  5. Ok....actual balance due to the council.... £277 (£377 then) and the balliff wanted £450 + £40 to knock on her door lol what'll happen once i've cleared the debt? will the balliff chase her for their charges? even though they've done nothing?
  6. Ok, i thought i'd listen behind the sitting room door, to hear how he spoke and what his body language was like.... So my friend answered the door, stated that i had gone down to the council tax office and paid £100 off, he IMMEDIATLY said "your lying, the council dont accept money once it's been passed to us, the baliffs, now let me in and we'll sort something out" Of course, this is where i step in, his foot that was, again, between door and frame, so i promptly put abit weight behind the door with a little speed.....and he moved it, explained that's twice he's attempted to gain entry by force without a warrant, or police escort....then i stepped outside and shut the door, his whole attitude changed, aswell as his language towards me/her.... i asked what he'd feel like if i began to bully him ETC then got onto the real details.... I told him i'd just been down to the office and paid £100 cash to he cash desk (i did too) and he said the same as above "you didn't they can't..etc....". and grabbed his phone, "ok i'll call them" and he did, and they confirmed that i'd paid it, welll...that put him right in his place, i'd obviously called his bluff and won, now i had his tail between his legs, i told him to knock on the door all he wants, add all charges that he wants, but that i wasonly pyaing MY money to the council, and any charges he's made up....can be settled elsewhere/how. he then asked to 'just write on my notepad' on the drawer set in the hall way, well i'd caught straight onto this "let me in ploy" and told him no before she had a chance to say ok.... he then said, look your the householder, you have to answer, she said no, and he walked away saying i'll be back wanting more money ETC.... i've again been down today and paid a further £100 to the council and had a word with the women behind the desk, gave her an outline of what my friends going through with post natal depression, lack of money and taking her down to benefits place, she said she'd consult her manager and see what she can do.... so now the baliffs will be coming o the door for a £250 debt.... i THINK it's cheaper for them to give this one up isit not? any help again greatly appreciated as my backs starting to ache sleeping on her setee now lol Cheers people
  7. Help for a vaunrable friend if you please? Long story short, she got a council house with her then 'boyfriend' ready for parenthood, when it came to the crunch, he couldn't take it, and flew the nest, now she has suffered with post natal depression in a severe way since the both (not helped by an unhelpful boyfriend/father), and has fell behind with the rent a little (£250) and council tax by £450 (as stated by baliff letter, will confirm with council first). She's just been informed by her employer that her entitlement for sick pay has now ran out and she'll have to seek benefits, now to my knowledge, the benefits she's about to recieve, will JUST get her by yes? She's scared witless now, because last night a, in her words "a really big, mean looking guy knocked on the door, asking to come in, whilst putting one foot between the door and door-frame" Now i KNOW for a fact that he's seen she's a 22 year old, 5'3'' female with child and has tried forcing/bullying her into getting in, he told her 'it's costing you everytime i come, and i'll be back tomorrow, and the day after' but of course, i'm there this time, i'm 6'1'' bodybuilder, so we'll see how he likes the aggressive size difference/bullying tactics. i've temporarily moved in with her on the setee as she rang me in histerics last night after the visit thinking everything she'd bought would be getting taken for the sake of £450 (TBC) weather she let them in or not... So.... my question is, i'm about to send the above mentioned letter to both ballif company (Rossendales) and local authority.... am i ok to say at the door "your not getting in, i'm in the process of contacting your company and local authority, but also the police for your attempted forced entry yesterday, and any payment for this debt will be made directly to the council?" From what i've read above, i'm within my/her rights to do this, as he wont be breaking any protection act with regards to my friend as he wont be giving me any details of amount owed, or whom to? QUICK RESPONSE if possible guys, he's coming at 11 today.....but not getting in either way
  8. Thanks people great help Contacted trading standards.
  9. Well this place has went to pot since i left..... usually LOADS of people would offer their opionion or facts if they knew them...
  10. Hey, not been around for a few months, had a few life changing decisions to make....but i'm back... and WOW this place has changed lol anyway....
