Yes, but the council stated that banks do not disclose payments going into your accounts, so thats their excuse.Scott & co stated that they noted the contents of my email.

So no excuses from either of them .I will add the regulations on to the email I send the legal department tomorrow.

Just makes you wonder how many others they have bullied this way.

The council can take money directly from your benefit rather than your bank account, the current rate is £3.25 per week.

My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.



Please do not seek, offer or produce advice on a consumer issue via private message; it is against

forum rules to advise via private message, therefore pm's requesting private advice will not receive a response.

They allready do this with a previous CT bill taking the money direct from my benefit.I thought it was round about £3.00-£4.00 a week.I think this is the maximum they are allowed by law to take.But they want me to pay this years CT bill as well.Its this bill they have handed over to Scott & Co for collection, not a previous bill as its getting paid by deductions.Council tax bill for the year April 2009 - March 2010.The cheeky sods have today sent me the total bill again stating on it that its been handed to sherriffs officers for collection and I have to pay the whole lot at once.Its not even the end of the financial year as the bill is up to March 2010.

They are just taking the ****.If I was paying monthly, as you can, there would still be 5 months payments to go.I have been told by a relative of mine (my Mum) that while she was on holiday she was a day late in paying her CT bill, she has always paid on time ,they sent her a letter threatning her with Sherriffs Officers as well for being a day late.This is just not on.I am sure that as I allready pay CT by direct deductions from my benefit they should not even be asking me to pay this one at the same time as the deductions would continue until such time that all bills would be paid and you would eventually maybe catch up on CT payments.

They ignore the fact you are on benefits and at risk as a vunerable person ie... someone receiving benefits and in my case disabled as well.Despite me telling them numerous times they don't give a ****.I have even informed them I will be on benefits the rest of my life and I am unable to work ever again.All they want is their money.

Every three years I still have to attend a review at my local job centre and fill up the numerous forms and state why I cannot work, despite being classed as severley disabled by the job centre in the first place.They just tell me its the rules.Its a joke, but if I said I was a junkie, well you get everything.It makes me sick that junkies get Incapacity benefit because they are unable to work.Its self inflicted
