  1. I think I paid on my debit card, I tend to pay for everything via debit card these days. Silverfox, thanks for your advice, I'm going to head down to the original store I bought it from (I went to their other store in PC World which is closer to me yesterday) and ask for a refund due to it being unfit for purpose. I'll keep you all updated. Ta, Rob
  2. Hi folks, Back in January (actually 6 months ago today) I bought a SIM free Motorola Moto G phone from Phones4U to replace a faulty Samsung Galaxy S3 which I was told was no longer covered by warranty due to a small crack in the case (that's another story altogether :-/). Anyway, the phone worked great for a couple of months, for the cost (£150) it was a great purchase and did everything that I wanted. However, about 2 months ago it started to develop an annoying issue. Basically the battery was draining really quickly. If I disconnected it from a my laptop (the phone was only sup
  3. Hi Dx, It's an old Council Tax debt from last year. I've contested it with the council as they didn't apply the discount, and for a while I was getting council tax benefit which the bailiffs didn't take into consideration. Rob
  4. Hi folks, I'm in need of a bit of advice please. I've come home this evening to find my car has been clamped by Ross & Roberts. The car is parked on my driveway after it failed the MOT (I couldn't afford to get it fixed and the tax had ran out). I've had a couple of letters and a form put through the door. First of all there is a "Second Notice" asking for over £300. The original date was the 14th March, but this was scribbled out and changed to 20th March. Also in with this letter was a "Removal Notice" to say that I've failed to contact the bailiff
  5. The LO is addressed to my address. I just went to my mums as I was worried they'd be hanging around outside my house. Maybe my fear is unfounded but I'd got my daughter with me and I didn't want her to get upset. My daughter wanted to go to my mums house to stay overnight so I dropped her over there. Thanks, I did call them back again but wasn't able to get hold of them, so I'll stop all contact with them. I've been reading some of the other posts on the forums about R&R, I gather they'll try and scare me into opening the door to them. I'll get on to the council again
  6. Thanks for the advice so far. I've spoken to my mum, she has some of the paperwork for my car (an invoice when she bought the car and the loan agreement, although it was a cash loan and not secured on the car). I had a call back from the bailiff but missed the call (I was on the way home at the time), I'm a bit worried about the next step, I picked my eldest daughter up from the child minder and went straight round to my mums house in case they were waiting outside the house. I'm worried that they're going to demand unreasonable amounts of money that I can't afford. I'm more than willi
  7. Thanks,I'll try and find the original letters from the council tonight and try and make a payment. Not sure what happened with the post, I think it might be the browser I'm using at work, previewing the post puts it in one large block of text too unless I use HTML tags to put lines in. I'll try and edit it now, failing that when I get home this evening. Ta,Rob
  8. Hi folks, I wonder if someone could possibly help?I received a letter last Saturday from Ross & Roberts bailiffs with regards to unpaid council tax. The letter was dated 26th June 2012 and I didn't receive the letter until Saturday 7th July 2012. It said in the letter I had 14 days from the date of the letter to contact them. I tried calling both numbers which were given on the letter to try and make arrangements to pay the debt but one one number the office was closed, and the other there was no answer despite the opening hours being listed as 8am until 1pm on Saturday (I called
  9. Okay, but this debt was my own debt from when I was single, about 5 months before I met my wife. What I'm concerned about is not being able to take my belongings out of the house if/when I leave if a walking possession has been signed. I'll keep in mind what you mention about the council tax though, if I leave (which I don't want to have to do, but it looks like it might be the only option) then I'll make sure I let the council know that I'm leaving (the council housing department are already aware of my pending situation anyway). Rob
  10. Hi there,I'm wondering if maybe someone could give me some advice with regards to separation and where things stand with Bailiffs?Basically my wife has told me that she wants to separate from me. At the moment I'm the only one working and we're strugging financially as it is.I have a debt for over paid council tax benefit from where I was living before I moved in with my wife. I've had issues paying the debt and finally the council have taken the step of referring the debt to Ross & Roberts. I've had dealings with Ross & Roberts in the past and generally in the past had to borrow la
