    • if your loan is an unsecured loan, but you own a home were they to make you bankrupt, could you lose the home....... .............   i will assume you are talking about your wife's debts? as you've said YOU don't own a home ?  
    • Shops at the retail park beside me were mobbed today, last week the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh was as busy as it ever has been.
    • I have a loan with Commsave dx, the deductions come straight from my wages. When you join you tell them how much you want to save either weekly or monthly and you authorise them take deductions from your wages towards your savings account with them, same thing apply's when you have a loan with them.
    • I went from Virgin Media to Sky Q earlier this year as I wasn't a great fan of Tivo and was keen to try Sky Q.   When it was installed, I was offered the chance to replace my aging (ten year old) dish which I accepted.   In the last few days, I've come to the conclusion that Sky Q isn't for me and that I'd ideally like to downgrade it at the end of my contract to go back to using my old Sky+ HD box, which I still have.   Much to my surprise, I subsequently found out that the LNB on my dish would not be compatible as Q uses a special "wide band" LNB and the older boxes do not.   I contacted Sky to confirm this, which they did.   They also told me that there would be nothing they could do and that if I wanted to continue using my dish with my older box then I would have to pay to get it re-fitted myself which, after some investigation, would cost me at least £150 pounds.   The issue of future compatibility wasn't mentioned anywhere in the literature or the official Sky Q contract, but the Sky employee I was talking to agreed that it could present a problem and said that he would pass it "up the ladder" to see if the wording could be changed to better explain it to prevent any future problems - all the while telling me there was nothing they could do for me specifically.   I understand that I'm getting the service I paid for, which I have no issue with.   I understand that I'm only loaning the equipment and that it has to be returned at the end of the contract.   That I also have no problem with.   The contract also states that the dish becomes mine at the point of installation as well, which is also fine.   Basically, Sky have provided the service stated in the contract.   My problem with this is that Sky must clearly know that many people use, and still use, older boxes.   They still sell viewing cards for these older boxes, so that in itself should be enough to prove that they are aware of the compatibility issues between the two pieces of hardware.   Should there not have been even a small advisory akin to "Customers please note: Sky Q dishes are not compatible with older hardware" ?   By choosing to omit this information,  it not only prevented me from making an informed decision at installation, as I could have apparently asked for what's called a "Hybrid LNB" which would be compatible with older hardware, but it will also leave me significantly out of pocket at the end of the contract.   Is there anything in this ?.  Can I challenge this in any capacity ?.   Ideally, I'd like them to let me out of the Sky Q contract so I can downgrade to the Sky+ HD box I own, but I accept this will likely not be possible.   I'd be interested in your thoughts.   Thankyou.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

The Ga11ery modelling Agency

Recommended Posts

This people did the same to me

 

This happened to my i contacted my bank they tried to help but they told them how we want free pictures how sad we paid 2500 for pictures can you imagine this people have no hearts or souls

 

I was looking for a modeling Agency .

 

i found the ga11ery modeling agency i made an appointment

 

i was invited they made me pay 50pounds as a deposit told me it would be refunded. told us it was a test photoshoot to see if we would make it on their team . I was there with a few other people who had come in .

 

After the test photoshoot they told us to give them 20minutes for the head office was still making the final discussion After 20 minutes we were called in by Zain who told me i had performed very and mostly talked to my dad because he had come to support me .

 

He then told me i had won a GAP contract . He then told mydhad i was among the only two who had got this place . He told us to secure the position we had to pay 25000 pounds 

 

On that money i was going to get the money back in a month because i will be earning 6 modeling jobs pay month . He then made us sign a contract for Gap

 

reaching the train we see no GAP contract we then call the bank

 

we had paid using Hilex they claim they cannot help us but the money was still pending .

 

we then went the next day to see them the Ga11ery they opened told us they are just a Photo studio and they acted as if they didn't know what we were talking about

 

we went to the police station they said we have to report online i reported the case . No information yet .

 

we tried to call Ga11ery many times no one answer the last time i called them the lady picked up and was like honey its a sc@m . I have voice recording when i talked to one of them named Taylor .

 

The last time i went there was a boy coming out with his dad having the same package they gave me . They are still sc@ming people they need to be taken down

 

i have lost all my long time savings no one has helped me neither my bank nor the police

Yes.

Have you reported to action fraud?

I have but they need enough people to log a report for them to investigate further.

If we can get enough people together then we can seek legal advice.

the other people sent them evidence and the Gallery showed them evidence that we had purchased something that we had and agreement which we had not made .

 

Was not there .

 

So they took the money

did you ref that actionfraud agreed it was a scam and gave you a crime ref number to use and you gave BC these bits of info?

or simply complained it was unfair and not what you signed up for?

 

it's unusual for bC to get these scams wrong.

No reputable modelling agancy asks for money,

they pay for you to get your portfolio done and then make their money placing you in work.

 

They may take a big slice of your income from then on 

but it will all be properly written into a contract you can take away and read before you accept, they arent going to run off.

 

As soon as anyone asks for money up front then you should have alarm bells ringing in your head

 

I know this warning is too late for you 

but anyone reading this thread who was thinking about an offer of modelling should take heed.
