Hi all i might be looking for a baliff type person, (big and scary looking to help recover a very overdue debt)

This would be from a company in Wivelsfield East sussex

Why not just hire a bailiff?

They are very effective - one High Court Judge threatened to wind up the Prudential on non-compliance with a Stat Demand...

Depends what you do. I normally go down the legal route but that does not always work.
Most of the time turning up in person does work.
For some reason people tend to pay when a big, bald, bearded bloke covered with tattoos appears and ask for payment.
I have never had to threaten anyone, just turning up and asking works.

In reply to Dax H: With respect I've had to collect non-payments in many different ways over the last 18 years, but there's a bit of a shelf life on how many times you can send in the 'boys' before you get yourself into trouble, plus its not very professional.

In reply to browndog33: I have not sent the boys in, I have called in myself and politely requested payment.
Are you saying that because I happen to look like some sort of outlaw biker that I should not collect money owed by my customers?.
Normally I go down the solicitor / court order route (99% pay on the first letter) but sometimes that is ignored and sometimes they have closed down and opened up again overnight in the same place doing the same thing with the same name but with the letters UK added to the end of it having wiped out my debt and all others as well.
Often a polite request in person with absolutely no threats at all will get you paid.
I make sure that I have a recording of the payment request as well just in case anyone claims that I stepped over the line.
