  1. Its always good to have some well-grounded facts. If you are going to argue these kinds of things on the fly one day with opposition barristers, its easier to do when you are on firm footing. Still someone's perception is someone's perception, and sorting out someone's perception from opinion or fact is never easy. I'm inclined to think he flew to the van with the credit card. But in court I would just say 'he went really quickly'. Its different styles for different venues. You'd be a good person to test an argument on, to see if it is Judge Proof :/
  2. My friend had the same thing with SheerFarce. I even showed her photos of suspects taken straight off the website. It was none of them, and the name on some paperwork is not listed on the AHCEO website either.
  3. Hahahaha! Thats so funny! Well then, they won't mind if you pay your creditor direct. They can always ask the creditor for their fees. I suspect, once the creditors are on the recieving end of demands from their own bailiffs, it will be an interesting learning experience for them. Sorry I can't help you with the charges all that much. I'm in a similar situation myself and would love a definitive answer.
  4. I edited my message above to include more information. A miscarriage of justice can generally be undone. I was serious about the law books, BTW. Does your son read at all? He needs to know how to defend himself from this kind of thing. I know whereof I speak. I had about 20 years where the police were always after me for something or other because I lived in a part of town where they assume everyone is a criminal. Plus I like to thump sex pests instead of running away. Police like to charge the winner. Which is always me. The police were a bigger problem than the sex pests. If t
  5. (3) It is a defence for the accused to prove— (a) that he had no reason to believe that there was any person within hearing or sight who was likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress, or (b) that he was inside a dwelling and had no reason to believe that the words or behaviour used, or the writing, sign or other visible representation displayed, would be heard or seen by a person outside that or any other dwelling, or © that his conduct wa
  6. It sounds to me like he was not guilty in the first place. Any police officer behaving like that could not possibly have been distressed by being told what he is. Was he pressurised into 'pleading guilty to get it over with'? If hes the sort of rebel who just likes being a pain, tell him from me he can make a far bigger pain of himself if he reads law books
  7. The bailiff will be coming back no matter who you pay. Sort of like a playground bully. But this way you pay less. First thing to remember is bailiffs lie. All the time. They are after the most fees possible. A nice shiny car wouldn't go amiss either. Even if you pay them for the next ten years, they'll stuff up their proceedures then claim you defaulted, stick on bogus fees etc. They are not interested in you paying off the debt, they are interested in you stuffing up. And they take their fees first. They do all this because you have a debt. They are on far more shaky ground if you do
  8. Then send your creditor a cheque for £750 or anything really, and don't tell them what its for till after they cash it. Could you explain more about the panic, I don't really get it. Like what exactly had you panicking and how ringing the bailiffs will help. Sorry if that seems like a rude question, but I've seen people panic a bit over the years but I'm never quite sure what is going on. Most people on here are quite desperate when they arrive, but after a bit of research and counselling they sort of know the process for getting bailliffs off their back and they stick to it because
  9. That will still be on file at the council, with any luck. 'Subject access request under the data protection act' time, I think. Don't tell them why you need it, just ask for everything they hold on you for the year you sent the letter.
  10. Who is the bailiff company? What was the debt for? Did she sign anything? And no, you can't have two levies on the same sets of goods.
  11. I think a principle to bear in mind here is that Who Screws Up Pays. The council should have known your wife was disabled, the bailiffs screwed up the payments all by themselves. I was talking to a QC many years ago about stuff like this - things that might or might not be specifically legislated for but that appear to be contrary to certain overriding legal principles. He said that in effect you could just go to a judge, bring an 'action in tort' without even specifying what you think the specific things someone did wrong are. Tell the judge what happened and leave it up to their di
  12. They aren't supposed to take a car on HP but I wouldn't trust them to behave within the letter of the law. Just move your car. Then ignore the door and deal direct with the council. I wonder if you would be classed as 'vulnerable'? Its a good thing to be classed as, in these situations..
