Hi Sorry about your problems. The sooner this evil law is recinded the better.

Now reading the threads on here - the police seem to regard balifs as a civil law and are not interested according to numerous posts on here.I belive imprisonment for C/tax is not in forcenow. Also if you have a disabled child to look after you could be classsed as "vunerable". The balif has I think no right to force you to meet him - it should always take place at the premises on the court order. You have seen one of those? Is the bailf certified or just a thug working for someone else. Did you check with the court to get the details of the CCJ/injunction.

 

Report your council to the OFT - Trading standards and your MP.

I did with my case after paying off a balife firm with a struggle,complained to MP and within a month got all my monies back. You can win sometimes.:)

Hope this helps a bit.

you wont be sent to prison at all, go to the court on Monday ask to speak to the court manager tell he/she what has been said and also ask to be means tested by the court dont let the ass in your house. prison is a very last resort and you can only be sent to prison if you refuse to pay or you tell the court two or three times you will pay and have no intention.

 

bailiffs will try and scare you so you will pay there and then ask the court to be means tested and do it that way and also explain that he never gave you a time or date when he was comming so how did you know he was going to turn up unless youread minds.

 

and from your numbers up there you will have £500 to pay

Report him to the council too! they are responsible for the way the bailiff companies they employ conduct themselves. This is shocking behaviour - why would he ask you to meet him somewhere. I don't like the sound of this at all. Go to the council offices and ask for a copy of their complaints procedure - then write a letter of complaint detailing this bailiff's actions.

 

If you need help with the letter I'll happily draft it for you.

 

As Let's Fight Bailiff's says, go to the court also and report his behaviour.

Hi Ell-en & ruthmetoo.

Yes it does sound dubious - I bet he wants to meet the OP where there are no witnesses. I thought a warrent could only be executed(delt with) at the address listed by the court order. I bet as I said before he's some thug hoping the OP does not know their rights.

Report his actions to everyone you can think of - if he is a certified (mental?) balliff then he could have his licence and bond forefitted.

You say that the bailiff took your car and this reduced the debt down to £1,300. Did you ever receive a breakdown for this sale?

 

What charges were applied by the bailiff for the removal and what additional charges have been put onto your account?

 

What car was this and how old?

 

Was the car yours?

 

PS: The thread to prison is just that ....a threat!!!

l begin to feel like Gustavius in wonderland! This is just not real anymore! Unless we can do something to stop these bailiffs, who by now are a complete law until themselves, we are going to see worse. The police is not interested, the courts are unvilling to act and the government are tacitly supporting them, why, they can behave as they do. Where are we living? Burma? Something got to be done and in my opinion, it's very urgent or this will get out of hand completely. Next stop, armed bailiffs dressed in black ''subduing'' debtors with force and carrying them off to re-education camps?

Did you know that there are no ballifs in Northern ireland? Years ago the IRA threatend them with extinction -seems to have worked!

 

Bailiffs were seen as working for the brittish Gov and was killed for this so they stopped using bailiffs in NI it was not just a threat it did happen.

l know this my friend and do not misunderstand me, l think all of you are doing a just super duper job. lt was you and TomTubby who got me started off in the right direction, why, l shall always hold you in the highest regards. However, l am not of the opinion that individually trying to change the current system through our politicians will work. All of them are nothing but corrupt, pandering, selfgratifying, lying, lazy, money grubbing, dishonest vermin. l'm more for the Northern Ireland solution, but, perhaps a tad less violent.

Hi,

The reason that the system does not change is because the very people who are supposed to protect us from these companies are probably connected to them in some way. Is there a list of what MP is on the board of which company. Talk about vested interests!

I am sorry to be critical but it is no wonder that we have bailiff's and companies acting as they do because many debtors make it SO EASY FOR THEM.

 

A car has APPARENTLY been sold for £1,300 and you have not demanded any proof or requested a breakdown!!

 

As a matter of URGENCY you need to be sending a Subject Access Request to the company to request the screen print of this entire account to show all transactions and you also need to request copies of the auction receipts.

 

Crucially, you need to ENSURE RIGHT NOW that the bailiff who seized the vehicle was certificated as otherwise you will be entitled to make a claim against the company. See the sticky section to see if the bailiff was certificated.
