BW legal and PRAC finance ltd are the same company owned and controlled by the same people. Now they can buy real debt or they can provide our information from various sources, but whatever you do, you don`t pay them anything without them providing evidence of alleged debt. Contact them with a request for access to the relevant data (PRAC, BW Legal and the company they claim to come from the initial debt) and ask them to provide all the information they have stored about you, in particular ask PRAC how much you bought that specific debt. If they don`t respond, report them to the ICO if the GDPR fails. Legally report the PRAC to the FCA and BW to the mediators of the legal service. Don`t pay without proof that the money is due. BW Legal collects receivables on behalf of a number of companies such as HRMC, N Power, O2, EE and many others listed below.

Even if you don`t think parking fees are fair, you shouldn`t ignore a legal BW parking fine. Obviously, someone within our utilities/owners is selling our data to these scammers. I was able to link to a completely different address where I live, although it`s not related to the address they say I owe money anyway. To the point where they connected the two, it was either to go to the trash or someone in two facilities sold my data. Claims I owe money E.on, I have never been an E.on customer! I don`t want to point out here where they can improve their fraudulent methods, but receiving letters and the website from bwlegals are very fake if you dig deep enough. I keep getting letters from these people saying I parked illegally at Newcastle Airport in June – I WAS NOT AT NEWCASTLE AIRPORT IN JUNE! They sent a final letter of formal notice today saying they would take further action if I did not pay £160.00 immediately and threatened to sue in the District Court. Looking forward to seeing them in court! BW Legal is not a judicial officer. Bailiffs are officials of the law and BW Legal must go through a lawsuit to prove that you do not want or cannot pay your debts before bailiffs are employed in recovery.
If the court agrees, bailiffs can be used to recover property and property that covers the amount of the debt. Yes, BW legal can sue you for a CCJ. BW Legal seeks a staggering number of county court orders (CCJ) when they take you to court and require a judge to ask you to pay if you ignored the collection agency (and you really owe them money).

Being legally harassed by BW or a debt collection agency can be extremely stressful, but there are things you can do. You have a few options if you are being harassed by BW Legal.

Debt collection agencies have no right to require a person to prove that they are not responsible for an unpaid invoice, according to attorney Gary Rycroft of Joseph A Jones & Co LLP. “The burden of proof is on the indebted company,” he says. Any debt collector in the UK must prove that the debtor is indeed liable for the debt.
This proof is often a signed contract in which the consumer promises to repay the debt according to the specified schedule. If BW Legal or a collection agency cannot provide this proof to the debtor within 30 days, the debt is uncollectible. There are several debt solutions in the UK, choosing the right one can take years on your debt, but the bad one can be expensive and time-consuming.
