My advice, dudes, (FWIW) is not to panic.

 

Lloyd's case was a fluke win for them, so much so it even took THEM by surprise!

 

You should be able to get a copy of the T&Cs from your local branch. Unless they've run out copies after being inundated with requests for them, lol.

 

I've lost count of the number of the things I've chucked in the bin, seems they update them every five minutes. :cool:

Hi blue , we seem to be at the exact same stage. I also received acknowledgement from Wragge & Co. today also signed be a trainee.

I think they've took on a load of YTS trainees to cope with the influx of new claims. I wouldnt worry too much about the Lloyds case , it can't set a precedent in a County Court. Good luck with your claim.

    • if you go to the dwp website there is an online SAR you can fill in to get all the details.   here is your old thread mentioned above  
    • Thanks for the advice, I will call the council Tuesday morning and see what they say, and then send the I/E form.   Something doesn't sit right with me on the whole thing.    I found an email I had sent to my MP early 2008 detailing the problems we were having with tax credits, and I go into great detail of our situation and  employment history.   Work was sporadical and I am pretty sure we were on benefits throughout one of those whole periods (I even had a post on here about the bank charges problem)   In fact most of those time periods mentioned in post 4 there was little work. Worst 2 years of our lives! I dont know how to find records of benefits though for that long ago.
    • I won a prize in a Raffle operated by an organisation holding an event at a local venue. The prizes were displayed on video screens in the venue and on a printed list by the person selling the tickets.  The prize I won was stated as "4 (four) weekend VIP tickets to Birmingham Pride"   - I did not open the envelope until the following day - it contained 3 (three) vouchers for weekend "Premium" tickets to Birmingham Pride (Premium being a lower priced ticket than VIP).   A friend who was at the event with me had the phone number of one of the organisers - there being no other obvious way to contact them - the person confirmed the prize was stated as 4 tickets, it was supposed to have been changed to 3, but that it had not been done.   I considered that this was suspicious, I can accept it might not have been possible to change the wording on the video screens, but the person selling the tickets could have clarified this verbally, and could have altered the "4" on the printed sheet to show "3".    As "compensation" I was offered free entry to their next event. That would be £7 per person (if they intended to include anyone else I was attending with) which in no way equates in financial or entertainment value of the Pride event, which has tickets priced £88.00, for two days of live acts including Marc Almond, Faithless and Human League.   I would like to know if the offer of prizes as originally stated and the exchange of money for entry in the raffle constitutes an intent to create legal relations - and as such, that I am entitled to 4 (four) VIP tickets (not Premium) and nothing else other than a cash alternative of equal value to the expected prize.   Incidentally, the vouchers state to send an email to an email address at birminghampride.com – which I did several weeks ago, but have not received any response.   I assume even if the Pride organisers fail to respond, the raffle organiser is still liable.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
