Maybe they read this thread as I received a letter from them today.

 

This is only the second letter I've ever received from them.

 

I notice they state may instead of will so I suspect it's just another threat o gram.

 

Should I continue to ignore?

page 13 here makes interesting reading ..not.

 

 

its rather misleading that they don't clearly state

and neither do the rossers [ I wonder why!!]

that this is a debt collection agency

and NOT their bailiffs wing

 

 

powerless to do anything

Why do you want it in PDF?

 

So I just ignore then?

 

I thought as much but wondered why they suddenly wrote a letter after so many ignored phone calls over the last couple of years. If they do decide to take action through the Scottish sheriff court will I be informed beforehand?

I still get about 2-3 calls a week but my phone automatically rejects them and they leave a message on my voice mail which I just delete. I wonder if there is a human being calling me or an auto dialler?

I have lived in Scotland since 2008.

 

 

In 2013 I received legal aid for a court case in Manchester which I lost.

 

 

A few days after the case I received a threatening letter from Rossendales debt collectors based in England demanding payment of £500.

 

 

The threatening manner of the letter was unnecessary and I called them to ask who they were as I thought I would pay the legal aid agency.

 

 

Their attitude upset me so I took advice and during this I learned from this site that I shouldn't pay any money to Rossendales I should in fact ask the LA agency to take the debt back and pay them directly.

 

I contacted the LA but they refused to take the debt back.

At this juncture I should mention there was some confusion as the LA agency had cocked up with mistaken identities and sent me someone else's debt for 9K.

 

 

I was confused as Rossendales asked me for £500 while the LA agency asked me for 9K. It took quite a while to sort out as the LA agency I found out really are quite incompetent.

 

I received numerous calls a week from Rossendales.

When I answered there was no one on the other side of the line so I hung up.

This went on for a few weeks until I blocked them as they were calling me while I was at work and meetings.

 

 

To this day I still receive automated responses on my voicemail which I ignore.

 

I have no problem paying but I won't pay Rossendales and the LA agency won't take the debt back so I'm in a quandary.

 

I've been informed as it's a government debt it won't be time barred so this could go on forever or if they decide to take court action.

 

Recently I've been watching 'The Sheriffs are coming' on YouTube.

I know this is based in England and English law but it's made me wonder what action they could take up here.

I'd hate for them to take the Scottish equivalent of a high court writ and come knocking on my door unexpectedly and seize goods.

 

Is this possible in Scotland?

Not panicking, just looking for alternate opinions.

 

I do wish you'd stop using acronyms. I have no idea what they mean.

No they didn't do that. They tried with the 9K debt that wasn't mine but I disputed it. I never signed into that agreement.

 

I thought I would post on here to get someone's opinion from Scotland.

yes I did think that after seeing you'd viewed it on youtude

 

 

DCBL are High Court Enforcement Officers

gov't don't use them..

they don't need too.

 

 

which is why its strange they haven't taken the option available to them

as andy points too if they were that confident they are correct in you owing this money.

 

 

as you've already done by cleverly questioning them

you've seen that they made a mistake before

whats to say this is not another one.....urm...
