How much do you owe? Was there a personal guarantee please?
hi , there was no personal guarantee given ,when I closed the company no debts to anyone, only the £50,000,that the other side were awarded ,and as I said the company had no money and on advice I closed the company .
Have you been to the Police please?
no ,I believe they are intimidating my wife and myself.
They being who - the bailiffs?
no ,the claimant ,they sent a letter to my wife who was the company sec, this morning threating bailiffs and if no money going to the press ,with my wifes name and my name .all over the local papers .
You should report it to the Police as an offence may have been committed.
It may be harassment - and case law shows that a creditor can harass a debtor, where in this case of course your wife is the sec, not the debtor.
So report it to the police in the first instance.
If they do go to the press and start publishing things, they can't give home address etc
This would be a breach of privacy
If they also lie this is an action of libel or slander and you would be able to take High Court action to stop them
But the first port of call is the Police as this could be harassment
