Hi all,


I really hope you can help.


After going a bit OTT in university, i've recently got an ok job and have been trying to sort out my debts. It had been going quite well until I had some more bad news today.


Before I sold my car to save money in May 06 I received a £45 parking ticket, it was a bit harsh as the car was outside my house and a couple of months earlier we had checked with a trafic warden that it was ok to park there. I didn't pay the ticket and as my car was registered to my parents address, a bailiff from Swift Credit turned up there today to claim fees of £170 made up of the £45 original fine, 2x £25 admin letters and £75 for todays bailiff.


I recieved a letter from the court back in June saying that I had to pay £45 but being absouletly brassic and having other companies chasing me for money I was stupid and ignored it and hoped it would go away, which i thought it had until today. Swift say they sent 2 letters over the past couple of months but I have not received them (they had my parents address and trust me i would have known about it if they'd received them).


I accept that I should have just paid the fine even tho i had misleading advice from the trafic wardens but now I have no chance of paying £170; therefore i was hoping someone could give me advice on how to avoid/reduce the charges that Swift have added.


Thank you

File a late stat dec with the tec. You will need the pcn number and a scanner and email handy. Tell tec to email you the late stat dec form and they will . get them filled in and sworn at the local county/magistrates court and email them back while posting the originals bakc by post. this will put a hold on any bailiff action.
