  1. Hi folks. Just a quick one. I've recently been made redundant, and Rosendale's bailiffs are swift on their heels coming to collect debts. The problem is I owe money to three creditors: HMRC, a parking fine, and a court fine. Rosendales are collecting the debts on behalf of all three clients. My question is, is this allowed? I thought a single agency can only chase an individual for the debts of one client; or have I misconstrued information somewhere? We're struggling terribly financially at the moment and Rosendale's agents are visiting at least once or twice a week. Three diff
  2. Cheers Smokiejoe I'll contact them and see what they're able to do. That's a very good idea. Thanks to you and everyone again for your help. Wishing you all a merry Christmas! Craig
  3. Hi smokiejoe Many apologies. I think I've got the department names wrong. Yeah, it is HMRC. My daughter turned 20 in November, so no luck there. I'm just so angered that my family had to rely on food banks and family hand-outs for several months over summer, and the only income we had was £50.00 a week mistakenly given by Tax Credits. I'm angry that they want a few hundred pounds of payment we apparently not entitled to, but we cannot get the back-pay of benefits they neglected to pay us. I'm totally dismayed and really upset about all this. It really is br
  4. Hi Sparks_ She had been told by a friend there might be some way she can get more affordable scrips but we had no idea where to start. Looks like this could be exactly what her mate was referring to. You're a star! I've printed it off, and we'll get it filled and posted for tomorrows mail collection. Many sincere thanks for this. Craig
  5. Hi martin. Yes my daughter does get DLA but not PIP. My wife has been told she's not fit enough to claim JSA but she's not ill enough to claim DLA. I now have to pay for her prescriptions in full. She has around 12 items of medication per month, and it's costing another £80+ a month to get these. Seems to me that being in work full time is proving harder to get by than being out of work. Well, that's providing a person does get the benefits they're entitles to. It's all so downright disheartening and frustrating. Many thanks, Craig
  6. Hi there dx100uk Yes. I am working now but I'm the only one who has an income out of three of us (wife, disabled daughter, and me). We receive no benefits of any kind. I earn £18,000 a year. During the time the DWP failed to deal with our join ESA claim, we accrued debt with rent and Council Tax. I'm now paying £600 rent every month, and £200 council tax. Add to this the DWP want to take out £320.00 per month from my income. This will literally leave my family with about £200 to live on for a whole calendar month. We're struggling without this demand from DWP as it is. Thanks
  7. Hi all. I'm hoping some of you caggers will be able to relate to my experience and hopefully provide some advice. I've received notification from DWP that I owe about £500 in overpayment of tax credits. A brief overview of the issue: We were claiming £53 per week while I was working. My wife was at home looking after our disabled daughter. I ended my employment some time in April of this year, and attempted to apply for JSA. I was advised that my wife would be better applying for ESA and having me included on the application, which she did. We informed DWP that I was no longer
  8. Hi all Just want to thank everyone for their responses. I've got a lot of valuable information from you all as to how I should progress. In answer to the questions; yes it is Council Tax and we're running several paid accounts which are all up to date. We pay a monthly fee via DD, and they even take out 15% of my wife's income from the bank. It just seems that as soon as we get one unknown account up and running for repayment, Rossendales seem to magically summon another in its place. It's got so complicated that we just don't know where we stand anymore, or what, exactly we're pay
  9. Dear all. I'm hoping someone can help me with this one. We've had a history with this business for many years. They seem to magically make new accounts appear from nowhere and up to now we have several. Anyway, this latest letter announcing a new unpaid account of more than £1000 has got me very angered. It's basically a letter threatening us to pay up or go to prison for up to 90 days. Here's a taster of the letter's contents: "As you have failed to make payment arrangements on this account with us, the next stage in the recovery procedure is to formally report this to th
  10. Hi all I thought the drama with VP Parking Solutions Ltd had been played out, since I've not heard from them for at least a couple of weeks. However, they're still hanging on like a reluctant piece of arse-fluff. It seems from latest correspondence received from VP Parking solutions, that they're well aware of the advice given to their persuees via websites like this, and they may well know that I personally visit this forum, as the latest letter from their solicitor attests: Roxburghe Debt Collectors Client AS Securit-T "We are fully aware of anecdotal inform
  11. Hi Folks This VP Car Parking Solutions Ltd, are bloody irritating the s**t out of me now. I've had another two letters from them in two days, basically saying the same stuff: PAY NOW OR ELSE! I've been reading a few of the threads on this forum and elsewhere and it seems many of these car parking solutions companies have very close associations with oneanother. Do Roxbridge Solicitors/Roxburgh Solicitors/VP Parking Solutions/Total Parking all share the same offices? If this keeps up I'm considering counter-suing them for harrassment. If these are nothing but invoices -not forget
