  1. Lowedges / Greenhil. Just had a visit from a British Gas rep (I. D. Shown) informing me that we had to make an appointment to have a Smart meter fitted , as it was now compulsory, told him he was wrong an it wasn't mandatory...didn't like that.... Anyway just a warning to all in this area as this man was quite overbearing bordering on intimidating. ...stand your ground he has no legal right to enter your home ( not that he asked to) .
  2. Thanks for your comments Dave ..sorry for late reply been a little busy trying to sort this!
  3. Hi .. I know a number of people with legal experience read these pages and was hoping for some useful advice ! Basic facts :- 1. Whilst living with my daughter, a former partner obtained a credit card without her knowledge or consent (in her name) and ran up debt to about £5000....... we believe to create the illusion it was legitimate, used it, and made monthly payments (presumably in cash) so he was able to increase the credit limit to the level he did. .. this only came to light when the relationship ended 2. To cut along story short, the credit card company were not remotely interested in this fraud + just wanted their money. Anyway eventually they sold this "bad debt" on to PRA group ltd ( if not familiar with this company they make money trying to collect bad debt buying these debts for a fraction what is owed typically 10% of there value) 3. Anyway, eventually they (PRA) realise she's not paying , so put it into county court via the online method so it ends up I think Northampton County court ? We ask for it to moved to Sheffield , they object but we get our way ..I presume this is done to wear people down so they just pay up 4.By now Covid 19 has kicked off so told transferred to Sheffield County Court but it could be some time before it's listed so wait to hear from them... 5. Hear from Sheffield county court April 27th 2021 , two letter in fact, one dated Jan 2021 saying is going to be have to be done by telephone and will be held Feb 2021 ...and secondly a Judgement against us saying because we did not participate /make contact the judgement has been made allowing their claim to succeed in full... As part of the judgement it says that we failed to lodge any defence documents but as part of their claim on the initial court paper work (forget the form no) you are asked why you do not believe you owe this money which was all filled in and sent back within the stated time limits.. 6. I know that the judgement can be "set aside" but the fee of £255 seems excessive for something that's happened without you being at fault..... it been suggested that a "Statutory Declaration " could be submitted to the county court but I'm not sure how it should be worded to cover what's happened Anyway thanks for reading! Any helpful comments welcome
  4. Just found out this morning that my elderly neighbour Had a visit around 6pm last night from a " Nurse" who was supposedly collecting for the Doctor + Nurses in the NHS....When told they had no cash in the house said they wanted to see their debit card so they could set up a direct debit.. she /they very pushy, another "nurse" was hovering at the bottom of the path ….. Of course this COULD be legitimate but feels like a scam to me... as we had no callers...anyone else been approached ? Description of the one who came to the door White woman in 30's with blue " NHS style" dress
  5. Right Thanks to all who replied / commented
  6. Hi Thanks...….. I presume it must be registered somewhere as accident damaged, I think I would avoid a car that had been in a crash when I could choose one that hadn't at the same price.
  7. My Partner had a car accident last month , where the other Driver involved admitted it was there fault entirely The Repair to our car was authorised within 1 1/2 hours by her insurance company which was Good However now the car is back with us (It took two attempts to get it right!) I believe surely ? that we are entitled to compensation, because clearly to me the car is now devalued To test the water I took it to a dealer to part exchange against another car...….. there reaction being didn't want it or would only give a low trade value as they would have to "trade it on" "Her insurance" say that now the car has been repaired it had the same value as it had before the accident ..is this a "try on" on there part ? would welcome comments from anyone who has been in the same position. Thanks!!
  8. Thank you suzyoo + nikki-red ….Love to know why most people called it the silver slipper though!?
  9. Hello..Thanks for that....I take it the silver slipper was just what the locals called it as I can't find it listed on the Sheffield history pub name pages.Thanks..
  10. Hi don't know if this will be any use you, but I do remember when "Rav" was wanting to retire he was informed that he didn't qualify for a uk pension + they told him to apply for one back home in Italy despite the fact that he had lived the majority of his life/paid taxes here in the uk … Anyway probably more of interest to you is I think the Sheffield star covered this story..... I'm not 100% certain but I think there was a picture along with the article of "Rav " stood outside the frontage of the garage Think this was 1981 to 1983 ish but not sure.. Good luck!
  11. Can anybody recall a pub, apparently on Cemetery road Sheffield Called the " The Glass Slipper" This wasn't the actual name of the public house but what everyone called it I'm told it had a female landlord + reputation for serving "after hours" + was popular with "the boys in blue" for a pint after their late shift ended (allegedly)! If so what was the pubs proper name + whereabouts on Cemetery Rd was it ? Thanks! (on behalf of 2 elderly gentlemen "going mad" trying to remember it !)
  12. Hi Cyclone .Thanks for this....Have now "deep scanned" the computer and found nothing at all to worry about, Hopefully! .but a little disappointed that the Avg failed to stop this happening in the first place. Thanks again Bob
  13. Hi...just been looking at a webpage (briskoda skoda owner advice blogs) when I followed a link to some info I wanted.... but it took me to a webpage (/dd2r90fatcfoi.cloudfront.net/index.html) which Locked me to the page it took me to ...telling me in aloud voice that the computer was infected with malware + that I had to "register" to remove it ...unable to close the page or navigate away …. I switched off at the mains (pulled plug out of socket straight away) I have AVG antivirus the paid for version, but it did nothing to intervene... I've now scanned the computer with this but it finds nothing.. anything to worry about do you think ? what I'm concerned about really is that It knew where I was (Sheffield) and also gave an I P address Thanks Bob
  14. Spotted a sign yesterday in the grass verge on Bochum parkway (mostly obscured by the long grass!) stating that the grass was being left uncut for "wildlife management" I think the term was.....So I take it that the open grass areas either side of Greenhill parkway which are now more than a foot high will be part of this scheme as well + not cut?...
