I have now received a reply

 

Dear ******

Thank you for your e mail I have received.

The loan was taken out on 04.07.2009 for the amount of £375.00, and was agreed to be paid back on 25.07.2009.

This didn't happen therefore there has been interest added and will continue to increase until it has been paid.

We can accept a £50 payment for the first 2 months, it will then need to be increased as the whole outstanding debt needs to be paid within 6 months.

Please call 01992-703726 to make payment by debit or credit card.

Or send a cheque made payable to Marston Group Ltd.

Or into our bank account details as follows below.

Lloyds Tsb

Sort Code-30 95 74

Account- 00845744

Any problems please e mail me or telephone me on 01992-703726

you cant demand it by law, if a bailiff does not give a breakdown then you dont need to pay them.

 

The law decides what the fees are anyway, Havnt read your thread, what the debt and how much & i'll calculate the bailiffs fee from the legislation.

breakdown of what? the debt or the fees?

 

if its the debt, the loan company should say how the debt acrued and you need to check the fees and interest is compliant with the law.

For the benefit of people on this thread it is unlikely that this debt has gone to court, Wonga tried this approach last year on me but I had already found CAG and knew how to tell a bogus account from a real one.

 

Marstons and JBW have both taken to using their 'powers' in the debt collecting world by frightening people into believing their debt has gone to a high court and they are able to collect - what you need to do is contact Trading Standards and your local MP and tell them that no court paperwork has been received.

 

This is a nasty lot to deal with and they will think nothing of doing a daily search on you to foul up your credit rating.

 

Get your local MP involved asap to get rid of both Wonga and Marstons.

 

Believe you me if it had gone to the High Court and you hadn't turned up you would be in prison now. The High Court isn't like the 'normal' court sytem. You would have had plenty of prior paperwork.

Is this a CCJ or a high court writ?

 

CCJ, the fee is £45.

 

Writs are prescribed in the HCEO regs 2004. A sliding scale of fees according to size of debts. Dont be bullied by marstons, they are famous for their locksmiths threats, treat them as common criminals because they will try to swindle you by charging fees pretending they have transported your goods to sell them auction.

 

It might be a simple debt, no court order, therefore fees £0.00.

neither - there is no record for either theotherside or myself with the courts it seems that although the original letter makes it sound like it has gone to the high court from the very helpful people on here it appears that Marston's are being very deceptive in that they are sending a threating letter (see above) which makes it seem like there has been a judgement and that they are due to levy goods when in reality there are just debt collectors with this account rather than court appointed bailiffs for this debt

the last thing I can do is to go public regarding this matter as it would jepodise my job; how else can I fight back but remain anon?

It is a criminal offence to make a false representation to obtain a money transfer. s2 Fraud Act 2006. It is also a offence to impersonate an officer of the court s20 Solicitors Act 1974.

 

It looks like you are dealing with a trickster who has bought a pile of debts and trying it on.

Do nothing then, no court order, your obligation is only to the originating creditor. There is no contract between you and marston requiring you give them money.

There is no writ or CCJ, it is a company who are failing to get sufficient bailiff work branching out into 'domestic commercial debt collecting' and misusing their powers in this respect.

 

Complaining to your local MP and Trading Standards won't put your job at risk, and will simply highlight the lengths that Wonga go to to get their 'wonga'....

 

You need to get your head out of the 'I will loose my job if my credit rating goes' as Wonga will already have done loads of searches on you, and they need to be stopped.

I am thinking about going to trading standards with this. Their email saying it nedds to be clear within 6 months is nonsense as well as wishfull thinking.

 

It does seem like they have got a job lot of wonga as we both got them the same day!

Putting them in deep doodoo is bad enough, but deep dodo will cause them SERIOUS problems! ;)

 

Clearly, socks, they are just trying it on. I hope one of you kicks up a fuss. Good luck.