  12. Hi everyone. I received a letter (charge) from a car parking solutions company a week or so ago. I thought it was a joke to be honest. And today, a week or two later, I've received another from the same company. I've never heard from them before, but they're threatening me with court and bailiffs if I don't cough up £197.00 for a parking charge they say the'd issued me in 2008! Yes, you read it correctly...2008. As I said earlier, I thought it was a joke, but alas no, they are very serious. I ignored the previous letter but this one is personally signed by their General Manager
  13. Hi The payments were taken directly from my bank account using my Visa Debit card. If I have to change the card it'll mean changing my current account also. I've never fallen foul of any scams before so I can only imaging how many unsuspecting people have fallen for this trick. With the amounts of complaints about this company on this site and on the Compliantsboard and others, I just cannot understand why the authorities haven't yet done anything about them. Their methods are so blatently f r a u d u l e n t and underhand that any where else in europe they'd be in the dock by now and doing
  14. Hi there Got my bank statement today and was browsing it and saw two payments had been taken and at the same time. Quickcreditscore £19.95 and Rewardsnow £19.95. I couldn'y understand where they came from and thought I'd better check my previous statements. I was amazed to see that these exact payments had been taken every single month from February totalling about £200. I cannot ever remember having any contact from this company and feel duped. I've searched my in and outbox on e-mail to see if I'd registered for anything (even my [problem],phish, and junk mail/deleted mail) nothing at all.
  15. What to do? I posted earlier this week about my Virgin Media bill. I'm on the X phone and broadband package, and amounts to around £40 - £50 a month, depending on the charged calls I make. I got my e-invoice a week or so ago and it said £306.89 for the period of 8th January to 7th February. I though they'd made a typing error and presumed they meant £36.89. Anyway, I received an e-mail a few days ago saying they were unable to collect the bill payment from my account because not enough funds were available. With this in mind I phoned Virgin CS to query the problem. They basical
  16. Cheers for your help Rebel11. I'm in the process of writing them a letter now. I've been reading the link you've supplied and also trawled through their Code of Practice and other stuff. I'm so dismayed about this, and I really think the women I originally spoke to knows this practice is wrong. I definately agree with you when you say that CS are designed to frustrate, I thinks that's all they do. Thanks again, I'll update when I get more news.
  17. Hi folks I'd be really grateful I'd someone could help me out with this. I'd had problems with Sky in the past and thought it was all over when I joined Virgin 2 years ago. I've been on the Broadband, landline and telephone (evening and weekend calls) package for most of the past 12 months. I'd noticed our bills (paper) were gradually rising, from the £40 or so pounds per month, up to over £75 last month. I queried this and they told me it was for out of hours calls. I didn't agree with the amount but nevertheless accepted it...I really didn't need the hassle of complianing and so on.
  18. Thanks 2ltr16valve and drpellypo, Firstly, yes it was a Warrant Enforcement Officer, and he did show me the arrest warrant. However, he was indeed too a much nicer bloke than the average baliff. I agree with you both, and I will call DVLA to report van stolen and I'm also no longer the registered keeper. After a lot of trawling around our house, my has thankfully found the original receipt. It was made to a cash payable account of the magistrates at The Halifax bank. The date of the payment was early November 2005. Only problem now is they only have records of the fine being iss
  19. Hi Any help with this dire set of circumstances will be gratefully received. I apolgise for the post's length, but I think a good general picture might be helpful in what I think is quite a unique case. In 2004 (about October) I closed my business as a foam supplier. The reasons for this are not relevant to this problem. Because I was unable to pay the remaining rent on the business property, the Landlord (with help from her solicitor) confiscated my LDV Van. The van was paid up and had no outstanding HP. The Landlord's solicitor then sent me a letter a week or so later stating
  20. RESULT Just received a phone call from Tory MP Mr Bill Cash. Sounds like he's vigorously upheld our complaint against these ruthless moronic thugs. The collection has now been withdrawn from Rosendales and placed back with the Council. However, Rossendales will still be holding details of the account - whatever that means. I've never in all my time as a voter (20 years) felt the need to go as far as contacting an MP for assistance, but my, how much power and clout these guys have got is amazing. MP Bill cash asked Rossendales why they were so intent on removing goods to pay the
  21. Okay guys and gals... firstly can I thank you all for replying to my OP. All the information and advice received has been top notch. I've checked out the links you provided and got a better understanding of what I can do to resolve this appaulling and truly undeserved treatment from these gangsters. To date my home has not been revisited to carry out the order, probably because I took the opportunity to get in touch with my local tory MP. I sent him an e-mail along with a copy of my post on here. On Friday morning at 0901 I got a telephone reply from the conservative office saying th
