  1. 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
  2. Hi, This is my first post here and need some advice please - Had a letter given to me by mum yesterday which I opened to see it was from marstons and a notice of enforcement for HMCTS for £8,900.00. I was given a £11,600 fine last year for a VAT debt from the magistrates ( was to do with no giving security at the time) which was a £500 fine and £11,100 compensation. I have been paying this fine and was being paid every month, I believe the last couple or maybe just 1 (need to check) haven't gone out for some reason. Obviously debt has already gone down by £1700.00 since
  3. 10 years ago, my motorcycle was clamped for allegedly being on the road when SORN. I do not believe that this was the case, I paid the release fee and shortly afterwards moved to Guernsey. I learned that I had been prosecuted without my knowledge, but as there was no way I could be pursued for the fine out of jurisdiction, I forgot about it. Having moved back to the UK, I received a letter from HMCTS historic debt team demanding £523.75. I contacted them to say I had been prosecuted without my knowledge and was advised to make a sworn statement to that effect in my
  4. The Ministry of Justice has announced today that it will be outsourcing the collection of Magistrate courts fines currently done by almost 150 civil servants to the private sector. I have written on this forum since 2013 of the proposed plans which were abandoned approx 2 years ago. The vast majority of Magistrate Court fines are already enforced by the private sector (by Marston Holdings, Collectica Ltd, Swift and Excel Enforcement Ltd). A small proportion are also enforced by HM Courts & Tribunal Service Civilian Enforcement Agents. CEA's have the authority to search premises
  5. Hi If I have posted this in the wrong place than I apologise and please move to the correct forum I am looking for a bit of advice on using the Courts in reclaiming around £6,000 PPI which has been rejected by the Card owners and it is too late via the FOS. I am unwilling to use MCOL due to the £495 fee which is 70% of my income. However I am considering using the Small Claims Court but need a little bit of advice on fee remissions I am a retired British Ex Pat who is married to a Filipino with 4 children and currently surviving on a company pension which is bellow the fee
  6. Hi People, hope somebody can give me some advice what to do. I used to live in the Uk for 3 years. Now I'm back in my home country since 5 months in the EU. My old flatmate has send me a Letter from Marston over. Were they claim I owe HMCTS ..... more than 600BPF! He hasn't informed them where I live and will not do so. Only 2 Client ref. Numbers are on the letter nothing more! Not for what they charge me! (what could that be any thoughts?) I'm normal the sort of guy who always payed his bills. I never received a warning or any thing for a missing payment.
  7. One of the most common enquiries that we receive relates to the subject of Magistrate Court fines and whether or not the bailiff/enforcement agent is required to have in his possession a copy of the distress warrant/warrant of control. In almost all cases; the confusion arises from incorrect (and misleading) information on a small number of websites heavily connected to the Freeman on the Land or other such movements. These websites frequently ‘claim’ that companies enforcing magistrate court fines create ‘doctored or counterfeit’ warrants and debtors are encouraged by the websites to pa
  8. The subject of Magistrate court fines and in particular, the matter of bailiff fees for enforcing such criminal fines has been the subject of much debate on this forum for a very long time ( this will no longer be the case from 6th April when the new fee scale is implemented). Sadly, there are a handful of websites (known to this forum) that are known for providing misleading information to debtors and in doing so, the websites encourage debtors to either take court proceedings against either the bailiff companies, the Ministry of Justice or the Police. For a 'fixed fee' the website ev
  9. today I received a call from my very distressed partner a letter had been posted through the letterbox from Marston stating that a final notice had been issued on behalf of HMCTS Gtr Manchester and that they will be returning this afternoon to remove goods for sale at public auction. They were asking for £485.00. He contacted the number at the bottom of the letter which was for the 'enforcement agent' who simply advised that unless he paid that amount today the HCEO would come round along with a locksmith and the police to force entry into our home and remove g
  10. Morning I was woken up this morning by a few knocks on the door at 7.15am. I didn't open the door but a hand delivered letter ("Important Notice") has been posted from Marston for my partner, for a speeding fine that he WAS paying. My Partner tells me he was never able to set this up as a DD and had forgotten about it. He's paid £160.00 of a £350.00 fine. The letter states that the bailiff had intended to remove goods (the house and contents are genuinely mine, and I have some receipts and banks statements to prove this) unless the total amount of £490 is paid immediately
  11. Hi, A friend of mine has called this morning asking for some advice on an area that isn't my expertise. He is at work now and is unable to post so I said I'd try and get some help from CAG. Basically he was stopped for speeding last year and fined £60 on the spot. He sent his cheque in and it was cashed. For some unknown reason the matter was transferred to a large Bailiff Company. He received a letter from them demanding a higher amount. He contacted them explaining the matter was paid and that there was an error. They were pretty unhelpful e says and demanded a copy
  12. Hi everyone i've received some excellent advice before on here and hoping for a bit more advice. I have an arrangement with the magistrates court over unpaid motoring fines which i pay £5 a week based on my circumstances, i missed 2 payments last month when my partner had gallbladder surgery in hospital and i had to look after her and the kids so it just slipped my mind. I received a further steps notice from the courts and went and paid 3 weeks straight away bringing my up to date (i didnt call the enforcement office). My partner had a few complications and had to go back to hospital and i
