  1. Hi there, Sorry, I think I've made things a bit confusing. The HCEO visited exactly a year after the claimant LOST a separate case against us when he trid to con us out of £12,000. He actually admits twice in his own witness statement that he knew he had given us the wrong finance agreement. I mentioned this to highlight the fact that this person is quite happy to pursue customers using, to put it politely 'misrepresentation'. He should never have won the first case and the fact that he admits wrondoing proves this. At the time of the second court case, he knew that I had not made any paymen
  2. Hi, Thanks for the replies. I'm afraid I stopped paying in October 2009. The CCJ was from the previous year and all payments were up to date until my mother died (I may have made a couple of further payments shortly after, but my bank statements are incomplete). I first posted about this case in 2008. The claimant tried to claim over 2k in costs and the case was for an indemnity fee which he claimed I owed him. I disputed the claim on the grounds that I was not given a copy of the agreement and it was an unfair penalty (it was connected to a car loan) but I lost the case. The charges were ev
  3. Hi there, Last week a HCEO visited my house and stuck a Notice of Seizure and Walking Possession Agreement through the letterbox. He did not gain entry to the property. It was over a CCJ that I had not kept up repayments on (my mother died on the day I made the last payment and I just fell apart). What I'd like to know is: can they 'seize' my good without peaceful entry? (I have no intention of signing the WPA). The list said 'all household goods' and included the fridge and cooker. Can they also charge what they like for pushing two pieces of paper through my letterbox ? (£1351.46 to be exa
  4. Hi, Yes, I arranged the funeral. My mother stopped using the bank account in 2008 after I gave appointeeship to social services. The reason for this is because she had daily carers and they needed access to money for food etc. as she suffered from dementia and would often throw things away. I could not get across more than two or three times a week, therefore was happy to allow my mother's council's social services department to deal with her finances. They also tried to hang onto a small amount of money but relented and gave me half when I threatened them with the police, believe it or not!
  5. Hi, Just wondering if anyone has views on banks hanging on to money in deceased customer's accounts. My mother died in 2009 leaving less than £3000 in her Barclays account. As her daughter, I expected to close the account (I did not know how much was in it) as I didn't want it left open for fraudulent purposes. Barclays refused to say how much cash was in the account, but assured me that upon receipt of ID, the death certificate etc. they would close the account and transfer funds into my bank account. I have one sister who I have lost touch with, but I gave the bank her details and last kno
  6. Hi there, Thanks honeybee and papasmurf. I have contacted the other side and asked them to correct the information, but they have ignored my request so far.I have spoken to the ET and they have suggested that I put the issue in writing and they will respond. I am unsure of some of the correct details as the rep is refusing to provide the correct contact details for the organisation. He has already told the chairman at an earlier CMD that the case is not being handled by my partner's employers directly (they and their HR rep are named on the ET3 as 'contacts'), but by someone from head
  7. Hi honeybee, I am representing my partner. It is the Respondent and their rep I am having problems with. Obviously, I am not going to name anyone in an open forum. Hope this helps, Cheers, Tallullah
  8. Hi There, I’m representing my partner in a tribunal claim against a particularly unpleasant employer. To cut a long story short, they have given incorrect contact details on their ET3 (which was handed in late for no good reason, but accepted anyway). I believe that these details have been entered as a delaying tactic. I have been sifting through mountains of information and have rang both ACAS and my local tribunal for answers to the following questions: Is it OK for the Respondent to give contact details which they know are inaccurate on the ET3? Can they
  9. Hi, Thanks. Have added link to my favourites and will have a good look at it. Of the three who attended, number one showed ID, number two skulked around trying to hide his face as I filmed on my mobile He was not on register, and isn't on now unless he has changed his name, number three, who was truly the most obnoxious piece of s**t I have ever come across in my life, claimed that he wasn't even a bailiff and had his own limited company (I have some of this on film). He was on the register and his employers was named as Jacobs. He is still on the register now, but his employer field is blan
  10. Hi, Yes I have, and it's very interesting! I am planning to use some of this info in my reply to the LGO. I have emails from the council saying that I should 'contact the bailiffs and arrange to pick up the vehicle'. I told them to get stuffed (politely, of course) and get their henchmen to return the vehicle to my mother-in-law at THEIR cost. They did so, but feebly claimed that it was only as 'a gesture of goodwill'. Both the council and the LGO do not appear to have a clue about illegal levying of goods. No wonder the criminal bailiffs run rings around them. They even manage to make these
  11. Hi, Thanks for that, I will SAR Jacobs and the council a.s.a.p. The reply from the LGO is full of inaccuracies (They claim that Jacobs took the goods immediately because my husband had told them he was closing the business and they 'feared' they wouldn't get paid, which is an outright lie). The LGO also mention the fact that it would have been better if the bailiffs had contacted the DVLA before illegally seizing my mother-in-laws vehicle, which was parked outside the factory, but the decision to release the car and waive the fees 'appears reasonable in the circumstances'! They only did this
  12. Hi, Thanks PT and Hallowitch, I'm about to leave for work so won't be back online til around 7.30. Will take all your good advice on board and act on it (emailed the council this morning under the FIA to find out which firm of bailiffs got the tender which they advertised in January 2010. Couldn't help chuckling when I noticed that the new contract started on April Fool's day). All of the fees were done on the same day. They simply turned up and handed my husband a bill for £1,647.67. He offered to pay the original amount plus the attendance fees which came to around £700 but the council r
  13. Hi, just tried to reply to PT's question but was distracted and got logged out! Yes. I have a breakdown of costs. They are as follows: Rates due: £443.12 Visit Fee: £24.50 Schedule 5 Header Charge: £24.50 Removal Fees: £150.00 Attendance/Van: £150.00 Walking Possession: £12.00 Levy Fee: £39.00 Quickfit Removals, low loader for oven: £220.00 Eden Transport, for other goods: £70.00 Electrician, disconnection of the oven: £75.00 Bailiff Waiting Fees: £439.55 Total: £1,647.67 Now for the bad news. The reason I was distracted was because I have just received the
  14. Hi, Tne vilest of the three has no employer listing, but is still registered, the one who claimed to be in charge is working for Phoenix Commercial Collections Ltd. and the other numpty, who tried to hide his car number plate, has never been traced on the register, although I have an email from Jacobs claiming he was a registered bailiff. Tallulah
  15. Hi, Yes, I haven't posted for a while as I am still waiting to see what the LGO are going to do. I was also a bit suspicious about giving too much information as I know bailiffs use forums like this. The fact that all three bailiffs who closed down my husband's business (including one who could never be traced on the register) have now 'left' Jacobs has cheered me up no end. Tallulah
