About Me


  1. Hi all, Thanks to anyone who would mind taking the time to read this and advise me if possible. I received a 2 fines from the magistrates court. 1 for no tv license (fair enough) and one for driving without insurance (although the car wasn't been driven it was just parked on my street as it was broken down and id transferred my insurance onto a new vehicle. Taxed to be on the road but didn't realise it had to be insured as well, my bad but I guess that's by the by). In the midst of this I was granted a debt relief order and was granted £300 by the official receiver
  2. Thanks for any help guys, I am just going through old letters and paperwork to sort out and have just opened a letter from Collectica regarding an old HMCTS debt. This must have been an old court hearing regarding somebody saying I hit them from behind. I never did and in fact it was the car next to me speaking a language I could not understand that had hit the car. There was no damage to any cars and I phoned the police at the time to make them aware. We are going back some 7 years. At the time There was a court hearing that I did not attend (I was going through a v
  3. Just had bailiff turn, threaten locksmiths and actually called a locksmith for a speeding fine from June last year. He handed me a notice of intention to enter and search premises - removal notice. under Tribunals Act 2007 s12 p2 18b enter premises using reasonable force even in absence. He said he could force entry and a locksmith would be called to gain access. I asked him for his warrant of entry under s15 but he refused. My partner did not know that her speeding fine would be taken to court, she is unemployed and has just had to pay £650 out of her savings for this
  4. Hi all. I am new to the forum and would really appreciate any advice and feel a bit unsure asking as I have never done this before. Sorry if it is long winded. I had an unpaid magistrates fine of £370 passed to Collectica. I received a letter by post from them stating I must pay £675 in full or contact them to arrange a payment plan. Nobody has ever attended my property or hand delivered anything. I called Collectica and they accepted that I could pay £337.50 (half the amount) in 7 days time and then 5 further weekly payments of £67.50. This was an awful lot to me bu
  5. Need help and advice please. My son recieved a letter on Monday his first name and also his surname was spelt wrong on opening the letter it was from a debt collection agency called Collectica based in Leeds demanding a payment of approx £600. My son rang them to ask what it was for because he had no debts and also the name was spelt wrong and they must have made a mistake. They asked him his date of birth and he told them they said it was the same date of birth it was a debt he had not paid 18 months ago when he lived in Sunderland. if he didn't
  6. Hello everyone at the CAG forum, this is my first post here. I'm hoping to get some advice with Marston / Collectica after a bailiff visit today. I wasn't home but they left a hand delivered Final Notice. Let me give some more information; I have a Further Steps Notice from London Collection and Compliance Centre dated 18th November, amount owed £580. I did not open and read this letter until yesterday. Around two weeks ago I received a Notice of Enforcement Distress Warrant from Her Majesty's Courts & Tribunals Service, it stated the debt was £580 but now £660
  7. Hi I had the bailiffs this morning with a warrant of entry for TV licence fine for the cost of £610. I didn't answer the door and they posted a letter and asked me to contact them. He won't accept a payment plan and I haven't got the money or the goods to cover the debt. It's from about a year ago I had just moved home I was pregnant and under the care of a physiologist for perinatal depression and anxiety. I forgot they had even come my mind was else where. They issued me a summons for cleavland court but that's about 60 miles away from my home so I just ign
  8. Morning I receive a letter from collectica yesterday morning . Dated 26 February 2016 Client. HMCTS West Mercia (warrant) Client ref. ********* Total amount outstanding £620 We are in possession of a warrant of control as a consequence of non payment of the above fine. Your residence at the above address has been identified by marstons tracing and investigations unit.

