Hi all Im new iv been searchin the web for help and stumbled across this site ,

 

The problem i have is my partner is on job seekers allowence after losin his job and we have a 6 month old daughter so im on s.m.p anyway my partner owed moneyto the bank for his overdraft only £753. but they passed it onto METROPOLIAN COLLECTION SERVICES anyway we agreed to pay £40pm bk to them however i made a claim fro child tax creds and workin tax creds jointly with otherhalf but stupidly put his bank account details on the form instead of mine so inland has paid £367. straight to them through the bank account details i provided ,

 

anyway after they been denying havein received that money for over a week they said they had it today and now refusing to give it me unless i can prove it was not for him and for me they want inland rev documents of my award notice , But problem is its a joint claim his name appears on the award notice so there going to refuse to give it me arnt they ?

Hi Always.

Not sure what to advise but I'm certain someone here will help.

My initial thought is have you contacted the inland revenue and explained you supplied them the wrong bank account in error? They may have a procedure for getting the money back. I don't know but worth an ask. I'm sure they would want you to have the money for the correct reasons and not the debt collectors...

Good luck.

You need to tell the ir what has happenned. That way they will force metropolitan to return your money or ir will pay you and get on metropolitans case and so on.


I hate bailiffs. Let me know if you have had a problem with them. I am sure i could upset them.

I now have experience with Securitas Security Services (UK) Limited and won in court against them 01/2018

Tax Credits are under no obligation to retrieve the money as you provided the account details and they paid into the account you gave them. However you should contact them immediately and give them the correct account details to stop any further payments going into the wrong account. They may intervene on your behalf but are under no obligation to do so.

 

The money - being child tax credit is not for him or for you, it is paid to you for your child, which is what the award notice would show. "You have one qualifying child, you will receive xxxx family element and xxxx child element". The same as child benefit, it is paid to you as the child's parent but the money is for paying for your child, not you or your partner. If you didn't have a child you wouldn't be receiving it. So his name being on the award notice doesn't make any odds.


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.
