Hi to my old friends back here again to try and help some more. The story goes: a young man who works for me told me this morning that he had been visited by Marsdens with a warrant following him being late with a payment for a court fine balance £311 now gone upto £611 Young mans parents stressed and no money in the family to pay for anything YM asks sister to take on a wonga loan to help out , sister does but will cost £80 per month for £300 loan I told sister I would help and asked her to repay loan and I would loan to YM interest free I ring the bailiff posing as concerned dad asking for time to pay -No help there from bailiff (what a surprise) fees are set by the courts says he Pay up or else!!! I ring the court asking about the fees - nothing to do with us say court speak to the bailiffs I dont accept this and am given a 0845 number to ring costing £ loads per minute and told to speak to the court collection/payments section is there an alternative number I can call from my mobile-no is the reply I look up an alternative number and call free from my mobile!!! After 10 minutes hanging on to my free telephone number that woukd have cost £5 I speak to a lady who goes on to read YMs account and tells us he is upto date although he missed 1 payment this was made up the following month with a double payment! !! She goes on to say the warrant should not have been issued! ! RESULT!!!! Warrant cancelled! ! £400 saved by a family with little or no resources 10 days before Xmas stress gone fine paid in full as loan from me to YM I ring the bailiff to tell him. " not my fault only doing my job " says he After a few minutes of me winding him up I hang up on him High 5 with YM an afternoon of whistling and jovialty ensues Moral of the story 1/never believe anything a bailiff says or does 2/ challenge everything 3/ always ask for help on this site 4/ dont lose heart and never give in to them Onlymeagain
