of that sort with Barclays, how ever I did have credit cards with Them long ago though another SB case perhaps though I don't know how that would tie in

Wrong Mr listless ..I like that . . Anyway no one could have died without me knowing only my mum's relatives live here all my dad's side are dead and long gone...

 

However now that did spring a bulb on my mind ....

 

earlier last year I did get a letter about PPI from Barclays,

I called them to say they were mistaken I didn't have PPI , to find out that it was for a catalogue account in the group apparently I had PPI on that as it was barely used , I said I wasnt interested

 

the woman was adamant and saying I do not have to give any details only the reference numbers on the letters and if it due they will send me a cheque addressed in my name, u smelled a rat and declined it ( one of the catalogues tried to do me over once while I wasn't in the country ), and she said she take me off the system and I wouldn't receive any further communication.

That was probably that entry in the first part of 2019,

 

The new ones use another initial still one of my initials Though ,

since no more PPI and no relatives ( unless someone took fancy on me)..

most bizzare but who knows I only hope it's not one of those pests

Yes the letter was from Barclays early last year before the PPI deadline ,but no letter for the 2 latest searches, and I have referred back to that saved copy of the credit file from 2014 and I have had a Barclaycard with those initials  and the search btw is from Barclays apparently

Thanks again dx100uk,

I guess you may be correct but why would they run searches in November last year and again this year after I specifically told them I wasn't interested in pursuing this , and they told me it will be closed at the terminating of the call and I would receive any more communication . Besides I thought this PPI claiming deadline has passed now it was on TV a lot last year. The reason being I have had cc from them .

if it is a plevin refund, it's not a  PPI reclaim, it's the original creditor paying back what they have been mandated to do by the FCA.

 

Customers initialising complaints about PPI mis-selling yes did cease last august, however that doesn't absolve creditors from not paying back the total unlawful commission they might have gained If they got a commission backhander of greater than 50% for selling the policy to the customer.

 

the process of them wanting to give this back will be somewhat automated as the money will be sitting there and it's yours.

To whoever sent you the letter in post #1...Cabot or Ruthbridge ?

 

The only point I would add to end of the letter is that they update all the files with your current address.

 

Andy

I

Fear I have made a mistake with the SB  letter i posted ,

i  edited the letter as to what you said to add but opened up the file now to see its different auto correct / spell check i suspect has changed it


instead of " update all the files with my  current address"

what is there is completely different must be something that i had saved in to the checker it says

only update your records as to the above only ,


shall i print out another letter and post again ?

or is sending 2 letters no good?

Cabot are liars, the debt is statute barred. Nothing they can say or do can change that.

 

As above though, you must update them with your current address,

Many thanks for your reply , shall I send the SB letter again(only sent it yesterday) shall i send the same again to ruthbridge by adding that text to the bottom of the letter? if so  should it be in the main body of the letter or as a post script after the digitally printed name ? i was thinking of something like this,

please send all communication to my address as above on this letter please update all your files with my current address.update all your files with my current address,
should add i do not admit liability for this debt too? and re- send the SB letter

Barclays dca Lowell
 I only added i do not admit liability , but Andy said to include a note at the end of the letter to state update all their files with my current address , but spell checker has changed to "update your records as to the above only" at the bottom of the letter ,

 

my current address at the top is correct as they sent this letter to this address ,but Andy said they are known to send letters to previous addresses afterwards, ie: court papers as i didn't inform them when i moved away all those years ago

they have your correct address at the top.

if they do issue then that's all you need to have done to contest things.

 

stop worrying.

 

it extremely rare for lowells to sell debts on again, esp to a riva... the comment about it being a 'catalogue' doesn't fit with anything barclays, you must have heard wrong.

Thanks again dx100uk,

Only worried as if they issue claim I wouldn't been know till they show up at my door this is my partner's place it's her property don't won't them coming out of the blue.thats all .

 

About Barclays I thought  the woman on the phone said the catalogue was owned by the group. 

But the cc' s were owned by Lowell's and when it was showing on the CRA back then was showing as Lowell's and Barclays too had entries but was showing as settled for the same accounts possibly because they sold them?

Why does the SB letter say without prejudice ?

Excuse my ignorance, but I have thought that means can't be used latter as evidence in a court ?

Only because Google said so didn't think too much of it till now.

 

Just found out wescot is also owned by cabot

wetcloths are not owned by cabot.

 

doesn't matter it can't be used in court.

if the debt is SB'd not even a judge can unbar a debt.

As I was working myself to death trolling the net past few days I came across this 

 

https://www.cabotcm.com/en/news/cabot-credit-management-plc-completes-acquisition-of-wescot-as-it-secures-a-major-outsourcing-contract/

 

Btw I managed to locate few of my other saved credit files looks like Cabot have done traces till at least 07 /2015,  and my last default 12 /2010 

 

 Is there anyway I can find out if anybody has initiated claims against me by contacting a court..

 

I know I know I do need as telling off but I remember those days well

 

I couldn't even afford payments for my long list of prescriptions not much better now ,

but was mentally a little bit better till last week.

yes ok sorry I forgot that acquisition, but it hasn't changed that wetcloths don't 'only' chase debts for cabot now.

they also have other clients.

the sb letter goes to cabot the debt owners or as you have their dogs..ruthbridge.

 

as for courts....

dca's don't contact courts..if you mean if they put in a court claim, that latterly resulted in the court sending out a claimform.

and without any contact, the claimant gaining a judgement

these would be shown on your credit file for 6yrs.

 

initiating a claim...will result in the above so you'd know about it, should it not have been defended, of which..ofcourse you must thus

know about!!

 

and don't forget anyorch's post correcting me earlier.
