For the past nine years we have had trouble with different baliffs collecting on behalf of train and tram companies. It started with a baliff collecting for many unpaid tram fines in my husbands name in 2007. My husband did NOT accumulate these fines and had no idea where they came from. We had no correspondence of the orginal paperwork. Just what the baliff had in his hand. He suggested my husband do a stat dec on them and was very understanding. A few were actually referred back to court. My husband attended court and once the description of the person fined was read out it was quickly dismissed. The description however was the exact match to his brother
His brother admitted using my husbands name and address on many occasions.
We thought it was all over. We moved address and didnt think anymore of it.
But Its been years and these baliffs kept coming. Some we paid as they didnt give enough time to complete a stat dec others gave us time to complete it. Its been nine long years of just wondering when the next door knock will come.
This morning a baliff arrived stating he wanted £825 for avoidance of fares relating to 2005 and 2007. He has given us 24hours and if we do not pay hell be back with the police and a locksmith. We are at our wits end. Again its another day off for my husband and another day of ringing around courts. Is there anything we can do to stop this baliff and the locksmiths as we really do not have the money this time to stop them and not enough time to complete a stat dec. (Although my husband is trying)
