Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ex member, fallen on severly hard times. Typical of most Bill Oddies kept to himself until totally out of control and baillifs at the door wanting his kids, organs and porn stash.

    On a serious note, its just taken eight full working days and two long nights to get him sorted, and get his Mrs to stop being petrified of the front door.

    The car was reposessed, the Mortgage in arrears and due for repo, several court dates for CCJs, some CCJs in place with warrants of execution...... all totalling a mere £41,685

    With a bit of patience, some grown up help and a 'fcuk em' attitude we managed to get some of the debt written off, some of it reduced, interest capped, a suspended posession on the house and put him / them on a repayment plan at a minimal amount that they can afford.

    The only debt that created a problem was council tax that was in the hands of a baillif, and was causing me major dramas. The only way (he'd weighed Levvy on goods and had entered the house) I could sort him out was to make offers of payments etc, but the charges were going to end up being more than the £780 outstanding bill

    After four days of dealing witht he bailif I told him what was happening, told him he was an ex serviceman, and his appraoch changed 180 degrees. He called me the night before last to say 'I've made all the baillifs charges disappear, removed the levvy have arranged a call back for three weeks time giving you time to clear the bill (just the councl tax).

    I thanked him and told him I'd send him a slab of wifebeater.... an hour later he sent me a text

    Turns out he was a Royal Marine Reserve for a number of years and he'd checked out what we do......... :lol:

    I paid the council tax bill yesterday, now they just owe from april this year which isn't at hearing level so they have a bit of time.

    I relayed the weeks work to the family and in all honesty that, to press is probably the most rewarding case I've been involved in yet.

    So people, once again I'm on the scrounge...

    So cough up you slags :D

    780 to find and any excess can get them both a deserved night out, or can go toward this years council tax liabilty.

    I'll start the ball rolling by covering 25 for a CV to Meridian, he is very very capable but his confidence has taken a knock.... I'm sure with some coaching and the wond behind him he could double his income.

    Further BUMP from here ...

    I am broadly aware of how much time and effort MDN had personally put into this case. It is probably fair to say that the case was virtually full-time ... and that from a bloke who actually has a day job to do.

    However, I won't big him up too much, because he already thinks he's utterly wonderful. 8)

    I'll do some exploring behind the sofa .... there must be a coin or 4 down there somewhere.

    We needed £780 ... a bit less now .... but a long way to go.
