  1. Very interesting indeed! Just been reading through all 27 pages - albeit just UK26's posts since there's far too much to read! All the best though UK!
  2. Do any of these from the cigarette site make a difference to the legality of the seizure? Q. Do duty taxes always apply to imported cigarettes? A. As long as only one carton of cigarettes (200 cigarettes) is imported, you are not subjected to duty tax. In order to ensure that no duty taxes are applied, we ship out each carton separately to our customers. Q. How can the cigarettes on sale at Euro-cig.com be tax free? A. The cigarettes on sale at Euro-cig.com can be tax free because they are sold from a BONDED WAREHOUSE. This term is used to indicate goods which are not subjected to taxes in the source country. See: General Info Customs for further information. Q. In other words, will I commit a criminal offense if I buy more than for personal use? A. No. Purchasing in itself is not a criminal offense. A regular customs declaration is attached to each parcel stating the contents and the corresponding value. Since these mailed consignments for value, weight and dimensions are not subject to customs, the declaration is a regular importation request. Q. How are legitimate cigarettes sold at such low costs? A. Our prices meet those of duty free prices because we sell them close to production price. Therefore our prices are cheaper than your local retail price. These products are duty paid.
  3. Hey all, ordered 3 packs of 200 cigarettes from euro-cig.com a while ago, and they just shipped them on 18th August. Today, I received this letter through. I can't scan it but here it is, word for word, exactly how it appears: Enclosed, is this booklet: http://customs.hmrc.gov.uk/channelsPortalWebApp/downloadFile?contentID=HMCE_CL_000854 I plan to claim both condemnation and restoration on the basis that the cigarettes were shipped from the Netherlands, thus in the EU, and therefore there is no limit on the amount of cigarettes you can import for personal use. However, I am "particularly likely to be asked questions if I have more than 3200 cigarettes", to quote the Custom's website. I'll post back here with any developments.
  4. It's from the Law of Property Act 1925 s. 136
  5. Been doing a bit of Googling and can't really find much. However, it is clear that the DCA don't know there is a CCJ on the debt. If the debt has been sold on to another DCA though, from whoever entered the judgment against you, I did find this interesting peice of information: "the CCJ can't be reassigned, that is filed with the courts. It is the actual debt that seems to have been sold on". I'm not a litigation officer though, so I can't give a 100% answer on this.
  6. Nope, I don't expect a thing. It's up to you whether you want to or not, plenty of people on here choose to scan letters from DCAs onto here. If you don't want to, that's your decision. You asked if the letters were illegal, however you have not quoted what they actually say, so I can't answer your question.
  7. By all means scan a copy of the letter in and we can take a look at it.
  8. It doesn't matter if I am not a mod, regardless of that you shouldn't be double/triple/quadruple posting when there is an edit button and you have been made aware of it. As for the actual 'question', that would depend on a few things. Are the payments being made to the new DCA at the correct amount and on time, or to the OC? Also, what exactly do the letters say?
  9. Okay, is there a question in that? If not, I suggest to complain to the DCA. Also, please refrain from double posting, there is an 'edit' button for a reason.
  10. No, if a DCA is still calling you etc for payment arragements then I would say they wouldn't know it is subject to a CCJ. As for 'illegally' trying to increase the judgment amount, however, I refer you to one of Ell-enn's posts:
  11. In that case, yes. Again, that has already been answered in post 56:
