Hi, -


**** - Just checked when the warrant was given to collect services - 2/4/09 ( more than 180 days )


I received a letter from Collect Services Limited dated the 9th April 2009 regarding an unpaid penalty charge. This amount was for £107.88

I had been away when it arrived and replied to them and Council on the 21st April 2009 disputing the charge.

Letter arrived dated 27th April 2009 from Council saying that it is in the hands of the bailiff. !!!!

Letter arrived dated the 29th April 2009 from Collect Services demanding £241.87 !!!!

I sent letter dated 7th May 2009 both to Council and Collect Services still disputing the penalty charge.

Letter arrived dated 8th May 2009 demanding £308.57 from Collect Services.!!!!

Letter arrived dated 13th May 2009 confirming receipt on my letter dated 11th May 2009 would still continue unless instructed by their client.


Letter arrived dated 20th May 2009 warning of intended seizure of vehicle!!!!

I sent letter dated 23th May 2009 still disputing this charge.

Letter dated 10th June 2009 demanding £378.72 from Collect Services.!!!!!

11th June I speak to Council who state that they cannot do anything and I should contact the CAB office.

As luck would have it I manage to get through to the CAB office who simply advised me to pay it!!!!!!!

18th June - MP sends letter to council

12th July - Receive letter from Collect Services now demanding payment

12th July - Council have no record of letter from MP so I copy it and hand it in person.

13th July - Council as per before say they cannot do anything.!!!! Must seek legal advice


I am disputing this charge and CAB and Council are telling me just to pay the £378.72!!!!!

I have not received any letters from Council regarding the charge. I am certainly not willing to pay Collect Services £378.72

QUESTION - Can I instruct Collect Services to return warrant to council as it has passed it's 180 days? If so, who should I send letter to?

Kind regards
