#1 Collectica - chasing my daughters fine

Post by Sarahjt354 » 17 Jul 2017 19:58

Hi

My 21 yr old daughter receive a littering fine last year but asked me to pay (shes in Uni no money) which I did in Dec.

The last couple of months ive been hasseled by Collectica. I confirmed I had paid, sent paperwork and got council to revoke the warrant and thought that was the end of it.

Until today when an enforcement officer came.

He needed to see she wasnt living here and as she doesnt even have a room here I showed him. He said he was satisfied she didnt live here.

I asked him to leave - he refused saying I had to give him her contact details. I said no, due to the fact she has anxiety and that Id paid it.

I showed him my receipt, my bank statement clearly showing payment and all my handwritten notes re my conversations with everyone.

He still refused to leave.

I will of course contact the council legal team first thing to sort out the warrant but bailiff said hed be back tomorrow.

Can someone help me out with legalities please!

What can he legally do?

Seems you've dealt with him effectively. You should make a complaint to the creditor (the council) about his behaviour as they remain liable for the bailiff's actions.

You have no obligation to inform anyone of your daughter's address.
On 29/07/17, Compo said "If you are interested I actually typed the word label. My spell checker interpreted it as liable" Discuss.

I vaguely recall when this country was semi-civilised? Hounded for an alleged litter fine?

Can't wait to release footage of "butter couldn't melt agents on behalf of ******** money grabbing bullying twerps.."

And when complaints ensue it is...butter couldn't melt...won't be long now.

Ps. Flag it up with your local MP, media, anyone. These glorified bunch of thieving thugs need exposing. Whereby commission remains the biggest incentive and nothing much else, sad to think it is even allowed in a supposed civilised country?

My vid's been seen by a few weary albeit shocked onlookers. Those involved shall be ashamed of themselves, matter of time. It'll be shared.....

Have phoned all parties today:-

No warrant
Collectica confirm no further action
I questionned enforcement officer about his comment that he would come back tomorrow and why he wouldnt leave my house when satisfied my daughter did nit luve with me - no good answer.

I have put in a complaint as I genuinely think he was mennacing me to hand over money - Im absolutely disgusted!

You can report it as an offence under section 21 of the Theft Act 1968.

This is best done online with your local police force. Be detailed and upload all the evidence.

If so alleged, so the hassle, stress and worry continues? Another rogue agent after their comms? Wrong carrot and totally wrong stick.

Do these private plc type institutions really like pushing individuals to near breaking point. Just to get their readies. Aided and abetted sometimes by those who really ought to know better? What is it going to take.

A certain plc-type institution charged an individual over £1000 for two PCN's resulted in him committing suicide. All for a £385 fee and tried nick a bit extra.

The media says: Two £65 parking fines that had escalated to a debt of £1,019

According to the law, two £65 PCN attract £75 compliance stage fees and a single £235 enforcement stage fee. That gives a legitimate debt of £565.

Newlyn is yet to explain why it demanded £1019. He was defrauded by the sum of £504.

If the bailiff company hadn't lied about the true extent of their fees, Jerome Rodgers might still be alive.

Two "butter couldn't melt" individuals aka agents also believed they too had unlimited powers...likelihood i.e., driven by uncapped comms?

Will be revealed for all their fairness, integrity and ability to try and incriminate others for the above. Sad really. But truth catches up in the end. And it will 100%. Not that they worked for said above company honest.

Tip do not be intimidated by these glorified thugs. Those who think they're some kind of pillars of society? Couldn't be further from the truth.......

Collectica have confirmed he was wearing a camera which Im pleased about because I asked him if he was satisfied my daughter didnt live there and he said yes, then refused to leave.

Surely this means he was there illegally?
