    • Thanks for this update. Obviously I'm very pleased that your guitar has been delivered and that you don't have to take any further action about this. On the other hand, I'm slightly disappointed because I was hoping that this might be an opportunity to deliver a serious slap against Hermes. Anyway, who knows why it happened like this – but the most important thing is that the item has been delivered and you're not out of pocket – and also probably you have learned a good lesson – don't use Hermes – or Packlink. It's a recipe for trouble.

    • I have debts of my own and will sort another advice separate for them as now I’m not working and a full time carer for wife & daughter I’m struggling to pay them so will want advice on letters to send them for reduced payments etc But for now I need to know what to do about PayPal as its really making me worry and is making me ill but ive got to try be strong and put on brave face for wife & daughter I dont want them picking up on something is wrong & worrying me
    • Help & Advice wanted on PayPal debt please I had someone staying with me for a while before they moved away and they had access to my PayPal account and was buying a few things and giving me the money no problem but then unknown to me until it was to late they had a gambling problem also and last off used my PayPal to fund online gambling . They ended up using £5,000 through PayPal and the first I knew was when I went to do some online banking and seen £1200 went out of my bank for PayPal so I looked straightaway and stopped / cancelled my bank letting PayPal take from my account . Then I logged on to PayPal and seen transactions 1 after another this going to total the £5,000 so I unlinked my bank & cards from PayPal account . Then nearly 2 weeks after I started getting emails and messages saying my account was in negative balance for £3,800 because they already had the £1200 . I’m in a bit of debt anyway and struggling so for this to happen left me feeling very ill to find they have spent thousands and left me without anything no money to live on or feed family even at the time as that £1200 that was took out of my account was all I had, I’m very annoyed and feeling very mad and very ill. Ive no idea how I can put this right as got no work no money because My wife got struck down with illness and disabled and I also have special needs daughter so I’m now a full time carer for both wife and daughter . I need to sort this but dont know how or best way to go about it. Ive had emails from PayPal and ive replied and explained plus went on live chat etc and asked for it to be logged and for them to please come to some payment agreement even though I cant afford it I know I got to put things right somehow but had no joy in chat and was just told pay into PayPal what I owe. So again I get emails and I reply but not getting any reply back to my emails . Ive not told my ill disabled wife about this right now as it would push her over the top and make her more ill thinking about it and its her Nephew to top things off so I know it would destroy her . Ive tried talking to someone with PayPal in live chat etc and emails as said asked if it can be logged showing ive been in touch regarding this matter and need to try sort it and also asked for them to contact me in writing so hopefully we can come to some sort of agreement to put this right but so far its been about 31 days now since account been in negative and ive had no phone calls or letters from them yet So what can I do and whats best way to deal with this I’m trying to pursue the person for these funds as we speak but know I’m not going to get anywhere

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I have a council tax debt for £867. It went to cour blah blah, council refused payment, bailiff arrived handed me paper walked away, he came back 2 weeks later and delivered paper through letter box.

Husband spoke to different bailiff 2 weeks later was told to ring office was given 3 months to pay, in march we said no we can pay £100 , they said no on phone, we paid them ( sorry) £200, 2 more bailiffs have come and we have tried to contact them but have since found out both have left, they have added lots of £75.35 visit fees to the account.

 

Then Yesterday I get a letter telling me they are coming to remove stuff on Monday 29/06/09, What can I do

I get not let in, they have never been in never signed anything, so @I gather in a good position, can I send them letter saying know rights blah but as you non co-op will be paying council direct at £100 monthh as you refused to accept and cc council same letter?

 

Thanks

regardless of how many bailiffs or how many times they have been to your home if there is no walking possession agreement levy the most the bailiff can charge is £24.50 1st visit £18 2nd visit

its not unknown for a bailiff to levy goods without the debtor knowing (car garden furniture look through window e.c.t.) i would find out if one of these bailiffs has done a levy

 

Then Yesterday I get a letter telling me they are coming to remove stuff on Monday 29/06/09,

and read that letter very carefully

 

 

Forcing re-entry

The law upon the rights of bailiffs to force re-entry to premises in order to remove

goods previously seized has recently been clarified. In Khazanchi v Faircharm

Investments; McLeod v Butterwick [1998] 2 All ER 901 the Court of Appeal held that

bailiffs may only force re-entry where they are being deliberately excluded from

premises. It will thus be necessary in most cases for the bailiff to notify the debtor in

advance of the date and time of the visit in order to remove. If the debtor is then

absent from home, or refuses entry, force may be employed.

Bailiff has no right to entry/force entry etc. He only has the right to peaceful entry. I.e He can walk through a open door squeeze in through a open window and cat flap etc. If you have signed nothing and there has been no peaceful entry then i would personally continue to pay the council direct on the internet. They can only add charges for visits on visit 1 and 2 after that they can visit a million times but cant charge. Unless they levy on say your car.

for this reason and the fact that the op has a letter giving a date to remove i would check if there is a levy

Whyte and co are one of the most disorganised bailiff company i have dealt with. If you look at my avtar it is for one of thier vans (anpr). There motto should be " if your not disorganised like us let us disorganise you then"

the exact wording on this letter is

in absence of full payment we are arranging for seizure removal and sale of goods on or after 29/06/09

be advised removal may take place even if you are not present at the time .

 

from what yo said this is just a threat as no time or date is actually specified.

Or do I just go out on monday.

HI there. I am getting so much help through reading these threads. I have just had a second visit from a bailiff and this is despite contacting the council and the bailiffs office and having replies from them. The bailiff that came here said he had no copies of emails sent. But we have a gate leading into a bif parkign area. He just came through and I spotted him so went out saying that he had come onto my property without permission. He said he was a bailiff and therefore could. I said he couldnt and "respectfully ask you to go outside the gate or sit in your car and I will come out". He wouldnt and carried on talking. They are really unpleasant people! I think he should have gone back out the gate? Should he have done. I also pointed out that we ran a business from this property that was not related to the debt he was collecting and should his presence harm my business I'd sue him! Maybe I was a bit harsh!

(7) A distress shall not be deemed unlawful on account of any defect or want of form in the liability order, and no person making a distress shall be deemed a trespasser on that account; and no person making a distress shall be deemed a trespasser from the beginning on account of any subsequent irregularity in making the distress, but a person sustaining special damage by reason of the subsequent irregularity may recover full satisfaction for the special damage (and no more) by proceedings in trespass or otherwise

 

unfortunately the bailiff is correct squirrel please start your own thread it stops confusion for those trying to help and welcome to C.A.G

I emailed them the I can only afford to pay you £50 a motnth letter and have had this in reply

Thank you for your email.

This debt is being collected under a court liability order and full payment is expected. We do not usually enter into extended payment arrangements unless the household is dependant solely on benefit income.

However in a crisis situation we may enter into a temporary lower arrangement but only after the debt has been secured on goods by a levy being performed. By refusing a levy we are unable to pursue this option for you.

It is our responsibility to make you aware that should the debt remain unpaid and without a suitable arrangement in place the account will be returned to the council with a recommendation for further action. This could involve committal proceedings, bankruptcy, charging order on your property or an attachment of your earnings order.

Kind Regards

Whyte & Company

 

what do I do neext

Nothing but pay them is i think the answer

and ask for a full statement of account of course

This means that you will be summonsed to appear before the magistrates and explain why you offered them £50 a month. As long as you make a offer which is reasonable nobody can do anything. Copy your letter to the council as well. So that in the unlikely event you have to attend you have all the proof on you.
