Whilst looking for information on a now closed thread. I was reading this thread and have since noticed not a lot has changed except the date and the names of the posters except a few whom are still around!

 

 

Even 10 years ago there were arguments and the like between posters and others. For this thread see here >> http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?44284-Bailiff-discussion-(-moved-from-hijacked-thread-)

 

 

So it goes to show you/we as posters can really never agree on any part of the Enforcement discussion. Maybe that if a few more regular posters read this thread in full can they too see how nothing has really changed!

 

 

The thread linked to in my post actually ran to 368 posts and the final post was by a regular post on CAG called citizenB user-online.png Site Team their final quote on this thread was >>

This latest book may be of interest for those with bailiff problems. Limited offer on at the moment.

The reason for this thread is to show how little has changed except posters names and dates.. Worth bearing in mind for future reference...

 

 

I guess I was bored today!! I wonder if they even remember this thread

I remember it very well indeed and in particular, the ongoing argument between BLFUK1 !!! (who is extremely knowledgeable about bailiff regulations) and 'Alison".

 

I had only just joined the forum when this thread started and made a few contributions (using a very old username name). A great deal of my early knowledge of the bailiff industry came from reading BLFUK'a posts.

Yes, I joined in the first year that the forum started (in 2006). In those very early days, I started posting under the username of Herbie and a year later in mid 2007, changed my username to Tomtubby. I started using the name of Bailiff Advice in 2014 (in the same year that the new regulations came into effect.

 

In 2006 the forum was incredibly busy as that was when the Tribunal Courts and Enforcement Bill (as it was at that time called) was going through Parliament.

I also asked a question or two . Blfuk took a great amount of flak on that thread but later he seemed to get a bit more respect on the Forum which he had earned in all fairness.

 

In addition, back then bailiffs were very much out of control and until CAG came along to help advise how to deal with bailiffs we were all pretty much in the dark about what we could challenge when they called. So there were any number of people who had been badly stung by rogue bailiffs

and took it out on Blfuk.

 

The new legislation has cut down the number of complaints about bailiffs though the resentment against the high fees now legally levied has not.

Yes not forgetting the part we played in stopping the use of force for civil debts.

I have been here since 2006 too!

 

First found the site when looking for help to deal with an old debt Capquest had bought. Then a few months later, I had all the fun with Welcome Finance, phoning relations and threatening to break their windows over partners debt, stuff like that.

Yes it was open season on Welcome back then, there are many Welcome agreements on here which were found to be unenforceable, they could never get the fees within the charges for credit for some reason.

Oddly enough, my ex fiance had all that hassle with her debt to them, but mine when I got behind after redundancy I too had a relative phoned and her windows threatend with being broken but that was it.

 

That was after the ex's problems though, and the Leeds Branch likely did not dare go any further after what happened between me and their doorstep collectors over her debt. :razz:

 

They did add around £11,000 in fees mind! Which vanished when it was discovered Managers were defrauding the accounts to make the company look in profit to the shareholders, when the reverse was true, and the Ombudsman took over direct running.

There is no doubt at all that the new regulations have been a success. Yes, the fees are high but what is being seen now is that more and more people are either paying the debt in full on receipt of the Notice of Enforcement, (when the fees are capped at £75) or alternatively, setting up a short term payment arrangement.
