    • Thanks. In that case when it comes to preparing my court bundle I will remover the Bradbury v UPS case. And I agree, @occysrazor 's case is the strongest asset I have in defence. Hopefully the necessary literature will be available by the time of my court date.  
    • Some of this seems to hinge on him not being properly instructed by POL or their legal reps. He was said to be an independent expert but doesn't seem to have known that he should reveal all evidence he was aware of and not just the bits that suited Fujitsu/him. I know he asked for immunity from prosecution, is it still the case that Wyn Williams doesn't want to do this? The last I saw there was still a perjury ivestigation.
    • So I like a bit of fun with the horses and have a few profitable tipsters, when i make a profit i re-invest and try more, nice little way to work on the side. This site looked promising however after joining a Telegram group I was not at all happy with the service as it was completely dead.. a week went past... I thought it was brokedn (expecting 14 tips by now)... 2 weeks went passed.. a tip came in about something happening in a few weeks... the month was nearly up (£49 couldnt be recouped by these bets) I complained via email asking for a refund as it was not as advertised, website says 1-2 tips a day, i expected that.  There's no way i could recoup £49 a month on 1 or two tips.  I didnt get a reply. I tried again,  no reply. Ive then had to up the email wording to request Im now really not happy. I get a reply and it appears they agree a refund (this doesn't get processed) Fed up i send a notice before action letter. I then get various emails of a very unprofessional manner and one towards the end that sounds a bit like a threat. I would encourage others to be very cautious about this website and if that was a threat (I know where you live, i have your postcode)  It becomes a police matter.  Im sure, it is just a recording of my personal data so I cannot be allowed in the telegram group again.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Hello, this is my first post here and I desperately need advice.

 

I owed £2,357.13 after a CCJ judgement to a veterinary practice.

My dog had his leg amputated.

The vet gave me a choice.

Euthanize my dog or amputate the leg. I wanted neither.

Did not have £1700 to pay for this. Hence the debt.

 

No excuses for not paying, but my 6 year old daughter has a life threatening condition called 'Rett Syndrome'.

She had been in and out of hospital around the time all this happened and nothing else seems important except her.

The letters were put to one side and simply forgotten about.

 

On the 20th July at 8am,

A bailiff called from 'Court Enforcement Services Ltd' saying I owed £4286.76.

This was the first time I had seen him, or even heard this! £2,357.13 to £4286.76

 

As soon as the door opened, his foot went across the threshold to stop me closing it.

I explained I was getting my 6 year disabled daughter ready for school, and could he come back.

He said no.

He also said had I not opened the door, he would have broke in with the locksmith who was waiting down the road.

 

 

If I didn't pay now, he was calling vans and porters to take my things and this would cost me £250 plus the porters too.

I had to pay or he was clearing my house, everything but my daughters wheelchair.

 

As a HCEO he was entitled to come in and I couldn't stop him or so he said.

 

He would not part with any paperwork until I had paid him.

I told him I never had that kind of money, which I didnt.

The most I could get was £1300.

That would have to be taken from my daughters account with charity money raised.

I showed him this, (not that he cared).

 

 

Transferred it into my own account and gave this to him crying.

 

I then rang my Dad, who loaned me the rest. Both were paid by debit card. The debt was piad in full.

 

All the time he was there, he sat on my sofa watching me feed my daughter smirking and on Facebook.

 

No warning of him coming,

no letters,

nothing just him turning up.

 

 

Ironically the next day. The notice of enforcement came saying I had till the 19th July to pay £2558.88!!

 

A DIFFERENCE OF £1727.88 OVERNIGHT - no explanation of what for - I asked and was told 'probably solicitors fees'

 

After an email to the said company for a breakdown, I was sent this

 

High Court Writ - £2468.88

 

Compliance Stage (Administration Fee): £90.00 inc VAT

 

1st Enforcement Stage : £228.00 inc VAT + if the debt is above £1,000, there is a 7.5% = £228.00 plus £133.18

 

2nd Enforcement Stage: £594.00 inc VAT = £594.00

 

Sale or Disposal Stage: £630.00 inc VAT = £630.00 there is a 7.5% fee of the amount above £1000> = £130.81

 

There are 2 compliance stage fees of £90 - one is added to the notice of enforcement, a second to the final bill.

The CCJ judgement debt was £2357.13 yet on their notice of enforcement it says its £2468.88.

 

I hope this makes sense, and apologise if it doesnt. Im still in a state of shock.

Can anyone please advise me what I can now do. I am devastated that I have been fooled and lied too like this.

 

Thank You.

 

Incidentally - The HCEO is one from the TV programme 'Cant pay, we'll take it away'

if I'm reading the right

this was your private home and not a business address

 

 

he has NO RIGHT WHATSOEVER to put his foot in your door

its a civil debt NO a criminal one, which does not give him any powers of forced enter

nor the use of locksmiths.

 

 

as far as I'm aware the 'enforcement' fees are £75 for the first letter

then £235 if they have to visit.

 

 

sorry you need to complain very loudly and very forcefully to everyone you can.

 

 

if I were you I'd contact your bank and reverse that transaction

and also get your father? to do a chargeback on his card too.

 

 

if you story is true

 

 

what the HCEO has done here is TOTALLY illegal.

Perhaps the name of the HCEO should be witheld until those with more expert knowledge have taken a look at this.

 

Does not sound good though. Can an HCEO put their foot in a door like this and act in the way the OP says they did ?

 

Makes my blood boil . I would have punched them and taken the consequences. Putting a foot in the door is a violent action and many people would react.

We could do with some help from you.

Correct, he has no right to push in or jam a foot in the door.

 

Wrong on the fees though.

