    • I subscribe to a company called Audible - they are owned by Amazon and they provide audio books. I work as an HGV driver and so I find listening to a book is great for swallowing up the long distances being travelled on the road.   Quite recently, I bought a book and it is proving to be an eye opener in relation to the subject of weight loss. One of its main topics is to discover why so many of us are 'obese'. In the book the author (who seems to be a respected Doctor and researcher) goes on to say that the human body itself is responsible for gaining weight and it is not because of people with low willpower. It also shines a light on what food companies have been doing over the last 40 or so years which has contributed to the existing obsity problem.   I put it out here because I think it would be a great read or listen for those, who like me want to lose weight and keep it off.   It may be better to obtain the printed copy of the book because there seems to be graphs and pictures which I am not able to view because its an audio book.   The book is called: The Obesity Code Unlocking the Secrets of Weightloss by Dr Jason Fung.   I have not finished the book yet so I have not got to the conclusions bit but I notice by doing an Amazon search that there is also an Obsity Code Cookbook so that will be my next purchase.   I will say that what I have heard from the book so far, it seems very balanced and it looks like common sense mixed in with practical advice which will undoubtedly help a lot of people.   I will let you all make up your own minds about it though.   Regards   Alan
    • I wonder if anyone can help me. I had a loan with a high street bank from about 10 years ago and I had to stop paying because I lost my job. I reduced my payment to a token payment for a few years but I then ceased this some years ago because I took some advice from an online forum which said that I should ask a ‘Subject Access Report’. I did this and I also asked for a copy of the contract with both signatures which highlighted that myself and the bank had a contract and what its terms were. As the loan was made up of an overdraft and a formal loan I thought they would have paperwork. However, eventually the bank responded by saying that they had no contract and they admitted that as such it was not enforceable in court. Over the last year, the bank have again appointed Moorcroft Debt Recovery Limited to use their strongarm tactics. I have not been responding to the last couple of letters asking me to contact them to arrange a payment plan and now their letters are becoming more threatening. Here is the text of their latest letter……. Quote   We are aware that you have failed to agree an affordable repayment plan with us concerning the above account.   As no agreement has been reached we are now in the process of reviewing your account to consider the steps which may be taken in relation to further debt recovery action. The options include recommending one of the following:   ·         1. Continue in our attempts to contact you by letter and phone. ·         2. Instruct a local representative to arrange to call at your home address to try to re-establish contact with you.   To prevent possible further action you must contact us. Failure to contact us by the 22/10/19 will result in one of the aforementioned debt recovery actions being undertaken without further notice.  Unquote As you can see, they are now getting more threatening. I really do not want people knocking at my door – does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do to sort this situation? I do not want to pay for something that seems unenforceable but I do not want knocks at my door either. Any help would be appreciated.   Kind regards    
    • Yes it was a tomlin/consent order I have a recent statement its not showing any additional charges on it. The statement does not show the balance to pay each month, as the contract was terminated in March 17 and the termination bill was added to the account so my payments reduce the account balance £14262.38  Capital £6995.00 Interest £7213.38 Plus 3 x £18 charges  I presume if it went to court again I would be notified?    I thought court costs and charges could increase a balance owing but not be included in arrears or court proceedings when listing the amount owing, or am I wrong?    
    • Check to see if they are adding monthly charges inflating arrears as per DX.

Marstons Final Notice for old No ins fine i thought i'd paid

Recommended Posts

Good Morning 

I have just received a rather threatening hand deliverd red final notice from an enforcement agent probably from marston holdings for the sum of £243.75 the only info has on it is  reference number and client magistrates court i haven't had any dealings with any court claims recently.

It says he will be coming back later at 7pm

 

full payment needs or he will be removing goods 

 

I thought only high court enforcement could do that 

 

any advise would be appreciated 

Many thanks

This is literally the first you have ever heard of it?

You have no idea what the debt could be for?

Could it be for unpaid Council Tax?

 

It's not my area of expertise, but the only debt enforcement I've heard of that involves the magistrates court is for unpaid Council Tax. 

 

One of the experts will come along and advise soon, but I understand from previous threads that there are different rules on enforcement when it's unpaid council tax, if that's what it is.

Do you have enough information on the letter to be able to ring the court and ask what this is about?

Hi Honeybee

its says magistrates court

so cant be a consumer debt CCJ nor CTAX

 

it must be an old council parking ticket or traffic offence or a fine for something like rail travel.

If you have heard nothing whatsoever about this before, never received any paperwork at all, and don't know what it is about, the only way you can find out what it is for is contact Marstons and ask. You can't ask the court direct as it doesn't say which magistrates court it is.

 

It's odd that you never received any previous paperwork but that Marstons know where you live now. Have you moved recently? Could paperwork have been sent to  a previous address and when Marstons found you'd moved they tracked you down to your current address?

if its a CCJ there are no rights of forced entry

if it is a magistrates fine, then it is rare for forced entry to be given and they would have to apply for it directly with the relevant magistrates court

 

not sold a car in recent years have you?

not moved in recent years have you?

Hi

 

been in touch with the collections agent apparently its from an old court fine that i thought i had paid in full apparetly there was small amount of £8.75 still owing to Marstons 

they never once contacted me about the outstanding amount

they have now issued an enforcement amount of £235 to collect £8.75

 

I'm absolutely livid what an absolute shower  

 

is there any thing that can be done 

 

agent says i cant pay in enstallments and that he will charge me again to visit a second time not sure how that works

 

paperwork uploaded from agent

thread tidied

docs sorted to one file and redacted properly in post 9

 

you need to see a copy of the notice of enforcement 

as if it was not issued to where you live now

[i'e..does NOT have your correct current address on it

they cannot charge the £235 fee

only the £75 fee when you get the NOE to/containing the correct address

Hi DX100uk

 

the correct address has been on all the documentation from the original court fine and from the DC

very reluctatly I have paid 

when i went on their web site and typed in the reference number it said the outstanding amount was the £8.75

when i spoke to them about this they said it takes 24 hours for the web site to up date with the new £235 fee because of the visit today from the DC

 

can I try and claim it back ?

 

Many thanks for your input

whats a DC?

If you mean BAILIFF - a Debt Collector [DCA] is NOT A BAILIFF never confuse the two

 

so long ago you did have a NOE 

and now you've had the enforcement visit hence the £235 added

can't see how you can get out of that sadly

 

bit of a shame for only £8.75.
