  6. I've recently been bankrupted here in Norway, and they allready have charges over all my belongings and my half share in a house here. I have just received an email from the bankruptcy lawyers asking about my house in the UK where my (soon to be ex) wife and children currently live, and I have a feeling that they might try and force a sale of it. Can anyone advise on this at all
  7. BTW, If you really would prefer to pay them and just get rid of the hassle, here are their details on the official Norwegian register of businesses: http://w2.brreg.no/enhet/sok/detalj.jsp?orgnr=974782766
  8. This is a private parking company, and here in Norway have similar rights to what they they do in the UK, so if you were dealing with them yourself, you could just ignore them and they'll go away... BUT, You're not dealing with this yourself, and no matter what you tell them or write to them, Hertz will pay the "fine" for you and they will bill your card. So, as Notts_Phil wrote, Cancel your card. Do it right now, and inform your card issuer NOT to make any payments to Hertz without your express permission. Been there, done that, and had to fight like hell to get it back.
  9. As a current resident of Norway, and one that has just been made bankrupt himself, I would advise you to do at least one thing; make sure that you were not made bankrupt in your absence. If you were, you will need to take action against it. The laws here are far worse than the UK, for one thing, you will never be discharged from bankruptcy until the debt is paid, and they will come after any property you have in the UK if they find out about it. I am currently trying to find out more information regarding their rights to take my house in the UK, which is difficult considering the only access to communication of any sort that I have is the internet, they even had my phone disconnected and are re-routing all my mail to them first !
  10. RWR, atom02 states in post 12 . . . http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/show-post/post-2752110.html . . . that the judgement was obtained while he/she was out of the country, this is exactly what they did to me, knowing full well that I was unable to defend ( I had told them on the phone that I was working abroad) as I had no idea it was happening. They then rammed the CO through the court within 2 weeks, I was only aware of this the day before it was heard, and had no chance or time to prepare a defence. I too want to fight them, but it's made much more difficult for me because I no longer live in the UK, and have been led to believe that it might be an impossible task to beat them now given the time scale (about 4 years), I shall be watching this thread with very intense interest. BTW, MBNA have stalled me all along the way, and have never produced a copy of my original agreement, only a particularly bad copy of a card application form.
  11. Don't go taking time off work unless you specifically have to, you don't stand much chance of claiming the loss of earnings back without court action. Just about everything you need to do for now can be done by post. Get that letter sent off ASAP, recorded (preferably) or otherwise.
  12. I noticed that as well . . . . If the charges were dropped, surely there should have been no fine to pay
  13. I used to keep a battery powered angle grinder in the boot of my car in the UK. I have been clamped 3 times, Tesco car park Farnbrough, where I also released another car at the same time, Bristol Temple Meads station, Met Police near Earls Court, I cut the clamp off each time and took it away with me, and I was never persued for anything. Whenever I visit the UK now, I make sure that the grinder is the first thing I load in the boot of the car, and I would not hesitate to use it again, NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES. STUFF THE CLAMPERS
  14. Of course it does, if they're not legally allowed to work in the UK, then they are not allowed to issue PCN's. If anyone decided to contest the legality of their particular PCN, they would have the right to know the details of the person issuing it, and if it turns out to be one of the "illegals" . . .
  15. Here's a very interesting article I just read in the Telegraph On-Line: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/2988949/Lambeth-traffic-wardens-quit-over-immigration-row.html Now then, a bit of lateral thinking comes up with . . . Surely, if a PCN is issued by someone that not only had no right to be employed as a Parking Attendant, but also had no right to even be in the country, then that PCN would in itself be unlawful issued ?? So, do I sense the potential for a costly refund of tens of thousands of PCN's issued by people with no right to do so
  16. I've just had a quick read through this topic, and I noticed that the OP stated at the beginning that the account was over 7 years old, as is shown on the "alledged" agreement. No further mention has been made of this... SO, when was the last payment ?? Have you actually made any payments to them ?? Maybe the agreement is irrelevent, the account could turn out to be statute barred ??
  17. What a change in a person. Sunflower, you've come on a long way since your initial post, and you certainly come across now as calm and confident. How does it feel to eventually be able to sit back, relax, have a nice cuppa (when the new kettle arrives), and laugh at DCA's instead of worry about them BTW, keep on to the DLA people, trust me, it doesn't take too long to get it sorted, and it's well worth it in the end. One thing I would add, if you get a nice lump sum of arrears from DLA, like we did, DON'T use it to pay any DCA's, take a nice holiday instead, you deserve it
  18. I'll do it for you: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bailiffs-sheriff-officers/158328-rossendales-threats-please-help.html
  19. If you are absolutely certain that it was the first visit, write to the baillif company immediately, giving them 7 days to refund the unlawful part of their charges in full or be hauled through the courts with no further notification.
  20. A lot depends on what kind of debt it is. But from what I remember of other cases similar to this in the past on this forum, Link can't really do much !! They certainly can't take you to court in the UK as you are not resident there. As for the Canadian DCA's give them exactly the same run arround you would give Link, you can insist on all the same docs etc as usual, because it's a UK debt, that'll confuse the hell out of them
  21. Sunflower99, just a quickie for you to maybe give you more confidence in the council benefit adviser. I have a disabled daughter, and also have my disabled mother in-law living at my house as well. My wife was getting all the benefits for her mum sorted out when the adviser saw our daughter at one of the meetings, she is not "highly visible" as disabled, it just shows up sometimes in her actions and the way she talks. We had been refused DLA for her in the past, and thought it was pointless trying again. We were immediately and strongly advised to apply for DLA + others for her as well, and the adviser insisted on handling the case, and after 2 months we had it all granted, plus 5 years backdated money, that came in very handy. My daughter was 12 years old at the time, and if we'd seen the adviser sooner, we would have had a full 12 years back money, but unfortunately they had changed the rules only a few weeks before we made the successful application. Go for it, you know it makes sense

    Well, I do have proof . . . sort of . . . They produced what they claimed was my CCA agreement (it was only an application form), and that dates from 1997, so I believe that the chances are that they will have other stuff as well. It's primarily the old statements etc that I'm after, as they supplied none at all.

    Thanks Hopeful 1 From what I can remember, the six years is a misinterpretation by people of the rules regarding records for tax purposes, and is actually the minimum time they must keep them. Most companies keep records far longer than that, and as long as they have them, you can demand them. I had thought about a court order to force them to produce, but I have no previous case history to back up my belief that they do have more records and are just being obtrusive, hence asking if anyone had got more than 6 years worth out of them. Anyone got any ideas, or even wording for a court application ?
