    • 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

In the morning can you make contact with the local authority and ask them for the date when they obtained the Liability order. This is very important !!

LFB is right. Tomtubby will know the ins and outs of this sort of thing.

 

Don't like to disagree with you LFB but i don't think a council tax debt can ever go statute barred.

 

Lets see what Tomtubby thinks

This could help......

 

 

Under Regulation 34(3) of the Council Tax (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 1992 it states the following:

 

 

The council should not go to the magistrate’s court and ask for a liability order for council tax if the application is made more than six years after the council tax became due. This is under Regulation 34(3) Council Tax (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 1992"

Thought so, but if this had been in court before six years its already in the hands of the court but if the council had handed it to the court lets say last year it can be statute barred.(out of time).

Firsley you need to know when this was passed to the court.

 

 

so do i just ask them for conformation of when these debts were refered to the courts

 

the only thing is we have paid some of them but these c/tax bills range from 1992 upto 1999 will this affect anything or should i try anyway

 

dont know if this will help

 

the first time we heard about this debt was 2004 which is when a bailiff knocked on our doorwe arranged to pay themwhich we were doing. Then for some reason the council took all the debt back from the bailiff and then we started to pay the council again until february this year when we missed paymentd through not having enough money to pay them.the nextthis bailiff letter came. we have had no contact from the council at all since we set up the arrangement to pay

This is a hard one as it goes back so long and it all depends on what year the bills relate as some of them could well be out of time.

I would get all your paper work together and take it to CAB and they will direct you the best way as they can see the paper work.

It is not against the law not to let them in.

what i would do is get everything of any value out of the house and move any car you have away from the house so they can't levy on it and once you have nothing in the house worth taking or the things you have you need to live, then i would call them and say look i want to pay but i do not have the means at this moment in time so if you want to come and take my goods then do so and if it is found that you dont have enough in goods to pay then they will hand it back to the court.

and start again.

just an update

 

phoned phoenix today and finnally got an answer after phoning alll week

and recieving another letter stating they had sent previous letters both posted and hand delivered.

Asked about making payments but would not be able to pay anythnig till the end of the month and was told phone back at the end of the month and pay what we can when we can

 

Didnt think this sounded right so phoned back again only to be told that if we hadn't paid this outstanding balance by the 21st of august they will send bailiffs out.

I then asked about setting up a payment plan the lady then said she cant do that until the end of the month when we phone back.

does anyone have any advice about this because i get the feeling that they are wanting to send the bailiffs to my door so they can put charges on the bill

Guest janensteve

ig you habea name and a verbal agreement over the phone to pay at end of month, make a note of the call and time, send them a letter confirming that you understand that they have agreed to accept payment at end of month and if your understanding is incorrect, to respond in writing. That way, if they turn up in the meantime, they shouldn't add van charges as they will have estopped themselves from doing so. its just a shame that they are unlikely to onfirm anytrhing in writing other than from the hand of the baillif wanting to pile on his fees.

i got the second persons first name however she rufused piont blank to give me her surname

 

i thought if u phoned them that they would have to give u the option to pay in installments as paying in full would make us miss evry other bill we have which would include rent this years council tax aswell i am getting a bit worried now i really dont want them to come knocking

 

it also states on the bottom of the letter that should we fail to pay in 7 days or make contact ot make arrangements to pay by installments .they will continue action to recover the outstanding amount

no matter what they say if you offer a payment plan they have to at very least think about it so i would send a payment plan to them in writing and if they refuse to accept the plan tell them you want the court to take it back if they say no ask the court yourself and tell them you have offered to pay but the bailiff refused and you require a means hearing.

does anyone know whether this would help me

 

or do yiu think it is to later

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

Re: Your Reference

 

I understand xxxxCouncil has appointed you to recover my Council Tax Liability arrears for 200x of £xxxx.

 

Firstly I would like to make you aware that I am fully aware of my rights and you will not gain entry to my home under any circumstances to levy goods and I know the fees allowed under statute and when these fees can be applied.

 

Due to my circumstances I am unable to pay this in one payment. I advocate a payment schedule of 24 months with 23 months payments at £xx.xx and the balance of £xx.xx to be paid on the 24th month to cover the principle. I understand this may seem a long time but this is a realistic offer that is affordable to me and will allow me to pay future bills issued for Council Tax without them falling into arrears. A greater amount would cause me real and actual hardship.

 

I am able to pay the above amount on the xx of each month, as an act of good faith I have enclosed the first payment chq number xxxxxx. Please advise how you would like future payments made. My personal preference is payment by Standing Order.

 

It should be noted that I am not at any point refusing to pay this debt but only asking for a fair payment period considering my circumstances. And if you are unable to accept my offer I will place the money aside each month until such a time the council take the account back into their management, when I will make payment of the set aside money to the council.

 

Please also send an itemised statement of account that clearly shows what charges have been added and what for, you are required in statute to supply this information and I look forward to this within 14 days.

 

I am sending the council a copy of this letter and requesting that it be filled with my account for further reference.

 

I hope the above meets your approval and I look forward to your timely reply by letter.

 

Yours faithfully,
