    • nothing new always been that way for 25+yrs now i had voip lines with NTL back in the late 90's which is why a real trucall box or a handset with real truecall software in it is SO good.   on average i get about 25-35 of these calls a month NONE get thru  the ones that spoof UK or mobile numbers are still screened are easily dealt with the truecall system   if they are real, the only thing they have to do is speak and you get an alert ring to listen to whom call with the option to accept or ZZapp them. once zapped that number never gets thru again.   its worthy to note that the scammers only ever use disconnected numbers, or fake numbers after a known local UK dialling code well the truecall software already knows these numbers as it gets the same databases the scammers use. if the number doesnt come up on the fake/disconnected list, it also then checks if the UK number is listed active UK and will auto put people thru   very clever little device worth every penny and mine is from 2006 when i joined CAG.
    • No the info on comms log isn't quite right,   I hadn't worked since Xmas due to bereavement but I wasn't staying in Somerset since the Xmas. The comms log is very deceitful indeed and after I had finished evaluating it fully I came to the conclusion MB are very manipulative, they lie, cheat and twist the truth, but it only takes the slightest slip up and everything crumbles.   You see in order for MB to have taken any further steps they have to be entitled to take them. So when they lie and try to deceive the truth prevails 😊, so to send a copy of a Default Sums Notice dated 15/1/17 that doesn't exist on the log anywhere and Ive never had the original and then fail to include one in the SAR that is listed on the log as generated on 18/1/17 (not had this one either)  doesn't the consequence of that 1 act prevent them from any further action until the notices are served    86 (e) Notice of default sums (5)If the creditor or owner fails to give the debtor or hirer the notice under this section within the period mentioned in subsection (2), he shall not be entitled to enforce the agreement until the notice is given to the debtor or hirer.       But I am reducing the complaint and sticking to basics

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Hi, I have a letter delivered through letterbox by sheriff officers.

I have c/tax arrears close to 5k during period wife was terminally ill.

The letter is a CHARGE FOR PAYMENT OF MONEY from Stirling park.

 

After wife passed away 3 years ago it has taken me that time to earn almost a full-time income at the minimum hourly rate.

I also have a part-time self-employed income.

 

My mortgage was in high arrears but I have been paying £50 extra to mortgage for the 3 years and paid every month, so arrears coming down.

 

I wrote recently to Stirling Park offering £50 a month with a review in every 6 months as my income increased or not.

 

They wanted me to call them to discuss it.

However, I crapped out of that as I had heard stories of how you have to tell them where you work, bank details etc and how folk had wages arrested.

 

I really do want to pay this debt off,

however,

my house has negative equity due to the slump since 2008.

if they have my bank details and arrest my wages.

I miss the mortgage and they will seize the house.

They have been absolute unfair with me.

 

How can I get a deal with them without giving my bank and employer etc?

 

Also,

I have a car on finance through a high-interest company

so the remainder of the balance is higher than car value but I need it to get to work.

 

Can they seize my car or items on finance?

 

My payment record with mortgage and car over last 2 years is good with all months paid to show I can pay with an arrangement I can afford.

 

Anyone got accurate advice on this.

If I lose car-I'm screwed.

If the house is repossessed I lose thousands, increasing my debt.

 

I have absolutely no equity whatsoever.

 

All the furniture in my house is a wreck.

 

To make matters worse.

The job I am in would sack me if I had an arrestment.

 

It's a job of trust I have served well.

 

Not dealing with money but a job of trust all the same.

contact the council directly whom you owe the CTAX money too.

tell the your story and that you are in dire straights.

 

you need to be pro active on this

as the sheriff officers WILL arrest your wages/bank account by hook or by crook

 

who's the council?

and how long has this CTAX not been paid?

 

are you getting all the benefits you are entitled too as well.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

 

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

 

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Contact your local elected councillor immediately, details should be on the web. Email and phone. Also copy in the local elected head

Of council.

 

Several threads here over the last month illustrating how they have stopped this type of action. In my situation they stepped in immediately to prevent an AOE!

 

Also the elephant in the room here. Have you been claiming your single person’s rebate. If not they will owe you money and you have every right to claim for it!

We could do with some help from you.

I'm working lots of night shifts so I can do all this on Monday.

 

I'm working very long hours nights.

 

Question is

-Do I have to reveal my bank details and employment details to the council or Stirling Park??

 

And the other question that's important because I live in a very rural area and have to travel far to work.

 

CAn they seize my car if its still under finance and worth less than what I owe?

no and no

 

but they can force you too via the court

you are in Scotland

its not like down south

they don't do things like seize cars etc.

 

but they can and WILL arrest your wages and bank account and you wont know about it till it happens.

 

but as this seems to be a historic debt, that would already of happened by now if they wanted too.

sorry but delaying this by another 5 days might be your downfall

if you can type here

you can use your phone

go ring the council NOW.

the last time I tried to speak to council about payment plan

they told me they would only discuss it if I was making a payment that day.

 

I didn't have money on me then and they also wanted all my work and bank details.

To repeat,

 

I am assuming you have been living alone?

 

If so you are entitled to the single person 25% discount.

 

This could add up to thousands of pounds over the years that could be taken off your debt!

 

If you haven’t claimed this,

call the council ASAP Monday.

 

They might even owe you money?

We could do with some help from you.
