Its old material well before Schedule 12.

It was collated from early BHF and DWB in the days when enforcement really was a wild west.

Each of them all link to a specific event. The Marston one is a reference to the crank and her lackeys who at the time were reporting CAG forum members to Marston. Caught by a BBC Panorama camera van when a Marston bailiff attended an address surreptitiously passed to the crank as a CAG members new address.

I think Marston ditched the crank and the CAG after that. They didn't like a BBC researcher asking questions.

The Rossendalews doormat levy was big in those days, as was the Hit & Run policy they called a "1st call bailiff" a person without a certificate, then a "van bailiff" a bailiff with a certificate, and that exercise both statutory visit fees under the then, council tax fees regulations.

Rundles are big on Council tax. They set up fragmented repayments which the bailiff manages to 'lose' and the debtor continues overpaying the bailiff long after the liability order tax and fees have been paid off. It absorbed lots of manpower unravelling all those repayments and reconciling them with Rundles and the council - especially when the debtor paid the bailiff in cash.
