    • Email and call your local councillor, their details should be on Google.  Just explain everything to them and they will have the bailiffs off your back in short order.   Do it now, and this could be resolved by tomorrow.  
    • Your latest ramblings make no sense in relation to the issue (which is whether a person hearing an SD can question the maker as to its truthfulness and reject the declaration if they are not satisfied as such).     It's not within 21 days of the hearing it's within 21 days of learning of the conviction of which they were unaware. I don't know what it is you are reading or are referring to but there is no "debtor" involved in an SD that is made to have a conviction set aside. When an SD is heard in court the only officers involved are the court's Legal Advisor and the Magistrates themselves.   I’ve just been looking back at the original post which started all this off to ensure I wasn’t going mad. I’m pleased to say I don’t think I am. Instead I am of the opinion that you did not properly grasp what originally happened to the OP and compounded that by providing incorrect, misleading and confusing advice whilst plucking bits of irrelevant legislation from thin air randomly when you commented. Here’s a few of your quotes and my comments for you to consider.     The OP said no such thing. She said she had moved three years earlier. For some reason unknown, her change of address was not recorded by the DVLA. She said she was happy to accept the speeding allegation. This indicated she was driving (a fact she confirmed absolutely soon afterwards). Nowhere did she ever say she was not the owner of the vehicle at the relevant time.         So, from advice to plead Not Guilty to advice to plead Guilty inside two hours, with no new or additional information provided. Still you mention somebody else being the driver.         What is an “out of time statement” and where and when was one ever mentioned?     Then from the OP:       Your response:       The cause of any confusion was your comments. She said from the outset that she did not live at her old address when the offence was committed (in fact she went to some lengths to explain that was why she did not receive the court papers). Nowhere did she suggest she was not the driver nor that she could not or would not disclose who was.     No it isn’t. A Statutory Declaration voids the original conviction as if it never happened. Section 142 of the Magistrates’ Court Act is not involved with the resurrection of proceedings following an SD. That Section grants the Magistrates powers to re-open cases to rectify mistakes, etc. There has been no mistake here, the Magistrates will not be called upon to re-open the case and could not prevent it being revisited even if they wanted to.   Then we set off into the intricacies of the Statutory Declaration process which is covered above.   I’m not surprised the OP in this particular case became confused. Her matter is straightforward enough (for those who know the law and the process). In summary: She moved; She thought the DVLA had her vehicle registered at her new address but they hadn’t; Her vehicle (with her driving) was detected speeding; She (unsurprisingly) did not receive the notification of that offence or the request for driver’s details; She obviously didn’t reply to that request, she was prosecuted for it, convicted in her absence and without her knowledge.   Happens every day and simple to deal with.   Unfortunately, not when you became involved it isn't. Firstly you grasped the wrong end of the stick by assuming she was not the owner and/or the driver. You advised her to plead Not Guilty on that basis. Then, when you had grasped some idea of what had really happened you suggested she plead guilty to the S172 offence purely on the basis she had moved and the speeding information was sent to her old address. Very poor advice. Then you scared her witless by incorrectly suggesting there was a chance her SD would be rejected if it was thought her declaration may be untruthful. There also followed discussions about the six month time limit for prosecutions and the 21 day limit for SDs to be accepted unconditionally (both totally irrelevant).   I don’t suppose you will accept any of these criticisms but whether you do or not you clearly caused the OP considerable confusion and probably distress. My comments are not based on something I've heard on the net or on barroom (sic) knowledge. They are based on my knowledge of the law and of Magistrates' Court procedures.  It's obvious you will pay no heed to me so when I see any such clearly misleading information provided to an OP by you in this section in future I will simply report it to the site's administrators.
    • Just ignore unless you receive a PAP letter.    Chances are you will run out the clock and it will become SB'd.    
    • Sure I read somewhere that PayPal MADE 2.2 billion dollars in 2018, so I guess losing out on say 10 million a year in negative balance is more cost effective than paying tax in the UK?  Dont get me wrong I’m by no means saying “sod it” they can afford it, I’m just hoping they don’t take me to the cleaners and at least give me time. 
    • I apologise profusely for my actions in this case. I pride myself on my integrity and honesty and I feel shameful for my moment of very poor judgement. As the sole income earner for the family (my wife is on maternity leave), a criminal record would be devastating for us as my employment relies upon a clean criminal record.   On the 22nd I was travelling to London Bridge and needed to connect at Three Bridges. When purchasing my ticket in the morning I only bought a ticket to Three Bridges by mistake.   I made a bad error and I am just so sorry for my actions and the inconvenience caused to all involved.   I am happy to make immediate payment of the unpaid fare and any incurred costs that my mistake have caused.   I would appreciate your consideration and I sincerely hope that you can show some leniency as an criminal conviction would impact my employment and ultimately being able to provide for my family.   Regards   I cant offer to get a monthly ir annual as I only travel a handful of times per year.