  13. Lets tackle this from the other end. They say you lived there till 2007, right? Do you have any evidence whatsoever of you living anywhere else after that first six months? Old bills, even old envelopes addressed to you at a new address if they have a dated postmark. The bailiffs and the council won't care about that, but a judge will. If they are making accusations in court, they have to prove them. Its called the 'burden of proof'. If you can show just once piece of evidence, just one, that you were somewhere else at any point in the disputed period, it casts doubts on their whole
  14. And he can't afford to keep making pointless visits. Don't worry. Keep your doors and windows shut and locked and pretend you are not home. I take it you haven't signed anything? He will want you to sign a 'walking possession agreement' I should think. Keep ignoring him, and I'm sure someone else will be along with more specific advice shortly, to do with council tax. You are doing the right thing though to deal with the council, not him. And move your car to another street if you have a car.
  15. Thanks If you need me and I'm gone (I do that for months) PM me and I'll be notified. I still haven't worked out the link-posting rules so google the thing in bold.. Its a very long judgement. If you go through even one page of it you'll get the gist, but reading it all wouldn't be a bad idea. It was about someone booted out of her care home. She lost, but the reasons she did so are relevant because they go to the very heart of what is or is not a 'public authority' and it seems to me any bailiff granted special statutory powers would be one no matter who is paying them Judgment
  16. Yes, her and that other dimwit are whats known as 'useful idiots' in the trade. And thats a technical term, not a personal attack. Its standard operating proceedure. You get someone a bit dim, promote them beyond their ability, then they have to follow even illegal orders without question because they do not know which questions to ask. Should the merde hit the air conditioning device they can be sacrified without undue interruption to One's Plans. For the American equivalent see Alberto Gonzalez. He tried firing any district attorney likely to prosecute vote rigging. Damn
  17. So, this is on the statute books already, taken through paliament on a Good Day to Bury Bad News, by a woman who was rewarded with promotion for it and the whole notion was promoted by some dimwit who was told just enough by his bosses to fool the odd committee but not enough to answer questions in depth. The devil, as we know is in the detail, and 15 pages of this detail were censored. I smell a very large rat. Orders came down for this one from upon very high indeed, and I don't mean the prime minister. Who the hell would have both Jack Straw and Vera whats-her-name in their pocke
  18. His forms are his own affair. He can write what he likes on his forms. He can write he saw Elvis riding Shergar in your driveway and 'seized' the pair of them. What his forms say are his problem, not yours. Unless you sign them. Have you any idea on what legal basis he thinks he can get your house? Because I'm mystified. Did you see any charging order? Here is what I would do. In this order.. 1) Move any cars. 2) Pay the builders merchants if you can. Just the original amount. This must go direct to the builder. Do you have a way of paying them that they cannot refuse? S
  19. If he wants to 'seize' someone else's cars let him. However 'seizing' them and 'nabbing' them are two different things. Move the cars a few streets away or some place he can't see them. If he finds them nevertheless, your sister can apply to the court and get them back. Was your initial credit secured on your house, and did you consent to having the matter bumped up to the High Court? Just a stab in the dark here, but are the bailiffs Sherforce?
  20. Is it just me or does that sound like a 419 advanced fee fraud? You know, those [problem] emails you get where theres always millions waiting for you but you have to pay fee after fee after fee.. I love winding those people up. ('scambaiting'). They get extra annoyed if they think at the last minute you spent 'their' money on something else (I like to send pictures of expensive cars and large piles of talc). If I were you, I'd tell then that you had all their money, but sadly, you just spent it on a large dog. You are not able to afford food for it and when did you say you were coming rou
  21. Sherforce here too. Excess fees for something that as far as I can tell didn't even have a proper court case - just some secret tribunal. Taken to County Court for a rubber stamp then to the High Court for another rubber stamp. Put some paper through the door saying they had a walking possession agreement, and according to the woman who went down to the communal doorway to speak to the first one, claimed to be a Sheriff. The Fake walking possession claim lists as an enforcement officer someone who is not of the register and the fees are as bogus as usual. Reported as a crime under th
  22. I think you should also do what I did today, call the data protection people.. Call us on 08456 30 60 60 or 01625 54 57 45. Our helpline is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. I spoke to a nice man there today and he really knew his stuff. Even reminded me of certain common law ideas that should have occurred to me and didn't. I've just been through the Data Protection Act too, with a fine tooth comb. I didn't see any exemption for bailiffs. There are two basic approaches - asking them what sort of information they hold on you and asking for the information itself.