  11. Hi there, Instead of the missus being paid £800 onthe nose. She's been paid £8,140.14.... now when she said '£8k' to me i thought, oh they've added a 0 by mistake, but 140.14 has come from nowhere.... i've just taken the money from her account and put it in my savings to start earning me interest....and once they ask for it back...we do, minus the interest i've made. What would happen if we were to spend this money on paying off some of our debts? would it be a £20 a month repayment plan thing from her work or what? and what does the law state too? Cheers Aaron
  12. so nothing i can really do, other than claim for charges (AGAIN) 3rd time lol
  13. I'm TOTALLY outraged at this.... for the last year i've been living out my overdraft.....mostly has been fine.... but this month i was paid less than i was s'posed to...and only found out byt the time i was at £880 or my £900 overdraft... So i've stopped spending, but obviously couldn't cancel stuff that had already gone through, top-up,shopping and the like, or within 5 days of a DD coming out.... Well i've just went online to be faced with this, which is an absolute OUTRAGE.... my balance is now £1,074....bearing in mind that my OD is only £900....i've been charged the max 3 times too in one month.... so the £90 charges have come off my already overdrawn...overdraft lol (AARGH) Surely, if my overdraft has been reached, they can't allow me to go over, let alone £174 over!??!?!!?! have alook for yourself and let me know what i can/should/can't do as i'm SEVERLY pee'd off by this, my next months wages would have covered me for the downfall i had this month, but now i'm going to be paying £174 just to get back INTO my overdraft. (PS going down the high street later to open a parachute account which is going to be my main one until this is sorted out) PLEASE FOLLOW THE LINK TO THE .DOC FILE (anybody direct me to a good host for pics/docs ETC? cheers redeem file
  14. ^^ lol Oh well, atleast it's still a victory though ey lads and lasses SETTLED IN FULL (albeit in my MBNA account and not ME lol)
  15. Oh well. he phoned back and said they've not only credited the FULL amount back onto the account, but also the interest incurred (£110) so i have no grounds to claim. and to be fair i dont now lol would have been nice to have £800 extra to go on holiday with though lol
  16. ARGH so there's no way round this?
  17. URGENT URGENT just hadhim on the phone, he's saying that because i requested in my first letter that i wanted the charges taken off my MBNA, that he has put them on there (later than the letter said), he's now saying that MBNA 'would prefer' to take it off the account to get the debt cleared (that little bit faster) and be done with me so to speak. now i've said well you didn't do what the letter had said, and so i sent you the letter stating that i wanted ALL chargessent to me (letter above) and he's gone to speak with the 'collections team#' what can i do/say? because he's saying that because they are putting the rest of the charges on the account, i have no grounds for a claim... .HELP
  18. Hmm....Interesting.... Phoned up the number given in my last letter from them, and asked to speak with 'steve bailey' who was the one that sent the letter, Young lassy on the phone said can i help, he's off today, so i explained the whole situation, and she said she'll get intouch with the person dealing with all his queries, anyway, a few hours later i get a call from this 'gareth' that has been spammed all over the board recently...... Explained why i rang him, i said "Yeah, just thought i'd ring and find out if you recieved the reply to the letter i sent which was signed for on the 26th of may, and if you'd replied, as i'm on money claim now and it's asking if i've tried everything i can do, to resolve the matter without getting the courts involved. He replied "well i dont think there's a need for the courts, what i'll do for you is i'll have a word with a few people about a few things, discuss it over with my boss, and get back to you by 10am tomorrow morning, is that ok with you?" of course that aint a problem.....so just waiting to hear what i get tomorrow.... anybody want to put bets on? I'll give you 7/1 they'll offer just over half what i requested lol
  19. Fewf! Thought i'd sent it to the wrong blumin company there lol
  20. Nice one, will phone in a moment, once i gather my thoughts EDIT: Just remembered i sent it recorded, checked up on it, and it was delivered on 26/05/06, but has name as 'bank of america' (see pic) is that right?
  21. well..... it's 8 days over now..... i'd LOVE TO TAKEM to court for it, but i'm on holiday on monday and have no money (other than spenders_ til i get paid at the end of the month! Sohuld i try ringing the guy on my previous letter telling them that if i dont have cheque for full amount by the time i get back then once i'm paid i'll be putting a claim forward?
  22. Sent today lol I maynot be the most elegant of people, nor the most subtle, but i think this has got my point across?
  23. Hmm... Recieved a letter saying that they dont agree blah blah blah but as a gesture of goodwill they 'HAVE' credited my account with £300 (of the original £800)....yet i've checked online AND on my statement i got today.... and they havn't lol What to do now?
  24. Yeah the actual naming of 'commision' i thought that if they took money from you, they had to state EXACTLY what it was for? and why it's NEVER happened before until now?
  25. Can anybody answer MY questions?? Cheers aaron