Hi, I am new to this site and have just come across a few threads mentioning Toothfairy/Marshall Hoarers Bailiffs. I received this email 2 days ago and have no way of contacting them especially by phone on a charging number. They have no email to contact them on. I did set up a £50 repayment plan from 31.12.12 but was unable to pay due to work problems.

I am in contact with Citizens Advice but don't have an appointment until Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 to get any payday loans settled.

 

Is this email legit and will they turn up at my house this week?

Hi

Please do not ignore this email, you must email them back setting up an affordable repayment plan, even if you can only afford £5.00 a month then state this. Also send them a financial statement (list your income and all outgoings) this will show your disposable income (what you are left with once all outgoings have been paid). Send this by email and set it so you are sent a read receipt, this acknowledges they have read your eamil. Also send the same letter and financial statement by recorded delivery and check it has arrived, this can be done online.

Also state in your letter you will not be discussing any payment proposals with any agents attending your premises all contact must be made via post.

 

If agents arrive at your house try not to answer door but if you do just inform them you have sent correspondence regarding this issue and you are waiting for a reply. The threat of court action is merely standard procedure but they will take this route if you do not offer payment and adhere to that payment.

KAz is right, dont ignore them. I do for a good reason but everything else ive dealt with from other companies has been sorted.

Sending an Income + Expenditure List wont help. They dont have a valid email address and its all done via an online form which is very primitive.

 

No matter if you pay £25, they have a policy NOT to stop interest. So any payment would be negated by interest.

If someone does turn up tell them to shoooo off, they are normally trespassing.

 

Debt collectors have no right to anything you do until they receive a Warrant of execution which will be issued by a court and executed by a legal bailiff which these people do no have.

 

Now to the joking part - "All Visits May Be Chargeable" oh dear - Seems they have shot themselves in the foot. DCAs have a way of sending letters saying May, Might.... And never will ^__^

 

Please be strong :)

Marshal Hoares would be acting in the capacity of Debt Collection Agent.. and NOT as Bailiff in this respect.

 

I am a little concerned that TF have elected to use such a company who might possibly confuse consumers.

 

If they do turn up - then you can ask them to leave - they have no power of entry.

It is extremely worrying if they are claiming to be acting in their capacity of Bailffs when they are only collecting as Debt Collection Agent. You should actually make a complaint to the OFT about this.

They will not show up at your door, don't worry about that.

Even if they did, unless they show you evidence that they have been sent by the Court even a foot in the door is a crime.

 

With other pdls I'd advice to negotiate a suitable repayment plan, with this particular one though, just pay what you can when you can and only the amount actually owed (original loan + 1 month interest + initial default fee minus any payment already made), then simply tell them to stick it where the sun doesn't shine if they demand more (which they will beyond any doubt).

 

If you did pdls the honour of considering them bottom of the barrel lenders toothfairy wouldn't even be stuck to the underside of the barrel, much less inside of it and there is zero evidence of them ever doing more than send threatening communication.

 

Just pay it back when you can so you can later pat yourself on the back, feel good and say you've done the right thing.

Hi, I'm new to this site. If anyone is having problems with MARSHALL HOARES BAILIFFS here is there landline number 01224931013, yet occasionally they will say they are NORTHERN DEBT RECOVERY.

 

Back in October 2012 I applied for a £200 loan with SPEED CREDIT, signed the agreement for £200 loan yet was processed for a £400 loan, I received the agreement for a £400 loan too!!

 

Strange that as I know I didn't sign for that amount as it stated 200 on the one I signed, I contacted them straight away and could not get through so I contacted fos (financial ombudsmen service) to report it, they got in touch with them and gave them 8 weeks to resolve my problem, I had 350 left of the 400, I offers it them all back and wait 2wks for the other 50 pound which they refused to take, they gave me a week to pay it back without interest, I couldn't get the other 50 so was stuffed!!

 

 

I offers them 200 back that way they could reduce my loan to the original amount of £200 but oh no they refused, to cut a long story short, I now owe £1150 I was on a payment plan but I couldn't afford so they cancelled it ad they wouldn't accept my offer, its been in dispute since day 1, I've passed it over to fos to take on and deal with, I have kept every email, text and recorded all calls, they are all mouth no trousers and they will not take you court as the longer they keep the harrasing calls going the more money they make off you by the interest.....everytime they ring I say " HAVE YOU GOT A COURT DATE YET?" they say court date for wat... I reply " TO TAKE ME TO COURT FOR THE OUTSTANDING BALANCE, PLEASE ONLY CONTACT ME WHEN IT'S TO INFORM ME OF THE COURT DATE" HANGUP!!

 

I always say that now n if they get into an argument or hissey fit tell em " you won't accept my offer so the only way this will be resolved is via court so I suggest you take it to court and I will have my say in court with all the harassing evidence I have...hang up.

