  1. The following news article featured on SCOOP today: http://www.publicsectorexecutive.com/Public-Sector-News/london-council-to-launch-ethical-debt-collection-for-residents?dorewrite=false/Page-1749 https://www.scoop.it/t/lacef-news
  2. People with problem debt could be given a six-week breathing space, the government has confirmed. It follows pressure from rebels in the House of Lords, who had threatened to vote down the Financial Guidance and Claims Bill later on Tuesday. They wanted the bill amended to include the breathing space idea. But the Treasury has now confirmed that help for those in debt will now be the subject of a consultation, and will become law by 2019. The concept had been promised in the Conservative party manifesto, and was mentioned in the Queen's Speech. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/b
  3. Since the introduction of the Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2013, it has been very interesting to observe the number of forum posts (here and on all other websites) where debtors (and indeed regular forum posters) consider that in cases where a debtor is identified as being ''vulnerable', that the local authority (or creditor) should be obliged to recall the account from an enforcement agent.....and remove all bailiff fees. In the majority of cases, the fees under discussion will be £310, consisting of a Compliance Fee of £75 (applied when sending the Notice of Enforcement) and an
  4. Sorry for bring this up again If the vehicle is not owned by the debtor, and is clamped or towed. then surely this is a breach of Data protection, as some one who is not the debtor will find out about the warrant?
  5. Was watching this channel five show 2 weeks ago - in full view of the camera the HCEO normally on the show a decent enough guy with a nasty job forced entry into a residential home, assaulting the debtor after putting foot in door. Has the new act now given HCEO's the right to make a forced entry trying to smash past the debtor/resident over a civil debt? I thought HCEO's could only force entry into commercial property? They also appear to now be issuing bankruptcy stat demands like confetti in an attempt to secure their fees despite the fact this could be wor
  6. At a Liability Order hearing at Chesterfield magistrates’ court on 4th March two debtors were led out of the court by ushers. One of the debtors was Mr Henry who refused to remove his woollen had and argued that to do so would be a breach of his rights and he began quoting from paperwork stating that: “This is my thought, consciousness and religion and you cannot deny me these rights.” The second debtor was Mr Trevor Hill but he provided the court with his 'strawman' name of "Trevor of the Hill family". He told the court that he would not consent with the proceedings and arg
  7. I changed my name in 2006 whilst living in England and from then on-wards I did not make any payments towards my debts in my old name. I did not inform my banks or creditors of my change of name and have not applied for any credit accounts since then. I have been living in Scotland for 1 year and all of a sudden I have had Sheriffs Officers visit my address on a few occasions looking to speak to my "old alias. I have not acknowledged the debts at all, I have simply told them that there is no such person living at my address. My questions are: A. Can Sheriffs officers purs
  8. An interesting story that featured on SCOOP today has caught my attention. The link to the story is below and the article says the following: Council tax dodgers in Wyre could be targeted by a team of specialist lawyers under plans drawn up by town hall bosses. Law firm Greenhalgh Keer has been lined up for a six-month pilot scheme that could see residents who refuse to pay up pursued more aggressively. A report published by Wyre Council’s resources portfolio holder Coun Alan Vincent (pictured), who will make a decision on the plans next week, said chasing up the most pers
  9. a little dickie bird just sent me a msg saying Advantis DCA are now using a series of mobile phones to try and get around debtors not responding to landline calls and letters. it took several exchanges to find out they were a DCA the caller just asked for the debtor by their first name saying they were an old school friend. he smelt a rat as he could here call centre chatter in the back ground. 07891891162 was the number others to follow or add them here if you know others dx siteteam.
  10. My landlord has two judgements against him, one is over £10000. I have discovered also that my landlord has two charging orders on his house and that one of his creditors has sold my landlord’s debt of over £10000 to a firm at a discount which is specialised in buying debts at a discount. I would like to know why my landlord’s creditor has not made bankrupt my landlord, sold his house and taken his money from the proceed of the sale of my landlord’s house so that to be paid the full amount of money that it is owed by my landlord to him instead of selling at a discount my landlord’s debt
  11. Form 4 complaint: Burnley County Court: May 2013. His Honour Judge Butler This particular Judgment is very serious indeed and it being posted as it is in the public interest to do so. Firstly, the contents of the Judgment are vitally important but, as can be seen from the top right hand corner, all 3 pages have been copied from a particular website. It is sadly the case that the website in question have continually claimed that it is a "myth" that Courts have ever ordered claimants to pay costs if a Form 4 Complaint is dismissed. This is all the more serious given that thi
  12. Payday lender Wonga tells MPs it may use debt collection agencies to chase errant borrowers. Customers who have taken on expensive payday loans could soon find themselves harassed by debt collectors if they are unable to pay back these debts. Wonga, one of the biggest payday lenders, told MPs yesterday that it was considering using debt collection services in future, and aimed to start a trial shortly. The lender has arranged more than one million loans over the past five years. Payday lenders arrange smaller short-term loans for customers, which can be approved within 15 minutes. Due to

  14. Payday lender Wonga has been ordered to change its practices after the Office of Fair Trading found it had wrongly accused customers of committing fraud in debt collection letters . The regulator has reprimanded Wonga because of letters and phone calls where Wonga wrongly accused customers of committing fraud and threatened police action. Wonga staff told some customers who worked in the public or financial sectors that they had to pay, or else would break terms in the contract of employment.
