    • Read the terms of the old legal cover.  Does it not still cover legal issues, that arose when the policy was in force, subject to a time period ?    And please note that most legal expenses policies require you to notify the Insurers within a certain period of the legal issue arising.   Failure to notify the Insurers of the legal issue within the  time limit noted in  the policy terms and conditions , would result in you not being able to claim.  This is because the Insurers would want to examine the legal issues and see whether they were able to resolve them, before there was any deterioration, which could lead to a greater exposure to costs.   Ask your brokers to find out for you, if you are not sure.   Brokers will often switch Insurers when policies are due for renewal, so their customers receive the best option available.  Had they known about a legal expenses claim and any potential loss of cover, they may have left you with the same Insurers, if the brokers still dealt with that Insurers.   Brokers can lose arrangements they have with certain Insurance underwriters and they then switch to an Insurers they can still use.   And the renewal documents issued will have noted the change of Insurers, so the policyholder would have had opportunity to reject the renewal offer and ask the brokers to stay with the previous Insurers.
    • Hi.   I'm afraid I can't help you to write a letter about something that complicated, maybe other people can.   Could I just ask please if you've complained to the GMC twice as your post seems to indicate?   HB

    • I'm not too familiar with the tiers, so excuse the question - but haven't they paid tier 1 due to annual turnover?    I just did a test on the ICO website to see what a company has to pay and it doesn't seem to say anything about what sort of processing they do, it just asks about how many employees a company has and what turnover.     Did they need to do more than that?  Is it not about the fee tiers?  I see APCOA, for example, is also tier 1.  ParkingEye are tier 3.
    • Question-    Can the Governments track & trace app really work  ?   There is news that the app has crashed,  but let us presume that the app is working.   In the building where I work, due to the construction, my mobile phone signal is not very good, unless I am sat near a window.  In an average day, I am normally sat at the same desk,  but I may move around the building for socially distanced meetings or for other reasons e.g toilet break, making a drink.    I don't normally have my phone switched on all day and I may not take it with me, if I move to another area of the building.  But let us presume that I have my phone switched on, with Bluetooth  swtiched on, so this track & trace app can work .   What is the working distance of Bluetooth on most phones and could the app cause too many alerts for people to self isolate ?       If you have one person who is tested as having Covid-19 sat in an office socially distanced in one corner, but has colleagues in the same office,  will this app think everybody sat in the same office has had contact with this one person for more than 15 minutes ?  This could lead to a lot staff suddenly having to leave their workplace to go into self isolation.   And what about visitors to workplaces ?  If employers are not recording time/date and movement information, the contractors phone may cause staff in a building to receive the app alerts, even if they have not had any direct contact for the 15 minutes.   I can see this track & trace app causing a lot of disruption in many workplaces.

User applied for a Bank Account

Something didnt add up and someone has put a CIFAS Marker in their name. Maybe Halifax... Who knows.

 

I dont think someone has stolen this users Identity but unless they are able to get someone to assist with communicating with us - We may never know the full extent.

I have translated post one a wee bit better now.

 

yes sounds like they have a CIFAS marker preventing them for opening an account

 

you need to look at the sites Santander referred too to find out why

or send CIFAS an SAR to get the details of why the marker in on your credit file.


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

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