    • read it proprly.. it doesn't say WILL anything and original creditors don't do court as they don't want the judge delving into their business model nor the bad publicity.   as for the FOS you just have to let it run. yours is a very short time since yo put it into them typically it always takes 6-9mts normally before they move on anything though they usually send you an ACK they have the complaint.        
    • Since the last post on this thread I have sent a complaint to the FOS but have not heard anything from them as yet either, I'm guessing they're rather snowed under and on reduced staff so no real surprise.   Still had nothing approaching help from lending stream but today they emailed me default notices for the loans, again demanding I phone them and pay up in full or they will begin court proceedings.   Any advice as to how I should proceed please?
    • Hi,   I received two PCNs in October 2019 from Havering Council. All the below applies to both PCNs, as the correspondences were at the same time:   Fast forward to February 2020, I file witness statements on grounds that I made representations within 28 days but did not receive a rejection notice.   The TEC cancelled charges.   Havering write to me asking for supporting evidence of representations that I made.   I email them screenshots with timestamps of the representations.   In early March Havering reply to me by email 'confirming receipt of email and both cases are now on hold pending an investigation. Please allow time for a full response to be sent.'   Fast forward to 18th June Havering write to me the attached:  Havering Charge Certificate.pdf   Now, it seems as though the sender of this letter is not up to date with both cases and is unaware of the TEC's decisions, as well as the email correspondence.   My questions are, 1) What should I do next? and 2) Is there a way to use their misstep to avoid paying for the PCN entirely?   Thank you.

    • 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 everyone, hope someone can help - i have had a nightmare.

 

I will be very brief:

 

I own a tv/hifi /pc shop. Bailiff turned up on behalf of a HCEO 1 month ago. i wasnt there, so my staff took an envelope off him and they got me to speak to him on the phone. they were looking for some £1400, but they just had an address on the writ, no name. i told them that it was probably down to one of my tenants, (now left) as i rent parts of my shop out. They said they would get back to me when they found out more, i told them i would help if i could.

 

when i got back i saw the writ and a walking posesion agreement (unsigned) for goods in the shop to the value of the debt.

 

I rang my lawyers and told them what had happened. They said that because there was no name of anyone on the writ it was unenforcable, but to check with the issuing court to find out more. The court would not speak to me about it cos i wasnt the person on the writ!

 

 

this week, they came back and told me it was my debt as i owned the shop. i told them it was a load of rubbish and told them to get out.

it was very awkward cos the shop was full of customers etc. I told them there was no way i was paying anything, and they said they would order a lorry to come over and take goods, and it woukld cost me even more £££ I told them if they touched anything that i would call the police.

 

After about 1.5 hrs of me telling them they had the 'wrong guy' they called the police saying that there could be breach of the peace.

 

4 cars turned up and twice as many officers. in the very end i paid the bill on advice of the police, and under all the pressure.

 

the bill was:

fees bought forward from the first visit £1890

poterage fee £125.00

other £370.00

+ vat £76.75?

= £2461.75

 

i see that the original 'judgment debt' was for £700.00

 

not sure how the hell they get to this figure, but iam sure all this is illegal. i paid on my debit card, but need the money back asap.

 

Can anyone help pls as iam not sure what route to take.

 

Thanks in anticipation.

I would make a complaint to the police as they are NOT debt collectors and as you were being reasonable the only potential source of a breach of the peace was from the bailiffs.

 

Too often the police react in this way having no knowledge of this area of the law.

 

You should also look at getting the judgement set aside if you have no knowledge of it.

This is exactly what happened to me. l have now also found out that the bailiff in question is not a certificated Marston nor selfemployed bailiff. As for the police, it seems that they tend to assist the bailiff rather than advice him of his obligations or to ensure themselves that he has all the required documentation. Something got to be done and although l am in the process of filing all and everything l can, l think a more concerted effort by all of us who have suffered something similar is needed.

Why not geet hold of Tomtuby, they are the bailiff expert on this site and should be able to offer more advice. If the bailiff wasn't certified or employed by a company then it is theft, and you need to report the matter to the police 'obtaining monies by deception' comes under the Fraud Act...

l have another thread here and TT's really given me some good advice which will be used as l proceed. However, TT can only do so much and the rest is up to the rest of us. The problem remains the same, though, so many threads with similar problems, but, no common approach. Until we are many we will be weak and individually not have any major impact. We need to make the authorities aware of what's going on and that a major change is needed urgently.

I totally agree with you there........To many people are being taken for a ride I was one of them But tt got me a refund which was due still wating for form 4 to be done....

 

For people hat have laws to abide by I just don't understand how they are all getting away with it.

I think there needs to be a leaflet drop lol in every single household in the uk regarding bailiff issues and what they can't and can do with regards bullieing and so forth to many peole suffer and they shouldn't have to.

 

 

And TT does a fantastic job But she only has one pair of hands as we all do

I've checked out the fees hceo's should charge and there should be fees of about £150 on a judgement of £700?

 

Have made many, many enquiries etc. and it looks like i could be getting the money back.

 

It would be nice to issue a fatwa on this hceo. Is there a form for that?!!

Its called a Form 4, and you need to get it in asap... he clearly has exceed his authority in collecting from you when you were not the original creditor. Sorry... I mean original debtor.

 

I think you should also get your local MP involved here.

I think you can put one in but it is adviseable to contact the bailff (in writing) first and give them a chance to respond. I am soon going to court with a form 4 and have been told by a few clever peeps that the judge looks more favourably upon those who have attepted to get a reasonable outcome from the bailiffs first. Have a loook on here www.biliffadviceonline.co.uk. There is a section specifically on complaints .

Someone i know received a refund and they said that it was in full and final settlement of the matter, implying that if the payment was cashed then one couldnt take any further action.

 

Is this how they get away with so much?, or would that not stand and you could take further action against them?