  9. I moved house on 1st December and notified the court by email on the 7th December. I'd missed 3 weeks of payments and on the 30th November they passed the fine to collectica. I didn't find this out until the 8th of December when they rang me. I immediately paid the rest of the fine online directly to the court but they are saying they are going to pass my payment to collectica and that collectica are going to take their fees off the amount I paid thus leaving the fine unpaid and me back at square one. I just want to know if they are allowed to do this?
  10. Hi, My other half got a letter from Collectica the other day concerning a debt she owes the council concerning damages to her house, although she does not dispute the debt, it is the wording on the letter from the DCA that has got me. The letter states offence date as the date that the council carried out the repairs, my view is that by stating the words offence it would imply that it was a criminal matter and not a civil matter, by using this terminology has collectica screwed up and made their request unenforceable. Here is a copy of the letter [image removed
  11. Hello. A few months back, my wife was taken to the local magistrates for non-payment of TV Licence. She made them an offer of £10 a week to clear the fine. She has made payments to clear the fine (But she missed a few, but not fell majorly behind) and the sum is now down to £25. we get a letter today (After she already paid this week's payment) saying that her account has been passed on to Collectica. We gave the court a call saying that it's unfair that the fine has been passed over with such a small amount remaining. The fella who we spoke to at the courts i
  12. My brother is a colossal idiot who ran off from a taxi without paying fare, has since not bothered to pay the fine, and it has rocketed up to £1000 + over the months he's been ignoring it. He doesn't live at home with myself and my mother any more, and hasn't since last year. However, Collectica don't seem to care despite being told this on more than on occasion. This morning I heard a car engine idling outside at about 6:30/7.00. No knock, but when I went downstairs later there was a 'Notice of Removal' through the door (with no time on it, the time/date space has
  13. On the 12/08/15 a man knocked my door and handed me a blank envelope, then he walked away. I opened it to find a notice saying in big red letters (Removal Visit). This letter doesn't look very official, it looks like something I could type up in 5 minutes, but it does say in the top right corner HMCTS Warrant. Apparently my fine had not been paid since April last year ,which was news to me as it was being taken from my Job Seekers Allowance as far as I knew. Neither the courts or DWP notified me that the fine wasn't being paid! The initial fine was
  14. My daughter fell behind with 2 payments on her payment plan due to her partner and her benefits being stopped she has now had a Compliance letter with the £75 fee which she cannot afford we have called collectica and they put us through to the bailiff who was very rude and said he wanted the full amount(£276.45) and it was not negotiable I then spoke to him and informed him that I was recording this conversation of which he told me that it was not allowed and I was going to get sued by collectica.The main point that I am trying to find out is will she be classed as vulnerable as the are both

I do agree that 30 pounds should not escalate in proportion. But bad advice by cab if true. The debt does not escalate 300 per visit.
  16. Hello all, Hoping someone can give me some advice to let me know what my options are, and whether or not this company is being unreasonable. Thanks in advance. I received a notice of enforcement from Collectica for a outstanding fine for TV License. My own silly fault that I did not pay it but to be honest it wasn't something I could afford. It says I owe money to HM Courts and Tribunals service which I assume is serious. Is this the type of debt that allows the enforcement office to let themselves in to my home? It says I have until tomorrow to pay or make an arrangemen
  17. Hi, my partner has had outstanding payments with the courts, we had been paying them off at £20 a week up until January when he lost his job...we are currently on job seekers allowance and have been unable to make payments. Today we had a hand delivered letter from collectica magistrate baliffs saying they want payment of £982.74 immediately or they will force entry, which will be pointless as we have absolutely nothing of value in the property. We have sold our TV last month to make ends meet until partner finds a new job. This morning my partner phoned our allocated baliff who was
  18. Hello, Just had a baliff from collectica at my door for my husbands speeding fine. We have been paying it off in weekly instalments, but missed the last 2 weeks due to my disability and husband having to stop work to look after me. He is now claiming Carers allowance for me. I told the baliff he doesnt live here any more to try and buy us some more time. The notice they left says that the FULL balance HAS to be paid in full or they will be removing goods and no further arrangements to pay will be accepted. Can we apply to them to get a deductions from bene

  20. Hello guys, I wonder if someone can advise? On 3rd of March an enforcement officer from a company called Collectica came to our house and presented my wife with a "Notice of intention to enter & search your premises-removal notice". It transpires that this was in relation to an outstanding speeding ticket my wife thought she had cleared off via an automated payment back in December. She has had no communication from any body until that morning when the gentleman arrived. The outstanding balance of £65 is include in the new bailiff balance of £375, a massi
  21. Hi, all, need some urgent advice. TV licence fine debt of £20 was sent to collectica. Had been paying fine off but due to payment issues with ESA, missed two £5 payments. Received a letter from collectica charging me £75 plus the outstanding fine debt of £20. I was really angry that no notice had been given to me of it going to collectica, but it's my fault for forgetting to chase it, called collectica to sort out paying. The guy on the phone was awful and so rude and obnoxious. He left me in absolute tears. He wanted the whole lot in one

  23. Hi, my partner had a fine for not picking up dog foul, i wont go into detail but a special cop said he saw the dog foul and my partner walk away, i know he always picks it up as i quite often go with him, he isnt the sort of person who would leave it, he told the s.p.o it wasnt his dogs, but i will pick it up anyway, so he did, as he felt he hadnt done anything wrong he even gave his own address and name. the next thing he gets a court date, attened court and they found in favour of the s.p.o and he was fined 400 pound. we set up a standing order, alt

  25. I had a visit off Collectica a couple of weeks back regarding a few fines that were out standing. He looked like a bodyguard with bullet proof vest and looked very scarey. He claimed he was from the courts and had a warrant to enter my property and take stuff to cover the debts. He was very understanding at the time but made me feel very little and under a very lot of pressure. I have a few questions if someone can help me out. 1) i thought bailiffs are not allowed to force themselves into a house. They need to advise you they are bailiffs and wait until you allow
