    • i would suggest that you stick to researching on here only. use our search top right for say CTAX or liability order.   you seriously have some wild theories, but those are understandable.   as i have said, there won't be a court hearing you need nor would that help you at all nor are expected to attend, it's not like that, it's merely a rubberstamp exercise .   there is no right of forced entry for bailiffs collecting CTAX debts. the bailiff process is one of a letter which will be entitled Notice of enforcement, this gives you 7 days to pay the sum it outlines with an associated fee of £75 for it being sent. the 2nd step will be a visit, you have no legal remit to engage with them at all, i i would not do so under any circumstances, that visit will add a further £235 fee those are the only things a bailiff can do. the most they can charge is a total of £310.   police do not ever get involved in civil matters like CTAX debt. not sure where you ever got that idea from.   its saturday now so use the W/end wisely, get reading up HERE ONLY it might well pay you on monday to go RING the council CTAX dept and plead poverty etc etc. it might also pay you to find the email address or even better phone number of your local MP and get him involved. they can do wonders.   dx

    • Hi Stu and dx1000uk,   I have done the online assessment and as I suspected I already receive the maximum benefits available to me.   Yes I was referring to the fact that some times I know that non-payment of council tax can lead to imprisonment so thanks for clarifying.   let's say I can't make their demands for payment and they do send bailiffs in, I assume these are the type of bailiffs I can just not let in and then after a certain amount of attempts they give up right? does the council then not send the police round? This is what I can't work out and worries me.   The council already know that I am struggling and can't make the payments but when do I get my chance to tell a court or the police that it's not that I don't want to pay but that I can't pay?    Walshy

    • I sent in the bailiffs to the BBC. They collected £350. It made me smile.

    • 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!

Well 3 weeks ago i wrote to Barclaycard after some research to discover this tangled web of who buys who and what...

 

My old Providian Credit card that i had between 2003 and 2006 with a pathetic £500 credit limit was bought out by Monument, which in turn was bought out by Barclaycard.

 

Well as i said 3 weeks ago i wrote to barclaycard, told them i was wanting to claim my PPI back on the providian card, within a few days i had a letter saying they were looking into it and gave me the standard we have 8 weeks etc..

 

Today i had a letter from Barclaycard asking me to accept in full (which i will) the lovely sum of £403.00.. wow i nearly fell over my limit was only £500 during the whole of the 3 years i had my credit card..

 

Thank you barclaycard, what a speedy response!!

Hi Shaun

 

The address for Providian Credit Crads (which were bought out by monument, which in turn was bought out by Barclaycard and they WILL accept full responisbility for it) is as follows

 

Barclaycard

Customer Relations Department

PO Box 9131

51 Saffron Way

You will get a reply from Barclaybard saying that Providian did not use PPI but instead provided something called PBP (Payment Break Plan) but treated it the same way as PPI.

 

Hope that helps

 

Best Steve

Oki Doki...

 

Well here is my basic letter, which served its purpose, right or wrong i sent this to all my PPI people and they all responded to it, but using the correct addresses for each one.

 

Also you dont have to provide actual account details if you dont know them as long as you can confirm who you are and the address you were at when you held the cards..

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

Re: Providian Visa owned by Barclaycard Account **** **** **** 1459

 

I am writing in relation to the above payment protection (PPI) policy which i believe was mis-sold to me in relation to my visa card.

 

I believe you have not treated me fairly for the following reasons;

 

· The PPI was added without my knowledge..

 

· You have been punished by the Financial Services Authority for failing to treat customers fairly and I do not believe that the PPI I bought was sold in my best interest.

 

Unless you can prove that the policy was fair and reasonable and that I was treated fairly when I was sold the insurance, I demand a full refund of all premiums, and subsequent interest on these payments, that I have paid in relation to this policy. I also expect 8% interest to be added to each payment I have made as this is the statutory amount a court would pay.

 

I look forward to your full and prompt response to this letter. If this matter is not settled within eight weeks of this letter I shall be contacting the Financial Ombudsman to investigate my complaint.

 

This letter is in respect of the above account that was issued by Providian Credit cards.

 

Yours faithfully
