    • Just so I'm clear then, are you posting here in an official capacity on behalf of the West Midlands Police? There's no reason for you not to answer that.
    • The discrepancy in your comment is the fact you stated you worked for the west midlands police and you then later went on to say you would report this website to the police, please explain why you would report a forum website to the force you work for? Would you not investigate it yourself?  You have also failed to acknowledge the complaints of all the victims of this individual who you claim is a 17 year old child and could not have been capable of doing any of this, so what you’re saying is that none of these fraudulent and evasive crimes were committed and that we should remove all findings due to you individually going out of your way to go to the suspects family home and not getting in touch with any of the victims about your findings, instead you, an alleged member of the police force, has come onto this forum website to disclose information about your investigation? You, an alleged police officer, have also blackmailed the members of this forum to remove their findings or you will threaten to prosecute, is this how prosecution works? I look forward to hearing from you LouiseAnnMarie
    • Hi ,   I don’t need to correspond with everyone who messages I will only liaise with the admin of this website going forward, I have tried to be fair and help by asking to keep personal information pictures etc of a underage child of the internet as this is against the LAW and will create many more serious problems   However, answering your question   I deal with all aspects of cyber bullying / online crime. 
    • Hi mark,   There isn’t any discrepancies in my comments at all, I do work for West Midlands police and this can be verified by the concerning party in addition, I have already filled a reported as this is what the family wished to do, if you read carefully it says I will also report this website and it’s admins if they accept this sort of behaviour, it is against the law to post pictures of a underage child on the internet including personal information which includes addresses age pictures etc   The boy who you have spoke about is 17 years old and is classed as a child you need to remove all pictures and personal information or this will excel into something a lot more serious I have warned you already if you don’t wish to listen and oblige to what is the LAW. I will make sure you will be prosecuted.   If it was your 17 year old child I’m sure you wouldn’t like for pictures of them to be plastered over the internet.    Thanks

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I cant understand why its taken so long either - just shows how efficient they can be at times!

Council are desperate for money at the moment, mostly due to the Icelantic crash, so they are grouping debts, some as far back as 1990's. Im sure they have little gremlins in their back offices trawling over unpaid CT reaching back eons ;)

Sorry Martin I had to chuckle to myself there, :punless they have a nice bailiff dealing with this ( which I highly doubt but you never know) the bailiff would just laugh down the phone and say pay up.. I would suggest emailing the bailiff company and let them know what is occurring and ask them to give you time to contact the council so to get this sorted.

 

 

Yep I see your point-but its weekend-Council not there.

Bailiff could well return-but they could return in any event between an email being dealt with.Thing is advising that you arent paying and are taking it up with council at least lets them know-up to them if they listen or not.

 

Suppose depends as you say on the Bailiff....those who have phone recording facilities could put it to good use here-we know they dont like those.!

Just a bit of an update.

 

The wife has been in touch with the council, they are calling off the bailiff for the ex husbands debt but she is liable for the other (we knew that anyway). Went through and confirmed amount and dates etc (no charges added). She offered to pay them direct but they said gone too far. They also confirmed the bailiff cannot break in.

 

The wife then went to citizens advice, they phoned the bailiff who is being an @sshole. He said he had the power to break in anytime he wanted - the woman from CA said no you cant to which he replied 'i can do what I want!'. He also said he wanted full payment for both debts regardless and had the lady in tears he was so abusive to her. Also phoned his company who where not interested.

 

The woman at CA advised us to contact the police as he is making threats - is it worth us calling them? Jacobs (the bailiff company) have online payment so we are going to pay it off in one go, but can I report this nasty meathead to anyone?

For the debt you do have to pay is there a Council Tax Reference Number on the paperwork you have? If so then you may pay using the Council website or automated phone service - your payment is accepted regardless of what the Council tell you. If not then ring the Council back and ask for it - do not tell them why you want it, say you need it to cross reference payments previously made.

I have to concur with PT, pay what you owe to the council, then what you need to do is make a Formal complaint to the Chief Executive of the council.

What you have to remember is the bailiff is working on behalf of them and they are fully responsible for the actions of their bailiff, if you can ask the lady at the CAB to write a small statement and enclose that, then you need to also send copies of that complaint to the bailiff company letting them know you have made a formal complaint to the council.

You have proof that this bailiff has acted aggressively and given false information.

Have a read through this as this will help.

Thanks for all your help everyone.

 

We are going to pay it today (lucky we have just enough put aside which was our rainy day money).

 

I had a look to see if the bailiff is registered and his licence is up for renewal in september - is it worth us sending a copy of the complaint to the court that issued his licence?

I would write any complaints to the chief executive first and the bailiff company, .. A form 4 complaint to the courts is really a last resort. It may end up costing you more in the long run.

Im sorry to disagree with you there Martin but it may do harm, especially in the OP's pocket.

Complaints need to be sent to the chief exec and bailiff companies before a form 4 to the court.

before sending one of these please make sure you have exhausted all other complaints procedures first. Make sure you have enough evidence to go ahead with this course of complaint, and be prepared for what is to come, also be warned that you may incur costs for the other side.

All sorted now - paid council direct. Funny how one person says pay bailiff direct and another says yes thats fine and takes payment!

 

I am going to complain to the council and the bailiff company (I called them today to tell them it was paid - they put the phone down on me when I mentioned complaining).

 

I didnt realise complaining to the court was such a formal thing, i just wanted to put a spanner in the works for a truly nasty man (he seemed to get upset when I asked if he had been bullied at school).

 

Thanks for all your help it is much appreciated.

A Form 4 is the WRONG route. What should be happening is that a FORMAL COMPLAINT needs to be made to the Council marked for the attention of the Chief Executive.

 

In addition, I am aware that there have been recent complaints made to the Office of Fair Trading concerning the WORDING on recent letters from Jacobs.

 

PS: Have you established when the council obtained the Liability Order? This is a very important point !!!

I didnt say it was the 'right' route TT, but in some cases it is a must.

I quite agree W but there are some bailiff companies who would appear to be employing the services of a QC to represent their bailiff at a Form 4 Complaint and as can be seen from a post on CAG last week, a poster found herself liable to over £3,000 in legal fees after the Judge threw the Form 4 out.

 

There have been representations made to the Attorney General concerning the way in which courts are incorrectly dealing with Form 4 Complaints. Lot is happening in the background but as I have said many times, any complaint should first go to the local authority.

I couldnt agree more, but I personally feel that SOME Judges throw out these cases without understanding what a form 4 is. I am glad it is under some sort of investigating