 

They won't take you court and northern debt recovery, Marshall hoarse bailiffs, is under Gary chapple and oliver larholt director names to whom I have both of there numbers direct, but waste of space, well I've had enough and I am taking legal action against them for harrasment and the obvious fraud they committed by sending me a different loan and agreement.

 

 

If anyone is in the same position I would go see the cab cause they can help to get this sorted and help :)

I'm guessing you had an email from NDR today saying you needed the full amount available in your account from midnight tonight?

 

I just had that one and hit reply twice with the same response. I said as was my legal rig I withdrew any right for them to take money from my account, that if they did I would report them as it would be illegal. I also then went on to say that I was reporting them to the relevant authorities as I had sought independent legal advice and they had no leg to stand on other than to ask for their original loan plus one month interest which is all I will repay. I then mentioned how bad they looked pursuing the debt through more than one company and that the FOS would love all the correspondence i had from them. I gave them until 5pm to acknowledge receipt of my email and said if I didn't have it by then I would assume they were willingly breaking the law and would be straight on to all authorities interested and ensuring that I did everything in my power to make sure they lost their licence.

 

Haven't heard anything yet. Next step is a recorded phone call, which I am going to make on loudspeaker and record. I've also rang my bank cancelling CPA and would suggest you did the same. I think they are running scared as they know they are under serious investigation!

If you want to cancel any payments through your bank, you must get it done in writing and get written confirmation of the acceptance of your instruction. If you call them, the call's never seem to be found or recorded if they let the payments through.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

Yep, best to do it in branch and get a piece of paper signed by the branch manager confirming that they've done it, can be a pain to get it, but short of changing to a different bank its the only 100% safe way.

The following article will be in the CAG newsletter which is being sent to all members at this moment.

 

OFT issues rules for continuous payment authorities

The OFT has issued a set of principles for businesses using continuous payment authorities (CPAs) amid concerns that customers are not always being made aware of what they are signing up to and may be misled about their rights to cancel.

They have clarified that customers can cancel a CPA with either the company taking the payment, or with the bank or card provider.

Once a customer has told the bank or card issuer that they have stopped permission for the payments, the bank or card provider must halt payments and has no right to insist that you agree this first with the company taking the payments.

hi. I took out a 100 pound loan with community payday fell behind with payment after been poorly. had other financial problems too. received only 1 email after mg debt had been passed on to mh bailiffs. this was 18 months. had voicemails and texts saying I will be getting a bailiffs to my door within 7 days. never had one. got paid on a Friday checked ny balance on the Saturday. they had gone and taken 156 pounds from my bank without me knowing about it. phoned them spoke to a woman only for her to tell nr how it's all my fault. she kept talking over Me so I demanded to speak to someone higher up. a Man called back ten minutes later saying it's all my fault and there is nothing he was willing to do . to say he shouted at me was an under statement . I'm hoping citizens advice will be able time help as the bank said they can't retrieve my money as it has already left my account . this wasn't a direct debit either. has anyone else experienced the same ancient does anyone know if this is legal????????????

Go to your bank, demand a chargeback as it was an unauthorised transaction. File a full complaint with the idiots at MHB ( they are NOT bailiffs. they are a DCA) and send a letter to the OFT.

 

Also, STAY OFF THE PHONE. Only deal with financial matters in writing. They will say and do ANYTHING over the phone.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Do you think people should be complaining about the banks who keeping giving their customers false information too?

 

"We can't stop a continuous payment"

"We can't issue a chargeback"

 

Consumers need to be protected from these fiends by their banks and this just isn't happening. It's a disgrace.

Have you gone to both the FOS and OFT, they are actively taking complaints against PDL companies at the moment, I've had a partial result with my complaint against another PDL and am pushing for financial compensation.

 

All complaints are counting at the moment so yours could be the one which makes the OFT decide that they will not be renewing any of their licences.

 

I still maintain it should be 'one licence per trading name' to stop widespread abuse and mis-representation (and false information gathering).

Yes, to both the OFT and the Financial Ombudsman :)

Well after chasing Banks etc and regulators/MPs etc in the past few years, Letter from HSBC change to our Terms & Conditions:- D.D/S.Os etc pay out on a certain day if no funds to pay then they will do a further check in the afternoon to see if sufficient (cleared) funds are available at that stage of the day i.e. by 3.30 p.m.

 

Anybody followed me on this subject the last few years would know I was trying to get Banks to stop debit at 00.01A.M. on a day to pay Direct debits before credits to accounts etc and ignoring credits to account on that day even at the openig time of the Bank, all the reply received eventually was tell the counter assistant that deposits were for that days transactions (Debits) no firm answer. (Told not a guarantee).

 

so a step in the right direction here.

 

Also where Debit Card recurring payment being changed so that you can cancel these with Bank OR retailer.

You're already allowed by law to cancel recurring payments with the bank, they just have to wake up and realise it!