 

Compliance is £75 + vat.

 

1st fee is 190+vat + 7.5%.

2nd and sale also sound correct amounts.

 

To the op, do you have any proof he did what your saying he did? Without that, you will get nowhere. Any video? Any recording? Was the Ea recording?

You must also understand that we often get pushed out of a property and will jam feet in door etc to stop it being closed. If we have had peaceful entry then its legal. Fir all we know, a second side to this story could be just that. But we will likely never know unless the op has video etc.

A fight that will land the debtor in prison and we still empty the house as we would just enter another tine on the courts order. We may even walk away as we have been thrown out, but the next occasion, with the police, 2 or 3 bailiffs and a court order to force entry.

Nice that you see it as a game, but real life is not a game.

There is no defence to the bailiff

 

No right of entry

No locksmith

No putting foot in door

Completely out of order and illegal

 

We have a right of entry, but no right to FORCE entry, except on magi fine, which this is not.

Locksmiths can be and are used, but only after a CGA or prior peaceful entry. A court order would be required to force entry after being extracted from a property by a debtor using force though. Which, in this case, may have been that the EA got lawful entry, and was then pushed out...but....if he kept his foot in the door, then he hasn't yet been forced out completely and the debtor would now be obstructing.

Depends on the other side of the story to determine what is legal and illegal, but of this story is an exact statement of what happened, then yes, I would agree. But without video/witnesses, the OP may not have a leg to stand on, and even worse, may incur further costs in trying to pursue.

How did he get from a foot in the door to sitting on the settee whilst she as getting her disabled daughter ready for school....shows no sensativity or compassion, would this lady not be classed as vulnerable? What kind of human being sits and smirks whilst a lone female parent is looking after her disabled child?

I think this is the same guy using his arm and body preventing a lady to close the door.

 

http://www.channel5.com/shows/cant-p...demand-special

 

Interesting how he keeps his arm in between the door and door framing preventing the lady from

closing it and then starts on about being assaulted. (aprox 30 min to the program)

 

Also it's been mentioned on CAGlink31.gif regarding the way things are going we will hear more and more

about people loosing temper and assaulting a bailiff as in the beginning of the program.

 

Regards to all.

In some cases it could be worth requesting a copy of the body own camera but in this particular case, it should have been turned off if a young child was present in the room.

The only genuine costs made were the compliance stage and enforcement stage.

 

 

The rest he made up.

 

 

no goods were removed or even listed for removal.

 

 

I paid him on his FIRST and ONLY visit. I had no choice.

 

Also the reason he got inside was because he told me I couldn't stop him.

 

 

I asked him to wait outside, as I was getting my little girl ready for school.

He said no.

 

 

My daughter cant be left alone for more then 5/10 mins.

She was upstairs.

It was a catch 22.

I couldn't close the door, he wouldn't move.

..my daughter was upstairs..I had to get her.

 

He made a point of telling me his camera was running.

 

 

My husband was there, and told him to get his foot out of the door

..thats when he said it was being filmed and he would call the police if he was threatened again.

Yes, you need to make a complaint, outlining what you have here including a breakdown of the costs. Ask how sale stage fees were warranted, although if he had a van, just the act of starting to lift goods can warrant sale stage.

 

You need to try and get a copy of the video before it gets "lost" in order that should you take it to an EAC2 complaint, you will have it. Unlikely it will be supplied to you though. You may have to start the eac2 to get them to show it.

 

Don't forget, enf1 is charged if they attended to make an arrangement, then go straight to enf2 if no prior contact, and sale stage can be added if you refuse to pay at any point.

 

No, having a disabled child does NOT automatically make you vulnerable, BUT it may have put you in that category which should have allowed you more time to sort the matter.

 

That doesn't mean the bailiff would walk away, it just means that he should allow more time, bit as your husband was there, that is negated as you could have dealt with bailiffs while husband sorted child. That's not nice but it is the way the court would look at it.

 

You would be better to concentrate a complaint about the bailiff entering with force and the fees added. Also, depending on the dates on the NOE, that would be a basis for complaint too if its not run its course.

Thanks everyone.

 

If I approached my bank and asked for a chargeback, would they allow it given the amount?

 

 

How would I explain to them what happened?

 

 

Worried they might think I was trying to pull a fast one.

God knows I'm not.

 

 

But hard to believe I handed that amount over without seeing a breakdown of the costs.

I could kick myself now.

Amazing what you do when under duress....

 

Also, the debt amount differs on the CCJ and the notice of enforcement..plus 2 £90 compliance stage fees.

...its a complete mess..

..not to mention the made up fees

....does that not count as fraud?

 

Feel like crying.

..lost everything through a bully boy bailiff and his lies..

...now begins the task of trying to get it back.....:???:

The difference between the judgment and the notice should be £111.75. That's the transfer costs associated with high court transfers. There ay be a few pence of interest too.

 

I would be wary of a charge back, as the debt will then be outstanding again, and you may find they just apply to court for a warrant to gain entry, as they will claim prior peaceful entry so they have the right to re-enter. Sounds far fetched, but I have seen it done on a charge back case.

You will also find that they will robustly defend the chargeback in the first place as chip and pin. So it's not fraud and they may also state that its not "under duress". The bailiff had give the choice of removal or payment. That's what they are there for, and more and more banks are refusing to call that duress.

Where I live you might get the three hits from some of the characters around here, debtor hits you you hit the floor, ambulance hits 90mph, while you are on the deck your van is on bricks as the local scrotes hate bailiffs and will have the wheels away.

 

That is the problem with HCE though the fees are higher. Don't the HCEO EA's want to get their claws into CCA debt, and Student Loans?

We could do with some help from you.
