  1. HI everyone my first post on this site as i am in a bit of a pickle around 2 years ago at my gym ( which also happens to be a hotel & restaurant ) company called "millennium door and event security randomly turned up and decided to start slapping tickets on everyones cars ( gym users , hotel stayers & restaurant eaters all included ) as you can imagine there was quite the uproar with many complaints going to the hotel manager about this whom seemingly was unaware what exactly was going on ,but someone within the hotel had agreed that millennium could start ticketing peoples cars under the pretence that they were " managing the car park " i imagine of course the hotel would receive a percentage of any " charges recovered " i avoided the whole thing for a while although i will admit things like this make my blood boil as this business model is created to inflict misery on innocent people and to generate pure profits for the robbers that own these companies i cannot believe that in 2017 companies like this are still allowed to get away with slapping tickets on peoples cars on land they have absolutely no affiliation with anyway around a year ago i damaged some ligaments in my leg , i still attended my gym as there was a good physiotherapist there and i liked to use the pool facility however for around 5-6 months i was unable to walk distances and therefore i would use the disabled spaces provided by the hotel this is where the problems began everytime i would return from using the facilitys i would find a "ticket" on my windscreen i must have collected around 20 of them in 6 months however as i pay a monthly fee for my gym i believed i was more than entitled to use the private disabled parking space provided by the hotel and simply ignored the nonsense tickets i can remember even querying this with the gym manager who said the rules do not apply to patrons and members ( the sign millennium door and event security had put up even mentions this ) i kept throwing the tickets away and thought nothing more of it , until i started receiving mountains of letters from "max recovery" and "goldstones solicitors" more con artists i ignored all these swell thinking it was all huffing and puffing trying to bully money out of me next thing i am being served county court papers from some business centre in Nottingham ( 200 miles from where i live ) first i received one claim stating i owe £400 - this was the first one and i actually went to court with expecting somebody to see sense and throw it in the bin gladstone rocked up with 3 solicitors and had carefully analysed every single defence point i had I'm not joking they must have spent more time on this than the OJ simpson trail myself and the magistrate had lost all interest by the end and the court awarded them the full amount minus a little bit of interest they were trying to claim i ended up paying these ba*stards £374 in full they were not prepared to negotiate a payment plan of any type then a few months later i receive one stating i owe another £350 - by this point i had enough and just threw it in the bin ( i know stupid ) the judgement defaulted and they yet again get the result they so desperately wanted along with a CCJ which has now been handed to DCBL aka don't pay we will take it away i also have another case with them waiting to go to court for another £400 - but i have been clever in dragging this one out for along as i possible can by switching addresses and saying i am out of the country for 5 months but i have no doubt that gladstone will be after this one like a dog after a bone too anyway its the defaulted one they have a cci for i am most concerned about at the moment because i live with my parents and where as if i was on my own i simply wouldnt even acknowledge they're existence and would potentially consider an acceptable level of force to remove them from my property ( yes i feel that strongly about it ) my mother is old and would get frightened easily if 2 burly debt collection attack dogs and a camera crew turned up at the door one day i am aware there is no where else to really turn now I have accepted i will have to pay the criminals £350 and be thankful for it however like most ordinary people who don't con others on a daily basis i don't actually have a spare £350 just laying around to pay them i am insolvent and live on very little i am going to ring DCBL tomorrow to see if i can pay £50 a month I'm already anticipating they will politely decline this and i notice there is no way to contact them via email ( meaning no paper trail of attempted negotiations for court ) so assuming this will probably end up in high court a few questions 1) could a £350 debt even incur a high court writ and if not does it just go back to county court what sanctions do they take 2) i am aware you can ask the court to set aside the judgement or set up a payment plan however they want £50 minimum to do either of these extremely difficult tasks and seeing as the debt is £350 I'm not sure its really worth it to add another 50 on 3) is it worth speaking to citizens advice or will they just give me barrel answers 4) the outstanding judgement thats waiting to go to court could anyone help me on here with a defence ? because obviously my last one didnt work very well sorry i know the post is long but this is literally so frustrating if i had actually incurred a debt with someone for a service or goods they had provided i would of paid up straight away however these "debts" have seemingly appeared out of thin air i still after all thisl fail to see the damage I've actually caused to warrant nearly £1000 pounds worth of parking charges all i did was park at my gym thanks to anyone that takes the time to respond
  2. What is this issue in the news recently about clowns jumping out and scaring people, what's going on ?..
  3. Hi, I'll try & keep this quick & brief. However, I have had recent dealings with Motormile Finance as they contacted my 85 year old mother in law and scared the crap out of her by threatening a doorstep visit looking for myself. I don't know why they have contacted her as I have NEVER lived there. Anyway, I sent them the standard template from the CAG forums regarding a doorstep visit and changed the last paragraph to comply with Scots law. I have today received this letter to my actual address where I live. Any advice on what to send these parasites in response to this? I dispute the debt and have no recollection of taking out any payday loan with Wage Day advance. I have mentioned this to them, but they ask me to provide a CRN (Crime Ref Number) which I have no intention of doing. Thanks
  4. Seriously, what a bunch of clowns. I have been their customer for 6 months, now I can't pay and they are trying to get me to fill in a I&E form and won't accept it without the names of my creditors, which I have refused to give them and we are now just going around in circles. It's hiliarious. I have given them a basic I&E without names but here is the latest reply; From: james.king@wagedayadvance.co.uk To: xxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR ACCOUNT WITH WAGE DAY ADVANCE LTD Date: Mon, 9 Jul 2012 08:38:08 +0000 Dear xxxxx You can provide as little or as much details as you would like regarding your income and out goings as this is purely for your benefit if you chose to miss expenses then we cant take this into account but this is entirely your choice. However we do require a list of creditors even if it is only the balances owed as stated previously we need this information to work out your pro rata (which is used by the courts) as also stated before we are trying to help you but I am sure you can appreciate that you took a loan and signed an agreement that you were to pay x amount back on x date you are requesting now that you pay £20 a month towards this breaking your agreement. And all we are asking for is some basic information in order for us to help you do this if you are unwilling to even provide this information then we are not in the wrong as we are trying to help but we cant without the figures. Regards
