    • 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

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

Ohmygod what a mess...... I am in a similar position, however, I am yet to recieve a reponse with regards to my dispute.... Only thing you can do is continue to write to both the council and Collect services in trying to get them to provide evidence that they sent you penalty notices, (Make sure you send letters recorded delivery though)I would be inclined to pay nothing to collect services, as, as you are aware you are paying any charges/fees added by collect services..... Not really sure how you would proceed in terms of legal process etc so will alert one of the site team to help you out....

Hi, ambershadow,

 

no, only details I started to receive were from Collect services. That's when I contact council & collect services straight away.

 

The only thing I can see that is going to work is the fact that the warrant seems to be over 180 days, but I need a contact name of their contract manager to be able to get the fine back to the council.

 

 

 

Cheers

Hi, seems that the warrant was sent to Collect Services 2/4/09 and according to a 'contract' if the warrant exceeds 180 days then they should send it back to the council.

Hi

Please could you give further advise on his 'contract' where it refers to the Bailiff's only having 180 days to collect on this type of warrant?

Hi,

 

This is what I'm trying to find out. The contract is between the council & collect services.

 

I certainly do not want these people to come back to my door and scare my family half to death.

 

If no-one can help/advise, then my next course of action will be to take it to the papers.

 

Kind regards

Thanks to Tomtubby - ( although it doesn't help me in my case )

 

Copy of thread "

I should have made it clear that the 180 day limit in which to execute a Distress Warrant is only applicable to MAGISTRATE COURT FINES that are under contract with Marston Group and Philips Ltd.

 

The Contracts expire in 2 months and new companies could also be awarded some of this work. Watch this space !!!"

 

 

What can I do regarding my situation with Collect Services and the penalty charge????

You don't seem to have understood the enforcement process which is here....

 

Parking and Traffic Appeals Service - Bus lane enforcement

 

If you fail to carry out the correct legal process you will end up worse off, just refusing to pay and writing to your MP is pointless. It seems unlikely that the PCN, Enforcement notice, Charge certificate etc all got lost in the post you need to check the address they got sent to and contact the TEC asap. You previously asked for advice a month ago and stated you would complete the Statatury declaration but instead you seem to have decided to write to your MP so its not really surprising nothing has changed except the costs have increased.

Hi, many thanks for the response. I understand but I still cannot recall seeing any letters regarding the PCN hence all the correspondance both to council and Collect Services.

I will of course be contacting the PO regarding the missing letters - but the bailiff action must be sorted first - I refuse to allow these people to put more stress on my family.

 

Even though car is in my name, my wife could have driven it at the time.

 

What can be done to send the warrant back to the council?

 

Kind regards

Hi,

 

Could I ask the council for a new Enforcement Notice - so that the old was is cancelled?

If you bothered to look at the link I posted it explains what you need to do which is file a statatuary declaration something you were made aware of a month ago. It doesn't matter who was driving the owner is responsible for paying the fine. The baliffs are acting correctly and carrying out their job of recovering the monies owed and will carry on doing so until you take the appropriate action.

Hi, many thanks for your kind words - unfortunately that was as a result of an s.172 not this case and it took 4 weeks to get to the SD stage due to BT technical difficulties and I expect how busy people are.

 

I shall complete an out of time PE2 & PE3 form and take it from there.

 

My heart goes out to all those who have to deal with bailiffs for whatever reason -

 

Kind regards
