  • BW Legal faking dates

    Last Saturday I got a surprise letter from the county court bailiffs dated 13th (saturday). All previous correspondence had gone to the address I used to live at, and moved from in the same week I had overstayed in a car park, despite changing my v5 address within 2 weeks, it all went there.

    anyway, I rang NCP who were named on the document and explained I had received a letter and queried what it was for. Eventually found out. They said they did not have my current address on file at all.

    I've applied for a set aside although it's just an issue of timing (although they could have found my address within the 12 months since the parking overstay.. of 20 minutes...)

    cut to today and I've had a letter from BW Legal dated 12th July advising that I haven't paid a CCJ and court have instructed bailiffs.

    my question is this... how could I be sent a letter dated prior to the first date I made contact (13th)with them and why would it arrive on 17th July if the date of 12th is accurate?

    is it legal to do this?
