    • Hello again   So just a brief update.   A month ago I cancelled all bank direct debits and debit cards on file with paypal and explicitly stated to my bank Nationwide over the phone to ensure they block PayPal from making any deductions or payment requests. I since got a new debit card and have not logged into paypal since.   Randomly I received an email from paypal yesterday stating that I made a payment of £1.00 to ebay. I couldn't understand how this could have happened if paypal don't have any payment details of mine. I logged into my bank app to confirm and saw a £1.00 ebay paypal fee. I logged into my paypal account and went into the payment section and to my disbelief they had my new debit card on file. I immediately rang up nationwide and asked how this could have happened and they said the following:   That it is not unusual for companies like paypal to contact Visa and request new debit details if the one they have on file has become unuseable or has been cancelled etc.    I said that this surely must be illegal and asked them why the transaction wasnt blocked in the first instance like I requested. They told me when it comes to visa it is out of their control. I obvioulsy lost it with them and threatened to close my account in which they put me on hold, then came back and said they have put a block on paypal and asked visa to refuse requests for debit card details in future. I have since cancelled my debit card and requested a new one.   Paypal have clearly made an attempt to get access to my bank account/debit card by means without my knowledge or consent. They also seemed to have tested whether the card works with a £1.00 sellers transaction fee which I dont know what its for. Luckily they have not been able to deduct the £925 but obvioulsy could have done if I hadnt noticed the fact they got my new details.   What should I do now regarding this? So far only the financial ombudsman seem to be willing to pursue and help me with the original claim wih PayPal but I feel this is something additional that requires investigation.   any of your thoughts are welcome.   Thanks
    • It all depends from who your manager is and what company you work for. In my workplace (very large multinational) the super peetakers are the most respected. The rule seems to be that if you tell everyone challenging you that they are victimising you and then you do whatever you want, you get rewarded. So I joined this movement a long time ago but with a slight difference that I finish my work to requirement, no more, no less. Just because I like the job, not because I feel I must please them.
    • The County Court doc was dated 2nd Sept so served + 5 = 6th Sept 28 Days from then = 3rd Oct. 
    • Thanks. I’ll put a date in my diary to enter my defense.  I’ll paste the points that you list. 
    • Just back from a short holiday, so back on the case! I have now written to the landowner, the site agent, (both re the contract with VCS), Tescos HQ and Tescos local manager complaining bitterly, without any response from anyone to date. No I'm not unduly surprised. However, my daughter's MP (Lee Rowley) has been extremely supportive and willing to help as a mediator, but has no legal expertise. He has updated me on Parliament's Q and A situation re the 2019 Act and Code of Practice, but the answers are the usual waffle and so I've asked him to champion the cause & demand progress. I explained there could be no mediation as we don't believe VCS has any entitlement. No news of a court date yet.

Panorama goes undercover to expose the bailiffs who seize cars and demand huge fees in what has become a multimillion-pound business: chasing unpaid parking tickets. Bailiffs recovering debts for local authorities say they do a public service, hunting down those who don't pay up. But Panorama has evidence that some bailiffs are intimidating motorists, exaggerating their powers and pumping up fees. As councils report increasing revenues from penalty fines, reporter John Sweeney investigates whether new laws to curb the bailiffs' worst excesses go far enough

We will see if they mention the usual kick-back provision which enriches the council.

If they do not mention it it will be a serious omission.

The might mention it but It depends on how strongly JBW, Collectica, Newlyn and the other interested parties like the LAs and the MET with the joint stop and pull ANPR scrams lean on the BBC or indeed seek an injunction prevent broadcast if they do.


We could do with some help from you.

The bailiff: A 12th Century solution re-branded as Enforcement Agents for the 21st Century to seize and sell debtors goods as before Oh so Dickensian!

Given that it is only a 30 minute programme there is little time for subjects such as 'kick-backs'. Clearly the programme is only concerned with the enforcement of local authority parking charge notices. I am pleased to hear the 'gossip' that another TV exposee is planned regarding the awful practice of the 'Bailiff and Police Roadside Operations'. Such a programme is long overdue and will surely embarrass the Metropolitan Police.

It will be interesting to see what occurs regarding a third party claim during one of these egregious Bailiff ANPR goes kerching and police stop and give the car to the bailiff operations after April 6th

The Guardian shows in an article today (bailiffs lose powers under new laws) it is similarly ill informed about current laws.

Some of the commentators are blissfully clueless of the mayhem to come with the measures especially the new stuff still coming out like the doubling almost of the fee for application to stay or vary a CCJ payment, or interpleader, the sales fee of £110, the daily storage charge, all that could make the LO a council like NELC obtain for that penny arrears a thousand quid or so.in almost the bilnk of an eye and a couple of visits.
