I have been getting harassment email, goods and letters. The police have interviewed my sister and her husband. Although we have a little proof, the police have just issued warnings to the couple. I would like to take this to court as the police have said thee have not got the finances to see it through. Is there a no win no fee solicitor for this kind of crime, as this is not the first time we have suffered this with this couple?. A lot of the firms involved have sent us copies of the application forms filled in. One firm has a tape recording of a male ordering goods in my husbands name, but they will not release this unless it goes to court.
Alex, not as such. It is a case of them opening accounts in our names and address for harassment purpose.
Alex, yes. In terms of having to install a security camera, security lights on police advice. Telephone charges in contacting companies to explain it is not us on the forms. Some of these have been premium rate lines.
There has always been bad feeling between my sister and our selves. She has had bad feelings towards my other sister and brother. In 2009 I had to employ a solicitor to write to her to warn her against harassment and physical violence towards me. This particular episode has started because our father has developed dementia. My sister has taken him to live with her. She refuses to allow any of us other children to see him. In December of 2013, I contacted our local social services for help but they refused. The situation came to a head in July 2014 when social services had to become involved. My sister was payed a visit by social services which she resented. This resentment manifested itself by her telephoning my other sister and threatening to ' visit ' my brother. She has obtained LPA over our dad in April 2014 and we found that our dad lodged new documents with his will holder the same month.
Alex. She did this without the knowledge of other members of the family. She filed in the relevant forms. Office of the public guardian will not divulge who signed off the document stating our dads capacity.
After she was visited by the police who made it known to her that in their opinion she was the perpetrater the harassment stopped. We feel it is only a matter of time before it starts again. We want her prosecuted.
We have some evidence. We have forms returned to us from companies that have been submitted in our name. Block print. She has made two Freudian slips. On one she has given her own date of birth, not mine. Another she has given her own postal code, not mine. Another company has an order placed by telephone on tape and their fraud department will evidence this to a court. Given that we can identify the voice, what chance do we have of a private prosecution being successful should the police be reluctant to do so?
Excellent last answer. just the kind of information we were looking for.
