I wonder if anyone can help me - I have a CCJ for Hewittsons solicitors relating to school fees for United Church Schools Trust.

I have made the monthly payments agreed under the CCJ for the last 4 years.


Two weeks ago I received a letter from Redwood Collections informing me they had now been instructed to recover the debt.


There was no statement,

letter of transfer or any paperwork to support their claim.


This letter informed me that I was to cease payments to Hewittsons immediately and send payments to Redwood.


I didn't respond as I expected to receive some sort of notification letter from Hewittsons that this was the case.

Nothing has been received from Hewittsons.


This weekend I received another letter from Redwood which was very threatening

informing me that I am incurring costs which they will seek to recover and will institute bankruptcy proceedings plus all costs etc.


Strangely, at the bottom of the letter they print a statement -


"Our company has the sole control of your account.


Payment must be sent to this office. DO NOT PAY A DOORSTEP COLLECTOR,

without first gaining our authority."


Redwood still did not provide any supporting paperwork, just these threatening letters.


I have continued to pay Hewittsons under my CCJ agreement.


I wondered if anyone could give me any advice before I make contact with anyone.


Many thanks

you'll prob find the CCj was never registered


and this is a bogus debt?




please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Thanks for replying.



The debt is mine but I wondered if someone else can now take over the CCJ without applying to

the court and whether they can start adding more costs and fees to a court arrangement agreed?

You need to check Trust Online or your Credit Files to see if the CCJ is registered and legal.


If it is legal, then you only pay to whom and how much that was agreed on the official Court documentation, unless the DCA applies for a variation from the Courts then ignore them.



NEVER telephone a DCA

If a DCA rings you, refuse to go through the security questions & hang up!

I would write to them stating that you were ordered by the court to pay the Claimant (Hewittsons)

and as you have had no further instruction from the court to pay a different Claimant

you must continue to make payments in accordance with the original order

otherwise you will be in breach of that order.


If they wish you to make payments to them then they should apply to the court to vary the order.
